DPRTV: Fujifilm X-S10 vs Sony a6400

DPRTV released a new video comparing the Fujifilm X-S10 to the Sony a6400. Below is a summary of their findings.

Handling – Fujifilm X-S10 (Win)

  • a6400 gets a bad rap, but you can get used to the bad menus, grip, poorly positioned buttons/dials
  • X-S10 is compact and has a fantastic grip with well laid out buttons and lots of great features

Displays – Tie

  • X-S10 Over a million pixels on the rear screen and it fully articulates
  • a6400 has a vertical tilting rear screen that many prefer and the EVF has the same resolution as the X-S10, but refreshes faster

Autofocus – Sony a6400 (Win)

  • Fujifilm has come a long way with its AF technology and keeps up with Sony in many areas but it is trying to be more Sony like
  • a6400 Real-time Autofocus tracking is the best by a mile and everyone wants their AF to be like Sony

Image Quality – Fujifilm X-S10 (Win)

  • a6400 has wonderful image quality
  • X-S10 has better image quality though with or without film simulations plus there isn’t much rolling shutter

Video Quality – Fujifilm X-S10 (Win)

  • The Fujifilm X-S10 can do 1080 240p and it has a mic/headphone jack with IBIS it’s miles ahead
  • a6400 has a bunch of hot air and if you want video a6600 is where you need to look from Sony

Battery Life – Sony a6400 (Win)

  • a6400 410 shot CIPA rated
  • X-S10 325 shot CIPA rated but you can use a USB-C cable to recharge or run the camera

Lens lineup – Tie

  • Fujifilm has a complete system, but no third party support
  • Sony has a complete system with third party support

Conclusion

  • Fujifilm X-S10 is a fantastic camera, but it is 2 years newer and Sony’s next camera could be very good

Fujifilm Releases New COVID-19 Ag Antigen Test Kit


New release of new coronavirus antigen test kit “COVID-19 Ag”
Applying high-sensitivity detection technology by silver salt amplification reaction For infectious disease testing device “Fuji Dry Chem IMMUNO AG” series
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced a new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) antigen test kit “Fuji Dry Chem IMMUNO AG” that applies high-sensitivity detection technology based on the silver salt amplification reaction used in the photo development process. In vitro diagnosis of the cartridge COVID-19 Ag (hereinafter, “COVID-19 Ag”) for our infectious disease testing device “Fuji Dry Chem IMMUNO AG” (hereinafter, IMMUNO AG) series. It will be released as a pharmaceutical product through FUJIFILM Medical Co., Ltd. (President: Yoshihiro Kawahara) from March 9th.

With the spread of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19), the scope of antigen qualitative testing has been expanded in Japan from January 22, 2021. As a result, the antigen qualitative test, which was previously defined as 2 to 9 days after onset, is now possible from 1 to 9 days after onset. In addition, when it is difficult to carry out a PCR test in an area where infection has spread, it is effective to carry out a wide range of antigen qualitative tests at medical institutions and facilities for the elderly, which are often at high risk of aggravation, from the viewpoint of preventing the spread of infection. Since the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has indicated that, it has become possible to carry out qualitative antigen tests as an administrative test for staff of medical institutions and facilities for the elderly, inpatients and residents, even if they are asymptomatic. * 1 . In the future, it is expected that antigen qualitative tests, which can be easily tested, will be performed in more situations, but in general, their sensitivity was lower than that of PCR tests, so higher sensitivity was required.

DPRTV: Fujinon XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6

DPRTV posted their review of the upcoming Fujinon XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 and I can’t wait to get mine. Below is a summary of their review:

  • 70-300mm in APS-C is really more like 105-450
  • A very versatile lens with a versatile range
  • Very compact design with a 67mm front filter thread
  • 588g which makes it a very plastic design
  • The dials are fine but a little lose
  • Other than that the build quality feels a lot like their other XF lenses
  • Aperture ring and focus limiter on the lens
  • Can be locked at 70mm to keep the lens from creeping walking around
  • The lens lock unlocks on its own when you zoom the lens
  • AF performance is quite nice and silent
  • Nice and snappy when using the focus limiter
  • Still very snappy without using the focus limiter
  • OIS in the lens with 5.5 stops of stabilization and it works with internal stabilization to give you 5 axis
  • There is almost no breathing with this lens
  • Minimal LoCA
  • 1:2 Macro reproduction so you can shoot wildlife and flowers
  • Not a very fast aperture lens, but you can get nice soft bokeh when you’re up close
  • Heavy cats eye when you shoot wide open, but stopping down a little helps a lot
  • Bokeh is wild wide open, but Chris prefers it stopped down, but still has onion rings
  • Nice transition from out of focus to in focus areas though so should be good for sports and wildlife, but you should avoid specularly highlights
  • Everything else is quite nice
  • Flare isn’t an issue
  • Nice lens hood
  • Sun stars are pretty good
  • 70mm f/4 has very nice sharpness and stopping down improves it a little across the frame
  • 300mm f/5.6 is nice and sharp again so the lens is very consistent across its range
  • 1.4xTC brings the lens up to about 420mm(588mm) f/8 and AF performance is still quite good and image quality loss is minimal
  • 2xTC brings the lens up to about 300mm (900mm) f/11 and AF performance is a little slower, but it still tracks fine and loses minimal image quality
  • This lens makes a lot of sense to a lot of people and kind of replaces the 55-200mm which is only a little brighter
