Fujifilm X-T20


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/FF260010r.JPG

Having being enchanted by the Fujifilm X-T1 and X-T10, I was really looking forward to purchasing the X-T2 when it came out. Come to think of it I was also looking forward to the Olympus E-M1 II. However, as I realized what the manufacturers were charging for these engineering marvels I sat down and thought it all through again.

The X-T2 is retailing presently in Germany at €1700 and the Olympus E-M1 II is at a ...

My Favourite Kit Lenses


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/pana14-45.jpg

Every manufacturer bring their cameras to market with a standard (normally sub-par) kit lens. Normally I discard these as “not-up-to-my-standard” and they end up in a corner somewhere. The only reason I get some of these lenses is when I can’t find a body only offer but sometimes these lenses surprise me with their image quality. Some of them are not to be discarded as I stated above, “sub-par”.

There are times a lens comes out ...

My X-Mount Lens Solution (Partly Solved)


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/Fuji_price_hike.JPG

My last post was just me philosophising a little about what X-Mount lenses to buy or not. I still haven’t acquired the Fujinon 10-24 f4 because it’s just too expensive. Can’t justify it, and if I personally say that about a lens then it’s got to be serious. It doesn't mean that I've given up on that lens though, it's just on hold.

 

I decided to go another route with my X-Mount lenses with ...

Fujifilm Announcements


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/xt2s.jpg

With the announcement of the Fuji X-T2 things have got interesting again in the Fujifilm world. Why? Because of the little joystick at the back of the camera. Simple as that. I have the same thing on the back of the Sony A900 camera and it's something I appreciate very much, and something I use quite a bit. Only with the Fuji it's become more accurate as you have a lot more focusing points to ...

The Fujifilm Equipment Revival


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/Kassel/XT111105f.jpg

I've been neglecting my Fujifilm equipment of late as I've favoured my M43 systems, especially my Panasonic GM5 cameras and their extremely small lenses. However since I purchased the X-T10 as a backup camera for my X-T1 and being extremely impressed with the image quality I took my Fuji system for an extended weekend break. This is the first time I've actually only taken a Fuji system with me without a camera from another system.

Fujifilm X-T10 and the 18-55 f2.8-4.0 OIS "KIT LENS"


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/xt10.jpg

Many have called the X-T10 the X-T1’s brother and to be honest I have to agree with that comment. Image quality is the same, as the innards are really the same. There are a few points where the X-T1 has the upper hand over the X-T10 but it’s nothing really major. To me anyway. (E.G. Higher resolution EVF and magnification).

 

I find the body of the X-T10 to be quite small but if you ...
