About a month ago, I was debating on selling my Fuji X100. I hadn’t really used it much. There were/are so many quirks about it that I didn’t/don’t like. A lot of these feelings too were coming from the fact that I know my Nikon like the back of my hand. Out of nowhere, I had this urge to want to challenge myself. So, I deleted my Craigslist ad and put my Nikon away. I’ve been shooting with nothing but the X100 since then. At least for personal work.
Needless to say, I’m loving it. I want to slowly start using it at weddings. So, I went out last night to go see my friends, Deer Vibes, perform. I figured I’d get some great practice using it in a low light situation with lots of movement. It was just what I needed to get some practice. I love the raw grittiness. I shot everything at 5000 ISO and feel that the camera can’t really handle that ISO very much. But for me, I still enjoy the feel of a photo more than anything, so it doesn’t bother me personally.
I really did like how it felt to use that camera last night. I felt like I enjoyed the show much more. And people don’t pay attention to you too much with that camera. I’m enjoying this Fuji journey.
