With the occasion of a shooting day with Alina in Rovinj, Croatia I had the opportunity to test three different types of equipment: the Fuji x100, the Samsung Nx200 with 30mm f/2 and the Olympus Pen Epl-3 with the 17mm f/2.8 lens.
Those three cameras are just part of the new revolution in the digital fields.
They let you shoot with a pocketable camera but still, you can get great results.
My intention was to test that camera for a portrait set. All of three were up to the tasks. I found the Fuji to has the better colors and lens, but the worst autofocus; a lot of picture shooted with Fuji X100 where totally with missed focus.
The Fuji shoots were “boosted” in colors and contrast by a circular polarizer filter in front of the Fuji lens. I had a really good feeling shooting with the Samsung Nx-200: is a really solid camera and the 30mm f/2 shines in sharpness and details.
Olympus camera gave average medium results: I really don’t like the plastic feel of the camera and the menu aren’t user-friendly.
I suggest you to give a look at the “Portraits” category: you can find other inspirational photosession shot in Italy and aboard with useful backstages, tips and suggestions!
