I was lucky enough to be invited down to Townsville V8's this year and to do so in the air-conditioned Coopers Brewery corporate box directly above pit lane! I didn't specificaly go for photography so I took it a little easier than usual and took the opportunity to be a "tourist"...Although I am a Cairns photographer, I spent a large chunk of my life in Townsville, so it was also good to catch up with family.
In a few months I am off to Japan for a few weeks. This is purely a personal photography trip for me. So, I decided to try a lighter alternative in regards to camera gear for this trip. So I picked up the wonderful little retro Fuji XT-10 (Check it out here) also the 18-55 and the 55-200 lenses. I am still undecided on the 14mm Wide angle lens and might rent this lens for the trip.
I love night photography, especially when travelling. I have tried out the body and lens combo during the day. (I have been so busy this has been limited to shooting from my balcony whilst having a morning coffee) I am happy that during daylight, the Fuji XT-10 will produce fantastic image quality for the trip. But...
The deal breaker is this "Will the XT-10 perform at night and for long exposure photography?".
I had to head down to my local shopping centre the other night. This was the first opportunity I had to try out a night time long exposure. OK, OK so it's not the greatest location or subject but it gave me an idea on whether the XT-10 will cut it for the trip.
Short answer...Yes! I was more than happy with the quality and clean files that resulted. Pack your stuff Fuji. You'll be heading home soon!
