Good ol’ Canadian 

We had the pleasure of chatting with Vancouver-based Fujifilm X-Photographer photographer and educator, Ian MacDonald. Ian has such an interesting background that led him to the world of photography and we were thrilled he was willing to share his photography journey with us. Please join us as we sit down for a fascinating, candid and wonderful conversation with this lovely chap on how he approaches people, his work, art, and more!

Coming Home

Nope, it’s not some emotional photography story that will tear at your heartstrings. Rather, Mac just realized the right inventory management/post processor was in right front of him all along. Cya later, Capture One.

F-F-Fuji. 

The long anticipated Fujifilm X-T2 was announced and though it’s not even available in stores yet, photographers are jumping at it. Does it have what it takes to be Fuji’s best mirrorless body yet? We quickly dish about the latest body to hit the scene and quite possibly, your wallet.

Composite, You Say?

Mac listened to a podcast which got his camera straps all tied up in a knot and we thought we’d talk about composites and in the process, revisiting landscapes and dare we say it, wildlife? Join us as we discuss this topic and wonder what responsibility the photographer has to their viewing audience when it comes to our work.

Join the Convo

Is the Fuji X-T2 on your radar? If not, is there another brand and/or body you’ve been waiting to add to your lineup? Which one? What are your thoughts about composite photography, especially with landscapes and wildlife? Do you feel the photographer should be honest upfront with how the image was made/processed? We’d love to hear your thoughts! You can find us Bookface and Twitter! You can also subscribe free via iTunes and Stitcher.

Thanks as always for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

Episode 126 »» Two Guys, a Girl and Fuji, Mac's 2015 defining photograph

Mac’s 2015 defining photograph.

He’s Baaaaaack

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:  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.

Are you a current X shooter? If so, what do you think of the announcement and latest soon-to-be released gear? Did the X-Pro 2 or one of the other bodies grab your attention? If you’re not sporting the Fuji brand now, are you considering making the switch? What about other mirrorless brands – which ones are on your radar if at all? We’d still love to hear about your defining photographs and/or moments of 2015. You can find us on here on the blog, BookFace or Twitter. Of course you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher.

Thanks again to Dominick for joining us again tonight. Please make sure to check out his work on Flickr and 500px!

Thanks for tuning in and making it this far in this Fuji-heavy episode. Much appreciated as always!

Cheers, y’all!

Shutter Time podcast, Episode 120 »» Stories with Wally (Classic Camera Exchange). We interview Wally from Classic Camera Exchange in Edmonton and chat about Fuji's latest announcement.

Fuji @ PhotoPlus NYC 

As we previously discussed in episode 118, an announcement was expected from the Fuji camp for a new lens and TC. Fujifilm has since officially announced said new lens and 1.4x teleconverter. One of the fujirumors.com users is at PhotoPlus and had a chance to get a hands on perspective of the two new items. Check out the quick report!

Story Time with an Edmonton Fan Favourite

84 year old Wally Franiel from Classic Camera Exchange in Edmonton, Alberta, is a living legend for analog photographers, some could say. Mac dropped by the unique shop last week for a chat with a man who has seen it all. We definitely encourage you to listen to the bonus story-time moment between Wally and Mac at the end of the show. Enjoy the interview!

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.

Updated!

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.
