01:40:44
As Kev jets out to Spain for the month to escape the school Photo Booth, the boys decide to take a leaf out of X-Photographer guest Emily Endean’s life-book and consider vanlifing for a month together as we lament the loss of a showbiz legend who is now Wombling Free forever more. Photographically we talk about jpegs versus providing prints in social photography, online galleries, the seemingly rare X100V and what we'd like from a newer model, AF in the X-H2s, a London guide for street photography and do we miss full frame?

X-T4 or X-T2, what do I choose? Why Kev hasn’t been on YouTube so much of late, why you could/should consider shooting P mode, the pitfalls of shooting too much when it comes to the edit, how the magical Tascam audio gizmo works that we’ve been discussing, and more.

#222 Organisations. To join or not to join??? And Kev goes green with rage!
01:02:46

Today Kev gives wedding advice, but not necessarily the photographic kind. The last of the current weekly editions before the show reverts to a monthly from April. We talk about the monotony of some business tasks that sap the joy from creativity, forgetting clients’ names and raise the ‘Should you belong to an organisation or society’ question cautiously. We talk about settings for making video shooting out of the box, editing software, focusing issues, workshops and tech in cameras; is it getting just a little too clever? Get your questions in to click@fujicast.co.uk or through the private Facebook group.

#219 Will my camera float? And Kev’s in an Amazon Frenzy!
01:06:52

Neale is still considering whether to douse a Fujifilm camera in a bucket of water to test its water resistance, whilst Kev is keen to put anything with an Apple logo into that same bucket. We talk about Fujifilm making a film camera; is there a market? We discuss the possibility of the public now hiding from street photographers, favourite photographer documentaries and BEST value camera bags; it seems Kev may be responsible for Mr. Bezos’s fleet of yachts!

#218 Upgrading to the X-T4 and kinder street photography
01:04:05

40:07

The end of the dailies. As life starts to return to a state less locked down, the boys are returning to their offices. The FujiCast community is beginning to emerge too it seems, and so we've done our job. We're back to Mondays from 8th June, but we wanted to end with something a little special in honour of not just our family, but families everywhere, families together, families separated by distance or those who have made connections that have felt like a new family emerging. Stay safe. Neale and Kev x

42:39

#129 The sky is the limit and are you ready to work again?
28:46

Nine weeks of lockdown has softened our feet and, for some folk aided a little weight gain. So are we fit enough to return to work? Shhh, a little more F versus V. Duplicating web content on Facebook or Instagram; good or bad practise? If you have a business page, listen to this. Kev has an idea how to find who is blatantly copying your hard work on their website. And what stops us from achieving our ambitions?

May 29, 2020
#128 Just how tough ARE my Fujifilm cameras?
26:56

Some photographers it seems, think every scratch tells a story so today we ask, just how tough are our Fuji cameras? And does Kev need to invest in new dividers? Printing at home. It's not for the faint hearted, or is it? And the new software that makes your X body the best webcam ever! Send your questions as ever to click@fujicast.co.uk

Today, Kev's 'Book you can buy when it's safe to go out and spend money again' feature and this week it's one of his all time favourites. The question of worms comes up and we think we have a very basic workaround, well, sort of. And the wedding cancellation 'game,' perhaps there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

#125 An X100 battle and some podcast news from Neale
28:27

Entering the last week of dailies, Kev and Neale contemplate their feelings nine weeks into lockdown as measures start to lift. The X100, F or V? Which is the one to buy?

And then Neale has news of his new photography podcast starting Monday 1st June. It’s all in today’s daily.

32:22

Eclectic is a word we've use a bit of late, but today's Tech Free Tuesday is certainly that. Tuesday's have become the 'let yer hair down day' where we get personal and conversational about life outside photography as much as in. Thank you to those who pose the stranger and more amusing questions. Just some light relief between all the photography questions we get to. Tomorrow back to books and photography.
