One of the reasons for starting this site was that I wasn’t taking enough pictures that belonged to me. The only camera that I have that is worth using is the Nikon D3 and isn’t something you want to lug around everyday.
There is no photographer who doesn’t like looking at new equipment as it comes to market and I’m no exception. I have been keeping a keen eye on the X series of cameras from Fujifilm.
As an aside, I was always a big fan of Fujifilm in the days of 36 shots per roll. I always found their colours better than Kodak.
The Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the Fujifilm X-E1 were the models that struck me as a good alternative to being with the Nikon D3.
Physically the Fujifilm cameras aren’t that different in size. The X-Pro1 being slightly larger. When you handle both cameras the feel in the hand is just as solid with a well-built reassurance.
The price difference between the two is what swung it for the X-E1 as a hobby camera. Having only used it for one day now, it is a camera that doesn’t compromise on being high quality.
