Carl Zeiss 32mm f/1.8 | What Digital Camera

Carl Zeiss 32mm f/1.8 | What Digital Camera | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
Verdict

Online prices for the Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 X-Mount prime vary hugely, from £570 to £700, so a mean figure of £635 has been quoted here. But even the bottom end of that range is a lot of money for what is simply a conventional standard lens - albeit a very good example of the genre. Nevertheless, with Nikon's AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G available for under £200, and offering almost equal image quality in many respects, Zeiss's lens looks distinctly over-priced.....

EXCLUSIVE interview with Jim Marks | What Digital Camera

EXCLUSIVE interview with Jim Marks | What Digital Camera | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Professional commercial photographer and filmmaker, Jim Marks, talks to What Digital Camera about his experiences with Fujifilm's latest compact cameras - the X100S and X20.

 

Last week, professional photographer and filmmaker, Jim Marks, dropped by the What Digital Camera office to share some of his views and opinions of two Fujifilm compact cameras - the new X100S and X20. In an interview held with What Digital Camera's Editor, Nigel Atherton, Jim explained the reasoning behind why more professional photographers are swaying towards smaller and lighter cameras. As well as using DSLRs, Jim swears by using Compact System Cameras, such as the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and a smaller compacts such as the new Fujifilm X100S.Asked the question about why he chooses to use smaller cameras instead of DSLRs, Jim replied 'Fundamentally, it's all about weight, weight, weight. When you've got a bunch of prime lenses and two bodies, and you want to fly, or go to work on a motorcycle, or a horse, you need to think about weight. The great thing about mirror less is that it's tiny and they're really discreet cameras to use. They don't shout look at me I'm a photographer and you become part of the background with them'. Asked about which Fujifilm X-Series lenses he uses the most in combination with his X-Pro 1, Jim said 'I tend to use the wide angle least. I've got a 35mm equivalent on my X100 so I usually shuttle between the 60mm and 35mm primes, which are equivalent to around 50mm and 90mm. The 35mm f/1.4 is just awesome. It's such a sharp piece of glass'.The Fujifilm X100S was one of the two Fujifilm X-Series cameras to be announced at the Consumer Electronics show earlier in the year. Said to carry over 70 improvements on its predecessor, the X100, the X100S features a 16.3MP X Trans CMOS sensor that's based on the same X Trans CMOS technology as featured within the company's X-E1. To read our first look of the Fujifilm X100S, click here. Fujifilm complimented the release of the X100S with an update to its X10 model. The new X20 sees the inclusion of an X-Trans CMOS II sensor, maintaining the same 2/3in sensor dimensions and 12MP pixel count of the X10.....

Fujifilm X-E1 review - Verdict

 

While it may appear to be simply a stripped down, more affordable X-Pro1 to tempt more people into Fujifilm's CSC family, that would be doing the X-E1 a great disservice. Similar in size to the X100, and combined with a similar premium finish that won over so many fans to Fujifilm's retro-inspired compact, the X-E1 manages to feel more refined and balanced as soon as you pick it up compared to the rather chunky X-Pro1. And while it forgoes the smart Hybrid viewfinder of the X-Pro1, the payback is the sharper, crisper EVF in the X-E1 that more than makes up for this, though you could feel a little short-changed with the fairly underwhelming rear screen. The X-E1's AF, though improved from the original X-Pro1's focusing, it's still not as fast or as responsive as systems found in the competition, while the video capabilities aren't as comprehensive either. These points aside, and the X-E1 is a joy to shoot with. The back-to-basics philosophy won't be for everyone, but it means its quick and easy to set-up and shoot with, while the Quick menu offers access to other key shooting controls. The real jewel in the crown of the X-E1 is its sensor. The quality of the results and the detail rendered is excellent, delivering images that are some of, if not the best we've seen from an APS-C sized sensor. While it may be a bit more of a niche camera than some other models, those who opt for the X-E1 will be rewarded with a camera that looks the part, handles well and delivers images beyond what its price may suggest.


Scores:
Design: 19/20
Image Quality: 19/20
Performance: 17/20
Value: 18/20
Features: 17/20
Overall Score: 90%

Fujifilm X-T1 Review | What Digital Camera

Fujifilm X-T1 Review | What Digital Camera | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


With the X-T1, Fujifilm has continued to improve upon what is already one of the most successful ranges in photography of late. The camera's X-Trans sensor once again delivers some fantastic results, recording high levels of detail throughout the ISO range and in difficult lighting conditions where you'd expect a camera of its pedigree to excel. In terms of build quality and design, the X-T1 is a camera, which impresses at first look and continues to do so when in the hand. There has been a fair amount of discussion about how the X-T1 is the camera the Nikon Df should have been - in terms of its design and more compact nature - and it's really difficult to disagree with such critics. Although you are sacrificing a little in terms of real high ISO work, on the whole the X-T1 is certainly a more appealing package, especially when you take into consideration you could buy two X-T1's, both with the 18-55mm kit lens, for practically the same price as the Nikon Df with the 50mm with which it's sold. The X-T1 isn't entirely without flaw - it would have been nice to see Fujifilm add a touchscreen to the camera, while the option to have the camera in a silver finish would also be appealing......

Fujifilm X-E2 Review | Compact System Camera Reviews | What Digital Camera

Fujifilm X-E2 Review | Compact System Camera Reviews | What Digital Camera | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


...the Fujifilm X-E2 is a very well equipped for the enthusiast photographer it's out to target and in many ways it's the camera we wish the X-E1 were all along. Naturally, as with most replacements, Fujifilm has successfully addressed the concerns we picked up on in our review of the X-E1, these being the ageing 460k-dot, 2.8in screen and the accuracy of autofocus in low-light. Though the newly developed autofocus algorithm has improved things, it hasn't dramatically changed the lock-on speed, which remains slower than its Olympus and Panasonic rivals in the compact system camera market. Wi-fi is perhaps a given on most new models today, and even if it doesn't meet everyone's needs, it's good to see Fujifilm keeping up with the direction wireless technology is heading. That said, the Fujifilm Camera app is a long way behind others in terms of its functionality. It's not the most intuitive app to use and we'd like to see it offer wireless image capture like many other manufacturers apps. What we must remember though is that this is a chic, retro camera modeled on the rangefinder-type of camera from years gone by, so it's the image quality and hands-on experience that's ultimately key. Once familiar with the ins and outs of its operation, the solid build quality, superb handling and excellent button placement add up to offer one of the best user experiences there is.....
