As many of us already know and feel, making photography with Fujifilm is a powerful, pleasant and liberating experience. I will try to explain the best I can what is this sort of freedom and why is it so. However, I think this story can apply to those photographers who are not professionals, or if they are, then they could consider it while using their Fujifilm camera outside the paid jobs environment (with some exceptions).
Getting back to Fujifilm mirrorless cameras and especially to the X-H1 (which is the camera I am happily using now), the level of customizing your camera goes quite deep, at least for my expectations. You can shoot in RAW, or JPEG, or both combined and you can customize the quality and size of each type of image file. To get a complete overview of the totality of the menu settings for Fujifilm X-H1, the best way is to download and read the PDF user manual. I won’t get into that kind of technical details, but I’ll tell you about the settings that I use for the Color Profiles.
In almost every article I have wrote on my website, in the Blog section, regarding Fujifilm gear, I talk about the synergy between beauty and functionality. This is one of the strongest selling point for Fujifilm cameras. Apart from the Fujifilm’s performance required for our photographic needs, (for both pros and enthusiasts), they do provide something that most Fujifilm users, conscious, or unconscious are attracted to: beautiful, coherent design.
The GFX 50R is the second Medium Format digital mirrorless camera from Fujiiflm and it is one more good reason why you might feel the effects of GAS. With solid rumors, starting to merge in the most realistic and credible set of information, regarding the announcement of this new medium format camera, many of us, Fujifilm users, started to dream about accessing the world of digital medium format photography.
I am really interested in the future Fujifilm X-Pro3, as I had the X-Pro1 and now, I happily use the X-Pro2. We all have specific reasons to love the X-Pro series and I think the X-Pro3 would be an interesting topic to discuss, too.
Hello again and welcome to a new interview with another photographer. This passion for photography is flowing strong within many of us, but it’s mostly hidden behind the daily tasks we all need to do. But beyond the engineer, doctor, driver, mechanic, director, manager assistant and whatever job we might have during the working week, there is a passionate photographer – that’s the person we want to discover. Today, we will hear from Richard Sylvester, one of the “pillars” of the VIEWFINDERS – The Photography Club of Brussels, a good friend and truly a key committee member of this international club of photography. It is him who invited me to join this club and I could say he is the first person I knew from Brussels, even before moving to Belgium, a few years ago.
Sometimes I think about how to implement the minimalism philosophy in my photography style, following the “less is more” principle. But I don’t want to follow this path, just because I have read about it, or it might be a fashion in almost everything we want to create, today. It is “cool”, yes, but that’s not the point. I have come to this resolution, pushed by the need of change.
As photographers, no matter if we are beginners, enthusiasts, advanced or full professionals, we are living both interesting and challenging times. With the progress in science and technology and the way we work, interact with each other, buy, use and sell our equipment, all of these shape a totally different universe from what we were used to live, not so many years ago.
Recently, during a workshop with a Fujifilm X Photographer, I got the opportunity to test X100F and X-E3, along some other Fujifilm equipment.
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.
