Fujifilm's X-Series cameras offer optimal size, and at-ease handling without losing quality, compared to most DSLR's. The X-Series small bodies and primary lenses make spontaneously natural photos possible, especially when those being photographed are not accustomed to being in front of a camera. The X-Series has many advantages, but at the top of the list are a silent-mode useful when shooting deficit situations and its intuitive handling for the aperture setting. For photojournalists who don't wish to stand out in certain shooting situations, Fujifilm's X-Series is truly a stand-out camera.
