I don’t do a lot of reviews on cameras I don’t own, but recently I had the Canon SL2 for a weekend and was so impressed by the way it shot and felt that I had to take it out for a day of shooting.
Here are my initial impressions.
The X100F is Fujifilm’s new masterpiece and the fourth addition to the famous x100 line of cameras. The X100F seems to have taken the biggest step forward of any of the X100 camera upgrades with a new 24MP sensor and new battery for improved life and performance. Not only that but the X100F is also a autofocusing beast.
It’s what I consider the most versatile fixed lens camera money can buy and a street photographers dream come true.
The Specs . . . 4k video, a 24 megapixel sensor, two-way tilt screen, dual UHS-II memory card slots, boost performance of 14fps with a battery grip.
Did Fujifilm just make the best APS-C camera on the market?
The Sony A6300 is Sony’s flagship APS-C camera. Compared to the A6000, the camera features an all magnesium weather resistant body that feels much more rugged and solid in the hand. The camera also features a new sensor and the ability to shoot 4k. With Sony’s growing APS-C lens lineup, the A6300 is one of the most versatile yet affordable cameras on the market.
It’s also one of the first of a new generation of APS-C cameras that are closing the gap on full frame.
The Sony A6300 and Fujifilm X-Pro 2 are probably the two most interesting mirrorless APS-C cameras on the market right now. Although they seem similar because they both feature a 24 megapixel Sony sensor and an EVF off to the side, the cameras are actually very different. Not only in terms of ergonomics but the technology that powers them. With most review sites only fixating on high ISO performance, sensor sharpness and auto focus, I wanted to take this time to point out that there is a lot more to a camera besides what the sensor can do.
Here is the quick comparison between the A6300 and the Fujifilm X-Pro 2.
After years of waiting, the new Fujifilm X-Pro 2 is here. With a huge bump in megapixels, processing power and build quality, the X-Pro 2 is not just better than original X-Pro 1, but it’s the best camera Fujifilm has built to date.
Not too long ago I made the leap into the FujiX100T fixed lens system. But why this camera? Why only a 16 megapixel APS-C camera with a fixed lens when I already own a Sony A7r with a few great lenses?
I use to think megapixels and dynamic range was all that mattered, but now after going through a few different camera bodies over the years, I’ve really come to learn that it’s the physical camera itself that matters. Not just the specs, or the pixel depth of the sensor resolution, but the way the camera feels in your hand, the experience of shooting itself. I’ve come to learn that it’s the actual physical process of taking the photos that I enjoy and the Fuji X100T is absolutely perfect for this.
With a few flaws of course 🙂
So I wanted to do a review different than all the other reviews on the Internet done by bloggers that have no idea what this camera really is. Yes this camera has auto focus, and it’s 16 megapixels and has a OVF / EVF!. Ok that’s out of the way. . .
Let’s get into this review! A real review that has taught me a ton about this camera and will hopefully teach you a few things too.
