Recently, an 8-month old SanDisk Extreme Pro external SSD drive failed here at…

Since my first SLR film camera, a Minolta X700 purchased on a trip to Germany in 1984, I fell in love with the ease of control offered by shooting in aperture priority mode. In all the cameras since then, save my large format 4×5 cameras, or panoramic medium format cameras, I have always used aperture…

I recently had an opportunity to work with a preproduction sample of the new Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.4 R LM WR, thanks to our local Fujifilm sales rep. This new lens could be considered a replacement for the venerable XF 35mm f/1.4 R, the original fast “normal” prime from back when the X-Pro1 first came…
