På dagstur i Köpenhamn med Olympus Pen-F och 12mm 2,0

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

För ett par veckor sedan fick vi möjlighet att tillsammans med ett par vänner ta en dagstur till Köpenhamn. Då huvudsyftet med resan var att äta och dricka gott på några av Köpenhamns många smörrebröds krogar så blev prioriteringen att resa så lätt som möjligt avseende kamerautrustning. Valet föll därför på min Olympus Pen-F med tillhörande 12 mm. Vikten hamnar på ca 500 gram och trots att kameran är liten så gör det.. Read More

Reflections on a pair of portrait-lenses

Tyrolen 2016-08-04 Olle Johansson-Nyhlén

Even today I can feel the excitement and joy that I experienced in late 1980:s unboxing my newly purchased Pentax A* 85 mm 1,4. A dream had come true. After a long period of saving I had finally been able to buy my dream lens. The box was unpacked and soon I had a little more than half a kilo of steel and glass in my hand. It was almost enough to feel the.. Read More

Nikon D5 vs Leica M240 in almost no light

Nikon D5 modified raw, 24 mm 1,4 1/8 f/1,4

Leica has been the low light champion until this millennium. The Leicas, from M3 to M6 has been superior when it comes to take pictures of non moving objects. The lenses are in many cases superior and the focusing are more precise. Specially with wide-angle high speed lenses with apertures like 1,4 or 2,0. Leitz had already the tremendous lens Noctilux 1,0 when the Summilux 35 mm 1,4 dual aspherical was presented as well..

Nikon D5, Tamron 150-600 and World RX Sweden

Nikon D5, 1/800 sek f/10, Tamron 150-600  at 600 mm

I do a lot of articles about different vehicles. It can be a huge lorry, an ATV or a racecar. A month ago it was rallycross, world championship in a remote place in western Sweden very close to the Norwegian border. I carried a Nikon D5 with Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2,8G ED VR and a Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6,3 Di VC USD. Both lenses performed very well with the new pro-Nikon. Fast an accurate focusing on very.. Read More

From Leica M4 to Olympos OM-D E-1

wSN Olympus Leica

There are moments in every photographers life that´s more important or more thrilling than others. I remember the day I´ve got my first Leica. It was a M4 with Summicron lenses, 35 mm and 90 mm. For you who´s used to the Leica nomenclature this of course means 2,0 as maximum aperture. The 90 mm was a huge piece of glass made in Canada. They where both of them really good lenses. Better..

Challenging dog photography

wSN Sandeman 5 160721

I really like to make a picture where you can se the object moving. It might be a car, a dog a runner or a train. This nice summer evening it just happened to be two dogs. Nikon D5, Nikkor 2,8 70-200 mm, the last but one version. 1/200 seconds, 2,8, quite late in the dusk of a swedish summerday. Later the two dogs started to chase a pack of wild boars. No.. Read More

This is some pictures taken for the swedish Trailer-magacine. It´s about a complicated transport of some parts from a harbor to a power plant in south Sweden. For me it was important to balance the working lights in the harbor and the lights on the trucks with the.. Read More

Classic documentary photography with mix of classic and modern equipment

SN Berlin Janowitzbrücke

Janowitzbrücke U-bahn i Berlin Data: Leica M med Super Angulon 3,4 21 mm, 1/6 sek;   f/4,0;   ISO 250 Photographer: Stefan Nilsson Comments: Finally a full frame Leica M that´s useful in low light conditions. Like the original Leica M:s. Alright, this picture could have been taken with a M9, low ISO, but I felt crippled when using the M9 in higher ISO. The combination with this very old Super Angulon was not.. Read More
