Despite many a rumor of a new X-Series camera coming at CES, Fuji didn’t have a brand new shooter up its sleeve — at least not that we know of. Instead, the company is debuting the much-requested all-black version of the X100s, and a super fast “portrait perfect” XF 56mm f/1.2R premium lens. Read more…

Fuji Announces New 10-24mm f/4 Lens, the Widest Lens in the X-Mount Family

One of the common complaints people hesitant to switch to mirrorless systems have is that there just isn’t enough glass for this that or the other mount.

How the Fujifilm X-Series Made Me Feel Inadequate

Recently there’s been a fair bit of hullaballoo about these new cameras Fuji has been bringing out – the X-series. X100, X-Pro 1, XE-1 and most recently the X-M1 or something like that. All touted as great cameras – the perfect blend of retro styling and cutting edge sensor technology, paring away anything extraneous to the act of shooting.

The Fuji X series – peerless walk-around cameras that can be adapted for wedding work, editorial work heck, even commercial work. Photography bloggers whom I respect and admire all clambered over each other to shout the praises of these lightweight wonder-cameras. They could do no wrong on the digital camera review sites, and quickly developed a cult following which exploded into a massive fanbase. The Fuji X-series. Messianic.

Photos and a Press Release Detailing the Upcoming Entry-Level Fuji X-A1 Leaked

fujixa1leak1

Up till now, we hadn’t heard much in way of specs for Fuji’s rumored entry-level X-Series camera, the X-A1. We knew it was going to be a step down from the X-M1 and a step up from the X100, and we’d seen a questionable picture, but that was it.

A Czech site changed all that yesterday, however, when they accidentally published both a press release and more photos of the upcoming shooter. Read more…
