A family roadtrip around Australia with the Fuji X system | Tom Leuntjens Photography

A family roadtrip around Australia with the Fuji X system | Tom Leuntjens Photography | Road To X, Fujifilm topics | Scoop.it
I'm currently on a 3 month roadtrip with my family in Australia. We are travelling in a campervan with our two boys: a 3,5 year old and a 1 year old. It's been a wonderful journey so far. Choosing my gear for this trip was rather easy. As a photographer I wanted to be able to make great pictures, but as a dad, it had to be compact & light. And to be honest, there wasn't much room left in our bags. My camera bag (Retrospective 30) actually doubled as a diaper bag on the plane. What did I bring on this trip? A Fuji XT1 with the XF18 (27mm) and the XF35 (50mm) lenses and a Fuji X100S (35mm). A couple of SD cards, 4 batteries each and that's it! I haven't regretted this decision for a second. Most of time I tend to take just one camera and lens with me when we go walking. It makes me work with whatever I have with me at the time. Because of the built in ND filter the X100S has seen the most action so far. The XF35/XT1 combo is still my favourite (but eagerly awaiting the firmware update).

The Merket family // Family Session with the Fuji-XT1 | Tom Leuntjens Photography

The Merket family // Family Session with the Fuji-XT1 | Tom Leuntjens Photography | Road To X, Fujifilm topics | Scoop.it
I'v been using the Fuji's XT-1 on all my weddings this year. I didn't switch to "Fuji" overnight. It was a gradual thing, and it was important to get the feel for the camera's. A family session is not my usual type of work but would prove for an ideal test-case for the XT1. Our architect friends where my guinea pigs. Thanks guys! Conclusions Mixing the XPROI with the XT1 is frustrating, my muscle memory lets me down .. it starts with the position of the eyepiece, the different button layout. This is why I opted for 2 identical bodies on weddings. The XF56 is a beast. I never shot a lot of 85mm on my Canon system. But this lens is getting a lot of action. (it's also the longest focal range in my bag now) It takes a while to master working in full manual mode with the Fuji's. My beef here is that that dial is harder to reach while holding the camera steady (the exposure compensation dial is better positioned). Yet I (again) prefer to work like this because the consistency in exposure

A wedding with the X-T1 | Tom Leuntjens Photography

A wedding with the X-T1 | Tom Leuntjens Photography | Road To X, Fujifilm topics | Scoop.it
After my recent blogpost I got a lot of questions about shooting the XT1. Do I shoot the Fuji's at weddings? Yes. Do I exclusively shoot them? On an eSession, yes , for a wedding, not yet. After getting to know the XT1 (and XF56) for a couple of weeks I felt confident enough to challenge myself to try and use it as a primary body. I would still use my 5DIII but I didn't want to give the XT1 the role of backup/secondary. I wanted to see if it could perform as the primary-body in the near future. The main reason why it is difficult to just change camera's is that the couple has booked you more than a year in advance based on a portfolio shot entirely with full frame bodies & fast primes. So I wanted to be careful not to have a different style or feeling towards my pictures just because the camera has changed. Yes, the photographer makes the picture, not the camera , yada yada .... but there is no denying that the XT1 is a different animal and it has an impact on your photography. It also

Fuji X-T1 Review: Fuji X system starts getting serious | Darren O'Brien

Fuji X-T1 Review: Fuji X system starts getting serious | Darren O'Brien | Road To X, Fujifilm topics | Scoop.it

Conclusion

The Fuji X-T1 is quite a camera, it is fast, responsive, quick to focus and that EVF is stunning.  The image quality is the typical, high standard, Fuji offering.  The images from the X-T1 are possibly the best I have seen from a non-full frame camera, same goes for the ISO performance.  Image quality is certainly better than what my Nikon D3 produced.  People get quite aggressive when comparing image quality, ridiculously comparing cameras 3 or 4 times the cost and laying that down as a marker.  Is the quality better than Nikon D4 or Phase One medium format? I would say probably not, however it does stand up to the best full-frame cameras from a couple of years ago and thats good enough for me.  The camera is compact, but not too small, I have quite large hands and I can hold it comfortably and it all feels natural.  Is this the so called “DSLR Killer”? Depends on who you are and what you shoot.  I would say that for some people the DSLR died a couple of years ago.  I know a number of people who committed to mirror less systems a long time ago, both amateurs and pros. I, myself, swapped about 2 years ago.  For some applications DSLRs still have the upper hand, sports and wildlife are probably still easier with a DSLR.  In some areas of advertising and commercial photography the need for larger file output may still exist, somewhere where a Full-frame DSLR or medium format camera might be better.  One things for sure, with the XT-1 Fuji have a camera which will have all, but the very top pro cameras looking over their shoulder......

I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Yves & Sabien. The base station for the wedding & party was the lovely scandinavian Ski Lodge Hotel. The decor for the ceremony was situated at 1860m, Brunnihutte SAC. Never have I been more pleased with my Fuji X switch because we walked all the way up ... Thank you Yves & Sabien & Friends for making this a very pleasant weekend. And a very honourable mention to my Sherpa Lieven for joining me for the ride, for assisting and for carrying the bag & running away with my water & energy bar. Technical Info: All images taken with a FujiFilm XT-1 or X-E XF23, XF35, XF6. A small teaser preview. More to come.

Do I even miss my DSLR anymore? / jaysonoertel | Road To X, Fujifilm topics | Scoop.it

I absolutely LOVE my Fuji X-T1 and have yet to officially sell my Canon 5D Mark iii system.  For some reason, I have felt this overbearing need to hang on to it – even though I haven’t shot with it in a long time.  Why? I don’t know.  Comfort, maybe?  Well, I recently read this blog post that Riley Joseph wrote called, “Gone DSLR Gone:: Fully Mirrorless!” where Riley discusses the EXACT reasons that I have been hanging on to my Canon.
