Fuji X-Pro1

A Modern Classic – Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens | Mirrorless Minutes

Being retired I have a lot of time to think about silly things. I have often thought if I was only allowed to have one lens on my Fuji X-T1 which one would I choose. The three lenses that immediately came to mind were the XF 23mm f/1.4 R, the XF 35mm f/1.4 R and the XF 56mm f/1.2 R.  Each one of these lenses are splendid examples of the lens making art and Fuji has been making outstanding lenses for a very long time. At first I thought my choice would be the 35mm focal length which equates to approximately 50mm on an APS-C sensor camera.  It’s a reasonable focal length and to most people this represents the normal field of view for human eyesight. Then I started thinking about how much I love my Fuji X100 fixed lens camera which is equipped with a 23mm f/2.0 lens that gives the field of view of a 35mm lens on an APS-C sensor camera (actually to be perfectly honest if I was only allowed to have one camera any one of the X100/X100S/X100T series of cameras would be it). So that led me to the conclusion that if I was only allowed one lens the 23mm would be it……..

Does Fuji Cheat with its Sensors? | Nasim Mansurov

When testing cameras, it is not unusual to see a situation when one camera can produce results a bit darker or brighter than another. In some cases, lenses are to blame for this variance, since most lenses cannot ideally transmit all of the incoming light. What this means, is that a lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 could potentially transmit less light, which could be equivalent to say f/3.5 in terms of brightness. The latter number is what is often referred to as a “T-stop”, or Transmission-stop, which is basically an adjusted f-stop that takes into account this light loss. In other cases, the camera itself can be the source of brightness variance. Although manufacturers are supposed to adhere to an ISO standard that guides the process of determining the right brightness level for each ISO, there is usually still some variance between not only brands, but also between specific camera models. We won’t get into the question of why there are such variances. Instead, we will concentrate on implications of such variances to camera sensor comparisons and ratings. Particularly, we will be looking at exposure variances in Fuji cameras, such as the Fuji X-T1. Many photographers, including myself, have been fond of the way Fuji sensors render images, outputting very clean and pleasant-looking images, even at high ISOs. But are those ISOs real? And is Fuji doing something shady to make its images look better? Let’s take a closer look…..

Aussie Alpine Drive – An Australian Roadtrip To Californian Forest | Noah Stammbach

We met on a special cliff near Bondi Beach. The vague destination of our spontaneous road trip – Laurel Hill, somewhere south west of Sydney. There are four of us, 18 to 28, and our journey is one where all the elements of adventure would be found along the way, and come together to form the best first road trip ever….

Fujinon 10-24mm | Jorge F Marques

So, let’s talk about the Fujinon 10-24 mm f/4. I had mixed feelings about this lens at first, primarily  because I enjoyed the Canon 16-35 mm f/2.8 II so much. There’s always some pain when we decide to change systems (or anything in our lives, I guess), so Fuji had big shoes to fill. Again, this is not a technical review. There are many people that talk about chromatic aberrations, distortions and falloff, so if that’s what you want you’d better stop here. I only intend to talk about the results I achieved and, frankly, whether or not it gives me what I need. In one word, yes. It isn’t perfect, but yes. My main concern is the flare. Although beautiful at most times, it’s a bit excessive when shot at direct sunlight and it can be an issue. It’s definitely hard to control and much more unpredictable than my previous experiences with wide angle lenses.  Another thing that never happened to me was the reflection of the letters in the front of the lens on the filter. So if you use one (I always use a UV in all my lenses), beware that it can show up in your pictures in direct sunlight. A problem? Not really, but rather a inconvenience………

One Year with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Peter Dareth Evans

The above photo – taken a couple of days after grabbing the X-Pro1 with the bundled 18mm f/2 lens, that was when I kind of fell in love. It’s plenty sharp with beautiful colours and a natural filmic character to its unobtrusive noise at high ISO. What’s more, the quiet shutter-click and compact old school styling made it completely unobtrusive. After a chat about the curious camera, the blacksmith just let me work the scene, with nary a further glance. Yes, it’s been one year now that I’ve been shooting with my X-Pro1. Here are some thoughts on my time with Fuji’s first X-Trans camera and how I’ve found the shooting experience, and whether it might be the right camera for you…

Fuji X-Pro1 – Should you still buy one? | Dave Young

For a camera that is just 3 years old the Fuji X-Pro1 is one of those cameras that polarises opinion in so many ways. First announced back in January 2012 and launched in March 2012, the X-Pro1 is likely to go down as a classic. It was the flagship model that fully launched Fuji into interchangeable lens systems and in part thanks to the hybrid viewfinder allowing photographers the option of choosing between an optical finder (OVF) and an electronic view (EVF), along with previews of depth of field and white balance.  It’s a camera that in many ways is tough to better and for many Fujiholics, the wait continues for the release of the X-Pro2, a new improved X-Pro1, once more trail blazing the Fuji name. The question many still ask though, is should you still invest your money in an X-Pro1 now, with Fuji moving forward with revised technology, and the X-Pro1 slowly getting left behind. The release of Fuji’s XT-1 certainly upped the game for Fuji, even though the styling was somewhat different to the X-Pro1. It features no rangefinder style cues like the X-Pro1 has but the technology is certainly a step on from the X-Pro1………

How I Use Black Tape on My Fujifilm X100 for Street Photography |
Olafs Osh

You can solve everything with black tape. If not, you just don’t have enough tape. In this post, I’ll show you how I prepare my Fujifilm X100 camera for street shooting. It will cover my specific style of shooting, so some things might not work for you. Here’s how I shoot: I shoot fully manual except for Auto ISO, which I set on 1600 or 3200. For the most part I use zone focusing and tend to keep the camera in my palm and inside my jacket’s pocket (that will be obvious below). Lets start with the bottom. Piece of tape covers the speaker. It does prevent moisture and dust from entering a camera, especially that, if you put it down, you’ll probably do it bottom facing down. No need to worry about dusty table or spilled/beer/milk. And since I have muted all the sounds and don’t do any video recording, speakers are useless………

Fuji 50-140mm review: A wonderfuly fast telephoto | Olivier Duong

Conclusion

The Fuji 50-160mm is an amazing lens. It’s beautiful, fast and has great stabilization. It allows you to get very close and personal without physically doing so. If you are used to wider angles, the change is pretty radical, but once you get use to it, the lens is magic with superb performance and creamy Bokeh……..

Fuji 16-55mm review: An excellent versatile lens | Olivier Duong

Conclusion

In short, if you are not into primes (or even if you are…), this is THE lens to get. It’s not as portable as some other Fuji lenses like the 18mm, but it more than makes up for it in terms of image quality and speed. The close focus capabilities are the icing on the cake. This is the kind of lens that you can glue it to your camera and not use much any lens for quite some time…….

Views of Kenya with the Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 WR | Matt Brandon

So just before I left for Kenya, I got a WhatsApp message from my contact at Fujifilm Malaysia telling me they had the yet-to-be-released Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 WR. I have been waiting for this lens since it showed up on the Fujifilm Lens Road Map. A 16mm f/ 1.4? That’s a lot of light!  But the real question was going to be, would I feel it was wide enough? Let’s face it, a 16mm lens on the X-system is effectively a 24mm in 35mm-speak and I generally like shooting wide. I like fast even better. This lens has not disappointed me. I really wanted to write this review before leaving and post it the day the lens was officially announced, but unfortunately I got the lens only the day before I left for Kenya and I have been working on an OFMP training everyday since I arrived. I was able to carve out a few moments here and there to put this little guy through some of it’s paces……
