A year with a Pro- one year on with the Fuji X-Pro1 | SUBERASHI

A year ago I jumped ship from being a Canon user to the world of Fuji and CSC cameras. Having dabbled with the very cool Olympus PEN range I was sure someone would deliver a camera with a smaller footprint than my now long gone 5dMKii but similar performance in the real world for whatever shoot I was getting paid for. As a working product photo guy image quality was ultra important so I couldn’t get the decision wrong. Well a year on and I haven’t missed the Canon gear, missed the camera snobbery that comes with having a big old DSLR, more than anything it’s made me love taking photos more also some cool looks from folk when they see the size of camera but then the image slickness. No it’s not full frame no, it doesn’t have 4k but it has soul bags of soul. From product work in the studio to landscape or street work work its been stellar. Perfect? no focusing can be a tad slow, not as bad as Facebook or Twitter knowledge trolls will have you think. Batteries can be greedy on use but any shooter worth his salt never leaves home with just on cell right? Lightroom works a treat with the RAW files as does Camera RAW. In the Studio it has excelled on projects that needed control of lighting and using it with triggers was and is a breeze. Have used cheap ebay triggers and Pocket Wizard set ups and again the little black box just gets on with it………

Red Kite Stages | Electric Lemonade

Having photographed motorsport professionally for over 15 years with various Canon film and digital SLR cameras I was keen to try the Fujifilm X-T1 for rally photography and ventured deep into Wales last weekend for the Red Kite Stages. My ‘standard’ lens for shooting rallies was always a 70-200mm f2.8 but now that I photograph mainly landscapes I no longer need such fast aperture lenses and use the Fujinon XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS. This relatively inexpensive lens has given some stunning results on both the X-T1 and X-E1 cameras but I wasn’t expecting miracles from it in a welsh forest in the middle of winter. For landscape work I always use the X-T1 in manual focus using the excellent depth of field scale in the electronic viewfinder (EVF) as well as the dual screen mode and focus peaking, so my AF experience with it was limited. I had read a lot on the ‘interweb’ about the X-T1’s failure to lock on to moving subjects in the AF-C continuous focus mode and indeed if the camera is left at the default settings it does have a tendency to hunt for focus and often I found that the car had gone past before it locked on…if at all! There were 5 things I changed that solved this problem, set the AF mode to area, increase the focus area to the maximum size (150%), change the AF-C priority selection from focus priority to release priority, set the drive mode to continuous high (CH 8 frames per second) and finally turn off the face detection…….

Full Review: Fujifilm X100T in Hong Kong | Bigheadtaco

CONCLUSION 

The X100T is great because it has an x factor that other cameras don’t have. It’s more than the sum of its functions and features and technology. You have to shoot with it to completely understand. X photographer Kale Friesen himself had the X100T for the previously mentioned photo-walk, and I asked him why he chose it over the other Fujifilm cameras. He said because he can take it anywhere with him and that it inspires him to want to shoot. Yes he has a full DSLR setup for his studio work, but walking around the city, getting coffee, hanging out with friends, who wants to lug around a DSLR? Who even wants to lug around a compact ILC? Not me. The X100T feels comfortable around my neck all day. The X100T has everything that a serious photographer wants, but in a package that can be taken anywhere. Every camera and every format and system has some sort of compromise, so its a matter of finding the features and functions you want the most and find the camera that best satisfies those requirements……

Fuji XF16-55mm 1:2.8 R LM WR | Leigh Miller

They must be taking a few pages out of the Apple playbook: Create something that’s easy for people to love. Once you have their attention, keep on giving them a steady stream of the good stuff. From iPod to Macs legions of buyers line up overnight to get the latest one. Fuji pulled that one off with the Xpro1 and X100. I have friends who despite upgrading to the XT-1 and X100S/T…retreat to those older cameras on occasion out of pure love. Only Leica used to make photographers behave like that. Although I wasn’t initially sold on the system partly because of the workflow issues, they slowly won me over with the lenses and continuous improvements to the camera lineup via firmware. For most working professionals there are two lenses that stand out, a 24-70 and 70-200mm. With those you can cover pretty much any situation from portraits to landscapes. We also like the constant F/2.8 aperture for low-light and control over depth of field…….

Tom Lanzrath testet das Fujinon XF 23 mm f/1.4 | Kwerfeldein

Mit der Fuji habe ich für mich die Fotografie neu entdeckt. Ich hatte zuerst einige Vorbehalte: Elektronischer Sucher, Klappdisplay etc. Das waren alles Dinge, mit denen ich mich nicht anfreunden konnte oder wollte. Jedoch sind es jetzt gerade diese beiden Features, die mir am meisten Spaß machen. Das „Überkopf-Knipsen“ auf Veranstaltungen gelingt mit dem Klappdisplay nun wesentlich besser und der elektronische Sucher ist so schnell wie der optische. Ein großer Vorteil ist dabei auch, dass man die korrekte Belichtung und das fertige Bild durch den Sucher bereits erkennen kann, der künstliche Horizont hilft beim Bildaufbau und noch vieles andere. Die Informationsfülle ist enorm, ich nehme mir dadurch mehr Zeit für die Bildgestaltung. Die Fuji ist eine ruhige Kamera, diese Bezeichnung trifft es wohl am besten……

The Poor Mans Leica, FUJI X100S | Drew Hopper

After months of research and anticipation I finally purchased a Fuji X100S, and in short, it would have to be my best photography purchase to date. I wasn’t sure whether I’d like it as much as my eyes fancied the retro styling of the X-series cameras, but after two weeks of owning, holding and shooting with the X100S – I’m one happy camper. The slick retro style with simple analog dials, practical and dedicated aperture control on the lens and dead silent shutter tick all the boxes for me. This little baby is capable of producing stunning images, which it continues to do effortlessly even in JPEG and blows my mind every time. The Fuji’s have a real sense of heritage, probably how it got the name ‘The Poor Mans Leica’. There’s definitely an emotional connection when holding the X100S, it’s almost timeless in its mannerism. Just looking at the camera stimulates the senses and inspires expression of interest and the desire to go shooting. Before getting the Fuji I never really understood the ‘hype’ of them, but at the same time I never really felt much connection with my DSLR either. I believe it’s opened new avenues, a passion driven by integrity that will transport me on a new journey whether that be physically or mentally – this is the camera I will want by my side 24/7……

The Fuji XF 16-55 LM WR | Adam King

Today may be Friday the 13th, but it is also the first day after the US embargo on delivery of Fuji newest XF Zoom, the FUJINON XF 16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR. I had pre-ordered and arranged for overnight delivery. So I am one of the few with this thing already in hand.  I have a concert lined up for tonight that I’m shooting (G. Love and Special Sauce at the House of Blues Chicago), so the first samples will wait until the follow-up to this in the next couple days. What I can offer are a few shots of the gear, and some very early impressions. This is the first Fuji lens that actually feels large to me. The 18-135 and 55-200 felt slim, and even the 50-140 felt quite compact for the range and aperture it was covering. This feels quite substantial. It carries a 77mm filter size, and weighs in at 655 grams (1.4 lbs).  It still holds a “mirrorless advantage” over similar range and aperture such at the Canon EF 24-70 2.8 at 805g (1.77 lbs) but it is actually heavier than some like the Canon EF 24-70 F4 IS which comes in at 600g (1.32lbs) AND includes image stabilization. In full frame equivalence the Fuji would be a 24-84mm F4.  (The math on the aperture is less accepted but I’m not here to argue that. Call it 2.8 if you want)…….

Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro Review | Peecee Studio

The Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro is Fuji’s only macro lens for the Fujifilm X system and is the only option unless you opt for the much more expensive Zeiss 50mm f/2.8 Macro. It gives an equivalent angle of view as a 90mm lens on full-frame. Weighing in at 215g, it’s a good, lightweight option for a short telephoto prime lens or as a macro lens for doing food, product or the like where normal lenses don’t focus quite close enough. Despite its slower f/2.4 aperture, it’s still faster than Fuji’s professional zooms such as the 50-140mm f/2.8 OIS, meaning it’s perfect for use in most conditions but the dimmest lit areas. Unlike the Zeiss and most other macro lenses on other systems, the Fuji 60mm f/2.4 Macro only has a 0.5x magnification ratio, meaning that it is not “true 1.0x macro”, however, since the Fuji X system uses an APS-C sensor, a 0.5x magnification would be similar to a 0.75x magnification on full-frame. This level of magnification is enough for most things apart from small bugs and detail shots of flowers……….

Fuji 18mm F2 | K-pture

This small 18mm F2.0 is a leading Fuji XF targets placed on the market and therefore one of the oldest with the 35mm F1.4 . It is built entirely of metal, including his visor, which has the same look as the film 35 mm. Become rare thing today at Fuji as all shades are made of plastic. The aperture (f /) is controlled directly on the lens. The gear seems to me neither too soft, as is the case on all 14mm F2.8 I’ve tried, not too strong, maybe even too much. As for the development of wheel it seems quite smooth and precise. Thank you, by the way, to “focus peaking” X-E2. The front lens does not move when in focus as the 35mm. The 18mm is stationary. It is relatively quiet; more than 35mm is more noisy (this is relative). Fuji 18mm F2.0 is not too much angle (~ 27 mm). This is a rather special focal apart. It can therefore be used for group photos and landscapes, but also for the “not too close” portrait to avoid deforming the subject; as well as for street photography (although I know some street photographers swear by the 35mm focal length [23mm Fuji]……..

Review Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R | Anno Huidekoper

The Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R has very few competitors. Brands like Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina do not produce any lenses with the Fuji mount. Zeiss makes the Touit 12 mm f/2.8, and Samyang, a 16 mm f/2.0. The latter, however, does not have auto focus. From the brand itself, the Fujinon XF 10-24 mm f/4.0 almost comes close. If you’re going for high brightness and limited weight, then the 14 mm Fujinon XF premier reviewed here is more interesting than that zoom, though. The Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R is the most wide-angle premier from Fuji and reminds me of my Nikon F2AS, which I once had. The brightness, the size and the field of view are nearly identical, and I have a weakness for the field of view of roughly 90 degrees diagonally. We reviewed this Fujinon 14 mm lens in combination with the Fujifilm X-E2. This is the successor of the X-E1, a camera with an electronic viewfinder and the appearance and ease of use of a camera with an analog rangefinder……
