One Year on Mt. Wendelstein by Christian Obermeier

Astronomy and infrared go hand in hand. I am an astrophysicist who is working at the Wendelstein observatory in the Bavarian alps, where I am in charge of our multi-band camera 3KK which can see simultaneously in the optical and infrared. This, of course, inspires my photography and vice versa. Being an observer throughout the […]

California Foothills by David Nilsen

The foothills are a beautiful part of California that is often overlooked. In the past several months I’ve gone hiking in the foothills quite a bit and saw a transformation from a sea of yellow and dried out grasses to lush green rolling hills. But, infrared photography turns them into something completely different.

The Nikon Z6 Disassembly and Teardown

Nearly two months ago, we dove into the Nikon Z7 and showed you what was happing inside all the way down to the sensor. Today, we did the same with the Z7’s standard resolution counterpart, the Nikon Z6. At 25 megapixels and just under $2000 MSRP, the Z6 is encroaching on the Sony A7 III’s […]

The Fujifilm X-T3 Infrared Photography Review

The Fujifilm X-T3 that we tore down last week is now a fully capable, full-spectrum camera. As we did with the Nikon Z7 and EOS R, we’ll be putting the X-T3 through our full set of infrared photography tests. We’ll test the X-T3 for user-friendliness with respect to IR photography, infrared color performance, sensor artifacts, light leaks, […]

The Fujifilm X-T3 Disassembly and Teardown

You might have thought the Fujifilm X-T series was finished with the release of the X-H1, that Fujifilm was digging into the competition and leaving their love of style behind as was evident with that monstrosity. (We mean that lovingly.) But, the X-T3 is here, and it’s as beautiful as ever. Not only that, but […]

Just like our last infrared photography review of the Nikon Z7, we’ll be testing for user-friendliness with respect to IR photography, infrared color performance, sensor artifacts, light leaks, hot spots, […]
