X-Mount & XF lenses may support fX | John Caz

Yes, you read that right but before fast scrolling through to the end, please read this blog post from start to finish. I am not affiliated with Fujifilm in any way, and I’m no optical engineer either, just a photographer with time on his hands to experiment and ponder on some questions that have been bothering me ever since comparing my Fujifilm X-T1 with my D800. Please journey with me on my quest to figure out if the X mount and X series lenses can support a larger sensor. When I first compared the Nikon full frame body with the X-T1, the first thing that intrigued me was the large size of the mount throat compared to the size of the sensor. That got me thinking, so I started comparing some bodies to see if i could get a better picture of what was really happening. While looking at this comparison, we must not forget that the Nikon being a DSLR has the sensor further back from the mount so beware of miniaturizing perspective. Personally what I see is plenty of room for the Fuji sensor to grow. (Nikon F-mount 44mm, Flange to focal plane 46.5mm. Fujifilm X-mount 44mm, Flange to focal plane 17,7mm) …..

Side by Side Comparison: XF56mm F1.2 R Lens vs
XF56mm F1.2 R APD Lens | Leigh Diprose


 
Last week, I released the second edition of What XF Lens Should I Buy? The response from the community was very positive, however I did receive a few questions asking if I could show the difference between the XF56mm F1.2 R and the XF56mm F1.2 R APD as both lenses looked very similar on paper. I’m happy to announce your requests have been answered in the form of a side by side comparison. To test the lenses I setup two Fujifilm X-T1’s and attached a XF56mm F1.2 R lens onto one of the bodies and the highly anticipated XF56mm F1.2 R APD lens on the other. There were a few controls I put in place to make the comparison as close as possible. First, I navigated through the camera’s setup menu and located the ‘Reset’ menu, I then proceed to reset the ‘Shooting Menu’ and ‘Set-up’. Once this was complete I removed the Fujifilm UV filters from both lenses and cleaned the front element using a lens cloth. All images were captured in Aperture Priority using a 2 second self timer with electronic shutter turned off.  A 3 Legged Thing Tripod was used to ensure there was no camera movement during the exposure and all images bar the last two were photographed in a RAW format. Images were then exported as .jpegs using Lightroom 5.0 with no editing or alterations……

Fuji X100s vs x100t: Portraits & More | The Inspired Eye

Member Neill Soden got his hands on the Fuji X100T. He has a lot of nice family oriented images so I asked him to talk about his images and his opinion on the Fuji x100s vs x100t since he had both. [All images made with the X100t] I want to thank Olivier Duong for allowing me to write for his site once again. It’s always a great feeling when asked by such great collaborations to show off a little of one’s work. I really love taking photos, and continuously do so. I tend to try a little bit of everything, most of it are all ideas and projects I make up as I go. I do tend to stay way from big stuff with lights, props and models. Although I would love to give it a go at some point, it usually comes with some sort of cost that is very hard to recuperate.  Also, my growing philosophy of my photography is to keep the gear need and use low, light and easy to carry around. As I make little to no income from photography, I could say it’s driven a lot by my passion and not  by money. I am assuming this helps to some degree, as there are no pressure to perform, and no one to shoot for but myself. It does not help with gear lust, though. For most events and gatherings or even going out in the streets, I’ve got my X100T on me. Be it a outing to a restaurant or social event at a friend’s home……

Fuji X100T vs X100s – 9 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade |
Alik Griffin

In the last few months I’ve been reading a lot of blogs and reviews on the Fuji X100T, and there is this thing they all seem to imply, “The X100T isn’t really worth the upgrade if you already own the X100s.” I couldn’t really say whether or not I agreed with this since I never owned any Fuji camera since the Fuji X100T. But honestly only a few bloggers have any business talking about Fuji cameras. Zack Arias and Patrick Laroque to name two. Most other blogs should be taken with a grain of salt, including this one. The reason is, Fuji cameras are special, there is something unique these cameras offer to photographers that goes beyond tech specs and sensor sizes. It’s something not quantifiable and can’t be measured by DXOMark and most people don’t understand that. So to get to the bottom of this, I decided to borrow a Fuji X100s and try it out for a week to see how it felt compared to the X100T. Most people have the X100s before trying out the X100T, where as I’ve been using the T and am going back to the S. And wow! The T is a serious upgrade. It’s hard to believe the S is only a year and a half old. Feels more like five years. After using the X100T and trying out the S for awhile, here are a few of the big things that stood out to which I feel make the X100T a great update………

Comparing Apples and Pears – Fuji’s XT-1 v X-Pro1 | Dave Young

Having had my Fuji XT-1 for around 3 months now, it’s fair to say I’ve been itching to write a comparison review of it next to my well loved, but at times frustrating Fuji X-Pro1 for a while now. Following the recent firmware upgrade of both models, now seems to be a good time to re-appraise my thoughts on the X-Pro1 and how it fits in alongside the XT-1. I’ll warn you now though, this isn’t so much of a technical appraisal, rather a look, touch and feel kind of review. For sure, it appears my X-Pro1 has become something of a shelf queen. As much as it saddens me to say, when I reach for a camera now, it’s the XT-1 I reach for. With perhaps the exception of the X-Pro1’s fantastic looks, the XT-1 outperforms the X-Pro1 in almost every situation…….

Fuji X series portrait lenses compared inc. 56 APD and 50-140 zoom |
Damien Lovegrove

Out of curiosity I have done a mini test with six Fujifilm X series lenses to better understand the characteristics of their images and the differences between them. I wanted to see how the clarity, contrast and bokeh compares. This is not laboratory science, it is a real world A/B comparison where the results are subjective and open to interpretation. I’m not one to read MTF graphs and I believe all professional lenses made today should be reasonably sharp so my attention as always turns to how pleasing is the rendering of the scene? I want to asses both the in and out of focus bits. So I went off to the cold, dark, woods with my friend Charlotte and set up a tripod. I used a Fuji X-T1 camera. The images were downloaded and the file names changed to represent the exif info. They were normalised for exposure but other than that there were no other tweaks. The sharpening settings were 25, 1, 25 and there was no noise reduction. I used the Pro Neg S camera profile and synchronised the white balance across the files. Note: Clicking on the picture will bring up the corresponding full res jpeg……….

Fuji Grips HG-XE1 vs MHG-XE | Derren Hodson

This is a comparison and review of the two grips you can buy for the Fuji XE-1 or XE-2. The original grip for the XE-1 (HG-XE1) and the newer grip for the XE-1 or 2 (MHG-XE) both fit both cameras. The original grip was introduced along with the XE-1 and is required for better handling of the camera with heavier lenses, i.e. 56mm and the 23mm. The original grip was made of plastic and screws onto the bottom of the camera, it has a very nice felt bottom and a self fastening screw. The second version is made of metal and has an allen bolt so you need to have an allen key tool to unscrew and screw it in, this makes it more of a permanent fixture. There is no felt on the bottom but is finished to a high quality, it also has a little lip unlike the original which is flush…..

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…….

THE REAL DIFFERENCE: XF56 vs XF56 APD vs FF |
NIKO VILLEGAS & JAN GONZALES

I’ve gotten my fair share of questions regarding the XF56mm F1.2 R APD, most of which are asking what it brings to the table that the original XF56 doesn’t already. The question is quite understandable as there hasn’t really been any sample images that depict the difference of the lenses effectively. Even the marketing material that Fujifilm brought with them to show the differences wasn’t that much convincing from all the photos I’ve seen posted here on the internet of things. Just like the XF50-140, we also had the opportunity to test pre-production samples of the lenses last October. These are the actual lenses displayed in Photokina (where they were first displayed) a day before they arrived here in the Philippines and brought here by non other than Hiroshi Kawahara! The same man who pioneered the X-Series with the original X100. Unfortunately since 56mm isn’t exactly the focal length I work with and seeing this lens is more for portraits than landscape photography, it was all but fitting that two of my colleagues; also two of the best fashion photographers in the country, should be the ones to take on the task – fellow X-Photographers Niko Villegas and Jan Gonzales……..

Fuji X-E1 vs. Nikon D800 – David and Goliath | Jiri Ruzek

That’s really too much. Comparing one of the best cameras of all time, Nikon D800 worth over € 2200 with Fuji X-E1 for some € 500? I totally agree. So why did I do something like that? No mystery. I had the famous Nikon D800 over one week at home and because it is almost exactly one year when I sold my old D700 and bought Fujifilm X-E1, I wanted to try it. The D800 would be definitely my next step in the Nikon line, so I also wanted to know how big difference is between those two cameras – the one I bought and the one I didn’t buy. What benefits would I get in D800 against D700? Full frame sensor (no change), giant 36 megapixel resolution instead of the current 12, a high quality video (instead of none). And again, over € 2000 investment into the camera body. It is well known that I chose a small mirrorless camera Fujifilm X-E1. Investments (the body) was below € 500. The camera has an APS-C sensor with 16 megapixels resolution, its video is usable, but it’s not the pride of X-E1. The cameras are totally different, how could I compare them? But I had to do it. This urge to tinker with it and maybe even humbly admit that perhaps you might be elsewhere. Or not?…….
