Copenhagen and an initial X70 assessment
Following on the recent travel series, here is a collection of pictures from Copenhagen, Denmark.
Although the time and day of my visit were not the best possible options (weather was almost always overcast with some sporadic showers) I managed to shoot plenty of photos; many of them will find their way to my other street photography projects as well.
All photos were shot with either the X-Pro2 and XF 56mm f/1.2 lens or the X70. And at this point I think it’s appropriate to write up a preliminary report for this little Fuji camera.
Having and shooting with it for quite a bit now, I can comfortably say that the X70 wins hands down in the way it manages to feel “natural” in everyday use. You can just carry it around anywhere and anytime; it barely takes more space than a modern smartphone or pack of cigarettes.
It also feels absolutely effortless in shooting, whether you go for an automatic mode, or utilize it as a “proper” camera. I feel that my decision to take it with me as a companion to the X-Pro2 was more than justified. In fact, I’d say it’s probably the perfect second camera to any X-mount primary gear one might have, especially if weight and bulk are considered. It goes without saying that the whole package, sensor, processor and lens, proudly continue the Fuji tradition and results are totally comparable with any pre-XPro2 Fuji camera.
A full X70 review, from a travel photography perspective, is coming in the following days, for the time being, please enjoy the photos:
