On another note I am still pleased with my the Fuji X-T1 and looking forward to next weekend when it will be used on its first studio shoot.

Fuji X-T1

For a very long time I have been looking at options to reduce the weight of the kit I carry around especially as I suffer from a bad back. As I am a Canon user the most logic choice was the EOS M. The weight and size was perfect, however I never got used to the touch screen. I missed the buttons and dials to change settings. I was also very disappointed Canon seem to have dropped their support for the camera. Only one additional lens has been released since it launch 18 months ago (11-22mm). A second body has been released (EOS 2), but only in Asia. Not sure what Canon plans are but I can’t wait.
After reading many reviews I decides to go for the Fuji X-T1. The style, size and weight seem perfect, so I ordered one which arrived last week. Now the big question is how does it performance. So far, so good. Below are from my first food shoot with the X-T1 using the 18-55mm F2.8-F4 lens.
During the next couple of weeks I have a couple of portrait sessions booked in the studio and on location. I will provide more feedback on the X-T1 after these sessions.

The Fuji X-T1 arrived this week and I am planning to test it with a studio and food photo shoots to see if the image quality and handling are to my liking. If I am happy all my Canon gear will go and a selection of Fuji lens will be purchased starting with the 56mm F1.2.

My Canon 5D mkii is 5 years old in the summer and is being replaced with a Canon 6D. Would love the 5Dmk iii but I can’t justify the extra £1000 especially as I no longer shoot for paid work (families, newborns etc). The second change may be to invest in a Fuji X-T1 as I am not very happy with my Canon EOS-M as a carry around camera. I need buttons and dials.
