  1. I recently moved from Micro Four Thirds to an X-Pro2 and I absolutely love the images I've been getting. But I missed having a small bodied camera that was easy to carry everywhere. I was hesitant about the X70 because of the lack of viewfinder and the 28mm equivalent focal length. Based on the great reviews I had read online, I tried the Sony RX100 IV but found it awkward to hold with image quality that was not nearly as good as I expected. So I returned it the next day. After striking out with the Sony, I decided to give the X70 a try. I've had it for a few days now, but the weather has been dreary in Philadelphia all week, and I wasn't really able to put the X70 to the test until today. After a couple hours walking around South Street, I'm really pleased with the camera and the images I'm getting from it. It's very easy to shoot one handed, quick to focus and I only missed a few shots. It's great for street photography because no one seemed to take any notice of me. And I didn't miss the viewfinder at all. Here's a few images from today. Philly Jesus Hookah Cigarette Doggies Pull Ups 1941 Dreads
  2. After 8 years of being on Flickr... I finally got an image 'explored'! I mean don't get me wrong... yay a computer algorithm likes my work! I've been published, I've placed well in competitions and I've been paid for photography... but despite lots of Flickr images, over lots of years (and about 0.5million views!) I'd never hit explore!! The Calm Sea by Adam Bonn, on Flickr Enjoy! (although possibly not as much as I did!!)
  3. My adopted home city of Porto (in Portugal) is so beautiful and photogenic, that even Leica send photographers here to shoot. I may live here, but I don’t have a Leica… But it’s not problem, because I have a Fuji! (3 in fact!!) If the people make a place, and in turn the place makes the people, then what sort of pictures can you capture? Well Leica have just released a new model M. No don't worry, here's not the place to find out about it, you can do that at their website. But I cannot tell a lie, I did watch their promotional video... ...for one simple reason, they sent a trio of 'Togs to Porto. So the mighty Leica deem Porto worthy of flying in photographers to capture street scenes here... Cool! But for me, when I want to do that, I just leave the house! So armed with a "mere" (sic) Fujifilm, let's take a bus ride (sorry I can't spring for a plane) into town and see what we can see! The Purposeful Explorer by Adam Bonn, on Flickr “The Purposeful Explorer" Porto rolls down the valley into the Douro river, criss-crossed by ancient side streets. Like any popular tourist destination, it pays to explore away from the main areas, to see and feel as much as possible. Who knows... maybe you'll be so enamoured with a place that you'll end up living somewhere new! Street Cards: A Serious Matter by Adam Bonn, on Flickr “Street Cards: A Serious Matter" Wander away from the main streets and you'll see local life flourish. Groups playing card games, this is clearly a serious business! The Attraction & Fear of Nice Things by Adam Bonn, on Flickr “The Attraction & Fear of Nice Things" Porto has many shops, a lot of them are not 'chain' stores, but independent places selling treats and delicacies. Meats, cakes, Port, wine, coffee... Nice things! You should definitely treat yourself, well if you're allowed in that is! The Attraction & Fear of Nice Things by Adam Bonn, on Flickr A Forgotten World by Adam Bonn, on Flickr "A Forgotten World" To my eye at least, Porto offers the chance to see people go about their lives, in surroundings that have not really changed for a great number of years. This, too me, has a special charm that drives home the notion that things do change, but they really don't. It's wonderful that a company such as Leica acknowledges Porto* as a destination that demands photography, if you visit the city, I guarantee you'll see the sights that those Leica photographers did, you'll love them and photograph them, and you should start there. But if you then venture just a few hundred meters away from those famous places, you'll see the views from a slightly less well trodden (but no less authentic) path. The Timeless Line by Adam Bonn, on Flickr "The Timeless Line" Whatever camera you shoot (and no matter who's picking up your travel costs) you'll find a little spark of visual magic on these streets. Happy travels, where ever you go (*Yes, I'm aware of Leica's manufacturing connection to Portugal!)
  4. Hi everybody! During Christmas 2014, me and my girlfriend spent three weeks traveling through the northern half of Vietnam. The tour was (unsurprisingly) more or less: Hanoi --> Cat Ba --> Ninh Binh --> Hue --> Hoi An Wait... what? Heard that somewhere before? Well, that's right. This is the second of two "twin threads". Check out the (rather mediocre) landscapes over here. After having a long, hard second look at all the pictures, I decided to make a dedicated thread for the street shots. Normally, I would consider myself more of a landscape photographer, but I have definitely shot far better landscapes with my trusty X-T1 than on this trip. And even after several months back, I still like the documentary-style shots way better than the landscapes. One reason might very well be that with all the heavy-DSLR-lugging tourists everywhere, the X-T1 made me feel rather unobstrusive, so I had no problem getting in close and establishing some sort of contact with the people I shot. Or in some cases - take a few steps back: This was also the trip that made me seriously fall in love with the 35mm-equivalent (which was the XF 23mm 1.4 back then... and which also led to an additional X100T later on... *sigh*). So, let's get this finally started with the... Streets of Hanoi, Part I Make no mistake - If you're not used to Asia, arriving in Hanoi will come to you like a shock. Well, it certainly did for me. The smog made breathing pretty heavy already when we left the airport. The taxi ride into the city gave us a glimpse of the madness that's called traffic which would await us in the Old Town. People keep telling you and they do because it's true: It does take you something like half an hour to cross the street at first. Unless you have a death wish. After half a day, however, I got used to the constant madness, crossing the street became merely a matter of not looking left and right, walking at a constant pace, trusting the motorbikes to drive past you and NOT EVER STOPPING ONCE YOU STARTED WALKING. It's about then when your attention is drawn to all the things that are going on around you at the side of the streets: This fairly quickly made me finally fall in love with the city. I don't know how other tourist experiences are, but I felt pretty much unhasseled and safe wherever I went. And the food is absolutely delicious - we pretty much started eating street food right away and never had any issues. Sitting on a plastic chair within all the chaos, scrubbing your spoon and chopsticks clean, eating ridiculously delicious noodles of all varieties, served with fresh herbs you've probably never tasted before (and which you share with pretty much everyone near the food stall) is just a great experience. Oh, and did I mention the cà phê sữa? Try the coffee! Drink the coffee! Love the cof... okay, I guess you got it.
  5. This might be of interest to the Street shooters among you. I heard this on BBC R4 woman's hour this morning. Shirley Baker 1932 - 2014 Street photographer from Manchester UK, Check out the links if interested. https://en.wikipedia...i/Shirley_Baker http://www.theguardi...ker-in-pictures if you want to hear the programme go here. It starts at around 17.5 minutes. http://www.bbc.co.uk...rammes/b061twpp
  6. I've developed a bit of an addiction to street photography since moving to Tasmania and the X30 is perfect for the style I do. Many deride the smaller sensor but for street photography it's great as you get more depth of field without having to bump the aperture up to F8. The almost silent shutter helps a lot too as on a noisy street you can't hear it at all, unlike my friend's X-Pro 1 which you can definitely hear. The fast burst mode is great too and helps to ensure you'll get a few options. The X40 can't be far away and I'm excited to see what they do with it, whether it will be another big change or a more gradual upgrade. My main wish list would be better high ISO performance, not necessarily a larger sensor although the 1" would still give decent depth of field. Time will tell.... Here's a link to a blog post I put up recently on the experience of shooting street photography with the X30. https://czechingoutofhere.wordpress.com/2015/09/17/street-photography-with-the-fujifilm-x30/
  7. Heya folks. Here's some thoughts on shooting street photography with the X30. I know the X100 and X Pro 1 are the Kings of the Streets but I think the little guy deserves some love too. https://czechingoutofhere.wordpress.com/2015/09/17/street-photography-with-the-fujifilm-x30/
  8. I strongly believe that the rampant selphymania is only a fashion like bell-bottoms and batiked t-shirts. But it's a very funny one and it would be a pity if we don't preserve those precious moments of tingly embarrassment. So join me in collecting selphy scenes to entertain our descendants.
