Fujifilm Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R Lens Review

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R Lens Review | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

The 35mm lens is one of the most popular focal lengths for photographers because of its versatility in street, reportage, and landscape photography.  For a long time, it was the one lens that was sorely missing in the Fuji XF lineup.  If you wanted a 35mm equivalent lens, you would have to either adapt another manufacturer’s lens, purchase the XF 18-55mm zoom or the XF 18mm, which is approximately a 27mm equivalent.  Fuji made a promise a long time ago that they would produce a 35mm equivalent lens, one with an F1.4 aperture no less, and people have been waiting very patiently for Fuji to deliver on this promise.  The wait is finally over: Fuji has finally released the XF 23mm F1.4 R lens, which is one of the most highly anticipated lenses in the XF lineup.

Fuji X-E2 vs Fuji X-T1: The Luxury of a Choice | Mirrorless Minutes

Fuji X-E2 vs Fuji X-T1: The Luxury of a Choice | Mirrorless Minutes | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
The two cameras are very close technically, and in performance. They share the same sensor, the same image processor etc.. In use, I didn’t feel a significant difference in performance.

It had to come down to ergonomics and functionality. That is when I found myself missing the X-E2 while I was using the X-T1. I had connected immediately with my x100s and X-E2, I didn’t connect with the X-T1.

First Impression: Lensmate Fujifilm X100T Thumbrest | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
This is my first thumbrest, so I had no idea what to expect. Personally I thought $60 was a lot for what it offered, but apparently this is one of the budget options. The build quality is okay I suppose, I was expecting a metal construction, but because I was so excited it was ready to ship out I didn't read. The device is actually made out of of aluminum, and it's extremely lightweight.

I have been waiting for this lens for some time.
When Fujifilm entered the market with the X-Pro 1 and its 3 old-school prime lenses, a 28, 50 and 90mm full-frame equivalent, they were taking aim squarely at all of us who were Leicaphiles without the deep pockets to support that particular addiction.

Metabones Speed Booster ULTRA for Fuji X cameras

Metabones Speed Booster ULTRA for Fuji X cameras | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
I've just got myself the new improved (allegedly!) Metabones speed booster ULTRA for my Fuji X cameras and Nikon lenses. This is the adapter that makes 'FF' lenses approximate the same focal length on APS-C sensors and provides a 1 stop light gathering boost as well. I'm interested in seeing if I can work with my Nikons as an across the board lens system with my all my cameras and base everything around them. If this works for me and doesn't slow me down too much because of the absence of AF (I'll be testing in the next few days to find this out) then I'll be selling quite a few lenses off.

Annie Hall Photography Personal Blog: Two Thoughts About the Fujifilm TCL-X100

Annie Hall Photography Personal Blog: Two Thoughts About the Fujifilm TCL-X100 | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
Precisely a year ago, I attached a Sony teleconversion lens with a step up ring and made a poor man's 50mm attachment for the X100S. It was neat for a few shots, but the crazy amount of distortion and warping in the sides made any photo that wasn't a close up portrait of a single person pretty much unusable.

With a trip to Japan coming up soon, I wanted the real thing. So I plunked down $350 and got the Fujifilm TCL-X100 teleconversion lens.

Steven Dempsey on Photography: Lost in White Sands National Monument | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
Living life on the road has afforded me experiences I would never have had otherwise. My wife and I began our journey from Seattle through Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Our adventures continued through Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana. Each of these states has been unique and a few places have left an indelible mark on me. The Grand Canyon was one and so was my recent trip to White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.

RAW FILE CONVERTER FOR FUJI VERS. 2.0 RELEASED

RAW FILE CONVERTER FOR FUJI VERS. 2.0 RELEASED | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

Fuji / SilkyPix have just released the latest version of their raw file converter. Unsurprisingly it's not had a good press. However, after using it for a while, I think it's being somewhat unfairly regarded and I think it's actually very good for Fuji X-Trans sensor raw file conversion. A lot of this is down to how people regard raw file conversion and photo editing in general. Some regard it as a science, when in fact it's an art and full of possibilities. There is no right or wrong way to create a file from raw, simply a set of options. In the case of the Fuji X trans sensor and the files it produces there are several requirements for me.

Seeing Better is Black and White—Part II (The Fuji Monochrom)

Seeing Better is Black and White—Part II (The Fuji Monochrom) | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
A major impediment most new photographers face is that color is the default mode of expression. Not only are we inundated by color images in every possible medium, but digital cameras presume color as the chosen palette. The tragic fact of these defaults is that it interferes with the development of seeing subjects and places emphasis on the impossible task of trying to capture a color reality which makes little natural sense in two dimensions. The result is a great deal of frustration when the captured image doesn't match the experience of color.

We previously discussed the benefits of shooting achromatic, and we've also discussed how to make the Fuji X100s into a high-ISO achromatic machine. This is a great first step into embracing the world of documentary street photography and getting your mind in synch with moments and gestalt. But we can do even better! {Better still, most of these tips can be used on many of the Fuji X-Series camera bodies.}

Now I don't know what caused it, the adapter, the lenses or my increasing the saturation on the classic chrome jpgs. I shot, but I really like this set of images. Grey dull light, but keeping the aperture wide has produced a very other worldly set of images. So an interesting and creative start to my work with the Metabones Speed Booster ULTRA. Camera was the X-T1 and because of the 'fast' lenses and adapter, everything was at ISO 200.

Fuji-Xperience: X-Pro1 ¿merece la pena HOY?

La oferta de X-Pro1 + Fujinon 18 2.0 o Fujinon 27 2.8 a un precio de 699€ hace que muchos se planteen su compra... ¿merece la pena una X-Pro1?


Para los que disfrutamos de esta cámara desde hace tiempo la pregunta se debe formular independientemente de la oferta, pero semejante combo por ese precio hace que muchos valoren su adquisición.

Es curioso que siendo mi cámara favorita, este blog no contará con una entrada/prueba sobre la misma. Creo que es el momento de, aprovechando esta segunda juventud, dar una vuelta a esta joyita
hpc's insight:

The supply of X-Pro1 + Fujinon Fujinon 27 18 2.0 or 2.8 at a price of 699 € purchase makes many arise ... worth a X-Pro1? 


For those who enjoyed this camera for some time the question should be formulated independently of the offer, but such combo for that price makes many value their acquisition. 

Curiously, still my favorite camera, this blog will not have an entry / test on it. I think it is time, taking advantage of this second youth, take a drive to this gem.

Fuji-Xperience: Como configurar la cámara para Street Photography | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

Una y mil veces he comentado en este blog y habéis leído y escuchado a todo aquel que practica la STREET PHOTOGRAPHY que esta disciplina es en esencia captar ese momento. Hay que ser rápido y centrarte en plasmar ese momento. Otras disciplinas exigen del fotógrafo paciencia, saber manejar filtros, flashes, rótulas milimétricas, robotizadas... en fin cada disciplina es de su padre y de su madre.

A thousand times I mentioned in this blog and have read and listened to anyone who practices STREET PHOTOGRAPHY this discipline is essentially capture the moment. You have to be quick and focus on capture that moment. Other disciplines require patience photographer, deal filters, flashes, millimeter ball joints, robotic ... well each discipline is his father and mother.

Here's an interesting take on the Fuji X100T from another rangefinder fan, Gregory Simpson of Ultrasomething.com. Like many, he is attracted by the promise of rangefinder sweetness in this most traditional-looking of fixed-lens shooters. But he has reservations, as do I after trying this camera for some months.
