If you have the Fuji X-T1, it comes with a great little hot shoe flash – the Fuji EF-X8. The bad news, however, is that you can’t easily find a replacement to order online should something happen to the little EF-X8 flash. [Read more...]
Last week, I shared how one pro photographer switched from Nikon to Sony’s mirrorless cameras. But Sony isn’t the only mirrorless camera maker that is firing on all cylinders.
Photographer Lukas Gisbert-mora recently switched from Nikon’s DSLR system to Fuji’s X-Series with the new Fuji X-T1. He’s been a Nikon user for 15 years and after 3 months and 20,000 photos with the X-T1, he switched completely to the Fuji X-T1. [Read more...]

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?
