Berlin through a Fuji X20.

Some weeks ago i posted concert pictures form ‘The Cure’ playing at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Berlin. I used my newest camera a Fuji X20 which i bought for the occasion.

Nice small camera which i also carried with me walking the streets of Berlin the 2 days we didn’t went away for urban exploration. We roamed the streets of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg.

In this blog entry you will see a series shot with the X20 processed in Adobe’s CameraRaw. I am happy with the look of the photo’s, they have a nice color rendition and are sharp enough. Just do not go pixel peeping. That is a lost cause compared to the full frame Sony. But still, i like the X20 and will keep it!

Dickens.

Saturday December the 18th my daughter and i visited ”Dickens Festijn” in Deventer. This is a yearly returning event and a lot of spectators from the Netherlands but also surrounding countries like Belgium and Germany visit. Crowded, well yes. 150.000 people over the days you can visit. This meant we had to wait for an hour and a half before we could enter and photography was difficult, everybody wants the prime spot to watch!

Above a series converted to black and white. I used Adobe Camera raw for the processing of the two series. Two days before this event i acquired a Olympus M.Zuiko ED 60mm 2.8 Macro. I read in reviews this lens was also useful as a portrait lens so i only used this one. I immediately fell in love with this lens, wide open rendering and sharpness is on high level, a very good purchase to accompany my E-M10 MK2. Below a series processed in color.

Hope it was fun reading and watching!
