With no signal and no internet connection in Manila made me shoot the Black Nazarene procession yesterday. Quiapo church is just a few stones away from my studio but since communications were cut, I got bored and thought of shooting nearby the church. But one man said “Nasa Planetarium pa” which is probably a kilometer away, I headed there without hesitation. Armed with the Fuji x10 camera only, I didn’t hesitate the chaotic crowd and proceeded to the long walk.
It looks like Fujifilm is reserving its big announcement of this interchangeable camera dubbed the X-Pro 1. A banking site accidentally leaked it yesterday. It got some identical resemblance of the current serious compact the x10. We will know next week if this is just an imagination or a reality. I think its legit and I want one.
Fujifilm (yes still not digital) announced their 27 cameras for 2012 from the compact JZ100 to the more expensive bridge camera the HS30EXR. Nothing to get excited about since the rumored interchangeable APS-C x100-like design is nowhere to be found. Their press release.
The only interesting camera among the lot is the FinePix XP150 and XP100 because of its abuse-proof and GPS features.
