When was the last time that you printed a photo??? Nowadays it seems to be the trend to take a photo with a mobile phone, then only share it via Facebook or Instagram. The photo is only a temporary thing, shared then forgotten. Previously photos were printed out, then passed around at meetings of friends. Far easier to look at a printed photo instead of an image on a mobile phone or tablet. Photos printed out mean more. Much nice to look at a printed photo then a mobile phone screen. And photos will be treasured more than an image on a mobile phone screen for only a few seconds. Many of those images on a mobile phone will only last as long as the phone lasts, whereas photos that are printed out will last a long longer. And printing photos is fun too !!
Today’s photo was taken with the Fuji X-T20 camera and the Fuji XF 100-400mm lens. The quality of the lens is amazing, and with 5 stops of stabilisation, photos like this can be taken hand held. The lens is big and heavy (almost 1.4kg) but the quality of the photos speaks for itself.
and another photo….Lake Hawea on the South Island of New Zealand. An early morning photo….

Lucky to have got one of the first Fuji X-T20 cameras in New Zealand, and while many people are waiting for their orders, I have been trying out the new camera. Great new sensor (now 25.4mp) and also the ability to take 4K video (looks superb). It has been said that Fuji cameras make taking photos FUN again, and it seems to be true. Nice to have physical controls and also the ability to customize a lot of the menus and buttons to what you want. Having upgraded from the X-T10 then a lot of features on the X-T20 are similar, which makes using it much easier. Same batteries and same lens mount (X system) too, so again changing cameras was no big problem. A couple of photos of the Yellow-Eyed penguins, found on the South Island of New Zealand. For those who are interested, the photos were taken with the Fuji XF 100-400mm lens, hand held. As the light was fading fast (the penguins come ashore around sunset) then a much higher ISO was used than is normal.
and another of the penguins, taken the same day….
