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 […]

Summer Solstice

My fellow photography brethren over at the KAGE Collective did a publication last year. It was about documenting a particular day cross-worldly. They chose the summer and winter solstices. To celebrate my joining of the collective, I decided I would have a go at it myself. These images will not see a KAGE publication, but they are […]

Delibrate candour

I seem to be on a blogging spree these past couple of weeks. I really don’t know why, but mainly I think it’s because I’m in a good place. A happy place. It has been brought to my attention quite often that people like to read these blogposts that include a little bit of personal […]

Life and the lens

It’s the same thing every year. Around this time I take a look at the blog and go – “Why have I not written any posts lately!?” – And the answer is just about the same as always. I. Have. Been. Insanely. Busy. With. Life. As is getting customary on this plain little writing-field of […]

Repetition and progress

It’s that time of the year again. The annual gymnastics recital in our small town. Its a big thing in our family. Mainly because of the involvement of my better half. She does an amazing job. I’ve become quite fond of these annual meetups at the sportscenter. Seeing the girls evolve within a physical framework […]

Mitakon 35mm f0.95 mk2 review

A few months back I decided that I wanted to pull the trigger on the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 mk2 for the Fujifilm system. I had read good things about the lens and seen some great sample images, so I thought to myself “why not!?” – So I ordered the lens from the official Zhongyi website […]

The conundrum of my photographic identity

It’s very upbeat and in-time to write about your personal issues correlated to your art form. I’ve read so many of these posts from various artists that I get quite suspicious as to the reasoning behind said posts. I always suspected alterior, sales-oriented motifs. That is until I started writing them myself. I could suddenly […]
