Fujifilm XP130


Thanks for dropping by. All clicks and comments very much appreciated. Smile

I like documentary and street photography, but a bit of anything else on the side. I tend not to use Photoshop too much, just sticking to the basic adjustments, but sometimes break free to try something "arty".

Thank you for visiting. I love seeing all your photos and hope you like mine.

I'm hoping to see some dolphins in Cardigan Bay soon so rather than risk my nice cameras with spray and wind, I got myself a cheap little waterproof/shockproof camera and have been giving it a try out this afternoon. It's the most basic camera I've used since my old Kodak box Brownie, but it's not bad. No bells or whistles at all and aperture and speed are both automatic. Anyway, for the price it's worth a try. Here's a few initial snaps. I've not tried it in water yet but I don't expect to be using it that way. I will try it when it's raining though as it's not easy to keep cameras dry and with this gadget it won't matter.

A Lovely Day in the Park

The day was lovely and fresh after the storms of the past week, and the air was clean and bright. Lots of families out in the park enjoying the cooler weather.

Messing with the Mirror

Thought I'd use my little Lumix 20mm lens for a bit, so just went around the house and garden snapping stuff. I did a selfie in my 3-way mirror so it's here, just for the record. Will try it on some street stuff soon - I'd forgotten how nice it is....

Just a record shot of one of my garden foxes showing its teeth. Didn't realise they were so big.

Wildlife in the Park

It was all happening in the park. The warm weather brought out a load of wildlife, most of which was moving too fast to snap, but I got a couple. The only slow things were some rather large terrapins who were parked on an unused coot's nest, sunbath...

There is nothing wrong with these cameras. I have 2 Fuji's from 2009 ($7 each) and just now a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1/ZX1 ($15) from the same year.
I am comparing my Fuji F100fd to this latest acquisition ZR1. Posting comparisons in my portfolio. May eventually switch to uploading photos
from the Lumix as opposed to the Fuji, as I have done so far. I know many on this site think that only expensive SLRs are worthy of taking
postable pictures on a photography website, but I tend to disagree. In fact a photo magazine in the 1960s asked Henri Cartier-Bresson to do some street photography with the
cheapest film camera they could provide him. The photos were marvelous.

Well I'm interested in giving it a go but in a rib chasing dolphins I'm not expecting miracles. Fun though. Smile

My Lumix even has an Underwater scene mode and housing !
The following is from a Web review of the camera.
