Jan 202014



Now it is official, on 28th of January Fuji will release a new mirrorless camera: Fuji X-T1.

We are not sure about the specs but on sites like fuji rumours there are a lot of informations about this wonderful camera.

Weather sealed, super fast autofocus, big and great EVF, much better AF tracking, and hi iso capability (51200 if we believe the rumors).

I think Fuji X-T1, even if is not the X-PRO1 successor it will temper the expectation of the much awaited successor.

There are almost two years since Fuji X-PRO1 hit the market. Soon we will find out if Fuji X-T1 is the best mirrorless camera on the market.

Retro mirrorless cameras are quite popular these days.

At the beginning of 2012 Fuji announced X-Pro1 (January) and Olympus the OM-D E-M5 (february). Later, the X-E1, and in 2013 X-e2, Olympus OM-D E-M1, and Panasonic GX7 followed the retro-styled trend.

Even Nikon launched a full-frame retro looking dslr (Nikon DF).

I believe that this retro looking style will continue in 2014 too.

There are rumors on the internet (http://www.fujirumors.com/weather-sealed-x-with-better-af-than-x-e2/) that Fuji will launch at the beginning of 2014 a new mirrorless camera, probably a retro looking design too.

Maybe Sony, that has always a modern look (NEX series) will consider this direction too. I think the center viewfinder of Sony A7 is looking a little retro.

And there are on the market a lot of accessories (like soft buttons or leather half-cases) that will make your digital camera look like a film SLR.

If Fuji and Olympus were pioneers of the camera „fashion”  (if I may say so), I believe that in 2014 we will see more retro-styled mirrorless cameras.

Excepting the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 most of the mirrorless cameras do not have a great grip.

Fuji X-E1/E2 is not the most comfortable to use.

Wide angle lens are well known for architecture or landscape photography allowing you more scene in the picture. In other words, you can capture more elements in your image.

On DSLR cameras like Nikon,  Canon or Sony you have some options for wide angle lenses, Sigma also produces a 10-20mm that works for all three brands mentioned above.

The main difference between a 10mm wide angle and 8 or 10 mm fish-eye lens is that the first one does not produce so much and, sometimes disturbing, distortion.

Until now Fuji mirrorless cameras users had a few choices for wide angle photography: Zeiss 12mm, Fuji 14mm, or the fish-eye 8mm manual focus from Samyang. But now Fuji users have this opportunity. FUJINON XF10-24mmF4 R OIS – equivalent to 15-36mm in 35mm format.

Do you wounder how it will look on your camera? Here are a images from Fuji`s press release.
