First Shooting Impressions: Fujifilm XF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 R LM OIS WR

I haven't shot with a 70-300mm lens since the old film days. It was a must-have lens in any kit, but I rarely used it. I had my 300mm f/2.8 for sports and 80-200mm f/2.8 for weddings and events, so I had no need for a lens in this range. 25 years later, I finally get to try a 70-300mm again, but on APS-C format. The 1.5x crop on APS-C gives me a 107-457mm equivalent in full-frame, essentially giving me a super-telephoto lens. Check out my latest video as I test the new Fujifilm XF70-300mm f/4-5.6 R LM OIS WR at Iona Beach Park, Chinatown, at night and at Second Narrows Bridge photographing boats and trains. 

BHT LIVE: Fujifilm X Summit Post Conversation

I thought I would do something different with this year's Fujifilm X Summit. Since this was a virtual event due to the pandemic, I thought I would do a virtual live discussion with you all about what we saw at the event. The big show stopper was the announcement of the GFX 100S. It's the ultimate compact digital medium format camera. Come join the conversation and leave a comment in the video. Thanks for watching and talk to you later


King of the Compact: X-E4 vs X100V vs X-S10 vs X-E3

My first impressions of the brand new Fujifilm X-E4. What do I think? I think it's great... but I still have to wait for my review sample to arrive. Hopefully, I'll have it next week. Until then, please watch my overview of this camera and compare it against the X-E3, X-100V and X-S10.

Best EDC Camera: Ricoh GR III vs Fujifilm X100V

Hello everyone, it's been a long time since I've had both of the latest X100 and GR at the same time. I think the last time I had both was back in 2014 in Hong Kong. Good times. I decided to revisit both these cameras and start a long term review comparing these two cameras. Please enjoy this video and let me know in the Youtube comments if you have any questions. Sorry, I've removed the comment feature from my blog due to spam comments. I hope you understand. Thanks and happy shooting!

I'm Finally Replacing My 2015 Macbook Pro 13"

I love my Macbook Pro 13" 2015. I love all the ports, I love the keyboard, the retina display, the design. I even had 16gb of ram and a 512gb SSD to make sure it lasted. However, it was time to replace it. I hated the butterfly keyboard so I knew I had to wait until they would replace it, which they started doing in 2019. However, I was also considering going with an iMac and use the new iPad Pro 12.9" as a laptop replacement. Which way did I go? Please check out my latest video.
