Fuji X-Pro1

My 3 Years With Fujifilm X-Series Cameras And Lenses | Bradley Hanson

This review is 3 years in coming, and isn’t really a review but rather a personal history of why the Fujifilm X-Series, specifically the X-Pro1 and X100S, is a perfect fit for me: the cameras I had been waiting for. I am a very technical and precise person, but this is not a technical review. These cameras have been out for years and there are much better reviews, including one by my friend (and Fuji X-Photographer) Vincent Opoku. I wanted to write something initially because using these cameras was revolutionary for me, but I also wanted to let the beer goggles dissipate and write logically and dispassionately about the experience so those considering the system could get a realistic understanding of what to expect without all the usual superlatives that come from excitement, and also to spare readers the agony of run on sentences like the one you are enduring now…….

See Agra and then quickly head for Gwalior | Paul Perton

Gwalior. Not on the itinerary of many India visitors and it really should be. I’d added it to ours on a whim – the evening before the details of our tour were set in stone, I’d been idly remembering a series of British steam locomotives that had been named in the ’30s after various Commonwealth countries, provinces and cities. Amongst them, Gwalior. Not very PC in this insane world of being frightened of offending people, but there was an easy two day slot in our schedule. So, why not? I’m glad we did.The observant amongst you will quickly realise that I’ve skipped Agra and the Taj Mahal. Not. That’s about to happen. In truth, Gwalior probably ought to rank equally with the TM and if you’ve been there before, do replace it on your list of places to see……….

Off-Camera Flash Street Photography with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 | Digby Fullam

As you may or not know, I recently made the decision to swap my DSLR for a mirrorless camera for street photography. One of the huge benefits to using DSLR cameras for photographers – and particularly DSLRs manufactured by the ‘big hitters’ Canon and Nikon – is the massive ecosystem of supported accessories available for these cameras. DSLR technology has well and truly matured now, and the fact that DSLRs have been widely used in the professional sphere for well over a decade means that supported accessories for these cameras (and most importantly a flash system) are easy to come by. By contrast mirrorless cameras as a professional and prosumer tool are newer arrivals on the block, and the flash accessories for these cameras are still developing and being refined…….

West – The Red Centre of Australia . Part 2 | Noah Stammbach

I’ve heard and read about the outback being empty, with not much to see and not worth the travel. We Aussies prefer to live on the coast, leaving the vast interior of Australia as no-man’s land. I yearned to explore this expanse; to be alone in the barren plains and to feel the red spirit of Australia. It was difficult to find people keen for such a huge trip. The first time I met Johnny we talked about ferns and grasses (he’s a landscape architect) which happened to lead to the topic of the outback. We then recruited Koentadi (of @koentadyy) who was ready for his first Aussie roadtrip. Planning began in secret. We wanted to be the first to venture inland; far away from the typical destinations of the NSW coast. Some moments from this trip took me to the edge between calm and panic, but there’s always an unquestionable solace to be found in the middle of nowhere. Click here for part 1 of the trip, a story about the staggering variety of landscapes that unfolds in layers from Sydney to the outback……

What 10 X-Pro 1 Users Would Like to See on the Fuji X-Pro 2 | Mirrorlessons

The Fujifilm X-Pro 1 was the first interchangeable lens camera in the extremely popular line-up of Fujifilm X series cameras, and has become something of an iconic symbol alongside its non-interchangeable brother, the X100. Now, nearly four years on from its release, X-Pro1 users and Fujifilm fans are on tenterhooks awaiting the arrival of its rumoured successor, the X-Pro2. Of course, with so much build-up and high expectations surrounding the arrival of this camera (if and when it arrives), Fujifilm is under a great deal of pressure to satisfy the needs and desires of its user base. Will they be able to make everyone happy? Probably not, as is always the case, but there are certainly a handful of common features that most photographers will want to see on the second iteration. To get a sense for what these features might be, we decided to ask ten X-Pro1 photographers the following question:

Speaking as an X-Pro1 user, what is one update you’d like to see made to the X-Pro2?

Some photographers were less demanding, already satisfied with their X-Pro1, whereas others had many ideas as to how the X-Pro2 could achieve perfection. The one thing they all have in common, however, is their love for and loyalty to the original camera in the X series despite the arrival of newer and more advanced models……..

Photographer Spotlight Interview with Bradley Hanson – Minnesota |
Junebug Weddings

Inspired by films such as Delicatessen and Amelie, Bradley Hanson’s work mimics the visual storytelling of cinematography.  We are constantly moved by his inventive and fresh approach, which doesn’t bend to trends or fads. Honestly, it’s the simplicity of his images that differentiates his work the most. Like the image above, which utilizes simple table items in the foreground rather than the couple. The dramatic use of lighting subtly shifts your perspective of the entire dinner scene. With over 600 weddings under his belt, Bradley’s 16 year career in wedding photography is worth sharing and we hope you will enjoy learning more about this talented Minnesota wedding photographer. Enjoy! ……

Starting at the beginning: Journey to Fuji (s) | Julie Edwards

Maybe the best place to start this new blog is at the beginning. Why did I start using Fuji’s and what has led me to this point. I’m not going to try to explain why these cameras are able to produce such high quality images from what seems comparatively small bodies and lenses, if you want to know that, read this interview with Optical Device & Electronic Imaging Products Manager Takashi Ueno. This is just a potted history of how I came to switch from DSLR’s to Fuji mirrorless cameras. My journey started in November 2011 and the original X100. The first big step with it was a trip I made to Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo 2 months later in January 2012. It was a trip to document some of the work by CARE International in the region and I traveled with DSLR’s as well as the X100. Of the 496 images I came back with, 83 were from the X100. Considering how long I had owned it and how “raw” the camera was, the quality and type of images I came back with from it was a revelation……

Fuji X Lens Astrophotography | Jason Pitcher

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at Astrophotography for ages. One small barrier is that I live in Houston, Texas and light pollution in Southeast Texas is, errr, prolific. A look at the map of light pollution shows that to get anything approaching a dark sky you have to head west – a long way west. So when I knew I had a business trip to San Antonio coming up, with several days there and a modicum of free time, I started planning. Using the extremely good advice from Ian Norman at Lonely Speck, I checked weather and viewing condition forecasts and made a plan to head out of San Antonio on I-10, then drive into the hills to the west. I hunted on google for suitable places, but there isn’t much documented out there, so I wasn’t going to get something interesting in the foreground like some photographers manage. I didn’t mind, this was a learning trip for me. I left San Antonio, headed out to a speck on the map called Garven Store, the headed south on highway 83. At around 00:30, I stopped at a roadcut where I could be safely off the road, and admired the beautiful night sky……..

Inspiration: Thomas Menk | Fuji vs. Fuji

As a reader of this site, you almost certainly already know Thomas Menk as the hardest working guy in Fuji curation. Lately, I’ve been enjoying the appearance his work as a photographer in my Twitter feed even more. While I’ve always enjoyed Thomas’ photography, I really like the the images he’s been posting from a recent workshop in Venice. The processing is sublime. There’s a feel to them that I haven’t seen from him before that stops me from scrolling, and compells me to just enjoy the image…….

Lensbaby For Fujifilm X-Mount | Derek Clark

At last, the Lensbaby system is finally available for Fuji X-Mount cameras. I’ve been holding off for a long time for this to happen, rather than buying a Nikon fit and Nikon adaptor. The only problem was that the combination of Composer Pro and Edge 80 optic that I wanted, didn’t seam to be available. For some reason, the Sweet 35, Sweet 50, Circular Fisheye and Velvet 56 are available for X-Mount, but not the Edge 80. So I contacted Lensbaby direct and they offered to sent what I wanted as a special order. The price was what I would have expected to pay, but if you live in the UK and want to go down this route…BEWARE! UK Customs wear black masks and funny hats. They charged £92 import duty, which to me is not only excessive, it’s blatant theft. But hey, welcome to (not so) Great Britain! Anyway, I digress…….
