Samyang 12mm best lens fujifilm video review
19th October 2022

I have always been a massive fan of the Samyang 12mm F2 lens for the Fujifilm X Series. In fact, it was actually the very first lens I purchased for my old X-T1, aside from the kit lens!It is my primary go-to lens for Astrophotography, and I use it a lot for Architecture and Landscape. It was also the main lens I used in my Fog cinematic vlog. Though this lens was...

I’ve been waiting for this new Fujifilm XF 150-600 R LM OIS WR F5.6-8 since the first rumours appeared on the web many years ago… And it’s finally here! Fujifilm has been kind enough to let me test this lens for a week so that I could take one of my famous moon shots. This content is not sponsored: it just so happens that Fujifilm and I have a great relationship… I...

Hoya Sparkle filters video review youtube
4th July 2022

Remember my Starry Nights short film? No? Well, it’s here to watch if you missed it: https://youtu.be/-1xWKCKgwG4 I mention it because I made that short film using the Hoya Sparkle filters, both 4x and 6x variants. These creative filters from Hoya make for very interesting results. But more importantly, they provide consistency and reliability to every image where you want to add a starburst effect (and maybe some soft diffusion). Something that...

Fujifilm XF 33mm
31st March 2022

Welcome to another lens review, this time for the Fujifilm XF 33mm F/1.4 R LM WR. And I’m going to tell you what I think straight away: this lens is marvellous! Probably one of the best lenses Fujifilm has ever released. The video I just published is mostly my professional opinion, more than a full review. But I know for sure you’ll find good info there. And as I already said, the...

Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review
4th September 2021

Now that we’ve been through the first impressions, it’s time for a proper Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review. I just started to edit and put together all the GFX 50S II content I created. And it becomes obvious to me that this will become a series because there is a lot of content! So, episode 1 was the first impressions video. Episode 2 is this Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review....

GFX 50S II
2nd September 2021

The Fujifilm X Summit Prime 2021 just ended, and among the news we now have a new GFX camera: the GFX 50S Mark II. Fujifilm approached me a few months ago to ask if I wanted to test the GFX 50S II while still in development. And of course I said yes. I could not tell anything to anyone or publish any content until today’s event, but now it’s the time! The...

fujifilm x-t4 long term review
14th May 2021

It’s already been over a year since I received this camera, so it’s time for my Fujifilm X-T4 long-term review! Time to make some proper evaluations. And despite my ongoing issues with the camera (my faulty unit, not general issues), I absolutely love it. The Fujifilm X-T4 is a fantastic camera, probably the best hybrid mirrorless out now. Everything it does, it does it well. And while the previous generations are still...

Fujifilm XF100-400
8th April 2021

I received the Fujifilm XF100-400 F/4.5-5.6 zoom lens from Fuji (not sponsored, I requested it as part of the Fujifilm Photographers programme I’m in). And so I went to test it in the woods, even though I don’t normally photograph much wildlife. I had an idea for a photo of the full moon (more on that during the video)… You know that I’m always keen on a good moon photo. Hence why...

Photographer's Everyday Carry EDC
16th March 2021

Here is my Photographer’s Everyday Carry (EDC). EDC includes all the nifty tools you always carry with you that may come in handy to overcome simple everyday unexpected problems. The famous “I’ll bring that, just in case…” Think of these items as the spare tire in your car, but more likely to be used (hopefully) 😉 I suppose in this digital age, even phone apps may count as EDC… Perhaps, this may...

vlog mitakon lens for street photography
20th August 2020

I did ask myself if the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 could indeed be the hardest lens for street photography. Despite the clickbait title, this was a genuine question I had. And so I decided to give it a good test. To this day, Fujifilm does not release blueprints for its lenses to other manufacturers. So you don’t often see other brands produce lenses for the X-Mount. One brand that comes to mind is...

Fujifilm GFX 50S
14th August 2020

I rented the Fujifilm GFX 50S for a job (office interiors and corporate headshots). But I still had some spare time to use it before sending it back to Fuji. So, of course, I made a video! I used medium-format cameras in the past. When in Florence, I worked with the medium format to photograph paintings, sculptures and all masterpieces of the great museums we have in my hometown! So this format...

4th June 2020

As you may know, if you follow me on Instagram, I spent last weekend going out doing a full Fujifilm X100V hands-on test. And I vlogged with the X-T4 in the meantime. I’m actually excited because it is my first vlog on YouTube! Something I had procrastinated for soooooo long. I finally managed to launch my YouTube photography channel only a few weeks ago and now I published my first vlog! To...

Fujifilm X-T4 | Jonas Rask
27th February 2020

The Fujifilm X-T4 is here! It’s official. In an event held in San Francisco last Wednesday, Fujifilm publicly introduced the new iteration of the X-T series.I currently own the X-T2 (2 of them), and I was in Tokyo on the day of the X-T3 launch. But I skipped that upgrade. I wasn’t shooting much video back then; therefore I didn’t need most updates of that version. I do video now and intend...
