It’s been several weeks and we missed him too much, so we convinced our good pal, Dom, to visit us again as we sort out all the excitement from the Fuji camp.
We Shoot Fuji Podcast
Our friend, Marco Larousse, and his podcast co-host, Scott Bourne, made a special announcement on episode 17. If you’re a fan of the show, make sure to listen to the episode if you haven’t already for the full update. We wish them the best of luck as they move their show in a new direction with Photofocus.
Those Defining Photos
We followed up from episode 125 about the defining images we made in 2015 as well as those made from others which impacted us in some fashion throughout the year.
F is for Fuji
It’s Fuji time again. But this time, let’s blame Fujifilm directly for getting us all riled up. Haha. The rumours have been circulating for 3.5 years … true story. Then it was confirmed by Fujifilm they would be making some heavy announcements on January 15th as they celebrated their 5 years of their X Series lineup of bodies and lenses alike. Then they started to tease us with a countdown clock on the X-Pro 1 site, Finally the clock struck and the live stream event took place. 60 official X Photographers around the globe travelled to Tokyo to partake in the celebrations.
Please join us as we roundup the latest announcements from Fujifilm, the X-Pro 2, XF 100-400mm ƒ4.5-5.6 and more!
Make sure to check out all the goodness – news, updates, reviews, videos and more on twitter: #5YearsofXSeries We will also link up at the end of the post some of the hands on reviews that were coming in as the live event was going on.
