After spending a lot of time in Japan and getting use to the culture shock, I’ve finally begun to see things differently.
We took the train from Fukuoka to Yufuin Japan. The ride is a few hours through Japan’s countryside, carved out by rivers and rice fields hidden between volcanic peaks, the landscape here is amazing and is one of Kyushu’s must see spots. It’s also a great place to relax, or to just shoot some travel photography.
You can spend hundreds, or even thousands on landscape photography tutorials, or . . . you can just shoot with Fujifilm.
Here is all I did to get these results.
The Fujinon 27mm f2.8 pancake lens is one of Fujifilm’s smallest and lightest lenses and is a perfect fit for the photographer looking for something compact and low profile for street shooting or travel.
The 27mm produces an field of view with the 35mm equivalent of 41mm. From overall image quality to the mechanical build, this lens is a very solid lens. Optically it can produce some amazing images while never holding you back with any major flaws.
Because of its small size and weight, it becomes one of those specialty lenses that every Fujifilm shooter should consider taking a second look at.
Remember when the Sony A7rII was released and we didn’t have the option for uncompressed RAW and the Internet almost exploded with nerd rage?
Almost immediately Sony responded and gave us uncompressed RAW and a new trend was born, the option to pick between lossless and uncompressed.
When Fujifilm released the X-Pro 2 and the X-T2, they hoped on the trend train and gave the option between lossless and uncompressed right out of the gate.
So now that we have the option to choose with the X-T2 and X-Pro 2, uncompressed vs. lossless, the question arises, does shooting with one versus the other actually make a difference?
The Specs . . . 4k video, a 24 megapixel sensor, two-way tilt screen, dual UHS-II memory card slots, boost performance of 14fps with a battery grip.
Did Fujifilm just make the best APS-C camera on the market?
p>I just finished doing the memory card speed tests with the Fujifilm X-T2 and I had to double check my results. The camera is smoking fast. Even faster than the X-Pro 2 and faster than any CF card I’ve tested to date. By a lot.
With the UHS-II Lexar 2000x I’m able to get write speeds up to 156 MB/s with an average of 153.79 MB/s.
Compared that to the Sony A6300 which has a max write speed of 33.19 MB/s and we’re looking at some huge advantages for sports and nature shooters who shoot a lot of burst photography.
After years of waiting, the new Fujifilm X-Pro 2 is here. With a huge bump in megapixels, processing power and build quality, the X-Pro 2 is not just better than original X-Pro 1, but it’s the best camera Fujifilm has built to date.
Not too long ago I made the leap into the FujiX100T fixed lens system. But why this camera? Why only a 16 megapixel APS-C camera with a fixed lens when I already own a Sony A7r with a few great lenses?
I use to think megapixels and dynamic range was all that mattered, but now after going through a few different camera bodies over the years, I’ve really come to learn that it’s the physical camera itself that matters. Not just the specs, or the pixel depth of the sensor resolution, but the way the camera feels in your hand, the experience of shooting itself. I’ve come to learn that it’s the actual physical process of taking the photos that I enjoy and the Fuji X100T is absolutely perfect for this.
With a few flaws of course 🙂
So I wanted to do a review different than all the other reviews on the Internet done by bloggers that have no idea what this camera really is. Yes this camera has auto focus, and it’s 16 megapixels and has a OVF / EVF!. Ok that’s out of the way. . .
Let’s get into this review! A real review that has taught me a ton about this camera and will hopefully teach you a few things too.
