It’s been close to a year since I jumped ship from Nikon to Fuji, and my starter X-E1 already felt a bit long in the tooth compared to the more rugged X-T1 that was released this year. In October I was able to upgrade and my first shoots with new cameras always seem to prominently feature my daughter Magdalena. Long story short- I love the camera. It’s clearly a bit tougher than the plastic X-E1, and I’m more on board with a few small adaptaions:
1. dedicated ISO dial
2. dedicated video button
3. ability to set the function on all directional buttons- in my case, focus points in each direction
Anything that stops me from searching through a menu is a plus in my book. The only downside, so far, is that the Fuji app that supposedly connects via wi-fi is broken since the release of ios8, but that’s an app problem, not a hardware one.
This was also in combination with various small pieces of equipment, like Neewer LED lights and a smoke machine (not pictured here). If you enjoy any of this work I encourage you to like it and share it! For more photoworks goodness peruse my Etsy shop, follow on tumblr and twitter and instagram, and rummage around on my full site.
