Burmese boat-man

On Inle Lake we went through some of the floating villages, but the water was very low. In the narrow channel our small boat, and this man’s, both got stuck. I took the shot while he was trying to separate us. I was using the little Fuji X20. This is a great small camera. The lens is 28-112 (35mm equivalent) with a manual zoom – much better than the slower lever systems on most compacts. It also has a viewfinder and a dial for +/- 2 stops EV. It’s a great travel camera. I used this and an X-M1 together with X100. For two weeks in Vietnam/Cambodia I took just the X20 and X100 and on neither trip did I wish I had a DSLR. These small Fujis are so much lighter, so you take them with you. When it is so hot the big DSLR is a hindrance. It’s true what they say, “the best camera is the one you have with you”, and the X20 fits the bill.
