Fuji Manager: “Medium Format? We can Satisfy Most People with APS-C. But in Future Our Goal is to Satisfy Everyone!”

Medium Format

[wysija_form id=”1″]

_ _ _

Following the Fujifilm X-T2 launch, dpreview had a talk with 3 important Fuji Managers: Yuji Igarashi, Takashi Ueno and Ryouichi Takamoto.

Of course a lot of talk about the Fujifilm X-T2. But not only. Here some excerpts:

Q: Could 4K movie recording be added to the X-Pro 2 with firmware?
A: No. Because of hardware issues. We’d need to add a heatsink, which the X-Pro 2 doesn’t have because we wanted to maintain its body size.

Q: Why did you decide not to include a touchscreen on the X-T2?
One reason is that a key feature of the X-series is dial operation. And dial operation and touch operation are completely different, so combining them could be confusing. The typical way of shooting with X-series cameras is with your eye to the viewfinder, and to use a touchscreen you’d have to take your eye away from the finder.

Q: Hasselblad just released the X1D – a relatively compact medium format camera. Do you think there is an opportunity for Fujfilm in this market in the future?
A: We’re keeping our eye on that market, and the full-frame market too, but we’re still focusing on our APS-C range. […] The question of sensor size depends on what the user wants, as an output. If you’re using a medium format camera and you definitely need that for the work you’re doing, maybe APS-C is too small. But for general use, I think our [current] APS-C sensor is comparable to full-frame image quality. I think we can satisfy most people. But in future our goal is to satisfy everyone.

Q: Is Fujfilm committed to the sub-APS-C market anymore, or are you focused now on APS-C?
A: We still do well with tough cameras. Because smartphones haven’t been able to replace them. So we’ve not completely abandoned that market. As long as there’s opportunity we’ll continue to look into it.

Comment from dpreview:

Publicly, Fujifilm is fully committed to its APS-C system, with its twin flagships, but I’d be very surprised if some of the company’s engineers aren’t looking jealously westward to Sweden, where Hasselblad recently announced the X1D. This, after all, is precisely the kind of medium format camera that Fujifilm used to be known for, back in the film days. Lightweight (ish), easy-to-use, and relatively affordable next to more traditional SLRs.

One of the gentlemen I spoke to last week said that ‘in future our goal is to satisfy everyone’. Only he knows exactly what he meant by that, but it’s fun to speculate. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Full Interview at dpreview (thanks for the link, J.)

Some Thoughts:

  1. Say goodbye forever to your dreams of a 4K Firmware for the Fuji X-Pro2
  2. It really sounds like the Manager declared the death of the X10/20/30 line. Apparently, to what belongs sensors smaller than APS-C, only the tough waterproof and shock resistant camera line of the Fujifilm XP90 will survive. Not a big surprise. Our trusted Japanese source already told us, that there is no X40 on the horizon. Moreover, the X30 and XQ2 are already officially discountinued… and not because a successor is coming anytime soon.
  3. It’s over a year now that I insist Fuji is working on a Medium Format camera. And I see around the web the Medium Format Fujifilm rumor is already taken as some kind of fact… and that’s good so, because it’s true. I tell you, if for some reason it does not come, I’ll close FR and hide somewhere forever ;) .

~1200mm~ Quick Review of the Fuji 2.0x Teleconverter with Fujinon XF100-400

Preface:

About a year ago while hiking in Zion Utah, I came across a big horn sheep herd, I took some pictures with the Fuji 90mm at far too close a distance (around 4 meters), since then I’ve been hooked and keen on trying out wildlife photography as a pastime. This is what has led me into the point I am at now, with a Fuji 100-400mm a 2x teleconverter and a cropped sensor, equating to ≈ 1200mm

Equipment: Fuji X-Pro2, Fuji 100-400mm, Fuji 2x TC

Look and feel:

The combination is very easy to use, it’s still light, although too long for most bags, and wildlife begs for your camera and lens to be ready and set up, with hood on and camera setup it makes this a large, yet light package.

Durability:

Hiked through the mountains of Yellowstone Nation Park for 10 days, got rained on very hard (way to much for comfort) and the combination kept up with nary a problem in sight. It seems to be apt for the job.

Sharpness:

Well this is tricky, the Fuji 100-400 is sharp, but at the 400mm end it’s not as sharp, the setup although fantastic for shooting hand-held, isn’t bright enough to keep ISO down and shutter speeds up, not to mention swinging 1200mm is tricky at best and your movement is amplified greatly and you can overwork the Optical Stabilization quickly with quick jerks and movements, but I got really good results hand-held @1200mm’s without wearing myself out because of weight and size, I would call that a good give and take.

Image Stabilization:

It’s hands down amazing, it’s not magic, you can’t swing this combination and hope for the best, but I spoke with many photographers all of which were posting against something or had tripods, at the distances we were sharing my photos were more clear, and usually much closer.

Reach:

1200mm can be shot handheld with ease, and its much easier to fill up the frame at safer distances.

Auto Focus:

It works, and I know this sounds rather silly, but you have to spend a lot of money on the DSLR side to get 1200mm to autofocus (from what I know). It’s actually pretty fast and accurate in good light. It’s amazing to think that it is contrast based to be honest.

Conclusion:

I couldn’t be happier with this combination, I’m truly hoping that fuji comes out with a 300mm f2.8, I would buy that setup in a heart beat. As is though, Fuji is really moving quickly with filling in all the gaps with lenses, they are making wonderful optics and they truly work well and are a pleasure to use.
