FunLeader Caplens 18mm f8 Pro – Always Ready To Shoot

We all know the function and purpose of a camera rear body cap. It is to cover and protect the sensor when it is not in use. That’s simple. Some of us might even be aware of some interesting body caps such as Fujifilm XM-FL 24mm, 7artisans 18mm f6.3, or other pinhole body cap lenses.Continue reading “FunLeader Caplens 18mm f8 Pro – Always Ready To Shoot”

Fujifilm X-T5 – Photography First Again

My most anticipated camera is finally here. I skipped X-T4 not because it is not a worthy camera to upgrade. An improved battery and In-Body Image Stabilization are most welcome. But something I am unexpected back then is that it came with a fold-out fully articulated screen. Partly because I love how the 3-way tiltingContinue reading “Fujifilm X-T5 – Photography First Again”

TTArtisan AF 27mm f2.8 – The First

TTArtisan had been teasing us about their very first autofocus (AF) lens since September 2021.

X-H2 – The best of what APS-C can be (Part II)

4 months later, here comes the second flagship camera from Fujifilm, the X-H2.

Come toContinue reading “X-H2 – The best of what APS-C can be (Part II)”

TTArtisan 50mm f2 – A Tiny Portrait lens

I think TTArtisan has a soft spot for “50mm” and they released the 50mm f0.95 not too long ago. And now, TTArtisan had just released its third 50mm lens and it is the most compact 50mm lens TTArtisan ever made but it is the slowest in the lineup yet. But there is something different aboutContinue reading “TTArtisan 50mm f2 – A Tiny Portrait lens”

Laowa 10mm f4 Cookie – The Modestly Priced Compact Ultra-wide lens

Usually, for the same focal length, there are basically 2 paths for making it. The first one is to make with better optic, faster, brighter and premium price tagged lens. The second one is to make a smaller, compact and wisely priced lens. And this Laowa 10mm f4 is the later one. Laowa Lenses (alsoContinue reading “Laowa 10mm f4 Cookie – The Modestly Priced Compact Ultra-wide lens”
