I finally bit the bullet and got the Fujifilm X-T2 battery grip. I’ve been putting it off because I just wasn’t sure if I really would need this and take advantage of the extra features it offered – long story short, I bought it and it’s awesome.

There is a magical lens by Fujifilm that I feel just doesn’t get enough credit or praise and I wanted to dedicate a post to it and the insane bokeh it’s capable of producing.

What’s happened recently is that GFX camera dropped and it’s been stealing all the conversation in terms of depth of field and bokeh. But . . . with the right gear, the little ol APS-C X-T2 camera can still produce some absolutely incredible and professional shots.

This lens I’m talking about here has been one of my favorite lenses since the day I got it and is a lens I never go anywhere without.

Mastering Manual Focus | Fujifilm XT2

Lately I’ve been shooting quite a bit with the Helios 44-2 and other old vintage m42 manual focus lenses from the 80’s. While shooting with manual lenses takes more time and isn’t always as precise, it’s much more rewarding and you feel like you have complete control of every shot you take.
