I’m Roach Liu, a graphic designer. Photography is my hobby. I have over 7 years experiences in various kinds such as Macro, Landscape, Portrait, and Documentary photography. Each of them has different way to enjoy. And my favorite one is Ecological Macro Photography.
While shooting Macro photography, I often need to use the viewfinder to keep my position more stable. Therefore, I prefer to use X-T series camera body.
Though X-T200 is an entry model for the X-T series, its basic hardware like resolution, film, focus points, etc, has improved a lot compared with other entry models.X-T200 also increased many filters like fisheye to create more fun for photos.
During the test period, I only used X-T200 with XF80mmF2.8 to shoot the photos.
In the beginning, I worried if the camera would be lopsided.
After I used X-T200, I found the X-T200 body has a shoving handgrip, which enables stable holding for a long time. 425 Focus points can help to frame, and the lever on the back of the camera body makes the operation easier.
By using XF80mmF2.8, if the environment is light sufficient, the focus speed is quite enough to shoot the Macro theme easily. I personally think the shooting is smoothly, and you can use a sensitive touch screen and flip the LCD to take photos which need difficult shooting angles. I recommend X-T200 to Macro photography lovers who are also seeking for a light camera body.
