Verdict

The Fujifilm X-E2 gets plenty right. Although, ultimately, it's a subtle upgrade compared to its predecessor. If you’re after a CSC that’s all about image quality then look little further. We also love the hands-on layout of the build, and both retro style and retro approach to taking pictures thanks to physical aperture dials on the XF lenses. That £799 body-only price point might seem like a lot of money, because it is, but there’s a physical quality here that can be seen from a mile away. On the downsides battery life remains the same so-so performer of its predecessor, the so-called improved autofocus might be faster but isn't consistently accurate, while there could be more lenses available in the XF range to further widen appeal. But the available lens options - from primes to more "consumer" zoom lenses - is slowly growing and the quality is great. If you’re an action photographer then don’t kid yourself, this camera won’t be suitable. But if you’re after a camera that successfully marries the old school of thought with the new in a visually striking package then there's a lot to love in the Fujifilm X-E2. For those low-mid ISO sensitivities its image quality that's the real sell......

For a long time I have dreamed of a smaller camera, one with plenty of power that can also be easily carried around all day. I must admit that I rarely carry my big Canon EOS Mark 5D iii with me when I`m on the move – you know; traveling, walking, family trips and so on. It´s simply to heavy for me. I only use it for work related projects. So I always end up taking everyday pictures and travel pictures with my iPhone — it’s small and portable and always with me. It´s an easy choice and works well in many cases. But as much as I love to play with iPhone photography, the quality often bugs me! I started a hunt for something better than an iPhone camera and something much smaller than my Canon DSLR. I was looking for a camera that I could fit into my little lady handbag without killing my shoulders and back, something that captured amazing quality pictures, had a nice and easy to use design, didn´t make loud noises and had changeable lenses. After looking into many different pocket-sized camera´s and reading endless of reviews the choice became clear. I choose Fuji X-E1......

X not Y or Z, PerfeXtion? | Nick Draig | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it


We photographers can be a sentimental bunch. We have long and fond memories and often prefer familiarity to change. For me, as I work professionally and teach, the quality of print is and always will be my benchmark for my tools of choice. If my film and or camera can produce what my mind sees and a quality print, I am a happy photographer. Since starting with photography many years ago I chose the film that gave me the results I desired. I don't shoot much film these days, but when I do load some Medium Format or some 5 x 4 I am still comforted when I open that vivd green box. I know the quality is there and my prints will be as gorgeous as they always have been. Sentimental perhaps, nostalgic certainly, but I trust Fuji Film. Now I shoot predominantly digital but my choice of tool is no less important. I want something that not only produces the highest quality prints I am used to but is also a pleasure to carry and use. Something that compliments my style and does not fight me too much. Something that works with me and not against me. We live in an ever accelerating technological surge. New equipment is seemingly announced weekly and our choices expand to dizzying proportions. Choice is good, yet if you are like me when walking down the breakfast cereal aisle of any supermarket, too much choice can be confusing rather than helpful.........

X100S vs. 27mm ƒ/2.8 | Fuji vs. Fuji

X100S vs. 27mm ƒ/2.8 | Fuji vs. Fuji | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it

Possibly one of the most asked about comparisons before the 23mm ƒ/1.4 was announced was how the FUJIFILM X100S with its fixed 23mm ƒ/2 lens stacked up against the FUJINON XF 27mm ƒ/2.8 on an X-E1 (or X-E2). Fuji fans wanted to know—in order to get such a small camera package—did they need to buy an X100S, or would they be ok to add the 27mm ƒ/2.8 to their current body? The interchangeable lens and body combination is quite similar in size to the X100S (assuming one is using an X-E1 or X-E2), and slightly lighter at 428g compared to 445g for the X100S. Given the FUJINON 23mm ƒ/2 lens has been honed to work as well as possible with its conjoined body, there are bound to be differences in in how these two packages perform......

Reasons for GR --> X100 move | Jonne Naarala | Fuji Cameras | Scoop.it


My beloved Fujifilm X100 arrived to today. It was a nice moment to open the package. Great reunion. I got a fantastic Leicatime half-case for it too and they say that this case is the Bentley of the half-cases. It surely feels great and is top-quality. But more of the Leicatime case later. Now I want to share my reasons to switch from Ricoh GR to Fuji X100. I think one of the main reasons is the X100′s fantastic viewfinder. It seems I want one even if I am not using a viewfinder all the time. But I like to have options and X100 offers three options to me: an LCD, an EVF, and an OVF. It is so great feeling to rise the camera on the eye and become as a one entity with the camera. Of course holding camera using a viewfinder stabilizes the camera nicely too. Number two reason is the focal length. I felt that the GR’s 28mm lens was too wide for me many times. I couldn’t get a proper grip to that wide focal length. It may seem that 28mm and 35mm are close to each other but in reality it is not so in this wide angle area. 35mm is so much easier to me. Another asset is the full stop faster lens in the X100. F/2.0 versus F/2.8. Important thing especially in indoor shooting and gives better background blur and bokeh......
