Fujifilm XT2 – Review | Sven Schroeter

And now with the formalities out of the way, lets get our feet wet and see what the new kid on the block has up its sleeve. I imagine that most of you who have read our Fujifilm reviews are sick and tired of us preaching about the awesome image quality, colour, ISO performance, dynamic range, lenses, and durable build of the X series gear. So instead of focusing on the further incremental improvements in these departments, we will focus our attention on the new and exciting features of the XT2. But before we gloss over too much, just keep in mind, the X series has been killing it since the XPRO1 and this was reason enough for us to use the system both professionally and personally for the last four years. Fujifilm has made a name for itself in the professional photography market and their tools are only limited by your imagination…..

Zeiss Planar 45mm F2(test with X-Pro 2) | Capitalfaces

A few months back I procured the well regarded Zeiss Sonnar 90mm F2.8 (G fit). I was suitably impressed with this somewhat small marvel and the review is buried on this site somewhere! It was small, well made, EXTREMELY sharp – and ultimately convinced me that buying the Fujinon XF90mm may not actually be necessary. I’m not saying it was better (it likely wasn’t/isn’t) but seeing as that focal length is not really what I use anyway (I do mainly street stuff and use the 23mm nearly all of the time) I figured the £600 I saved by not getting it could be put to better use. So I went to Whitstable for a few days with my bird…had a great time. I have always been a fan of the Contax G1/2 – I worked in photo retail for many years, straight out of school, in fact, and this titanium tank still has a huge following today. One of the reasons people bought these beauties (and still do) was the lenses available. The most popular of which was the Planar 45. Years later, as bench tests became more advanced and sensors started to out perform film emulsion etc, this optic became something of a star, especially in the digital mirrorless world…..

I believe i can fly Fuji X-T2 and Motocross | Michael Schaake

We photographers often stay to long in our comfort zone. In my case this means photographing landscapes and wildlife. But leaving the comfort zone and shooting something we normally don’t often has very positive effects on our overall photographic capabilities. I went out to a motocross race the other day to get even more familiar with the new AF system the new Fuji X-T2 offers. After the dogs this was the second chance to test the new AF system and see how it performs. For motocross I choose to set the AF-tracking to option 4, suddenly appearing subjects…..

Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 R WR (Fujfilm) – Review / Test | Photozone

Over the recent months I received a couple of requests to review the Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 R WR. Honestly I was a little reluctant to put it on the priority list simply because there’s the Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R – a lens that is just marginally more expensive but obviously one stop faster. However, then I checked the (fairly high) sales rank over at Amazon … and I thought … well, who am I to argue …In terms of sheer paper specs, the lens doesn’t seem to be overly exciting. On Fujifilm cameras it behaves like a standard lens and it’s not even an overly fast one. However, there is something special about it – its size. While not being a pancake lens it is darn small and it combines nicely with other small Fujinon lenses such as the XF 18mm f/2, XF 27mm f/2.8 and there’s a XF 23mm f/2 coming later this year. Obviously Fujifilm is now also targeting street photography where it helps having unobtrusive lenses in order to keep a low profile……

Fujifilm X-E2S: What you need to know | Carey Rose

The Fujifilm X-E2S is essentially a Fujifilm X-E2 with firmware updates and some very minor tweaks. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad camera, or that people shouldn’t consider it. Over the course of doing a thorough review (one that focused on its use and its appeal to different users, given how well-known the camera’s performance is), I came away with some observations – some of which you’d miss if you were just skimming the review, or reading through the key specifications. So in case you missed it, let’s take a quick look back at some of our findings with the Fujifilm X-E2S…..

Kayaking with a Fujifilm X-T1 and XF100-400mm | Jon Vause

I am a keen kayaker with a passion for photography so with the estuary and wetlands near my home having prolific birdlife it has been a natural progression to combine both. Using a kayak gives you unique access to the areas you just can’t get to on foot or by boat so this means less (usually no) people, which results in more bird activity. But let’s face it an open kayak isn’t necessarily a camera friendly zone and a DSLR with a zoom lens fitted isn’t the most buoyant combination around so it was a bit daunting at first to take this out in my kayak but over the past couple of years I have developed a reasonably successful and safe technique…..

The 10 Main Differences Between the Fujifilm X-T2 and Sony A7 II | Mirrorlessons

A casual glance at the Fujifilm X-T2 and the Sony A7 II could lead you to believe that there isn’t much that sets these two high-end mirrorless cameras apart. In addition to having a weather-resistant SLR-like body and a large centrally-placed electronic viewfinder, both models incorporate a 24MP sensor with a 14-bit uncompressed RAW option and a hybrid autofocus system with contrast and phase detection points.However, if we dig a little deeper, we soon discover that they target fairly different markets, as evidenced by the X-T2’s advanced autofocus and video capabilities and the A7 II’s large sensor and in-body stabilisation……

Fuji Instax SP-2 | SaywellHQ

Today I received a copy of the Fuji Instax SP2 printer, I’m a big fan of the SP1 printer and use it at every wedding I shoot at. The SP1 has always been a good little thing, the quality has never been great, but pick the right picture with the right colours and you can get prints that you can happily hand out at a party or wedding.I’ve had to order this from a foreign land as the suppliers in the UK are quoting mid to late September for delivery from Fuji and then on into shops – so this is not a UK purchased printer, I doubt anything will change when it does get released over here, but thought I’d let you know…..

The Fujifilm X-T1 for Street Photography | Street Hunters

A few weeks ago our friends at Fujifilm Hellas sent us the Fujifilm X-T1 over for a review. I posted this on my personal facebook page and I got many reactions. The X-T1 was the Fujifilm flagship camera for nearly 3 years until the new X-Pro2 made its appearance. Now, in anticipation of the brand new XT-2 we decided that it would be a great time to review one of Fujifilm’s greatest modern success stories. Before we dive into one of the most exciting reviews that we have presented on Streethunters.net we would like to remind you of our previous camera reviews. In February of 2015 we reviewed the amazing Ricoh GR, a wonderful pocket sized APS-C camera that every Street Photographer should use at least once in their life. Following that, in April of 2015 we reviewed a DSLR and in particular the Canon EOS 6D for Street Photography, a full frame monster with amazing capabilities. Last but not least, in May of 2015 we reviewed the legendary Fujifilm X-Pro1 a camera that is still used by many Street Photographers, even if it is a 4 year old model and lacks many bells and whistles that more recent cameras have…….

Out of this World – Scotland with Fuji | Kasia Sokulska

It’s time for the next installment of my Scottish adventure. I’m sorry for the longish break, but life has a way of interfering. So, without further ado, let’s get back to the story.. Next, was the last morning we were going to enjoy on the Isle of Skye. As usual, I could not sleep past 6AM and was first to get up and managed to get some lovely shots of small things in the morning light. I didn’t have much time to play around though because we needed to catch the early ferry to Harris and Lewis, and we wanted to fit in a stop at another extraordinary place on Sky – Cuith-Raing (known otherwise as Quiraing). It is quite an amazing piece of landscape.  We took an easy hike to get a better view and it was worth every bit of effort for the views were quite simply spectacular… The landscape is, for the lack of better expression, out of this world. So different and so beautiful… Too bad, we did not have too much time to linger and had to hurry up to catch the ferry that carried us to our next adventure…
