Photographer's Testimonial

The X-E1 was my first FUJIFILM camera and right from day one, I was blown away by the incredible image quality and sharpness. I picked up this camera right in the middle of an aggressive shooting schedule in Europe and within a few short months, I was able to work with the X-E1 in 10 different countries spanning nearly every possible type of shooting condition. From that point on, I was hooked on the power and portability of mirrorless cameras and the X-E1 never left my side.

Photographer's Testimonial

My first FUJIFILM camera was the X-E1 and after a few days of testing, I was hooked. Upon reviewing my images from a shoot in Europe, I was blown away with the quality from the camera and the tack sharpness of the Fujinon XF lenses. Good things do come in small packages and the X-E1 is proof of that old saying. I was curious about the new mirrorless cameras that everyone was talking about and once I tried the FUJIFILM cameras, there was no looking back.
