Winter Mood

Winter mood by Jere Ketola on

Snowy days came after the year changed. Cannot believe it s already 2017. The time seems to fly by so fast. I have changed jobs in November and it seems life is mostly Work -travel to home -sleep -travel to work -Work in tempo. Rare moments outside with a camera can be truly precious.

Hope you are having a wonderful start to the new year!





A new week, new things to do. Hope you all have a nice an enjoyable week. Need to post more food stuff, has been more home cooking and sports and less restaurants for now, but I need to eat and post about new cafes and restaurants as well.

Still dreaming of the Fuji X -series and would love to test the new Olympus Ep-5 and even more the EM-1. A new camera is definately needed, especially one that could be carried around more and also one that need be less pro and less intimidating than the Canon and Nikon dslr types. Not that I don’t still love them but for my current shots a small system would be best.

Often times, I find myself on the fence. Whether to do something, or not. To buy a new camera for example. I know that I need to make the investment, but it is not so simple. There are lot of systems out there, and then there is the money factor as there always. Where is the money best spent etc.

Also the legacy of old cameras, old lenses make it difficult to totally jump into an entirely new brand. The needs of my photography would most likely best be served with two systems. Buying a newer version of the current manufacturer for the serious stuff/ birds. And buy a new lightweight system for the casual stuff as well as the food and the street shooting. Olympus, Fuji, Sony and Panasonic all would go very well into my needs in this department. The Fuji Xe-1 is the one I feel most drawn to, I love the design and the ergonomics. I also adore the colors this camera gives.

Olympus and Sony make smaller cameras, that seem to fit pretty well into my hands, but not as well as the Fuji.. Oh to have too much money so as to be able to buy and test all of them. Now it would be a decision to keep for a long time. I tend to not change cameras very often anyhow.
