Twelve South makes great accessories for your Apple devices. One of their latest products is the AirFly Pro – a bluetooth adapter that acts as both a transmitter and receiver.
Coming in at 85mm full frame equivalence, the Fujinon XF56MM F1.2R is a prime (poor pun intended) example of Fujifilm’s focus on APS-C done right. At time of writing, no other manufacturer has a fast prime that provides this classic portrait focal length for APS-C bodies.
The XF56MM was one of the first few lenses that I bought when I switched to the Fujifilm X system, it still amazes me even after two years.
One of the pleasures of shooting with a Sony Full Frame E-mount camera is access to Zeiss’ excellent line of Batis lenses.
Known for the signature Zeiss “Pop”, the Batis lenses take traditional Zeiss into the 21st century by adding an OLED display, ridiculously light weight and weather sealing.
I purchased the Batis 25mm back in 2016 and have captured many wonderful memories with this lens.
I first heard of Marie Kondo – also known as KonMari on NHK World a couple of years ago. The mantra she was peddling was something like (heavily paraphrased) “If it doesn’t spark joy in you, get rid of it”. Being a bit of a “hoarder” myself, I was rather intrigued by this proposition.
The XF50-140mm is a must-have for any serious Wildlife, Portrait or Landscape photographer out there. It’s fast, sharp, has excellent Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and is weather resistant.
Its unique focal range and aperture is a testament to Fujifilm’s focus on the APS-C sensor, solely aimed at emulating the classic 70-200mm full-frame equivalent at F2.8. You don’t get a lens like this with other manufacturers’ mirrorless systems.
I’ve been using Version 1 of the Peak Design Everyday Messenger (EDM) bag for over two years now. It’s always been one of my heavily used bags. Not just as a camera bag, but as an everyday work bag too.
Needless to say, I rushed to order one when I heard that they were releasing a Version 2 of the product.
It’s no secret that I came away extremely impressed with the camera on the iPhone X. The set of dual stabilised lenses and Apple’s willingness to partially post process images in-situ made it close the gap even further on point and shoot cameras.
With interchangeable lenses, the iPhone X has even replaced my mirrorless cameras in “broad daylight” or “bad lighting” conditions 90% of the time.
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?
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 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.
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.
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
Could the Fujifilm X-T2 finally be the mirrorless camera that can replace a Canon or Nikon for bird photography in a more handhold-able package? To find out, I took the X-T2 to Hokkaido, Japan to shoot Red Crowned Cranes, Whooper Swans, and Eagles.
