La mia esperienza con FUJIFILM

I have always been a fan of using small, unobtrusive cameras in my photographic work. When the photo world switched to digital photography, my quest to replace small film cameras became very difficult and I resigned myself to carrying huge cameras around the world to do my work. FUJIFILM X series of cameras has changed my thinking and once again I can carry less and move faster with these amazing small cameras. At first I used the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 as a secondary camera carried alongside my DSLR kit. Now, with a couple X-T2’s and a few lenses I have everything I need to capture the ever changing moments I seek out around the world. Recently, I’ve also been using the FUJIFILM GFX with one or two lenses. Although the camera is slightly bigger, the image quality is huge.
