X-PERT CORNER: the new Fujirumors column by Rico Pfirstinger


Dear Fujirumors readers,

I’m very happy to introduce you to a new weekly column at Fujirumors that will start tomorrow.

As you may know, a few days ago I posted a comprehensive reading sample of the book “Mastering the Fujifilm X-PRO1” (das Fujifilm X-PRO1 Handbuch). The author, Rico Pfirstinger, sent me the links to the German and English version. I enjoyed the look inside the book and appreciated the tips in his reading sample.

I decided to contact him and discovered a very passionate, creative and competent photographer. After a few emails I asked him if he’d like to share his knowledge and some useful tips about the Fuji X-cameras with my readers. I’m glad to tell you that he accepted my proposal and contributed with many ideas to the development of this new column: the “X-PERT CORNER“.

So, from now on, you’ll find a column written by Rico Pfirstinger here on Fujirumors. But it’s you, the readers, who can decide what he should write about. At the end of every post you’ll find a new poll with 3 options. You have a few days to vote for the option you’d like to have covered in the following episode of Rico’s “X-pert Corner”. The most voted topic will be the subject of his next article.

I’m really grateful to Rico Pfirstinger for his kindness and availability. Now, it’s time for me to shut up and leave the word to Rico and to you. Hope you’ll have a nice and profitable time at the “X-pert corner”.

Rico Pfirstinger studied communications and has been working as journalist, publicist, and photographer since the mid-80s. He has written a number of books on topics as diverse as Adobe PageMaker and sled dogs, and produced a beautiful book of photographs titled Huskies in Action (german version). He has spent time working as the head of a department with the German Burda-Publishing Company and served as chief editor for a winter sports website. After eight years as a freelance film critic and entertainment writer in Los Angeles, Rico now lives in Germany and devotes his time to digital photography and compact camera systems.
