I just passed the 4-month mark of switching my primary camera from the Canon 60d to the Fuji X-T10. Here are a few brief thoughts about the switch so far.

First, one of the best points about the switch so far is that it is so compact! It is half the weight and size of my 60d. It is much easier, and much more comfortable to bring it with me. I don’t feel like I am lugging around a monstrosity. Using my Peak Design Capture clip is much nicer as well as it doesn’t pull so much on my belt and gets in the way even less than my 60d did.

Second, the JPEGs straight out of camera are amazing. I came from shooting RAW images exclusively on my 60d and figured I’d do the same on the Fuji. After the first week or so, I was finding that I would do little or no editing to the JPEG files themselves. Any editing I did do didn’t require the range that RAW files provide. So now I shoot mostly in JPEG and don’t spend nearly as much time in post processing.

Third, BOKEH! I splurged on the 35mm f1.4 lens and I couldn’t be happier. I got the “nifty-fifty” for the 60d and thought it did a good job of blurring backgrounds, but this Fuji glass is on another level. The transition from in-focus to out-of-focus areas is buttery smooth. Of course, this means that  I must also eventually get the coveted 56mm f1.2.

That’s it for now!
