Road Trip with the Fuji X20

Recommended Posts

Mekeni

Went on a recent spring break trip with my family and below are some of the photos I shot using the Fuji x20. It was a nice break not to lug around my Nikon D7000 & 28-300 for a change. Indeed, based from the images I got, it maybe time to sell my gear and buy its big brother, the X100s. (All images are Fine-Med sized Jpegs, Astia Film Simulation, Program AE unless otherwise noted, Auto DR, NR 0 & Sharpened in LR)

Nice set. I like the "waiting for the bridge to fall down" and the "jumping off the pier?" shots particularly. They clearly demonstrate that it's the person pushing the shutter rather than the camera itself that makes great photos.

Glad you like them K1W1! You and Jimk22 got it right. The camera is only a tool and I know it's been said before, "The best camera is the one you got!". Having said that, I finally found a camera that is not only small enough to carry all day, it also delivers images that I don't have spend too much time editing to correct colors and exposure. The moment I saw the jpeg images from the Fuji X20, I finally understood what "Fuji colors" meant. Also, fill-flash from the camera's built in flash is just amazing... so balanced and the colors are just right.
