Fujifilm TX-1 – The original XPan

I was in Japan at the beginning of may. Fujifilm very successfully launched the GFX100 (read my first-look here) at their big Fujikina event. This was the second time I went to Tokyo, the first time being in October 2018. You might have seen the 5-post-series reportage on this site. If not, then you can…

Stockholm

No new post since February! – I’m such a total slacker. I apologise sincerely to all of you who are following along. I will give you a promise today, that I will not go for 3+ months from this post until the next one. Thats a promise! Life has been good, since my last post….

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…

The Gatlin – Fujinon GF100-200mm f/5.6 first look review

I actually promised myself. I promised myself that I wouldn’t be writing my thoughts on this lens. My life has been very very hectic during the course of the last couple of months, so I don’t really think I have given this lens the amount of attention it deserves for a proper review. And up…

Tokyo – five

This is the last of my five posts in my little Japan-memoirs-series.  Part 1: Tokyo-one Part 2: Tokyo-two Part 3: Tokyo-three-Kyoto Part 4: Tokyo-four After Friday nights extravaganza at the karaoke bar and on the dancefloor, saturday morning was not an easy one to get through. It was also the day where I had to…

Tokyo – four

This is the fourth of five posts in my little Japan-memoirs-series.  Part 1: Tokyo-one Part 2: Tokyo-two Part 3: Tokyo-three-Kyoto Part 5: Tokyo-five Waking up in Tokyo that friday morning, I realised that today I was going to be literally lost in translation. The swedish delegation had gone home earlier that morning, the amazing tourguide…

Tokyo – three – Kyoto

This is the third of five posts in my little Japan-memoirs-series.  Part 1: Tokyo-one Part 2: Tokyo-two Part 4: Tokyo-four Part 5: Tokyo-five Part three of this series isn’t really so much about Tokyo as it is about its anagram city Kyoto. For day three we had an arranged trip to the city of Kyoto….

Tokyo – two

This is the second of five posts in my little Japan-memoirs-series.  Part 1: Tokyo-one Part 3: Tokyo-three-Kyoto Part 4: Tokyo-four Part 5: Tokyo-five You know that feeling when you wake up, and you briefly think that you’re at home in your own bed needing to get up and get ready for work, but then you…

Tokyo – one

This is the first of five posts in my little Japan-memoirs-series.  Part 2: Tokyo-two Part 3: Tokyo-three-Kyoto Part 4: Tokyo-four Part 5: Tokyo-five It’s been 10 days. 10 days since I returned home from what has been a big mark on my bucket list for quite some years now. Ever since I started getting involved…

When the floor dust settles

So, the show is indeed over. Photokina 2018 has come to an end. Or actually it ended three days ago. But who’s counting anyway. For those of you who haven’t ever been to a spectacle such as Photokina, I really can not begin to describe what kind of a marketing show it is. And yet…
