So I bought the Fujifilm x20 for my trip!! So far I love it, for a point and shoot. It focuses fast, it has manual zoom, and the files aren't too shabby. Today was spent practicing packing for my trip and playing with the camera, basically.
Look at the color! These are all edited with VSCO for Fuji, but still, the color out of the camera is pretty great. Here's a comparison between unedited and edited... not much difference and it looks beautiful!
The autofocus really is great. It caught onto this little flower at 85mm zoom at the first try. And even when it gets it wrong, it's not frustrating because there is no wait time for refocusing. I'm impressed.
Perhaps because I learned to shoot on a P&S, handling this little baby feels natural. The landscape images don't have the best detail ever, but that's only when you zoom in really close on the image. It does a good job with color and exposure anyway. The settings are easy to navigate and change. All in all, I'm pretty happy with it!
What do you think? Do we think there is a quality drop from my regular images? The 1D Mark II isn't much better in terms of sensor and pixels anyway, so I feel like the biggest difference is the lower quality glass the Fuji is working with. But still. Considering. I'm impressed.
