New Dawn in the garden

So I’ve started shooting with my new camera. It’s not all that easy actually, there is a lot to get to grips with. The hybrid viewfinder (optical and electronic) is a piece of genius and so useful but it takes some getting used to.

I’m intending to return to posting one most days like I used to as well as catching up with with other blogs.

It’s good to be back!

Here’s why I’ve not posted anything for ages

I sold ALL my DSLR gear, camera, lenses, backpack, filters, battery grip, the lot.

My recent experience of being in Florence, Italy, was frustrating with my heavy camera, having to change lenses, etc…

I decided I needed a different kind of camera. Looking at my images I also realised I do not actually need a zoom lens as I used to almost always shoot with my 28mm fixed lens.

SO HERE IT IS: the Fujinon Finepix X100 is now MINE!

I researched extensively before stopping at this one but the reviews were simply awe inspiring, the capabilities of this little camera are outstanding so I took the plunge. I even bought a 3 year warranty with it to show I’m serious!

Here is a review.

The leather case you see here I bought from an artisan in Japan who make all his cases by hand, a very beautiful piece of work…

If  you’re interested, they are made by Mr Rikuo Nakamura, and this is his website.

So I should soon be posting new images!
