Test Fujifilm X-E2 : caractéristiques - Focus Numérique

Test Fujifilm X-E2 : caractéristiques - Focus Numérique | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

Au premier coup d'oeil, pas facile de différencier un X-E1 d'un tout nouveau X-E2 tant la conception ergonomie semble similaire. Pourtant, le X-E2 est une belle évolution du précédent modèle avec notamment un tout nouveau capteur Cmos X-Trans.


Enfin tout nouveau, pas vraiment, puisqu'il s'agit d'un modèle équivalent à celui qui officie déjà dans leX100S. Pas de révolution en soit donc, mais les utilisateurs apprécieront l'arrivée d'un module autofocus à corrélation de phase à l'aide de 100 000  pixels dédiés.

I detached the tele converter

I detached the tele converter | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
Today I decided to detach the TCL-X100 tele converter from my Fuji X100. Why so? I purchased it to get a 50 mm focal length to make the X100 better portrait camera and to get that FoV in general. The tele converter was working very nicely in outdoor use but I was not so happy with it indoors in poor lighting conditions. My intention was to use my Ricoh GR (28 mm equivalent) with my Fuji X100 with the tele converter (50 mm equivalent) to get two-camera combo which is small in size. Actually the X100 is not any small camera when the TCL-X100 is attached to it. That combination is almost same size (and actually heavier) than my Fuji X-Pro1 with XF 35/1.4 lens attached. And of course the XF 35/1.4 lens is much better than the tele converter. Sharper and faster. So, if I want a 28/50 mm combo the best option would be the GR with X-Pro1.

I took a twisty grad filter on the X100 which is a piece of kit which I find really great to use, not always for blanking the horizon but also balancing any strong light, so if you have dark woods to your left and a clearing to your right then pop the grad filter round and you all get a more balanced image.

Have your say: Best High-end ILC of 2014 | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
2014 was a good year for enthusiast photographers, and saw a range of extremely high-quality DSLRs and mirrorless cameras released from all of the major manufacturers. As well as iterative upgrades to existing cameras, we also saw brand new products from Fujifilm and Samsung, and 4K video made its first appearance in this product class.

Gallery: Nicole with the Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2R APD | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

Fujifilm Canada was kind enough to recently lend me both variations of their 56mm lenses, the XF 56mm f/1.2R and the XF 56mm f/1.2R APD. What the term "APD" stands for, is that variant's internalapodization filter, essentially an inbuilt radial ND filter that is darkest at the outer edge and feathers to clear part way in towards the centre. The effect this has, is to smooth out the transitional edges of the out-of-focus areas of an image and has its strongest effect wide open at f/1.2. I will go into more detail in a future blog entry that will also have some animations, comparing both 56mm lenses at various f-stops.

Fuji-Xperience: X-T1 o X-E2

Fuji-Xperience: X-T1 o X-E2 | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

X-T1 vs X-E2 un enfrentamiento mental que muchos posibles compradores sopesan antes de tomar la decisión.

Puede que el hecho de que sobre la balanza la X-T1 de más que la X-E2 en términos absolutos haga pensar que no hay lugar a dudas... pero ¿es realmente asi?



Tras varios meses de uso de ambos modelos creo que puedo escribir una entrada que responda a esa pregunta que de forma frecuente me planteáis por privado a través de facebook y twitter.

Photographers can capture high quality images with the 16.3 Megapixel APS-C sensor. The camera is capable of shooting full high-definition movies (30 frames per second), incorporating the color effects of Film Simulations and beautiful bokeh achieved with the combination of the large sensor and a wide aperture setting.
Fujifilm’s accurate eye detection auto focus technology detects and focuses on the eye of the subject within the frame thereby enabling easy capture of self portraits.

Italian fishing village with the Fuji XT1

Italian fishing village with the Fuji XT1 | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

Fuji';s design team started from scratch with this lens, in order to make it as small as possible, and it has amazing image stabilisation. This makes it possible to shoot handheld at even 140mm. The aperture ring makes it possible to switch between Auto (where the camera decides what it deems best for the circumstances) and manually selecting opening. Nice feature, but you need to get used to the fact that it’s easy to accidentally turn to an undesired setting. Hence all the peer shots you see here where shot at f/22 and ISO 200, handheld. Still tad sharp, no real visible loss of sharpness due to diffraction. There is some blurring in the fishing lines due to the longer shutter speed, but the image stabilisation managed to keep the rest of the image focussed and sharp.andheld at even 140mm.

L'annonce était très attendue. Le X100T (T pour Third) est la troisième mise à jour du X100, le boîtier qui a lancé Fujifilm dans l'univers de l'hybride en 2011, et avec maestria.

Ceux qui attendaient des évolutions majeures en seront pour leur frais, le X100T restant "très X100S", jusque dans son capteur. Mais le X100T apporte son lot d'améliorations, et elles sont loin d'être insignifiantes.

Showdown At Big Sky

Showdown At Big Sky | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
The kit lens of the Fuji X-M1 starts at 16mm, the kit lens of my Fuji X-T1 starts only at 18mm. Sounds like just a small difference but it not. The Fuji XF 18-55 OIS is a very fine lens but I wish that Fuji would make a mkII – version that starts at 16mm. I was looking forward to get the new XF 2.8/16-55 WR instead but unfortunately this lens is a monster: big and heavy! I can’t see me to use that lens when I want to travel light. Even though it lacks image stabilization the new 16-55 WR weighs 655 grams! The 18-55 OIS was only 310 grams. Compared to the new 16-55 WR even the 18-135 OIS WR seems light with its 490 grams. The 18-135 would be a great travel lens but again it only starts at 18mm.

Shooting Ultra High Shutter Speeds with the Fuji X-T1 | Dan Bailey's Adventure Photography Blog

Shooting Ultra High Shutter Speeds with the Fuji X-T1 | Dan Bailey's Adventure Photography Blog | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
Last month, Fujifilm released a major firmware update for the X-T1 camera, which added 27 new features. One of the coolest additions is an electronic shutter (ES) option that lets you shoot at ultra high shutter speeds. If you enable the ES, the camera will switch over when you pass 1/4,000 sec, and allow speeds of up to 1/32,000 second. That’s “one thirty-two thousandth of a second.” Kind of hard is that to say, isn’t it?

Can This Photographer Find Happiness With A Fujifilm X-T1? | The Wandering Lensman | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

 Fujifilm first introduced the X-T1 and it was an instant sensation. Falling under the Fuji spell from what I read and saw, I bought one the first week of March, 2014.  Actually, I bought three.  When testing the first kit, I found the image stabilization on the 18-55mm lens was not properly working.  Back it went.  I ordered another.  The second had several dead pixels on the sensor.  Back it went.  Third time is the charm, as the saying goes.  I bought a third.

This year saw a number of new cameras released in the high-end compact category, and as well as updated versions of earlier cameras, we also saw brand new products, and - increasingly - a shift to larger sensors as a major differentiator. 2014 was the year that Canon moved to the 1-inch sensor format, and Panasonic even managed to fit a Micro Four Thirds sensor into its LX100.

It was a grey and gloomy day, not overly inspiring for photography but I thought I’d bring my X100s with the TCL-X100 converter attached with me while I took my dogs out for a walk. Most of the walk was spent either trying to avoid slipping over in the thick, wet mud or turning my body to avoid having a face full of rain. I was shooting with the black and white + red filter preset as it worked well with the gloomy conditions for some moody shots. As I reached the top of the hill I was walking up, I noticed how quickly the clouds were moving across an adjacent hilltop and instantly decided to drive back to this location with my tripod and filters...

Review: Fujifilm 11mm Extension Tube MCEX-11 - Admiring Light

Review: Fujifilm 11mm Extension Tube MCEX-11 - Admiring Light | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

Fuji surprised the market by releasing something that is both the first of its kind and something that people have been waiting for since the beginning of mirrorless: Native OEM extension tubes. It’s surprising to me that it took 6 years for the first original equipment manufacturer to create extension tubes for their system.  In November 2014, Fuji announced the MCEX-11 and MCEX-16: 11mm and 16mm extension tubes for their X-Series cameras.  Third party manufacturers have made a handful of extension tubes for various mounts for some time, but these two are the first from the camera manufacturers themselves.  In this short review, I’m going to take a look at the Fuji 11mm extension tube, the MCEX-11,...

Fuji X100T vs X100s - 9 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade

Fuji X100T vs X100s - 9 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

In the last few months I've been reading a lot of blogs and reviews on the Fuji X100T, and there is this thing they all seem to imply, "The X100T isn't really worth the upgrade if you already own the X100s." So I borrowed the X100s for awhile and...


So to get to the bottom of this, I decided to borrow a Fuji X100s and try it out for a week to see how it felt compared to the X100T. Most people have the X100s before trying out the X100T, where as I've been using the T and am going back to the S. And wow! The T is a serious upgrade. It's hard to believe the S is only a year and a half old. Feels more like five years.

Fujifilm X-E2 Review – Hands On Review

Fujifilm X-E2 Review – Hands On Review | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

I wanted the review to be organic, realistic and useful for photographers. This won’t be a large list of technical specifications, but rather, this review is on using the camera and how it performs. Here goes…


It’s important to note that I wrote this review before the December firmware release and I added the 35 mm section after the release. One of the thing’s that I love about the Fujifilm community, is that they listen to their buyers. If something isn’t great with the current firmware they endeavour to fix it within the next update. As a photographer this is important, it makes you feel like your opinion is valued, and it makes for a better user experience.

Ok, so I know I am late to the party but hey, being late is fashionable right? So after much deliberation I purchased a Fuji X100s (a few months before the Fuji X100T was announced) for several reasons.

As a documentary wedding photographer I’m always looking for something to add to may arsenal of tools to allow me capture special moments. I had read all the technical reviews and real world usages, I liked the styling, Image quality was superb, High ISO noise handled well, silent shutter etc etc at least that’s what they all said..
