Given this blog has ended, I thought I’d put forward an alternative recommendation for those who still want regular Fujifilm content written by someone who is honest and sincere. This particular person has been a fellow contributor on the blog on a number of occasions and is someone that I have a lot of respect for.
Apart from being a Fujifilm user, he is also just a downright nice guy and to top it off, he has the new X-T3 so he should be able to provides some thoughts on it. I’ll be catching up with him on Sunday to look at comparing the X-T3 to the Sony A7iii so keep an eye out for his site in the follow up weeks to see that, or take a look at http://www.theoverratedphotographer.com to keep up with my version of the truth. If he says something different to me, he’s lying 🙂
Have a look at https://gregcromie.blog and I’d recommend subscribing, it will be worth your time.
Yeah, I know, it’s a shock. The website is after all called http://www.myfujilife.com. 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 When it expires, it will probably be outdated anyway.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.
