Fuji X-T2 Portraits with the XF 56mm APD in Dumbo


Fuji X-T2 Portraits with the XF 56mm APD in Dumbo:

I hurt my back over the weekend, (slept the wrong way, and pinched a nerve), which plain out sucks not only because it obviously hurts but also because I can’t really go out to take pics with all the cool stuff I’m currently reviewing, so I thought I’d post some photos that I took with my Fuji X-T2 and my XF 56mm APD right before I pinched my nerve :).  I’m still trying out my X-T2, and so far, I love it even more :).  It’s just a plain out awesome camera because it does so many things so well.  If you want more info, check out my review.  It was one of the longest reviews I’ve ever wrote.  Anyway, I’m finding every opportunity to use it, and when one of my friends came over to visit last weekend, I thought it would be a great time to shoot some portraits.

Sigma sd Quattro Mirrorless Camera Review


Sigma sd Quattro Mirrorless Camera Review:

I have a confession: I review a lot of different cameras but the Sigma sd Quattro has been one camera that I’ve particularly had my eye on for quite some time.  The reason for this is in many ways, it really stands out from the rest of the mirrorless world.  Not only does it have, shall we say, unique aesthetics, it also has Sigma’s Foveon sensor technology.  Plus, at $799, the price is quite reasonable when compared to the competition.  They’ll even throw in a 30mm f1.4 lens in a kit for $999.  Of course, like many other Sigma cameras, the sd Quattro also comes with its fair share of quirks.  In many ways, you’ll really have to work for your image but in the end, it is most definitely worth it.

Sigma sd Quattro Review Coming Today!


 Sigma sd Quattro Review Coming Today:

Hey everyone!  I hope all of you had a great weekend.  Here’s just a quick update: I am posting my Sigma sd Quattro review today, and it has plenty of images to accompany it.  It also has 100% crops, so you can see all the little details that this camera can retrieve.  I’ll tell you this much; this is one unique camera but I’m sure many of you already know that :).  It also has its quirks but truthfully, this is one of my favorite cameras that I’ve reviewed so far.  You’ll see what I mean in the review.  The above picture is a sample taken with the Sigma sd Quattro.  As you can see, it produces very sharp images!

Here’s some stuff that’s coming next: I will be writing up a review for the new Fuji XF 23mm f2 R WR lens.  I also thought it would be great to test some of the older lenses on the X-T2, so I will be reviewing the XF 50-140mm f2.8 as well.  This should be a really fun lens to use on the X-T2 :).  For Leica users, there will be a fantastic guest post up about London Fashion Week using an M 240 and a 50mm Noctilux 0.95!  I’m also finishing up a review of a classic: the 35mm Summicron v4 or as some refer to it as “the Bokeh King”.

So, stay tuned!  The sd Quattro review will be up in a few hours.  Thanks for stopping by!
