  • Marco invited mirrorless camera expert Mathieu Gasquet (Mat) co-founder of


  • After testing many mirrorless cameras from different manufacturers, Mat gives his thoughts on the unique qualities and some of the shortcomings of Olympus, Sony, Fuji, and Panasonic cameras.


Mirrorless news of the month:


  • The Fuji XF10 is the newest compact camera from Fuji that seems to replace the now discontinued but highly praised by Marco X70 compact camera from Fuji. But is it a real update from the X70 or did Fuji make two steps back here?


Amazon Germany:   


  • Fujifilm also officially announced the new Fujinon XF 8-16mm f2.8 R LM WR Lens and the XF 200mm f2 R LM OIS WR Telephoto lens. Both lenses, the XF 8-16mm on the wide and the XF 200mm on the tele side can be game changers for professional photographers using the Fuji system.

  • Fuji added 3 new lenses to their roadmap. The XF16mm f2.8 (expected in 2019), XF 33mm f1.0 (expected in 2020), and XF 16-80mm f4 (expected in 2019).


  • Nikon is teasing the announcement of their full-frame mirrorless camera on August 23rd, 2018. The internet seems to be going crazy in expectation of this camera but is this hype justified or is Nikon late to the game?

Mirrorless question of the month:


Hi Marco, love the shows. I have a question that you might want to use on the show. I have a Fuji X-T1 and 18mm lens for my cityscape photography as a lightweight kit to take on work trips. However, I’ve always wanted an X100 and now the original ones are getting close to £300 - I’m tempted. So my question is, does the original X100 still have a place in 2018 as a travel and street camera.

Further to this, I was going to use the X100 for my black & white work (which I hear people say the old sensor is better? Or gives a different look?). And I want to use it for my long exposure photos, so autofocus speed isn’t really an issue. Many thanks!
