FUJIFILM X-Pro1 versus X-E1 | Antonino Zambito

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 versus X-E1 | Antonino Zambito | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

X-Pro1 oder doch lieber die X-E1. Fujifilm macht es einem auf den ersten Blick nicht gerade einfach eine Entscheidung zu treffen. Zu ähnlich scheinen beide Kameras. Beide Modelle haben den selben Bildprozessor und 16.3 Millionen Pixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor. Beide haben eine Serienbildfolge von sechs Bilder in der Sekunde und zeichnen Full HD Videos mit 24 fps auf. Beide haben ein Metallgehäuse und verwenden das selbe Bajonett für Objektive. Ebenso werden beide aus dem selben Material gefertigt und wie gewohnt auch hochwertig verarbeitet. Damit enden aber auch die Gemeinsamkeiten. Während die X-Pro1 einen Multi-Hybridsucher hat der es ermöglicht zwischen einem optischen und einem elektronischen LCD Sucher mit 1.44 Millionen Bildpunkten hin und her zu schalten, wurde die X-E1 mit einem neuen 2,36 Millionen Pixel OLED Sucher ausgestattet. Dadurch dass das optische Suchersystem fehlt, ist die X-E1 kleiner und schmäler als die X-Pro1. Das macht sich auch auf dem rückseitigen Display der X-E1 mit seinen 2,8″ und 460K gegenüber der X-Pro1 mit 3″ und 1230K bemerkbar.....

Fujifilm X-T1 Review: The X Series Taken to The Next Level | Patrick Leong

Fujifilm X-T1 Review: The X Series Taken to The Next Level | Patrick Leong | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
Fuji X-T1 Verdict:

I’ve been using the X Series line since the X100 days, and thinking back, it’s quite amazing how far Fuji has taken the system in such a short time.  Not only are there myriad bodies to choose from, there are some seriously high quality optics to accompany the system along with various other third party lenses thanks to the abundance of adapters. The Fuji X-T1 is definitely a departure from the design of previous X Mount cameras in that it has taken the form of a mini retro DSLR over the rangefinder-styled form of past Fuji cameras, and I have to admit, the rangefinder guy in me kind of misses that design aspect. Nevertheless, I think it’s this uniqueness in the X Series lineup that helps maintain the magic that makes the X Series special.  Let’s be honest, Fuji has been coming out with a lot of different models, and if you ask me, I don’t know if they necessarily need to update so fast all of the time.  But the X-T1 is different than some of the other models that were simply designed to refresh an existing model.  It not only looks different, it feels different, which to me, feels like it is something special.  It’s the excitement and feeling I got when I first bought my X100, X-Pro1, and X-E1.........

Lightroom 5.4 and Lightroom Mobile Released | Thomas Fitzgerald

Lightroom 5.4 and Lightroom Mobile Released | Thomas Fitzgerald | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


While I was wrong that there would be a major upgrade to Lightroom this week, I was right in my suspicions that something was coming. It turns out that not only did Adobe release an upgrade to the desktop version, but they also released “Lightroom Mobile”, an iPad based companion app that uses smart previews and Adobe’s cloud services to sync selected collections and perform ratings and edits on your iPad which sync back to your main Library. This was demoed a while ago, and it’s good to see it released. It’s first thing in the morning here in Ireland, so I’m still gathering all the news about this, (and downloading it as we speak!). I’ll be trying it myself later today, but for now, here’s a selection of some of the coverage of this:

Lightroom Mobile is now available on the App Store. You need Lightroom 5.4 to power the synchronisation. It’s not available in the “check for updates” link inside Lightroom yet, but you can download it manually from Adobe. This release also adds support for the Fuji XT–1 and the Fuji colour profiles that were in the Camera Raw beta.....

Fujifilm X-E2 Australian Review: Photography, Back To Basics | Campbell Simpson

Fujifilm X-E2 Australian Review: Photography, Back To Basics | Campbell Simpson | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

There was a time back in the mid-1970s — around about the era of the Canon AE-1 — when photography was simple. Automatic exposure made taking good pictures easier than ever before, and cameras were getting cheaper by the day without sacrificing design or build quality. Some time in the new millenium, with the birth of mirrorless, things got complicated, and cheap cameras felt cheap. The Fujifilm X-E2 is a breath of fresh air — it’s easy to use, and built very sturdily, but doesn’t skimp on cutting-edge features. The Fujifilm X-E2 was preceded by the X-E1, which laid the groundwork in terms of a compact mirrorless camera with Fujifilm’s X lens mount, its novel X-Trans APS-C camera sensor, and offset electronic viewfinder. The X-E2 takes all of the learnings of the X-E1 and improves on them, adding new features, refining existing ones, and generally smoothing out any bumps in the road that the initial iteration may have uncovered. As electronic-viewfinder, interchangeable-lens (EVIL, natch) cameras go, the X-E2 doesn’t break any rules. Take the lens off, cover the branding, and Fujifilm’s mid-range snapper could equally well be a Panasonic LUMIX or a Sony Alpha. With dimensions of 129 x 75 x 37mm and tipping the scales at just over 350g including its 350-shot-rated rechargeable battery, the X-E2 isn’t tiny, but at the same time it’s a hell of a lot smaller than any digital SLR or DSLR-style camera......

Cinematic/Film Noir at Clifton Hill House | Richard Hurst

Cinematic/Film Noir at Clifton Hill House | Richard Hurst | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Saturday 5th April was a great day to test my new Fujinon 56mm f1.2 lens paired with my X-T1. The day, a shoot at Clifton Hill House in Bristol organised by the wonderful Sue Fyfe-Williams would cover the golden years of cinematic film history with 4 models, Make-up artists, hair stylists and dress/set stylists. There was 4 themes – Cabaret, 1930′s Film Noir, 1940′s Film Noir and Barbarella. Lighting and instruction throughout the day was provided by Damien Lovegrove and his assistant. Myself and 7 other photographers were put into pairs and we rotated each set throughout the day guiding the wonderful models on what we were looking to achieve. We had free rein to adjust the lighting to suit our requirements which was a great learning curve. Damien was always on hand for advice if we were struggling to get the look we were after. Big thank you goes out to all involved and I’m looking forward to the next event. Kit used: Fuji X-T1, 23mm, 35mm and 56mm Lenses.....

Fujifilm X-T1 – Sport assignment | Joe Ng | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

It's been a few months now since I made the choice to go full Fuji when photographing weddings, the choice was one I was thinking about ever since getting my hands on the XE1 and the 35mm lens, after having this along side a Canon 5Dii I was thinking how I would be happy doing a whole wedding using only this lens and camera. Since then I've invested in a full bag of fuji gear which I'm using at every wedding now, its light, small and gives incredible image quality, it also helps me remain inconspicuous when shooting, as I'm a documentary photographer I don't want to be waving massive lenses about attracting loads of attention.....

REVIEW: Fujinon XF 18mm f2R - The best all round X Series lens? | Jeff Carter

REVIEW: Fujinon XF 18mm f2R - The best all round X Series lens? | Jeff Carter | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

The Fujinon XF 18mm f2R is one of the three original lenses launched with the X-Pro1 in 2012 and was the widest of the trio - 18mm f2, 35mm f1.4 and 60mm f2.4 macro.  Since then there have been a few wide angles lenses added to the X-Series armoury - 14mm f2.8, 10-24mm f4, 23mm f1.4 and Zeiss Touit 12mm f2.8 to name a few - and I feel the little 18mm has become the most underrated gems in the Fujifilm XF lens lineup......

The Fujinon XF18mm f2R is a superb lens and my favourite of the five lenses I own for the X-Series system. Why it gets overlooked in favour of the wider or faster lenses that are available is frankly a shame. I was of the same opinion when I got my X-Pro1 system and thought the 14mm f2.8 would be mu wide angle lens of choice but the reality when I started to use the system in the real world was not as I expected....

Boudoir Photography: Sexual Objectification or Confidence Builder? | Carlo Nicora

Boudoir Photography: Sexual Objectification or Confidence Builder? | Carlo Nicora | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

More and more we hear about sexual objectification and its influence on society. We hear how a male-dominated society imposes object-like female bodies in the media, creating sexual objectification. It is normal that we start thinking about Boudoir Photography in the bigger picture, especially considering how much sexual objectification in media is damaging women. Is boudoir photography promoting self confidence, or is it another sexual objectification of the female body.

PS: it felt correct to push the boundaries with a set of images that can provoke a reaction. Let your thoughts be heard!

What if Fujifilm were to go full frame? | Mirrorlessons

What if Fujifilm were to go full frame? | Mirrorlessons | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

.... of course many users are questioning what would become of the APS-C line since Fuji has invested a lot of money into it up until now. Well, as several photographers have pointed out, there are many systems that have both APS-C and full frame line-ups, so it wouldn’t really be anything new. Would it make sense? Well, it depends on the point of view from which you analyse the move. The current Fuji X line is certainly a great example of high quality found in compact and light gear. Not as much as the MFT system but wherever the MFT system has some advantages, Fuji has others. The most recent products to come out and the current lens road map clearly show that Fujifilm is building a complete APS-C system that can easily satisfy most of our needs as photographers (both amateur and professional). So why start over with a new system? Isn’t APS-C the best compromise in terms of keeping cameras and lenses small enough without risking a loss in image quality? Isn’t it also the best way to keep costs reasonable .......

Fujinon XF 14mm 2.8R | K-pture | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Après la prise en main de l’exquis Fujinon 23mm 1.4 R (équiv. 35mm), voici venue celle du Fujinon XF 14mm 2.8 R (équiv. 21mm). Au départ, je ne voyais pas l’intérêt d’avoir deux « grands angles », puis mon ami Cédric s’en est mêlé… Les deux objectifs sont très différents. Le 23mm est très polyvalent mais n’est pas un vrai grand angle et il peut s’avérer un peu juste dans certaines situations. Le 14mm, lui, en est un. Large, très LARGE (mais pas trop). En ouvrant la boîte, je m’attendais à du gros et lourd caillou. Seulement 234g sur la balance contre 300g pour le 23mm (l’ouverture f/1.4 du 23mm joue aussi sur la taille et le poids du joujou).......

Kaza Fuji X100S Case review | Bryan Maniotakis

Kaza Fuji X100S Case review | Bryan Maniotakis | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I’ve owned my X100S for a couple months now, and decided to get a case for some upcoming traveling. I wanted something well made that would suit the aesthetics of the camera, so I decided on the Kaza case. These cases are all hand made, so it was about a month from when I ordered it to when it arrived at my door. I opted for the vintage brown color because I think it’ll age well, and it’s a nice contrast against the black body of the camera. Included in the package are a neck strap, half case, full enclosure, and a clip to hold the full case together. The leather quality on the strap feels great, and here you can see an embossed Kaza logo on the back of it.

60mm ƒ/2.4 vs. 56mm ƒ/1.2 | Fuji vs. Fuji

60mm ƒ/2.4 vs. 56mm ƒ/1.2 | Fuji vs. Fuji | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

While these lenses are fairly close in focal length, they are clearly built for different purposes. I’ve been waiting for a portrait lens for almost a year now, ever since I sold my Nikon 85mm ƒ/1.4 AF-D. The FUJINON XF 56mm ƒ/1.2 fills that void admirably aside from the true focal length difference, and is actually usable out to the edges of the frame unlike the Nikon. Finally I can get back to portrait work. The FUJINON XF 60mm ƒ/2.4 Macro seems built for carefully considered images and precise focusing. It was always sort of a stop gap for Fujifilm shooters wanting a flattering portrait lens, and it still is the prime to beat for most flattering focal length in my view. It’s a very good lens and does what it does well, but it’s not a dedicated portrait lens, nor was it ever intended to be. I always figured I’d borrow a 60mm ƒ/2.4 for this comparison, but with the support of my awesome readers, I was able to afford to buy one, and I’m happy to have it. Not only so I can continue testing and adding to articles like these, but macro work is something I haven’t had a chance to do much of and the 60mm ƒ/2.4 is a great starting point. I can also see myself packing it instead of the 56mm ƒ/1.2 for landscape shooting since it’s so much lighter and very sharp edge to edge. 39mm filters aren’t exactly expensive either.......

Fujifilm X-Pro1 - Wedding Photography | Sergio Sorrentino | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Is the Fuji X-Pro1 a camera suitable for wedding photojournalism photography?

I don’t like talking about equipment. As you surely know, in good photography the camera itself has really low importance. However I would like to talk about a camera who have brought to me (again and more) the joy to take images. Put it together an excellent lens lineup and you have the Fujifilm X Series. Briefly, I found this camera to be a joy of use thanks to the light weight, the silent and smooth operation and the ability to completely make me invisible, and this is a very important aspect for wedding photojournalism. The AF operation is good enough for capturing everything happens in a wedding day, from running kids to the first dance with low light. The only disappoint is the slow buffer operation that makes this camera not so good for those photographers who like “spray and pray”. This flaw was finally an advantage for me, I improved my way of shooting, letting me concentrate more to achieve the best image for that moment.....

FujiFilm 14mm f2.8

When I finally got this lens, I had my doubts that it might not be wide enough for landscapes.  I like to shoot landscapes at least at 17mm on full frame camera. and this 14mm translates to roughly 21mm, when factoring the crop of Fuji X cameras.  I decided to give it a try.  I was really impressed with the results.  I think 21mm is wide enough for me, although I’m still looking forward to the new 10-24 f4 Fuji lens.  Best of all, all this equipment is light, easily transportable, which makes shooting with it so much more fun. It was a perfect day.  The morning was beautiful and we found a few photographers already positioned at Vermillion lakes waiting for the sunrise.  The weather conditions were quite perfect for a great sunrise shoot.  After the sunrise, we traveled to Lake Louise.  Another great iconic location for landscapes.   A day of beautiful light, beautiful mountains, and great time shooting it all......

Caravaners | Sven Schroeter | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Lust for the open road has driven hard miles on the clock of this thunderous Nissan Gloria. Appropriately camouflaged by a wax finished, seaside tan, this sleek automobile is fueled by a straight four and has been pulling its weight in gold for decades.  Gloria has been delivering Little Miss Charlotte Cake and her burly protector from coast to coast throughout Aotearoa, provoking road rage in every convoy it lead. The travellers and sweet hearts from another era gave their 4x2 roller home its name after a pot hole incident back in 69 and Lilliput (short for little pot hole) has stuck ever since! Despite the modest accommodation and missing amenities, the living quarters are still respectably cosier than your typical Dunedin student flat. But do not let the exterior fool you, a fully stocked kitchen with all the essentials allows Miss Charlotte Cake to remain true to her heritage and master the housewife craft! After all, who else can whisk up a tray of triple chocolate chip muffins before bouncing through the next town......

Le mot de la fin

Je me demandais si ce Fujinon XF 56mm 1.2 parviendrait à remplacer et prendre le dessus sur le Nikkor 85mm 1.4G que j’aimais tant. La réponse est oui. Le 56mm est le parfait exemple du savoir-faire de Fujifilm en terme d’optiques. Petit, discret, relativement léger, performant et rapide. Le bokeh est magnifique même s’il reste en peu en dessous de celui du 85mm Nikkor. Un must have.

Kiawah Island, Fuji XE2, and the iRay | Tony Sweet

Kiawah Island, Fuji XE2, and the iRay | Tony Sweet | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

In between our Charleston workshops, we were invited to present a day long event for the Kiawah Island Photography Club. Driving onto the island, and actually on the way down the peninsula, I was pretty blown away by all of the infrared photo ops. And, of course, I’d left my converted D300 back in the room, only bringing my Fuji X system. I’ve only photographed a little with the X system cameras with the iRay (Singh Ray). I have a pretty predictable exposure system in place for my D800 and D3X, but have only begun to experiment using the iRay with mirror less…..and really don’t like experimenting when time is of the essence. But, as the Stones say, “You can’t always get what you want.” Aside from having a great time with the club, during the presentation and in the field, I had literally only a few minutes to photograph on my own. Now, please know that Kiawah is a gated community, not open to the public, but upon driving down the various peninsulas throughout the area, including Edisto Island will yield similar spectacular IR ops......
