This Fujifilm Lens Produces The Most Incredible Bokeh

  20.08.2017   Alik   Featured   No comments

There is a magical lens by Fujifilm that I feel just doesn’t get enough credit or praise and I wanted to dedicate a post to it and the insane bokeh it’s capable of producing.

What’s happened recently is that GFX camera dropped and it’s been stealing all the conversation in terms of depth of field and bokeh. But . . . with the right gear, the little ol APS-C X-T2 camera can still produce some absolutely incredible and professional shots.

This lens I’m talking about here has been one of my favorite lenses since the day I got it and is a lens I never go anywhere without.

If you’re looking to get started collecting old vintage lenses from the 80’s and 90’s, then the Helios 44 series is a great place to start. They are known for their beautiful large swirling bubble bokeh.

There are several variations of this lens all with different character. They are all similar and different but built with the same goal – to copy the Zeiss Biotar.

Lately I’ve been shooting quite a bit with the Helios 44-2 and other old vintage m42 manual focus lenses from the 80’s. While shooting with manual lenses takes more time and isn’t always as precise, it’s much more rewarding and you feel like you have complete control of every shot you take.

Not too far down in Malibu is this fancy little mall they call the Malibu County Mart. It’s a nice little escape from the over crowded city that is Los Angeles, but also is a great place for the little one to explore.
