Field report: shooting a portrait essay with the Fuji X-E1:

Don's Passion opener

I recently had the luck to visit a good friend in Texas. I packed light for this trip, one compact tripod, one X-E1 body and three lenses, total weight for camera/lenses just under 1300 grams, including a Nikon/Fuji X adapter.
This was the first time I used the Fuji X-E1 for a portrait session. Can it replace a Pro DSLR and deliver equal results?
