Over the last two days we have spent our time learning the nuances of Buenos Aires – the Recolata, Palemero (Soho & Hollywood) and surrounding barrios. Like Paris, Rome, London & Istanbul it is busy, complex and has neighborhoods where you want to be… and others where you shouldn’t. Shooting with the Fuji x100 affords you the ability to capture raw images with a full size sensor and details that allow pixel pushing in Lightroom – not your average P&S. The iso performance rivals nikon in some situations, but the dreaded shutter lag (x100 vs X-Pro 1) is a constant reminder of areas that need improvement. All images were shot in manual, which is a “must have” option of the x100. The best part – a completely silent shutter that affords image capture even during the opening winter (southern hemisphere) ballet at the Teatro Colon… more to come. I do not think this is a Leica killer by any means, but is a reasonable rival based upon the bang for your investment.
The first image was shot in the Recolata cemetery.
Captured with: Fuji x100 @ 35mm, f/2.0, ISO 2500-3200. All images with ambient light, no flash.
