Seeking for Round Filters?

Round filters are currently enjoying great popularity again. They are a compact and lightweight alternative to square filter systems and literally fit into any pocket. So if you want to travel with light photo equipment only, you should consider purchasing round filters. I myself look back on a long time with screw filters, which I have already liked to use at analog times. At that time I mainly carried UV and pole filters with me in my photo bag. A […]

The Perfect Umbrella

Which landscape photographer has never thought before about protecting his equipment with an umbrella for photographers? A few years ago I developed a small project from these thoughts, which I finally put into practice. I was thrilled (and still am) with the result, but was often looked incredulous at because of this umbrella. When it rained, however, it was me who smiled back and continued taking photos while the others had to pack up their equipment. Long exposures in particular […]

Kase K9 Filter Holder

At the end of september, the long-awaited market launch of the Kase K100-K9 filter holder took place in Germany. After photographing with different Kase filter holders for years, I was of course very curious about this release. Although I knew some key data before and had the occasion to make some suggestions for improvement to Kase, in the end it is always different to feel a finished product in one’s hands. Last week I finally got the new holder and […]

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. All these techniques require precise preparation and extensive experience in order to avoid mistakes and possibly missing the best light of the day. Many of us love to use neutral density filters and we know that the nominal density factor often deviates from the actual one. In order to attain the biggest […]

Spikes for the Tripod

For a landscape photographer that often stays off the comfort zone, it’s important to optimize not only the clothes but also the gear for the area. Today, I show you, how to prepare the tripod for the use on icy or eroded undergrounds. The most ordinary tripods on the market have bolted rubber feet. Some manufacturers offer spikes already in the basic version, hidden in the retractable rubber feet. The manufacturer of my tripod provides spikes for replacement. Although the […]

Tripod on f-stop

As many other outdoor photographers in the world, I carry my extensive gear in a photo backpack around the world. For my part I own a f-stop Tilopa of the newest generation and am very happy with it. It feels quite comfortable, even on longer walks and my tripod can be securely fastened on its left side. That’s well, but this post is not about the backpack. After reaching the location, I look around and take off my backpack and […]

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. In summer 2011, when I took my newly acquired Lee SW-150 filter holder on a trip to Japan, I still used the […]
