    Wing umbrella lighting

    I've posted about getting wing umbrellas in the gear acquisition thread. But never shown why I like them or what they do as a light modifier. The wing umbrella has become one of my all time favorite modifiers. Its lightweight and extremely easy to set up, being that it is an umbrella. But it is...

    Fuji X-T4 discussion

    The X-T4 announcement is later this month. The first, what should be small but will actually be big, rumor. The D pad will be on the T4. And there was much rejoicing. https://www.fujirumors.com/fujifilm-x-t4-d-pad-or-no-d-pad-the-answer-in-this-article/

    We know the 50mm f1 will be out this year. But, it was announced at the Fuji Summit that 4 new lenses are coming in the next 12 months. Any guesses what the other three may be?

    Fuji X-T4 discussion

    It looks like the X-T4 is set to be announced in Feb. And possibly shipping in March. I've read that it will have IBIS, and probably a slightly larger body. But nothing about the sensor. Or any changes to buttons or control layout.

    Fuji Autofocus woes

    I shot a show Saturday night at pretty well lit music hall. The X-Pro2 did well for the most part. But some shots I missed due to the autofocus not being able to lock on that would have been amazing. Or at least I think they would have been amazing. Which leads to the inevitable question of do I...

    Tried a 15 minute exposure

    Since the Pro2 can do a 15 minute exposure, and I got a new 10 stop in, I figured why not try it.

    Bokeh is overrated...

    I found this to be an interesting video. Granted that may be due to my own views on photos have come to a similar place. And yeah, there was a long stretch of time which only recently ended when I shot nearly everything at f1.2-1.4.

    So, this isn’t another typical which focal length is better for portrait work. That discussion has been beaten to death, resurrected, and beaten to death.

    Godox ad200/Flashpoint Evolv 200 pro vs standard

    I have changed my lighting from a pair of Godox AD600 lights to a mix of four Godox/Flashpoint 200's. Two standard and two pro models. I wanted to write a bit, or get long winded, about the 200s, and the differences between the standard and pro models. I want to say now, that this is obviously...

    Uncool move amazon

    Got a lens from Amazon. They just slapped a shipping sticker on the lens box and sent it that way. Not even tape to keep the box from being tampered with. No extra protection for the package. Fortunately it arrived, and undamaged. But lame on Amazon’s part

    Fuji Charlene Winfred and her journey with the 35mm 1.4

    I posted this in a reply to a thread going on an entirely different subject. But it is worth a stand alone thread. This is a great read about Charlene Winfred's years shooting all of her personal work, and a lot of professional work, with only the 35mm 1.4. This article is also great about what...

    Fuji New personal best for battery usage

    Fuji Fujicrons vs their larger siblings

    Am I the only one who finds they prefer the Fujicrons over the larger aperture versions? At least with the 23mm and 50/56. The 35s are a wash for me as they both have qualities I love equally. Working with the 23mm f2 and 56mm 1.2 really brought this home for me. I've been going back over older...

    Fuji Fuji killing the 33mm f1

    What me be the literal elephant in the room, after looking at the comparison photo. The 33mm is being scrapped in favor of going with a 50mm f1. The reason is due to the size. The 33mm had to be huge in order to have the corner to corner sharpness which would be demanded of it. We're talking a...

    Fuji X-E1 sensor vs the rest

    I guess this would also apply to the X-Pro1 sensor. In different fuji groups on Facebook and other outlets around the web. A lot of people seem to swear by the X-E1 sensor and the images it produces. Liking it far better than any of the other sensors in the Fuji X system. Which has me...
