Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R (Fuji X-Pro1) - Review / Test Report | Photozone

Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R (Fuji X-Pro1) - Review / Test Report | Photozone | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Compared to other mirrorless AF systems Fuji is providing very fast prime lenses straight from the beginning which is certainly a smart approach considering the premium brand claim. The Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R represents the standard lens of Fuji's new X-mount system. Covering an APS-C image field the field-of-view is equivalent to about 53mm. The combination of 18mm f/2, 35mm f/1.4 and 60mm f/2.4 makes this "gang of three" a highly attractive setup for street and travel photography.

Fujinon XF 18mm f/2 R (Fuji X-Pro1) - Review / Test Report | Photozone | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


In our first Fuji review we will cover the Fujinon XF 18mm f/2 R - one of the three initial lenses for the X-mount. Following a Fuji tradition these lenses are called "Fujinon" XF. This may be news to some but Fuji is actually a long time player in the system camera market but they were mostly active in the large- and medium format league and their Fujinon lenses earned quite a reputation till the decline of the film business - maybe google for "Fuji GX" if you are interested. Anyway, the Fujinon XF 18mm f/2 R is a so-called pancake lens - it's just about 4cm long and weights only 116g. In full format terms it is a standard wide-angle lens. An equivalent focal length of "27mm" is not so hot nowadays but it is certainly generic enough to be suitable for a couple of applications such as landscape or street photography. It is a surprisingly fast lens so it has some decent capabilities to achieve a quite shallow depth-of-field when using short focus distances.

FUJI X-PRO1 - Raw file conversion using Raw Photo Processor | SoundImagePlus

FUJI X-PRO1 - Raw file conversion using Raw Photo Processor | SoundImagePlus | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

As you can clearly see, processing raw files from the X-Pro 1 in Raw Photo Processor 64 is much better at reproducing the fine detail that gets lost in Adobe Camera Raw. I've tried this myself and it does in fact work very well.

However you should be aware that Raw Photo Processor 64 is dcraw based software and takes a while to get used to. I also found that it does increase the amount of work needed to process files, and I personally find it very difficult to get the colour right. The beta version that supports the X-Pro 1 is also Mac only.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera Review | Christopher Snow

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera Review | Christopher Snow | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
The brand new X-Pro1 is Fujifilm’s flagship digital camera, the ultimate device for old-school hobbyists who crave the style and mechanical control of classic cams. Do not be fooled by the retro design, performance is absolutely state of the art. This camera lit up our labs with some of the best scores of the year, solidifying the X-Pro1 as far more than a simple gimmick, but rather a legitimate contender to the very top of the line.

Demosaicing the Fuji X-Pro1 and its X-Trans CMOS sensor | ChromaSoft | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Looks like it's the time for oddball sensors. Or for me to write about them anyway. I've just finished updating PhotoRaw for the Fuji X-Pro1, and I thought it was worthwhile to document the journey, and what it means for the X-Pro1's X-Trans sensor. Specifically, whether it will deliver on the claims that Fuji has made for it.

Fuji X-Pro 1 grand test with Leica M Mount lenses | picabroad.com

Fuji X-Pro 1 grand test with Leica M Mount lenses | picabroad.com | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I really don’t like lens testing as it saps away what little creative energy I have and someone, somewhere is always unsatisfied with the testing methodology. Also modern lenses are so good that any nitpicking under high resolution is, frankly, time you should be out shooting. Nonetheless, I was so suprised at the results from my Leica fit lenses on my Fuji X-Pro (using the Kipon adapter) that I decided it was worth an hour of my life to delve further....

Fujifilm X-Pro1, Test - Samples by Spanish DSLR MAGAZIN | Google translation | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

As not only tables and charts that man lives, we offer a wide selection of images taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and its three optical XF. Direct camera JPG images at full resolution, unedited, the perfect way to understand and complement the data presented in our previous optical test .

Overall it appears that these three objectives-served by the X-Trans sensor and processor, the key to this team, they behave almost exactly as it was hoped that they would do in theory: an extraordinary image quality, reminiscent of the best times of the optical telemetry and high-definition movies.

Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R macro (Fuji X-Pro1) - Review / Test Report | Photozone

Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R macro (Fuji X-Pro1) - Review / Test Report | Photozone | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


The Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R macro is the first tele lens for the Fuji X-mount system. Fuji follows a "dual mode" approach here. Being aware of their limited production resources they mixed the concepts of a relatively fast tele and a macro lens. Regarding its max. aperture of f/2.4 it is certainly no speed demon but fast enough for e.g. very decent portraits. The macro capabilities are limited to a max. magnification of 1:2 which may be disappointing to some. However, this should be well sufficient for mainstream macro photography.

There's not much more to say that the test results don't already show: very good performance, even when used wide open, and excellent performance when stopped down just a little. If you're an X-Pro 1 user, this is another lens that definitely deserves a place in your bag.

Fuji X-Pro 1 Support Comes to Lightroom. A Quick First Look | Thomas Fitzgerald Photography | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
X-Pro 1 Support has finally come to Lightroom and Camera Raw. Many people have been eagerly awaiting this and now that it’s finally here I took a little time this morning to have a look and see what it was like. I’ve kept all the raw files from everything I’ve shot so far, so it was simply a matter of going back and loading them into Lightroom. So what’s it like? Unfortunately it’s a good news, bad news kind of situation.

ChromaSoft: Demosaicing the Fuji X-Pro1 | Part 2 | Chromasoft | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I was somewhat bemused to find that the original post, which was a largely technical article, was picked up a number of photography news sites. Anything with with "Demosaicing" in the title should have been a dead give away that the content isn't really light reading. Some of the interpretations and comments on the forums were "interesting" to say the least. Especially the the suggestion I was in some way "lazy" was certainly a new take(!) This after going to a lot of trouble support the X-Pro1, resulting in PhotoRaw being the first raw developer (other than SILKYPIX, which had pre-release help from Fuji) to provide non-beta X-Pro1 support.
