Fujifilm's X-T2 goes to the Airshow

On assignment with Fujifilm's latest offering - the X-T2 and the 100-400mm and the 10-24mm lens.

This was the return of an Airshow back to the London, Ontario Canada area in 8 or 12 years depending if you count flyins as airshows. For an airshow in Ontario - this one has the most military aircraft I have ever seen. Four CF-18s, Three F-15s, Four F-16s, Two F-22s, Two E-2s, One B-1 Lancer, One Hercules, Nine Snowbirds, One P-8, One KC-135, One RC-135 plus all the private warbirds. Not a show to be missed!

An amazing airshow.

I have to thank Fujifilm Canada for providing me with their latest flagship camera along with their longest zoom lens - XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR for an assignment at Airshow London this past weekend.

X-Pro2 goes to the Pillow Fight day

This was one of my last assignments with the X-Pro2.

I wanted to try a little action photography with the Fuji X-Pro2. Not exactly what it was made for but I wanted to test it out.

The annual Pillow Fight Day is put on by the folks at Newmindspace but I am not really sure if they are really the organizers as its more like a call to assemble at a certain location with your pillows vs. an organized event with city permits, security and insurance coverage...
