X100s v X-Pro1 - Comparing Two Favourites | Dave Young

X100s v X-Pro1 - Comparing Two Favourites | Dave Young | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Having owned my X100s for just a little over a week now and more or less taken it everywhere, I thought it would be an idea to talk about my initial impressions of it against my X-Pro1 which through 12 months of ownership I’ve had a bit of a love/hate relationship with. At times I feel the X-Pro1 is the best camera I’ve ever owned and at times I’ve felt I should sell up and start over with a completely different system. Coming from a pretty simple DSLR system of a Canon 5D Mark1 and a couple of primes to the Fuji X-Pro1 was certainly an eye opener for sure. Having always had that nagging feeling in the back of my mind that the X100 was the camera I really should own, I had the option to pick one up recently. I could have added another lens, or maybe even two to my X-Pro1 but felt now was the time to finally buy into the X100. I picked up a soon to be replaced almost new X100s which is perfect for everyday carrying around and with the 23mm fixed focal length is ideal for just about, well everything.......

10-24mm ƒ/4 vs. Primes | Fuji vs. Fuji

10-24mm ƒ/4 vs. Primes | Fuji vs. Fuji | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Since I made the jump from DSLR to mirrorless, I had been waiting for the lens that would fill the void left by my 14-24mm ultra-wide to wide angle zoom. It was on the roadmap, but months away, and Fujifilm didn’t have a prime that that got even close to a 14mm full frame equivalent. 3rd party offerings like Zeiss’s Touit 12mm got us closer, but still not quite to the width I was used to, and its sharpness had been called into question. Fujifilm’s FUJINON XF 10-24mm ƒ/4 covers an extraordinary range, from 15mm, all the way to 36mm. That’s 1mm narrower on the wide end than I had on full frame, but a full 12mm more on the opposite end of the focal range. The question is, can the 10-24mm ƒ/4 produce photos of a standard of quality that truly realizes its convenience? ....

Fujifilm XE1 vs Fuji XPro1 Camera | Ben Evans

 

English Photographer Ben Evans compares the Fuji XE1 and XPro1 cameras in Barcelona. Hand-on photography with several photographs made with the cameras during the review.

The balance is that the Fuji XE1, while lacking the hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder makes up for this with a cheaper price, upgraded EVF (electronic viewfinder), built-in flash and slightly smaller size. It was therefore the 'winner' in this little hands-on camera test.

Many thanks to Hiromi from www.HiromiTorres.com for shooting this video! If you'd like to get in touch and contribute to a microphone for her so that future tutorials and reviews sound better, she'd really appreciate it!....

The trinity: Fujifilm X-Pro1 vs. X-E1 vs. X100 (Part 5) - The decision | Alexander Sasha Starcevic

The trinity: Fujifilm X-Pro1 vs. X-E1 vs. X100 (Part 5) - The decision | Alexander Sasha Starcevic | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it


This is the 5th (and last) part of my comparison of the "trinity": the Fujifilm X100, X-Pro1 and X-E1. In the past posts I have covered some of the aspects that were most important tome. In this last post I will cover some remaining differences and will also let you in on my decision.

I am keeping the Fujifilm X100

First, I want to get this out of the way: although from the same "X-family", I feel the X100 is quite a different camera than the X-Pro1 or the X-E1. It has a fixed lens and with that fixed lens  it is compact enough to fit into the pocket of my jacket. So I can always carry the X100 with me - whether I go skiing with my kids or for a drink with a couple of friends (the two photos in this page were taken in such situations).

Although 23mm (35mm-equivalent) is not my favorite focal length, it's very versatile - and it has all the physical controls and a great viewfinder....

60mm ƒ/2.4 vs. 56mm ƒ/1.2 | Fuji vs. Fuji

60mm ƒ/2.4 vs. 56mm ƒ/1.2 | Fuji vs. Fuji | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

While these lenses are fairly close in focal length, they are clearly built for different purposes. I’ve been waiting for a portrait lens for almost a year now, ever since I sold my Nikon 85mm ƒ/1.4 AF-D. The FUJINON XF 56mm ƒ/1.2 fills that void admirably aside from the true focal length difference, and is actually usable out to the edges of the frame unlike the Nikon. Finally I can get back to portrait work. The FUJINON XF 60mm ƒ/2.4 Macro seems built for carefully considered images and precise focusing. It was always sort of a stop gap for Fujifilm shooters wanting a flattering portrait lens, and it still is the prime to beat for most flattering focal length in my view. It’s a very good lens and does what it does well, but it’s not a dedicated portrait lens, nor was it ever intended to be. I always figured I’d borrow a 60mm ƒ/2.4 for this comparison, but with the support of my awesome readers, I was able to afford to buy one, and I’m happy to have it. Not only so I can continue testing and adding to articles like these, but macro work is something I haven’t had a chance to do much of and the 60mm ƒ/2.4 is a great starting point. I can also see myself packing it instead of the 56mm ƒ/1.2 for landscape shooting since it’s so much lighter and very sharp edge to edge. 39mm filters aren’t exactly expensive either.......

A few thoughts on the Sony Nex 6 and the Fuji X-E1 | Mike Kobal

A few thoughts on the Sony Nex 6 and the Fuji X-E1 | Mike Kobal | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Better late then never. I finally had the chance to play with the Sony Nex 6 and the new collapsible 16-50mm kit lens. First thing I noticed was the size of the lens, retracted, it is about the same size as the Fujinon 18mm f2 and looked proportionally “correct” on the Nex body. There was no time for an in depth comparison between the Fuji X-E1 since I only had the camera for half a day. Instead, I will try to summarize my impressions of both cameras.....

 

As a purist with no interest in video, the choice is easy. Fuji X-E1. Anyone serious about video, the Nex 6 is a no brainer. I hope this helps some of you to make a decision. PS: I was also interested to find out how the 16-50mm collapsible lens performs, esp when compared to Sony’s monster flagship 18-200mm and managed to shot a quick test. Should have it up in a couple of days.
