Fujifilm X-T1 Review Coming Soon!


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!

    Its good to hear that you had such a good time with your friends. It is always refreshing and inspiring hanging around with people that share the love for photography. I think it would be fun to shoot some frames with you either on your upcoming foto-walk or on whatever occasion. New York is definetly on my list of places to visit. Have a nice weekend.
