Welcome to Fujikina

Last week I went for a couple of days to Photokina in Cologne, Germany. I got invited by Fujifilm who organized a small party on Thursday evening, but provided as well as a small lounge on their booth which was meant to be a meeting place for all the X-Photographer that made to Cologne this year.

Needless to say that I was very happy for this opportunity to finally meet some of the other X-Photographers in person and exchange some thoughts and ideas with them.

Some of the X-Photographers were giving presentations about their work, some others practical demonstrations on the Fujifilm booth and all of us were after the object of desire, the new GFX system with the new Fujifilm GFX 50S mirrorless medium format camera. And yes, we got our hands on it and could experience it first hand…

Thank you Fujifilm. especially Kunio, for providing us with this possibility!

I leave you with a couple of impressions from both booth and party…
