Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8 – Review

Hello there everybody,

a few weeks back Zeiss, the very company doing these crazy awesome lenses which costs you boatloads of money but deliver amazing results, contacted us with the question if we would like to try a new, yet to announce product. Since this isn’t really a question you can bet I said yes and a few days later a prototype of the new Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8 arrived at our doorstep. Read on a little review of the lens with some general comments and read about two shoots we did with it.

Los Angeles Making-Of | Sigma 50mm 1.4 ART Review | Sony a6000 XAVC-S test

Hello everyone, 

from the title you can already guess that this post is about to get cramped. 🙂 It is not only our first post to be done in america, since we have been in LA for about a week. It is also a new making-of video from marie’s first shoot, lucky you it is a bikini shoot, but it also features a few words on the 50mm 1.4 ART lens from sigma and since that isn’t enough we also throw in a few words on doing video with the new XAVC-S codec on the a6000.  So head on to the full post to read all about it and see some pictures from the shoot itself. And don’t forget to watch the video at first:

About Skateboards, comfort zones and AF-systems

Hi fellas this is Alex, this time with a short post about my latest shoot in cape town. As you might know Marie and me are currently on stay here to expand our portfolios. For me this means doing more sports and action stuff. So i set up a shoot with James, a skateboarder from a local agency called FanJam. Beside this being the first time ever for me to shoot a skateboarder without knowing a lot about it, it was also the perfect opportunity to test the AF systems of both the A7 and the a6000.

Cape Town – a fashion shoot with the Olympus OMD EM-1 | VIDEO

Hey there fellas! As you might know we are in cape town at the very moment so we got lots of stuff to do. Since I promised some making-of stuff at the very beginning I used Marie’s first shoot with the gorgeous Lisa from Ice Models Capetown featuring the Olympus OMD EM-1, Olympus Germany was kind enough to give her for the trip,  to make a little behind the scenes video. My hands are super shaky as it seems and my grading skills are far away from perfect but this might give you an idea how it looks like when we’re shooting.

Zeiss Touit Lenses on the Sony a6000 – a review

Hello, this is marie. This time it’s on me to serve your evening reading needs. This post is about the zeiss touit lens line-up for mirrorless cameras. Zeiss Germany was kind enough to let me use the 3 currently available lenses on my trip to asia in december 2014. I just bought a a6000 so this came in very handy. Follow the link below to see what i think about them and if they made me miss my D800 and my beloved Nikon 2.8/70-200.

Hello Bangkok!

Hi there folks,

 we’re glad you made it here in the first place and we would like to welcome you on our blog. We will start right away with our first post, we have been spending 4 weeks in asia as our yearly vacation and that involved being in Bangkok for about two weeks which was also the perfect place to test our new Sony a6000 camera.  Since this is a blog mostly about photography, some gear and a few traveltipps of locations and stuff we found worthy to visit and share we will jump head-on into this post.
