Comparing the Fuji X Cameras. Which one is Right For You?

Comparing the Fuji X Cameras. Which one is Right For You? | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
In just a few short years, Fujifilm has built an impressive camera system from the ground up. Starting with the introduction of the X100, which they launched in September 2010, they’ve since expanded their lineup to include a number of highly advanced interchangeable and fixed lens compact cameras that have completely stirred up the photography world. Shooters of all styles and levels have fallen in love with their compact, classic body styling and with the remarkable image quality that these cameras produce. So much so that an increasing number of amateurs and pros alike have replaced their entire DSLR rigs with Fuji X camera systems and haven’t looked back. Even straight JPEGS from these cameras look awesome, which has prompted many people to rethink their RAW-only shooting style. The images are incredibly sharp and combined with Fuji’s image processing technology, color reproduction is stunning. I’ve used a number of Fuji cameras during the past three years and although I haven’t dumped my DSLR gear yet, it’s seeing much less use with each passing year. The built-in film simulations and different shooting modes offer wide creativity and the resolution of the APC-C X-Trans sensor which is found on most of the models is certainly good enough for any pro work. Here’s a quick comparison between all of the current Fuji X cameras in the lineup to see which one is right for you.

Fuji XF 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens -- a hands-on review | Tom Grill

Fuji XF 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens -- a hands-on review | Tom Grill | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
ypically, all-in-one zooms are full of compromises that cut to the core of their quality level. Convenient they are, but at what price? There has been an enthusiastic anticipation of the Fujinon XF 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR zoom because most of us have a trust based on experience and know that if anyone could pull off a decent do-everything lens it would be Fuji. Not that we would expect such a lens design to come up to the optical quality level of the Fuji primes, but perhaps it could approach the level of the top notch Fuji standard zooms, such as the 18-55mm and 55-200mm. With this in mind, I conducted some of my tests by comparing the new lenses performance to that of the other two zooms. I wanted to know whether this lens could be a substitute for both of the others in a compact do-it-all walk-around kit.....

Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Camera Review: Fast Shooter

Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Camera Review: Fast Shooter | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
Not everyone is keen on retro digital cameras, but those who are — be they enthusiasts or pros — can tap some analogue nostalgia with the Fujifilm X-T1. The latest addition to Fujifilm’s popular X-series mirrorless cameras, the midrange, 16-megapixel X-T1, is available body only for $1300 (list price) or with an 18-55mm kit lens for $1700. Its old-school design is attractive and, like the $2,750 Nikon Df, is outfitted with mechanical dials for adjusting exposure and other parameters. Those who prefer the beach or the boat to dry land, will appreciate the camera’s weatherproof sealing. And, the X-T1's great autofocus and continuous shooting are fast enough to keep up with skittish wildlife, high-energy dancers, and sports such as mountain biking or skiing. (For weatherproof compact cameras, see Best Waterproof and Rugged Cameras of 2014.)

Review |  Fuji's XF 23mm f/1.4. With A 35mm Full Frame FOV, Is It A Rival For The X100S? | SLR Lounge | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
One of the things you’ve got to love about Fuji is the company’s ambition, and the gamble it’s been taking on the X-Series. Not only have they been putting out a veritable full bar of lenses compared to say, Sony’s appertif for its A7, but the quality of said lenses is so high. Management could’ve taken guidance solely from the perspective of a P&L sheet and decided they wanted to provide many options on the cheap, by creating cheap lenses, but instead have gone for the throat of quality. You can almost tell just by looking at them, but once you pick them up, you know. The XF 23mm f/1.4 fits this mold, and is already a staple in their growing list of gorgeous primes......

Why I Chose Fujifilm Over Full-Frame | The Phoblographer

Why I Chose Fujifilm Over Full-Frame | The Phoblographer | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
With a few weeks to go before the end of May, when I was due to fly out to Istanbul for a summer internship, I found that I was in the market for a new camera. I’ve been a Sony shooter for the past four years, and since I would be photographing quite a lot for the internship, I wanted to have another camera. If my a580 bit the dust, it would be far too expensive to replace it here in Istanbul, and I couldn’t take that chance. I was caught between an a99 and any of Fujifilm’s offerings. I ultimately went with the X-Pro1. Here’s why..........

Zeiss Touit 12mm | Fuiji X-Pro 1 | Tewfic El-Sawy | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
Well, I succumbed. I've been think about another prime lens for my Fuji X-Pro1 for quite some time, and having the XF 18mm f2.0 "pancake", I just couldn't make up my mind between the XF 35mm f1.4, the XF 23mm f1.4 or the XF 27mm f2.8. I tossed around the pros and cons of various Fujifilm X Mount Lenses, and finally decided on the Zeiss 12mm f2.8 Touit. It’s a solid, all glass lens that feels well made, and while it's manufactured in Japan (as if that is a downside), it feels 'German Zeiss'. It's essentially an 18mm f2.8 equivalent on the Fuji X-Pro1 1.5x crop sensor. And it's hand-built........

Fuji Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro Lens

Fuji Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro Lens | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
There was much high-toned and fancy to-do when Fuji launched its X line of cameras, and time has proven the line warranting of such fanfare. Each evolution seems to offer the discerning shooter so much of what’s wanted, with few cons. The launch of the X-Pro1, the first interchangeable lens camera in the series, saw 3 primes announced with it. One of which was the Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 R Macro XF. That’s a mouthful (as all their lenses are). It was the first telelens for the X-mount, and though it’s not new, continues to generate some buzz.

Real World Images w/ Fuji XF 18-135 3.5-5.6 OIS Weather Resistant Lens

Real World Images w/ Fuji XF 18-135 3.5-5.6 OIS Weather Resistant Lens | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
Over the last couple of months I have been playing around a lot with the Fuji XT1 camera that I got when I was out in Dubai. I have been on a campaign to tell everyone about how well that this camera has been performing. It’s been a completely different experience for me – finally a small portable camera that has a great featureset and amazing image quality. Not too long ago, the folks over at Fuji asked if I would be interested in taking their new 18-135 Weather Resistant lens out for a spin and see what kind of images I would get of it. I jumped at the opportunity. I figured after some playing around i would share my findings – grouped in projects from “Oh, that’s nice – a little sprinkle” to “Man, you shouldn’t even be out there in that weather.” I wont focus too much on the technical particulars out there – I’ll just give my anecdotal experiences and share the images I did so that you may be the judge of it.

REVIEW: My Thoughts on the X-T1 after 10,000 images in 2 Months | Jeff Carter

REVIEW: My Thoughts on the X-T1 after 10,000 images in 2 Months | Jeff Carter | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
ConclusionThe X-T1 is an impressive camera and while not 100% perfect it demonstrates how far Compact System Cameras have come in a few short years. For me they are the perfect tools for my work. CSCs are not ideal for every type of photography (professional sports photography for example) but I have proven on this blog that the X-T1 is capable of getting usable images even in these situations. For anyone contemplating a mirrorless Compact System Camera I can highly recommend the Fujifilm X-Series because the positives I have listed above far outweigh the problems I have found. No camera system is perfect for all types of photography, you choose the camera that suits the type of photography you want to specialise in. At the end of the day the X-T1 is my chosen tool of my trade and I certainly don't regret my choice two months and 10000 frames in......

First hands on experiences with a Fuji X100s | Matt Evans

First hands on experiences with a Fuji X100s | Matt Evans | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
So to summarise my little experience with the X100s, overall this is a fantastic camera. Sure there's a few niggly bits like the short battery life, soft images when shooting wide open and weird skin smoothing at high iso when shooting jpegs. But nothing that would seriously put me off this camera. All the important things are there, high iso performance, fast lens, image quality is excellent once stopped down beyond f4, the images are sharp and its a devilishly good looking camera. Fuji have done a great job at making this a great everyday walk around camera. Some would say its the perfect camera for street photography, not being a street photography I cant really say. When I first got it I was worried the 35mm lens wouldn't be wide enough but soon found taking 2 extra steps backwards solved this. In some ways shooting with this is like shooting with an iphone, you never hear anyone complain the lens isn't wide enough or long enough - they just get on and move their feet. Of course Fuji has released a couple of screw on lens adapters for those that *really* need the extra width. Personally I'm more intrigued by the telephoto adapter but the size of it kind of negates the point of the X100. As a friend once said, as soon as you have to carry a camera which doesn't fit in a pocket you may as well take your slr. I think I have to agree, yes you could get a small interchangeable system like the XE-2 but the whole point of the X100s is its size, its a light highly capable camera that can just be there in your bag or coat ready to go. After spending some time with it and allowing the excitement to wear off, would I consider getting one? Absolutely. I can see this fitting in nicely as one of my travel cameras. All thats left now is to convince the wife I need to add one in my camera bag!

Fuji X-E2 - The Mistress

Fuji X-E2 - The Mistress | Fuji 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.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 vs. Fujifilm X-T1 - A Game of Mirrorless Thrones | MirrorLessons

Olympus OM-D E-M1 vs. Fujifilm X-T1 - A Game of Mirrorless Thrones | MirrorLessons | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
While Nikon and Canon are the only viable competitors for main throne of the digital photography world (at least for now), the battle for the mirrorless throne is much more fascinating. There are many kingdoms (a.k.a. brands) trying to triumph by creating new gear (sometimes too much) in a contentious territory (market). While we could argue about the presence of too many cameras today (and let’s face it, we don’t need all of them), this rise in competition that emerged a few years ago has also brought about some interesting changes. One of them is that mirrorless cameras now have a more serious role, attracting not only the amateur or the enthusiast but also the professional. Two of the most notable players in this game of mirrorless thrones are the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the Fujifilm X-T1. The first comes from a company that greatly contributed to creating the mirrorless market in the first place. The E-M1 is the result of years of experience. The company created what is probably the first fully mature mirrorless camera aimed at both enthusiasts and professional photographers. The Fujifilm X-T1 is part of a younger system that has already shown tremendous potential. The X-T1 while not perfect is the most advanced X camera to date and proof that the Fuji X system could rapidly ascend the throne. If we put these two advanced cameras face to face, only an epic battle could come of it........

Love The Image - The New Fuji 18-135mm

Love The Image - The New Fuji 18-135mm | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it
A few weeks ago, Fuji kindly asked me to take a look at their new XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens which is due to be released soon. They asked me to put it through it’s paces and shoot some sample images for them to review. Now, I am not going to write a super in-depth technical assessment of the lens – there will be many who will do that once the fully finished product is released. But, I have been using the lens on almost every shoot over the last 6 weeks or so. I’ve shot racing, polo and also some landscapes – so have given the lens a real ‘hands on’ test. And I love what I’ve seen… For me, the focal range is brilliant – it will certainly be (and yes, I will buy one with my own hard earned cash!) my ‘go to’ lens for general everyday use it’s so versatile. I’ve really pushed the focussing and tracking capabilities by shooting two of the fastest equestrian sports there are, plus put it to test on a landscape shoot where things were a lot more laid back!
