Test: Fujifilm X100T | Klaus Zellweger

Die Edel-Kompakte von Fujifilm geht in die dritte Runde. Auch dieses Mal haben es die Japaner geschafft, dieser eigenwilligen Kamera ein paar einzigartige Funktionen zu spendieren. Äusserlich ist die X100T vom Vorgängermodell kaum zu unterscheiden. Und das ist auch gut so, denn das Retro-Design beschert dem Fotografen eine hervorragende Ergonomie. Das Magnesium-Gehäuse ist hochwertig verarbeitet und fühlt sich grundsolide an. Verschlusszeit, Blende und Belichtungskorrektur werden mechanisch justiert – ein Wohltat für alle, die winzige Tasten und endlos verschachtelte Einstellungen am Display gründlich satt haben. Die X100T wird mit einem externen Netzteil geliefert. Der Akku kann aber auch via USB in der Kamera geladen werden……

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……

Fujinon XF 16-55mm F/2.8 | Initial Thoughts | SLR Lounge

Fuji 16-55mm F/2.8 Quick Hits

  • Great Build Quality
  • Super Sharp
  • Love the weather sealing
  • Fits/Balances well on my X-T1
  • Zoom and Focus are smooth, Aperture Ring feels good, too (Nice and clicky!)

I am excited to give this lens a full run through here over the next couple of weeks. I have a big shoot planned for this upcoming Sunday, so hopefully I am able to use the lens there to get some great images. Stay tuned for that and the full review coming up! If you are interested, and want to get your hands on this lens ASAP.  Like I said at the beginning of the post, these are supposed to start shipping within the next week or two (I believe), so get your name on the list……

Hello Leica M8 | Calogero Randazzo

I was shooting with Fuji X-Pro 1, X-E2 and the X-100, when I had the chance to rent a Leica M8 with a Voigtländer 35mm and a 50mm Summicron. For years I was looking for a Rangefinder but ended up to go with the Fuji X-Series (which are not Rangefinders). The built quality of the body and Leica lenses are unique, the simplicity and “nothing stands in the way between you and the subject”. X-100 and X-Pro 1´s Optical VF been good, but Leica and the manual focusing is another experience. I found myself more emotional connected with the scene and subject, therefore shooting different.  This is difficult to explain and it´s worth to experience yourself. The Image quality is stunning. First I thought, 10 MB and a 9 year old CCD sensor without an AA filter can´t be that good. In digital that is a really ancient sensor…….

Leica M 240 Review | Craig Fleming

It’s not really a question I needed to ponder over for too long. Leica cameras are the dream machines of many a snapper, young and old, and I’ve never seen a camera get so much attention. Understandably, a lot of people thought I was shooting film. From the front, the M looks – to all intents and purposes – exactly like a rangefinder from my childhood, and possibly many years before that. The look of surprise on everybody’s face when I announced its digital pedigree, whilst spinning it round to show them the back, never failed to make me smile. After the surprise had worn off and I’d explained what it was, most people wanted to hold it. I’ve used many cameras over the years from 10 x 8s, 5 x 4s and Mamiya RB67s right up to the latest Canons, but nothing has ever generated such interest as the Leica. I’ve spoken a number of times about how being a photographer doesn’t mean what it used to – not to me, anyway……

Review: Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R | Tomasz Trzebiatowski

It’s time for my first review. Well, let me say it upfront: I am not a technology freak and – that’s for sure – I am not a pixel-peeper. For me a piece of equipment simply is (or is not) an extension of my photographic eye. It either helps me or does not help me with expressing and presenting my artistic vision. I simply like it or not. After starting to use the Fuji X-T1 mirrorless camera a couple of weeks ago, I quickly had a look at the Fuji offering of lenses. After doing my research and listening to the opinions of those on the net, who I respect, I realised that there is quite an amazing line-up of top quality Fujinon lenses out there. What’s even better – there are some great prime lenses available. Trying to build up a strong, but compact set of primes, which would allow me to cover various photographic opportunities, I started my Fujinon collection with two of their primes: the XF 23mm f/1.4 and the XF 56mm f/1.2. The second one is the hero of today’s review……

2 years of mirrorless shooting | Philipp Winter

About 2 years ago i made a difficult but rational decision. I decided to let go the most desired camera model i ever owned, the Canon 5D Mark 2. Not just the body, but my complete set of lenses and accessoires i purchased all the years before. I seriously love this camera. I captured so many lovely shots with it, carried it to the highest mountains and to far shores and took some great family videos with it. But as time went by, the big camera bag stayed at home more often. I didn’t wanto to carry around all the lenses, the big camera body, and taking pictures in public made everyone look at the guy with the big ass camera. I definitively prefer to stay in the background. So these images were the last ones to be captured by a FF camera…….

Fujifilm Completes the F2.8 Lineup! 16-55mm F2.8 WR Lens Review |
Sven Schroeter

We got lucky, for the past seven days we have had the new 16-55mm lens at our disposal (kindly provided for test by the NZ Fujifilm team). With the addition of the 16-55mm lens, the F2.8 lens lineup is now complete and offers an equivalent focal range from 24mm through to 200mm when paired with the already available 50-140mm zoom. The new 16-55mm F2.8 (fixed aperture) weather sealed lens performs on par with the 50-140mm, a match made in heaven for those in search of versatility. Unfortunately we got the lens at pretty short notice and did not have the time to throw together a proper shoot to test each and every aspect of the the lens. So to make the most of the last few weeks of summer and accompanying stelar weather, we once again left the sky scrapers behind in search of tranquility with camera in hand…..

Rikenon 55mm f/1.2 review | Jonas Rask

Vintage lens review time! Some weeks ago I was browsing the classifieds as I regularly do, in search of good ol’ photography gold. My search never really broadens enough to include the word “Ricoh” but on this particular day I wanted to see what the going rate for the Ricoh GR was. What popped up was something quite different. A fast fifty? A really fast fifty? That I hadn’t heard about? That couldn’t be. Nonetheless it was certainly so. The seller seemed to charge a very reasonable price, but I had to check on eBay just to get an idea of the general price range of these lenses. Surprise! Not a single Rikenon 55mm f/1.2 was for sale on the entire eBay network! As I researched further I found out that the lens had some siblings under different brand names. The Yashinon 55mm, The Vivitar 55mm, and The Revuenon 55mm. The lens might have been manufactured by Tomioka in the 70’s 80’s and 90’s, or it might have ben produced by Cosina. I simply couldn’t find a straight answer to the manufacturing site! (if any of you readers know, please leave me a message)……

Fujifilm One Year On… | Dave Nash

Well It’s hard to believe I know, but it’s been a year since I sold my Canon 5D MkII and 50D and moved over to Fujifilm. I already had an X-E1, but it wasn’t until I went to the Birmingham Photo Show and got my hands on an X-T1 that I made up my mind. When I held that solid little black box and looked through the Tardis of a viewfinder I instantly fell in love with it. What was it about the X-T1? It’s compactness, its size, it’s usability, it’s functions, and above all it’s ability to capture such high quality images. I shoot RAW, always. but every time I have experimented with SOOC Jpegs I have been hugely impressed, in fact more than that, they are outstanding. I remember taking a photo of my wife on the beach in Spain. it was about 9.30 in the evening, so it was dark. I had the ISO on 6400 and I took a few shots hand held. That night when I had a look at them on the computer I just couldn’t believe the quality. So why do I shoot RAW now. To be honest, I don’t know. I could easily switch the dial to high quality jpegs, and be able to take thousands more shots on a card. But I have an inherent nagging feeling that one day it will be a mistake. That and, although I don’t do it much any more, but sometimes I like to play around with images, so having the RAW’s there would be a good idea. I love the layout of the camera as well. Love, love, LOVE it. Everything I need is there at my fingertips. No hunting through layers and layers of menu options. I have a physical dial at my fingertips. My first camera was a Russian Zenit B, so I blame them for my dial fetish……..
