Here’s another shot with the Fuji X Pro 2. I shot on Friday in jpeg and on Sunday in Raw and you can definitely notice a difference with the Raw files. This one’s from my Friday outing, taken at Steam Whistle Brewery on the waterfront.
Yesterday I spent the day shooting at Kensington Market. The streets were closed for Pedestrian Sunday, which brings out the crowds. The one thing I noticed most was just how discrete this X Pro 2 is. No one seemed to notice or care that I was taking pictures of them, whereas with the Canon 5D I always stood out when I raised the camera to my eye. It was a dream to shoot with. This time I managed to recharge the battery during a lunch break, so I didn’t run into that issue again. I was also pleasantly surprised at how quickly I adjusted to shooting only a prime lens. I think 35mm is my focal length. Probably 28mm would work well for me too.
I returned the camera this morning, grudgingly. It really does seem to be made for me and for street photography. I just have to figure out how to raise the funds to buy one.
