An Evening In London

Had a great evening last night meeting up with my good friend and fellow photographer Parrish for some photography in London. Familiar places and images, for sure, but Parrish was kind enough to let me use his Fuji XT-10 for the majority of these shots so that I might try a different system. We chased the light and the lights, finding the sunset over St Paul's before crossing the Millennium Bridge to capture the city's colours from the other side. Not the most original shots but the low tide allowed us to descend onto the exposed river bank. Always something new to try and find on every shoot, it was another enjoyable evening with Parrish and I thank him for his generosity and company. The majority of these images were taken with the Fuji XT-10 and the Fuji 16-50mm F/3.5-5.6. The final three images were taken with the E-M5 and Samyang 7.5mm F/3.5 fisheye, and the last image demonstrates the difference in size between two Samyang lenses, one for DSLR and one for M4/3.Hopefully these images demonstrate that whatever system one uses images are made by creative composition and the good light.

What lovely images. I especially like the perspective of looking up. This makes me want to visit my son so we can walk around London together. Very nice!

Yet again the maestro strikes again. Some wonderful images Alpha and as always Its a pleasure to meet up and have a giggle while we try to portray the beauty of London's night lights.
Now it would be interesting to find out your thoughts of the XT10 in comparison with the EM5 ,, of course we know the sensors are a little different but in a body that's similar in size and technique similar though the omission of touch screen. Hands on user experiences are what most crave for , so your thoughts on these two cameras will be interesting.

Until next time my friend.

Thanks mate!
The XT-10 is a great little camera and fun to shoot with, although an easier way of changing the focus point and ISO would have made my shooting more efficient! I probably just wasn't aware of the shortcuts as I didn't spend much time going through the menus. The sensor is fantastic, though; some of these shot were ISO 3200 (including the last image of the lenses) and had virtually no noise. My E-M5's excellent in-body image stabiliser and touchscreen are a deal breaker for me as we discussed, and factor in so much of my shooting now that I wouldn't give them up. But the shooting experience is otherwise much the same, especially as both have the flip out screen; size and weight are so similar too. With a sharp prime on the Fuji I reckon it would make a neat street/night scene shooter and a great travel camera.
Thanks again for letting me have a play! Until next time indeed! :)
