Bought Three Cameras this Year!

Some of you will remember that back in March I bought a Fuji XT-1 to use as a travel/take anywhere, anytime camera. I've been very impressed with the results. Very, very impressed.

So it will come as a surprise to you to know that after just 7 months of ownership I'm selling it.

I kind of tripped over a Fiuji XT-2 that someone had bought new as a back-up camera and never used it other that testing it to see if it worked OK. Oh yes, it also comes with the Fuji battery grip. I just could not resist it in spite of being delighted with my XT-1.

Snap Graham, I have upgraded to an XT-2 and grip as well, as you say they give very good results and are small and good as a go anywhere camera.

Re: Bought Three Cameras this Year!

I knew that it was the right time to upgrade when I found myself trying to do the numbers for an XT-3 Charles. It was pure co-incidence that this XT-2 turned up at the same time and I just could not resist it.

Since I dipped my toe in the water with Fuji I'm smitten.

Re: Bought Three Cameras this Year!

I am keen on them as well, the strange thing is that the newer "more advanced" XH-1 seems to be disappointing a lot of buyers, on one site there are 15 in the used section and in another large site there are 14, while the XT2 is getting rarer on the used sites .
I just wish they would bring out a full frame mirror less, both the Canon and Nikon are well priced for the camera but the lenses are expensive.

Re: Bought Three Cameras this Year!

Well they do make the GFX-50s, which has been out for a while now, is a mirrorless MF camera. If they did make a FF one I doubt it would be any cheaper.

However, it does not attract good reviews with crit of the slow AF (unlike the XT range), only 3 frames/sec and 1/125 synch speed.

I think they have shot themselves in the foot with the XH-1 now that the XT-3 is here.and the only thing going for it is the in body stabilisation. It defeats the point of the XTs being bigger, heavier and does not have the same top plate layout that everyone loves. Both of the Fujis I have are reminiscent of my old SV Pentax and Olympus OM-2SP.

Re: Bought Three Cameras this Year!

I was looking at a review (I think it was DP or Camera Lab ) and in fact the in body stabilisation is only fully effective with the top lenses and is only 3.5 with the rest (70% ).
I find cameras are getting like cars, where they are mostly the same and designed by marketing men not engineers. Must be getting old I guess, there is nothing that excites me photography wise at the moment.
