The Fuji XT-1 and XC 50-230 meet Australian Wildlife |
Caveira Photography

Most of us are guilty of spending our dollars on getting that ‚perfect lens‘ or piece of gear that will ‚make my photos so much better‘. It’s bred into us via the internet and marketing and I am certainly guilty of such things considering photography isn’t my bread and butter, yet I own a pretty nice but simple Canon rig, and my Fuji rig is growing steadily. After recently adding more Fuji gear to my arsenal (XT-1 & XF56 1.2) I decided to check out a ‚cheap‘ Fuji zoom lens for testing my skills in areas I’ve not worked much in before – wildlife photography. For $240 AUD (~$190 USD) the XC 50-230mm f4.5-6.7 is a relatively compact and very quiet zoom lens covering a 76-350mm focal length and it also has Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). As I’ve said to my best mate before and fellow camera and Transformer’s enthusiast, ‚I’m just like Optimus in that I’m a Prime kinda guy‘, so this is the first zoom lens I’ve ever purchased, which opens up a lot of opportunities and a different way of shooting compared to what I’m used to. Regardless, I had a lot of fun with it and was pleasantly impressed with the results……
