Fuji X-Files: Ultra Wide Angle Fisheye Lens on the Fuji X-Pro 1 - Samyang 8mm f2.8 XF

Fuji X-Files: Ultra Wide Angle Fisheye Lens on the Fuji X-Pro 1 - Samyang 8mm f2.8 XF | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

APS-C cameras used to have a few drawbacks compared to full frame cameras:

1. The smaller sensor produced noisier photos at high ISO and lacked dynamic range.

2. It is more difficult to produce a photo with shallow depth of field.

3. Due to the crop factor it was difficult to get a good quality ultra wide angle lens with a larger field of view than 120°

The introduction of the Fuji X-Pro 1 solved No. 1. for me right away. And while No. 2 is based on a law of optics I have found my way of dealing with it by changing my approach on taking those kind of images.

Focus 2013 Interview With Fujifilm | Silver XF Lenses? New Firmware? Split Image and Focus Peaking | Adam J Piper


I made my way to the Fujifilm Stand in this years Focus on Imaging show, Birmingham UK, for an exclusive interview. Adam, one of the Fuji reps, demonstrates Digital Split Image focussing, and Focus Peaking on the new X100s, and answers a few questions about the possibility of silver XF lenses, release dates, and future firmware updates for the X-Pro1 for auto ISO and Focus Peaking. I also take a closer look at the upcoming lenses.

The SOUNDIMAGEPLUS blog: The Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 Zoom - wide open

No decent weather in sight, so I decided to do some test shots with the Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 Zoom on my newly acquired X-E1. Pretty murky outside so I thought why not give the maximum aperture a try out? So moving from f/2.8 at the wide end to f/4 at the long end I shot a few tests.

A break was needed or least that is how I thought of it.  Perhaps a little history first.  My journey in photography began at the age of 12.  A few years went by using my father’s Retina IIa.   At first I started photographing races at Laguna Seca race track, then some work on the high school newspaper.  After a stint in the Army, I became much more interested and involved in the craft.  Which resulted in building my own darkroom and buying my first Nikon SLR camera system in 1973.A break was needed or least that is how I thought of it.  Perhaps a little history first.  My journey in photography began at the age of 12.  A few years went by using my father’s Retina IIa.   At first I started photographing races at Laguna Seca race track, then some work on the high school newspaper.  After a stint in the Army, I became much more interested and involved in the craft.  Which resulted in building my own darkroom and buying my first Nikon SLR camera system in 1973.

The SOUNDIMAGEPLUS blog: Finally came to a decision

...

This is the third year running I've been to focus on imaging, been somewhat unimpressed by the Fuji camera I went to see and then bought it. Nothing if not consistently inconsistent.  And yes I'm not impressed by the body of the X-E1 in terms of how it is often described as being metallic and old-school, but I'm beginning to think that when it comes to these cameras I just impulsively feel the need to have a go at them! It did however strike me, in a rare moment of common sense, that making a decision on a camera that has probably been abused by photographers all across the world might have been somewhat hasty. And the arrival of my X-E1 yesterday confirmed that. It may not be as well put together as the Olympus OM-D, but in terms of everything else its actually pretty good...

Dare to see!: Interior shots with the XF 14mm

Dare to see!: Interior shots with the XF 14mm | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it

During our recent family mini-trip to Granada, we stayed at the picturesque Hotel Palacio De Santa Inés, in the Unesco World Heritage Albaicín district. Its 35 rooms are located in two small 16th century Mudejar buildings, restructured and renovated in 1995 and 2001 respectively. The hotel fascinates by its courtyard beauty because of its fountain, columns, balustrades and in particular, of Renaissance frescos painted by two of Rafael’s disciples.

What better setting can you imagine to learn more about how well the Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 lens handles interior and architectural shots?

Fuji X100s first look video and low light samples | Steve Huff | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it


Hot on the heels of my Leica M review is the new Fuji X100s (The S must stand for Speedy) which Fuji has promised to be much faster in AF and overall use and let me tell you. They did not lie! The Fuji X100s seems to be an all new speed demon when it comes to auto focus, processing, menu browsing, write times and the body and buttons have stayed exactly the same, as has the menu look/layout. ...

Much more to come in about 7-10 days! ....

Even though the X100S has pretty much all of the same quirks as the X100, listed over here …Ohhh yesss, without a doubt is it worth the upgrade.

If the X100S doesn’t receive the gold award over at DPReview, it has to be for some technical reason which I probably wouldn’t care about. Of course, this is a highly personal opinion, from having used the X100 for two years while being very happy with it, despite its shortcomings.

This is the upgrade I have been waiting for. Hat off to Fuji.

Fujifilm X-E1 Review | Tim Bray

Fujifilm X-E1 Review | Tim Bray | Fujifilm X Series APS C sensor camera | Scoop.it


What happened was, this month includes trips to Tokyo and the Big Island. And lately I’ve been reading about cameras full of shiny new ideas. So I decided to indulge myself; here are way too many words about the state of cameras in general and in particular the one I bought. SLRs are fat-bodied because you need a big glass prism to bend the light from the lens to the viewfinder. If you lose the prism, you free camera designers from a bunch of constraints. Most obviously, you can have smaller thinner bodies that are friendlier to hand and handbag.....

The SOUNDIMAGEPLUS blog: Fuji X-E1 - First impressions

As you can see the Fuji X-E1 is an uncluttered camera. Next to the OM-D its actually quite minimalist. The back is a little more populated, but still pretty functional. In the picture above it looks around the same size as the OM-D, but in reality its a different feeling camera. Much more rectangular and basic. It reminds me in many ways of the Panasonic L1 / Leica Digilux 3 . The brick like 4/3 cameras from a few years ago....
