With a big birthday coming up this year Helen has already splashed out on a present – The Fuji X-T100 was on sale on the Fujifilm web site for just £279 which is an excellent price and I went for the Dark Silver model which included the Fujion XC 15-45 lens. The camera has a nice retro look but has some great modern features like a touch screen and articulated screen.
The first camera arrived but unfortunately had a mark on the sensor so was returned and replaced. This meant I couldn’t take it with me on my recent trip to the USA and since coming back the Covid19 restrictions have restricted my attempts to use the camera but taking it out today on my walk I was impressed. The electronic viewfinder is clear and crisp. The camera is compact and lightweight and the retro controls are nicely laid out. The APS-C CMOS sensor is 24 megapixel and gives excellent quality results.
Nice selection of settings replicating old film favourites like Velvia and Provia built into the menus and some great options connecting the camera to a laptop or tablet via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. My first impressions are positive and looking forward to using it when things get back to normal.
Here are my recent corrected photos from the Canon 6D Mk II for our recent trip to Antelope Canyon. All hand held as tripods are no longer allowed on any tours into the Canyon. All pictures taken in raw and processed through Photoshop.
On the last day of our trip we visited the wheel in Las Vegas. $23 for a ticket to see Vegas from the sky. The wheel is 550 ft tall – around 120 feet higher than the London Eye. Next time I come I am going to do the wheel at night for views off the strip in neon. Here are some phone shots.
