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.
