Fuji X-Pro1

First Impression: Fuji XF 18mm | Rivals

Okay so the “First Impression” title may be a reach, I say this because the Fuji XF 18mm was one of the first lenses to ever bless my body (that sounds weird). When I purchased it several months ago I was debating between a Ricoh GR or X-T1 with this lens as my street photography kit, ultimately I ended up with X-T1, but the Fuji X100T has taken over as my go to street kit, and ever since then the XF 18mm f/2 rarely sees the light of day. The lens honestly has a bit of an odd spot in my kit, I normally shoot strictly with the X100T and the 56 f/1.2 for the majority of my work, the 35/85 full frame eqv focal length is all I really need to get any job done. In rare cases where I need to go wide, I step back, but for whatever reason I can’t let this lens go…….

The Fuji XT-1 and XC 50-230 meet Australian Wildlife |
Caveira Photography

Most of us are guilty of spending our dollars on getting that ‘perfect lens’ or piece of gear that will ‘make my photos so much better’. It’s bred into us via the internet and marketing and I am certainly guilty of such things considering photography isn’t my bread and butter, yet I own a pretty nice but simple Canon rig, and my Fuji rig is growing steadily. After recently adding more Fuji gear to my arsenal (XT-1 & XF56 1.2) I decided to check out a ‘cheap’ Fuji zoom lens for testing my skills in areas I’ve not worked much in before – wildlife photography. For $240 AUD (~$190 USD) the XC 50-230mm f4.5-6.7 is a relatively compact and very quiet zoom lens covering a 76-350mm focal length and it also has Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). As I’ve said to my best mate before and fellow camera and Transformer’s enthusiast, ‘I’m just like Optimus in that I’m a Prime kinda guy’, so this is the first zoom lens I’ve ever purchased, which opens up a lot of opportunities and a different way of shooting compared to what I’m used to. Regardless, I had a lot of fun with it and was pleasantly impressed with the results……

Fuji XF 55-200mm lens review | Mark Richards

The Fuji XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 zoom lens is a bit of a monster compared to other XF lenses – weighing in at 580gm excluding the hood it is no lightweight and is a bulky addition to your X system body. It is, however, quite compact when compared to a zoom lens from a DSLR. In use I have found it to be a remarkable lens capable of producing crisp and clear images across the full zoom range. It is now one of my essential lenses and if I could only have two lenses for the X-T1 this would probably be one of them. The performance of the lens depends to a large extent which body you have it attached to. When used with the X-Pro1 the focus was prone to hunting and was pretty slow and imprecise. It could still produce good images but was weak when trying to capture movement or action. However when married with the X-T1 the performance is totally different – it focusses quickly and accurately with minimal hunting and overall is an excellent lens for catching the action….

On the Street with a Fuji XT1 and the XF35mm F1.4 | Mike Ricci

I took to the streets of downtown Denver armed with my Fuji Xt1 and the XF35mm F1.4 lens. I find this to be the perfect street setup for me, nice and light with superb image quality. While the XF35mm is not the fastest lens to focus the image quality is second to none and on the XT1 focus speed is more than adiquite…….

Review [Part Two] – Fujinon XF 50-140 mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR
[Image Quality] | Jonas Jacobsson

Here we go, part two of my review of the Fujinon XF 50-140 mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR lens from Fujifilm. Like I mentioned in the previous part this one will focus on the image quality of this tele zoom lens, especially when looking at portraiture. A couple of size comparisons and product images will also find its way. This is, as usual, a real world type of review meaning the images are from everyday usage, not from any optimized studio setup, and all of my thoughts are purely my own. I am not at all sponsored by Fuji in any way, should you wonder about that. Okay, so first off, how does it feel and how does it look. This is by a pretty large margin the biggest and heaviest of the current Fujinon lenses out there. Weighing in at just under a kilo (995 g) it has quite a hefty feeling to it, something that will be noticeable for any mirrorless shooter out there. Balancing on the Fujifilm X-T1 is fine, but I really recommend to use the vertical battery grip when using it for an extended period of time. The lenshood is large, like for most lenses of this kind, so nothing spectacular about that but it will for sure add almost 50% extra length to the total package which is something that should be kept in mind…….

Enhance! Superresolution Tutorial in Adobe Photoshop |
Ian Norman

In this tutorial Ian Norman shows us how to enhance the resolution of a camera sensor with a technique called superresolution. With this technique, it’s possible to mimic the sensor-shift high-resolution mode found on cameras like the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II to squeeze more megapixels out of the sensor. In his example, he increases the resolution of a 24 megapixel photo to more than 90 megapixels. See the full written tutorial here …..
 
 
NEW! Additional stuff: In this short clip, Ian Norman shows two different methods for averaging layers in Photoshop.

Fujifilm XM-FL 24mm f/8 First Impressions Review | Brendan Nystedt

While jaded enthusiasts might roll their eyes at them, we love the weird and wild world of toy lenses. The cheaper, the better. So, when Fujifilm announced its new XM-FL 24mm f/8 filter lens (MSRP ¥12,582—or about $105) for the Japanese market, the company had our attention immediately. Featuring three selectable filters, this tiny lens could easily be your body cap, with the added bonus of being able to help you take ridiculously fun photos. Given the nature of this tiny little lens, we can’t fault it for its cheap-feeling plastic body. While this little guy is made in Japan, it has a super simple construction with little flare. We’re probably lucky that it even comes in two colors—silver and black…….

The end of printing | Don Craig

2015 sees the end of printing at the Queen’s Printer.Established in 1859, the Queen’s Printer has served the province of British Columbia as the legislative printer for over 150 years. As of this year, the Queen’s Printer will no longer print in-house. The press room will be empty. I have worked as a designer for the provincial government of British Columbia since 2006. In that time, I have lost count of the jobs that have been printed at QP. The number of printed jobs I produce each year has diminished, with more online delivery of communications materials, however, printing jobs across the street from my office has always been a regular part of my work experience. All of that is changing. In February 2015, QP closes it’s press room. Although they will still act as brokers for printing through outside resources, Queen’s Printer will be a different place. The building across the street will seem strangely quiet without the repetitive clacking of the presses and hum of machinery. One of the last jobs to run are the materials for this year’s budget. While this job was printing, I was able to make photos in the press room, documenting the end of an era. The last print run……

Complete report from the Fujifilm stand at CP+ 2015 | Gritty Monkey

CP+ is always an exciting time for Fujifilm users, as we usually get a pick to some of the upcoming X-series products, way before they hit the market. Granted, this is mainly work-in-progress, so there might be changes down the road (such as the infamous “no-OIS on the final version of the XF16-55mmF2.8″ incident), but still the refreshed lens roadmap always gives a welcome clarity on the big picture (no pun intended!). To me, and the long queue of people waiting for their turn, the highlight of Fujifilm’s stand at each CP+ is always the lens bar, where you can choose any XF lens that has already been officially released (so up to the XF16-55mmF2.8 this year), and try it on the X-series body of your choice. You can also try the X100’s line or Fuji’s compact cameras, if that is what you are interested in. This year, Fujifilm had set up a stage with a Harley Davidson and a 2 models wearing high boots and tiny leather shorts posing around it. I want to make 2 quick comments about it…….
