X-T1 meets male model Michalis Stratoudakis
Over the next few weeks I will be presenting some of the models and the images I produced with the Fujifilm X-T1. I will be including all exposure info for all shots and some comments about the performance of the X-T1, good and bad.
Sure, there were some moments of frustration over the weekend, but as a seasoned photographer I marched on. One such occasion was when i tried focusing with 2 people in the frame and strong back-light. That is the type of lighting situation that can really freak out the X-T1. The first and foremost AF issue with this camera is the strong backlight situation. Its known to Fuji and from what I have been told by an insider, they are working on it. So, yes, I missed that particular shot, but I moved on. I reframed knowing now what the camera didn’t like. Auto ISO worked nonstop all weekend and the high ISO performance was excellent, especially for some of the backstage stuff which was in some really dark spots. There were times when the camera would feel hot, but this was normal and only once did it sort of freak out on me by not responding. I quickly turned it off and waited a few seconds, and then it was back to business. Overall, the end result is that I am very impressed by the little X-T1. Just loving it!
