Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 WR Review | FUJI LOVE

I spent the last weekend with the newest available lens on Fujifilm’s X mount lens roadmap: the long-awaited wide angle XF 16mm f/1.4 WR. Thanks to Fujifilm Switzerland I was able to walk around with a sample copy of this new lens mounted on my X-T1. Even though 16mm will be considered a wide angle lens, it is effectively a 24mm lens, when mounted on an APS-C sensor X body. It will be for sure an attractive option for landscape shooters, but I decided to give it a go on the street. Let’s have a look at how it performed. First things first: when I review a piece of equipment (a lens, a camera, a tripod), I really, honestly don’t care so much about all the technical specifications. Naturally, I know what I am using, I know which aperture I need and what angle of view the lens is giving me. But I don’t analyse distortion and aberration differences at various apertures and I don’t zoom my photographs 200% to see if the edge of the wall or the eyebrows are tack sharp. If you are expecting this kind of review, please look for it somewhere else. What counts for me is what character of a photograph this particular lens is giving me and how easy and intuitive it is to use…….

A visit to Minninglow | Nick Lukey

Last week I pulled the trigger on a new lens, one that I swore i wasn’t going to purchase. The Fuji 10-24mm arrived a few days ago, but due to other commitment,s and the weather I had not had a chance to shoot outdoors with it much. This lens will replace the legendary 14mm, one lens I thought i would never change. So what was it like out in the field?  Quite simply it’s outstanding. So with the promise of some spring sunshine, I took off from the gallery a little early and headed of to Minninglow near Parwich. It’s been a year since I last visited the place, and I am always happy to be back for a wander round the Bronze age site. It’s a great place to spend an hour or two, very easy access from the Tissington trail. So how does the 10-24mm compare to my much loved 14mm. Well I can say without a doubt that it seems to me to be pretty equal, maybe the 14mm edges it in micro contrast just. The 14mm has the aperture ring, and it’s a shame that its not present on the ultra wide. However the differences in extra viewing real estate is the real issue for me…….

Fuji X-T1 captures the Northern Lights in Iceland | Martin Spence

On a recent trip to Reykjavik, Iceland we were fortunate to witness the Northern Lights in full display. I say fortunate as they are also one of the most elusive and unpredictable attractions Iceland has. Before our trip we checked the Icelandic weather and forecast site to plan our itinerary. On the Saturday we knew there was supposed to be a clear sky and Aurora activity along the South Coast so decided to travel down to the waterfalls of Skogarfoss and Seljalandsfoss, visiting Vik the most southerly town. Our hope was then to catch the Northern Lights on our journey back to Reykjavik that evening. We left Vik about 1845, visiting the waterfalls again in the hope of getting some pictures without the myriads of tourists and continually looking for green in the sky. As we approached Selfoss we started to see a few faint streaks in the sky and shortly after followed the car in front and pulled over to witness the amazing display.  Having seen people capture the Northern Lights in Northern Ireland which are really only visible via a camera, it was amazing to actually see these scenes with the naked eye…….

Chefchaouen – The Blue Pearl | V. Opoku

Somethings are forever, they stay with us. The few days I spent in Chefchaouen (pronounced Shafshawan) during the summer of 2014 is one of those. Located in Northwest Morocco. This beautiful town sits beneath the raw peaks of the Rif mountains and has an absolutely stunning Medina where almost everything in the is painted in various shades of blue, from the walls, to doors & floors. The likes of Marrakesh and Fez seems to get the nod ahead of other smaller towns by people visiting Morocco. However I am more of a traveller than a tourist and that means I often venture along the path less travelled or do activities that most people don’t do. I travel to explore and experience different cultures. After spending 5 days in Southern Spain (Seville and Sanlucar de Barrameda) visiting a good friend of mine Fran, I realised how close I was to Morocco so I thought why not? “I am going to Morocco tomorrow” I informed him. Armed with just a few Spanish phrases, I set off around 7 am on a bus from Sanlucar de Berrameda to Jerez. From Jerez, it was a train ride to San Fernando then a short taxi ride to the bus stop where I then caught another bus all the way down to Tarifa. Hours passed and I had finally completed the first leg of the trip; with just “Que autobus de Tarifa” and a  few nods, I had managed to make it to where I needed be…..

Nikon to Fujifilm X | One Year After the Switch | Rick Lewis

This Blog post may surprise a few of my friends and colleagues, as I have not made a big deal of switching to a completely new, (for me), camera system.  I had been a Nikon shooter since a teenager in 1967.  I started with a Nikkormat FS in 1967.  It didn’t have a light meter but it was all I could afford at 15 years of age.  Over the years I acquired a Nikkormat FTn, Nikkormat EL, Nikon F2 Photomic, Nikon D70, Nikon D200, Nikon D3, D3s, and finally the D4. During the spring and summer of 2013 I began an email conversation with a very well known commercial photographer and teacher, Will Crockett.  I read or watched a Blog post of his describing the changes he saw coming in photography.  They centered around mirrorless cameras and their ability to capture stills and video.  I was intrigued by his insights so I emailed him.  We corresponded and discussed the pros and cons of Olympus, Panasonic, and Fujifilm cameras.  I told him I was much more interested in still photography and didn’t really care about video.  He recommended I look into Fuji cameras.  He then offered to loan me one of his Fujifilm X-Pro1’s along with the “kit lens”, (18-55mm f2.8-f4, OIS) and the 60mm f2.4 macro……

Choosing between the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6,
and 18-55mm f/2.8-4 | Tom Grill

In my latest hands-on review of the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8 I mentioned that with this lens Fuji expands its lens system with a redundancy that covers more that one solution to the same optical coverage. For the consumer, this means more choice within the various focal length categories allowing photographers to tailor their lens choices to the specific way they use their equipment. A serious landscape photographer has very different equipment needs than a still life or lifestyle photographer, just as a photographer using the equipment casually has a different criteria than a pro who relies on it to make a living. I have received a number of emails from readers asking which of the three lenses I would recommend based upon specific criteria. So I decided to dedicate a blog post to the topic, and here it is. Here is one of the questions I received recently:

“I was thinking of buying the Fuji 18-135 as a convenient lens to used round the salt mashes, mudflats and coastal areas where I live. However the 16-55 seems to be having rave reviews, including your just published  review……..

PRIME TIME in NEW YORK with the FUJIFILM XF 23mm 1.4 | Björn Moerman

Whenever I go to the Big Apple, I try to do at least a few hours of hardcore street-photography, preferably shooting Black and White with a prime lens. For you non-photographers out there, a prime lens is a lens with a fixed focal lens; the opposite of a zoom. As an example, your iPhone or Android phones all have prime lenses. Last week, I got a Fujinon XF 23mm f1.4 lens on loan from Fujifilm Middle East, which I took to New York. I do own the 27mm pancake lens (right in the image above), but have been hesitating to purchase the 27mm (left in image above) for a while. What is below, is not going to be a full on review, but rather a practical look on how I used the lens for my street photography in New York city. So why a 23mm prime? Depending on who you speak to, scientists claim that humans see around a 24 to 35mm focal length. Given I shot the lens on a 1.5 cropped sensor, i.e. Fujifilm X-T1; the 23mm becomes a 35mm full frame equivalent…….

Iridient Developer Fujifilm X-Trans Presets | Wim Arys

Brian Griffith from Iridient Developer just released a preset pack that attempts to reproduce the Fujifilm in-camera film styles. These include all highly regarded Standard/Provia, Vivid/Velvia, Soft/Astia, ProNegStd, ProNegHi, Classic Chrome, Monochrome, Monochrome+G, Monochrome+Ye, Monochrome+R and Sepia film emulations. You’ll also find the “neutral” styles which are not intended to mimic any of the in-camera looks but should give a very good colorimetric color match to standard color reference charts such as the ColorCheckerSG and IT8. These presets were produced without any assistance from Fujifilm wand may not give absolutely identical results to the in-camera processing. These presets are intended for use with the 16MP APS-C sensor models and have not been tested with the compact 12MP X-Trans models like the X30 or XQ2. They will not provide a good color match on compact X-Trans models due to the different sensor hardware being used.

16-55mm f/2.8 vs. 18-55mm f/2.8-4 vs. 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 | Fuji vs. Fuji

The pro standard zoom has long been a staple in almost every pro photographer’s bag. They are intended to be workhorses that can take anything we can throw at them. Low light, inclement weather, fast-moving subjects, you name it. At long last, Fuji’s standard f/2.8 zoom is available, which, along with the 50-140mm f/2.8 fills the two biggest gaps in their lens lineup. We could achieve these focal lengths before, but never with a constant aperture, and outside of 18mm, never at a maximum aperture of f/2.8. This piece will explore in-depth what you get for your extra money, aside from more size and weight…….

18-135mm vs. 50-140mm vs. 55-200mm | Fuji vs. Fuji

With the advent of the 50-140mm f/2.8, Fuji X-Series owners now have 3 ways of reaching beyond 200mm in 35mm equivalence. The first two releases—Fuji’s FUJINON XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS and FUJINON XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS WR—are both geared more towards the casual shooter. Fuji’s latest telephoto zoom offering—complete with premium-looking Red XF Zoom Badge—is the 50-140mm f/2.8, and has a significantly more “pro” feel to it. As we’ll see, this is a common theme for these three lenses, and should serve as an easy way for readers to decide which lens is best for them……
