My ramblings yesterday has made me think quite a lot lately about my current camera equipment. One thing that has really surprised me about this project is that I really like the simplicity of having one camera, one lens and nothing else to think about. It has really taken me back to the core of photography, and it's teaching me not to get hung up on what camera to bring, and which lenses should I pack.
I really want to change my digital camera equipment. At the moment, I have the Fuji X-T2 and X-T1 bodies, and four Fuji X lenses. One of them I can't even remember the last time I picked it up (the 18-55mm kit lens), in fact I'd struggle to think where in the house I've put it! I don't want to give up on digital, I think with the amount I travel, and the frequent opportunities I have to shoot, it would be a real hassle to shoot only film - even though I still really like the challenge of shooting film itself. But I think I would really like to go back to basics......one body, one lens.....that's it.
There are too many occasions where I deliberate with myself on which to bring. Do I bring both Fuji bodies with me? Which lenses do I take?! And when I have all of that gear with me, I'm constantly thinking which set-up should I be shooting with right now. I think it really distracts me, and that's what this project has awoken me to.
I had a great time in Riga when I just started shooting film, and the only camera I took on the trip was the Olympus and a 50mm lens. Granted that is my film camera, but I think I would have a much better time if I had the same setup in digital.
So which digital camera?! Oh man.....that thought process can wait for now!
On a different note, I did another FTP test this morning and I set a new PB. 363W average over 20 minutes. That hurt!!
