Living With The Fuji X-T1 | Kevin Raber

Watching and being part of Fuji’s evolution of the X series camera has been a great experience.  Fuji continually improves upon previous generations of cameras and along the way introduces whole new systems.  They were very smart early on to show a road-map of the lenses they planned to introduce and when to expect them.  So far, they have kept their promises.  They also have done something that has surprised a lot us by continually upgrading all their camera with new firmware.  The firmware they introduce is not just bug fixes but true new feature rich firmware releases.  The Fuji X-T1 just received a major firmware upgrade giving the camera all sorts of new capabilities.  The coolest is an electronic shutter that is completely noiseless with 1/32,000 of a second capability.  Now you can shoot wide open with the fastest lens in the brightest light.  As you can probably tell my experience with the Fuji X-T1 was nothing but positive.  I had fun shooting with this camera. There is a lot to like with this camera.  The ergonomics of the camera and layout feels just right.  I have big hands and use the optional vertical grip, and I like this because there is a shutter release button on the grip that makes vertical shooting comfortable. (No more elbow in the air awkwardness). The whole idea of dials and knobs is well thought out.  Unlike on the Olympus, I never had an instance where I accidentally changed a setting. …….
