Tamron 18-400mm VC HLD Review

One of the primary strengths of interchangeable lens camera systems like DSLRs is that you can, well, change lenses. This allows you to customize the lens to the job at hand and get the best results. But what about the people who don’t really want to change lenses? Those frustrated […]

One of the most daunting things to do as a photographer is to travel with your expensive gear. There have been moments that I carried a bag of gear worth more than the car that dropped me off at the airport! That’s a pretty serious stress point as you navigate […]
