What to Expect From the X-Series in 2016 | Rob Zeigler

As the final days of 2015 come to a close it’s only fitting to look ahead and see what 2016 will bring to the Fuji X-Series. New cameras and new lenses are just on the horizon, but what else might we expect from Fuji, and what other ways might we get some added incentive to being X-Series users? Let’s take a closer look at what we can expect in 2016 and share a bit of speculation about what might be just around the bend. WHAT WE KNOW: X-PRO2. The cat is pretty much out of the bag on this one. It’s no secret that Fuji would eventually update their flagship rangefinder style interchangeable lens camera, but now all signs strongly point to a mid-January 2016 reveal. The strongest evidence for this was actually a slip by Magnum Photos in mid-November……

The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR Lens | Derek Clark

What is the point of the 35mm f2? We already have the 35mm f1.4, one of the three original XF lenses that were released alongside the X-Pro1. Not only that, the 1.4 version is one of the best 50mm equivalent lenses produced. Ever! It’s beautifully smooth but super sharp picture quality is truly stunning and even after the long list of first class lenses released over the last few years, the 35mm f1.4 is still one of my favourite Fuji lenses. So what about the new 35mm f2 with it’s tapered front end? Well it’s not quite as good looking or bright as it’s older brother, but this scrawny lad is quicker & less shifty. Lenses that taper in at the front end always look a little strange to me and I actually think this one looks better in silver (more like an old Leica lens). Don’t get me wrong, it’s a cool lens and feels a lot smaller than the f1.4 version. Where that tapper comes in handy is with the optical viewfinder of the X-Pr1 (and hopefully it’s successor)…..

Winnie & Elvin – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam |
Caveira Photography

What a way to finish up 2015. Winnie and Elvin sure know how to celebrate their marriage, with not 1, but 3 weddings across 3 different countries. We had the honour of shooting their wedding in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where the always lovely Winnie grew up. The blending of east and west, and tradition with modern opulence were perfect, with an emphasis on family and respect for Vietnamese culture permeating throughout the day. Winnie & Elvin, we feel privileged for the experience, and especially enjoyed the numerous local cuisines you lavished upon us while we were in HCMC…….

India with the X100T and X-Pro1 | Paul Perton

India is incredible – just as it says on the box. It’s been on my to-do list for years, but it was only recently that I finally set foot in this land of enchantment. Even if you travel regularly, you’ll understand that India isn’t somewhere to simply head for with a suitcase and a camera. In fact, it’s hard to imagine any kind of getting ready can prepare you for India’s streets, people, hubbub and reality. I’ve lived in Africa for more than four decades, so I’m fairly used to the proximity of people, poverty and a basic rural existence, yet India still caught me out. It’s almost overwhelming. A word of advice; travel light. It’s unremittingly hot, humid and busy. Suitcases full of formal clothes and camera bags laden with DSLRs are not the solution and you won’t get the chance to don the suit you brought along anyway……..

Fujinon XF56mm f1.2 and XF16-55mm f2.8 Bokeh Comparison |
Dean Johnston

Following along from yesterday’s post, here are four photographs, in two sets of two. Each set has one photo with the 56mm f1.2 and one with the XF 15-55mm f2.8, in that order. All are wide open, and the XF16-55mm is at 55mm. Not overly rigorous in execution, but it does give you an idea of what to expect with a headshot and a background around 90 – 100 cm away. It’s the kind of thing I would be interested in, so hopefully some will find it useful……..

Fremdgehen – Das Canon FD 1:3.5/135mm S.C. |
Marco Kolbas

Für einen ersten Versuch in diese Richtung, habe ich mich für eine inzwischen sehr preiswerte, jedoch qualitativ hervorragende Objektiv-Familie entschieden. Die FD-Objektive von Canon. Durch und durch manuell und komplett mechanisch wurden sie von den aktuelleren und moderneren EF-Objektiven an Canon Kameras komplett abgelöst. Auch wenn es sich hier großteils um absolut herausragende Linsen handelt, führte das doch zu einem ziemlichen Preisverfall. Das Canon FD 1:3.5/135mm S.C. bekam ich im gut sortierten Vintage Camera Shop des Leicashops in Wien für gerade mal € 49,-. Inkl. Händlergarantie. Bei dem Preis kann man nicht viel falsch machen…….

My personal 2015 | Stockografie

Wow this year past by fast. I can still remember January of this year awaiting the next spring to arrive and especially the month of May. My wife and I had booked a one week visit to Marrakesh. I was so much looking forward to that. Befor I realized it, it was May and we were heading off to Morocco. After that the year became the most tough one I have ever had. Not photography wise but personally. I had some really heavy hick ups to do with my day to day job. Man that was hard. My wife helped me over the hard times and of course going out and photographing just the odd things helped as well. Anyway, this small post is to give you an overview of what I think are my best photographs which I took in 2015. Interestingly enough most of them have been taken with the Fujifilm X100T. At the end of this post I will give you the chance to vote which shot you think is the best one. So do note hesitate to vote your favorite one……..

Sony A900 vs. Fuji X-T1, a Surprising Conclusion |
The Online Photographer

Apropos Ctein’s post above, I want to tell you my conclusions of trying the 8-year-old (Sept. 2008) Sony A900 (24 MP, full frame) and Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 Art against the current (Jan. 2014) Fuji X-T1 (16 MP, APS-C reduced frame) and Fuji XF 23mm (35mm angle of view equivalent) ƒ/1.4. Why just the conclusions? Because the proof is tedious, and…well, isn’t proof. I’ll give examples of what I mean by that below. What I did was to wander around inside and out and make about 40 matching shots with both cameras. I matched ISOs, apertures, and focus points, and let the cameras choose their shutter speeds. I then opened a number of the matching shots in Photoshop so that I could toggle back and forth between the two images and examine them at either 100% or size-matched. (The latter put the Sony images at about 85%.)……

Caffeine Priority: Widest Fujinon lens meets latest
Fujifilm body: XT-10 + XF 10-24mm f/4 OIS | Dave Pardue

The Fujinon 10-24mm f/4 OIS is Fuji’s widest XF lens, zoom or prime, by a fairly good margin. At 15-36mm eq. range it bests the next widest, the 14mm f/2.8 (21mm eq.) lens by a full 5mm eq. Wide angle zooms are getting ever better, and this year two of them garnered honors in our Lens of the Year awards in the zoom lens category (the Canon 11-24mm f/4 L and the Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 Pro). We’ve already put the Fuji X-T10 solidly through its testing paces, and it’s now earned a coveted Camera of the Year accolade of its own, so we felt it deserved a sort of victory lap… (actually, I just wanted to shoot with it some more, but that’s just between you and me). So, since it had yet to meet the highly acclaimed Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 OIS in our lab, that seemed the right call for said victory lap…..

The History of FUJINON Lenses | Fujifilm Innovation Gateway

In 1956, Fujifilm developed the first computer in Japan, which was able to process the mass calculations required for lens designing. This breakthrough development enabled Fujifilm to begin producing its world-renowned range of high-precision and superb quality FUJINON lenses. Lens designing is a culmination of numerical calculation. This is an undeniable fact. The movements of each light ray that goes through each lens surface are calculated. Higher accuracy of the calculation results in more accurate lens design. The basic idea is that lens quality improves with more accurate calculation. This is why we see the evolution of computer technology behind the advancements in lens design……….
