Fuji X-Pro1

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…….

Fuji 18mm f/2 R review | Techradar

Fujifilm’s acclaimed X series of compact system cameras is supported by an unusually diverse range of wide-angle prime lenses. These include 14mm, 18mm, 23mm and 27mm options, and there’s also a 16mm lens due in 2015. Thanks to the X series cameras’ 1.5x crop factor, this 18mm lens has an effective focal length of 27mm (compared with full-frame cameras) along with a reasonably fast widest aperture of f/2. The retro styling of the lens is a perfect match for cameras like the Fujifilm X-T1. As a ‘pancake’ lens, it’s physically short at 41mm, and comes complete with an aperture ring that’s calibrated in 1/3rd click stops. At one end of the aperture ring’s travel, an ‘A’ setting gives access to program auto-exposure and shutter-priority shooting modes…….

Using the X100T with Elgato Smart Power | David Cleland

My first accessory for the X100T comes in the form of the Elgato Smart Power device. In today’s modern, battery powered living we spend a lot of time looking at battery indicators and trying to conserve power, the Elgato Smart Power is a mobile charging solution, (admittedly with iOS and mobile devices owners in mind) that could offer a whole new set of opportunities for the modern photographer. Out of all the enhancements, upgrades and improvements to the Fujifilm X100T I am particularly excited about the introduction of charging over USB and it made perfect sense to partner the Elgato Smart Power with the X100T. Firstly I should explain that the Elgato Smart Power is a lightweight, slimline battery pack that allows the connection of any device that charges over USB. It’s a powerful mobile charger that when fully charged offers 3 complete charges of my iPhone 5C. The Elgato Smart Power sounds simple but it is actually a sophisticated device with a number of bells and whistles that make it special compared to other mobile charging devices. Firstly it really is travel sized, it’s light and doesn’t feel like your carrying a brick in your bag when out and about. The Elgato Smart Power is designed for general USB charging and although isn’t specifically designed for the X100T I have been successfully charging my camera over the last few days……….

The Nissin i40 Flash for Fuji Review | Colin Nicholls

A bit of clarification; I rarely use flash, in fact I really only use it for dancing shots at weddings, that being said this review is a quick look at what this piece of gear can do, my abilities with flash are limited so please excuse the technical side of things. My current flash guns are the very competent but also the very big Yongnuo 560’s, when this flash came out I ordered one right away as it had some great features but for me the size is a massive bonus, no longer will my little X100 feel like its being pulled forward with the weight of the Yongnuo on top. I always like to keep my reviews short so I’ll try that here, I preordered the Nissin i40 from Jessops and managed to be one of the first to get it in the UK, so this review is kind of a quick overview and a breakdown of how it performs, so here goes. Size on a Fuji: Small, like really really small, crazy small. As you can see from the photos, this flash is super small, it’s crazy that it takes 4 AA batteries, I’m not really sure where the electronics go. On the X100 it’s incredibly well balanced and feels very comfortable to use, the dials are in the perfect place and are very easy to turn whilst feeling solid……….

Cuba Diary #1 | Jorge Ledesma

Time flew, it was a short flight of only 40 minutes from Miami and in a blink of an eye we arrived in Boyero, Cuba (location of the Jose Marti Airport). From here we took a cab to La Habana, Cuba’s capital city, and the adventures began. At first, it was a huge culture shock but then I quickly realized just how special La Habana really is. La Habana is a beautiful city trapped in a time capsule but nonetheless it exudes a unique beauty that in my opinion can only be appreciated with your own eyes. Its for sure a one of the “must see” cities in the world. If you ask me how it looks, I would say its like if Paris and Madrid had a love child which they gave up for adoption and shipped to the Caribbean. We ate, we laughed, we shared, and overall had a wonderful time with my in-laws. I arrived a few days ago and I can’t wait to go back. Here’s a short gallery of what’s to come in the next few days……

The return of the Fujinon XF 18mm F/2 R lens… |
Lars Øivind Authen

For a very long time now I haven’t been using my XF 18mm f/2.0 lens from Fuji. After I bought the execellent Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 that has been my primary wide angle lens. The 18mm isn’t as sharp as the 14mm, and for me 14mm wide was a more interesting angle for my landscape shots. But – some days ago my 14mm broke, something is wrong with the aperture ring. I will send it in for repairs. Today, the sun was shining. The ground was covered with a thin layer of snow, the sky was blue, and a thin haze was lifting from the ground. Help – my XF 14mm is broken… so I picked up my long forgotten XF 18mm. This is the result. I took lots of pictures, so maybe I will post more later in the days to come……
