Thoughts on the Panasonic Lumix S9
Fuji X Weekly

13h ago
Panasonic just announced a new camera: Lumix S9. I’ve never touched or seen the Panasonic Lumix S9 in person. I’ve only seen reviews of it, such as the Chris Niccolls writeup on PetaPixel. I have a few quick thoughts that I want to share with you, before returning to the regularly scheduled programming. Many years ago I used to own a Panasonic camera, but only briefly, because I didn’t care for it. It was one of their low-budget models, so maybe if I had something higher-end I would have liked it better. I’m sure I would think much differently about the S9; however, I don’t have much of a pe ..read more

Dumbo Crowd – Brooklyn, New York City, NY – Fujifilm X-T50 – Reala Ace Recipe 2024 has been a wild ride so far, but in the best way possible. I have so much to share with all of you. I’m sure it will take weeks to get it all out via various articles, videos, and social media content. This post is simply to lay out the backstory, and serve as a foundation to build on. There’s so much that I’ve been wanting to tell you but couldn’t; however, now I can! In January I got a call from Fujifilm North America. They told me that they like what I’m doing and that they want to work with me in the comi ..read more

Fujifilm X-T50 — The “Digital Film” Camera — But who is it for?
Fuji X Weekly

The brand-new Fujifilm X-T50 was just announced! It’s both surprising and intriguing. This might be Fujifilm’s most contentious model since the X-Pro3, but it shouldn’t be controversial at all. What exactly is the X-T50? Is it the right camera for you? I’ll try to answer those questions in this article. The double-digit X-T line has traditionally been Fujifilm’s mid-level, enthusiast-grade, interchangeable-lens, SLR-styled models (that’s a mouthful!). It’s the little brother of the single-digit X-T cameras, like the X-T2 and X-T3. With the discontinuation of the low-end triple-digit X-T seri ..read more

Fujifilm X-T50 Film Dial Settings + 14 New Film Simulation Recipes (Yes, 14!!)
Fuji X Weekly
by Ritchie Roesch
1w ago
The brand-new Fujifilm X-T50 has a Film Dial! It’s their very first model with a Film Dial, actually. Turn the knob to give your photos a different analog aesthetic. The “films” are simply the various film simulations, which Fujifilm has been including in their cameras for a couple of decades now; originally there were only a few, but they’ve routinely added more over the years, and now there are 20 different film simulations to choose from. I really like the Film Dial, and I think it’s wonderful that Fujifilm has decided to make film simulations a prominent part of the X-T50 experience. The ..read more

Exciting Times Ahead?
Fuji X Weekly

Let me apologize right up front for the slowdown in articles lately. I’ve been really busy the last few weeks, and especially the last two weeks, and particularly the last handful of days. I’m hopeful that the chaos will calm down soon—perhaps in another week—and I can get back to publishing the amount and quality of content that you are used to seeing on Fuji X Weekly. Anyway, Fujifilm just released a teaser video ahead of their May 15/16 X Summit in Sydney (10 PM Pacific, 1 AM Eastern). From the video, it appears like they’re going to announce a camera and lens. It definitely looks intrigu ..read more

Fujifilm Photowalk was a Success!
Fuji X Weekly

Captured on RitchieCam. Yesterday’s Fuji X Weekly + Nuzira collaborative Fujifilm photowalk in Scottsdale, Arizona, was a huge success! Altogether, 16 people showed up, including myself and Lucas White of Nuzira. It was a great group of photographers, and I think everyone had a good time. Most were local to the Phoenix metro area, but three came from Ohio and one from South Dakota—they were in the area, and it just happened to work out that they could attend. It was such an honor to co-lead everyone through Old Town Scottsdale! The weather cooperated wonderfully, but it didn’t initially seem ..read more

My 5 Favorite Film Simulation Recipes that use Acros

Round Window – Pismo Beach, CA – Fujifilm X100V – Kodak Tri-X 400 Provia — Velvia — Astia — Classic Chrome — PRO Neg. Hi — PRO Neg. Std — Classic Negative — Nostalgic Neg. — Eterna — Eterna Bleach Bypass There are 20 different film simulations on the new Fujifilm X100VI. Since there are likely many newcomers to Fujifilm who aren’t all that familiar with the various film sims (and Film Simulation Recipes), I thought it would be worthwhile to discuss each one in more detail, and offer my personal favorite Recipes for each. The new Reala Ace film simulation will be excl ..read more

Fujifilm X-Pro2 — The camera that got away (again)
Fuji X Weekly

Back in 2018, I briefly owned a Fujifilm X-Pro2. I loved that camera! It was so much fun, and the perfect compliment to my Fujifilm X100F. To this day it remains my absolute favorite interchangeable-lens model by Fujifilm that I’ve ever purchased. Unfortunately, I had to sell it. You see, I didn’t have a lot of money back then to spend on (what was at the time) my hobby. I’m sure that many of you can relate. I found a good deal on a used X-Pro2, but I really couldn’t afford it. Using PayPal credit, I was able to hold onto the camera for about six months, but when the interest came due, I ha ..read more

On Top of a Desert Hill – Tucson, AZ – Fujifilm X-T5 – Nostalgic Americana If you are a Fuji X Weekly regular, you probably know that I like to read vintage issues of Arizona Highways. For those unfamiliar, Arizona Highways is a photo-centric magazine that has been around for a hundred years. Many decades ago, Ansel Adams was a regular contributor, as were Barry Goldwater, Ray Manley, Chuck Abbott, Ester Henderson, David and Josef Muench, and Ed Ellinger, among many others. It’s a great resource for photographic inspiration! I have a stack of these magazines in my office that I like to browse ..read more
