Close Encounters……

I love shooting close to my subjects, I’m thrilled by the small details of my subjects, I’m also thrilled when I have a Close Encounter with the gear.  Recent I’ve blogged about the new X-T5, but I thought in this blog entry I might change it up and show you and myself that some of the first generation X Series cameras.  The image above was made with my first Fujifilm love, the mighty X10!


You may be shocked at the other images, each will denote which “early” Fujifilm camera was used for the shot.



Fujifilm X-T1 55-200 and Nik on 4T Diopter. The Shocker: @ ISO 6400!!!



Fujifilm X-T1 – 60mm Macro lens



Fujifilm X-T1 – 18-135 zoom



Fujifilm X-10



Fujifilm X-T1 – 50-140mm zoom



Fujifilm X10



Fujifilm X-T1 – 18-135 zoom



Fujifilm X-E1  – 60mm Macro



So I imagine you are as surprised as I was, the Oldies often are truly Goodies!

    Yes they are! Still loving my X-H1but wonder how nice it would be to crop a lot with 40 MP and still have the resolution to print large. Not that I do that very often. I love how you remind us though that newer is not necessarily better. And, as you and Jack have always taught me, it is more about the shooter!

    I am down to two bodies, the X-T5 and the XH-1, If I found a mint Graphite X-T1 I would pick it up
    though not sure why, those two are capable of everything I need! Merry Christmas!

    Something is saying to me that the typewriter shot should have been done with the FM2 and Tri-X.

    I suspect some people today might ask what’s a typewriter and/or Tri-X.

    Merry Christmas, Bill.

    I think you’re right, on both counts!
