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…

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…

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…

“A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.” I’ve always admired this quote by the late Apple founder Steve Jobs. He was a true visionary, and left a huge mark on the world and how we live in it today. The camera that Fujifilm announced today is…

Fujifilm X-T3 Review – Next generation X

In the midst of more camera companies stepping up and entering the mirrorless camera market with full frame cameras galore, Fujifilm is launching its next generation APS-C.

Moving in close – A look at the Fujifilm MCEX-18G and MCEX-45G

So this post is more like a supplement to the GF250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR review than an actual review, cause let’s face it – it’s a bit silly to do reviews of macro-tubes, right? (yes, I know I have done one in the past. Now shush! 😛 ) None the less I got…

All photography in this article including product shots was shot by me on Fujifilm gear. A week ago, a package landed on my doorstep.
