Fujifilm has enjoyed widespread popularity and loyalty with its excellent mirrorless X-series cameras and lenses, but there is one market that the company hasn’t cracked in significant numbers: professional photographers.

That could change with the release of the Fujifilm X-H1.

Nearly everything about this camera is intended to appeal to the working photographer, from being weather resistant to a body that is touted as being able to take some knocks.

Sony A7R III

Rather than making huge strides in its technology, the Sony A7R III improves on what already is a very popular full-frame mirrorless digital camera.

And there is much to mention with this camera.

Like its predecessor, the A7R III uses a backside-illuminated 42.4-MP Exmor sensor with an ISO range of 100-32,000, which is expandable to 50-102,400. The sensor has no low-pass filter, which should yield sharper images out of the camera.

If the Fujifilm Finepix XP130 seems familiar, it’s because we’ve seen this camera before when it was known as the Fujifilm Finepix XP120.

Feature for feature, the small point and shoot Finepix XP130 is nearly identical to the Finepix XP120, with a few new items on its list. Among them is Bluetooth connectivity, which allows the Finepix XP130 to share images with your phone or smart device.

Nikon’s latest telephoto zoom goes after a very particular audience – those in need of more reach and not concerned about size or cost.

The AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm f/4 E TC1.4 FL ED VR certainly has a long name and a lot of technology inside, plus a trick up its magnesium sleeve.

Even as Sony continues its work on its E-mount mirrorless cameras, it continues to develop its RX10 bridge camera.

The latest version, the RX10 IV, continues to use a 1.0-inch 20.1-MP Exmor RS CMOS sensor with a sensitivity of ISO 100-12,800, which can be extended to 25,600.

Panasonic has a new flagship mirrorless G camera, and it’s the Lumix G9.

Keep in mind that although Panasonic has never expressly stated so, it has two top-of-the-line mirrorless cameras: the G for still photographers and the GH for videographers.

The Lumix G9 takes advantage of the latest advances in digital photography, which show up in its specifications.

Fujifilm X RAW Studio

Fujifilm is launching a new software package for photographers who shoot RAW images with certain X-series cameras.

Fujifilm X RAW Studio, which is available now for the Mac platform and for Windows in February 2018, is somewhat unique in that it uses the camera’s image processing engine to do the work, rather than the computer’s CPU.

Fujifilm says that this will benefit photographers who might not have the fastest computer.

Reflex and Elbaflex

With most in the digital photography declaring film dead, maybe there is some life left in celluloid.

Two Kickstarter campaigns take a different approach to 35mm film photography, but both have the ultimate goal of renewing interest in the format.

The two cameras are the Reflex and the Ihagee Elbaflex, and both are manual-focus 35mm single-lens reflex cameras.

Fujifilm X-E3

Fujifilm has freshened its X-series lineup with the X-E3, which replaces the X-E2.

While not an entry-level model, Fujifilm is touting the camera’s features that would appeal to amateur photographers and content producers.

The X-E3 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor while increasing the pixel count of its APS-C sensor and adding the ability to record 4K video. There are other changes, as well, that seek to make the camera easier to use.

Fujinon f/2.8 GF45mm R WR

Fujifilm has added a sixth lens for its digital GFX medium format system. The Fujinon f/2.8 GF45mm R WR, which provides for a 36mm field of view when thought of in terms of full-frame 35mm, weighs about 17 ounces (490 grams).

Fujifilm says the GF45mm is a good choice for street photography and documentary work.

The lens has 11 elements in eight groups and includes one aspherical element and two extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses. There are nine aperture blades.
