Today just spent the day walking around shooting with the Fuji camera and the prime lens which is the rather sharp and fast Fujinon F2 35mm lens. Here’s some stuff from play time today out and about in the city. There are worse places to play with a new camera. Ho Chi Minh City has so much going on most of the time you can just sit in a place or walk the city streets and find parks, buildings, people. All the good stuff to capture and have fun with.
Just for some details; I shot most of the images around F5.6 but the last image went to wide open to get some basic bokeh going for fun. I also shot a few images with F4. Most or all were taken with either the Provia, Classic Chrome, or Acros+Red black and white film simulation. All are just JPEGs right out of the camera.
I’m going to continue this week playing with the F2 lens. I am really liking the ability to get an auto focus so fast and have the smaller size with the lens. I have to use sneaker zoom which is okay.
I have been thinking of a second camera body lately that would let me use the lens I have with it. I don’t quite feel like spending the money for an X-T3 and I think its more of a camera than what I need. I do like the X-T20 camera body which is the generation before as a backup. The X-T2 is possible too since you can find it discounted these days. I would not buy another camera body until I am ready to go back to the states and would have it sent to my ex-wife’s house so I can just pick it up there.
Anyways, that’s the story from today. Pizza tonight!
