It all started in December of 2011. I bought the Fujifilm X100 camera. And the reason I bought it was because it was so damn cool looking. That's about it..... oh, and it made some really amazing images. I could not believe I was cheating on my beloved Canon 5D2.. but I was and I was lovin' every minute of it.Read More
I am a born & raised Calgarian. I was born on parade day 30 years ago and have loved everything about the Calgary Stampede ever since. This year I bought tickets to the Chuckwagon Races and Grandstand show and brought along my Fuji X-Pro1 & X100s. And once again they have forced me to slow down and think.Read More
It has been a couple of weeks now that I have owned the Fuji X100s and it still amazes me every time I use it. When I had the X100 I knew when I was using it. It was a bit awkward to use. I had to try and focus a few times. I did not realize it until I upgraded to the X100s, but I was more focused on the camera than making photographs with it. It did get in the way for me.Read More
It was 2011. The Fujifilm X100 was first released to much critical acclaim. For me the retro look is what drew me into it. I pined for it for several months and finally bought it in November of 2011. My first impression of it was.. it sure looks great. I loved the files the camera was producing but the autofocus was hard for me to adjust to coming from a dSLR. I was expecting too much from this camera's autofocus and the more I accepted that this was not a dSLR the more I loved using it.
Fujifilm had definitely infected me with the bug.. of which there is no known cure.Read More
It is no secret that I love gear. I love buying gear. I love selling gear. I love talking about gear. Gear!
I have always been a dSLR guy. I started with a Canon Digital Rebel XT back in 2004 or 2005. I went to a Canon 40D from there in 2007 and then graduated to full frame with the Canon 5D Mark II in 2009. I have since traded that in for a Canon 5D Mark III last June. The image quality with the 5Dmk3 is phenomenal. I really have nothing bad to say about it. The only thing that I don't like about it is that carrying it around places is a huge pain in the ass. I can do it when I am going somewhere I know I want the speed and quality of the 5dmk3, but not for traveling. Which lead me to buying the Fuji X100. It had great image quality with an APS-C sensor in a awesome looking package.Read More
