Turn Island Textures and New Camera Gear

I’ve got all new camera gear this year. I traded my Nikons (my D7100 travel camera and my D700 studio camera) for two Fuji X-T2 bodies and a variety of Fuji lenses, and I upgraded my little Fuji X100S to a Fuji X100F. So far, I’m extremely pleased with ALL OF IT. I had three photo shoots at my Portland studio before we left and the quality of the RAW files seemed loads better than from my Nikon D700, needing very little post processing work compared to what the Nikon files needed. We even shot a (4K!) video in the studio using both X-T2s for dual camera angles of an actor discussing his role in a Portland Playhouse production of The Language Archive.

Anyway, I’m very happy with the new gear.

For those of you who might want to geek out on the camera stuff (like me), here’s what I’ve got:

Two Fuji X-T2 bodies (one black, one silver, including vertical grip that holds two additional batteries), one Fuji X100F (with fixed 23mm lens). Fuji lenses: 10-24mm f4 OIS (image stabilization), 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 WR OIS (weather resistant and with image stabilization), 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 WR OIS (not shown because it’s huge and wouldn’t fit in this photo). I also have a 35mm f1.4 and a 56mm f1.2 but left the primes at home, since I have the range covered with zooms and for landscape/nature/stuff from a boat I figured I could carry a few less camera things and get by.

So there you have it!
