One of my favorite cameras is my Leica M6. Shooting film is a very fun, calming and exciting hobby for me. It breaks up the norm of shooting with digital and I believe it hones ones photography skills.
Below is a video about my Leica M6 and some sample images I have taken with the camera.

I am totally out of my element as I sit in Wickenburg, Arizona armed with a Fuji X100F and IPad Mini. I just received my X100F last week before my trip and I am amazed how magical this camera is. I owned the original Fuji X100 when it was first released. I enjoyed that camera but with all its quirks it was replaced with the XPro-1. Already owning a Leica M6 I also lusted for a digital Leica camera which prompted me to purchase a Leica M-E. The bulky body, antiquated rear LCD screen, poor low light / noisy files and slow buffer made me contemplate selling it on several occasions. I watched the value of the M-E drop over the years and decided to sell it and purchase the X100F and some accessories. The left over cash also paid for my Arizona trip.

Once in awhile I find a product that I really like, stand behind and make repeat purchases. Gordy's Camera Straps is one of those products. I really like buying from American companies that make a great quality product. I was finally able to make a proper review video of the Gordy's custom leather camera straps that I have been using on my cameras for the last few years.
Here is a link to the review video :

Well today I finally got around to doing a short review of the Fujinon XF-90mm F2 lens.
After using the 90mm lens at a recent wedding I am happy to report that it works fantastic. It has a very quick auto focus and fantastic bokeh. The lens is very sharp at f2 and gives images a very 3d like quality. I find it on par with my previously owned Canon 135mm F2 L lens.
Enjoy the video and happy shooting,

I am super excited that my Vinny The Lens logo was completed earlier this week.
