Panasonic and Fujifilm reveal joint sensor development, offering global shutter

Panasonic claims that it has achieved 10x higher saturation (more than 3EV greater dynamic range) in a sensor using an Organic Photoconductive Film (OPF) developed by Fujifilm. In addition to greater dynamic range, the new sensor technology promises other benefits that should appeal to both photographers and videographers such as global shutter and more flexible lens design.

Going Pro: We interview Fujifilm execs in Tokyo

Last week, Fujifilm announced several new products including two major new cameras - the X-Pro2 and X70.

Hands-on with the Fujifilm X70

In addition to the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and X-E2S, Fujifilm also announced the X70, a compact camera with a fixed 28mm equiv. F2.8 lens. Focal length aside, the X70 is in many way an X100T without an electronic viewfinder, but with the addition of an articulating touchscreen. Read more 

Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 First Impressions Review

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a 24MP rangefinder-style mirrorless camera that sits at the top of the company's lineup. It's a successor to the company's original X-mount camera, the X-Pro1 and incorporates a host of improvements from subsequent models as well as a raft of new features.

Fujifilm announces its flagship 24 megapixel X-Pro2 mirrorless camera

Fujifilm has released the long-awaited followup to its flagship X-Pro1 mirrorless camera, aptly named the X-Pro2. While similar in design to its predecessor, virtually everything else about the X-Pro2 is new, including its 24MP X-Trans sensor, 273-point Hybrid AF system, 2.36M-dot 'Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder', an electronic shutter, refined controls and menus, and a lot more.

Fujifilm X70 puts 28mm equivalent F2.8 lens into compact X100-style body

Fujifilm has announced the X70, a fixed-lens compact camera designed in the spirit of the company's X100-series. While the X70 features the same 16MP APS-C-size X-Trans CMOS sensor as the X100T, it has a wider and slower lens (28mm equiv. F2.8) and lacks that clever hybrid viewfinder. What it does offer is Fujifilm's first touchscreen LCD, a max ISO of 51200, an electronic shutter, 1080/60p video and, of course, plenty of direct controls. Read more

Fujifilm X-E2S improves upon predecessor's AF system and ergonomics, adds electronic shutter

The Fujifilm X-E2S is an update to the company's premium rangefinder-style mirrorless camera, the X-E2, which was introduced back in 2013. New features include an improved AF system, an electronic shutter, top ISO sensitivity of 51200, and an improved grip and refined menu interface.

Fujifilm's budget FinePix XP90 rugged camera makes a splash

Continuing our 2015 series of articles highlighting staff favorites of the past year, DPR studio manager Samuel Spencer takes a look back, yet simultaneously forward, at instant photography and the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-1 instant printer, and the experiences he had with it while shooting his sister's wedding last March.

DPReview Gear of the Year part 2: Carey's choice - Fujifilm X-A2

DPReview's newest staff member finds surprise and delight in the Fujifilm X-A2, the least expensive model in Fuji's interchangeable-lens camera lineup. While its build quality can't compete with his X100's, the X-A2 proves itself with a large sensor, sharp kit lens and features that elevate it beyond its entry-level class. Read more

Rain or shine: Fujifilm XF 35mm F2 R WR real-world sample gallery

Fujifilm's XF 35mm F2 strikes an appealing balance between size, cost and durability. It's sealed against moisture and dust, making it a great candidate for use with the weather-resistant X-T1, and at $399 is a fairly affordable 'normal' prime for Fuji's X-system. The Pacific Northwest is just the place to test weather-resistant gear, though thankfully we've had enough unseasonably dry and sunny days to put together a real-world sample gallery with the 35mm F2.

Fujifilm's latest financials show strong sales of Instax products, shrinking sales of digital cameras

It's the season for pre-holiday financial earnings reports, and Fujifilm's latest numbers tell a familiar story - digital camera sales are down on the whole, with steady sales of higher-end products. Despite that, Fuji's imaging solutions division saw an increase in operating income, up to 12.4 billion yen in the first half of the financial year, marking a 2.7x improvement year-on-year.

Less is more? Fujifilm X-T10 review

The Fujifilm X-T10 puts many of the X-T1's capabilities into a smaller, less expensive body. It uses the same 16MP X-Trans CMOS sensor and EXR Processor II and, despite a more compact body, offers an additional custom function button and even squeezes in a pop-up flash. Is the X-T10 capable of holding its own against APS-C competitors? Read our full analysis. Read more

Fujifilm X-T10 Review
508
The Fujifilm X-T1 was a landmark camera in many ways, with it's extremely high resolution electronic viewfinder, great image quality, weather-sealed body, and engaging control system (we even gave it a Gold award). It's fairly commonplace for camera companies to follow up successful launches of high-end products, such as the X-T1, with a slightly-stripped down, more reasonably-priced alternative that uses many of the same components; a younger sibling, if you will. The Fujifilm X-T10 is exactly that.
Fujifilm announces X-T1 IR for infrared photography

Fujifilm has introduced the X-T1 IR, a version of its flagship mirrorless camera designed specifically for infrared photography. The camera captures light from UV, visible, and infrared portions of the spectrum, from approximately 380-1000nm. Everything else is identical to the standard X-T1. Read more

Just posted: Fujifilm X-T10 real-world samples

We had been shooting around with a pre-production version of the Fujifilm X-T10 for some time and recently got in a final version of the camera. Like the flagship X-T1, it uses Fujifilm's 16MP X-Trans APS-C sensor, which is known for producing pleasing colors. As such, we included a variety of out-of-camera JPEGs as well as Raw conversions. See the gallery

Fujifilm X-T10 shooting experience is now live

Though it has much in common with the X-T1 in terms of image quality, starting with its 16MP X-Trans APS-C sensor and EXR Processor II, the X-T10 presents a very different shooting experience. We've updated our Fujifilm X-T10 first impressions with some thoughts on using the camera in the field. Read more

Fujifilm FinePix S1 real-world sample gallery posted

At 50X, the Fujifilm FinePix S1 may not have the longest lens in its class, but it is the only superzoom that's weather-sealed and one of the very few with Raw support. Naturally, this means that we did some Raw conversions and shot in in the rain, and you can see the results in our samples gallery.

Fujifilm XF 16mm F1.4 R WR real-world sample gallery posted

The Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR is a weather-sealed prime, equivalent to a 24mm field of view on Fujifiilm's X-mount cameras. With a close focus distance of just 0.15m/6in. and a fast F1.4 aperture, this lens is super versatile. In our sample testing we found it to be sharp, and to offer pleasing bokeh. See our sample gallery

Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions & Image Samples

The Fujifilm X-T10 shares a similar relationship to the X-T1 that the OM-D E-M10 shares with its siblings - advanced features borrowed from a higher-spec model in a compact body. The X-T10 uses the X-T1's 16MP APS-C X-Trans sensor but offers slightly downgraded hardware and lacks weather-sealing. We've had the X-T10 in our hands long enough to get familiar with it and put together some first impressions. Read more

X-Transformed? Fujifilm X30 Review

The X30 is the latest iteration of Fujifilm's line of premium compact cameras. Featuring a 12MP X-Trans sensor coupled with a 28-112mm equivalent fast zoom, the X30 is a capable camera, made more enjoyable compared to its predecessors by the addition of a high-resolution electronic viewfinder. Our man in England, Damien Demolder has been shooting with one and shares his take. Read review

Fujifilm X30 First Impressions Review
The Fujifilm X20, introduced in January 2013, was a pretty impressive camera. With a 2/3" X-Trans sensor, relatively fast 28-112mm equivalent F2-2.8 lens, and a design that fitted right in with the company's other X-series models, it was a refreshing alternatives to other premium compacts.
Retro, refined: Fujifilm X100T reviewed

The Fujifilm X100T offers seemingly small improvements on its predecessors, the cult classic X100 and X100S. Its 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor and fixed 35mm equiv. f/2 lens are now accompanied by an all electronic shutter mode with increased 1/32000sec maximum speed, redesigned hybrid viewfinder and an upgraded 1.04m dot rear LCD. Find out how much of an impact these incremental updates make. Read review

Fujifilm   X100T Review
677
The Fujifilm FinePix X100 was a milestone camera in the industry as one of the first large sensor, prime lens cameras to achieve widespread popularity. Its classic looks, obviously cribbed from a certain German camera maker, were justified by the excellent image quality its 35mm equivalent f/2 lens could produce. It was also a rare example of a camera its maker continued to develop, long after it hit the market. An original X100 running the latest firmware is a much better camera than the one that Fujifilm originally launched. Impressively, this work continued even after the second-generation, Fujifilm X100S had been launched.

Fujifilm's XF 16-55mm F2.8 is a weather-sealed zoom covering a 24-83mm equivalent range. With a fast F2.8 constant aperture, manual aperture control and a new Nano-GI coating to reduce flare, it's a high-end lens to be sure. Take a look at how it performs in the real world. See gallery

Fujifilm has announced the X-A2, a new version of its X-A1 budget X-series mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, which incorporates mostly minor changes compared to its predecessor.

Other improvements include the addition of Fujifilm's new 'Classic Chrome' film simulation mode. Click through for some images
