2017 – When designing for “Good Enough” made Great Products
2017 was a great year for Video Games, Technology and Photography. One recurring theme that I noticed is that several successful products were designed to be “good enough” in particular performance metrics and as a result. be great at performing several “jobs-to-be-done”.

iPhone X Camera Review – A Week in Italy
I was lucky enough to be able to get my iPhone X before my vacation in Italy last November and was very excited to take it with me given what I’ve heard about the newer camera modules in the iPhone 8 Plus. Could this be the best pocket camera ever?
The Best Accessories for the Fujifilm X-T2
The Fuji X-T2 is a fantastic camera, and you’ll probably be spending quite a fair bit more on Fujifilm’s fantastic lenses. Don’t forget some of these other essentials that can make your Fuji X-T2 an even better camera though. Here are my recommendations:
Apple AirPods Long-term Review – An ode after 10 months…
It seems like an eternity since Apple decided to ditch its headphone jacks on the iPhone 7 devices and caused a whole bunch of (what I thought was) overly dramatic reactions.
Now that the iPhone 8 devices are out and that the iPhone X is looming over the horizon, more people are going to face life without a headphone jack. If you’re getting your first pair of wireless earphones, I cannot think of a better pair to recommend than the Apple AirPods.

I’ve compiled a list of settings that I have changed when I bought the Fujifilm X-E3. Some of them make your camera function better out of the box, and the other are tied to your shooting style.
Fujifilm X-E3 First Impressions Review and Bluetooth Impressions
I’ve always wanted a rangefinder style second camera ever since I switched to Fuji last year. The problem was that the X-Pro2 was too big and the X-E2s was a half-baked attempt of refreshing a camera in 2016. When the X-E3 was announced, I knew I had to get one.
I’ve gotten one from a store here in Hong Kong today and have played around with it a bit. I’ll be taking it on a cruise this weekend so keep a lookout for a full review soon. Here are my first thoughts in the meantime.

So Fujifilm announced a bunch of stuff today. Here are my initial thoughts…
Fujifilm Fujinon XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Review – A Telephoto You’ll Love For Wildlife
The Fujinon XF100-400mm is the most expensive piece of glass you can buy for the X system. Ironically, this was also the lens that made me switch to the Fujifilm X system.
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS Review – Solid Landscapes
The Fujinon XF 10-24mm F4 was the first lens I bought for the X system back when I got the X-T10 as a second camera to my then Sony A7R II. This lens provides a solid wide angle option for the system in a package that does not weigh down the bag.
This review will not focus on charts in a lab or specs, there are dozens of sites providing that already. I will instead focus on my experiences of creating images with this lens, and where it sits in my current stable of Fujinon lenses

Review: Bird Photography with the Fujifilm X-T2 (Part 1) – Finally a Mirrorless Fit for Wildlife?
