White Wine at the Blue Hour, Some thoughts about full frame cameras

FinePix X100 (23mm, f/5.6, 1/60 sec, ISO200)

After two days in Dubrovnik we are back in our hotel in Podstrana. This was our favorite hotel during our whole trip and that is why we returned for another couple of nights. The hotel has very nice rooms but the best is that breakfast, dinner or drinks are served outside close to the sea. Behind the whine glasses you can see palm trees, the beach and the setting sun.

After dinner we had our daily walk at the beach. There are no white sand beaches just gravel stone so it’s a little tiresome to walk but nothing beats a sunset by the sea.

All images taken with the Fuji X100. This camera has really grown on me within the last year. It’s dynamic range, the colors, the rendition and the low noise are impressive. This is easily as good as my Canon 5D if not better. But I love full frame since I took my first image with my 5D. With the Sony RX1 announced I think there is hope to see a full frame version of the X100 or the X1Pro sooner or later. Continue reading

Just Another Sunset by the Sea

NEX-5 (55mm, f/5.6, 1/100 sec, ISO250)

Just another sunset at the sea. This time in Podstrana, a small town close to Split. After dinner we had a walk and I used my NEX 5 o take this shot. Traveling with littlebigtravelingcameras means more holiday and less worrying regarding equipment. It’s liberating! No big gear, no tripod just a small little camera. I start to wonder whether I will ever take my DSLR on a vacation in the future.
