Fujifilm launches the FUJINON XF16mmF1.4 R WR | Fujifilm Global

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is proud to announce that a new FUJINON LENS XF16mmF1.4 R WR will be added to the X-Series interchangeable lens line-up in mid-May 2015. The lens has a fixed focal length of 16mm (24mm in 35mm format equivalent) and offers a dramatic wide field of view and stunning optical performance. The F1.4 maximum aperture delivers high image quality in low-light conditions and bokeh-rich macro photography with the minimum working distance of 15cm. Featuring high-speed autofocus, a weather- and dust-resistant structure that can work in temperatures as low as -10°C, and great portability thanks to its compact size, the shooting possibilities are further expanded. The FUJINON fast aperture lens quintet is now complete. The XF16mmF1.4 R WR is the latest addition to the popular XF23mmF1.4 R, XF35mmF1.4 R, XF56mmF1.2 R, and XF56mmF1.2 R APD lens……

Fujifilm Q&A @ CP+ 2015: What next for X-mount | Imaging Resouce

But [for example], while we have provided firmware upgrades for the X100S many times, now we have the X100T, we’re finished, no firmware upgrades [for the X100S] anymore. Makoto Oishi

Continuing my series of executive interviews from the recent CP+ 2015 show in Yokohama Japan, I met with Mr. Makoto Oishi from the Sales & Marketing Division, Optical Device & Electronic Imaging Products Division at Fujifilm Corp. Topics for discussion included the company’s X-mount mirrorless camera plans, first and third-party glass for X-mount cameras, and Fuji’s unusually generous firmware update philosophy. Perhaps most interesting to me, though, was an insight into how Fuji sees 4K video capture and its place in the market — doubly so when Oishi-san turned the tables and I briefly became the interviewee, sharing my own thoughts on the adoption of ultra high-def video.

(As always, we’ve done some editing to the dialog to remove conversational glitches and make the text scan better. Places where we’ve inserted a word or changed the phrasing for better readability are enclosed in square braces and italicized. So, too, are comments of my own, reading between the lines of the discussion.) ……

Nikon to Fujifilm X | One Year After the Switch | Rick Lewis

This Blog post may surprise a few of my friends and colleagues, as I have not made a big deal of switching to a completely new, (for me), camera system.  I had been a Nikon shooter since a teenager in 1967.  I started with a Nikkormat FS in 1967.  It didn’t have a light meter but it was all I could afford at 15 years of age.  Over the years I acquired a Nikkormat FTn, Nikkormat EL, Nikon F2 Photomic, Nikon D70, Nikon D200, Nikon D3, D3s, and finally the D4. During the spring and summer of 2013 I began an email conversation with a very well known commercial photographer and teacher, Will Crockett.  I read or watched a Blog post of his describing the changes he saw coming in photography.  They centered around mirrorless cameras and their ability to capture stills and video.  I was intrigued by his insights so I emailed him.  We corresponded and discussed the pros and cons of Olympus, Panasonic, and Fujifilm cameras.  I told him I was much more interested in still photography and didn’t really care about video.  He recommended I look into Fuji cameras.  He then offered to loan me one of his Fujifilm X-Pro1’s along with the “kit lens”, (18-55mm f2.8-f4, OIS) and the 60mm f2.4 macro……

Q+A: Fuji X on Assignment | David duChemin

You’d be amazed how many emails and comments I get that begin with the words, “I know you don’t like gear questions, but…” So to be clear, I don’t mind gear questions at all. I just don’t know why people think I’m the best person to answer them. I like gear. Hell, I LOVE some of my gear. But I ask of it some very specific, and limited things, and some of the people asking some of the questions are looking for a tool that can do the things that they themselves should be doing. Or maybe they’re looking for a justification to buy a new toy that maybe, just maybe, has the Un-Suck Filter. They don’t. My Fujis don’t, and neither do my Leicas or Nikons.  What I want my cameras to do is get out of the way as quickly as possible and let me do my job. So with that in mind, a few responses to some very sensible questions (I’ll spare you the non-sensical questions like: Should I get a Fuji? No one can answer that for you. Fuji. Leica. Nikon. Canon. All of them will make incredible photographs as easily as truly bad ones.)……

Complete report from the Fujifilm stand at CP+ 2015 | Gritty Monkey

CP+ is always an exciting time for Fujifilm users, as we usually get a pick to some of the upcoming X-series products, way before they hit the market. Granted, this is mainly work-in-progress, so there might be changes down the road (such as the infamous “no-OIS on the final version of the XF16-55mmF2.8″ incident), but still the refreshed lens roadmap always gives a welcome clarity on the big picture (no pun intended!). To me, and the long queue of people waiting for their turn, the highlight of Fujifilm’s stand at each CP+ is always the lens bar, where you can choose any XF lens that has already been officially released (so up to the XF16-55mmF2.8 this year), and try it on the X-series body of your choice. You can also try the X100’s line or Fuji’s compact cameras, if that is what you are interested in. This year, Fujifilm had set up a stage with a Harley Davidson and a 2 models wearing high boots and tiny leather shorts posing around it. I want to make 2 quick comments about it…….

Zoom! Zoom! | Tim Bray

In re­cent days I’ve bought two new Fu­ji­film lens­es. The choic­es weren’t easy and I’m far from con­vinced I did the right thing. Have a look and see what you think. 10-24 · Back be­fore Christ­mas I bought the (take a deep breath, of­fi­cial name here) Fu­ji­non XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS Wide An­gle Zoom Lens. It was sort of on im­pulse; new job, Christ­mas com­ing, felt in the mood for a toy, stum­bled across a great deal in a lo­cal cam­era shop. By way of back­ground, it’s one of the few Fu­ji­nons that’s out­side the fo­cal range of the two lens­es I orig­i­nal­ly picked up back in March 2013, the 18-55mm and the 35mm F1.4. It’s as­ton­ish­ing­ly, mind-bogglingly wide. You can stand right in front of a fair-sized tree and cap­ture the whole thing……

Metz releases the Mecablitz 26AF-1, TTL flash for Fujifilm cameras |
Michael Archambault

The lack of digital flash units that work with Fujifilm’s TTL system are an example of how our favorite company has a bit of catching up to do within their lighting ecosystem. Up until now, if consumers wanted an external TTL flash, they were limited to specially designed units by Fujifilm themselves. Now, Metz has announced the upcoming availability of their Mecablitz 26AF-1, a digital TTL flash for Fujifilm system cameras. The Metz Mecablitz 26AF-1 is a digital flash that offers full TTL compatibility, along with a wireless slave TTL functionality. The unit runs on two AAA batteries and has a guide number of 85 at ISO 100 and 85mm. The unit can be tilted 90-degrees upward for bouncing light off surrounding structures. As a bonus, the flash unit contains a LED video light with two different output levels…….

CP+ 2015 – Day one | Fujifilm

Japan’s annual photography convention sees all of the big players in the photography market under the huge roof of the Pacifico Convention Centre in Yokohama, just south of Tokyo. Obviously the reason I’m here is because Fujifilm have once again put on an amazing stand, showing off all aspects of the business. In 2014, we took a bit of a gamble by placing four European photographers on a stage and asked them to tell the Japanese public what they did. The talks were in English and then translated into Japanese by the lovely Hiroe Kubuki from Fujifilm Tokyo. This meant that the photographers were not able to talk as freely and as flowingly as they would normally like and we were not sure how the crowds at CP+, which is a very Japanese show, would take to this. It turns out they took to it incredibly well. Large crowds, lots of questions at the end, laughs at the jokes throughout, and rapturous applause at the end helped us see that the gamble paid off. Fast forward twelve months and we’ve done it again…….

Bague d’allonge macro Fujifilm MCEX-11 | K-pture

Je ne suis pas friand de la photo macro, bien que je l’apprécie. La macro demande du temps et beaucoup de patience. Elle et moi ne faisons généralement pas bon ménage. Posséder un objectif macro n’est pas obligatoire pour du reportage (mariage, corporate, etc.), mais c’est parfois nécessaire pour immortaliser certains détails qui font partie intégrante de l’endroit et de la journée. J’aime les détails et j’aime rendre hommage aux personnes qui ont parfois passé plusieurs heures à les peaufiner et qu’au final peu de gens verront. Alors, dois-je acheter un objectif macro pour l’utiliser quelques fois par an ? L’investissement n’est pas énorme (on se comprend). À l’heure actuelle, Fujifilm ne propose qu’un objectif macro : le Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R. Il se trouve aux alentours de 530 €. Un second objectif macro viendra s’ajouter à la liste en 2016 : le Fujinon 120mm f/2.8 R. Tentant, mais je n’ai pas envie d’attendre plus d’un an et je n’ai aucune idée du prix. Une chose est sûre, il coûtera plus de 530 €. Bref, je passe mon tour……
