Exactly one year ago, I reviewed the Rebecca Lily Pro Set II for Lightroom. I became interested in these presets because some of them were specifically designed for the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor and at the time, the Adobe software hadn’t yet added the Film Simulation Modes for Fuji RAF files. While completely different from Fuji X camera colour rendering, Rebecca’s set proved a very interesting alternative that gave a nice and delicate filmic look to digital images.

Welcome to our series of 100 interviews we will be holding with professional photographers who use mirrorless cameras for work! “Switching to a smaller and lighter system” has become somewhat of a buzz phrase as of late, but many working photographers take this philosophy seriously. From medical reasons such as resolving back and shoulder pain to the simple realisation that bigger does not mean better, photographers are turning to mirrorless systems now more than ever before.
This week’s interview is with Verity Milligan, a British landscape photographer who is best known for her beautiful series of images that depict the city of Birmingham (UK). While her preferred genre is landscape, she also engages in travel, wedding, portrait and commercial photography.
As followers of this blog may know, Mathieu and I spend every summer in Wales where my parents live. Whereas most years we travel straight from Turin to their house, the first stop on our journey back to our “home away from home” this time around was the vibrant city of Edinburgh. Waiting for us there were not only my parents but also two family friends from Canada who I’ve known ever since I was born. To my surprise, one of them had bought a Fujifilm X-E2 especially for the trip after discovering mirrorless cameras through this blog. Since I’d only ever tried the X-E2 once at Fujifilm Touch and Try session in Italy, we decided that it would be fun to switch cameras for the day: he would use our X-T1 and we would take his X-E2 out for a spin.
With perhaps the exception of street photography, the one genre where mirrorless cameras seem to be taking hold more than any other is wedding photography. You’ll know that the reasoning for this is fairly logical is you’ve ever shot a wedding yourself. Spending up to 14 hours on your feet until the wee hours of the morning chasing down the bride and groom and taking group photos, all the while searching for those perfect fleeting moments between guests–it can be wearing, especially if you are carrying around kilos-worth of gear. And if you consider that some wedding photographers work almost every weekend during the spring and summer months, it is no surprise that many are looking for lighter alternatives.
The Micro Four Thirds system has certainly reached its maturity in the last two years. The new Panasonic Lumix GH4 is the latest example of how advanced the system has become. I feel that this camera in particular is more important than any other MFT camera because it represents a great step not only in terms of stills but also video recording.
One memory card is as good as another, you say? Though on the outside they may look nearly identical, the performance and capacity of your memory card can vary, just as a $2000 MacBook can run circles around a $200 notebook computer. Memory cards are built with different capacities for the same reason cameras are built for different purposes–for the simple reason that photographers have varying needs. A sports or wildlife photographer, for instance, will certainly need a memory card that is both fast and capacious for rapid shooting sequences, whereas a landscape or street photographer may care less about these aspects. And let’s not forget that in recent years there is also video recording involved.
