It’s late at night, but Fujifilm just unveiled two new X-Series cameras and a sweet, compact 50mm f/2.0 lens and we didn’t want to wait until morning to share the news. Included in the late-night introductions are the cutting edge X100F rangefinder-style mirrorless camera, an X-T20 interchangeable-lens camera targeted at enthusiasts, and the compact Fujinon XF 50mm f/2.0 R WR lens.

Fujifilm just announced the latest update to its popular X100 series of retro-style digital cameras, the much-anticipated 26.1-megapixel Fujifilm X100V. Shutterbug was one of a handful of media outlets invited to take the new Fuji camera for a test drive on the streets of New York City last week ahead of today's launch.

Every zealous photographer I know would enjoy owning a compact camera that has a large sensor, full manual options and available Raw format. Throw in a wide-angle lens, great performance in high ISO/low light situations and a size that fits in your pocket and you have a winner anyone would relish. That brings us to the Fujifilm XF10. Or does it? I had a chance to use one for an extended period. Read my evaluation in this review.

Fuji's FinePix S100FS (Film Simulation) is an electronic viewfinder digicam that's designed to produce film-like images at the point of capture. How it does it is not all that different than a D-SLR set on Picture Styles or similar, but the S100FS does this with menu items with such magical names as Provia and Velvia, Fujifilm's renowned slide emulsions. Overlooked...

Fujifilm was showing off its new toys at photokina today and we got some hands-on time with these latest X-series cameras and lenses. Initially announced on September 10th, the Fujifilm X100T and XT-1 Graphite Silver cameras, and Fujinon XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR and XF56mm F1.2 R APD lenses continue to build on Fuji’s compact and retro-style (Fuji would say “classic" style) X-Series line.

Zeiss made a big splash at the photokina show in Cologne, Germany last month when it announced the Zeiss ZX1, a compact camera with a Zeiss-designed, 37.4MP full-frame sensor. Today at the PhotoPlus Expo show in New York City, Zeiss officially took the wraps off the camera by displaying prototypes of the ZX1 for the first time.

OK, we admit it: We’re so enthralled by the insane 83X focal range of Nikon’s Coolpix P900 superzoom camera that every so often we have to post a demo video, just because. With its amazing built-in 24-2000mm lens, the P900 is impossible to beat if you want to travel light and have compositional options galore.

Nikon turned heads last night when it unveiled the Coolpix P1000, an all-in-one “bridge” camera with a whopping, 125x built-in lens with a 24-3000mm optical zoom range. While photos and videos shot with the P1000 have emerged, hands-on evaluations of this stratospheric zoom camera have been few and far between so far.

Notes On Our Tests
This month-long test was not intended as a scientific experiment for drawing definitive conclusions about all of the technical aspects involved. That would require testing numerous cameras--of all brands--under strictly controlled conditions and using high-tech equipment for image-quality analyses.

Remember when Paul Simon crooned, “Mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away”? That classic film may have given you nice bright colors, but only on sunny days. In its early incarnations, Kodachrome’s film speed—its sensitivity—was 10, or slower than Homer Simpson.

Most photographers think of “golden hour” as prime time for capturing stunning sunrises and sunsets, and know it’s important to get there early to set up their shot. But as you’ll see in the video below, the sweet early morning and late day light also provides a great opportunity for portraits.

Outdoor photographers often encounter lighting situations with such a wide range of tones that it’s difficult or impossible to capture a properly exposed image in just one shot. Under such conditions, if you expose for the highlights, shadows are crushed. Conversely, if you expose for the shadows, highlights are blown out.

Touted as being shock-resistant, dustproof, freezeproof, and waterproof, the Casio EXILIM EX-G1 camera would seem to be ideal for those who want to take their camera through such extreme conditions without concern.
