New Gallery of Street Work Posted on Tmaxphoto.com

Go here to look at my new gallery of pictures taken on a recent trip to New York, London, and Paris. I photographed exclusively with the  Fuji X Pro-1, leaving my entire Canon 5D MK III system sitting at home. In the past I have always traveled with my entire system(s), only selecting what I will use upon arrival. The result had always been I shot 90% of the time with a basic rangefinder setup, and left the bulk of my stuff in the hotel. I went out on a limb this time and brought just the Fuji X Pro-1 along on the trip. Will I do it again, and leave my Canon cannons at home? I'm not really sure. Then truth is as much as I love the Fuji X Pro-1, many a shot was lost because the camera is just not fast enough. Either the camera had to wake up, couldn't catch focus, or it just plain lagged. When I was firing away it performed fine, but when I was "inactive" for any period it seemed like the "half press" involved a half a lifetime as the subject I was photographing turned away as the camera shook off the cobwebs. I have played with various settings, but in the end I couldn't get the little bugger up to speed in time. The trade off was I was able to photograph discreetly and quietly in places where the Canon 5D MK III would attract attention. So long as the battery hadn't gone dead.
