I dithered over wich camera I would take on a motorcycle trip into the French Alps. My trusty Ricoh GRD IV was out of contention, because it’s lens is a bit wide for general purposes. The JPEG Submarine, albeit pocketable and supplied with extra features like a simple navigation program, was limited by it’s output.
As you can see, their footprint is nearly the same, though the X-T1 builds higher with it’s pseudo pentaprism hump. On the other hand, the 27 mm f/2.8 pancake lens I choose for it makes it ab bit flatter and more pocketable. Anyway, I decided a day before the start to take along the Fujifilm, and I don’t yet regret it.
Here are some more examples:
The Fujifilm X-T1 fits into the wallet pocket inside my leather riding jacket, giving it an unsightly hump. Oh well, the important thing is that it is always at hand. The camera is sealed against moisture and dust, though the lens isn’t. We’ll see how that goes.
