Today, I’m really happy to say we’ve got Fujifilm X100F samples in our first impressions post. I’ve been super busy as of late, but I’m pretty glad to finally have the Fujifilm X100F in for review. On paper at least, the camera has a whole lot going for it. And it’s also fair to say that after a really long time, many users are going to be very happy with the camera and the progression it’s taken. Indeed, photographers like Rinzi Ruiz are doing some fantastic work with it. Overall, it’s pretty difficult to take a really awful photo with the camera.
Today at the Sony a9 announcement, Product Manager Kenta Honjo was kind enough to run through some features of the camera with us. The new Sony a9 is a groundbreaking (and in many ways game changing) camera when it comes to specs. You can see more over at our first impressions. But also check out the video after the jump.
The Fujifilm GFX 50S has been in for review for a few days now and I’m sort of wrapping my head around how to test it correctly. That’s kind of tough to explain for many reasons. You see, Fujifilm sent me the camera along with the 63mm f2.8 and the 120mm f4 lenses–both primes which are great for general work, portraiture, and the mainstay of most medium format photographers out there. Zooms are often tough to work with, but in some ways I feel like Fujifilm is genuinely trying to redefine the way people work with medium format cameras, lenses, and sensors.
I’m wrapping up the tail end of a Sony Press media excursion, and while here I’ve been testing the new Tokina 20mm f2 FiRIN a whole lot. After getting some initial thoughts after Photokina, I was really excited to play with the lens. It has much going for it as a wide angle, manual aperture, manual focus, and fairly compact prime lens. But one of the things that’s really great about it is how low the distortion is. In fact, it’s so low that I was confident in using it for shooting video of people.
We’ve been spending a bit of time getting to know the new Fujifilm X-T20 ( $849.00 ) and so far we’re pretty impressed with it’s capabilities. Today, we’ve added sample photos to our first impressions. When shot the right way, the Fujifilm X-T20 can do something absolutely special.
For CES 2017, Panasonic is reannouncing the Panasonic GH5 camera–the company’s flagship that has been mostly targeted at the videographer for many years now. With their newest addition to the lineup, the company is trying to make an even bigger splash. The GH5 is being pumped filled with all sorts of awesome features. Let’s take a look!
One of the latest companies to hit the scene is Irix. They’ve been around for a few years, but the Swedish company is gaining more and more recognition for some carefully thought out new features and attention to details. Their manual focus lenses are focused on the DSLR customer, but they state that offerings for mirrorless cameras are on their way.
Recently, we had the chance to play with the company’s new 11mm f4–and there is a whole lot here that everyone should be paying attention to.
