Can you separate the AF from the shutter button and put on another button? I can put AF on the AFL button on my E-P1 and not on the shutter button so I can focus at one point and then simply take pictures without having the AF hunt all the time. So the AEL button is like a manual-focus button and I can then take images fairly quickly at that focus point.
One try with the RPP raw software.

A waterfront walk today with the XP1+CV 28mm f1.9 ASPH. This is one of the few M mount 28s that does not give smeared edges and corners. All from raw in RPP.
Bokeh is also not too bad for a 28 (at f/2.8 below):

My daughter had her 8th grade dance this past Saturday. A few snaps before dinner with the 35.

The conversion seemed to work pretty well. Is it more intuitive then SilkyPix? I've been spoiled by ACR.

Thank you Matt.
I have not used the SilkyPix software, but the RPP software looks very nice with different film emulations. (I think I will send a donation for supporting the software) I normaly use CaptureOne for my raw files and I am waiting for the support in CaptureOne.
I can us AF/AL button to lock/unlock focus already achieved with the shutter button, or to achieve focus in MF mode (but so missing the confirmation), I was looking for the possibility to use the AF/AL button as the main focus actuator, as I usually do on other cameras, but I could not find the way.
Just set the camera to MF and the AF/AL button becomes the only focus actuator.
Maybe you're going to set in the menu, wether it should lock Focus/Exposure/Both.
At least that's how it works on the X100.
Ah got you.
No confirmation on the 100 either, but I set the distance bar to be visible in the VF, so I can check it that way.

Really have enjoyed the images of Carl, Rich, Graham, Trygve, Joe, and BigKidneys over the past few days...thanks to all for the viewing pleasure.
These pics are of an Islamic Center under construction in Boca Raton...this is the second one, by the way. I was attracted by the color...haven't seen this use of color in a religious building before. Shot with 35/1.4, jpegs, and the Velvia film mode...the Velvia really brought out the shades of green.
Had a lot of line straightening to do.. was able to work most of them out thanks to Photoshop.

Thanks Carl, this time I've used V50.
Actually I shooted the dandelion to see if, and in which contions, I could see artifacts or aliasing.
The moonbow was shot in manual mode using bulb exposure and a good old fashioned cable release. What's really funny was that the other folks around me were using the timer display on the back of the X-Pro1 so that they could accurately release their DSLR shutters.
For moonlight shots I followed the normal approach of using a starting point of 4 min @ f/4 & ISO 400 but it was exceptionally bright and so ended up at 1-1/2 minutes to get a reasonable exposure without blowing out the water. White balance was daylight although I tuned the grey point in PS to neutralize it a bit.
The other nice thing about the X-Pro1 is the manual focusing control - for this scene I was able to use the focus scale on the rear LCD to zone focus manually because the light levels were too low to use any form of AF or the viewfinder directly. Just simply dial in the focus and watch the focus indicator so that it was at 100ft -> infinity and you're done.
I processed this using the Fuji raw converter but it only outputs 8bit & Adobe RGB to generate a tiff for PS. I'd rather produce 16bit ProPhotoRGB raws and so maybe I need to look at RPP or Silkypix for that until we have ACR support. Processing was just grey point neutralization, a little shadow/highlight to bring up the shadows and basic tone curve.
The good news is that the jpg looks pretty darned close too! I'm very impressed with the X-Pro1. The corners get a little smeary with the 18mm but overall all of the lenses seem excellent too. I just wish that 14mm were available today.
FYI, here's the out of camera jpg - just resized and sharpened for web - hmm, I think I may revisit the image and tone down that sky in the raw version.

A couple from an abbreviated walk today at the arboretum before the rains came. Both with XP1 and 35 1.4.

Thanks Carl, PenSon, bigkidneys, Graham, scifitographer, Ario and all Fujians. I vote this forum has the most stunning pics! Of course it is you not your camera.

Very nice Rich. In camera BW or post?
I just bought the 60mm and so I completed the set.
I thought it was a macro lens not a microscope

The original jpeg was flat due to all the greens, but the sensor/lens combo held a lot of detail when viewed in greyscale (and more aptly reflected what I saw when I took the picture).
Converted in SEP2 from jpeg.
I guess it's a matter of taste. I'm not a fan of punchy bright yellowish greens so I guess there's my bias.
I am just picking up my X1P today. I understand that you have a profile for the RPP and I was wondering if you could help me with how to install this.
Contact me at [email protected]
Thanks in advance for your help
Well you can always:
1)shoot raw and develop to taste in camera
2)shoot a film bracket with multiple choices
That way you can see what you like best.
If you whish you can also try this profile I have created, the one I normally use:
Lovely image Jolly.
Great shot Graham.
Rich, definitely looks IRish.
Carl, keep up the wonderful posts.
Ario, I may have to try RPP soon.
Matt, very nicely done.
Sorry, for forgetting others, but I can't keep up with this thread.
A split tone monochrome from the Arboretum series with the XP1. This was using the 60mm.

Well done. Looks like Yosemite was the place to be for the moon. I was along the coast and it was too hazy.
