Fujifilm announces development of EF-X500 flash | DPReview

Among all of its new cameras announcements, Fujifilm also made public the development of a new external flash. The EF-X500 is a high-end, weather-sealed model with a guide number of 50m at ISO 100, the ability to control up to three sets of TTL off-camera strobes, and a high-speed sync mode that supports the X-Pro2’s maximum 1/8000 sec shutter speed. The zoom head range is 24-105mm equiv., and can go as wide as 20mm with the wide panel pulled into place. It has a large, backlit display on its back side along with a control dial for easy setting adjustment. As you’d expect, the flash can tilt and rotate – 10° down, 90° up, 135° left and 180° right. It uses four AA batteries and also supports Fujifilm’s EF-BP1 external battery pack. The EF-X500 is expected to ship in May at a price yet to be determined…….

Fuji 10-24mm f/4 review: The world is epic | INSPIRED EYE

To first start the review, I must say something, I’m probably positively biased because I am a big fan of wide angles. Besides landscape uses I find that most tend to shy away from ultra wides, and it’s understandable…..super wides are the kind of lenses that needs a bit of wrestling with. But that’s why I like them so much, I think it’s this focal length ranges biggest asset: it forces the user to be creative, to work the scene. This is a large lens, DSLR size territory. It’s without a doubt a beautiful piece of glass that is on the not too heavy side and just scream premium. It fits the camera nicely but you can forget about the portability, and the weight will probably prevent you from doing too much hand gymnastics like twisting and turning for odd angles in the streets. Better have a flip screen for this one……

King of Zooms. XF100-400mm | Ivan Joshua Loh

When it comes to a superzoom like the new XF100-400mm lens; I guess the ‘Birding” community will flapping in excitment. It may be the biggest, meanest, heaviest, bad ass lens from Fujifilm XF line up but let me humbly put things into perspective. 100-400mm in 35mm equivalent will be 150-600mm lens. Naturally I will add the XF1.4 Teleconverter and that will extend the zoom lens into 210-840mm bass ass zoom lens! Even at F6.3-8 the Phase detection AF shooting remain possible, even at F8……

XF 100-400 f 4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Yes Virginia…….
There is a Santa Claus! | Bill Fortney

INTRODUCTION:  O.K. so he either came a little late or really early!  So, before I gush like a teenager, and sadly I’m going to,  let’s go over the physical information on the new Fuji XF 100-400 f 4.5 – 5.6 R LM OIS WR .  Above is the lens mounted on a  tripod with the X-T1 Graphite body.  The lens has 21 elements in 14 groups and they include; 6 extra low dispersion elements, and 1 super low dispersion elements.  The 100-400 features 9 rounded aperture blades.  The first great news is that the new lens takes 77mm filters, far smaller than we had guessed it would, most rumor sites were thinking around 82mm! This means polarizers and close up diopters, (like the Canon 500D work great!),  more on that later!  Below is the 100-400 with the lens hood attached, which bayonets on very positively and has a cut out for adjusting a polarizer, with a handy sliding door, much better than the removable, and easy to misplace, one for the 50-140!………

The high performance optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups includes five ED lenses and one Super ED lens to help reduce chromatic aberration that often occurs in telephoto lenses.

Linear motor for fast autofocusing makes it perfect for shooting fast-moving subjects including aircraft and motorsports. The lens is also both weather and dust resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C, so it is suitable for use in a wide range of outdoor shooting conditions.

Putting the Fujinon XF50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR to the test |
Rebecca Frogley

Fujifilm’s Fujinon XF50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR — a zoom designed for Fujifilm’s X-series lenses — offers the most frequently used telephoto focal lengths, with some serious optics to boot. Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal-length range of 76–213mm (when used in conjunction with the X series’ 1.52x crop factor), and with a minimum one-metre focusing distance across the entire zoom range, it’s ideal for not only capturing fast-moving and distant subjects in the great outdoors, but also for shooting portraits. So, with that in mind, I put the XF50–140mm to the test in the studio with some rather unconventional subjects. When I first handled the lens, we were made aware of its solidity — weighty and reassuring — which is something that I’ve come to expect from the majority of the higher-end Fujifilm lenses. While it’s certainly not lightweight, sitting at just under a kilo, it balances quite comfortably on the X-T1 with a battery grip attached — and personally, I’ve never had a problem with carrying a little more glass……..

The Q menu | Julie Edwards

I was talking to a colleague the other day and he seemed unaware that the Q-menu was customisable. I offered to write a short blog on it (based upon the X-T1, the X-Pro-1 is very similar). Not sure what I’m talking about?  What is the Q-menu? Basically the Q button on the rear of the camera (Fuji X-T1  X-Pro1) provides fast access to a number of settings arranged in a grid as below. This grid is called the Q-menu. Here is my current Q-menu (although it is always in a state of flux). I don’t use all of the functions and my aim was to have the items I need to change often quickly accessible…….

An Introduction to Camera Color Profiles in Your Editing Workflow |
Chris Gampat

Though they’re a staple to the more advanced photo editors among us, Camera Profiles are a little known about feature that many folks don’t know about, understand or use. If you’ve ever looked at your camera’s LCD screen, shot in RAW, and wanted your RAW image to look exactly like the JPEG then you’ve probably also spent a long time trying to match them up perfectly only to get disappointed. It’s tough, but it’s also honestly useless to try it when the camera manufacturer often gives you exactly what you need if you use Adobe Lightroom. In Adobe Lightroom’s Develop panel, you simply go down to the Process area near the bottom, click on profile and scroll through. ……..

Sibling Rivalry: The Underestimated XC 50-230mm |
Rob Zeigler

There are many reviews on the internet about Fuji’s well known XF zooms: the 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 and the 50-140mm f/2.8. I’ve even posted a recent review of the red-badged professional grade XF 50-140mm myself and noted its amazing quality, but you’d be hard pressed to find as much information about a third sibling in Fuji’s lineup: the XC 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7. Labeled as a cheaper consumer product, this lens is often overlooked in favor of its two older brothers. Like most younger brothers who strive to compete with their older brothers, the XC 50-230mm packs a surprising combination of size, weight and immense reach that not even the 50-140mm can match……..
