  1. Another great episode! I love the 24 hour concept and your suggestion of imposing a 1 photo per hour limitation. I’d add another: to shoot it on a single roll of film! :). That would let you leave all of those Fuji batteries at home! I may give it a shot myself once NY City warms a bit. Thanks Valerie!

  2. I enjoy all of the TWIP podcasts, but especially yours, Valerie! I just purchased a Fuji X-T1 (moving from Canon 60D DSLR), Can’t wait to “hit the streets” with it. I also liked the 24 hours of shooting idea. I plan to suggest it to a couple of local friends in the Boston area!

    1. Thank you Dave!! I’m make sure Frederick sees this comment 🙂
      You won’t be disappointed with the X-T1, especially in full silent mode.
      Have fun with the project and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!
