Webpage reflected in a cube.
I finally got a new camera, the Fujifilm X100. My Canon S90 died in the war and its shattered corpse has not served me well. I haven’t really taken pictures for almost a year, not with pleasure. These are the first few photos I’ve taken. I guess I’ll do a review once I use it.
The thing about the X100 is that it looks like the first camera I used, a Yashica SLR (which my parents had taken my baby photos with). Old school body, manual controls, viewfinder – but with a DSLR sized sensor. There’s no zoom and no swappable lenses, it’s basically a street cam, for me at least.
So far I’ve just used it as a desk cam. Hence the only photos are of stuff on my desk, or the cat, who usually sits next to me as I work. Taking it out on the town this week.
What I really dig is the viewfinder, it automagically detects when my eye is there and either shows me Terminator view of reality or a digital image right in the eyepiece. I have to figure out some focusing tricks and stuff, but it looks pretty sexy and promising so far. So happy to be able to take photos again.
