Fujifilm X-Pro2 – My 6 month field review

Some lifestyle work with Dora from a workshop I taught (lens: XF90mmF2).
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.   Continue reading Fujifilm X-Pro2 – My 6 month field review

Fujifilm X-Pro2 and some popcorn

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.

Triopo Oubao F3-500 TTL studioflash for location use

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.
