Conclusion

The Fuji X-T1 has been adopted by many professional photographers and they seem keen on keeping even the most demanding pro’s happy. Fuji was already renowned for their nice range of lenses, and anyone who has switched to another brand will tell you that’s the main thing they miss. It’s astonishing that they actually keep improving on the XF lens range designs and this is clearly noticeable in terms of features and performance. Now let’s get the elephant out of the room : there is no optical image stabilisation incorporated in this lens. Yes this will hurt sales, and I would have preferred it to be included in the XF1655, just because it would have made it even easier to use. I’m spoiled with the general performance of the XF 50-140 tele-zoom, where I rarely have a missed shot thanks to that OIS image stabilisation. You do need to take more care when focussing with the Fujinon XF 16-55 if you don’t want to have too many missed shots. Incorporating an image stabilisation system would probably have increased size, weight and price, but that would not have been a real issue for me personally. OK, this zoom is already quite large, and perhaps at the limits of what you’d expect from a mirror-less system, but it is still very compact compared to DSLR lenses.......

Nicolas Demory's insight:

Luminous Landscape interviewed Billy & Greg (the Fuji Guys) and Fuji Manager Toshihisa Iida at photokina. It’s a nice chat you should check out, with Greg confirming that the Fujifilm X-PRO2 won’t be Full Frame, but “worth the wait“.

A Room with a Different View | Replichrome Film Emulation | Patrick La Roque | Fuji World | Scoop.it


In the small world of film emulation there’s an 800 pound gorilla standing in the corner: VSCO. I’ve never been shy about my use of VSCO Film on this blog and most of you probably know I’ve had an ongoing relationship with these guys for the past year or so, getting a chance at times to test some of their upcoming products. Here’s the thing: I really like what they do and I happen to think they do it extremely well. A success borne of quality IMHO. They’re also involved with the photographic community in ways that go beyond purely mercantile considerations which is all to their honor. When I received an email about the new Replichrome film emulation product from the folks at Totally Rad, I admit my initial reaction was… Meh. Yet-another-film-emulation-preset-package taking on VSCO. The fact that their PR email was rather aggressive in directly attacking them didn’t exactly make me feel warm and fuzzy either: I prefer products to focus on their own strengths and individuality. But then this probably highlights how entrenched VSCO has become in this sector. Still, given the complimentary download they’d sent me I felt it was only fair to try it out. So I did....

The Fuji X-E2: is it worth to upgrade? | Mike Kobal

The Fuji X-E2: is it worth to upgrade? | Mike Kobal | Fuji World | Scoop.it

 

.... only one and thankfully this is something Fuji can fix with a future firmware update: I miss the view mode button, however, not as terrible as anticipated because of the quick response time in eye sensor mode. Still annoying to be forced to go deep into the menu to change between EVF and LCD. Jesus. What were they thinking…..

 

This might finally be the camera I have been waiting for, fast, small, lightweight, unobtrusive. Personally, I think the X-E2 is one of the best examples of the form follows function principle. I am seriously considering giving up high speed sync and the inaudible shutter in favor of interchangeable lenses. And it is black. Hmmmm. Only time will tell, for now I am planning to keep mine  Check back by the end of the week for an update with images! .....

Fuji Xt1 six months on | Nick Lukey

Fuji Xt1 six months on | Nick Lukey | Fuji World | Scoop.it

Six months into using the Fuji Xt1, I thought I would update my initital review. Over the years I have used nearly every Nikon model from film through to digital, my last Nikon was the D3, a truly superb bit of engineering, and a very well thought out camera. After 4 years of ownership I was becoming tired of it, not only down to the weight of the beast and attached glass, but because I felt the camera was owning me and not the other way around. I felt my photography was being done by the camera, with very little input from me. I wanted to be inspired again, remove myself somewhat from the electronics. Hard to believe this camera appeared in the Uk late 2007. So my journey of re discovering my photography came through the purchase of the Fuji x100, yes that bloody quirky camera !, that little camera delivered superb images, set me on the Fuji path. Given my photographic needs I followed up that purchase with the Fuji X pro 1, and started to aquire some lenses. The 55-200, and the 14mm, along with some legacy glass from Olympus zuiko. Still I felt for some professional assignments where speed was required the Fuji's were a little lacking. Though image quality had never been an issue. So when the Xt1 was announced I jumped for joy, no more carrying the D3 around for that moment when a little action occurred. I can now honestly shoot a portrait session or wedding day without worry....
