Hello all and welcome back! We’ve had some issues since our relaunch this past April, and I wanted to take a quick moment to run through what’s been going on, as well as let you know what’s coming. Continue reading “Update 5/25/2018”
A common topic of conversation between the three of us here at Field Photographer is that of the perfect boot. Not just the perfect pair of boots, but does such a thing even exist? And let’s say for just a moment that it does, what would it consist of? Countless hours have been spent between the 3 of us here on just this subject. Continue reading “The Quest for the Perfect Boot”
You may or may not have noticed, but we’ve been taking a little vacation during these past few months. During this time we’ve been reworking the site, gearing up, partnering with brands and… Moving to Mexico? Continue reading “Welcome Back to Field Photographer”
This April, adventure returns. With dozens of new brands, a podcast, youtube channel, expeditions, and giveaways like never before.
Get ready. April 15th 2018 it all begins. FP
Since we launched just a few months ago, the reception from you the reader has been rather amazing. What was intended as a soft launch to get the site ready for an official launch in 2018, brought in thousands of readers and the response from you has been fantastic.
To prepare for bigger things and get ready for the new year we’ll be taking a short break for the month of November and be back early December. As always thanks for your continued support and patronage. We’ll see you right back here Monday, December 11th! FP
I’ve been looking for a great trail knife for the Jeep for years, and I may have just found what I was searching for. I’ve previously used a classic KA-BAR but it was stolen awhile back so I’ve been open to new styles for the replacement.
After some searching, I decided to go back to KA-BAR and see they had in various styles. I’d heard the Becker had some great designs so I decided to check out their Combat Bowie. A full tang, lightweight, built like a tank, classic bowie shape that is surprisingly reasonably priced. Continue reading “The KA-BAR BK-9”
Photographer Cole Barash’s recent collaboration with the brand Filson takes us to a side of forestry firefighting we rarely see, in a year plagued by major fires across the states, from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Pacific Northwest. From intimate portraits to striking images of these brave men and women at work protecting the forest, the scale of these fires is felt in each image from Barash.

In the mirrorless camera world smaller, lighter and packed with buttons is the trend. But with their pro end mirrorless camera, the SL, Leica decided to provide fewer buttons and go bigger and heavier than any other mirrorless camera in the 35mm format on the market. Milled from a solid block of aluminum, featuring as few buttons as possible with no labeling on any of them and an awkward power switch, the Leica SL seems to kick to the curb any feature commonplace or desired in a mirrorless system, with one exception. The EVF. DSLR users flock to Sony or Fuji for a smaller lighter system that is packed with features but doesn’t force them to make huge compromises in quality.
Some users regret the move and some users are quite happy, but one thing they all agree on is lighter is better and they love the EVF. I even made the jump from DSLR to mirrorless in part to cut weight. So why do I now find myself using the absolute heaviest mirrorless 35mm format option out there? Because of the EVF.
More on that in a moment, lets first take a broader look at the Leica SL…
When news broke sometime ago that the majority shareholder of Impossible Project was also now the majority shareholder of Polaroid, rumors exploded. Our prediction? That the Impossible was indeed possible, Impossible Project was Polaroid. Not the pale version of the brand we’d come to know in recent years, but a rebirth of the instant film legend. Continue reading “The Impossible made Possible? Impossible Project now redirects to new Polaroid Originals site, and the Polaroid One Step 2”
A staple of mine is the Filson Feather cloth shirt, I could live in this shirt. When the epaulets version was on closeout awhile back, even though they didn’t have my size left in stock, I ordered 4-5 of each color. Although the version with epaulets is sadly still not available, Filson has given us new colors and plaids, as well as the standard short sleeves version. As always Filson backs their wear with their lifetime warranty.
We’ll have a full review of the Feather Cloth Shirt coming up shortly, as our order of the new one should arrive this week. LINK FP
