X-T1 goes to Beach...

I spent the Easter Weekend "Camping" in Tofino on the Wet & Wild West Coast of Vancouver Island.

I was curious to see whether the Fuji could satisfy me as a landscape camera. If so, it would be a welcome relief coming from my shlepping a Canon 1 DsIII & glass all over the place when travelling...

I have found a out a few things.

1> Colour, Tonality are excellent IMHO.

2> Handling is quite satisfying & closer to a WSIWG experience than my DSLR's.

3> The Fuji Lenses are little jewels. the 55-200 is excellent but not a substitute for the Canon 100-400 for wildlife.

4> Maximizing the quality of detail requires an alternative RAW processor from my default Lightroom. (Iridient has potential but the green fringing around tree branches etc is intolerable to me. Capture One is probably my personal best choice for the printable images when fine detail needs to be maximized.)

All in all though, I am quite pleased with what this little system can do in such a small package.

A few samples:

McKenzie Beach Surf

Low Tide: Middle Beach.

Mussels galore

Rain forest Breather

Tide returning...

Evening Light...

Day is waning...

Beach foam

Camper's view (56@1.2)

A few more here:


I think my Canon bodies may be going to market...

Any C&C welcome.
