Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review | Digital Photography Review

The Fujifilm X-T1 was a landmark camera in many ways, with it’s extremely high resolution electronic viewfinder, great image quality, weather-sealed body, and engaging control system (we even gave it a Gold award). It’s fairly commonplace for camera companies to follow up successful launches of high-end products, such as the X-T1, with a slightly-stripped down, more reasonably-priced alternative that uses many of the same components; a younger sibling, if you will. The Fujifilm X-T10 is exactly that. At its core are the same 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor and EXR Processor II. It carries on the SLR-like tradition (as opposed to Fujifilm’s more rangefinder-like cameras), and offers ample control points, customizable buttons, a tilting LCD, and of course, Fujifilm’s much-loved film emulations. Fujifilm is aiming it at hobbyist and a younger generation of creatives: essentially those who might not be able to afford (or don’t want to spend more than $1000 on) the X-T1, but still want the same image quality it offers…….

Fuji 16mm 1.4 R WR | Chris Harrison

A quick drive down to what is the biggest Japanese car festival in Europe, it was a beautiful sunny day so I employed the Electronic Shutter with the 16mm for the static shot, but obviously, being me, I had to try it with a bit of panning… I’m pleased to say weird Electronic Shuter distortion was much easier to control with the wider focal length, although with the stance of many cars in attendance it wasn’t always easy to tell…

Why would I need the new Fuji 16mm f 1.4 lens?????? | Bill Fortney

If you already own the Fuji 10-24 f 4 XF lens, or the Fuji 16-55 f 2.8 XF lens why would you invest in the new Fuji 16mm f 1.4 lens??!!  I just got a new production copy of the 16mm f 1.4 XF lens and I was wondering the same thing!!! So let’s give it a try in the field! First let me dispel what many people believe about extreme wide angle lenses, that they are designed so we, as photographers, can view, and thus, get more stuff in the image. While true, that’s not the most effective way to use a wide angle lens though!  A very effective way to use a wide angle lens is to move in close to your main subject and make it the sharpest thing in the image, and then allow the background to either be equally sharp, by  stopping down to a very small aperture setting like f 11 – 16 or 22, or to make the background “very” out of focus, or by opening the lens to it’s largest aperture setting. There in lies the value of a f 1.4 wide angle lens, the depth-of-field is extremely shallow when shot wide open ( f 1.4 ) thus making the background a very dreamy out of focus!!!  What makes this lens even more special is that it focuses down to a minimum distance of just 15cm!!!  That makes it all the more effective in showing strong, sharp, subjects with wonderful Bokeh in the background……

Time to move on | Philipp Winter

For the last 2 and a half years I’ve been shooting with an X-E1. It brought me back my joy in photography, when I was struggling to carry my 5D II to vacations, road trips etc. And it endured many curses over that time, when my daughter was faster than the AF. Which happened to be many many times… But at least I had my camera with me nearly all the time! Fuji provided many Firmware upgrades, which evolved the camera in a way I wasn’t used from my Canon history. Kaizen, lichtscheu ♥ you! But as time passed, new models came out. The X-E2, the X100s and entry level cameras live the X-A line and X-M. Every new model reflected points consumers demanded, and my beloved X-E1 reached a point it couldn’t keep up the race……..

Fujinon 16mm 1.4 | Neill Soden

This lens was somewhat of a surprise to me. Generally, I avoid wide angles like I avoid aubergine. However, I really grew to like the lens, which turned out to not be like aubergine at all. Unlike the 14mm, which I just could not get to like, this was different. Aperture ring moves with the nice, elegant clicks we’ve gotten used to on the 56mm, and have the manual focus quick pull-back, like on the 14mm and 23mm. It feels a bit bigger than the 23mm in hand, and is not shy in length next to the 56mm, with a ring size of 67mm.  Being weather sealed, that’s no surprise. I have always wondered why you would use f/1.4 in a wide angle, as for me this is more of a landscape lens and you would normally shoot f/8 and above………..

First Date with the Fuji X T1 | Michelle George

I’ve had a crush on the  Fuji X T 1 for while now..admiring it from a far, gazing at it longingly through Calumets shop window, though never quiet succumbing to temptation. Yet last month I finally gave in and like any first date I had my butterflies along with a whole array of mix emotions ranging from extreme doubt to high hopes…

The first thing that caught my eye was the difference in design to the Fuji X pro 1, this subconsciously suggested to me that Fuji had finally something to shout about since all over models succeeding the X Pro 1, like the Fuji X E1 and XE2 have been almost identical in design, albeit a slight difference in size and a few button shifts. The XT 1 is just as physically attractive as the X pro 1 and  keeps in with the retro ilk but overall it has a more solid, sturdy look to it. Though this is somewhat of an optical illusion as despite it’s weather sealed body (something the X pro 1 lacks) the X T1 is surprisingly small and weights actually 10g lighter than the X pro 1. This however ticked a box for me as one of my main reasons for falling in love with the X pro 1 was it lightweight design……

Fujifilm X-A2 Preview – First Impressions | Mike Tomkins

Back in late 2013, Fujifilm introduced the X-A1, a new entry-level point for its X-series mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera line. At the start of 2015, it follows up with the updated Fuji X-A2, a closely-related camera that sports some very worthwhile upgrades. Key among the changes is a new LCD articulation mechanism on the rear of the camera. It adds just a fraction to the overall thickness and weight, but for that subtle difference, you get a more selfie-capable camera. (And at the entry-level, even on an interchangeable-lens camera, selfie capture is a pretty common use case.) As before, the screen tilts close to 180 degrees, allowing shooting at a variety of angles such as from-the-hip. The change is that now, at its full upmost tilt extent, it can be extended upwards from the articulation mechanism a short distance, better allowing it to be seen from in front of the camera. This extension mechanism also serves to put the camera in selfie mode, where a new Eye Auto Focus mode comes into play, ensuring focus sits in the right place. (It’s one of a number of new autofocus modes on the updated camera.)……..

Fujinon XF16-55mm F2.8 lens at Zouk Singapore: My first impressions |
Flemming Bo Jensen

As some know, I am an official Fuji X-photographer, and for the last month I have had the highly anticipated Fujinon XF16-55mm F2.8 lens on loan for testing and shooting promotional material for Fuji Japan. At the same time, Charlene Winfred has made a promotional movie featuring me using the lens, click here to see it. We were in Singapore during the making of this project and naturally, my 1st choice for a music venue to shoot in was Zouk Singapore. Zouk Singapore is a legendary nightclub that is rated as one of the top 5 nightclubs in the world and I was dying to shoot there. Fortunately, Zouk was incredibly forthcoming and supportive of the project. This project was made over two nights of shooting at Zouk. Many thanks to Zouk for the access, and to Ethan Jones of Elixr Group for the introduction. Today, I will post my first impressions and 3 images. Stay tuned this week for more in depth thoughts on the lens and the project and more pictures……..

A Headless Chicken Photographer | Ivan Joshua Loh

Its was a mad week trying to prepare the gears for my 1st oversea shoot with the Fuji X system. Its a 9 days project shooting for India top property developer. Basically documenting a luxury condominium; the building and the people within the building. The final output will be a close to two hundred pages book. I was toying with the idea of having another XT1 body before I leave. So I contact Mr Favian Loo of Fujifilm and ask if I am able to get a unit of the XT-1 in graphite silver. Was told all the units available are for pre-order and all have been snap up. Therefore I will have to wait for the next shipment which is schedule for end of November. ( I leave for New Delhi on 17th) Feeling like a headless chicken; I ask again if he could help find a XT-1 GS for me? Replying politely to a crazy photographer; he says :I will try my best and wait for my call………

Fuji XT1 graphite silver: first images and impressions | Wim Arys

I just received my copy of the graphite silver edition Fuji XT1. Yes it has an electronic shutter now with shutter speeds up to 1/32000 second and you can set it to FULL SILENT MODE just like the Fuji X100T. The electronic silent shutter works with all lenses, but you’ll naturally need one of the faster lenses like the XF 56mm f/1.2 R to really take advantage of the faster shutter speeds. This leads me to the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 APO which in my opinion isn’t just a overpriced hipster accessory, but will help keep down blown highlights with these higher shutter speeds (haven’t tried it yet though). The graphite silver looks beautiful and changes from a shiny grey to a subtle gold depending on the light. For those of you kicking their heads right now: don’t worry, the build looks and feels exactly the same. It might be a good idea to go for the graphite silver edition if you’re planning on buying your first Fuji XT1, as it has a triple layer coating which should be more resistant to wear and tear than the black edition…..
