Goodbye Fujifilm

Yeah, I know, it’s a shock. The website is after all called This will be my last post here.

I’m a happy Fujifilm user, so I haven’t departed because the grass is green on the other side. I’m not going to be negative about Fujifilm gear, I still love it. I like the retro styling, I like the aesthetics, I like the quality, I like the controls. I probably would have bought the 8-16mmF2.8 and 200mmF2.

I departed because I disagree with the way some things were handled by Fujifilm Australia and the Fuji X Aus group, so it’s a matter of principles and integrity and apparently we have different ideas of what those are. Maybe I’m wrong, maybe I’m right, I won’t go into the details as I don’t want this site to end as a bitter “he said, she said” dispute so I’ll vote with my money and make a switch to another brand. I don’t get paid to write, and I can’t write about a brand if I am not passionate about it.

I’ll leave the content here for now, there are articles that may help people and that was the original purpose, the domain is paid for so no point in shutting it down. When it expires, it will probably be outdated anyway.

I’ll still be @theoverratedphotographer but I’ll be supporting another brand with my business. I probably won’t blog about it although I will see what happens. What brand that is, is yet to be decided.

Anyways, goodbye, thanks for the ride, and thanks for all the support. Enjoy your Fujifilm gear, it’s great gear, and don’t forget to get out there and take photos.

  2. Very sorry to see you part with Fujifilm. One of the many things I like about Fujifilm is the community of users who spend time to share their knowledge and enthusiasm online. I have very much enjoyed your website and will miss your musings on Fujifilm and photography in general. Good luck in choosing your new system.


  3. Too bad you leave Fuji. I actually sold the A7III which I owned for 5 month. The colors are just way bad for me and it isn’t fun to shoot with after a while. It’s a very technical machine.

    Good luck
