    Fuji New Fuji camera?

    Oh wow. I all of a sudden got interested in that XE4 27mm kit. And I've happily ignored almost every Fuji up to this point. But the prospect of a small body with an EVF and very few little buttons on the back, direct manual controls and a 40mm-equivalent lens? That sounds kind of wonderful. Like...

    So, I thought I hadn't taken any pictures Tuesday. But then today I switch my.camera on and went back through the images and remembered - oh yeah, I snapped this through the bedroom doorway on my lunch break! I liked the light and the colors. Still do.

    That's a really good price. I've all but given up on accessory finders for the GR, I just never take to them... But my film Bessa T literally requires them, so I'm always kind of on the lookout.

    Sony New Sony Flagship Camera

    It's a beast! Actually downsampling from 8.6K to 8K video, now that's just boasting. But yeah, as many are saying, Sony is the one pushing FF mirrorless forward, forcing the other manufacturers to keep up. L-mount is a good thing but wouldn't exist in its current form without the help of Sony...

    Personal gear review

    And why not try testing the market with something other than Olympus rehashed formula? Like what about a simplified body with few buttons and controls for the purists? An LCD-screenless body? Maybe a compact body with vlogging capabilities and a good EVF like the G100? Let's see some...

    Great stuff, Miguel! That Automat Glass looks so cool. I have to admit that, while instant film makes perfect sense for a challenge side quest like this, I never even considered it for my weekends. It looks a good deal easier than sitting for half the day in front of the computer and scanner! :P

    Well, I must admit that I failed this weekend, and the past week, to shoot even a single frame of film.

    Micro 4/3 Panasonic's in-camera Monochrome filter/s

    It's clear that the monochrome modes in Panasonic cameras were styled to replicate B&W film with a color filter. I've wondered before what it would be like shooting digital with a color filter in place... I might give it a try with the GF7, currently the only Panasonic left in the house, in a...

    Micro 4/3 Panasonic's in-camera Monochrome filter/s

    I won't lie, half the reason I tried out an LX100II was for L Mono D, if the results had been the same as the GX9 with the 20mm 1.7 or 30mm 1.4, I'd have had a difficult monetary justification to try and make! Unfortunately the sensor/lens combo just don't have the same secret sauce as the GX9...

    Those look good, really good. I did use dynamic monochrome a little in older Lumixes, but not enough.

    That's one reason I don't like focus by wire mirrorless lenses much anymore (that that you were using one of these), you can't just rack focus to infinity and shoot. I appreciate lenses with good focus throws and clear markings more and more the longer I use a rangefinder. The Ricoh GR III is...
