A DPR reader posted a request for folks to post names of, and images made with, the “magical” lenses that they own. I thought through my lens collection, and didn’t come up with any that seemed to fit that description. That got me thinking. There are short lenses and long lenses. There are fast lenses… [Read More]
This is the 27th in a series of posts on the Fujifilm GFX-50S. The series starts here. I made a series of dark-field exposures with the GFX at ISO 1000 with LENR turned off.

On some cameras with electronic first-curtain shutters (EFCS) and non-global all-electronic shutters, there is a difference in the quality of the bokeh between those shutter modes and the all-mechanical shutter. Is that the case with the GFX? I… [Read More]
This is the 25th in a series of posts on the Fujifilm GFX-50S. The series starts here. The Fuji GFX-50S has an all-electronic shutter mode. When running silent, the mechanical shutter is on vacation, lying back and catching Z’s while the sensor does all the work. The mechanical shutter is a rabbit, completing an exposure… [Read More]
