  1. Hallo und willkommen, du bist hier im internationalen – englischsprachigen – Fuji X Forum gelandet. Mehr deutschsprachige Antworten bekommst du hier: https://www.fuji-x-forum.de Zu deiner Frage: Das lässt sich aus mehreren Gründen nicht so einfach beantworten. Es fehlen technische Infos Welche Kamera benutzt du? Was für eine Blitzanlage nutzt du? Wie sind Kamera und Blitzanlage gekoppelt? Du kennst offensichtlich Kamera noch nicht so gut Studiofotografie mit einer Blitzanlage ist kein Hexenwerk, aber man muss schon die Grundlagen verstanden haben, wie Blende, ISO, Belichtungszeit (eher wenig), Blitzleistung, Abstände etc. miteinander zusammen hängen. Zwei konkrete Tipps: Tipp 1: Try & Error Bau eine Lichtsituation auf Mach so lange Testaufnahmen, bis die Belichtung stimmt: Blitzleistung runter regeln so weit es geht Blende schließen ISO reduzieren Tipp 2: Lieber Dauerlicht nutzen Gruß Andreas

  10. During the 3rd X Summit, Fuji announced the fifth version of the Fuji X100 series – the Fuji X100V. The Fuji X100V at a glance 26.1 MP APS-C Sensor X-Trans 4 Processor Newly developed FUJINON 23 mm 1:2.0 lens (35mm in 35 mm format) ISO 160 - 12,800 (extended ISO 80 - 51,200) 20 fps continuous shooting speed with electronic shutter (11 fps mechanical) 3" tilt display with touch function and 1.6 MP resolution Hybrid viewfinder: Optical viewfinder and electronic viewfinder with 3.6 MP Built-in ND filter (4 EV / 16x) 4k 30p / FullHD 120p Video Weatherproof Fuji X100V Images Fujifilm launches “FUJIFILM X100V” New evolution of the X100 Series, the origin of premium compact digital cameras Sophisticated design that exudes functional beauty The newly-developed high-performance lens for premium image quality The world's only viewfinder that switches between optical and electronic options in pursuit of the photography style of “shooting through the viewfinder” Tokyo, February 5, 2020 — FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the launch of the premium compact digital camera “FUJIFILM X100V” (hereinafter “X100V”) in late February 2020. The X100V features a newly-developed high-performance lens on its camera body, designed with functional beauty and sophistication. It is equipped with the latest image sensor and image processing engine to deliver premium-quality images with the company's signature color-reproduction technology. In addition the evolved version of the Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder offers inter-switchable optical and electronic options, in pursuit of the photography style of “shooting through the viewfinder.” Fujifilm pioneered a new market segment of premium compact digital cameras in 2011 with the launch of the FUJIFILM X100, the inaugural model of the X100 Series. The X100 Series has established a distinctive market position as premium compact digital cameras. It has won great acclaim from users around the world for its sophisticated exterior design, facilitating intuitive operability, and advanced image quality based on Fujifilm's signature color reproduction technology that has been refined over 80 years. The X100V is the fifth-generation model of the X100 Series. While maintaining the Series' popular design in principle, the new model uses aluminum for the top and bottom plates of the camera body, applying advanced metal processing technology. It has achieved sharp looks to the edges while keeping the surfaces smooth. The use of a tilting rear LCD monitor and dials on the top plate enables intuitive operations and gives the camera body design sophistication exuding functional beauty. A high-performance lens with ultra resolution has been newly developed for this model. The back-illuminated 26.1MP “X-Trans™ CMOS 4”* sensor and the “X-Processor 4” high-speed image processing engine are combined with Fujifilm's unique color reproduction technology to produce premium-quality stills and videos in “memory colors,” i.e. vivid colors exactly as you remember. The X100V equips the Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder, the world's only** viewfinder that can be switched between optical viewfinder (OVF) and electronic viewfinder (EVF). The EVF uses a newly developed organic electroluminescent (EL) panel with capability of high-resolution, high luminance, high contrast to provide enhanced immersiveness in photography shooting experience. The X100V is a digital camera that integrates excellent design and operability, perfected with attention to detail, with functions that achieve outstanding image quality. It will give photographic pleasure and a sense of joy to own such excellent camera to a wide range of users including professional photographers and photography enthusiasts. **X-Trans™ is a trademark or registered trademark of FUJIFILM Corporation.** ***As of February 5, 2020. According to Fujifilm.** Main product features (1) Sophisticated design exuding functional beauty This is the first X100 Series camera that uses aluminum for its top and bottom plates. Aluminum, highly shapeable metal, has been milled into shape to achieve sharp looks to the edges and fine blasting treatment produces smooth texture on the surface. The body has been further colored with alumite treatment to achieve a premium appearance. For the first time in the X100 Series, this model features a two-way tilting rear LCD monitor that enables various shooting styles from high and low angles. The monitor's excellent touch-response performance guarantees intuitive operability. The ultra-thin LCD monitor can be stored flush in the back panel to achieve an integral body design with a sense of style. The X100V offers an ISO dial, built into the shutter speed dial, allowing users to check and adjust various settings without having to turn the camera on. When adjusting ISO sensitivity, users can pull the outer rim of the Built-In ISO Dial up to lock for added convenience. The camera features a grip shaped for a comfortable hold and various buttons optimally positioned for easy operation, promising a great shooting experience. (2) Premium image quality achieved with the newly-developed high-performance lens combined with the latest image sensor and image processing engine Using optical technologies developed through the industry-leading “FUJINON lenses,” including lenses for cinema cameras, Fujifilm has newly developed a bright prime lens with the focal length of 23mm (equivalent to 35mm in the 35mm film format) and the maximum aperture of F2. The lens, specifically designed for the X100V using two aspherical lens elements, delivers edge-to-edge sharpness in high resolution and high contrast. The X100V uses the back-illuminated 26.1MP “X-Trans™ CMOS 4” sensor and the “X-Processor 4” high-speed image processing engine. They are combined with Fujifilm's unique color reproduction technology, refined for over 80 years, to produce “memory colors,” i.e. vivid colors exactly as you remember. (3) Evolved “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder” in pursuit of the photography style of “shooting through the viewfinder” The X100V features the world's only “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder,” allowing users to instantaneously switch between the optical viewfinder (OVF), which captures the photo subject exactly as it is, and the electronic viewfinder (EVF), which reflects exposure and other shooting conditions adjustments. The EVF uses a high-resolution 3.69-million-dot organic EL panel for the first time in the X100 Series. It boasts the maximum luminous intensity of 1500 candelas and high contrast to display even intricate details in highlights and shadows, providing enhanced immersiveness in photography. In the OVF mode, the viewfinder offers the Electronic Rangefinder function to display a small EVF window at the same time. The feature has been developed to bring out the maximum viewfinder potential, allowing users to capture the subject as it is while enlarging the focusing area in the small EVF. This function provides added convenience when taking snapshots. (4) Expanded array of shooting functions The use of the latest algorithm enables the camera to realize fast and accurate phase-detection AF at the minimum luminance of -5EV, which is close to pitch darkness. The performance of Face and Eye AF has also been improved. The Focus Limiter function, which limits the range of focal lengths for using AF, assists a smooth shooting experience with AF. The X100V offers a total of 17 Film Simulation modes to provide versatile tonal variations. It enables a high contrast finish with three-dimensional definitions with the “CLASSIC Neg” mode, which simulates color negative film traditionally chosen for snapshots of day-to-day scenes. The “ETERNA” mode, which simulates the colors and tonality of Fujifilm's motion picture film, allows users to record video in subdued colors and rich shadow tones. The X100V also has the “Grain Effect” function for reproducing distinctive graininess seen in photographs taken with film cameras. Users can adjust size and strength settings to control the degree of grain. The camera is capable of recording smooth 4K video at 30fps. In the Full-HD modes, video can be recorded at even smoother 60fps for premium video quality. (5) Various optional accessories for expanding photographic enjoyment The use of the adapter ring “AR-X100” and the protection filter “PRF-49” makes this camera dust and moisture resistant for users to enjoy shooting in light rain or dusty outdoor conditions. Two conversion lenses are available to alter the camera's focal length without compromising its optical performance or f-stop value, further broadening photographic pleasure. ① Wide conversion lens “WCL-X100 II” Mounting this conversion lens widens the focal length by 0.8x to 19mm (equivalent to 28mm in the 35mm film format), perfect for landscape photography. ② Tele-conversion lens “TCL-X100 II” Mounting this conversion lens extends the focal length by 1.4x to 33mm (equivalent to 50mm in the 35mm film format), ideal for portraiture taking advantage of a natural perspective. The genuine leather case “LC-X100V” gives a premium appearance. A memory card or a battery can be replaced while the case is attached to the camera.

This update will raise the limit by ten times to 9,999 pictures. The phenomena below during a movie shooting are fixed. Focus hunting at the minimum aperture. A black line can sometimes appear on the bottom of the center. Fix of minor bugs. » Official Fujifilm Download Site
  14. Fujifilm launches mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM X-T200” Unique color reproduction technology to capture precious memories in vivid colors A compact and lightweight camera body with 4K video capability and fast AF that can accurately focus on a moving subject, faces and eyes Tokyo, January 23, 2020 — FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the addition of the “FUJIFILM X-T200” (X-T200) to the lineup of the X Series of compact and lightweight mirrorless digital cameras that deliver outstanding image quality with Fujifilm's proprietary color reproduction technology. The X-T200 is scheduled to be released in late February 2020. The X-T200 is a mirrorless digital camera that inherits the “central viewfinder style,” adopted by the popular X-T Series such as the FUJIFILM X-T3 that boasts advanced mobility and excellent operability. The compact and lightweight camera body, weighing just 370g*, is equipped with an APS-C sensor packing 24.24 million pixels and a high-performance image processing engine. The use of the unique color reproduction technology, nurtured over many years, recreates “memory colors” or colors as one remembers in one's memory, such as naturally beautiful skin tones, vivid lush greens of early summer and deep blues of the sky on a bright sunny day. The camera's AF performance has been enhanced by placing on-sensor phase detection pixels across the sensor and adopting a further evolved algorithm. This enables outstanding AF tracking of a moving subject and AF on faces / eyes, as well as giving the ability to attain focus quickly and accurately even in low light conditions. The X-T200 is a mirrorless digital camera capable of producing not only premium-quality photos but also full-fledged video, catering to the needs of photography enthusiasts and users who want to step up from smartphone cameras, trying to capture and record precious memories with ease and in high image quality. Fujifilm will continue to evolve the X Series including the X-T200, the GFX Series of mirrorless digital cameras incorporating with large format** sensors and their extensive lens lineups to deliver the joy of photography. * Including the supplied battery and a memory card ** An image sensor measuring 55mm diagonally (43.8mm x 32.9mm), with the area approximately 1.7 times that of a 35mm sensor Main features (1) Small and lightweight body, unique color reproduction technology and excellent AF performance for capturing photos of premium image quality with ease The 370g compact and lightweight body, some 80g lighter than the previous model***, contains a 24.24MP APS-C sensor and a high-performance image processing engine. The use of the unique color reproduction technology, nurtured over 80 years, recreates “memory colors” or colors as one remembers in one's memory, such as naturally beautiful skin tones, vivid lush greens of early summer and deep blues of the sky on a bright sunny day. The camera's AF performance has been enhanced by placing on-sensor phase detection pixels across the sensor and adopting a further evolved algorithm. This enables outstanding AF tracking of a moving subject and AF on faces / eyes, as well as giving the ability to attain focus quickly and accurately even in low light conditions. The camera also offers a variety of automatic functions including the Advanced SR Auto, which automatically selects the optimum shooting settings according to given scenes such as portrait, landscape and night scape, so that the users can take high-quality pictures with ease. The sensor uses copper wiring to make the speed of data readout 3.5 times faster than that of the previous model**, thereby significantly reducing the rolling shutter effect4. The camera boasts continuous shooting of 8fps. It is combined with the fast and accurate AF capability to capture a decisive photo moment. ***Compared to the mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM X-T100” *4A distortion to a subject that occurs when shooting a fast-moving subject with the electronic shutter (2) Outstanding operability with the bright and large widescreen LCD monitor and other features The X-T200 features a 3.5-inch widescreen LDC monitor with the aspect ratio of 16:9, offering the touch response performance equivalent to or greater than smartphones in general to enable intuitive operations. Shooting settings can be easily adjusted with touchscreen operations while users visually check exposure and the degree of bokeh on the screen. The monitor has a high level of clear visibility thanks to its maximum luminous intensity of approximately 1,000 candelas, double the brightness of the previous model's*** monitor, displaying the subject clearly even on a bright sunny day outdoors. The monitor has a “vari-angle” structure that allows users to adjust the monitor to any angles, facilitating photo shooting from low and high angles. It can also be flipped for easy “self portraits” in conjunction with the Face / Eye AF. The use of the easy-to-hold grip design ensures that the camera sits comfortably in one's hand. It remains stable even when mounted with a large telephoto zoom lens for photo shooting. (3) Featuring shooting functions that enable versatile color tones and artistic expressions The X-T200 offers 11 variations of Fujifilm's unique Film Simulation Modes including Velvia and PROVIA, making it possible to choose from different color tones and expressions according to the subject or scene as if users are opting to use different photographic film. “Clarity Filter” has been added to bring the total number of Advanced Filters to 20, adding advanced artistic flair to images to expand the scope of one's photographic expressions. The X-T200 has a built-in pop-up flash, integrally designed into the viewfinder section. The camera automatically controls light output according to each scene and distance to the subject, so as to prevent highlight clipping for a natural presentation of the subject in flash photography. (4) Enhanced video recording functions including full-scale 4K video The X-T200 reads data from all the pixels on the sensor and uses the ample information equivalent to 6K to produce 4K video, resulting in low-noise and premium-quality footage. The camera records smooth 4K video at 30fps, or even smoother video at 60fps in the Full-HD and HD video modes. The camera's HDR movie mode controls highlight and shadow clipping even in situations with significant contrast in light levels for enriched tonality. Full-HD video can be recorded at the rate of 120fps, providing smooth video even in slow-motion replay of a fast moving subject. It will be the first Fujifilm digital camera to feature the Digital Gimbal Mode. It uses gyro sensors to accurately detect even the slightest of vibrations to control camera shakes during video recording. The “Cut & Edit” function has been newly added to trim recorded video. This shortens the duration of video replay and reduces data size, making it easier to post video on social media or share it with family and friends. (5) Expanding the joy of photography with the interchangeable lens to be released at the same time The “FUJINON Lens XC35mmF2,” to be released at the same time as the X-T200, is a compact standard lens with the maximum aperture of F2.0 and the focal length of 35mm, weighing just 130g and measuring 46.5mm. Its fast and silent AF capability, and its exceptional portability allow the users to enjoy a light-footed shooting style.
