Fujifilm X-T2 Battery Grip Review – A Must Have

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. 

Here are a few of my thoughts and a break down of how it works.

Canon SL2 (EOS 200D) – First Impressions

I don’t do a lot of reviews on cameras I don’t own, but recently I had the Canon SL2 for a weekend and was so impressed by the way it shot and felt that I had to take it out for a day of shooting.

Here are my initial impressions. 

Helios 44-2 Review | A King Of Character

If you’re looking to get started collecting old vintage lenses from the 80’s and 90’s, then the Helios 44 series is a great place to start. They are known for their beautiful large swirling bubble bokeh.

There are several variations of this lens all with different character. They are all similar and different but built with the same goal – to copy the Zeiss Biotar.

One of the more interesting vintage lenses is the Russian made M42 mount Industar 50mm f3.5 pancake lens.

The Industar has won lots of praise over the decades and people really seem to love it. So is the lens good?

Fujifilm X100F – A Real World Review

The X100F is Fujifilm’s new masterpiece and the fourth addition to the famous x100 line of cameras. The X100F seems to have taken the biggest step forward of any of the X100 camera upgrades with a new 24MP sensor and new battery for improved life and performance. Not only that but the X100F is also a autofocusing beast.

It’s what I consider the most versatile fixed lens camera money can buy and a street photographers dream come true.

Fujifilm 35mm f2.0 – Review & Sample Photos

  20.11.2016   Alik   Blog, Lens Reviews, Reviews   1 Comment

The Fujifilm 35mm f2 R WR lens is one of those lenses that you can just fall in love with almost immediately. It’s small, fairly inexpensive and produces some really nice image quality. But more than that, it’s got character.

Although the Fujinon 35mm f2 is by no means perfect, the lens is priced in such a way that many of its flaws can be forgiven. It’s also incredibly durable, making this lens my first choice for anyone looking to jump into some primes.

Fujifilm 27mm f2.8 – Review & Sample Photos

  24.10.2016   Alik   Blog, Lens Reviews, Reviews   1 Comment

The Fujinon 27mm f2.8 pancake lens is one of Fujifilm’s smallest and lightest lenses and is a perfect fit for the photographer looking for something compact and low profile for street shooting or travel.

The 27mm produces an field of view with the 35mm equivalent of 41mm. From overall image quality to the mechanical build, this lens is a very solid lens. Optically it can produce some amazing images while never holding you back with any major flaws.

Because of its small size and weight, it becomes one of those specialty lenses that every Fujifilm shooter should consider taking a second look at.

Fujifilm X-T2 Review – Just About Perfect

Did Fujifilm just make the best APS-C camera on the market?
