    Beautiful images and thanks for posting. I shot Fuji for 11 years, with many of the cameras you have here. They are beautiful works of art and very useable. I’m a wedding/events/gig photographer here in Perth, Australia, and just because of what was required of my files and the look I needed, I recently swapped over fully to Nikon FF, for all of my professional work. However, I do miss the slightly smaller bodies and lenses and the RAF files which are infinitely useable and so easy to get the desired look in post-processing. Unfortunately, I sold all of my Fuji gear, and now that I would like to get a X-H1 or X-T2, with the 18 or 23mm 1.4 lens for my personal wanderings, you cannot buy or find one for sale anywhere. Even the new gear is totally out of stock in the camera stores. I’m not sure what Fuji is doing, but they are very popular at the moment.

      Hi Phillip,
      Great to hear your comments. I think you hit the nail on the head by mentioning the lighter, more compact nature of the Fujifilm X cameras. As you mainly shoot weddings and events, your needs are going to be different to mine, and I am guessing that many other travel photographers will have similar needs as my own. I shot with Nikon full frame DSLR’s for years before switching systems. It was a giant leap of faith, but for me, I will never go back. After printing 100cm prints from the original X-Pro 1, I was more blown away by the image quality than any worries about the camera’s quirks. For me, photography is a very personal part of my life, and I think the user has to have cameras that feel right in their hands and have some kind of a connection with the company ethos. I just loved how Fujifilm kept sending firmware updates to users to tweak the system. That is why the Fujifilm bodies and lenses have found a permanent place in my bag. I really hope that you feel the same way about your Nikon equipment and continue to enjoy photography as much as I do. Best wishes,

      What can the Nikon do that the Fujifilm cannot? I really don’t understand accept better on higher ISO but these days DXO and Topaz can fix that.
      For me carrying a smaller gear is a more stealthy way to photograph weddings and events. People don’t get as scared and uncomfortable as when I shot Nikon and Canon. For me that gets me better results and in the moment shots.I print big and never ever had complaints from couples, companies or magazines about the quality.

    Fabulous colours in great reportage, thank you Laurie. Also great insight into the evolution of a camera system to suit your needs which many readers will recognise.

      Hi David,
      Thank you for your kind words about the article. I always found that Fujifilm was a leader in rendering colours, having a long history in slide film which I personally enjoyed using, which seems to have continued into their digital cameras. They have definitely listened to photographers and their needs in creating the mirrorless system. I think that some of the other camera manufacturers could learn a thing or two from the Fujifilm philosophy. Best wishes,
