FujiAddict Celebrities 2017 and Looks Forward to 2018


2017 was a great year across the Addict sites thanks to readers and tipsters with FujiAddict leading the way. We doubled in size this year and hope to double in size again in 2018 with your help, so keep liking and sharing. Blogging about photography and shooting with the photographers that I have met along the way has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life and I hope to do a lot more of it in 2018.

The community that we built on Facebook in 2017 is a great asset full of helpful members and great photos from just about every camera type you can think of thanks to our close partnership with Nikonrumors/Photorumors/Leicarumors/Pentaxrumors that will continue paying dividends going forward. Once again the Fujifilm GFX Owners group is by far our largest Addict group, with a variety of working professionals actively posting in it daily and I can’t thank them enough. Our communities have remained very professional and cordial since it was founded with members willing to help photographers of all skill levels become better at the craft of photography.

Of course, SonyAddict is growing nicely too, but more so towards the end of 2017, due to the release of the innovative Sony a9 and very desirable Sony a7RIII. It’s hard to say how these two cameras will affect Fujifilms momentum going forward, especially since Fujifilm has the X-H1 and X-T3 on the horizon, but both companies deserve a lot of respect this year. Similarly, 43Addict had a lot of spikes in interest with so many competent compact cameras being released, but the Panasonic GH5 by far was the big winner in 2017 for m43. As of right now, m43 seems to have a very loyal following, but there aren’t many photographers switching to them.

There truly never has been a better time to be in photography and the addict sites represent the companies that are pushing photography technologically forward. I believe true photographers need to amend the old saying that “The best camera is the camera you have with you” to “I should try to have the best camera with me that I can at all times.” I’m pretty sure this would have been the saying in the past if they had access to the cameras that we have today because there are so many great compact and light options. I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and join our group’s bellow.
