    Simon,

    The first one looks like a tech camera photograph with those straight lines! Fantastic photography.

    The Xpro 1 is amazing as a backpack camera, I put it all in a Think Tank street walker, cinch the straps and forget it's there. Perhaps soon, I'll have the hand grip for the Xpro 1 too. I just got the 60mm, can't wait to try it with my Hensel lights!

    I think the tower shot would be awesome if you lightened the two buildings

    I was playing with a new 60mm macro for my Olympus camera. Finally my Fuji really started to get upset at the complete lack of attention....so I had to oblige. All with the 60 macro. All from RAW with LR4

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Gorgeous flowers Terry - really wish things were starting to come up around here but there is still a lot of snow... A couple more from hiking today, overcast with snow and ice. June in the mountains around Calgary...

    First up - the better half and our dog just after our lunch, then some snow/ice details at the lake that was the destination for today. Forgot to add originally - all images from raw processed in LR4.1.




    Cheers,
    Simon

    This was from RPP but the the LR version was almost as good despite the water colour effect on distant foliage and both showed more detail than JPEG.

    Got mine out today to try and get this poppy as it burst out. They are such pretty things, almost looks like someone drizzled chocolate on it.:too cool:

    Thanks Terry, I'll need to ask my wife what variety it is, she is the gardener here - I'll try and get a shot of that flower when it comes out fully, but the weather has broken down now unfortunately.

    If this was for me, thanks....I took my queue from the farmers market comment. Flowers were from the market. I took them home and have very nice natural light in my apartment. All were hand held. Many were high ISO to stop down and get better DOF.

    Me too... I want to do more B&W work with the X-Pro1.. I miss the Dynamic B&W mode of the GH2 and GF1... I'm sure there is a way to set something similar up using the custom settings.. just have not gotten there yet.

    Oh... you would ask me THAT question. I get emails all the time from my website asking the same question and honestly, every single photo seems to go through different paths to the final image...

    I use Photoshop CS5 and since there is no RAW support I am working strictly with JPGs for now... so here goes....

    Bring the photo into Photoshop
    I rely almost exclusivly on the Adjustment Layers in CS5...
    Adjust levels layer
    Apply a curves layer
    For B&W I use the B&W adjustment layer and tweak with the color sliders.
    I often dodge and burn
    finally, I crop, resize and sharpen
    I usually sharpen using the High Pass method
    once all of that is done.. I save.


    I'm going to throw in some heresy here... I use Picasa for my catalog and will often play with the adjustments in Picasa (non-destructive) before I pull them into Photoshop (in original form, no adjustments) to do the work on the photo.. I've been doing this for a long time and it is part of my routine.

    I've tried every version of Lightroom and found it not to my liking but may have to bite the bullet just to get RAW support for the X-Pro1. I will have to fork over close to $600 or $700 to upgrade to Photoshop CS6 because it is part of my Web Premium Suite and Adobe will not allow me to upgrade just one element of that package.. you have to do the full boat.

    I posted then removed this pic, thinking it was too pedestrian and not of sufficient interest. But I've reconsidered. My wife and I find there to be a bit of a surreal quality to it; I hope you like it. There is lots of purple fringing at the upper right where the grass appears against the bright sky. This is such a fun camera, I'm not sure why that is.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Sun came out for a moment, so managed to get a backlit macro of the poppy that has almost opened since this morning. Did have to use raw to recover this, but the JPG wasn't too bad.

    I didn't have the proper shade on the macro because I currently have a solar filter taped to it for the transit of Venus.

    Got some really weird regular pattern in the lower part of the photo (cropped off in this photo). Suspect sensor does odd things when really overloaded, or it was reflection from sensor.

    Tom - I was trying to guess what the cat was looking at....also in LR you should be able to get rid of the fringing pretty easily.

    Another reason for me to buy and learn LR. Will it remove the fringing on jpg's? BTW, the cat was actually grazing on and rubbing against the grass, but he definitely gives the appearance of watching a critter. He is a keen hunter and he likes to show off his mice and voles.

    Terry you are right, unfortunately the original picture was badly underexposed so I did my best with LR.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Dave,

    That pattern might be from stray light through the rear of the viewfinder using OVF. The pattern looks like a sensor array, so perhaps try the same photograph or similar lighting set-up with the EVF, or set the display back to LCD only, to see if that mitigates the issue.

    Here's one from the Valley...

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Interesting idea John, I was using EVF anyway as it was in macro mode at the time, but there is no optical path from the OVF to the sensor at all. I believe I saw a photo exhibiting this pattern once before, it was one taken by Terry with a variable ND filter which at the time I assumed was a reflection of the sensor from the back of the filter, but now I'm not so sure. I'll have to do some tests.

    Love the old tractor.

    Yes I know, the second one is cropped too much at the top, my fault I was in a hurry to set up before the sun went and had the horizon squint, didn't leave enough space above to straighten without losing the top of the pole.

    I think there is some light bouncing around somewhere with the filter. On only of the Oly's I think E-PL2 we saw that dotted flare problem but it was usually a magenta color and again I remember seeing dotted flare with the Foveon cameras.

    With the strong backlight and angular backlight in the image I wouldn't get too concerned ( but that is just me). Yes, I know that it messed up the shot but I just mean not too convened that there is a flaw with the camera.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thanks Terry I was curious about it, and under what conditions it showed up.

    I can clone it out in any case. I wasn't using a filter of any kind in that shot, so the reflection must be within the lens itself. I don't think it is the way the camera is handling the processing of the data, just an optical effect. It kind of startled me when I saw it. Normally I would use a longer lens shade in those circumstances, so it shouldn't be too much of a concern.

    EDIT:
    I found the photo where you had the ND filter glare, my memory was entirely wrong, it exhibits none of the effects I was seeing.

    Hello everyone! I thought I'd have a go at posting in here with this fun camera.
