When DPReviewTV ranked the Fujifilm XF10 as the third worst camera of 2018 I was honestly shocked. This is a market that I knew Fujifilm wanted to overtake, as it’s currently being dominated by one camera, the Ricoh GR II. In my opinion this wasn’t a hard feat, the Ricoh GR II is outdated, it only offers 16.2 megapixels, which is considered low based on today’s standards and it only offers 4FPS, this may not be a big deal to some, but that’s quite slow for those who shoot in burst mode.Read More
For those of you who have been here since day 1 then you remember the days in which I had the Fujifilm X-T1, it was pretty much the focal point of this blog and without that camera, I highly doubt I would have the following I do today.
In November of 2015, I expressed how unhappy I was with my kit and then in March of 2016 I announced that I had officially left the system and made the switch to Sony. with that being said it's been over 18 months since I've actually owned a Fujifilm camera (outside of my Fujifilm Instax) and in this video, I explain why.Read More
I typically don't blog about upcoming products... But with Fujifilm, there's always an exception, especially when it involves the Instax technology. For those of you who don't know I'm a big fan of anything Instax and I've been waiting so long for this announcement... And now it's finally here!Read More
The GFX 50S was a camera that I never considered using. $6000 for a body is next level, it's not that I didn't deem it worth it, I just knew it wasn't necessary for my style of shooting. However, when I presented the opportunity to shoot with it, my initial thoughts went out the window. It was lightweight, it felt like the Fujifilm X-T1 I use to own and it was beautiful. I began to wonder, can this camera work for the streets? Well let's get into it and find out.
Also, thanks to the fine folks at CameraMall, without them this First Impression would be IMPOSSIBLE!Read More
My good friends at CameraMall let me test our their copy of the Fujifilm GFX 50s (HUGE SHOUTOUT TO THEM)!!!!!. I only had 20 minutes with the beast, but man was it an experience! The camera was everything I expected in terms of it's image quality, but it did have some minor flaws... I'll get into that more during my First Impression's post.Read More
Through 2016 I spent most of the year shooting with the Sony a6000 and the Panasonic GX8. These cameras were both amazing in their own right, but they also lacked certain features I wanted for my go to body. The Sony a6000 was beautiful, probably the best camera I've ever owned when it came to street photography, however, the native Sony lenses was mainly designed to work with their a7 series, meaning they were all pretty much too big for my liking. I also hated that the a6000 lacked a flip out LCD screen, I started vlogging in 2016 and the lack of that LCD screen really hindered me.
The Panasonic GX8 was the second camera I picked up, I believe I had it for the last quarter of the year. This purchase was influenced by the camera's recording ability and obviously, it's flip out screen, I also loved the aesthetic of the GX8, it had that retro camera look, which is what every street photographer desires... Overall, the camera was perfect for the hobbyist in me, but when I was booked for paid gigs the tiny sensor just didn't deliver the results that I wanted... I would look at the files and just feel uncomfortable sending them to clients. This often gave me anxiety and at times even made me feel adequate. After every session, I would come home and ask myself "What camera is the perfect camera?" After tons of research, I came to one conclusion.Read More
Zoom lenses are typically frowned upon when it comes to street photography... I think we can make an exception for this one. Check out what I thought of the Fujifilm XF 16-55.Read More
