Fujifilm X-T1 Hands-on Review | Kai Wong for DigitalRev TV


We take a look at Fujifilm's latest X-series camera - the X-T1. It's an eagerly anticipated mirrorless camera but is it as good as people expect it to be or has it fallen short of the mark? Kai takes it out on the streets for a test......

Fuji vs Nashville…… | Bill Fortney

Fuji vs Nashville…… | Bill Fortney | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

’ve been in Nashville, Tennessee all week with our Third Annual Nashville/Ricky Skaggs Americana Workshop.  Country Music/Bluegrass Legend (14 rimes Grammy Winner!) Ricky Skaggs is also an accomplished photographer and good friend and he and I, plus Jim Begley and John “Snake” Barrett, and Nick Coury, run this annual workshop during Nashville’s Bluegrass Month.  While we have been shooting the many fantastic locations around Nashville, I’ve been giving the X-System lenses a workout and thought I might share some of the images from this weeks shoot! Tonight the entire group will go to Ricky and Kentucky Thunders concert at the Historic Ryman Theatre, images from that tomorrow! At Marathon Motorworks we always shoot the decorative tool door at the Motor works offices. Fuji X-T1 with the 16-55......

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR | Jordan Steele

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR | Jordan Steele | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

Fuji’s hard work at fleshing out their X series lineup continues at a frantic pace.  Today I review the brand new XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR, a lens that has the field of view of the classic 135mm long-portrait lens that has been a staple of many systems over the years. The 90mm f/2 completes Fuji’s standard prime kit, and has been highly anticipated.  Early reports point to this lens being simply stunning, so I was eager to get my hands on it.  Let’s dive in. If you already own a few Fuji X-series prime lenses, then you have a good idea of the construction of the 90mm f/2.  The 90mm f/2 has an all-metal exterior construction with a broad focus ring and a dedicated aperture ring.  The lens is solidly constructed with no creaks or wobbles and feels like a very high-end piece of kit.......

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR | Jordan Steele

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR | Jordan Steele | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

The Fuji 16mm f/1.4 R WR represents the latest fast prime lens to be added to the Fujifilm X lineup. There are now four prime lenses that feature apertures f/1.4 or faster spanning from super wide to short telephoto. Unlike the other Fuji X primes, the 16mm f/1.4 is the first weathersealed prime lens in the Fuji lineup, and it fills the niche for a fast super-wide lens.  The 16mm f/1.4 has the same field of view as a 24mm lens on a full frame camera, and so is useful for a very wide range of applications, from landscape and architecture to environmental portraiture.  Can this lens hold its own with the other excellent Fuji primes? ......

An "All-Day-Lens" - My experience with the XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR | Sven Schroeder

An "All-Day-Lens" - My experience with the XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR | Sven Schroeder | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

I want to thank everyone for the response to my last blogpost!


Some of you asked, if I could write down my opinion for using the Fuji XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR as a "Every-Day-Lens". So I own the lens for about 2 weeks now and I am really impressed with it. Before I go deeper into the "Review" I must say that this is my own opinion. This blogpost is also not a technical type of review as you all may find many of those on the internet........

Fujifilm's 90mm Makes a Colorful Splash on the Set of Indian Summers 2 | Matt Brandon

Fujifilm's 90mm Makes a Colorful Splash on the Set of Indian Summers 2 | Matt Brandon | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

Fujifilm has a history of producing amazingly sharp prime lenses in their lens lineup. The latest is the newly announced Fujinon 90mm f/2. Like all of my lens reviews, I will not pretend to know more than I do. No focus charts or color bars. I wouldn’t know what to do with them once I photographed them. Frankly, pixel peeping is all fine and dandy, but the real question is how does the lense perform. But there’s a catch: I was given a “pre-production” lens. To be fair, this limits what I can say. Here is how I am going to address this dilemma. I can comment on the looks, the construction and the focal length and hopefully help you decide if you really need this lens. So to put this lens through its paces I brought it to the set of Indian Summers, season 2, the British (Channel 4) period-drama filmed here in Penang, Malaysia. You may recall I was the Still Photographer for the series last year and I’m back for the first block this year. Sadly, with my return to the USA this summer I’ll miss the final two blocks of shooting........

Cuba with X-Photographer Chris Upton

Cuba with X-Photographer Chris Upton | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

Cuba, the largest island in the Caribbean is a stunning and diverse location. The noise, hustle and bustle of Havana, teeming with brightly coloured vintage American cars contrasts with the quiet verdant plantations and gorgeous beaches. The wonderful Spanish architecture is at odds with the decaying beauty of some of its poorer areas. Cuba has had a turbulent history from Spanish colonial rule and the slave trade to Batista’s dictatorship and overthrow by Fidel Castro and it’s subsequent economic struggle. Throughout this it’s culture, music and arts have remained as colourful and vibrant as ever. I have recently returned from a trip visiting Havana, the plantations in the west around Vinales and the towns of Cienfuegos and Trinidad on the south of the island........

Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR | Test  | Patrice Michellon | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

Before you read further I would like to point out a few things. My report will not contain any detailed technical analysis nor graphics to study. For this I would suggest you visit specialised websites like DP Review. Also you will not find any street photography pictures as I tested the lens for landscapes mainly. I rarely shoot in "documentary" mode and if I do so my go to camera remains the X100T. Thanks to Fujifilm France I was able to use the lens for an entire week on the French Atlantic coast (Royan). I think both the camera body and the lens tasted a bit of everything: rain, wind, sand and sometimes sun. Therefore the lens' WR label (for Weather Resistant) was more than welcome. With both the X-T1 and the XF 16mm I could shoot outdoor everyday without having to worry about the weather conditions. Like all X-Premium lenses, the XF 16mm benefits from a superb all-metal construction and finish. The focusing ring is extremely smooth and street photographers will love the addition of a depth of field scale. If you already use the XF 23mm then you will fill like home with its little brother. Two things immediately apparent are the size and weight of the lens. Both are specific and probably the "raison d'être" of Fujifilm's X series but it became even more obvious once I put back the XF 16-55mm zoom on my X-T1. Suddenly the zoom felt big and very heavy.......

My affair with Fuji... | Bill Gekas

My affair with Fuji... | Bill Gekas | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

As most people know I've been shooting with the Pentax system since I started photography when I was shooting film using a Pentax ME-Super and K1000 bodies which I still have in some cupboard somewhere. I never considered switching systems as the Pentax system was always adequate for what I was doing and once they brought out their digital bodies I continued with their digital cameras as I could use my older manual focus prime lenses on their latest bodies. By that time I also had invested enough into the system that switching to any other system would have been a costly exercise with no real gain or benefit with my work so i've been happily doing what I do with the system, but after almost 20 years of shooting with Pentax i'm now at a crossroads.....

XF16mm F1.4 Initial Reactions | Ben Cherry

XF16mm F1.4 Initial Reactions | Ben Cherry | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

I have been using a prototype of this lovely lens for just over a month now and I have to say I have rather fallen for it. This is a problem as I already have and love the XF10-24mm! When I first received it, I wasn’t entirely sure what I would use it to photograph, but it quickly became apparent that this lens, despite being a relatively large prime, is extremely flexible. Similar to the XF23mm F1.4, this lens is slightly larger, I suspect this is partly due to the inclusion of weather resistant sealing (WR) which I am very happy about. Aimed at a variety of photographers, many of which will be working outside, the added reassurance of WR is very welcome when combined with the X-T1 which is also WR (not that I have actually had any issues with a non-WR lens or body before while in the field). Note that the filter size is 67mm, compared to 62mm for the XF23mm and XF56mm lenses. This is slightly annoying as it would be nice to only have one set of thread filters to carry around for this trio. But I prefer this slight problem to not having WR........

Fujifilm X100S Travel Photography Review | Vincent Opoku

Fujifilm X100S Travel Photography Review | Vincent Opoku | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it
Travelling will always be part of who I am as a person and also part of my photography brand. The people I meet, the stories we exchange, the food and drinks. The cultural experience, seeing things in a different perspective, all this and more helps me grow and develop as a person and as a photographer. But I don’t travel for the sake of photography, I travel for the experience. The images I create along the way is a natural by-product of me being a photographer. Out of a 14-day trip, I probably spend 2 days where I will go out to actively shoot, the other days I will have a camera in a messenger bag along with other items (books etc), and only reach for the camera if I see something that I think is worth capturing. I spent 6 days in Barcelona last summer and I didn’t even bother to take my camera out the during my time there, I just wanted to enjoy where I was. When I travel I tend to just go with the flow, I even book one-way ticket sometimes. I end up moving around a lot between various cities and countries on a single trip. So it is vital that my luggage is as light as possible. My Fujifilm X100S Travel Photography Review : I have visited 9 countries in the last 20 months or so and explored towns and cities like Chefchaouen (pronounced, Shafshawan – The Blue Pearl), Paris, NYC, Seville, San Luca De Barrameda, Tuscany and Lusaka, to name a few. My X100S has been with me to everyone single one of them, as a result I think I have gotten to know it well enough to share my thoughts and findings on this little gem.........

Street photography with the Fuji X100T | William Lonsdale

Street photography with the Fuji X100T | William Lonsdale | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

Opinions on what is real street photography are wide and varied ranging from they can only be of people, only be candid, only using prime lenses, only without a flash. It's such a bone of contention but you get the idea. Myself, I'll simply say that if your outdoors on a street (or built up area) and you've taken a photo I'm happy to let it slide. The thing is, photography is a subjective area and no matter what you're discussing there will always be a dozen opinions. I'm not even going to approach the question of; Is photography an art form? (many believe it's not). So now I've got that out of the way, I went out into one of the local towns with my Fuji X100T to do some street photography. I had a remit, which was 'Dark & Gloomy' and hit the streets. I got some average sort of images but it wasn't about getting that elusive 'the image' (although I'd have been pleased if that had happened) it was about getting out there with camera in hand, exploring and capturing something........

Fujifilm X-T10 Review | PhotographyBLOG

Fujifilm X-T10 Review | PhotographyBLOG | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

The Fujifilm X-T10 is a new mid-range compact system camera. Smaller, lighter and cheaper than the flagship X-T1 model, the X-T10 features a new AF system that is better at capturing moving subjects. In addition to Fujifilm’s conventional 49-point AF mode for high speed and precision focusing, the X-T10 offers new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes that track subject movement across a larger 77-point area. Other key features include a 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, Fujifilm’s EXR Processor II, a Lens Modulation Optimiser which automatically corrects diffraction blur, a built-in pop-up flash, a 2.36m dot resolution OLED electronic viewfinder with a lag-time of just 0.005 sec, a tilting 3-inch 920k-dot LCD screen, 8fps burst shooting, an expandable sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200, wi-fi connectivity, interval timer shooting, in-camera raw conversion, a range of film simulation modes, multiple exposure and panoramic shooting modes, Digital Split Image and Focus Peaking for easier manual focusing, Full HD video recording capabilities at up to 60fps, an ultra-fast electronic shutter that is capable of exposures up to 1/32000sec, Natural Live View function that removes the image quality settings from the viewfinder image while shooting, a dedicated Auto Mode Switch Lever, a traditional threaded cable release, and a Classic Chrome film simulation mode.......

Noise for Headroom: Fuji's X-Trans Sensor | Kevin Purcell

Noise for Headroom: Fuji's X-Trans Sensor | Kevin Purcell | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

I raise the now traditional issue that "the X-Trans sensor is a Sony sensor." And an "old" Sony sensor, too. It's the same one as in the Nikon Coolpix A, D7000, D5100, Ricoh GR, Pentax K-01 and many more 16-megapixel APS-C cameras, including some of Sony's. It's still a very good sensor. Has low read noise and high quantum efficiency; but that's not Fuji magic. It just has a custom color filter array specified by Fuji. The X-Trans color filter array actually reduces acuity. Yes, really it does! So, as many people have found out, it's not great for images with lots of very fine repetitive detail (such as leaves in landscapes). Take a look at the dpreview studio comparison (the playing card) for a Fuji 16-MP X-Trans camera and an equivalent 16-MP Bayer-array camera (e.g. the D7000 and the K-01). I do wonder if some people like this because it makes them think it looks more "film like." They could have left the optical low-pass filter (OLPF) in place and still got the same effect.......

My 2.5 Years With Fujifilm X-Series Cameras And Lenses | Bradley Hanson

My 2.5 Years With Fujifilm X-Series Cameras And Lenses | Bradley Hanson | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

This review is 2.5 years in coming, and isn't really a review but rather a personal history of why the Fujifilm X-Series, specifically the X-Pro1 and X100S, is a perfect fit for me: the cameras I had been waiting for. I am a very technical and precise person, but this is not a technical review. These cameras have been out for years and there are much better reviews, including one by my friend Vincent Opoku (link below). I wanted to write something initially because using these cameras was relatively revolutionary for me, but I also wanted to let the beer goggles dissipate and write logically and dispassionately about the experience so those considering the system could get a realistic understanding of what to expect without all the usual superlatives that come from excitement, and also to spare readers the agony of run on sentences like the one you are enduring now.....

Nikon D7200 vs Fuji X-T1 – Differences, Cons & Pros | Cameradebate

Nikon D7200 vs Fuji X-T1 – Differences, Cons & Pros | Cameradebate | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

In this article I’ll compare the Nikon D7200 versus Fujifilm X-T1. The first is mid-range digital SLR, the second is a high-end mirrorless camera.If you are starting from scratch without any lenses, it might make the decision harder. Fujifilm has proven itself as a very strong competitor in the interchangeable lens camera market, although criticized for its expensive Fujinon lenses. The Nikon on the other hand has a wider selection of affordable lenses, and the D7200 offers a great value in comparison. That said, in order to make a smart buying decision, you need to fully understand what each camera has to offer over the other camera. In this article we’ll going to do just that. I will start with a  short introduction to the D7200, which is the camera that we compare the X-T1 against. After that intro section, we’ll move to the comparison, where you’ll get to see how the two cameras differ......

XF16mm. a  WIDER  perspective. | Ivan Joshua Loh | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

The super fast Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 has always been the default lens on any X-series camera that I bring along for my daily domestic photography mission. Like my endless trip to the supermarket, fetching my cheeky daughter from school or a trip to the lush Singapore Botanical Garden with my family. I love the XF 23mm because its a lens that fulfilled many of my needs in 1 lens. Not all but some. Its has quite a decent wide angle, AF is fast and the F1.4 glass is more then great! Today I decided to widen my perspective by mounting the swanky new pre-production XF 16mm lens. It’s also a super fast F1.4 lens. Is it the new must have for X-series fujinistas? Its a 24mm in 35mm format equivalent. Let me take you through the paces and see if this is another a great Fujinon lens or its a let down? .....

Shooting weddings, street, family…anything…. with the Fuji X100s, ….the camera with soul! | Greg Coltman | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

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.. One thing I have learnt is that when people spend a fortune on gear they always see the best in it. It’s quite rare that someone shells out a grand on equipment then bemoans its capabilities. They want to report that the camera / car / bike etc that they have bought is the best….perhaps it’s a perceived fear that if they were to negatively report on the equipment, it calls their judgement into question… Photographers are a funny bunch lol. So, after seeing all the positives the ONLY way I could get to the truth was to buy the thing and use it. I have no relationship with Fuji and this is the first Fuji camera I have owned (shot Minolta, canon, yashica, Olympus ) I’m NOT going to talk about tech specs. These are well documented all over the interwebby… Im NOT going to talk about styling…Just take a look at it…its cooler than a cucumber on an iceberg. What I am going to talk about, briefly, is how it shoots, how it makes me shoot and how it feels to shoot….

Fuji XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR |Part I | Leigh Miller

Fuji XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR |Part I | Leigh Miller | Photography with the Fuji X series | Scoop.it

I've had a sample of the Fuji XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR for a few days now but unfortunately our Toronto weather hasn't been playing ball. Not that I want to be complaining too much though, my cousin in Buffalo tells me that they had to shovel her roof on at least two occasions over the past week.  With this new lens Fuji now has a telephoto zoom to suit the three price ranges, Professional, Enthusiast and Hobbyist. Though those strict distinctions are a bit more blurry these days. My first foray into Fuji zooms came in the form of the XF55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS which I took with me to Belize this past year. With an effective focal range of 82-300mm (in 35mm DSLR terms) it put me right in the outer rim of a very handy wildlife/nature lens. I say outer rim because a true wildlife lens begins somewhere from 300mm into the 600mm range. Wild animals don't like us very much except the ones that wouldn't mind adding the occasional human being to their dinner menu.....
