What to Expect From the X-Series in 2016 | Rob Zeigler

As the final days of 2015 come to a close it’s only fitting to look ahead and see what 2016 will bring to the Fuji X-Series. New cameras and new lenses are just on the horizon, but what else might we expect from Fuji, and what other ways might we get some added incentive to being X-Series users? Let’s take a closer look at what we can expect in 2016 and share a bit of speculation about what might be just around the bend. WHAT WE KNOW: X-PRO2. The cat is pretty much out of the bag on this one. It’s no secret that Fuji would eventually update their flagship rangefinder style interchangeable lens camera, but now all signs strongly point to a mid-January 2016 reveal. The strongest evidence for this was actually a slip by Magnum Photos in mid-November……

Ultimate Landscape – Part1: X-Series Kit | Pete Bridgwood

With their X-series cameras, Fujifilm are creating the ultimate tools for Landscape Photographers. The soulful images created by X-trans sensors have a characteristic ‘feel’ that’s impossible to achieve using anything else. X-series cameras are also incredibly intuitive, they are a joy to use, and that translates into a more emotive overall experience; the landscape ‘aesthetic’ is no longer so restricted to experience of the final print, but extends right back to the image capturing stage, on location. Given such tantalising possibilities of artistic enlightenment, it’s no surprise that so many photographers are making the switch to Fuji, but for many Landscape Photographer converts, these are often secondary discoveries. The decision to switch systems is often driven by the massive size and weight advantages of the X-series cameras over their outdated alternatives……

Malfunction in the Firmware ver.4.20 | Fujifilm X-T1 |
Fujifilm Global

We have found a malfunction in the firmware ver.4.20 launched on December 17 2015, which rarely causes freeze when shooting in AF-C mode. So we will suspend the disclosure of this firmware right away. We apologize for your inconvenience which this may cause. We will post an upgraded firmware around the end of January 2016 to solve it. As a tentative solution for customers who have upgraded their cameras to firmware ver.4.20, we have prepared the new firmware version of 4.21 whose functions are same as the previous version of 4.10. Please update your cameras to ver.4.21 to avoid the malfunction……

On Mobile Photography and Landscapes | Bryan Minear

Phoblographer: You’re a Fujifilm X series camera user and you use the iPhone. What makes these options attractive to you?

Bryan: Definitely a combination of portability and image quality. The first time I ever held the original X100 in my hands, I felt an almost organic connection to the camera that I never had with Canon DSLRs. I was a gearhead pixel-peeper that touted “full frame for life” for a long time, but once I started shooting with Fuji X Cameras, that stuff didnt seem to matter much anymore. Those cameras began something of a personal artistic renaissance for me……..

The Elk of Moraine Valley | Elk & Aspens | Kevin Makowski

RMNP was recently named as one of “10 places to see while you still can” by National geographic traveler. the reason being that the park’s tree line could creep up its mountains 250 feet for every degree of future warming, crowding out tundra meadows as it moves. one tree that might not make the journey is the aspen, which is more stressed by heat and drought than hardier conifers. Why to see it now: A recent report predicted that more than half the aspen stands in the central rockies could be gone by 2060…..

Review: Fuji Pro Rental Service + Q&A with Fujifilm |
Rob Zeigler

Let’s face it: modern camera equipment can get expensive. All of this highly sophisticated gear sells for hundreds and even thousands of dollars a piece, and as a result it’s become a wise move to rent before you purchase to make sure you’re comfortable with your choice. Fujifilm, already well known for their ability to listen to their users, now offers the Fuji Pro Rental Service that allows you to rent lenses, and even camera bodies, before you swipe that credit card for the full amount. I took the service for a spin and wanted to share my thoughts on the experience with you. Stay tuned at the end of the review for a special Q&A with Dan Scarola at Fujifilm about the program and what we might expect from Fuji in the future…….

HandeVision announces five lenses for its Iberit family | Damien Demolder

German/Chinese optics brand HandeVision is set to introduce five new lenses next year that are designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras. Each with a maximum aperture of F2.4, the focal lengths the company is planning to release in its Iberit series will be 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm and 90mm. The company says it has concentrated on making the lenses small and lightweight to suit small and light cameras, but has used brass, aluminum and stainless steel in the construction of the barrels and mounts. The lenses, which look more than a little like Leica M lenses, are all manual focus and offer aperture rings with markings for F2.4-16. Although they have a 44mm imaging circle that covers a full frame sensor, the lenses will be released with mounts for APS-C cameras, such as the Sony NEX and Fuji X system. These lenses will offer electronic aperture control. The 35mm, 50mm and 75mm lenses have six-blade apertures, while the iris in the 90mm uses 10. There is no specification as yet for the 24mm lens…….

Making a Small picture into a Big picture | Adobe Photoshop CC |
Leigh Miller

Here is a question I get asked a lot: How do I make a low resolution picture larger so that I can make a print? If he can do that, surely a well captured file from just about any camera will yield good results from upscaling providing you can accept some compromises in quality. Here I have a file from a 16 Megapixel Fujifilm X-T1 camera. The resulting RAW (RAF) file has a native dimension of 4896 x 3264, more than enough for quality prints at 20 x 30″ and with a careful workflow, even larger. The internet forums are abuzz with chatter about the lack of Megapixels the camera has when compared to say…a Canon EOS 5D MKIII. Most who wax-poetic about it probably do little to no printing over the 8X10 standard. They probably aren’t aware that many billboards in the near past were made with files from cameras in the 8 to 12MP range. Cameras like the venerable Canon EOS 5D Classic……..
