Dear friends, It has been a long time! Hope you all are doing fine. I would like to share with you a few photos and some rich photographic experiences I have made throughout 2017. Last year has been a very rich year between photography and me, many things happened. Feel like to share with you … More RETROSPECTIVE ON 2017
I have been lent a Sigma SD Quattro + Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art by Sigma. Thank you, Christian! These are niche products not to put in anyone’s hands. These cameras can truly do wonders as long as you know their strengths and weaknesses. Just keep in mind these are no mainstream tools. But that’s also … More FOVEONING – SIGMA SD QUATTRO IMPRESSIONS
The Canon EF 135mm f/2 L USM is an unique lens. If you are looking for very shallow depth of field and being able to shoot at a distance (for example that the subject is distant 10-15 metres from the camera) with a smooth creamy bokeh, this is THE lens you need! Period. This is … More CANON EF 135L, KING OF L

To be perfectly honest, I did not try all of them! But…I am in the photography since long enough to recognize what is good. At the beginning of my love story with the X-system, there was a X100. Although I liked the concept very much, I was missing having the choice of changing focal length. … More MY FAVOURITE XF LENS?
The Fuji X sensor produces images of outstanding quality. It is a great performer in low light and high ISO. Images are clean and almost noiseless up to 3200 ISO; they are so clean that sometimes I add some noise in Lightroom for a moody aspect and character. Some of my fellow photographers use sensibility up … More NIGHT AND X – A LOVE STORY
The classic FD 50mm f/1.4 with S.S.C (= super spectra coating). How does this lens from another age behaves when mounted on an X sensor camera? Fuji X have an extraordinary lineup of lenses, and I will come back to some of them further on. But my first interest in switching from my ‘old’ … More FUJI X-E2 & CANON FD 50/1.4 S.S.C – CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND
