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...

Summer break
1st July 2021

Time for me to take a little break. I’ll be travelling in July and August. Returning to my beloved hometowns, Florence and Paris, to see family and friends after almost 2 years (614 days). I will see you all back here in September with new content and all the news. And maybe… maybe… a new Fujifilm camera?

How To Photograph The Supermoon
24th June 2021

Tonight we will witness the last Supermoon of the year, so what is it and how to photograph the Supermoon? This was the topic of a conversation on Clubhouse last Monday as part of our Astrophotography Club. I was asked to talk about my experience and give some tips on getting these photos right as, coincidentally, I am running a moon series on my Instagram @fabienb. Plenty of moon shots there, and...

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...

One Minute Message
29th April 2021

I just received my first dose of Covid vaccine! Some people have strong opinions against vaccines… Personally, I don’t understand them, but I do respect every opinion. But to me, this is a big deal! And it can be for the future of my channel as well! You see: my photography used to take me abroad for the majority of my time, travelling around the world to document all the beauty of...

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...

Snow Moon moonset in London
4th March 2021

February’s full moon is called a Snow Moon, and here you will see the full Snow Moon moonset in London. Right between the City skyscrapers. If you have been following me for some time, you know I’m a sucker for a good moon photo. The moon is, in fact, featured a lot in this blog: I’m sure there will be more in the future as well. It’s just a subject that I...

Instagram banned hashtags
25th February 2021

Once again, I found that I had used one of the Instagram banned hashtag. Now, this has nothing to do with the infamous “shadowban” practice controversy. I noticed a slight decrease in engagement compared to previous posts, so I decided to investigate a little. Turns out that the hashtag #sunriselovers had been flagged for inappropriate content. Which meant that it was not generating any engagement because my post was hidden by Instagram....

And of course, it was never guaranteed that I would get it! But the efforts finally paid off. You can find all about it in my latest YouTube video… And I promise you: it’s going to be EPIC! Also, is the Fujifilm X-T4 simply the...

Snow in London photowalk
3rd February 2021

First (and so far only) day of snow of 2021, so of course I had to go out for a Snow In London photowalk! I love the snow, maybe because it is always been so rare in every city I have lived in. In Florence, for example, people still talk about the snow of 1985… This rare! The river Arno also froze, and you could walk over it, so that’s why the...

Fujifilm GFX 100S
28th January 2021

Yesterday, during their X-Summit, Fujifilm officially announced the new GFX100S and it’s a beauty! It’s the fourth large format mirrorless camera from Fujifilm and it really is the best yet. It is incredible how much punch is packed in this tiny body. Still with all the great features and excellence of this large format sensor. But in less than 1kg and with much better ergonomics! And, of course, the well-known image quality...

become a better photographer
22nd January 2021

If you ever want to become a better Photographer, there is one thing you need to start doing right now. Particularly when you’re starting this new career, it’s very easy to fall into traps. You buy a new camera because you saw all the great examples of what it can do in YouTube videos or Instagram posts, and you go straight out capturing everything you see. You find your photographer “role-models” and...

full time Fujifilm photographer
14th January 2021

Why I shoot with Fujifilm cameras and how I decided to be a full-time Fujifilm photographer are the two questions people ask me most frequently. As I’m spending more time in the studio now, because of the lockdown, this is a chance for another talking head video and time to answer these recurring questions. It was probably always in the cards, as Fujifilm has been with me since the beginning. But it’s...

Happy New Year London New Year fireworks
1st January 2021

Happy New Year, my friends! We are finally leaving 2020 behind us… Such a challenging year for the whole world! Exactly a year ago, I was fighting with the crowds to secure my spot at St.Paul’s Cathedral in London to get the sunset aligned with the London Eye. Something I achieved, as you can see in my latest Instagram post. Little did I know that fast forward twelve months, I’d be facing...
