#571. The Monday Post (20 March 2017)
Big news! The Holga is being re-introduced.
There. That’s as much news value as I can possibly wring from that. If blurry film images are your thing, I’m sure you’ll be delighted.
Slow week this week. We’re in the UK catching up with the family we didn’t see over Xmas. So, a shortie this week. I’m sure normal(?) service will resume next week.
Out of the blue, I sold my Fuji X100T last week. The buyer deposited the money into my bank so quickly that I thought I’d set the price too low, but it was already too late for that; it was gone. Hmmm.
Good move or not, I wondered? Were the planets in alignment and was it time to see if I could find an X100F to replace it?
I could. I did and it works like a charm – as expected.
I won’t bore you with specs, unboxing or the short(ish) set up. I’ve owned one before and for me there were just two items that had become critical: the 24mp sensor – as I crop many of my images into a square and some additional pixels would be most welcome. The second is Fuji’s Acros creamy black and white emulation.
This is what an initial run and lots of muscle memory have got me so far.
Oh yes. Nearly forgot; I’m over the moon with it.
