My Current Favorite Camera and Lens Combo

My favorite camera and lens combo used to be the Fuji X100s with the built in 23mm/2.0 lens. It is a stunning combo and is probably one of the most versatile setups. During our trip to Paris earlier this year, I made an interesting discovery: I really love shooting with the 35mm/1.4. Though I can’t…

Portraits for Asentiv South Africa

Still my Favourite Personal Travelling Kit

I received a phone call this afternoon by a gentleman, who found my blog post about the Fuji X100s and the TCL (Tele Converter Lens). He was keen buying the lens from me, should I be not interested any more. Well, I still love this setup for travelling. The X100s is still my favourite camera…
