To switch from a DSLR to X-T1 may seem risky when you have to cover outdoors activities and events, such as the BASE jump or tightrope walking. But autofocus performance and lightness of X-T1 allows working under very good conditions.

Its light weight and ergonomic design make this camera a very nice tool when you have to work on cliffs, including recall a few hundred meters above the ground! The electronic shutter that can store images without any noise is a huge plus! This makes it possible to be more discreet and achieve results impossible to do with a fat camera like a DSLR.
