Flash Metz M400 for Fujifilm

Metz mecablitz M400

So there are options for a flash on a Fuji with TTL, after all. Not yet available, but Metz just announced their new line of flashes at Photokina. They don't have a price yet, but if it's going to be similar to their current models, it should…

Fujifilm X-T2 battery life

Every reviewer out there complains about the poor battery life on a mirrorless camera. I think by now, they should stop comparing it with a DSLR, acknowledge that mirrorless uses much more battery than a DSLR and perhaps just compare  battery…

Auto Iso on Fujifilm X-T2

I saw a comment made by one of the prominent YouTube reviewer about the Fujifilm X-T2 auto Iso options. On a list of Pros and Cons they listed the 3 Auto Iso options as a Con, stating that it was unnecessarily complicated. Hm... Whatever do…

Fujifilm cashback on X-Pro2 and selected lenses

I have to say, I was lucky when 2 weeks ago my online store cancelled my orders and refunded the money citing lack of stock of the X-T2 camera. At the time I ordered all the lenses that I wanted as well, but I cancelled the entire order. How…

Nissin i40 compatibility issues and first impressions of CameraSky

It's been confirmed by a number of people that TTL no longer works with Nissin i40 and the new X-T2. Fuji most definitely changed their ttl protocol and their best TTL flash, a third party offering no longer works. No word yet if the Meike…

Ordered new Fujifilm gear

I ordered a Fujifilm X-T2 with 18-55mm kit lens last night and hoping to get my hands on it before the weekend. Possible, but I am not holding my breath. I opted for the 18-55, rather than the 18-135, which I was thinking of simply because that…

Looks like Fujifilm has no viable flash system – For now

My Nissin i40 is still in transit, but I already know that it will not work with my new camera. That is a very disappointing blow. Fuji has tweaked their ttl code which renders the i40 pretty much useless. It no longer works in TTL mode. Yes,…

Why I want to switch from Canon to Fujifilm – Gear

Ever since I got the X-E1 with it's wonderful retro look I pictured myself shooting with that camera for my work. Wouldn't it be great to take pictures like we used to? And I loved the colours that came straight out of the x-e1 without any retouching.…

Pulled the trigger on the switch

I did it. I'm switching from Canon to Fuji. Well, not entirely, I only ordered a few little things, a couple of cheap lenses, a flash unit and some accessories. The big guns are still in the cart at DWI. Btw, I'm testing 2 new suppliers of grey…
Online shopping postage insurance

Is it useful to get postage insurance from an online store

I had a rather unpleasant experience with a new online store that I was testing for my camera gear. I bought about 600$ worth of gear from them, a couple of lenses; I just wanted to know their delivery time and their customer service. I purchased…
