Although the camera has been out for a while, I’d never actually used one until my one arrived. But as soon as I got the camera I immediately knew it was going to become my 27mm pancake lens camera option.
The 27mm is a lens I love to bits. It’s also a lens I’ve lost twice and I’m now on my third XF27mm lens and I suppose it’s a testament to just how small this lens is that I keep losing them!
I won’t be using the X-T10 as a wedding camera; for me, it’s not quite at the level I need for me to be comfortable shooting weddings with it.
However, it will likely be one of my backup cameras for weddings and it will definitely be a camera I take on my street photography trips out.
It really is a very discreet camera. Couple it with something like the 27mm lens and you can really just blend in and behave like anybody else with a small point & shoot camera.
These are just a few processed snaps from a day I spent in Southampton running one of my street photography workshops.
“I’m a huge fan of the 27mm lens and I think I’ve found the perfect compliment for it in the X-T10.”
I’ve recently been using a prototype of the new Camslinger Streetomatic which is an upgrade to the version I’ve been quite comfortable with for a while. The new bag is PERFECT for street photography. The clasp is better and yet it’s still possible to quickly remove the camera with one hand and start shooting. I used it with the X-T10 and 27mm lens. I had plenty of room for two spare lenses, my wallet, phone and notebook etc.
