Photokina Will Take Place Every Year Starting From 2018!

Share

Good news everybody!

Starting from 2018, the Photokina will take place every year (currently it’s every 2 years). The imaging world is changing quickly, and so it’s a good thing that the most important photography fair, the Photokina, keeps up with the rapidly innovating market by offering yearly events.

However, it will be shorter (from Wednesday to Saturday).

I have been to Photokina 2016, and it was definitely my “blogger-photographer highlight” of 2016 (but I had also bad moments, as you can read here).

Sadly, my school principal didn’t allow me more than 2 days off, so I was stressed like a penguin at the equator to run around and check out all the photographic goodness in such a shot time… but it was worth everything! In fact, I had serious problems to teach again, after these wonderful 2 days.

I want to be there also in 2018… again anonymous… but if somebody organizes a Fuji photowalk, I’ll be there.

I will also pass you the email of my principal, so you can Spam her and tell her you won’t stop it, until I get all days off for photokina :)

​This brief article is to share my Fuji X-T2 settings for wedding photography and I hope you’ll find it useful.

I switched from Canon to Fuji for my wedding work because I was looking for a lighter, more portable alternative to my DSLR’s that wouldn’t wear me and my back out during the marathons that have become wedding shoots. Weight was becoming a serious issue for me with my Canons and thankfully this last generation Fuji APS-C X-Trans sensor seems to perform well enough in terms of resolution, noise (lack of), latitude and high ISO capabilities to output excellent results in a light and compact package: small sensor means small lenses and all that comes with it. Also, with this last iteration Fuji X cameras have gotten a lot better in terms of controls (exposure compensation dial and focus point selection joystick above all), features (double memory slot) and software and have become great tools suitable for professional use during weddings.

What happened then is, I switched for the size and weight and got hooked by the shooting experience. These Fujis are really fun to use and – once you get used to them – they are also practical and quite functional. These cameras are very versatile and offer a lot room for customization. Depending on your style of shooting and type of photography, there’s a lot to work on as far as setting up the cameras to get them to perform in a way that is suitable to you, your work flow and the results you’re after.

Fujifilm X100F
BHphoto, Adorama, AmazonUS

Ok, I’ll admit it… sometimes I wake up, in the middle of the night, after having had a crazy dream. I dream I’m selling all my X-gear and buy the X100F with TCL and WCL… and that’s it.

And you know what? The more I think about it, the more I like this idea. I guess that, at this stage, it’s only the Fujifilm X-E3 that keeps from doing the switch to the X100F.

The X100F with TCL/WCL would be such a wonderful and light mini system… so should I switch? And which color? I’d get it in silver. I think that rangefinder cameras with OVF look better in silver, whereas those with EVF only (like the X-E line) look better in black.

And now, after this confession… a bunch of X100F links :)
