Danielle has been the hero of our household this summer. She was there everyday to make to help with Carter and Paige – getting them to camps, to practices,and making sure they ate lunch.  I’m probably leaving a few things out!

But this post really isn’t about Danielle.  It’s about testing out a new camera system.  For years I’ve been a Canon shooter.  Starting with an AE-1P, then some point and shoot digitals, a Digital Rebel, and finally moving on to using the Canon 5D Mark II and Mark III for all my professional shoots.  Only thing I don’t like about those cameras is that they are big and heavy.

At the start of the year I purchased a Fuji X100s. It’s become my family camera.  Small, great images, easy to use.  More recently, I purchased a Fuji X-T1 and a couple of lenses.  Since it was a new system and I really wanted to get a feel for what it could do without the pressure of having to deliver on a client a session, I reached out to Danielle for a little help.

Think the X-T1 and I are going to get along just fine.
