Wheel to Build Motorcycle Show photoreport

This Sunday I had the chance to cover the Wheel to Build event at Athinais culture space in Athens. The show was co-organized by The Real Intelectuals and Caferacercult.gr.

This show is dedicated to independent motorcycle tuners and builders, mechanics, welders and painters people connected by their common love for two-wheeled creations.  Thus, this was a custom bike show, the first of its kind in Greece, while companies like Yamaha, Suzuki, Triumph, Harley Davidson, Ducati and BMW were also present with their latest models.  There was also a number of exhibitors offering motorcycle accessories.  

A brief motorsport shooting (with comments on mirrorless cameras performance)

A few days ago, I was invited to an event organized by KTM's Greece dealer, where they presented the new generation of Cross and Enduro KTM bikes. At this point, many thanks to my buddy, Nikos Vitsilakis as well as Kostas Kalantzopoulos and the great people of KTM Greece for this opportunity!

I thought of exploiting this experience for testing the performance of a couple of mirrorless cameras , in action shooting. But first a disclaimer.

Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G part 2 - event shooting, further remarks and conclusion

After the first look review on the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4, let's continue with a more specific assessment on its use and results.

This lens category is a favorite with a wide variety of photographers. First off, they are the darling of photojournalists everywhere, enabling them to capture action (reasonably) up-close while giving good reach in case one needs to stay safely away from trouble. Sports shooters also use them quite a bit for indoor activities, and they nicely suited to events such as concerts. Even the f/2.8 variants on a 35mm sensor can't provide ultra shallow DoF for portraits, so they will not be the first choice for portrait shooters. Still, especially in the studio, they are a popular choice, given the focal range provides a complete coverage of "portrait" focal lengths.
