Photokina – Days 2 & 3

At one point in time, Fuji and Kodak were major competitors.  We all know what happened to Kodak.  Fuji on the other hand, did something we were all taught to do but sometimes forget: they listened.  They listened to their customers, they got to know the photography business and they allowed some very passionate and creative people to create a very innovative camera system that over the last 4 years has been maturing at an unparalleled pace

Beyond 4K video recording, the LX100 looks to be fast too, with a burst mode of 11fps. It uses the same contrast AF sensor that’s found in the GH4 which, along with the company’s Depth from Defocus technology, gives the LX100 the ability to lock AF in .14 seconds and track AF during 5fps burst shooting. Native ISO ranges from 200-25,600 and can be pushed down to 100.

Why Medium Format Digital?

Why Medium Format Digital?

Over the past 18 months I have found myself coming back from my overseas travels with an eagerness to get to my office / studio to process and print some of these files at 30×40” just to see how they look. These prints remind me of when I was learning how to print in the darkroom, watching in awe, as a print would come to life in front of my eyes. I feel that same sense of excitement when I see these prints coming off my wide format Canon printer. The immense sense of accomplishment and pride that I feel makes all of the effort worthwhile.
