Eight years in the past, I bought to check a brand new digital camera that hadn’t even been introduced but. It was the Fujifilm X-T1, and with its excessive efficiency and small, rugged kind issue, it was the world’s first weather-sealed, quick motion succesful outdoor-ready mirrorless digital camera.
Immediately falling in love with the X-T1, my total images life was reworked, and with the successive X-T2, X-T3 an X-T4, I had a entrance row seat because the X Sequence cameras got here of age over the subsequent few years.
This week, the subsequent chapter started in my X Sequence life once I snagged the final X-T5 in inventory at my native retailer. As quickly as I opened the field and put the digital camera in my fingers, my X Sequence love was rekindled as soon as once more with this new hot-rodded fifth technology mannequin. And with the common 3-way tilt LCD display, it felt like residence once more.
I received’t delve into the specs right here, though you’ll find them at my X-T5 into submit. I’ll simply say that with a chassis that’s nearer I dimension to the X-T1 than the X-T4, the brand new X-T5 felt like a well-known buddy. Inside, although, the X-T5 is actually the bionic model of the X-T1.
With the radically upgraded fifth gen options and specs that have been launched earlier this fall with the X-H2 and X-H2S, the X-T5 brings nearly all of that into the standard SLR type “X-T” physique that so many people love.
Being “magic hoar frost” season right here in Anchorage proper now, I instantly slapped a lens on it, (the XF70-300mm), bundled up and took it for a brief stroll round my neighborhood within the clear, chilly -10F diploma air. Over the subsequent 53 minutes, I shot a set of photographs that I really feel completely present of what I’ve at all times liked concerning the X Sequence.
All of those are straight JPEGs, proper out of the digital camera. Most have been shot with the Velvia movie simulation, though the final picture on this submit was made with the brand new Nostalgic NEG movie sim.
I’ll undoubtedly be posting extra pictures and performing some overview posts and movies for the X-T5 after the brand new 12 months. For now, get pleasure from these snowy photographs and have an amazing vacation season!
