Fuji X100T review | Digital Camera World

The latest camera in Fujifilm’s high-end X series is the Fuji X100T, which is very similar to the X100S, boasting the same 16-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor and Fujinon 23mm (35mm equivalent) f/2 lens. It also uses the same EXR Processor II, which at the time of the X100S’s release was claimed to produce images with 30% higher signal to noise ratio than those from the original X100. So what’s new and is it worth an upgrade? In her Fuji X100T review video, Amy Davies takes a look at what’s new, highlighting key features and settings, and giving a verdict on the X100T’s performance and image quality…….

Working With The Fuji 50-140mm Zoom Lens | Kevin Raber

I remember back to what seems like an eternity ago to the early cell phones.  I had a cell phone or more like a suitcase phone that I could carry in my briefcase.  I always thought it couldn’t get any better than this.  Then phones started to get smaller, and the race was on to make phones as small as possible.  The iPhone, my phone of choice, got so small I once again thought it couldn’t get any smaller.  And, what do you know, smaller is no longer the in thing as we have all seen by the popularity of the iPhone 6+ and its size.  Now this is not an article about cell phones but the same kind of trend from small to big is true with cameras and lenses. In the last few years, we have seen the birth of a new line of cameras that the industry calls mirrorless.  That term is so new it doesn’t even show up as the correct word in spell checkers.  With the introduction of mirrorless cameras, the lenses got smaller.  Fuji as well as Olympus, Panasonic and Sony have introduced a line of mirrorless cameras.  Mirrorless cameras are quickly being adopted as the go-to camera systems for many reasons.  The biggest reason other than the state of the art Electronic Viewfinder is weight and size………

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens Review |
ePhotoZine

Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R OIS WR Verdict

Fujifilm’s forthcoming range of f/2.8 zoom lenses have been eagerly awaited for some time amongst Fujifilm X-series camera owners, and this first addition to the range does not disappoint. Although it may seem expensive at first glance, Fujifilm have created a lens capable of delivering image quality of the highest order, that is robustly built, lightweight, weather resistant and that focuses quickly to boot. The performance of this lens puts it on a par with the finest 70-200mm f/2.8 optics available for full frame cameras and invariably, they cost a fair bit more than £1200.

Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R OIS WR Pros
  • Superb sharpness throughout the zoom range
  • Robust build
  • Lightweight
  • Retro design with manual aperture ring
  • Extremely low CA
  • Low distortion
  • Weather resistant construction
  • Fast focusing
  • Effective stabiliser

Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R OIS WR Cons

  • Attaching / removing tripod mount a little fiddly…….

Hands-on with Fujifilm’s new XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens | Digital Photography Review

It’s been on Fujifilm’s X-series roadmap for a while, but now it’s real – the XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR is a 24-83mm equivalent, weather-sealed standard zoom for Fujifilm’s high-end X-series interchangeable lens cameras, which offers a fast maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its zoom range. As CES gets started in Las Vegas, we grabbed a few minutes with the new zoom….
 
Although by no means a ‘big’ lens, as this image shows, the 16-55mm is pretty substantial and definitely looks large on Fujifilm’s flagship X-T1. The combination is nicely weighted though and we suspect that the triple threat of a fast-aperture, excellent build-quality and quick AF (we only had a few minutes with a pre-production model but Fujifilm’s claims seem justified) will win over a lot of enthusiast X-series users. Obviously the proof is in the pudding, and we’ll get a sample gallery online just as soon as we get our hands on a shipping-quality sample……

Fuji Grips HG-XE1 vs MHG-XE | Derren Hodson

This is a comparison and review of the two grips you can buy for the Fuji XE-1 or XE-2. The original grip for the XE-1 (HG-XE1) and the newer grip for the XE-1 or 2 (MHG-XE) both fit both cameras. The original grip was introduced along with the XE-1 and is required for better handling of the camera with heavier lenses, i.e. 56mm and the 23mm. The original grip was made of plastic and screws onto the bottom of the camera, it has a very nice felt bottom and a self fastening screw. The second version is made of metal and has an allen bolt so you need to have an allen key tool to unscrew and screw it in, this makes it more of a permanent fixture. There is no felt on the bottom but is finished to a high quality, it also has a little lip unlike the original which is flush…..

Fuji X100T : Initial Thoughts | Squonky

That’s quite a statement when you consider the number of cameras I’ve owned and used over all my years as a photographer, film and digital. I’ve owned an X100 for about three years at the time of writing. I was drawn to the original release mostly by the manual controls, the hybrid viewfinder, the relatively large sensor size and the excellent, versatile 35mm equivalent f2 prime lens. All of this packaged in a compact and lightweight (if not quite pocketable) format. The X100 proved itself to me over and over again. It was the perfect camera to obtain great image quality without having to lug around a heavy rucksack full of equipment. I think it really won its place in my affections during a family holiday to Rome in 2012. I decided to take only my X100 rather than all my DSLR kit and it performed superbly, making the holiday more enjoyable into the bargain as I only had a small, light camera with me…….

Fuji X-T1 Vertical Grip Review | Dave Young

If you’re a Fuji X-T1 owner, you’ll know that one of the very few disadvantages of it is the relatively short battery life, something not uncommon in almost all Fuji models. A simple option to assist you in increasing the shot count is to match it to the X-T1 Vertical Grip. By adding a second battery it doubles the shooting capacity to approximately 700 whilst providing the option to shoot vertical in portrait mode. Attaching to the camera body is simple. Remove the rubber cover on the base of the body which is stowed in a useful recess in the grip for safe keeping and then simply screw the grip into the tripod socket using the sturdy locking wheel.  There are two metal posts on either end of the grip which insert into the base of the camera to help prevent twist or flex of the grip once attached.  The VG-XT1 offers a dust and water resistant body just as the X-T1 does and features twin command dials, AE-L and AF-L buttons, focus assist button and a shutter release button together with a tripod mounting thread…….

Mr. Big – The Fujinon XF 50-140mm review | Jonas Rask

Conclusion

The Fujinon XF 50-140mm WR OIS is an incredible lens. It’s as sharp as the sharpest primes in the X-system, and it renders gorgeous out of focus areas. It’s incredibly versatile, and it will most definitely serve as a daily workhorse for many photojournalists, event photographers, wedding photographers and the likes. While not a lens I would add to my setup, this is definitely one of the best lenses currently available from Fujifilm……..

Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Camera Review | Shutterbug

Sharpness: The resolution results are excellent. The Fujifilm X-T1 reproduced the ISO 12.233 chart with 3183 lines per picture height, which is nearly its nominal sensor resolution of 3264 lines per picture height. Fine details like the metal structure of the sieve in our standard test box shot or the hair in our portrait shot are reproduced very clearly and without visible sharpness filtering effects. And these are results from use of the kit lens. The camera and lens combination creates images without any chromatic aberration in the image center and only minor aberration effects in the corners of the image. The exposure settings of the standard test box shot are well balanced. The colors have a very natural look and the gray background is reproduced very naturally and with neutral tones.

Noise: The Fujifilm X-T1 showed very good performance in our noise test. The luminance noise level is extremely low. Even at the highest ISO speed settings there are nearly no noticeable color noise artifacts. The camera uses an intelligent and very unobtrusive filtering system that doesn’t reduce image detail like many other digital cameras do in the highest ISO speed settings. Only at the highest ISO speed setting of 6400 did we notice some artifacts that make the anti-noise filtering visible. The dynamic range results are very good. The camera gained a maximum of 11.4 f/stops and keeps a high level of more than 10 f/stops up to ISO 3200…….
