Fujifilm X-E1 met 18-55 F/2.8-4 ervaringen | LightCatch

Fujifilm X-E1 met 18-55 F/2.8-4 ervaringen | LightCatch | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Zo zat ik al tijdje te wachten tot de Fujifilm X-E1 geleverd ging worden, krijg ik gisteren een mailtje dat ie binnen is. Hup in de auto en meteen opgehaald. Ik heb ook een tijdje de X100 mogen gebruiken wat een prachtige camera is en die heb ik met veel plezier gebruikt. Een (voor mij) groot nadeel was het ontbreken van een zoom mogelijkheid. Als je kunt lopen is dat geen punt, dan zoom je met je benen, maar dat kan ik niet meer, dus dan moet je het anders oplossen. En zie daar, Fuji heeft het ook door gehad en speciaal voor mij de X-E1 op de markt gebracht. Op de X-E1 zit je niet vast aan één objectief. Met de X-pro1 overigens ook al niet maar er waren in eerste instantie maar drie objectieven uitgebracht en alle drie met een vast brandpunt. Ook is de X-pro1 een stuk duurder. Daar is samen met komst van de X-E1 verandering in gebracht, Fuji heeft tegelijkertijd een zoomobjectief op de markt gezet met een bereik van 18-55 mm (27-82,5 mm eq. 35mm) en een behoorlijke lichtsterkte van F/2.8 bij 18 mm en oplopend tot F/4 bij 55mm. De eerste indrukken (en ik ontkom niet met regelmatig een vergelijking met de X100) zijn erg goed. De bouwkwaliteit is fraai, degelijk en toch niet te zwaar. Dat geld ook voor het zoomobjectief, alles loopt erg soepel maar ook weer niet tè. Het totaal gewicht is lager dan ik van te voren had verwacht, maar wel erg prettig. Je hebt nooit het idee een prul in je handen te hebben
Wat absoluut beter is, is de AutoFocus. Die kon bij de X100 nog wel een pittig de weg kwijt zijn. Ik wil niet zeggen dat het bij de X-E1 allemaal rozengeur en maneschijn is maar in ieder geval stukken beter. De bediening is, als je de X100 gewend bent, niet zo heel afwijkend. Waar ik wel aan moet wennen is de AE-L/AF-L knop, die gebruik ik namelijk voor snelfocussen waarbij de AF verder op manual staat. Handig want dan wordt er bij het aanpassen van de compositie niet telkens opnieuw scherpgesteld als je de ontspanknop weer eens een keer teveel half indrukt. Alleen die knop zit precies bovenop de verdikking achterop het toestel waar je de camera zo lekker stevig mee vast kunt houden (ook een verbetering t.o.v. de X100). Echter als je de AE-L/AF-L in wilt drukken verlaat je duim dus het verdikte gedeelte waardoor je grip om zeep gaat.....

Hands-on: Fujifilm X100T review: New viewfinder features make for best X100 model yet | Pocket-lint | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

If you're unfamiliar with the X100 series then get prepared to geek out. If you already know all about it then get prepared to be blown away by the Fujifilm X100T - because it's the best X100 model yet. The reason is simple: the X100T brings an updated viewfinder, complete with parallax correction in manual focus and what the company is calling an "electronic rangefinder" feature too. And it's utterly brilliant. In terms of build, the X100T is the same fine example of craftsmanship as the previous X100S and original X100 models. There's not much we can say to better our previous thoughts on that - this silver-colour, magnesium alloy construction is solid in both visual and physical terms. If, that is, you like retro styling and the old school of thought when shooting, because the X100T has manual control dials and a fixed 23mm (which is a 35mm equivalent) f/2.0 aperture lens. No zoom to be found here. That's a staple of the X100 series though and it restricts working practice in a kind of beautiful way. The quality is the same tried and tested optical performance as in its predecessors, as is the APS-C sized 16-megapixel X-Trans II CMOS sensor......

The Fuji switch part II: Weddings… | Ben Jacobsen

The Fuji switch part II: Weddings… | Ben Jacobsen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Welcome to the second part of my fuji X-T1 camera review.  This post will focus primarily on how the X-T1 performs while shooting weddings.  Part I of the review (which focuses on landscape photography) is here.  I broke the review up into two sections because the two genres are quite different and I figured it’d be nice to have two shorter reviews that are more specific to what people might want to read.  First off, let me explain that I’m NOT a full time wedding photographer.  I never have been and don’t plan to be anytime soon.  I’ve been a second shooter for some friends of mine for the last three summers which is a role I really enjoy.  I’ve also had the pleasure of shooting a few weddings for close friends and I always bring my kit along to weddings I’m invited to (that’s where the above image came from).  Because I’m a second shooter I’ve been asked not to share any images from my most recent wedding until the primary photographers wrap up their blog post…   So this image won’t have a ton of images in it for a few more weeks.  For that I apologize but I figured I’d get my thoughts written down now while they’re fresh.

T-Minus Cologne | Patrick La Roque | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

We’re almost there: tomorrow at 18h55 we fly to Frankfurt. Then it’s a train to Cologne and the adventure begins. I’d love to say everything’s packed and ready…. Sure… Like that’s how life works with three young kids in the house. But we’re getting there. Below is THE KIT: X100S with the wide and tele converters. I debated taking the X-T1 for a few hours, just enough time to realize I was reverting to exactly the same reflexes the X100 had liberated me from three years ago. Which lens do I take? This? No, that? No. Way. The reason I have the converters is because Fujifilm Canada is loaning them to me along with the X100S itself — I still have the X100 and they were nice enough to let me borrow this one for the duration of our trip. As much as I still love the original X100 there’s been quite a jump in performance since its release and I’m rather used to this by now. The X-T1 does tend to spoil a guy. The old X100 is fine for quick outings but Cologne, Venice and Rome? I might've regretted my choice along the way (even though I know the images would’ve been great).......

LNDNWLK 2.0 – Taking online friendships offline | MirrorLessons | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Too many times have I heard the complaint that social media, despite the connotation of its name, has rendered us more antisocial than ever before. Locked away in our rooms, we chat with individuals who play no part in our actual day-to-day existence, tricking ourselves into believing that our social life is much richer than it actually is. This is why Mathieu and I are both firm believers that the “social media cycle” isn’t complete until online relationships are taken offline. As friendly as you can become with people via a social platform such as Twitter or Google+, there is nothing quite comparable to meeting someone face-to-face......


The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, the USA, Canada and the UK–eight nations enjoying one another’s company under one roof in the cosmopolitan city of London, all thanks to relationships being taken from the superficial online realm to the geniune offline world. This is the true definition of social media, and the spirit with which LNDNWLK came into being........

These are tentative steps, her first away from us; away from home. We spend a few hours moving in, exploring every nook and cranny, sharing her joy and excitement. But when the time comes for us leave... All that freedom becomes harder to bear. We walk away through tears and it's hard but we know it'll pass. A week from now, when we come back, she'll barely say hello — too busy with her newfound friends. Letting go is the toughest necessary thing we do......

Get Lost In Stockholm | Ivo Scholz

Get Lost In Stockholm | Ivo Scholz | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

For what it's worth, there seems to be something special about cities at the sea. They all have one more thing to offer I guess. I remember the feeling from other cities like San Francisco, Barcelona, Cagliari or Amsterdam. And now, the city alloted on 14 islands as well. The salty taste of the ocean was the first thing I sensed when arriving at Stockholm. It was hotter than the average August day. It felt good. Like a gorgeous summer day. The city was busy on that Friday afternoon. Almost like it couldn't wait for the weekend to start. It didn't take us long to feel the city. To sense its flow. Its people and its beauty. Stockholm seemed to be an open and friendly place. It smiled at us from the very beginning. Everyone was helpful and open........
