Fuji X-Pro1

Finding Your Look – Post Processing with Fuji X | Peter Dareth Evans

Lately I’ve been receiving a few enquiries asking how I get my images to look the way they do. This is somewhat flattering, always a nice thing to be asked. The thing is I wasn’t quite sure if it’s a question that should be asked, which is ironic as until recently I always had the ardent desire to ask this of better photographers than I. The trouble is that when it comes to imagery and vision, one size does not necessarily fit all. I’ve found that the approaches I bring to my overseas shots of wooden house Americana look faintly laughable when applied to my natural rainy habitat of slate and stone UK. They just don’t fit each other. There are further differences when I leave the countryside for the inner city, which requires a whole other character of processing. And this is without going into the agonising decision over whether to shoot black and white or colour, and which is appropriate for what. The only way you can really nail the right look for yourself is by endless experimentation until something just clicks and you think to yourself, in a somewhat biblical way, „Ah yes, of course, I know your face. You’re the one I had been searching for all along.“ So what do I look for in making my photograph? ……..

Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR | Test | Patrice Michellon

Before you read further I would like to point out a few things. My report will not contain any detailed technical analysis nor graphics to study. For this I would suggest you visit specialised websites like DP Review. Also you will not find any street photography pictures as I tested the lens for landscapes mainly. I rarely shoot in „documentary“ mode and if I do so my go to camera remains the X100T. Thanks to Fujifilm France I was able to use the lens for an entire week on the French Atlantic coast (Royan). I think both the camera body and the lens tasted a bit of everything: rain, wind, sand and sometimes sun. Therefore the lens‘ WR label (for Weather Resistant) was more than welcome. With both the X-T1 and the XF 16mm I could shoot outdoor everyday without having to worry about the weather conditions. Like all X-Premium lenses, the XF 16mm benefits from a superb all-metal construction and finish. The focusing ring is extremely smooth and street photographers will love the addition of a depth of field scale. If you already use the XF 23mm then you will fill like home with its little brother. Two things immediately apparent are the size and weight of the lens. Both are specific and probably the „raison d’être“ of Fujifilm’s X series but it became even more obvious once I put back the XF 16-55mm zoom on my X-T1. Suddenly the zoom felt big and very heavy…….

Five Days in Havana | Michael Reichmann

I had long wanted to shoot in Havana. As a Canadian I could have gone there any time over the past fifty years or so. Canada has always maintained diplomatic relations with Castro’s Cuba. Air Canada even has daily flights from Toronto, where I live. But somehow I never found the time. In December, 2014 when U.S. President Obama announced the easing of relations with Cuba, I knew that it wouldn’t be long before throngs of American’s would once again be visiting Cuba. The days of the time-encapsulated city of Havana would eventually be no more, and so I was eager to visit, see it and of course photograph it for myself. Immediately following Obama’s announcement I called my friend Nick Devlin, who had also long expressed a desire to shoot in Havana, and said – “It’s time we booked our flights”. It took us a few months to find a common gap in our schedules, but by March, 2015 we were on our way……

Fujinon 27mm, UK Holiday Hero | Michael St. Jean

I am an obsessive idiot. After spending hours considering, and blogging about, the perfectly minimal (yet complete) camera and lens combination to take with me on a family holiday in the UK, I ended up doing something entirely different. In my previous post I wrote about taking to the UK two camera bodies, the Fujifilm X-T1 and X-E1, and two lenses, the Fujinons XF 35mm and 18-55mm, in anticipation of every photographic possibility. I was proud of this perfect travel kit. Before we left for the airport, I slid the XF 27mm f/2.8 pancake prime lens into my bag. „Why not?“ I thought, „It is small enough.“  This impulse decision proved to be a game changer…..

Sexiest camera ALIVE! | Ivan Joshua Loh

Its been almost 2 years since I gotten my first Fuji X series system. Its a birthday gift from my loving wife. Its the Xpro1 plus 2 lenses. XF35mm F1.4 and XF 14mm F2.8. Boy am I lucky! And boy am I lucky to have a wife! I have always think the Xpro1 looks gougeous. But never though of owning one as the price is not that cheap to start with. Until I had lunch with my good pal and fellow photographer; Joel Lim. He been using the Xpro1 for couple of months already and when I first held it; my first thought was its rather big and AF is not quick enough. Big because I was comparing it with a compact camera and AF is not quick because I was comparing with my DSLR( 1DX ). What a silly comparison. On the good side; I love the beautiful crafted dials. oozing with such sex appeal. The aperture rings, reminds me of a SLR from the old film days. An APS-C size Fuji X-trans sensor for capturing great details. The built quality that is second to none and after awhile I think its not that big after all. Especially when one compare with a DLSR…….

Do Fuji make a bad lens? | Dave Young

Whether it’s a kit zoom lens or a prime lens, the quality of each release appears to be incremental with each lens seemingly getting better with reference to IQ and sharpness. Having shot with both zooms and primes over a number of years, I’m very much a prime lens shooter. I prefer the simplicity a prime lens option gives, and the inherent increased quality you get from shooting prime. However, this line does appear to be getting more blurred with the release of Fuji’s 16-55mm & 50-140mm f/2.8 fixed aperture zooms. I’ve not had the pleasure of shooting with either as yet, but there’s a healthy school of thought to suggest simply these two lenses could remove the need for any other prime lens such is their outstanding quality. When he opportunity presents itself to try them I’ll certainly have something to say about them that’s for sure – so if you have them and want to lend them to me, don’t be shy! ………

Zoom or Prime lenses for portraits with Fuji X? | Damien Lovegrove

This is my real world comparison between the Fujifilm XF16-55mm zoom with the XF16mm f/1.4, XF23mm f/1.4, XF35mm f/1.4 and the XF56mm f/1.2 prime lenses. I often hear statements like prime lenses are better than zoom lenses. Is that so? Let’s find out… Size matters when it comes to lenses. The larger lenses are generally easier to operate especially if you are controlling the aperture, zoom and focus. The 16-55mm lens feels just the right size and the zoom function is super smooth too. Take away the need to zoom and the size of the fast prime lenses seems right too. If you really want compactness in your lens system you can opt for the pancake primes to cover the wide end. These are the 18mm, and 27mm. Pair these up with the 35mm and 60mm and you have a sub f/2.8 prime set up. These lenses offer stellar optics but have traded a fast maximum aperture for size and weight. The apertures are still larger than the zoom so these can be a real choice if size really does matter……

Zion – Landscape Photography | Mac Sokulski

This little day trip, happened over a year ago, and the photos where sitting on my hard drive collecting digital dust.  There are many others, that might see the light of day, or may not.  Procrastination and the fact that I wasn’t overly happy with the images played into the fact why I waited so long.  Personally I do not like changing my landscape photos, apart from small details and colors.  I never been a fan of replacing skies either.  First I find the task daunting, and second I like to leave some semblance of realism in my images.  If there are no clouds, then there are no clouds.  I have nothing against people who do that, nothing at all… I’m just lazy and frankly couldn’t be bothered. Being an opportunistic photographer, I don’t have the luxury of time, and spending a few days at a location, waiting for mother nature to smile.  I take what I’m given :)  Some say, that I’m wasting my time and pixels, but I disagree……..

First Look at the Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens | Dan Bailey

In all my years with SLR and DSLR cameras, I never owed a traditional 35mm lens. Despite its legendary status with street photographers and photojournalists, that focal length never quite felt right for me. It was either too wide, or not quite wide enough. I always went for the classic “Nifty Fifty,” 50mm f/1.4 which was my first lens, and more recently the lighter weight 50mm f/1.8. If I wanted wide, I went for my 24mm /2.8. Originally created for press photography, the standard 35mm f/1.4 is one of the fastest wide angle primes you can buy. Offering great versatility, they can be used for just about anything- landscapes, portraits, still ice, indoors, street, product, and they even shoot relatively close up. (On a crop sensor APC-S or DX camera, you need a 23mm lens to get that classic 35mm view angle.) Fuji’s offering in this range is the XF 23mm f/1.4 R lens. I already have that focal length covered with my 18-55 and my 18-135. However, I’m a sucker for fast primes, and besides, my friend Josh gives it very high praise as his favorite Fuji lens. So, with some camera store credit to burn after trading in all of my DLSR gear, I decided to plunk down and give the Fuji 23 a try………

Detroit WWIM Recap & First Impression of the Fuji XF 14mm | Rivals

During Detroit’s Worldwide InstaMeet (WWIM) I had the opportunity to meet fellow X-Photographer Bryan Minear, he was cool and all, but this post isn’t about him haha, It’s about this beautiful piece of glass he shared with me. The Fujifilm XF 14mm. Now typically I’m not a wide shooter, the XF 18 I own is about as wide as I need any lens, and honestly a XF 23 would replace that if it wasn’t for the huge price difference, but when I had to take this baby out on the streets for a day I figured why not. Now I’m lucky enough to live in Downtown Detroit, where we have a lot of high rise buildings, old textures and the riverwalk… Unfortunately I didn’t get pictures of any of this, but I hope the ones below, as well as the text is helpful in deciding if this lens is for you or not……
