Kevin Mullins and Neale James present The FujiCast Photography Show, a podcast for professionals and enthusiasts alike. Featuring special photographer guests, gear reviews, Fujifilm camera tips and your questions.
Productivity and, “Can you help find my mojo?"
Neale is getting dewy eyed over Chris Killip’s nostalgic photography, meanwhile Kev is sidetracked by his black belt grading and banned rugby anthems! By the way, if you’re a rugby fan as our Kev is, steady and ready yourself for some hopeless score predictions! Meanwhile in photography world, transitioning from portraits, finding street photography, editing larger raw files, smaller lens sizes and can we have a percentage symbol for battery strength instead of bars? Also, giving feedback to Fujifilm, bring back your mojo, X-E2 focus features and Lightroom sharing. John Dolan is our special guest returning for part two of his chat with Kev, and the boys are looking for more show questions; tech, creative and anything in-between, so email our website or Facebook group.
Happy Birthday X-Pro1 and the amazing Mr Dolan!
'Black belt in waiting Kev' ponders fight club in East London and Neale is wrestling too, but with a loan camera of a flavour he’s never tried before. We celebrate a special birthday for a much loved Fujifilm camera, talk about all-weather shooting, white balance 101, Torsten’s X-Pro3 has returned home, questions of sharpness in the Fujifilm range, print options for our hero sponsor pic-time, the best FF camera for vlogging with a FujiGimbal and auto ISO issues. Also, an appreciation for darts, though it’s not a sport! Our guest is John Dolan, documentary and celebrated wedding photographer.
End of the road for the X-Pro? And TRUST your pictures
Kev moves into plumbing services it seems and Neale’s left wondering where the years seem be disappearing to. Meanwhile is it time to drop DSLR from our language, is the X-Pro 3 the last of the lineage, if the brand was Fuji-Mullins - what would the next camera release be? Also today, strong post wedding sales, we talk ’shooting square’, try to figure how some photographers find an ‘X factor,’ understand why the X100 range has a small form factor, and accurate colour from your monitor. Book of the Show is The Perfect Imperfect by John Dolan and after the show on the Patreon channel the pop up show features our first member’s picture critique, street pictures from Wade Brown in Australia.
#236 Nostalgia, rock ’n’ roll and the missing mince pies
It’s Boxing Day 2022, there’s no let up for ya from the boys, as they meet for St. Stephen’s Day in the Podcastsphere. Today Kev receives preset orders from unlikely places, reveals his top movie of all time, we discuss the magical X100V ‘zoom’, new critiques for ’23, more on delete and sharpening-gate, street photographers with attitude, X-H2s or the H2 and Kev delves into Eric Luke’s Changing Faces of Ireland book.
Kev is selling his camera! Plus getting the 'filmic look'
Neale laments another England footie exit, though gets over it within 15.7 seconds, whilst Mullins is too full of cold to even know the result. This week, assigning buttons, even more shortcuts and why Kev is selling gear! We muse over which design elements of the cameras and lenses we use today could be the result of Mullins’ contributions to the suggestions box at Fujifilm HQ’s design floor in Japan, we discuss which sensors have more of a filmic feel in the Fujifilm range and photo processing to achieve that look, original X100 values, first and preferred lens choices, IBIS and another case of ’The Worms!’ Beware sharpening levels. Our guest is Chris Orange on food photography and his special assignment!
Touring the Fujifilm factory and to grain or not to grain
Kev attempts an unboxing, camera short-cut secrets, how to clean your cameras, using Affinity Photo and we talk about grain; what’s the best way to apply it and is it really necessary? We find out that Kev has a new ‘not so secret now’ Instagram page for lovers of black and white photography, what do you say to famous folk you meet in the bathroom, syncing your camera clocks part 2, copying settings between camera bodies, why you shouldn’t delete in camera and more. Also this week Kev and Andreas get behind the scenes in Japan at ‘the factory’.
Listened from the start and really enjoy listening. Every day through lockdown was a great motivator to keep believing and to work out to as well.
Love the show.
Looking forward to meeting Neale again in July as he is shooting a friends wedding (we never spoke last time as it was a training session years ago) but I recommended him for a friends wedding and I’ll be a guest!
My wife is the bridesmaid and I need a day off…. :)
The bride to be fell in love with his photo-films.

Best photography podcast out there
Very informative with great banter between the presenters Neale & Kevin. Very well produced on par with any professional radio show. It’s not just Fuji related either. So add this to your must listen to podcasts. Highly recommend. Tell them Pittsy sent you 😉📷
Not just Fujifilm
Started listening to this podcast a couple of months ago and have binged every episode. There is a good mix of technical questions and creative questions. They are wedding photographers so there is a few questions related to wedddings but most of what is being said has a lot of crossover into other genres and fields. The production is fantastic and the presenters bounce off each other making it a very worthwhile and informative listen. I’d this podcast recommend to everyone.
