Years ago I made a site for the Canon G9 (Lifespy with a G9) and put up tips on how to set it up for street photography, studio use etc and pushed the bounds of a compact camera into the areas of a professional photojournalism.

Not that I was claiming the camera to be super excellent,  but more it just made it in on things like image quality, and then only if you were careful.
I was exploring early compact-mobile journalism (MoJo) by taking out the SD memory card from the G9 and then slotting it into my mobile phone to send the images, audio or video.

X-E1 Files

This time around I am looking at the Fuji X-E1, but this time the quality is there, in fact the quality is blowing away most of the DSLR competition; impressive for such a compact camera and Fujifilm are developing this into more of a camera system with a range of primes and zoom lenses as well as other accessories.

Although the X-E1 is a mirrorless system, I view it much more as a rangefinder camera, and capable of working at the professional end of documentary and reportage photography

Just so you know, I am not sponsored or paid in any way to write-up what I have found on here about the X-E1.  Some of the links on this site are affiliate links and I will earn a commission if you buy through those links (at no extra cost to you). These are all things that I have experience with that I am recommending because they are helpful and are companies that I trust, not because of the commissions that I may earn from you using these products.  Please do not spend money unless you feel it’s for something you really need and will help you.

I accept advertisers who have a photo related product, website, or seminar. Basically as long as it is photo related. I can offer 300X300 ad sizes in the right sidebar and have  available space at the moment! The prices range from £30 to £70 per month depending on placement and if you would like text link mentions as well.
This is a great value for this amount of targeted traffic and my readers are passionate about photography and love to buy gear! Email Me if you are interested in advertising.
