Classic Shot

Posted

I never warmed to digital cameras. Despite the advantages, spinning soft dials and ploughing through menus to control basic camera features felt hideously unintuitive. Then Fuji’s X series arrived and completely won me over.

Finally, a digital camera with an aperture ring on the lens and a dedicated shutter speed dial where I can shoot the way I learnt to on a film SLR. There’s an immediate connection to your actions and your shots that you just don’t get with on-screen menus. And that’s why the X‑E1 is now my trusty shooter.
