A Closer Look at Fuji’s New Weather-Resistant
XF 16-55mm f/2.8 Lens | Jaron Schneider

Last week at CES, Fuji announced the awaited weather-resistant 16-55mm f/2.8 zoom lens, which they have engineered to inhibit ghosting and flare from edge to edge to appeal to outdoor photographers who will have to battle different and ever-changing qualities of light and the placement of the sun. The XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR uses a light weight Internal Focusing System and a Twin Linear Motor for high-speed autofocus (AF) and whisper quiet AF as fast as 0.06 seconds. When combined with the near-silent shutter sound of the FUJIFILM X-T1, photos can be taken unnoticed in quiet and sensitive locations. The 16-55mm focal range is equivalent to a 24-84mm on a full frame sensor that offers 14 sealing points that makes the lens extremely resistant to water and especially dust. With that 24mm equivalent field of view at the widest, the lens should be pretty useful for outdoor photographers shooting landscapes, but equally useful for something like a portrait when fully extended to the 84mm equivalent……..

Choosing the Zeiss Touit 32mm over the Fuji XF 35mm |
Marco Sobrevinas

A big part of the Fuji X system’s success is its fantastic line of Fujinon lenses. In a short time, Fujifilm has created an extensive group of lenses. The XF line covers a wide variety of focal lengths, and started off with some fantastic prime lenses. Since then, they’ve improved their lenses’ AF capability with each generation, and added some phenomenal pro-quality zooms.  Among my favourite Fujinon XF lenses are their XF 18mm, 10-24mm and 23mm. In the middle of 2013, Zeiss introduced its Touit lenses for the Fuji X mount.  These lenses were designed in close collaboration with Fujifilm, and have full AF and inter-communication with the Fuji X camera bodies…..

Paris Engagement Photography Session | Sylvana & Jeremy |
Vincent Opoku

“Paris is always a good idea” and so is a Paris Engagement Photography Session. Engagement sessions are optional, do come at an extra cost but they are so worth it! Here is an insight into why I think they are worth the investment ; An engagement session gives us the opportunity to get to know a bit more about each other. We can go to a cafe, grab a meal and talk about everything (life, interests, wedding plans) and create some photographs along the way. Or we can plan a day out, to do an activity that you love and I will tag a camera along to document it. I try to get clients to understand that these sessions are not solely for taking photos but rather an opportunity to build relationships, to see each other as people and not just a business transaction. If we are going to celebrate one of the most important days of your lives together, let’s try and build something before that, let’s get comfortable with each other, let’s develop a level of trust between each other. It is also a good opportunity to gain an insight into how you and your partner interact with each other when there is a camera around. The photos we create are a bonus, they are yours to keep. As for me, it gives me the opportunity to try new things, take more risks and sharpen ideas that I can incorporate into my wedding portraiture skill set. Ultimately these sessions are never about the photos, they are about building connections and having fun…….

Fuji XF 14mm f2.8 R review | Rory Prior

Let’s just start by saying I’m really excited by this lens. I used to own the really nice Samyang 14mm f2.8 when I shot Nikon and it’s a focal length I’ve missed since switching to Fuji. For the last couple of years a Samyang 8mm fisheye was my fallback ultra-wide option, but fisheyes have limitations and I found I was using mine less and less. As a result I decided to sell it a few months ago. That left me with the 18mm f2 as my widest lens. The 18mm is a good lens, but it does have its shortcomings optically and I found myself yearning for something that could produce more dramatic results for landscape and street work. I did seriously consider Samyang’s new 12mm f2 ultra-wide angle, but I’ve read so many good things about the Fuji 14mm I decided to play it safe. I’m glad I did – this lens is clearly a winner……..

Fuji X-Series Images: How Big Will They Print? | Jeff Carter

I recently got involved in a conversation after a member of a Facebook group I belong to asked a question asking what was the largest size print he could obtain from the 16 megapixel X-Trans sensor.  This is a question I see quite a lot from photographers of all abilities.  I have been printed A2 images from 12mp sensor cameras since 2010 and still have several images the walls of my house taken on Nikon D90, D300S and Fujifilm X100. All of these cameras have a 12mp sensor and the images I have printed range from A3 (42cm x 29.7cm), A2 (59.4cm x 42cm) up to 70cm x 50cm, all with no loss of quality when compared with the original image. I also used a Nikon D800 and this camera boasts a massive 36mp sensor which certainly produces some impressive results but unless you print to billboard size you are not going to see any significant difference between the images produced by the D800 and the D300S, the main difference in quality is going to come from the lens quality used to record the image…….

A Scottish road trip | The big picture gallery

Having had a really busy couple of months in the gallery, I decided to have a few days off over Christmas and have a photographic trip up the north west side of Scotland. So plans made and accomodation booked, my partner Trudy and I eventually made it out of our village, and a snow covered Derbyshire and headed up the M6. I had been constantly checking webcams and weather reports for Glencoe, Skye and Wester Ross. The weather looked awful, I was banking on a clear spell for a few days whilst we were up there. The weather gods did not let us down, we had some fantastic light to shoot in. The one downside to our journey was that I forgot my tripod, and was cursing my rush to get away. So no slow shutter work for me. So the gear in my shootsac was Fuji Xt1, X pro 1, 14mm 35mm 18-55mm and the trusty 55-200mm and of course a plethora of batteries and chargers. I also took along my often used Epson p300 for backing up my images on…….

What It’s Like To Work For Fujifilm | Leigh Diprose

My name is Leigh Diprose and I’m a professional photographer with a passion to tell the world about photography. I thought I would write an article to share what it’s like to work for an imaging company, in my case Fujifilm Australia. I’ve been around cameras ever since the late 90s and more so when I started my first job in Sydney in the year 2000. Since then I’ve worked in photo labs and managed various retail photographic stores. The experience has proved worthwhile as I’ve learned a lot about cameras and imaging.  Having had the years of experience with darkrooms, film and digital I found myself exposed to a wide range of products and experiences. Part of my current role is to write informative photography articles while working alongside the product team. I spend a small part of my week interacting with many of you to help learn how X-Series cameras could be better. I also spend time conducting research through social media on what you like and don’t like about Fujifilm’s cameras. This all in turn helps me write a better article on the Fujifilm Australia Blog as well as contributing to make the products better……

Shooting the XF16-55mm F2.8 promo movie:
the Fuji X-T1 filming experience | Charlene Winfred

Have you watched the new Fujinon XF 16-55mm f2.8 promotional movie? No? What are you waiting for? I love the delicious hedonism of car commercials, slivers of light slipping over sinuous metal curves, evoking speed, performance, beauty, divine luxury. I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to shoot a car commercial for a company like BMW, or Subaru. When Flemming and I pitched the Fuji XF16-55 project to Fujifilm Japan, which included a video component, I had only one thing on my mind: A car is a shiny metal object with curves. A lens is a shiny metal object with curves. The X-T1’s version 3 firmware included manual video control. Give its to us, the preciousssssssssss! At the start of December, Fujifilm Japan sent a big box to my Mum’s place in Singapore, containing the new XF16-55mm f2.8 for Flemming, and for me, a Silver Graphite edition of the X-T1 loaded with pre-release version 3 firmware, and an XF 23mm f1.4 to pair it with. It was waiting for us when we got into Singapore from the USA, immediately curing us of jet lag. We had none. We pitched Fujifilm the idea of a short commercial promoting the new lens, with the theme Singapore by Night. The pictures would be used for the web, brochures, exhibitions and books from Fuji. The main story would be a photo and video shoot at a Singapore nightclub. Fuji said yes, great, go for it. No questions asked………

Closer | MCEX-11 – MCEX-16 | Othman Kammah

Hell, I even put together an essay about the importance of „Details.“
And for that, my favorite lens has always been the Fujinon 60mm Macro ƒ/2.4. So you bet I was excited when I heard that Fuji was going to release not only one, but two different extension tubes. Enter the MCEX-11 (11mm) and MCEX-16 (16mm).  I’ve now had a chance to play with both of these on the Fuji 18mm, 35mm, and 60mm lenses and though I would share my findings by using my trusty Canon AV-1 as a model. The order, although fairly obvious, is Lens, Lens with MCEX-11, Lens with MCEX-16……..
