*for those of you who are unaware, currently, Xennec's Kickstarter campaign is found here*.

*for a more comprehensive review of Xennec's Daypack 15 plus much better looking pictures, please refer to Keith's post here*.

*disclaimer - i already put in my early-bird buy on the Kickstarter campaign long before TK Foto offered to let me try this prototype. so these are my personal views of the prototype, which i am told is very similar to the final product.*

when it comes to camera bags, it is like ladies' preferences for shoes and handbags... you can't have enough of them. hehe... we are all guilty of it, somehow. for me, it is always about finding a good (i long ago gave up the idea of perfect)...

[keithwee] Camera Bag Review: Xennec CityScape Daypack 15 (Kickstarter campaign starts 7 Nov 2018)

*IMPT: The link for the Kickstarter campaign for the range of Xennec CityScape bags is here.



This review comes in 3 parts.
1. Introduction to the brand Xennec.
2. The top 10 characteristics a top end Camera backpack should have.
3. User experience of the Xennec Cityscape Daypack 15 and Conclusions.

For starters, even though I've reviewed gear from the Fujifilm medium format and X-mount system to the Leica M system, there is a side to me that only those who know me in real life know about,

that I am kinda obsessed with camera bags too.

This is a wedding photography workshop with a difference. One that we are excited about.

Raymond Phang Photography and Lightedpixels are coming together to put together a workshop in the idyllic island of Santorini, Greece.

These two leading wedding photography studios in Singapore and the region have vastly contrasting style and that is why we think you will benefit greatly from attending the workshop. It's basically getting two workshops for the price of one.

Participants will be staying in the same resort and the workshop will bring you to some of the nicest places to photograph. There will be photography lessons and demo sessions as well. Participants will also get to bond with like minded photographers and grow together.

The package is also attractively priced at an early bird offer of just S$1,800. This covers the course fees, your accommodation and daily breakfast.

For more information and to book your place, email either Raymond Phan...

[keithwee] The most informative review of the Fujifilm Instax SQ20 hybrid camera.

  • 379
  • 3
*note: The full (here its around 90%) and most updated version of the SQ20 review will be on keithwee.com


The Instax SQuare SQ20 was announced by Fujifilm on 25 September during Photokina 2018, , and I guess it was inevitable that news of the SQ20 soon got buried under the many other announcements of the likes of the GFX100S, XF33mm F1.0, Panasonic getting a larger sensor, Zeiss doing a mirrorless camera (et cetera).

And… yeap, here is what dropped by this week! (well, it’s pretty some time since I last reviewed the Instax Square SQ6)

A very photography-biased iPhone XS review

  • 974
  • 1
Some very interesting details in John Gruber's review of the iPhone XS and XS Max – https://daringfireball.net/2018/09/the_iphones_xs#fnr5-2018-09-18

His conclusion: For anyone upgrading from an older iPhone, the iPhone XS and XS Max should seem amazing in every regard. Compared to last year’s iPhone X, the XS and XS Max are solid refinements across the board, but deliver a dramatic year-over-year step forward in photo and video quality. If you care about the image quality of the photos and videos you shoot with your phone, it’s hard to resist.

Review of the Fujifilm X-T3 : Refinements towards Perfection.

  • 2,149
  • 7
*note: This is an abridged version (about 70%) of the full and most updated version of the X-T3 review on keithwee.com
If memory doesn’t fail me, when the Fujifilm X-T1 was released back in Jan 2014, it’s excellent implementation of physical dials, tilt-screen, great handling and of course that huge ‘center-ed’ EVF propelled the brand forward towards more serious and professional users – and of course, easily made the X-T series the best selling (vs the X-Pro and X-E) in Fujifilm.



In reality, it wasn’t a perfect fairytale story. For example, the X-T1 back then was plagued by light leak issues & the dreaded mushy D-pad that took time to correct but yes – from then on, Fujifilm has learnt from experience and has evolved fast with the X-Pro2, X-T2 and of course, the recent...

[keithwee] A 2018 review of the Leica M6 and 35mm Summicron V5 with samples.

Note: the most updated and full write-up is available at keithwee.com

*Firstly, a shout-out and appreciation to Ricky from Fotografiehaus for loaning the Leica M6 Titanium and 35mm Summicron to me for the review.



Speak the word Leica and more often than lot, people's ears snap to attention and almost everyone will have an opinion on the brand ranging from : heritage, quality, expensive, photography, art, over-priced, pure, rangefinder, collectible, only manual focus? ... and the list goes on.

After the sharing of the Yashica T4 point and shoot camera, today I am back to share my experience of the Leica M6 film camera, this time coupled...

[keithwee] An user’s Review of the Fujifilm XF10 camera: the love that’s pocketable

  • 2,092
  • 0
Note: The full (including sample images) and most updated version of the review will be at keithwee.com , here.

My first impression of Fujfilm APSC cameras being truly pocketable (no, not cargo pants pocketable which is cheating) actually started with the Fujifilm X70 a few years ago.


Yeap, thats 18 months old Kei getting to know the X70 for scale . Back then in early 2015, cramming an APSC-sized sensor into a body this small with built-in flash, tilt and touch screen capabilities proved the X70 to be a hit akin to the Ricoh GR.

3 years on, with no news of a X80, I had moved on and assumed nothing would ever come close to the X70 again in terms of APSC sized compactness… until the day I was handed this baby from Fujifilm Asia Pacific...

Crafting with Filters by Jon Chiang

  • 7
Landscape photography often times require working with the extremes of light in a single frame.

As such, filters are needed to control highlights so that the image will have good tonality for an impactful final result. In this talk, official Haida Filter Singapore ambassador Jon Chiang will share how he uses different neutral density and other creative filters to craft light within the camera.

As it’s NDP fireworks season, he will be sharing his knowledge about fireworks photography too.

[keithwee] The Leviathan – Review of the Fujifilm Fujinon GF250mm F4 R LM OIS

Writer's note: the original article was posted here at on 1 June 2018 and the most updated and full version (I did not include the full set of sample photos here) will always be at keithwee.com


With my foot still recovering post surgery from the addition of 6 screws to keep everything in place, I somehow had the audacity to say “yes“ to the question of whether I wanted to take the 7th lens in Fujifilm’s medium format series for a spin.

And here it is in full glory, all 1425 grams of top notch optical prowess mounted on the GFX50S...

[keithwee] One of the most informative review of the Fujifilm X-T100: The complete basic camera.

  • 2,953
  • 12
Writer's note: the same article was posted here at keithwee.com on 24 May 2018 and the most updated version will always be at keithwee.com

Now, to be honest this was one camera review I actually did not plan on doing (with me trying to manage my main job, kids and life itself) but haha, yes, the X-T100 did end up in my hands due to the generosity of a very close friend and I am again humbled and very glad to share my thoughts about this latest release from Fujifilm.

And this was with no regrets, for the X-T100 does come with its own unique surprises – for example: even better than the ubiquitous ‘Smile Shutter‘, the X-T100 comes with its own ‘Buddy Mode‘ in SR+ where you get to define your level of ‘buddiness’ from Level 1 to 3 and so on. (Its super fun at how this can be super awkward)...

[keithwee] Review of the Fujifilm Instax SQ6 camera.

  • 2,698

Today on 15 May 2018, Fujifilm has announced the Instax Square SQ6 camera. I’ve been fortunate to review it before release and am very humbled to share with everyone here my review.

P.S: I was invited to post the full version of the review here but it takes too much time , hence the full complete version is still at:


A year ago when I was introduced to the hybrid Instax SQ10 and later the Instax Share Printer SP-3 (my review is here), a nagging feeling that persisted in the back of my mind was:

Will we ever see a 'true' Instax Square Camera?​

and a month ago, these nagging thoughts was put to rest when I was invited to test out the to-be-announced on 15 May 2018 (today!) Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 camera.
