Fuji X-Pro1

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…..

REVIEW: First Impressions of the Nissin i40 Flashgun
for the Fuji X-Series | Jeff Carter

Last week I received the new Nissin i40 flash for the Fujifilm X-Series cameras from Cambrian Photography, a superb customer focused independent photographic retailer located in Colwyn Bay, North Wales. One of the criticisms of the X-Series has been the lack of a credible flashgun for the system.  While Fujifilm have produced three flashguns (the EF-42, EF-20 and EF-X20), these have been lacking in the flexibility that professional and enthusiast photographers have been demanding. I bought the EF-20 for my X100 in early 2013 and while this is a great little flash, it doesn’t allow me to get very creative due to it’s limited controls. Fujifilm have hinted that a new flash is on the way in 2015 but in the meantime Nissin have stepped up to the plate and delivered a Fujifilm compatible version of its award winning i40…..

Berlin | Gabor Nagy

Few weeks ago we spent a couple of days in Berlin and it happened to be the weekend when Germany celebrated the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. I only found out about our trip a day before we travelled, it was a surprise from my wife Anita. So off we went with our little daughter Hanna to discover what Berlin has to offer on that amazing weekend. Since I completely moved to mirrorless system, I don’t really have trouble with the weight of my gear. I always have my X100s with me and this time I packed the Fuji X-T1 with the 35mm lens attached to it and of course loads of spare batteries. Berlin is a fantastic city and it’s not really hard to fall in love with it. It has amazing culture, rich history, sleek architecture, great places to eat and even better cafes but it also has a gritty side with plenty of street arts and graffitis which I found more fascinating. Combine my interest in street photography and Anita’s knowledge in speciality coffee, Berlin managed to offer a lot to both of us and Hanna loved it too……

Using RAW or SOOC jpegs with Fuji X? – A discussion |
Jayson Oertel

I’ve been shooting exclusively with Fuji for almost 2 years now, and I am extremely impressed with the IQ that these guys kick out.  In addition, I’ve noticed that my workflow and post processing efficiency has increased.  Perhaps this can be attributed to my level of skill increasing, but nonetheless, my Fuji nails the shot every time (technically speaking).  But something happened on Sunday night…you know, one of those moments where you get smacked upside the head because something was right in front of your face and you missed it. The city where I live has a yearly Christmas festival, where everyone turns out.  There’s food, music, arts, crafts, and general holiday cheer.  Kids run around carelessly, excited to see Santa.  Adults all know each other, as it’s a small community, and shoot the shit.  I took my Fuji X-T1 with my XF35mm lens, and that’s it.  For a change, instead of just capturing RAW, I decided to capture in both JPEG (F) + RAW.  I also played around with a B&W simulation (Monochrome + G filter) since I was planning on shooting some portraits and wanted to try something different.  I walked around, framed a few shots, pressed the shutter, and WOW…….
