Fujifilm X-Pro1 camera preview @ Engadget

"In many ways, the X-Pro1 is simply an updated X100 with the incredible benefit of an interchangeable lens mount. To the untrained eye, the bodies look nearly identical, with a similar construction and finish, familiar dial location and control layout, and even a hybrid viewfinder and full-size flash mount. Though it has a similar height, the X-Pro1 is noticeably wider . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 field review @ SeriousCompacts

"The ⅔” EXR 12MP CMOS sensor and the EXR processor in this machine work together brilliantly! A bit larger than sensors in other compacts (except for those like the Fujifilm X100, Sigma DP line and Leica X1 that feature APS-C sized sensors), but a fair amount smaller than m4/3 sensors, I am amazed at its ability to handle low light, high ISO situations. Part of that success comes from the processor’s ability to combine pixels, which can be used to either . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ DigitalTrends

"The X-series from Fujifilm are fickle beasts. If you can tame them, work with them and not against them, you will take home stunning images. And these two devices arguably produce the best point-and-shoot photography (and this isn’t just when pitting them against pocket cams, but higher end cameras as well). However you simply cannot pick up the X10, start shooting, and expect to get everything you can out of the camera. . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review by Ken Rockwell

"The Fuji X10 is a solid little jewel of precision. Its zoom control brilliantly eliminates the need for that stupid power switch! Real cameras don't have power switches.The X10 has real strap lugs, much better than most point-and-shoot cameras, so it's always around your neck ready to shoot.The biggest potential gotcha is protecting the lens. . . . read more

Travel Zoom Shootout @ Imaging-Resource

"Smartphones have punched a hole in many product categories, not the least of which is the simple pocket digital camera. Still, one category of pocket digital camera that's not withered is the pocket long zoom, or travel zoom, and and quite a few players have joined the category in the last few years. As ubiquitous as they are, smartphone cameras can't pretend to zoom to even 3x optically, let alone compete with the 12-18x optical zooms we've gathered for our Travel-Zoom Shootout. . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ Cnet.uk

Rumor: Fujifilm interested in buying Olympus

Oh, boy, the old mill is gearing up. The idea is not bad however, if the price is right Fujifilm will be able to she-horn itself back into the game without much sweat:

"A sale would mean a restructured and likely unrecognizable Olympus. Its technology would be woven into Fujifilm (or Ricoh or wherever it’s purchased), and anyone’s . . . read more

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review @ DJP

This camera is actually a modified Nikon D200, from the time before the social networks terrorized the net and the global economy was on the upswing. So why is it still sold and bought? Here's why:

"Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ Cnet.com

FTA: "There are two ways to look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10. You can view it as a cynical attempt to capitalize on the fanboy frenzy of the X100 with a camera that looks a lot like it, but that lacks everything that made it desirable to the fans. . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ Pocket-Lint

"The camera's ISO auto setting is limited to ISO 3200 maximum, but we’d be happy to use the results from any of these given sensitivities. It’s not often a compact camera can live up to those standards. ISO 4000-6400 is only available at 6-megapixels in size, while ISO 12,800 can only be . . . read more

Fujifilm X10 review @ TrustedReviews

Is this little beauty the Area 51 of cameras? Well, if it makes you see white disks: "And so to the one major chink in the X10’s otherwise impenetrable armour: the widely reported appearance of ugly white discs in place of specular highlights. To be honest, in the hundreds of test images we took with the X10 we only

DC watch: The 10 most important cameras of 2009

The Google translation says "most historical", and we can't quite make out some of the orther stuff, but the camera models selected speak for themselves. One interesting tidbit is the medium format film camera among the 10, and also the complete lack of any Canon models. As an added bonus they list the most historical cameras of the past 10 years too:

Fujifilm FinePix F60fd Camera Review @ Ephotozine

f60fdOh Fujifilm no more Mr. nice noise guy? Quote: "It's such a shame to see the Fuji camera having problems with noise because they led the way in image technology with the release of the SuperCCD. It seems the hexagonal pixels aren't pulling their weight now and I think Fuji need to address the problem.

Film price to go up, way up

Too bad these things expire so soon, otherwise some hoarding would be a nice move for the film-lovers left among us.  Not only is the smaller production driving up prices, but, as  we know the basic raw material that film is made of is mineral oil, and with the price of oil currently staying at an all time high the price of film will soon have to follow suit.  And to add insult to the injury, the price of silver, a raw material basic to the post-processing of film is also hitting peak. The consumers first contact with this new reality was the confirmation from Fujifilm UK regarding a 5-10% increase of film-prices.

Flare

Flare is caused when bright light (like direct Sunlight) hits the lens and then is reflected either by the inside of the lens barrel, or by dust, water or other contaminants on the lens surface. This scattered light produces bright patches on the image reducing contrast across the entire picture. Lens coating is a good way to reduce flare, and in conjunction with a good lens hood the amount of flare is reduced considerably.
