BLACK DIAMOND FROM THE DARK AGES
on 8 January 2017
This is a tiny camera - because it looks like a REAL CAMERA you may not realise how small it really is from the measurements. There should be a rubber grip on the rear for the thumb and the seller's description failed to mention this was missing. I am not too bothered by this as I have fitted a thumb grip in the hot shoe and intend to add a wooden extended grip to the front as I have rather long fingers. There are a lot of things I am learning about this camera - the manual is extensive but hard to take in. The on screen menus are extensive but sometimes cryptic. I bought a Fuji lens hood to go on it and this obscures about a fifth of the area on the viewfinder but the viewfinder is very clear and bright and the hood is not in view at the 112mm zoom setting. for me it is worth having so I am not forever checking for flare. I may file the slots in the hood wider to give a better see through I bought two new batteries of a larger capacity than the rather beat up ones it came with . The charger works well and is so small it fits in the camera bag. I have not found my forever bag for this camera yet the canon bag I am using is very nice but not suitable for a quick draw through the top from a shoulder holster position. I did not like the Fuji leather strap and am using a woven textile one - though small it weighs enough to need a neck strap and of all carrying positions I think this is better than in a pocket or in the hand. This is a camera for people who used SLR and Rangefinder cameras and in most cases one you understand it C1 and C2 programs can be configured for day and night shooting with as many manual adjustments as you like . Or set it on Program and just shoot. The 32GB SanDisk memory card I bought will hold 6000 JPegs. I will confess to have not tried RAW yet but I envision this will be for tripod and B&W work . Colour in High rez often looks unreal and without atmosphere. For the money this is a very good camea and I have not even tried the Movie function except to see if it works .It does.
