Souvenirs de Paris , la deuxième partie | Michelle George

Souvenirs de Paris , la deuxième partie | Michelle George | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

I’ve just got back from vacation trip to Paris, this time it was for pleasure, not work…though after seeing Peter Lindberg’s current exhibition at the Gagosian gallery I felt an overwhelming need to take some pictures. So I contacted my friend and model Gina Woitke who happens to live in Paris with a view to combining street photography and portraiture. All I had on this trip was my Fuji X e1 with its 18-55 mm kit lens so we decided to keep it very raw. Stripped back, no make up, no styling and no retouching. All Post production is done in Adobe Lightroom with a view to give it a filmic look........

Review | 20 Countries with Fujifilm X-Series Cameras | Elia Locardi

Review | 20 Countries with Fujifilm X-Series Cameras | Elia Locardi | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

Since May of 2013, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Fujifilm X-Series Cameras and XF lenses, and during that time I’ve managed to shoot with them in more than 20 different countries, spanning nearly every possible photography condition. In the process, I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting many Fujifilm shooters from around the world and what I’ve discovered is that people love their Fujifilm cameras and, like me, they’re excited to talk about them. There have been quite a few times, where I was completely immersed in a sea of tripods, riddled with shooters toting every type of camera brand known to man. People with Canons, Nikons, Pentax, and Hasselblads, all sizing each other’s gear up—in typical photographer fashion—while never exchanging a word. Fujifilm shooters on the other hand, just seem to smile at each other, as if they have a shared secret that no one else knows. It’s the strangest thing, but even during photo walks, Fujifilm shooters seem to congregate; proud to be carrying their cameras and excited to talk about their favorite lenses and what is to come. There’s a sense of community and shared love for these cameras that I find absolutely delightful.......

The Fuji X-E1 & Fuji X-Pro1 and why I love mine | John Barclay

The Fuji X-E1 & Fuji X-Pro1 and why I love mine | John Barclay | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it


I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Fuji X cameras I’ve been using.  I thought it might be useful to share my thoughts on why I went with Fuji and have both the X-Pro 1 and X-E1 along with the X100. I was getting tired of lugging 40 lbs of gear in a backpack.  I was intrigued by the “mirrorless” revolution and started to investigate what was out there.  The Sony left me cold, feeling more like an electronic device rather than a camera. The Olympus is a micro 4/3 sensor and I wanted at least APS C.  I wanted the bokeh and performance that a bigger sensor would provide.  That said, the new Olympus is getting rave reviews for its performance.  I think Michael Reichman said it best in his recent review, “MFT used to mean some compromises when it came to image quality, but those days are past. Only the most neurotic pixel peeper will find anything to kvetch about with files from the Olympus E-M1 and its contemporaries.” After much research, I settled on the retro looking X100, a dedicated 23mm non-interchangable lens camera. I admit, I fell for its retro looks and unique and highly regarded dual optical/EVF viewfinder.  It has its quirks such as slow focus speed, however, when I opened the first file of a family that asked me to photograph them for a Christmas card, I was ASTOUNDED!   The color, tones and sharpness of the images were truly breathtaking.....

Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Preview | Digital Photography Review

Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Preview |  Digital Photography Review | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it


Over the past few years, the digital camera market has been transformed by the arrival of mirrorless system cameras. Freed from film-era design constraints, these can provide image quality to match SLRs in a much more portable form factor. Entry-level models provide compact-camera like handling and simplicity, while high-end cameras such as the Sony NEX-7, Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Fujifilm X-E1 are able to offer a full set of enthusiast-friendly manual controls in smaller, more discreet systems, and with relatively few compromises. However to persuade buyers to forsake their SLRs, the camera companies also need to offer lens lines that will cover their needs. While most manufacturers have attacked the mirrorless market from the bottom up, Fujifilm's approach has been the opposite, starting with unashamedly top-end X-Pro1 followed up by the more enthusiast-oriented X-E1. The company's lens line reflects this - instead of starting out with entry-level kit zooms, it took the decidedly unusual step of launching with three fixed-focal length primes. The first zoom appeared with the X-E1, but the XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.5 R LM OIS is no ordinary 'kit' lens, offering premium optics and a faster maximum aperture.

The XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS telephoto zoom follows in the same vein - according to Fujifilm the aim is to provide premium optical quality and construction alongside class-leading image stabilization. Like the 18-55mm it features a relatively fast maximum aperture, gathering half a stop more light than most similar zooms for SLRs, and it uses a pair of linear stepper motors for near-silent autofocus. As with the other XF lenses, it also offers all-metal barrel construction and an on-lens aperture control ring. The overall picture is of a decidedly premium lens, that's quite unlike the inexpensive 55-200mm F4-5.6 telezooms for APS-C SLRs.

Make your house look big. Must shoot with a wide angle lens from a little above door knob height (slightly above kitchen counter tops). Use remote flashes to fill in dark spaces. And, for the love of god, make sure your lines are straight (both horizontal and vertical, don't have leaning walls or tilted frames).

Fujifilm X-E1 Review | Tim Bray

Fujifilm X-E1 Review | Tim Bray | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it


What happened was, this month includes trips to Tokyo and the Big Island. And lately I’ve been reading about cameras full of shiny new ideas. So I decided to indulge myself; here are way too many words about the state of cameras in general and in particular the one I bought. SLRs are fat-bodied because you need a big glass prism to bend the light from the lens to the viewfinder. If you lose the prism, you free camera designers from a bunch of constraints. Most obviously, you can have smaller thinner bodies that are friendlier to hand and handbag.....

Fujifilm XE1 Review | Kale J. Friesen

 

I joined the Fujifilm X-Photographers team at the beginning of 2013 so I decided it would be great do a quick hands on review, and talk about the things I love and don't love about the Fujifilm X-E1. Although it's not the perfect camera there are a lot of things that make this camera great for users that want good photographs, retro/clean styling and a variety of lenses to invest in.

Fuji X-T1 vs Fuji X-E1 / JWC

Fuji X-T1 vs Fuji X-E1 / JWC | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

I have wrote many times on this blog how I’m not going to upgrade to a new camera. I am anti G.A.S. But I recently ran into a deal where a X-T1 was $400 off. I could not pass that up so I decided to get it. When you shoot a lot, you know when you need to upgrade. I was getting to that point with my X-E1. I was shooting about 5000 photos a month. The X-E1 felt sluggish. I knew I had to upgrade, but the prices felt too high for me. I remember upgrading from an X100 to an X100s. That was a mistake. It was not a huge upgrade so I felt like I wasted my money. Then how is the X-T1 compared to a X-E1? It’s a huge difference. It seems like a worthy upgrade to me. I could not believe how fast it was. Everything felt lighting quick. When I first turned on my X-T1, my mouth dropped when I experienced how fast the AF was. Then I realized I didn’t even have High Performance mode on. I didn’t even get the latest lens firmware to take advantage of the Phase Detection pixels! Once I did that, the AF became even faster......

COMPARISON: Fujifilm X-E1, X100s, X20 & X10 | Ron Martinsen

COMPARISON: Fujifilm X-E1, X100s, X20 & X10 | Ron Martinsen | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it


I recently reviewed the Fujifilm X-E1 and really enjoyed it. As a X10 owner, I’ve been very interest in the X series cameras by Fujifilm so I had great hopes that they would continue to improve. They have, so I was thrilled last week when my review copy of the X20 arrived, but I was shocked when the X100s arrived this week. I thought – how perfect, I can finally get to compare some of the most exciting Fujifilm cameras all at the same time! I was in the final stages of my X20 review and quite happy with what I was seeing, so to have the new X100s in the mix is going to delay my original plans a bit. However, I think many readers will enjoy a first hand account of how they compare. I hope you stick with me for this and the subsequent articles where I do just that. Now before anyone blows a gasket, I realize that the X10/20 are very different from the XPro-1, X-E1, and X100s cameras. I’m including this comparison simply because I have all of the cameras together. I also often get asked about all of the X series cameras, so here’s a one stop shop to find out what I think.

 

Conclusion

 

I’ll dive into more details in my upcoming X20 and X100s reviews, but let me just say – Fujifilm fans rejoice – the engineers have listened and taken these charming cameras and made them usable. I’m definitely buying my X20 review unit and I’m going to have a hard time not getting the X-E1 replacement down the road (I still prefer interchangeable zoom lenses with stabilization)....

A day in Georgetown with the Fuji X-E1 | Mark Hilliard

A day in Georgetown with the Fuji X-E1 | Mark Hilliard | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it


I spent last Sunday in Georgetown, SC.  I had a gallery change out in a gallery that I am a member of (Co-Op).  The change out only took about an hour so I decided to take the rest of the day to scout new locations and just shoot! There are several places there that I love to visit.  As you drive North on Front Street out of the Down Town area you start passing several side streets on the right.  Each of these leads to a marina with several Shrimp Boats (and in 1 case many!).  I like walking around the docks and working each group of boats then moving in closer and doing detail images. These vessels are not long to be with us so if you have the chance to visit and photograph them you should youmake it a priority to do so! The choice between Color and B&W is a tough one for most photographers.  For me, I like B&W much better but I will porcess both for each and every image that I take.  So I will have the choice as to what I eventually use readily on hand! I do not normally shoot intentional lens flair but for this image I composed the image with it in mind! This generated such a perfect series of light beams that they were visible in front of the boats cabin door! Again, the choice between Color and B&W was a no brainer for me! ....
