This year began with a big bang for the Fuji X users.
The Fuji X-T1 was to be announced. Rumors over rumors had been around the world wide web and we the Fuji users where getting hot and bothered about this brand new entry to the X cameras market.
I for myself was very much interested in this camera and now I am one lucky guy who is an owner of this little powerhouse. This is by all means no review on this camera. I just have not had it long enough to be able to say much about it. My copy has been with me since friday evening. Thanks to one very, very friendly dealer in my neighborhood I was able to get my hands on the X-T1 much earlier than I had anticipated. Thanks to Photo Hirrlinger in Stuttgart.
As I have been using Fuji´s X cameras since the very first X100 it did not take me that long to get used to the camera at all. What I can say in this very short time is that Fuji have put a lot of thought into this camera. Everything comes together. The layout of the buttons, the mode dials, the dials for metering and the drive (meaning single shot, burst mode etc.) The ISO dial is what I have been waiting for since I sold my Canon Powershot G10.
The viewfinder is everything and more I had excepted. I liked the one on the X-E1 and did not mind the lag at all. Well until now. There is no lag on the viewfinder of this X-T1 and the size. Damn it is HUGE!!!
Anyway, as stated before this is by all means no review. It´s a first impression and more so showing some sample images taken with this camera. They are not all jpegs straight out of the camera. Some have been processed and some not.
So enjoy the first images and do not hesitate to ask me anything you wish about this camera. You can be sure I will give you an answer if I can.
You might be thinking to yourself: “Hey I´ve seen this one before?” Well not quite. But I took a very similar shot just a few weeks ago and posted it in my last post.
This was done deliberately. I wanted to show you what the file output of the X-T1 is in comparison to the X-E1. You can see this shot via this LINK
