Filter Choices for Fujicron Lenses

Filter Choices for Fujicron Lenses

My first look into landscape photography scared me away from the genre entirely. Why? The price of filters! It feels like everyone on camera forums has a full set of the best Lee Filters, alongside a tripod and head that cost more than my car. If you’re a professional, buying these can make sense. For the amateur with a limited budget, one has to make some trade-offs. Now I know there are…

First Impressions: Fuji ‘Fujicron’ XF50mm f2

~updated Mar 8~ With the all hype surrounding Fuji’s recent releases–a new medium format camera, an upgrade to the X100 series, the new X-T20–the news of a 50mm  lens went largely unnoticed.

Blue Hour with the Fuji 23mm f2

Blue hour is my favorite time to take long exposures. As the sun drops below the horizon, the sky turns a deep blue as the city turns on its lights. The weather and my schedule were clear, so I headed to Seattle’s Gasworks Park to freeze my butt off for an hour.

Will the next Fujicron be the 18mm Mark II?

Fujifilm is pretty good about keeping us in-the-loop about upcoming lenses with their Lens Roadmap. Now that the 3rd ‘Fujicron’ lens (the 50mmf2) is due to ship at the end of this month, we’re wondering what the next compact f2 prime will be.

What’s a Fujicron???

Talk to any long time Fuji shooter, and you’ll hear a love story about the first time they used an X100, or maybe the X-Pro1. With a dreamy look in their eye, they’ll talk about how the small size and physical controls made them shoot more, and how incredible the images were.
