Hello all… We read so much about the various X-Trans sensor cams now-a-days, in particular, countless postings on the wonders of the X-T1. And there’s certainly nothing wrong with that. To preface my remarks, I use quite a variety of cameras (so little time, so many toys…), and as a result, I have the luxury and opportunity to get to know quite a few cameras from various brands. On the Fuji side of the house I have the X-E1, X-A1, X-S1, X-10, X-20, and HS 50 EXR. For me – regardless of camera ...

It was back in 2007 when I bought a Canon PowerShot. Somehow, I became more a more interested in manually adjusting the photography settings of the camera and seeing how small changes would have an impact on the final product. I guess that was when my enthusiasm for photography eventually was born. I have never been a professional photographer nor want to become one. I just like taking some shots every now and then while exploring places. But that enthusiasm grew and this year I decided to ...

The valuable comments from fellow Fujifilm forum members on the discussion http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54088184 gave me an (excellent) idea to do some experimenting with my recently acquired gear: the Metabones Speed Booster FD-FX and my beloved old terribly inexpensive FD 50mm/f1.8, which gave me and millions of other photographers a lot of fun for decades. For this experiment I assumed, what if I had only this lens along with the speed booster, a regular FD-FX adapter and the X-A1? ...

Today I received my FD 15mm/f2.8 fisheye lens, which I bought off ebay for 250 Euros. The lens looks stunning on my Fujifilm X-A1. It is terribly easy to focus, and image quality is stunning. I am still waiting for my Metabones FD-FX speedbooster, in a hope that this FD 15mm (as well as my other FD and AI lenses) works perfectly on my X-A1. Here are a couple of test photos. With a regular FD-FX adapter the 15mm provides the same angle of view as a 22.5mm lens on full-frame with some special ...

I did not want to highjack anyone else's threads that made me experiment more with the video capabilities of my X-A1. Before my short vacation a couple of weeks ago, somehow I have not noticed the so many negative comments about the alleged/assumed inferior quality of Fuji videos; therefore, not being aware that I am doing bad thing, I used my X-A1 for recording videos and I loved the image quality a lot (sound quality is another story). I have already published a couple of links here, but ...

I think many of You Fujifilm-fan Friends here are going to find this video fun to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmCl_-V_3uo This is more a technical experimenting in manual focusing videos rather than a music/dance entertainment movie. This was recorded during the "Croatian ball" after the Misina concert in Szenna, in a beautiful village where we had great four days. I took the opportunity to experiment with recording videos purely applying manual focusing. I used the excellent Olymp ...

I've received my Nikon G to Fujifilm FX lens adapter recently, and today I had a chance to give it a quick try with my Nikon AF-S 50mm/f1.4G on Fujifilm X-A1 when coming home from work near my favorite railway station. My short review here is about this particular combo. First of all I am quite happy with this setup. Nikon 50mm/f1.4G on X-A1 with lens hood. The camera: My daughter got a Fujifilm X-A1 camera as an award when she won a photography competition, and she gave me the camera as a ...

not expensive but not good either It's a slow men's camera with a useful lens but all technical functions are 3-5 years beyond time. Even Sony Nex-cameras are faster and modern and mFT-Cameras are much ahead and not less sharp. I wouldn't buy it again nor recommend it. It is to slow for me and the colors are not my taste. All other lenses are very expensive. I will buy me a Panasonic LX7 or Sony Nex 6 instead.

Uso con grande soddisfazione questa fotocamera da piu' di un mese con ottimi risultati.La risoluzione del jpeg nativo e' davvero impressionante vista a tutto schermo e sicuramente ai livelli delle migliori dslr entry level (a mio giudizio anche meglio).L'obiettivo 16/50 e' molto leggero e tutto sommato lavora bene, anche se a f22 mostra un po' la corda (io fotografo per lo piu' paesaggi) presentando una visibile distorsione ai bordi (ma parliamo di condizioni estreme).Personalmente trovo ...

Great little camera and with £80 casback!!! For what i shoot (mostly landscape this is an excellent little camera and the kit 16-50 lens is actually pretty good. Doesn't feel as well built as my X10. For a non X-trans sensor im amazed (genuinely). Was going to try it and send it back and get the XE-2, but now i'll keep this and get some primes with the saving over the XE2 and upgrade in the Future.
