On Tuesday, July 26th, Larry will have an X-T2 at Englewood Camera for you to check out, along with other Fujifilm X Series gear, for our customers to demo and learn more about. Don’t miss out–swing by the store anytime between 10:30am until 5:30pm!

The FUJIFILM X-T2 is the ultimate mirrorless digital camera. The X-T2 is a splash-resistant premium interchangeable lens camera with a large OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF). The X-T2 houses the latest generation 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III with an APS-C sensor with no low-pass filter, boasting the highest performance in the history of X Series. The new X-T2 produces crisp image resolution comparable to that of cameras equipped with larger sensors and higher pixel counts, all in a more compact and classically-designed body.

And for the first time, the new FUJIFILM X-T2 now supports 4K video recording that can use each available Film Simulation mode, including ACROS, to easily produce premium-quality footage that is as unique as the photographer behind the viewfinder.

Photography Contest with Lensbaby

with 2 comments

It’s summer time in Colorado, which means a wonderful opportunity to get your creative juices flowing at any number of events, local parks, or on a cool escape to the mountains! To celebrate summer photography, Englewood Camera is offering a unique photo contest, where participants can check out the very awesome Lensbaby Velvet 56 to push the creative boundaries of photography.

What is the Lensbaby Velvet 56? A take on the classic portrait lens–such as a 50mm f/1.2–the Velvet 56 has 3 primary uses. When used with its fastest apertures (f/1.6, f/2, f/2.8), the lens functions as a soft focus, creative effects tool. When used with mid-range apertures (f/4-f/16), the Velvet 56 offers a classic portrait-lens look, with sharp focus and creamy bokeh that rivals the Sigma Art lenses. Lastly, the Velvet 56 functions as a pseudo-macro lens, with a minimum focus distance of one-half an inch, or a 1:2 macro. So, whether you specialize in fine art photography, or portrait photography, this lens is a wonderful tool to add more creative kick to your images!
