CAMERA REVIEWS


FUJIFILM X-T2 - LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEW

I've been using the Fuji X-T2 for about 6 or 7 months now after upgrading from an X-T1, and this is very untechnical review of how good a landscape camera it is. In the time I've had it, I've taken it with my to Tuscany and on a camping trip to Iceland, as well as shooting landscapes with it on the coast of Portugal, my home.

FUJIFILM X-T20 - A PRACTlCAL COMPARISON WITH THE X-T2

A video review of the X-T20 looking at the similarities and differences with Fuji's flagship X-T2, and what I like about the camera.

FUJIFILM X-H1 - A PRACTICAL COMPARISON WITH THE X-T2

I borrowed the Fujifilm X-H1 last month and spent a week shooting with it in Tuscany comparing it with the X-T2, my usual landscape camera. This isn't an in-depth review of all the cameras specifications and features, rather I focused on the practical differences I noticed between the two cameras while using them in the field.

FUJIFILM X-E3 - A PRACTICAL COMPARISON WITH THE X-T20

I borrowed the Fujifilm X-E3 and took it to snowy Norway to compare it with the X-T20, my usual carry-around, video and back up camera. 

LAOWA 9MM f2.8 - A PRACTICAL REVIEW

Here's a quick, and very unscientific, review of the Laowa 9mm f2.8 lens. I've been using one with my X-T2 for about a month now and this review is based on my experience in the field shooting landscapes.

SWITCHING TO FUJI FROM NIKON FULL FRAME

I've been using the Fuji X system now for a little over two years after switching from a full frame Nikon kit. One of the questions I get asked most often is about making the switch, and the blog that I wrote for my website 2 years ago is still one of my most read articles, so I thought it was time I made an actual video about why I switched and what I felt about it.

FUJIFILM GFX 50S LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEW

I spent a week with the Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format putting it through it's paces shooting landscapes in Tuscany and Cinque Terre, Italy.


DRONE VIDEOS


DJI MAVIC 2 PRO - REVIEW & BEST SETTINGS

I've been using the Mavic 2 Pro for a couple of months now and this video covers my thoughts about how it compares to the previous Mavic Pro, and what settings I've found work for getting the absolute best out the camera's 1" sensor

DJI MAVIC PRO 6 MONTH REVIEW

Before I got hold of the DJI Mavic back in late January I'd never flown a drone before. I was also completely new to shooting video and bought the Mavic because I wanted to start putting together short films alongside my landscape photography.

BEST SETTINGS CAMERA & GIMBAL FOR MAVIC PRO

I've had the Mavic Pro for about 3 months now and I'm still learning how to get the best out of it. The sensitive default gimbal settings in particular make it hard to get cinematic footage, and the camera needs a little tweaking to get the most out of it.

LEARNING TO FLY A DRONE PART 2:  STILL IMAGE QUALITY

Since I got hold of the DJI Mavic Pro last month I've been slowly trying to get to grips with flying and filming with drones  so I decided to experiment with the RAW images on the Mavic and create a video review while I was doing it.

LEARNING TO FLY A DRONE WITH THE DJI MAVIC PRO

I recently bought a DJI Mavic drone. I've never used a drone before but was interested to learn and see how easy it was, as well as seeing what kind of footage I'd be able to get with such a small portable drone.

Here's my second attempt at cutting together a video...This is a quick film I made when I went to the west coast of Portugal and attempted to shoot the Milky Way with the new Fuji X-T2. 

LISBON FROM THE AIR

This is just a very short film I cut together with drone footage (from the DJI Mavic Pro) when I was out shooting a street photography video for Fuji X Passion. This was just after I'd bought the drone and was still learning how to fly it and get the best out of the settings.
