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……

Fujifilm updates X mount Lens Roadmap | Fujifilm Global

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) has released an updated roadmap for its X mount interchangeable lenses. Highly regarded for their outstanding image quality, resolution and well-built bodies, Fujifilm’s unique X mount lens range now has three new additions.

The new lenses that have been added to the Fujinon X Mount Lens Roadmap are:

  • NEW XF120mmF2.8 R Macro 1:1 Macro, telephoto lens
  • NEW XF35mmF2 R compact and lightweight standard focal length lens
  • NEW 1.4x Teleconverter for XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR, XF120mmF2.8 R Macro, XF100-400mm

The XF120mmF2.8 R Macro is the second macro lens to be added to the line-up. The XF35mmF2 R, with a standard focal length of 53mm*, is a much anticipated addition to the line-up, aimed at photographers who will appreciate the smaller size and lighter weight. The 1.4x Teleconverter is the first of its kind for the X mount and can be attached to other Fujinon X mount lenses** to extend the focal length by 1.4 times……..

Using the Zone Focusing Method for Street Photography | Chris Gampat

When it comes to street photography, one of the best ways to make sure that you have your subject in focus is to use the zone focusing system. This is also called hyperfocal length focusing; which involves using the depth of field and focusing scale on your camera or lens to get the scene and subject sharply in focus. It’s a tried and true method: Bresson and a number of other famous photojournalists used it to capture some of the most iconic photos. Ever heard the statement “F8 and be there?” Well, that’s pretty much it. To do this, we suggest starting out by stopping the lens down to anywhere between f5.6 and f11. Then as you focus further out from the camera, more of your scene will come into focus…….

Macro Photography with Fuji 16mm Extension Tube | Mac Sokulski

New year, brings new directions.  At least I can hope since a little Fuji addition which was supposed to be a Christmas present arrived well into the new year.  The Fuji 16mm extension tube.  It’s a little piece of hardware that moves your lens away from the camera.  The nice thing is that it has all the electronic contacts, so auto focus works as normal, and the camera knows which lens is attached.  It allows for the lens to focus closer to the subject, which makes practically any lens a macro lens.  The one caveat of the extension tube is that the lens looses focus at about 1 meter.  Then again I was expecting to shoot with this tube normally anyway.  Most of the images were taken with the Fuji 56mm f1.2 and it worked very well as a macro lens.  I also tried my old Pentax 100mm f4 Macro lens.  It worked very well. I wanted to compare the results with a Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro, which is considered a true macro lens as the level of magnification is 1:1.  Both Fuji 60mm Macro and the old Pentax 100mm Macro are only 1:2 which is half the magnification of the Canon lens……

Dear Fuji… this is my wishlist for 2015 | Vassilios Zacharitsev

It has been only short period of time I’ve got involved in Fuji World, but I already own two X cameras; and planning on getting one more Fuji shortly. I have to admit that my excitement with the X-System is much to the amusement of my friends who can randomly tease me about becoming a Fuji fanboy. I hope not; I don’t much like fanboys. I hope this, and any future articles about Fuji are as objective as possible, but always with a dose of genuine concern and interest. So here is my shortlist on what I’d like to see from my newest favorite photographic company, during this new year: Fuji has done a spectacular job in leading the X-System to a high level of competency during the last 3 years or so. The primary area in developing a new system is the lens lineup. Here Fuji already shines, with a lens catalog second only to m43, among mirrorless systems; and all this in a very short amount of time. With the introduction of the 16-55mm pro zoom, plus the expected 90mm f/2 and 16mm f/1.4 there are, honestly, very small gaps to be filled, in fact mainly niche ones. Perhaps a weather sealed 90 or 100mm macro with 1:1 capability? A 200mm f/4 prime? Definitely a 16-70 constant f/4. I can think of very little missing, really. Lets  remind ourselves how easy it is to adapt lenses from other systems to Fuji-X and we can agree that the system is more than fine with lens selection………

Firmware 3.00 for X-T1 / GS | Fujifilm Global

Detail of the update

The firmware update Ver. 3.00 from Ver.1.10 (X-T1) / 2.00 (X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition) incorporates the following issues (X-T1 / X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition):

1. High-speed electronic shutter with a maximum speed of 1/32000sec.
(This function is incorporated in X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition.) The FUJINON XF Lens series lineup includes a number of fast fixed focal length lenses which boast very high sharpness with the aperture wide open, producing excellent out of focus „bokeh“. However, fast apertures are difficult to use if the light is too bright, so to ensure users can create shallow depth-of-field effects, the camera is now equipped with a fully electronic shutter offering a maximum shutter speed of 1/32000sec. The mechanical shutter will not operate at all when any speed for the electronic shutter is selected, which also delivers a completely silent shooting experience; perfect for shots of sleeping children, pets, weddings, and more. In addition, it is possible to set the electronic shutter in 1/3 steps from a range of 1sec to 1/32000sec.

2. Shutter Sound
The shutter sound can be muted if desired. (This function is incorporated in X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition.)

3. Classic Chrome Film Simulation mode brings more creative power to the X Series (This function is incorporated in X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition.)
The X Series‘ Film Simulation modes represent Fujifilm’s wealth of experience in color reproduction technology. New to the suite of effects is Classic Chrome, which delivers subtle colors and beautifully muted tones reminiscent of vintage reversal film. Using Classic Chrome on cityscapes, for example, will give shots a historic feel, while fashion photos gain an emotive, nostalgic look. Classic Chrome strengthens the film simulation line up and enhances the creative power of the X-T1.
 
4. Natural Live View function is just like the naked eye.
One of the great benefits of an electronic viewfinder is that ‚what you see is what you get'; the final image is displayed in real-time so any Film Simulation modes or other effects can be checked while shooting. But users sometimes need to see colors close to how they’re viewed with an optical finder, or to focus on shadow detail, which some high-contrast effects block out. To aid this, the Natural Live View function has been added and, when „PREVIEW PIC. EFFECT“ is turned Off in the menu, an image close to the naked eye is displayed during live view.

5. EVF / LCD Color Control
 
6. AF+MF
„AF+MF“ function enables seamless manual focusing. After half pressing the shutter to autofocus on the subject, fine adjustment can then be made using the manual focus ring.
 
7. Direct selection of AF area
The update will let users select the focus area using the 4-way controller, without pressing the Fn key.

8. Unlocked AE-L / AF-L Buttons
The function of the AE-L / AF-L button is currently locked, but will be interchangeable, depending on the user’s preference.
 
9. Change the size of the Focus frame in the Manual Focus
In the Manual Focus mode, the size of the Focus frame for Instant AF can be changed by the command dial.
 
10. Direct selection of Macro mode
„ON“ or „OFF“ of Macro mode can be directly selected without using the shooting menu.
 
11. Q. Menu customization
To make the Q Menu (used for quick access of frequently-used items) even more efficient, the update will allow its items and layout to be changed to the user’s preference.
 
12. New Video Frame rates (50P / 25P / 24P)
As well as the existing 60fps and 30fps selections, 50fps, 25fps and 24fps options will be available with the update. 50 fps and 25 fps allow video editing in the PAL regions, such as Europe, without converting the frame rate. 24fps offers a cinema-like view.
 
13. Manual Shooting in Video mode
The update will enable ISO sensitivity selection prior to shooting videos, as well as the ability to adjust aperture and shutter speed during movie recording.
 
14. Phase detection AF support for Instant AF
In Instant AF mode, which is operated by pressing the AF-L button during manual focusing, the update will enable Phase Detection AF, providing faster focusing speeds.
 
15. Interlocking of Metering and Focus areas
Users will be able to interlock the AF area position with the Metering area when Spot Metering mode is selected.
 
16. Expansion of shutter speed in Program Shift mode
In the current Program Shift mode, the slowest-speed setting is 1/4sec., but this will increase to a maximum of 4secs.
 
17. Addition of options in Function(Fn) setting
Add „Flash compensation“, „Shutter type“, „Preview Pic. Effect“, „Preview EXP. / WB in Manual mode“ and „Lock“ in „Function“ Setting
 
18. instax Printer Print
Photos can be directly sent from the camera to the Fujifilm instax SHARE Smartphone Printer to instantly print on Fujifilm Instant Color Film „instax mini“.
 
19. Lock Function
Add software lock function during shooting mode. The update will let users prevent from the unexpected dial/button operation.
 
20. Three Custom White Balance
Expand the number of CUSTOM WHITE BALANCE from one to three.
By registering different conditions in advance of the shooting, users can change white balance conditions quickly.
 
21. Expand EVF / LCD displaying types in manual exposure mode
In manual exposure mode, the EVF / LCD are displayed with previewing set shooting conditions. To display, along with a mode of ignoring exposure condition, users will be able to select a mode of ignoring white balance condition.  The update will let users expand variations of external flash photography especially with modeling lights of different color temperature. By registering the function to the Fn button, users will be able to change settings in quick operations.
 
22. PC tethered shooting support
New HS-V5 software (optional accessory) allows users to tether and control the camera from the PC and transfer images shot on the camera over to the PC automatically.
 
23. Change the function of FACE DETECTION in Focus-Frame Selection AF.
When a face is detected, the Focus frame is shown on the face. Otherwise, the position of the Focus frame doesn’t move.
 
24. When pressing AE-L button, exposure is reflected to the live view.
 
25. When AF is locked by pressing AF-L button, the AF lock is held during zooming.
 
26. Add the icon to show RAW shooting is not available when an expanded sensitivity range is selected in RAW shooting. (Currently, the RAW icon disapppears.)
 
27. The settings below in the Setup menu are changed from the description on the Owner’s Manual.
The following settings move into the new „BUTTON / DIAL SETTING“ in the Setup menu.
