Fuji X100s

My favourite X photographs | Richard Simko

It was October 2012 when I purchased my first Fuji X camera.  I was after a small, inconspicuous yet capable camera and I got myself a Fuji X-E1 with 35mm Fujinon lens. This combo seemed to be the best fit at the time. Prior to Fuji, I have tried small cameras from other manufacturer but I was not completely happy for one reason or another. They were of the first generation of mirrorless cameras. At that time a new, but promising technology. I knew that sooner or later there will be a camera that would fit me. I just had to be patient. And I am not talking about megapixels or any of that nonsense. I am talking about a tool that would allow me to focus on my vision and communicate that through the photographs. That “camera” happened to be from Fuji. To this date I owned 3 of them and I liked them all. To me they felt very natural. Quirki at the times but nothing too serious. I read many comments and complains from other people who didn’t like to use them. That’s perfectly fine. Just use whatever camera you like. I have friends who tried Fuji and didn’t feel comfortable with it. They moved to different system and guess what. They  make beautiful images. One camera will not fit everyone. Pick yours and make it work the way you like. I did……

Up Goes The Ante: Fuji’s X100T | Gregor Simpson

Truth be told, I rather dislike writing about cameras that are currently on the market. Inevitably, if a camera doesn’t fulfill my needs, I’m labelled ‘an idiot’ by those who are loyal to the brand. If a camera does fulfill my needs, I’m labelled ‘an idiot’ by those who are loyal to competing brands. The implication, therefore, is that I’m an idiot no matter what I think — hence the need for the previously mentioned blogging accoutrements. René Descartes once famously said, “I think, therefore I am.” Had the internet been around in Descartes’ time, I’m quite certain the exact quote would have been, “I think, therefore I am an idiot.” So why do I bother posting camera discussions on the internet? Two reasons — both selfish: First, any article that geeks out over camera gear receives roughly 1000% more readers than one of my prototypically philosophical (and far better, IMHO) ULTRAsomething articles. Second, I like to try out new cameras. And the “price” I pay for borrowing a camera from a manufacturer is that I must agree to write about it on the internet……

Walking it Off | Bill McCarroll

I’m fighting a head cold.  As is typical, colds wear me down physically and mentally so I thought a walk at lunchtime would be the best remedy.  Fresh air and a warm sun couldn’t hurt. I had my Fuji X100s with me today.  I shot quite a bit of film over the long President’s Day weekend which is now on the way to TheFINDLab in Orem, Utah. The bright midday sun is always a challenge.  I elected to leverage the brightness rather than fight it by deliberately exposing and sometimes over exposing to the right of the histogram.  I love shooting the X100s.  Unlike many others, I really like the electronic viewfinder (EVF).  One of the features I use constantly is the built in histogram in the EVF.  I can instantly see where my composition falls with the exposure, how far to the right the shot will fall.  Knowing the scene, I can tell what parts of the scene are going to blow out and decide whether I’m okay with that before pressing the shutter.  I also dial down the color saturation to -2 to desaturate everything.  I like the bright, somewhat washed out look.  The Fuji colors can be strong so dialing them down can be really nice……

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…….

Naha, Okinawa with the Fuji TCLX100 | Shootlighter

I’m one of those unfortunate people who have a birthday in January. For years I’ve cursed this as everyone is still hungover from Christmas, and frankly don’t want to be concerned with such frivolity. Being a photographer has slowly changed my opinion of January, and winter as a whole. Instead of seeing endless days of cold weather, I see limitless opportunities for frosty landscapes and those cool, blue tones as the sun hangs forever low in the sky. I’ve always been in love with the spring and autumn, but it’s taken a while to fall for winter. My dear wife-to-be Rachel treated me to a weekend in the Peak District at the end of January, nestled in the heart of the white peaks, down near my childhood haunts of Dovedale. When we left, there was little snow in Birmingham, but as we drove closer, the snow appeared. The night before we arrived, 6 inches had fallen and lay like a fresh blanket over the landscape, with snow still falling, rushing towards the windscreen in the dark, looking like we’d entered warp speed along the winding country roads……

Zoom! Zoom! | Tim Bray

In re­cent days I’ve bought two new Fu­ji­film lens­es. The choic­es weren’t easy and I’m far from con­vinced I did the right thing. Have a look and see what you think. 10-24 · Back be­fore Christ­mas I bought the (take a deep breath, of­fi­cial name here) Fu­ji­non XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS Wide An­gle Zoom Lens. It was sort of on im­pulse; new job, Christ­mas com­ing, felt in the mood for a toy, stum­bled across a great deal in a lo­cal cam­era shop. By way of back­ground, it’s one of the few Fu­ji­nons that’s out­side the fo­cal range of the two lens­es I orig­i­nal­ly picked up back in March 2013, the 18-55mm and the 35mm F1.4. It’s as­ton­ish­ing­ly, mind-bogglingly wide. You can stand right in front of a fair-sized tree and cap­ture the whole thing……

The Very Best X-Trans Lightroom Workflow | Hendrik Hazeu

OKOKOK – or maybe the very worst ;-) … All depends on your preferences and from which perspective you look at it ! I just prefer to spend as little time behind a computer screen as possible & rather’d go out take some PIX ! … Like this one, i found in Buitrago de Lozoya, Spain where there’s a great Pablo Picasso Museum: Go on and take a look, if you get a chance, you sure ain’t gonna regret it ! Anyway – in this Blog i’d like to share my X-Trans workflow. Yeah I know this kinda topic has been beaten to death elsewhere, but after reading ‘em all i developed my own “simplified” workflow & hope it’s of some interest to you X-Trans fans out there ! So, before X-Trans life was easy: import images, move some sliders around, DONE ! Then along came Fuji with their ab-so-lute-ly AWESOME APS-C X-Trans sensor – and nothing worked no more ! Even Adobe’s latest re-incarnation of Lightroom 5.7 still don’t cut it for me: The converted RAW files still often demonstrate the dreaded “smearing effect” on green foliage and other small details …

The Poor Mans Leica, FUJI X100S | Drew Hopper

After months of research and anticipation I finally purchased a Fuji X100S, and in short, it would have to be my best photography purchase to date. I wasn’t sure whether I’d like it as much as my eyes fancied the retro styling of the X-series cameras, but after two weeks of owning, holding and shooting with the X100S – I’m one happy camper. The slick retro style with simple analog dials, practical and dedicated aperture control on the lens and dead silent shutter tick all the boxes for me. This little baby is capable of producing stunning images, which it continues to do effortlessly even in JPEG and blows my mind every time. The Fuji’s have a real sense of heritage, probably how it got the name ‘The Poor Mans Leica’. There’s definitely an emotional connection when holding the X100S, it’s almost timeless in its mannerism. Just looking at the camera stimulates the senses and inspires expression of interest and the desire to go shooting. Before getting the Fuji I never really understood the ‘hype’ of them, but at the same time I never really felt much connection with my DSLR either. I believe it’s opened new avenues, a passion driven by integrity that will transport me on a new journey whether that be physically or mentally – this is the camera I will want by my side 24/7……

Metz releases the Mecablitz 26AF-1, TTL flash for Fujifilm cameras |
Michael Archambault

The lack of digital flash units that work with Fujifilm’s TTL system are an example of how our favorite company has a bit of catching up to do within their lighting ecosystem. Up until now, if consumers wanted an external TTL flash, they were limited to specially designed units by Fujifilm themselves. Now, Metz has announced the upcoming availability of their Mecablitz 26AF-1, a digital TTL flash for Fujifilm system cameras. The Metz Mecablitz 26AF-1 is a digital flash that offers full TTL compatibility, along with a wireless slave TTL functionality. The unit runs on two AAA batteries and has a guide number of 85 at ISO 100 and 85mm. The unit can be tilted 90-degrees upward for bouncing light off surrounding structures. As a bonus, the flash unit contains a LED video light with two different output levels…….
