For the first few years of my photography career, I shot with Canon DSLRs. There was really nothing I could fault about the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Mark III; both produced wonderful images and were 100% reliable. In more recent years, however, I photographed a lot of weddings, and carrying around two or three DSLRs all day wasn’t my definition of fun. 

Concentrating on more personal projects during the past couple of years, shooting street photography and sometimes having to cover many miles in a day, meant that I needed to downsize my gear. I now own three Fujifilm mirrorless cameras: the Fujifilm X-E1, Fujifilm X-T2 and Fujifilm X-T3.
