So relevant in 2018.

The Fuji XE1.

One of my biggest regret in life was selling my X-Pro1. I missed ever since the day I sold it. It was just the best camera ever made: It made me go shoot. That’s a rare quality. It helps that it had killer colours too!

So when I had the chance to get a second hand XE1 for $150USD, I jumped on it. Zero regrets. What a wonderful camera. No need to post process the pictures! They just look awesome!

 Everything you need, nothing you don’t.

 High ISO test. 23mm f/2.0 + Fuji XE1 at 3200 ISO.

 Dynamic range is quite extraordinary for a 2012 sensor designed back in 2010-2011.

Is the autofocus slow?
Yes, but not as slow as the X-Pro1. Quite fast with a 23mm f/2.0 WR.
Is the EVF grainy?
Yes, but better than the X-Pro1. So usable.

This the best camera to get for travelling around the world. Throw a small 23mm or 35mm f/2 and you got a solid compact Fuji for around $500.

High ISO is super legit. I never had a problem with the first generation of X-trans sensor.

This was the glory days of Fuji: They nailed the colour tones and every cameras after the first gen are slowly drifting away from those gorgeous colour.
