Fuji introduced its new Mini LiPlay Instax camera this week. The new LiPlay camera uses the popular Instax Mini credit card sized film but turns to a digital sensor, which reduces some of the bulk compared to analog Instax Mini cameras. [Read more…]
Fuji announced that it is bringing black and white film back to market with the introduction of its new NEOPAN 100 ACROS II film.
“This 100 ISO film will deliver unsurpassed resolution, fine grain and sharpness, with exceptional detail satisfying a broad range of shooting scenarios and exposures. The 35mm and 120 format film will be introduced in Japan this fall, with other markets to follow, based upon demand.”
This is certainly a step in the right direction for the film enthusiasts out there; however, we still have to see enough demand before it shows up outside of Japan (although you can still find some existing stock of the original ACROS 100 in the US).
If that happens though, maybe we will someday get our beloved peel-apart Fuji FP-100C film back…?
Fuji has announced its new GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR lens for the medium format GFX system, which presently includes the Fuji GFX 50S and GFX 50R camera bodies. The lens offers a 35mm equivalent focal range of 79-158mm in a relatively compact design. It is weather-proof with the ability to operate in temperatures down to 14 °F and is sealed to resist dust and moisture.
The lens is made up of 20 elements in 13 groups including two super Extra Low Dispersion Glass lenses and one aspherical lens to reduce chromatic and field curvature aberrations. The new lens is compatible with the GF1.4X TC WR, which extends the telephoto shooting range to 140-280mm (equivalent to 111-221mm in 35mm format).
The Fuji GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR lens will be available in late February 2019 in $1,999.95. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

Fujifilm has introduced an interesting new compact camera. The new Fuji XF10 features a 24.2MP APS-C format sensor and a fixed 18.5mm f/2.8 lens (28mm equivalent).
Fuji has long been know for its X100-line of rangefinder-style cameras that sport an APS-C sensor and a fixed lens. These cameras are compact, stylish and fun to shoot with their leaf shutters. Now, the Fuji XF10 appears to channel some of that same tech magic but in a more compact and a little less retro package. [Read more…]
