Fuji X-Pro1

My Black’n’White settings for FujiFilm Cameras | Daniel Eliasson

The FujiFilm X100s is a great camera for street photography. Small enough to always carry with you, but competent enough to produce great black’n’white photos straight out of the camera. The predefined BnW film simulations in the camera are a bit dull. The photos will be very tame with low contrast. I really like deep black’n’white photos. The darkest parts should be black and the white should be crisp but not blown out. To achieve this I usually modify the standard settings a bit. Note that if you shoot in RAW, the Monochrome settings will be lost. Set the camera to shoot JPEG or both RAW + JPEG to use the photos straight out of the camera……..

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 for Street Photography | Spyros Papaspyropoulos

It is time for another camera review for Street Photography! This will be the 3rd camera review we have done so far. In the past we have written a review about the wonderful Ricoh GR for Street Photography and the powerful Canon 6D for Street Photography. Both those reviews are highly recommended because they are from a Street Photographer’s perspective. Today, we will review a camera that was talked about by many when it first hit the market. Some praised it for what it had to offer, others gave it a serious beating because of its really bad AF performance. There are numerous reviews about it all over the web, and countless YouTube videos and tutorials on how to get best results from its focusing system. Despite any quirks this camera may have it is still a wonderful work of engineering that produces some of the most amazing files one could hope for. Today we review the Fujifilm X-Pro1. As with the previous reviews we wrote, this review is going to be from a Street Photographer’s perspective. It is a completely personal point of view. I am not a camera expert – anything I know about cameras is from personal experience, as I am not a professional camera guru. So, what you will read below is purely my personal opinion about the Fujifilm X-Pro1 for Street Photography and nothing more………

First Impressions: Fujifilm 16mm f1.4 (X Mount) | Chris Gampat

Two years ago in a meeting with Fujifilm, I asked the Marketing Director for Fujifilm USA if anything like  24mm focal length at f1.4 would be coming our way. She very clearly stated “No.” Lo and behold though, Fujifilm announced the 16mm f1.4 lens earlier on and we foundnd it at our doorsteps. This is the company’s first weather sealed prime lens and with the 1.5x crop factor comes out to 24mm f2.1 when translating it into full frame depth of field and equivalency. Like their other wide angle primes, Fujifilm gave this lens a snap back manual focus ring to make it more appealing to street photographers and candid shooters. We’ve had the chance to play with the new lens for a few days now, and so far it’s shaping up to be one of our favorites…….

Paris In The Rain | Bryan Jones

This is the first time I’ve been back to Paris since 2008.  That trip I managed to squeeze in a visit in 12hrs.  This time I had a little more time in-between work, meetings and capturing data from a really cool microscope made by LLTech. 3 days in Paris really is not enough time, particularly when you only really have one day to do things that are not work, but its better than no days. Unfortunately, it rained pretty much the entire time I was in Paris, or at least in those hours I was able to get outside, but that did not stop me from trying to do photography.  The evening I booked it over to the Eiffel Tower, most of the time the top was shrouded in clouds.  I was rewarded with some persistence out at the Eiffel Tower when the clouds broke and the sun shone through during sunset and I was able to get the introductory image at the top……..

Review – Fujinon XF16mm F1.4 R WR lens | Jonas Jacobsson

Fujfilm Nordic sent me this lens and I have had it with me and on my X-T1 for the past week and a half more or less. Almost glued to the camera. I was so eager to try this new weather resistant wide-angle that I actually couldn’t wait for the delivery guy so I went and picked it myself at the delivery firm. I’m a huge fan of the XF 14 mm f/2.8 (and wide-angle in general) and when the news of this new lens got out I was obviously very curious to see how it could perform, how it felt and if it’s something that should have a place in your bag. The new Fujinon XF16mm F1.4 R WR lens is the latest addition to the X-series of lenses. It continues to build on the trend of fast primes that has made Fujifilm very relevant on the market and very well spoken of. Complementing the 23 mm, 35 mm and 56 mm this new 16 mm (24 mm equivalent in full frame) comes with a bright maximum aperture of f/1.4, a clutch mechanism with distance scale for manual focus (like the on the 14 mm and 23 mm) and weather resistance to go along nicely with the Fujifilm X-T1 camera……..

Review – XF 16mm F1.4 R WR | Sven Schroeter

It has been a while since we last reviewed a Fujifilm lens (the 56mm APD over the christmas break was the last, unless I am mistaken). Our standard approach to a review has always been to grab the gear and head straight out the door to see what we can come up with. It is always tough when you are on the clock and only have a weekend to gather some sample material, hoping to come across anything which best illustrates some of the kits strengths and weaknesses. Especially when you are tasked to thrash a wide angle. The 16mm F1.4 lens works out to be a 24mm (35mm equivalent) focal length once you take the current X series APSC sensor crop factor (x1.5) into account. Although this is not a super wide angle lens, it is still wide enough to envelope a small city. We have always struggled with wide angle framing, it just does not come naturally to us. When we see the world, we are a lot more focused and at ease with a telephoto lens. Although we own the 14mm F2.8 and have made some lovely images with it, our very intimate and personal approach to framing does not frequently benefit from such a dramatic field of view……

The New Fuji 90mm f 2 – A Hands On Review | Bill Fortney

It’s approximately 4.5 inches long, excluding the hood. It takes 62mm filters  (this is important – more on that later!). It has the heft of a slightly heavier 56mm f 1.2. It’s supplied with a metal bayonet hood like the 60mm Macro. F stop range is f 2 to f 16. Minimum focus distance is less than 4 feet (more on that later). The focus ring is exceptionally smooth and firm. The aperture ring has good solid 1/3 stops detests like the 50-140. It balances well with the X-T1 with or without the battery holder. It is one of the most solid feeling Fuji lenses yet!!!……

Fujifilm XF 56mm f1.2 R Lens Review And Sample Photos | Alik Griffin

What I love About This Lens

This lens is really fantastic. The images it produces are made with magic. Sharpness is fantastic corner to corner with no optical flaws like chromatic aberrations or color shifts. It’s great for street photography where you want some distance, or it’s just great for travel and landscape. If you’re a prime lens shooter, this lens is a must have and was the first Fujinon prime I purchased when I made the switch to Fujifilm. Zero regrets.

Few Things I Don’t Love

The lens is pretty heavy compared to other Fuji lenses. Combine it with a Fuji X-T1 you have a hefty little camera that’s a little front heavy. The 56mm lens is hard to stabilize and will require always shooting at a bit faster of a shutter. I have trouble getting tack sharp images at 1/60 shutter because of motion blur. If you’re on a tripod or shoot with strobes this won’t be a problem. Like mentioned earlier the lens is completely fly-by-wire. You don’t get that same sense of control when using manual focus like you would with a Leica or a manual Zeiss. That’s just the way Fujifilm is designing their lenses so we can’t really complain. I do wish the aperture clicks were a little tighter as I’m always changing the aperture by accident when my hand hits it wrong or when the camera hangs from my neck strap. I think it’s something Fujifilm could work on…..

Fuji 16mm 1.4 R WR | Chris Harrison

A quick drive down to what is the biggest Japanese car festival in Europe, it was a beautiful sunny day so I employed the Electronic Shutter with the 16mm for the static shot, but obviously, being me, I had to try it with a bit of panning… I’m pleased to say weird Electronic Shuter distortion was much easier to control with the wider focal length, although with the stance of many cars in attendance it wasn’t always easy to tell…

The X100T and Marrakesh | STOCKOGRAFIE

Just a few days ago my wife and I got back from an incredible trip from Marrakesh. This city is so amazing, so very different to our city´s we have in Germany. The Medina, where our Riad was situated to the north of this, is absolutely crazy. The narrow streets are filled with people, motorcycles and bicycles. Before we left to this awesome place I was in a real dilemma. What of my gear should I take with me? Just the X100T, some spare batteries and some SD cards? Maybe the full lot? The Olympus E-M1 with the 12-40 as well? It took a lot of thinking and speaking to other fellow visitors such as Marc Wiegelmann to come to the conclusion that the best thing was to just take the X100T, my newly acquired Lensmate, some spare batteries and some SD cards. This decision was the best I could have made. I felt so relieved not having to think which lens to put on or even which camera to take. The other thing is that photographing in Marrakesh is not of the easy sort. Most of the locals don´t want to be photographed and that makes pure street photography very difficult. A small unobtrusive camera like the X100T helps to get the one or the other shot without being noticed. I must admit that the X100T did such a marvelous job in Marrakesh that I am honestly thinking of just using this camera for everything. I have done this once before, photographed with the X100 for over one year and had nothing else and felt happy. The X100T is so much better than the original X100 that it would be an easy one. But that is a different topic. Back to Marrakesh with the X100T slung around my shoulder…….
