I originally setup the “aKiwiRetrospective” site in 2008 as a means of introducing fellow photographers to some of the cool things about being in New Zealand and to share my thoughts on the then current line of Fuji EXR bridgecameras.
It was also a good way to meet photographers from around the globe.
It was apparent very shortly after this that there really wasn’t a great deal of useful information available for the new breed of Fuji bridge cameras, so I started to incorporate what I had learned from my Wedding & 35mm SLR photography days and assembling useful information to help other users. Since then the “kiwi” has taken on a life of its own.
One of the major factors that we soon became aware of was just how expensive this hobby could be and that a good many folks didnt or dont have the means to go for “Top Shelf”equipment. Therefore our focus became more about what was affordable and how much could you do with “affordable ” gear? And thats where we are today, using equipment thats certainly less the bleeding edge but still able to give the user an excellent result for very little outlay.
Hopefully you will find something of interest here for you.
