Last week I purchased a Fuji X-T1o as I wanted something a little smaller than the X-T1, but with interchangeable lens options, for my street photography.

Although the camera has been out for a while, I’d never actually used one until my one arrived.

I’ll do a bit more of a real-world review of the camera in due course but when 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.  Its also a lens I’ve lost twice and I’m now on my third XF27mm lens and I suppose its 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, its 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 with something like the 27mm lens you can really just blend in and behave like anybody else with a small point and 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 its 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.
