NYC Photography | Labor Day Weekend with the Fujifilm X100

Oh, this right here? This would be the latest addition to my collection of photo gear: the Fujifilm X100. Yes, Fuji. No, not Canon.
:: cue the gasps ::

Now, I should preface this by saying that I very rarely make frivolous purchases. And I’m not one of those photographers who was playing with a camera while still in the womb, took darkroom classes in school, and now owns 5+ cameras for no reason other than they look cool and/or I have a compulsive need to collect them all. Nope, that’s not me at all. I didn’t just buy this camera for the sake of it, so know that this was a very calculated and thought-out decision.

Why DID I buy it, then? Well, the X100 is a camera made for professional photographers who need a camera that takes awesome pictures, is easy to carry around, and is fun to use. I can’t tell you how much of a hassle it is to lug around my dSLR with lenses when I’m hanging out with friends, traveling, or simply wandering around NYC. That stuff is HEAVY. But I do it anyway, because it is extremely important to me to document my life’s wanderings as beautifully as I can.

But the X100? It feels SO TINY in comparison. There are no lenses to change. The picture quality is fantastic, given that it’s not a professional camera. And, bonus: it looks SO COOL and is SO MUCH FUN to play with!

So now I can have it all: great pictures, a hot new toy, and hopefully less shoulder pain :) The X100 and I got acquainted over Labor Day Weekend, and it looked something like this:

    Yay a new camera! It’s super awesome. The sand woman is creative too–loved it! And oh, just a casual stroll past the Friends building! :D
