"Mateusz GĂłrny - a trained navigator - sailor, photographer by passion. The first camera as a child I received from my grandfather on Christmas, which was like a bean seed. Waiting a few years to germinate, when I saved from spending money on my first digital compact camera made by Pentax. A year later, I took the first place in the category of "Joy" in the first edition of the polish Grand Photo Competition by National Geographic. As a reward I got the first DSLR camera, which was beyond my reach - Nikon D70s. Thanks to believe in themselves and simply disappeared in photography for good. Since then, itâ€™s been more than 10 years. What inspires me? Fleeting moments and gestures... a real emotion... Everything - even the most ordinary daily activities - can be a wonderful inspiration to work if you just look a little deeper."
My first Fujifilm camera was Fuji X100s bought 3 years ago. Thanks to the fact that the camera was light, I always had it with me. As a result of a small and unobtrusive construction I could take pictures unnoticed. I was closer to the photographed events which resulted in better photographs. I felt also, that the manual, old-fashioned controls enhanced my user experience.
After some time, I noticed that for most of the time, my Nikon camera lies unused. I used Nikon only for special tasks, where Fuji X100s was not enough.
When Fuji showed up with the new Fuji XPro-2 camera, I decided to test it together with Olympus O-MD E-M5 Mark II. After two weeks I bought XPro-2 because for me it was more straight-forward camera without too many extra bells and whistles you wonâ€™t bother with anyway. Also you will get a great performance, handling and image quality directly from the camera. With others you will need a lot of post processing to get similar results. And one more thing… it looks phenomenally!
One year later I sold my Nikon DSLR and now I am shooting only with Fuji X cameras. It does not matter what and how you shootâ€¦ street, weddings, sport or landscape photography. It will help you to achieve the desired results.
Especially the possibility of direct viewing exposure compensation in the viewfinder and on the LCD screen is very convenient and useful solution, which saves a lot of time. Also, with the electronic shutter, I can do as many pictures as I like. I do not feel like an intruder. A situation where discretion is required in the reporter is a big advantage.
The most I love Fujifilm for simplicity of use all X cameras. You do not need to spend hours with the manual. Everything is close at hand, so you can concentrate on shooting.
Certainly, you still can find some differences between DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras, but much more important for me is a question of matching the camera to the specific work style.
Using Fuji Iâ€™m completely convinced that it is perfect system and it works perfectly!
