The Originators’ Northern Soul & the Fujifilm X-System

The Originators are a Dutch Northern Soul band from the Amsterdam-Utrecht area. Actually they are one of a very limited number of live-bands working that musical field today.

Back in June I had the opportunity to see them live on stage for my very first time and thought it might be a good opportunity to check out the super-low-light-gig-shooting abilities of the X-Pro 1 and and X-T1. To cut a long story short, it was worth every penny. I mean both, the admittance for the concert as well as the big bucks I’ve spent for the photo gear during the last months. Well, as to the second point I knew that before already.

The Originators are an eleven-strong bunch of highly gifted and professional musicians and they are performing a real strong show on stage. Personally I would always classify the gig amongst my favourite top ten of the last years. So, if you have the chance go and see them, I’m sure you won’t regret.

Finally, for the gear-heads: hardware for the evening was Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-T1, Fujinon XF 18mm F2, XF 35mm F1.4, XF 56mm F1.2, XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 as well as Zeiss Touit 2.8/12mm.
