My tech tweet for class

Bacardi building, Santiago Cuba – Fuji Film Simulation Mode – ‘Vivid’

Let’s talk a bit of tech. Pro’s, students and amateurs always love talking tech. It’s a common thing to check out each other’s gear when a camera bag is around or to talk about a new product development.

What’s in my ‘fashionable’ giant camera bag? I am still giggling about the class comment my Crumpler looks like a giant purse … Awesome! Exactly why I bought it – it doesn’t scream out ‘camera bag’.  Depending on what kind of locations you frequent when you work or travel, that feature is worth considering.

Since I am sharing, and we are talking tech, these days my bag is packed with Fuji gear. Awhile ago I purchased a Fuji Xpro1. It’s a mirrorless camera.  It’s been a bit of a joke among some other teachers in the Photo Department at D.C., as we are a ‘Canon school’.  I like Canon, but my Fuji has some fun features like film simulation modes, the retro look and it’s smaller size compared with a dSLR is practical for some of the places I go.

Fuji announced the Xpro2 and it’s been trending quite a bit in recent weeks. Pre-ordering has started in Canada.  The camera seems to be getting good reviews and Fuji has added more film simulation modes. Conveniently  Henry’s recently sent their e-newsletter, announcing the camera will be available soon and they have a trade in offer. I am thinking about taking advantage of the deal next month before it expires.
