14 Mar Fuji X-T1, My first thoughts…
Fuji X-T1 v’s the Sony A7r? Why I picked the Fuji X-T1
Ever since the release of the Fuji X-E1 I have fell in love with Fujifilm. I was getting a little bit of camera lust when Sony released the A7 and A7r a few months ago, although I already have a full frame DSLR (I own the Nikon D800 and love it!) – Nikon released the Nikon Df and I almost bought one, but held out thinking to myself that Fuji had to have something in the works!
I was right… Fujifilm were working on a new mirrorless camera, one that would punch the competition in the face! The Fuji X-T1. So what is it I like so much about the Fuji X-T1?
The Fuji X-T1 is a photographers dream, the buttons and dials are EXACTLY where you want them! The camera feels light and nimble but not too small, and the EVF on the Fuji X-T1 (Electronic Viewfinder) is superb… amazing in fact!
The EVF is the thing that really put me off mirrorless in the past, the Fuji X-E1 has an EVF and I didn’t like it. It was laggy and just weird to use… but on the Fuji X-T1, Fuji have got it right! It feels good, it is bright, big and seems to move pretty consistently with my movements.
Another common complaint has been the focus speed and accurate… with the Fuji X-T1 they seemed to have fixed it! And man, the burst rate will compete with some top end DSLR’s too… watch the video, I give you a demo of the 8fps goodness!

It’s all in the Fujifilm X-T1 video…
Anyway, if you want to know more I suggest you watch the video, in the video I will tell you exactly why I chose the Fuji X-T1 over the Sony A7r, I also tell you what I like… and don’t like about my new Fuji X-T1!
