Sue and I planned our recent trip to New York City last November to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Once the reservations were booked I began to plan what I wanted to photograph, the gear I would take, and what I would ultimately blog about after the trip. I committed to only using my Fujifilm cameras, and to only use fixed focal lengths.
The day before we traveled I finalized my kit for the trip. The image below represents the kit that I traveled with and I would say it was near perfect for the trip. The only piece that isn't pictured is my bag, and I prefer a small Timbuk2 bag (timbuk2.com) with a camera insert. It holds all my gear, is easy to carry, and doesn't scream steal my camera bag.
When we arrived at the hotel, I left the iPad, battery chargers, and some other small accessories in the room. During our daily travels my bag contained both cameras, the extra lens (14mm), memory cards, extra batteries, camera strap, and the tripod. The X100s stayed in my vest pocket and the X-E2 was strapped to my back usually with the 35mm lens. Each night after a day of shooting, I usually posted 1 or 2 images for my family to view. I used my iPad and Photoshop Express to do some minor edits.
I am currently rating my images from the trip and determining what will be posted next in this series of New York Trip blogs posts. More to come....
