The joy of getting out and shooting
When I first bought the Fujifilm XT2, I was so excited that I just wanted to share my enthusiasm with my photography peers. It was a honeymoon that did not last very long, soon I ran into the “worming” noise issue that so many Fuji photographers had written about. What stressed me out was when people asked, “how was the new camera”. I just replied “fine”, I was not a happy camper. Combine this we my frustration in getting the very complex autofocusing system to work at a level that I had seen on youtube. Well my hit rate of sharp images where dismal.
These two things had me contemplating my new choice in camera and if it was not for a single thing, I would have sold it. When you have the XT2 in your hands, you are smiling. The noise issue becomes irrelevant and at the time I did not own a Fujinon telephoto lens. So just did not photograph anything that moved. I was spent weekend exploring remote patches of bush with my son, something I never did with the DSLR. I could have, but I did not and that was because photography with a DSLR for me was boring. Looking for photographic opportunities that was beyond my normal genre of wildlife made photography fun again.
