Although the sensor inside the Fujifilm X20 shares its 2/3in dimensions with that found in the X10, Fujifilm has opted to use the X-Trans CMOS technology in place of the EXR sensor used previously.

XF lens Fujifilm's whole body. This is why a standard range zoom and prime lenses some have been line-up so far, telephoto zoom system was released finally. Because it had been published previously in the lens roadmap Fujifilm-provided, of course, but also for everyone currently under consideration, all of you are using the X-Series feel lens that have been waiting for that me appeared or would not be. Lens attractive does have XF lens, but in the scene you want drawn to the subject at hand, it was the place I want a telephoto system still. Has a zoom range of 305mm from 84mm in 35mm format, because it is a spec of camera shake correction function with the 4.5 stage of Furthermore, it can you make it possible to shoot without being bound to the situation and time zone more than ever will. I did what you said I tried shooting in various conditions this time, depiction with the three-dimensional impression and dense and the strength of the backlight to the expected. It is in the presence of slightly larger certainly in the XF lineup of lenses, but also have this capability, and much more compact compared to the lens of the same class of single-lens reflex. I can say us to enable new shooting style, and reliable lens.

Fujifilm X-E1 Review | J R BERNSTEIN

Fujifilm X-E1 Review | J R BERNSTEIN | Fuji XE-1 | Scoop.it


If you have read my Fujifilm X-Pro1 review (which, by now, you should have), you’ll know that I was very impressed. So going into this review, and knowing what I knew of the camera, I was somewhat sceptical of the X-E1 living up to my demands. (SPOILER ALERT!) Sadly, I have to confess that my fears were not completely unfounded. In short, the X-E1 is not the camera for me. I’d rather just pony-up the extra $400 to get the X-Pro1. To me, the X-E1 is missing of bit of the magic that the X-Pro1 has. While a little quirky, the X-Pro1 is a splendid camera to use.  The saving-grace of the X-Pro1 is its brilliant hybrid viewfinder. It makes every other minor quibble…well, minor.  But, without the hybrid viewfinder, I found the overall experience of the X-E1 less to my liking......

Conclusion

While I might not love the X-E1 like I do the X-Pro1, it’s hard not to at least like it. After all, it performs like a champ, uses the same great range of Fujinon XF lenses as the X-Pro1, is small and light-weight, and looks like a million bucks! For some people, I think the X-E1 is probably the perfect compromise  It has most of the same professional features as the X-Pro1, but is a smaller, lighter, more consumer-friendly package, and would certainly be a welcome gift by any photo enthusiast.....

Maximum detail RAW processing. DCRAW - Fuji X-Pro1 & XE-1 | Terrance Lam | Fuji XE-1 | Scoop.it

 

So after playing with this for weeks, I believe this is probably the maximum that we can get out of the Fuji RAF files until the other developers come up with better understanding of the unique X-Trans CMOS sensor. Now this is still not the most ideal workflow for most people. Pixel Peeping aside, the Fuji X files are fantastic, even in Adobe Lightroom. My goal in this was to get a better understanding of what is going on. I wish I knew how to program, because I'd love to create a simpler way to do this. If there's anyone out there that is interested in taking what I've done and turning into a nice little drag and drop application, I think you'd get a lot of fans.


The Process
1. Using command line DCRAW: dcraw -a -H 0 -o 4 -q 2 -f -m 15 -g 2.4 12.9 -6 -T
2. Convert TIFF file to LAB file in Photoshop
3. Resize image 200% with Bicubic Smoother
4, Select Lightness Channel under channel panel.
5. Select Median filter under Noise in Filter. Select 1 pixel
6. Resize image 50% with Bicubic Sharper (Nearest Neighbour is actually a more subtle effect which I kind of prefer)
7. Save.

SilkyPix and RPP both process very similar files and although I know for certain that RPP uses DCRAW, SilkyPix I believe is a proprietary RAW engine. What I do speculate is the chroma smearing is a result of interpolation errors. Much of it can be suppressed with chroma noise reduction without loss of image quality. However one of the big nagging issues was this 'zipper' aliasing that was happening. After analyzing the files, it seems specifically the red sub-pixels are causing much of this zipper effect, but also part of the interpolation issues. I was able to get rid of a good portion of the chroma smearing by doing 3x3 multi-pass median filtering through DCRAW.....

Shooting with the Fuji 55-200 mm | Nick Lukey

Shooting with the Fuji 55-200 mm | Nick Lukey | Fuji XE-1 | Scoop.it


A rather big box arrived at the gallery this morning, furiously cutting through a million miles of tape and plastic air bags, lay my new lens, the 55-200 mm. It looked impressive and had a nice heft, not too heavy not too light. Quickly grabbed the X pro, locked into place nicely. Initial thoughts are very well made feels and looks good. The balance of the camera is quite even. Did the firmware upgrade, and had a play. Image quality is awesome, no I'm not bullshitting this glass is good, I would say a tad sharper than my 70-200 f2.8 vr2. Contrast is good too. The hood is nice and large and thankfully not a tulip one. The image stabilization works very well, however I think it will suck the hell out of the battery. Zoom ring is a trifle stiff but the aperture ring is a delight positive clicks. Not impressed by not having the aperture markings on the lens, this is a faux pas to me, you read the aperture in the viewfinder. I like to use it by setting it beforehand without having to raise the camera to my eye. The OVF is a waste of time so it's EVF only with this baby attached. The light this evening is fabulous so I'm off to give it a workout. Well after spending a couple of hours out in the lanes. I am more than impressed by the image quality,and all round handling of the X pro 55-200 combo. Some of my shots tonight were direct into the setting sun testing out its flare handling, very very good, one of the flaws in my Nikon 70-200 was side flare, the Fuji lens showed none of those issues at all.  That said the lens does struggle with focus, sometimes on seemingly easy to focus subjects. Macro focus is good I've never had a 300 mm focus so close. Overall I would score the lens 9/10. My lens roadmap is complete, the Nikons are being retired. Next up another body i think an XE 1, and leave the 55-200 on that.....
