To commit or not to commit?
So, now that you know the basics that set this camera apart, can you start picturing yourself with it?
Overall, this camera has an incredible set of features and build quality, but is more suited to creatives who want to start shooting stills and movies right away thanks to its more intuitive handling and controls. It’s small enough to take with you on outings and discreet enough so that you can enjoy shooting without having all the attention on you. This makes it perfect for capturing natural, candid moments. And the Film Simulation Modes makes it easy to shoot movies with different colour effects from the start, which saves you time trying to figure out how to do it in Photoshop and lets you explore new, creative film styles. Who knows, you may even find a signature look?
If you’re a hobbyist photographer who is interested in switching from DSLR to mirrorless, this is truly a great option.
The price for this ultra-cool camera companion varies (depending on specials), but is typically R18,095. Right now, the camera body is on sale at Outdoorphoto for only R16,895 and comes with a free battery. The camera is also available as a kit, either with an 18-55mm lens or a 16-80mm lens, and each kit also includes a free battery.
Still curious, read this blog by Fujifilm. It explains all the features in a way that makes sense even if you’re not that clued up on camera speak.
