Recently, during a workshop with a Fujifilm X Photographer, I got the chance to test some of Fujifilm equipment that I didn’t own, including three lenses that interests me and two new cameras.
One of the most discussed subjects related to photographic gear is also one of the oldest and most ardent, ever: prime lenses, or zoom lenses?
There was a time, not quite so long ago, when film photography really was the Golden Age of Photography and it was so alive and cool.
A Wide Speed Converter manufactured by Fujifilm, that could give you one additional stop of light, FF FOV, weather sealing and autofocus on XF lenses.
How many megapixels do you need in your digital camera? What MTF charts will be enough to satisfy your expectations? What type of photography do you practice, to justify the number of megapixels you just said to yourself (at least) you need to do the job better, the best?
Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 and Helios 58mm F2.0 are my 2 main prime lenses for portrait photography (sometimes I use another manual focus lens, the Pentacon 135mm F2.8), when used with a Fujifilm X mirrorless camera. I know many of the Fujifilm users do not have the 56mm prime lens for portraits, but instead, some of them use old legacy manual focus lenses as a cheap and accessible alternative.
Hello, photography lovers! We already are at the beginning of a new year, so new things should be said, new information should be gathered and new plans should already be in place, to start well in our photographic endeavors. Each new year is a perfect opportunity to change something in photography, to find new meanings […]
We often look at photography and its inspiration in a very different ways and each of us extracts a different meaning. Some of us see photography as a duty, others as a passion, or even fun.
The word “Bokeh” actually comes from the Japanese word “boke” ボケ, which means “blur”. The “h” at the end was added to emphasize on the correct pronunciation by the English speakers. “Bokeh” refers to the quality and aesthetics of the blurry parts (out of focus areas) in an image, taken by a photographic lens. It is not something you could really mathematically measure, or quantify, but more of an aspect which relates to photographic artistic principles.
This time I would like to share with you my opinion on using the middle-class telephoto zoom from Fuji, the Fujinon XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS, especially when used for portrait photography.
