Comments Off on Tokyo at Night: Remote Mounted FUJI
FUJIFILM X-T1, FUJINON 10-24 f/4IS lens – 1/7 second, f/4, ISO 1000
I had the opportunity to cruise around a few of Tokyo’s brightest areas on Friday night with my FUJI X-T1 mounted on the outside of our car. Thanks to the willingness of my friend Masao to volunteer his time and car, we were able to capture some pretty cool night shots.
I used an external suction cup mount paired with a small sony ball joint to mount the camera on the driver’s side of the vehicle. Even though the mount is extremely secure, I used my Lance Camera Strap attached to the car as a safety tether in case the mount failed. This tether could also help against theft, but in Tokyo that is not really an issue.
While Masao drove, I sat in the passenger seat remotely controlling the camera over wifi using Fuji’s iPhone application. It worked flawlessly never dropping the connection and allowing me to not only change camera settings on the fly, but to also see a live feed from the camera.
It was a pretty cool outing and I’ve picked up more than a few nice shots. I will definitely put this rig to work again in the future when I am back in Utah for a different style of shots.
