Roundup Fuji… some reviews and pics

Share

X-F1

thenewcamera.com compared the specifications of the Canon G15 and the Fuji XF1. It’s not really a review, just a cold comparison of specifications. Bigger sensor for the Fuji, better ISO range for the Canon. Better shutter range for the Fuji, and OVF for the Canon. Look here for more. Tell me, who would gain a point for better appearance?

There is a review of photographybay.com. His conclusions are: “All in all, the Fuji XF1 has the makings of a nice point and shoot camera.  I will be curious to see how others receive the lens-twisting quagmire once the camera hits store shelves in the next few days.Click here to read the review.

There is a XF1 hands-on review at DC.watch and a review on photographytalk.com.

Also danbaileyphoto.com could hold the camera in his hands for about one hour. Click here to read his impressions.

X-E1

There are some sample pictures taken with a X-E1 + Fujinon XF 18-55 mm f/2.8-4 OIS on optyczne (click here) and a detailed (Chinese) review with a lot of pictures on mobileo.com (click here)

And here a professional photograph, bertstephani.com, tested for the first time the X-E1 in his studio and writes about his first impressions (click here).

X-PRO1

Martin Hülle crossed alone a region between Norway and Sweden. He took images with the X-PRO1. Look at them here. And you can also read about his workflow, among other things how he works with RAW-files (click here). It’s in German. The Out-of-Cam JPGs are very good. So he focuses more on the “old school-photography” than editing images later. We know that’s not that simple to work with X-Trans RAW-files… until now.

Not a review, but I decided to link you to stephangeyer.com (click here) so you can see a X-PRO1 (click here) on safari in South Africa.

If you want a short review of the X-PRO1 take at look at theonlinephotographer (click here).

For a  declaration of love to the X-PRO1 click here.

Look at images taken with the X-PRO1 at the Shooting Street Fashion. “Shooting Street Fashion Sydney (SFS) is all about getting the image as quickly and efficiently as possible.Click here to go to streetfashionsydney.blogspot.com

X-TRANS WORKFLOW

Kinematic Digit writes about the X-Trans sensor and the RAW-problem. After playing around for a few weeks he believes that “this is probably the maximum that we can get out of the Fuji RAF files until the other developers come up with better understanding of the unique X-Trans CMOS sensor.Now this is still not the most ideal workflow for most people. Pixel Peeping aside, the Fuji X files are fantastic, even in Adobe Lightroom. My goal in this was to get a better understanding of what is going on.Read about his workflow here.

Fuji FinePix F800EXR

New reviews of the compact Fuji FinePix F800EXR can be read on DSLRPhoto (click here) and on ePhotoZine (click here) with a few picture samples. The conclusions ePhotoZine makes are: “Like the versions before it, the Fujifilm FinePix F800EXR is one of the smallest cameras available with a 20x optical zoom lens, and its design with large front grip helps keep the camera steady when shooting. The camera takes pleasing photos with good colour reproduction and has a variety of useful options including the ability to get better dynamic range in bright or difficult shooting conditions, although this is at a lower resolution when using the EXR modes. The camera does a lot of things well, including Wi-Fi transfer, and has a wide variety of controls including RAW, however if you’re keen on recording video then you may be a little disappointed.

At least a Fujifilm XS1– Preview at Photographic Central.

Have a nice weekend!

    I still don’t quite understand what the deal is with the X-Pro1 RAW files.
    I seem to be able to open them just fine in CS6.

      I think if you compared a Silky Pix processed RAW to Adobe CS6 you would notice a difference in sharpness. Also in dark / low light areas CS6 creates noisy looking images.
