Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 Official Product Page Online

As we told you, Viltrox started taking pre-orders on the Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 AF lens.

They have also the product page up on their website since 1 week now, but apparently some missed it, so I share it now with all of you.

You can see the core specs of the lens as well as product images below.

The lens is available only in China for now, but I expect BHphoto & Co to get samples soon.

The other two Viltrox lenses, the Viltrox 23mm f/1.4 and the Viltrox 56mm f/1.4, should follow later on.

Barack Obama’s White House Photographer Pete Souza Shares the Gear he Uses, his Top 5 Lenses and Talks also Fujifilm X-Pro2

We already know that Pete Souza, Obama’s White House photographer, also uses a Fujifilm X-Pro2. We reported about it here.

Now Pete shared a video about the gear he uses on his instagram (video below), and at the end he also talks briefly about the Fujifilm X-Pro2.

  • cameras are just tools. They all work well. You just have to make a decision yourself on what kind of gear you want use
  • in the White House, he worked with the Canon 5D series
  • his lens trinity: 35mm,50mm and 135mm [in the Fuji world it would be the XF23mm, XF35mm and XF90mm]. Occasionally he uses also an 85mm [the XF56mm in the Fuji world]
  • he also has a flash for posed backlit portraits photos
  • in the white house, he used Canon, he felt was the quietest. Nikon was as good if not better, but Canon was more silent in quiet mode than Nikon, that’s why he got the Canon
  • in 2012/2013 Canon released the second version of the 24-70mm, which was so good and much sharper than the first version, that he started to use it more. This was his primary lens when he photographed outside. He also used the 70-200mm when he was outdoor.
  • now he still uses basically the same gear
  • he purchased the Fujifilm X-Pro2 with XF 23mm f/1.4 lens
  • the X-Pro2 is a great camera to use for example in very silent situations. The camera has no mirror, so it can shoot completely quiet. He was able to shoot in studio while artists were singing, because it is totally silent

Not only Fujifilm, but of course every mirrorless camera is just ideal for silent shooting.

Fujifilm’s New Coronavirus Test can Produce Results in 2 Hours

Fujifilm announced that they developed a new fast test for Coronavirus. The New York Times writes:

The SARS-CoV-2 RT-qPCR Detection kit will be able to deliver results for the virus that causes COVID-19 faster than existing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, which presently take four to six hours, the company said.

Fujifilm said the new COVID-19 test will be released on April 15 in their press release (machine translated PDF)

I live here in Italy, and here there is a lot of talk about the urgent need for a fast, simple and affordable test to diagnose COVID-19. Many companies are working on it and I am happy to see Fujifilm is on it, too.
