Peak Design Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod Review

Peak Design Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod Review:

Deciding on which travel tripod fits you, and your travels best can be a difficult decision because there are tons of great ones on the market these days.  With the release of the Peak Design Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod the decision has not been made any easier.  The travel tripod by Peak Design is something that has definitely intrigued me for a while now because quite frankly, it’s pretty innovative.  In some ways, one could argue it’s a new way of looking at how a tripod can be made.  I had the opportunity to test it out, and here’s what I think of it.

Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Review Leica L Mount

Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Review Leica L Mount:

The 35mm lens is one of the most popular focal lengths with good reason.  It’s great for many types of photography from street work, landscape to environmental portraiture.  I have to admit, the 35mm isn’t my favorite focal length but I can not deny its extreme versatility.  With all that said, I had the opportunity to review the Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG HSM Art lens for the Leica L Mount.  Here’s what I thought of it.

Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Leica L Mount First Impressions

Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Leica L Mount First Impressions:

If you’re looking for a 35mm lens for your L mount camera, there are a lot of ways that you can go. For one, you can get an M mount adapter, and attach M lenses.  As all of you know, there are tons of M mount 35mm lenses to choose from although personally, I don’t like this route as much because I want autofocus.  So, you can go the autofocus route, and buy the APO-Summicron-SL 35mm f2 ASPH, which is superb but also expensive.  Are there any other options?  Well, how about Sigma?  You can get one of my favorite L mount 35mm lenses, the 35mm f1.2, which I reviewed a while back (review here) but if that’s just too large and heavy, then the 35mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens might just be the lens for you.  It’s also a stop faster than the Summicron.  I recently received a copy for review purposes, and here are my first impressions of it.

Weekly Portrait Post: Sunset Shoot With Tiffany and The Leica SL

Weekly Portrait Post: Sunset Shoot With Tiffany and The Leica SL:

I’ve actually been doing a lot of shoots lately but not much editing.  I just haven’t been in the mood to sit down, and get down to the edits but I have been looking back at some of my older photos that I have not posted yet, and found this set from my Leica SL days.  These are shots of Tiffany (her Instagram), and they were taken right around sunset.
