Idaho Falls Farmer’s Market and Rafting in the Canal

Visiting my wife’s mother and her husband Jim in Idaho Falls, we went to the local farmers market, had mangos covered in spicy / sour syrup, and some beef jerky. On the way home, Jim and I picked up a tow behind raft for his boat. Near his home, there’s a small canal where the ...

Espresso Chalet in Gold Bar

Harry and the Hendersons merchandise, Costco treats, overpriced bad ice cream, espresso, and a view. My review? Meh out of 10. Only the ice cream shot was edited – shot RAW with my iPhone. Everything else was straight out of the X-T4.

Cave Hole, Coal Creek Falls, Quarry, and Fred’s Railroad Trail Loop

On our way up to Gold Bar this weekend, we stopped off at the Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park in Renton. It was pouring rain, but we hiked anyways – just over four miles (because we took a wrong turn). I brought along the Fuji X-T4 and 16-55mm f/2.8 lens. Even though I had the ...

First Outing with the Fuji X-T4

I’ve owned many a Fuji camera, and I can emphatically say that without doubt, the X-T4 is THE best Fuji camera to date! From video, to photo taking, this camera gets it right! The camera feels more solid than all Fuji cameras to date (save the X-H1), has the best IS, the best video features, ...

35mm Mirrorless Lens Shootout – Sony, Fuji, Zeiss, and Olympus – Which is the best 35mm lens?

In this video, I’ll be doing a shootout of 9 different mirrorless lenses with a 35mm (or equivalent focal length). The goal is to determine which one has the nicest rendering. I test for up close shots which I really like doing, bokeh quality, and sharpness/detail from a distance. Here’s the following lenses and bodies ...

Herschel Supply Co. Little America Mid-Volume Backpack and Koolertron Camera Insert Review

I originally learned about this bag and got the idea from John Barbiaux over at photolisticlife.com. You can see his article here. He’s got a wonderful blog and is very responsive to questions. I recommend giving him a read and a subscribe. It started when I was Googling for a camera backpack to use on ...

Sita’s senior photos in the rain — shot with a Fuji X-T2 and Fuji 50–140mm f/2.8

Taking senior photos in the Puget Sound during mid October can only mean one thing — rain. No point in rescheduling, no point in getting upset about it, and no point in trying to pay attention to the weather forecast. Plan for rain. That’s exactly what my clients and I talked about in the weeks ...

Fuji X-Pro2 — Day 2

Well, I discovered another area that Fuji cheaped out on the X-Pro2 — wi-fi. I tried transferring some of the images to my iPhone 6s Plus today, and using the full resolution photos, it was painfully slow to transfer the files. When I got home, I decided to look at the specs of the iPhone 6s Plus ...

Fuji 16–55mm f/2.8 Review — Part 2

Last week, I was fortunate enough to travel to Boston for a class related to my career. I planned my visit to arrive there a day early so I could sight see and take lots of photos. In the past, I’ve travelled with a lot of photo gear, but no more. I’ve learned my lesson, ...

Fuji 16–55mm f/2.8 Lens Review and Samples

My biggest complaint with the Fuji system has been it’s slow autofocus. Even with that, I still really enjoy using the Fuji system. The RAW files have a lot of latitude, the colors from the JPEGs are fantastic, and I love all of the controls on the X-T1. This last Saturday, Anya (our three year ...
