1. Still a reason why it’s known as Fujifilm

    Comment
    The Fuji X series of camera’s were a shot in the arm for Fuji as a digital camera manufacturer, stealing inspiration from Leica in the retro-tastic X100, at a fraction of the cost and adding a host of additional features over its German doppleganger. Whilst the X series goes from...

Here’s the headline features… New X-Trans™* CMOS III sensor & X Processor Pro New Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder New 1/8000 sec.

  3. Load film into Fuji GA645i

    So I’m rusty at loading film properly into a camera, which I recently demonstrated by ruining a very nice Fuji Velvia 100f film in my Fuji GA645i. I thought I’d take it out for a spin when we visited the local Harcourt Arboretum. Isaac likes looking at the trees, just...

    Just posted a new gallery of images from Goodwood Revival this year, with a host of images that are styled in gloriously saturated colours, in a nod to both the Revival event, which celebrates all things from yesteryear, and my previous post about Kodachrome slide film. The images were taken on...
  5. Electronic rangefinder?

    The new X man on the block from Fuji is released into the urban jungle, in the guise of the X100T. T stands for tremendous, or terrific I imagine, or something mystically Japanese meaning, like flowing water, technology evolves… It’s dressed up like my original X100, but refinements are what...

    Sitting outside in dappled sunlight drinking latte and reading Amateur Photographer magazine I read in a little side article about the marketing mans’ fervour for all things retro in camera styling, it claimed the interesting, if frightening note that more images have been created in the last five years than...
  7. Fuji X-T1 Review

    by
    Comment
    The Huff, as he shall be known, is king of the “real world” reviews, not getting too bogged down in technical speak, colour charts or pixel peeping. He’s had a love/hate relationship with Fuji X cameras, liking the X100 and X100S cameras, but struggling with the responsiveness of the interchangeable...
  8. Fuji X-Pro 2

    Comment
    So, the latest from the Fuji rumour mill suggests that the boffins at Fuji are waiting for a “major breakthrough”, before releasing the update to the X-Pro 1 model. That breakthrough means they’ll likely be a wait for the new model until 2015. That breakthrough could come in the form...

    A couple of days in hospital and you miss a digital camera launch… Fujifilm unleash another camera into their X series line-up, in the name of the X-T1, which claims to offers the fastest EVF in town, and looking at the product specs, it’s an impressive beast. Is this the...

    I’m borrowing (not quite stealing…) the thunder of a post on the excellent FlixelPix website. A feature photo-essay on the truly hand-made process of creating an acoustic guitar, by Irish luthiers, Avalon Guitars. The photo here is of Ernie, one of Avalon’s expert luthiers, taken by FlixelPix on a Fuji...
