The Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO Review

Today Laowa released their newest offering for mirrorless camera systems. The Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO. I was so fortunate to be sent a copy late November 2019 to test out a bit and give my thoughts on. Now, I’m NOT a macro...

The 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 review

Hey! So it’s been a long time since I did a little writeup on anything other than Fujifilm gear, but that is about to change! Last month saw the launch of the Fujifilm X-Pro3, which I had been very much involved in, and as a...

X-Pro3 – Vintage’d

As has become customary on this site of mine, I always end up writing a little about using vintage lenses on the newly released Fujifilm gear. With the release of the X-Pro3, this is no different! – In fact with the X-Pro3 I feel that...

Laowa 17mm f/4 GFX review

Fujifilm TX-1 – The original XPan

I was in Japan at the beginning of may. Fujifilm very successfully launched the GFX100 (read my first-look here) at their big Fujikina event. This was the second time I went to Tokyo, the first time being in October 2018. You might have seen the...

Should You Buy The Fujifilm X-T30

Although pitched as a “mid-range” camera, the specifications of the X-T30 are actually pretty impressive – in fact, it would be fair to describe it as a “miniature X-T3”. That, in theory at least, makes it great for a number of reasons – it’s available...
