First Look: Leica M11 Rangefinder Digital Camera


It has finally arrived, the new Leica M11. I'm a huge fan of their prime numbered M cameras. The original M3 from 1954, the controversial M5, my beloved M7 and now the new digital M11. I've only had it for a week and it is a pre-production model so I'm not really supposed to pixel peep. However, I will insert a screenshot from Lightroom and you can see how great this sensor and lens is (35mm Summilux FLE).

My Favourite Travel Cameras for 2021: Germany Edition


Now that I'm back from Germany, I have a good idea which cameras I used the most, and which cameras or gear I enjoyed using the most. I don't think it's a big surprise which camera was my favourite However, it may be a surprise which camera I used the least... not necessarily the camera I like the least. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the Youtube video. Thanks for watching and happy shooting!!

Visiting LEICA HQ and the rest of Germany (special trip to ADIDAS HQ)


Hello everyone and welcome to my latest video upload. This vlog-like video is a quick recap of my recent trip to Germany. The first part of my trip was visiting Leica HQ in Wetzlar, Germany. I had an awesome time and I have a few videos coming up from that specific visit, including interviews with Dr.Andreas Kaufmann and Stefan Daniel. I also hang out with my buddy Juan Martinez from Beers and Cameras, and my super cool cousin Nagisa. I also got to meet fellow Youtubers Ted Forbes, Jason Roman aka Stockezy, and Samuel Lintaro Hoft aka Samuel Streetlife. Stay tuned for more videos coming up.

Thanks for watching and happy shooting!

Fujifilm X-T30 vs X-T30ii: What's the Difference?


The Fujifilm X-T30ii is not much of an upgrade from the X-T30 from a hardware perspective. An upgraded rear LCD screen and a larger memory buffer. You also get less in the box with no wall charger. However, what you are paying for is the latest and greatest firmware that works perfectly with the X-Processor IV that has been in every major X Series and GFX Series camera for the past few years. Is it worth the upgrade? For some the answer is yes, but for many it's a no with frustrations. Check out my latest video as I go over the differences.

Two Fujifilm X Summit live shows in 2021? Who would have believed it. There's lots to talk about so enjoy the official live event on Fujifilm's Youtube channel, and then let's go live to talk about what happened. Let me know if you have any questions, what you liked, what you didn't like, and what you most look forward to in the near future.

The official event starts 9am Eastern or 6am Pacific time here in North America. I will start my live recap video 3 hours later at 12pm Eastern or 9am Pacific time.  Here is the  link to Fujifilm's official video: https://youtu.be/3Bd8Oy4DDCA

Should I Buy This Fast Prime Lens?


Can you guess which lens I want to buy? If you look at the thumbnail, you already know I own the 28mm Summicron, so the only other choice is the new Fujifilm XF18mm f/1.4 R LM WR. Watch a grown man try to justify buying this lens in 5 minutes. Convincing enough? Maybe not, but I hope it's entertaining enough for you. Thanks for watching and happy shooting!
