Lens Mount Adapters vs 3rd Party Lenses For Your Fujifilm X Series Cameras


In my latest video on Youtube, we discuss using lens adapters and 3rd party lenses on your Fujifilm X Series cameras. When is it worth adapting older legacy lenses to your mirrorless camera? Are inexpensive 3rd party lenses from China any good? Is it better to stick to OEM lenses from Fujifilm? I'll try to answer these questions and more in this video.

Thanks to KEH Camera for sponsoring this video. Check out their website to see what they have in stock with over 60,000 items.

Is the GFX100S the Future of Fujifilm Design? Latest article for Fujilove Magazine


My latest article for Fujilove Magazine explores the evolution of Fujifilm's design language from the previous GFX 50S to the latest and greatest GFX100S. Although the overall feel is similar, the shooting style is very different. Fujifilm has slowly been moving away from traditional dials and the D-pad, and moving towards virtual dials and on-screen navigation. What do you think? Is this an improvement or a step backwards for Fujifilm? Check out my article and let me know in the comments section. Everytime you click and check out my articles on Fujilove, you're supporting my channel. Thanks and happy shooting!

Fujilove Article: My Post-Pandemic Return to Street Portraiture

 


In my June 1st article for Fujilove Magazine, I decided to write an article about my street portraiture adventures with my iPhone in the old days of my blog and Instagram account. Even before the pandemic, I was moving away from these impromptu meetings with random people, and I realize how much I missed these interactions. Check out my article and enjoy my past pictures as well as my future goals with my street portraits.

The Way of the Leica: Which Camera is Best For You?


I haven't done a Leica video in a while so I'm pretty excited to have all the latest and greatest cameras from Leica at BHT Studios. Thanks for watching and let me know on my Youtube video comments section which camera you want me to review the most. My guess is that it's the Leica Q2 Monochrom.

I'll continue testing more gear, let me know on IG, Twitter, and Youtube (no comments here, sorry) what you want to see me review.

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!
