About rainbow

On my blog 'Radozhiva' I try to write objectively about photographic equipment и photography techniques. All Articles I write in my free time, the rest of the time I work photographer , where I get practical experience in photography. I try to write specifically for photographers, not for potential buyers in any online store. I do not deal with pixel-by-pixel battles-comparisons of photographic equipment, I am not interested. There are no synthetic tests of equipment on Radozhiv - you should not clog your head with synthetics. In the reviews you can find the maximum honest information on photographic equipment and my personal impressions.

Everything written here is based only on my personal interest in photography and on my own experience. No review on the Radozhiv website is paid or 'paid', although I have been offered a fee for a sugary review many times.

Also, I will gladly post your review (user review), but only if it is interesting enough, just contact me to mine Contacts.

If you find a mistake or 'confusion', just let us know in the comments and I will try to correct the inaccuracy. I write in my free time, sometimes I don't have much free time.

The site used to be at in the summer of 2016 he moved to the international top-level domain Therefore, many photos on the site are signed with the old site address '© Radojuva.Com.Ua'. All examples of photos on the site were taken by me personallyif the author of the photo is not me - this must be indicated.

Answers to readers' questions

Recently, there have been a lot of questions on the Radozhiv website, I physically cannot answer all the questions. If you saw a question on the site without an answer, and know how to solve it, do not hesitate, answer people who left a request for help. If you cannot find a suitable topic for your question, add it to the section Q & A. Please note that for some questions I do not know the answers, or the answer requires 10 pages of text. When asking questions, try to formulate them correctly and in a detailed manner, honestly, neither I nor other readers of Radozhiva have telepathy and they cannot understand (and even less answer) short short meaningful questions.

Consultations and training

Detailed information on this subject is described. here.

Photographic equipment for reviews

If you have interesting lenses, manual or modern autofocus, I will be glad to write a review about them. For reviews I use Canon, Nikon, Sony systems. There are adapters for most popular systems. It usually takes a couple of days. The easiest way is to send me the equipment using New Mail. I pay the shipment.

Details: New Mail, Vyshhorod city, warehouse of mail No. 3 (Taras Shevchenko ave., 2d), Arkady Shapoval, (063) 527-03-33. I often use the services of New Mail and it has never failed.
