  • Last time I purchased a 600mm f/4 it cost me $11k 600 f/4 at the SpaceshipOne Launch - Mojave Desert CA So I'm not seeing this as something that would be a high priority for Fuji - not a big enough ...
  • The initial 250mm samples posted were, quite frankly, painful to look at, and quite out of character for a Fuji lens. I'm hoping to see further samples to see if the early posts were an anomaly. Ce ...
  • Replied in Welcome!
    Welcome Manzur - nice write up of your journey and thought process. We see many folks going through the same series of realizations, which is challenging because for years they have been told that ...
  • This test image from the FujiFilm corp website appears to have a less nervous bokeh look than the sample images posted by X series photogs on launch day. This is much more what I'd expect to see. I ...
  • Replied in To the Sea

    Jim, Godox 2.4GHz system shown below: With the addition of clip on XTR-16/s radio receiver, a number of the legacy remote manual strobes can be combined as receiver flash units in the 2.4GHz flash ...
  • Just in from Hasselblad: Join us for this month’s Hasselblad Webinar focusing on lens adapters for the X1D. Thanks to the versatility of the X1D, a massive variety of lenses can be used on the ...
  • Smart solution! I'm busy filling up an 8TB NAS with my GFX files (RAW and PSD) - good job that storage is coming down in price every year! Now, when I can do it all on SSD at the same price, that ...
  • Replied in 27mm is awesome
    Nice FOV and a super effective final lens coating that resists flare  - important as their is no Fuji hood for this compact lens. Sharp and clean - I keep mine on my X-Pro as a street shooter kit - ...
  • Replied in I'd go prime
    Which model of the three are you asking about?
  • Replied in I'd go prime
    Thanks Dave :D
  • I always used to buy a zoom to start with, I thought the 'Swiss army knife' idea was good. Then, after a while I'd get upset that it didn't generate the look I was after. Then I'd sell it and buy ...

    This one was their 'Eco' model - i.e. cheaper Cheaper being a relative term with Elinchrom! :D :D :D Only $630 instead of $1300 for their not Eco model :-O You'd also need an Elinchrom pack to ...
  • Replied in Awesome camera
    Fixed lens is really an advantage and not a limitation - it becomes second nature to walk up and frame your shots with the 35mm FOV. you instinctively visualize after a while. very satisfying. Late ...

    Yes, and no http://www.godox.com/EN/Products_Camera_Flash_Witstro_AR400_Powerful_Ring_Flash.ht ml I've only used the basic Elinchrom ring flash, which is fine, but is a fully manual unit. I do like ...
