Firmware for X-Pro1 | Fujifilm Global

The new firmware version 2.0 for the Fuji X-Pro1 is released. It makes the auto focus and the manual focus of the Fuji X-Pro1 faster and more reliable. In my reviews of the manual focus for the X-Pro1, I stated that the manual focus lag with the focus by wire focusing ring was unusable. After updating the firmware I’ve got to say that is is much improved and has gone leaps and bounds toward true geared manual focus but still falls short. There is a different feeling when using a manual geared focusing mechanism. Maybe its the feel of the […]

New Fujinon XF Lenses this fall!

June 26, 2012, Fuji Film announces 2 new lenses coming this fall of 2012. A 14mm F2.8 (21mm equivalent) and a 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 OIS (27mm-84mm equivalent) standard zoom. I’m so happy to see that Fuji Film is investing in the future of the X Pro system and expanding the lens line up to 10 lenses by the end of 2013. This system is an amazing performer and having options of the type of modern lenses as well as the ability to use Legacy lenses or Lenses with different mounts via adapters solidifies this systems mark on the photo industry. With […]

New MacBook Pros with Retina Display

Apple recently release the New MacBook Pro with Retina Display! It has a resolution of 2880×1800 so this should be great for photographers because you will be able to see more pixels per square inch, making editing, color corrections and retouching, all much much easier! Can’t wait to see it in action! When you pack over 5 million pixels into a 15.4-inch display, the results are positively stunning. The pixel density is so high, your eyes can’t discern individual pixels. Images take on a new level of realism and text is pin sharp. And with a 2880-by-1800 resolution, you can […]

Nikon's Longest Zoom

If the performance of this lens is good you may not need to carry around another lens at all. Good for stills and video, and made for a DX sensor. Man this seems like a dream. There must be a catch right?? Under 1k? Seems pretty reasonable. I will be investigating this much further. This would be great as a wedding setup. You’d never have to change a lens and you’d be ready for anything. Building on the popularity and versatility of Nikon’s telephoto zoom lens lineup which includes both the NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 and 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lenses, the […]

Sony NEX-7 with Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN Lens A friend in Hong Kong “Spike” has posted a review of the Sony NEX-7 with Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN Lens. Link; Here’s an excerpt: To my eyes, F5.6 is pretty sharp there, F8 is okay-ish, and then it starts to drop off till it’s seriously fuzzy at F22. But all in all, for a lens that costs around US$200, I’d say the overall results are quite impressive. I’d say for $200.00 its a pretty darn good deal. But I personally wonder if you gain that much with this lens as opposed […]

Fuji X-Pro-1 - Unboxing

Fuji X-Pro-1 – Unboxing Fuji X-Pro-1 Body It’s interesting to note that the packaging for the Fuji x-pro 1 is not as nice in my opinion then the Fuji X1oo. The packaging for the x100 was something of a collector’s camera with the faux velvet where the camera sits and the box lid that is held in with ribbon that’s more a kin to a presentation box. This camera is more expensive, similar quality, and the flag ship of the fuji line yet it has a more subdued packaging then the x100. That all being said, I don’t mind it […]

Sony NEX 7 unboxing

Finally, after a long long wait I got a hold of a Sony NEX 7 kit. Here are some pictures of the unboxing. Some items of note: the packaging is very well done. You even get a micro fiber cloth that has a NEX 7 tag on it. Wow fancy. I wonder how much of this the consumer is paying for in the price of the camera? Also, kit lens comes with a lens shade which is nice. Not a lot of kit lenses come with a lens shade. Its pretty nice and has a bayonet type twist on type. […]
