Fuji announced its new GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR lens last week while I was at NAB. I was happy to find they had a fully functional model at the show and I was able to spend a few minutes with it. [Read more…]
According to Lomography anyway, today April 12, 2017 is the fifth annual film photography day in Lomography Gallery and Embassy Stores around the world. If you’re in NYC, there’s a Sacred NYC Tattoo Party Pop-up happening at the Lomography Gallery Store on 8th Street.
If you’re not near a Lomography Gallery or Embassy Store, it’s still a good excuse to dust off your film camera and shoot a couple rolls or sheets. [Read more…]
Fuji previously showed off the new GFX 50S medium format camera and new lenses back at Photokina 2016.

It’s a sad day folks. As I have waded back into film photography over the past year, there is one film that I’ve really grown attached to: Fujifilm’s FP-100C.
Today, however, Fujifilm announced the end of production for FP-100C. It is the last peel-apart film on the market. As such, it was the only film available for many Polaroid Land Cameras and medium format backs since Polaroid has long ago stopped making peel apart film. [Read more…]
