Experimenting with in camera double exposure. Results are interesting. Seems to take a natural light image and turn it into a studio light like shot.

Jupiter Last Night

Image of Jupiter last night taken with the XF 100-400mm Fujinon lens on my X-T2. This is a hand held image because I sometimes don’t know any better but still get a shot. Click on the image to see it bigger. I have another image that I will post to give you an idea of Jupiter next to the Moon. Click on the image to view larger.

Pulled out all the stops last night with the XF 100-400 the XF 1.4 TC and my new Fujifilm X-T2. It was so humid last night I didn’t think I could keep the lens from fogging up but worked out pretty good.

Lens

XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR

XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR

I never really understood how good a lens can be until I bought these two “pro” lens. I shot each lens with the other lens and they are as sharp as I could want them to be. If you new to photography or have been at it a while. Get yourself the best glass you can for your camera system. It is not splurging if you get better pictures. By the way it is impossible to get all the dust of the outside of lens.
