A few hours in Tokyo with the X-Pro1 | Andrew Hall
A few hours in Tokyo at the end of a Motorsport assignment at the iconic Mt Fuji Speedway gave me a chance to capture images of a small part of this vibrant city using the FUJIFILM X-Pro1. Those familiar with my Paris blog from earlier this year would already know that I consider the X-Pro1 to be the most versatile camera that I have ever used. With cutting edge sensor technology combined with class leading lens quality all in a beautifully built retro styled body, the X-Pro 1 is simply brilliant. The X-Pro1 has made me even more enthusiastic about my photography by enabling me to capture images in conditions that would cause other cameras to struggle. From an intersection of Neon covered buildings at night to a dimly lit underground train station the high ISO capabilities of the X-Pro 1 made it easy to capture unique images with the freedom of using the camera hand held without a tripod. I arrived in Tokyo in the afternoon and set out to explore with the X-Pro1 and the 18mm, 35mm and 60mm lenses.A visit to Tokyo Sky tower, a large spire with a viewing platform on top, was on the list but with a line stretching around the corner and a 2 hour wait a trip to the top would have to wait for next time! The 18mm lens allowed me to capture the tower against the skyline and I was using my favourite Black & White film simulation mode as usual! I always shoot RAW plus Jpeg files so I have the RAW file in colour if I decide to use it later on….
