Tele-Zoom Macro
As Robert Capa once said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough” and a great way to get close up photos is to take advantage of the close focusing capabilities of modern tele-zoom lenses especially where getting physically close to the subject is a challenge like snapping plants that are further back a in flower bed for example.

Hate It?
There are a shedload of vehement micro four thirds haters out there who would like nothing more than to see the format die, but there is one excellent MFT camera that even the supporters of the format love to hate. They should know better!

Boon Companion
These days when you find me out and about, more likely than not, the camera you will find me carrying is my Sony RX100 VI compact.

Ah I have three, all the same model but each one of which I keep loaded with different combinations of gear for different purposes at different times. The third one I acquired brand new recently even though they have been out of production for many years.

Set Up & Grab
Set up my newly arrived OM System OM-1 II, stuck my M.Zuiko 8-25mm f4 Pro on the front and nipped out to grab a couple of snaps before the light faded completely late on a very dull and miserable February day in Winter. Camera and lens performed well considering the rubbish and uninspiring lighting conditions.

Café Society
These days we live in a café society and most of us would't get by without our regular coffee fix whatever its form, cappuccino, latte, Frappuccino, macchiato, Americano or whatever...
