    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...

    Wildlife Photography

    I'd prefer a dedicated section but here we go. I am genuinely interested in suggestions/tips for future opportunities. I took this yesterday morning. Obviously, it was a 'grab shot' in the sense I could just about anticipate what was going to happen but getting my lens onto it was all I could...

    Add a dedicated Wildlife section

    One area of photography which I think it would be interesting to make 'cross camera' is a dedicated section on wildlife. I'm not aware such a section exists on GetDPI (in case I have missed something please direct me to it). It is a popular genre and I would be interested to be able to see...

    FS Fujfilm GF 45-100 f4 - Like new boxed complete - UK sale only

    Selling my 5 month old Fujfilm GF 45-100 f4 for the GFX system. This is a 'like new' lens, looking in Lightroom I have only ever taken 185 photographs with it since I purchased it in December 2020. The glass is perfect, the front element was protected with a 82mm filter (not included) since...

    XF 200mm f2 plus TC1.4x at all time low in the UK

    I've been round and round on a decision over a dedicated prime wildlife lens over the last year or so because the one lens I would have liked to own I felt was massively over-priced: the XF 200 f2 with 1.4x TC. Park Cameras is currently selling them in the UK for £1900 off the current RRP of...

    GF 100-200 or GF 250

    Any thoughts from people who own both lenses? The main use would be wildlife portraits. Especially my local foxes. I do use my 45-100 at present but the 100 end is not long enough - although cropping in I still get fantastic detail. I would inevitably use either lens for some landscape and or...

    Sigma DP3 Merrill - best of shots

    I thought I would go back through my DP3 Merrill shots to see if I could improve any with the new TopazDenoiseAI software. However, I discovered I never really used the camera beyond base iso and therefore additional noise reduction software was not necessary. Anyway, seemed like a good excuse...

    Is this the lens that will save Olympus?

    You gotta hand it to Olympus. Just when everyone is expecting them to become a fond memory they come up with a monster wildlife lens in a compact package. Too rich for my blood but the one additional piece of...

    "If Carlsberg Did Cameras..." the Ricoh GR

    I've written a blog piece about my seven years of using the Rioch GR and the successor GRIII cameras, likening them to "probably the best cameras in the world." The article also contains a link to a gallery of my top 100 images taken with Ricoh GR cameras since 2013.

    GF30mm f3.5, first shots.

    First time out with the GF 30/3.5. 24mm equivalent is one of my favourite focal lengths. I've been waiting a long time for this lens and I also have been through mental hoops deciding should I even keep the GFX system. Quite literally the first photo out of the camera. 'HOPE' bridge in Camden...

    FS: Fujfilm GF 63mm f2.8, less than one year old, mint-

    Genuine reason for sale: I've just bought a 30/2.5 and I want to release some cash from other GF lenses. I like the 63mm very much but there is too much overlap with other GF lenses I own so it needs to go. I bought the lens as factory refurbed from WEX in the UK. I am happy to provide the...

    Some Z6 questions

    I am once again thinking seriously about a Z6+FTZ adapter+Nikkor 500m PF for bird photography (this despite the recent Canon announcements). The real draw is the 500pf which I have liked the look of since it was launched. They are now in decent supply and I can get one if I want it. However, I...

    FS Fujifilm GFX50R+GF45/2.8+GF63/2.8+GF50/3.5+Laowa GF17mm UK sale only

    After much internal debate I've decided I no longer need my Fuji GF50R medium format camera and lenses. The system is excellent but my commercial/project needs do not need a system this powerful and I'd prefer to release the money invested in the system for other camera purchases. All my...

    X-H1, why oh why?

    I decided to get a second X body for a project I've just been appointed to deliver. It is going to involve a lot of reportage at events which cannot be recreated. Nervous that if I relied on my X-T3 alone I'd be taking a risk I decided to get a second body. My choice was to go for the X-H1...

    First photos of the GF45-100

    Fuji Rumours showed off the first photographs of the forthcoming GF45-100 zooms and they revealed something I was not expecting, OIS on the lens. When the lens was announced I was a bit 'meh!' but...

    EM1X or not - just spitballing

    Just spitballing. I just don't feel I have a satisfying bird photography rig. I've really been round and round trying to determine best bang for buck plus best weight for my age. I currently use the X-T3 and 100-400 and it a good set-up. Far, far better than the G9+200/2.8 I was previously...

    The Capture One Conundrum

    This comes up regularly in forums and YouTube. I know it sounds like the title for a 'Big Bang' episode but it is one that interests/concerns me as a Fuji user. The conundrum is whether as a long-time, skills-invested user of Lightroom (in my case since the free beta version) I should convert...
