    A few from the last week or so with the X-Pro1

    I've not posted much from the X-Pro1 lately and thought I would share some from the last couple of weeks. My 60mm should arrive via UPS this afternoon.. looking forward to working with that lens in the near future.

    I continue to be amazed by the high ISO capability of the X-Pro1. It beats my 5D MKII in every respect.. not to mention weight and bulk.

    The photos below were taken with the 18mm and 35mm

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Very nice ones Jim. This camera continues to intrigue me but I'm not going to consider until Fall when everything should be announced at Photokina.

    I especially liked the one of the gauges. I would not have thought I would zero in on that if you had described them to me first but the level of detail even in the darker areas invites one in to look more. I also enjoyed the interior because I shot interiors working for manufacturers in the furniture industry for a number of years.

    Looking forward to seeing more.

    Beautiful images Jim. I really liked the red wall/green wood trim shot and the image of the boiler valves and dials.

    Carl......the CV12 definitely has less vignetting, and better corners than the CV15. I like the colors better and the lower contrast lends itself to better conversions to B+W.

    I don't fish as much as I used to.....it's mainly a time thing. I am looking forward to a trip to Utah in a few weeks. Some flyfishing is in the forecast. (I am such a bad flycaster that I would be very happy with a good rollcast).

    Those are really great shots, Jim. I particularly like the steam engine interior. What lens, f-stop and ISO was that shot at?

    Aswin these are some of the best shots I've ever seen of Seattle. What awesome light plus the secret Fuji sauce that just seems to leave my mouth hang open.

    Thanks so much, Terry. For how much Seattle has been photographed, and for what how highly I regard you, this is a huge compliment. Thank you deeply. Fuji's special sauce (that marvelous sensor) was hard at work...

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Ashwin, that's some special light there. I don't think that I've ever seen the top of the space needle look so brick red before when I've shot it myself.

    I love image #1! It says it all about Kerry Park for me.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Ashwin, great shots of the Seattle skyline.. the last time I was there was in 1962 for the Seattle World's Fair... been a long time.. hope to get back one day.

    By the way, my 60mm arrived yesterday.. loving it so far, great micro-contrast.. not as slow as many posts have led me to believe.

    Hey guys, some beautiful shots from you all. I have to say what a great sensor, I'm still resisting, but it shows what a great performer the sensor and lenses will do in the right hands!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thanks, Jim, Graham, Joe, and Landshark.

    Graham, the brick red color comes from a paint job that they did for the 50th anniversary. This was the original color back when Jim visited it during the world's fair!

    I think the top will remain painted as such for the next few months, and then revert back to a more "traditional" color scheme, though I rather like the color, truth be told...

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Ashwin: Yes a Hoya R72 infrared filter.

    Terry: Actually AF does work because it is contrast detect, so no problem with focus of IR being different to visible wavelength. The great thing is you can compose on the viewfinder (LCD) because the camera is sensitive enough to actually produce an image. I have stuck to ISO 400. Some of the time I used MF, and am generally about f4 or 5.6 so not too critical. I have taken some handheld shots at ISO 3200 but obviously a tripod and longer times gives lower noise. I'm new to this and having a great time, I expect the novelty will wear off, but while the sun is shining here I thought I would give it a go. Some hotspots at times with the 18mm especially, depends on aperture, but fairly easy to repair. Have not tried false colour stuff yet, I prefer monochrome IR personally. I have been converting to TIF from Raw then using the SilverEffects inPlugin in Aperture. They look pretty good on a large monitor, but not so great scaled down for the web.

    The guy in the first photo kept really still for the 3 second exposure! - He was an interesting old bloke, who had a long chat with me about his profession as a botanist and although he could hardly walk even with a stick , was out there looking for tortoiseshell butterflies today. I ended up taking a photo of him and his wife and friend with their camera as they wanted to get one of the three of them for a friend abroad.

    I prefer the red top too TBH. I hope they keep it, plus it'll launch a whole new market for Seattle images with the new red top

    One image (2 shot stitch) from my first gorge walk of the season today. XP1 with 35 1.4 and tripod. I blew the highlights in a bunch of shots because I wasn't paying attention to exposure . I managed to partially recover the highlights in the raws used for this image, but really need to expose carefully for highlights in dark gorges like this.

    Louis, no.. this was taken with the 18mm.. a little to cramped in the cab of that old locomotive to use the 35m. Glad you enjoyed this one.

    Fujinon 60mm has arrived..

    Here is one taken this morning as the sun began to rise in Texas. The lens did not arrive until late yesterday so I had no opportunity to play until this morning. Just as well, I love sunrises.

    Fuji X-Pro1 with 60mm f/8 1/1000 ISO 250

    The 18mm? That looks like some of the test shots I've seen with the Zeiss Distagon 28/2 on the D700. Very impressive price/performance.

    Carl......this is a VERY nice capture. It is amazingly sharp corner to corner and has such a nice balance. Also, the color processing (slightly desaturated?) really brings out the content of the image.

    Matt, are you posting out of camera jpegs? And if so, what jpeg settings are you using?


    I didn't realize I was balding so much. Must be something wrong with the camera.
