Fuji X-Pro1

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…..

MOROCCO, NO PLAN, A CAMERA AND A PHONE APP | Luminis

I am writing this on the plane as we fly home from Marrakech, Morocco after what has been a very memorable week and best of all is that my wife, Carmen has loved it. When I first came here 3 years ago it was without her and every time I experienced the unique delights of Morocco I found myself constantly wishing she was here to share these moments with me. This time however she was here to experience it alongside me and like me has fallen in love with Morocco.  What is not to like about the this wonderful country, it’s beautiful climate, where March is like a English summer, it’s people so warm and friendly and its landscape so varied. Morocco has everything that Europe has but unlike Europe it has a unique and different culture that is both frightening and fascinating at the same time. Arriving in the Jemaa el-Fnaa on a Friday night for the uninitiated the sounds, the colours the smells the total assault on your senses could at first bring a degree of apprehension to the newcomer. Stepping into the mayhem is the only way forward for to watch from the periphery is pointless. …

A Fujiholics Story | Elke Vogelsang

My name is Elke Vogelsang. I’m 42 years old and living and working in Germany. I’m a self-taught photographer, who turned her passion into a profession. When my first own dog, Noodles, joined our family, I felt the need to improve my photography to take pictures which do justice to her beauty and charming character. Two more dogs followed. So, our canine pack consists of Noodles, Scout and Ioli. All three of them are very keen models. My husband fell seriously ill a few years ago at Christmas. He had a brain hemorrhage. The dogs (Noodles and Scout) were the ones who found him in time, so he could be saved. But he spent weeks in a coma, months without any short-term memory and months in hospital. Well, that’s a very long story in very short… My dogs and my photography were my comfort and distraction at that time. Fortunately, my husband recovered fully.……

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! ………

Riding Through Australian Countryside with the Fuji XT-1 |
Caveira Photography

Recently I was very lucky to spend 5 days cruising through the countryside of Victoria, Australia, soaking up amazing scenery that is unique to this part of the world, and experiencing some of the best light I’ve ever seen. There were many euphoric moments of awe and appreciation for my home country’s beauty, beauty that I had never seen or made a strong enough effort to experience and appreciate properly beforehand. Knowing full well that I had many kilometers of riding on rough tracks ahead of me, I packed a light day kit, which of course featured my FujiFilm XT-1, XF56, XF18, and the underrated XC50-230. With just about every focal length covered, plus a few spare batteries, I was ready to capture just about anything that caught my eye, which there was of course and abundance of………

Paris Engagement Photographer | Monique and Paul | Vincent Opoku

…in Copenhagen where we both worked in the same restaurant called Geranium” was how they met. Monique and Paul had me as their Paris Engagement Photographer and it was everything and more. I continue to pick up a camera because it enables me to build connections and share stories with people throughout the world. These two are both chefs and Paris is their home for the time being. Where as Paul is a Parisian through and through, Monique is originally from San Francisco. Food plays a big part in their story so we decided to head to a market, pick out some of bits, then find somewhere to sit and tucked in. It was the perfect afternoon in Paris to have an open picnic by The Seine River and trade stories. We discussed the favourite places we have travelled to so far (Paul’s happened to be Chicago – yep – even Monique was surprised) and some of the plans we for the future. After the picnic, we headed back to theirs where they got changed. Without a concrete plan we hit the streets of Paris again ; We roamed about – caught the sunset at the Louvre and carried on walking until we ended up at Arc De Triomphe……

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………
