Controlling a Fuji X-T1 with the Fujifilm Camera Remote WIFi APP | Tom Grill

Controlling a Fuji X-T1 with the Fujifilm Camera Remote WIFi APP | Tom Grill | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

We wanted to do a straight down lifestyle photo of a group of friends eating together at a table. This called for the camera to be located directly overhead and centered on the table, which meant there was no way for me to operate it directly or to even look in the viewfinder or LCD. I didn't want to do an elaborate setup because we had many other scenes to do that day and I didn't want to waste any time. I immediately chose the Fuji X-T1 because its light weight made it very easy to suspend over the table with a simple pole cat setup. Additionally, the Fujifilm Camera Remote APP for wireless control of the camera is one of the best I have seen. I have it on my cell phone and on my tablet, and use it for situations just like this......

FUJIFILM X-T1 IN-PROGRESS REVIEW: CONCLUSIONS - GIANNI GALASSI PhotoGraphia

FUJIFILM X-T1 IN-PROGRESS REVIEW: CONCLUSIONS - GIANNI GALASSI PhotoGraphia | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it
Fujifilm X-T1 - Fujinon XF 35mm (53mm eq.) prime 1/680" f11 ISO 400 Converted into monochrome with Silver Efex Pro 2 Sorry I'm late, but my dayjob is getting very demanding lately, as it does every June and July (hey, I'm not complaining at all!).

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? ....

Fuji X Pro 1 | Steve Coleman | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

So what camera should I use for street photography? Well… thats like asking what car should I use to go shopping in! The easy answer of course is any camera, though there is no doubt in mind that different cameras give different experiences, which in turn can be the difference between enjoying the experience or feeling like your trying to take pictures wearing boxing gloves. At this point I should say I’m attaching some pictures with this post, not to demonstrate anything I’m about to say, you can see the technical quality of my pictures as they’re all taken with the Pro 1, this post is about the camera as more than positive EV or how fast it can auto focus. This post has nothing to do with the cameras technicalities. It has taken me 3 attempts to find what I consider to be the perfect camera for my needs, though I am still searching and looking for different ways to indulge in street photography. So where an I at the moment? Well I’m currently shacked up with the Fuji X Pro1. In my humble opinion the closest thing you’ll get to the classic rangefinder style that seems so engrained and used by photographers worldwide when shooting street style........

The Fuji 10-24mm - one month review | Paul Melling

The Fuji 10-24mm - one month review | Paul Melling | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

I’ve had my new Fuji 10-24mm lens for a month now and I thought I’d share a few thoughts and pictures with you.  The lens is quite chunky and heavy by Fuji XF standards but still nowhere near as bulky as the Nikon 16-35mm f4 lens that I sold to fund this purchase.  And am I glad I made the swop? Well the answer is a definite yes – not because of any huge gains in image quality but simply because I’m using the lens more that I was the Nikon.  Essentially that’s because the Fuji X-Series is more luggable. I’ve chosen a few photos below from my first month, including shots from a beach holiday in Cornwall (the subject of an earlier post), a visit to the beautiful Lake District in the North West of the UK and also a shot or two from my hometown of Preston. All the shots here were shot in RAW and then converted in Lightroom.  I’m still not convinced I’ve really got the most out of the lens yet and I’ve read some comments about in-camera jpegs being the way to go for the best results with this lens.  That’s an option I’ll certainly be trying.......

Fujinon XF27mm pancake lens! | OnCam Photography

Fujinon XF27mm pancake lens! | OnCam Photography | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

This lens is a really nice option if you just want to take your camera literally everywhere & not feel too serious, stand out, be obtrusive, & intimidating.. but don’t think for one minute this lens is a toy! After downsizing from a full DSLR kit carrying the XE2 + 18-55mm around you quickly get used to the size, and while it is a huge improvement you still feel the setup is not as small as you had imagined before switching to mirrorless. This tiny pancake lens transforms the whole shooting experience, & gives you confidence to take your camera everywhere......

Iceland with the Fuji XE1 / Fuji Travel Photography | Colin Nicholls | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

At last count I had visited Iceland a total of three times, the first I was an amature photographer and went with a Nikon D60 + 18-105 lens, the second I had got better and went with a D90 +24/50/135 lenses, the last time was after I fell for Fuji and went with 2 XE1's; 8mm, 18mm, 35mm, 60mm and 50-230mm lenses. I've blogged about my time in Iceland before but have decided to put this post together to keep it all in one place and show you some photography of this awesome place! One thing that keeps me coming back to Iceland is the quick changing nature of the weather and the raw unspoilt landscapes that greet you around every bend, as this was my third time out I was very much ready for what would be in store and some very good ideas of places I wanted to visit. All the photos here were shot on 2 Fuji XE-1's the size and weight of these cameras make them great for travel and the image quality is just incredible, at no point did I feel the need for anything more that the gear I had and would be happy to travel anywhere in the world with just this small bag of gear.......

Review: Fuji X-E2 | The Mistress | SLR Lounge

Review: Fuji X-E2 | The Mistress | SLR Lounge | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

As I write this, there are a few cameras dotting the landscape of my desk, sitting idly, waiting to be used and tested. I know their makers, their stats, and each is a fine piece of engineering in its own right. I can see the numbers written on them denoting their names, but frankly, they could be a host of other cameras in their indifference. I won’t name them, but for the most part, they’ve got about as much character as the wine I’m drinking. Actually, scratch that, the wine is developed enough to star in its own novella. Their lacking, however, has reason; like Pacific Rim cars are tools created to prop up economies of developing countries, as a rival for the moped and mule, these were produced to be tools. They are very utilitarian, function over form, and there’s nothing wrong with that. There’s another camera which I’ve just recently parted with, that’s very, very different though......

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!!! ......

The ART of BOKEH | Sven Schroeter

The ART of BOKEH | Sven Schroeter | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Not only is Bokeh beautiful, but it also happens to be a key story telling element. Once understood, it will open your eyes to new opportunities and improve your work by adding additional punch, wowing your audience. Our band name ‘Bokeh Monster’ came from the frequent use of the technique; shallow depth of field is one of the many ingredients to our unique style. By removing the distracting elements from a background through the use of shallow depth of field techniques, everyone we photograph can be compared on a even playing field. Context and placement are subtracted from the distraction equation, isolating and honing in on a subject's beauty for honest appreciation.......

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

I didn’t fall into the Fujifilm X camera system right away. It took time and several cameras to persuade me. First, the Fujifilm X100 caught my attention. The (very) slow AutoFocus was a pity but that little gorgeous looking camera had great features and a huge potential. Then came the Fujifilm X-Pro1. Killer look, interchangeable lenses, bigger and better AF (still pretty slow at that time) but Fuji was on the right tracks. This was two years ago. Next, I had to try the Fujifilm X100s. Far better than the X100. The AF was so much better/faster. Same look, different camera. January 2014, I bought the Fujifilm X-E2. It was small, cool looking, it only had an EVF (Electronic ViewFinder), and it had faster AF. I started with personal work such as the “Lazy afternoon” series. I was so surprised by its performance that I’ve decided to take it on professional jobs. It performed like a champ every time. I was hooked!.......

On vacation with Fujifilm X-T1 + 14mm + X100s | Lars Øivind Authen | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

I recently spend one week camping in the southern and south western part of Norway, on the coast line from Kristiansand to Stavanger. It's a beautiful area of Norway I think, especially in the summer. You don't have the nice deep fjords of western Norway, or the mountains of North Norway that goes steep into the sea - but this part of Norway has its beauty of its own I think. I could have used a lower ISO and 1/60 sec and gotten a sharp image - but the wind made the grass swayed in the wind so I bumped the ISO to 800. Also I wanted to use f/16 to get it nice and sharp from front to back. I travelled together with my wife. She is pregnant, and that made some impact of what I could and could not do. Most of my photos were taken during day time, in harsh sun light. Not the best time of the day for taking pictures. Still, I managed to get out some mornings on my own and take som shots, while she was sleeping.....

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.....

What's in the Bag - Italy for a Month | Dave Burns

What's in the Bag - Italy for a Month | Dave Burns | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

This last May, I was lucky enough to spend my honeymoon in Italy. I couldn’t go on a trip of this scale without some serious photography (luckily my wife already knew this) so I put a lot of thought into what gear I wanted to bring. I’ve been enjoying my Fuji X-T1 lately and, although the last trip I did of this length was with my full-frame Canon gear, this time I wanted to bring a much lighter kit. So what gear did I bring to Italy? The problem is, I’m a lazy photographer and changing lenses is sometimes a deterrent from shooting. In addition, my instincts from my African photo safaris mean I’m nervous unless I have backups. So even though I feel like I packed light, it’s all relative and some of my more hardcore street photographer friends will raise an eyebrow at my kit. I decided to bring two Fuji X-T1s (one mine, one rented from LensProToGo), each with a lens attached. I then brought a couple of other lenses to fill out my range...

I thought I would share some of my experiences with using the X-T1 for 12 days in Iceland. I come from a full frame Nikon background and all the big heavy f/2.8 lenses, etc. I always shot in raw, adjusted in Capture NX and never used live view. The X-T1 has changed the way I work. I’ll outline some of the things I liked and disliked about the X-T1 and point out a few mistakes I made on the way. Hopefully this will be of interest to new X-T1 owners.......

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........
