Fujifilm's X-Pro2

Melissa Breyer

Breyer says she’s been working with the same camera, the Fujifilm X-Pro1, for years. “You get to know the camera so well, it just becomes part of you,” she says.

Xyza Cruz Bacani

A Fujifilm ambassador, Bacani carries the X-Pro2 and, sometimes, the GFX 50S medium- format camera, “just to challenge myself to see if I can photograph without being seen.”

Michelle Groskopf

Groskopf says she’s using a Sony camera now after carrying Fujifilm’s X100S and X-T2.

Melanie Einzig

Einzig says she’s used Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus and Fuji cameras. “I’m enjoying the Fujifilm X100F with the fixed lens,” she says. “It’s good in low light and registers colors the way I see them.”

Joseph Michael Lopez

Lopez says he’s made 98 percent of his work on the Leica MP since it came out in 2003.

An Rong Xu

Xu says the Sony a7R II “is my camera of choice at the moment.” He’ll also use his phone, a Yashica T4, a Leica M4 or a Mamiya 7. “It just matters how I feel that day.”
