It's been a couple weeks since I first recieved my Fuji XT-1, and I've been enjoying photography more than I have in quite a while. I relish the fact I can carry an entire camera system without feeling weighed down, in a small shoulder bag with room to spare for daily carry items.
My camera is now becoming an essential item wherever I go, and that's something I couldn't do very well with my heavy, large Canon system. That's one of the reasons I bought a Panasonic GF1 when I first came out, and it was a great camera for it's time. My 7D put it's quality to shame, but now I have a small camera who's quality has been compared to full frame cameras.
The real test comes this weekend, when I attend round 5 of Formula Drift at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, WA. I've been an avid drift photographer in the past and evergreen is very familiar turf. This will be the first time I've shot drifting without a Canon SLR in tow.
Panning will be a piece of cake with this camera, I'm curious to see if the autofocus can keep up in the infield, when you have cars coming at you sideways at 60+ mph. It will be a fun and informative weekend and I can't wait to share. I'll be writing an article for drifted.com and you'll be able to check out my select photographs there.
