    Rockin a Fanny

    Waist pack and hip pack are two of the less awkward names, and work whether you carry it at the front or rear. Millican has two expensive but nice waist packs. On the cheap, there are some running waist packs that cinch down nicely whwn you dont neer volume. Some of them have external bottle...

    “Intrusive” Street Photography.

    I love the somewhat abstract and highly graphical street photography of Saul Leiter. It shows people going about their daily lives, it is visually appealing, and it is usually not intrusive. He often used longer focal lengths, but used them not for being sneaky, but for singling out the fleeting...

    Fuji Four X mount lenses coming

    35/1.4 with WR and focus update would be fantastic Are you sure that 4 lenses will be X mount? Or also GFX?

    Fuji The great X100V discussion thread (formerly "specs leaked")

    I never saw the need fornanlens upgrade outside of wide open / up close situations. At medium and far focus distance and at f/4, my original X100 delivers incredibly sharp results even into the corners, and I am certain the lens would still be incredible on a 26mp sensor. Anyone complaining...

    Film If you could only have one (film) camera for the rest of your life?

    Xpan, for sure. If I could choose only one lens it'd be the 90mm for its cinematic effect. One option not listed here is a Nikonos (5). If I can only have one camera, it might as well be one that can be used in virtually all circumstances.

    Whitewall sample pack - acrylic, HD metal, alu print, some papers

    Happy to hear it! Hope you get some great prints out of it! I ended up getting a photoprint behind matte acrylic for an image with lots of fine detail and fairly subtle colors, it works wonderfully. The light loss doesn't bother me, there's very little glare even at acute angles opposite a...

    Feedback i've been seeing a LOTo of ads

    Over theast few days, when I log in to (only tried it on my android phone with firefox so far), I get a LOT of LARGE ads. Some of these consist of a list of links with thumbnail photos, where some links are apparently a thread here on cameraderie, and others are advertisement...

    If cameras are ISO-invariant these days...

    I'm not sure if that's not what is already happening...

    San Sebastian, Northern Spain

    Beautiful! I spent about three hours in Donostia on my way to Africa years ago... Didn't get to see all that much of it, so I'm really enjoying your photos here :-)

    Fuji Working on my own gear purge, but....

    Amen! Add in IBIS, and I'll be all over it. Regarding lenses: I can't see myself ever not having an X100 series camera, and I'm strongly considering adding an XT2 or XH1 with the 50/2. It's small-ish, weather sealed, and a big enough jump in focal length from the X100's 23mm to avoid...

    Filosofical Friday: What Camera Could Stand Up to Our New Smart Phone Overlords?

    I think if Olympus were to take the 4/3 sensor and stabilisation know-how, and place those in a series of waterproof, rugged compacts with: - evf - flash - decent controls - 9mm, 14mm, 20mm and 40mm f/1.8 lenses, - hand held pixel shift for those high resolution geeks - top hinged rotating...

    RX10 MkIV -- Six months into the mission

    Good to read that you like it so well, Jock! I'll be borrowing my mom's Mk III for a 3 month backpacking trip starting in 2 weeks (yes, she's an angel). I'm excited by the prospect of isolating lots of little details with a strongly compressed look, and I'm very curious to see whether the size...

    Fuji Let's start talking about the X-Pro 3

    Ooh TIFF output sounds like a dream come true! I'm fully in Camp Luke on the aperture dial, I love the full stops dial on my original X100 and, apart from playing with it once, literally never used the inbetween apertures in almost 7 years of using that camera as my main setup. I like how...
