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…

Compact Impact – The Fujinon XF16mm f2.8 review

As noted on the roadmap back in summer of 2018 Fujifilm was going to be launching a new small 16mm lens for the X-series system by start 2019. And here we are. Start 2019 has come – and indeed Fujifilm delivered on their promise and today announced the XF16mm f/2.8 R WR. The XF16mm f/2,8…

Mitakon 65mm f/1.4 for GFX review

So here we are yet again. It doesn’t seem like a long time ago that I reviewed the Mitakon 35mm f0.95 mk2. But then again it is. It is also a long time ago that we first saw the initial prototype presented of the 65 mm F/ 1.4. The first time we side presented was…

Croatia

We spent our summer vacation in sunny Croatia. I had heard from friends and acquaintances that it was a gorgeous place to visit. So we decided that this year we would head that way this summer. So we did. We drove 2000 km from Århus, Denmark to Biograd, Croatia near Zadar and Split. The kids…

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…

Mudslide

I’m way behind on blogging. I know this. Recently it has been all about the reviews. They take a lot of time for me to write, so the personal blogging stuff gets pushed aside a bit. Today we spent some time with some dear friends, and we decided to go to a small farm-sale. Complete…

Techart Pro EF to GFX smart adapter

So, I thought I was done with all the gear talk after the X-E3, XF80mm and GF45mm articles last week. But I have been testing a very exciting product for about a month and a half. It’s the Techart Pro Canon EF – GFX smart adapter. One of my absolute favourite things to do with…

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. Built in a rangefinder “brick” styling, but without the OVF of the X-Pro line, the X-E3 is to its bigger brother X-Pro2, what the X-T20 is to the X-T2. As always, the wishlist for features in a new fujifilm…

Fujifilm XF 80mm f/2.8 macro review – Closer to completion

Sometimes you just experience something that exceeds all your expectations in every possible aspect. The new Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM WR OIS Macro is exactly one of those experiences. I still can’t believe just how good and versatile this lens is. This is so much more than just a lens for shooting macro….

Fujifilm GF 45mm f/2.8 review – Medium format reportage

Announced almost a year ago at Photokina 2016 the Fujinon GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR completes the “second wave” triplet of GF lenses (together with the GF110mm and GF23mm) for the medium format GFX system. In total there’s now 6 lenses available for the system. The GF45mm f/2.8 is equivalent to the 35mm FOV in…

Minolta X Fujifilm

It was almost like a revelation. Like something that I really didn’t think could ever be possible. I first got a whiff of what was coming on a facebook forum committed to all things Fujifilm GFX. There were a lot of first movers from Hong Kong that had access to fast luxury glass, and prototype…
