My affair with Fuji… | Bill Gekas

As most people know I’ve been shooting with the Pentax system since I started photography when I was shooting film using a Pentax ME-Super and K1000 bodies which I still have in some cupboard somewhere. I never considered switching systems as the Pentax system was always adequate for what I was doing and once they brought out their digital bodies I continued with their digital cameras as I could use my older manual focus prime lenses on their latest bodies. By that time I also had invested enough into the system that switching to any other system would have been a costly exercise with no real gain or benefit with my work so i’ve been happily doing what I do with the system, but after almost 20 years of shooting with Pentax i’m now at a crossroads…..

Fuji X100T long(ish) term user report | Andrew Tobin

A couple of months ago I was having that urge to own another Leica M. You may know what I’m talking about – it’s very hard to resist. I went as far as visiting a few of the second hand retailers in London like Aperture, RG Lewis and Richard Caplan. I loved my M9 but in the end I couldn’t justify it so sold it on, happily before prices dropped like a stone with the M240 release. The image quality from the Zeiss Planar 2/50 I put on it was something else, but it was the user experience that I enjoyed more than anything. People talk about the simplicity of the picture-taking experience with a Leica rangefinder and it’s true – it’s very engaging and rewarding, even though you could take a fairly indistinguishable picture with many other cameras……..

A Modern Classic – Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens | Mirrorless Minutes

Being retired I have a lot of time to think about silly things. I have often thought if I was only allowed to have one lens on my Fuji X-T1 which one would I choose. The three lenses that immediately came to mind were the XF 23mm f/1.4 R, the XF 35mm f/1.4 R and the XF 56mm f/1.2 R.  Each one of these lenses are splendid examples of the lens making art and Fuji has been making outstanding lenses for a very long time. At first I thought my choice would be the 35mm focal length which equates to approximately 50mm on an APS-C sensor camera.  It’s a reasonable focal length and to most people this represents the normal field of view for human eyesight. Then I started thinking about how much I love my Fuji X100 fixed lens camera which is equipped with a 23mm f/2.0 lens that gives the field of view of a 35mm lens on an APS-C sensor camera (actually to be perfectly honest if I was only allowed to have one camera any one of the X100/X100S/X100T series of cameras would be it). So that led me to the conclusion that if I was only allowed one lens the 23mm would be it……..

Fuji X100T Review | Switch to Manual

Conclusion

The X100T is a beast to learn. Don’t think you’re going to know this camera overnight; you’re not. You don’t have scene modes to work with and there’s only “auto” setting (Program). You’re going to have to work a bit to get know how the X100T works. I know I still have a lot to learn about how this thing focuses and how to take best advantage of the custom settings. Read the manual. Read all the reviews you can. Learn this thing. Be patient. You’ll be rewarded for sure. I think this is one of the best cameras I’ve owned in the over 35 years I’ve been shooting. Being that I’ve spent more of my life shooting film than digital in that time, I believe Fujifilm has done a fantastic job of blending the two genres. The camera reminds me of the rangefinder film cameras of old, while giving me all the great advantages of digital capture. It’s a great “every day” camera but I haven’t been afraid of using it on a job (which I did the first week I got it – not recommended, but the results were great)…….

Living With The Fuji X-T1 | Luminous Landscape

Back in October I published an article about my experience with the Olympus E-M1.  As you learned from the article, I really liked the Olympus, my experience with it but even more so the images I made with it.  At the end of that article, I mentioned I was going to take the Fuji XT-1 on my next trips and work with it.  So, I was off and running.  First stop was Chicago, followed by a trip to Scotland and then Amsterdam.  I felt this was a good opportunity to put the X-T1 through its paces.  Wow, did I have fun with this camera. The Fuji X-T1 made its debut earlier this year, and it was received extremely well by photographers.  I jumped on the Fuji band wagon with the introduction of the X100 and then quickly migrated to a full Fuji X-1Pro system with three lenses.  I loved the X-1Pro as it brought back the nostalgia of shooting with a rangefinder, but with all the modern day features of auto-focus, auto-exposure, and a very clever hybrid viewfinder……….

Fujinon 10-24mm | Jorge F Marques

So, let’s talk about the Fujinon 10-24 mm f/4. I had mixed feelings about this lens at first, primarily  because I enjoyed the Canon 16-35 mm f/2.8 II so much. There’s always some pain when we decide to change systems (or anything in our lives, I guess), so Fuji had big shoes to fill. Again, this is not a technical review. There are many people that talk about chromatic aberrations, distortions and falloff, so if that’s what you want you’d better stop here. I only intend to talk about the results I achieved and, frankly, whether or not it gives me what I need. In one word, yes. It isn’t perfect, but yes. My main concern is the flare. Although beautiful at most times, it’s a bit excessive when shot at direct sunlight and it can be an issue. It’s definitely hard to control and much more unpredictable than my previous experiences with wide angle lenses.  Another thing that never happened to me was the reflection of the letters in the front of the lens on the filter. So if you use one (I always use a UV in all my lenses), beware that it can show up in your pictures in direct sunlight. A problem? Not really, but rather a inconvenience………

One Year with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Peter Dareth Evans

The above photo – taken a couple of days after grabbing the X-Pro1 with the bundled 18mm f/2 lens, that was when I kind of fell in love. It’s plenty sharp with beautiful colours and a natural filmic character to its unobtrusive noise at high ISO. What’s more, the quiet shutter-click and compact old school styling made it completely unobtrusive. After a chat about the curious camera, the blacksmith just let me work the scene, with nary a further glance. Yes, it’s been one year now that I’ve been shooting with my X-Pro1. Here are some thoughts on my time with Fuji’s first X-Trans camera and how I’ve found the shooting experience, and whether it might be the right camera for you…

Fujifilm X100T Review | Digital Photography Review


Overall conclusion

The ‘T’ in X100T is generally taken to mean ‘third,’ reflecting the camera’s iterative nature. This presents two ways of looking at the camera: as the highest point in the X100 series’ evolution to date, or a warmed-over X100S to let camera stores stick a ‘New’ badge next to it on the shelf. Having used the camera for several months, we’re able to take sides on that question. The X100 was a breakthrough camera, when it first appeared: making good on the large sensor, small camera idea first pursued by Sigma. It was attractive, engaging and capable of taking beautiful images. Did I say engaging? Perhaps ‘infuriating’ is a better word. It was a potentially great camera, riddled with quirks and inconsistencies. However, Fujifilm continued to develop the camera’s firmware (even after it was discontinued), and the X100 today much closer to being the classic that its looks imply. The X100T is a continuation of that process of polish and refinement. Whether it’s the addition of Wi-Fi, the provision of 1/3rd stop increments on the aperture dial or the move to dedicated directional buttons, rather than the cheap-compact style wheel on the back of the camera, there are plenty of changes that make the camera better. Equally, the addition of an electronic shutter option and a greater degree of camera customization make a big difference to how you can use the camera. Oddly the biggest change (the in-viewfinder tab) is the one that makes the smallest difference to the shooting experience. Regardless of how I used it, I didn’t find it added much to the shooting experience…….

Fuji 50-140mm review: A wonderfuly fast telephoto | Olivier Duong

Conclusion

The Fuji 50-160mm is an amazing lens. It’s beautiful, fast and has great stabilization. It allows you to get very close and personal without physically doing so. If you are used to wider angles, the change is pretty radical, but once you get use to it, the lens is magic with superb performance and creamy Bokeh……..

Fuji 16-55mm review: An excellent versatile lens | Olivier Duong

Conclusion

In short, if you are not into primes (or even if you are…), this is THE lens to get. It’s not as portable as some other Fuji lenses like the 18mm, but it more than makes up for it in terms of image quality and speed. The close focus capabilities are the icing on the cake. This is the kind of lens that you can glue it to your camera and not use much any lens for quite some time…….
