Fujifilm X-T2 in South Aftica | Husam Mneimneh

Fujifilm X-T2 in South Aftica | Husam Mneimneh | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

When I first handled the X-T2, I felt it a bit larger (few millimeters from each side) and slightly heavier (about 50g difference) than the X-T1. Those few millimeters were just right for me to feel comfortable handling it. Unlike my feeling when using the X-T1, where all the dials felt cumbersome in my big hands. The 2 Axis Tilt Screen is Magical. I am glad Fujifilm didn’t opt for the full articulated screen although it might be more useful for videographers. I always like to shoot using the tilt screen on the axis of the lens; with the 2 Axis Tilt screen, you can take low angle shots in landscape and portrait mode and still remain on the Axis of the lens.......

Fuji X Pro 2 | Russell Ord

Fuji X Pro 2 | Russell Ord | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Having only used Nikon for the last 16 years to shoot all my photography work  (surf, weddings, commercial)  its a little daunting to say the least changing over the complete camera system. I have had the Fuji X Pro 2 for a few weeks along with a small selection of lenses: Zeiss Touit 12mm F2.8 | Fuji XF 56mm F1.2 |  Fuji XF 27mm F2.8 pancake lens - its a slow process of selling off my unwanted gear and buying new bodies and glass, believe me I will only be doing this once. Before I shoot my first wedding or commercial job, I want to get completely used to the camera so I put it through its paces at my sons boxing gym "The Onshore Gym" named by the coach Nathan Brooks because if the wind is blowing in that direction its open for business which suits 99% of the boxers that train there, being surfers themselves. Low light sports photography and to be honest I didn't have any problems at all, I am more than confident with making the full transition and having a number of Fuji bodies and lenses for all my work, I am not about to go into technical jargon, the lenses (see above) are incredible, sharp, great colour, well built. Note For a detailed to review I would suggest Ken Rockwell, that goes for all brands and equipment.......

Fujifilm X-T2 | Tom Museeuw | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Many Fujifilm users have been waiting for this day, the launch-day of the X-T2. Some already did an upgrade earlier this year when the X-Pro2 was available, others wanted to wait for the X-T2 because they like the form factor of the X-T series. Many rumors were spread in the last months. Photographers speculated and leaked images were investigated. As of today, speculate no more. The X-T2 is officially announced and I can finally talk about it! Early in April Fujifilm asked me if I was interested to team-up and test the upcoming X-T2. A couple of days later a secret black "X" box without any marks or branding arrived ... a brand new, factory smelling, pre-production X-T2 was inside. After carefully reading the non-disclosure that Fujifilm had sent me I felt like a secret agent with a mission, one thing was very clear: I couldn't talk about this camera to anyone. Keeping this a secret from everyone was sometimes hard, especially when attendees in my workshops were talking about the features of the new X-T2. At that time I had the camera in my camera bag, I knew the specs, I used the camera daily at the moment when others were speculating......

Fujifilm X-T2 unveilled | Paul Sanders | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

The camera has all the good looks of its predecessor but has been redesigned based on photographers feedback. The magnesium body has weather resistant sealing to suit rugged outdoor conditions, this professional body is slightly larger than the Fujifilm X-T1 due to improved control dials that turn easily with or without gloves. In the hand it feels chunky but not over big, it also feels less flimsy than the X-T1, the buttons and dials all have a very positive action so there is less chance of accidentally knocking the settings. The design of the body has been altered to fit more comfortably in the hand, I really like the new feel, it feels like a professional camera, and when the new grip is added it really has the feel true photographers camera. The very impressive 24.3MP APS-C X Trans CMOS III sensor, featured on the X-Pro2, has already proved its worth to photographers but now with the addition of 4K and 2K video formats opens up the incredible range to professional videographers too. When filming video expect incredible sharpness and low noise when recording up to a maximum of ISO 12800........

X-T2. the great X-pectation | Ivan Joshua Loh | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Fujifilm X-T1 was the camera that gave me the assurance and confident to jump into mirrorless about 2 and half years ago. Leaving my bread and butter 1DX, 5D2 and L lenses was really a difficult decision. Do bear in mind that I really think hard as these are my gears that I make a living with. But I was thankful that there was a vertical grip which beef up the small X-T1 and hopefully looks like a small DSLR in my client’s eyes. In retrospect; how silly of me. Fast forward, the new X-T2. Everything about the X-T2 have either grown bigger, taller and definitely better. Its a bigger camera now. Not a lot more but when I hold it in my hand, its feels more right. Especially with a new design tumb rest area. Its also heavier; to be exact; 67 grams. The three dials are also a bit taller and a little bigger. All except the compensation dial which is the same diameter. I am not gonna explain much in this area. Here are some pictures of X-T1 and X-T2 side by side. I guess this will the best way to explain the physical size differences between X-T1 and X-T2.....

Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR review | Peter Engdahl

Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR review | Peter Engdahl | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Maybe it’s too early to write a review of the Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR since I’ve only had it for a short period of time, but this is my site and I do what I want. Anyhow, this is a very unscientific review, the scientific ones can be found elsewhere, this is about how it feels to work with and it’s a short review. Like I said, I’ve only had it for a short period of time, I’ve done two model shoots with it (the first two in my Portraits section, they are exclusively shot with this lens, at f/2) and I was booked for another shoot today but my model (not Hanna, my favourite model) never got back to me. First I thought I should go to Copenhagen and try the lens for some street photography, but I got delayed so I couldn’t be bothered travelling there today. Instead I took it out for just some test shots around my home town. This lens is awesome. End of review......

I want to thank everyone for the response to my last blogpost!


Some of you asked, if I could write down my opinion for using the Fuji XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR as a "Every-Day-Lens". So I own the lens for about 2 weeks now and I am really impressed with it. Before I go deeper into the "Review" I must say that this is my own opinion. This blogpost is also not a technical type of review as you all may find many of those on the internet........

Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD ( Fujifilm ) - Review / Test Report | Photozone

Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD ( Fujifilm ) - Review / Test Report | Photozone | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Verdict


So is the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD the magician that it is supposed to be ? Well, mostly. I reckon the sample images showed you that the bokeh is mostly as smooth as silk except in really difficult scenes (where most conventional lenses would fail as well). The rendition of out-of-focus highlights could be a little better though. Other than that, the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD inherits most of the characteristics from the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R. It combines an ultra-large aperture with high quality results. At large aperture settings the center quality is already pretty high whereas the borders/corners are at least on a good level. The resolution is much more snappy at f/2.8 and images are very sharp across the image field between f/4 and f/8. The very low amount of lateral CAs also contributes to the high sharpness perception. Image distortions are nothing to worry about whereas vignetting can be an issue in RAW images between f/1.2 and f/2. However, Fujifilm is relying on image auto-correction so this is usually a lesser issue from a user perspective........

Wide Angle Wizardry :: Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f4 R IOS | Derek Clark

Wide Angle Wizardry :: Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f4 R IOS | Derek Clark | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

I have fond memories of shooting with a Sigma 10-20mm and 10mm fisheye a few years ago on DSLR’s. Super wide angle lenses are great fun and sometimes it’s the things they say you shouldn’t do with a wide angle that turn out to be the most interesting and fun. I got that familiar, but at the same time forgotten tingle of excitement when I attached the Fuji 10-24mm f4 lens to the X-T1, similar to how a piece of music takes you back to a memory tucked away in the back of your mind. A super wide angle lens is an epic way to see the world! In full frame speak, this would be a 15-36mm, so it can be a decent documentary lens, especially in tight spaces. It could be used for street photography too, but it’s a bit too big compared to the 23mm f1.4 or 18mm f2. But if landscape or architecture work is your thing, then this is the lens for you. I haven’t managed to get anywhere near the sea since having the 10-24mm, but I’m sure it would produce epic seascapes.........

Fujifilm X-T1 review | Alex Lagarejos | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

So at the end of last month I was lucky enough to have Fujifilm send me a Fuji X-T1, an XF14mm 2.8 R and a XF35mm 1.4 R to take with me as I travelled the country on a crazy schedule for some editorial assignments, which saw me take in Scarborough, York, and then to the coast of North Wales, Snowdonia and then back to London – working for four clients, all in the space of 8 days. While I can’t release any of the images I shot for clients yet, I did have a little bit of free time to grab some shots to put up here. First off, Fujifilm and the people they have working for them are incredible. They went the extra mile to make sure I got the camera in time to fit in with my mental schedule, nothing was too much trouble – an altogether uncommon experience nowadays! .....

Jumping Ship - From DSLR to Fuji X - | Jason Pitcher

Jumping Ship - From DSLR to Fuji X - | Jason Pitcher | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

It all started in July 2013 when I bought a Fuji X100s. Apart from being a gorgeous camera, it has amazing image quality and portability. I’ve been babbling on about it on these pages for a while. For what I shoot, when I shoot, it does a fantastic job. I recently printed the final image from this post on fine art paper at 13″ x 19″ and it is gorgeous! So I was reviewing the pictures I’d taken through the last 6 months of the 2013, and I realized that I hardly touched the D800E. It was a rapidly depreciating asset that I almost never used. With the addition of the teleconverters for the X100s, The only thing I needed the Nikon for was long lens work or super wide angle stuff. I also came to realize that 36MP is overkill for my needs. I decided to take to leap and sell the Nikon and most of the glass. Because of my experience with the little Fuji, I wanted to replace it with a small, light CSC that could go super wide and long to cover what I needed the Nikon for, but in a smaller package. I was going to stay with Fuji because I now knew it and was comfortable with the processing workflow, which is a very important consideration. I also want a viewfinder. I will always want a viewfinder. Always. So, given the extensive range of interchangeable compact cameras they do, how do I decide.......

Fujifilm X-T1 review | Mark Richards | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Is the Fujifilm X-T1 camera better than the X-Pro1? I think the answer is a resounding yes.  I will leave the technical reviews to others – this is purely about the X-T1 from a user perspective as much technical information is pretty meaningless when it comes to me using a camera in a day to day situation. As a user I’m interested in only three things – how easy is the camera to use, is it reliable and does it take great photos? Well earlier this year I got a chance to find out.  I had been using a Fujifilm X-Pro1 for about 18 months and mentioned in passing to my brother that I was thinking about the X-T1 as a possible replacement but it was too expensive.  Imagine my surprise the following week when a brand new X-T1 arrived in the post completely out of the blue!  Having an older brother definitely has its advantages…

Long lens love affair - Fuji X-T1 and the 55-200 | Andy Gallacher

Long lens love affair - Fuji X-T1 and the 55-200 | Andy Gallacher | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

It was those numbers that initially put me off buying the Fuji XF 55-200 lens. I'd worked a lot with the Canon 70-200 MkII previously and with a constant f/2.8 aperture surely this lighter and much cheaper Fuji couldn't compare? The purchase was made back when I still had the X-Pro1 and a trip to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador was booked. In the end it was the 55-200 that made it a memorable visit. The lens, which felt a little awkward on the X-Pro1, stayed on the camera for almost the entire time and constantly surprised me with its razor sharp images and creamy bokeh. But it's when I paired the lens with the X-T1 that it really began to shine. I'd already been impressed with the image stabilization on the 55-200 but combine that with the new Fuji's constant focus and 8fps and it makes for a compelling combination.....

Fujifilm X-T2 | James Day | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

I remember coming home most days to see my dad sitting in front of the TV, watching the bold and the beautiful while flipping through the latest issue of the B&H Catalogue. The catalogue was filled with hundreds of cameras, lenses, accessories and basically was designed to slowly convince you that you needed the latest Minolta APO-G Lenses, at least that’s what happened to my dad. I remember picking out my first camera in that catalogue. We then went to visit Photo Continental in Brisbane to sus it out. Then I had to wait most of the year before dad would finally buy it for me for Christmas. This camera was a Minolta Vectis 40. It cost around $600 at the time from memory. These days, they’re going for $23.03 on eBay. Anyway, this started my love affair for new gear. The reason I loved the Vectis 40, was because it had a new system called Advantix, which was the latest, greatest way of shooting film at the time. It gave you lots of different cropping options and made shooting film fun again. These days I’m a total gear hound. I have cupboards filled with random gear. Stuff I use regularly, stuff that’s there for a rainy day and stuff that I just should never have purchased.....

Reconciliations: Testing the Fujifilm X-T2 | Verity Milligan

Reconciliations: Testing the Fujifilm X-T2 | Verity Milligan | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Over the years I’ve had an on-again off-again relationship with Fujifilm. I had a lot of affection for the rather lovely X-Pro1 that I bought on a bit of a whim without even testing it out, and when asked I’ll still maintain that the 35mm f/1.4 is one of the nicest lenses I’ve had the opportunity to use (Russ, I can see your face right now). However, after some fluke accident in my camera bag, the screen of my X-Pro1 imploded, and I ended up replacing it with the X-T1, which I perceived to be a step up, but ultimately ended as a step sideways and down a little bit. The biggest issue I had with the X-T1 was it’s colour rendition and those infamous RAW files. Time and again in the field I felt let down. The camera seemed utterly unable to capture the dynamic range I was used to achieving with my Canon 5D Mk III, and what started as an exercise in reducing kit size turned into me carrying two systems and looking much like a kid on my first day of school (I’m 5’1).  No matter how much I tried, I couldn’t make the RAW files work for me. ......

The Fuji X-T2, a new beginning! |  Saraya Cortaville | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

I have never been a great one for keeping a secret!…. 25th of April, 15:00 hours and the rendezvous point was Somerset house, Embankment, London, England. Two very special agents from Fuji U.K handed me a top secret black box! A black box that only 100 other photographers around the world were privy too, before its official release. My mission was to test out this prototype and see if I was willing to defect! Being a loyal Nikon user since my first assisting job in 1999, and having always enjoyed the quality, and build of their cameras. A Nikon user since the film days of the F5! I invested in the lenses and bought into the ethos of quality! Yes a photographer who had stayed loyal to the brand and the system for a long while almost 15 years! Could I be swayed? My most recent investment being the D4s, and three lenses, the 24mm-70mm, f2.8, 70mm-200mm, f2.8 and the 50mm prime f1.2. This kit has travelled with me across the world and allowed me to shoot some beautiful images that I am very proud of!!  I have gained two fellowships and numerous awards with this kit.....

REVIEW: Fujifilm X-T2 -The X-Series Camera We’ve Been Waiting For! | Jeff Carter

REVIEW: Fujifilm X-T2 -The X-Series Camera We’ve Been Waiting For! | Jeff Carter | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it
For the past three months I’ve been testing a prototype of the latest addition to the X Series range, the Fujifilm X-T2.  My role, along with the other X-Photographers selected to test the new camera, is to put the camera through its paces and report back to Fujifilm our findings.  The R&D Department back in Japan would then provide us with firmware updates as we went along until the final production model is available to go on sale. There have been a lot of rumours and hype surrounding this camera and I have to be honest, the hype has been justified.  The X-T2 is the best X Series yet and one of the best cameras on the market in 2016.  The X-Pro2 when it was launched in January was a big step forward in terms of usability, performance and resolution, building on the experience gained from the years of development and the feed back received from a dedicated group of photographers around the world. Now today Fujifilm can, at last, officially take the wraps off the X-T2 and reveal to the world the latest X-Series camera aimed at professional and enthusiast photographers alike.......

FUJIFILM X-T2 camera review  | Björn Moerman

FUJIFILM X-T2 camera review  | Björn Moerman | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it
Lets first go back a few months to April 21. On that day, I received a black box from Japan which had my name on it. Inside I found an early pre-production copy of the X-T2! Completely taped up its secret codename was "Taurus". While initially the camera had a basic firmware based on the X-Pro2, a number of pre-release firmware updates gradually made it to the X-T2 that is announced today! While most of the firmware updates were installed were relatively easy to install, the last one had to be done by a Fujifilm qualified engineer...  A bummer as I was travelling in that period and therefore could not be done before release date. Briefly, as of today I have not seen the final version of the firmware, although it was pretty close! So although not limited to it, the review below will concentrate a bit more on the ergonomics rather than an in depth firmware review of this great new camera. Overall the new X-T2 looks and feels very much like its predecessor. Actually while shooting the prototype over the last two and a half months, not a single person spotted a "new" camera, while quite a few thought I was just using an X-T1.......

Review: Fujifilm 16mm f1.4 R WR (X Mount) | Chris Gampat

Review: Fujifilm 16mm f1.4 R WR (X Mount) | Chris Gampat | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

The Fujifilm 16mm f1.4 is a lens that makes a lot of sense in the company’s lineup. Fujifilm’s strengths are with their primes, though their zoom lenses have started to become spectacular in the higher end category. However, very little else will appeal to the retro-smitten photographer like Fujifilm’s prime lenses–and the 16mm f1.4 is no exception. With nine aperture blades, a weather sealed body, metal exterior, a clicky aperture ring, and a depth of field scale that you can use for zone focusing, what’s not to like? While you can surely start off by saying that it costs a heck of a lot, you can also point out to a single major flaw that we found with the image quality. But overall, that’s just about all that you can hate about this lens. Even then, it’s very easy to stay in love with it.

 

Pros

– Very sharp wide open

– Very sharp overall

– Excellent metal build quality

– Focusing ring allows for zone focusing

– Pretty decent bokeh for a lens of this type, despite having 9 aperture blades

– Fast focusing performance

– Weather sealed construction

– Keeps distortion down pretty well

Cons

– Depth of Field scale could have given us more focusing markers

– More purple fringing than a modern lens should have despite it easily being removed in post-production

– There are so many other things that you can do for just under $1,000.

– Autofocus is just a hair too slow for street photography........

Fujifilm X100T | Photo Review

Fujifilm X100T | Photo Review | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Conclusion


Although not a huge – or particularly exciting – update, Fujifilm's X100T addresses some of the main criticisms levelled at previous models and should appeal to fans of the company's rangefinder cameras. Buyers should have few complaints about image quality or overall performance and usability and, for these reasons, we have listed the camera as an Editor's Choice. As a general-purpose camera, however, it has many limitations and its high price tag will mean most buyers will be purchasing it for a particular reason. We're not sure the built-in Wi-Fi will provide a compelling incentive for potential buyers, although it will provide the only way to geotag shots using location data from a smart device. Overall, the X100T provides improvements to both still imaging and movie performance. Equally attractive for its inconspicuousness, its re-designed viewfinder and larger, higher-resolution monitor make it a little more attractive than its predecessor. But whether that justifies the price differential is debatable.........

REVIEW: First Impressions of the New Fujifilm X100T | Jeff Carter

REVIEW: First Impressions of the New Fujifilm X100T | Jeff Carter | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Conclusion

The X100T is a stunning camera that is worthy successor to the superb X100 / X100S.  The results it produces are top draw and I am very impressed with the performance over the past three days.  The main drawback is the camera is so new there is no RAW converter for Adobe Lightroom available yet, but that will come very soon and the JPEG files are excellent. On the plus side the camera is compatible with the batteries and WCL and TCL conversion lenses that I have for the X100, so I wouldn't need to replace any of the accessories that I already own. Would I buy a X100T?  I rejected the X100S because the improvements were not big enough to justify the upgrade costs, but the X100T has taken the next step that will be hard to ignore.  I will have to think long and hard about this because I still love using my original X100 but, for me, the X100T is the ultimate premium fixed lens camera on the market today! ......

REVIEW: Six Months with the Fujinon XF10-24mm f4R OIS | Jeff Carter

REVIEW: Six Months with the Fujinon XF10-24mm f4R OIS | Jeff Carter | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Six months ago I bought the ultra wide XF10-24mm f4 Fujinon (15-36mm equivalent), the sixth lens in my Fuji line up. I have always had an ultra wide angle lens in my photographic arsenal and while the Fujinon 14mm f2.8 (21mm) is an excellent wide angle lens, there were times when I missed the extra field of view offered by my old full frame 17-35mm f2.8 Nikon. So I decided to add the newly launched Fujinon wide angle zoom to my inventory in May of this year. The zoom range of 10mm to 24mm is very flexible making this lens a good all rounder.....

Fuji X-T1 Review :: Yep. It’s A Fuji | Zack Arias

Fuji X-T1 Review :: Yep. It’s A Fuji | Zack Arias | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

I have now had the Fuji X-T1 since February of this year. I have traveled to Dubai, Morocco, Cuba, and numerous places through the US with the XT and the new 10-24mm f4, 56mm 1.2, and 27mm 2.8 pancake lenses. I’ve shot street, portraits, personal work, and paid work with this camera and these lenses. Fuji sent the camera and lenses to me and then I picked up a second body because these are now my small camera work horses. I no longer own a single piece of DSLR gear. I shoot my PhaseOne on some jobs and I shoot Fuji’s for the rest. I do not foresee going back to DSLR’s any time soon. What can I say about Fuji cameras that I haven’t said before? They have soul. They are sharp. They are a joy to work with. They are conversation starters on set. They are small. They are quiet. They are a constant companion. I never said any thing like this about my Nikon or Canon gear. Not even my Phase One. The only reason I love my Phase is because of the image quality it produces. Otherwise, the Phase One camera body is a piece of crap and I hate it. It’s an old Mamiya 645 body with a few tweaks and a new badge slapped on the front. It’s a crap camera really. Oh how I hope and wish and pray and desire for the day Fuji gets back in the medium format game. I have begged and pleaded with them to make an X series medium format game changer. PLEASE!!! ......
