FUJI X-E2: Bob’s Quick Review!

I’ve had the Fuji X-E1 camera now for a while and Don has had the Fuji X-100S.  Both great cameras and fun to use!  The Fuji X100S has the 2nd version of Fuji’s X-Trans sensor and it has shown itself to be a sensor that shows off the capabilities of Fuji’s sharp lenses quite well by providing very sharp images.  The Fuji X-E2 has now been released so I...

THINKING IN BLACK & WHITE

I LOVE photography.  Been taking photos for a long time (dare I say since 1971….yikes!).  I’ve always said that if you’re gonna shoot in color make the image colorful.  In the old days I used Kodachrome 25 and Velvia: I wanted COLOR!  Today, with digital photography I mostly use Lightroom 4 (LR4) and make sure I’ve got good well defined properly...
