THE ‘IMAGE-FEEL’ OF X-TRANS | Pete Bridgwood

The journey to mastery of landscape photography in the deepest sense, is paved with spirituality. It is about finding resonance with nature’s theatre, visual discovery, self-expression; fundamentally, landscape photography is a metaphor for the human condition. I make no apology if this all sounds a little romantic, landscape photography deserves to be romanticised; when done well, it can capture emotion in it’s most primeval guise and preserve it for eternity. There’s an overwhelming preoccupation with gear in much of the photographic press, and for good reasons. If the commercial cogs keep turning and camera clientele consume, then design develops, technology thrives and we all continue to benefit: that’s how consumerism works. For many of us though, this perennial obsession with the latest cameras and accessories can become a little distracting, some may even say ‘irritating’. We would suggest, that it’s not the camera you use, but the photographs you make with it that count, or that the best camera is whichever one you have with you, or that photographer’s make photographs, not cameras, right? …..

Why the Fuji 55-200 is still a good choice | Martin Castein

At the time of writing the 50-140 is just around the corner, and the 90f2 will be here next year some time. The 55-200, still deserves respect. This lens is sharp, light, cheap, fits into the light-weight portable fuji mentality as best a zoom of this nature can. The image stabilization is incredible, tripod-like. I have to really think about what I use this lens for. Generally I use it for shots where people aren’t moving much. Maybe they are walking, but mostly they are stood still. With its great compression you can isolate a bride in a busy room. The 55-200 focus is plenty fast enough to focus on people walking, it wont catch kids running, but I dont think any Fuji lens will. What shocks me is the image stabilization. It is truly incredible. I have been used to the Nikon 70-200 2.8 vr ii. The image stabilization on the Nikon is mild at best. On the Fuji its like its saying “let me take care of that for you” and it just freezes completely. Quite incredible…….

Fujifilm X-Signature Cameras | Matthew Maddock

As an X-Photographer I was invited by Fujifilm UK to have my X-Pro1 re-skinned in their range of X-Signature colours.  As far as I’m aware this is a service only currently available in the UK. I was also keen to get my X100S re-skinned at the same time as a matching pair so cheekily asked if I could have my X100S done as well!  I went back and forth over the colours, the orange really appealed to me right away but I wasn’t really sure if I was ready for an orange camera!  I initially asked for both of them to be done in the red lizard, which I think works well with the black finish of both cameras, but the red wasn’t in stock and available when I went down to Fuji HQ to have them done.  However, now I’ve had them both done I’m so glad it wasn’t!  In the end as you can see, I opted for and orange X-Pro1 and a dark blue lizard X100S…….

Beauty in Cuba | Tjeerd in ‘t Veen

Cuba, an interesting mixture of beauty, problems, friendly people, culture and complex history. There are 11 million people living in Cuba, 2 million are living in Havana. Many cities, such as Cienfuegos, Camagüey and Santiago de Cuba exists of many squares and churches. But compared to Havana, the other cities are small towns. It’s huge, vibrant and easy to stay a week there without getting bored. Cuban people are very friendly and love to talk. Although there are many mixed races, I didn’t notice any racism. Life is tough enough without it. The more you drive west, the richer the country appears. You’ll see nicer cars, better clothes, better food and bigger stores. Go east and you’ll go more rural. You’ll see more donkeys, smaller buildings and also poorer people unfortunately……..

Vietnam 2014 – Hanoi Part 1 | Gambajo

Es ist 22.30 Uhr, ich sitze nach über 30 Stunden auf den Beinen im Hotel und kann es immer noch kaum glauben. Es schien immer in so weiter Ferne, doch die letzten Wochen vergingen sehr schnell, und der Termin für unser Abenteuer rückte immer näher. Heute, bzw gestern war es dann endlich so weit. Wir fuhren mit dem Auto nach Frankfurt, bestiegen dort den Flieger nach Taipei/Taiwan, unseren Zwischenstopp auf dem Weg nach Hanoi/Vietnam. Der ganze Weg verlief komplett entspannt und reibungslos, auch wenn ein Sonnenuntergang um 15 Uhr schon etwas komisch ist. Dennoch war der Flug einfach nur zermürbend. Irgendwann will man einfach nur noch aufstehen und sich etwas bewegen. Der Zwischenstopp war besonders frustrierend, da wir fast an Hanoi vorbei geflogen sind. Taipei ist gute 2000 km weiter im Westen. Aber das war so einfach viel günstiger als ein Direktflug. Über den Wolken schien die Sonne dermaßen stark, dass die Reflektor der Wolken einfach nur strahlend weiß war. Unter den Wolken jedoch stellte sich die Wolkendecke als sehr dicht und grau heraus. Es war zwar nicht kalt, Aber auch nicht so warm, wie erwartet. Außerdem nieselte es ab und an ein wenig. Aber wir sind ja nicht aus Zucker und Kummer in Deutschland gewöhnt………

Fuji XF18-135 F3.5-5.6 R OIS WR lens review (Part 1) | Mike Evans

Opening the box of a new Fujinon lens is an adventure. Every lens has a different set of bells and whistles and, unless you are already familiar with the range you are likely to in for a surprise. From the minimal 27mm pancake to the more complicated 14mm and 23mm lenses with their push-pull switchover from manual to auto focus, these optics demand an open mind. Sometimes, I imagine that the boffins at Fujinon work in hermetically sealed bubbles. Apart from the trademark shiny black-metal surface, their lenses are individualist and, dare I say, often a little eccentric. Leica M lenses, in direct contrast, all have the same basic layout. Everything is in its place, just where the gods intended. Focus ring? Aperture? They are precisely where you left them last time you picked up any M lens……..

A Day In The City | Ugo Cei

Ever since I saw some photos by Alex Lambrechts, I’ve been wanting to do a shoot mixing street and fashion photography and finally the dream has become reality. A few weeks ago, I contacted a friend of a friend who does some modeling and hired her for a couple hours. We went to Milan and I asked her to just walk around or interact with people on the street, pretending to ask directions, sitting in a café, looking at books in a stall, or talking on the phone. In the end I got some nice ones. Even though they are staged, I  think they have a candid street look to them, whereas I wasn’t really able to convey the fashion aspect. I just can’t pretend to be as good as Lambrechts after one day, but I’m reasonably happy with the results and we had lots of fun doing this. An experience to be repeated, for sure. I shot everything with the Fuji X-E2, alternating between the 35mm F1.4 and the 60mm F2.4 lenses. We also shot some posed portraits that aren’t included in the gallery below, but are in this Sticky Album (open the link on your mobile device to add the album to your home screen)……..

Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography |
X-Pro 1 & X100S Review | V. Opoku

After shooting weddings exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and X100S cameras for about 19 months, here are my thoughts and findings on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography. Now this is not a technical review but rather a general conversation with my good friend and fellow Wedding Photographer, Jonathan Ellis which segued into a discussion on my experience shooting weddings with the Fujifilm X-Series cameras. I decided to hit the record button on my phone and here is a transcript of some of the topics we discussed. I don’t even think this is a format for writing reviews, but I hope it works out OK and the topics discussed provides an insight for anybody out there considering the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, be it exclusively or to supplement their existing DSLR systems.

What to expect:

Well my name is Vincent, but commonly known as V ; so whenever V appears before a body of text, that was me talking/responding to Jonathan’s questions. For consistency sake and laziness on my part, Jonathan will be J in this article. Jonathan asks the questions and I respond ; I share my experience on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, my likes and dislikes, the strength and weakness of the system as a whole, the things to improve on and my conclusion…….

12 Months With My Fuji X-Pro1 | Dave Young

I’ve had my Fuji X-Pro1 for just about a year now so thought it would be a good time to review the past 12 months of living with it and jot down the highs and lows of life with the Fuji X-Pro1. Having made a decision to swap over from an all prime DSLR full frame kit, the X-Pro1 was a shoe in as a change. I did consider the XE1 initially, but as soon as I cradled the X-Pro1 in my arms I was sold. I was in search of something smaller, lighter, just as capable for image quality and the Fuji X-Pro1 fitted all of those criteria. Added to that was the customer service that Fuji was fast building a reputation for, continuing to take good care of its past client base through firmware updates for its camera bodies and lenses, long after they’d been superseded. Using the X-Pro1 you don’t just buy into a camera system, you kind of buy into a whole eco-system, care included……
