  • “The Traveling Boomer is a blog I’ve been following for a good many years. Paul piqued my interest with this post about a travel camera, a modest mirrorless from Fuji. It certainly looks the part, a very handsome retro SLR look. He says it has a rangefinder style, but with that chunky prism hump, it’s definitely channelling the single lens reflex cameras of yesteryear.” http://athousandflights.com/retro-shooter/
