My dream Fuji X-series travel gadget bag | Tom Grill


 
Like many of you, I have been speculating on what my travel gadget bag would look like if I decided to take only a Fuji X-series with me. Makes sense to speculate as the Fuji X system continues to expand to a point where it can be as compete as many pro DSLR systems that have been around for a long time. Nice thing about the Fuji X is how small it is in comparison. By the end of this year the super-wide angle zoom should be available along with the 23mm f/1.4 and a Zeiss macro so we will have a lot of equipment options available to us. Up until now, I have often taken a Fuji X-Pro1 along with me on trips, but only as a backup camera to a complete Nikon system. I would use the Fuji on those occasions where I wanted to walk around casually and not be encumbered with too much stuff.  A few of my friends along with many readers of this blog have mentioned looking forward to travelling with just a light weight Fuji system instead of a heavy DSLR. That is what started me thinking about what such a system would look like for me…..

Fuji Film or Fuji Digital? A Giveaway! | Rebecca Lily


 
Just for fun, I’m doing a little giveaway here on my blog! As a photographer who shoots both Fujifilm and a Fuji X-E1 digital camera, I’ve had great interest in emulating the pastel look of overexposed, pro lab scanned Fuji Pro 400H film for my digital work to get cohesive results with both mediums. What began as a personal quest has found its way into my upcoming Pro Set II for Lightroom and ACR, which will be released next week. So, here is the challenge: look at the above images (you can click to see them larger). Then post in the comments what you think each image was shot on, Fujifilm Pro 400H, or the Fuji X-E1 post-processed in Lightroom with one of my new Pro presets.

The first one to guess both correctly wins, and gets to choose between:

  • 3 boxes (15 rolls) of 120 Fujifilm Pro 400H
  • My new Lightroom & ACR Pro Set II …

New XC Lenses

In response to market feedback and requests from users, Fujifilm is expanding its line-up of lenses to offer a new category of XC lens. These are “compact and casual” lenses and are perfectly suited to our mid-range X-M1 compact system camera. They feature all-glass elements and are lightweight and portable. In conjunction with its X-M1 compact system camera, Fujifilm announced the launch of the first XC lens, an F3.5-5.6 standard zoom lens that covers a shooting range of 16-50mm (24-76mm**). Today Fujifilm is announcing a second XC lens, an F4.5-6.7 telephoto zoom lens that covers the shooting range of 50mm to 230mm (75-350mm**). This will be available by the end of the year. Fujifilm will continue to strive for the development of lenses that cover a wide range of focal lengths and offer bright and high resolution reproduction even at the periphery, so that users can enjoy the high resolution features of FUJIFILM X-Series cameras…..

Zeiss Touit 12mm F2.8 Review For The Fuji X Series | Patrick Leong


I absolutely LOVE the Zeiss Touit 12mm F2.8.  In fact, I was using it so much, I didn’t get to use the 32mm as much as I wanted to.  Apparently, I wasn’t the only person that had so much love for this lens; two of my family members decided to purchase this lens after checking out my copy.  Using an 18mm is just plain out fun, and there is just so many photographic possiblities with a lens this wide. But it doesn’t stop there because optically, this lens is simply fantastic.  It renders very nicely, and it’s so incredibly sharp.  Optically, I don’t really think you could ask for more from a lens.  A super wide angle lens like this takes some time to get use to, so if you’re not sure if this is a lens for you, go to a good local dealer (I go to Bergen County Camera), and ask them if you could try it out.  Any good dealer will let you shoot with it before you buy, and it might not be such a bad idea, since the asking price is $1,250…..
