Dazaifu Japan | Fujifilm X-Pro2

I've been to this temple several times but this time it was a little special. My niece was celebrating Shichi Go San!

After spending a lot of time in Japan and getting use to the culture shock, I've finally begun to see things differently. It actually helps when shooting photography when everything doesn't feel new and interesting.When your overwhelmed by the excitement of traveling, it's hard to resist spamming photos of things that are new and cool, but that don't necessarily hold much meaning or character. But still, it happens, probably even with the best...

Finished testing memory card speeds in the Fujifilm X-T2. It's the most impressive camera I've ever tested.
I just finished doing the memory card speed tests with the Fujifilm X-T2 and I had to double check my results. The camera is smoking fast. Even faster than the X-Pro 2 and faster than any CF card I've tested to date. By a lot. With the UHS-II Lexar 2000x I'm able to get write speeds up to 156 MB/s with an average of 153.79 MB/s. Compared that to the Sony A6300 which has a max write speed of 33.19 MB/s and we're looking at some huge advantag...

Fujifilm X-Pro 2 Review

I've been shooting with the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 for a few weeks now and what a great camera. It's the first time I've shot with an APS-C camera and don't miss anything about full frame. It's pretty much the perfect mirrorless camera.

Check out my full review:

Summer Waves - Huntington Beach

We've been having some crazy summer weather. It was 100 degrees outside as I was driving south on the freeway, then about 10 minutes later, closer to Huntington, it started raining and the temperature dropped to 75 degrees. 
Luckily, this kind of weather usually produces some great sunsets. 

To give my Fuji XT1 a little break, I've switched to the Sony A7rII for awhile to see what the hype is all about. I have to say, I like it a lot better than the Sony A7r. The first generation camera felt like an extremely rough prototype that should have never been released. The Sony A7rII is much more refined. I like a lot, except it's as heavy as a DSLR.

See The Fuji X-T1 Destroy the Sony A7r In This Pixel-to-Pixel Showdown

I put the Sony A7r into APS-C crop mode to see how the Fuji X-T1 holds up against it. While the Sony A7r has been reviewed as one of the best sensors at the time of its release (soon to be replaced by the A7rII), it seems when comparing what the sensors could do based on surface area alone, the Fuji X-T1 destroys it.

A pixel to pixel showdown between the sensor of the Sony A7r and the Fuji X-T1. See the winner.

+Alik Griffin  I'm currently deciding on trying the XT1 myself because of the aforementioned stuff and mobility. It really is a tempting package.

Fuji really knows what they're doing with these sensors, and like you mentioned, if the next sensor is BSI, it might blow this one (and fullframes) out of the water completely – they just need to make people aware of what they have.

Latest review for the Fujifilm 27mm f2.8 pancake lens

One of my favorite lenses for the Fujifilm X-Pro 2. It's sharp, small, and produces some nearly flawless IQ.
I love this thing!

#Fujifilm #X-Pro2 #X-T2 #StreetPhotography
The Fujinon 27mm f2.8 pancake lens is one of Fujifilm's smallest and lightest lenses and is a perfect fit for the photographer looking for something compact and low profile for street shooting or travel. The 27mm produces an field of view with the 35mm equivalent of 41mm. From overall image quality to the mechanical build, this lens is a very solid lens. Optically it can produce some amazing images while never holding you back with any major f...

Fujifilm XT2 Review
I think Fujifilm might have just made the perfect camera.

Switching over from the A7r II for shooting landscapes, I don't really feel like I'm leaving anything behind other than print resolution. DR and ISO performance has been fantastic and it's been so nice to lighten up my bag with smaller lenses and a lighter body.

Check out the review.

The Specs . . . 4k video, a 24 megapixel sensor, two-way tilt screen, dual UHS-II memory card slots, boost performance of 14fps with a battery grip. Did Fujifilm just make the best APS-C camera on the market?

Tongva Park - Sony A7r II

This is a little spot in Santa Monica that's relatively new and a place I've been looking forward to shooting. I've passed through this park several times now when on my way to shoot the Santa Monica Pier. (a place I like to test gear for reviews and what not) I finally brought the gear to shoot this structure.

I used an ultra wide 15mm Voigtlander Heliar III lens with my Sony A7r II. Probably one of the best compact ultra wide lenses you can buy. I love it, and the stars you get on the lights with that lens are amazing.

Dockweiler Sunset

We've been having some strange weather this summer in Los Angeles giving us some nice sunsets. This one was at my usually surf spot. The only beach in Los Angeles that for some reason isn't packed with people and is still a great place to surf. Although, I'm not sure how polluted the water is.

The waves were great there this morning and there was only one other person out. Even a few dolphins came and joined us pretending to be sharks.

I tell you what, when a dolphin's fin aiming right towards you pops out of the water only a few meters away, your heart stops every time. I've been surfing almost twenty years and they still get me with that. 

I shot this with my Fuji X-T1 and the Voigtlander 15mm Heliar III
