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 ;)

richard hammond from top gear.



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"

    • I must have activated the wrong setting because now when I switch to the OVF the white windows stays for a second and then completely disappears. Any idea how to get it back? Thank you all so much. 🙂
    • No thunder stolen. If you read to the end of my article you'll see (in the section "Resources") I have a link for Simon Weir's site. I also have two other links on there with various IR tests. My article is only Fuji-centric because that is my system of choice though I've done a ton of IR work with Sony FF as well. I consider the sites for which I provide links to be complementary and I wish there were more sites out there evaluating for infrared. Although I test for infrared quite thoroughly I can only afford so many lenses. The eight Fuji mount lenses shown in my article I bought myself. In fact, same with the Sony and Micro 4/3 with the exception of the two Sony APS-C zooms that were rented. Also when I get new lenses, I'll update the article on my blog. I can't update the PetaPixel one as they just republished what was on my blog at the time. I have recently shot with the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 Fuji-X and 7Artisans 35mm f0.95 Fuji-X. After trying 2 samples of the Voigtlander I returned them both but mainly for their strange and unacceptable (for my work) performance with resolution. Regarding IR, the Voiglander is free of hotspots from 1.2 through about f3.5. I'm impressed with the 7Artisans overall but it only works for IR at wider apertures (f0.95 through about f2.8.) Then again that's why you buy an f/0.95 lens. Thanks for the feedback. Happy shooting! Joel
    • Yes I don’t blame you. I’ll always have some Fujifilm gear. But if they don’t upgrade their gear in the next 3 months I’m going to go back to Canon for a lot of my work. I really love Fujifilm for all the right reasons but it’s faults are getting in the way of my work at this point.
    • You're welcome. I still use my X-Pro2 for personal work every now and then, but I replaced the X-H1 (and the rest of the Fuji-kit) with a Z7II-based kit and I'm very satisfied with that move.
    • That’s a lot of great info. I’m gonna explore those options. I don’t really wanna get an XT4 at this point. (Come on X-H2!) Thanks!
