First Image Samples Taken With The FujiFilm X100


At least that's what the link said, now it seems the website has been asked to remove the test images by Fujifilm Norway. Still, the dialogue is still up, take a look at

They Conclude...

"All in all, we are quite impressed with the image quality of the X100, especially considering that we have tested is a very early pre-production model and the image quality almost certainly will be as good or even better in the finished product. In addition, we have seen here on the JPG images, and almost without exception, a carefully processed RAW file could cause a significant increase in image quality.
X100 will be the legendary camera it is planned that it should be? Will it in its final edition to be worth the rather hefty price? It's hard to tell on the basis of the model we have seen, but unless Fujifilm really do not care for tension in one or another is the possibility certainly exists. X100 is clearly a prestige product for Fujifilm, and the enthusiastic reception it has received after the initial announcement at Photokina indicates that the interest is great. Fujifilm has many times shown that they can if they want, and when it comes to x100, they simply can not afford not wanted. If Fuji does not do his utmost to get the X100 as well as possible, shoot themselves in the foot, and we believe they are too smart to do".

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…
