That Girl at the Club (NSFW)

Christina has been my colleague for a couple of years now, performing make-up duties for a number of projects. She’s also a dancer as well as an all-around great kid.

After all that time, she finally managed to persuade herself she should try standing in front of the camera, instead of being somewhere behind, usually shooting embarrassing backstage footage on her smartphone.

The Fujifilm XF2X TC WR with the XF 50-140mm f2.8: field review

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to get my hands on the Fujifilm XF2X TC WR Teleconverter. Thanks to Fujifilm Hellas I was able to use it extensively for quite some time, and here follows my hands-on review.

Last year I had tested the 1.4X teleconverter, and under intriguing conditions too. I shot a motorsport event, using the XF1.4X TC with the 50-140mm f2.8 and the X-Pro2. My results and verdict were that this extra piece of gear gives the 50-140mm lens a serious versatility advantage, without any compromises at all.

Batteries for Fuji-X cameras: originals, copies and issues

Battery life is traditionally considered a weak point for any mirrorless system. To be honest, many complaints with battery life stem from users handling a mirrorless camera just like a DSLR; chimping after each shot while, at the same time, leaving the LCD screen on all the time.

There is no arguing that smaller batteries –usually a standard situation with mirrorless- as well as the need to feed an LCD/EVF constantly, aren’t helping with battery life. Typically one would carry 2-3 spare batteries for a day’s worth of shooting, while a DSLR user could marginally make do with one.

The Fujifilm X-T2 for concert photography

Shooting live music comprises a significant percentage of my photography. It is also a style I enjoy a lot, both as a photographer and as a musician myself.

Thought the years I have used a number of cameras in this discipline and have grown to demand a number of features and level of performance in order to make my life easier; and also more enjoyable. Shooting with Fuji exclusively for quite some time now, I already posted about my first all-Fuji concert photography experience a few months ago. Now with the advent of the X-T2, I guess it was time to evaluate the camera in this environment. Which I did shooting this music festival, and there is where you can check out photo samples too (also all photos in this post are from that concert and the X-T2).
