My Long-Term Review of the Fujifilm X-T5

I picked up a Fujifilm X-T5 last December shortly after it was released. Originally, I purchased it as a backup camera to be used primarily for concert and street photography. After a short time, however, I fell in love with the camera and began to use it as my go-to choice for most of my portrait work. But does it hold up for heavy professional work?

In my latest YouTube video, I detail how the Fujifilm X-T5 has held up after a year of heavy use. I have used the camera for portrait shoots in my studio and on location, team headshot sessions, personal branding sessions, sports, nature, family photos, and more, as I created images for clients and content for my YouTube channel. I address one of the biggest complaints I have heard others voice regarding the X-T5, its build quality and robustness. I also talk about autofocus, which has been greatly improved over the previous X-T line of cameras, although there are still some caveats to consider. As with any camera, image quality is a front-and-center topic, and in the video, I show a lot of the images I was able to capture using the X-T5 and talk about the pros and cons of using an APS-C sized sensor that is 40 megapixels. 

Overall, I have been very happy with the X-T5 for the kind of work I do, which is primarily portraiture and headshots. I hope you enjoy the video!
