Long Road Sixth Form College has one of the largest and longest-established A level Photography departments in the country – so who better for Fuji to approach when they wanted up-and-coming photographers to try out and evaluate their cameras?
Photography students were loaned cameras in the X compact SLR range to use for their coursework. In return, they wrote a short, honest review of each camera. The idea is to see what younger photographers want from a camera and how closely this Fuji range meets their needs.
Aurelia Coster, Photography student, comments: “As a student I want to be able to take impulse shots and carry the camera wherever I go. With the Fuji this is easy, as it is light enough to carry comfortably on its neck strap. Operation of the XE2 is great: the switch from one mode to another is seamless so adapting to different light or conditions is a quick and painless exercise.”
Martin Salmon, A level Photography teacher, says: “This has been a brilliant opportunity for our students to try out these high quality cameras, and demonstrates the high quality of work in the department. Fuji has also offered Photography students and College staff the opportunity to buy cameras at special rates, which will ensure that the quality of work continues to remain at an exceptional level.”
