Voigtlander 35mm Classic Nokton MC vs Color Skopar Review

I made another quick test of these two lenses. The Voigtlander Color Skopar II is a great little lens, no focus shift and super sharp. I am glad I own it, especially when I only paid $350 with hood and B&W UV Filter. Now, the Classic MC is another story… Voigtlander Color-Skopar Pan 35mm f/2.5…

Voigtlander Nokton vs Summilux M ( 50mm Aspherical Lenses )

I keep making tests with these two lenses, just want to know if I should sell the Voigtlander and get a Summicron 35mm Asph. or go with the Voigtlander 35 f/1.2 Anyway, here are two photographs that I converted to B&W in order to see sharpness in a better way. As far as color goes,…

NEEWER 160 LED CN-160 vs Yongnuo LED Video Light YN300

I’ve had the Neewer CN-160 for about a year and have used it for events, street photography and even product photography. It uses 3 type of batteries.

Easter Weekend with a Leica M Typ 240 and Summilux-M 50mm Asph

I start this post with saying the vertical alignment patch on the viewfinder is off by a bit, it’s a brand new camera though.

Second day with the Leica M Type 240 in Black and White

Second day of testing the Leica M Type 240. I shot in RAW mode then converted to B&W in Lightroom. I also took the M for a little while in a local Carnival and experienced lots of extreme lighting changes that kept fooling the built in meter into overexposing and underexposing by about 2 to 4 stops….
