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.....

I've spoken before about my love for the Fujifilm x-series cameras. The idea of having a camera that produces good enough quality and usability without having to lug around DSLR really appeals to me, whether for day to day stuff or even on jobs. You can read my thoughts on the x100s and X-Pro1 here. Although I love them as cameras to use day to day I probably wouldn't be comfortable shooting a commercial gig exclusively on them. I tend to keep them as back-up and also as something to use for myself. However when the Fuji X-T1 came out I was excited that it could be a potentially great set-up for traveling with and shooting editorial assignments - it was much closer to the DSLR setup I'm used to using but without the bulk. With this in mind I decided to take one away with me on some recent assignments to Croatia, Spain, Morocco and Sweden. I already own some x-series lenses (18mm, 35mm) and I was lent a few extra ones (27mm, 56mm, 18-55mm, 23mm) which gave me a fairly thorough set-up........

Fujifilm is taking an important step with the new lenses it recently announced, and with the lenses that will come in 2015. We are not talking about small and compact lenses but professional lenses with a complex design that can give you the best image quality while keeping size and weight as low as possible. I think that the presence of these lenses is certainly going to help the system take a big leap forward, but many users have also started to wonder whether one of the most interesting aspects of the CSC camera, portability, is at risk......

Our first day at Photokina has been very exciting. After starting the day by interviewing three Senior Managers from Sony Japan, we went to the Fujifilm media session to discover the latest products announced a few days before the start of the event. After the presentation held by several managers from Fujifilm Japan, my heart naturally directed me towards the new X100T. Its predecessor is my favourite X camera to date and the first thing I wanted to check is whether that great feeling I had the first time I held it could be improved with this new version......

As of now I have also published my album here on my portfolio page with “just” the images, if you prefer that. There are some different content in my Exposure story compared to my album here. Head over to the album to see all the images. As usual I have ordered the images in chronological order, so make sure to get all the way and not miss any great shots!......

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.
