Fuji XT-2

Fuji XT-2

Who doesn't love new toys?! I certainly do and this one is a Fuji XT-2, their new latest flagship mirrorless camera. I've had it now for a few weeks and it's a really great little camera. Being mirrorless, it's much smaller than the Canon I normally use for weddings but none the less impressive in it's image quality and handling. Not gonna get all complicated, but with the addition of the little joystick on the back to move the focus point, it has become my go-to camera.

 

Joystick is great for my style of photography.

The camera is just the right size, not as bulky as a DSLR and not too small to feel awkward. It handles really well and the jpegs are great straight out of camera....bye bye RAW!

My Fuji lens lineup is expanding nicely so it should be capable of doing weddings. So far only used it for personal and family stuff and it has been a joy. Shooting jpegs means little to no post processing. The Fuji film simulation settings are great and I can set the bracket mode to shoot 3 film simulation version at a time. This give me a standard colour shot, an Acros B&W version and any other I choose.....fantastic. All the above photos were taken on its little brother, the XT-10 which I've had for well over a year. It's much smaller and very portable, not that the XT-2 is big, but is now gonna become the backup/2nd body for weddings. I've previously owned a number of "little" cameras including a Fuji XPro-1 a Sony A6000 and a Panasonic GX1 in the search for a smaller more portable camera, but that another story altogether......
