New Photo Sheet


Ambitious landscape photographers use a wide range of techniques to create very specific images, such as neutral density filters and graduated ND’s or hyperfocal distance and panoramic photography.

New Nikon LC-1424

Which owner of a Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED doesn’t know it? When using a Lee SW-150 or Haida 150mm Series filter holder on this great lens, can no longer put the lens cap LC 1424 completely on the lens. I have found a simple and inexpensive solution for this problem. In this blog post I’ll present the details.
