Fantasising

I like my Fujifilm X-T3 because of its size and the film simulations. I like my Nikon D810 because I can make 5:4 ratio photographs with it. If only I could get them together.

The Fujifilm GF-X cameras are almost the perfect solution. They have the great Fuji look and offer many aspect ratios, including 5:4. But they are bigger than the X-series cameras and, more importantly, I can’t afford one.

Oh, well. The X-T3’s square photos are kind of nice . . . .

    Make the most with what you’ve got – it’s fun dreaming, but what you’ve got is more than ample to make decent photographs.

      1. it is really little different to a 6×7 view when actually viewing a print. I’ve had both.

    1. There are many secondhand Fujis out there – at the end of the day it’s the lens that matters most – my advice would be buy the best lens you can afford and then match it up with a few years old camera body with a guarantee.
      I hate digital stuff for the fact that today’s £!!!!! HOW MUCH? is tomorrow’s also-ran. Buying a new digital camera is like buying a new car -you lose as soon as you drive it off the forecourt . .

      1. Very true. Even if I had the money to buy one of the digital medium format cameras I probably wouldn’t. There is the rapid loss of resale value, as you mention, and there a million things that could go wrong inside requiring an expensive replacement. If I were a professional photographer I’d have insurancevand not worry about it. But it’s too much of a risk for someone like me.
