Leica CL: A reluctant goodbye but it’s now time to look to the future

Leica's APS-C range is dead. The CL and TL are no more. So is it time to stop mourning and look to the future? Mike thinks so...

Fujifilm SQ10 Instax: An instant/digital hybrid that makes sense


The new Instax Square digital hybrid allows you to take and modify your photos before printing. And it's not just a one-off shot as is the case with most instant cameras to date....

Fuji X-E1: Getting a grip on the camera


Is the new Thumbs Up grip a better option for the Fuji X-E1 than Fuji's own rather bulky handgrip?

APS-C cameras: The world keeps on turning after the death of the Leica CL

Leica has left the APS-C camera market with the discontinuation of the CL. But the assumption that a sensor size between Micro Four Thirds and full-frame has not future proved wrong.

Fuji X System: Full analysis of what’s available to X-Fans


Since Fuji showed its first X System camera a Photokina in September 2010, the company has worked diligently at expanding the options open to photographers. That first X was the X100, a 35mm-equivalent fixed lens camera that has become a firm favourite with street photographers in particular. It is now on its third iteration, the X100T.

Fuji X-Pro 3 with hidden back screen

What do you think of Fuji's new XPro 3 with its novel rear info screen? I think it will appeal to Fuji buyers who tend to be more conservative and traditional. It's almost as interesting as the Leica M10-D!

First Impressions: Fuji X-T1 and 18-55mm Fujinon, Leica lenses


A sparkling new Fuji X-T1 and the rather good 18-55 kit lens has arrived for review. I am no stranger to the Fuji X series, having used the X-Pro 1, X-E1, X100 and X100S, but the X-T1 with its retro SLR styling and a button or dial for everything has the makings of the best version yet. Almost any adjustment you need to make on this camera can be done directly, either from the top dials or the five dedicated function buttons. 

Review: Fujinon XF35 f/2.0 WR lens and a glance back at the XF27


As anyone who has read my scribbles for any length of time knows, I come from a long background of using Leica M cameras and lenses and, rightly or wrongly, they remain to this day my yardstick when evaluating new equipment, particularly the Fuji X line. In Leica terms, therefore, if the original and now slightly venerable Fujinon XF35mm f/1.4 R plays in Summilux territory, in aperture terms at least, then with the new f/2.0 Fuji is planting its flag firmly on the Summicron's doorstep.
