Fujifilm X-H1 : The Launch

Recently I was invited to attend a launch event in Bangalore. It was basically a meet and greet session. Still, I
was very excited especially because the launch product was a Camera. Being a photography enthusiast, I did go,
try and experience the digital device.

FujiFilm India has launched a new camera, in addition to its X series. In the midst of the X series range, this
is first of its kind.

The Managing Director of Fujifilm India Mr. Haruto Iwata & his team welcomed the guests and launched their
premium flagship product Fujifilm XH1. Mr. Ashwin Joshi, Manager of Image Capture Division, explained the
technical capabilities of the XH1. There was also a brief Q&A session with the audience.

The First Impression - I was attracted to its sturdy look and ergonomic design. However, it looks slightly bigger
than other X series cameras, like XT-2.

The XH1 is Fujifilm’s first mirrorless camera featuring 5 axis In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS).
Integrated with high precision laser measuring instrument, it has a capability of holding lenses from 14mm
to 400mm.

At the event, they had setup a 'Touch & Try Corner’. There, I got a chance to handle the camera and mounting
it with a wide variety of lenses.

There was a 'Shooting Corner' in the arena, where few models stood posing for the photographers, who wanted
to test the performance of the new camera. When I captured the dancing one, I was surprised to see the
clarity. With my shaky hands and moving image, I did achieve a sharp photo. The image quality was stunning and so were the color tones of the subject.

Being the first Fujifilm camera to feature IBIS, which offers a maximum of 5.5 stops of compensation
depending on the lens that you're using. This was one of the features that catches everyone's attention. It
provides high quality image stabilization which processes the moving video and makes corrections ~10000
times every second, to give a steady image on the screen. This is the only camera in the segment to feature
‘Dual dedicated processor’ too.

Having many positive features, the price of the camera starts from Rs. 1,49900/- With its high quality photographic range, XH1 becomes a perfect choice for those looking to buy a high-end camera. This is ideal for Wedding, Fashion & Wildlife Photography.

I wish I get to try this newly launched XH-1 before I own one. ;)

Muslim Girl, Growing Up - A Guide To Puberty

I got a chance to read this insightful young adult book, which I think is a must for every girl who is in her preteen. As much as I was happy to read, I am happy to share it with you as well. Alhamdulillah!

Written by       -  Natalia Nabil
Illustrations by -  Melani Putri
Publishers  - Prolance

Back in the day, attaining puberty was a shy and awkward affair. My friends have spoken about periods but mostly in a teasing way. My mother gave subtle hints about it to educate me. Yet, I was not very comfortable and open to discuss about the changes I went through. I guess most of the girls were and still are in this mind set.

There comes a phase where we all go through changes in our body as we grow, and entering puberty is one
of the significant early changes that we experience. The transition is like a bridge between childhood and adulthood. Puberty is natural but it is an emotional and at times confusing for the child. So it becomes parents’ responsibility to keep them informed, at ease and prepare them to handle the adolescence. Especially, for a girl, if they are unaided and unaware, there is a possibility of developing fear and discomfort by the sight of their first spotting.
This book has detailed views and colorful illustrations, which makes the growing girls easily get along with the topic. The vivid pictures make the understanding better and easier.

Muslim Girl, Growing Up is ideal for the girls of 8 - 19 years. Actually, the author had her daughters in mind while writing this guide. It makes it easy to relate to and follow the guide. But still, it is best to discuss personally with your children about growing up.

I love this book, especially because it gives right and vital information. From the very basic definition of puberty to personal hygiene and privacy, the topics include How to change your pad, How to know when its over, How to take bath after your period, How to dispose the pad, How to keep your body parts clean, about the PMS (the hormonal changes) that happens during adolescence and much more elaborately. This book covers every aspect for the girls to know what is it they are going through and how to handle it. Not only that it helps to understand physically but also it gives the emotional support.

The author has written this guide for young Muslim girls to understand the basic things they should know about puberty, while the religious aspects come along with it. But still, I would say this book belongs to every girl out there, irrespective of their religion and customs. After all, it is about a natural phase every female experiences in her life.

The book is informative and illustrative, and can be a good gift for preteens and teens. However, this guide is just a starter to the beautiful journey ahead.

Now available at Amazon.in. Do buy this guide, if you have a young girl at home.

Happy Women's Day!
