Being a photojournalist is a tough gig, especially when you’re working with less than reliable gear. Roman Yarovitcyn spent the 1990’s working as a newspaper photographer in Russia and shooting primarily on cheap and quirky Zenit-E cameras. Despite the shortcomings of his gear, the B&W images he created during this era are nothing short of mesmerizing.
These images are made even cooler by the fact that Roman is still a working photojournalist in Russia. Click the link below for his insights, and to read more about his experiences and view a much larger selection of his images. Oh, and if you liked what you see/read, grab a copy of his photobook, Edge of Centuries.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 IV is an entry-level mirrorless camera that’s feature-packed, and will appeal to beginners as well as more experienced users. Read about the ins and outs of this image-stabilized, low-priced camera here.
The Panasonic Lumix DC-G100 (G110 in some regions) is a mirrorless camera designed for vlogging. Its 20MP Four Thirds sensor is paired with clever tracking audio technology, but we have our reservations.
The GFX 100S fits most of the capabilities of the GFX 100 into a smaller and more affordable body. We’ve tested what the camera offers to see who it might make sense for.
