So I bought a Pentax

So I bought a Pentax. A 6×7. A beast of a camera. The mirror slap alone can knock over a semi-large cow if the wind is right. The quality of the images from this camera is beyond belief. It’s film and glas. It’s marvellous. I will write an in depth about it at some point,…

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…

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…

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…

X-Pro2 – Vintage’d

Since joining the Fujifilm mirrorless eco-system, one of the things I’ve enjoyed most is using vintage manual focus lenses on the system.

The Canon 50mm f/1.4 LTM review

Ever since investing some of my hard earned money in some Leica gear, I of course started researching good lenses for the system. Knowing that native Leica lenses are sublime, they are also wickedly expensive, so I tried to widen my horizon and look beyond the german wonders. One name kept popping up when researching fast…

Ze Razor – A Leica Summicron-M 90mm f/2 review

Them Germans! They sure know how to craft some decent quality glass. And by decent I mean “holy sh** this glass is nice!” As I’m sure most of you know this german quality of craft from the hands of Leica doesn’t exactly come cheap, but every once in a while you luck out, and something presents…

X-vinTage1: My Fujifilm X-T1 review part two

Check out part one of the review here Using vintage glass is something that I really enjoy. Given the contents of this blog, it might not come as a huge surprise to some of you. I started shooting vintage glass on the X-Pro1 a couple of years ago when I got a cheap Fujinon 50mm…

Helios Turborized! – The Helios 44m-4 w/ Mitakon Lens Turbo Review

So this should be a fun one! I recently picked up a cheap M42 to MD mount ring adapter. I didn’t know that this was possible, so image my pleasant surprise when I found out that I could use my Mitakon Lens Turbo MD mount with my Takumars in M42 mount! I did a small…

Spring in my garden. Macro with the X-Pro1

I tried some macro photography in my garden. I used the Minolta Rokkor MC 55mm f/1.7 with  50mm and 36mm extension tubes. This worked rather well. Not my usual style of photography, but fun none the less. 🙂
