My next oldies compared to newbies article for Amateur Photographer involves lining up a decade old Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro against a Fuji X-T1, both top of the Fuji system camera ranges of their day and both centred around innovative and unusual imaging sensors.

Fuji have been facing problems getting X-T1 loan cameras back from journalists and I was pessimistic about receiving one in good time but a box from Fuji arrived yesterday. I have handled the camera previously although only briefly and I have to say it's much nicer in the 'flesh' than in photos, although I'm still not convinced by the styling.

But what the X-T1 does have is a very nice electronic viewfinder and exquisitely designed external controls that blend modern functionality with retro style and panache

Many thanks to forum member Splott for the offer of an S3 Pro for loan so I can research the comparison

More later!

    Must be good if the journalists are reluctant to give it back!

    If I was starting out fresh with a mirrorless camera and not already tied to an existing system I would give the X-T1 serious consideration. However, it does seem odd that the expandable ISO settings are only available for JPEG, not raw.

    It will be interesting to see if the X-Trans CMOS II Sensor compares to the SuperCCD SR sensor, in a similar way to the Old-n-New Olympus comparison.
