Rattle and Hum, Thoughts about the X-Pro 1

SONY DSCSONY NEX-5 (39mm, f/8, 1/60 sec, ISO250)

I got my Fuji X100 in September 2011 but it became my most used camera in that year. Even more impressive when you consider that it had the SAB ( sticky aperture blade ) problem, needed to be sent to Germany for repair and missed a trip to Moscow.

It was also by far my most used camera in 2012 but I doubt that it will be my most used camera in 2013 and the reason is simple: I got myself the Fuji X-Pro 1 for Christmas. Continue reading

another year over….

A very tough one because death and disease played major roles. It affected both family and close friends. A year where I had to accept that death and disease belongs to life. No one alive today would be here if not millions died before.

When we are young death and disease mean little to us. At least for the lucky ones born in a rich country. As we grow older they become more important and we start to fear them. Till the day where we accept that they belong to life. I’m almost 44 years old now and finally grown up.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Take your time before you grow up.

But there was a time before the RX100 and after the NEX 5. Continue reading

Even better than the Acropolis itself. Well almost. At least in the summertime when thousands of tourists are stuck in between the Patheon and the Dionysos temple at 45 degrees Celsius. This is one of the few museum where it is not allowed to take pictures.

I took some before I asked. Sorry. Continue reading
