The Fujifilm Film Simulations are hands down one of the main things that keeps me coming back to the brand. It is by far one of the most fun things to tinker with while shooting and really increases my enjoyment out in the field.
I have been shooting alot less with my X-T1 lately and have been enjoying my X100F far more but here are a few examples of the film simulations I have enjoyed using from my X-T1 and still use while shooting my X100F.
I threw in the over saturated Pop Color example because although its unrealistic for most real world shooting applications it can still be fun and provide some interesting results!
I got my first long zoom lens and took it out to the Botanical Gardens. I don't know what I am doing yet and am happy to admit that. I do enjoy the "birding" though. I need to keep my ears and eyes open apparently, not something as simple as that to a beginner.
I'm considering migrating from a crop-frame DSLR (Nikon D90) to the well-loved mirrorless world of Fuji X. The impetus is my upcoming honeymoon, where we'll be taking our dream vacation to New Zealand and French Polynesia. I can hardly wait to get my eyes on those beautiful landscapes!
I was looking at full-frame cameras from Nikon and Canon, but after spending an hour with a work colleague who's maniacal in his love for the X100 series, I've changed course. The challenges I face with my current DSLR (bulky for travel/hiking, multiple lenses but never change them, too much effort to let photos happen organically or take the camera out regularly), seem to be addressed with these smaller, but just as powerful, cameras. As I read more, my excitement increased - people are obsessed with the Fuji color, sensor, and engineering.
I do have a few questions before I make the switch.
For landscape photography, am I sacrificing up anything major by not going full-frame? Have you been satisfied with your shots in this area? X-T2 vs. X100F - is there one that you would recommend based on my anticipated usage? About me: mid-30's outdoor lover, photo enthusiast, loves photography for travel and capturing lifelong memories of friends/family/moments. As I mentioned, I'm pretty much sold on the smaller profile since I know I'll use the camera more often (vs. pulling out my phone), just wondering about image quality for this once-in-a-lifetime trip! Thanks in advance.
