This is a quick review of the Fuji 50-140mm 2.8 lens for photo and video, like most of my reviews there aren't any charts or depth of field shots but just a few images and my general opinion of the lens, enjoy.Read More
I’ve been meaning to do some more gear posts for a while, and as many of you know I’ve been a Fuji fanboy since the days of the original X100.
My gear has grown quite a bit over the past year or so, especially as I’m getting into shooting more video, so this post is a focus on what’s in my kit bag, a break down of everything and how I use it, plus a few tips and tricks along the way.Read More
The Fuji XH-1 is a stills and video workhorse in the Fuji lineup. Featuring a reinforced metal body, in body image stabilisation and a top plate lcd screen, this camera is currently everything I need in a professional setup.
Long gone are the days of ultra retro styling and although you get a couple of dials on the top this camera is much more ‘DSLR’ soars than anything else Fuji has put out in recent years, this ain’t a bad thing however as function trumps form when you are using these things constantly. A camera that can do the job is better than one that looks damn cool doing it. (However the new Fuji XF10 does looks awesome and is going to have a place in my bag)
I’ll keep this review simple and free of sensor testing charts and all that, it’s the same 24mp sensor in all the Fuji current lineup. For me it’s about the body and how it works and how it handles.
Magnesium alloy construction, reinforced lens mouth, weather sealed. It’s a tough beast which I’ve bashed about and soaked in Iceland this summer, it holds up. The chunky grip is really nice, especially if you're holding the camera all day it's much more comfortable that anything else in the Fuji lineup.
The sensor moves around in the camera giving you 5 stops of image stabilisation with any lens. Nice for low light slow moving photos but really really great for video, it takes out camera shake and gives nice smooth hand held shots. I’m doing more video these days and this alone is worth the upgrade from the XT-2.
That's pretty much all of the differences form the XT-2, the body and the IBIS, but if you're using Fuji cameras for any kind of video work you will love this upgrade.
Feel free to put your questions and comments below and I'll get back to you.
This review of the DJI Mavic Air is also my first experience with a drone, I've never flown one before so this is all from zero experience, to learning the controls to hopefully starting to master them.Read More

So the time came for an upgrade this year, it wasn't planned, as I was happy with the performance of the XE2 but I was looking to make some changes to my gear setup and what the future holds for my work, so on to the scene came the XT2. Well two XT2's to be exact.Read More
