Some time ago, the husband showed me a photo of the ‘to-be-unveiled-in-2011’ Fujifilm Finepix X100 and tried tempting me into waiting for one when I was looking to purchase a semi-pro compact camera as a back-up to my trusty DSLR.
I gawked at the photo for a good few seconds, before telling him that I wouldn’t mind considering it solely for its good looks but couldn’t wait for another 6 months because I wanted to ensure that we did have a back-up camera for our 3-weeks Japan trip in Dec.
Fast forward 5 months later, I saw someone post a photo of this beauty on his Facebook Wall last evening and couldn’t help but click on the photo and admired it for a while. I even went on to read reviews of the camera (what was I thinking), short of going to eBay to click ‘buy’.
I didn’t, because I found out that the battery life along with other knacks of the camera such as response time, screen display especially when attempting street or kids photography was lacking at least in my needs. I am quite the impatient shooter. I need to everything to respond quickly, to makeup for my clumsy hands and feet.
But as I looked at the beauty more, I entertained another thought. Maybe if I could train myself to be more technically savvy with the camera, I could make up for the camera’s slower response time…no?
Definitely something I’d be considering for a while.
