A London Saturday in early June
From Carnaby Street to Southbank via Soho, equipped with my new Fujifilm X-Pro2
My new toy: a new professional-grade digital camera. Perhaps in a quest to exercise creativity when limited spare time permits, I decided to get the Fujifilm X-Pro2. With its hipster looks, plethora of manual controls, small size and good reviews, seriously, I was sold.
Verdict after one week: I love my new X-Pro2. I am still getting used to all the manual controls & menu options, but it already feels ideal for street photography. The Fujifilm XF18mm F2 and the super-sharp XF35mm F1.4 are both a pleasure to use (I like going back to fixed focal length prime lenses after a long time of using a slow zoom lens with my old Canon 40D).
Yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon wondering around London. Starting from Carnaby St, Paul and I walked down to Soho, Covent Garden and then the Southbank. Even though the weather was cloudy at first, it cleared up towards the late evening.
Here is a selection of photos from the walk. Hope you like them!
