X-Pro1 Using Custom Settings | For RAW Shooters and Film Fanatics | Adam J Piper

Custom settings can be an extension of the film simulations, adding another layer to your jpgs, or they can be set up to give you the best preview of your RAW files, enabling you to make better exposure decisions. I show you how to set them up, use them effectively and some of my favourite settings for your Fuji X cameras....

Review | 20 Countries with Fujifilm X-Series Cameras | Elia Locardi

Review | 20 Countries with Fujifilm X-Series Cameras | Elia Locardi | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

Since May of 2013, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Fujifilm X-Series Cameras and XF lenses, and during that time I’ve managed to shoot with them in more than 20 different countries, spanning nearly every possible photography condition. In the process, I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting many Fujifilm shooters from around the world and what I’ve discovered is that people love their Fujifilm cameras and, like me, they’re excited to talk about them. There have been quite a few times, where I was completely immersed in a sea of tripods, riddled with shooters toting every type of camera brand known to man. People with Canons, Nikons, Pentax, and Hasselblads, all sizing each other’s gear up—in typical photographer fashion—while never exchanging a word. Fujifilm shooters on the other hand, just seem to smile at each other, as if they have a shared secret that no one else knows. It’s the strangest thing, but even during photo walks, Fujifilm shooters seem to congregate; proud to be carrying their cameras and excited to talk about their favorite lenses and what is to come. There’s a sense of community and shared love for these cameras that I find absolutely delightful.......

Fujifilm Reportedly Working on a Super-Fast 16mm f1.4 Wide-Angle X-Mount Lens | The Phoblographer

Fujifilm Reportedly Working on a Super-Fast 16mm f1.4 Wide-Angle X-Mount Lens | The Phoblographer | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

Besides the great X-Trans CMOS sensor, there’s another good reason to go for Fujifilm’s X-system: the lenses. Not only has Fujifilm created a respectable amount of lenses covering all focal lengths from wide-angle to telephoto in a rather short amount of time, they also created some of the best optics currently available for any mirrorless system, including the 14mm f2.8, the 23mm f1.4, the 35mm f1.4 and the recent 56mm f1.2. Soon, users of the system could be in for some more treats. According to Fuji Rumors, the company could soon introduce a super-fast 16mm f1.4 wide-angle lens for its X-system, translating to a 24mm-equivalent. Fujifilm’s lens roadmap indicates that in 2014 a “high speed wide angle lens” would be introduced, and this could just be it. In addition to the 16mm f1.4, Fuju Rumors’ sources also claim that the X-system might see the addition of a 140-400mm super telephoto lens, for those who need that extra bit of reach. On the system’s APS-C sized sensors, this lens would translate to a 210-600mm, which should be sufficient for both sports and wildlife photography. Thanks to built-in optical image stabilization, it should be possible to achieve shake-free images with the lens even at its longest setting.......

Here are 80 of my pictures shot using the Fuji X-T1 in jpeg mode. I shot RAWs too but don’t have a means of processing them yet. I switched the camera to monochrome and did any final tweaks in Lightroom. Jpegs have very little latitude for adjustment so I’ve pretty much left them as shot. Enjoy!

Havana Cuba with the Fuji X100s | Kevin Lloyd

Havana Cuba with the Fuji X100s | Kevin Lloyd | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it


Hola! Here I am again with another blog posting about my travels to a place I would call a street photography Mecca, Havana Cuba! This trip consisted of 10 days solo travel within Cuba comprising 2 in Varadero, 4 in Havana, 2 in Vinales, and finally 2 more in Havana. The birth of this trip came from the desire to do a Photography workshop in Cuba back in 2011. I signed up for a guide-led workshop which subsequently fell through due to too many attendants pulling out. A year later I was still wishing I could go, but timing and funds were making things difficult, so I decided to save money, and do it to fit my own schedule. At the beginning of 2013 I booked a return flight to Varadero for the 12th of April. Ten days alone in Cuba… I went 8 days without internet access of any kind. 10 days without talking to anyone I’d met before the 12th of April, but meeting new friends every day. 10 days of experiencing new culture, getting to grips with Spanish, and shooting pictures as much as I wanted. Yup this was a wonderful trip and a refreshing change! Whilst I feel the pictures I took could have been better with a knowledgeable guide, the experience gained was way better for going along. Cuba seemed very safe to me, and I look forward to going back again for more images and experience. Cuba is the biggest island in the Caribbean by quite a margin, and there’s lots more to see yet…

Controlling a Fuji X-T1 with the Fujifilm Camera Remote WIFi APP | Tom Grill

Controlling a Fuji X-T1 with the Fujifilm Camera Remote WIFi APP | Tom Grill | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

We wanted to do a straight down lifestyle photo of a group of friends eating together at a table. This called for the camera to be located directly overhead and centered on the table, which meant there was no way for me to operate it directly or to even look in the viewfinder or LCD. I didn't want to do an elaborate setup because we had many other scenes to do that day and I didn't want to waste any time. I immediately chose the Fuji X-T1 because its light weight made it very easy to suspend over the table with a simple pole cat setup. Additionally, the Fujifilm Camera Remote APP for wireless control of the camera is one of the best I have seen. I have it on my cell phone and on my tablet, and use it for situations just like this......

Fujifilm Gets It and Sony Doesn't | The Online Photographer | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

All things considered, is there a more desirable lens line on the planet right now than Fuji XF? In fact, mid-2014 also seems to be smack-dab in the middle of Fujifilm's moment. It's just on one great big roll right now. Everything coming up sevens. In just a few years, Fuji has created a coherent, consistent line of all-new lenses that essentially have it all when you consider all the factors that impinge on desirability—size, weight, performance, handling, specs, and consumer cost. Expensive but attainable, fast but not too big, sensational image quality—nothing clearly beats it for general non-specialist photography even now, and users have faith that the vaporware on the lens roadmap will show up when Fuji says it will. The company's track record has been excellent. All that is priceless.......

The X-T1 is ready | Fuji vs. Fuji | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

There were a couple of issues that plagued the release of the X-T1. The first that most already know about, was the light leak. The second, slightly less well know is this, the directional pad of buttons (or D-pad) used for menu selection was mushy, somewhat unresponsive, and quite unsatisfying to use. I want to state early in this post that for any of you who have been reading my thoughts and comparisons of the X-T1, and are concerned about the crummy buttons, you can now safely buy a new X-T1 that has a much better D-pad than those found on the pre-production units, and the the initial run of manufacturing.1 If you’re buying from a store, you can easily tell if you’ve got a good one through the plastic baggy that the camera ships in, so if the dealer is reluctant to crack the Fujifilm sticker-seal, it’s no problem. Just test the buttons through the bag. If the buttons click like this, you’re good. As we know the light leak issue has also been addressed, and clicky buttons also seem to indicate light tightness......

Fuji X-Pro-1 back button focus | Paul Samoluk

Fuji X-Pro-1 back button focus |  Paul Samoluk | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it


What is back button focus and why should you care?

I switched to using the back button (AE-L AF-L) to focus my camera a few months ago and can honestly say i could never go back to the traditional way of auto focusing using your shutter button. It will take a little getting used to at first, but if you stick with it, i can promise you will feel the same way i do. So what is it exactly? In the traditional way of auto focusing your camera, you would half press the shutter, which engages the auto focus system, get the camera to lock focus, and then take the picture by pressing the shutter button all the way down. Ok i am not undermining your intelligence by stating the obvious here, but i wanted to set a baseline for our discussion. With back button focus, you essentially disassociate the function of auto focusing your camera from the function of taking the actual image. You use two buttons instead of one which on the surface may seem quite odd and less efficient but works wonders once you get used to it. Things look even peachier (yes i said peachier) with the X-Pro-1 because the genius minds over at Fuji, know their ergonomics, and placed the buttons in a fantastic place. We will get to that in a minute, first lets continue exploring the idea of back button focus. Here is why you should care about this, and possibly give it a try....
