Fuji X-Pro1

Myanmar (Burma) – Travel photography paradise | Björn Moerman

When planning my travels, I’m often try to have the most spectacular and interesting places towards the end of the trip and this how it worked out again during my latest photo-adventure to Myanmar (Burma)! I often find myself needing a few days to fully “get into the zone” during these longer photo-adventures.

BAGAN
In the last part of my Myanmar blog-series, we first will be visiting the ancient city of Bagan (Pagan); From the 9th till the 13th centuries, the city was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first Kingdom that did unify the regions and that would eventually become modern Myanmar. During the height of the Kingdom between the 11th and 13th century, more than 10.000 temples, pagodas and monasteries were built in the plains of Bagan. Today over 2200 remain in a surprisingly good condition….

Out & About With The Fuji 50-140mm f2.8 | Derek Clark

I went walkabout the other day while there was a bit of good weather, and by that, I mean dry and bright, because it certainly wasn’t warm. I wanted to try out the Fuji 50-140 f2.8 in daylight. I’ve already reviewed the lens under studio conditions which you can see HERE. I ended up shooting some street photography and capturing something I wouldn’t have thought possible, handholding at the equivalent of 210mm at 1/28th of a second and getting a sharp image. I had to double check the Exif Data on this one because I thought I was seeing things. As you can see from the crop above, this is again very sharp and I’m shooting wide open at f2.8. You can see the street shots I took processed in B&W using Silver Efex Pro over at 35mmStreet. But have a look at some colour shots before you go. Before I reached the streets I went for a walk near the Science Centre by The River Clyde in Glasgow (Scotland). The next few pictures should show how sharp this thing is. It does take the X Series on a different direction because when the 50-140mm is attached to an X body, gone is that feeling of small, discreet, fly on the wall photography. It’s a big lens and it feels and looks like a 70-200mm. The size of the camera doesn’t really matter. I was using the X-T1 with the battery grip…..

Gadfly Gives Up or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and
Love Digital Black-and-White | Mike Johnston

Digital took black-and-white away. To me it’s the biggest change about the Digital Transition (which I define as 1994–2011). “Black and white are the colors of photography,” said Robert Frank. That “are” would now have to be changed to “were.” I’ve made the point many times that for some of us—those of us who approach working with a camera by learning to see the way the camera and lens sees—being able to convert a color file to B&W is not the same thing as having a camera that only shoots B&W. If the camera natively shoots color, I see in color. Can’t help it. People who look at it like it’s only a technical question can’t see the point in a B&W-only camera; they’d just convert the file. They don’t get it: we see with our brains, and if the way you conceive of making pictures is to adapt your brain to the way the camera and lens are recording the image, then you’ll only “see” in B&W if that’s what your camera is seeing. So for a long time I agitated for dedicated B&W camera, saying I’d buy one when someone made it. Then someone did…Leica. Leica was a slightly more expensive brand of camera in the marketplace when I got into photography, costing a modest 10 to 30% more than similar Nikon equipment. Now, Leicas are Veblen goods marketed mainly to the carriage trade and cost many multiples of what similar equipment costs…..

APD : The New King | Ivan Joshua Loh

In the colorful kingdom of Fujifilm; there live a Portrait King. Its name; the XF 56mm F1.2R. He has been king for very obvious reason in the mirrorless world. A famous household name. Pretty small and lightweight compere with its full frame system from other kingdom. Its has help photographers produce gorgeous and creamy bokeh. Until now; there might be a new King with a slightly longer name. APD, the 3 letter word that represent the pinnacle of a portrait lens? Is it worth $500 premium? The question will be, if you are already the owner of XF 56mm F1.2, will you sell its and buy the APD version? And the other question will be if you don’t own a 56mm and plan to get one, which 56mm should you get? The XF 56mm F1.2 or XF 56mm F1.2 APD. I will take you through the paces and see what is the real difference between this 2 great lens from Fuji and let you make your own decision…….

Scotland for Ernest Journal / Fuji X-E2 Travel Photography |
Colin Nicholls

I was recently once again contacted by Ernest Journal Magazine with a request to head up to Scotland, take on a few assignments and see some incredible sights, all for the feature and cover of their second issue. Of course I said yes. I had 4 goals on my trip and a few places to visit, in short these were:

  • Meet a prawn fisherman, head out on his boat and get some photos of him fishing. This was a great job to have, very interesting but also rather difficult to balance on a small boat, while taking photos.
  • Visit an oyster farm, great seeing how oysters are farmed, met some really nice people and was given a seafood platter fit for a party of 4, needless to say I tried some awesome food.
  • Travel to the Isle of Skye, meet some weavers who use a bicycle powered loom to make all sorts of things, very interesting and such a welcoming couple.
  • Covershoot, during my whole time in Scotland I was aiming to get a good selection of images for the magazine to choose their covershoot, in the end they went for one shot at Sligachan on the Isle of Skye……

Fuji X Buyer’s Guide :: Part 1 :: Cameras | Zack Arias

I have been a Fuji fan boy since the original X100 and, as you can see from the photo above, I have continued to drink the Fuji juice. That’s almost all of my Fuji gear. I have a few things loaned out right now. All I wanted was a small easy to carry camera that had great image quality. I wasn’t looking for a new system. I didn’t need a new system. I just needed that thing in between a point and shoot or cell phone camera and a full fledged DSLR. That’s where the X100 came in. Then Fuji introduced the X-Pro1 and hired me to go shoot with it in India. I still wasn’t looking for a new system. Look at all the shit I have now. I’m asked on a daily basis what my thoughts are on this X camera vs. that X camera. Which lens? Which accessory? Which battery? But what about the Sony or Olympus such and such? The goal of these posts is to answer those questions. All of these answers are based on my personal opinion and from using this gear on personal projects and paid client work. Remember — these are my opinions. This isn’t a review of the gear. This isn’t a gallery of sample images. This post is for those of you looking into a system like this and I’m giving you an educated opinion. Also note that no one is paying me a dime or a yen to make this post…….

Montego Bay Wedding Photographer | Ashley & Garret |
Vincent Opoku

How do I put into words all the things that took place during Ashley & Garret’s Destination Wedding in Montego Bay, Jamaica? These guys are from Newfoundland, the most Eastern Province in Canada. Temperatures during the winter months can drop to -25°C. So put them on a Caribbean Island for a week with lots of sunshine, temperatures in the region of +30°C, the Caribbean Sea, some good Rum and in the company of 40 other cool and crazy Canadians and there is bound to be lots of fun. In all honesty, Ashley did warn me in advance “I don’t know if you’ve heard much about Newfoundlanders but there are a famous breed of people here in the western part of the world and I just know that the week is going to be riot!” Ashley and Garret jumping off the cliff together at Rick’s Cafe in Negril the day after their wedding remains one of my favourite moments ever as a wedding photographer. Don’t worry Ash, I won’t tell anyone that you was scared to death about the whole process. The wedding day itself took place on the 10 year anniversary to the day that they went on their first date. How cool is that?! And I swear their two kids Rae and GiGi are the cutest ever! We still keep in touch, the odd text and FaceTime session here and there. We even spent two days doing touristy stuff this summer when they visited London. I guess it is safe to say that I have made some friends for life now, and it all began on the beautiful Island of Jamaica earlier this year……..

Punjab travelogue and my X100s | Sinbad Phgura

For me photography has been a life long passion , I got my first a square 35mm box tammy camera at the age of nine and and have been shooting ever since. I use mostly digital format cameras now, but not much has changed subject-wise, it’s people that I like to capture most, working with natural light & keeping the whole process as simple as possible. The magic for me has always been in the character study, to capture the honesty of the moment, & to connect with the soul somehow. That’s why India is such a joy to shoot, with all of it’s humanity right there in front of you to see, smell, hear & touch! I love the light, it’s incredible how its shades, textures & changes everything it touches throughout the day. I’ve been around the Fujifilm X system for a while now, one of my best friends Alex Lambrechts shoots with it & I know that these cameras are capable of stunning results! But I myself have so far have resisted to try one. It’s only when you have the camera in your hand and you have to shoot with it for a period of time, adjusting your mindset from dslr to rangefinder that the magic happens. Equipped with the Fuji X100s and a Millican camera bag I was off on my journey, Qatar Airways to Amritsar & into the heartland of the Punjab for my nephew’s wedding…….

Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8 vs. Fuji 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 | Jordan Steele

While the two lenses share much of their range, they are certainly not identical lenses.  The 55-200mm is about 2/3 the length, features a body made predominantly of high-grade plastics and features a non-weathersealed extending zoom mechanism.  The 50-140mm f/2.8 is an internally zooming, weathersealed lens made of metal and plastics that is not only larger but notably heavier than the 55-200mm.  In fact, it’s 71% heavier than its slower sibling. The 50-140mm is by far the largest current lens for the Fuji X System, and it’s one of the largest mirrorless lenses period.  However, it’s still roughly the same size as a full frame 70-200mm f/4 lens, so we’re not talking enormous, but it definitely will require a good size bag.  Overall, the 50-140mm is the better constructed lens, while the 55-200mm handles much easier and fits better within the ‘small camera system’ mentality. There’s also a rather hefty price difference, with the 55-200mm available right now for only $550 (regularly $700), while the 50-140mm will run you a whopping $1599….

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56 mm f/1.2 R review | Lenstip.com

It is true that the Fujinon XF 56 mm f/1.2 R has many advantages – after all not every lens manages to break resolution records like it does. On the other hand the cons list consists of as many as four positions; taking into account the price of the 1.2/56 model it might be considered a bit worrisome. Still you need to assess those cons properly. The vignetting level is significant; still the lens fares better than its full frame rivals – even the Leica DG Nocticron 42.5 mm f/1.2 Asph. P.O.I.S., designed for smaller Micro 4/3 sensors, fared significantly worse in that category. With such extreme parameters and moderate physical dimensions of the lens (the Fujinon is after all significantly smaller than e.g. the Nikkor AF-S 85 mm f/1.8G) it is really very difficult to get high MTF values on the edge of the frame. We are not surprised the tested device failed to do so by f/1.2-2.0. The only slip-ups which surprised us in a negative way and which were, in our opinion, avoidable, are the work against bright light and the longitudinal chromatic aberration. Even such a fast instrument as the tested Fujinon should correct that aberration better. To sum up it would be difficult not to be satisfied with the performance of the Fujinon 1.2/56 – it is really a good instrument which might provide an experienced user with plenty of great shots. Unfortunately it also follows the overpricing trend, so characteristic for X system lenses. Even a slight price reduction would improve our overall impressions…..
