Too bad you can’t trust the in-camera photo stitching on an X-T1 enough to take a picture of the President speaking on the South Lawn of the White House… the colors are horrible as well.

The Fuji X-T1 is absolutely the wrong choice if you’re a studio photographer.  It won’t sync properly with my strobes and the EVF totally sucks.  Here’s the best I could do in a headshot session.  I think I’m gonna have to get my DSLR back…

I cannot believe how fuji have let me down. I choose this camera for its special features but the bast*rds just keep sending new updates adding a tonne of stuff i really didn't want. This camera is as old as the hills. When will they stop messing with it? Its never going to be useful.

I know that firmware updates keep coming. I can only hope that one day Fuji will figure out the relationship between a silk purse and a sow’s ear.

I am sure a DSLR can produce better colours…

I guess the only question would be: you are kidding right? You have to be ironic about what you write below your pictures. But as I assume you are I wanted to let you know I really like your sence of humour.

I am nothing if not serious in all that I do.

A Black and White Macro shot on a Fuji X-E1??!?  Might as well have used a rock as a camera!B&W jpeg modes, f/2.8, 1/40, ISO 200

I thought I’d pull out the X-E1 to use the Black & White preset for an engagement shoot.  What a waste of time!  I could have got much nicer smiles shoving a larger DSLR in their faces! Plus now I’m bored and missing photoshop.

When I go around with my crappy fuji, I don’t expect to have straight lines nor be able to have a responsive shutter. It is what it is. Plus, 1x1 makes everything HIP or so the cool kids say. That should mask the issues.

Whoever claimed that the crappy X100S could be used for candid photography ought to have their eyes examined… Clearly this failed shot could have been so much better if taken with a 5-pound DSLR and a 300mm lens.
