If you follow us on Instagram, you might have seen that we announced a pretty big life change this week. No, we didn’t elope. We’re not moving and we’re not expecting.
Rather, after four faithful years, we traded in our Canon 5D D-SLR and made a switch to a smaller, lighter camera body—a Fuji X-E1. It was tough to part with a camera that accompanied me to numerous continents and states, but it was also time.
Today was our first day of shooting with the Fuji and I think we were both impressed by its ease of use, beautiful colors, and the sheer size (or lack thereof). We spent a lovely day in Brooklyn wandering around, eating barbecue at Fette Sau, and putting the new camera through its paces.
All of these shots are straight from the camera, with virtually no post-processing—ranging from f/1.4 to f/16, ISO200 to ISO6400. There’s a learning curve, for sure, coming from a full-frame professional D-SLR to a mirrorless system, but so far, so good.
