Get A Grip… again :-)! New X-E2/1 hand grip review at admiringlight + black X100S in stock again!

Share

 photo grip_zps2e05dded.jpg

The new X-E2/1 and X-PRO1 hand grips are here, and they allow you to access to the battery and memory card slot without removing the grip.

The grips should be available within days at BHphoto (click here) and AmazonUS (click here) for $129. (The X-PRO1 grip costs $149 and is available now at BHphoto, while it’s coming soon at AmazonUS).

Now, over at admiringlight here, you can read a first review about the X-E2/1 hand grip:

Overall, Fuji righted a wrong with the MHG-XE, providing a solidly built grip that allows access to the battery door while adding a very nice feature in the integrated Arca-Swiss dovetail. It’s a pricey accessory at $129.  It’s not going to be for everyone, but I think it’s worth it if you want a little better hold on your X-E1 or X-E2, especially if you use an Arca-Swiss tripod head.

black X100S in stock

The black X100S is in stock now at AmazonUS here (shipped and sold directly by Amazon) and at Adorama here.

– Andy sent me his first impressions of the X-T1 via facebook. Check it out here:

“First impression was WOW… very very nice to hold […] Files seem to be the best Ive seen out of the Fuji system yet. Ive never been a major fan of the way the X-Trans sensor draws but it seems to be different in this camera. It doesnt seem to have the “thatch work” pixel level drawing that X100s etc have. I would have thought it was the same sensor so theres something different at play here. […] (EVF) It’s definitely very good and it is large but its still nowhere near optical as some have inferred.”

– In this youtube video (German version), Ralf will lead you step by step through the menu and dials of the X-T1… and also he seems to be pretty enthusiastic about the X-T1. He says that the quality of the EVF is “really close to an optical viewfinder.”

XF 10-24: release delayed because “it sold better than expected!”

Share

PRE-ORDERS

USA: AmazonUS / BHphoto / Adorama / Pictureline / DigitalRev / EUROPE: DigitalRev / PCHstore / WexDE / WexUK

_ _ _

The XF10-24 was scheduled for March 15 release, but now AmazonUS postponed the expected availability of two weeks, to March 31th (BHphoto says just “April”)… a pretty long wait for a lens announced back in December 18th!

Now, according to dc.watch (translation), the reason for this further delay is that, worldwide, the lens sold better than expected, so Fuji has to produce more units to fulfill pre-orders. Believe it or not, here is also Fuji’s official press release.

I don’t know if it can help you to manage your impatience (or if it will make things worst), but in the meantime you can check out Rico’s X-T1 + 10-24 full size images (RAW’s converted with Iridient) at Flickr here.

X-T1: ephotozine review: “it’s hard to resist purchasing this camera” + All Black X100S in stock (Adorama)!

Share

 photo X-T1_zpsa3aefd83.jpg

After the photographyblog review (check it here), now also ephotozine postet its X-T1 review here… and it’s again, 5 out of 5 stars, editors choice and they conclude saying that “it could be very hard to resist purchasing this camera.”

Speed – We took a number of shots to test the camera’s responsiveness, from switch on to first photo, shot to shot, focusing speed etc. We take a number of shots and then use the average to ensure accurate and consistent tests, making it easy to compare with other cameras. With support for UHS-II memory cards the write speeds after and during continuous shooting seemed very quick indeed, and the card we were using with the camera is a Toshiba Exceria Pro (UHS-II) with read speeds up to 260MB/s and write speeds up to 240MB/s – much faster than the 95MB/s offered on other performance SD memory cards. Scrolling through photos is extremely quick, and focus is quick with the lens updated to the latest firmware.”

The next review will probably come from imaging-resource… they already shared some samples here.

And you, can you resist to the X-T1? Is it tempting you? If it can help to decide, Oscar Wilde said that “the only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.” Just kidding, I’m so happy with my X-E2 that I won’t make the switch to the X-T1… sure, once it is in the store of my hometown, I’ll go there and give it a closer look, but I won’t switch… I think ;-).

And here just some more tidbits, the shutter sound (youtube). For the first wedding with the X-T1 click here for the Italian version (translation).
