I’m free from lugging heavy photographic gear around the streets.
This was what I carried with me for the Anime Expo 2012. During the event, the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and the Fujinon XF 35mm 1:1,4 R performed smoothly on both candid and portrait shots. Four cheap Power2000 NP-W126 and a Fujifilm battery inside the X-Pro 1 gave me enough juice for 1,500 shots. Each of my Samsung 8GB SDHC cards held a little more than 300 RAW files. My old Nikon Speedlight SB-25 seemed to have a good relationship with my X-Pro 1. I’m happy with the feather weight of the load and the quality images.
Goodbye, monster-weighted DSLR gear. You can peacefully rest in my closet now.
