Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 Woven Silk Cord Camera Strap Review | Patrick Leong

Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 Woven Silk Cord Camera Strap Review | Patrick Leong | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Nowadays, camera straps are a big thing in the camera world.  And why wouldn’t they be?  The world today is about personalization.  Everything we buy can be customized to our satisfaction.  Some car companies now will even paint your car any color that you would like (for a small fee, of course  ).  We now have more camera strap companies than ever before, and that is not a bad thing.  Some may say it’s a waste to “bling” your camera out but hey, it’s YOUR camera, and you can add whatever you want to it.  I remember when I first received my M3, I wanted a leather strap so badly for it.  I wanted that old school look to really resonate from my camera.  I was 12 then, and at that time, they didn’t really have any third party camera strap companies.  Now, they do, and one company that has earn the respect of many photographers is Artisan & Artist.  I spoke of Artisan & Artist straps before in my ACAm-280 Kobe Strap review, and today, I will be showing you the Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 silk cord.

Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 Woven Silk Cord Build Quality:

One of the reasons for why Artisan & Artist can command such high prices on their straps is because you really get a quality built product.  The Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 woven silk cord is no exception to this rule.  You’re first greeted with a plain, and simple black box.  When you finally take your strap out, you know you bought a quality product because you can see all of the intricate detail, and craftsmanship that goes into making this wonderful strap.  The photos of this silk cord do not do it justice; the silk cord looks absolutely awesome in person.  Seriously, this is a really nice strap…in my opinion,  a better strap than the leather ones that Artisan & Artist makes......

Sensor Crop Factors and Equivalence | Nasim Mansurov

Sensor Crop Factors and Equivalence | Nasim Mansurov | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

The subject of sensor crop factors and equivalence has become rather controversial between photographers, sparking heated debates on photography sites and forums. So much has been posted on this topic, that it almost feels redundant to write about it again. Sadly, with all the great and not-so-great information out there on equivalence, many photographers are only left more puzzled and confused. Thanks to so many different formats available today, including 1″/CX, Micro Four Thirds, APS-C, 35mm/Full Frame, Medium Format (in different sizes), photographers are comparing these systems by calculating their equivalent focal lengths, apertures, depth of field, camera to subject distances, hyperfocal distances and other technical jargon, to prove the inferiority or the superiority of one system over another. In this article, I want to bring up some of these points and express my subjective opinion on the matter. Recognizing that this topic is one of the never-ending debates with strong arguments from all sides, I do realize that some of our readers may disagree with my statements and arguments. So if you do disagree with what I say, please provide your opinion in a civilized manner in the comments section below. Before we get started, let’s first go over some of the history of sensor formats to get a better understanding of the past events and to be able to digest the material that will follow more easily......
