    Thanks Lee. The weather has been superb. I'm kicking myself that I missed the Aurora last night.

    Lovely shot David. What technique did you use to capture the IR image? Filters? Post processing? Please elaborate. I want to do this with my X-E1 when it arrives. I used to do this with my M8.

    Carlos, Yes Hoya IR filter and I use Nik Silver Efex Pro plugin in Aperture for PP. Most shots are from the ooc JPG.
    I generally use ISO 400, F4 which gives a shutter speed of around a second, (other apertures on the 18mm give more of a noticeable hotspot) so needs a tripod or steady place to put the camera. As I use the JPGs I do manually adjust the WB in the camera. AF works fine.

    That would be a Hoya 92 filter?

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Another from the Kirtland Historic District, Kirtland, Ohio.

    I have to say that I'm somewhat disappointed in the overall sharpness I'm getting from the 18mm in landscape shots, even stopped down. I actually processed this one to a Tiff in SilkyPix (which is about as fun as having a root canal!), and then finished it up on Lightroom. The leaves and detail in the distance look painted. Jim seems to be getting impressive sharpness and detail in his landscape shots. Which I could find that in mine. Suggestions are welcome.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Like number 2 most Lloyd.

    Regarding the 18mm it isn't the sharpest in the corners, I usually shoot at f5.6 to f8.
    I use JPG most of the time, but best results have been from raw processed files done with Photoraw on the iPad! Other raw processors either have that painterly effect on foliage or have artefacts on edges.

    Looking forward to the 14mm Fuji lens, and some better raw processors.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Lloyd, the Silkypix one came out warmer, how does the first compare if you re-adjust warmness in LR to match?

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    David: Thanks for the insights. The softness and painterly effects I'm seeing are in the center of the images. I haven't really looked at the corners that much. Ironically, a couple of images I shot with the 18mm last week were picked up by a magazine. Go figure. And I'm with you, I'm looking forward to a better raw processor.

    Steve: I agree, it is warmer. I guess I could match them. However, my concern is that even the SiklyPix processed image has the painterly effects/artifacts, albeit there are less of them.

    Lloyd - if you are on a mac try RPP: Raw Photo Processor (RPP)

    More detail in foliage but also more artifacts ...

    Lee
    I do no know if we are talking about the same artifacts, but I found that just removing some color noise (as it is removed in LR4 by default) the artifacts are mostly gone.

    The painterly effects I get with some raw processing is all over the image, but is dependent on the type of image. Very fine natural details like foliage show it the most. It isn't much of a concern at normal screen sizes for me.

    Congrats on the magazine images.

    The artefacts I get with other processors like RPP are again image dependent and show up on straight edges and highlights in water. I seem to have a knack at taking images that have these kind of things.

    Saying all that I am happy with the JPGs for most things.

    I've yet to shoot the right kind of subject matter to really bring out the strange processing artifacts... but I've shot near-zero landscapes..

    Welcome and nice image to start with.

    I managed to get out and take a few shots this morning between showers. At a market I was approached by another photographer who was curious to know about the X-Pro 1 camera.

    The guy that was demonstrating this HiFi record deck was also intrigued by the XP-1.

    Thanks Steve. Most things I've shot with the 18, other than landscapes have been okay. (BTW, the two shots that made the mag. were not landscapes.)

    Fuji X-Pro1 at the Chinese Lantern Festival

    No, I was not in Hong Kong (although it is on my Bucket List of places to visit) I was at the State Fair of Texas where I saw one the most amazing exhibits I have ever seen in my life. It is called the Chinese Lantern Festival. I had the opportunity to walk through the area while the Chinese artisans were putting these displays together. It is art, pure and simple. The workmanship and attention to detail is absolutely amazing. I was told by one of the officials that it took three months to assemble everything.. and what you see here is but a fraction of what is on display.

    By the way, I did not bump the color in these shots.. this is exactly how it looks at night. The colors were so vivid that I made sure the X-Pro1 was set to Provia/Standard. All photos were taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 and the 18mm. Enjoy!

    Damn I love this camera!



    The display above was about 30 feet tall.. huge and stunning in appearance.



    The above shot is of the entrance to the exhibit area, shot from the side.



    These "statues" are composed of thousands of tiny bottles of colored water hand laced to a metal frame and lit from within.











    If you would like to read about this exhibit, Click on the link below. It is truly amazing.... and so is the X-Pro1.

    Chinese Lantern Festival

    Enjoy!

    Oh there were crowds.. I waited and waited until I had a few seconds with no one around to take the shots.. the crowd tended to ebb and flow.

    By the way, I have noticed that on really bright days using the EVF becomes problematic due to parasitic light entering the viewfinder. What is needed is an eyecup.. so today I ordered one that was designed for the Nikon FM2 which uses the same size diopter as the X-Pro1.. hoping it will work as I enjoy using my manual focus lenses but the light that bleeds in to the EVF makes it sometimes difficult to see when you have critical focus. I'll let you know how it works out.

    Nice. And very interesting. Where is this. Looks similar to the old railroad near Lexington, VA.

    More decay and memories in the auto-graveyard

    I took a few more shots in the auto-graveyard the other day with the X-Pro1 and the 18mm. Note the wasp nest in first one, near the bottom right.. I did not see it until they made themselves known to me.

    These are really wonderful images, Jim. For my part, I'm really struggling to get clean sharp images with the 18mm. Wish I knew your secret!

    I've heard others say that the 18mm is not up to par with the 35 & 60 but I just have not encountered issues with it. I often shoot wide so I am looking into the Voigtlander ULTRA WIDE-HELIAR 12mm F5.6 Aspherical

    Take a look at this group of photos taken with it: Voigtlander ULTRA WIDE-HELIAR 12mm F5.6 Aspherical - a set on Flickr

    And also this one: http://markhilliardatelier.wordpress...-fuji-x-pro-1/

    It's a pricey lens but from what I have seen online it works great with the X-Pro1 and results in an actual 18mm field of view.
