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

My fourth year with Fuji and the X-T1 |  STOCKOGRAFIE | Fuji X cameras | 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. Nothing happened much until May when my wife and I headed to Egypt for a snorkeling vacation in Marsa Alam. Especially for this holiday I purchased a Fujifilm XP60 underwater camera as I knew I would be snorkeling quite a bit. It was worth every penny.......

Why Choose a Holga? Part III – Film to Book — John Stanmeyer

Why Choose a Holga? Part III – Film to Book — John Stanmeyer | Fuji X cameras | Scoop.it

Digital cameras took away the mystery — and at times, suspense — of photography. The pensive wait for hours or days thereafter for the film to be developed has been replaced with instant gratification at a press of the button.

Film and a Holga simply does not work that way, taking you back in time (not that long ago) when thought and patients reigned.

Ten tips for your Fuji X-T1 | Dave Young

Ten tips for your Fuji X-T1 | Dave Young | Fuji X cameras | Scoop.it

Fuji’s top of the range flagship body, the XT1 has been widely acclaimed as a showstopper and for good reason. With many professionals moving over from their DSLR’s to a smaller, lighter body the Fuji XT1 is the perfect option retaining the image quality required whilst offering a significant weight saving over a professionals current kit bag. Here’s ten tips for your Fuji XT1 to get you started if you’re just dipping your toe into XT1 ownership. They’re not specific for the set up of the camera, just simply a list of small tips that maybe of use I’ve cultivated having used mine for the past couple of months or so........

A Walk in Istanbul from the Grand Bazaar to Fatih Mosque | Chris Pattison

A Walk in Istanbul from the Grand Bazaar to Fatih Mosque | Chris Pattison | Fuji X cameras | Scoop.it

If you are visiting a new place on a short break, and have an aversion to organised tours (as most street photographers surely have) it is a very good idea to do some research before you go. Skim through a decent travel guide to get an idea of where you want to go. If you are visiting a huge metropolis like Istanbul, and only have 3 days like I did, you could zone in on three areas you find of interest and dedicate one day to each of them. And so it came to pass on the first full day in Istanbul, my mate Colin and I began to cover the ground we had roughly mapped out a couple of weeks before back home. Starting from our hotel, our intent was to visit the Grand Bazaar (Kapalı Çarşı) first of all and then make our way north-west towards Fatih Mosque (Fatih Camii), taking in the sights and sounds along the way, of which there are many. The Grand Bazaar is rightly a major tourist attraction; an ancient proto-shopping mall of some 66 streets and four thousand shops. It’s definitely pleasurable exploring the bazaar, but from a street photographer’s perspective, there are better hunting grounds. The place has been so well-trodden by travellers wielding cameras that many of the shops now display signs asking you not to take photographs of their wares. That’s a bit like a herd of wildebeest planting a placard in the ground for lions to read saying, “We know what you are up to, but please don’t bother. We are tired of it and we aren’t actually that tasty.” .......

Holga D - Holga Digtal Camera

Holga D - Holga Digtal Camera | Fuji X cameras | Scoop.it

Even though it's a digital camera, it retains the qualities and simplicity of the original Holga camera and brings back the joy and delayed gratification associated with good old analog photography. For those who are not aware of Holga,

it is an inexpensive, medium format 120 film toy camera, known for its whimsical and surreal images.

REVIEW: Fuji X-T1's New Electronic Shutter | Jeff Carter

REVIEW: Fuji X-T1's New Electronic Shutter |  Jeff Carter | Fuji X cameras | Scoop.it

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. The one change that I was very interested in was the electronic shutter that allows shutter speeds up to 1/32000th second, a lot faster than the existing 1/4000th second using the mechanical shutter.  Because I love using the fast prime lenses (35mm f1.4 and 56mm f1.2) I, like many other Fuji photographers either had to step the aperture down in bright conditions (negating the main reason for owning these lenses) or fit an ND filter, which I do have for both these fast lenses.  Allowing the camera to shoot at 1/32000 means that I don't have to do either of these things in the future......

Review: Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens (X Mount) | Kevin Lee

Review: Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens (X Mount) | Kevin Lee | Fuji X cameras | Scoop.it

Over the last few years Fujifilm has been filling out its X-series lens line up with fast primes. However, aside from a surprisingly good XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 kit lens, zoom lenses have been rather ignored until now. 2014 has been the year of the Fujifilm zoom lens between the Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f4 plus two of the X-series’ first telephoto zoom lenses, the XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 and XF 50-140mm f2.8. Now the Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens caps off the year as an extremely flexible superzoom lens with weather sealing to boot. It has the potential to be a great all-round lens for everyday shooting, traveling, and event photography. However, as with all superzoom lenses I’m going to examine whether the Fujifilm 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 has sacrificed any image quality for flexibility......
