Fuji X Buyer’s Guide :: Lenses | Zack Arias

This is part two of my three part Fuji X Series Buyer’s guide. Please visit part one to read my introduction to this series and read my thoughts on the wide array of Fuji X cameras that are on the market. As stated in my camera post, the following information is simply my personal opinion on the Fuji lenses that I have used thus far. This isn’t going to be a comprehensive look at every Fuji lens made or third party lenses simply because I haven’t used every single lens out there on the market. I have used a good number of them, though, so I feel this will be a pretty good overview of what’s available along with some information about why I haven’t used some of the others. I’ll give some links at the end of this post to other resources for you to research this topic more if you choose to. When Fuji developed their interchangeable lens system they brought with them years and years of experience in lens design and manufacturing. Fuji has always made fantastic glass. From high end $62,000 video lenses, to satellite and medical optics, to designing and manufacturing Hasselblad lenses. Then there were all the Fuji cameras and lenses they’ve been making for years and years. To put it simply, Fuji knows glass………

Fuji X Buyer’s Guide :: Part 1 :: Cameras | Zack Arias

I have been a Fuji fan boy since the original X100 and, as you can see from the photo above, I have continued to drink the Fuji juice. That’s almost all of my Fuji gear. I have a few things loaned out right now. All I wanted was a small easy to carry camera that had great image quality. I wasn’t looking for a new system. I didn’t need a new system. I just needed that thing in between a point and shoot or cell phone camera and a full fledged DSLR. That’s where the X100 came in. Then Fuji introduced the X-Pro1 and hired me to go shoot with it in India. I still wasn’t looking for a new system. Look at all the shit I have now. I’m asked on a daily basis what my thoughts are on this X camera vs. that X camera. Which lens? Which accessory? Which battery? But what about the Sony or Olympus such and such? The goal of these posts is to answer those questions. All of these answers are based on my personal opinion and from using this gear on personal projects and paid client work. Remember — these are my opinions. This isn’t a review of the gear. This isn’t a gallery of sample images. This post is for those of you looking into a system like this and I’m giving you an educated opinion. Also note that no one is paying me a dime or a yen to make this post…….

iPhone 6 vs. Regular Camera … Fight! | Charlie Sorrel

iPhone 6 vs. Regular Camera … Fight! – Vantage – Medium

Have you noticed something weird about the photos that come out of the iPhone 6? They’re less vibrant, flatter, lacking in contrast compared to shots from the iPhones 5, and to photos from most other phones and point-and-shoot cameras. This realization got me excited. Do you know what else looks flat and dull out of even the best cameras? RAW files, the unprocessed soup of picture data that some cameras offer you instead of a nicely pre-pepped JPG. And this got me thinking — are the iPhone 6’s images designed to be edited? After all, iOS 8 is all about editing photos, with “extensions” that let you use powerful image-processing apps without leaving the comfort of your Photo Library. To test this theory, I took the same pictures with the iPhone 6 and my Fujifilm X100S and pushed them around in Adobe’s Lightroom app. If I’d had an iPhone 6 Plus the results would have been identical — the only difference between the 6 and 6 Plus, camera-wise, is the optically-stabilized lens on the bigger iPhone…..

Punjab travelogue and my X100s | Sinbad Phgura

For me photography has been a life long passion , I got my first a square 35mm box tammy camera at the age of nine and and have been shooting ever since. I use mostly digital format cameras now, but not much has changed subject-wise, it’s people that I like to capture most, working with natural light & keeping the whole process as simple as possible. The magic for me has always been in the character study, to capture the honesty of the moment, & to connect with the soul somehow. That’s why India is such a joy to shoot, with all of it’s humanity right there in front of you to see, smell, hear & touch! I love the light, it’s incredible how its shades, textures & changes everything it touches throughout the day. I’ve been around the Fujifilm X system for a while now, one of my best friends Alex Lambrechts shoots with it & I know that these cameras are capable of stunning results! But I myself have so far have resisted to try one. It’s only when you have the camera in your hand and you have to shoot with it for a period of time, adjusting your mindset from dslr to rangefinder that the magic happens. Equipped with the Fuji X100s and a Millican camera bag I was off on my journey, Qatar Airways to Amritsar & into the heartland of the Punjab for my nephew’s wedding…….

REVIEW: First Impressions of the Nissin i40 Flashgun
for the Fuji X-Series | Jeff Carter

Last week I received the new Nissin i40 flash for the Fujifilm X-Series cameras from Cambrian Photography, a superb customer focused independent photographic retailer located in Colwyn Bay, North Wales. One of the criticisms of the X-Series has been the lack of a credible flashgun for the system.  While Fujifilm have produced three flashguns (the EF-42, EF-20 and EF-X20), these have been lacking in the flexibility that professional and enthusiast photographers have been demanding. I bought the EF-20 for my X100 in early 2013 and while this is a great little flash, it doesn’t allow me to get very creative due to it’s limited controls. Fujifilm have hinted that a new flash is on the way in 2015 but in the meantime Nissin have stepped up to the plate and delivered a Fujifilm compatible version of its award winning i40…..

Using RAW or SOOC jpegs with Fuji X? – A discussion |
Jayson Oertel

I’ve been shooting exclusively with Fuji for almost 2 years now, and I am extremely impressed with the IQ that these guys kick out.  In addition, I’ve noticed that my workflow and post processing efficiency has increased.  Perhaps this can be attributed to my level of skill increasing, but nonetheless, my Fuji nails the shot every time (technically speaking).  But something happened on Sunday night…you know, one of those moments where you get smacked upside the head because something was right in front of your face and you missed it. The city where I live has a yearly Christmas festival, where everyone turns out.  There’s food, music, arts, crafts, and general holiday cheer.  Kids run around carelessly, excited to see Santa.  Adults all know each other, as it’s a small community, and shoot the shit.  I took my Fuji X-T1 with my XF35mm lens, and that’s it.  For a change, instead of just capturing RAW, I decided to capture in both JPEG (F) + RAW.  I also played around with a B&W simulation (Monochrome + G filter) since I was planning on shooting some portraits and wanted to try something different.  I walked around, framed a few shots, pressed the shutter, and WOW…….

Using the X100T with Elgato Smart Power | David Cleland

My first accessory for the X100T comes in the form of the Elgato Smart Power device. In today’s modern, battery powered living we spend a lot of time looking at battery indicators and trying to conserve power, the Elgato Smart Power is a mobile charging solution, (admittedly with iOS and mobile devices owners in mind) that could offer a whole new set of opportunities for the modern photographer. Out of all the enhancements, upgrades and improvements to the Fujifilm X100T I am particularly excited about the introduction of charging over USB and it made perfect sense to partner the Elgato Smart Power with the X100T. Firstly I should explain that the Elgato Smart Power is a lightweight, slimline battery pack that allows the connection of any device that charges over USB. It’s a powerful mobile charger that when fully charged offers 3 complete charges of my iPhone 5C. The Elgato Smart Power sounds simple but it is actually a sophisticated device with a number of bells and whistles that make it special compared to other mobile charging devices. Firstly it really is travel sized, it’s light and doesn’t feel like your carrying a brick in your bag when out and about. The Elgato Smart Power is designed for general USB charging and although isn’t specifically designed for the X100T I have been successfully charging my camera over the last few days……….

Cuba Diary #1 | Jorge Ledesma

Time flew, it was a short flight of only 40 minutes from Miami and in a blink of an eye we arrived in Boyero, Cuba (location of the Jose Marti Airport). From here we took a cab to La Habana, Cuba’s capital city, and the adventures began. At first, it was a huge culture shock but then I quickly realized just how special La Habana really is. La Habana is a beautiful city trapped in a time capsule but nonetheless it exudes a unique beauty that in my opinion can only be appreciated with your own eyes. Its for sure a one of the “must see” cities in the world. If you ask me how it looks, I would say its like if Paris and Madrid had a love child which they gave up for adoption and shipped to the Caribbean. We ate, we laughed, we shared, and overall had a wonderful time with my in-laws. I arrived a few days ago and I can’t wait to go back. Here’s a short gallery of what’s to come in the next few days……
