Any Fuji Shooters in here?

Mon Nov 04, 2019 1:59 pm

After nearly 40 years of haulin around Canon rigs for a number of newspapers and wire services, I have moved on from Photojournalism (well I still do some shooting for small publications in New England). However, I no longer have the desire or need to pack 3 honking huge DSLRs (2x 1DX and a 7DmkII) and assorted glass when smaller and lighter rigs will suffice. I began the move over to Fuji in early 2017, starting off with an X-Pro2 as well as an X-T2, later an X-T3 and an X-E3 (mainly for street shooting) with a variety of Fujinon glass. I own both of their long tele-zooms 50-140 2.8 and 100-400 4.5-5.6, seriously looking at the 200m f2 with the 1.4 teleconverter but at $5k a pop, not sure it would pay for itself, I would likely end up renting it if needed. I did quite a bit of aviation shooting back in the 70s and 80s and like most here no doubt, purely for pleasure. However, I am thinking of giving it another go in the digital era. So, if there are any Fuji shooters out there, I'd like to hear about your experiences, gear, and luck with getting your work accepted here, I hear it is tough. I shoot stock as well, so indeed, I know all about rejects.

Maybe a good idea to try to message photographers using Fujifilm to get some feedback, while displaying EXIF info is optional and search doesn't allow to filter by make and model you can try the Google search query below to find them,

site:airliners.net make fujifilm

For example the photo below was shot with an X-T3,

I'm a both Canon User and Fuji user. My fuji is XT-20 which is not pretty new compare to some latest machines like XT3 and XT30. I use Canon and Canon Lens for spotting most of time as I don't have long length lens for Fuji right now. So I don't have too much experience to share about using Fuji to spot. But I do have some shots which have been accepted were done by Fuji with a not very good lens.

The first six images in this link are by Fuji XT20 with 16-55. But as you can see all of them were on the ground (not moving), I won't comment a lot on it's focusing system because I haven't spotted with that a lot.
Hope that help.

Regards,
Harry

Hello! I am 100% fuji user. I shoot the X-T1, with 18-135 3.5-5.6 and 100-400 4.5-5.6. I absolutely love my camera and lenses, amazing quality and get great out of camera raw photos. Only struggle i run into is not being able to go under ISO200. True raw in fujifilm is only ISO-200-1600 which is the main struggle for me. But other then that I love my camera and it works great.
