Fujifilm GFX 50S Rooftopping, Demoing and Fujifilm X100F v Fujifilm X100S v Leica CL Side by Side


Art Basel and The Miami Stree Photography Festival are wrapping up as the weather takes a turn for the worse, unfortunately, none of my friends that were finalist won awards last night, but some of us did get out and shoot even though the weather was quite cold and rainy (it snowed in parts of FL last night). I decided to join Depot MSA and Mig for a brief walk around town, which lead to the image above. I was going to do a comparison shot with the Sony a7RIII, but I can only carry so much glass on me at one time and the Sony really doesn’t have a lens that compares to the Fujinon GF 23mm f/4, which is by far my favorite lens for the system.

Shooting the Fujifilm GFX 50S and Sony a7RIII side by side is very interesting and it makes me look forward to the system’s growth, because I pretty much grab the a7RIII from my bag when Fujifilm doesn’t have an equivalent lens. So far I am not hating the Sony a7RIII like some of my past Sony bodies, but it is a buggy camera compared to my polished Fujifilm cameras and when I put a big lens on the a7RIII my hand feels very cramped. It’s funny how easily people identified and dismissed the Sony, while photographers would ask about the GFX and want to try the camera. I would then offer to let them see the a7RIII and they showed no interest at all. Fujifilm needs a better presence in stores so photographers can get their hands on cameras like the GFX, because every photographer that tried my GFX said they would like to own one sooner rather than later, but previously had no plans to purchase.

The problem is there are a lot of preconceived notions about medium format and where it belongs. Photographers want to box it in and think about other things rather than explore the possibilities most of the time. Simply showing someone a photography isn’t enough, but handing them a camera with a fast focusing lens makes them quickly rethink where the system belongs in their life. The Fujifilm GFX can do just about anything if you are driven enough to find a way to use the camera, but it’s not like medium format used to be and it will only get better. Until then we have cameras like the Fujifilm X-T2, which just work and upcoming X-H1 and X-T3 to look forward too.

Fujifilm #X100F vs #100S vs #LeicaCL Silent #CameraPorn

A post shared by Louis Ferreira (@louiswferreira) on

Some of my friends have begun to open their eyes to the amazing cameras Fujifilm is producing so now when we get together there is, even more, Fujifilm gear to compare and above you can see how the Fujifilm X100S, X100F, and Leica CL compare size wise. I have to admit the Leica CL is more compact and has the Leica feel and look, but the interchangeable lens feels cheap when you take it off the body. It’s a fun compact camera and the EVF is fairly big and clear, but it’s a little laggy. The camera also focuses pretty well when there is light, but when lighting conditions are poor it is very slow to focus, but accurate.

Leica is doing some really interesting stuff design-wise with the CL, but I would take a X100F over the CL any day of the week. There simply is no comparison between the two systems and before you say wait the X100F isn’t interchangeable, the Fujifilm X-E3 is and it’s actually a little smaller in addition to being a better camera and having a huge lens selection. The only great thing you can really say about the CL beyond them getting the design right is that Leica finally made an APS-C camera that a photographer might want to own if they are into luxury goods, because the TL was uninspiring.

Lightroom Alternative: RAW Power For iOS Overview


DPReview published an overview of RAW Power for iOS after some blogs ignored its original release or miss reported it as old software when FujiAddict reported it, but the software is finally getting the attention it deserves. As one of the few alternatives available with an OSX and iOS application, RAW Power is uniquely positioned to replace Lightroom, especially for those that have a mixed tradition/mobile workflow. I have been juggling a lot of RAW editors and will be adding more to my list in the near future for a huge comparison.

While I really like apps like ON1 and Luminar 2018 I wish they had iOS components to compete with Adobe. So far none of the apps that I have used across platforms works entirely like I would expect and the SD Card reader for iPad could be more intuitive, but a work anywhere workflow is definitely the future of photograph, plus camera phones keep getting better and they even shoot RAW now. Building your solution to work across platforms form the start is just smart and RAW Power probably has the best implementation of this philosophy yet.

Fujifilm GFX50S v Leica S v Leica SL v Sony a7RIII Side by Side With The Best Fast Fifties Money Can Buy

The above photo isn’t something you get to see everyday in real life unless you work in the industry, but Leica and Leica Store Miami were great hosts for the Miami Street Photography Festival event Wednesday night and I really wanted to see how these systems compared with their best fast fifties attached. The size difference is pretty astounding in some ways if you think about how small the Leica S is with a mirror and large sensor and it really made me double down hard that the Leica SL should have had a medium format sensor inside.

The Fujifilm GFX and Leica SL are very close in size with the SL being a little smaller. Out of all the medium format cameras I have touched the Leica S is the only competitor to the Fujifilm GFX made today that can meet and beat it in the speed/feature department, which is why if they can get the Leica S inside a SL type/size boy at a resonable price point before the GFX becomes too big it could be huge for Leica. The funny thing is the GFX was the star of the show in many ways and everyone was interested to see it and touch it, which lead to many side by side shots in the store with the S and SL, but very few people were interested in the new Sony a7RIII.

Fujifilm is gaining a ton of recognition thanks to the GFX and it’s a huge attention getter at photograhy events that can quickly lead to a crowd, which is very Leica like and most photographers I spoke too do not mind the price point. Yet, looking back at the pictures it makes me think about how Leica could really become a leader in the world of photography again with the proper guidance and engineering. They do so much right with the limited amount of buttons on their cameras and the way features are impliments, but then they do really dumb things too like put the GPS adapter in the EVF on the new Leica M10, which kills the camera for a photographer like me. They should have just made a sleak adapter.

I am glad Leica is doing well financially, but I think Fujifilm is going to continue to eat into everyones market thanks to everything they learned from Leica. Time and time again they out Leica, Leica and that’s great news for Fujifilm and bad news for Leica.

The Fujifilm GFX is Incredibly Durable

Josselin Cornou released the above video of his trip to Thredbo in the Mountains of Australia a little while ago and I meant to post it, but I am glad my post was delayed due to a lot of leaks because DPReview got the inside scoop about the trip which you can read here. His final edited photos are pretty amazing and the only camera I would trust in the conditions he shot under would actually be the Fujifilm GFX, but I’m not sure I would try this with the Kipon Adaptor and Tamron 15-30mm F2.8.

I have been attending Art Basel and The Miami Street Photography Festival for the past few days now and the GFX always draws a crowd. It starts with one photographer noticing it and wanting to know more and then a crowd develops, which can actually disrupt and become a focal point at events. Whenever this happens reliability and durability always comes up and I tell people that out of all the cameras I have owned the GFX is the only one that I never put away when the weather takes a turn for the worse. There is just something about how it is put together that gives you confidence after the first torrential downpour.

Last night I was out shooting the city after things started to wind down and some very light rain was in the air that made me want to pack up the Sony a9, but I had no concern at all for my GFX. Some think it’s crazy to expose expensive gear to the elements, but I think it is far less responsive to repeatedly expose questionably built cameras at 1-3k a piece to the elements.

Learn how I made this shot: https://bit.ly/snowystraya Finding a shelter in the adversity of life. I just finished the video telling tales of this trip here (link in bio): https://youtu.be/Zb5kNP994hw Would means a lot to me if you could check this out. Shot in #visitnsw kociosko, we had to face 110km/h wind at -15C. The weather was mesmerizing and beautiful, but also cold and dangerous. We were forced to stay in that hut due to the harsh condition. The Fujifilm GFX handled the situation really well – delivering really crispy details with the FF lens Tamron AUS 15-30mm f2.8 ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ – @fujicamerasaus GFX with Kipon Adaptor – @tamronaus 15-30mm f2.8 ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

(video: https://bit.ly/snowystraya) Finding a shelter in the adversity of life. I just finished the video telling tales of this epic trip (link in bio): https://youtu.be/Zb5kNP994hw Would means a lot to me if you could check this out. Took me hours to edit this unplanned video 🙂 Don’t forget to leave a ckmment. Thanks for the support and feedback.😍😍😍😍 ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ REPOST: Shot in #visitnsw kociosko, the weather was mesmerizing. Freezing, but completely absolutely surprising. It might look like it was a calm night, but we experienced -15C with 80km/h winds. Seaman’s Hut, Australia, is an alpine hut and memorial located in New South Wales, Australia. It was built following the death of two skiers, W. Laurie Seaman and Evan Hayes in 1928. Laurie’s family built the hut to provide shelter to future users of the park, in order to prevent recurrence of a similar tragedy. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ – @fujicamerasaus GFX – @tamronaus 15-30mm f2.8 ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #australia #newsouthwales #beautifuldestinations #earthpix #OurPlanetDaily #awesomeearth #tourtheplanet #TheGlobeWanderer #wonderful_places #focusaustralia #fantastic_earth #discoverglobe #awesome_earthpix #ig_discover_australia #awesome_photographers #theoutbound #awesomepix #wowplanet #focusaustralia #bomboquarry #focusaustralia #astrophotography #fujifilm #fujicameraaus #fujifilm_xseries #fujixpro2 #fujinon #gfx50s #nightphotography #astrophotography
