Thanks all, bought a few boxes of this to play with just need to run out the remaining 7 prints already in the printer. Good physio today with a lot of returned movement, hoping to get away easy on this one as I have an advertising shoot next month to do, although could always hire another assistant on the day I guess

forum: Fuji Digital Cameras

I just bought myself the Instax Wide printer a week ago. Had been thinking about it for years, but wasn't really convinced that I'd really enjoy prints of my own photos, much less so with instant film. So far I've been wrong. Let's see how this relationship will develop...

forum: Fuji Digital Cameras

I have the now discontinued SP-3 square format instax printer. I shot a small wedding for a friend of mine and brought the printer with me. I printed a bunch of the bride and groom shots on the spot and gave them to the couple - they really loved having the instant memento.

Same thing with mountain biking with friends of mine. Take a small camera on the ride that transfers images to the iPhone and print them from the phone and give them out over post ride beers.

Here’s a nice video from Zach Arias about his experiences with his instax.

https://youtu.be/ejLBs​BtnJCA (external link)

I recall watching a longer video of him in Cuba roaming the streets with an instax printer and making instant (!) friends with the locals wherever he went. It is a cool icebreaker if, like me, you are self-conscious about photographing strangers on the street or at an event.

It’s a nice digital-analog pseudo film experience that is a lot of fun and kind of addictive. Most newer Fujifilm cameras can print directly to the instax but you have more control over the composition if you use the iPhone app.

Enjoy! And heal up quickly.

Features the x100v and the instax. Pretty great combo.

Square? Yes! Color 10 exposure two-packs are about $20 US. Black and white 10 exposure single pack is about $14. Amazon, b&h, etc.

Cheers for all that, good ol' Zach - hope he's doing well lately.

With the wide printer only the X-S10 can print directly but FF should have an FW update out to add the other cameras into the list (least the more recent ones anyway). I'm finding that I'm always printing from my phone as I have it handy and edit on it from time to time, trying to find the image want to print is a whole different story... wish they'd built in access to the smart search function within the app to make finding an image easier so I'v set up a gallery called Instax to put images from my roll for printing.

I bought the Fujifilm 33mm f1.4 and finally received it. I've only used it once on this outing but so far it is fantastic.

There is something ethereal and satisfying about being able to get a wide FoV and background blur with nice falloff.

Seems like you picked a winner! Enjoy.

I would pay full MSRP if Fuji would drop something in the 21~23mm range at F1.0 or F1.2. I know there's F1.4 and I'm buying one of those finally. But I would love F1~F1.2 on 21~23mm for APS-C. It's the one thing I miss about 35mm format. I used to shoot 35mm F2 a lot on my 35mm and liked it. Wide FOV with the ability to go for a soft background if its busy or distracting but not razor thin to lose the background to the point of it just being a smear (don't want that all the time, will use my 50mm F1.2 or 85mm F1.4 for that kind of stuff).

I've been using the 23mm F2 on my X100S, the 21mm F1.4 that I have (Samyang, manual) and the 35mm F1.2 (7Artisans) and far and away prefer the 21~23mm or 35mm equivalent. I never enjoyed 50mm on 35mm much. Always was a 35mm/85mm type I guess. So I like the 21~23mm and 50mm on APS-C. Happy that the 50mm F2 dropped, I might get one since it's inexpensive, despite knowing I'd rather have the F1.2 but not at three times the cost.

Very best,

Tamron 18-300 Lens Test #2:

..............

Curious to know what you think!

Every lens is a compromise of qualities and the important issue is to find a compromise of features, size, weight, cost and quality which suits you.

What we think may be interesting, but if the trade-offs of a given lens suit you, than you have made an excellent choice. And for the priorities you have listed, it sounds like you have something which works well for you.

Personally, I go in a really different direction with Fuji X lenses, but I also have very different priorities. For example, for the type of work I do, 56mm would be a pretty long lens, with the exception of tabletop or macro work.

I also place a high priority on handiness for a lens on the X system, so I especially like the 35/1.4 and 18/2 combination. They are tiny lenses which deliver very nice rendering and, if I choose or create good light, are more likely to deliver a more 3D look.

The 18 is a bit weaker optically among FUJI X lenses (which tend to be excellent, so it is weak only in comparison to a strong crowd). But it is still quite a nice and tiny lens.

Do I share this to change your mind or suggest you choose differently? Not at all. If you are happy with your lens, you are all set! Rather, I share it because you asked for feedback on your choice and because my feedback is that the quality of the lens choice is relative to the needs of the individual and that it is useful to see how those perspectives differ.

For me, the quality of the Fuji lenses is a big factor in my preferring the system. Not only are they excellent in the objective measures of lenses, but they are also very good at the subjective ways in which we can consider lenses. People talk about “rendering,” “bokeh,” how a lens “draws,” how it “renders color,” “micro-contrast,” etc, most of which are more about opinions than they are measurable.

There are very few “bad” lenses these days. Our technical capabilities have gotten very good. So it’s pretty hard to go “wrong” with a little research.

But the more subjective qualities are where there is still a lot of difference, maybe far more than in the past precisely because companies are pushing hard on the technical qualities to keep up with sensors.

For example, Zeiss used to do much better on subjective qualities but has made that less of a priority in favor of objective qualities. Yet Voigtlander (owned by Cosina), still has good subjective quality.

Fuji is quite exceptional in the modern world of lenses because they manage to consistently produce lenses which have the technical, objective qualities and well as consistently excellent performance in the subjective qualities.

Nikon, in contrast, has a broad range of options, some poor, some great, on both objective and subjective measures.

All of this merely reflects my personal opinion over the years of looking at lenses. You will find other points of view.

Which leads right back to my initial point: find the best lens for your priorities. And know that when you ask for other's opinions on lenses, what you will really get is their priorities :).


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).
