Fuji X-T1 gallery - part II: On the road in action-packed Hong Kong
posted Tuesday, March 18, 2014 at 12:33 PM EST
When it was time to leave for a two-week vacation in my one-time home of Hong Kong, I wanted to take a camera that was at once compact and yet fully-featured. I'm traveling light, so I didn't want to be weighed down with an SLR, but I knew there would be plenty of good photo opps that would demand more than a fixed-lens compact could offer. The recently-launched Fujifilm X-T1 fit that bill nicely, and so that was the camera I chose to bring along.
I've just uploaded a set of 19 gallery images shot in the first week of my trip, and I have to say, so far I'm really enjoying shooting with the X-T1. Along with it, I've brought a portrait grip and three lenses -- the Fujinon XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS, XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS, and XF35mmF1.4 R -- plus a small EF-X8 flash strobe, although I've not yet felt the need to resort to using the flash. The combination is relatively light, portable, and yet quite versatile.
I'll be filing the first part of my Fuji X-T1 shooter's report soon, and sharing my opinions on this compact enthusiast mirrorless camera. Given how popular the X-T1 is proving to be with our readers, though, I didn't want to delay getting these shots online for you.
I've shared a few of my shots at reduced resolution in this article, but full-res versions of all are available in the gallery, both in JPEG and raw formats. Check the Fuji X-T1 gallery for an in-depth look, and scroll down for more Hong Kong shots to get an idea of how it performs in a wide range of shooting conditions!
Stay tuned, we'll have you much more to come on the Fujifilm X-T1!
