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?…….

Comparing the XF50-140mm F2.8 to the XF56mm F1.2 |
RANDALL CIPRIANO

I’ve been lucky enough to have tried a few pre-production samples of the XF50-140mm back in October and saw first hand how sharp it was comparing it with both XF56mm F1.2 R original and APD versions as well as with another brand’s top gun of the same class. But due to the pre-production status of the lens, as always, we had to reserve our final impressions until the production models come out which is what I have with me right now. We were supposed to field test the lens this coming week at the Fujifilm Trek to Mt. Pulag. Unfortunately, due to the apparent threat of Typhoon Hagupit, we had to postpone the trip to next month. So I settled with taking some mixed scenes to compare the XF50-140 and XF56. I tried to match the focus area and the focal length of the XF50-140 to 56mm but the camera doesn’t report the actual focal length of zooms as accurately as I would have liked. Focal length and focus area variance aside, it’s interesting to see how similar in sharpness both lenses are even at F2.8 which is wide open for the XF50-140 and stopped down for the XF56mm which should have given it the advantage. The XF56 is also a prime lens which in most cases have been attributed to have better image quality than zooms. Yes, a totally unscientific test, but you get the point…….

Olympus E-M1 vs. Fuji X-T1 – after using both for a longer period
of time | Robin Schimko

Verdict

There are more things that separate those two cameras and my findings just represent the most important ones for me. Either way both of these cameras are very capable and both have their strengths and weaknesses. If you want a lightweight and small kit then the E-M1 might be the way to go. But if you want direct access to the most important controls and you don’t mind a little more weight and a little bulkier lenses, then the X-T1 could be the camera of your choice. The bottom line is that you can’t go wrong with any of these cameras and in the end it’s more about personal preferences. No matter how you gonna decide, enjoy your camera and keep shooting……

Smaller is better! | Edward Radcliffe

Ed and I have shot with big full frame DSLR cameras for many years as they are proven workhorses that help us to get great results. Recently, high performance cameras have been getting smaller, lighter and frankly better. Yes, I said it… better.

‘But full frame cameras produce less noise!’

I can hear the chant of DSLR camera fans everywhere and for many years they were right. I remember the day I swapped my trusty Nikon D80, a cropped sensor camera that taught me so much for a full frame D700. It was an extraordinary experience, one that enabled me to shoot a rehearsal the Albert Hall with no concerns about image noise…….

Nikon D800 and my Fuji X-T1 | Jorge Moro

Last Friday I decided to go out shooting.  The night before I selected which  cameras I was taking with me:  The Niikon D800 with the 50 and the 18-35 wide angle and the Fuji X-T1 with the Zeiss 12mm, the Fuji 35mm and the 18-55 lens. On the morning I was headed out, I changed my mind and left the D800 sitting right where you see it in the image below.  I left the house just with the Fuji gear.  That was a first.  What I found truly enjoyable was actually walking around with the lightweight kit!  No dSLR, no long lenses.  Just me, the Fuji camera, lenses and the tripod!  It was a fantastic, fun, and productive outing generating many stock images, as well as photography just for some fun. After returning from my short but very productive trip, and seeing the images open in Lightroom I knew I had made the correct decision leaving the D800 behind.  The X images were phenomenal;  clear, sharp, and well composed as I had the freedom to move around without being encumbered by heavy gear. The rear tilting LCD  came in very handy when shooting very low to the ground.  I purposely found some compositions that worked down low, these were compositions I may not have attempted with the Nikon gear……..

REVIEW: Fujinon XF60mm f2.4 v Fujinon XF56mm f1.2 | Jeff Carter

Last month I added the superb Fujinon XF56mm f1.2R lens to my camera bag, which is the seventh Fujinon lens I have bought for my X-Series kit. It is also the third lens that covers the short telephoto range, the others being the XF55-200mm f3.5/4.8 zoom and the XF60mm f2.4R macro. This had me wondering if I could sell off one of the lenses or did each lens offer something that meant I could justify hanging on to all three? Well for starters we can ignore the 55-200mm zoom as this lens offers the long telephoto reach I need for my landscapes and wildlife. It is an excellent all round zoom lens that has a place in my camera bag. So that leaves the two prime lenses…….

Fuji X-T1: Is it a better street camera than the X100T? | Mike Evans

Currently I’m putting Fuji’s highly acclaimed X-T1 through its paces. It came with the standard 18-55 zoom but I have managed to borrow a remarkable little pancake, the 27mm f/2.8. I reckon it is just about the bee’s knees when it comes to street photography. My first question, though, is how this combination compares with the lionised X100/S/T, the camera that started Fuji on to X series road in 2010. It seems incredible now that we have seen the X cameras spawn like crazy from such a simple beginning. But, more important, Fuji has launched perhaps the most comprehensive array of pro-quality lenses ever seen in such a short period. The X100 range with its 35mm-equivalent fixed focal length and ingenious hybrid viewfinder has rightly won its place high on the list of streettog desirables. This little Leica M3 lookalike is probably the most popular go-to camera for street enthusiasts……

X100s v X-Pro1 – Comparing Two Favourites | Dave Young

Having owned my X100s for just a little over a week now and more or less taken it everywhere, I thought it would be an idea to talk about my initial impressions of it against my X-Pro1 which through 12 months of ownership I’ve had a bit of a love/hate relationship with. At times I feel the X-Pro1 is the best camera I’ve ever owned and at times I’ve felt I should sell up and start over with a completely different system. Coming from a pretty simple DSLR system of a Canon 5D Mark1 and a couple of primes to the Fuji X-Pro1 was certainly an eye opener for sure. Having always had that nagging feeling in the back of my mind that the X100 was the camera I really should own, I had the option to pick one up recently. I could have added another lens, or maybe even two to my X-Pro1 but felt now was the time to finally buy into the X100. I picked up a soon to be replaced almost new X100s which is perfect for everyday carrying around and with the 23mm fixed focal length is ideal for just about, well everything…….
