some photography : Fujifilm X100F

So I got a new camera! I upgraded from my Fujifilm X100S to the newer and much-improved X100F. I had a love/hate relationship with the X100S. It had a lot of good qualities but I just could not get to a point where I loved it. I loved the idea of it, but with practical use, did NOT love it. The autofocus was slow, the images didn’t look like I wanted them to, it was awkward, I don’t know, I just did not connect with it like I should have (or thought I would have). But in the last couple of months, I decided I was going to get it out and make friends with it anyway. And I did, pretty much. I did love it for travel, and that’s what I wanted it for. I got some of these shots with it before I traded it:

But then I got the bright idea to trade up to the X100F. I didn’t NEED it, but it does have a lot of upgraded features that made sense for me. Faster autofocus (it’s SO much better), better and larger sensor, you can charge it through USB, can change ISO on the camera as opposed to the menus, it macro-focuses automatically, better Auto-ISO parameters, a joystick for autofocus point selection, but still has the charm and good looks of the X100S, still a good travel size, and still has similar controls, so it’s familiar. So we went to Arizona last week and I took it with. Ran out of battery power once because I forgot to charge the battery when we got done with one activity and the extra batteries I ordered were delivered about two hours after we left the house, of course. Nevertheless, I was really happy with the ease of use and the photos that I got. I am loving the X100F. No hate yet. 🙂 Hope I never get to that point.

First two are from my backyard. I’m digging the macro feature.

Old Town Scottsdale: All in all, I think I’m going to be quite happy with this camera and I’m looking forward to getting out and shooting. That’s the main thing, isn’t it? 🙂
