Thought for the day…” Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle”.
“Always remember that the future comes one day at a time”.
I often get asked what camera I am using to take the photos. Previously, it was the Panasonic FZ150 but now I have upgraded to the Fuji X-E1. Both cameras have their good points, but the quality of the jpeg images from the Fuji is so good. Far less time spent with editing on the computer now, as the pictures straight from the camera are so good. The kit lens (18-55mm) is brilliant, and it produces fantastically sharp images, helped by an APS-C sized sensor. The negative thing about the camera is that it does not make good videos, hence the Panasonic is still in the bag for the times when a good video is needed. But for still photos, the Fuji X-E1 is hard to beat. Not perfect, but no camera is, but a great camera. As many people have said, it MAKES you want to take more photos. And it does !
The Panasonic has only a smaller CMOS sensor, but does have a 24X zoom lens, and an LCD screen that can be moved. Initially I thought that a tiltable screen was a gimmick, but after a time you appreciate just how useful it is. Going back to the Panasonic after handling the Fuji, you realize just how cheap and plasticky it feels, but it can produce some good images (and videos), as the photos on the website show. But more and more, the Fuji X-E1 is the camera that goes with me and the Panasonic is gradually being retired. But it is the end result that counts, regardless of the camera that has been used.
