The FujiFilm X-T1 Owners Have Been Heard!

The FujiFilm X-T1 Owners Have Been Heard! | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
As a pretty new FujiFilm X-T1 owner, I’m super stoked to see such an awesome list of updates to this already amazing camera! I’ve got to say that FujiFilm has been listening pretty well to current owners and have implemented a number of awesome changes! There are quite a few things that have been added to this revision.

I’m excited to share a truncated yet still somewhat long list (at 10) that I’m personally looking forward to! If you’re an owner, you’re going to love the boost that the camera is going to get! I’ve added my little notes in italics for each bullet.

FUJIFILMの大口径レンズ『XF 56mm F1.2 R APD』のご紹介です。 レンズ名を聞いて、あれ?と思われる方もいるかもしれません。『XF56mm F1.2 R』というレンズが2014年2月に既に発売されているからです。派生モデルとして登場した本レンズの最大の特徴は『APD(アポダイゼーション)フィルター』というものが内蔵されている事。これは中心部から周辺部に向けてグラデーションのかかった特殊なNDフィルターの事で、ボケの輪郭を滑らかにし柔らかく美しいボケ味を表現する事のできる機構です。果たしてそのAPDの効果はいかに。ボケ味を生かすため絞り開放で撮影をしてきました。

Fujinon 50-140mm f2.8 LM OIS WR: Review

Fujinon 50-140mm f2.8 LM OIS WR: Review | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
For more than 3 years Fujifilm has been producing stunningly sharp lenses for their X-series camera. The 35 mm f/1.4 was one of their first lens and it was so sharp I was sure it was a software trick inside the camera.  Then came the other lens with the 56 mm f/1.2 being the go-to for portrait photographers. But there was still an obvious gap in their lens line up. Sharp or not, there was not a 70-200 mm f/2.8 equivalent lens, that is until now. That hole is now filled with the Fujinon 50-140mm f2.8 and it is amazing.

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR - Admiring Light | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
Fujifilm’s X-Series interchangeable lens system has only been around for a bit less than three years, and in that time, they’ve managed to put together a rather impressive lens lineup.  However, missing from that lineup until recently are pro-grade fast zoom lenses.  While the fast standard zoom is set to be released in 2015, Fuji users get the telephoto zoom just before the holidays.  Today I’ll review the Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8 OIS WR.  This is the second weather resistant Fuji lens, and the first constant f/2.8 zoom lens.  This is a pro-grade zoom lens with a pro-grade price, retailing for $1599.  Can this large mirrorless lens meet the very high expectations that Fuji users demand?  Let’s find out.

Fujifilm X100T review - Xpeco

I love my Fujifilm X100S. It’s the best camera I’ve ever owned. I actually sold my Canon DSLR rig and Sony mirrorless system to fund its purchase earlier this year, making it the only camera currently in my arsenal. I’m not alone, either: there are countless fans of Fujifilm’s X100 series across the world, including here at The Verge, where a number of my colleagues have also purchased the X100S for personal and professional use.

Wide and normal (and something in between)

Wide and normal (and something in between) | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
I purchased a tele conversion lens (TCL-X100) for my Fuji X100. I got it with a quite good price (139 euros) so I think it was a nice deal. The reason to get this tele converter was my desire to have two small cameras with different fixed lenses. I have Ricoh GR which has a beautiful 28 mm equivalent lens, so that camera serves as a wide option. The X100 has 35 mm equivalent lens which is, in my opinion, quite near to GR’s 28 mm. I wanted to have bigger cap between the focal lengths of these cameras and TCL-X100 just allows that and makes X100 to have 50 mm equivalent normal lens.

And Now For Something Completely Different :: Street With A Fuji 50-140mm

And Now For Something Completely Different :: Street With A Fuji 50-140mm | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
As the name of this blog would suggest, I usually shoot street photography with a 35mm lens. But after some random shooting while trying out the latest 50-140mm f2.8 zoom from Fuji, I naturally was drawn to the city streets. I can’t say I felt comfortable walking around with what is a 75-210mm in full frame terms, and a bit too big and obvious for street photography. But I enjoyed the change and once again this lens blew me away with it’s sharpness and quick auto focus. You can see some of these in colour by clicking HERE. Looking at these pictures, I find it interesting that I came away with the same shots I would have with a 35mm lens, I just stood further away. It just shows that we frame the shots with our eye, not with the lens. I also shot some portraits and  reviewed this lens HERE.

The Next Level :: Fuji X-T1 Firmware v3.0 | Derek Clark Photography

The Next Level :: Fuji X-T1 Firmware v3.0 | Derek Clark Photography | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

The much anticipated v3.0 firmware (they totally skipped v2) for Fuji’s X-T1 has arrived and boy is this a big deal. It has a whopping 27 new features, with more than a few of my long term requests. I won’t go through all of them here as they’re listed on the firmware download area on the Fuji site, but I wanted to highlight a few of the most important ones here IMO. If you don’t think this update is a big deal, just think of how little difference there is between a Nikon D800 and D810. Now work out how much it would cost to upgrade from the former to the later. Did I mention this 27 feature firmware upgrade was free :o)

F / 2.8 zoom Big Three first bomb! Fujinon XF50-140mm f / 2.8 R LM OIS WR

富士X系列從X-Pro1到近期的的X-T1前後共發表過六款鏡頭可換式相機,其中X-T1的定位最為特別,因為它屬於旗艦級微單眼,不論在畫質、性能及操控各方面都是它的強項,不過一直讓小編感到納悶的就是原廠遲遲未推出等級相當的變焦鏡,也就是相機玩家最需要的大三元鏡頭,直到今年九月才見到一絲曙光,因為原廠終於正式發表了Fujinon XF50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR這顆大光圈變焦鏡頭,等效焦長來到76-213mm、光圈恆定f/2.8,這應該是多數X系列用戶所期盼的一顆變焦鏡,內建手動光圈環且採用線性馬達,另外還支援OIS鏡頭防手震,同時這顆鏡頭還具備防塵防滴的耐候能力,絕對稱得上是X系列的大三元變焦鏡之一,至於XF16-55mm F2.8 R OIS WR應該會在之後接著推出,畢竟官方的Lens Roadmap是這樣寫的,屆時就讓我們拭目而待吧!

Review: One Week With the Fujinon XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
I must admit that living with the X-series as my only system has been more challenging than I both hoped and thought before I changed my system. I was in love with the X-T1 from the moment it was announced and the previews started to appear online. As with every new love one are blinded by all the positive aspects and tend to overlook the negative ones. But after a while the first crush starts to fade and the negative aspects start to reveal themselves and the situation gets much more nuanced.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50-140 mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR review - Introduction - Lenstip.com | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
The Fujifilm system has been developed in a bit different way than other mirrorless systems such as the Micro 4/3 or the Sony E. They’ve started with amateur lenses and that product line has been emphasized by them ever since. The Fujifilm X system has chosen another strategy – at first they launched an advanced X-Pro camera and three fixed focus lenses with the following parameters: 2/18, 1.4/35 and 2.4/60. Currently the Fuji line-up still features more expensive lenses, designed for advanced photographers, than cheap, plastic zooms, aimed solely at amateurs. There is a lot of examples of that strategy; even this year’s launches included two versions of a fast 1.2/56 “prime” along a fast 50–140 mm f/2.8 zoom lens. The latter device was sent to our editorial office not so long ago and today we can present our hands-on impressions and the results of our test – enjoy!.

But this time my wife also wanted to see Bryce Canyon before breakfast. Here she took a shot with my X Pro-1 and the XC 50-230. 

I don’t need anything else than a wide angle lens on a city trip but for landscapes I must have a tele zoom lens. To me a tele zoom is more essential than a super wide angle zoom. Just look at the image above. The sunlit rocks are too far away to get a useful image with a short lens. To get a shot like the one below you need a long lens.

Hey everyone, winter has finally set itself upon us and Christmas draws near.   Fuji gave us a Christmas present this week with a major firmware upgrade (not that we needed it) for the X-T1.  Something like 27 things were added or upgraded.  Pretty massive.  But one of the biggest things was the addition of Classic Chrome film simulation.  Everyone remember the old slide film chrome days?   I wasn't a huge fan of Kodachrome (but loved the song) as I love saturated colours but it does have it's place.  So had to go out and give it a try today.

If I see someone I would like to take a portrait of, I’ll get all my settings ready before approaching them, so I am ready to start shooting at once. I set it with my Custom 2 (B/W) in the Q-menu and get my focus point in the desired position. I will switch to the EVF, as it allows me to see my exposure and lighting as close as possible to the result I will get.

Fuji X-T1 Custom Settings

Fuji X-T1 Custom Settings | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
I have previously posted my custom settings and tips for Fuji's X-T1 camera and the X-E1 based on my user experience and the regular updates that Fujifilm give us with firmware.  A big firmware update became available available on 18th December 2014 in which the X-T1 gained some very useful options, including an electronic shutter which goes to 1/32000 sec, so it will be easily possible to shoot the 56mm f1.2 wide open in any conditions without over exposure.  It is a smart shutter too, so if you have the mechanical and electronic shutter option set, flash can still be used when the shutter speed falls within that of the mechanical shutter.
The X-T1 is a fairly simple and traditional camera to use once set up due to the direct access dials, aperture ring, function buttons and set of 7 custom settings presets that can be programmed in.
