From the Fujifilm X-E1 to the X-E2 | Randall Cipriano

From the Fujifilm X-E1 to the X-E2 | Randall Cipriano | fuji | Scoop.it


.....

I will reserve any comments about image quality till after I run it through a proper shoot but all-in-all, I’m happy and welcome all the improvements implemented on the X-E2. Physically, it looks like the same camera, but only after using it will you realize the differences and improvements are significant. It addresses a lot of the concerns actual users have pointed out with the X-E1 and to top it off, Fujifilm has managed to merge some of the great features of the last few X series cameras into it as well.

I’ve only had the unit for about a week now and I can’t wait to finally test it out in the field. Also, the great guys at Vanguard and Phottix Philippines sent over some awesome stuff that I will be showing you in the next few days and I will be working them along with X-E2 as I head to the land of BB cream and Kimchi in a hours from postings this......

Fuji X100S; Long Exposure | Donovan Bond

Fuji X100S; Long Exposure | Donovan Bond | fuji | Scoop.it


Long exposure photography is my favourite. I love the effect it creates with water and clouds, and it might be the last kind of photography that can’t natively be done with your smartphone, yet. I recently (finally) had a chance to put the X100S through its paces for long exposure photography and I came away very impressed. Here’s why.......

Fujifilm X-E2: Everything You Need To Know | Leigh Diprose | fuji | Scoop.it


Fujifilm X-E2 is here! The newest in Fujifilm’s interchangeable lens cameras has officially been announced! The new Fujifilm XE2, inherits the stylish retro looks of its predecessor, but includes many new enhanced features. So what are some of the differences between the Fujifilm X-E1 and the new X-E2 I hear you ask? I caught up with Warwick Williams, Fujifilm’s Australia’s Digital Camera Specialist to find out .....

When Low-End Doesn't Mean Low Quality: A Fujifilm X-M1 Review | MirrorLessons

When Low-End Doesn't Mean Low Quality: A Fujifilm X-M1 Review | MirrorLessons | fuji | Scoop.it


The release of the Fujifilm X-M1 marks an important step in the X line for the Japanese firm. Up until now, Fuji has concentrated its efforts on high-end interchangeable lens models such as the X-Pro 1 and high-end compact cameras such as the X100/s and X10/20 line. With the X-M1, Fujifilm has expanded its product line to include low-end mirrorless cameras and puts itself in direct competition with products like the Sony Nex-5/6 series or the Samsung NX300. At the time of writing this article, the X-A1, Fujifilm’s newest entry level model, has just been announced and the QX1 (same sensor as the X20) is also on the way. Some have criticised Fujifilm for spending more time on cheaper cameras instead of updating their high-end models, but that is going to change soon with the imminent announcement of the X-E2. Also, while the release of all these new models may lead us to think that Fujifilm wants to imitate other brands and saturate the market, in my opinion it is a simple consequence of a company wanting to increase its earnings. Actually, if you think about it, Fuji started the opposite way: the first models were for professionals and advanced enthusiasts and it has now turned its attention to the rest of the market, which of course cannot be ignored.

Simply, what Fujifilm is doing is filling new low-end cameras with technology that has been tried, tested and approved by professionals. I won’t dig more into Fuji’s marketing strategy because it isn’t my domain, but if we are to take anything away from this discussion, it is that the X-M1 may seem like a compromise for many things but not the most important aspect, image quality......

A Morning in La Jolla | Stephen Ip

A Morning in La Jolla | Stephen Ip | fuji | Scoop.it


During our trip to San Diego last weekend, I took advantage of our proximity to La Jolla by heading out to shoot at sunrise. At around 6:30 Sunday morning, we made our way to Children's Pool Beach where I made a few long exposure photographs of the sea wall and its surrounding areas. Here are a few of the images from our early morning outing that were shot using the X-Pro1 and XF 14mm.....

Street: Fuji X-Pro1 vs Canon 5D MKII | Dade Freeman

Street: Fuji X-Pro1 vs Canon 5D MKII | Dade Freeman | fuji | Scoop.it


On Friday I met up with Julie Edwards in a café, before putting her FujiFilm X-Pro 1 through its paces as we stalked the streets of Worthing. Julie had kindly agreed to share her knowledge, camera and time with me while we did a little street photography to compare our cameras and their abilities. Julie, a working professional photographer and Nikon shooter, reached into her small bag and brought out the Fujifilm X-Pro1. The first thing I noticed was that it has a retro die-cast aluminium alloy body and is clearly aimed at the DSLR user, being the bridge between the fixed lens mirrorless systems and the chunky DSLR world. Could this be the fabled DSLR killer? Julie has only had the camera for about a month, and already she says it will be her “go to” camera. Although it may not be as fast and work as well in low light as her DSLR, she has used it on a shoot and the client couldn’t tell the difference between her usual DSLR images and the ones taken with the X-Pro1. This bodes well and opens up a lot of opportunities. So, with coffee over and done with, it was time to hit the streets, cameras in hand. I popped on my 50mm lens to give me the same focal length as her 35mm (crop factor) although Julie did have the option to go to f/1.4, unlike me. The camera comes with a neck-strap but, much like the Canon EOS-M strap, it is pretty pointless and ends up wrapped around the wrist. :/ ....

CitraSolv & Photography | Karen Johnson

CitraSolv & Photography | Karen Johnson | fuji | Scoop.it


I am late posting this week because I was in Pennsylvania the entire weekend shooting some great abandoned places.  I hope to have something to show from at least one of the areas next week.  I work really long hours during the week as well as having a long commute so I get backed up on everything when I spend the entire weekend shooting.  A sacrifice I’ll gladly make anytime. I heard about this process of making paper for textured backgrounds through a Creativelive workshop I watched with the wonderful photographer, Jennifer Hudson.  She talked about using an old National Geographic and a natural cleaner/degreaser called CitraSolv to create textures that she uses on her photographs.  I looked it up on the web and there is actually an artist gallery on CitraSolv’s webpage.  What you do is take an old National Geographic (I purchased 164 of them for $32 from a very nice man on Craigslist), you tear out the advertisements and either working outside or inside at a table that is covered (I had an old shower curtain that covered my kitchen table) you pour or brush the Citrasolv on the pages of the National Geographic and the CitraSolv reacts with the ink and paper and creates this .....

Fair Head with the Fujifilm X-M1 | David Cleland

Fair Head with the Fujifilm X-M1 | David Cleland | fuji | Scoop.it


Suncream was the last thing anyone expected to need on the 5th of October but as we made our way from Ballycastle and over Fair Head (Bhinn Mhór) the weather displayed an uncharacteristically summer feel. In an aim to travel light I packed the Fujifilm X-M1, Fujinon 14mm and 27mm lenses into my Millican bag and ventured out. This was my first outing with the recently released Fujinon 27mm pancake lens. It is an ultra compact lens that equates to 40mm on a full frame camera and in my opinion the size is perfect alongside the Fujifilm X-M1 camera. Most the day I was shooting with the 27mm but switched to 14mm at the top of the cliff when I knew the camera would face less abuse as the terrain levelled out. Note : click any of the photographs to view large on flickr.....
