I finally took the plunge into the world of large sensor MIRRORLESS and bought a Fujifilm XT-2 with 2 lenses. My beloved Nikon D-800 had to go to make way for the Fuji. But I am not over with NIKON yet as I am closely watching what NIKON comes up with in their 100th anniversary year. I am not here to compare NIKON with FUJI as both has their advantages and disadvantages, But when it comes to a small set up with premium quality prime lenses, FUJI is definitely a big player.
I had the opportunity to visit Nagaland during their annual Hornbill Festival Last December. Here are some photographs taken with the FUJI and the Fujinon XF 35mm 2 WR.
Unlike SONY and OLYMPUS, the FUJI is easy to use with simple straight forward controls and it is a joy to handle the camera. AF with the 35mm lens is instantaneous and colors are vibrant and pleasing. And their color simulations like VELVIA and CLASSIC CHROME are brilliant. Please click on any of the images to view more details.
Nagaland is a hilly state in North-eastern India with Kohima being its capital and Dimapur its largest town. Nagaland populace comprises of 17 major tribes and each of these tribes is unique in character with its own distinct customs, language, heritage and dress. English and Christianity are the 2 common threads among others that bind all these tribes together. Hornbill Festival is celebrated each year during December 1 to 10 to showcase culture of all the various tribes. For more information on Hornbill Festival, please click this link.
I am extremely happy with the performance of the FUJI XT-2 and its combination with the Fuji 35mm give you a very compact and reliable set up, reminiscent of the old Nikon FM-2 and 50mm lens. I have more photographs from Nagaland and hope to upload them in this blog soon.Till then, so long.
