A Fujiholics Story – Han Dekker

I’m Han Dekker, a Dutch street photographer based in Nijmegen. Nijmegen is a nice town, it’s the oldest town of the Netherlands.

I go out every day with my camera. After hauling around a huge Canon full-frame with L glass and battery grip for five years I saw a Fuji x100s.

I bought it – and for the first few days I would take that one instead of the Canon.

I liked the lack of weight and after six months I noticed a slightly dusted Canon.

So I sold the Canon gear and bought another Fuji, a X pro1 this time. It came with a zoom lens which I sold shortly after to buy an 18mm.

I have experimented with other lenses as well but the combi X Pro1 with 18mm suits me the best and that’s the one I take every day.

After a few years I found the lugs which hold the strap worn out so I had to take it to Fuji for repair.

I traded my X100s for a new X Pro1 body and since the first body came back from repair I now have two bodies – one with the beloved 18mm and one with a 27mm pancake.

During my years with my X Pro1 I have been an example for others, thanks to my love for the X Pro1 there are five other photographers working with an X Pro1 in my city.

I walk for an hour or two trough the city, the things I see I place the same day on my blog. It’s a diary.

Some days are good, other days are better.
