Fuji X-E1 vs Fuji X-E2 - Focus Speed + General Use

Fuji X-E1 vs Fuji X-E2 - Focus Speed + General Use | Photography | Scoop.it
It's upgrade time and this week saw me go from my 2 Fujifilm X-E1's to
upgrading one of those already great cameras to the much loved and

Instagram for iOS app updated with landscape mode and more | Photography | Scoop.it

Instagram is wildly popular, but has notably lacked a few features that users have been asking for. Today, the company updated its app for iOS, adding a couple of those much-requested features, perhaps the best being the addition of landscape mode, allowing users to flip their smartphone in a horizontal orientation when desired.

Hong Kong & Great Light | Derek Clark

Hong Kong & Great Light | Derek Clark | Photography | Scoop.it


It’s been five years since we were last in Hong Kong and it’s great to be back. We have a ten day stop over here (although two days will be spent in Macau), then it’s off to the Philippines to shoot the project for the NGO, which will appear on the Kage Collective site later in the year. I shot these with either the Fuji X100 or the X-E1 with the 18-55mm f2.8-f4 (more on this lens on a later post). At this point the X-Pro1 was still in the bag. Hong Kong is an amazing city with stunning archetecture and design. It’s a living, breathing, pulsating metropolis, a great place to be and an even better place for photography. I don’t think I’ve felt more at ease or safe,  even in the two cities where I shoot street the most in Scotland. Everyone should come to Hong Kong at least once in their life.....
