The Future of Photography

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2.8, 1/100 sec, ISO400) Photography always played an important part in my life. Just like music and HiFi. But both hobbies seem to be endangered today. What happened? About 12 years ago Apple introduced the iPhone. A mobile phone that looked radically different...

The Future of Fuji X

Canon PowerShot G7 X (15.79mm, f/4, 1/5 sec, ISO200) When I got the Fuji X100 in 2011 I had no idea that it would change everything. It was just supposed to be my compact, take everywhere camera. One year later I got the X-Pro1 and slowly added...

Old Friend / Fuji X100F vs Fuji X100

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (35mm, f/8, 1/13 sec, ISO200) Usually I wait until I have taken at least a couple of hundred or thousand images before I write a review of a camera. But this case is different. Very different! I bought the Fuji X100 right when it was...

500 – Got My Mojo Working

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/4, 1/1250 sec, ISO200) Blog post 500! I started this blog about five years ago. My major inspiration was the Fuji X100. Now my main camera is the Fuji X Pro-2. Seems that very little has changed. But that’s not true. I...

No Enlightenment

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (35mm, f/4, 1/1800 sec, ISO200) It’s not that I haven’t been here before. I was in New Delhi many times but I still managed to put two premieres into this visit. I already visited Humayun’s Tomb and the Red Fort but this time...

The Perfect Place

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/400 sec, ISO200) There are three kind of places. Places I like, places I don’t like and places I love. Taipei is a place I love. Strangely I don’t even know exactly why. But before I talk about this I have...

The Power and the Glory

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/4, 1/8 sec, ISO200) When you grow older you become a more rational person. You think twice before you spend an huge amount of money. I thought more than twice but finally decided that I live only once. This is a blog...

Another Year Over

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (35mm, f/2, 1/125 sec, ISO320) Well almost. Just one more week. Time to look back and ahead. Looking back: 2017 was annoying, entertaining, boring, fun, horrible, beautiful, exciting, stressful, breathtaking and everything in between. Looking ahead: Tomorrow is Christmas. So Merry Christmas to...

The First Five Years with Fuji X

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 (35mm, f/5, 1/680 sec, ISO200) Exactly five years ago I have made a terrible mistake. I bought a second hand Fuji X Pro-1 together with the XF 18/2 R and the XF 35/1.4 R. Since then nothing remained the same. Of course it...
