Fuji X-T1: a hands-on review / About Photography

Fuji X-T1: a hands-on review /  About Photography | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it
Many photographers are looking to this camera, and the X-series in general, as a system that could serve as a compact, less expensive substitute for larger, more cumbersome DSLR cameras -- if not all the time, at least occasionally, as when travelling. I fall into this category. I would like to have an alternate, lighter and more compact camera system to use for spontaneous shooting, travel, or personal work where I just don't want to lug a full DSLR outfit with me. I conducted this series of tests with those requisites in mind.

Shooting Amber Tutton with the Fuji X-E1 | My Fashion Photography Scene

Shooting Amber Tutton with the Fuji X-E1 | My Fashion Photography Scene | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it

When you’ve got great models to work with, the ideas start to flow both before the day and during. Amber is one of those models where I definitely get “in the zone” and experiment to produce something that I think would benefit my portfolio. The day was a little different to the norm though as I make the transition from DSLR to a mirrorless camera setup. Here was my first model shoot with the Fuji X-E1 and it’s APS-C sensor. ... I was finding the Lumix a little noisy for some of the natural light stills work that I do in the studio. When I say noisy, I mean probably from about 800 ISO upwards and sometimes on dull days in the studio I have to work at 1000 ISO and slightly above. So my thoughts went along the lines of needing a bigger sensor of something like the X-E1, but without the bulk of my full-frame Nikon D600. And I could get the XE-1 with it’s pro 18-55mm f2.8-4 lens for the same price as the Lumix 12-35mm on it’s own. So I now considered that I have an equivalent focal length (28-85mm in full-frame terms) AND a backup mirrorless camera ….. or was the X-E1 eventually going to be my main shooting camera?

According to soundimageplus the phase detection update for Fuji XF and XC lenses (available here) made the AF on the X-E2 definitely faster... so fast that soundimageplus can't really tell if there...

Gower Street with the X100S In Hand

Gower Street with the X100S In Hand | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it

Have you ever been really excited when you first received a brand new camera? Excited like on Christmas morning? Where you can’t even hide your enthusiasm and excitement for the gifts you’re about to unwrap in a whirlwind frenzy? That’s what I felt when I first purchased the Fujifilm X100 back in 2011.

 

I became so addicted to the camera, its design, its performance, and its small size, that I replaced the X100 with its highly-updated, and redefined, X100S. After being such a loyal Nikon user, I was thinking that Fujifilm had acquired my interest, and hopefully a life long user of their X-Series lineup.

Japan with Fujifilm XE-1 | Stuart Foster


I do not have my own blog page so I don't have any real discussion content to provide nor am I a pro photographer with years of experience to share.  However, I did travel to Japan for 2 weeks in October (last month) with my Fuji XE-1 (with Fujinon 35mm, 18-55mm, 55-200mm lenses) and I came away with a number of photos that i'm pretty happy about.  I've posted a bunch of them in a Flickr set and I wanted to send you a link to them  and if you find them worthwhile to post on your X-series blog page then please feel free to do so.  I hope you enjoy them.

It’s now been a month since I bought the Fuji... | Lawrence Ripsher | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it


It’s now been a month since I bought the Fuji X-E1. In that time, I’ve taken 4 quick weekend road trips lasting 24 hours each. The destinations were Eastern Washington (Palouse), the Olympic National Park, the Oregon coast and Mt Rainier National Park. I feel v fortunate that all are within 4 hrs of driving from where I live in Seattle. Since that time, my trusty Olympus OM-D has stayed at home while I’ve familiarized myself with the Fuji and the two lens I bought (35mm + 18-55mm). The above 10 shots are my favourites so far. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a more productive time photographically speaking - especially while not being on vacation. I could write much more about the Fuji but my quick summary is that for the types of things I like to capture, I think it’s hands down the best balance between size and image quality on the market today. It’s also the most fun and sensible camera I’ve used from a controls and ergonomic perspective (save for a few film cameras). Anyway, that brings this series of weekend trips to a close - I’m now looking forward to summer! ...

X100S - Expert Mode | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it

I have been trying to interact a bit over on the very few G+ forums/groups that I follow in hopes of making them a bit more discussion oriented instead of yet another social media transmit onlyexperience. Interact meaning responding to other people’s stuff or creating a topic based on things other people are talking about. Transmit only being what seems to be mor and more the default usage mode for all these allegedly “social” options. More on that another day. Today I was discussing the usage specifics for a set of circumstances of the little Fuji X100S with someone that quite literally just acquired it partially due to a previous conversation I had with him.

About Photography: Using the Fuji X-E1 in place of my Hasselblad to photograph late autumn leaves

About Photography: Using the Fuji X-E1 in place of my Hasselblad to photograph late autumn leaves | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it

A long time ago I began a project of photographing the fallen leaves of late autumn, leaves past their prime, leaves that had already lost their brilliant color and vibrancy and were in a final state of decay. ... I treated the leaves as sculptural elements and photographed them in my studio on film with a Hasselblad 500CM. I have repeated this project every year since, changing the style of photography each year while trying to remain faithful to the original theme. This year I went back to my roots, however instead of using the Hasselblad, I relied on a Fuji X-E1 which I put into its square format in homage to the Hasselblad.

Fuji XE1 also does Timelapse - and it is rather good at it.

Lat week there was a huge storm in southern Sweden. Being quite high up in Malmös (and Scandinavia’s) highest building, I though it was a good opportunity to try out some timelapse with my XE1.

Fujifilm X-E2 : First Impressions

I’ve had the X-E2 for about two days now (as of this writing) – Fujifilm Middle East gave me a pre-production unit and asked me if I want to try it out and see how it performs; Well, being a photographer, there’s nothing better than trying out new gear

First Impressions of the Fujifilm X-E2 | Bert Stephani | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it


.... I didn’t expect the X-E2 to focus as fast as a Canon 1Dx or a Nikon D4 but I also didn’t expect it to be really useable for shooting soccer. But to my surprise it held up pretty well and I got quite a few action shots. The continuous focus is still a bit hit or miss, but it focusses so fast that I got some nice stuff in single shot focus mode. I’ve seen some impressive numbers about the focus speed after the lenses will have received a firmware update, so things can only get even better in the near future. The X-E1 was a talented and beautiful teenager but being a teenager it could also be a bit moody and extreme at times. The X-E2 is the adult version: the talent is still there and more developed without the rough edges. It feels like a very natural extension of my eyes and hands and allows me to focus on my subject instead of the camera. That became clear when my lovely wife offered to be my subject for a ten minute test portrait shoot. You see, my wife isn’t the kind of person that enjoys being in front of a camera and this was actually the first time she posed for some portraits. So I really wanted this to be a good experience and have some nice results. I was actually pretty nervous knowing that if I messed it up it would take ages for her to volunteer again. The X-E2 was the perfect partner for this first shoot. We both hardly noticed the camera was there......

The BEST camera is...... | Dave Kai Piper

The BEST camera is...... | Dave Kai Piper | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it


Most people who know me will know how much affinity I have for Fuji Film. Before I loved the X-Pro, I applauded the D800, was inseparable from the Nikon D3x, and was charmed with the Pentax 645. Previous camera champions were the 5D mark 2 or maybe the D700. I love and still use my Nikon D90. (Not so much these day though I have to admit) It is quite apparent that I might be a total geek when it comes to cameras. Not quite the pixel peeping type of geek that goes on forums to debate the sharpness of sensor V’s sensor though, for me it is something a little different that makes a camera …. good….   It is not the colour rendition, it is not how fast it auto focuses, or how high the ISO goes. In-fact, I more than likely could not tell you what the mega-pixel count of the X-pro is off the top of my head. It is just not a statistic that is important to me. I could however explain how the sensor of the X-pro is different to a Bayer Sensor, or how that differs over a Foveon Sigma Sensor. I could wax lyrical on why I still love CCD sensors like the one found in the Pentax 645. But to be honest, this is all not related to why I like a camera or not. I could not tell you the frame rate of all of the cameras I have mentioned and I could not tell you which is ‘best’. I could not tell you the file sizes or recite the detail spec of the camera like a Star Trek geek could give you chapter and verse of each episode. My love stems from how the camera feels, how it balances, how it empowers me, how it challenges me and ultimately how it helps me do what I want to do. I want a camera that does just what I want and nothing more. I don’t NEED Art Filters, or auto-face detection, anti-blink, perfect shot tech messing about with MY photograph. If I was to make a camera I would not even have the option to shoot to JPEG… It would be DNG and that would be the end of that. I would have 3 dials. Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO and a slot for a battery and a shutter button. What more do you really need ?? Everything else it to make you feel better and something to play with while your not concentrating on your photograph. Before people comment, I have a clear idea that this would not suit everyone. I hear that Nikon are making a system of finger print recognition for the cameras? And no doubt people will find a marketing reason to say why they applaud it. Not for me though....

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Lens Review | EPhotoZine

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Lens Review | EPhotoZine | Fuji Photo | Scoop.it

This lens currently retails for around £570, which seems a little steep for a telephoto zoom with a variable maximum aperture. The price has dropped slightly since launch, and may continue to do so. As there are currently no third party manufacturers producing zoom lenses for Fuji X-series cameras, Fujifilm has a monopoly on lenses for the system.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Verdict

Zoom lenses like this are a welcome addition to the Fujifilm X-series line-up, providing greater flexibility and convenience than the prime lenses released with the X-Pro1 provide. The performance of this lens is by no means poor, but for the asking price of nearly £600, you'd be forgiven for expecting a little more. Still this lens is more than capable of producing decent quality images and the image stabilisation system works extremely well.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Pros
- Excellent performance at 55mm
- Low distortion
- Good build quality
- Very effective optical stabilisation
- Fast linear focusing motor

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Cons
- Drop off in sharpness as lens is zoomed towards telephoto
- May be a little pricey when compared to equivalent lenses for other systems

FEATURES            4/5           
HANDLING            4.5/5
PERFORMANCE           3.5/5
VALUE FOR MONEY        3.5/5
OVERALL                4/5
