We’re on Kit.com! An easy way to browse recommended gear

A big part of photography is what gear to use. There’s so much stuff out there it can be difficult to know where to start.

After trying out kit.com I was really impressed how easy it is to put together a gear guide.

You can click here to see some of the guides I’ve set up so far.

7 Things You Need To Know About Electronic Viewfinders (EVFs) Back to Basics

What is an Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)?

A viewfinder is a part of the camera that you look through in order to frame your photo. Most DSLR cameras have what are known as optical viewfinders.
