Scotland for Ernest Journal / Fuji X-E2 Travel Photography | Colin Nicholls | Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

I was recently once again contacted by Ernest Journal Magazine with a request to head up to Scotland, take on a few assignments and see some incredible sights, all for the feature and cover of their second issue. Of course I said yes. I had 4 goals on my trip and a few places to visit, in short these were:

  • Meet a prawn fisherman, head out on his boat and get some photos of him fishing. This was a great job to have, very interesting but also rather difficult to balance on a small boat, while taking photos.
  • Visit an oyster farm, great seeing how oysters are farmed, met some really nice people and was given a seafood platter fit for a party of 4, needless to say I tried some awesome food.
  • Travel to the Isle of Skye, meet some weavers who use a bicycle powered loom to make all sorts of things, very interesting and such a welcoming couple.
  • Covershoot, during my whole time in Scotland I was aiming to get a good selection of images for the magazine to choose their covershoot, in the end they went for one shot at Sligachan on the Isle of Skye......

An unfair comparison? The Fuji X-E2 vs the Sony A7r | Tom Grill

An unfair comparison? The Fuji X-E2 vs the Sony A7r | Tom Grill | Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it


On the face of it, the idea of comparing the results from a smaller APS-C 16mp sensor to those from a larger full frame 36mp sensor is a completely lopsided affair, and something I did not intentionally set out to do it. Quite by accident, while testing the Sony A7r for another blog review I intend to post later this week, I discovered that some images taken by the lower 24mp Leica M 240 were really quite close in quality to the A7r, and this started me wondering about how much of an improvement a high resolution camera like the A7r would be over something like the Fuji X series. So, just for the fun of it, I set up a comparative situation to see how close I could come to the full frame image quality of the Sony A7r while using the smaller sensor of the Fuji X-E2.....
