Fujifilm CP+ 2017 Booth Photos

Optyczne.pl has a few photos from the showroom floor at CP+ 2017. The Fujifilm GFX 50S had 70 minute wait, just to play with the camera for 10 minutes and Fujifilm had a pretty cool Fujifilm X-T2 cinematography rig setup on the floor. The Fujinon 18-55mm T2.9 MK and MK 50-135 mm T2.9 were also on display.

DPReview: CP+ 2017 Fujifilm Interview

DPReview sat down with Fujifilm executives, Toshihisa Iida, (general manager of Fujifilm’s Optical Device and Electronic Imaging Products Division), Makoto Oishi, (manager of Fujifilm’s Sales and Marketing Group, Optical Device and Electronic Imaging Products division), and Shinichiro Udono, (Senior Manager for the Sales and Marketing Group of the Optical Device and Electronic Imaging Division) at CP+. The interview covers Fujifilm’s new range of cameras and Cine lenses. Below are some bullet points from their interview.

  • GFX Lenses are designed for phase detection
  • GFX life cycle should be longer than APS-C
  • Requests for 70-200/200-300 and ultra wide on GFX
  • Mirrorless should surpass traditional during the next generation of cameras
  • E/X-mount MK lenses will be optically similar
  • X100F improved for one handed operation
  • X100F didn’t change 23mm lens to keep size down
  • X-Trans will remain in APS-C cameras
  • GFX unlikely to go X-Trans because of 20-30% increase in processing requirement
  • Still talking about a possible GFX Rangefinder style camera

I really hope we see a Fujifilm GFX100 in the future. It would be great for them to design an ultra compact medium format camera for street shooting with a 35mm f/2 or f/4 lens. Priced around $3000-4000 it would be a great value camera like the X100 series.

Photographers are excited about the Fujifilm GFX 50S and it shows from all the great blog posts out there. We are less than a week away from the first cameras shipping and there is an avalanche of content to share. The Fujifilm GFX Owners Group is becoming active with people sharing their photos and articles in addition to sending content directly to me to share, so be sure to join us there.

DPReview – 32 new sample JPEG and RAW. It sounds like DPReview is ramping up their coverage and getting ready to start their full on review. In their words “CP+ 2017: You want a Fujifilm GFX 50S (and we have the shots to prove it).” Sounds like they are impressed.

Gritty Monkey – Covered the Fujikina 2017 event. There wasn’t a lot of content from this event, but he has a great Fujifilm X-T2/GFX 50S comparison photo in his article.

Charlenewinfred – I shared this post first in our Fujifilm GFX Owners Group, but decided to share it here too.

Gardnercreative – Long time medium format shooter comes away impressed with the Fujifilm GFX 50S. Very interesting article with a few videos including a time-lapse.

Ioannis Tsouloulis – Has lots of unprocessed and processed photos along with 100% views of them to share. Lots of amazing detail not to be missed. Some of these files have been in the Fujifilm GFX Owners Group for a few days now.

Akpo – If you are wondering how 35mm lenses adapt to the Fujifilm GFX then Akpo has a lot of downloadable test shots showing what you can expect. He tests the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM, Canon 24mm f/3.5L TS-E II, Canon 135mm f/2.0L USM, Porst 50mm f/1.7 Macro, and Canon 24mm f/3.5L TS-E II, full vertical shift (12mm).

An Ethereal Fujifilm X-T IR Project: Using The Fujifilm X-T1 IR and X-T2 IR


image courtesy of Tomasz Lazar

A few months ago I met Tomasz Lazar at the Miami Street Photography Festival and he was working on some interesting projects at that time. He’s a very talented photographers and I have followed him since, but his latest project was published in “An Ethereal Forest Where Japanese Commit Suicide” for national geographic.

I recalled his use of the Fujifilm X-T1 IR for this project and wanted to verify some information before sharing the article, but when I did he brought up an additional detail, Fujifilm prepared a Fujifilm X-T2 IR for him. I asked him if I could share the details and will alter my post if anything changes, but he described the setup as “Fujifilm Japan prepared for me camera with special sensor. The same was with the XT1 IR. Probably it will be possible to buy soon. I was using both cameras with IR filters also on them.”

This is great news for IR Photography fans. I was really interested in picking up a Fujifilm X-T1 IR for personal use, but was waiting for a price drop or an X-T2 IR. Lets hope that Fujifilm decided to sell these cameras to the public a little bit quicker than they did the original Fujifilm X-T1 IR. Anyway make sure to check out “An Ethereal Forest Where Japanese Commit Suicide” and follow Tomasz Lazar.
