heart and mind

Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera.

So did I mention I bought a new camera? I recently bought the Fuji XT-1 which is about half the size and weight of my Nikon D7000 even though it has the same sized sensor. It achieves this smaller form because it is 'mirrorless' with no mirror to flip up each time I take a shot.  Its retro looks and old style controls have gotten a lot of attention lately. I'm thrilled with it in terms of its compactness, ergonomics and most importantly, image quality. This was taken at Tipton-Haynes Historic Site in Johnson City, TN after sundown with the small 'pancake' lens (27mm) you see mounted on the camera above at ISO 2500.  If you look back a few days on the blog, the last five entries have photos taken with this camera (starting with 'Twilight').
