Monochrome Fujifilm X-Pro1 M and X100S M Available – Converted by Maxmax

If you always dreamed of a monochrome Fujifilm, then this might interest you.

The company Maxmax is converting th X-Pro1 and X100S to Monochrome cameras.

  • X-Pro1 M = $2,425
  • X100S M = $2,600

Expensive? Well, at least it’s considerably cheaper than the Leica M Monochrome ;)

You can download sample images and RAW files here.

I remind you that at a certain stage, Fujifilm managers publicly said that they are considering to make a monochrome X-Pro, but they are trying to understand how much interested there is on the market for that. So I launched a Poll here on FujiRumors, where you guys showed no big love for a X-ProM and shortly after, because of this poll, Fujifilm killed any plan. This is a true story shared publicly by a Fujifilm insider and shows that sometimes you guys have a terrific influence on Fuji’s plans (like the revival of the X-E3). Read more here.

Zack Arias Impresses His Audience with ISO 12,800 and Crazy Sharp Samples Taken with FUJIFILM GFX at his GPP Stage Talk

GFX Launch NightZach Arias – X-Photographer

Geplaatst door Fujifilm Middle East op woensdag 15 februari 2017

As you read here, Zack Arias is considering to sell all his X-gear to get the GFX.

In his recent GPP talk, he introduces the GFX in an interesting one hour video. Here some excerpts:

  • He will start telling you why he chose Medium Format and his first steps in with Medium Market.
  • He goes through his personal issues that, amongst the others, also influenced his work…. and shares his way out of that.
  • At minute 31:00 he starts sharing his recent work with the GFX
  • 32:25: He shares pictures that his 18 years old son took with the GFX.
  • 35:00: “I’ve shot every format, but Medium Format has this look. It’s how the highlights and shadows are retained, the soft transitions between those two, how the focus falls off. I can’t describe steroscopic bokeh at all, but I can see it. […] I want that different look.”
  • 39:00. Pixel Peeping Time… and you will hear the people just say “WOW!!” when they see the amazing sharpness and details.
  • 42:30: The MF Phase One is amazing. Has 1 AF point, though. He goes at 1,600 ISO at max with his Phase One now.
  • 43:55: Zack shows an image taken at ISO 12,800 (JPEG)… and again another WOW goes through the audience.
  • 48:00: A Fuji Representative says that Capture One will support the GFX

Fujifilm GFX: The Good and the Bad in Bryan’s First Impressions ** 3D Printed Tilt-Shift Adapter ** and More!

GFX Facebook Member Bryan wrote a very nice first impressions review about the GFX (prototype). Since the first look is visible only to people, who are members of the group, I will share the whole text here on FujiRumors. But you can find this and a lot more at the GFX facebook group. I really can’t keep up with all the news and hands on shared over there… so you better check out by yourself ;)

At the bottom of this post you will find a few more GFX links to Fuji Guys videos.

GFX FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Got to mess with the GFX a bit today. Some notes:

— It’s super light. Lighter than an FF DSLR. A bit bigger than I expected, but still very small. The vertical grip is great, and unlike other cameras, and because the battery door is on the side of the camera, there are contacts right on the bottom of the camera, so you don’t have to remove battery doors when adding the grip. You can quickly and easily just add or remove it whenever you want.

— The lenses are large, but also impossibly light, too. I don’t know what kind of sorcery this is. Even the zoom and the 120 macro were way lighter than I expected them to be.

— Because of the above, it kind of feels like a toy, which was a bit of disappointment. Sans grip and with the 63 f/2.8, it’d be a good (albeit expensive) “walkaround camera” with an amazing sensor because of its size and light weight, provided you can deal with the slow, deliberate, method of MF shooting.

— The Contrast-Detect Focusing is faster than I expected it to be, but it does hunt quite a bit, racking focus back and forth two or three times before it acquires focus – even in a relatively well-lit indoor space (like a camera shop). When it does lock on, using the smallest focusing area, focus is accurate and the results are sharp [ADMIN NOTE: keep in mind the firmware is not yet final]. The joystick is awesome to quickly navigate the 425 focus points.

— Viewfinder blackout seemed incredibly long. It got a little annoying. VF does not blackout during continuous shooting. [ADMIN NOTE: I wonder if High Performance mode was on and if that, along with a newer firmware, can shortn the black out time a bit] [ADMIN NOTE 2: Here are 2 videos, where you see the black out – video 1 / video 2 @ 1:33 ]

— Coming from using and owning a few Fujis, I was able to pick it up and manipulate everything without really having to wonder “how” to do something.

— Both screens are awesome. The e-ink display for the top of the camera is awesome and easy to read. The tilt-screen is the same as the XT2, so it can tilt to the right as well, Kind of cool to be able to use it as a pseudo waist-level finder. Touch screen works well for selecting focus points, as well as swiping through and pinch/tap to zoom in.

— I still don’t really like EVFs. It’s good on this camera, but not any noticeably better than my XPro2 or an XT2 (I still use the OVF on my Xpro, mostly). The EVF seemed to be laggy, but it was a “pre production” model.

— It’s comfortable-ish. I wish the grip was deeper to get a better grip on the camera.

— It’s well balanced – with the 63mm f/2.8 only. Put the 32-64 f/4 on it or the 120 f/4 macro, and it becomes fairly front-heavy. This is sort of alleviated a bit with the grip in place.

— I didn’t get to take any photos home on my own card, but going off of the rear screen during review, it’s really clean through ISO1600, and 3200 is usable.

— I was teetering (if I did buy one) between the 63 and the 32-64 zoom – The 63 is very sharp, and super light. I think the body (without grip), and a 63 would be the the best combo available at launch. I think the 45/63/110 would be the direction I’d go, if I decide to get one later on.

— Overall, I was hoping it’d sell me completely on the GFX, but I’m not quite there yet. The 1/125 X-sync is still something that concerns me, as well as the (lack of) weight and my lukewarm feelings about about EVFs.
