As mentioned in my last blog I recently took delivery of the Fuji X-Pro1 to which impressed me a great deal. For me it’s not so much what the camera does (although it helps). To me it’s more about how the cameras feels and how much I enjoy using it too.
The Fuji has impressed me a great deal. In my hands it feels great, the build quality and detailing is fantastic. The controls are logically placed, it’s an absolute joy to use. In fact this camera has impressed me so much, I made the decision to switch my entire professional set up to Fuji, switching from Nikon. Now I know many fan boys will scoff and that’s fine. But at the end of the day I need to have a system I enjoy using that delivers the goods in terms of quality. For me both of those factors come hand in hand when I shoot. My Nikon kit was due for an upgrade and although it served me well, very well in fact. I felt the new offerings didn’t offer me what I wanted. As well as that it left me slightly confused as to where Nikon were heading. The Fuji system however offered me everything I was after and in a form factor that was smaller and lighter. Plus they even published a road map to show me their future plans. This alone gave me confidence it was the right choice. So this week all of my Nikon kit was sold and replaced with another Fuji X-Pro1 and an X-E1. Plus the full current lens portfolio. So now I am a full time Fuji Professional and so far loving every minute of it. As I know most people don’t read this bit I may as well shut up now and stick some pictures below.
