Prime Lenses vs Zoom Lenses

I thought about writing an article on this topic; it is a very important question, especially when traveling. You feel like you need to be prepared, never miss an important moment. What to do? Travel light and feel free to walk all day long and deal with the limitations imposed by your lenses (or the only lens you have – like traveling with Fujifilm X100S – an experience explained in a previous post), or get the whole artillery and carry every lens, hoping you will have the best image quality, delivered by the right lens for the right situation?

I have traveled to the Sunrise Country with both prime and zoom lenses, wanting to be fully prepared for my documentary photographs. Those lenses are simply tools in the process of capturing glimpses of reality. My opinion can be read here.

Enjoy it!

My “kind of review” for Fujifilm X100S

I have this Fuji X100S – the camera I used for the very first time when putting my first step on the Sunrise Country. I love it, it’s compact and it delivers great image quality. It felt the perfect companion when exploring the streets of Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo. And every time I use it, beautiful memories from the Sunrise Country keep coming back to me. So I thought it might be cool to share with you my impressions, as a travel photographer, about this little marvel of technology and elegance. Here it is, the review :
