    Tempted, very tempted... GRIIIx

    Gotta hand it to Ricoh. I think they are beginning to build momentum for the GR. My hand keeps on hovering over the pre-order button. 40mm equivalent fixed lens. Plus an adapter that increases it...

    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    A newer style old Ford Pop. Sandwiched in between it and an A35 is the car that was once the car of my dreams....

    I am a sucker for G.A.S. and if that 20-35mm wide zoom has good quality I'm in

    Off topic but talking about GAS I cannot believe the price of the GFX50SII - even with the 35-70 kit lens... I think it is about the same price as a Z7II+24-70 here in the UK...

    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    On my travels, again, this time to Haworth in Yorkshire, famous as the home of the Brontë family of Victorian writers. This is the Old School Room, in Haworth built by Patrick Brontë, the father in which all his six children taught. It is often felt to be the most important of all the historic...

    Fantastic building, well captured. Is that Saffron Walden by any chance?

    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Latest acquisition, first test: X-T4, XF 18mm f1.4 LM WR. Seems to be a sharp and colourful lens. Haven't really played around with the wide-open capabilities. I hope to do that tomorrow. There was a lot of strong contrast today and I needed to process the photos through ColorEffex to really...

    Mount Fuji Active

    To my enduring shame when I was a child I visited London Zoo where Guy the Gorilla was incarcerated in an enclosure that you wouldn't keep a dog in (having been built and designed by the Victorians) and joined in with the popular sport of throwing monkey nuts at him. It was how zoos worked in...

    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Not that much fun and not even a photography taken with a Fuji but this is what happens when your XT-4+XF10-24 does a header from your tripod to the floor, if you are cack-handed at securing it on the tripod head. Thank goodness the lens mount broke instead of the camera mount. I had a 16mm 1.4...

    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Bart, absolutely no need to apologise and I hope my response was not interpreted as any criticism of yours. I love this forum, everyone - you included - are always generous and kind with comments. I actually feel a bit dumb that I missed the obvious artefacts in the photographs. My response was...
