I have been shooting for over a month with my “back-up” camera. My Fuji x-t2. I call it my back-up camera, but it works as well as any camera I’ve ever used. I also want to mention; It’s dead sexy!
I initially bought the Fuji x-t2 as a travel camera. My Canon 5D MK-iii is my baby! The lenses rock, and I love the creative freedom of shooting in manual mode. What I don’t love is the size and the weight. Walking around Europe with a giant camera around my neck doesn’t jive with my activity level. The mirrorless camera, or micro 4/3, to the rescue! All the benefits of a in a smaller, lighter size.
A mirrorless camera is similar to a DSLR in that it accepts different lenses. They are sometimes called a “hybrid camera” and “compact system camera” (CSC). The body is thinner than a DSLR because it does not use a mechanical mirror to switch the scene between the optical viewfinder and image sensor. The concept was first introduced in 2008 and the technology has skyrocketed since! Sensor sizes are getting bigger, as are other high end features and lens quality. The lenses I have for my Fuji x-t2 are as high quality as any I have used!
In summery, the Fuji X-T2 (a mirrorless camera) functions like a DSLR in a lighter weight and smaller size. It’s so easy to use with the function dials are on top of the camera and an aperture ring right on the lens, just like old school SLR cameras. The images are beautiful utilizing the amazing Fuji Film magic. Mostly, if I’m being completely honest, I FREAKING LOVE THE OLD SCHOOL LOOK!!!!! If you know me you know I love things that are old school. I even picked my camera bag for this camera because it looked my my dad’s old camera bag.
It honestly makes me so happy when someone asks me if it’s film camera!
Until my Canon (my baby) is returned to me I will enjoy every moment shooting on this bad boy!
