The Nissin i40 Flash for Fuji Review | Colin Nicholls

A bit of clarification; I rarely use flash, in fact I really only use it for dancing shots at weddings, that being said this review is a quick look at what this piece of gear can do, my abilities with flash are limited so please excuse the technical side of things. My current flash guns are the very competent but also the very big Yongnuo 560’s, when this flash came out I ordered one right away as it had some great features but for me the size is a massive bonus, no longer will my little X100 feel like its being pulled forward with the weight of the Yongnuo on top. I always like to keep my reviews short so I’ll try that here, I preordered the Nissin i40 from Jessops and managed to be one of the first to get it in the UK, so this review is kind of a quick overview and a breakdown of how it performs, so here goes. Size on a Fuji: Small, like really really small, crazy small. As you can see from the photos, this flash is super small, it’s crazy that it takes 4 AA batteries, I’m not really sure where the electronics go. On the X100 it’s incredibly well balanced and feels very comfortable to use, the dials are in the perfect place and are very easy to turn whilst feeling solid……….

Significant upgrades to the X100T include a more durable triple layer coating finish, an ultra-fast electronic shutter that is capable of exposures up to 1/32000sec, Natural Live View function that removes the image quality settings from the viewfinder image while shooting, and a Classic Chrome film simulation mode. The X-T1 Graphite Silver also features a 2.36m dot resolution OLED electronic viewfinder with the world’s highest magnification and a lag-time of just 0.005 sec, hybrid auto-focus system with a fast response time of 0.08sec, a weather-proof body, five mechanical dials and six customisable function buttons, and compatibility with Ultra High Speed UHS-II SDXC memory cards. At the heart of the X-T1 Graphite Silver is a 16.3 megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor, which has a colour filter array that mimics film grain and no optical low-pass filter for higher resolution images, Fujifilm’s EXR Processor II, and a Lens Modulation Optimiser which automatically corrects diffraction blur. The X-T1 Graphite Silver also has a tilting 3-inch LCD screen, 8fps burst shooting, enhanced wi-fi connectivity, interval timer shooting, in-camera raw conversion, a range of film simulation modes, multiple exposure and panoramic shooting modes, Digital Split Image and Focus Peaking for easier manual focusing, and Full HD video recording capabilities at up to 60fps.

Preview: Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8R LM OIS WR Zoom |
Mike Mander

I recently had an opportunity to briefly test Fujifilm’s new professional level zoom, equivalent to a 75-210mm in full-frame terms. I tested it on my X-E2 body but above, you can see it mounted to an X-T1. While the lens is indeed quite large and has substantial mass, it is actually not as heavy as it looks, in other words, its density doesn’t seem all that high, a welcome fact thankfully. I have Fujifilm’s extra hand-grip on my X-E2 and with it, I found the lens fairly well balanced and easy to handhold. This is constant aperture f/2.8 zoom with a properly marked aperture ring on the lens, a first for Fujifilm zooms and hopefully the beginning of a future trend! It has a linear-motor (LM) for fast and quiet focusing, it boasts weather-resistant (WR) construction and has an optical image stabilizer (OIS) that is rated for 5-stops of extra stability. The tripod mount is detachable with two thumbscrews but it is also a nice way to carry the lens with attached body, to avoid stress on the body’s lens mount from the relatively heavy lens. The lens is beautifully constructed with a fully internal zoom mechanism and a silky smooth zoom ring with absolutely consistent tension that doesn’t get tight anywhere within its range or towards either end of the zoom. In addition, it has a perfect feeling aperture ring with nice, crisp detents and excellent tension……

Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 zoom – a Hands-on review | Tom Grill

Ask most pros and you will probably find they have a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens as one of the two main staples in their DSLR lens kit. This focal length, along with a 24-70mm f/2.8, covers the majority of situations we are likely to encounter. Such lenses by Nikon and Canon are legendary for their quality optics and semi-fast, fixed aperture. A pro who shoots weddings or lifestyle probably relies on an f/2.8 long zoom. Photographing animals, sports, or even travel, same thing. Since its inception in the 1980’s, an 80-200mm (now 70-200mm) zoom lens has been a required staple on any equipment list.  Fuji’s addition of these f/2.8 zooms to the Fuji XF lens lineup demonstrates its intent to raise the X-series cameras to true pro-grade use……..

The Fujifilm X100T Review | David Cleland

The Fujifilm X100T is the 3rd generation of the brilliant retro-styled X100 camera. The X100 was the camera that first attracted me to Fujifilm and to mirrorless photography back in early 201 and from then I upgraded to the Fujifilm X100s and it literally went everywhere in its little brown leather case documenting some of the best memories of 2013 and 2014 including Jim Broadbent, Two Door Cinema Club, and Vivian Campbell to name just a few. You can read my X100S experiences in: The X100S One Year On. When Fujifilm announced the X100T I assumed it was an incremental upgrade to the X100 range and I began to wonder what they would change and how they could improve on the the X100s which I considered to be a work of brilliance. I read comments from other photographers considering there might not be enough of a change on the X100s to justify the upgrade as, after all it was the same lens, the same sensor, and it is almost identical in physical appearance. Within a few minutes of using the X100T the differences were obviously apparent, it’s a leap but please don’t consider this statement me writing off the X100S, it remains a brilliant camera but where the X100s is smart, the X100T is a genius. It feels like Fujifilm have packed a supercomputer into the X100T both in terms of features and performance……..

The Zeiss Touit 50mm Macro Full Review | MirrorLessons

Conclusion

The Zeiss Touit 50mm 2.8 Macro is a very nice lens capable of delivering excellent quality. It is very sharp, has good close-up capabilities and good AF performance. I could not find a flaw during the time I tested it. The rubber covering both the aperture and focus rings are nice to use, and the lens is very light and therefore easy to carry. Since it offers a 1:1 scale ratio for macro work, it is perhaps the most interesting lens out of the trio for the Fuji X system so far…….

Fujifilm X-T1 + 23mm f/1.4 Lens Review | Kris Connor

This past September was my eighth season traveling up to New York City from Washington DC to cover Fashion Week. I truly enjoy photographing Fashion Week. Even though it’s chaotic, I love the thrill and constant stimulation. In regards to equipment I am your typical photojournalist, photographing with two DSLR bodies, one-two flashes and two zoom lenses. Over the last few years, as I have moved more into reportage work, I’ve become tired of carrying all that gear around. I have been looking to lighten my normal load. In recent years, I have gained interest in investing in the mirrorless systems that are coming on the market due to their light weight, size and quietness. Their image quality is starting to match to the SLR systems in the recent years. When Adorama gave me the opportunity to test out the Fuji X-T1 with a 23mm F1.4 lens during this past fashion week, I jumped on the opportunity…..

Day 2 With the Fuji X-T1 – With Jesmina Aktar | Keenan Hastings

Back again with the Fuji X-T1, for those of you that haven’t read “Day 1″ click here… Now that you’re caught up, lets move on. I had an opportunity to take my X-T1 on its first photo shoot! I was rather excited, yet nervous, I’m honestly not 100% confident using the camera because all of the new controls. One, being the electronic viewfinder, it’s amazing, but sometimes I’m not sure if I’m in focus, even with the focus assist (peaking) feature I’ve been second guessing myself; It worked great in portraits from the chest up, but pictures at a distance not so much, though I’m sure its a user error. The other small flaw is some of the manual controls at the top, though the ISO lock button is annoying, I’ve grown to appreciate it, I actually wish Fujifilm used this feature on every nob, because at times I accidently adjust my exposure. The only downfall with this physical dial system is using it at night, it’s hard to see at times, but with consistent camera usage I think I will be able to overcome this issue……

Can you Really Use Manual Lenses on the X Pro 1? |
Matt Widgery

 
One of the most interesting possibilities with mirrorless camerams is their ability to use almost any classic vintage manual lenses from 135 film cameras, thanks to the small flange distance between the back of the lens and the sensor. With a range of cheap (and some not so cheap) adapters readily available and plenty of old glass for sale in your local camera shop and online, why not experiment and see what you get?….

Review of the Fujifilm X100T in Hong Kong | Bigheadtaco

The X100T is a great travel camera for those who wish to travel light and reasonably compact. With an APS-C size sensor and a unique hybrid viewfinder, this camera can capture some serious pictures. Instead of talking about it as a travel camera, I actually took it with me on vacation to Hong Kong. How good is this camera? It’s awesome. Check out my first quick video review here in Hong Kong, and I’ll have more videos and updates to my blog to follow…..
