Fuji HSS flash firmware update | Wim Arys

As you can read in my post here, you can trick the Nissin i40 into using the built-in HSS functionality with the Fuj X-T1, X-E2 and X-Pro1. This Fuji HSS flash hack allows the use of HSS in manual mode, unfortunately without through-the-lens light metering. A reader informed me that this ‘trick’ is also the official way of engaging high-speed flash sync in the Nissin i40 for micro-four-thirds version (with TTL), so it seems to be less of a hack, and more of a future proof built-in functionality. Good news is that a Nissin representative told me that they are (quote) “Waiting for the HSS firmware update to be released by Fujifilm”. Which Fuji X cameras will receive such an update is currently not known, but it is certain that Fuji hss flash sync with TTL metering will come in the nearby future and that the i40 will be compatible!……

CP+ 2015 – Day one | Fujifilm

Japan’s annual photography convention sees all of the big players in the photography market under the huge roof of the Pacifico Convention Centre in Yokohama, just south of Tokyo. Obviously the reason I’m here is because Fujifilm have once again put on an amazing stand, showing off all aspects of the business. In 2014, we took a bit of a gamble by placing four European photographers on a stage and asked them to tell the Japanese public what they did. The talks were in English and then translated into Japanese by the lovely Hiroe Kubuki from Fujifilm Tokyo. This meant that the photographers were not able to talk as freely and as flowingly as they would normally like and we were not sure how the crowds at CP+, which is a very Japanese show, would take to this. It turns out they took to it incredibly well. Large crowds, lots of questions at the end, laughs at the jokes throughout, and rapturous applause at the end helped us see that the gamble paid off. Fast forward twelve months and we’ve done it again…….

Bague d’allonge macro Fujifilm MCEX-11 | K-pture

Je ne suis pas friand de la photo macro, bien que je l’apprécie. La macro demande du temps et beaucoup de patience. Elle et moi ne faisons généralement pas bon ménage. Posséder un objectif macro n’est pas obligatoire pour du reportage (mariage, corporate, etc.), mais c’est parfois nécessaire pour immortaliser certains détails qui font partie intégrante de l’endroit et de la journée. J’aime les détails et j’aime rendre hommage aux personnes qui ont parfois passé plusieurs heures à les peaufiner et qu’au final peu de gens verront. Alors, dois-je acheter un objectif macro pour l’utiliser quelques fois par an ? L’investissement n’est pas énorme (on se comprend). À l’heure actuelle, Fujifilm ne propose qu’un objectif macro : le Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R. Il se trouve aux alentours de 530 €. Un second objectif macro viendra s’ajouter à la liste en 2016 : le Fujinon 120mm f/2.8 R. Tentant, mais je n’ai pas envie d’attendre plus d’un an et je n’ai aucune idée du prix. Une chose est sûre, il coûtera plus de 530 €. Bref, je passe mon tour……

Kathmandu – 2 Days in Nepal | Ross Kennedy

A brief pit-stop in Kathmandu was a little bonus. A stepping-stone on my way home from Bhutan, the Nepalese capital is famously exotic with layer upon layer of history to explore…and a fascinating array of characters to photograph. After two weeks among the pine-clad, silent valleys of the Dragon Kingdom, where the land bears very few signs of human occupation, touching down in the lung-burning cacophony of Kathmandu’s traffic nightmare was one of those cultural somersaults that makes travel so compelling. Leisurely people-watching in the Indian sub-continent is a favourite occupation of mine but with only two days to explore the city, it was a case of hitting the highlights on the run with little time to sit back and enjoy the show. Kathmandu has been a backpackers’ favourite for more than 40 years – the final destination on the 60’s hippy trail to the jumping off point for Everest summit attempts. Centre of operations is Durbar Square, a jumble of medieval temples, multi-tiered pagodas and imposing colonial-era buildings. The square pulsates with life – on the day I visited, there was a vibrant ceremony taking place involving a parade of coloured flags, thumping music and lots of dancing…..

Fuji’s new extension tubes: To infinity and beyond | Bill Palmer

Back in November of last year you may remember reading my views on the macro options then available for Fuji X-users.  The MCEX-11 and MCEX-16 had just been announced and I was quite excited at the prospect; indeed I wrote to Santa in the hope of waking up on Christmas morning with something tubular in my stocking.  Sadly either Santa didn’t get my note in time or I was on the Naughty List, because I had to wait until mid-January before I found an MCEX-16 in stock somewhere friendly enough to give me a small but perfectly formed discount. To briefly recap, my macro solution up to this point has been the Olympus OM 50mm f3.5 Macro lens plus some matching auto-extension tubes.  I covered the advantages and disadvantages of this setup in the previous article so I won’t repeat them here.  Let’s focus instead on the benefits of the MCEX solution………

Review: Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R | Tomasz Trzebiatowski

It’s time for my first review. Well, let me say it upfront: I am not a technology freak and – that’s for sure – I am not a pixel-peeper. For me a piece of equipment simply is (or is not) an extension of my photographic eye. It either helps me or does not help me with expressing and presenting my artistic vision. I simply like it or not. After starting to use the Fuji X-T1 mirrorless camera a couple of weeks ago, I quickly had a look at the Fuji offering of lenses. After doing my research and listening to the opinions of those on the net, who I respect, I realised that there is quite an amazing line-up of top quality Fujinon lenses out there. What’s even better – there are some great prime lenses available. Trying to build up a strong, but compact set of primes, which would allow me to cover various photographic opportunities, I started my Fujinon collection with two of their primes: the XF 23mm f/1.4 and the XF 56mm f/1.2. The second one is the hero of today’s review……

South Pacific Sojourn – To Zoom or Not To Zoom | Patrick Leong

This is the first part of a two-part article about photography on a thirty day cruise, & related photo gear considerations as well as image capture experiences. Not quite two months ago, while checking email on my computer, I received an incredible offer from our travel agent to take a last minute cruise from San Diego to Hawaii & then to seven islands in French Polynesia.  Places with far away names like Bora Bora, Raiatea, Tahiti, Moorea, Rangiroa & Nuku Hiva conjured up images for me that are a photographer’s dream come true.  So my wife & I jumped at this opportunity.  This led to my next question of whether to take the most basic photo gear or a more capable but also more complex setup.  In my case, the former would be my Fuji X-E2 with its outstanding XF18-55mm zoom lens; the latter would be a selection of some or all of my prime lenses for this camera, with or without the zoom.  For me this is the XF-14mm, the XF-35mm, a Zeiss Planar 50mm, & finally a Leica Tele-Elmarit 90mm.  I provided a prior write up on this blog of my experiences in adapting these last two Leica M mount lenses to my Fuji X-E2 using the M adapter made by Fuji (see my two-part article on this blog titled “A Tale Of Two Lenses”)……..

Fuji X! The Light Weight Really Matters! | Mohamed Hakem

I’ve written before on how Fuji helped me unhinge new passion in the street photography but now I’m back with a new experience. After the switched from DSLR (Nikon D800) to Mirrorless (Fuji X-T1). I wrote before on how this switch helped me discover new genres in photography as street and people. But what I couldn’t imagine is that the mirrorless could outperform the DSLRs in landscape also! I am a landscape photographer and I’ve been a loyal Nikon user all my life. Coming from a monster in the shape of a camera (D800) made me see all other cameras as toys. Huge dynamic range and massive pixels. When I first got into the Fuji’s I was never expecting that it will one day be my main camera and replace the D800, and it did!….

Fujifilm Completes the F2.8 Lineup! 16-55mm F2.8 WR Lens Review |
Sven Schroeter

We got lucky, for the past seven days we have had the new 16-55mm lens at our disposal (kindly provided for test by the NZ Fujifilm team). With the addition of the 16-55mm lens, the F2.8 lens lineup is now complete and offers an equivalent focal range from 24mm through to 200mm when paired with the already available 50-140mm zoom. The new 16-55mm F2.8 (fixed aperture) weather sealed lens performs on par with the 50-140mm, a match made in heaven for those in search of versatility. Unfortunately we got the lens at pretty short notice and did not have the time to throw together a proper shoot to test each and every aspect of the the lens. So to make the most of the last few weeks of summer and accompanying stelar weather, we once again left the sky scrapers behind in search of tranquility with camera in hand…..
