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.

I just got this one and it is a great deal for the money, the kit lens 16-50 is actually pretty solid lens (optically) and has OIS. I also have the X-pro1 and the images are indistinguishable between those two. It is pretty much in the price range of the basic NEX or better M43 cameras, but in my opinion produces premium images (same as xpro1) and it gives you much better kit lens. However the slower auto-focus is the ongoing Fuji issue - it is slower than all the modern sony or ...
