In the Fullness of Time - Vindolanda I have been using my new Fujifilm XF10-24mm f/4.0 MK II quite a lot recently, and it really is a superb lens. The contrast and sharpness across the frame are excellent and the focussing is positive and consistent. But one thing has become quite obvious - when taking … Continue reading Too much sky!

As I said in my previous post about my book Yesterday News, whilst it was being printed, I was actually still working on the first volume in the set which is called Diverse Selection. It has now been printed by Bob Books and once again I think they have done a really good job on … Continue reading Diverse Selection
My previous two posts based on trying to get my wife’s old Olympus Trip 35 camera, Film - A Slight Return and Film - A Slight Return 2 explain that we were quite hopeful that everything was working on the old camera. We have now put two films through the camera, both Kodak Gold 200. … Continue reading Film – A Slight Problem
After my last post about being interviewed by Bob Books for my recently published book “Yesterdays News” using their software and printing facilities, I found out today that it has also been chosen by them as the May 2021 Book of the Month. This is brilliant news and something I did not expect. I am … Continue reading Yesterdays News – today

These two projects were based on placing my two Royal Photographic Society distinction in book form. I have made several photo … Continue reading Yesterdays News
As I explained in my last post, I had decided to clean up my wife’s old Olympus Trip 35 so that she could start using it again. After looking at the camera I decided that the original leather grip and covering was in excellent condition and did not need replacing with the new pre-cut leather … Continue reading Film – A slight return part 2
I think I may have just made a rod for my own back. I had shot film for years, had my own darkroom (until my daughter came along) but have never missed film once I went to digital. Then, the other day, I made a big mistake. I have three old film cameras sitting on … Continue reading Film – a slight return
I have been reading the book “Approaching Photography” by Paul Hill for the last couple of weeks. It’s a book that I dip into with a cup of coffee when I have a quiet moment. Hill explores the different genres and themes within photography and clarifies the theories and practicalities that are inherent within those … Continue reading Snapshots and Art
Further to my last post, here is a size comparison of the two lenses on an X-T4. As you can see, it is not a massive difference in size between the lenses and as I also said, the XF16-80mm handles very nicely and balances well on the X-T4.
