The Fujifilm X-E2- Beyond the Manual

The Fujifilm X-E2: Beyond the Manual is a new ebook from photographer Rico Pfirstlinger.

“The Fujifim X-E2: Beyond the Manual provides experience-based information and insights for owners of the Fujifilm X-E2 mirrorless system camera. Fuji X-Pert series author Rico Pfirstinger teaches little-known capabilities of the X-E2 that he’s discovered through several months of in-depth research. This book focuses on insights that you won’t find in the manual, skipping tedious explanations of basic camera functions and operations. Instead, Rico cuts to the chase and provides readers with a plethora of tips and practical instructions that will enable them to fully explore the capabilities of the X-E2.”

The Fujifilm X-E2: Beyond the manual retails for $16.95; however, it is currently available as a Kindle Edition for $9.99 on Amazon.com.

Crop or Crap: A Rational Dissection of the Full Frame vs. APS-C Argument

Zack Arias is back again with another nail-meets-head analysis of our world or photography today. This time around, he’s addressing the incessant argument of APS-C vs. full frame cameras.

Zack is a huge proponent of Fuji’s new X-Series cameras and lenses. Lately, he’s been all about the X-T1, which has received nothing but rave reviews since it was released.

Fuji, in general, has been knocking it out of the park with its entire APS-C line of X-Series cameras. And, it seems like each one is getting better. Expect to see more from Fuji at Photokina in September.

Likewise, there are plenty of solid APS-C and Micro Four Thirds cameras from Sony, Panasonic, Olympus and so on. If APS-C floats your boat, then by all means climb aboard. I think Zack’s overall points are well made. It really boils down to what tool works for you and your needs.

I am frequently asked about recommendations for cameras by a variety of users. Just in the past month in one-on-one conversations, I’ve recommended Sony APS-C and full frame, Canon’s 6D and 70D, Panasonic GH4, GoPro and Sony RX100 models to different people based on their skill levels and intended uses.

What’s your take on the APS-C vs. Full Frame argument?
