Techart Pro EF to GFX smart adapter

So, I thought I was done with all the gear talk after the X-E3, XF80mm and GF45mm articles last week. But I have been testing a very exciting product for about a month and a half. It’s the Techart Pro Canon EF – GFX smart...

Fujifilm X-E3 Review – The liberator

It’s been a long time coming. The third iteration of Fujifilms X-E line of X-series camera. Built in a rangefinder “brick” styling, but without the OVF of the X-Pro line, the X-E3 is to its bigger brother X-Pro2, what the X-T20 is to the X-T2....

Fujifilm XF 80mm f/2.8 macro review – Closer to completion

Sometimes you just experience something that exceeds all your expectations in every possible aspect. The new Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM WR OIS Macro is exactly one of those experiences. I still can’t believe just how good and versatile this lens is. This is...

Delibrate candour

I seem to be on a blogging spree these past couple of weeks. I really don’t know why, but mainly I think it’s because I’m in a good place. A happy place. It has been brought to my attention quite often that people like to...

And other matters

I think I’ve finally made it! And why do I think this? Well. The inevitable happened. I now have some people following my every move on miscellaneous social media, and responding with lots of nice hateful messages about my images and my personality. To these...

Life and the lens

It’s the same thing every year. Around this time I take a look at the blog and go – “Why have I not written any posts lately!?” – And the answer is just about the same as always. I. Have. Been. Insanely. Busy. With. Life....

Repetition and progress

It’s that time of the year again. The annual gymnastics recital in our small town. Its a big thing in our family. Mainly because of the involvement of my better half. She does an amazing job. I’ve become quite fond of these annual meetups at...
