There is something magical about the X Series cameras. These cameras have brought back a sensual part of photography that we lost when the world switched to digital. Broadly speaking, in the digital world, we have lost the analog or physical factor. We no longer touch and feel things, we simply scroll and push buttons and digital photography has been no exception. We have left the darkroom with its wonderful smells and tactile sensations for the computer. Cameras lost their tactile feel of the shutter speed dial and the aperture ring. In the digital world, the photographer has to deal with layers of menus. But Fujifilm’s X Series cameras have brought a large portion of this back to the photographer and thus a large amount of joy back to photography that has been lost over the years.
Starting with the X-Pro1, the X System gradually changed my complete workflow, and now I shoot FujiFilm gear on all my assignments. It doesn’t make sense anymore to carry a bulky, heavy DSLR when I can achieve as good or better results with a small camera like the X-Pro2 or the X-T2.
