Fujifilm XF 8mm F3.5 R WR
26th May 2023

I had the opportunity to use the new Fujifilm XF 8mm F/3.5 the day it was announced—almost out of the blue. I asked one of my contacts at Fujifilm if they had the 8-16mm lens at hand because I needed an ultra-wide angle lens to photograph an apartment for Airbnb. The spaces were a bit restrictive, so I wanted the widest non-fisheye lens in the Fujifilm range. Luckily, a magazine reviewer had...

Ulanzi Aircross F38
18th May 2023

A few weeks ago, Ulanzi sent me their new X-Aircross F38 travel tripod for video creators to review. When I created my channel, my goal was not to do gear reviews. But these seem to have become popular and get good engagement, so I have made a few of them. All available on this blog as well. And companies have noticed. As per my other reviews, the video is not sponsored. Ulanzi...

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. This lens was always...

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 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...
