Hey guys, got a few emails asking about these cameras and decided to shoot a quick video, as you already know, I like the Fuji X Trans sensor and although I will pass on the Fuji X-M1-I find the X-E1 small enough and I much prefer the direct controls I wasn’t surprised at how much interest this latest Fuji addition generated,
more after the break
the smallest form factor in the Fuji X line up and if you are either a fan of the X trans sensor looking for a tiny body or just want to give it a try and use it for your vintage lenses, you can’t go wrong. Go for it. It is great to have a tiny body with a lens mount, the option to put serious glass on it (I am using this adapter for my Nikon lenses, this seller has them in different mounts). The Fuji X-M1body is currently in stock in black and silver (with and without the kit lens) here at Adorama and here at BH.
If sticking to Fujinon lenses, I would get the new 27mm pancake and the 18mm 2.0 in addition to the kit lens and be done with it.
I have to admit that the Ricoh GR is now my No 1 street camera, the hyper-focal distance setting is unbeatable and the sharpness of this lens/sensor combo is out of this world. And the camera looks like a boring, basic point and shoot – a big advantage when shooting street.
The GR can be preordered at Adoramaandat BH.
And finally the Sony RX100II, I loved the original RX100 – if you don’t need 24p video and don’t care about slightly better low light performance and the articulated LCD, it is every bit as good and you can save some cash since the price went down here at BH and here at Adorama.
I love the video quality this little gem produces and the 24p option and articulated LCD was enough for me to upgrade to the Sony RX100 mark II, you can get it here at BH or here at Adorama.
I came across an exceptionally clear, bubble free screen protector from Expershield, that’s right, you will have to look twice to see it is actually on, not a big believer in screen protectors, I have used them in the past, I have lost them and hated them, especially when using the LCD for video. This one stays on all my cameras, no transparency issues, no bubbles and I haven’t lost one yet. Sometimes it pays to pay a few bucks more and get a quality product.
