Bullet Time: Creating Animated GIFs for Weddings with 7 Fujifilm X70 Cameras

When I checked my Twitter this morning, I saw that JLBwedding shared with me this cool Tweet:

In summer 2016 he experimented with creating animated GIFs using multiple cameras. The goal was to animate a moment, frozen in time, from several angles. For doing this, he used 7 Fujifilm X70 cameras.

JLBweddings writes:

I tried two different triggering methods. The first was JJC JM-N(II) radio frequency wireless shutter remote controls. My later setup involved tearing apart and wiring together seven corded camera releases. Both methods worked and both failed

Other wedding photographer like it to make small video clips out of still images, like Kevin Mullins, as you can see in his video below.

Top Gear 2016: Fujifilm X-T2 Best Advanced Mirrorless (ephotozine) :: X-Pro2 Best Camera (Wired) :: X70 Best Fixed Lens Camera (IR)

It’s the time of the year, where several popular websites declare their favorite cameras of the year 2016. And of course, Fujifilm is well represented ;)

So here is the first selection:

The Fujifilm X-T2 delivers excellent image quality, with high-speed focus, and excellent noise performance. Every new release from Fujifilm gets better, and the X-T2 certainly delivers great results. Fujifilm has also had an excellent track record of introducing new firmware to new and old camera models, and if this continues, then we can expect the X-T2 will also get better with time.”

  • Gear of the Year: Richard’s choice – Fujifilm X-T2 at dpreview:

I just chose the one I enjoyed the most. […] as we enter the last week of our loan period, the X-T2 is the camera I’m least looking forward to shipping back. I’ll miss it, and I’ll miss the encouragement that it’s given me. Merry bloody Christmas.”

  • The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has been declared best camera 2016 by wired:

While it may not be the fastest camera, or the best for traditional pro photographers, Fujifilm’s X-Pro2 is a blast to shoot with. It oozes quality in every way, and turns out amazing images thanks to Fuji’s stellar lens lineup. If you love photography the way we do, the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is worth getting to know.”

For photographers who desire extensive physical controls, terrific image quality and a compact form factor, the X70 is the perfect camera and is our Enthusiast Fixed Lens Camera of the Year for 2016.
