The Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel camera is big, but how big is compared to other cameras with integrated battery grip, the Nikon D5 and the Canon 1Dx MK II?
It’s interesting that the Fujifilm GFX is being used to advertise the new Billingham Hadley Pro 2020 camera bags in their announcement. In the past, Billingham used Leica cameras to advertise their bags, but the release of the GFX made it harder for Leica fans to justify their purchase. Maybe this is a sign of things to come or maybe Billingham and Leica’s relations have soured. It sure would be nice if Billingham released a Fujifilm branded bag for the GFX like they did for the Leica M.
Adobe continues to address consumers complaints about their photography software running slower than competitors, but not their lack of stand-alone pricing. While it’s good that they continue to make their product better even as they vacuum money out of our wallets monthly it still isn’t addressing consumers largest complaint. The press release for this software leaked yesterday, but today is when the update went live and it does seem to be a little quicker than before, but I am dealing with very large files out of the GFX100.
The Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8 has been popular among fans of compact mirrorless cameras, but the lens has a few issues according to lens tips that are similar to the controversial Fujinon XF18mm f/2.0 R. I do not know many that would defend or purchase the XF18mm, but a few do. I imagine many more will buy the XF16mm f/2.8, especially if they are intereted in the excilent XF16mm f/1.4.

Godox has become very popular among Fujifilm photographers and the Godox V1, in particular, is of interest to many because it is a low-cost alternative to the Profoto A1 and it is available for Fujifilm cameras without a trigger. The above demo does a decent job of demonstrating one difference between a round head flash vs a square head, but there is still debate about if the difference matters. At least Godox is doing a good job of keeping up with Profoto’s tech at a reasonable price. More options for Fujifilm cameras is always appreciated.
I demoed a NiSi filter kit for a little after I purchased my LEE setup and I was very impressed with its premium build quality and glass filters. The leather case that housed it all was one of the nicest out, but it was a little on the heavy side and not very functional. Well, now it looks like my small gripes about their system have been addressed with the new NiSi V6 Filter Kit III.
