It’s been three weeks since I’ve been observing and recording this striking bird. The sun is about to set as I scout the barn’s roof for any sign of the Little Owl. Uniformly placed on top of the roof-tiles are large stones, which have been placed there to keep the tiles in place when the northerlies are blowing strong. The Little Owl knows that the stones are similar to it, both in size and colour, explaining why it often sits still on the roof without drawing attention during the morning and evening hours when the sun is still low on the horizon.
After 10 months of shooting reportage, portraits, weddings, street, fashion, concerts, wildlife, lightning, landscapes, kids and other events I think it’s time that I passed on my experiences and feelings about the revolutionary Fujifilm X-T1.
Fujifilm X-T1 Review
NOTE 31/12/2014: This article has been updated here
My X-T1 combined with a smartphone or iPhone that has Fujifilm’s free app “Camera Remote” installed becomes lethal for some street photography scenarios as well as some wildlife situations. I can pretty much control most aspects of the camera except for exposures longer than 30sec. It took me a little while to figure out, but once you know the basics, it becomes real easy to use.
