And, despite the title of this post, you decided to check this video out anyway? Well, then I should at least tell you what you can expect, to convince you not to look at it.
But first off a question: what do strephers like about the compact X-series and its great IQ? I guess you know the answer: especially with the silent ninja shutter of the X100S, nobody will notice that you are taking a picture of them.
Well, this video is just about an unconventional way to approach the subtle art of street photography.
Discrete street photography is not really what Mikel Patrick Avery did. In fact, he put a sign next to his X-series cameras and wrote DO NOT LOOK HERE on it. The result can be seen in the video above.
As Mikel Patrick Avery said to me: “There is a new vid posted today of X System in NYC –Though you might enjoy. -If so, feel free to post on your site if you like. -If you do not like it, please lie and tell me you do..haha. here is the link. I used e1 e2 and pro 1 for the images, the e1 and e2 are the ones used in the video. Lenses are: Voigtlander 21mm f4 & Olympus pen f 20mm f3.5.”
P.S.: DO NOT READ THESE REVIEWS: – Ken Rockwell published the X-T1 review: “the T-X1 combines great handling with exceptional construction quality, all at a reasonable price, and can produce outstanding images if you’re talented, and sometimes even if you’re not.” He also posted the 56mm 1.2 review here: “The Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 ASPH is optically just about perfect, excelling at sharpness, falloff and distortion, as well as mechanical quality.”
