So, my quest for a lighter camera has begun.
The Nikon D700 and D800 and trinity of 2.8 lenses have caused me to have a long and rewarding relationship with my chiropractor. That’s rewarding for them and not me.
Adding to the kit some battery grips an SB900 flash and thats a large lump of kilos to be lugging around.
I’ve been using a Fuji X100 for around a year. I didn’t like it. It was a grower and now I love how it slows me down. I have been reading about the XPro1 and when I heard that the XE1 was fundamentally the same if not slightly better I jumped.
It came snuggled up to an 18-55 zoom which a 14mm prime has not created what I think will be the perfect threesome.
Slight panic when my pocket wizards failed to ignite the SB900’s. Bit of relaxation when the Elinchrom triggers and studio heads worked like a dream.
I’m looking forward to the next few days of fun, experimentation and frolics with the new kit.
