Eight years in the past, I acquired to check a brand new digicam that hadn’t even been introduced but. It was the Fujifilm X-T1, and with its excessive efficiency and small, rugged kind issue, it was the world’s first weather-sealed, quick motion succesful outdoor-ready mirrorless digicam.
Immediately falling in love with the X-T1, my complete pictures life was remodeled, and with the successive X-T2, X-T3 an X-T4, I had a entrance row seat because the X Sequence cameras got here of age over the subsequent few years.
This week, the subsequent chapter started in my X Sequence life after I snagged the final X-T5 in inventory at my native retailer. As quickly as I opened the field and put the digicam in my fingers, my X Sequence love was rekindled as soon as once more with this new hot-rodded fifth technology mannequin. And with the common 3-way tilt LCD display, it felt like house once more.
I received’t delve into the specs right here, though you will discover them at my X-T5 into submit. I’ll simply say that with a chassis that’s nearer I measurement to the X-T1 than the X-T4, the brand new X-T5 felt like a well-recognized buddy. Inside, although, the X-T5 is actually the bionic model of the X-T1.
With the radically upgraded fifth gen options and specs that had been launched earlier this fall with the X-H2 and X-H2S, the X-T5 brings virtually all of that into the normal SLR model “X-T” physique that so many people love.
Being “magic hoar frost” season right here in Anchorage proper now, I instantly slapped a lens on it, (the XF70-300mm), bundled up and took it for a brief stroll round my neighborhood within the clear, chilly -10F diploma air. Over the subsequent 53 minutes, I shot a group of photographs that I really feel completely present of what I’ve at all times beloved concerning the X Sequence.
All of those are straight JPEGs, proper out of the digicam. Most had been shot with the Velvia movie simulation, though the final photograph on this submit was made with the brand new Nostalgic NEG movie sim.
I’ll positively be posting extra photos and doing a little overview posts and movies for the X-T5 after the brand new yr. For now, take pleasure in these snowy photographs and have an awesome vacation season!
