Fujifilm X100s: Prime Impressioni | Massimiliano Angeloni

Fujifilm X100s: Prime Impressioni | Massimiliano Angeloni | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Eccoci qui… questa volta ancora prima della commercializzazione di un prodotto. Ma lo sapete. A noi non piacciono le cose fatte in fretta.
Quindi sono solo prime impressioni. Prime impressioni che non ci hanno impedito di riscontrare le prime certezze rispetto ai modelli precedenti. X20 e X100s non possono essere liquidate con poche foto e qualche riga come fanno in molti. Sono prodotti che, contrariamente ad un’estetica quasi immutata, riscrivono profondamente l’interpretazione di Fujifilm di questi due modelli e dei rispettivi segmenti di mercato. Ma in molti aspettano di conoscere maggiormente questi strumenti fotografici e di conseguenza, non potevamo più aspettare. Aspettare che significava anche prestare il fianco ai primi flame sul web che come sempre accompagnano l’uscita di un nuovo modello. Flame e leggende metropolitane che trovano alimento per colpa delle raffazzonate “recensioni definitive” basate su qualche decina di scatti su strumenti di Pre-Serie. L’ultima leggenda metropolitana racconta che le nuove Fujifilm hanno subito un ritardo nella distribuzione per colpa di chi sa quale fantomatico problema. La realtà è ben differente. La realtà è che questa volta Fujifilm vuole fornire un prodotto maturo ai propri clienti. E si prende tutto il tempo che aveva programmato. Purtroppo sono alcuni venditori della rete che, per accaparrarsi qualche pre-ordine in più, anticipano la data ufficiale. Le X20 e le X100s erano programmate in uscita per metà- fine marzo… e per metà-fine marzo saranno messe in vendita. Se qualche modello è sfuggito a questa logica un firmware basterà ad aggiornare in tutte le funzionalità i nuovi modelli. Firmware con il quale sono equipaggiate le due macchine con le quali abbiamo iniziato a scattare e a scrivere le prime impressioni.......

X100S vs. X100 | Rico Pfirstinger


Please note the following general discoveries:

1. X100S sensor appears to be a little less sensitive than X100 sensor.

2. Fuji has changed the gradation of their film simulation modes in the X100S, notably Provia, which now offers more shadow contrast and is now at the same level as Astia in this respect.

3. Auto-WB can yield different results in the X100S and X100.

If not noted otherwise, all JPEG SOOC samples were processed in-camera with standard settings for sharpening, NR, color and contrast.

Fujifilm X-Pro 1 scouts Prague | Jim Gamblin | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


A break was needed or least that is how I thought of it.  Perhaps a little history first.  My journey in photography began at the age of 12.  A few years went by using my father’s Retina IIa.   At first I started photographing races at Laguna Seca race track, then some work on the high school newspaper.  After a stint in the Army, I became much more interested and involved in the craft.  Which resulted in building my own darkroom and buying my first Nikon SLR camera system in 1973.


Later on after going to a photographic institute in California, I made my way to Los Angles to work in the commercial photo studios there with the intent to open my own someday.  It was not to be for a number of reasons and I eventually made it back to the San Francisco Bay Area.  Where I immediately got some work doing location scouting for the film industry.  San Francisco being a much filmed at location. At first I thought this would be temporary, but then twenty years went by before  knew it.  As it turned out, it was the right job for me.  No studio overhead to worry about.  Travel not only around California, but to most of the western states and much of the eastern seaboard.  Photographing places, things and people and getting paid for my efforts.  Luck has been with me in this regard. Now I find myself living in the Netherlands, teaching photography courses and shooting a few weddings a year. Back to that “break” I needed.  Prague the capital of the Czech Republic and the historical capital of Bohemia, happens also to be, much like San Francisco a city favored by film makers.  So I decided to go there on a self invented assignment, harkening back to the days of my old job. The difference though was instead of two or three Nikons bodies and assorted lessons, I was going to go “light”.  This is where the Fuji X Pro 1 came in.  In addition there was the decision on which lenses to bring.  The choice was eventually narrowed down to the Fujinon 35mm f/1.4, an old Contax/Zeiss 90mm f/2.8 and my latest acquisition, a Voigtlander 50mm Nokton f/1.5.  A lens that I will be doing a later review on.  The whole kit, including accessories and camera bag (see photo) came in at 2.4 kilos /5.3 pounds.

My blog was very quiet for a while, a lot longer than I was hoping for. Much happened photographically over the last couple of months and I ended up selling all of my Nikon gear and buying a Hasselblad 503CW and a Leica M6. I will write more about that in a separate post a little later.

Rebecca and I moved houses recently. From a pretty modern and specious house into something we were always dreaming of, a little old farmhouse close to the sea. This has been a very exciting step for us. Our new house is a lot smaller and a lot more simple. But with all its quirks it is so endearing and a place where we really feel home.

All the shots below were taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 and the Fujinon 35mm 1.4 lens ....
