Sunrise at the Beach

The summer isn’t complete without getting up early one morning and trundling down to the beach to catch the sunrise. More postcard clichés for your delectation!

It was a real pleasure shooting the sunrise this year with my Fuji XT-1 and meFoto tripod. The camera made it a dream to adjust shutter-speed, aperture and exposure compensation, to manually focus precisely using the focus peaking feature, align shots with auto level indicator and instantly adjusting the tripod with the ball-head controls. Everything fell to hand easily. A pleasure.

    • I do follow it but I admit to not looking terribly often. I will say, while they do have their few faults and weaknesses, in general it’s been years since I worked with cameras and lenses I enjoyed so much or found so easy to use and do the things I want to as the Fujis, a brand that years ago I would probably never have considered.


      • That is interesting. I have a little Fuji FinePix (a big girl camera for me one day…) and I enjoy it. Fuji film was all I used years ago when I bought my first Pentax camera. I so loved that camera…
