This afternoon we took Hari and Shangkeree out into the country side outside of Kuala Lumpur to take their pre-wedding portraits. I was equipped with my Nikon gear (Oooo……. the weight builds up after shooting with these for so many years!) and also my trusty Fuji Xpro1 equipped with the 35mm f1.4. My shooting partner eyed it with great interest. He also shoots with a pro-Nikon body (D3s). Admittedly the speed of operation between these two cameras should not be compared as the D3 series is designed for sports and costs 3x as much as the Xpro1 . That said, the Fuji Xpro1 performed admirably and easily matched the D3 as far as image quality is concerned. One thing I have noticed on the Xpro1 is that it is really easy to hit the “Q” button instead of the focus button….grrr! I must send an email off to the Fuji engineers regarding this.
After the shoot was finished Hari surprised Shangkeree by bringing out the ring. Lovely!
