Fuji X-T1: First batch of gallery images posted
posted Monday, February 3, 2014 at 9:07 AM EDT
I got lucky, and was the only person at IR headquarters when the Fuji X-T1 arrived. Who was going to stop me from taking it out for a weekend stroll?!?
We'll have you our lab First Shots soon, but in the mean time head over to our Fuji X-T1 gallery page and dive right in for some real world examples of what the X-T1 is capable of delivering. Our test sample didn't arrive with a kit lens, so I shot with the Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 lens, and tried for a good variety of shot types, field depths and ISOs given the short time that I had for this initial batch.
I also included a few examples of their film simulation modes. For anyone not familiar with these, most Fujis now come sporting modes designed to emulate some of their more lauded 35mm films, and can impart both subtle and in a few cases not-so-subtle effects to the image. For my tastes these are far more than traditional digital filters, and when engaged can even alter the way I compose a shot. In this first gallery batch are examples of several different black & white and sepia film modes, as well as a few others like Velvia (used on the lake sunset shot to enhance the saturation of the sky).
