The most attractive feature of Fujifilm cameras is the film simulation. Of course, other aspects of Fujifilm cameras are appealing as well, but the official film simulation is based on the aesthetics of the manufacturer, which is something only Fujifilm can do (Kodak, ILFORD, etc. can do it too, if they want to). There is not much documentation on this film simulation. The catalogs describe the simple characteristics of film simulation, but it is difficult to find a document that describes the details behind the film simulation and what the purpose of the film simulation is. In fact, did you know that Fujifilm has a page called “X Stories” on its website? Although the articles are a bit old because it has been some time since each film simulation was introduced, there is a page that describes the characteristics of each film simulation in Fujifilm’s own words. If you are interested in the specific intentions and thoughts behind the creation of each film simulation, please take a look at the following pages.
I heard that X-PRO3 has been discontinued. And the X100V is on order suspension due to component supply problems.The X-E4 is also discontinued. Fujifilm’s rangefinder style cameras looks like in a difficult situation. I hope that Fujifilm has a strategy, but from the user’s point of view, not being able to buy a camera even though it is in the lineup or not being in the lineup seems to be end.
The other day, I went shopping by bicycle from my home to Akihabara. On the way there and on the way back, I went around the Kuramae neighborhood, which is one of the trendy places nowadays, and I saw many new fashionable stores. I was surprised to see so many stores in such a place. I would like to take my time and visit more places next time.
I heard that the FUJIFILM X-E4 had been discontinued. This is somewhat unexpected. Not selling well? Component problems? The X-E series is, to put it very roughly, like X-Pro and X100 added together and divided by 2, minus the OVF. Would it be more correct to say that the X100 has interchangeable lenses and no OVF?
I have the impression that the X-E series is an interchangeable lens camera that allows you to enjoy the high quality of FUJIFILM at a reasonable price. Looking at SONY, even though their digital cameras are doing well, it seems that the ability to shoot video is becoming more and more important. (The X-H2S has been very well advertised).
I can’t think of anything to write about this, but here are some pictures I took while waiting to receive “my number card”. Sunday pickup inevitably takes a long time, doesn’t it? It was long… – “my number card” is printed personal number and photo card from the Japanease government to a person. In japan this card is still not popular now, but now the government campaign to spread the “my number card” to person. The future the car license and a health insurance card will integrate to my nuber card.
