Fujifilm announces macro tubes, tethering software and
X-series firmware availability | DPreview

Fujifilm has announced two macro extension tubes for its X-series interchangeable lens cameras, the MCEX-11 and MCEX-16. Compatible with Fuji’s XF and XC lenses, they offer full AE function and are designed to ’seamlessly blend into the original look and feel of the X-series‘. The MCEX-11 and MCEX-16 will be available in mid-December for $99.95. Also making its debut is Fuji’s PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows v1.0. It provides two operation modes, Camera Mode and PC Mode for making exposure adjustments either on the camera or connected computer. Macro tubes and tethering software may appeal to a smaller portion of Fujifilm’s X-series owners, but their introduction signals a continued commitment from Fujifilm to build a viable system for serious photographers. Fujifilm has also given a December 18 release date for X-T1 firmware promised at Photokina. The firmware v3.0 brings features such as 1/32000sec electronic shutter, ‚Classic Chrome‘ film simulation mode and direct AF area selection to both original black and newer silver X-T1 models.

DiCaPac WP-S3 Underwater Housing For FujiFilm X-T1- XPro1 |
Vitalij Kazackov

…. following my previous post about underwater housing and photography I don’t want to repeat myself about things like: how to prepare your camera for the first time, few little tricks that might help, camera settings etc. Also, certain features that apply to DiCaPac WP-S3 and WP-S10 are shared, but I rather talk about actual feeling I got from using it with Fujifilm cameras systems. For my initial test I used Fuji X-Pro1 and X-T1. Both cameras performed well, but my personal selection falls towards Fuji X-T1…..

THE ‘IMAGE-FEEL’ OF X-TRANS | Pete Bridgwood

The journey to mastery of landscape photography in the deepest sense, is paved with spirituality. It is about finding resonance with nature’s theatre, visual discovery, self-expression; fundamentally, landscape photography is a metaphor for the human condition. I make no apology if this all sounds a little romantic, landscape photography deserves to be romanticised; when done well, it can capture emotion in it’s most primeval guise and preserve it for eternity. There’s an overwhelming preoccupation with gear in much of the photographic press, and for good reasons. If the commercial cogs keep turning and camera clientele consume, then design develops, technology thrives and we all continue to benefit: that’s how consumerism works. For many of us though, this perennial obsession with the latest cameras and accessories can become a little distracting, some may even say ‘irritating’. We would suggest, that it’s not the camera you use, but the photographs you make with it that count, or that the best camera is whichever one you have with you, or that photographer’s make photographs, not cameras, right? …..

Fujifilm X-Signature Cameras | Matthew Maddock

As an X-Photographer I was invited by Fujifilm UK to have my X-Pro1 re-skinned in their range of X-Signature colours.  As far as I’m aware this is a service only currently available in the UK. I was also keen to get my X100S re-skinned at the same time as a matching pair so cheekily asked if I could have my X100S done as well!  I went back and forth over the colours, the orange really appealed to me right away but I wasn’t really sure if I was ready for an orange camera!  I initially asked for both of them to be done in the red lizard, which I think works well with the black finish of both cameras, but the red wasn’t in stock and available when I went down to Fuji HQ to have them done.  However, now I’ve had them both done I’m so glad it wasn’t!  In the end as you can see, I opted for and orange X-Pro1 and a dark blue lizard X100S…….

Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography |
X-Pro 1 & X100S Review | V. Opoku

After shooting weddings exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and X100S cameras for about 19 months, here are my thoughts and findings on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography. Now this is not a technical review but rather a general conversation with my good friend and fellow Wedding Photographer, Jonathan Ellis which segued into a discussion on my experience shooting weddings with the Fujifilm X-Series cameras. I decided to hit the record button on my phone and here is a transcript of some of the topics we discussed. I don’t even think this is a format for writing reviews, but I hope it works out OK and the topics discussed provides an insight for anybody out there considering the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, be it exclusively or to supplement their existing DSLR systems.

What to expect:

Well my name is Vincent, but commonly known as V ; so whenever V appears before a body of text, that was me talking/responding to Jonathan’s questions. For consistency sake and laziness on my part, Jonathan will be J in this article. Jonathan asks the questions and I respond ; I share my experience on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, my likes and dislikes, the strength and weakness of the system as a whole, the things to improve on and my conclusion…….

12 Months With My Fuji X-Pro1 | Dave Young

I’ve had my Fuji X-Pro1 for just about a year now so thought it would be a good time to review the past 12 months of living with it and jot down the highs and lows of life with the Fuji X-Pro1. Having made a decision to swap over from an all prime DSLR full frame kit, the X-Pro1 was a shoe in as a change. I did consider the XE1 initially, but as soon as I cradled the X-Pro1 in my arms I was sold. I was in search of something smaller, lighter, just as capable for image quality and the Fuji X-Pro1 fitted all of those criteria. Added to that was the customer service that Fuji was fast building a reputation for, continuing to take good care of its past client base through firmware updates for its camera bodies and lenses, long after they’d been superseded. Using the X-Pro1 you don’t just buy into a camera system, you kind of buy into a whole eco-system, care included……

LONG EXPOSURE COLLECTION 2013 | Wilson Chiew

Back to April 2012, When I first purchased the variable ND filter (Vivitar Series 1) from Ebay. I desperate wanted to try out the newly acquired filter. Thus then, my bosses, colleagues and I went for a short trip in Kuantan’s Teluk Cempedak Beach and I couldn’t wait to shoot it with my X-Pro1 and 35mm. I got my first long exposure picture since then and these are the photos I uploaded to internet and felt proud about it. However, as I go through at the photos by the time I posting this. They just don’t look nice at all (Not afraid to show them). These pictures are over sharpening (probably due to filter glass quality so I did the harsh sharpening), color casting (overturned the variable ND filter and tried to have Big Stopper effect but epic failed), over exposure at the top part and composition are out……

All photos were taken by Fujifilm X-Pro1 and XE-2 with Samyang 8mm, 23mm, 35mm and 56mm

THIS CITY on Exposure | Jonathan Wilson

I haven’t put very large dent in my travel bucket list, but Havana, Cuba was most definitely on it. Living in Miami for the last 8 years, I went in with expectations in my head, most of which didn’t align with what I experienced in my short stay.Finally after a few false alarms myself, Dillon Hearns, Conall Keenan, John Mahoney and Matt Sosna joined a group from Amigo Skate. We loaded up our bikes, snorks and heavy bags of parts to help keep BMX and skateboarding alive in Cuba. All of the travel details of how this trip came to be are confusing and long winded. Travel to Cuba is somehow simple and complicated. Weight limits on all luggage. Exchanging money – US Dollars -> Euro -> Cuban Convertible Currency (CUC) to avoid the additional taxes. Having no phones once there. Questions from the TSA, German Shepherds before getting on the plane…The hours before takeoff were intense, I didn’t really believe I was going to Cuba directly from Miami until the plane was in the air.Somehow a 30 minute flight became spending half the day in both MIA and HAV airports. Finally we made through the excruciating moments of waiting for our bikes and the damage they may have incurred. Finally we made it to the exterior of José Martí International Airport, I was hit with what I could only described and some kind of sensory overload. Typically when I land at an airport I scatter to a tram or my motorcycle and I’m off. In Havana we were greeted by a few hundred locals, taxi drivers and assorted characters. It was surreal…..

Spain 2014 and some thoughts on the Fujifilm X-T1 |
Christopher Swan

Here are the 5 sets of images I made in Gran Canaria, Valencia and Barcelona this summer. All images were made with a Fujifilm X-T1 and mainly with the 18-55mm lens. I’ve been very, very pleased with the camera, it does everything I want with the minimum of fuss. It lets me get on with photography. It just works! Jpegs straight out the camera are first rate and RAW files have a lot of latitude for processing. I had some slight worries before about digital viewfinders, the X-E1 felt a bit like peering at a TV in someone else’s house from across the street. Not that I’ve ever done that….um… But the X-T1 viewfinder is massive – very bright and clear with very little lag . I was shooting in very bright sunlight and didn’t have any problems with either the viewfinder, or the screen. My last camera was a Canon 5Dmk2 and lugging it around for a day in the city (with associated lenses) was a pain in the arse. With the X-T1, the 18-55mm lens plus a spare battery (or three) I am set for a days shooting in the city…….
