What can I say?
I am guilty as charged, I have been seduced by a most gorgeous mistress, The Fuji X-T1.
This is one beautiful camera and I have now designated it my Official Travel Companion when on the road doing my shows and seminars around the world.
Many photographers have shared how the lightness of this camera has been one of the major factors in moving over to The Fuji System. I must be honest and say, I still love my Nikon and will not be letting her go.
I am just clear about how and when I will use both of these truly wonderful tools for my photography.
Nikon for Studio, Landscape and Portrait work while at home.
Fuji for Travel and that includes all the genres of shooting I enjoy: Street Photography, People, Places, Cultures, Buildings, Nature and Life all caught in the Fuji Frame.
It took me a while to make the adjustment to Fuji cameras because I was more worried about the battery life and image quality. Not any more, extra batteries more than make up for the superb colour reproduction and straight out of camera jpegs this camera delivers, really stunning.
The Mirrorless Technology has educated me further into Understanding Exposure - my friend and teacher Bryan Peterson has been a great support in helping me to understanding what happens to the "light" once it enters then lens. Armed with this knowledge and a Fuji Camera, I can also see now what happens to the image prior to shooting.
I am very excited about traveling with this Camera. Next week I hit Amsterdam and I hope to come back with some great images from using this camera along with the gorgeous 10-24mm Wide Angle and the agile 35mm 1.4.
So, this love affair has begun and I hope our romantic relationship captures so truly gorgeous vision and memories down the road.
