Time flies with this camera, it's been three years since I purchased my brand new Fuji X Pro-2.
The purpose of owning this camera is for me to take it anywhere I go outside my studio. This camera is always with me; I have photographed the streets of New York City, forests, mountains, and rivers.
When I was in the market for a digital camera I wasn’t too concerned about the quality of photographs it would shoot because these days almost any digital camera can do a high quality job. Most importantly, I wanted to have the same excitement as when I got my first film Nikon mechanical SLR camera. X Pro-2 did the trick because of its classic-camera-feel, mechanical and beautiful design, lightness, and simple controls; all of these characteristics spark a sense of nostalgia for my early days in photography.
I appreciate technology and understand how people get excited about buying a new digital camera every few years. But this camera ages well just like a pair of jeans and I’m enjoying it more and more. For me, the X Pro-2 is still doing the trick and I know that I’ll continue to use this camera for a long, long time.
