Dabboo Ratnani said, “Being a celebrity and fashion photographer for over two decades, I am constantly looking to capture real moments that I can develop cinematically with DSLR and SLR’s. I am thrilled to be associated with Fujifilm, as I have always admired their mirrorless cameras that pack suave features such as great image quality, impeccable colours and a body that is so easy to handle.
