Death of an FStop Bag
1 February, 2016

My F-Stop Tilopa camera bag has died, so I've had to start looking for a new camera bag. Every photographer I know has multiple camera bags, it seems that for many of us it is an unending quest to find the "perfect" camera bag. Personally, I went through 5 different camera bags ranging from backpacks to slings and a few other variations, all of them we good at doing 1 or 2 things, none of them covered all of what I wanted though. I primarily...

Review: Expert Shield Screen Protectors
13 July, 2014

A few months ago I was approached by Expert Shield and asked if I would field test their screen protectors, I was upfront with them and told them I've really not been a fan of screen protectors in the past as they tend to bubble, haze, collect dirt and peel off.

Fuji X-Pro1 - Initial Thoughts
27 June, 2012

Hey All, I've been lucky enough to be given a Fuji X-Pro1 by Leigh Diprose for the last few days to give it a road test and see what I can do with it. I was heading away for the weekend already, so I took the X-Pro1 on a bit of a road trip around the south of Western Australia. My very initial impressions of the Fuji X-Pro1 is that it has an exceptional build quality, the camera is quite nice to hold even with my large hands, many of the smaller...
