    US Open


    Dimly lit restaurant near midnight..

    Very nice, Steve. I'm impressed with the detail in that first shot.

    These really are great, Aswhin... top to bottom. Especially like the last three of the first set, and the first shot of the the second.

    Uwe, like the event photos, lovely tones and details. Only comment is the last one looks like the white balance is a bit different from the others, perhaps too warm - it would be fine if the sky wasn't in the shot.

    I agree - something's not quite right with the colour balance as the skin tones seem a little 'sickly' to my eye. (#4 seems the most natural). Great subjects and composition - although the eyeballing from that horse is a bit disturbing to me

    Beautiful infrared, David. Is that X Pro-1 converted, or are you using a filter?

    Thanks Lloyd, I used a Hoya R72 filter and the camera JPG was then post processed in Aperture with the SilverEfex Pro plugin.

    Thanks for the info, David. Is that with a Fuji lens? And do you focus manually and adjust the focus for the infrared spectrum?

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Yes it is the 18mm Fuji lens and I just let it do its thing with AF, as there is enough sensitivity at IR for the contrast AF to work with what IR it sees with the filter on, so no focus correction required.

    Its nice to be able to actually frame in live view with the filter on the lens. I generally stick to ISO 400 if I am shooting on a sunny day with a tripod, though I can hold hold at higher ISO if I am stuck.

    There is a small hot spot with the lens at some apertures, but can be corrected in post and is not a problem for me.

    Don't like it either. But this is an event where your choices are more then limited. THere were many cameras and also two video guys at the same spot.

    Note on processing: Fuji Raw Converter gets much better detail but LR better Highlights (e.g. sky). Not perfect right now.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi Uwe, lack of raw support in Aperture is hurting me badly. (I do have LR4 but prefer Aperture generally for my workflow). If I do need to process XP-1 raw I generally use the Fuji Raw Converter to create TIF files and process later in Aperture.

    Have tried other raw converters but they either have too many artefacts or too much smearing. The out of camera JPG files are good enough for most of my uses, but I'd like an easier raw solution.

    I use The Fuji Raw Converter and then LR. Silkypix has better detail but is not good in highlight recovery.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Can someone dropbox me a couple of X-Pro1 RAW files? I want to get an idea of how they would fit into my workflow. I am getting an X-E1, but the files should be very similar if not the same.

    Fuji XPro1 connected to a Nikon AI adapter connected to a Kenko 1.4x connected through a T adapter to a little refractor telescope Scopos 66ED.

    This little telescope i, photographically speaking, a 400mm F/6.1

    You can see how little it is here:

    and here: http://www.scoop.it/t/scopos-66-ed





    This picture was taken at very close distance with the same telescope. Funny

    Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    OK, this has to be done so it might as well be me. Granted, no one has any images of their own, so I submit this press sample image which will legitimize this camera to all GetDPI members:

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Just so you are aware Moonshine, it is written in the unpublished by-laws of GetDPI (The Book of Guy and Jack) that "no camera shall be considered legitimate until it has posted a cat picture." Fuji, who have obviously been lurking here at GetDPI, picked up on this a provided a cat image to legitimize their new camera right away. Clever fellows, these Fujis.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    These were shot in late July. Possibly the kit zoom was not available at the time? I'm just guessing here.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    The 35 f/1.4 has a fantastic "look" which can sell the system. Performance with AF leaves some to be desired, but the rendering of the lens is faultless... IMHO....

    I was pretty sure one of the promo videos Fuji shot showing photographers using the X-E1 appeared to have the zoom on the camera. However still no actual samples from it.

    The dream three-lens kit for the x-E1:

    the new 14/2.8, the stellar 35/1.4, and the very useful 60/2.4. I will be getting all three.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    I am really torn as to whether to buy the X-E1. I have the X-Pro1 and the 18, 35 & 60. The OLED EVF will be the tipping factor for me. I've not really heard or read anything regarding how good or bad it is. My guess is that it will be better than the EVF of the X-Pro1 but will it be "that much better" to warrant a purchase?

    If the firmware upgrade addresses the AF issue of the X-Pro1 it might be a waste of money for me and I am just a bit concnerned by the lower resolution of the LCD on the back of the X-E1.

    At any rate, it's a good time to be a photographer with all the new gear coming out.

    The new FF compact Nikon looks very interesting but I am afraid the fixed focal length and the high price tag will be a deal breaker for me.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Jim, for you, maybe only the 14/2.8. You have the others and apparently the firmware update speeds up the AF on the 60. The aspect that makes the X-E1 compelling (and I did play with an X-Pro 1 in Torino when I was there on a job) is the smaller and lighter form factor (I was coming off the full Sony A850 line then and the X-Pro is a bit big for me) and the adjustable diopter, and all this with the same awesome sensor. And

    At any rate, it's a good time to be a photographer with all the new gear coming out.
    Says it all.

    Says it all.
    That is my dilema... I like smaller, lighter but there is a point of diminishing returns. The X-Pro1 is very comfortable in my hands by why they did not include and adjustable diopter is simply amazing to me.

    If the 2.0 Firmware update does, in fact, make it equal the performance of the new cam.. then I will probably stick with the X-Pro1.. but I have to find the proper diopter for my camera.. it's bugging me to death.

    Jim, the diopters aren't that hard to find. What number do you need?

    I have no idea. I have to use two different strength of reading glasses: +1.25 for computer and +1.50 for reading magazines.

    It would be nice if fuji dealers had the complete set for you to try so you would know exactly what works best.... As I said, tremendous oversight on Fuji's part in not building a diopter into the viewfinder.

    It isn't too expensive to get both
