1. Still a reason why it’s known as Fujifilm

    The Fuji X series of camera’s were a shot in the arm for Fuji as a digital camera manufacturer, stealing inspiration from Leica in the retro-tastic X100, at a fraction of the cost and adding a host of additional features over its German doppleganger. Whilst the X series goes from...
  2. Goodwood Revival 2014

    Comment
    Just posted a new gallery of images from Goodwood Revival this year, with a host of images that are styled in gloriously saturated colours, in a nod to both the Revival event, which celebrates all things from yesteryear, and my previous post about Kodachrome slide film. The images were taken on...
  3. Electronic rangefinder?

    The new X man on the block from Fuji is released into the urban jungle, in the guise of the X100T. T stands for tremendous, or terrific I imagine, or something mystically Japanese meaning, like flowing water, technology evolves… It’s dressed up like my original X100, but refinements are what...
  4. Supercharged X100

    Very quick top tip for X100 owners. Use a faster memory card, such as the Sandisk Extreme Pro 16GB memory card, with write speeds of up to 95mb. I’ve found since using this card over the Samsung 16GB card I was using, it’s far more responsive in reading and writing....
  5. Berlin Lights

    Just back from Berlin, where we sampled the highlights of the city, and the wienerschnitzel, the currywurst, and the odd cocktail or two… A great city, with so much to see and a nice vibe. Modern, but so much of the city either a celebration or a memorial to the...

    Discovery of an interesting and engaging website, with great content and a good voice is a rare find, so I was pleased to come across the FlixelPix site. It’s a little ambiguous about whether he is a professional photographer, or semi-pro, but the photography has great style to it and...
  7. See the Light

    We visited Gloucester Cathedral at the weekend and marvelled at its glory. It didn’t start well – we entered I was immediately confronted by a man who wanted to know where I was from. Maybe it was the heavenly surroundings, maybe the choir echoing through my brain, or the early...
  8. Rewind Festival

    The Rewind festival held in Henley-on-Thames over the weekend saw a host of 80’s artists entertaining the 20,000 strong crowd under the blazing sun. Some weird and wonderful dressing up by the festival-goers, but I was their more for the music, so only grabbed a few images, including these two....
  9. Fuji X100 First Contact

    by
    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...

    No, nothing dodgy to see here…just news of a new camera acquisition! The amazing looking (modelled after Leica M3, so can’t be a bad start!), and fantastic feeling Fujifilm X100! Dad, if you’re reading this…just buy one now to avoid extreme jealousy! I bought a Sony NEX 5N late last...
