Capture One 20 is Positively Kickass

Capture One 20 from Phase One launched today. Contrary to popular belief this is the latest update to Capture One. Many are asking what happened to updates 13-19, since the last version of Capture One was 12? Phase One has stated that with a new decade launching in January, they have decided to

Switching from Leica to Sony by Jay Goodrich

Switching from Leica to Sony

It probably doesn’t come as that big of a surprise to you that I am writing about switching from Leica to Sony does it? I have never had a dislike for Sony cameras and lenses. I just had some issues with a few specifications that I felt needed refinement. My first experience with

Panasonic S1 with 24-105mm Lens

The new Panasonic S1 and S1R cameras mark a historical moment not only for Panasonic, but for the camera industry as a whole. Both the S1 and S1R cameras are the first full-frame mirrorless bodies from Panasonic. AND. AND this is a BIG AND, they share the “L” lens mount with Leica and

Lightroom Import Tips

You are probably thinking that an article on Lightroom import tips is futile at this point. Come on Jay, it’s pretty simple, insert card or connect camera and press enter. Done. You wouldn’t be wrong thinking that way, but what if there were more options available to you? What if this article was

Leica Q Field Test by Jay Goodrich

Leica Q Field Test

I can honestly say that I refrained from this Leica Q field test for a long time. It was almost a year ago that a reader suggested testing the Leica Q. Basically, I didn’t get the camera. I continuously thought – who in the world would want a $4500 camera with fixed 28mm
