One Full Year Shooting Fujifilm

One year ago I made a huge decision to change all my Canon equipment to Fuji series Mirrorless equipment, I sold up my reliable Canon 1Dmk3 and 1Dmk4 and the 70D I was using as a back up along with that I sold up the 300mm f2.8 L and the old classic 80-200 f2.8. it was a hard decision but there was no going back.


In came the my new Fuji Xt2s and the 100-400 with the 50-140 f2.8 and some battery grips to complete the set up,

Having has some experience shooting with Fuji with the original X-Pro1 I felt right at home with the system and the menus which definitely helped when it came to setting up the shooting style I was looking for.

My main subject is Motorsport which everyone following my social media is well aware of, I have been using the XT2 for the full of 2018 season at some of the UKs larger motorsport events, I covered the MSA British Touring Car Championship, Bennetts British Superbike Championship The Annual Silverstone Classic and the FIA World Endurance Championship. Some of the image examples below.

As you can see from the examples above the Fuji system is more than capable of producing some of the most impressive image quality among the big hitters, Now I am well aware its not the camera taking the shot its the operator who has the eye for the shot but the kit helps the operator to perform better.

When shooting the Silverstone classic I was luck enough to run into Carl Hare of Fujifilm who was willing to let me run off with his Fuji XH1 which was the bigger new addition to the Fuji family at that time, (XT3 Now Launched)

Again I was amazed by the performance of this amazing piece of kit the way it performed was seamless and with the 100-400 it was simply outstanding. Never missing a moment of the action.

Now the Motorsport season has come to an end for me in 2018 I have started to develop one of my XT2 cameras into a Landscape camera using it to shoot travel photography in Budapest to shooting my local area in the Scottish Borders,

I recently bought the 23mm f2 lens for travel and the 16-55 f2.8 for Landscape over the next few months. Image examples below

So what I am trying to say is after making the big choice to jump to a new system for me has been a happy successful decision, The image quality is outstanding but the cameras themselves are just great fun to shoot with, They bring a new enjoyment to shooting what ever scene you are looking for. The EVF is so helpful to capture the perfect exposure and composition with the X-Trans sensor producing some of the best colour rendering I have seen from a digital camera system.

Once again thanks everyone for the Continued support and hopefully there will be more opportunities in 2019. I have started doing some Static shooting my work place in the Scottish Borders Shooting for Jaguar / Land Rover. It’s amazing to work with a superb brand. I look forward to seeing some of you in 2019 and once again please follow my social media links on the page to keep up with all the goings on around cmc-images.
