Recommended Posts

Artists, Musicians, Photographers, Scientists, Sportsmen, Princes, Directors... the X-series is getting popular also amongst Celebrieties. Here is a selection of "famous X-shooters".... and if you spot someone else, feel free to add him/her in this thread.

 

btw, there must be something right with the Fuji's, if even Ara Güler and Annie Leibovitz own one

I don't think *all* the people mentioned above actually own one, so i guess movies are fine too?

apparently a lot of the tg crew own fujis as well and they've got some of the best cameramen i've seen.

I can confirm that at least four of Top Gear's regular camera operators use Fuji cameras regularly, one of the producers in 2012 had a X100 with them at all times and most publicity stills from the various Top Gear trips of the last few years are taken on Fuji cameras. The X-E2 with the 14mm f/2.8 is especially popular with that crew.

 

... But they use Canon EOS C-series for video

Why would I reason that because a famous person uses a Fuji it must be good?

you're right... it's not so that just because Beyoncé has an X100S, this means it is also a great camera.

 

My comment about "there must be something right with the Fuji's" was more related to Annie Leibovitz and Ara Güler, who own a Fuji. Sure, it doesn't proove that the Fuji's are great cameras. It just shows that 2 of the worlds most popular photographers like to shoot with it, hence "there must be somthing right with the Fuji's"

Not sure this counts, but I caught this on "The Last Ship" last night.  Rhona Mitra using my favorite X-E2.  And she's holding it correctly!

Yeah, but did you hear the shutter sound they used?!

Yes @Trenton, terrible sound.  Like some weird self-loaded film canister in an a Konica T4 with dying batteries!

    • Glad to have been of help, Iain. FYI: no focus issues on the X100V with the set-up mentioned in my post ...
    • Thanks Olaf, very useful, it works.... now I can enjoy pinhole " back to mono" photography of the 19th century !
    • Activate „Shoot without lens“ in the setup menu
    • Have used both Nissin Di700 and the Godox ad200, both with a wireless trigger mounted on the camera hot shoe. After seeing the much greater power. better value for the $ and adaptability of the Godox, I have sold the Nissin. Highly recommend getting the optional Godox round head and extension cable which just plug onto and replace the standard fresnel rectangular head. Godox also make some very good magnetic accessories for the round head (filters, snoot, grid pattern / directional acc
    • So things are getting better for some reason since the update. I will say, this update I had a freshly formatted sd card in, and a fresh battery. The first firmware update I didn’t have a card in yet, the phone prompted it and I just clicked. Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe not.  Either way. I did the firmware update last week and over the weekend got about 1200 pictures and a few hours of 4k 60/24 in f-log, long gop. So here’s all the quirks I can think of since the last update
