Fascinated by electronic gadgets, I discovered digital photography in the late 90’s. The very first models used 3.5″ floppy disk as a storage medium with a capacity of 1.44 MB! My first real serious hands on experience I made with a Sony Cybershot DSC-F505 during a USA road trip. As storage capacity was expensive, 640×480 VGA resolution was the way to go back then… not even using the maximum resolution of the camera! I also proudly owned the very first Canon Digital IXUS (2.1 MP), which was a very beautiful and small pocket camera… Do you remember, when 16 MB rocked the world? Over the next years, I upgraded my gear through several generations of point and shoot cameras, but I slowly was getting annoyed by the limitations of this device type. In the mean time, digital cameras have become a serious solution for professionals. But instead of jumping on the “you want shoot professional, you need a DSLR” train, I was more attracted by the rangefinder form factor. In that perspecitve, Fujifilm really understands my personal requirements and their products are like a natural extension to my body.
