Fujifilm GF 100-200mmF5.6 Zoom – Mati Beetson

Hi All,

          here are my first impressions of the latest lens from Fujifilm for the GFX camera series; the GF100-200mm f/5.6 LM OIS WR lens.

I don’t really do technical reviews, there are plenty of tech head’s out there far better at spelling out the specifications than me, not forgetting there is a lot of useful information from Fujifilm’s own website.

I would, however, like to discuss the lens in use, in particular, my genres of choice Aerials, Landscapes & Nature. As a lot of the other review sites have suggested, this lens should be perfectly suited to my needs.

I was initially quite sceptical when this lens was announced on Fujifilm’s lens road-map, the focal length really appealed to me but the f5.6 aperture took some of the shine off my initial excitement. After reading through some of the reviews/first impressions from some Fujifilm X ambassadors and pre-production testers, I got the feeling I should really give this lens a go to see what it’s capable of.

Fujifilm X100F in 2019

On January 19th, 2017 the Fujifilm X100F was announced. Reviews and pictures of the camera could be found everywhere, yet I ignored and avoided the camera. The X-T2 plus the X-T1 met my professional and daily needs, so what was the point?

Coffee Shots Fired

There were three of us at the cafe. Helen’s eyes were locked into Michael’s eyes, Michael’s eyes locked into my eyes, and my eyes locked into the bacon and egg roll while making sure my baby isn’t locking her eyes towards the exit. Nevertheless, the atmosphere changed when Helen took out her camera. Continue reading “Coffee Shots Fired”

20 Minute Date with the 16mm 2.8

I’ve never been on a speed date, but last Saturday was a first for me. My hands were sweaty and I didn’t have the right words but it felt right to be in the moment. The way the lens looked into my eyes and into the eyes of everything around it was picture perfect. It was petite, beautiful and had a ring on it that went from f2.8 to f22. If you haven’t noticed already, I am talking about the latest Fujifilm 16mm 2.8.

Antelope Canyon – The Magic & The Reality – Stephen Vincent-Grace

Welcome one and all to a new year of blogs and content on the Fuji X Aus site made especially for the Fuji X Aus community. 2019!

To kick things off, we have a guest blogger today in Stephen Vincent-Grace. Stephen is a travel photographer and blogger of his own amazing site and today he shares with us some of his journey and experience with Fujifilm X Series. Stephen, the floor is all yours…

Sydney | People with Cameras 2018

(Featured Photo by Ivor Dwitomo)

Melbourne had the first piece of cake of ‘People with Cameras’ on September 1st. Us Sydney folks had no choice but to watch from afar. We knew PWC was coming to Sydney in November, but a lot of us were jealous to see the buzz on Facebook. The retailers brought in lenses, drones, tripods, filters and the sheer numbers of attendees out with their cameras on a rainy afternoon. Rumours spread vastly that Chuck Norris (Joe Jongue) himself led the Fuji X Aus photowalk. Continue reading “Sydney | People with Cameras 2018”

A Camera-Shy Photographer’s Journey to Vlogging {Part 1}

Most photographers would prefer to be behind the camera, not in front (unless you are Mark Saltissi, a full-time photographer and model.) So why did I decide to take the bullet by agreeing to do my first vlog? Because I know there are many camera-shy photographers in our Facebook group who are petrified to take the leap, so here I am. Okay, jokes aside and to the point, I’m naturally impulsive and I hope this blog + vlog (part 2) will inspire you to be more impulsive to vlog as well. Here we go.
