Minimal distractions, just photography: Fujifilm release X-Pro3, the latest mirrorless digital camera to join the X Series line-up

Featuring a durable yet elegant Duratect™ coating and titanium exterior, advanced hybrid viewfinder with enhanced resolution to enhance the joy of viewfinder shooting, and a beautiful new ‘CLASSIC Neg’ Film Simulation, the FUJIFILM X-Pro3 celebrates the essence of pure photography.

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the launch of the FUJIFILM X-Pro3 (hereinafter “X-Pro3”) in late November, 2019, as the latest flagship model for the X Series range of mirrorless digital cameras.

The X Series’ first interchangeable lens camera, “FUJIFILM X-Pro1,” was released in February 2012 and its successor, “FUJIFILM X-Pro2,” in March 2016 with vastly improved image quality and performance. The X-Pro Series has been embraced by many professional and enthusiast photographers, working in the fields of documentary and reportage photography because of the classic rangefinder style, portability and dials that enable intuitive operation.

The X-Pro3 now has one of the most durable camera bodies thanks to the use of titanium for the exterior sections, which has outstanding strength to weight ratio. Two colour variations will be available with additional DuratectTM surface-hardening technology for extra toughness and a premium finish. The X-Pro3 uses the back illuminated 26.1MP “X-TransTM*2 CMOS 4” sensor and the “X-Processor 4” image processing engine, first seen in the FUJIFILM X-T3 and then the FUJIFILM X-T30, to ensure the right level of performance and image quality for a flagship model are met. Using this combination and new firmware, the phase-detection AF now works down to a luminance of -6EV, which is close to pitch darkness. The new “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder,” uses a high resolution 3.69-million-dot organic EL panel, and has a high luminance and advanced colour reproduction to assist photographers and improve the viewfinder experience. Also new is “CLASSIC Neg” Film Simulation, which simulates colour negative film that was normally used for everyday snapshots.

Main product features

Advanced durability
・ The exterior of the camera body is made of titanium, which gives the camera additional strength and corrosion resistance. The “Black” version combines titanium with premium quality coating giving it a sleek, elegant appearance. Also available are the “DR Black” and “DR Silver” versions, which have the surface hardening technology called DuratectTM applied to achieve a Vickers hardness rating up to 1500Hv to protect the camera from scratches while accentuating the look with a unique texture.
・ The internal framework of the camera body is made from magnesium alloy. Weather sealing has been applied at 70 points to give the camera advanced dust and moisture resistance. The camera is also capable of operating in temperatures as low as -10℃, allowing users to be on location and not having to worry about the weather.

Enhanced “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder,”
・ Users can switch between the optical viewfinder (OVF), which provides a constant view of your subject without any time lag, and the electronic viewfinder (EVF), which allows you to check exposure while you shoot.
・ The EVF uses a 3.69-million-dot organic EL panel with advanced display performance. The organic EL panel boasts a high contrast ratio of over 1:5000 and the maximum luminance of 1500cd/m2 to display the finest details even in shadows and highlights. It also covers 97% of the sRGB colour space, giving more accurate color reproduction.
・ EVF display options in the “Boost” performance mode now includes “Smoothness priority” where a black frame is inserted between each of the frames at approx. 100fps to provide a smoother appearance with a minimal sense of residual images, giving an equivalent refresh rate of approx. 200fps. This option is recommended when you are taking pictures of fast moving subjects and need to track the erratic motion.
・ The camera also features the “Electronic Range Finder” function, in which a small EVF window is displayed within the OVF to help checking electronic settings. The EVF window displays live view, enlargement of an AF point and pictures taken, improving the usefulness of the OVF.

Maximum performance from fourth generation sensor and processor
・ The X-Pro3 uses an improved algorithm to enable autofocus at the minimum luminance of -6EV, which is near pitch-darkness.
・ The camera features a new HDR shooting function, which combines multiple continuously shot images of different exposure levels to expand the dynamic range. The tool, designed to recreate the vast dynamic range of light conditions that exist in nature, produces natural tones without causing exaggerated amplification of colour tones.
・ The X-Pro3 for the first time has an AF range limiter function, which has been available only on a limited number of lenses until now. You can select from two preset values or use the focus ring to specify any focus range. This gives the focus preset function available to all XF lenses.
・ The camera handles multiple exposures of up to 9 frames in the Additive, Average, Comparative Bright or Comparative Dark mode to combine images taken from multiple viewpoints or at different times into a single image. You can apply different Film Simulation modes to each of the frames to create a multi-layered collage.

Image quality produced from the understanding of colour gained over 85 years in the industry
・ “CLASSIC Neg” mode has been added to the Film Simulation function, which simulates colour negative film traditionally chosen for everyday snapshots. The colours, precisely controlled for each level of brightness, create a rich chromatic contrast to add extra definition to the image.
・ The Black & White adjustment function, originally introduced to the FUJIFILM X-T3 and FUJIFILM X-T30 to apply warm and cool tones to monochrome images, has been updated as the “Monochromatic Colour” function. The X-Pro3 now allows you to choose the key colour from a matrix of Warm / Cool tones and Magenta / Green hues, incorporating the rich gradation into your images to create photographs with a personal twist.
・ “Clarity setting” has been included as an image quality parameter to complement the existing Highlight Tone, Shadow Tone and Sharpness. Texture and outlines of subject can be accentuated or softened while retaining gradation of colours to control the overall look of a picture.
・ The Grain Effect function, which simulates the photographic film, has been evolved so that you can adjust “strength” and “size” to attain a more precise control over graininess, instead of having just two options of “strong” and “weak” graininess in previous models.
・ Reproducing gradation is notoriously difficult for a subject with highly saturated colours. The “Colour Chrome” effect, which reproduces deeper colours and greater tonal definition in such subjects, is now complemented with the “Colour Chrome Blue” effect, applying extra depth and natural vividness to the blue tones in a picture.

Superb handling in the pursuit of pure photography
・ The 1.62-million-dot high-resolution tilting LCD touchscreen display, can flip approx. 180 degrees, allowing you to shoot from the hip, at ground level or with the camera above your head. The screen offers a wide angle of view and delivers high contrast yet natural colour reproduction to provide a clear and high quality view.
・ The rear 1.28-inch colour Memory LCD, protected with toughened glass, displays shooting settings regardless if the camera is turned on or not. The screen can be set in the “Classic” mode which displays Film Simulation, white balance and other image settings reminiscent of film cameras, or in the “Standard” mode for displays shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, the number of remaining frames and other shooting settings in plain numbers and icons.
・ The “Highlight Tone” and “Shadow Tone” options, have been integrated into the “Tonal Curve” setting so that you can intuitively adjust settings while checking the tonal curve.
・ Compatibility with 3rd party software has been improved so they can now read ratings given to pictures using the “Rating” function.
・ The X-Pro3 has a USB Type-C port (USB3.1 Gen1), to charge the camera’s battery and transfer data.
・ The functionality of the “Q” quick menu has been improved. You can now choose the number of icons to be displayed in the menu from 16, 12, 8 or 4. “Transparent” has been added as a new background option, allowing you to change the settings but ensuring you won’t miss a photo opportunity.

Optional accessories
“BLC-XPRO3” leather case (for the X-Pro3)
・ This genuine leather case elegantly shows off the X-Pro3’s classic design while protecting the camera body. The battery can be replaced while the case is attached to the camera.
・ The case comes with a cloth to wrap the entire camera body when storing it in a bag.
“MHG-XPRO3” hand grip (for the X-Pro3)
・ This hand grip improves the handling of the camera, especially when using a heavier, large aperture lens. You can replace the battery or SD card without needing to remove the grip.

Pricing and availability:

The X-Pro3 will be available as body only and priced as follows:

Black – £1699 / €1899 – available from 28th November
Dura Black – £1879 / €2099 – available from mid-December
Dura Silver – £1879 / €2099 – available from mid-December

Creating The Boss

I captured this image on the Fujiholics Photowalk in Cardiff. I am not a good street photographer, but during the photowalks I have learnt to always keep looking around, so when I spotted this person near the Boss shop, I framed up and waited for them to walk directly under the shop logo. The image was captured with the delightfully compact Fujifilm X-T30 & XF18-55mm lens and in camera processed jpeg using Velvia film simulation. This is now my ‘go to’ take anywhere travel kit. I also carry a set of screw on ND filters and Manfrotto Pixi tripod, which all fit in a small bag and means I can travel light and cover most scenarios of shooting for what I want to do.

I never attend the walks to get good images, but more for the social aspect and getting to see different places around the UK. Just by chatting with other fellow enthusiast, I have learned so much, and made new friends too. If you plan these well in advance you can get cheap train travel and accommodation also, and life is all about the journey, as they say.

I haven’t specialized in any particular area of Photography, and am not at a point where I want to yet, but I do know where my weaknesses are and do want to carry on learning and improving. I have started a couple of projects this year, but I need to be a bit more organised with these, but I think again, that this is all part of the journey all photographers are on.

For me it’s vitally important to keep getting out and taking images, reviewing what has worked well, and more importantly what hasn’t worked well, and to keep on repeating this cycle. I feel that this approach is working for me and I don’t have any photographic aspirations other than to keep learning, improving and enjoying the experience along the way.

Could you be Tempted by the Fujifilm XF10?

Amy Davies is a journalist and photographer. As well as being a Features Editor for Amateur Photographer magazine, she also writes about cameras and associated technology for a range of publications and websites, including T3, Photography Blog, Stuff, Trusted Reviews, TechRadar, Camera Jabber, ePhotozine, Expert Reviews and our own Fujiholics. Amy is also one of the judges in the Fujiholics Photographer of the Year competition.

There’s a heck of a lot of love for the Fujifilm X70 among the Fujiholics community.

This pocket-sized powerhouse made waves when it was first released a few years ago, with its APS-C sized sensor and diminutive dimensions.  Barely a week seems to go by when somebody isn’t trying to get hold of one of these beauties second hand, so it has always felt extremely disappointing that Fujifilm took the decision to discontinue the product, and not release a definitive replacement. Perhaps there wasn’t the mass appeal that made production worthwhile.

That said, the XF10 made its way on to the market in the summer of last year, with it being a de facto X70 Mark II / X80 / whatever else Fujifilm might have called it.

Fujifilm XF 10 Review

It features some similar features, but in order to keep the price down, it also includes some compromises. It’s not hard to imagine why – at over £550 at the time of launch, the X70 occupied a sort of middle ground of being too expensive for a pocket camera, while not being quite advanced enough for serious users who were probably more tempted towards the X100 models. By contrast, the XF10 can be picked up for around £400, making it just that little bit more tempting.

At that price, you might consider picking one up to have with you at times when your other X series cameras (or even GFX) are not particularly practical and you don’t want to rely solely on your smartphone.

Having been a big fan of the X70 myself, I was keen to find out if the XF10 was a worthy replacement for this favourite, so I spent some time using both together to see how I got on – here are my findings.

Fujifilm XF 10 Review

Fujifilm XF10 vs Fujifilm X70: Lens

Both thE XF10 and the X70 have a fixed 18.5mm f/2.8 lens. As this is paired with an APS-C sized sensor, the crop factor gives it a 35mm equivalent of 28mm. That makes it a bit wider than the X100 series, which features a 23mm (34.5mm equivalent lens). XF10 and X70 lenses have a minimum focusing distance of 10cm, too.

Fujifilm XF 10 Review

Fujifilm XF10 vs Fujifilm X70: Sensor

Here’s one example of where Fujifilm has used cheaper technology in the XF10 to keep costs down. The XF10 uses a traditional Bayer type sensor that you’ll find in many other types of cameras, while the X70 had an X-Trans II sensor. On the plus side, there’s a bump in resolution with the XF10 giving you 24.2 megapixels, compared to the X70’s 16.3 megapixels. Realistically however, the differences between these sensors are likely to be fairly unnoticeable unless you’re zooming at 100% or printing at massive sizes. Both are APS-C sized, which is the same as you’ll find in an X series interchangeable lens camera, too.

Fujifilm XF10 vs Fujifilm X70: Screen

This one is a big one for me – and the biggest downside I found when shooting with both cameras. There’s no viewfinder with either of these cameras so of course you’re relying on the screen for composition and playback. The X70 had a very handy tilting screen that made it easier to shoot from awkward angles, or from the hip when shooting street.

Sadly, the XF10’s screen is fixed. Whether that bothers you is down to personal preference – it certainly makes it look a bit sleeker and is of course less prone to damage.

Both screens are touch-sensitive, 3-inches and with a 1040k-dot resolution.

Fujifilm XF 10 Review

Fujifilm XF10 vs Fujifilm X70: Handling

In terms of size and weight, the XF10 is fairly closely matched to its sort-of predecessor. To me, the X70 feels a bit sturdier and well-built, but the XF10 is still very nice.

the X70 feels like it’s aimed more at enthusiasts than the XF10, as it has a dedicated shutter speed and exposure compensation dial, plus the very useful aperture ring around the lens. The XF10 has none of those – in their places you’ll find a mode dial with a bunch of automatic, semi-automatic and manual settings, plus two dials that change function depending on the shooting mode you’re in. You don’t get an aperture ring, but you do get a control ring which can be used for a variety of functions (not aperture though).

Overall, for me, the X70 definitely has the edge here – but if you’ve never used one, then you might not realise what you’re missing out on here.

Fujifilm XF10 vs Fujifilm X70: Image Quality

As suspected, image quality between the two is actually very similar. If image quality is your main concern (as it should be), you shouldn’t feel like it’s too much of a compromise picking up the XF10 over the X70.

That APS-C sensor and great f/2.8 lens is a lovely combination that works well for a variety of different subjects. It’s a good length as a “walkaround” lens, being useful for landscapes, interiors, even environmental type portraits and pet shots.

Fujifilm XF 10 Review

Fujifilm XF10 vs Fujifilm X70: Performance

It’s fair to say that neither of these cameras are designed with sports or action shooting in mind – even if they had more exciting burst speeds and burst depths, you won’t find many people shooting those kind of subjects at 28mm. The XF10 gives you 6fps (compared to 8fps from the X70) if you want to give it a go, though.

More interestingly is the differences in the shutter. The XF10 tops out at 1/16000 when using the electronic shutter, compared with 1/32000 with the X70. That might have an impact when you’re photographing at wide apertures in very bright light, but it’s probably not going to affect most on an everyday basis.

In terms of focusing, the XF10 has its faults. There are times when it hunts to acquire focus and other times where it gives up altogether. Frankly, the X70 wasn’t perfect either but I was hoping this would have been improved with the XF10. With the XF10, you’ll need to appreciate the slower things in time and take your time – not necessarily a bad thing.

 So what should I buy?

If you’re after a brand new camera, you really don’t have much choice between the two – you’ll have to plump for the XF10.

Finding second-hand models of the X70 isn’t too hard at the moment, but they’re becoming increasingly rarer. It’s probably worth going for it sooner rather than later before stock dries up completely. At the time of writing this, I can see a couple of “like new” second-hand examples on websites such as MPB, pricing the X70 at about £490, which is not far off its launch price – an indication of how highly regarded it is.

Fujifilm XF 10 Review

If you want to save cash, the XF10 makes a lot of sense. If you don’t think you’ll be too bothered by the tilting screen, and can live without the better handling of the X70, then you’ll be rewarded with very similar image quality.

Tempted?

Fujifilm GFX100

Capturing and recording precious moments in ultimate quality, FUJIFILM are delighted to introduce the GFX100: a camera of unparalleled innovation and versatility

The camera is equipped with a 100MP, 55mm diagonal length large format sensor.  Combined with fast and accurate AF phase detection, 4K video and in-body stabilisation, the FUJIFILM GFX100 offers the highest class resolution in the history of mirrorless digital cameras.

Fujifilm GFX100

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is delighted to announce the release of the GFX100 mirrorless digital camera featuring a newly developed 102 megapixels (approx. 55mm diagonal length) large format sensor.  The new camera will be the flagship model of the GFX system of mirrorless digital cameras, which have consistently received strong praise from professional photographers and photo enthusiasts for their use of a 43.8mm x 32.9mm large format sensor, which is approximately 1.7 times larger than a 35mm ‘full frame’ sensor.

Fujifilm GFX100

The GFX100 features a “back illuminated sensor with phase detection pixels,” the first of its kind for image sensors larger than the 35mm full frame format. Autofocus speed is up to twice as fast as previous GFX models (when using the GF63mmF2.8 lens), whilst also offering Tracking AF on a moving subject as well as more accurate Continuous AF.

Another world’s first for larger than the 35mm full-frame format cameras is the in-body image stabilization (IBIS), delivering “five-axis image stabilisation” of up to 5.5 stops*1 As a result, ultra high resolution photography can even be achieved when shooting hand held. The video capability has also been greatly improved from the current GFX 50S and GFX 50R models, to become the world’s first mirrorless digital camera with an image sensor of this size or greater to offer 4K30p video recording capability (10bit 4:2:2).

Fujifilm GFX100

With these three “world’s first” features, the GFX100 is a camera of unparalleled innovation and versatility, fulfilling its purpose of “capturing and recording precious moments that will never be repeated again” at the highest image quality possible in a mirrorless camera.

Main features

(1) 102MP approx. 55mm diagonal length large format image sensor

・The new sensor, specifically developed for this camera, measures approx. 55mm diagonally and boasts an effective pixel count of approx. 102 million. When combined with the fourth generation “X-Processor 4” processor, it delivers the world’s highest level of image quality with exceptional colour reproduction unique to FUJIFILM and the ultra sharp “FUJINON GF lenses”.

・The sensor has 3.76 million phase detection pixels across the surface (approx. 100% coverage) enabling fast and accurate AF regardless of where a subject is within the frame. This sets a completely new standard in the dynamic mobility of large format mirrorless digital cameras.

・The sensor’s “back illuminated” structure receives a greater amount of light accurately whilst achieving better noise performance. The sensor has lower noise, greater dynamic range and faster readout despite the higher pixel count.

(2)  The world’s first five-axis IBIS in a cameras featuring an image sensor larger than the 35mm format

・Generally speaking, the higher the pixel count an image sensor has, the higher the likelihood of camera shake. To avoid this threat to image quality, FUJIFILM has designed an IBIS system specifically for the new 102MP large format sensor which gives up to 5.5 stops of image stabilization (when using the GF63mmF2.8 R WR).

・The IBIS sensor shift mechanism ensures images are stabilized not only against pitch and yaw movements (up / down and right / left tilting) but also against shift (horizontal) and roll (rotational) movements.

・The entire shutter unit is suspended using four springs to minimize the effect of shutter shock. This dramatically broadens the scope of situations where you can shoot hand held with the GFX100 and still enjoy exceptionally high resolution, to push the boundaries in photography.

Fujifilm GFX100

(3)  The world’s first 4K30p video recording capability among consumer mirrorless digital cameras with a sensor bigger than the 35mm format

・The combination of the new image sensor with high speed readout and the high performance fourth generation “X-Processor 4” engine has given the camera the ability to record 4K30p video (10bit 4:2:2 externally and 10bit 4:2:0 internally), a world’s first amongst large-format consumer mirrorless digital cameras carrying a sensor bigger than the 35mm format.

・When the standard digital cinema format (17:9) is selected, the GFX100 records video with a sensor area measuring 43.8mm (W) x 23.19mm (H) and 49.56mm diagonally. This is larger than many high end cinema cameras in recent years, making it easier than ever before to shoot high quality video with shallow depth of field, wide tonal range and high ISO sensitivity. The GFX100 produces footage with more detailed textures whilst reproducing three dimensional definitions and the very atmosphere of the scene.

・The GFX100 uses oversampling with the data equivalent to approx. 50.5 megapixels to render video. It also supports the highly efficient H.265/HEVC codec, as well as “F-Log” which has a gamma curve with a wide dynamic range and the “Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG)” for recording HDR footage with ease. The GFX100 is also the first model in the GFX System to incorporate the “ETERNA” cinema film simulation mode, delivering optimum solutions that reflect videographer’s intentions and facilitates a variety of creative expressions.

(4)  Dust-resistant, weather-resistant, lightweight and highly robust magnesium alloy body with integrated vertical grip

・Despite featuring a sensor which is 1.7 times larger than a 35mm full frame sensor, the GFX100’s body is equivalent to that of a flagship 35mm full frame DSLR camera in terms of dimensions (156.2mm (W) x 163.6mm (H) x 102.9mm (D), measuring 48.9mm at the thinnest part) and weight (approx. 1400g including two batteries, memory card and EVF).

・The GFX100 is the first FUJIFILM mirrorless digital camera to incorporate an integrated vertical grip. This has led to a thinner form factor that is comfortable to hold in your hand, despite accommodating IBIS and two batteries in the body.

・In order to maximize the capabilities of the 102MP image sensor, the GFX100’s “core imaging unit” which consists of the lens mount, image stabilization mechanism and image sensor, is as isolated from the main body panels as much as possible. This “double structure” design ensures a high level of precision and robustness while minimizing any loss in image quality caused by external stress to the body.

・Weather sealing is applied to 95 locations across the camera body to achieve an advanced level of dust- and moisture-resistance, so that the camera maintains reliable operation even in the toughest conditions.

Fujifilm GFX100

(5)  Enhanced operability and versatile information displays

・The GFX100 features a 1.80 inch sub LCD monitor on the top panel and a 2.05 inch sub monitor on the rear panel for even more versatile information display. They show EXIF data, histogram and camera settings in large text. Various information can be allocated to each of the monitors (EVF, rear-panel LCD displays and top-panel sub LCD display) to make the viewfinder less cluttered and easier to use. This ensures clear information visibility when tethered shooting or when the camera has to be placed in a position that makes it difficult to see the viewfinder or either monitors. Furthermore, for users who prefer dial based operations, a characteristic of previous GFX cameras, the GFX100 has a “Virtual Dial Mode,” which displays the image of a dial on the top panel sub LCD monitor that can be rotated and adjusted with the front and back Command Dials.

・Buttons and levers for camera operations have been kept to a minimum for simple and easy to understand handling, whilst ensuring that you can hold the camera comfortably in the hand. On the left shoulder of the camera body is the Drive Mode Dial, which enables instantaneous switchover between Still Image, Video and Multiple Exposure modes. You can store camera settings for each of the modes (exposure settings, white balance, Film Simulation, etc.). Even when you need to shoot both stills and video in a single session, it only requires just a single dial movement to recall your preferred camera settings.

(6)  76 million dot EVF with 100% coverage and 2.36 million dot tilting 3.2-inch LCD display

・The GFX100 inherits GFX 50S’s popular detachable EVF system that can be adjusted to various angles when using the EVF Tilting Adapter EVF-TL1. The world’s highest resolution 5.76 million dot OLED panel has been used to develop the GFX100 high definition EVF unit. The viewfinder has a magnification of 0.86x and contains five optical glass elements including aspherical elements and has been specifically designed for the 102MP sensor, which requires extreme focusing accuracy.

・The EVF can be set to the “Frame Rate Priority,” “Resolution Priority” or “AF Speed Priority” mode according to subject characteristics and the needs of the photographer.

・The rear panel monitor uses a 3.2 inch 2.36 million dot touchscreen LCD that can be tilted to three directions.

(7)  High speed and high precision phase detection AF that sets a new standard for large-format cameras with a sensor larger than the 35mm format  

・The GFX100 is the first model in the GFX System that uses our phase detection AF algorithm, adopted from the fourth generation X Series cameras (X-T3 and X-T30), and which is praised for its precision and speed. The algorithm makes full use of 3.76 million phase detection pixels, placed across the entire sensor, to set a new standard in AF speed and precision for large format cameras performing the standard “Single Point” AF as well as “Zone” and “Wide Tracking” AF. The effect is particularly noticeable when using prime lenses with a heavy set of focus lens elements, achieving speed improvement of up to 210% over the conventional contrast AF system.

・At the same time, the GFX100 boasts dramatic improvement in the accuracy of Face and Eye Detection AF, which has become an essential feature for fashion and portrait photographers. The Face Detection function now works at a greater shooting distance, and shows significant improvement in tracking the side profile of a person or when a person moves erratically within the frame, while also maintaining focus on a subject that goes behind an obstacle.

(8)  Unique colour reproduction technology, developed through our history in photographic film to deliver astonishing quality in stills

・The combination of the newly developed image sensor and the fourth generation “X-Processor 4” processing engine means the camera also supports “16-bit RAW” mode, requested by many professional photographers. The GFX100 also supports 16-bit TIFF in camera file conversion. The ultra high 100MP+ resolution and rich colour and tonal reproduction found in our “Film Simulation” modes, significantly boosts photo data’s post processing tolerance, meeting the diverse needs of professional photographers.

・The GFX100 also features a “Smooth Skin Effect” function, which automatically smooths the skin tones, a function often performed in post processing when shooting portraiture.

(9)  Various other new functions and features

・The GFX100 can accommodate two NP-T125 batteries, extending the number of frames per charge to approx. 800 when the rear LCD is used.

・The camera can be powered and charged through the USB-C connection. Connecting an external battery that supports USB Power Delivery enables even longer continuous shooting and simultaneous charging of the two batteries in the camera.

・This is the first GFX Series model that has a supports IEEE802.11ac 5GHz, enabling even faster wireless image transfer.

・Similarly to previous GFX models, the GFX100 is compatible with “Tether Shooting Plug-in PRO for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®” and “Capture One Pro FUJIFILM” for RAW processing and tethered shooting to accommodate the workflow of any professional photographers.


Creating Gotham

Tanya discusses her passion for photography that inspired her to capture the Fujiholics Website Gallery Admin Choice image for April 2019

The XT1 totally changed the way I shot, moved, even approached people.

I am a Canadian who has lived in MX for 7 years.  I have loved photography for as long as I can remember and would categorize myself as an advanced/ enthusiastic amateur.  In the past I shot with several Nikons but  began to feel that they were too heavy and cumbersome for my style of photography.  I wanted a camera that was smaller and easy to use.  About 6 years ago I purchased the XT1 and it was love at first touch.  The XT1 totally changed the way I shot, moved, even approached people.  It was such a joy to have everything I needed on top of the camera, all the adjustments are there and so easy.  I have since purchased the XT3, which I am enjoying  and prefer to use prime lenses except for the awesome kit 18-55 kit lens.  Fuji cameras are also really COOL looking.  In the past I shot RAW but the jpegs are really good, so now that’s my choice.   I shoot manual with auto focus and try to get the best shots I can with my camera.  The XT1 and XT3 are fabulous cameras and I would encourage anyone who is thinking switching to check one out. I also use the X70 which is super compact and so discreet.

My approach to photography is quite simple. . .  I try to be in the moment and go with the attitude that anything is possible if I am aware and open.  I try and shoot 3-4 times a week, sometimes I walk for 30 minutes and other times for a few hours.  Living in Central Mexico has provided unlimited opportunities, culturally, visually and spiritually.  I have always shot in colour but recently have challenged myself to work in B&W.  I would say my style of photography is “street” and “street portraits”.  I love to photograph people,  I actually NEED to photograph people!  There is something inside of me that just wants to express this.  Sometimes I will ask permission to photograph a person and other times no.  I never get tired of seeing a new and interesting person.

I photograph for me,  it’s my passion and my pleasure.  I have never sold my work but I do print it large for viewing in my home.  Street photography is not for everyone but for me it’s a true joy!

Creating a Flash of Red

Craig explains how he captured the Fujiholics Website Gallery Admin Choice image for March 2019

On a rare sunny day in March, in Manchester I took my trusted Fuji X100F out at lunch time for my usual street photography wander.

The sun was so strong that the shadows were unavoidable.

I have seen endless photos of this particular archway in St Peters Square, so usually avoid it as a place of interest. However, on approaching it this day the sun was so strong that the shadows were unavoidable. I tried a few angles before deciding on the one I wanted (framing with the shadows) and waited. Its a busy entrance with people walking in and out all the time, then a lady appeared dressed in red and stopped (hurrah) so it was just a case of waiting for the exact moment when no one else was in the frame. I reckon I waited around 20 minutes before I got the shot, but it was well worth it and hopefully adds something to the huge collection of photos at this location.

My general style of photography is street, and anything that contains people or a story. My X100F is always in my bag (and usually my hand). Feel free to add me @stickboypics on instagram.


Creating Shingle Street

Scott explains how he captured the Fujiholics Website Gallery Admin Choice image for February 2019

This image was captured on a second holiday to Suffolk visiting family. I had researched the area and intended visiting Shingle Street on my previous trip but didn’t get around to it due to family commitments. This time I had set aside half a day purely for photography and the weather was pretty flat, which suited the image I had in mind.

My wife and I arrived at around 1 o’clock, parked up, wrapped up and went for a wander with the cameras, me with my xPro2 and the fantastic 16mm f1.4 and Karen with her X-30. Progress was slow on the deep shingle but we made it down to the edge of the lagoon and, after watching the kite surfers enjoying the wind and sheltered water for a few minutes, I started looking for compositions.

The shingle shifts constantly with large storms changing the landscape completely, moving lagoons and the shape of the coast.

This results in clean graphic shapes, which I wanted to capture. To accentuate these I used my 10 stop ND filter to slow my shutter speed and smooth out the water in contrast to the textured shingle.

Landscape and street are my escape from the type of photography I shoot at work as a Scene Examiner. I studied photography in Glasgow after leaving school, 3 decades ago now, and then worked in a studio for a few years. That’s when started my current career. I don’t get out to shoot for myself as often as I would like so try to make the most of it when I can.

My personal images are on my Instagram feed @soco_bloke (you’d only see my other photography if you were a jury member!).


New Fujifilm X-T30 Announced

The X-T30 is equipped with a host of new functions, making it a small yet powerful companion for any photographer.

It offers outstanding performance, utilizing the 4th Generation image sensor and processor which also includes 26.1 megapixel resolution and fast high-performance AF.  In addition, phase detection pixels are now across the entire frame (100%). Other advanced features include a Focus Lever for shifting a focus point easily, a new intuitive touch-screen panel with improved response, and an improved body design that has offers better holding stability to ensure comfortable shooting even with larger lenses.

 

The AF algorithm has been improved from that used in the renowned FUJIFILM X-T3 to deliver even more advanced AF-tracking performance. This includes enhanced accuracy in face / eye detection and the introduction of a Face Select function to provide priority auto-focus on a selected subject.

 

This evolution of AF performance is available not only with still photos but also during video filming. Improved exposure stability during face / eye AF and face recognition in the AF-C (continuous AF) mode adds to ease of use. Video performance itself has also been enhanced, offering high-resolution audio recording and smooth 4K/30P video recording.

 

As a result of the above developments, the camera appeals to a broader range of users from professional photographers to first time beginners, by being always able to deliver premium quality pictures with ease, regardless of experience.

 

Main features

 

  1. Compact and lightweight camera body, designed for comfort with advanced handling

―The compact and lightweight camera body, weighing just 383g, is designed for enhanced stability when holding the camera. The use of the Focus Lever, replacing the Selector Buttons, allows for extra grip space at the rear for added comfort.

―The rear LCD monitor is thinner by 1.3mm and offers improved touchscreen response. It complements the Focus Lever to achieve faster and more intuitive camera operation.

―The X-T30 is available in the popular black, premium silver and a new color, charcoal silver. The charcoal silver will be launched on May, two months after the launch of black and silver.

 

  1. The X-T30 features the 4th generation image sensor, X Trans CMOS 4, and image processing engine, X Processor 4, to deliver the still photographing performance equivalent to that of the FUJIFILM X-T3.

―Despite its compact and lightweight body, the camera has 26.1 megapixel resolution, one of the highest among APS-C sensor digital cameras, as well as exceptional low noise performance and outstanding color reproduction.

―The lowest native sensitivity is ISO 160, previously only available as extended ISO, is now available when shooting RAW.

―FUJIFILM’s exclusive Film Simulations now include ETERNA mode. This camera also incorporates numerous shooting functions that broaden your ability to customize your pictures, such as “monochrome adjustments” available for ACROS and Monochrome, and “Color Chrome” effect that produces deeper colors and gradations.

 

  1. New AF system that is great in low light conditions and when tracking fast-moving subjects

―The number of phase detection pixels on the X-Trans CMOS 4 image sensor has been increased to 2.16 million, about 4 times that of X-Trans CMOS 3 models. The on-sensor phase detection AF area now covers the entire frame (approx. 100%), making it possible to quickly and accurately focus on a subject anywhere in the frame.

―The low light limit for phase detection AF has been expanded from +0.5EV to -3EV, making it possible to autofocus in very poor lighting such as at night or under dim light, such as candles.

―Combined with the X-T3, X-T30 boasts the best AF performance and functionality of any X Series camera, combining fast image processing with the X-Processor 4 engine and AF algorithm enhancement to boost accuracy in face / eye detection. The Face Select function has been also introduced to provide priority autofocus on a selected person when multiple faces have been detected within a frame.

 

The performance of the Advanced SR Auto mode has been improved in line with the enhancement of the camera’s AF performance. In this mode, the camera automatically chooses the optimum shooting settings for a given scene from 58 presets, so you can achieve the best image quality without having to worry about any of the settings.

 

  1. Enhanced video functionality

― The X-T30 has more advanced 4K/30P video functionality, ability to record high resolution audio without requiring additional equipment and eye tracking functionality during video recording.

― The X-T30 records in 6K (6240×3510) to produce stunning quality in 4K (3810×2160). The camera also supports the DCI format (17:9), which gives an even more cinematic look to your videos.

―The Film Simulation modes can be applied not only when shooting stills but also while recording video, including the “ETERNA” motion picture emulator.

―4K/30P video can be recorded at 4:2:0 8bit to an SD card. F-log recording and 4:2:2 10bit via the HDMI port capabilities means the camera can record video suitable for more serious videographers
