Say hi to my new camera-friend! For the last six months I have been considering getting a new camera, and not an analogue one. Honestly, this sudden yearning for something in the digital area was a little surprising. No matter how much I love and cherish film cameras and the whole process of waiting for a roll to be finished, getting it developed and scan the negatives, you can't deny the quick and at least almost instant pleasure of using a digital camera.
Last wednesday I finally made a decision and placed an order. I didn't want a new DSLR, I wanted something more compact with a fixed lens. I went for the Fuji x100s which I have had my eye on for quite a while. On monday it arrived. So far I'm really impressed with the image quality and the way it handles different lightsources and situations. Though, I haven't had a chance to properly try it out yet since there's absolutely no daylight left when I get home from work now. I did however manage to squeeze in a few quick frames yesterday morning before leaving for work:
The mandatory mirror self-portrait, Leia hanging out underneath the coats in our hallway and watching me putting on my shoes, and a snap of Leia's morning routine - during the night we close the door to our bedroom and the cats stay in the living room while we sleep. Each morning when I open the door Leia quickly runs inside and jumps onto the windowsill to drink from a glass of water Leo always puts there before going to sleep the previous night. I think she really likes to drink from glasses instead of her own bowl.
