In this video, Bert Stephani discusses his love of portraiture, and shares his thoughts on the new Fujifilm X-T5.
Bert has numerous Simplr straps, but the one seen attached to his X-T5 is a castor gray F1.
*It’s worth noting that our recommendation for an X-T5 would generally be a lug mount F1 — but Bert is tall — like 6’7″. Bert likes the flat mount F1 because he’s able to lengthen it well beyond our published max of 56″ via its attachment hardware.
If your specialty is concert photography — 2020 and ’21 have not been your best years ever — until now that is, for one such photographer.
Flemming Bo Jensen’s passion for music, and unmatched timing have made him on of the world’s finest live music photographers. When he was asked to photograph Danish band The Minds of 99 at Parken, Denmark’s national stadium, of course he jumped at the chance. It turned out to be the largest stadium concert in Europe since the onset of COVID, and the subject of this inspired short-film.
Flemming’s been part of the Simplr product testing team since the beginning — and most of his cameras are adorned with F1’s — his camera strap of choice for working fast, in the challenging world of concert photography, while leaving nothing to chance.
There’s been a ton of excitement around the new Fujinon 33mm lens — and nobody’s better equipped to give impressions than Charlene Winfred — who’s spent years with the “original” Fujinon XF35mmF1.4 R practically glued to her camera.
Alongside the new and old lenses, are some appropriately-matched new and old Simplr straps (Charlene’s been testing our stuff since the prototyping stages) — and we’re just happy to be along for the ride.
