Blues

I've shot Canon cameras for years. With my enthusiasm waning, tired of lugging around a large DSLR and heavy lenses, I needed a change.

Mirrorless cameras are dominating camera sales. After reading countless camera reviews, watching YouTube videos, I purchase the APS-C format Fuji X-T3 camera and a few lenses.

Coming from a DSLR background, it took me a while to embrace the X-T3. Learning the new mirrorless system took time. Setting up the dials, button configuration, and ergonomics were a challenge.

The lighter setup renewed my enthusiasm for photography. Fuji listens to their customers, continue to improve with firmware updates, and new model releases.

Photography should be fun. I love shooting Fuji; they get what photographers want.

FUJIFILM X-T3

The Fujifilm X-T3 is a versatile mirrorless camera designed for landscape and action photographers. It has a APS-C format 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor. With all the manual controls on top of the camera, it makes it fun to use.

FUJIFILM X100V

The FUJIFILM X100V is the fifth-generation of the X100 series camera. The popular 100V boasts the same APS-C format 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor as the T-3. It come with a fixed 23mm F 2.0 lens that is fast and sharp wide-open. It's a point & shoot on steroids.

FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR

The 16mm 1.4 is a wide-angle prime lens. Its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture affords increased control over depth of field and benefits working in low-light conditions. It's a lens that I don't use as much as I should. For me, it's more of a specialty lens.

FUJIFILM XF 35mm f/2 R WR

The FUJIFILM XF 35mm f/2 R WR is one of the so-called Fujinon lenses. Its small, fast, and is weather sealed—one of my favorite lenses. I'll probably sell this lens since I purchased the 100v camera.

FUJIFILM XF 50mm f/2 R WR

The FUJIFILM XF 50mm f/2 R WR is also one of the so-called Fujinon lenses. Its small, fast, weather-sealed, and has superior auto-focus. I use a lot for indoor sports and tighter landscapes.

FUJIFILM XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR

The FUJIFILM XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR is the sharpest mid-zoom prime that Fuji makes. It's my favorite lens for concert photography. The lens also focuses close, which makes it great for creating beautiful macros.

The FUJIFILM XF 50-140mm f/2.8 /2.8 R LM OIS WR is a Fujifilm's Red Badge lenses. Red Badge series lenses are Fuji's best lenses. It's has a constant 2.8 aperture, weather-sealed, and has OIS. Any serious photographer has this lens in there bag.

The FUJIFILM XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens is also a Red Badge lens. It's a versatile lens that I use for wildlife photography. When it's combined with 1.4 extenders, it gives you 560mm.
