We traveled to my mom's for Thanksgiving this year. I took my Canon gear to capture some portraits of my niece Gabby, but I also took my Fujifilm X-E2, which only arrived about a week ago. I was excited to put it through it paces in low light holiday documentary type situations. All of the images below are JPGs from the X-E2, with very little post processing. Just a little crop and some contrast, highlights, or shadows. I am using the film simulation of Black and White with the red filter applied. I will have to say that I can definitely understand why there is a movement to ditch the DSLR in favor of a mirrorless system like the X-E2.
The first image is my niece Gabby, I was able to isolate her by a window just before she was distracted by Aunt Marianne. The second image is family getting together via Skype. My brothers Dejan and Pete are in northern Irag and called to say Happy Thanksgiving. Of course we all gathered around the television to watch football and drink beer. My nephew Jaden stopped by my chair to get his picture taken, and my wife decided to take my photo on her toy (really a toy) camera. Finally, my brothers Michael and Josh laughing and telling stories, just before everyone started to head home for the evening.
The X-E2 performed magically and along with the X100s are my go to cameras. I love what these cameras are doing to my photography. Well done Fuji!
