Point and Shoot Shoot Out! Fujifilm X30 vs Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) - Part 1

Our latest video features the Fujifilm X30 going head to head against the Leica D-Lux (Typ 109). Both cameras are compact point and shoot cameras with fixed, variable focal length lenses.

Watch the video -

Part 1 of this two part video highlights the Fujifilm X30 and includes some sample images and videos captured with this amazing camera.

The Fujifilm X30 lens is f/2 with a focal length of 28-112mm.

My favorite thing about Fujifilm cameras are the beautiful color rendition and the awesome macro focus capabilities. You can get as close as 1 cm from your subject and still get the shot in focus!

Enjoy the video and stay tuned for Part 2.

New Vlogs Coming Soon from Turner and Felix

Spurred on by the continuing growth of their channel, Felix and Turner have determined to produce new Vlogs despite their geographic separation. Turner will produce new Vlogs from North Carolina and will "focus" his efforts on film photography, thus the title "Focus on Film with Turner Hunt".

Meanwhile, Felix will produce Vlogs focusing on digital cameras, gear and lenses with his Vlog "Gear Heads Are People Too!".

The biggest news is that Turner and Felix will be reunited this December and will film content for new, full-length Episodes. So there's plenty more new videos coming, stay tuned to!

Video Review - Hasselnuts "Digital Back"

More toy than anything else, the Hasselnuts "Digital Back" leaves much to be desired.

Nothing can match the look and quality of images captured with a Hasselblad camera. That classic film look in 6x6 medium format with high quality Zeiss lenses, but to get images with a digital back, well, we are talking a lot of money. The Hasselblad CFV 50 Digital Back costs a whopping $15,000 USD, even used versions of the lesser CFV 39 can cost uppwards of $7,000 USD. So what are your options for capturing digital images with your Hasselblad?

Enter Hasselnuts, a "digital back" and smart phone application that attaches to your Hasselblad just like a regular back.

I was really excited when I first ordered the Hasselnuts, but I hesitated at the introductory price of $379. I pulled the trigger when the price came down to $299 but I tell you what, this product isn't worth $100. Watch the video and see for yourself.

All Good Things Must Come To An End

I guess I was really putting off posting the last video in part because I knew it was the last video that Turner and I shot together here in Korea. We had been saying that we were going to take a cross country trip when I got back to the states but that was before I decided, either rightly or wrongly, to reenlist in the Army. And, Turner has a job now as well.

I also made the claim that I was waiting to post the video because since we shot this, I had acquired my own Fuji X100S and wanted to add some of my thoughts and comments about it to the end of the video but that turned out to be useless footage. So, I finally ran out of excuses and found the motivation to edit and post this final video. Will it be the last video ever? I don't think so, but I can't say for sure when Turner and I will meet again.
