Throughout his career, Daniel has used many iconic cameras including Leica’s and Hasslblads, but he has settled down and now loves Fujifilm cameras.
It has been approximately 2 days, 17 hours, and 32 seconds since the last YouTuber uploaded an ‘I use system X for my photography’ video, so it is about time for another. In his latest video, photographer Daniel Milnor does something he said he would never do because people wouldn’t stop asking him; and that’s talking about his gear. Why we think it is so important to find out what others are using is baffling, but to appease his subscribers, he lists the six reasons why he uses Fujifilm cameras. Join us after the break for the video.
People’s fixation on what other people use when it comes to cameras is another pandemic that we have to deal with. What’s the deal with judging how good a photographer is or isn’t based on the gear they choose to use? Anyway, I digress. We all know about Fujifilm and just how fantastic their cameras are now; in fact, they are so good that many pros have jumped into bed with Fujifilm for good reasons. Over on Advancing Your Photography, Daniel Milnor shares his reasons.
After using many cameras throughout his career including many Leica’s, a Hasselblad 500cm that he paid $65 for that included the camera, a back and lens, a Pentax 645, tons of Nikon bodies, plenty of Canon cameras and even large format cameras, Daniel settled on the Fujifilm X-T2.
Without getting into too many details (we don’t spoil the video for you), Daniel explains why the Fujifilm system is perfect for him. Thanks to the systems affordability, ease of use, and ergonomics, which he loves because the dials and physical controls remind him of the older vintage cameras that he has used, the X-T2 does the job he needs to do easily.
