It’s not Fuji time

Today we had a chat on the new DXO One camera… which to Sid it looks like a stamp.  Also a new Panasonic camera, which allows to choose focus points after the picture is taken.  What will they think of next :)

Is there always a picture?

We try to answer a question: “is there always an image to be made?”, and we fail miserably.  Lets put it this one, at the end of the show we both switch our views, and end up more confused.

Join the Convo

Do you think there is always an image to be made?  No matter the conditions, or circumstances?  Let us know, either in comments or our bookface or twitter.

Thanks as always for tuning in, folks!

Cheers, y’all!

It’s Fuji Time

Firmware 4.0 has been released for the Fujifilm X-T1 / Graphite X-T1 and Mac gives us a rundown of the updates and how it’s improved the camera.

Self Imposed Restrictions and Choices

It’s super easy to continue along with our photography without truly being aware of the choices we make with all aspects of our craft. What’s often easier to slip by us are the restrictions we impose on ourself – often without realizing it. A quick article and a couple of chats with some listeners inspired us to take extend the convo by hitting up our mics. Please have a listen and see if you recognize yourself in the chat and what we as photographers can do to make sure we are doing right by ourselves and ultimately, our photography. I may or may not feel exposed after this one … doh!

Photographic Detachment?

An article from a pro photographer spotted on Twitter caught our attention. He was defending his dedication to his craft, attempting to buck the myth photography was not about luck when it comes to seeking out his subject, nailing the image and capturing something beautiful.

From what I remember – I didn’t save the article or favourite the tweet, my bad – he was fed up with being asked by folks, including other photographers, what kind of camera he had because it must be the reason he took such a lovely photo. We decided to take to the mics and see if we can figure this one out.

Ansel, We Have A Problem

As photographers, are we broken? Is our industry broken beyond repair? How can we turn the tables on the industry and get back to appreciating the many photographs which were made from the photographer’s talent, skill and time?

Join the Convo

Have we become so insensitive to photography we are quick to judge those making images, assuming the greatest and latest gear is solely or at least mainly responsible? What are your thoughts? Please chime in! You can find us on Bookface and Twitter. Of course you can also subscribe for free via iTunes or Stitcher!

Thanks for tuning in, folks.

Cheers, y’all!

The F Word

There are moments where Fuji chat has its place and episode 109 is one of them. Given our recent fanboy episode, we are well aware it’s probably insane to talk about a particular brand, but here we are. We are a fan of brands who keep the photo faith by listening to their customers and right now, for the most part, Fuji is fitting the bill. But lately so is Canon to some degree and perhaps we shall chat about them and other brands in our next gear-themed show.


More updates / releases have come out of the Fuji camp, so please join us as we talk about the latest firmware and some fresh gear!

X Mount Lens Roadmap 

There are two roadmaps floating around right now. The official roadmap as found on the Fujifilm sites, updated February 2015 and then the latest to be posted by several websites, including Fuji Rumors. Below is the official one. We’ll post the updated May / June 2015 roadmap once it’s available on Fuji’s site.
