I started to take photos in 1991 with my first camera which was a Fujifilm point and shoot 135 Camera, after that I tried different type of Analogue Camera systems from 135 SLR to Medium Format. At 2000 I started to use many type of digital cameras.
For the first time I took FUJIFILM X-T1 in my hand I believed that it should be designed by someone who knows about photography and thinks about photographer, I switched from digital medium format to FUJIFILM X-T1 and now I’m so happy after one year of using that.
