A Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 Review – Sometimes, it’s just about love |
Mirrorlessons

Sometimes it is challenging to be totally objective. Reviews aren’t just about technical charts and specifications, but also about feelings, perception and the various influences around you. This past weekend I got the chance to test the new XF 56mm f/1.2 by Fuji. It is a standard portrait lens (85mm equivalent) so a proper portrait session was unavoidable. However, this time, instead of looking elsewhere I decided to take some beautiful portraits of my better half. I often take photos of her in various conditions and with various lenses for the sake of the website, including some less-flattering lenses. (Think the Fuji 10-24mm!) This time, I had the chance to make things right. It was hard to not love the results in the end! ……

INK | Sven Schroeter

While wandering the streets we have identified an increase of tattoos and ink art in the population. As most of you have probably noticed (if you are not already part of the movement yourself), tattoos are a popular form of self expression and a creative outlet. Individuals from all walks of life are participating, checkout operators, stock brokers, farmers, students and the list goes on. We have decided to launch a new photography project entitled ‚ink‘, in part to document a trend we have picked up on but also to record a slice of  pop culture. To kick off the project, we wiggled our way into the very first Auckland ‚custom culture and tattoo‘ show in hope of gaining access to some of the artists at work……

Zoom! At f2.8 | Don Craig

It has been a while in arriving, but I finally own the new Fujinon XF50-140mm f2.8 lens. This is the one lens that my work kit has been missing since I switched to Fuji X-cameras. Earlier, I resorted to using the work Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 lens on the D600 when I have needed a longer zoom. More recently, I used the XF55-200mm variable aperture lens, which has worked well in certain circumstances. However, the new XF50-140mm lens is and will be my go-to lens when I need the reach. I was so certain of the quality of this lens, I ordered it without having tried it or even seen it. I had every confidence that Fujifilm would once again produce a stellar piece of glass. They have. The XF50-140 lens is robust. It is robust in size and build. Although smaller and lighter than it’s full-frame counterparts, it is still a significant lens. You will not wonder which lens is attached to your camera body when you grab it from your bag…….

Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition: So good they coloured it twice |
Adam Oxford

Pity the poor copywriter who works for a paint manufacturing company. It’s got to make the brain sore when you have to think up unique names for 50 different shades of beige. You’d think it would be easier if you’re making cameras for a living: they tend to be black or grey or, in extreme cases, shouty neon pink. And yet no: Fujifilm is so proud of the soft matte finish on the refresh model of its X-T1 flagship mirrorless camera that it’s neither graphite nor silver. It’s Graphite Silver, and it’s ace. Graphite Silver. A matte finish to the hard metal edges of the original black X-T1 which has a slightly soft, plastic feel and frankly oozes class. It looks great and feels good in the hand too. But is it worth the premium you pay over the vanilla X-T1 which is, let’s face it, only a year old anyway? Other than the respray, the X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition is, for almost all functional and physical purposes, identical to the existing X-T1. The body is the same size and weight, with the lines of a classic SLR before they started getting outsized. The button layout is the same and every last piece of hardware inside is identical. The only slight differences are that the rubberised grip is slightly stickier than the original and the back buttons feel marginally more responsive……..

Fujinon XF 56mm 1.2 R APD | Adam Oxford

The relationship between aperture and depth of field is one of the first things you learn when you start to take photography seriously. Controlling this is relationship is a good portion of making your pictures look more professional. A narrow aperture means more of the photograph will be in focus, a wide aperture creates those lovely out of focus backgrounds and keeps just the subject sharp. Portrait photographers have to balance keeping the aperture of their lens low enough to blur details behind the person they’re shooting and keeping the whole face in focus. Having a speckled ‘bokeh’ backdrop is no use if the ears are slightly out of focus too. Which is why Fujifilm’s latest high speed lens, the XF 56mm 1.2 R APD, includes a built-in ‘apodisation filter’ designed to both enhance image sharpness at the wide apertures used for portraiture and simultaneously smooth the bokeh in the background. And it works. The bokeh really is even creamier and smoother than the standard XF 56mm lens (which also has an F1.2 aperture). It’s best to let the pictures do the talking here, so click through the sample gallery below…….

Review: Fujifilm 11mm Extension Tube MCEX-11 | Jordan Steele

Fuji surprised the market by releasing something that is both the first of its kind and something that people have been waiting for since the beginning of mirrorless: Native OEM extension tubes. It’s surprising to me that it took 6 years for the first original equipment manufacturer to create extension tubes for their system.  In November 2014, Fuji announced the MCEX-11 and MCEX-16: 11mm and 16mm extension tubes for their X-Series cameras.  Third party manufacturers have made a handful of extension tubes for various mounts for some time, but these two are the first from the camera manufacturers themselves.  In this short review, I’m going to take a look at the Fuji 11mm extension tube, the MCEX-11, which retails for $99 ……

Fuji’s 50-140 | Dyanne Wilson

So what can one do with the 50-140 that you can’t with the 55-200?  I recently had the opportunity to try out Fuji’s new 50-140 F2.8 OIS WR sealed lens.  The whole time I’m asking myself if I should replace my 55-200 mm with this lens.  Actually I’m still up in the air about it and this blog post serves to explore why I should buy this lens.  The Fujifilm 50-140 is no doubt a fine piece of glass with its constant 2.8 aperture.  It is at 995g considerably heavier than the 55-200 at 580g.  The weather sealing is an attractive feature as I do quite like to shoot outside with it.  In my mind it really is an exquisite portrait lens though.  I do generally like getting close to my subject at a wide aperture, relying less on flash if possible.  However, for the first two studio portraits of my nieces, I did use a little off camera flash to the left. What really blew me away was the OIS.  I mean I took this photo handheld at 110.6 F8 for 1/15 second !  …..

Learn Photography from Pro Photographers | V. Opoku

My name is V. Opoku, but usually just V does the trick and I am documentary wedding photographer based in London, UK (for now). I am also a bit of a traveller, you know the type of guy to book a one way ticket somewhere and then figure things out from there – yep, one of those guys. About 20 months ago, I started to use the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography. It was not an intentional switch from DSLR to Mirrorless because at the time I did not have any gear (my Nikon D700 kit got stolen). Shooting exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Series was just a discovery that worked out well for me. My vision is to build human connections whilst creating a body of work that clients will cherish for years to come. And I feel that my current kit has really helped me bring that vision to life ; In the sense that the smaller and more discreet cameras and lenses helps me to blend in much easier on wedding days……

Fuji X Adventures in North America – Rust Belt Pilgrim |
Peter Dareth Evans

This is McKean County, Pennsylvania. Once the Allegheny hills were a forest of oil derricks, stretching as far as the eye could see along the ridges and valleys between Bradford, Olean, Kane and Smethport.  But then after the second world war the Mid-West oil industry collapsed when richer and easier pickings were found elsewhere. Now the trees have returned to the hills of McKean County, where they tactfully mask the industrial scars of old leaking pipes and rusting machinery. Here in the deep forest you hike and hunt alone at your peril. Folk have fallen through the rotting boards covering the shafts of old oil wells. A sudden snap and then a long agonising tumble, a broken leg and no phone reception – miles from civilisation. So I made sure I stuck to the roadside for my photography. But still, here and there nestled in isolated pockets on the winding country roads, industry survives. Smoke rises from the stacks. Steam boils from the pipes. You can hear the hum of machinery and the clanking of gears and wheels. This is rust belt America, but here and there you can see signs of recovery. The county capital of Bradford may have lost half her population in the crash that followed the 1940’s, but unlike the deprived ex-mining communities in the valleys of South Wales there’s still hope…….

Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS – Review / Test Report | PhotoZone

Verdict

If you read our analysis so far, you may have noticed a few negative findings but this has to be seen in a context. Ultra-wide lenses are never flawless and the Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS is actually one of the best representative of its species. It is very sharp in the image center and the border- and corner quality is very decent. Lateral chromatic aberrations are also low. Yes, image distortion and vignetting can be very noticeable at the extreme wide end but most users will probably take advantage of image auto-correction here anyway. In terms of build quality, we are highly impressed. Fujinon lenses are better than most here anyway but Fujifilm has reached a new level here. However, even so it is a bit disappointing that they didn’t provide weather sealing. While it isn’t something unusual anymore, we certainly appreciate the image stabilizer which actually lifts the low light capabilities of this zoom lens beyond the two ultra-wide prime lenses (Zeiss Touit 12mm f/2.8 and Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 R) of the system. If you are still not convinced by now … the author will keep the lens in his private stock. Consequently … highly recommended!
