A FujiFilm X100s, caught in the wild, grazing near a lake at Beaver Brook Park, Hollis NH.
I've been helping my friends purchase X100 cameras. They liked mine so much, we began a quest of finding used ones so they could all share in the fun that is the X100.
Here is a totem of three of them taken during Memorial Day weekend while camping. There is nothing like helping your friends spend their money, especially when you are helping them spend it on cameras :)
A few weeks ago I picked up a Fuji Instax printer. It allows me to print mini-polaroids of images off my cell phone, or images I've uploaded/downloaded to my cell phone. I picked one up because Fuji recently discontinued all of their instant pack-film, which I love. I stocked my fridge up a few years ago of FP-3000B, the black and white instant film, when they ceased production of it. The final nail in the fuji pack-film coffin was when they announced earlier this year that FP-100C, their color instant film, will stop being made.
So the Instax came the other day, and with my Fuji X100S I took a photo of my Fuji FP-3000B and through a Eyefi SD card sent the image to my Android phone which I then sent wirelessly to the Instax printer which made an instant print and I then took a picture of the print with my Android to upload to Instagram.
Which is interesting from a technology standpoint. But it's kinda dumb as well. ;-)
I'm a huge fan of vintage photography. I love old cameras. I love old lenses. I love old photography methods. There are times when I wish I could just flush the studio out and start over shooting nothing but wet plate photographs. Someday I'd love to start shooting wet plate and tintype.
Lemme tell you about how my recent lens purchase, and about the gentleman who made my wood lens mount.Read More
