Really Right Stuff L-Plate for XT-1 and Battery Grip | Chris Bennett

Really Right Stuff L-Plate for XT-1 and Battery Grip | Chris Bennett | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Not long ago I wrote that the Really Right Stuff (RRS) L-Plate – the BVGXT1-L – for the Fujifilm XT-1 body and the VG-XT1 Battery Grip was in stock; you can see that post here. What I didn’t know at the time (as I got no shipping email) was that my L-Plate had already shipped; it arrived on Saturday (14th June), I had to get it from the Lincoln Parcel Force depot as there was £32.93 worth of duty to be paid........

Firmware V1.10 for X-T1 | Fujifilm Global

Firmware V1.10 for X-T1 | Fujifilm Global | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

The firmware update Ver. 1.10 from Ver. 1.00 incorporates the following issues:

Addition of compatibility with "XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR"
To ensure that autofocus performs as expected, upgrade the firmware for the camera.

Improvement of "Exposure compensation/exposure indicator" in EVF
Values are added to the scales of the indicator for better visibility.

Improvement of Movie-record button operability
To avoid an accidental movie shooting, the delayed time will become longer between the moment you press the button and a movie shooting starts or ends.

The phenomenon is fixed that images are not recorded with the set interval when "INTERVAL" in "INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING" is set to 5 sec or less. In this case, the setting of "IMAGE DISP." in "SCREEN SET-UP" will change to "OFF" automatically.

Precaution

If firmware updating fails, the camera may no longer operate correctly in some cases. Carefully read the notes provided here.Always use the fully-charged battery when updating the firmware as a basic manner. Never turn the camera off or attempt to use any of the camera controls while the firmware is being overwritten.Firmware updating requires approximately 90 seconds.Once the firmware has been updated, some data of the previous version cannot be restored.

Fuji 10-24mm zoom lens - a hands on review | Tom Grill

Fuji 10-24mm zoom lens - a hands on review | Tom Grill | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

There is only one super-wide lens I know of that can remain perfectly sharp into the image corners with a full open aperture, and that is the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8. A super wide angle zoom is a tough optical design to compute and gets extremely expensive when done right, if it can be done at all. With that in mind, Fuji was facing an uphill battle against the odds with its new XF 10-24mm f/4 zoom lens. Admittedly, it is a fixed f/4 and not f/2.8, but even so Fuji has been raising the bar with each new XF lens it produces. Question is: Can they do it again?....

Black and White Sydney | Daniel Incandela

Black and White Sydney | Daniel Incandela | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

In all my travels, Sydney has been the toughest opponent when it comes to jet lag. It will lull you to sleep, then dump cold water on you at 2am. This time I played it differently. You can’t fall asleep if you don’t stop moving. I landed in Sydney from LAX at 7am. I grabbed my camera and walked around a very quiet city, and for some reason, I chose to only shoot in black and white. I guess I wanted to see the city in a new way. There is something special about a city just waking up......

Fuji X-Pro 2 Full Frame Thoughts | Jorge Ledesma

Fuji X-Pro 2 Full Frame Thoughts | Jorge Ledesma | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

So the rumor mill is out and a possible Fuji X-Pro 2 is on the horizon for early or mid 2015. As Bob Dylan would say, "the times are changing." The Nikon D600 and Canon 6D came to fruition as affordable full frame cameras, well, not really affordable as $2,000 USD is not cheap by any means but within range of many more I suppose. Then we had the folks at Sony pumping out all sorts of full frame goodness in various shapes and forms and then there is Fujifilm X-Series with brave new sensor technology stirring the full frame pot (5DMK2, D700) and reaching in. The "reaching in" is arguable and I'm sure Dr. Boyer would say I'm way out of touch with sensor reality, but nonetheless, there seems to be a group of photographers that prefers the X-Trans sensor.......

FUJI X-T1: Has Mirrorless Finally Gone Pro? | Carlos Echenique

FUJI X-T1: Has Mirrorless Finally Gone Pro? | Carlos Echenique | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Fujifilm’s X-Series of cameras have set new standards for mirrorless camera systems. Combining a retro look and feel with cutting edge technology in an attempt to marry the old and new schools, Fuji’s latest entry, the Fujifilm X-T1 adds weather sealing, an industry leading EVF, truly outstanding lenses and pro level accessories packed in a small retro SLR package. Has the mirrorless camera finally gone pro? To be honest, the idea for the retro styled mirrorless camera really goes to Olympus with the OM-D series. I have owned and tested both the OM-D EM-5 and EM-1 and both are very well built, but Fuji came along and ate their lunch with the X-series of cameras starting with the X100, the X-Pro1, X-E1 & 2, and now the X-T1. My review will not cover the technical features of the camera. There are plenty of those already out on the web. My review will be on real-world usage of the camera both in studio, out in the field and while traveling........

Fujifilm X-T1 | Tim Moynihan by Wired

Fujifilm X-T1 | Tim Moynihan by Wired | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Most mirrorless cameras are happy being smaller, beginner-friendly, somewhat less-capable alternatives to DSLRs. But the Fujifilm X-T1 has a different goal in mind: It’s built to replace a DSLR camera entirely. Indeed, it’s hard to think of a camera that’s come closer. While there is perhaps no perfect size for any type of camera, the X-T1 feels just about right for what it can do. It’s big enough for a sizeable hand grip with textured rubber and all the knobs necessary for manual adjustments, but small enough to be more portable than a DSLR. Keep in mind that the X-T1 is closer in size to a DSLR, though. Forget about putting it in your pocket. Along with satisfying proportions, the X-T1 is built to withstand the elements with a weather-sealed body that operates down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit. It’ll keep out dust and sand, and shoot in the rain. Like many recent Fujifilm cameras, the X-T1 will appeal to photographers who like taking control. Almost everything is up front and easy to access. There are dials up top for ISO, shutter speed, and exposure compensation. Levers under those dials and on the front of the camera let you toggle shooting, metering, and focus modes. There are buttons all over the camera to lock focus and exposure, enable focus-assist features, and adjust the camera’s display settings. Six—six!—buttons are customizable, and the excellent Function Setting menu ensures you don’t get lost: It provides a map of each button’s setting and lets you change each function on the fly.......

Sony A7Regret and Fuji XT-1 Uncertainty | Andy Gallacher

Sony A7Regret and Fuji XT-1 Uncertainty | Andy Gallacher | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

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.....

Fuji Xt1 autofocus speed | Nick Lukey

Fuji Xt1 autofocus speed | Nick Lukey | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Given the number of questions asked about the speed of focus and frame rate of the new Fuji Xt1, yesterday I had an ideal opportunity to try this, and find out for myself how the camera coped with fast moving action or in this case wildlife. The settings I used were Capture rate set to CH/Auto ISO/ AF set to release priority/ Focus mode set to AFC/Face detect off/High performance off. Fortunately for me I chose a place where flying bird action is pretty constant throughout the day. A pair of Greylag geese spotted some feeding going on and flew across the lake for a look. Using the 55-200 zoom I aquired focus and hit the shutter, I shot 10 frames in total and only the last 2 frames showed oof, due to losing focus as the birds dropped into the water. Pretty amazed at this set, given the 55-200 is not the easiest lens to work with. The tracking works a treat. It was fortunate I guess  that the 2 birds stayed at a similar distance to each other. Hope you find some interest in this wee test.....

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.......
