Fuji X-H1 with Neewer 25mm f/1.8 X-mount lens. I paid $55 for this manual focus, manual aperture jewel. Stop it down to at least f/5.6 and it is fine; f/8 here. Does it have flare, you bet? Don't get the sun near the FOV. Makes for a very compact, light weight rig. Just have to resurrect skills from 45 years ago.

I went out to shoot with my venerable Canon EOS 60D's yesterday, using the 18-55 and 55-250 kit lenses. I do that from time to time to remind myself that it's more about the technique than the tech - although the latter certainly helps. Intending to shoot scenes of the run-up to Christmas, I stumbled into a fantastic exposition of Maori art at the Auckland Art Gallery. This included an amazing modern dance performance and I tried to get a few shots of the action that included both modern and traditional Maori elements. Here are the first two:

At the same venue, these were taken with my other 60D and the 18-55.

Well, when it comes to using old cameras and lenses I don't have a patch on this venerable gentleman from Afghanistan:

I like his wish for the world, expressed at the end of the video.

Found a nicely-priced used EF-S 18-135mm nano-USM to fill a 'gap' in my camera bag, and so far I am moderately impressed...
