    Fuji Fuji X10 New for $299 at B&H

    What a terrific deal. Now buy 2 extra batts, make sure you're V2.0 in the software (if you've got the Q-Menu when you push the RAW button, it's already onboard), and have a ball. For me, the lens alone is worht $299, what a gem. BTW, it makes a great motorcycle travel camera.

    Fuji Showcase X-S1 sample images

    I never understand why this little monster is overlooked; certainly if you're into 'bridge' cameras, there's nothing better. Everything else feels like a plastic toy. I'm very disappointed that it won't be continued, but will be very interested in Sony's new RX10, a camera which Fuji could...

    Fuji APS-C with a good fixed zoom...

    My more technical cohorts always point out that this would be a pig, size-wise, but . . . . . if Fuji could replicate the X10/20 lens on the X100S body, sheesh, I'd buy THREE of 'em.

    Fuji Fujifilm Instax Mini 90

    I think this is going to sell like hotcakes, but Fuji, please go one better: Make an X-Instax: You know, f-stops, shutter speeds, etc. I'll be the first in line !

    Trees by Fading Light

    Polished up pretty well. SOME day, Fuji may crack the algorithm that would make the 'Velvia' preset in these cameras worthy of the name. It will run away with itself pretty quickly, though I do find on really gray days, it can be just the thing. That the scene has to be THAT gray for it to be...

    Fuji Showcase X-S1 sample images

    I (happily) own an X-S1, and I'll be the first to admit it takes a lot for me to get close to DX or FX quality: It's just the relative disadvantage of the smaller sensor. Nobdy is trading in their D7000 to buy one of these for image quality. It's very good for what it is, but just like the...

    Fuji Has the Bubble Burst?

    Kirk's 'Visual Science Lab' is one of my regular Web-stops. As a rank, non-professional amateur who only shoots as a hobby, I would tend to agree with his posits in this column. For the 90% who shoot pictures (your Moms, Pops, Grandmothers, girlfriends, etc.) with point+shoots, the cellphone...

    Fuji X20 at $599 or X10 at $379?

    For me, the X10 NIB at $379 is a no-brainer: That's a steal. You can make great pics with either camera, but they are essentially two different cameras: I think of them like buying the same car with either a gas or a diesel engine. If this guy is quite a ways along in his digital...

    Fuji X10 to X20 - Is it worth upgrading? A PERSONAL view...

    The easiest way to think of the X10 and the X20 is to think of an automobile (this is easier in the EU) that's available with a roughly horsepower-equivalent gas or diesel engine. The X10 is EXR-based. After the massive problems they encountered with it, it was a no-brainer that the 10's...

    Fuji Why an X20?

    JDub, your post presses a few buttons with me (I love the picture, BTW). Something entirely overlooked when it comes to why we bought a certain camera: When it comes to many things (sporting gear, firearms, musical instruments, tools, etc.), rarely mentioned is how it feels in your hands and...

    Mikey: Thanks ! I'm chiming in as this was very surprising to me; I wish I was accomplished enough to have exposed this on my own, but it's all the camera, believe me. On the X10, this was done with the Night preset (there are two in the X10's SP list of presets, one with and one without a...

    My workplace is surrounded by undeveloped land and these (at least I think they are) thistles are everywhere right now, and I was drawn to them for the gnarly green, spiky stems and stalks with this crazy magenta bloom. All X-S1, late afternoon indirect light.

    Fuji Tell me about Zeiss

    Because they are Zeiss, and they can do whatever they want. As much as I admire Leica glass, Zeiss covers so much more ground, whether cine, photo, astronomical (they even make those insanely complicated planetarium projectors), NASA glass, binoculars, rifle scopes, you get the picture. In...

    Fuji Shooting a Birthday Party with the X-S1

    I agree. While a bridge camera is not the equivalent of a DSLR, it can get close enough for me since the convenience of its' 'all in one' is the deal-maker. The magic of going form macros inside the lens hood to full moon pics with the twsit of the zoom ring and afew keystrokes is just...

    Fuji EXR mode is great

    I spend most of my time in P mode, but I use EXR when I am presented with a view I just don't know what to do with. In which case, EXR is almost eerie in the way it sums up different light sources and blends them to a useable pic effortlessly. This was a costume company we always go to around...

    Fuji { Fuji Is The New Leica } | Things.That.Make.You.Go.Hmmm.

    Thanks, HC. Ironically, a friend (with deep pockets!) came by Sunday with his new camera: A Monokrom with a mounted 50mm f1.4 Asph. Sheesh . . . . interestingly he was astounded at everything the x10 did that his rig wouldn't, was struck by the LCD on the x. What a camera. But on the other...

    Fuji { Fuji Is The New Leica } | Things.That.Make.You.Go.Hmmm.

    I'm guessing that ZA meant Fujifilm (in his case, the x100s) was the 'new Leica' as it's like the 'old Leica': The best all-around instrument for candid photography, of course with the caveat that Leica in those days was affordable to a larger group of guys than the Black American Express card...

    Fuji Coming from APS-C X Trans sensor - what settings for as good as possible IQ for X-S1?

    Ramirez, I shoot a basic set up of Auto 400 ISO and DR400. In sunlight this may knock the ISO to 100 or 200. At times this may result in a shaky sharpness situation at long zoom settings, regardless of the image stabilization so I may occasionally bump up to Auto 800 to pick up a bit faster...

    Fuji Leather case for X10/X20?

    I have the Fujifilm black leather case for my X10. Once the lens is retracted (to OFF), the case closes over it just fine. Mine always goes Case Closed with the Marumi clear filter installed and the metal lens cap in place. The top un-snaps and you walk around with just the bottom on. Have...

    Fuji Ideal zoom lens for you

    My two daydreams: The x10/20 would reach to 135mm with the same apertures, and even though it would be an impractically large camera, the exact smae thing on an X100 frame.

    Fuji Going X10

    I have the Marumi Digital Clear on my 10: Screws into the lens' threads just fine, the Fuji adapter/hood screws into it just fine, and the 10's metal lens hood goes on over it with no problems. Have not seen / tried the Nisi.

    Fuji Going X10

    And something else is really beginning to make me wonder: I think after the X20 is in wide circulation, I am really starting to think we will see a difference in the output of each. I think there will be guys who ultimately will prefer the EXR sensor in the 10 to the X-Trans in the 20, and...

    Fuji Going X10

    You just have to decide if you're an 'early adopter', a 'newest-fastest-better-est' kind of guy, or are you getting something to keep for a while. I'm the latter. So when I got my X10, I knew it was something to keep that was going to take me more than a little while to learn how to really use...

    Fuji Fuji compact camera flash

    I can't stand that 'Put Your Hands Up!', harsh flash look. Like nippa, I prefer available light as well. Having said that, I own an X10 and X-S1, along with the EF-20 and EF-42 flashes, and the flash integration on these things is wonderful. In the camera menus, there is a separate menu item...
