My trusty old Pro.

With the advent of a new camera from Fujifilm - the XPro3, I decided to take my long neglected XPro2 out for a quick street shoot at an unfamiliar location. This has always been my favourite camera from Fujifilm and it felt as accommodating and refreshing at the same time, like an old friend. After about an hour with it, I'm convinced that it's still a keeper and not in need of an upgrade just yet. smile

Here are some of the shots taken, all in Jpeg with minimal PP.

Thanks for looking.

The primes are all I use and they are very adequate and great value for the money. One of my favourite lenses is the 56/f1.2, excellent for portraits with lovely bokeh. All the F2 primes offer excellent quality and are compact in size.

I Hope you have a great time in Karuizawa. I was there once before a few years ago. I imagine it will be so perfect for photos with the autumn colours. Travelling light is the way to go these days. Since I took up photography I will often venture into unk...

All taken in the district of Kwun Tong, which use to be a major industrial area. Now modern commercial buildings are springing up but there are still pockets of pre-war buildings and old town life to be found.

Thanks Ferdinand [nt]
