Fuji X-T1 Review Coming Soon:
I have to say, I had a great week. A family friend from Hong Kong came to New York for a visit, and talk about a person who has been bitten by the photo bug lol. He brought along his OM-D E-M5, a GH3 with an IR conversion done to it, and an A7R. My brother in-law stopped by as well, and when we laid out all of our gear on the table, there were two OM-D’s, one GH3, an A7R, my M 240, the Fuji X-T1 I was testing, and a whole bunch of lenses. In some ways, it felt like we were at a classic car show event :).
My friend took photos of everything, and it turns out he does the same thing in Hong Kong. It wasn’t just inspiring to see a person that loves photography so much, it was also extremely contagious. I’ve lived in New York all of my life, so there are definitely days when I feel like I’m shooting the same old thing. Sometimes I lose a little inspiration but hanging out with him completely rejuvenated me photographically. It also made me realize how much I enjoy shooting with someone who loves photography as much as I do.
I think when Finding Range gets bigger, I’m going to try holding a few photowalks around NYC (free, of course) because it was really fun to go out with someone like my friend who has such a passion for photography. I’m usually either shooting alone or with a bunch of my friends who aren’t necessarily that into photography, although I still love them ;). Thanks to this blog, I’ve met some really cool people all around the world who I keep in contact with on a regular basis. It would definitely be cool to go out and take pics together.
Anyway, as I said before, I’ve been shooting with the new Fuji X-T1, and while I did encounter a couple of issues with it, overall, saying that I had an enjoyable experience with it is an understatement. I’m working on my review this weekend, so expect it to come out very soon. I hope all of you are doing well out there and shooting, especially since the weather seems to be getting better…at least in NYC. Take care!
