Tutorial: Using Film Simulation modes | Marc Horner

Fujifilm knows film. The clue is in the name. And they’ve spent a lot of time and effort bringing classic film traits to life in the current range of digital cameras. Film Simulation ModesEach different Film Simulation mode has unique properties to help you express your creativity without the need for time-consuming post-production. Varying degrees of Saturation and Tonality are composed with just the right balance to bring each Film Simulation mode to life. The camera’s Electronic Viewfinder can show the effects of the selected Film Simulation mode before the shot is taken, and if you shoot RAW, the in-camera RAW processing function allows any of the 11* Film Simulation options to be applied post-capture, broadening your shooting options. Which Film Simulation mode is best for your shot? ……

Life with Fuji – Part 1 | Mac Sokulski

I started with Fuji at the onset, about 4 years ago.  I got my first Fuji X, the Fuji X100 and I really fell in loved that camera.  The looks, the way it worked, the hybrid view finder. Even the little quirks.  I shot one of my boudoir sessions with it.  I remember the client asking if I was going to take any pictures, the camera was so quiet that she didn’t even notice.  Lots of great memories. Then came the X-Pro1, at a sacrifice.  With a heavy heart I sold the Fuji X100.  I have received my X-Pro1 about a week and a half before my family trip to Spain and Scotland.  I had only 3 lenses, old now, the three musketeers 18mm f2, 35mm f1.4, 60mm f2.4.  Coming from Canon cameras, and wide assortment of lenses, I was a little worried that this new Fuji setup is not going to work, that I will be cursing myself for not dragging the big Canon. I was surprised, I did not miss my Canon at all. Everything clicked into place.  Family, landscapes, street photography, everything.   At that time Adobe Lightroom did not recognize Fuji X raw files, and I knew that it will be a great pain to convert all the raw files from Fuji X-Pro1 to Lightroom, using the provided software.  At the last moment I’ve decided to shoot the entire trip in jpg.  It was crazy, but I was more than happy with the results………

Obsessing about lenses……. | Bill Fortney

OK, I admit it, I love lenses, what’s not to love!!!  In the process of trying to capture those glorious moments of interesting subjects and great light, they are what focuses the image onto the sensor!  No single factor has more of an affect on the final image than the lens!  A lens has to do a lot of important things: sharply render the details, keep the color correct, maintain contrast, prevent contrast robbing flare, faithfully capture the intricate variations of color, and much more!!!! Here are a few of my most frequently asked questions about lenses:

1. Are single focal length lenses better than zooms?
2. If the difference is small between zooms and primes, why bother with primes? …..

Substantial firmware updates for the X-T1 (V4.0) – late June |
Fujifilm Global

Fujifilm Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) has announced that it will release a free firmware update for both the Fujifilm X-T1 and Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition in late June, 2015. The firmware introduces a new AF system with upgraded autofocus performance as well as an array of other improvements that reflect feedback from users. This update follows on from a previous major functionality improvement for the X-T1 introduced on December 18th, 2014 and shows that Fujifilm continues to listen to customer feedback to boost the performance of X-Series cameras, ensuring many years of continued use.

 

 

[ Firmware release date ]
Late June, 2015

[ Firmware version ]
FUJIFILM X-T1: Ver.4.00

[ Improvements with this firmware update ]

1. New AF System

  1. New AF system with Zone and Wide/Tracking modes for effortless capture of moving subjects
    The AF System complements the fast and accurate 49-single-point autofocus system with new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes, which use 77 autofocus points across a wider area to substantially improve the camera’s ability to capture moving subjects.
    The Zone mode allows users to choose a 3×3, 5×3 or 5×5 zone from the 77-point AF area. When combined with the AF-C continuous focusing mode, the camera continues tracking a subject at the center of the selected zone. The 3×3 and 5×3 zones at the center, in particular, offer extra-fast focusing with the use of the built-in phase detection pixels.
    In the Wide/Tracking mode, the camera displays the area in focus, identified automatically out of the 77-point AF area (Wide in the AF-S mode) and tracks the focus area’s subject across the entire 77-point AF area (Tracking in the AF-C mode). This makes it possible to maintain focus on a subject that moves vertically, horizontally, and back and forth.
  2. Improvement of AF accuracy
    Single-point AF divides the focus area into smaller sections to more accurately determine the distance to the subject for even greater focusing accuracy. The built-in phase detection pixels have the detection range of 0.5EV, an improvement from the previous 2.5EV, delivering phase detection AF performance that enables fast focusing in low-light conditions and on low-contrast subjects.
  3. Eye Detection AF
    The firmware update provides Fujifilm’s Eye Detection AF, which automatically detects and focuses on human eyes. The function allows you to easily focus on the eyes even in difficult conditions, e.g. when shooting a portrait wide open to obtain a beautiful bokeh background.
  4. Auto Macro mode
    The firmware update introduces the Auto Macro function, which automatically switches the camera into the Macro mode while maintaining the conventional AF speed. You no longer have to press the Macro button to initiate a close-up shot. This update eliminates the Macro function assigned to the Macro Button, allowing you to assign a different function to the button.
  5. AF improvement in the Movie mode
    The optimized algorithm delivers a more natural and smooth AF action during movie recording.

2. Other improvements

  1. Improved Shutter Speed Dial operation
    When the Shutter Speed Dial is set to T and the Shutter Type to Mechanical + Electronic, you can use the command dial to set a full range of exposure times from 30-1/32000sec. Previously, this was limited to 30-2 seconds. This means you can change the shutter speeds across a broader range without having to change camera position. This is particularly useful when shooting in the portrait orientation with the Vertical Battery Grip VG-XT1 attached.
  2. Exposure Compensation control in Manual.
    You can use the Exposure Compensation dial to make exposure adjustments while shooting in the Manual exposure mode with the ISO Auto setting.
  3. Finer lines on the framing grid enhances visibility
    The lines on the framing grid, which you can choose to display in the Screen Set-Up menu, have been made finer making it easier to view the subject.
  4. Name of Silent mode changed to avoid confusion
    The Silent Mode has been renamed to “SOUND & FLASH OFF”.

A Fujiholics Story | Elke Vogelsang

My name is Elke Vogelsang. I’m 42 years old and living and working in Germany. I’m a self-taught photographer, who turned her passion into a profession. When my first own dog, Noodles, joined our family, I felt the need to improve my photography to take pictures which do justice to her beauty and charming character. Two more dogs followed. So, our canine pack consists of Noodles, Scout and Ioli. All three of them are very keen models. My husband fell seriously ill a few years ago at Christmas. He had a brain hemorrhage. The dogs (Noodles and Scout) were the ones who found him in time, so he could be saved. But he spent weeks in a coma, months without any short-term memory and months in hospital. Well, that’s a very long story in very short… My dogs and my photography were my comfort and distraction at that time. Fortunately, my husband recovered fully.……

Does Fuji Cheat with its Sensors? | Nasim Mansurov

When testing cameras, it is not unusual to see a situation when one camera can produce results a bit darker or brighter than another. In some cases, lenses are to blame for this variance, since most lenses cannot ideally transmit all of the incoming light. What this means, is that a lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 could potentially transmit less light, which could be equivalent to say f/3.5 in terms of brightness. The latter number is what is often referred to as a “T-stop”, or Transmission-stop, which is basically an adjusted f-stop that takes into account this light loss. In other cases, the camera itself can be the source of brightness variance. Although manufacturers are supposed to adhere to an ISO standard that guides the process of determining the right brightness level for each ISO, there is usually still some variance between not only brands, but also between specific camera models. We won’t get into the question of why there are such variances. Instead, we will concentrate on implications of such variances to camera sensor comparisons and ratings. Particularly, we will be looking at exposure variances in Fuji cameras, such as the Fuji X-T1. Many photographers, including myself, have been fond of the way Fuji sensors render images, outputting very clean and pleasant-looking images, even at high ISOs. But are those ISOs real? And is Fuji doing something shady to make its images look better? Let’s take a closer look…..
