  • […] Dan Bailey’s first impressions of the X-E2 here: “Autofocus on the XE-2 is considerably faster, which dispels any notion that it’s not a […]

  • […] This month, Fujifilm announced the brand new XE-2 camera. If you’€ve been following along in recent weeks, then you know how much I’€ve been putting the XE-1 through the rigors, shooting landscapes, travel and even fast action with it. The XE-1 is a beautiful camera with a very usable and ergonomic design and killer image quality, largely because the Fuji XF lenses are so good. My dad even bought one and he’s one of those mature, discerning types.Fast forward- The XE-2 is even better. Fuji took all the big upgrades that went into the X100s and brought them over to the XE-2. New features include super fast Phase Detection Autofocus, (AF sensors placed right on the 16.3MP XTrans Sensor) a vastly improved frame rate on the electronic viewfinder, built in Wi-Fi and an improved Image Processor.  […]

    hi there, i,m thinking of buying the XE-2, in your opinion would this be ok for a beginner to start with, at the moment i have a G11 but want to upgrade, i want to take pics of my travels and family etc. thanks shaun

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Shaun, the XE-2 is a fantastic camera and if the price is doable for you, it would certainly be good for a beginner. The classic layout and different shooting modes will help you learn about the basic fundamentals of photography, and at the same time, give you extremely high resolution imagery. I’d say it’s a camera that you can definitely grow into.

  • […] I like not having to change lenses in those situations. I really do like the XE-1, (which has just been updated to the XE-2), and I love shooting the two cameras side by side, as I did during a recent cyclocross race. Lots […]

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
