FF = Fujifilm Forever :)
*WARNING: this short intro will contain personal opinions that do not want to offend those of you, who think different. FR knows that what I feel good with, might not be what you like. FR also likes the innovation Sony brings in many areas, including digital cameras and sensor technology, and we have applauded their new products in the past here on FujiRumors (and I will be forever grateful to Sony for the Walkman :) ). And yet, I’m sorry, I still love Fujifilm way more, as you could already read in my Sony Specs (A7rII) Vs. Fuji Fun (X-T1) comparison.
This Sunday I am at SonyAlphaRumors‘ home, and I won’t miss the opportunity to shoot with his new Sony A7rIII. I will start now to use it a couple of hours, so my very first impressions are only about ergonomics… and Fujifilm, for me personally, wins.
I don’t like the PASM dial, and the tactile retro controls of Fuji cameras is, for me, way more intuitive. I am convinced that, if you give a Fujifilm and Sony camera to an experienced photographer, who never shot with those brands, that person will feel immediatly more comfortable using the Fuji, because all the most important settings are just right there, clearly visible on dials. Shutter, ISO, Aperture, metering mode, AF mode and a lot more can be seen and set even with the camera turned off.
Yep, for me it’s like many other people say: the Fujifilm just disappears in your hands :).
But I am sure I will have fun playing around with the Sony A7rIII and look forward to shoot with it today.
You can see the Sony A7rIII in my hands here :)
When I shared the mixed zone yesterday, some of you wondered why it does not include any Fujifilm X-E3 related content.
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget that little beautiful camera.
In fact, I did plan a separate and dedicated X-E3 roundup, and here it is. Enjoy it :)
