Fujifilm FinePix X100 First Look Preview - Digital Photography Review

Fujifilm FinePix X100 First Look Preview - Digital Photography Review | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it
Just Posted: Fujifilm X100 first look. In amongst a flurry of of major camera announcements at Photokina 2010, one model stole the show - Fujifilm's retro-looking, large sensor, fixed lens compact: the X100. With its APS-C CMOS sensor and fast 23mm F2 lens giving a classic 35mm equivalent moderate wideangle view, this rangefinder-styled camera has traditional control dials plus an innovative 'hybrid' viewfinder that combines a large, bright optical finder with a high-resolution electronic display. We've been itching to get our hands on the X100 ever since it was announced, and Fujifilm has kindly lent us a prototype model for a first look. Click through to read more.

Are your pictures out of focus?

Are your pictures out of focus? | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it
One of the questions I get asked the most is : Why are my pictures not sharp?

Sometimes, the question is asked by budding photographers that have bad habits, like using flimsy tripods and no mirror up mode in their SLR's. Other times, however, the question comes from experienced photographers that have excellent technique and very good equipment.

Most photographers assume that the manual focus and the autofocus systems in their cameras, as well as the lenses, work to perfection, so the problem should lie somewhere else.

Unfortunately, this is not the case. It turns out that many camera systems can be out of focus at the sensor with the concurrent deterioration in image sharpness.
