1. Fuji X100 First Contact

    Comment
    First shots from the Fuji X100 and you can colour me impressed – the colour and handling of light and shadow is fantastic, especially at higher ISO’s. I made the mistake of thinking the battery was charged, so only managed half an hour before the big red battery sign came...

    Comment
    Those nice folks at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust found my little old website and saw the images I’d posted from the great photographic day they offer and asked if I could supply some high resolution images for possible use on their website and the 2014 Calendar. Just created a...

    Comment
    With the Olympics on its last lap of the track and into the home straight, it’s clear that the London 2012 Olympics has been a massive success for our little island. Team GB has excelled and out-performed our medal haul in Beijing, but more importantly there’s been an Olympic spirit...

    How did you take that photo? A question often posed by photographers and one not just answered by technical means. An article by Carsten Krieger on the dpreview website takes you through the process of the image. The hardest part, is taking the time – you can (admittedly if you...

    Comment
    A few posts ago I announced that I was getting a Pentax ME Super (for crazy cheap price). Well, maybe there was a reason for said crazy cheap price! The viewfinder had a rather large smear across the top of it and it looked like some light was entering upon...

    Sounds like a line Jeremy Clarkson would deliver on Top Gear, but it’s actually the conclusion of leicaphile, photographer and camera nut, Steve Huff, whose site has become a great go-to site for up to date, real world camera reviews (rather than the pixel peeping type on dpreview). This is...
