Archive for the ‘“Fuji X-T1”’ Category

Just a little blurb on this Fuji XF 18mm f2 lens. I picked it up, along with the Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 to use on my Fuji X-T1. The 18mm is like a 28mm on 35mm sensor, and the 35mm is same as a 50mm. They are both pretty amazing. Here is a sample from a shot I was playing with this evening.
I had taken the camera to Surin, Thailand for a weekend. Met this tattooed guy in the market and snapped a shot wide open at f2. Here is the shot, and a detail crop. (Click for the large versions.)
These little cameras are closing in on the DSLRs. Obviously I will take my Canon 5DMK3 every time when it comes to quality, but for the size and cost, this little camera is insanely impressive. I prefer the controls over the Sony A7 series as well.

When I first bought a digital camera in 2005 I just brought it along on shoots as a back-up in case my film camera went down. I sort of feel the same about this new generation of excellent small cameras on the market. Last year I had the Sony A7 for a while, now I have the Fuji X-T1. I am now getting to the point where I am using the Fuji for lots of projects.
For now I am still using Canon for my day to day kids photography, mainly because I have a great set of lenses. Secondly due to the ridiculously great autofocus on those DSLRS. But for almost everything else, this Fuji is the camera for me. I’m not going to go on about the specs etc, that has already been done to death. I’m just going to show a few examples from a decent variety of situations. Kids photo sessions, documentary stuff for an NGO here in Bangkok (day and night), as well as a few street images and random shots.
I can see a day soon where these small cameras are going to be all most of us need to make a living. My aching shoulders will love it.
