As 2017 comes to a close; its certainly a prefect time to give
thanks. 2017 have been a great year. First I have the privilege of
testing and eventually buying a Fujifilm new mirrorless Medium
Its an amazing system and the ease of use; makes this a top
choice for me. Both work and also leisure. That includes
holiday oversea. It’s that portable! I could easily live with it
while traveling. If rumor is true about the GFX-R. A range
finder style version of GFX. I certainly will be very excited
as I am a sucker for X100F and X-Pro2, range finder style
cameras. In fact it was X-Pro1 that gotten me started with
this love affair with Fujifilm; and eventually dump Canon.
Here are my fav 15 pictures shot with the GFX for 2017.
Next thing to give thanks; early this year I made a switch
from Profoto lighting system to Broncolor. I have been using
Profoto for more than 10 years. Its a great system that have
serve me very well. Why the switch?
I guess its call; the coming of age. A natural progression.
I must confess it did took me a bit longer than expected to
fully get use to Broncolor. There was also a period I asked
myself why did I even made that change?
It wasn’t that easy for me to get a traction, especially with the
Broncolor Para. Once one finds the sweet spot. I begin to see
the “light” of Broncolor. The light its produces…….. almost
second to none. Of course we all know the number one brand
is call the SUN! As for Broncolor its pretty close to the number
one brand. Ha! Anyway, here are another 15 of my fav pictures
shot with GFX paired with Broncolor amazing lights.
And the last thing to give thanks its the new Broncolour
wireless transmitter for Fujifilm. Yes for Fujifilm. I have
already place my order and I guess I will get it next month.
Finally the marriage of my favorite two brands. Knowing that
I am able to use the GFX( and also X-T2 and Xpro2! ) in HS
mode with the power and beauty of Broncolor light. Anytime
and anywhere. With this news I am really thankful how 2017
I do have one wish list that didn’t come to pass in 2017.
Anyone wanna guess what that may be? And I hope 2018 will
be the year. This will make my photographer’s life complete. At
least for now. If only I could tether GFX with Capture One. I wish
this will also come to pass soon. Finger Cross. Till then I wish
everyone in this photography community an amazing and
