NYC with the X100T Wcl-x100 & Tcl-x100

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I just got back from a quick trip to the Bigapple

I settled on my Fujifilm X100T which has a fixed 23mm f/2 lens(35mm equiv) along with the Wide angle conversation lens Wcl-X100 and the Tele photo conversation lens Tcl-X100. This simple kit not only inspired me to see things differently but also made it a lot more exciting trying to capture the essence of the city. 

 

Would love for you guys to check out my shots in my blog link below.  thanks for looking!

There are some very nice pictures on your website.

I do think there is some repetition that would benefit from a smaller selection of photos (e.g. there are 3 photos looking out from a glass fronted building, there are several very similar looking at the Empire State Building), so viewers get to see the ones you think are "best". 

It is also a pity that the weather when you visited central park wasn't very conducive to outdoor photography (grey skies etc) - it's always frustrating as on short trips there isn't much you can do, but perhaps consider a black and white treatment, or perhaps shooting in a different way to avoid the weather and grey skies?

There were a few that I thought were a little weak (big concrete block dominating the frame in the photo of the Lamborghini) or perhaps didn't really belong as a "set" (dog on the subway).

I hope you won't take his negatively, there are some really good photos there, but I think they would have much more impact with a tighter selection, and bring out the vibrancy you were trying to convey.

Excellent pictures - no poor ones at all but some are inevitably better or more striking than others. As Artuk says, while you'll obviously keep them all they do need thinning out to a selection of the very best in a manageable length of slide show. This keeps viewers attention fresh and maybe leaves them wanting more instead of tiring of hitting the next button.

I envy your trip to NYC with your X100 . You have some great street photography. I agree with you about your camera choice for street photography, the X100 series Fuji cameras can't be beat.

      I've had my X100T for about 15 months now and I love it. However, today the on/off switch decided to stop working. The battery is fully charged and the camera did switch on once after I discovered the problem but I have not been able to switch on again since. Has anyone else had any similar problems, or any ideas on how to remedy this?
      And to complicate matters I'm in Brazil at the moment where Fuji cameras are not common at all - and all electronic equipment is extremely expensive.
      Thanks.

      A nice misty morning walk on the beach. Wishing I was there right now.

      Howdy fellow X100 users..
      I currently own a X100t and I was curious to know if any of you who have shot with the cameras that have the Acros simulation have been able to replicate the same type of image style just by adjusting the settings on the X100t? 
       
      If so or if this is even possible would you be willing to share those settings? 
      thanks!
