Everywhere I Go

3- (1)

Sam’s Mercantile, part of Mystic Falls Atrium, inside Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall, Las Vegas NV

Yes, I take my camera everywhere I go. That’s partially because it is so small lately, the Fuji X-T1. But it is a habit I started when I had my Canon T 2i. (And can someone tell me what the T stands for in these two cameras?) Anyway, we had just seen a matinee showing of the latest Mad Max film with my brother-in-law. We had no desire to see it but it was his birthday and he chose the film. The theater was inside Sam’s Town, which is a neighborhood casino as far from the strip as you can go and still be in Las Vegas. As we were leaving the casino, we entered the 25,000 square foot Mystic Falls Park Indoor Atrium. The above image was taken there. One of the first shots with my new Fuji.

        1. Basically image quality. There are maybe 4 people that use different Fujis and they were all very persuasive. No one who used Olympus seemed to be saying much but I did read about it in online reviews and it came out very good. It finally came down to price for me- and the fact that an online friend offered me his used Fuji lens for a very good price.

    1. Kath, get used to photos from Las Vegas because I am not on vacation. I live here! 🙂 Not my kind of movie, nor my kind of town. We are here because of family, and constantly complain of the heat. But the winters are great. Except I miss the snow.

      1. Hmm why did I think u had to travel to the photo event? (Scratching my head) lol . Yeah as much as I like heat .. I don’t know that I could handle that heat .. Although .. I’m hoping to spend at least my winters in Florida ;). I will NEVER EVER miss the SNOW 👍and that’s a fact jack 😘😉


  1. I see you went with the DSLR style Fuji mirrorless. I’ve carried the Fuji X-Pro1 with a 35mm ƒ/1.4 lens pretty much everywhere I can carry a camera since May 2, 2012 — you can see the first photos I took with it at https://photoofthedayetc.wordpress.com/2012/05/02/ah-giuseppe/. Before that I carried a Panasonic GF1 with a 20mm ƒ/2 lens beginning in spring of 2010. I loved the GF1, but it got damaged when I guy turned into me and the impact smashed the camera against the steering wheel and it knocked the lens elements out of alignment, and and messed up the focus. The guys insurance chose to pay for a new camera and the lens — I suppose it was a concession for me not suing them — the X-Pro1 had just came out.


      1. I really like the X-Pro1 as a carry camera, but it really doesn’t compare to my full-frame Canon with Canon L lenses.


          1. Not in the least. The X-Pro1 gets used for most street photography and some studio work, and anything where I need a fast lens (cats playing, etc.). I have a Canon 50mm ƒ/1.4, but I have to get it, change lenses, ect. so the X-Pro1 is always right there and convenient. Most everything else digital I use the Canon. I really don’t have problems with controls from one to the other. They are so different between the two cameras that I don’t really don’t have to think about them (it would be more of a problem if they were similar, but slightly different) — I go into X-Pro1 mode when I using it and automatically switch to Canon mode with the Canon.


              1. Just takes practice. But I do think it’s more difficult when the controls are similar, but different, between bodies and lenses. The controls on the X-Pro1 are really nothing like my Canon, so I don’t get surprised by differences in the similarities. Does that make sense?


                1. It makes absolute sense. Thanks. I’m still experimenting with where everything is so it’s going to take a while to start going between the two cameras. But, in going back through my archives, I’m continually surprised at the quality of the images form my Canon kit lens. So I will continue using it.

  2. I’m looking forward to seeing all your excursions with your new T1. I’m delighted with my little X30 that Joe recommended. In one year I’ve gone from occasionally carrying a camera to always having either my Olympus or Fuji with me.
