Veydra: One Disappointed Client

I was really counting on being able to share some clips shot with the Veydra Mini Primes and my Fuji X-T2. I placed an order with Veydra on February 11th for a set of three Fuji X-mounts in the hopes of shooting a short documentary and alerting potential X-H1 owners that there exists a much...

Veydra Mini Primes Fuji X-Mount

It's been nearly a year since Veydra announced Fuji X-mounts for their Mini Primes, and as there hasn't been any footage whatsoever online with the combination, I thought I'd go ahead and order a set to see how I feel about them with an APS-C sensor. Below are some screen grabs shot with the Lumix... Continue Reading →

Thoughts on the Fuji X-H1

I've already gone ahead and ordered a few Fuji X-mounts from Veydra for my Mini Primes, however - I'm not about to abandon my GH5 just yet! There's a reason why my X-T2 has been sitting in a dry box for nearly a year while the GH5 goes wherever I go. The audio meters on... Continue Reading →

Fuji Acros Film Simulation

Shot with the Fuji X-T2, 35mm f/2 lens and Zhiyun Crane. Genesis of the project I'd been wanting to shoot with Fuji's Acros film simulation for a while, but didn't have a clear idea of why I should choose monochrome over color. I often decide to embark on a project from sheer contrariness. For example,... Continue Reading →

Fuji X-T2: Skin Tones

The Vietnamese New Year is just around the corner and (almost) everyone's getting dressed up in ao dai and having their picture taken. I met a few photographers here who swear by primes: none of them even own a zoom lens, yet they're absolutely certain that primes are somehow superior. How anybody who only owns...

Field Test: Fuji XF 50-140mm f/2.8

As usual, all shots were taken around Book Street in District 1, Saigon. The build quality of this monster is on par with Zeiss. The focus, zoom and aperture rings are dampened to high hell, which I happen to love. Autofocus is fast and completely, utterly silent. The 16-55mm f/2.8 amazed me, the 35mm f/2 astounded...

Review: Fuji X-T2

After my rant last night about the lack of meaningful exposure aids on the Fuji X-T2, I've settled down a little, and had my first opportunity to actually go out and grab a few clips with it, along with the Fujinon 16-55mm f/2.8 lens. It's been drizzling all day, so I couldn't do much shooting.... Continue Reading →

Fuji X-T2: Creative Perfection?

I just picked up the Fuji X-T2 and a 16-55mm f/2.8 lens yesterday afternoon and, while setting up the camera, I happened to notice that in movie mode, there are virtually no exposure aids: no histogram, no waveform monitor, no zebras, just an impossibly tiny EV meter. I thought I must be mistaken, since I'd... Continue Reading →
