Fujifilm XF1

My Fujifilm XF1 is my most loved camera ever. The XF1 is a high end compact camera. Its just small enough to get into my big jackets pockets, and just big enough to be a pain in my jeans pockets.

It looks fantastic and feels fantastic. Proper lil retro look to it.

It has enough options to keep me feeling like a proper photographer with aperture and iso settings, and enough ‘good’ presets that I rarely need them.

The only problem with it is the lens control errors that have marred it since I have owned it. Its been back to Fujifilm 5 or 6 times. But to their credit they have repaired it every time and this cameras well out of warranty.

I would certainly recommend the brand Fujifilm, but maybe not this camera.

That said, the day this camera finally does move on into digital heaven, you will find me burying its body under a tree. With a gravestone. Releasing a dove. Crying.

I really love this little camera.

      My first digital camera was a Canon Ixus 75i. That thing lasted years and was completely awesome! šŸ™‚

    Love the retro look! Would never guess it was digital! šŸ™‚ Olympus has a fully manual adjustment digital that is on my wish list. Digital menus, ugh!

    I think instead of burying its body you can up-cycle it … Why not to make a jewelery ? You may sell it with very good price šŸ™‚
