Since 2015 I have been photographing with Fujifilm, only as a supplement when traveling. After photographing an international violin competition for 6 weeks where silent cameras were indispensable, I decided to switch to Fujifilm completely. Above all, the X-T series is perfect for my work as a photojournalist and reportage photographer thanks to its compact size, the many manual settings and the silent shutter.
