Türkei – Stefan Schulze // FotografieStefan Schulze // Fotografie

Wenn man auf dem Wedding wohnt, denkt man ja oft, man hätte Istanbul schon gesehen, ohne jemals in der Türkei gewesen zu sein. Stimmt aber nicht… so ganz. Tatsächlich war keine Kumpir so gut wie die aus dem Çarik Kuruyemiş in der Seestraße (beste!), ein Punkt für Berlin. Und wenn ich schon Punkte verteile, gibt es direkt auch einen für Istanbul und den besten Platz der Stadt zu jeder Uhrzeit: die Galatabrücke. Manchmal kommen Delfine vorbei oder ein paar Jungs, die von der Brücke springen, bis die Polizei anrückt und sie verjagt. Für einen Blick auf das Display meiner Kamera war vor dem Weglaufen natürlich noch genug Zeit. Zweitbester Platz der Stadt: Galata Şirin Fırın, eine kleine Bäckerei um die Ecke von unserem Hotel, großartig, um den Kalorientank wieder aufzufüllen, plus noch ein bisschen Profiterole-Reserve obendrauf. Natürlich gibt es in Istanbul auch noch eine Menge Kirchen, Moscheen und Märkte, die einen Besuch Wert sind, aber draußen ist’s einfach schöner………

Review: The Fuji Instax SP-1 Printer | Ian MacDonald

In February I wrote an article about the Fuji Instax SHARE SP-1 Printer called “A photograph needs to be real:  The beauty of the Fuji Instax printer“. In that article I shared my thoughts about “growing up” in the era of digital photography and how, recently, I had come to realize the value of the printed photograph.  I discussed the impact an amazing printed photograph has on me, and also my desire to print more often. While thinking about some upcoming photography projects I was planning, and a photography trip I was about to take,  I realized how valuable the Fuji Instax SHARE SP-1 printer would be.  Thankfully it worked out that I could receive one before I left for my trip. I have to admit that I was like the little kid on Christmas day waiting for the courier to deliver the printer.  I will always be the guy who nerds out on new gear, but this time it had special meaning to me……..

Scotland with Fuji – On The Way To Skye — MiKSMedia Photography

The trouble with traveling to beautiful places is that once back, I have to go through, literally, thousands of pictures and pick only some of them.  Just recently I have been very lucky to go to Scotland again and travel to the Isle of Skye and Lewis with a few friends.  I will be forever grateful to Adam for taking time off work to drive us all from Glasgow to those beautiful places, so that I could feast my eyes and share with all of you what a beautiful land Scotland is.  It’ll be a very long series since, I am unable to chose only a shot or two from a given location, but when you see them you will understand what I mean.  We have had a very capricious weather during this trip. Rain and sun, heavy clouds and blue sky, changing every few minutes, making my choices for photos even more difficult, because each place looks different in different light, and I ended up taking numerous photos of the same thing, just differently lit. I am asking you all to just bear with me, though, because it is all going to be worth it. Especially when, thanks to my Fuji, I was able to use a better camera and wider lens than the one I have used during our first trip, and I am very happy with Fuji’s performance during this wet trip and numerous lens changes (that’s what you get when most people traveling with you are using Fuji and they all share their toys ;D). I am, once again, in awe of the beautiful land and its people, so very nice and friendly.  And, even though it was cold and wet and windy, during most of the trip, I would go back there right now, if only it was possible, and do it all over again :D …….

Small with lengthy ambitions – Fujifilm 2x teleconverter Review | Ben Cherry

I’ve had a pretty short period of time with the Fujifilm 2x teleconverter TC WR and with an increasing amount of time dedicated to the exciting Flight of the Swans project, I had get out with this teleconverter wherever possible. I’m going to cover things like image quality with both the XF50-140mm F2.8 WR OIS and the XF100-400mm WR OIS, as well as looking at autofocus speeds and comparisons against ’naked‘ lenses. Hopefully this will give you real world advice on how helpful this teleconverter will be for you. Nothing new here – It is wonderfully well built, just like its little brother, the 1.4x teleconverter TC WR. The build quality of Fujifilm products continues to increase, like the rest of my X-Series equipment, I know that this product will be able to take a beating out in the field. Took a few quick product shots, but I don’t do this anywhere near as good as Jonas Rask, so check out his beautiful review of this 2x teleconverter here. Hopefully the pictures give you an indication of the size difference between the two teleconverters………

A Practical Review of the Fuji XF 27mm | Joe Jongue

Let’s face it, a pancake lens is not something you would normally go out and buy as your first lens however if I could turn back time the XF 27mm f2.8 would have been one of the first lens I add to my kit. This won’t be your typical lens review with charts and numbers instead I’ll discuss the lens in practical everyday use, the Pros, and Cons along with sample photos. The 27mm falls in the same family as other pancakes such Canon’s 24mm & 40mm, Olympus 17mm and the Nikkor 10mm just to name a few. In the past pancake lenses haven’t been known for their image quality and are rather slow with apertures usually set between f2 and f2.8, they are like an acquired taste, you either like them or you hate them. Those that do like them do so for their size and portability so naturally when Fuji’s 27mm was released there wasn’t much love for this lens…….

Fujifilm X-Pro2 – Testbericht & Meinung | Qimago Photography

Gleich zu Anfang: Es gibt zahlreiche tolle Tests und Vorstellungen der X-Pro2 im Netz. Alleine von den 100 X-Photographers, welche die Kamera vor Ankündigung zu Testzwecken hatten, gibt es zahlreiche Posts. Vor allem in diesen könnt Ihr die Neuerungen nachlesen. Ich werde hier nicht jeden einzelnen Punkt hervorheben, welcher jetzt neu an dieser Kamera ist. Ihr werdet hier meine Meinung lesen, was mir wichtig ist, was ich für mich als gut bzw. problematisch festgestellt habe. Nicht mehr aber auch nicht weniger. Anfang 2012 war es soweit. Ich weiß noch genau wie begeistert ich war als ich das erste Mal die Fujifilm X-Pro1 in den Händen hielt. Eine digitale spiegellose Cam im Look einer Messsucherkamera mit der Möglichkeit das Objektiv zu wechseln. Der optische Sucher hatte mich schon bei der X100 aus dem Hause Fujifilm begeistert. Der links sitzende Sucher ist, egal ob optisch oder per elektronischem Sucher, am Ende heute noch der ausschlaggebende Punkt für mich, zu einer Kamera in diesem Design zurück zu greifen…….

Short test of Fujinon XF2X TC WR teleconverter | Michal Krause

I had unique opportunity to test new Fuji teleconverter XF2X TC WR one day before official announcement. Here is my short preview and few sample photos. Converter was a preproduction sample and was used with  X-Pro2 body and Fujinon XF50-140mm lens (here is my test of this lens with XF1.4X TC). New converter extends focal length by factor of 2 so XF50-140mm becomes a 100-280 mm (150-420 mm with crop factor) with constant aperture 5.6. It is slightly larger then XF1.4X, but still much more compact than DSLR converters. It doesn’t take much space in your bag – its diameter is 58 mm and length 32 mm (but almost 60 mm with caps) and it’s weight is 170 g. I have to say, that with X-Pro2 and XF50-140mm it is really compact and lite combo weighting around 1600 g……..

With the Optical View Finder – X70 | FUJIFILM X

X70 is a camera that pursued simplicity, but there is no reason for users not to customize it. We have prepared the optional accessories for X70 so that the camera would suit your style even more. Among the accessories is the external optical viewfinder „VF-X21“. „Why bother to attach an external finder for a camera with no finder?,“ you may wonder. If you actually try it, you will find that this accessory is indeed an interesting piece. Even if you own X100 series or X-Pro series cameras or even DSLRs, we are certain that you will find this finder interesting. The finder mechanism used on „VF-X21“ or X100 and X-Pro2 is „reverse Galilean“. As mentioned in „What does the finder see?“ story, this type of finder has the advantage of seeing things outside the frame. „VF-X21“ in particular covers up to angle of view of 21mm equivalent, so you will see things in a really wide angle of view…..

Why I loved the Fuji X-T1 | Richard Rivera

Can the proverbial fly-in-the-ointment lose a sale? By now many of us are familiar with the virtues of the Fujifilm X-T1, which was released back in January of 2014. It is an APS-C size sensor endowed with Fuji’s proprietary X-Trans CMOS II matrix. After hearing so much about it, I decided to try it for myself. I compared the Fuji X-T1 to other cameras I happened to have on-hand, such as the Sony (Alpha) NEX-7, the Olympus OM-D E-M1, and the Olympus OM-D E-M10, and will occasionally make reference to them. In my experience the Fuji X-T1 with the zoom XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 handled really well, primarily because the aperture ring is on virtually every Fuji lens and the shutter speed dial is on the top deck, which means that hunting through menus is minimized and adjusting exposure is easy…….

Reach out! – Fujifilm 2x tele converter TC WR mini-review | Jonas Rask

Now THIS is a real odd-ball. – A guy who is completely and almost exclusively into shooting small prime lenses on the narrow streets of Århus in Denmark, suddenly reviews a 2 x tele converter for use on big heavy long reach zoom-lenses! Usually when I get to test some form of Fujifilm gear, it’s usually because it fits my profile of shooting (I guess). But this time around it was a little different. A little while ago I had the immense honour and pleasure of shooting ALL the X-series stuff as packshots for use in the banners over at www.fujifilm-x.com (Go check it out, if you havn’t already). As part of this I was sent the Tele Converter XF 2X TC WR. I had a big trip to Iceland planned just 4 days after receiving it, so I asked if I could bring it along for some quality time along with the “Bigguns” the XF100-400mm and the XF50-140mm. The guys at Fujifilm Nordic must’ve raised an eyebrow or two (as did I upon expressing that thought!) – But they said go for it………
