National Geographic recently released a list of their Top 10 Compact Cameras for Travellers, and we are proud to say that 2 of our FujiFilm X-Camera Systems made it onto the list, those being the FujiFilm X-T1 and the FujiFilm X100T.
National Geographic give their reasons as to why these two cameras systems are ideal for travellers.
Classy, retro styling in the form of a 1970s film SLR. But instead of optics, the camera uses a pentaprism, which holds one of the best electronic viewfinders yet. This camera is quick—its autofocus is quick, its image review is quick, and it shoots tons of pictures in a row without hanging up. The small size of the camera and lenses means that, even if you decide to carry the whole system with you on your travels, your bag will be less than half the size of a standard DSLR’s.
If you aren’t interested in carrying a full camera kit when you travel but still want to exercise your artistic side, go simple. Try this non-interchangeable-lens camera that boasts a 35mm-equivalent field of view and a hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder. This retro-looking camera boasts FujiFilm’s X-Trans CMOS sensor array. It’s a radically different way of separating colors, leading to small-sensor image quality that rivals its full-frame competitors. Only having a single field of view might seem too simple, but limited choice can often lead to better pictures. It’s nice not to be burdened with carrying too many lenses and accessories.
