Chasing the Milky Way - Star Photography for Fuji X Shooters

Chasing the Milky Way - Star Photography for Fuji X Shooters | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
After the above image of the Milky Way over Crater Lake in Oregon was featured recently by Fuji X Magazine, I received a number of email enquiries on how to capture these type of pictures. I decided to write a quick star photography guide specifically aimed at fellow Fuji X shooters. This type of photography appears very complex and difficult but once you actually work through the process a couple of times it becomes fairly easy…provided a few simple guidelines are followed. A successful Milky Way photo requires the right equipment, a bit of research and a sprinkle of luck from Mother Nature.

MACLEAN PHOTOGRAPHIC: REVIEW: Fuji X-T1's New Electronic Shutter

A lot has been written about the V3.0 Firmware update for the X-T1 that was made available for free by Fujifilm on the 18th December, so much so I am not going to do a blow by blow report on each change that Fujifilm introduced for the camera that was launched at the start of 2014.  I will say that the update has introduced some interesting additions and some that are actually useful.

Bridging the Video-Stills Gap with the Sony A7s & Fujifilm X-T1: An Interview with Levy Moroshan | MirrorLessons - The Best Mirrorless Camera Reviews

Bridging the Video-Stills Gap with the Sony A7s & Fujifilm X-T1: An Interview with Levy Moroshan | MirrorLessons - The Best Mirrorless Camera Reviews | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

Welcome to our series of 100 interviews we will be holding with professional photographers who use mirrorless cameras for work! “Switching to a smaller and lighter system” has become somewhat of a buzz phrase as of late, but many working photographers take this philosophy seriously. From medical reasons such as resolving back and shoulder pain to the simple realisation that bigger does not mean better, photographers are turning to mirrorless systems now more than ever before.

This week’s interview is with Levy Moroshan, a photographer who has worked in the film, TV and entertainment industry for over ten years. He is well-known for his portrait, headshot, commercial and product photography, and is also an accomplished videographer.

Обзор Fujifilm X100T: очень красивая японская камера / Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru

Обзор Fujifilm X100T: очень красивая японская камера / Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

Fujifilm продолжает развивать свою первую камеру из ныне уже широкой линейки X. X100, впервые анонсированная более четырех лет назад, стала ярким представителем плеяды компактных камер с крупной матрицей, но с самого начала держалась особняком, намекая на свой особый статус, сравнимый разве что с камерами Leica. Объектив с фиксированным фокусным расстоянием, ретро-дизайн, обилие аналоговых органов управления… да, теперь на этом поле уже немало игроков, кто-то как Panasonic со своей LX100, предлагает и варианты с зум-объективами, но Fujifilm невозмутимо гнет свою линию. Третье поколение камеры, X100T, получило новый фирменный фетиш - электронный дальномер, помогающий с ручной фокусировкой. Уникальный статус родоначальницы X-серии сохраняется.

Comprehensive review


Google translate:

Fujifilm continues to develop his first camera from the now wide range X. X100 , first announced more than four years ago, has become a brilliant representative of a galaxy of a compact camera with a large matrix, but from the outset kept to himself, alluding to its special status, comparable only to that of the cameras Leica. Lens with a fixed focal length lens, retro design, plenty of analog controls ... yes, now in this field has a lot of players, someone like Panasonic with its LX100 , offers and options with zoom lenses, but Fujifilm calmly bends the line. The third generation of cameras, X100T, received brand new fetish - electronic range finder to help with manual focus. The unique status of the X-series ancestors preserved.

Review: Fujifilm X100T

Review: Fujifilm X100T | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

The Fujifilm X100 was the iconic camera started it all for Fujifilm’s X-series. Two years later the Japanese camera company came out with the Fujifilm X100S with improved autofocus and a second-generation X-Trans sensor making it just a generally faster operating camera.

Now the Fujifilm X100T marks the third entry of the series. It has a long list of smaller improvements including upgrades to the EVF, a bigger and higher-resolution rear LCD, better controls and menus, and an electronic shutter. But at the end of the day the tweaks Fujifilm has made to the sensors makes this the best premium compact camera the company has ever produced while still somehow leaving us hungry for more innovation.

Fuji X100T: User Opinion, Custom Settings & Q Menu

Fuji X100T: User Opinion, Custom Settings & Q Menu | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
I have always thought the Fuji X100 series of camera looked like a very interesting concept in the way that they take the photographer back to a fixed lens, which aids compositional and creative skills, simple, effective, manual controls, but packed with some exciting and useful modern tech.  I nearly took the jump with the X100S but held off.  When the X100T came along it seemed to have evolved to the point where it was hard to imagine the camera getting much better without some major advances in sensor technology.  In short it was clearly a mature product developed from user feedback on the hard controls and firmware.  Seeing the X100T and reading up on the technical side convinced me it was an interesting buy.  Owing to the use I imagined for this camera, a leather case seemed like a good idea and my local dealer had a brown one on offer, so I went for that too.  Its a beautiful camera and the case complements it wonderfully (below image shows only half the case, which includes a nice matching strap).  The case is snug and feels very well made.  It has an access flap to allow changes of battery and memory card without having to remove the case and the upper case clips on with poppers to completely enclose the camera.

56mm ƒ/1.2 vs. APD | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
The release of the FUJINON XF 56mm ƒ/1.2 APD marked what the first truly exotic lens release from Fuji for their interchangeable X-Series cameras. It is niche in everything from it’s intended use to how it is marketed to it’s price point.
If you would like to purchase either of these lenses, or anything else for that matter, please consider using one of the affiliate links below. The price is the same for you, but a small percentage of the purchase price goes to me, which really helps keep this site going. Thank you!

My fourth year with Fuji and the X-T1 - STOCKOGRAFIE

My fourth year with Fuji and the X-T1 - STOCKOGRAFIE | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
Yes you read correctly. This has been my fourth year with a Fujifilm camera. It all started off with the X100 in 2011, followed by the X-Pro1 and the XF35 1.4 which I exchanged for the more compact X-E1 and some great Fuji lenses. Then, in February of this year I sold the X-E1 in exchange for the X-T1. As soon as that was announced I had to have it. A dream camera which I still love to use.

At the beginning of this year I was not sure what would happen. I thought it would be a pretty boring year in terms of my photography and did not expect much at all. It all came very different.

Broken – Jonesblog | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
Berlin is one of my favorite cities on the planet. Yet it does have its ills. For such a major, advanced metropolitan city, there is quite a bit of vandalism and graffiti. These images were made in a brand new mixed use development where someone had attempted to break in some very expensive windows. To what end, I don’t know as there was nothing in the shops. It was clear that someone had simply walked around the empty shop attempting to break the windows.

Winter Wonderland - Fujifilm X100T and TCL-X100 teleconversion lens

Winter Wonderland - Fujifilm X100T and TCL-X100 teleconversion lens | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it
Okay, I had my doubts about this one. The TCL-X100 teleconversion lens which is turning your 23mm f/2,0 lens on your Fujifilm X100/S or T model into a 33mm f/2.0, or when talking in full frame terms, the X100 /s/t 35 mm lens into a 50mm lens. 

Is it sharp enough? Well, oh yes - and if you are pixel peeping you will be happy from f/4 to f/16 with the converter. But - stop pixel peeping. It doesn't do you anything good. I admit - I do it sometimes. But since I already had the X100T I thought that I might as well try the teleconverter out.
