    https://www.mirrorlessrumors.com/panasonic-announces-firmware-update-to-improve-the-shooting-experience-and-sharing-functionality-of-lumix-s5ii-and-s5iix/ What gets me excited about this news is that the firmware adds Pre-Burst that was missing on the Panasonic S cameras (where the Panasonic...

    Manual Lens TTArtisans 25mm f/2 (Fuji X)

    Got this yesterday and had a chance to wander around with it today. It is sharp enough (IMO) but the corners are pretty bad to my eye - but I was expecting that given that this lens cost £69 brand new. It feels nice on the camera, with smooth focus and a clicked aperture. I favour WA and UWA...

    Fuji Favorite Fuji X 1C1L walkabout?

    Just curious for those of you Fuji shooters who favor a one body one lens setup for generic walkabout regardless or genre. Not particularly for travel as that opens up a different set of criteria. I've tried several combinations but they keep changing over time. So if you had to select your...

    Manual Lens Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero D (Fuji X)

    I've been keen to get one of these for quite a while now and finally today was the day :) I am amazed at the tiny size of this lens - but it does have a 49mm filter thread (I have stuck on a 49-67mm stepping ring so I can try my 67mm magnetic filters on it). I was busy working all day so didn't...

    Manual Lens Pergear 12mm f/2 (Fuji X)

    In my (ongoing) search for the right ultra wide angle lens to use with my Fujifilm camera (currently an X-T5), I purchased this relatively unknown lens, lightly used, for about $100. The lens is currently selling for about $140 (USD) brand new so no one in their right mind would call the lens...

    Manual Lens Meike 12mm f/2.8 mk II (Fuji X)

    This Meike 12mm f/2.8 popped up during a random search with £50 off plus a 5% discount voucher... so I picked it up for £98 inc. postage. I probably wouldn't have bought it at full price but it seemed like a bit of fun to help while away the hours until Spring. It seems suitably solid and well...

    Manual Lens 7Artisans 12mm f/2.8 mk II (Fuji X)

    This lens was announced late December 2022, but I happened on it by accident whilst browsing Amazon. The mk I is a pretty well regarded lens but didn't have a filter thread (you had to buy some proprietary adaptor). The mkII has a 67mm thread and also has a new optical formula. Both lenses are...

    Advice Wanted Which 56mm for Fuji X?

    I've been looking at getting a few longer primes for my X-S10, starting with a 56. I'm not interested in the the Fujinon 56/1.2 - too expensive, too heavy, too big. I started looking at third party alternatives and was surprised there were so many options. As far as I can see there are 56mm AF...

    Leica and Panasonic formed a new alliance called L² Technology (Leica x Lumix)

    Interesting: Leica Lumix extends cooperation. Not sure what to make of this, but it is a interesting development.

    What do you mean when you say X% crop?

    There are so many descriptions out there from the technical to the simple and not many seem to agree. There's even an old thread in this forum that didn't really come to any resolution, other than accepting different explanations. Me? I'm simple. I think If I remove 25% of MP, that's a 25%...

    Fuji The end of the X Trans 4

    Looks like the X-E4 will be the last X Trans 4 sensor camera from Fuji. The X-E4 is the last camera Fuji is releasing this year. And the next camera will be the X-H2 with the new 32mp sensor from Sony. With the X Trans treatment of course...

    Fuji Four X mount lenses coming

    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?

    Up to their knees in it

    there is a large field at the bottom of our valley - we live up there on the top of the hill - all the local springs and streams flow into a very small river which we call "the mighty Dureze"(the river is on the first tree line) - anyway most of the year this "large field&quot...
