Fuji X-T1 Shooter’s Report Part II: When the sun goes down…


posted Thursday, May 15, 2014 at 5:09 PM EST


Last week, I updated my Fuji X-T1 gallery with another batch of images shot with the handsome mirrorless shooter in Hong Kong, and promised that the second part of my ongoing Shooter's Report would be available shortly. Well, I'm a man of my word, so if you've been waiting -- good news, the wait is over!

In Part II of the Shooter's Report, I trek across Hong Kong in search of an elusive shipwreck, and then roam around the town to see how the X-T1 handles low-light and night shooting. (Not to mention the vivid color of Hong Kong's famous -- but rapidly disappearing -- neon lights.) And I give the image stabilization system of the X-T1's 18-55mm kit lens a good workout, as well: a tack-sharp, multi-second exposure shot with the camera braced against nothing more solid than a slightly wobbly temporary railing. And that's only one of quite a few shots where Fuji's capable camera left me feeling rather impressed.


My second Fuji X-T1 Shooter's Report also gives some more thoughts on the camera's built-in panorama function, and concludes -- back in the daytime -- with my departure from Hong Kong at the end of a two-week trip. Part III of the report is underway now, so if you have any requests for features to test (or things you want to know about this incredibly popular camera), be sure to leave them in the comments below.

And in the meantime, hop on over to the Fuji X-T1 review, and read Part II of the Shooter's Report. (Or if you missed the first part, start there instead!)
