Donato Chirulli from riflessifotografici started his own blog and the title reveals everything: “The Art Of Photography“. Photography is more than technical talk, pixel peeping and specs… it’s fun, it’s art, it’s passion. And it’s this passion that moved Donato Chirulli to start this blog.

Donato will post on his blog only the shots that he considers his most interesting ones and the best images he found on the web. Later, when the blog has a sufficient numbers of readers, he will choose weekly some shots of the readers that he feels worthy of being published.

Check out Donato’s new blog here.

Lens Turbo (focal reducer) to come for Fuji.

We got in contact with the Chinese company that just launched the new “Lens Turbo” adapter which is a focal reducer as the Speed Booster adapter but with a different design. They told us that nine new adapters will be launched this year:

PK, AI, EF, FD, MD, C/Y, Leica R, and M42 to Fuji X mount.

The image on top shows you their first adapter made for the NEX system. The company that makes the lens also makes the Mitakon 35mm 0.95 for X-mount (you can find them here on eBay).
