The World Heritage photographed by using the FUJIFILM X Camera

I have taken the world heritage's pictures using the FUJIFILM X-T1 and XF lens since April in 2013.

There are many kinds of heritage sites, they include cultural, natural and mixed sites - all of which have been recognized for their 'outstanding universal value' covering with the wider history of humanity and the world's common, and irreplaceable heritage.

Under the poor environment condition where it is located in the region with no traffic access, so I have to walk to take a picture. It is very important to have the right cameras to take a picture well under the poor situation. Both X-T1 and XF lens are small and light to use, so it is excellent to take a nice picture. As well as it's remarkable speciality of the color by Fujifilm, its sharpness and high definition are my best attracting experience. Some of  X-T1 and XF lens were well functioned in the poor conditions which have dust and humility, or the cold weather of – 10 degree. Recently, I have taken a picture using X-T2, it is very excellent to have the high definition as high as 2430m picture element, including less Noise at the High sensitivity. In addition, it is easier to focus speedily because it has a focus stick.
