Life with Fuji – Part 1 | Mac Sokulski

I started with Fuji at the onset, about 4 years ago.  I got my first Fuji X, the Fuji X100 and I really fell in loved that camera.  The looks, the way it worked, the hybrid view finder. Even the little quirks.  I shot one of my boudoir sessions with it.  I remember the client asking if I was going to take any pictures, the camera was so quiet that she didn’t even notice.  Lots of great memories. Then came the X-Pro1, at a sacrifice.  With a heavy heart I sold the Fuji X100.  I have received my X-Pro1 about a week and a half before my family trip to Spain and Scotland.  I had only 3 lenses, old now, the three musketeers 18mm f2, 35mm f1.4, 60mm f2.4.  Coming from Canon cameras, and wide assortment of lenses, I was a little worried that this new Fuji setup is not going to work, that I will be cursing myself for not dragging the big Canon. I was surprised, I did not miss my Canon at all. Everything clicked into place.  Family, landscapes, street photography, everything.   At that time Adobe Lightroom did not recognize Fuji X raw files, and I knew that it will be a great pain to convert all the raw files from Fuji X-Pro1 to Lightroom, using the provided software.  At the last moment I’ve decided to shoot the entire trip in jpg.  It was crazy, but I was more than happy with the results………
