Fujifilm Comparison: X-T2 versus X-T20


Fuji's small and light X-T20 offers many of the features of the larger X-T2 and costs little more than half as much? What do you lose by saving cash and muscle power? David Bailey has put both cameras through an extensive test and gives you the facts you need to make the choice.....

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. 

Image Processing: Affinity Photo, Adobe, the way forward for Fuji fans


Following the recent changes in Adobe's marketing strategy and the introduction of Lightroom Classic CC, David takes a look at alternative processing software. He keeps a particular eye on the needs of Fuji shooters.

A taste of Cuba: September/October 2015


My wife and I had often talked about going to Cuba before it changed and this year we decided to take the plunge. The first impression was of having gone back in time. There were very few cars and people were either walking or waiting for buses or hitching lifts. There were very few shops and no sign whatsoever of any advertising. Now that the country is opening to outside influence, this remarkable taste of history cannot be long in the changing.

Fuji’s Kaizen firmware upgrade policy takes another leap forward


Fuji is again quick off the mark with firmware updates that make older models think they are the new kid on the block. It's a policy that pays off, says Bill....

Le Mans 24, an X-T1 and a brace of Fujinon zooms


Let's be honest, for a certain type of bloke it is a bucket-list thing. The glory days of Jaguar, racing through the night, the romance, the glamour, Steve McQueen and all that. When a good friend of mine, who has a place in France, suggested a long weekend including a day at the Le Mans 24 Hour race I jumped at the chance. I suppose I am what might be called a Passive Petrolhead; I am less interested than I used to be - the last time I went to a Grand Prix Mansel was still racing - but there is something about the demented howl of a V8 that sets the blood a-pumping.
