Eight years in the past, I obtained 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 type 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 remodeled, and with the successive X-T2, X-T3 an X-T4, I had a entrance row seat because the X Collection cameras got here of age over the subsequent few years.
This week, the subsequent chapter started in my X Collection 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 arms, my X Collection love was rekindled as soon as once more with this new hot-rodded fifth era mannequin. And with the common 3-way tilt LCD display, it felt like residence once more.
I gained’t delve into the specs right here, though you will discover them at my X-T5 into put up. 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-recognized 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 had been launched earlier this fall with the X-H2 and X-H2S, the X-T5 brings virtually all of that into the normal 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 group of pictures that I really feel completely present of what I’ve all the time beloved concerning the X Collection.
All of those are straight JPEGs, proper out of the digital camera. Most had been shot with the Velvia movie simulation, though the final photograph on this put up was made with the brand new Nostalgic NEG movie sim.
I’ll positively be posting extra photos and performing some evaluate posts and movies for the X-T5 after the brand new yr. For now, get pleasure from these snowy pictures and have an ideal vacation season!
