Late to the Fuji X-E2 & 23mm f1...

Published January 27th, 2014

I finally got my hands on the X-E2 & the soon-to-be legendary XF 23mm 1.4 lens. Everything said about this combo in reviews and blogs are true. I bought it just one day before the Thaipusam in Singapore. Didn't have time to find out what was new so I had to rely on my familiarity with the X-E1. Haven't had enough time with it but so far it's an unbeatable combination for street and travel photography.

Here are some pictures from that day and the rest in this set - http://500px.com/geraldgay/sets/thaipusam_singapore

Using the 14, 18-55, 55-200 as travel kit in Si...

Published August 24th, 2013

For a travel kit these 3 lenses plus the 18 and 35 (as an extended kit) makes this Fuji combo the ideal lightweight and versatile (20mm - 300mm FF equivalent) bag available.

Looking back, if only all my trips had been with such a light bag (XP1 & XE1 bodies) the enjoyment and output might have been much greater.

Recent Photos with the Fuji 14mm & 55-200mm lenses

Published June 22nd, 2013

I have to say that the 55-200mm is just an incredible lens.

Got it 2 weeks ago and it is plenty sharp and very well-made. The OIS is better than I could imagine. An easy lens to work with...a little stiff on the zoom but you'll get used to it. Focus is more than adequate for me. It doesn't hunt like even Canon zooms are prone to do. It isn't snappy but it locks on pretty well.

The earlier released 14mm is also a fantastic lens and will be perfect for all kinds of travel and landscape work.

Now my travel bag is complete with the 14, 35, 18-55, 55-200 zooms. Took a long time Fuji...you really made us wait but it's all good now.

A Year's Worth of X-Pro 1 Photography

Published May 17th, 2013

It's been a little over a year since Fuji released the X-Pro 1 - a Leica for the rest of us.

It paid homage to the great rangefinder type cameras of yesteryears.

Although digital, it was the first camera that handled like it was a film camera with files that were incredibly film-like.

The familiar manual, mechanical-like controls were a delight for those who began with pre-autofocus film cameras.

The X-Pro 1's output was also unexpected. The colour reproduction is so true to life that it amazes me even today.

The camera comes with simulations of Fuji's great films like Velvia, Provia, Astia, colour negative & b/w.

With the X-E1 as a second body and just waiting for the 55-300mm zoom to come, my X bag will be all set for more great photography.

Tripping Melbourne

Published December 10th, 2012

I have had the Fuji X-Pro 1 and the 18mm, 35mm & 60mm lenses since March this year but most of that time was spent in Cambodia.

Last month I was back in Melbourne, Australia and had the chance to shoot with the X-Pro 1 in a more modern, urban setting.

All of these photos were taken with the 18mm and it captured Melbourne's summer light, colour and vibrance beautifully.

The 18mm is my walkaround lens and because it's so versatile i always leave the rest of the kit at home.
