Fujifilm X-T2 + 90mm f/2 | Matthew Hart

I read in the week that some people do not trust the reviews by the Fujifilm Ambassadors. I started to question my own thoughts. I decided however that I have always given an open and honest view of the Fujifilm X series. I am not one for long reviews anyway so most of my thoughts and feelings about the X Series are from hands on demonstrations and talking to people out and about on the streets on workshop days and events. I have also never been the pessimistic type and always see the good in all the gear I use and only use very limited functions on the camera so it’s not easy for me to start pulling something apart I am passionate about. I was asked by Fujifilm UK to be an Ambassador because of my work and because I had already adopted the Fuji X Series in to my workflow and was enjoying the refreshing change from DSLR to mirrorless. So I was already a fan you could say, but if you know me you will know I am quite blunt and honest about most things and if I did not like the X Series I would have moved to a different brand by now……

Fuji X – Zwei Seiten einer Medaille | Peter Poete

In meinen ersten Eindrücken zur X-T2 muss ich mich irgendwie etwas undeutlich ausgedrückt haben. Nicht diese Kamera, sondern die X-Pro2 ist der eigentliche Grund für meinen endgültigen kompletten Wechsel zu nur diesem einen System. OK, das ein oder andere Objektiv vielleicht auch noch. Die so betitelte “endgültige Entscheidung” bezog sich nur noch auf das Tüpfelchen auf dem i, nämlich das Vorhandensein einer zweiten, etwas DSLR-artiger ausgelegten Kamera, also der X-T2. Ich weiß, das klingt etwas seltsam, ist doch diese neue Kamera aktuell wahrscheinlich die kompletteste und perfekteste Spiegellose auf dem Markt. Die Konkurrenz hat entweder dann doch auf einen etwas zu kleinen Sensor für manche Bedürfnisse gesetzt (das war für mich letztlich der Grund) oder hat vielleicht sogar größere Sensoren im Angebot, weiß jedoch nicht wirklich, wie man Kameras – von Objektiven mal ganz zu schweigen – für Fotografen baut. Und dann gibt es noch die, die es mal wussten, jetzt aber lieber Sammlerobjekte oder Spezialeditionen ihrer Kameras mit von Werk aus abgeschrammeltem Lack für reiche Menschen auf der ganzen Welt bauen… traurig genug…..

Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Hands-on Review | DigitalRev

This lens is also moisture and dust resistant, which makes it a great pair with the XT-2 or X-Pro 2 – not every XF prime is weather resistant, so this is an important point for photographers who know they’ll be exploring outdoors. I put the 16mm through a lot of punishment while testing this lens, particularly in heavy rain. Both the lens and X-Pro 2 are still working smoothly, and I didn’t experience any issues at all. It’s worth noting that the lens doesn’t offer optical stablisation however, which would have made it an absolute low light beast with the fast aperture. One other aspect which was a pleasant surprise is how closely the lens can focus, boasting a minimum focusing distance of 15cm. This was remarkably useful when I was travelling, since I could use it when looking for unique angles for food, landscapes, and other snaps…..

There is Never a Perfect Time | Eric Kim

There is never a perfect time for you to take action. There is never a perfect time for you to workout, to photograph, to spend time with your family, to write a blog post, or to read. I feel once we acknowledge this, we would get a lot more meaningful work done in our lives. I’m guilty of this myself— I always try to “optimize” my life to do what is the most “efficient.” I dream of going to bed at 9pm, and waking up at 4:30am to workout. I dream of having the perfect writing day— going to my favorite hipster cafe, having my favorite single-origin espresso, and listening to my favorite music, while writing like a genius. But in reality— there is never an ideal time for anything (if you talk to people who have had children, they would agree)…..

Further Fuji Thoughts | The Lightweight Photographer

At the weekend I managed to take the Fuji XT1 out for a full day’s photography. In short, I loved using it but there was a nagging concern throughout that my images were being affected by the possible water colour effect. Am I right to be worried or am I imagining problems where there aren’t any? Here’s an update following the day: Initially I purchased two lenses, a 10-24mm and 18-135mm. The 18-135mm was always going to be a bit of a compromise in terms of image quality but I reasoned that the trade-off between optical performance and the convenience of using one lens was acceptable. In the end, a lot of the images I found unacceptable were shot with this lens so it went back……

Fuji 27mm F2.8 – The best lens for travel photography: pretty, tiny, and SHARP! | Monica Lent

Croatia, land of dragons and Rakija, was the site of my most recent European excursion – this time, with a new accessory: Fujifilm’s 27mm f2.8 lens. It stayed glued to my camera maybe 90% of the time, and gave me most of my favorite shots from the whole trip. I took over a hundred photos a day with it! Here’s why I think it’s the best lens I’ve used for travel. Looking for a technical review? This isn’t it – but here are some helpful ones…..

5 Reasons To Still Consider the X-Pro2 Over the X-T2 | Anthony Thurston

Ok, so the X-T2 is now available and now every Fujifilm photographer who doesn’t already own an X-T2 or X-Pro2 finds themselves in a bit of a dilemma, do you go for the X-T2 or the X-Pro2. On the surface it would seem like an easy decision, the X-T2 has virtually everything that the X-Pro2 has and more, including 4K video, and all while being the cheaper of the two cameras. So clearly, the X-T2 is the better choice, right? Well, as with many things in photography, that is not the whole story, so today we wanted to focus on a few of the reasons to still consider an X-Pro2 now that the X-T2 is available. Though with two cameras as evenly matched in most ways as these cameras are, we fully admit that the list below to be pretty subjective and you may disagree on one point or another. But lets get into it….

First impressions of the Fuji X-T2 | Chuq Von Rospach

I took the X-T2 out for its first photos yesterday to a favorite spot for this kind of testing: the sewage settling ponds on Radio Road in Redwood Shores. This is a great place for this kind of work because I can guarantee both close and distant birds, birds in flight, airplanes on landing pattern to SFO, and typically, clear skies with some humidity and haze. I went in the middle of the day, or course sticking the camera with harsh shadows and glare to deal with, because I assume if a camera can do decent work in poor light, it’ll kick tail with great light. These are all screen captures from my Lightroom session as I imported and evaluated them. I’ve done nothing to the images; these are raw images straight out of the camera. The camera was overall in factory default state, using ISO 1600, Aperture mode, fixed aperture (primarily F8) and automatic white balance. I had exposure compensation set to 0 and didn’t touch it or any other in-camera adjustments during the shoot, so these images are as the camera created them with as few tweaks as I could manage, and no sharpening or lightroom adjustments. The camera was hand-held with image stabilization on……

Fujifilm’s portrait primes. A comparison | Victor Hamke

Hi guys. My name is Victor and together with Ronja I’m part of Muse & Mirror, a wedding photography duo. I’m also a Fujifilm X-Photographer for those who care. I’d like to start with saying what this blog post is about:

  •  General thoughts about focal lengths for portraiture
  •  Fujis primes, their real life efficiency and my hands-on experience with them

I won’t bore you with charts and stuff as it doesn’t matter to myself and you can read those reviews elsewhere. I decided to write this article for two reasons. The first one is that I coincidentally have all of Fujis „portrait“ primes at home at the moment. The second reason is that I’ve read tons of stuff about all those focal lengths before buying but never saw them in such a broad comparison, so I thought that this could be helpful for any of you that are a little bit lost on which one to choose. For those of you who don’t know me: I use Fuji for all my work, but I have two dominant sections which are wedding photography (+ portraits) and Fine Art Composings. So I think my review suits people photographers the best – at least this is what I will focus on……
