Fujinon XF16-55mm F2.8 at Zouk Singapore | Flemming Bo Jensen

Our pitch to Fuji Japan for this promotinal project was Singapore by Night. The pictures are going to be used for the web, brochures, exhibitions and books from Fuji. The main story would be a photo and video shoot at a Singapore nightclub. Following up on my first impressions, here are some more random notes about Ferry Corsten’s brother using the Fujinon XF16-55mmF2.8 lens and our experience creating the stills and the movie for this promotional project…..

Leica M | Art Shots

A decision that did not came immediately but was inevitable from the beginning…

Leica cameras were introduced to me by a friend of mine somewhere back in 2005. At this time I was looking for a relatively inexpensive way to record memories of the first upcoming child. Leica’s brand name came in the conversation because even thought I could afford only inexpensive digital camera I wanted to see what is the best on the market. Back in 2005 digital was such a huge thing that I did not even think about the option of getting a film camera. Looking back at the photos now I can really see what a mistake that was. With a decent camera with real lens and aperture f2 you could do a much better job scanning the negatives at high resolution using a professional scanner. Not to mention we had 2 SLR film cameras in the closet one of which I used already at age of 11. I guess compared to the digital compact they were SLR monsters. One of the two was actually a Zenit E which was a smaller size SLR but had a problem with the mechanics. Still have that camera……

Shooting With Leica’s Nutty No-Screen Camera Is Half Joy, Half Fantasy | Michael Hession

The Leica M Edition 60 is the company’s 60th anniversary limited-edition version of its latest M rangefinder. It costs around $20,000 and has no display and no buttons (aside from the shutter). To some, it’s ridiculous. To most, it’s unaffordable. But after shooting with it for a couple of hours, I can say that if nothing else, it’s incredibly charming. Inside the minimalist exterior of the M 60 are the same set of guts found in last year’s M Type 240 and its 24 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. Attached is a 35mm f/1.4 Summulix ASPH, the ne plus ultra of Leica’s 35mm offerings. There are only 600 of these rigs being made, and one of them was at Leica’s Brooklyn studio last week. We were lucky enough to borrow it for a short stint……..

Leica M or M Monochrome, the cruel dilemma…. and decision time! |
Fae Photographies

Equipped of a M9 since few month, I started a reflection to choose his successor, the M Monochrome or the M? We must choose so I propose to share with you the path who allows me to decide. To immediately fix things, I precise than I don’t attach a vital importance at the brand of my equipment. I’ve owned equipments of brand quite different (Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Fuji) and my choice for Leica equipment’s was made on the only fact of the result camera / lens. To precise that, I would develop by saying that if the Leica camera are beautiful tools in cosmetic point of view and in manufacturing terms, they not crush the competition when we stick to the image quality. The other marks, strong of their experience and often of means superior to Leica, have brought to the digital photo to a level of excellence and maturity which cannot be discussed. Previous cameras I’ve owned have given me some beautiful photographic joys and I won’t denied to have appreciated them…..

Fujinon XF 16-55 mm f/2 8 | Wim Arys

Conclusion

The Fuji X-T1 has been adopted by many professional photographers and they seem keen on keeping even the most demanding pro’s happy. Fuji was already renowned for their nice range of lenses, and anyone who has switched to another brand will tell you that’s the main thing they miss. It’s astonishing that they actually keep improving on the XF lens range designs and this is clearly noticeable in terms of features and performance. Now let’s get the elephant out of the room : there is no optical image stabilisation incorporated in this lens. Yes this will hurt sales, and I would have preferred it to be included in the XF1655, just because it would have made it even easier to use. I’m spoiled with the general performance of the XF 50-140 tele-zoom, where I rarely have a missed shot thanks to that OIS image stabilisation. You do need to take more care when focussing with the Fujinon XF 16-55 if you don’t want to have too many missed shots. Incorporating an image stabilisation system would probably have increased size, weight and price, but that would not have been a real issue for me personally. OK, this zoom is already quite large, and perhaps at the limits of what you’d expect from a mirror-less system, but it is still very compact compared to DSLR lenses…….

Fuji XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens Review | Planopora

The new “pro” zoom from Fuji is finally starting to hit the streets. My favorite local camera store, Competitive Cameras, actually got two in last weekend. The first guy on the list drove halfway across the state of Texas to get his. I was number two. I became a fan of Fuji when they released the XT-1 last year. It had the feel of the manual cameras I was used to from the days of film, but with a size and feature set of a modern digital camera. I also really loved the size and build quality of their prime lenses. The 23mm and 56mm are incredible lenses. Combined with the XT-1, they make for a potent street shooting and travel combination. Which brings us to their new big brother, the XF 16-55mm f/2.8 zoom. This definitely marks Fuji’s attempt at producing a pro-grade lens and the size reflects it. While I’m not selling any of my primes any time soon, I also know there is a time and place for a solid, fast short zoom…….

The Fuji X-Pro 1..My “Soulmate” Camera | Christina Davis

Thank you for letting me share, once again, with the readers here on this site. I am a Fujifilm camera user (X-Photographer wannabe….I can dream, can’t I?). I sold off all of my DSLR equipment and the XPro1 was my main camera. Like many Fuji enthusiasts I, too, got one of the X-T1 cameras when they came out. While I was less than thrilled with the form, the performance was as described and I happily shot away with it all spring and summer this year. In fact, the XPro1 was gathering dust and as August rolled around, I was considering letting it go. As I thought it over I remembered one photo I took this summer with it. On an outing to The Huntington in Pasadena, California, I took the XT1 and the XPro1. I put on the 18mm lens on the XPro1 “just in case”……..

Nissin i40 flash for Fuji | John Caz

Unbelievable how for so many years DSLR manufacturers were pushing bigger and bigger products when all the time, what we really needed was smaller and smaller. Even the flashes took this trip, look at the size increase from the old Nikon SB-28 all the way to the current SB-900. Since switching to Fuji I have been spoiled with smaller sizes and less weight. Now, thanks to the award winning Nissin i40, Fuji users get a small and light fully functional pro grade flash! Now that’s something to be joyful about! The flash itself is very small especially if you are coming from the world of DSLR’s. Its nearly 1/2 the height (85mm vs 146mm) and 1/2 the weight (200g vs 415g) when compared to my old Nikon SB-900. But thankfully size doesn’t equal output power since the Nissin is rated at 27m and my Nikon at 35m (ISO 100 & 35mm) – not as powerful but close enough. It comes with a very nice case…….

1.2 Point of View: Fuji XF 56mm First Impression | Rivals

85mm is probably my favorite focal length, it’s the one I constantly keep adding to my collection. When I made the switch to Fuji I told myself that I wanted to replicate my previous setup, the 35mm and 85mm focal length (FF Eqv.) I’m sure you’ve all read this story before, as I’ve stated this multiple times. Initially I was just going to take advantage of the Fuji’s focus assist feature and use vintage glass, I owned the Helios 44-2 and the image quality it offered was suitable enough for my needs. This wasn’t until I went on a shoot with a friend of mine in the woods of Westland. I was using the 18-55 kit lens and I really like the face detection feature. It locked right on! I found myself switching between this lens and the Helios, the work flow with the kit was just way easier. At that moment I knew for serious sessions I needed this feature, but at faster speed……

The Fuji X-T1 with Fujinon lenses | Ian MacDonald

My gateway into the Fuji X series was through the Fuji X100s.  Like many, I had initially started out looking for a small camera for those times where I didn’t want to carry the backpack full of DSLR gear.  Not for “real shoots”, but for those times where I wanted to have a small camera with me that still delivered quality images. The X100s sold me on the Fuji sensor and Fuji’s image processing.  I loved it, and soon developed a passion for street photography.  I travelled often with it as my only camera and developed a small “take anywhere” travel kit around it. It wasn’t long after I purchased the Fuji X100s that I started looking at the possibility of replacing my Nikon gear completely with Fuji.  As much as I loved the X100s, I knew I would need an interchangeable lens system for the portrait and landscape work I love to do.  The timing ended up being perfect as Fuji released what is arguably their flagship model:  The Fuji X-T1……
