The Year of the X
That is: Fuji-X. This past spring I said good-bye to my DSLR's for good by selling all of my gear and buying two Fuji X-Pro 1 bodies, the tiny Fuji 28mm f/2 (equiv.), the stunning 50mm f/1.4 (equiv.) and the amazing 28-85mm f/2.8-4 (equiv.) zoom, and I couldn't be happier about my decision. My knees thank me. My back thanks me. My wallet thanks me. And most of all, the Fuji's make photography fun again. They not only produce beautiful files, but they also turn out the most amazing color I've ever seen from a digital camera (Hmm, I think Fuji's decades of making the best film in the world might have helped with that). Most of the 27 shots in the gallery below were shot with either the Fuji X-Pro 1 or the Fuji X100s. One color shot (man in water) came out of the Leica M9, and the rest were created using the always-reliable Nikon V1.
