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 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.

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...
