Fujifilm X-T1 First thoughts.

A rare reblog from me because…. drumroll….. I bought an X-T1 today and perhaps rather stupidly I am going to learn on the hoof in Barcelona. I’ll still take the Leica but the X100s will stay home and of course no Canon kit will fly with me. So…… can this sort of gear replace my DSLRs? We shall see. X- T1 versus 5D3 or 1DX? I need to do a bit of a workaround FTB as Lightroom has not updated its camera profiles for the X T1 RAW files but I can import them via Bridge or CS6 which has a beta version available and I suspect I can convert them to DNG files too. I quite like DNG as that is what the M9 produces. My old M3 only produces some strange stuff called ‘film’. Frankly the very few files I shot today looked good as jpegs so we’ll see.

Before I go, a Lulu bulletin. She is much better today. Eating well, moving better and seemingly pain free. She is on steroids and so when weget back we may have a bionic dog. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and good wishes for her.



This is not a technical write up, it is simply what I think and feel about the X-T1 and Fuji and the reason I purchased the X-T1 as soon as it was available.

Not long after I had brought the XE2 the X-T1 was announced, I was a little gutted but decided I would stick with the X-E2 and see how things went, having moved over from Nikon Pro gear to Fuji I was actually struggling with the XE2. The sensor is better than the XPro1 and the images were very nice, but the XE2 was just a little too small in my hands and the fact Fuji removed the View Mode button was very annoying. One of the most annoying problems was shooting nighttime at events with a bright viewfinder in my face. Of course I could have just taped the sensor up to keep the EVF lit and…

  1. I’m reading your posts backwards so I missed that Lulu was ill. I’m so glad that she is feeling better. Maybe she senses a long absence from Ms. Ha. But I hope that is not the problem. Sometimes dogs just get out of snuff and we never find out what the real problem is/was. Some of mine have been puny at times and it is certainly cause for worry when anyone is so attached to their pet/s.

    I am fascinated reading about all the cameras that you own and some of the tech stuff about the new Fuji which sounds like a very keen camera with outstanding abilities.

  2. I reiterate Lottie’s comments. The camera stuff is beyond my ken; but I’m sure whatever you’ve done is the right thing (she said, fingers crossed behind her back) …

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
