A detailed look at some of the great features of Macphuns Aurora HDR photo editing software. In my opinion, the best HDR software I’ve ever used and so much more.

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.

The Specs . . . 4k video, a 24 megapixel sensor, two-way tilt screen, dual UHS-II memory card slots, boost performance of 14fps with a battery grip.

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

X-Pro 2 Kaza Deluxe Case Review

Kaza Deluxe makes some of my favorite leather cases and their leather half case for the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 is no exception. These cases are simply awesome and are without a doubt the best bang for the buck considering everything that you get.

I’ve been using this case and the Kaza strap on my X-Pro 2 and couldn’t be happier. The cases are handmade so by no means are they perfect. Shipping also takes some time since they come from Hong Kong.

Fujifilm X70 – A Quick Review

  13.06.2016   Alik   Uncategorized   2 Comments

The Fujifilm X70 is the answer to those who want amazing image quality in as small of a package as possible. It has a lot of the same things we love about the X100T, but is much smaller and much lighter. In terms of image quality, it might be the best camera I’ve used that’s still small enough to fit in your pocket.

Sounds great right? That’s what I thought, but I actually don’t love it. Here is why . . .

Sony A6300 Review – The Full Frame Killer

  22.05.2016   Alik   Uncategorized   No comments

The Sony A6300 is Sony’s flagship APS-C camera. Compared to the A6000, the camera features an all magnesium weather resistant body that feels much more rugged and solid in the hand. The camera also features a new sensor and the ability to shoot 4k. With Sony’s growing APS-C lens lineup, the A6300 is one of the most versatile yet affordable cameras on the market.

It’s also one of the first of a new generation of APS-C cameras that are closing the gap on full frame.

Sony A6300 vs Fujifilm X-Pro2

The Sony A6300 and Fujifilm X-Pro 2 are probably the two most interesting mirrorless APS-C cameras on the market right now. Although they seem similar because they both feature a 24 megapixel Sony sensor and an EVF off to the side, the cameras are actually very different. Not only in terms of ergonomics but the technology that powers them. With most review sites only fixating on high ISO performance, sensor sharpness and auto focus, I wanted to take this time to point out that there is a lot more to a camera besides what the sensor can do.

Here is the quick comparison between the A6300 and the Fujifilm X-Pro 2.

Drobo 5D Review For Photographers

The Drobo 5D is one of the latest storage raids by Drobo that features a 5 disk array with a thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connection. Drobo has gotten a sort of bad reputation over the last few years; many photographers gave up on them.

But have they improved? Are they worth using again? To find out, I took the risk and purchased one to test out. So far, I’m pretty happy.

LIM’S Leather Case Review – Sony A7rII / A7II

  16.09.2015   Alik   Uncategorized   1 Comment

If you’re thinking about adding an extra layer of protection to your Sony A7r II, then a half case might be a good idea.

I use leather cases on almost all my mirrorless cameras and have loved every one of them. The LIM’S genuine leather half case is no exception

The LIM’S Leather Cases for the Sony A7rII is made very well. They come in lots of funky colors but I ended up with the black and red. The case does add a bit of weight to the camera but also gives it a solid, protected feel.
