Hasselblad H4D vs 500CM vs Leica M Sample Images Compared by ErickPHOTO

Hasselblad H4D: This Swedish camera was introduced in 2009 but the 50 digital back was released in 2010 for €19,995. This camera introduced a yaw sensor that compensates when you focus on the face and recompose, sending information to the lens to refocus based on that calculation in order to keep your point of focus…

Metz M400 Review with the Leica system by ErickPHOTO

I purchased this medium-compact flash unit M400 to review it after looking at the Leica SF40, SF60 (Nissin i40 and i60) as well as the MK320 and Godox TT350.

Nikon D3s vs D800 vs GX85

So…  Why older tech? Because right now, you can purchase a D3s for around $1400 USD. It has 9 FPS with constant AF. What other 35mm Full Frame can be purchased at this time for that price? Fuji XT2 is fast, but the lag on the EVF is cumbersome when doing high speed action. You…
