The Very Best X-Trans Lightroom Workflow | Hendrik Hazeu

OKOKOK – or maybe the very worst ;-) … All depends on your preferences and from which perspective you look at it ! I just prefer to spend as little time behind a computer screen as possible & rather’d go out take some PIX ! … Like this one, i found in Buitrago de Lozoya, Spain where there’s a great Pablo Picasso Museum: Go on and take a look, if you get a chance, you sure ain’t gonna regret it ! Anyway – in this Blog i’d like to share my X-Trans workflow. Yeah I know this kinda topic has been beaten to death elsewhere, but after reading ‘em all i developed my own “simplified” workflow & hope it’s of some interest to you X-Trans fans out there ! So, before X-Trans life was easy: import images, move some sliders around, DONE ! Then along came Fuji with their ab-so-lute-ly AWESOME APS-C X-Trans sensor – and nothing worked no more ! Even Adobe’s latest re-incarnation of Lightroom 5.7 still don’t cut it for me: The converted RAW files still often demonstrate the dreaded “smearing effect” on green foliage and other small details …

Fuji XF16-55mm 1:2.8 R LM WR | Leigh Miller

They must be taking a few pages out of the Apple playbook: Create something that’s easy for people to love. Once you have their attention, keep on giving them a steady stream of the good stuff. From iPod to Macs legions of buyers line up overnight to get the latest one. Fuji pulled that one off with the Xpro1 and X100. I have friends who despite upgrading to the XT-1 and X100S/T…retreat to those older cameras on occasion out of pure love. Only Leica used to make photographers behave like that. Although I wasn’t initially sold on the system partly because of the workflow issues, they slowly won me over with the lenses and continuous improvements to the camera lineup via firmware. For most working professionals there are two lenses that stand out, a 24-70 and 70-200mm. With those you can cover pretty much any situation from portraits to landscapes. We also like the constant F/2.8 aperture for low-light and control over depth of field…….

Ian + Kim | Wilson Chiew

I am the cousin of the Bride. I attended the wedding as a guest (not official photographer). My relative and I traveled all the way from Malaysia to London then to Sicily for this gorgeous wedding. It was a blessed wedding where everything went fine especially the weather was nice. This was my first ever experience a western style wedding and I found it was different as compared to my traditional chinese culture wedding. Sit down and enjoy the photo sets =) | Photos taken using Fujifilm XPro-1 and XE-2

The Fuji XF 16-55 LM WR | Adam King

Today may be Friday the 13th, but it is also the first day after the US embargo on delivery of Fuji newest XF Zoom, the FUJINON XF 16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR. I had pre-ordered and arranged for overnight delivery. So I am one of the few with this thing already in hand.  I have a concert lined up for tonight that I’m shooting (G. Love and Special Sauce at the House of Blues Chicago), so the first samples will wait until the follow-up to this in the next couple days. What I can offer are a few shots of the gear, and some very early impressions. This is the first Fuji lens that actually feels large to me. The 18-135 and 55-200 felt slim, and even the 50-140 felt quite compact for the range and aperture it was covering. This feels quite substantial. It carries a 77mm filter size, and weighs in at 655 grams (1.4 lbs).  It still holds a “mirrorless advantage” over similar range and aperture such at the Canon EF 24-70 2.8 at 805g (1.77 lbs) but it is actually heavier than some like the Canon EF 24-70 F4 IS which comes in at 600g (1.32lbs) AND includes image stabilization. In full frame equivalence the Fuji would be a 24-84mm F4.  (The math on the aperture is less accepted but I’m not here to argue that. Call it 2.8 if you want)…….

To Africa with the Fuji X-T1 | David duChemin

My conversion to, and love affair with, smaller cameras is about as complete as it can be now. If the social media I’m reading is to be believed, it’s complete for many others as well. Photographers seem to be jettisoning their heavy DSLR gear in favour of smaller mirror-less cameras, and while I doubted I’d be doing so as quickly, when I get on the plane to Kenya for two weeks of assignment work tomorrow, I won’t be taking a DSLR. My transition has been slow. I took my Fuji X-E1 to Italy 2 years ago, but I was teaching and not worried about the consequences of coming home  without the images I expected and having fallen out of love with the Fuji. That, of course, didn’t happen, and there was so much I loved about it, not just the images it gave me but the way it lightened my load. Then I went to Ethiopia and Kenya, and took my Leica M(240) and the same X-E1, and that put the final nails in the coffin; so impressed was I with the performance of those two cameras I decided my days traveling with my DLSR gear for this kind of trip were over.

Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro Review | Peecee Studio

The Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro is Fuji’s only macro lens for the Fujifilm X system and is the only option unless you opt for the much more expensive Zeiss 50mm f/2.8 Macro. It gives an equivalent angle of view as a 90mm lens on full-frame. Weighing in at 215g, it’s a good, lightweight option for a short telephoto prime lens or as a macro lens for doing food, product or the like where normal lenses don’t focus quite close enough. Despite its slower f/2.4 aperture, it’s still faster than Fuji’s professional zooms such as the 50-140mm f/2.8 OIS, meaning it’s perfect for use in most conditions but the dimmest lit areas. Unlike the Zeiss and most other macro lenses on other systems, the Fuji 60mm f/2.4 Macro only has a 0.5x magnification ratio, meaning that it is not “true 1.0x macro”, however, since the Fuji X system uses an APS-C sensor, a 0.5x magnification would be similar to a 0.75x magnification on full-frame. This level of magnification is enough for most things apart from small bugs and detail shots of flowers……….

Bali | Michael Schaake

Bali – dort wollte ich schon immer mal hin. Und da mein Onkel und meine Cousine zur Zeit 3 Monate dort sind – was lag also näher als den Flug zu buchen? Schon im letzten Jahr wollte ich diese Reise gerne machen. Diesmal sollte es klappen – und der Flug mit Qatar Airlines war schnell gebucht. Ich reise am Vorabend nach Frankfurt um den Check-In am nächsten Morgen in aller Ruhe hinter mich zu bringen. Der Flug ist ruhig – aber lang. Dazu kommen 8 Stunden Aufenthalt in Doha. Ausser in einer Lounge rumsitzen kann man dort eigentlich nicht viel machen. Ich verliere 2 mal meine Boarding Passes samt Führerschein. Na ja…ich bin wohl nicht so richtig wach ;-) Ist aber gut gegangen und ich habe es immer rechtzeitig gemerkt. “Aufmunternde” Worte des Sicherheitspersonals in Doha bekam ich kostenlos serviert. Wie kann man nur so grimmig gucken? Doha hat einen neuen Flughafen. Super modern, super teuer. Kurz vor der Landung sehe ich kleine Ortschaften unter uns hergleiten. Wir müssten doch eigentlich noch über dem Meer sein. Es stellt sich dann heraus, dass es sich um Tanker handelt, die vor der Küste beleuchtet auf Ihre Befüllung warten. Unglaublich wie viel Schiffe hier liegen. Man macht sich davon überhaupt keine Vorstellung. Aber irgendwie muss das Öl ja in die Welt gelangen………

Metz releases the Mecablitz 26AF-1, TTL flash for Fujifilm cameras |
Michael Archambault

The lack of digital flash units that work with Fujifilm’s TTL system are an example of how our favorite company has a bit of catching up to do within their lighting ecosystem. Up until now, if consumers wanted an external TTL flash, they were limited to specially designed units by Fujifilm themselves. Now, Metz has announced the upcoming availability of their Mecablitz 26AF-1, a digital TTL flash for Fujifilm system cameras. The Metz Mecablitz 26AF-1 is a digital flash that offers full TTL compatibility, along with a wireless slave TTL functionality. The unit runs on two AAA batteries and has a guide number of 85 at ISO 100 and 85mm. The unit can be tilted 90-degrees upward for bouncing light off surrounding structures. As a bonus, the flash unit contains a LED video light with two different output levels…….

Fuji 18mm F2 | K-pture

This small 18mm F2.0 is a leading Fuji XF targets placed on the market and therefore one of the oldest with the 35mm F1.4 . It is built entirely of metal, including his visor, which has the same look as the film 35 mm. Become rare thing today at Fuji as all shades are made of plastic. The aperture (f /) is controlled directly on the lens. The gear seems to me neither too soft, as is the case on all 14mm F2.8 I’ve tried, not too strong, maybe even too much. As for the development of wheel it seems quite smooth and precise. Thank you, by the way, to “focus peaking” X-E2. The front lens does not move when in focus as the 35mm. The 18mm is stationary. It is relatively quiet; more than 35mm is more noisy (this is relative). Fuji 18mm F2.0 is not too much angle (~ 27 mm). This is a rather special focal apart. It can therefore be used for group photos and landscapes, but also for the “not too close” portrait to avoid deforming the subject; as well as for street photography (although I know some street photographers swear by the 35mm focal length [23mm Fuji]……..

Review Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R | Anno Huidekoper

The Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R has very few competitors. Brands like Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina do not produce any lenses with the Fuji mount. Zeiss makes the Touit 12 mm f/2.8, and Samyang, a 16 mm f/2.0. The latter, however, does not have auto focus. From the brand itself, the Fujinon XF 10-24 mm f/4.0 almost comes close. If you’re going for high brightness and limited weight, then the 14 mm Fujinon XF premier reviewed here is more interesting than that zoom, though. The Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R is the most wide-angle premier from Fuji and reminds me of my Nikon F2AS, which I once had. The brightness, the size and the field of view are nearly identical, and I have a weakness for the field of view of roughly 90 degrees diagonally. We reviewed this Fujinon 14 mm lens in combination with the Fujifilm X-E2. This is the successor of the X-E1, a camera with an electronic viewfinder and the appearance and ease of use of a camera with an analog rangefinder……
