    Fuji Charlene Winfred and her journey with the 35mm 1.4

    The 35 1.4 is my favorite Fuji lens. I had the f2 version for a while, but I always preferred the look of the 1.4. I have a bunch of lenses, prime and zoom, all are good, but the 35 gets the most use. If I could only keep one, the 35 1.4 would be it.

    Putting the 18mm through it's paces

    Nice set! I love my 18, it resides on one of my X-T1s.

    What's your oldest "living" digital camera?

    Nikon D200 from 2007. Still works great, but I don't get it out very often.

    Canon Ah, the joys of a pocket camera!

    Beautiful, I still carry a G11 with me when I don't want to lug my Fuji gear. I've also spent some money with AofA, been an airgunner since the 70's. Small world, isn't it?

    Fuji X-H1 further musings

    I picked up a new X-H1 with battery grip during the recent sale. I still have a couple of X-T1s, I'll probably sell the black body and keep the silver one as a back up body. I like to use primes, including a large collection of legacy lenses. The IBIS works really well with these lenses...

    minor theft

    I have a doorbell security camera. I've never lost a package, but I did see footage of a girl walking up on our porch, looking straight at the doorbell, covering her face, and leaving. My wife had several packages delivered that day, without an obvious security device visible, I doubt that she...

    Kamlan 50mm f1.1 APS-C lens (on Massdrop)

    The exif data is wrong, but the 35mm 1.4 was on the camera right before the Kamlan. Taken before Christmas last year. I don't use it much, but I don't plan to sell it. It's sharp enough in the middle of the frame wide open, but it does improve when stopped down. It works well for portraits.

    Fuji Nikkor on Fujifilm X-T1

    I saw the ad, and called immediately. I doubt it would have lasted the day. One of my best finds, ever!

    Fuji Nikkor on Fujifilm X-T1

    I picked up a Nikon FM with a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 and a gorgeous Soligor 70-210 3.5 for $45 on the local FB Marketplace page. It really looks good on the Fuji. I took a few handheld shots in the garden to see how this combo performs. I'm looking forward to having some quality time...

    Fuji Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 on X-T1

    I've been looking for this lens on ebay for a while now, it's hard to find a nice copy under $100. I saw one the other day, attached to a nice Pentax Spotmatic with a $30 buy it now price. The seller knew nothing about cameras, but the pictures looked good, so I took a chance. It showed up...

    Fuji Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 on X-T1

    I picked this lens up yesterday for $30, I haven't had a lot of time to play with it, but I think I'm going to like it. Quick shots, taken with a monopod in low light to demonstrate DOF. I'll have to get used to focusing this lens, these old eyes don't work as well as they did 40 years...

    First roll of Fujifilm ACROS 100

    I shot a roll through my Mamiya 645 with 80mm f1.9 lens. I bought five rolls, the other four are in the freezer. Pictures taken at the Belle Isle Conservatory in Detroit. The 80mm f1.9 has a razor thin depth of field at this distance, nice lens, but my 80mm f2.8 is sharper.

    Film What FILM (!) photography related item did you buy this week?

    I just picked up a Konica III in excellent condition. Running some film through it now. The camera is as old as I am, but in much better shape. ;-)
