Loire Valley, France - Day 2


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/Loire/28.8/OD280023b.jpg

The heat is oppressive today. We feel like taking a shower every 15 minutes. Despite this we battled our way to the largest chateau in France, Chambord.

 

Chambord Location

 

As you can see from the map above, Chambord isn't far at all from Blois where we were staying for some 10 days. The map shows where a couple of hundred chateaus are situated in the Loire Valley. That's why we chose Blois as ...

Loire Valley, France - Day 1


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/Loire/27.08/P1010372r.jpg

Ten hours it took to drive from Frankfurt, Germany to Blois, France. Blois is the regional capital with some 50,000 inhabitants. After finding the flat we had rented for the next 10 days, out we went to see what delights the town could offer.


For those who are curious to know where Blois is, it's right in the middle on the Loire Valley where most of the chateaus of this famous valley lie. From Blois, ...

New Lens Expectations

I now have the 12 f2 for MFT and for Fuji X mount.

Two Panasonic GM5 Cameras Do London


photoblog/php/London/P1050051fr.jpg

This post has taken a really long time appear here; I never seemed to get around to it, or something else took priority. Anyway, better late than never. Before I begin I would just like to mention that throughout 2016 my Panasonic GM5 cameras have seen a tremendous amount of use. I was quite surprised when I realised that all major holidays/breaks/visits this year were done with the Panasonic GM5 cameras. I think this shows ...

My X-Mount Lens Solution (Partly Solved)


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/Fuji_price_hike.JPG

My last post was just me philosophising a little about what X-Mount lenses to buy or not. I still haven’t acquired the Fujinon 10-24 f4 because it’s just too expensive. Can’t justify it, and if I personally say that about a lens then it’s got to be serious. It doesn't mean that I've given up on that lens though, it's just on hold.

 

I decided to go another route with my X-Mount lenses with ...
