Sony A7R III First Impressions – Upgrading to Sony Full Frame from Fujifilm X-series
I’ve been putting money aside for the past few years in anticipation of the Leica Q2. Unfortunately since Leica is making it difficult for me (along with everybody else new to the brand) to procure one, I decided to use that money on a Sony Full Frame system instead.
I purchased the A7R III, the Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM and the Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM with the money I set aside for the Leica Q2. I also bought the Zeiss Batis 40mm Close Focus lens. Reviews on all 4 will be coming soon.
For the time being, I’ve brought it to Japan on a short vacation and have some impressions. It turns out that with every shot I take, this decision is proving itself to be the right one.
Photolemur 3.0 Review – Unleash those idle vacation photos
Photolemur is an interesting app that claims to offer “the world’s first fully automated solution for creating perfect photos.” The word “perfect” is relative when it comes to photography, most photos are edited to taste and what’s “perfect” to one person may be rubbish to another.
Nevertheless, there are certain repetitive techniques that most of us employ when it comes to post-processing a certain type of image. For the sky in a landscape photo, you might reduce the highlights and boost the vibrance most of the time. You can start to imagine how this might be useful for casual photos that are not portfolio quality, but still need some editing before distribution.

iPod – #myrecordplayer
As someone who grew up in the late 90s and early 00s, the iPod is to me what a vinyl record player is to someone who grew up in the 60s and 70s.
Some thoughts on the Fujifilm X-H1
So after many months of rumours, Fujifilm finally announced the X-H1. X-H is a reverse-play of the abbreviations for Hyper-X. Like most of the bodies that come out of Fujifilm, I’m sure it’s a solid camera.
My question is, who is this exactly for? And why is there a need to amalgamate the new features it brings into a new product line?

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”.
