These 4 Fujifilm Cameras Snapped World Press Photo 2019 Winning Photos

World Press Photo is world’s most prestigious photojournalism contest.

In 2017, Fujifilm was the only brand to break the DSLR hegemony and also in the 2016, the X-Pro1 was the only MILC to snap a winning price.

In 2019, it is still DSLR that dominates, by taking 71% of the winning photos, but it’s less than in the past:

2019 has been Fuji’s best year so far, since Fuji X shooters snapped 4 winning images.

Interesting to note that Fuji’s rangefinder styled cameras win over the DSLR-styled ones, as opposed to real life, where the X-T line far outsells them all, the X-Pro, X100 and X-E line.

But at the end of the day, what matters is that we can see lots of great images at the worldpressphoto page here, and I am pretty sure you won’t care which image has been taken with which camera, but simply be captured by the stories they tell.

Fujinon XF 33mm f1.0 and XF 16-80mm f4 Hands On Video

At Photoforum 2019 in Moscow, a Russian youtuber went hands on with the Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0 R WR and XF 16-80mm f/4.

The youtuber had a chat with the Fuji rep, that the automatic google translation tool has a hard time to tranlsate, so if any Russian FR-reader has some spare time to do something good for the FR-community, feel free to drop your translation in the comments down below.

Until then, all I could get is that apparently the youtuber, after handling the XF33mm f/1.0, says:

  • it feels like around 800g weight“.
    Update with translation by FR reader
  • 33/1.0 dummy represents weight and size for now. Guess it will be pretty expensive. Awaiting next year
  • 16-80 will be affordable lens with extendable barrel (dummy shows folded state only). Also said that 16-80 will be lightweight lens for travellers and videographers

Of course the unit shown is just a dummy (the lens is on the roadmap for 2020), but dummies are usually accurate representations of the lens in terms of size, look and weight.

With that said, it’s still a long way, so there might be changes in size and weight until the final Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 hits the market in 2020, and dummies we see later on this year might look different than the early ones we see now.

Regarding the Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4, I remind you that Fujifilm said it will come this fall.

Check out the video above, which will skip the initial part of X-T30 and 16/2.8 introduction and jump straight to the XF33mmF1 and XF16-80mmF4.
