Leaving The DSLR Camp For Fujifilm Cameras - My Journey to the X100 & X-E1 | Ryan Lam

Leaving The DSLR Camp For Fujifilm Cameras - My Journey to the X100 & X-E1 | Ryan Lam | travel photography | Scoop.it


Coming from the DSLR camp I used APSC-sized and full frame sized sensor DSLRs for years. Some day I bought my first CSC with a fixed lens the Leica X1, because I want something compact, light-weighted, with an APSC-sized sensor for every day use and I don’t want to compromise in terms of image quality. However it was a short love: the not so good high ISO performance, the not so fast lens and the slow auto-focus were not good enough for my own style of photography. Hence I look for other options with an APSC-sized sensor. Here we go: I decided to buy the Fujifilm X100 and I sold the Leica X1. As soon as I got my X100 in my hands I took her to her first travel abroad: Hong Kong. She was my ‘backup camera’ for my Canon 5D. You know what kind of weather conditions you can expect in Hong Kong: hot and high humidity. I always had both cameras with me but mostly I like the convenience of the X100....

Is the DSLR Dead?: Fuji X-Pro1 real-life review | Rob Johns

Is the DSLR Dead?: Fuji X-Pro1 real-life review | Rob Johns | travel photography | Scoop.it

Conclusion

So is the DSLR dead? Well, yes and no. It depends entirely on the type of photography you do. The X-Pro1 is ideal for street, documentary, photojournalism, editorial and travel photography, but in the studio it feels awkward and has operational limitations. If Fuji were to address the operational limitations and release an optional studio grip that would make the ergonomics similar to a DSLR, then the demise of the DSLR would most certainly be one step closer. But to be fair to Fuji, I don’t think the camera was ever produced with the studio in mind. It’s great for certain types of photography and I would hate to see it evolve into an oversized ‘one camera fits all’ monster. It is precisely the small size and lightweight combined with the image quality that are its strength. The reality is that most professional photographers have an armoury of lenses and cameras to use according to the type of assignment they are working on. Look at other trades, have you seen how many types of screwdrivers are available on the market! Now, if Fuji were ever to produce a medium format digital camera specifically designed for studio use, that certainly would cause shockwaves in the industry and offer a real threat to the current line-up of medium format digital cameras. Remember you read it here first. Without doubt the X-Pro1 is a great camera. It’s not for the beginner or the faint-hearted and thankfully there are no picture styles to choose from, the film emulsions can be forgiven. It is a serious imaging tool capable of exceptional results. Fuji have demonstrated their commitment to the product by continuing to release firmware updates. The latest version 3.01 released only recently at the end of July. They also continue to expand the range of XF lenses. It is also encouraging that a camera manufacturer is prepared to listen to feedback from photographers and long may that continue....
