Yellowstone in Winter (part 1)

Yellowstone in Winter (part 1)

This is part 1 of the Yellowstone in Winter post written by Randy Dykstra - you can check his website, Instagram and Facebook page (if this article doesn't make you go there in the winter, I don't know what will):

Everyone knows of Yellowstone National Park and its geysers. Millions of people visit in the summer months. But it was a whole new experience to stay in “yurts” in the middle of the park, in the middle of winter. This was also a time for me to really put my new Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens to task on my Nikon D850.


Winter made this just an amazing adventure, loaded with all sorts of weather; snow storms, winds, bright warm days, and a mixture of all the above. Key this year was finding a place where I could actually stay inside the park and not have to travel 40 miles each morning to reach the central areas of the park. That meant I was able to be at key locations right at sunrise.


The park was loaded with bison and I saw well over a thousand of them, over the 5 days of photography. Also quite abundant were coyotes and eagles as I saw multiples of each every day of the trip. Staying out of sight were the wolves and elk, at least in the middle section of the park. Although, there were some signs of activity that occurred at night.

Leica announced a new CL "100 Jahre Bauhaus" limited edition camera set:

Nikon Z6/Z7 firmware update 2.0 with eye AF officially released


Nikon just released firmware update 2.0 for the Z6 and Z7 camera with eye AF, improve low light focus capability (as previoulsy reported) and other fixes improvements:

Eye-Detection autofocus (AF) for still-image shooting

This enables precise focus on the eye of the intended individual, even when looking through the Electronic Viewfinder. This function is applicable even when the subject's face is partially covered by another object, or in the event when a subject is frequently changing their pose.

The Leica Q2 as a travel camera

The Leica Q2 as a travel camera

The Leica Q2 as a travel camera by Olivier Glod (Website | Flickr | Twitter):

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Scotland with my best friend’s brother and took along the Leica Q2, the Fuji GFX 50R and the DJI Mavic 2 PRO. While a separate blog post about the complete trip will follow later, I thought I would start off with one focusing on the Leica Q2 and how it performed when used as a travel camera.

First things first; why did I take the Q2 along, when I already had the GFX50R with the 32-64mm f/4 in the bag?

Well, you could certainly use the chainsaw you just took down a tree with to also slice and dice some ham, as well as butter your bread, but it wouldn’t be as efficient, nor as enjoyable, as using the appropriate cutlery now, would it?
