    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi all, been lurking for a while. My XPro1 arrived last week and it is a kick. Coming from a 20D with 17-55 2.8 , 50 1.4 and 70-200 4. Main reason for switching was the smaller form factor. For all the complaints on-line about the focusing and such, I find this camera a ton of fun and I don't find much to complain about. OOC jpg's are nice, though I wonder when we'll get Aperture support...
    I'm using the OVF a ton - what a blast.
    Thanks for viewing.

    Wow, this thread has slowed. Not many XE-1 shooters here? I swapped the XPro-1 for the XE-1 (like the compactness of the latter). Here are a few taken recently...

    Ashwin, I have a heap of images; and I will get around to posting some soon. Apart from not being able to select less then -2/3 EV on the internal flash, it's excellent. Paired with the DP2 Merrill, a dream team, for me.

    Works very well (especially with the C1 conversion). Aerials are tricky. Here even the optical viewfinder was a plus. The lens was at f/4 and infinity fixed (taped it :-)).

    With better raw support at the horizon we will use the XP1 more again. Together with our GH3/GH2 kit.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I see a lot of really attractive black and white images from the Fuji, do you guys shoot in the BW modes of the camera and take the JPEG, or do you mostly convert from RAW?

    I am really attracted by the colours (and BW) of this camera, I still hesitate because of the sheer number of cameras I have gone through over the years.

    Cheers
    Bernhard

    Can only answer for me. I use LR for converting to B&W.

    Yes, they were taken at a Bus Museum when they had a classic car show on. The weather was very poor as you can probably tell, but enjoyed it never the less, especially with so many eccentric characters around.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    I got the XE1 as a back up for M9. It came with the Kit lens.
    Having used nex7, 5n and OM-D, this camera is definitely slow in operation overall. Focus speed is actually not bad, but probably because I'm very used to CD AF system and know where to point the camera.

    One huge problem is, the EVF/LCD unlike the sony, does not let you judge exposure. There is no true, what you see is what you get (live view) like the Sony NEX system. Coupled with the fact that there is auto brightness for EVF and LCD, I've spent the first few hours shooting with EV+/- based on the EVF. I can deal with histogram, but that clutters the EVF.

    Other minor things, shooting bracketed shots takes about 5-10 seconds to store. You can not take any shots while this is going on.

    The self-timer setting will not stay if the camera is turned off.

    When Manual Lens is mounted, you STILL have to switch from AF to MF to enable the Magnification function.

    You have to use the AF button to preselect the manual focus magnification area. It would be nice to to be able to move around after you push the zoom button.

    Of course I'm not processing any of my RAW files, because I can already tell they are crap in LR compare to what SilkyPix is showing me.


    The redeeming quality is obviously the image quality and the excellent kit zoom.

    I think so too. Here the X-Pro1 shines. This was very harsh light.

    Playing with the RAW File Converter EX

    I downloaded the latest version of Capture One (Version 7) from their website this morning and spent some time playing with it. Frankly, I found it a bit overwhelming and a bit difficult to use.. but I will chalk that up to my total inexperience in using the program. I did not find it intuitive at all.

    When I came home I decided to also give the software that came with the X-Pro1 a shot, RAW File Converter EX powered by SilkyPix. While I prefer using Photoshop CS6 and ACR I did find that this program did a pretty good job.

    Here is a shot I developed with the RAW File Converter EX powered by SilkyPix. My apologies for the Cat Shot... but I did like the play of afternoon light on his eyes. This was shot at f/2.8 using the 18-55mm at 1/125s. I would have preferred to use the 35mm but had to take the shot or the moment might have passed.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Jim,
    I have to agree with you, as a first time user of both the Fuji (3 days) and Capture One (today), I struggled with working on a RAW file. I had an image that I printed from a jpeg and from a RAW file using ACR and PS6 and after downloading CO I eventually got a print from Capture One. I feel I now have a print from an RAF file that is as least equal to the jpeg if not just a little better, but what I was very pleased with is that the Capture One print from RAF file with no understanding of the software yet had a depth and roundness of the print that I did not see in the other two. It was good enough that I will be spending some time to get to know this program and I am looking forward to using my new XE-1.

    Jim, was not very clear but I thought he means RAW File Converter EX. Or not?
    Sorry, the cat shot was with the RAW File Converter, not CO.

    RAW File Converter can be a good starting point but misses some central features:

    - Highlight Recovery
    - Opening shadows
    - Not sure about sharpening either

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Great examples here, thanks for sharing folks.

    Quick question, can you develop in camera to tiff? Fuji obviously have the best raw conversion in-camera at the moment, and for now I'd be happy to do the critical base conversion in camera - provided I could get full, uncompressed colour resolution output.

    Thanks

    No but just read apparently this feature has been requested a lot and fuji is considering it. If they are doing this they need to build a tiff at 14-bits and prophoto rgb space. That would keep a lot of the data.
