First impressions of the Fuji X-T2 | Chuq Von Rospach

First impressions of the Fuji X-T2 | Chuq Von Rospach | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

I took the X-T2 out for its first photos yesterday to a favorite spot for this kind of testing: the sewage settling ponds on Radio Road in Redwood Shores. This is a great place for this kind of work because I can guarantee both close and distant birds, birds in flight, airplanes on landing pattern to SFO, and typically, clear skies with some humidity and haze. I went in the middle of the day, or course sticking the camera with harsh shadows and glare to deal with, because I assume if a camera can do decent work in poor light, it’ll kick tail with great light. These are all screen captures from my Lightroom session as I imported and evaluated them. I’ve done nothing to the images; these are raw images straight out of the camera. The camera was overall in factory default state, using ISO 1600, Aperture mode, fixed aperture (primarily F8) and automatic white balance. I had exposure compensation set to 0 and didn’t touch it or any other in-camera adjustments during the shoot, so these images are as the camera created them with as few tweaks as I could manage, and no sharpening or lightroom adjustments. The camera was hand-held with image stabilization on......

Adobe boosts Lightroom Mobile with Raw editing for iOS | Damien Demolder

Adobe boosts Lightroom Mobile with Raw editing for iOS | Damien Demolder | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

Adobe’s Lightroom Mobile apps for Apple and Android mobile devices have both been given significant updates that allow users a much wider range of controls when editing and shooting. The company has quite different apps for the two operating systems, and while Android users have been able to edit Raw files for some time the facility is now offered to iOS users via version 2.4. Owners of Android devices can now install version 2.1 which offers what Adobe calls a ‘Pro’ shooting mode that allows much more detailed control over the way pictures are recorded. Adobe says the version 2.1 for Android has a completely new Lightroom Camera function that features a mode that gives the photographer access to shutter speed, ISO, white balance and focus so that they can all be adjusted manually. Aperture isn’t listed as few mobile cameras have significantly variable apertures. The company also says it has improved the app’s ability to export high resolution files......

Fujifilm X-T2 | James Day

Fujifilm X-T2 | James Day | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

I remember coming home most days to see my dad sitting in front of the TV, watching the bold and the beautiful while flipping through the latest issue of the B&H Catalogue. The catalogue was filled with hundreds of cameras, lenses, accessories and basically was designed to slowly convince you that you needed the latest Minolta APO-G Lenses, at least that’s what happened to my dad. I remember picking out my first camera in that catalogue. We then went to visit Photo Continental in Brisbane to sus it out. Then I had to wait most of the year before dad would finally buy it for me for Christmas. This camera was a Minolta Vectis 40. It cost around $600 at the time from memory. These days, they’re going for $23.03 on eBay. Anyway, this started my love affair for new gear. The reason I loved the Vectis 40, was because it had a new system called Advantix, which was the latest, greatest way of shooting film at the time. It gave you lots of different cropping options and made shooting film fun again. These days I’m a total gear hound. I have cupboards filled with random gear. Stuff I use regularly, stuff that’s there for a rainy day and stuff that I just should never have purchased.....

Fujifilm X-Pro2 | Ian Deming | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

If you’re anything like me, a few weeks out of the country constitutes the need for something slightly more robust than an iPhone camera. No single camera, however, ever seems to cut the cake. On an average trip, my go-to kit tends to include a DSLR, at least 3 lenses, a quick-action 35mm EOS camera, and my trusted Leica M3. Not to mention the packs of film that are a required companion. But for leisurely travel, it’s too much. Sure, having my primary “home” kit gives me the luxury of shooting exactly how I would like. But the effort and energy of carrying said kit doesn’t quite pay off. Enter Fuji. Fujifilm first introduced the X-Pro1 in 2012 as the first of its kind in mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras......

This is a detailed review of the Fuji X70 |  Fuji vs. Fuji

This is a detailed review of the Fuji X70 |  Fuji vs. Fuji | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

Excluding iterative releases of the X100, the X70 marks Fuji’s second fixed focal length “Premium Compact Camera.” It came as a bit of a surprise alongside the announcement of the X-Pro2. Fuji were likely hoping to recapture the magic of the X100 again, but with a miniaturized version, and more consumer-centric features. Overall, the feature-set is great. It’s the “miniaturization” that I think has the biggest impact on the usability of the camera, or perhaps more accurately, how the camera is used. Whether or not it succeeds will come down to your shooting style. In that respect, maybe they did recapture the original X100’s magic. Unboxing. Not much to say here. All the usual suspects are included, wait, all but one, the charger. Instead, we get a USB cable with AC-5VF AC power adapter. If you want to charge your battery, or the spare battery you’ll likely want, you’ll need to get yourself a dedicated charger, either Fuji’s own BC-65N→, or a third party option.......

6 Spectacular Portrait Lenses for The Fujifilm X-Series | Anthony Thurston

6 Spectacular Portrait Lenses for The Fujifilm X-Series | Anthony Thurston | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

Portrait Photographers all over are moving to the Fuji X series for a variety of reasons including, size/form factor, weight, and -ofcourse- Fuji’s outstanding colors and jpeg processing. So if you have or are considering a Fujifilm kit for some portrait photography what are some of the good lenses for the system? In this roundup we have 6 incredible lenses for portrait photography on the Fuji X system, plus an added bonus recommendation. So lets jump right into it, shall we? A great low-profile semi compact option for Fuji shooters, the XF 35mm F/2 WR is fast focusing, weather resistant, and offers image quality equal to – and some might say better – its F/1.4 brother in most respects. However, if you are a fan of manual or zone focusing, we would probably suggest grabbing another options instead. Possibly the fastest focusing Fuji lens right now, so if you rely on AF, this is definitely a lens to consider......

Fuji X Pro 2 | Russell Ord | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

Having only used Nikon for the last 16 years to shoot all my photography work  (surf, weddings, commercial)  its a little daunting to say the least changing over the complete camera system. I have had the Fuji X Pro 2 for a few weeks along with a small selection of lenses: Zeiss Touit 12mm F2.8 | Fuji XF 56mm F1.2 |  Fuji XF 27mm F2.8 pancake lens - its a slow process of selling off my unwanted gear and buying new bodies and glass, believe me I will only be doing this once. Before I shoot my first wedding or commercial job, I want to get completely used to the camera so I put it through its paces at my sons boxing gym "The Onshore Gym" named by the coach Nathan Brooks because if the wind is blowing in that direction its open for business which suits 99% of the boxers that train there, being surfers themselves. Low light sports photography and to be honest I didn't have any problems at all, I am more than confident with making the full transition and having a number of Fuji bodies and lenses for all my work, I am not about to go into technical jargon, the lenses (see above) are incredible, sharp, great colour, well built. Note For a detailed to review I would suggest Ken Rockwell, that goes for all brands and equipment.......

So, this happened. The Fujifilm X-T2. WOOOHOOOOO!! But before I do the new camera dance,  I must preface with: Those who know me have come to expect the type of piece I’m about to write. But for those who are new here (Hello, you!)… this first-look, hands-on review thing isn’t your typical one. It’s subjective and based upon my own personal experiences and preferences.  If you’re looking for the splitting-of-pixels, comparisons of each f-stop and all that jazz, well, suffice it to say there are PLENTY of geeky types out there offering those. Google ’em and go git ’em! I’m here to share my initial thoughts and images from this amazing camera and the technical bits that have been relevant to me in creating my work so far.......

It's Not Your Camera, It's Your Lens: How Glass Can Change Your Perspective | Keenan Hastings

It's Not Your Camera, It's Your Lens: How Glass Can Change Your Perspective | Keenan Hastings | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

Through my short time of shooting I've always been faced with the question "What camera do you shoot with?". When I had my Canon T3i, I hated this question, I felt answering it honestly would cause other photographers to think I was less of a professional. I didn't know much about the business then, I just knew my camera was one of the cheaper ones, I myself felt inadequate, and because my camera was considered a consumer option I rarely shot with it. After a few months went by I noticed the Canon 60D starting to significantly drop in price, I was able to pick one up a second hand unit for $500. The first thing I noticed was that it had the dial on the left hand side of the camera, I remember someone telling me that only the professional cameras had that option, so I was ready to take over the world at that point. At the time I didn't know this too was an APS-C sensor, I thought I was walking around with top quality, and my lens collection was A+ as well. I had the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 and the Canon 24-105, I was covered in every area and my images were great for my level of experience......

Review: Fujinon 50-140mm f2.8 real world review | Phil M

Review: Fujinon 50-140mm f2.8 real world review | Phil M | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

I had not ever considered buying a big telephoto zoom for my Fujifilm system before. To me, and i’m sure many others it kind of defeats the point of this lightweight system to then stick a huge lens on the front. I guess i’m talking from a personal photography point of view. I see the Fujifilm X system as fundamentally a light weight travel solution, where I use primes and have to carry my whole kit all day. Rather than say a commercial shoot where I might be able to work from a vehicle base or green room. So when I was asked if I would do a last minute commercial stills job for a company I had a history with in video the first thing I did was get the art director on the phone. I wanted to know if it was at all possible to use my Fuji gear for the shoot. After talking to him it was quite clear he didn’t want the look you would get from shooting wide and close, as we might do on a typical air to air shoot. He wanted a telephoto “feel” to the images.......

Fuji X100T Review | Tigz Rice

Fuji X100T Review | Tigz Rice | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

My main camera – the Canon 5D MKiii – and I have a brilliant working relationship. I’ve been shooting with the 5D series for pretty much the entirety of my professional career and it ticks all the boxes. Except, that is, for when it comes to taking a camera out for those ‘just in case’ days. Or the ‘please bring your camera to the family wedding’ days… I could go on but I’m sure you get the drift. Whilst I have been known to take the Canon 5D MKiii with me for non-work purposes, its size and weight (even with a nifty fifty) is often a deterrent and I end up relying on my iPhone, despite knowing that I’ll regret that decision afterwards. For a long time, I have felt a disconnect between the high production value of the images I produce for clients and the extremely low quality images that I document my own memories with. With this in mind, I’ve been on the hunt for a camera to fill the gap between my business and personal photography. The aim was to find something handbag friendly that could also live up to the expectations of a professional photographer when needed......

Fujifilm X-Pro2 review: Pro perfection? | Pocket-lint

Fujifilm X-Pro2 review: Pro perfection? | Pocket-lint | Fujifilm x-series | Scoop.it

When the Fujifilm X-Pro1 burst onto the camera scene its retro digital rangefinder style was like a pleasurable punch to the face; the kind of kipper-slap that left us, and many, a bit tingly around the chops and hungry for more. No camera maker had dared make something so delightfully of the past, yet so very of the moment, if not the future - and it's since inspired Nikon and other major makers to take similar design steps with some models. Where the X-Pro1 succeeded its four-year-follow-up, the X-Pro2, looks to tinker and tweak that pro-spec concept into an even more refined camera. But it's arguably not redefined, which raises the question - especially with all manner of competition progressing in the compact system camera market - as to whether that's enough? ......
