    The weather has been awful this weekend, but I did manage to get out and take some shots in the rain. Obviously captive birds, but lovely never the less.

    Carl.......very nice picture. Thanks for sharing the processing info.....I still switch over to RPP for individual shots, especially the ones that contain foliage. LR4 seems okay for most.

    Thanks Rich. I'm doing the same. I import all of my raws into LR4.1 and then check landscapes with distant foliage that have detail I want preserved. If it looks bad in LR then I will process in RPP and bring back to LR as a tiff.

    So far, decidedly undecided. I think the 18mm is pretty underrated, though.

    Me too, I have the 18 and the 35, and wanted to only use the 35 simply due to the press for it, and corresponding press against the 18. Bollocks, it's a great lens, and in a recent trip overseas, the 18 got used possibly 2/3rd's of the time. Yep, no argument, the 35 is a cracker, but the 18 is no slouch either.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Rich, yes the Hoya R72 and the great thing is you can TTL manual focus or AF with it. So no need to make any adjustments to scale focus as would otherwise be the case. There is a slight hot spot when stopped down but generally it isn't a problem in mono conversions. Easy to correct it in post if necessary in Nik software.

    I have never tried IR with any other camera so cannot say how it compares, but I am very pleased with the results it is giving.

    Beautiful David, I'm looking forward to using mine, but for I/R you need decent (sunny) weather, something that has been on the shortlist here of late. The initial testing I did showed promise, not quite as "simple" as the M8, but quite good just the same.

    Sounds like a good workflow and giving you great images. I've been playing with conversions in RPP with a gamma (2.2) curve and various monochrome film simulations followed by export as a tiff with clarity tweak in Topaz Adjust.

    Sample taken with the 35mm Fujinon (it also will hotspot when stopped down).

    Still not really sure what to think. I have used my NEX enough to really appreciate "shooting at the waist," but it's growing on me. I wish it had more predictive AF (like a DSLR), but 25 points isn't bad either. ISO 100 would be nice for daytime shooting...

    We were on the southern edge of the huge storms that battered Duluth tonight (120 miles from us). We were fortunate, only getting about 1/4" whereas Duluth got close to 10". This was the second time that I've seen a rainbow that stretches completely across the sky from horizon to horizon. I couldn't capture the whole bow. My daughter saw it first and excitedly called me to come look. I decide to shoot at f/1.4 to capture her OOF in the foreground.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Well after lurking for an eternity, and throwing the odd ringside comment in occasionally, it is about time I put an image up.
    I actually have a few travel shots, but need to work on the processing.
    Instead, I'll go in a different direction here.
    Another passion of mine is astrophotography, and I have used all manner of cameras over the years, DSLR style being one. If anything the astro imaging is best suited with a dedicated, cooled CCD camera, but apart from a few modifications the chip is essentially the same or very similar to what you and I use every day. Cooling via a Peltier cooler, and usually no filter on the front of the chip, so full spectrum.
    Last night it was crisp, above zero degrees, just, and with the odd intermittent cloud passing. I slipped the X-Pro 1 on the the rear of the little 80mm refractor, and used either a focal reducer (for the M8-M20 shot) or a field flattener (for the Omega Cent shot).
    With the reducer the focal length becomes about388mm, and with the flattener it remains about it's native 480mm. Yo will see that the spacing distance with the reducer was not bang on, so we have "warp factor 5" happening in the extreme corners, this is a simple fix, get the spacing correct.
    M8 and M20 are in the Sagittarius area, both are just visible to the naked eye, and spectacular through a decent sized scope. M8 is known as the Lagoon Nebula, and M20 known as the Trifid.
    Omega Centaurus is also known as NGC5139, and is THE most spectacular globular cluster in the sky, it was directly overhead last night.
    Focus was effected by way of a Bahtinov mask, difficult but not impossible, and the magnified live view really helped.
    ISO was in the vicinity of3200 or 1600 for the M8/M20 shots, and ISO800 for the Omega shots.
    M8/M20 was 6 shots each 45 seconds, I used a cable release and the bulb setting. If I had used my noodle, the T setting would have been better, but dark/cold/old age conspired.
    The Omega shots were 10 shots at 45 seconds. One really neat idea is the counter timer visible on the rear LCD, makes my astro shots simpler, although an intervalometer would be better, I could then program a series and walk away.

    Great Astro work Gary. What software do you use for the stacking? Using Raw or JPG?
    How does the Fuji compare with other cameras you have tried on for astrophotography?

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi David,
    thank you. I reckon the "cleanliness" of the Fuji is way better, but really I need to test it some more, and these were real quick and dirty shots, more to see if it would actually work even.
    Used RAW, but converted them to TIFF via SilkyPix, then used AstroArt to stack them.
    Ordinarily I would use Images Plus when I use the Sony a700, as Images Plus can convert the RAW, but this Fuji will not be supported by IP as of yet, so I went another way.
    I had used briefly the NEX5 for the odd astro shot, and the one thing I missed with not having it last night was the tilting LCD. Believe me, the scope pointing directly up, means a lot of groveling around to see the LCD, not pleasant.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    There are some great macro shots in here, its making me lust for the 60mm and here I thought once I picked up the 18mm to add to the 35mm I'd be done...

    Here is another small set; two from some hiking last weekend and then one from the only short break I had to walk about on a business trip.






    Cheers,
    Simon
