Camera shrine

Trust your own judgement, not the equipment fundamentalists.

Writing for this site means I read a lot of other articles, and associated comments, on blogs and other sites. I have been struck by the fervent brand loyalty I often see. It seems that for many photographers their choice of camera is an act of faith, bordering on the fundamentally religious in its intensity.

For and against Canon EOS for my photography

I worked my way through the Pros and cons of the Fuji X system for my photography. I now need to do similar for my long standing Canon system to determine whether I can make a complete switch to Fuji.

The Journey

Getting Serious with Fuji

I established that the Fuji X series would meet most of my photography needs in my last post on the subject. I was at the point where I needed to start using it seriously to understand what the Fuji system could do.

The sailing ship effect and DSLRS

The times they are a'changing. The dominant camera technology of the last fifty or more years is being challenged. Digital photography means the single lens reflex (SLR) camera is facing the prospect of being replaced by mirrorless system cameras or even, for many users, by the smartphone.

First year with Fuji X system

It was late spring 2013, I had made my decision and bought a Fuji X-E1 with 18-55mm kit lens. I would now start on a long term evaluation to establish whether the Fuji system could replace my excellent, but too heavy, professional Canon outfit.

Changing systems: a big decision

I have only changed camera systems twice in my 45 years in photography and one of those was from Canon FD mount to the Canon EOS system with autofocus. I share the reason behind my current change and the decision making process.
