Hey Steve and Brandon.
My Fuji X100T has just arrived, and I thought I’d share some of the pictures from my first morning walk. I decided to go to a spot I know well. I mean it’s hard enough to get to know a camera for the first time, if you add to that a location you don’t know… well you get the picture!
This is big! At least for me. I have alway loved street photography, but never had the nerve to go out and take pictures of random people in the street. And since my main camera is a Canon 7D, It’s kinda hard to be unnoticed when that damn shutter claps away!! I mean, It’s called “Cannon” wright?!
Well, I guess there’s a first time for everything, and this was my first time shooting street action. And, let me tell you, I couldn’t be more pleased with it; both the performance from the Fuji X100T and the resulting images. Some say “Well it’s ok and everything, but ist’s no full frame!” to what I respond “Sure it’s not, but I’m not getting payed for my images (I’m not a professional photographer) ; and even if I was, an APS-C Type sensor is more than capable of producing great images.You don’t need full frame for that!”
Others gasp “It’s only 16 megapixels, wright?!”; what leads to a sligtly grumpy response from my part “Why would I need more? I don’t print mural nor building sized photos! I rarely print photos, which I regret; and when I do the biggest prints are 8×10. So I guess 16 megapixels is more than enough. Not to mention the storage space it saves me!”. Oh and don’t get me started on that whole lightroom RAW development “issue”. I know that, probably, there are other softwares that might be “better” at developing Fuj RAW files. And that if you sharpen the crap out of your images in Lightroom you might get the watercolor effect. Honestly, I didn’t notice it when I developed my pictures with this camera. Then again, I’m not looking at my files at 200%!! Just kidding, or maybe not !-)
No really; I know It’s not perfect. Although I love the X100T, I’m not blind to all it’s flaws. But like all good partnerships, It doesn’t come without it’s quirks. I’ll just have to kow, what and where they are so I can deal with them.
All in all, It’s just a fun camera to shoot. At least for me!! But enough talking, here are a few shots from my walk.
Thanks guys, and keep up the good work.
Bye for now.
A father and a son, turn as they hear a helicopter flyby. The kid, of course, stares at the boats; while the father searches for the helicopter.
Keep in mind, this place is full of people wlaking and running. But somehow, this guy just seemed slightly off. I don’t know why but, Johnny Walker comes to mind!!
This lady had a very gracious walk, she could have been Grace Kelly’s long lost sister. Not that she had one!!
