The x100

September 19, 2012  •  1 Comment

There is nothing like receiving a new camera and better still slowly undoing the parcel and opening the box it came in. I received my limited edition X100 last week and have had time enough to get used to its weird and wonderful ways, even though I have still yet to take it out for a serious shoot.  My heavy Canon gear is going (some gone already) and I am going to use this camera as my only tool.  Just one fixed lens – no zooms – no weight to speak of – freedom at last from the shoulder pain of a heavy bag, the irritating dragging coat sleeve, the awkward lens changes right in the middle of something exciting going on.  It will now be just me and the lens.  I will call my next folder the X-files and I can’t wait to get going with it.

Ran across your website/blog info on the Fuji x-forum today and dropped by your website and moved on to your blog. Needless to say, I will be adding your blog to the list I try to get to every day.
I, too, have left the world of DSLR that I needed for my work as a newspaper photojournalist. Since the demise of the industry (and my subsequent layoff), I recently gave up trying to get back in the biz when the Chicago Sun-Times dismissed their entire photo department of 28 fulltime staffers that included a Pulitzer Prize winner. So I picked up an X100S a month or so ago and that led to me also picking up an X-E1 with the 1.4/35mm lens. I am waiting on the body but the lens is already in hand. I went for the X100S over the X100 for several reasons and the fixed lens has been both a challenge and an inspiration.
Look forward to following your blog and your X100 journey.
