I am the happy owner of a Fuji x100S

I did it. After reading all the possible reviews about this camera I decided to make the step and get it; let’s say an early Christmas present :). One of the main reasons I wanted this camera is the size. During the week I have no time at all to take photographs, mainly because I only get to leave the office after dark. I tried few times to take my camera (Nikon D5300 with 40mm lenses) with me but it’s just too heavy and big to be carried around. There is another important reason which I will discuss at a later stage, when I’ll (maybe) write about street photography. I bought the x100S yesterday, so I only had a day to figure out the menu; although not as difficult as I expected, not easy. A big THANK YOU to all the photographers out there in the blogosphere who make it easier for people like me to get more familiar with the camera. With the last extreme summer days being very humid and hot, I didn’t have many opportunities to test it today, but managed to get some shots.

The first three photos are taken at sunset in Dubai, the last three were taken in Abu Dhabi, during a visit to Qasr Al Husn Exhibition (a permanent museum situated next to the oldest building in Abu Dhabi, a fort built in 1793).
