Cameras are just tools in the photographer’s trade – capturing moments of time and light onto a sensor. Frankly, there’s not that much of a noticeable difference in the results from cameras across a range of cost. It’s much more about the moment, the composition, and the light – than it is about the camera.
But, how the camera enhances the experience for the photographer does matter. Some cameras are a struggle to use – lots of menus, etc. Others are a delight and make things simple – easing the photographer’s workload rather than increasing it.
The Fujifilm X-T1 is one of the latest cameras that eases the experience for the photographer. Compared to a traditional DSLR, it’s delightfully small – with front and back grips that make it a perfect fit in the hand. The image quality of the Fujifilm X-Trans II sensor is superb – as is Fuji’s in camera JPEG processing and film emulation.
I’m looking forward to exploring a new world of photography with the X-T1 – and sharing my results. So far, just a few images in, it’s just superb.
