F. Nietzsche: “I name you three metamorphoses of the spirit: how the spirit shall become a camel, and the camel a lion, and the lion at last a child”
1) Camel (DSLR): carry a lot of weight, stuck in old mental schemes and values.
2) Lion (MIRRORLESS): break your habits. Don’t be a slave of old conventions and values. Get rid of the weight, the “thou shalt”.
3) Child (FUJI X): have fun again, be free, and have a new look at… photography.
At the end of the metamorphoses we will experience “pure joy” with photography, like the little Sherpa in Richard Simko’s video (richardsimko.com/blog).
Personally, the X-series helped me to have fun again and rediscover photography (and therefore take better pictures). But, whatever is your way to reach the spirit of the child, be brave, and go for it.
And now travel… light, free and possibly X ;-)
P.S.: And pardon me for this rather unconventional post. It’s not a news, nor a rumor or a good deal… it’s just, I’m on holiday with a Nikon shooter (and an Olympus shooter), and when I saw him carrying his heavy gear on the beach, he really looked like a camel :-). So I had the idea of this post.
Nikon + one lens VS Fuji + two lenses
First evening of my holidays: the advantage to be able to see what you get in the X-E2’s EVF. My friend (Nikon shooter), still adjusting the exposure… FR already shared the shot on facebook. And to be clear, it’s not a dead rat the child is holding, just an umbrella ;-) .
