EVF for the win!

EVF for the win! | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
ow I’ve used the Fuji EVFs for a few years, and specifically the X-T1 EVF since February, I can’t see me ever going back to an OVF only camera.

Never ever thought I’d say that – in fact, the idea of loosing my OVF nearly stopped me from going Fuji mirror less – I hedged my bets with the X100, and then X-Pro1 – keeping an OVF lifeline open, just in case…

Here we are a few years down the track, and I NEVER use the OVFs on the Fuji’s.

So why the change of heart?

ANNETTE MOSSBACHER - Shooting Greenland with the XT-1

ANNETTE MOSSBACHER - Shooting Greenland with the XT-1 | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
On a recent photographic trip to Greenland. FujiFilm Switzerland loaned me the FujiFilm XT-1 and 3 lenses; XF 16-55mm/2.8; XF 50-140mm/2.8; XF 10-24mm/4.0.

I was keen to test FujiFilm's camera and lenses in the harsh Arctic conditions.

A friend and fellow photographer Peter Delaney is a recent convert to FujiFilms mirrorless platform and has been informing me of his positive experiences .

The Fujifilm GFX 50S Review – Portable Beast

The Fujifilm GFX 50S Review – Portable Beast | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
There had been speculations for many months. Heck, even years prior to the reveal back at Photokina in 2016, there had been ramblings about a mirrorless medium format system from Fujifilm. Hasselblad took the early bird and introduced their iteration of a mirrorless medium format during summer of 2016. During the past 5 months I have gained some knowledge from various key figures in the development of the GFX 50s about why it is a different beast from the Hasselblad X1D.

Back to the Future – from the X100F to X100

Back to the Future – from the X100F to X100 | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
In recent posts we shared our thoughts and imagery shot exclusively with the brand new X100F. There is no question that the X100F is a major update to the last iteration, the X100T. In fact, we like the X100F so much we ordered the camera for ourselves.

When working on our review of the X100F (you can read it here) we had a chance to shoot all previous generations of this camera. It was just at that point, when I was holding the original X100 in my hands, that I got sentimental. Looking back I realized that  the original X100 was a truly revolutionary product for so many reasons.

Home to my roots with the Fuji X System

Home to my roots with the Fuji X System | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
Since these early film days I would dread to think how many cameras I have owned, including the big Nikon and Canon bodies and more recently some OMD models but strangely, I now feel I have come home to my roots with the Fuji X system. For me the range of cameras that Fuji offer are the perfect blend of analogue and digital that deliver beautiful colours and amazing detail in a unique way. I did have a brief encounter with the X100 when it first came out in 2010 and I think this may have paved the way to where I am now. Some might say the camera is just a tool but I think for me it is something a little bit more personal.

A Highland Photo Trip: Part 4 Bealach na Ba to Applecross

A Highland Photo Trip: Part 4 Bealach na Ba to Applecross | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
Bealach na Ba is Gaelic for Pass of the Cattle and is a road that is reminiscent of Alpine roads with tight and twisty bends as the single track road twists it was from sea level to 626 metres (2054ft).

We had packed away our camera gear into the car at the bottom of the pass and as we headed up the weather had taken a turn for the worse, with rain swiftly turning to flurries of snow as we headed up.  This made the climb seem even more dramatic as the dark layer of cloud was lit from underneath by the sunlight down on Loch Kishorn.

My X journey with Fujifilm

My X journey with Fujifilm | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
My first Fujifilm camera was Fuji X100s bought 3 years ago. Thanks to the fact that the camera was light, I always had it with me. As a result of a small and unobtrusive construction I could take pictures unnoticed. I was closer to the photographed events which resulted in better photographs. I felt also, that the manual, old-fashioned controls enhanced my user experience.

Review: Fujifilm X-T2 - Admiring Light

Review: Fujifilm X-T2 - Admiring Light | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
Fujifilm, after having been stuck with more or less the same sensor for around 4 years, has been updating their rather robust lineup with the new 24 Megapixel X-Trans III sensor.  First up was last winter’s long-awaited X-Pro2, and then this past summer, Fuji moved to update their extremely popular X-T1 with the new X-T2. It’s been out a little while, but I finally got a chance to run the X-T2 through its paces, and I have to say: Fuji’s got a winner on their hands yet again. Let’s dive in to the details.

Fujifilm's Prime Lens Trinities: Which Is Right For You?

Fujifilm's Prime Lens Trinities: Which Is Right For You? | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
Fujifilm shooters find themselves in an interesting dilemma of late with there now being two clear prime trinity setups that one could choose from. On one hand you have the newer, weather sealed, and smaller F2 variants in 23mm, 35mm, and 50mm. On the other hand, you have the F1.4 23mm and 35mm, and the F/1.2 56mm.

Each trinity has its pros and cons, and each has uses that work better for some niches of photography than others. So today we wanted to look at Fujifilm’s two prime trinities and sort of break them down to share which you should be considering based on what you shoot and what you are looking for from your prime lenses.

REVIEW: In a Tight Spot? Samyang 8mm to the Rescue!

REVIEW: In a Tight Spot?  Samyang 8mm to the Rescue! | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
About eight months ago I decided to buy the diminutive Samyang 8mm f2.8 fisheye for the annual trip to Le Mans. This lens is small and light and has a field of view of 180 degrees. It is a manual focus lens but focusing only starts at one metre so I tend to leave the focus ring on infinity, stop down to f5.6 or f8 and not worry about it.

This little lens allows me to get pictures from some very tight places or take an extreme wide view that you can't normally get, even with the Fujinon 10-24mm set at 10mm.

The Fuji XF 18-135mm – a Versatile Travel Lens | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
From one article comes another – One plus of being a Fuji X Photographer is that Fuji will lend you gear to try. When I did an overview of the 18-55 Kit lens, a commenter asked about the difference between it and the Fuji XT 18-135mm. I don’t own that lens, but through my Fuji connection, I was able to borrow one for a short while and give it a go. So thank you to the commenter that allowed me to find out I could borrow stuff to test!

One Fuji X-Pro 2 Image - 7 Different Raw Converters

One Fuji X-Pro 2 Image - 7 Different Raw Converters | Fuji X files | Scoop.it

I was recently working on a photo of Dublin’s famous Ha’Penny bridge that I had taken with my X-Pro 2 and an idea came to me. I was processing the image in Lightroom, and I wanted to see what it would look like in different converters. As I’ve written so much about it, and as I had an image that I was working on for a real world project, I thought that while I was at it, I should try a whole bunch of different converters and see what kind of results I got.

Fujifilm X100T review and why it is still relevant after X100F release - Benamar Photography

Fujifilm X100T review and why it is still relevant after X100F release - Benamar Photography | Fuji X files | Scoop.it
I have owned a Fujifilm X100T for a couple of years now. I haven’t written a review about it just because there are plenty of those already on the web, many of them better I would ever write. What started me with this article was the release of the new version X100F, which was said to be improved in almost every way. The X100F is technically a better camera than X100T, I don’t deny that, but let’s dig deeper.

Fujifilm X100F: The Greatest or the Latest?

Fujifilm X100F: The Greatest or the Latest? | Fuji X files | Scoop.it

When the first Fujifilm X100 came out in 2010, I was excited. The camera looked the part, but could it deliver? After testing it for a week, my initial enthusiasm was slightly dampened, considering my primary camera at the time was an amazingly fast, powerful and refined DSLR. The X100’s AF was slow and inaccurate, the hybrid viewfinder was still immature in execution, and the manual focus was difficult. I knew it was a first generation product and I accepted the technological and performance limitations; but I wasn’t ready to be an early adopter. It had the form, but lacked functional refinement. I was content with my DSLR.A couple of years later I was ready to upgrade my digital point and shoot, and I auditioned then the new Fujifilm X100S against the Ricoh GR. I must admit the decision was very difficult, but I went with the sharper lens and compact size of the Ricoh, versus the better colours and focusing features (both AF and MF) of the X100S. Finally in 2014, the mighty X100T was released. Form finally met function and performance. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a mature 3rd generation product and quickly became my favourite Fujifilm X Series camera. I had GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) and I wasn’t alone. It soon became a cult classic and I knew there would be very high expectations on the next iteration of this venerable X100 series. The replacement has finally arrived, the all new X100F. It’s the latest, but is it the greatest? Let’s find out.
