Full disclosure, pretty much everything I purchase comes straight from Amazon. Literally, from 25lb bags of rice, coffee & filters, to scuba diving gear, dresses, etc I think you get the point. Anyways, the links below are all affiliate links. That means if you think the gear I use in real life would work well for yourself and you buy it using my link, I earn a little bit of change. Which, I’ll no doubt turn around and spend on more scuba diving. Please support the cause.
If you're just starting out, the price of this camera body is very off putting. Keep in mind, you get what you pay for. My first camera was a Canon Rebel T6 bundle package from Amazon. As most of you know, the majority of my photos are all ocean and travel based. After a year or so I was using my iPhone X on portrait mode more than my camera because it didn't require me to to use Snapseed to liven my photos. Classic case of "should've listened to your dad"; My dad swore by Fuji, he would say, "they just have the best color, no one can beat it". It's true and worth the investment. Note: There is a Facebook group, Fuji X USA Buy/Swap/Sell where you can find all sorts of items for sale a much lower cost.
