I have been busy the last three days with making a short film with two guys from London in Liverpool can’t go in to too much detail but the GFX was involved.

I cant share images from the film but did manage to grab a few shots during the filming over the last few days.

I decided to only use the 63mm f/2.8 over the last three days and make myself work for my shots. I am yet again blown away by this camera ! I might have to take back all I have said about being to big to shoot Street ! Its not the smallest camera in the world and even with the shutter sound turned off it sounds like and old fashioned film camera but no one seems to notice !

I did how ever get some looks from staff when I entered some of the buildings in Liverpool and I have never had that before ! One even said now Filming in here you know !! That was a first for me so I had to explain it was a stills camera !

As you have probably noticed this is no way a technical look at the GFX, I dont ever feel the need to give you all that information there are people far better than me to google to get tec reviews.

Shooting the Albert Dock at night at 12800 ISO (ISO set to Auto) was very interesting ! I still can’t believe I was walking around in the dark even after the blue hour shooting hand held in very dim light and still looking for shots.

This is one very versatile and incredible piece of kit.

I am just just about getting used to its size and weight now, and starting to work out how to handle the camera in the Streets. The menu is a breeze as it’s the same as the other X Series cameras.

I am hoping to get out tomorow in to town and give some street a go with the Zoom and the 63mm and see what I prefer ! I am not a Zoom kind of guy but on the GFX its growing on me.

    Hi Matthew, enjoyed reading your blog, it is a bit shocking that people pay to go on workshops but not to learn! There’s a Bible proverb about that. Enjoy your semi-retirement,
