    A rainy Jubilee bank holiday means chance to play around with previous photos. This one processed in RPP initially with further mods in LR4

    Lee, no rain here for the Jubilee in Scotland, until a few minutes ago anyway.

    That's gross! I'm not normally one for Pomp and Circumstance but what a weekend! You know on the River Pageant, they (the Royals) were all moving from one foot to another, supposedly in time to music but I think they just wanted to go to the bathroom. Well, it was cold and wet, I couldn't last more than 20 minutes ...

    Anyway, Och Aye the Noo ...

    P.S. I seriously think it's all great and many folk elsewhere in the world would be wanting to have such a performance ...

    Some people write the x1 pro AF to be slower than the x100 AF. Can you guys confirm this? And if so how much slower is it?

    Hi Lee,

    It has a certain Monty Python look to it!

    We thought we had stumbled across the Wicker-man in Newburgh today. They seem to have joyfully combined the Olympics, the Jubilee and their annual Scarecrow Festival.

    We have still got the Olympic Torch to see passing our house later in the month. Oh - and the transit of Venus which according to BBC is "happening tonight"!

    Hope you had a good day despite the weather.

    Sorry don't have an X100, but I find the X-Pro 1 OK for my needs. I believe you are correct though, reports seem to indicate the X100 is faster in AF.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    From an hour or two ago, a fleeting glimpse or two, plus a couple of pictures.
    My son and I had to drive towards the north to find a small gap in the clouds, and even then it wasn't all that big, so clouds were across the images.
    What a buzz to see it in the flesh though, bigger than expected, and easily visible naked eye.
    Quick shot with the Zeiss AS63/840, Zeiss solar filter, and a Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. 1/1000th second, ISO6400.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thank you Terry.
    It is a passion of mine (the astro bit I mean), but boy oh boy a frustrating session today. Once in a lifetime event, which the weather gods seemed destined to spoil. I had actually given any hope away of seeing today, but the clouds sort of parted a bit, although we drove to find those small slithers of semi-clear sky.
    Most of my astro gear is set up at home, but given the weather we hurriedly threw the scope and the X-Pro into the car and drove. Fortunately we saw it, and what an absolute buzz to witness this in the eyepiece. The memory will last for many years. The pictures? Well, a few hurried shots, nothing flash, but again a record.
    Depending on where you are, make sure you take a look though. It finishes here in a tad over an hour, and the rain is setting in real good, so my hurried look was all I'll get. Happy though, very.

    Gary, glad you caught it! - yours is the first photo I have seen of this transit, as I just tuned in here before going to the BBC site.

    Clouded out here, same as the last time a few years back...

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Just another example of the excessive smoothing in LR4.1 as compared to RPP. I also applied moire removal (100%) to the RPP tiff file to remove artifacts in the wood grain. These are 100% crops from a LR screen grab.

    hi,

    I would like to share a picture of my first test Foto session with the Fuji X pro 1 as portrait camera. The camera behave different to my H3D, it needs a different work flow, but I get much more flexibility. I love the result.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thanks to everyone posting Lightroom 4.1 results which are somewhat discouraging.
    I use Aperture (still waiting), but I did download a demo version of LR.
    Bottom line: I could not improve on Fuji's OOC jpegs.
    The jpegs below (one of which I posted awhile back) are from an amateur video shoot.
    I had about five minutes to take these photos while the video camera was shooting.
    Nothing special, just an example of the 60mm as a portrait lens in natural light.
    All shot wide open.

    Beautiful work Joe. You are a master of the XP1 jpeg. Do you set a custom white balance on location or are you using a preset?

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I went to the Cornell Arboretum with my wife to get plants for her garden and while she was looking at the plant sale I took a walk along their woodland stream path nearby. Lighting was horrible mid-day bright sun and deep shade, but nice and cool. I salvaged this shot processed in RPP (default profile in latest beta). XP1 with the 18mm f/2.

    Lee,

    I am trying not to look over here as I just purchased an Olympus OM-D. However there are too many great shots over here to ignore them all.

    The 2nd one above is great. It creates a wonderful feel of order & simplicity at the same time.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Here's another from my daughter's high school graduation. Although out of focus, I still like it as it captures her emotion of the moment.

    The focus point was towards the top center of the frame, but the camera seemed intent on focusing elsewhere. I was doing continuous shooting. Should I have used continuous focus instead of single? I know this camera can be a challenge for moving targets, but I think user error may have been the major cause. The focus point likely did not actually fall on her in this shot. This camera is not forgiving or easy.

    Thanks Jim. The scene could have been shot with any camera. Trouble with web versions is they don't tell the whole story. Poking out of the red soil are potato leaves (or something). In the RPP version I saw them clearly. JPEG and RAW in LR I would almost have passed them by.

    I am sure the OM-D is great. The Fuji is pretty good too though :-)

    I am finding a lot to like about the OM-D. I am sure the Fuji is pretty good too.

    I still like the photo and if its not the camera it must be the photographer

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    A research greenhouse at the Cornell Arboretum. The red wall in the far room caught my attention, so I kept the room in full color and monochromed the rest. XP1+18mm f/2

    Great idea Carl and well executed!

    BUT, that one leaf, that goes in the coloured part confuses me. Sorry

    Recent Work With the X-Pro1

    I've been using the X-Pro1 for over a month now and it has become my carry-with-me-all-the-time camera. I continue to be amazed by the capabilities of this camera and the three lenses. I thought I would share some recent work I have done with the X-Pro1. I've been playing quite a bit with the macro function and really enjoy it. You can see more on my website in the Fuji section.... the direct link is Fuji X-Pro1 Photography by Jim Radcliffe

    I've shot these roses before with another camera but the X-Pro1 produces a better image.



    The macro capability of the 35 and 60 is much better than any camera I have owned.



    Saw this guy on my window the other night and shot him at ISO 3200 handheld.. it was quite dark and I was too lazy to get the tripod out of the car trunk.



    More macro...
