Sony α7 / α7R First Impressions Review: Digital Photography Review

Sony α7 / α7R First Impressions Review: Digital Photography Review | Fokal | Scoop.it

We've been shooting with Sony's Alpha 7 and Alpha 7R over the past few weeks to get insight into how the compact full-frame cameras behave. While the two models are twins, they're by no means identical, with each sibling very quickly showing its own, distinct personality. We'll be publishing more in the coming weeks as we move towards completing our review, but we wanted to share our perspective now that we've had some experience to inform our opinion.

Further firmware upgrade 05.12.2013 available for Fujifilm’s flagship X-Pro1 camera | Fujifilm Global

Further firmware upgrade 05.12.2013 available for Fujifilm’s flagship X-Pro1 camera | Fujifilm Global | Fokal | Scoop.it


FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) will be releasing another new firmware upgrade for its flagship Fujifilm X-Pro1 compact system camera on November 28th which will offer users enhancements to operability and functionality. This latest firmware upgrade is being released in response to customer demand and will offer X-Pro1 users the chance to update their model to incorporate functionality available on the most recent X series cameras launched in October 2013. The X-Pro1 is set to continue as the company’s flagship X series model, and Fujifilm is striving to keep the level of technology offered on this product as up to date as possible so that purchasers of the X-Pro1 will have greater longevity of use.

[Release date of the new firmware]
5th December 2013 (Thu.) GMT 05:00/JST 14:00

[Firmware version]
FUJIFILM X-Pro1: Ver. 3.10

[Main contents of the firmware update]

    1. Improve the cover range and accuracy of the bright frame in the OVF

    The cover range of the bright frame displaying the shooting area in the optical viewfinder has been improved so that a field of view closer to the actual image can be checked. By maintaining the position of the bright frame with parallax compensation during AF lock, the shooting area can be checked even when letting go of the shutter release.

    2. See the exposure setting in live-view and histogram

    The images and histogram will reflect current exposure levels (with the shutter speed and aperture set during manual exposure also displayed on the image). In scenarios where the live view and the final shot will appear differently, eg: when using flash, this setting can be turned off.

    3. Aperture and shutter speed can be changed once AE lock is selected

    The aperture or shutter speed can be changed while maintaining exposure (EV value) with the AE lock button. The photographer has the ability to tweak settings down to the very last moment before shooting.

    4. The default and maximum sensitivity and minimum shutter speed can be set when ISO AUTO is selected

    When selecting “AUTO” in the ISO setting, users can also set standard ISO, Maximum ISO and a low-speed shutter limit. The Low-speed shutter limit has been extended to 1/500 seconds.

    5. New fuctionality allowing you to edit image filenames

    An image filename (DSCF***) is automatically allocated to each picture when shooting, this can now be changed to your filename of choice.* This added functionality is useful when organising the images after shooting, and sorting the images into groups.

    * It can be changed to a 4-letter filename when selecting “sRGB” and a 3-letter filename when selecting “Adobe RGB” for the color space.

    6. Change of numbering for images shot using continuous shooting

    When shooting using continuous shooting, only the first image is currently displayed in full screen and subsequent frames are displayed in small on the bottom right, and the file number was set as “S+7-digit number”. With the new firmware, all frames in continuous shooting are displayed as full screen shots in playback. The file number has also been altered to follow numerically as per standard single shots, thereby allowing uniform management of images after shooting.

    7. Improvement of RAW file conversion function

    When developing RAF images in-camera using the built-in RAW file converter, the firmware upgrade improves the flow by taking you back to the original RAF image once the conversion has been done, whereas before it left you with the converted JPG file on screen and the user had to go back to the next RAF file manually.

Details on improvements 2, 3, 4 and 5 are available in the operation manual on the support page below.

    * This firmware is exclusive to the FUJIFILM X-Pro1.

Step aside Leica, the Fuji X-Pro1 is here! | Paul Komarek | Fokal | Scoop.it


As you may know, I'm not one to recommend a product unless I own the product myself and can attest to its worthiness to make my list of recommendations, and that holds true for any product whether it's an inexpensive filter or a multi-thousand dollar camera system. In fact, until now, I have not recommended a camera system outside of Canon's lineup simply because I haven't found one worthy of recommendation. That changed when I got my hands on Fuji's X-Pro1 camera system and began putting it through its paces. To start, this is not your typical pro camera--it's not a bulky SLR or a point-and-shoot, but rather a mirrorless, hybrid rangefinder system. In fact the closest thing I can relate this camera system to is the Leica M9 digital rangefinder. The Leica M series rangefinders have been in a league of their own for years, however, that has now changed with the birth of the Fuji X-Pro1. I know that by saying that, I'm making a very large claim to fame for the X-Pro1 but in this review, I intend to show you why Leica now has some competition--in fact, with a price point of $1,200 compared to Leica's $7,900, it's some serious competition! Fuji initially introduced the FinePix X100 which was a large-sensor compact with a cool retro style, very much mimicking the Leica bodies with its manual control knobs and sleek, sturdy build. Underneath that sleek, sturdy build, however, was an array or modern technologies aimed at producing pro-grade image quality. It was no surprise then when less than a year later Fuji announced the X-Pro1 with its interchangeable lens system--the first mirrorless camera system aimed specifically at professional photographers.....
