Fuji X-Pro1

Putting the Fujinon XF50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR to the test |
Rebecca Frogley

Fujifilm’s Fujinon XF50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR — a zoom designed for Fujifilm’s X-series lenses — offers the most frequently used telephoto focal lengths, with some serious optics to boot. Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal-length range of 76–213mm (when used in conjunction with the X series’ 1.52x crop factor), and with a minimum one-metre focusing distance across the entire zoom range, it’s ideal for not only capturing fast-moving and distant subjects in the great outdoors, but also for shooting portraits. So, with that in mind, I put the XF50–140mm to the test in the studio with some rather unconventional subjects. When I first handled the lens, we were made aware of its solidity — weighty and reassuring — which is something that I’ve come to expect from the majority of the higher-end Fujifilm lenses. While it’s certainly not lightweight, sitting at just under a kilo, it balances quite comfortably on the X-T1 with a battery grip attached — and personally, I’ve never had a problem with carrying a little more glass……..

The Q menu | Julie Edwards

I was talking to a colleague the other day and he seemed unaware that the Q-menu was customisable. I offered to write a short blog on it (based upon the X-T1, the X-Pro-1 is very similar). Not sure what I’m talking about?  What is the Q-menu? Basically the Q button on the rear of the camera (Fuji X-T1  X-Pro1) provides fast access to a number of settings arranged in a grid as below. This grid is called the Q-menu. Here is my current Q-menu (although it is always in a state of flux). I don’t use all of the functions and my aim was to have the items I need to change often quickly accessible…….

An Introduction to Camera Color Profiles in Your Editing Workflow |
Chris Gampat

Though they’re a staple to the more advanced photo editors among us, Camera Profiles are a little known about feature that many folks don’t know about, understand or use. If you’ve ever looked at your camera’s LCD screen, shot in RAW, and wanted your RAW image to look exactly like the JPEG then you’ve probably also spent a long time trying to match them up perfectly only to get disappointed. It’s tough, but it’s also honestly useless to try it when the camera manufacturer often gives you exactly what you need if you use Adobe Lightroom. In Adobe Lightroom’s Develop panel, you simply go down to the Process area near the bottom, click on profile and scroll through. ……..

Sibling Rivalry: The Underestimated XC 50-230mm |
Rob Zeigler

There are many reviews on the internet about Fuji’s well known XF zooms: the 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 and the 50-140mm f/2.8. I’ve even posted a recent review of the red-badged professional grade XF 50-140mm myself and noted its amazing quality, but you’d be hard pressed to find as much information about a third sibling in Fuji’s lineup: the XC 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7. Labeled as a cheaper consumer product, this lens is often overlooked in favor of its two older brothers. Like most younger brothers who strive to compete with their older brothers, the XC 50-230mm packs a surprising combination of size, weight and immense reach that not even the 50-140mm can match……..

Bokeh – meaning and use of bokeh in photography |
Sebastian Boatca

Sometimes in our lives, especially when we had to deal with photography, we have encountered the following term : „Bokeh“. Well, it has this strange Asian sound and flavor, so what could it mean? The word “Bokeh” actually comes from the Japanese word “boke” ボケ, which means “blur”. The “h” at the end was added to emphasize on the correct pronunciation by the English speakers. “Bokeh” refers to the quality and aesthetics of the blurry parts (out of focus areas) in an image, taken by a photographic lens. It is not something you could really mathematically measure, or quantify, but more of an aspect which relates to photographic artistic principles……..

Will 2016 Be Fuji’s Year? | DigitalRev

As Kai and our editorial team largely agreed (along with well, pretty much everyone), 2015 was a good year for Sony. Sony didn’t necessarily make the most cameras, but they arguably made the best ones. They showed no fear and explored all potential markets with innovative compacts, superzooms, DSLRs, video cameras, and of course mirrorless options. It’s possible that in 2016 they can replicate their feats with an arsenal of spanking new equipment—Sony already seem to chain their engineers to their desks with IV tubes plugged in. After working around the clock, Sony can stun the photography and tech world once more with 100 megapixel, 8K video, and ISO 1,000,000,000 cameras. But I think this year will be humble Fujifilm’s time to shine……..

Fujifilm 35mm f2 review | Cameralabs

The Fujifilm XF 35mm f2 is a fairly bright prime lens delivering standard coverage when mounted on one of the company’s X-series bodies. Announced in October 2015, it’s the second 35mm lens for the X-system, joining the original XF 35mm f1.4 which helped launch the system almost four years earlier. Both lenses deliver 52.5mm equivalent coverage when mounted on an X-series body, providing the classic general-purpose standard field of view that’s equally at home with landscapes and interiors as it is with portraits and group shots. The XF 35mm f2 may have a focal ratio that’s one stop slower than the original 35mm f1.4, but like other recent Fujifilm primes, it boasts weather resistance. As a newer lens, the XF 35mm f2 also enjoys faster focusing and Fujifilm’s additionally taken the opportunity to equip it with nine aperture blades compared to seven on the f1.4 version. So despite initially looking like a smaller, more budget oriented standard prime, the new XF 35mm f2 actually enjoys a number of key advantages over the original model……

Fuji 35mm f2 review: A small but wonderful lens | Olivier Duong

I think the 35mm focal length is a favorite amongst photographers because it is a sweet spot, i’s not too wide and it’s not too narrow (I guess that is why it’s the focal length of choice of the Fuji X100). Many wanted to have the same lens on their exchangeable lens cameras like their XT1 or Xpro, but unfortunately this is NOT a TRUE 35mm, with the APSC crop factor taken into account, it’s essentially a 53mm “normal”, “nifty fifty” lens. But this is not a deal breaker as this is a stellar lens. The only alternative to this lens is the Fuji 35mm 1.4 which is a monster of a lens, not only in terms of quality but also weight and size. Enter the Fuji 35mm f2, a lens that not only has a very attractive price point (399 release price) but is also rangefinder lens size. The size is important not only because of portability (it can fit in your pocket) but also because it doesn’t attract too much attention to you and your camera…….

Fuji MCEX-11 Macro Extension Tube | Ted A. Vieira

I bought the Fuji XF 56mm f1.2 lens a little while ago primarily to do portraiture and boudoir work. It’s a beautiful lens that can produce some pretty amazing shots. The minimum focal distance for this lens is somewhere around 2.3 feet and one thing that I kind wished I could do with this lens is get a bit closer to the subject sometimes. I decided to try the MCEX-11 with that lens to see if that might help me accomplish what I was looking to do, to be able to get that closer now and then. An imporant thing to be aware of if you’re considering this accessory…….

Choosing a Raw Processor for Fuji X-Trans Files – Updated |
Thomas Fitzgerald

A couple of years ago I wrote a blog post about choosing a raw converter for Fuji X-Trans files. I spoke about which was my favourite piece of software at the time, and I did a pros and cons list for some of the various different converters on the market. Since that was back in 2014, a lot has changed since then. There are major new versions of several of the applications out now, and I’ve changed my mind as to which I prefer personally. The original post still gets lots of traffic, but because of the fact that the applications have been updated, and as I’ve much more experience now, I felt that it was time to do an updated version of that article. Before I get to the comparison chart, let me first talk about how my own preferences have changed. At the time of the original post, Photo Ninja was my preferred converter. While I do still like Photo Ninja, it hasn’t received any major updates in over 2 years. All of the other applications that I use have been updated. I also feel that for my usage, Capture One is a better all round application. Of course, that’s just my personal preference……..
