The X-T3 is here!

The X-T3 is here!

There’s so many new mirrorless cameras coming out that it’s hard to keep everything straight. But while Canon and Nikon are scrambling to catch up in the mirrorless world, Fuji’s gone and released what I think is the most compelling camera this season. In many ways it bests the ‘hot’ new Full Frame cameras at a much cheaper price, and with a more mature system. And to top it off,…

Fuji X-T100 Now Available

Fuji X-T100 Now Available

The Fuji X-T100 (not to be confused with the X100T) is now available for purchase. It’s the cheapest 24MP Fuji body and a great way to get started with the Fuji lineup. If you don’t need the X-Trans sensor, or would find a forward facing screen useful, the X-T100 should be high on your list. I wish it came with the 23 f2 or one of the other Fujicrons as…

Fujifilm just announced their newest Fuji-X Camera, the X-H1. Will it’s IBIS open the shooting envelope for Fujicron lenses, or is it’s size too bulky for Fujicron fans? IBIS and Low Light When comparing Fuji’s f2 primes with their older, f1.4 equivalents, many photographers worry about low light performance. For many, an extra stop of light can be the difference between getting the shot and a noisy, high ISO mess.…

X-Pro2 Replacement Eyecups for when the stock piece falls off

The X-Pro2 is an awesome camera but it does have one annoying design flaw: the eyepiece falls off way too easily! The mount for the rubber eyepiece doesn’t have a retaining lip and it’s not seated very tight. If you put your camera in and out of your bag, the eyepiece rubs against the bag and eventually falls off. In my case, it fell off during the night and there’s…

Fans of the X-E form factor have been waiting for a new version with Fuji’s updated 24MP sensor…and it’s here! You can look at the X-E3’s new specs elsewhere.¬†I’m most excited for the size reduction. It’s smaller than the X-E2 and matches beautifully with the compact ‘Fujicron’ lenses. Could make for a great compact travel kit. The f2 primes are tapered to work with the X-Pro2’s Optical View Finder, but…

Sale on Fuji Cameras – Save up to $500 on Camera Bodies

One of the appeals of ‘Fujicron’ lenses is their relative value: for many losing a stop of light is well worth saving hundreds of dollars. Another way you can save money is by opting for the last generation of camera bodies. It’s not the latest and greatest, but older camera bodies still take the same amazing photos that they did last year. Digital bodies depreciate in value relatively quickly. If…
