Piet Van den Eynde tells his story with the X Series



Piet Van den Eynde is a Belgian freelance photographer specializing in travel portraiture. He also writes books, magazine articles and gives training about digital photography, image editing with Adobe Lightroom, for which he is an Adobe Certified Expert. He' s also a true black & white aficionado.

In 2009, he threw his camera, a flash and an umbrella in his bicycle panniers and cycled 5000 miles through Turkey, Iran, India and Indonesia for a photography project called PortraitsOfAsia. Learn more about Piet on his blog MoreThanWords.

Piets Dutch print books are published with Pearson Education. His English eBooks are published by www.craftandvision.com.


I like the Fujifilm X System because it's compact, lightweight and unobtrusive, without giving in on image quality. I can easily fit two bodies and three lenses in a small bag, add an EF-42 flash and a flash umbrella and I'm good to go.

I also like the little X10 because of it's super-fast flash sync speed: it opens up a lot of creative possibilities.

My favorite lenses on the larger X cameras are the XF14mmF2.8, the XF18mmF2 and the 35mmF1.4. I'm a big wide-angle fan and I cannot wait for the announced XF10-24mmF4 zoom to arrive. I was also impressed with the quality of the XF18-55mmF2.8-4, which is an ideal walkaround lens.

For a future bicycle travel project, I want to combine the lightweight Fuji X System with an equally lightweight portable flash system (an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra), to make environmental portraits.
