Fuji X-T1 Review

Fuji X-T1 Review | Travel Photography | Scoop.it

It has been well over a month since the long-awaited-for Fuji X-T1 arrived at my doorstep. I can now safely say that I will keep this camera (and hopefully for a good while). The X-T1 is part of the Fuji X-series of cameras that were first introduced a few years ago and include both compact fixed-lens and interchangeable-lens cameras. At the heart of most of these cameras is an APS-C-sized sensor that has a different pixel arrangement than the sensors used in most other cameras today. Fuji called called the pixel arrangement X-Trans. From the start the X-series cameras were widely praised for their high image quality, close to that of full-frame cameras, but roundly criticized for being slow and quirky. Back then, an X-camera made great photos if you were able turn it on without a firmware crash, get the lens to focus, dig deep into a maze of menus to make adjustments, and your subject stood still while all this unfolded. But that was then and this is now. The just released Fuji X-T1 is a solid performer in every respect when compared to other mirrorless cameras.

There are a lot of different options when it comes to processing HDR photos. You can use standalone programs like Photomatix, you can use Photoshop's HDR Pro, you can hand process the photos as layers in Photoshop, and there are plugins that you can use within Photoshop or Lightroom. But another option that can work very well with many photos is simply to use Lightroom's tools with no other plugins or programs.
