My Top 3 Cameras for Street and Everyday Photography


Perhaps I'm in the minority, but 28mm is my favourite prime focal length for everyday photography. I know many might consider this a boring focal length, and I can understand why. Many prefer more extremes, like a 24mm or 50mm. However, remember that 50 years ago 35mm was considered a wide angle lens. 28mm was considered wide as well. With advances in optics, 24mm is relatively easy to design and build. I think focal lengths preferences can come and go like fashion. Currently, 28mm isn't 'in fashion'. In this video I pick my 3 favourite kits for street and everyday photography, and surprise, surprise, they're all 28mm!! Thanks for watching and happy shooting!!

Latest Fujilove Article: The Perfect Everyday Lens XF18mm f/1.4 R LM WR

 


Check out my latest article on Fujilove Magazine on the new Fujifilm XF18mm f/1.4 R LM WR. Many of you know that the 28mm equivalent focal length is one of my favourites as an everyday lens. I was never a fan of the XF18mm f/2, so this new professional spec'd 18mm is a lens I was eager to test. Check out my article for my full thoughts on this new Fujilux!

Should You Get the XF18mm f/1.4 R LM WR? First Shooting Impressions


Hello everyone, I'm a bit late posting my latest video review of the new Fujifilm XF18mm f/1.4 R LM WR lens. It's a lens I've been waiting for since the very start. As many of you know, I'm a 28mm shooter, since my original Ricoh GR1 from 1998. Although Fujifilm recommends this lens with the X-Pro3, I feel it actually works better with either the X-Pro2 with the 18mm frame lines in OVF mode, or the latest X-T4 for IBIS. Check out the latest video!

Latest Article for Fujilove Magazine: Fujinon GF50mm 1:3.5 R LM WR

 


Another review on Fujilove Magazine, this time the Fujinon GF50mm f/3.5 R LM WR for the GFX digital medium format system from Fujifilm. This 40mm equivalent 'pancake' design lens neither looks like a pancake lens, nor does it shoot like one. The bokeh rendering is nice, the autofocus is quick and quiet (for medium format) and the build quality is top notch. Compared to the GF63mm f/2.8 R WR, I prefer the overall lens design and performance. Read my full review on Fujilove Magazine:

3 Month Review: ASUS R.O.G. Zephyrus Duo 15 powered by 10th Gen. Intel C...


This is the third video in my series looking at the ASUS R.O.G. Zephyrus Duo 15 powered by 10th Gen. Intel Core i7 Processor. I've been using this laptop daily for over 3 months, and I've really enjoyed the convenience of having dual screens on a laptop. Instead of stacking my windows and alt-tab'ing to flip between programs, I can dedicate the second screen to secondary applications, such as OBS, Youtube Live, or messaging apps like WhatsApp, Telegram, LINE, or Signal. If you've been watching me on Youtube, I've been using the Zephyrus Duo 15 exclusively for my BHT Live series. Thanks to INTEL for sponsoring this series of videos. Full disclosure, I get to keep this laptop at the end of this project, which is great for me. Having both a MAC and Windows PC is great for me! Enjoy the video and happy typing...

Fujilove Article for March 15th, 2021: One Year After The Lockdown

In my latest article for Fujilove Magazine, I talk about my one-year anniversary since the lockdown in Vancouver, which began on March 18th, 2020. It's been a tough year for most of us, and a tough year for creatives and independent content creators. I look forward to getting back to the new normal, hopefully by the end of the summer.
