I left the big and brawny DSLR and its bevy of lenses in Canada and packed only the Fujifilm X E-1 and the 18-55mm kit lens in my carry-on bag. Destination: Maui. All the images on this page were shot as jpgs and minimally processed.
The photo above was a ‘drive-by-shooting’ from our swanky rental car upgrade, our Maui exploring vehicle:
The X E-1 excelled in this environment. No complaints.
Back to Salt Spring Island via Vancouver and Victoria. A weather transition.
The tiny size, very good optics and low cost qualify, for me at least, is an excellent no hassle camera.
Restricting myself, at least for now, to this one lens means the X E-1 will go everywhere with me. And after a few thousand images, the sensor remains dust free; an advantage to not changing lenses.
Restricting myself, at least for now, to the excellent JPEGs this camera produces rather than shooting RAW means very little post processing. Perfect for my Salt Spring photo of the day website, travel and family images.
