Fujifilm X-T1 | Initial Impressions & Comparisons | Dubai, UAE.

Yesterday, I received a SAMPLE unit of the Fujifilm X-T1 + VG-XT1 Battery Grip from Fujifilm Middle East.  This is probably the most anticipated camera in the mirrorless world.  Ever since the rumors and leaked photos came out, it created quite a buzz in the photography communities around the world. Feature Highlights: 16.3 MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor + EXR II Processor 0.77x EVF magnifcation (Largest in its class) with 54 fps refresh rate First camera to support the UHS-II […]

Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 Lens |Unboxing Photos | Dubai, UAE.

This lens has been pretty much the missing link from the entire X-Series lens line up.  Fujifilm Middle East is kind enough to send me one unit for testing. Yay!! The 56mm f1.2 which is 85mm equivalent on full frame cameras is the classic “Portrait lens” focal length.  The build quality is on par with the rest of the XF X-Series lens and other world class lenses from Zeiss and Canon L series lenses. I will be posting my initial […]

Fujifilm X-E2 : First Impressions (Part 1) | Dubai, UAE.

I’ve had the X-E2 for about two days now (as of this writing) – Fujifilm Middle East gave me a pre-production unit and asked me if I want to try it out and see how it performs;  Well, being a photographer, there’s nothing better than trying out new gear 🙂   Hardware Changes Like a kid getting a new toy, first things first… Fiddling time.  Being a gadget geek, I checked all the hardware changes side by side with the […]

Wacom Cintiq 13HD | First Impressions & Review Part 1 | Dubai, UAE.

I have been dreaming of a Cintiq tablet for a long time.  My main problem is the cost; I cannot justify the cost of a 22 or 24 inches model although they are probably really good, they are out of my budget.  I am not a retoucher or graphic artist by profession… so, splurging thousands of dollars doesn’t sound like a good investment for someone like me.   Although, I do like using Photoshop and I retouch pretty much all my photos, […]

Fujifilm X100S | Dubai, UAE.

There you go… X100s chillin’ in my bag 🙂 I am currently reviewing the new Fujifilm X100s.  I really love Fuji cameras and always a fan of its JPEG files.  Also, the design is just simply drop dead gorgeous.  While others doesn’t mind the looks of a camera, well… I do! If you haven’t read my Fuji X100 review, here it is:  http://bit.ly/ZuwW0i And for the XPro1, here you go: Part 1 : http://bit.ly/Y58fdS Part 2: http://bit.ly/YTGPGU I will be […]

Canon EOS 5D Mark III (Dubai, UAE.)

Finally, the camera I have been waiting for is OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED!  I have been dying to upgrade to a full frame camera for almost a year now.  I was holding on to my 7D since I found that 5D Mark II’s auto focus to be a let down.   It was announced to be shipping end of this month (first week of April 2012), so I am expecting around mid April for it to be available in Dubai, UAE.  I will […]
