Travel photography demands high technical performances of a camera. A suitable camera should be able to reliably deal with constantly changing lighting conditions (dynamic range, ISO-performance, white balance) and react as fast as possible to spontaneous moments and movements (autofocus), just to mention the most important requirements. Among the “must have” of such an all-rounder camera are anyway colour-balanced and sharp photos.

Since the market launch back in 2012, I have been shooting with the Canon 5D Mark III and numerous prime lenses from Canon. The 5D delivers excellent picture quality, is fast-paced, and has a very good ISO performance for most situations. It comes quite close to such all-rounder. However, throughout the past four years I often met and exceeded the limitations of the 5D, which drove me crazy at times and brought me somewhat to the point of despair. These weaknesses include in particular its size, its crazy high weight (12kg in total with all lenses) and its poor dynamic range.

For my trip through Morocco in October, I got the opportunity to photograph with the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 to test the camera thoroughly. I have been wanting to try a mirrorless-system for a long time. Nonetheless, a full frame mirrorless camera would be no option for me. Full-frame mirrorless offers zero advantages compared to full-frame DSLRs in lens size and weight (only the 70-200f.2.8 weights 1,5kg!). So if you have a bag full of gear, the only area where you can save space and weight is the camera body alone which isn’t a big benefit. Initially I was very sceptical towards the idea of changing from a full frame to a supposedly weaker APS-C system. Given my high expectations regarding picture quality, I could hardly imagine that an APS-C camera could nearly keep up with a full frame camera.

My resume after travelling for two weeks with the X-Pro2? I’m just about to sell my entire Canon gear and switch to Fujifilm. Here are the reasons.

Normally the basic editing tools from the app are enough for me, but I miss the Fuji Film Simulations (… Fuji should wake up in my opinion and make an extension for that …). With that extension I can from Apple Photos, open the Fuji raw converter, choose a film simulation, save back in Photos the modified JPG. Seems to work. You can call whatever picture editor you like and it costs only 1€”

I always enjoy reading other people’s blogs/posts about their journey to switching over from one of the other manufacturers.  I get that some people get fed up with size and weight issues (their camera rigs, people), others feel like manufacturers aren’t listening to what the people want or that Fuji cameras, and their output, are just flat out better than the rest.

Me?  I don’t know…I love(d) my Nikons.  I did sell off my D750, D7200 and 97.8% of the Nikon lens collection…but something inside me won’t let me cut the D300 bodies loose.  It’s not that my X-T1 has left me wanting with what I shoot (surf, turf and…whatever) but I love the output of that generation of Nikons
