FUJI XT1 FIRST IMPRESSIONS

PHOTO GEAR by KRISS on 15 march 2017

It is not that different from shooting a pro DSLR and I would have never guessed I’d ever say that, being all against EVF (electronic viewfinder) and all.
But this XT1 has a viewfinder that has impressed me.
The eye piece is big, similar to that on my Nikon D4s or the D800, and when you look through it, the image you get is very large and comfortable.
I believe it is exactly the same in size as the one I get on my DSLRs without the magnifying eye piece.
As for the electronic part, well it is not that big a deal and actually gives you a very nice idea of what you’re going to get.

The size of the camera body is obviously smaller (which is why most people including me choose to go with an APS-C mirrorless) but it feels good in the hands, buttons are properly laid out, there are a few improvements I would have loved but these are really minor and I can’t see them stopping me from shooting any time soon.

My first lens with this camera is the Fuji 90mm F2 which is equivalent to a 135mm on full frame.
This lens is a bokeh machine and produces creamier, softer, more gorgeous images than any of my lenses on Nikon did.
I sold my Nikon 70-200 VRII to purchase this system and I am happy I am not regretting it !

What else can I say, the camera feels sturdy, it’s a lot lighter than a DSLR so it’s a bit strange at first but after a couple of days it feels nice and I really want to carry that one around more !
