Knife Craftsman taken with Fujifilm X-H1


Just back to Singapore after  conducting a workshop in China..

Am glad to got to know a traditional knife craftsman in this trip
He works fast despite his age and the challenging conditions

Shot this short clip with the very reliable Fujifilm X-H1 and the XF 10-24 mm lens
The craftsman was not posing for us, everything was shot as it is while he is working..

Love how the camera handles the shadows and highlights in this challenging lighting
This was shot handheld at iso 3200
The stabilization works extremely well..
There was a slight jerk in the beginning cos i tripped in the very constrained location
love the details of the dust when he hammered the metal.. and the details of the sparks when he was doing the welding..

check out the other video here
