Kevin Mullins’ X100S book available for pre-order (get 25% discount)

Kevin Mullins is writing a book about the Fujifilm X100S, which will be available in July. The book is called “From Snapshots to Great Shots” and can now be pre-ordered at AmazonUS here.

“While the camera manual explains what the camera can do, it doesn’t show exactly how to use the camera to create great images! That’s where Fujifilm X100S: From Snapshots to Great Shots comes in. Starting with the top ten things users need to know about the camera, author Kevin Mullins carefully guides readers through the operating features. Readers get practical advice from a pro on which settings to use when, great shooting tips, and end of chapter assignments. “

You can take a look also at Alexander S. White book “Photographer’s Guide to the Fujifilm X100S” at AmazonUS here.

But the X100S is matter of the study also in Tony Phillips’ book “Guide to Fujifilm’s X100s Camera“, listed here at AmazonUS and at his personal website.

First looks at the Samyang/Rokinon 12mm f2.0

AmazonUS / BHphoto

– Rokinon 12mm f2.0 for X-Mount – a first look at aps-photo: “Is this a replacement for the Fuji lenses? No I don’t think so, it might be a nice addition or if you are on a budget it might be a good lens to get. It is really hard to beat the Fuji 14mm f2.8 or the Fuji 10-24mm f4, they are very high quality lenses.”

– A pretty detailed first look at the Rokinon 12mm (mounted on Canon EOS-M) by N. Hamilton can be read at the AmazonUS customer reviews here: “For the money, I’m very pleased with my purchase. There are a variety of good reasons NOT to buy this lens, but if you can live with the negatives, this lens is a good value ultra-wide angle. Even after the use I’ve put it through so far, I would buy this lens again. I plan to give it some more extensive testing in the next several weeks.”

  • The latest firmware can be downloaded from the website of Fujifilm. (Will be released April 22, 2014)“. In the English version of the press-release Fuji wrote: “Achieving the very best results from the TCL-X100 is simple; just select the ‘Tele- Conversion Lens’ option in the FUJIFILM X100/X100S’s shooting menu. To enable this extra functionality, the camera must update the firmware(X100:ver2.10 or later /X100S:ver1.20 or later) which also allows the option to be selected via the function (Fn) button.”
  • it is possible to “Fujifilm tele conversion lens TCL-X100” (hereinafter referred to as “TCL-X100”) will be released on April 25, 2014

So outside Japan the lens will be available in May. Another confirmation of rumors posted previously here on Fujirumors comes from dpreview. They say that the price of the TCL-X100 will be of $350.
