With the X-Pro2 that Santa bought, I've decided I'm going to sell my X-Pro1 and X-T1.
I'm exceedingly ambivalent about the 'bay nowadays, with the plethora of horror stories from sellers of camera gear.
I see there is a for sale forum here, but was wondering what's currently seen as the "best"...
It's Amazon Prime Day 2020, time for bargains! 💸 Most of the deals are for limited times so grab them while you can. :D
Here's the link to the "Camera & Photo" section of Prime Day 2020 listing all of the items as they become active...
Canon PowerShot A530
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
Alongside Ming Theins announcement, this was another impactful bit of news on my feeds this week.
So Matt has decided it's a good time to change gear he uses professionally. You may know he shoots pretty much all gear for review/youtube purposes but Nikon DSLR has been his professional core...
So an outdoorsy forum I'm also one has a thread titled "Knives and Books" and it's what you'd think, photos of a knife and a book together. It's just so nerdy that I had to participate, and I figured I'd post a few here as I make them. This is truly the height of internet culture. But I'm going...
Well, I surprised myself this week. I pulled the trigger on a barely used X-Pro3. It's due to arrive this weekend and I am looking forward to working with the camera - and comparing it to my X-Pro2.
But my almost-impulse decision to jump on the deal (the price was just too good) has kicked...
Currently my main kit consist of Sony A7III mirrorless bodies and Nikon D750 DSLR bodies. I feel fortunate being able to run two separate systems, but eventually I want to consolidate due to the current pandemic. Currently I use my Sony bodies for portrait work and my Nikon bodies for event...
When I moved into my condo, I had the closet designed & built and I'm generally happy with it. However using the shelves to store lenses, accessories, etc. proved to be a frustrating exercise. I order to find something, one needs to empty the shelf to see what's in the back and out of sight. The...
Just why do so many of us seem to acquire more and more "gear" in pursuit of photographs?
Lets just look at one of my favourite photographers, James Ravilious. Although he studied at art school (under an assumed name since he was the son of a famous engraver Eric Ravilious) he was a self taught...
About 3 or 4 years ago I decided to get out of mirrorless and just use fixed lens cameras. I settled on a Sony RX10 III for versatility and a Fuji X100T for its style. This was driven largely by my developing Parkinson's Disease and the resulting clumsiness - a sound decision.
In the last...
Man-in-the-middle attack ...
I know the title may sound click-bait-y, but please bear with me for a moment if you, like me, are susceptible to the affliction we call "GAS" ...
For us photography enthusiasts, chasing gear is almost as common a tendency as feeling dissatisfied with what we...
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...
I just came across a website called Shotkit today where various photographers covering different types of photography discuss what gear they use, why they use it, and provide a little background about themselves. For the gear porn lovers, the photographers also post a photo of their gear (along...
it would be quite nice to get a light meter that fits in the accessory shoe on my Zorki. The only ones I have seen on eBay are pretty expensive. Does anyone know of a cheaper option (say under £50)?
Edit...turns out there are loads of cheap options. I just had to phrase the search correctly!
As per my thread on the UK Photography Show, I now have an a6000 with the 16-50 kit lens.
I've also got an adapter to fit my old Russian Jupiter-8 50mm f2 lens so that should be fun!
First couple of test shots below. Nothing fancy but the 16-50 gets closer than I thought it would, and seems...
I went along to Birmingham on Sunday to have a good look at all the cameras I haven't been able to try out. My main aim was to find a smallish camera with a largeish sensor :) My main criteria were: clarity of viewfinder and display; build quality; ease of accessing controls; weight and comfort...
Hi fellow Fuji shooters…
Yesterday morning (September 15) my camera bag with my entire kit was stolen from the Grote Markt outside of the Markthal in Rotterdam. My brand new Fujifilm X-T2 and five Fujinon XF lenses, Lee filters, etc were inside of a LowPro Event Messenger bag. All of my gear...
