I’ve found a new use for my beloved and broken Fujifilm XF1 camera. It’s literally a paperweight. It has enough weight to hold down the pages of my sheet music book and traveler’s notebook, and the leather cover keeps it from sliding off the pages.
It’s a real shame that the XF1 is broken, but this model suffers from a design flaw that Fujifilm has never acknowledged and is pointless to fix since it will just break again. The size, quality, and design of the XF1 was brilliant, and the line carried on with the XQ1 and XQ2. I’m tempted to buy an XQ2, but my six-year-old Fujifilm X100T is still serving me well. So for now, I’ll just admire the design of the XF1 as it serves it’s new purpose and be thankful that it was the camera that got me into the Fujifilm world.
