Alleyway Benz

I shot this with the X Pro 2, sporting the 16mm f1.4 lens on it. I shot in aperture @ f8 and let the camera select the ISO and shutter speed. I set the camera to auto ISO with a … Continue reading

Face of the faceless

Colourful Queen Street

I shot this today with the Fujifilm X100T. I picked one up for three day “try before you buy” promotion. No charge. So far it’s a pretty cool camera; however, the auto focus is a tad slow compared to the … Continue reading
