The X100 is versatile, even with its tiny sensor you can make short ass depth of field images if you crank it open. Definitely my favourite camera of the moment. Love its size and power compared to its bigger, uglier, heaver full frame dslr cousin.

Fuji X100

A couple of weeks ago, I had a rush of blood to the head and got my hands on a good, use Fuji X100. There is a lot of eulogising about this camera in far flung reaches of the Internet, and to date I can’t disagree with any of it. It is by far and away the funnest camera I’ve owned. Quirky, sure, but remarkable results. Mostly I like that I can just stick it in my bag and not know that it’s there, unlike the monster dslr I use (less and less).

colour temperature

As can be seen from the pic above, different strobes can have radically different colour temperature – the large strobe on the left is a Bowens GM 500, the small strobe on the right is a Nikon SB800 – noticeably bluer.

meet my new friend

Will be shooting with this tomorrow with two old friends, hopefully generating some new and interesting work. A 22″ beauty dish, it’ll take some learning.
