Finally, Fujifilm made its Limited Edition X100VI available to purchase in the United States last week and that was a whole ordeal with twists, turns, and an uncertain ending.

The team is also joined by Matt Lloyd, ASC, CSC, who is a director of photography, a cinematographer, and you may know his work from Ava Duvernay’s Origin, Marvel’s Spider Man: Far From Home, Power Rangers, Fargo, and Insecure. He’s also from Calgary, Alberta, where Chris and Jordan call home.
