Let me be honest. I’m not a rangefinder guy. I grew up shooting medium format and SLRs, both film and digital. I’ve barely used a Leica, and only held a Fujifilm X-Pro1 in my hands once without even taking a picture with it. That’s why I thought it would be a great idea to share my thoughts with you on the Fujifilm X-Pro2! Don’t you agree…?! Well come on in and read more about it.

I knew about Fujifilms planned release when I went to bed last night. What I hadn’t expected, was waking up to a mailbox and Facebook account flowing over with messages from people asking me about all the juicy X-T2 details… Continue reading Fujifilm X-T2 launch!
Finally I get to say woohoo! Right before Christmas, I had a meeting with Fujifilm Nordic where I got to play around a little bit with the X-Pro2 a few weeks before the official launch. I was hugely impressed even from that very brief encounter, and I have really been looking forward to starting using it since that.
And finally today, a nice guy from Schenker arrived at the door with a package. And not only did it contain a shining new X-Pro2, but Fujifilm Nordic had also sent me a couple of bags with something that I believe must be Japanese popcorn. Ahhhhh… So sweet! Those guys are the best! The popcorn was a bit on the dry side actually, but I managed to get it down with half a bottle of Sake. I’ll of course be back with a thorough camera field review after I’ve had the chance to use it for a while.
I’m actually starting to get tired of myself. Each time Fujifilm comes out with a new lens, I seem to go bananas with the ohs, ahs and woohoos. And now Fujifilm Nordic has been kind enough to let me shoot with the XF90mmF2 lens for a little over 3 months, so click inside to see if it’s woohoo-time again. Continue reading Fujifilm XF90mmF2 R LM WR field review
The Chinese manufacturer Triopo recently sent me something that up until now was nothing more than a rumour on the web. The brand new Triopo Oubao F3-500. A battery powered studio and location flash, with a whopping 500Ws effect. The on board rechargeable Li-ion battery means zero cables, something that makes life so much easier. It can also run on mains power without the battery. Click to continue reading a little bit more in this preview, until I reveal the full review in a few weeks.
One of the most important things for me is that images have some kind of mood. And even though I normaly shoot stills, I have started to experiment with film. And when good light meets great model, my finger just can’t help but pushing the record button.
This weekend I was so lucky to be invited to lead the National Photowalk in Trondheim. In cooperation with Fujifilm Nordic, Japan Photo Trondheim og Trondhjems Cameraclub, it turned out to be a great Saturday.
