Fuji x100s review - Photography Tips & Reviews | Shuttertastic

Fuji x100s review - Photography Tips & Reviews | Shuttertastic | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Today we are reviewing the Fuji x100s a very cool retro style compact camera that packs a punch on the inside.    The x100s also sports a 23mm (35mm equivalent)  f/2 fixed prime lens, the same as the x100. They have made quite a few improvements from its predecessor the Fuji x100, the manual focus is now very responsive and…works! and the auto focus is so much faster and accurate due to the On-sensor phase detection… I know that’s geek talk but believe me it is soooo much better.  They also moved the AF button from left side to the right top button wheel and add a “Q” button that brings up a quick menu that allows you to change common settings quickly without fumbling around in the menu.

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! .....

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 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.........

Fujifilm X100S and Sony A7 comparison

Fujifilm X100S and Sony A7 comparison | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

So what conclusions have I drawn from this comparison? Mainly that for how and what I shoot, the APS-C sensors on the X100S and X-Pro1/X-T1 are good enough. Based on the results of my completely unscientific comparison and the fact that I rarely make large prints, I really can't find any reason to consider a move to Sony. It's not that the Sony A7 (and A7R which I haven't used) aren't great cameras. It's just that for my needs and preferences, the Fuji X Series cameras and lenses simply suit me better.

Sony Alpha A7S review - Pocket-lint | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it
Just like the original A7, the A7S is mini marvel with a massive sensor. It's the new 12-megapixel chip that's the main point of interest as image quality is the cleanest out of the current trio of A7 cameras available. That will benefit those who spend a lot of time low-light shooting using ISO 1600 and above. And there's plenty available above that thanks to the headline maximum ISO 409,600 option.

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.....

The Fuji X-T1, the 56mm f1.2 lens and the City | Gabor Nagy | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Ok, the tittle says it all and the city is still Dublin. When I go for a photo walk I normally use my little X100s, that's is the camera I always have with me. Although it took a little while to get use to it, I was always a 50mm guy, rather than 35mm, but now I love to shoot streets with both focal lengths. What about the 56mm f1.2 lens that I acquired last summer. Well so far I used it for weddings, portraits and product shots, but not during my photo walks. And I love this lens, it's fast, super sharp, still small and doesn't weight a ton. It's probably not people's first choice for street photography, on Fuji's APS-C sensor it translates into 85mm, but needles to say I really enjoyed using it on the streets. The last couple of occasions I headed into the city I limited myself to the Fuji X-T1 with the aforementioned lens attached to it and here are some of the results from this experiment, they are also part of my Streets of Dublin collection. Enjoy. .....

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! ......

Graphite Silver: My X-T1 review part 2b | Jonas Rask

Graphite Silver: My X-T1 review part 2b | Jonas Rask | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Contrary to many of my (street) photographer colleagues I actually like my cameras silver and black as opposed to black only. The whole stealthy aspect of black in black is in my eyes a bit overrated. You basically have a big lens with shiny glass attached to the front of it. (Placing Gaffertape in front of that can lead to some weird artefacts in your images :P ) So this part of the review is basically just my saying some stuff about the design of an object. Apart from a firmware upgrade this thing is exactly the same as the black version. Innards, same. EVF, same, Amazing controls, same. So lets talk about the look of this thing. HO-LY SMOKES! This thing is so amazingly well designed that I actually place it on my nightstand. Geeky, yes. But this thing is the next-sexiest thing I’ve ever handled. (Wifey, love ya! ) .........

Sony A7Regret and Fuji XT-1 Uncertainty

Sony A7Regret and Fuji XT-1 Uncertainty | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it
Andy Gallacher is an International TV Correspondent

The amount of detail from the A7R's gargantuan sensor is breath taking. 

Alright so I don’t have much to whine about. I own two of the finest
mirrorless cameras on the market and have a job that constantly puts me in
front of interesting things to take pictures of. But none the less a
compare and contrast between the Fuji and Sony at this point is something
that's warranted. You should know that this isn’t my first foray into the
mirrorless wonderland, for the past couple of years I owned, swore at and
eventually fell in love with a Fuji X-Pro1. Like many people I loved the
handling, look and image but sometimes wanted to throw the bloody thing off
a bridge. Focusing speed, shutter lag and a myriad of other issues were a
pain at first but after a series of firmware updates things got much
better. But I was still yearning for a full frame camera and then along
came the Sony A7R.

Sony A7R and the incredible Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 in Haiti. Notice how it
handles extreme shade and light.

I ordered it immediately and got one of the first out the door but
initially found it to be an unforgiving little beast. It seemed as unwieldy
and alien to me as the X-Pro1 did when I first bought that and the tiniest
adjustments made huge differences to the images I was getting. Regret set
in, compounded by blogs about light leaks and shutter vibration, but I'm
not easily dissuaded (and I'd spend a wad of cash) and despite everything
this little boxy bugger was starting to grow on me. Maybe it was going from
APSC to FF that was causing me problems initially but with each consequent
frame came vast improvements. And then there is the image quality. The
sheer amount of detail, information and latitude that this little metal box
exudes is beyond impressive. Having said that all that processing power and
megapixels in the world won't help you take pictures of your kids. Movement
is no friend of the A7R but the same can't be said of the Fuji X-T1. Now
the first thing I thought when I frantically unboxed the X-T1 was just how
good looking this thing is. It's the Brangelina of cameras, I mean this
thing is just beautiful and it's not skin deep. It feels leaps and bounds
ahead of the X-Pro1 in terms of speed and usability. For me the key reason
to trade up from the X-Pro1 wasn't the image quality but the tracking focus
and ability to fire off 8 frames a second. I recently got a chance to test
that under pretty tough circumstances and X-T1 passed with flying colors.
When I took shots of the Angola Prison Rodeo in Louisiana I was at the back
of the stadium in the press box at the long end of the 55-200 and barely
missed a shot. Tell me these shots don't look at least as good as anything
you've seen come out of a hulking DSLR and huge lens? 

The XT-1 with the Fuji 55-200 lens and 8fps is a compelling combination.

The combination worked so well that I used it to publish a picture gallery
for work.

A7R in the Wynwood district of Miami.

So the big question I guess might be which camera is the best? Well if you
put a gun to my head and forced me to choose I would probably take the
bullet; I just love both of these cameras that much. The A7R is amazing for
landscape, urban and portrait shots and suits the pace that I work at for
the most part. The Fuji replicates all that, albeit with much smaller files
and detail, and throws in the bonus of being fast and, I think, better
looking. If you're on a  budget the Fuji will not displease but it's what I
can do with the A7R files that continues to impress. Pictures that I have
been convinced were average or just lost have turned out to be
stunning. But whenever I am packing for another trip I go through the same
dilemma - Fuji or Sony. It's most definitely a first world problem but the
fact that I lose sleep over which of these small and highly capable cameras
to take with me is a testament to how much choice and quality mirrorless
shooters have these days!

A7R - forgiveness is a wonderful thing....

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, one of the major downsides of the exceptional Sony A7, A7r and A7s full-frame mirrorless cameras is the lack of native lenses, but Sony and ZEISS are working hard to remedy that.

Just last week ZEISS debuted the Loxia line of FE lenses, and today Sony introduced a brand new wide-angle lens and teased several primes at Photokina.
