14 Aug Two “Fuji X Sisters” for a Rock Concert

Source: Fuji Love


I started shooting live shows, rock festivals in particular, and theater performances with a Canon 1100D and a Sony Alpha 3000. When I bought the Fuji X30 I discovered a different approach to this kind of live events.

Suddenly, me and my camera became invisible! No one was concerned with us anymore. A small camera does not look dangerous in the eyes of security and promoters, does it? The X30 hits like a shark: speed of shutter is a deadly weapon.

I recently added a Fuji X-M1 with a 27mm f2.8 lens in my bag. X-M1 almost has the same “invisible” size of my “old” X30.

The first chance to test the two “X Sisters” together was the concert of post-grunge singer and guitarist Kurt Vile at the Triennale in Milan, on July 11, 2017, among the first events of the TRIP Music Festival.

These were my setting mood for the evening:

– X30: P and S mode; b&w + red filter and STD/Provia; ISO 200; exposure compensation -1 and -1 1/3; sharpness +2

– X-M1: P mode; STD/Provia; ISO 100; exposure compensation -2/3; sharpness +2

(The ISO range between 100 and 200, typical for daytime shots, is my choice to obtain frames with no noise and no grain)
