Does the Fujifilm XT3's non flip-forward screen rule it out for vlogging? I found out in the following clip which worked out better than I expected, although it's still a little disconcerting not seeing if you're in-frame or in-focus:

20 seconds by Brighton Pier with the Fujifilm XT3 - straight out of camera in Velvia. My XT3 review is steadily progressing and I'll be adding more content to my page about it at over the following days!

Tamron's 28-75mm f2.8 is a classy but competitively-priced zoom for Sony's full-frame mirrorless cameras: a step-up from the 28-70mm but cheaper & brighter than the 24-105mm. Ahead of his full review, Thomas shares his sample images:

Trying out the new Black and White Adjustment mode on the Fujifilm XT3, here in ACROS with +5 warming effect. I was initially sceptical, assuming it'd end up like another Sepia, but I'm very pleasantly surprised by the results.

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to completing my Fujifilm XT3 review too. PS - coffee definitely helps me get through them all, cheers!

no, my Canon EOS R review is using a final production model. Same for my upcoming Fujifilm XT3 review.

Canon EOS R vs Sony A7 III: Fight! I've spent a long while shooting with both side by side for my in-depth Canon EOS R review, out today. It's an important new system so deserves one of my big reviews! Find out which full frame mirrorless is best for you:

Did Apple get rid of the illuminated logos in the lids of recent MacBooks to protect their branding from stickers? Glancing round my (Mac-dominated) cafe, most of the glowing Apple laptop lids have been covered by stickers, but none of the shiny silver ones have.

Joe at in . Crisp details against a lovingly-rendered backdrop courtesy of the Canon EOS R fitted with the RF 50mm f1.2 at f1.2 of course! After several weeks solid testing and analysis I've completed my in-depth EOS R review

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside! One of Brighton and Hove's lovely Victorian warming shelters on the sea front. Always makes me want to go all Martin Parr. I snapped this with the Fujifilm XT3 and XF 18-55mm, which I'm in the process of reviewing!

See, I'm not only about the burgers! Kale salad with the Sony FE 24mm f1.4 GM on an A7r III. I love large aperture wide lenses as it's easy to squeeze-in subjects without stepping back too much, but at f1.4 you still get a shallow depth of field

Low light AF with the Canon EOS R and an adapted EF 70-200mm f2.8. In my tests face and eye detection worked about half the time but luckily this was one of the 'hits'. I'm approaching the end of my final review so look out for it soon at

no confusion for me, I try as hard as I can to nail the shot in camera without any post or editing at all. That's my goal, although I know it's all a personal preference and you should do whatever works for you.

I've only casually used the Nikon Z bodies so far, so can't comment on any potential deficiencies - or positives - until I formally test them. My lens tester Thomas has one though and is working on a 24-70mm review as we speak at

I agree, I have very fond memories of alternating between the original Patisserie Valerie and Maison Berteaux for my late night Soho cake fixes in the early Nineties.
