To keep the lust for new gear nowadays is pretty hard when you see the first reviews of the X-Pro2, the X-E2s, the new XF lenses. Even the competitors came up with some interesting new toys and tools. What can you do in these kind of days ? As an act of defiance I pulled out an older cam...

I was totally unprepared, totally forgot that this event was coming up. So no protection for the lens, no protection for my eyes, ND filters but not the right step up ring and I thought oh well next life then. In the morning but I just couldn't resist to try to take a few shots out of the window, hand...

My first attempt somewhere in August 2015 was a total failure and not one had turned out worth posting. This time all signs also looked not promising, rain and strongish wind. I have still not managed to get a XF 55-200, so my gud ol XC 50-230mm had to perform the show. I decided to go somewhere around f16...

Let's move beneath the surface of St. Petersburg and fly through the night. I haven't seen that many undergrounds around the globe but of those I have the one/s in St. Petersburg are the most amazing once. Be it going deep into the earth or the rich architecture and art of the stations.   The floating lights above sleeping/dreaming passengers.   Kirovsky Station.   Pushkinskaya Station...

The entire city is like a museum, the architecture, art, the canals and colorful nights makes you walk and walk and shoot...

Finally I had a nice opportunity to test one of the "new" tracking modes. Singapore was celebrating it's 50th and many events were planned across the islands. I usually don't bother as it is hot but moreover crowded. As a family at least we wanted to see the air show which we had not yet in the 8 years we've been...

I'm eagerly anticipating the new 4.0 firmware for the X-T1 especially for my 60mm lens which can take the fun out of shooting when it starts hunting. Overall the Fuji lenses are good in low light and the X-T1 itself too. I have set max ISO to 3200 and the camera will always max it out but the noise...

It took me a while until I pulled the trigger after endless readings, touching and testing.. Oh no a bag isn't just a tool, it's like the Fuji-X cameras something to enjoy and use. I was looking for a small bag to comfortably take a cam and 1-2 lenses if at all. Just before I decided for the Ona bowery I...
