Photolemur 3.0 Review - Unleash those idle vacation photos

Photolemur is an interesting app that claims to offer "the world's first fully automated solution for creating perfect photos." The word "perfect" is relative when it comes to photography, most photos are edited to taste and what's "perfect" to one person may be rubbish to another.

Nevertheless, there are certain repetitive techniques that most of us employ when it comes to post-processing a certain type of image. For the sky in a landscape photo, you might reduce the highlights and boost the vibrance most of the time. You can start to imagine how this might be useful for casual photos that are not portfolio quality, but still need some editing before distribution.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF50-140mm F2.8 OIS WR LM Review

The XF50-140mm is a must-have for any serious Wildlife, Portrait or Landscape photographer out there. It’s fast, sharp, has excellent Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and is weather resistant.

Its unique focal range and aperture is a testament to Fujifilm’s focus on the APS-C sensor, solely aimed at emulating the classic 70-200mm full-frame equivalent at F2.8. You don’t get a lens like this with other manufacturers’ mirrorless systems.

Fujifilm X100 Series for Travel: A week in Japan for the Fall

The X100 series is an interesting camera. With a fixed lens that befuddles new enthusiast photographers, it’s one of those cameras alongside the Leica Q that seems to be designed just for capturing memories.

I once took the X100T to Japan in 2015, shot exclusively with it, and came away impressed with the results. Now I find myself deeply considering the X100F as an “on-groom” camera for my wedding.

Moment Lenses and Photo Case Review - The best interchangeable system for your iPhone

It’s no secret that I came away extremely impressed with the camera on the iPhone X. The set of dual stabilised lenses and Apple’s willingness to partially post process images in-situ made it close the gap even further on point and shoot cameras.

With interchangeable lenses, the iPhone X has even replaced my mirrorless cameras in “broad daylight” or “bad lighting” conditions 90% of the time.

Some thoughts on the Fujifilm X-H1

So after many months of rumours, Fujifilm finally announced the X-H1. X-H is a reverse-play of the abbreviations for Hyper-X. Like most of the bodies that come out of Fujifilm, I’m sure it’s a solid camera.

My question is, who is this exactly for? And why is there a need to amalgamate the new features it brings into a new product line?

Apple AirPods Long-term Review - An ode after 10 months…

It seems like an eternity since Apple decided to ditch its headphone jacks on the iPhone 7 devices and caused a whole bunch of (what I thought was) overly dramatic reactions.

Now that the iPhone 8 devices are out and that the iPhone X is looming over the horizon, more people are going to face life without a headphone jack. If you’re getting your first pair of wireless earphones, I cannot think of a better pair to recommend than the Apple AirPods.
