02 Feb Home to my roots with the Fuji X System
Source: Fujifilm Insider
I first got hooked on photography in the mid 1970s when I was about and my first SLR camera was a Pentax Spotmatic. At this time in my life I was training to become a teacher of Design and Technology and I used up nearly a whole terms grant to buy it. The Pentax was a superb piece of kit which gave me many hours of pleasure and never let me down. I then progressed onto the Olympus OM system and absolutely loved the styling and innovative design of the OM1 and OM2, with a truly compact body and beautiful ergonomics. I still use an OM4 and OM1n today mainly with Black and White film.
Since these early film days I would dread to think how many cameras I have owned, including the big Nikon and Canon bodies and more recently some OMD models but strangely, I now feel I have come home to my roots with the Fuji X system. For me the range of cameras that Fuji offer are the perfect blend of analogue and digital that deliver beautiful colours and amazing detail in a unique way. I did have a brief encounter with the X100 when it first came out in 2010 and I think this may have paved the way to where I am now. Some might say the camera is just a tool but I think for me it is something a little bit more personal.
