    Fuji Is it me or the cameras?

    In a recent discussion with a local friend, who is also a Fuji shooter. He mentioned that he liked my portraits shot with the X-Pro2 better than the stuff I've done with the X-T2. It was one of those he couldn't point a finger to. But that there was something he prefered from the work done with...

    I suspected they might be fun to photograph based on their description, so I tossed the XT1, 56, and rokinon 12 into the little Domke bag and went. Sure enough, they blew that place apart. Incredibly engaging, polished without being boring, just wild. I connected with them at the set break and...

    Fuji Dear Fuji, 70mm 1.4 please

    I would love for Fuji to have a 70mm 1.4 in line for development. This would give us a 105mm equivalent prime. I love what I see from the Nikon and Sigma 105mm's. Enough that I considered more than once, picking up a D700 from the used market just to get one of those lenses. But I would much...

    When using the camera in manual mode, if I change the aperture from 5.6 to 8 the viewfinder, screen and eye, flickers back and forth between the two brightness levels. It seems to expose correctly but the flicker is disconcerting. I hope it is not the beginning of something worse. Any...

    Fuji Two pieces of equipment Fuji should make

    There are two things that Fuji could easily make (or, for that matter, a third party, with Fuji in mind) which would make life easier for us. The first is an X-E battery pack/grip. The camera is just too small for grownups to hold. I have grips for both of my X-E2s and for my X-Pro1, and...

    Fuji Don't need 100MP?

    For those of you who don't need that 100MP sensor in the Fuji GFX 100, here's the GFX 50S with the battery grip. I really like how the shutter release can't even make it over to the end of the camera. Yet, knowing Fuji, it probably feels great in the hands.

    Infrared Gear The Meike 25mm f1.8 and infrared

    The 18-135mm Fuji zoom is reputed to be an excellent lens for shooting infrared. Indeed, that's the reason I purchased one. Many Fuji lenses suffer from fairly bad to truly awful "hotspots" that render them unusable in infrared photography, which is too bad, because Fuji bodies are readily...
