Fujifilm GFX 50S review

he mirrorless cameras have taken the consumer markets by storm as seen in the past few years. The smaller consumer markets are slowly moving towards mirrorless cameras as they are smaller in size, easy to use, have good lens line-ups and portability as the main factor. People are simply paying extra money to get the features which are still available with DSLR's but the size and the usability is giving the DSLR's a good run for their money. This has led to most manufacturers to develop new technologies especially in the mirrorless segments. This led to the development of many full-frame mirrorless cameras that have created waves among videographers and photographers alike. This is the current situation when it comes to APS-C and Full-frame sensor cameras. Photography was never limited to the size of the medium. For instance large format photography which was the heart and soul for many photographers, especially who shoot landscape photos will swear by the quality of a 8x10 or a 4x5 negative. The amount of details these film formats hold is unprecedented. The immediate gap between the large and 35mm formats is the medium format. The medium format is by far the most common and most used format by many photographers worldwide. The medium format is bigger than the 35mm but still smaller than the large formats in size. The medium format is still a very sought after both in digital and film formats. For most people medium format is limited to buying medium format analogue cameras like a TLR or a 6X7 format camera and shooting in film which makes the process simpler and less expensive. The results however are better than 35mm digital formats and the quality is outright.

Oneplus 6 Review

We see new smartphones everyday, and almost every month, throughout the year, we witness the launch of a new one. One thing however is not changing, the hunger for developement of new technology. Smartphones have evolved most in the last few years. From dissapearing input jacks to screens getting bigger and better (and now with notches and much more). This sure is a good time for the smart phone manufacturers to come out and project new ideas and technology, which will bridge the gap between them and the average consumers, who wish to have more and do more with a smartphone.

Now the rains also bring in a lot of water and all water bodies get stored with the maximum limits. Similarly, rivers, canals and waterfalls look even more beautiful when full of water.

In this article, we will discuss why a cloudy day is better, and talk about how one can still shoot great portraits in the sun.
