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…

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…

Icelandic inclusion – The Fujinon GF 23mm f/4 Review

In the year 2017 four Danish friends set out to revisit the cradle of the nordics. The land of the Norse mythology. The Epic land of Thor, land of Odin…. land of extremely complicated names like Eyjafjallajökull! They had been on the trip before. They had already experienced what Iceland had to offer. What majestic landscapes that…

The Separator – The Fujinon GF 110mm f/2 review

For many Fujifilm GFX owners and future buyers, the Fujinon GF110mm f/2 must be one of those lenses that you must own at some point. Just like the Takumar 105mm f/2.4 for the Pentax 6×7 or the Hasselblad HC100mm f/2.2 for the Hasselblad H-system, the GF110mmf/2 seems to be one of those lenses that is…

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 Fujifilm GFX 50S Review – Portable Beast

There had been speculations for many months. Heck, even years prior to the reveal back at Photokina in 2016, there had been ramblings about a mirrorless medium format system from Fujifilm. Hasselblad took the early bird and introduced their iteration of a mirrorless medium format during summer of 2016. During the past 5 months I…

Graphite Brigade

The two top cameras in the Fujifilm X-series line just got a nice new paint job! This also marks the first “silver” X-Pro camera. Not really silver though. More like a really dark titanium/steel/graphite kind of color. What Fujifilm apparently did was add some more black to the very top coating of the camera making it…

23 and 2 – A small look at the Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 WR

One of my favourite songs is  “Forty Six and 2” by Tool. – Divide 46 by 2 and you get? Yeah. You get it. – I have been waiting for this lens for so so long. As in a really long time. It’s no secret that my go-to camera as of late is the X-Pro2. But…

Parading Bull – The Fujifilm X-T2 Review

On January 15th 2016, Fujifilm launched the X-Pro2 as the long awaited successor to the X-Pro1. It was everything I had been waiting for, and so much more. As I wrote in my review back then, the X-Pro2 feels like a huge upgrade from the X-Pro1, but merely an evolution from the X-T1. Until the…

Never in my time as a photographer have I encountered the amount of anticipation and general hype surrounding a camera release as is the case with the Fujifilm X-Pro2. We, the Fujifilm users, have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting. But as of today. No more. It’s finally here. So almost 4 years on from the original…
