I'm in charge of the editorial content of dpreview. I joined DPReview when it was based in London in November 2009, after several years as a print journalist in the UK specialist photographic press. I moved from London to Seattle, USA, a year later and I've been here ever since.

Five reasons why Fujifilm probably won't make a full-frame X100

Some photographers have been asking for years for a full-frame version of Fujifilm's popular X100 line. We get it – we want one too. But here's why we think it's unlikely to happen.
