Mild winter, cool winter: different Fujifilm cameras

Two years ago, toward the end of a mild winter, with my trusty Fujifilm XF1 I captured sakura (cherry blossoms) on our hill here in Portland, Orygun, in mankai (fully opened) state, on February 27.

This year, we had a cooler than normal winter, with more stick-on-the-ground snowstorms than I can recall in many decades of living in this city. Today, March 31, almost five weeks further into the calendar year, I took a photo from the same location — of the same branch of the same tree, actually — when the blossoms are still sitcibu (70% opened). This time, I used the ~2005 vintage Fujifilm X3 Pro, fitted with a Tamron 60 mm f/2 macro lens, which, on the S3 Pro, is the equivalent of a 93 mm lens in full-frame perspective:

The Fujifilm S3 Pro, which was built on a Nikon body, featured 23.0×15.5mm Super CCD SR II sensor, which had 6.17 million S-pixels and 6.17 million R-pixels (both octagonal, but different sizes) in an array that was rotated 45° from the horizon line. Because of its unique rendition, and excellent color, the S3 Pro remains in use today, especially among wedding photography professionals, when contemporary DSLRs have been discarded or relegated to museum status.
