Short Visit to Singapore & 1 year with the Fujifilm x100s

I realize it's been a while since my last post. Quite a lot happened in my life.
We had a wonderful gift for New Years Eve' in form of a beautiful baby girl, Daria. That little adorable monster does, however,  consume a lot of time, so the blog was neglected as a result. Last month we moved to a bigger apartment. You never know how much crap you own until you have to move it! But I digress...

Review: Fujifilm x100s - The perfect Image

Just when I decided it was time to upgrade my camera everywhere I turned everyone were talking about the new Fuji x100s. After a long time drolling over my keyboard, reading every possible review about it, I finally bought one. So, after using it for 5 month, how does this little camera stand up to my expectations?

Helmut Newton

 The other night I watched Helmut By June, a HBO documentary about one of my favorite photographers: Helmut Newton. The film is filmed and directed by Helmut Newton’s wife June Newton, (who's also a gifted photographer, working under the alias Alice Springs) from "home" videos she took while joining him on assignments and while filming him alone.

Review: The Mighty Yongnou RF-603

 Once you start using of camera flash, pretty soon you get to a point where you'll need a way to trigger your flash. And when a cord just won't do it, you'll want a wireless trigger. After doing some digging around I figured Pocket Wizard Plus is probably the best one can buy. But that again, spending over 700NIS for a single Rx/Tx unit was not really an option.  Considering the fact you need at least 2 to do anything, it's a lot of money.  Luckily, there is a decent option for much less.

Review: Trying out the Yongnuo YN-560II

In Russian there's a saying the goes: "I am not rich enough to buy cheap things!" (and widely accepted there as an old English saying).
Well I decided I might just be rich enough to buy a Yongnuo YN-560II flash and hope for the best!

50mm lens Comparison

"I think the 50mm lens is an extremely good discipline lens; it requires you to see in a more refined way, not just tighter.”
-William Albert Allard

 Like most of Canon SLR users I own the Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II lens. I decided to check how this 'nifty-fifty' lens compares to my other, much older, manual 50mm lens.
