Can anyone tell me what the latest firmware version is for the Fuji 18-55? I have the 1.1 but thought I saw reference to a 2.0 version somewhere. Thanks!

Review: The Fujifilm 35mm F/2 R WR is a Must-Have - Resource Magazine

Review: The Fujifilm 35mm F/2 R WR is a Must-Have - Resource Magazine | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it
The Fujifilm 35mm F/2 R WR has grown on me ever since it entered the Resource office. Prior to using it, I was skeptical; always thinking about how it’s realistically a “50mm” lens because of the APS-C conversion factor. I love shooting at 35mm, that’s why I usually kee

I have not shot with this lens yet but my brother has and he loves the the results. I have the 1.4, and i've been very happy with the results, will need to check this one out.

The Fashion-able XPro-2

The Fashion-able XPro-2 | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it
With an XE-1 well past its prime and showing it, I pre-ordered Fujifilm’s
newest flagship, and it was in my hands on March 8. 

I had very little time to get aquatinted with the new box before heading to
Italy to work on a few photography projects. During the trip, the XPro-2
and I became inseparable friends. (More on Italy in a later post!) The
camera is quick and responsive, relatively intuitive to use, and the
low-light performance is great. It initially felt much larger and heaver
than the XE-1, but use eliminated that felling of difference. 

Back stateside, it was straight to work shooting street fashion with
Nicole Boychuck for Aoki Boutique. Shooting outside on another‘s schedule
means working with the weather of the day. And the day we had brought super
bright, super contrasty sunshine. I like contrast that I can control, but
cloudless, sunny afternoons are always a challenge.

At least, it used to be.

Singin’ in the Range

There are many praises to sing about the X-Pro2 (and quite a few niggles),
but one of the most important improvements is in dynamic range. It is,
simply, remarkable. Even in bright sun that hurt the eyes, the new Fuji
sensor captured a range of usable detail in both the highlights and the
shadows. I was able to get excellent images in light that would have
destroyed the X-Trans CMOS in the XE-1. (These images are all developed
from RAW—which is the only way to maximize the camera’s files.)

The improved dynamic range isn’t just handy for recovering shadow and
highlight detail. Instead, at least for me, it’s an invitation to find the
limits. Because I know the camera is going to handle a wide gamut of light,
I’m free to seek out even contrastier scenes that I previously would have
avoided. This provides the opportunity to engage in new creative
approaches, and not simply to improve on what I already do.

Bokeh by the Dozens

Shooting street fashion is always a challenge because I like clothes to
have motion. Fashion isn’t static, and—for the kind of shooting I
do—showing the construction and movement of the clothes is important. This
means low shutter speeds and the lowest ISO. So long as I’m able to move
with the model, I can overcome the additional depth of field that results
from using smaller apertures. 

It’s when the model is still that I need separation from the background,
which means a wide aperture to get optical bokeh.

The problem with shooting in bright afternoon light is that the lowest ISO
and the fastest shutter won’t be enough to get a very wide aperture. There
are ways around this, like using ND filters, but I work fast and need
spontaneous moments, so those “solutions” just present new problems. I need
the answers all in the camera, and the answer has been to chase areas with
less light. 

At least, it used to be!

The X-Pro2 has a mechanical shutter that goes to 1/8000, and an electronic
shutter that reaches all the way down to 1/32000 of a second. I have mine
set to M+E so that the camera automatically uses the electronic shutter if
needed, but otherwise sticks to the mechanical. Compared to the X-E1’s
fastest speed of 1/4000, that‘s three more stops of light reducing power at
my disposal. And that translates to getting wide-aperture bokeh even in
bright light. 

The most fashion-able of them all

I doubt Fuji set out to make a great camera for street fashion. But with
its expanded dynamic range and high shutter speeds, the X-Pro2 is currently
the most fashion-able camera of them all.
