The Fujifilm X-E1: One year in Tokyo | Henry Stradford

A year ago today I got my hands on the Fujifilm X-E1. Since then, I’ve been shooting with it around Tokyo almost daily and some 10,000 shots later it hasn’t missed a beat and I still love using this ergonomically sublime little camera. I’ve seen the camera improve through the various firmware updates – thank you Fujifilm – and have evolved my shooting style to mostly manual (AFL lock) focus and aperture priority or manual exposure settings (auto ISO). Customizations include the Fujifilm half case, a Lensmate thumb grip, a soft release button produced by Map Camera and the front logo muted with a black Mitsubishi chinagraph pencil. I’ve added the highly portable 27mm XF pancake lens to the excellent 18-55 zoom and, with a spare battery, now have a minimal yet very versatile kit. I look forward to the next 12 months with this delightful camera. Meanwhile my best efforts of the last 12 months can be found here….
