    Unfortunately, you are right. It will still be a superb camera, but photography has become an athletic event with technology at its core. Hopefully it will mean that I can buy the Fuji for a lower price when it goes somewhat out of fashion, but I wouldn't count on it. Even the clunky Fuji S3 gets rather decent prices on the second hand market.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    We've just been given access to a beta version of Adobe Camera Raw that supports the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and have used it to process our standard test scene. The good news is that it produces similar resolution to the camera's JPEG output and that it appears to recognize the selected dynamic range extension setting. The X-Pro1 is not a camera with obvious peers, so we've presented it alongside a mixture of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras

    The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is included to see how well Fujifilm's claims that the X-Pro1 captures resolution 'parallel, if not superior, to a full frame sensor,' stand up. These are just our suggested comparisons - you are able (and encouraged) to choose your own.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Lots of wonderful images since I last checked. Well done everyone.

    I was recently in Seattle as part of a birthday present to my better half; this was my first trip with the Fuji and first trip to Seattle - photography was not the main reason for going. I still ended up with more that I'm happy with than not, these 4 stand out in particular after my first edits.








    All are .jpg that have been edited in LR - can't wait for proper raw support if the elasticity of the .jpg is any indication the raws will be a joy to work with.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    It has been suggested that I get off the botanicals and try some portraits...so here are some portraits (well, they're really snapshots!). Karsh has nothing to fear here. These pics haven't been posed, or carefully lit.

    The first two are of my 98 year old mother (very bright and active). The second of the two pics is a blow up of the first pic...taken with the 60/2.4.
    Incredible rendering of detail (my mother would kill me if she saw these pics).
    The 60, with its great sharpness, makes for a very unflattering portrait lens...every little blemish and wrinkle revealed in great detail.

    3rd pic: Ivy, my dachsie friend...also taken with the 60...wide open...focus on the eyes. Ivy doesn't like to have her picture taken as you can tell by her expression.

    4th pic: Head of shoulders of little statue in the garden...taken with the 35/1.4.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    So....thanks to Carl.......again

    Carl helped me through the RPP ICC camera profile install (which he so kindly provided to all of us).

    I think I was able to wring a LOT more out of these RAW files than was present in the jpegs.






    Thanks again C.......(I'll play with RPP until Adobe gets it act together).

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I see that the X Pro 1 is a great camera as long as one is willing to live with all the flaws or things not working so perfect. Still a long way to go, but the system has the potential to be a really leading high end mirror less system in a few years from now.

    Till then I decided to just follow these great threads and see the great results, without having to deal with all the not so perfect things of a new system.

    Mixing them up some: 2 botanicals, 1 portrait (?), and 1 architectural.
    All with 60/2.4...continue to be impressed with rendering of fine detail (water drops on flowers, screen mesh on door).

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    A very dull, overcast day down by the lake. Tried doing some XP1 IR with an R72 filter on a Contax G 45mm f/2 Planar, but lighting was just too flat. All processed from raw with RPP.

    Far above Cayuga's waters



    The next two with the Fujinon 60mm Macro.

    Just what we needed - more geese

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    A comparison of the same image from the XP1 with Konica AR 50mm f/1.7, shot at f/2.8. RPP processed raw seems to hold slightly more detail in saturated areas and is more neutral in color balance. Both images received slight (and same) amount of clarity and sharpness adjustment in LR4 before exporting jpegs.

    Processed in RPP with custom profile

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Really liking the RPP rendering, if Adobe doesn't get support into LR soon I may need to venture into the option of using DCRaw to render tiffs and adjust those in LR. That being said - it may be easier to buy a mac then understand how to use DCRaw from the command line in Windows...

    In the mean time here are a couple more from my Seattle trip, first up the birthday girl and the reason we were visiting anyways - then a couple from the freemont farmers market and food truck rodeo:

    Sorry, guys, but wee see photos of a content which should make us think and discuss or even do something. Whether or not a tool puts out technically good files is completely irrelevant in this context. Or did I missunderstand something?

    I think you have misunderstood...not sure if we are on the same page, and as I don't understand your comment or inquiry...sorry...

    A few from today with the 35. I have to figure out how to film bracket...the Velvia is pretty over the top at times.






    I'm going to have to bug Carl again.....I tried to get close to these jpegs (but not so vibrant and saturated) using RPP, but they seemed flat.

    I guess that's another discussion.
