Hello from Berlin

or should I say Guten Tag! Just a quick post to let you know what I am up to. I am in Germany on a conference, I packed my Fuji X-E1 so I did not have to lug the D800 around with me, and surprisingly it has done very well. One frustrating issue I did […]

Friendly Cows

Why Shoot RAW? I was having a chat with another photography enthusiast and they shoot everything in JPEG and when I said I only shoot RAW there was a GASP followed by “Why would you shoot RAW?” (asked with a condescending tone and a confused face) For me, it is one of the NOT NEGOTIABLE […]

Heading Home Today After almost 1500 kms of driving around the South Island of New Zealand I am heading home. As I write this blog post I am at the airport waiting to board my flight to Sydney. I have seen some amazing scenery and had a great Easter long weekend away with my wife […]

More Fuji XE1 HDR

I am loving the X-E1 for landscape and HDR photography I know, I have rattled on a fair bit about this camera in the past few months, but I do really think these mirrorless wonders will supersede the DSLR, especially for the majority of the market… I think they call them prosumers… anyway, to me […]

Fuji X-E1 Raw files

Forget the Fuji raw converter… I think I already had said somewhere here that the Fuji raw converter is about as much fun as giving yourself root canal therapy! During the past week I upgraded to Adobe Photoshop CS6 and that includes the new Camera Raw that handles the Fuji .RAF raw files with ease… […]

Sagacity

My 2012 Photojourney Here is a selection of my Photojourney for 2012. It was a year of learning, up until this year I never had worked out what kind of photography I loved, I now have discovered Landscape and what I call HDR Plus – The music is from around 1995 when I was in a […]

Fuji X-E1 versus Sony NEX-6

A head to head battle… I was hoping to do a comparison between the NEX 7 and the X-E1 as I know many people are wondering how they compare. Now Sony has released the NEX 6, the specs of this camera are very close to the specs of the Fuji X-E1 but can it come […]
