The event kicked off with your standard meet & greets where I ran into Matt Granger and a number of journalists from various photo magazine publications and online blogs including Photoinsomnia and Shotkit just to name but a few. It then proceeded with presentations highlighting the new features and improvements, but the most engaging part of the presentation was when guest speaker, X-Photographer & Fujifilm Ambassador, Andrew Hall, came up on stage and talked about his experience using various X Series cameras, the pros and cons
