From what I’ve seen, the new Fuji Classic Negative film simulation is generous on the blue and green level, while remaining somewhat warm and keeping a low contrast.
It’s almost two years since the Fujifilm X-Pro2 was announced in January 2016. Since then, it’s become a much loved and well regarded camera for anybody who’s owned one. One of the big drawbacks, though, at least for those looking to mirrorless for video, is its lack of 4K video. Well, that’s about to change thanks to a new “Kaizen” firmware update.
Yes, that’s right, the X-Pro2 is getting 4K video, along with tethered shooting over USB or Wi-Fi, new AF tracking algorithm for moving subjects, Fujifilm X Raw Studio support for the Mac, improved wireless flash capability, and several other things.
Here’s a typical quick interior shoot for a Swiss brand called VIU Eyewear. They contacted me to create three images for their website/social networks. The only rule was to stay in the same style than their other images on their “Stores” page (something very simple, white and luminous with an emphasis on the store interior design). Here’s how I shot it and edited it.
Most professional wedding photographers are not thrilled when someone brings up mirrorless cameras. I understand – the concept is relatively new, and there may be some distrust towards these cameras’ performance. Especially in demanding conditions such as shooting a wedding. But an example by Kevin Mullins proves them wrong. He shot an entire wedding with a Fujifilm X-Pro2 and published a video which may break down misconceptions.
