Powerful Compactful – The Fujifilm X-T30 Review

Third time’s a charm, right? Not that the X-T10 and X-T20 weren’t little charmers in their own right, but if the recent success and reviewer praises of the XT3 are anything to come by, then the third iteration of the X-TX0 is indeed bound to be the charm. And indeed it is! The X-TX0 series…

Fujifilm X-T100 Review – Quality on a budget

Here we go again. These Fujifilm camera first look reviews has become quite the theme for me, apparently. I do wish that I would get more time to update the blog with other stuff than Fujifilm releasing a new camera, but it’s just the way my life is at the moment. I’m shooting more and…

Fujifilm X-E3 Review – The liberator

It’s been a long time coming. The third iteration of Fujifilms X-E line of X-series camera.

Catching up

As I wrote in my last blogpost here, I have been insanely busy since, well, since march 2016. Since the launch of the X100F, GFX, XT20 et al, things have been nice and cozy. That also means time for retrospective editing, and publishing. So I thought I would just make a small post about that.…
