The Fuji GFX50S does Landscape Photography

I’m just back from a four day landscape photography workshop on the Isle of Skye with the GFX50S as my travelling companion. Here’s my thoughts on landscape photography with the GFX50S performed. The Experience I don’t drive. This has never really bothered me until I started with photography. Living in London there is not much need of a car, but it means it is tricky to get to locations without public transport. Attending a workshop seemed liked the easiest short termRead more

60 minutes with the Fuji GFX 50s

A few weeks ago I reached out to Fujifilm UK and asked if there would be a launch event or something similar where I could as quickly as possible try out the GFX. It turns out there was a launch event in the UK, but it was a closed event and I had already missed it. To my surprise, Fujifilm offered to meet me at my local cafe for breakfast and a cheeky private demo. Concerns from using X-Series CamerasRead more

Two Days with the Hasselblad X1D

I thought I’d be sensible for once and try before I buy so I headed out to East London to my new friends at PearTreePhoto and rented a Hasselblad X1D for the weekend. The wait for my own X1D has been longer than expected and this seemed like the perfect way to sate my lust for new gear and to verify the X1D fits into my workflow and the type of photography I do. Meaning, this was a practical field testRead more

The Case for the Hasselblad X1D

I admit I find the Hasselblad X1D immensely attractive, its appearance is almost reason enough to want it.

The X1D is a camera begging me to hold it, use it, press its button all while quietly whispering ‘my precious’ to yourself. Jokes aside it looks like a fabulous piece of engineering and I really look forward to trying it out inRead more

Oslo City Break – What’s in my bag?

Funny how part of the reason I bought Fuji was to save on weight, but I still ended up taking all my gear with me everywhere I went. That your gear weighs less just seems to mean you bring more and then most of the time I did not use most of it anyway. This is something I have tried to pay more attention to lately and for my street photography I just bring camera plus lens. For portrait workRead more

Review: Lee Filters Field Pouch

My preference is to travel light and bring as little gear as possible with me. That’s true whether I’m in London to capture moody cityscapes or in northern Sweden for icy sunrise landscapes. For my long exposure work all I need is my X-T1 camera with the XF16-55mmf2.7 lens attached, my Lee Filters 100mm set and a tripod. All of the above fit snugly in a ThinkTank Turnstyle 20 sling bag, except the tripod which I carry in my hand. It turned outRead more
