Going back to our roots – Fuji XE1
Posted on August 30, 2013
A few days ago I tweeted that I had gotten an idea for a post. It dawned on me that back when I shot film I was never worried about a color palette. I shot Kodak TRI-X 400 on a Canon F1 and that’s about it. My only concern was composition and doing my thing in the darkroom and printing process. Yes, I dodged and burned but that was about it. I never uploaded to the web, I mean it was 1994. Fast forward to today and all of a sudden we are faced with a multitude of things: camera model, full frame, aps-c, m43, high ISO, raw vs jpeg, lightroom, photoshop, ACR, and the list goes on. Isn’t that quite a list? I think so. Then all of a sudden Fuji comes out with the X-Series cameras and takes us back to our roots of film shooting in classic 35mm format. Simple dials, simple controls, aperture rings on lenses, classic aesthetics, and all with an immense IQ punch rivaling full frame goodness. With that said, breathe, shoot, and rekindle yourself with photography once again ― Fuji X-Series.
