Fuji x100s

I finally took the time to put together a post about the Fuji x100s!
This is not a technical review or something very detailed, it’s just my opinion on the camera, why I got it and a few examples of photos I already took with it.

I got it because I wanted to have a camera that I could carry with me always, my dSLR was too heavy for that and the quality of the images from my phone wasn’t enough. So this Fuji seemed perfect, it’s small but I can still shoot in RAW and control all the settings.

Luckily enough someone I knew was willing to sell me his 1-year old Fuji x100s for a very affordable price :) (thank you once again E. & JM!)

I’ve used it for more than two months now and it’s funny how often people see it and say “oh you have an old camera!” – it’s true that from the front it looks like one because of its design and the viewfinder window, but then I turn it around and show them the LCD monitor!

The lens is a 23mm, equivalent to a 35mm on a full frame camera.
The aperture goes from f/16 to f/2.
The ISO values from 200 to 6400.
It’s pretty versatile and the images you get are so sharp, it’s awesome!

Alongside the shutter button you have the exposure compensation and the shutter speed dials, the auto-focus button is on the left side and the rest needs to be set up in the menu of the camera. However, there’s a “Q” (Quick) button on the back that allows you to directly access and change items as ISO, image quality, self-timer, white balance, etc.

Below are a few examples of photos I took with this camera, in different situations.
You can click on some of the images, it will take you to posts I did before related to it.

- Landscapes -

- by night -

- Close-up -

- Travel -

- Selfies -

- with Friends -

One of the things I like the most about this camera is that it’s super silent, you can take photos of your friends without having them all turning their heads to you as soon as they hear the “bip” ;)

If you’re looking for a small and easy to carry camera close to a dSLR this is a good option.
I hope this post was interesting and helped in some way!

PS: If you want to know more about the leather strap I have for the camera there’s a post here.

To You From Me

Between WordPress, email subscribers and social media,
all together you are close to 500 followers!
So I thought it was time to make a THANK YOU post :)

This is a personal blog, my little corner on the web where I share my photography, so every time I get an email saying “X is now following your blog” or a notification of a new like on Facebook/Instagram it puts a smile on my face!

Even though we photograph for ourselves, we post our work online hoping someone out there will identify themselves in some way with it and connect with us. Right?
Otherwise, what’s the point of sharing?

I feel lucky I could e-meet many of you already and do some online collaborations, get creative together, or just talk about photography. Even if you’re on the other side of the globe!
It’s just the best – the Blogosphere rules ;)

That’s what I wanted to share today and I took these photos with that in mind.

Hey, if you just stumbled upon my blog for the first time:

I’m looking forward to sharing more things with you!
Stay tuned as I have some new gear to show you and fun projects to reveal over the Summer.

Don’t be shy and leave a comment – I always like to know who’s on the other side ;)

15 minute photoshoot

I met with Romina the other day near the train station for a quick photoshoot, she had a train to catch so we needed to hurry!

We just went around the corner to find a nice street and shot these pictures in 15 minutes.
It’s true that because we’ve been shooting for almost a year now, we have our little routine but still, sometimes you don’t need much to get great images! ;)

You can see more photos of this shoot on Romina’s blog here.
