Photographing my first Wedding: The Gear I Bought, The Fujifilm X-T4 Dilemma and is My Friendship at Risk?

Share

Back in mid January, I wrote this article, where I told you that my best friend asked me to photograph his wedding.

Well, actually not his entire wedding.

There is an official photographer, but he will stay only until dinner. He will then leave, and my friend asked me if I can cover it from dinner onwards.

So I asked you…

… in order to be ready for the shoot, any tips and tricks, also from a gear point of view?

The article received a massive response with over 230 comments.

I did read them all, but was not able to reply to all of them, as then all the mega buzz started for the X100V announcement and the Fujifilm X-T4 rumors. Not to talk that January is always extremely busy also at school, and now in February I started a video project, which takes lots of time, too.

So I thought I post one big response article now, that touches three main points: the gear, how I should relate with the official photographer and something that came unexpected for me: the risk to destroy my friendship.

Let’s go in order:

So What, Happy or Not about the Fujifilm X-T4 Flippy Screen? The Final Answer in this Survey!

Share

I must admit, I am confused.

I always thought that most of the people would be happy about the Fujifilm X-T4 having a selfie flippy screen.

But if I look at the recent comments to our Fujifilm X-T4 selfie screen rumor, I am not so sure about that anymore.

So out of curiosity I decided to launch a survey. Vote now, and let us know if Fujifilm made most of us happy or not.

The Fujifilm X-T4 will be announced February 25/26. You can find the precise X-T4 announcement time in your country here.

Don’t worry… I am working restlessly, and more rumors are coming.

CP+ 2020 Show Canceled and Fujifilm Pulls Out from WPPI Show

Share

The CP+ in Japan has just been canceled due to the coronavirus. You can read more here.

Also, a FR-reader informed me (thanks), that after many years, Fujifilm will not be at the WPPI wedding & portrait show in Las Vegas. I checked, and indeed they do not show up in the exhibitors list. There will, though, a Fujifilm rep at the B&C Camera booth.

I remind you that Fujifilm will skip Photokina, too.

Get ready to see Fujifilm less at big trade shows, and more on dedicated Fujifilm X Summit events.
