Fujifilm X-Pro3

Yesterday, our top trusted Japanese source contacted me, asking if the FujiRumors community would like to get some accurate sketches of the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

I told the source that I was hiking on my mountains and enjoying some local dance tradition show with my wife, so if it maybe can do that on Monday, or I’d have to pass my whole Sunday on the computer.

So, fellow readers, I hope you can understand and apologize me for leaking 24 hours later, but now it’s Monday, and we’d like present to you…

… the Fujifilm X-Pro3! :)

The source just quickly drew the Fujifilm X-Pro3 for us now (100% pencil and paper work due to issues with its graphic drawing tablet).

The rumor storm will continue, so stay tuned on FujiRumors and…

A MUST for X-PRO Lovers

Fujifilm X-H1, Still Worth Buying? Fuji X-H1 IBIS Compared to Sony a7iii (with a Clear Winner)

Share

Fujifilm X-H1 vs Sony A7III IBIS Comparison

When the Fujifilm X-H1 came out, it was the first Fujifilm camera with IBIS (well, after this one actually, but…).

Inevitably everybody started comparing Fuji’s IBIS to the ones available on other systems, especially on Sony… and so did Lee Zavitz now!

He now grabbed a Fujifilm X-H1 and tested its IBIS using the latest Fujifilm X-H1 firmware.

If you click the video above (which will start at 4:55), you will see it compared side by side to the IBIS on the Sony a7iii. The difference is hugely in favor of the Fujifilm X-H1. Actually it’s that bad on the Sony a7III, that one might think IBIS was disabled.

On the Sony IBIS side, things do not really get better with the smaller Sony A6600.

As we reported just yesterday Gordon from Cameralabs said that:

in some cases tuning on IBIS on Sony A6600 almost gives as shaky results as with IBIS turned OFF“.

Don’t get me wrong, Sony is great and we are all lucky to have such a wonderful camera manufacturer on the market. They deserve all the success they have, and in some areas they lead the pack (eye-aufofocus).

But sometimes, like IBIS and weather sealing (as reported here), one could get the impression Sony wants to put those specs on paper as a selling point, but they don’t really put all the R&D necessary to make them work at their best.

Not sure if Fujifilm should do the same, meaning don’t care much about how well the IBIS on their smaller X-T prototypes currently works, and just release an X-T4 or X-T40 with IBIS as soon as possible.

At the end of the day it will show up on the specs sheets, and hence become a selling point, no matter how well or not it works.

Or maybe Fujifilm should remain obsessed by how well their stuff actually works, and just wait until their smaller IBIS unit works properly.

Fujifilm X-H1, Still Worth Buying?

So, is the Fujifilm X-H1 still worth buying?

Well, now that you can get it with vertical grip and 2 additional batteries for $999 only, there can be only 1 possible answer: I don’t know, it’s up to you! :)

But if your answer is “yes”, then you have on big problem: the Fujifilm X-H1 is back-ordered on many stores, so good luck finding one.

All APS-C Shortcomings Exposed in this Image Roundup, and How I Couldn’t “Recover” my Wife – #photosfujicanttake

Share

Photos Fuji Can’t Take

Sometimes I wonder, why do I stick with APS-C and plague myself into a world full of photographic shortcomings?

It’s frustrating, for example recently, when I edited an image of my wife watching a sunset.

I exposed for the highlights, and my wife turned out basically pitch black, you can’t even see her shiny yellow dress.

Now watch the image below (or link to the video) and see how impossible it was to recover her with my APS-C Fujifilm X-E3 file. I needed hours and hours of editing, but it turned out completely unusable anyway. A memory thrown away due to my underperforming APS-C camera.

But my case is just one of many that fall under the section #photosfujicanttake.

So, I will list a few more images exposing the terrible shortcomings of Fujifilm APS-C, all shared at our Fujifilm X-T User group, which is full of depressed photographers dreaming of full frame or even medium format.

Sure, some brave guys try to compensate for the immense APS-C limitations with creativity and skills, but that’s not going to work at the end. We all know true photography is all about specs, 500% magnification and 10+ stops push.

I know it’s hard to digest, but the images below show that APS-C simply can’t deliver. Luckily Apple gave us a Pro photographer iPhone 11 Max. I think I am going to try with that one.

NOTE: I hope your sarcasm detector is ON ;)
