First of its kind Fujifilm Blogger’s Meet-cum-Launch event at The PArk in Connaught Place, Delhi, was an interesting experience where Fujifilm Corporation announced its latest offering for the India market – the premium compact XF1. The stylish new XF1 is the latest addition to Fujifilm’s X Series that offers premium compact cameras. I expected the event to be a boring launch. Thankfully, it was anything but that. No boring speeches or presentations, fun quiz events, a stand-up comedy act and some brilliant photography tips from celebrated fashion photographer Hemant Sood: event organisers knew how to cater to their audience which comprised of this city’s premier bloggers.

Stand-up comedian Rajneesh Kapoor kept everyone entertained. We spoke post his performance about blogging, his comic strip, and the Indian stand-up scene. He is as humble in as he is funny. It was a pleasure meeting a performer who was so hands-on with his audience. You can connect with him on Twitter or on his Facebook page.

She talked about her experience with the XF1 and it’s ‘cool retro’ design that had bowled her over.
Renowned fashion photographer Hemant Sood stressed the individuality of the photographer’s vision and placed the aesthetics of photography over everything else. What he said resonated with me, so I clicked some flowers. Because.
More flowers. This time with a glass.
