Engine Room | X-PRO1 + X2

I’ve been cooped up these past few days, doing all the peripheral messing around that surrounds a photography business. The stuff where you don’t get to take pictures. I get itchy when I don’t take pictures. You wouldn’t like me when I’m itchy…

So this afternoon I took a break and walked around that room in the house where we never spend any time. The one with the furnace and the mess of things we don’t use everyday but keep around for some reason. The next season, a camping trip, the kids getting married. Just in case you know?

I used the X-Pro1 and an Eye-Fi Pro X2 card I got recently for a job. I needed a way to shoot tethered and this was the only way to do it. It works, although it has a tendency to seriously slow down at times and I haven’t yet figured out the reason. Shooting RAW brings it to its knees but the files do get there eventually. Today it worked like a charm: I was shooting monochrome jpegs and using Lightroom’s Auto Import watch folder — the pictures were all waiting for me, ready to be edited by the time I sat down at the iMac. Cool.

Before leaving I’d like to thank everyone for the support we’ve been getting on the Kage Collective project. It’s been extremely encouraging and we all appreciate it immensely. There’s a lot more to come on this front so I’ll keep you posted.

Have a great weekend — and a (belated) Happy Thanksgiving to our american friends :)
