Fujifilm X-Series cameras are far superior to many camera lines. Regardless of the model you choose, you're getting extremely good quality. In this video, I discuss my decision on whether to choose the Fujifilm X-T3 or the older, but very capable Fujifilm X-T1.
Along with the choice of these two cameras, I also take into consideration I already own a Canon EOS RP full frame camera that I won't be getting rid of anytime soon, due to the great price point I picked it up at, and the overall quality of the full frame RP vs the Fuji APS-C sensors.
To be honest, you cannot go wrong with either of these camera purchases, but factors other than tech specs need to be taken into consideration, especially when pairing the camera with another system. But I had to choose only one of these, and send the new X-T3 back during my return window, or sell the used X-T1 on Ebay.
Give the video a view, and let me know your thoughts, and if you plan to purchase, or already own one of these excellent cameras.
One thing that makes the Ricoh GR Series cameras so special is the continued updating of firmware. Whether it's the Ricoh GR II, III, or IIIx, Ricoh Imaging continues to offer new features, keeping the cameras up to date and on pace with competitors. The latest version as of October 2021 is 1.5, but this process will work with future updates as well.
In this video, I give a simple, yet brief description on how to download, install and update the latest firmware from Ricoh for the Ricoh GR III. The same description applies for the new Ricoh GR IIIx updates as well. Along with some interesting JPEG/RAW editing updates, as well as a 4:3 and 16:9 in-camera crop feature, the 1.5 firmware allows for Eye-detection (an upgrade from the previous Face-detection only feature). While the previous version usually nailed focus on most portraits I've shot with the GR III, the eye-detection is even better. I will have future videos featuring these new upgrades soon.
