|Fuji GFX100II - 30 November 2023
Today I went to an interesting photographic function hosted by Jeff Gin's Kerrisdale Camera Ltd and Fujifilm Canada at the Film Works Studio Company. We photographers were invited to try out a GFX100II camera that is 104 Megapixels larger than a “full frame" 35 mm format. It can also record 8K video.
The studio had a large white cove and all kinds of lights that were made ready for our use. In another room there was a handsome male model with books behind him. I opted for the lovely English Hannah.
I was able to use a camera much larger than mine. I went for
my recent idea of only taking one photo. I was helped, as I am much too old to
adapt for a camera that is much more complex than my Fuji X-E3. The picture here did not in any way tax the camera in doing what it is capable of. I attempted to imitate some of the pictures that I shoot with my X-E3 where I purposely underexpose.
One of - featuring Jeff Gin who some years ago got me into my first digital camera a fab Fuji X-E1. Now it is my backup for my X-E3 that I used today.
This did not stop me from taking a snap of Hannah by a mirror in my selfie tradition. When she was posing for another photographer I was able to take some spy shots with my noiseless digital shutter. The pictures you see here I exposed at ½ second while moving my camera from up to down.
There was lots of good food and drink. Talking to other photographers was the best part.
