X20 for a budding enthusiast?
9 months ago

Hey guys....

I get to shoot with good DSLRs(7D, 5dmkIV) frequently at work. I was your typical smartphone shooter before. Always had an interest in photography but the learning curve and expense made it easy to talk myself out of purchasing a camera for personal use. I feel I have an eye for composition and I really enjoy taking pictures though.

Anyway - I've been eyeing the Fuji mirrorless line for about a month now and reading up on the various models. I've spent brief times wanting everything from an x10 to an Xpro-1.

I think I may end up settling on an x-e1 just because of the heavy discounts on them - but something about the compactness of the x20 is calling to me as well.

Do you guys feel the x20 would be a good camera to start out with to help me develop my skills as a photographer - learning about how to make great shots? Does the x20 lend itself to shooting in manual mode?

My main interests of shooting include...

-Street photography

-Portraits

-Travel/documentary style shots of my road trips

I also really want to shoot a lot of B&W(cliche, i know)

Thanks in advance for any help.

*EDIT* Also I would like some input on the quality of the JPEGs. I have CS3 at the office but post production is somewhat intimidating and something I'm still learning. I'd basically just like quality images I can upload or make the occasional 5x7/8x10 print of.
