Fuji news roundup…


And here comes a short roundup of the latest Fuji news:

Fuji X-E1 image samples at Digitalrev.

Kerry:Recently had my X-Pro 1 converted to full-time infrared.  Here’s the first set of images from a trip to Colorado earlier this week.  All but the last 3 were with the 35/1.4, the last 3 were with the CV 12/5.6 via the Fuji M-mount adapter.  Hope you like them! Pics on Flickr.

Japanese X PRO 1 test at Itmedia.

Some pictures of the X-E1 at DC.watch.

Price for Fujinon XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM in UK announced. The new Fujinon XF 14mm F2.8 R and 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS lens will be on the market in UK at the end of October/beginning of November for the price of £599. This lens is provided with zoom, optical stabiliser, silent and fast autofocus (in combination with the X-E1 processor this lens promises an autofocus time of 0,1 s.). This makes this lens ideal also for videos. For further specifications and sample pictures look at Fuji’s website.


Amarcord deals: Refurbished FinePix S5 and GF670


Our reader Jonathan sent us the link to a refurbished deal on cameras we don’t talk about very often.

The first deal is the two refurbished Fujifilm GF670 Rangefinder Folding Film Camera (Click here). This is a superb medium format camera and it makes me a bit proud to know that Fuji is still investing on developing film cameras. Not because I am a nostalgic men but because I I am convinced that medium format film has a “different” flair and quality that is yet unmatched by digital cameras. Just try to shot a B&W 120 roll with that camera and you will understand what I mean!

The second deal is related to the last Fuji DSLR camera, the Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro. You can find two refurbished cameras, one at Photographicstuff (Click here) and one at Supersmartelectronics (Click here). The camera has been announced back in 2006 and a lot of time passed until Fuji released another system camera, the X PRo 1.

But it’s undeniable now that Fuji’s future is the X mirrorless system and maybe even a new FF X system. There is no way back to DSLR and I don’t know how long they will make Film Cameras too.
