Fuji had whispered enough details about an upcoming unannounced model in the works, that I was already very interested to see the new camera. I had it for a few days – enough to do a preview and a comparison with the X-T2, not enough to do a full review, or to determine what the best video settings would be. Those videos will follow.
I certainly look forward to spending more time with this camera – a few days really whet my appetite to try more of the features and settings and experiment to better understand the how and what.
Yes, it’s been snowing in Toronto – and Saturday we packed up for lunch at Ravine Vineyards (one of our favourite places) in St. Davids near Niagara on the Lake.
