Got an invitation to attend Fujifilm Singapore’s launch of the X-Pro1 camera today but I sneaked outta it when everyone were busy giving a go at the cameras. There were pretty models and cool macro stuffs for us to try the X-Pro1 on but after sneaking out to reply some urgent messages … I decided to get myself a few pints of cold beer and … whip out my DSLR & Lensbaby … with the Edge 80 optic. Yeah … I’ve got serious attitude problem.
Wondering what I feel about the X-Pro1 huh? Well … it is a beautiful camera … seems to produce really awesome results … but (again … luckily) I ain’t poisoned by it. I was expecting the camera body to be heavier though. What I was interested in was the flash that I guess designed to go with it. I don’t have a photo of it now but I’m sure it will be all over the internet if you do a search. If it does come in silver … I’ll grab one for my X100.
Anyway … I got trigger happy and fired one too many photos today. Here they are … just 25 out of maybe 80 that I shot today …
There are times I wished the Edge was wider (it is 80mm) and I forgot to bring along my Sweet 35. Still … I am happy with the shots and had an awesome time Lensbaby-ing.
Not sure if my fuzzy eyeballs are getting better or the beer did help … it seems easier to focus with the viewfinder this time round. Could it be due to the optic? Could it be due to the beer? Hmm …
Heard that the Pentax K-01 is arriving this or next week. Perhaps I’ll go grope one at the shop when it arrives. I’m sure I’ll be more tempted by it than the X-Pro1.
