As I prepare to post my review, I thought I would share a couple photos. I love how my original TCL-x100 Teleconverter looks on my new x100F. I had originally purchased it with my black x100S, but I think I actually like this look better. I’ve now owned every x100 and the love affair just keeps growing with this camera.

This past July  my daughter and I decided on a whim to take a trip to Tokyo for a few days. She was out of school for the summer and it was perfect for some quality father daughter time. It’s been two years since our last trip. Scary how fast time goes by. On my last trip to Tokyo I had just bought the x100T and was testing it out.

One of my favorite things to do here is walking the back streets and alleys with my camera. This is a side street near the covered mall in Naha. I shot this with my Fuji x100t.

Gordy's Cafe in Kadena Town. Best burgers on Okinawa.  Fired this one off remotely using the Fuji app on my iPhone while my X100T was sitting on the table.

Photo of the Day - Friendly Faces

Japanese can be funny about having their photo taken. Oftentimes they object with a hand waving motion in front of their face, and yet other times they are very friendly and have no problem at all smiling for the camera. These girls were with a large group of young people in Naha celebrating Coming of Age Day this past January, and were happy to pose for me.

This is a shot I took a while back with my Fuji X-Pro1 and 56mm f/1.2 lens of a traditional Okinawan dancer performance. Shot at f/1.2 it shows the really nice bokeh the Fuji 56mm delivers. I love the Fuji colors too.

Creating a How to Food Video using an iPhone 6s Plus

A friend and co-worker recently gave me some red potatoes that she had purchased at the farmers market here in Okinawa. We both like to cook and frequently talk about cooking. As a thank you to her for the potatoes I decided to make a video on what I cooked with them. It then occurred to me that this would be a good "how to" video on shooting cooking videos with your iPhone. So if your interested in that, or just want to see what I cooked check out the video below and please subscribe to my channel if you like it.
