[Updated: added a third review from Chuq Von Rospach.]
A lot of photographers I trust have bought the Fujifilm X-T1 mirrorless camera, and I must admit I’m looking at it for my next body. My trusty Nikon D90 has served me well (and I hope will continue to serve me well), but it’s starting to age. I’d love to take advantage of the sensor technology updates that have occurred in the past five years.
Three personal reviews have caught my eye of late that I thought were worth sharing:
First, Zack Arias has been shooting primarily with the Fuji X-T1 for months and writes an official review at his site, DEDPXL.
Second, Mason Marsh explains Why I Bought a Fujifilm X-T1, which is also a meditation on choosing photography subject matter and stretching beyond personal boundaries.
Third, Chuq Von Rospach looks at the X-T1 from a landscape photography point of view, with plenty of beautiful examples and this great quote (about the Fuji X-Pro1): “The thing was, the images wouldn’t shut up. Both of these images are up on my wall and are two of my favorite Yosemite images ever, and that’s saying something. The more I looked at the results of the Fuji sensor, the more I liked it.”
