I would like to thank everyone for visiting this blog in 2012 and look forward seeing you guys in 2013!
2012 was a very exciting year for photographers and video shooters and even if we don’t have the latest lens or camera body in our bag, we have very few excuses for not taking pictures or shooting video.

Fuji created quite a buzz when they introduced the X100 back in September 2010.
With the X Pro1 in 2012 the buzz continued. Fuji showed the camera industry that they have balls and introduced rangefinder inspired cameras because deep down and high up in the company were human beings who liked photography, not just robots behind spreadsheets looking to maximize profits.

Carlos, a very interesting character, 75% Aztec
The best camera is the one that’s with you. Shot with the Fuji X-E1 and the Nikon 50mm f1.8 G wide open, in available light. I love shooting with this lens, it acts like a 75mm on the X-E1 and is very sharp and light. Perfect balance, photos of the camera with the lens attached after the break
