Fujifilm X-A10 and Canon

We’ve been wanting to get our hands on one of the Fuji X series mirrorless cameras for some time now. We enjoy our Fuji S9900W bridge camera very much – we use it almost exclusively as our studio camera.

We have so many classic film lenses in our collection that we never get a chance to use them. The first adapter we decided on was the Canon FD to Fujifilm X mount.

We choose the Fujifilm X-A10 body. It’s simple (inexpensive) and has the APS-C CMOS sensor and since we’ll be shooting with an adapter with manual focus lenses, we’ll shoot in aperture priority mode anyway. No need for all the other bells and whistles.

The Fuji X-A10 has 6 film simulation modes – PROVIA, Velvia, ASTIA, Classic Chrome, monochrome and sepia. My only wish was that it had ACROS.

The adapter we choose is the Fotodiox Pro (B&H $59.50 free S&H). It has a removable tripod mount which we like. Well built and it feels solid – mounts easily and securely.

This Canon Macro Lens FD 50mm is one of our favorite lenses for macro work. Below are a few sample shots.

16.3MP, APS-C CMOS sensor and under $200 lightly used. Great way to experience Fujifilm X Series cameras.
