You probably realise by now that I love my cameras.  At the last count I think I had about a dozen…

There are 3 that I use day in day out.  The Nikon D3S for pretty much everything, the D3 as a second camera when I need two and the Hasselblad H3D-II for high end portraiture, fashion and babies.

But there’s always room for one more.  So when I heard it was possible to get hold of a Fuji IS-Pro at a realistic price I jumped at the chance.  This was a special model of the Fuji S5 made for military and law enforcement purposes which sees far beyond human vision into infra red and ultra violet.  I had to fill out forms and make certain promises to Fuji to even be allowed to buy one.  (Including that I wouldn’t use it for the creation of weapons of mass destruction.  For real.)

But it’s going to be a lot of fun.  The documentation says clearly all kinds of filters and special processing you need to use with it.  But of course I didn’t have any of those.  So I just whacked a macro lens on it and went out into the garden.  Above it one of the beautiful lilac flowers in our border.

In time I’ll learn to use it properly for specialist portraiture.  And I might even buy the filters.  But for now it’s playtime.
