    edited in lightroom using some presets i've made, basic tone curve edits to change the black and white points.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Weather is a bit warmer here in Toronto to-day. Have been waiting for a little bit of sun so I can go out. Went to Allens Garden and try out my Nikon 35mm f/2D with a no-name adapter from China. Manual focus with 3x magnification is ok but not accurate all the time due to hand shake. Most were taken in f/4.0. It would be better if I had brought along a tripod, but then I may not be close enough for close up. Maybe I should buy a Nikon 105mm micro and use the tripod. All photos were taken in Provia, but converted to Vivia in-camera (for some). One was converted to B&W. The in-camera conversion is quite nice and fast. Here are some attached. Your comments are appreciated.

    The X-E1 is a great cam for the museum. Doesn't draw a a lot of attention.

    Do you use a generic manual M-to-X adapter?

    Re: Fun With The Fuji X100s

    Has there been any comment about a black X100s? or is that going to be release like the black x100 was, late in the model life and expensive?

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Nathan,
    I can see why everyone is raving about the 35mm Fuji lens. I think a Fuji X-Pro is in my future, but should I jump now or wait for the inevitable Fuji X-Pro2?

    Carlos - you know that waiting for unannounced cameras is a recipe for frustration. The X-Pro1 is a great camera today that undoubtedly will be better with better ergonomics but when? And when you see the X-Pro2 there will be rumors of the X-Pro3 and so on and so on.

    Im with Graham on this one Greta camera, and it will still be a great camera when its ineveitable replacement comes out.. but when will that be?

    I have my Fuji with me in my bag on every job, If my hassy should fail me on a job that could not be rescheduled I have faith in the files this little camera produces and am sure it would get me through most jobs..... and it takes up so little space!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I think that when one does not have a Fuji XPro1 yet I would wait for the next model.

    I did not get into Fuji yet, mainly because they do not have sufficient RAW support in my favorite programs and even LR did not work properly so far. This is just a show stopper for me and I cannot understand the arrogance from Fuji, why no RAW support - and I NEVER EVER will start shooting JPEG just because of that and some nice film modes which can be applied much more sophisticated in any RAW converter .....

    So I am hoping that when the XP2 comes there will be also broader RAW support then and also the XP2 will have lost all the quirks of the XP1 and incorporate the latest AF PD / CD on sensor etc.

    If you did not buy into another compact mirrorless system by then, it will be good time to buy Fuji!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    No RAW support??? All the shots I posted above are from RAW inn lightroom.... the only time I have "problems" with raw is when I use it on landscapes with lots of fir trees... not being a landscape photographer this doesnt bother me...

    Saying no RAW support is painting with rather a broad brush..

    I shoot in RAW plus jpeg and rarely do I use the jpeg... I expect when the next lightroom version comes I will use it even less.. but it is a great visulisation tool when working in black and white...

    So you can tell me when RAW support in Aperture will come?

    I switched to AP some 6 months ago due to some other various important reasons for me. And I am not going back to LR just because its the only one major RAW converter for Fuji files.

    And I would love to shoot Fuji!!!!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Missing Aperture raw support for sure, but there are work arounds. Like many I shoot raw+jpg, mostly use jpg as they are so great, but if I need it especially I can process in the supplied raw converter, LR4 or Accuraw and then import the TIFFS into Aperture.

    Can't blame Fuji for the lack of Aperture support I am afraid. Best thing is to put in a request to Apple Aperture Team about it.

    Didn't mean to kick off a flame war. I had seen that a new version was imminent (at least according to Nippon magazine;

    I stopped using aperture years ago.... I went through several troublesome upgrades that crippled my workflow... as a working pro I dont need that.. also the lens profiles in Lightroom work... and now that Hasselblad has included the phocus module and hasselblad profiles I am even more dependent on Lightroom.
    I found aperture was going more and more like an iPhoto plus...

    Capture One and Lightroom, two of the biggest RAW workflow programs out there both support Fuji files.. (And they are both cross platform) yes npt perfect yet, but the new Lightroom shows promise... Fuji cant be blamed that apple seem to be more interested in iPhones and iPads than making pro software... (and I am a very loyal Apple user)

    Sad but true Nathan, Apple are leaving Aperture to wither on the vine it appears. I still love the Aperture workflow, it just makes much more sense to me than the rest.

    Re: Fun With The Fuji X100s

    There is a pretty long thread on the fujix forum about slow focusing on the X100s (about the same as the X100, from the folks that have both cameras). It seems that the cameras with firmware version 1.00 are focusing fast, but the ones with firmware 1.01 are focusing about the same as the X100. Has anyone here experienced this? I have one pre-ordered and I hope there are no focusing problems.

    Re: Fun With The Fuji X100s

    @toobacat. I don't have the x100s (only the x100) but the latest information that I've seen on x100s focus speed seems to be that you need to go to the "Power Management" menu, and turn the "High Performance" setting to ON.

    Users are reporting much faster AF with this setting. Hope this helps.

    Re: Fun With The Fuji X100s

    I received my X100s and also sold my X100 yesterday. I find the X100s to definitely focus faster than the X100. It is not as fast as a dslr, but it is definitely an improvement over its predecessor.

    Re: Fun With The Fuji X100s

    Got mine yesterday. First Fuji, but so far it is very impressive and is living up to the reviews. Shooting jpegs only now, as I'm waiting for Apple to support its RAW files in Aperture. It feels like a mini M9 in many ways, but it's more sophisticated.

    Re: Fun With The Fuji X100s

    Got my X100s in Singapore and the firmware is still version 1.00. I haven't experienced slow focusing. Even in low light and wide open it finds and locks focus lickety-split. Now that I've read the FujiX Forum discussion I'm going to hold on to this firmware version until Fujifilm addresses the issue. That seems to be one of their strengths, that the company listens to feedback and takes steps to resolve with firmware upgrades. Let's see what happens. I'm curious that David Hobby and Zack Arias and other bloggers claim it as their favorite camera but Kirk Tuck and Michael Wong and DPreview all say it suffers from soft focus. We'll see. The X100 had issues until Fuji got it right; maybe this will be the same?

    To be fair, Kirk is just referencing DPR.

    I sold my X100 ages ago but am borrowing a friend's today. I will be doing some real world comparisons with it and the S (and the X-Pro) when it arrives later this week.

    Not having used the X100 I can't really comment on any of the differences between the two ... what I can do is compare this camera to the M8 (which is one my favorite cameras )...but I won't
    Here are a few images from the past few days with the camera .

    Raw Files if anyone is interested ....
    Thanks for the RAW files. These feel exactly like X-Pro files. Excellent!

    I was getting worried with all this nonsense about soft focus. They must be shooting super close subjects.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Crap I just sold the Nex 7 and bought the Fuji. I really am a sick person. Okay time to open the box and figure this one out. I may need help, than again I may need a lot of different kinds of help too. Lol
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Re: Fun With The Fuji X100s

    Nothing too exciting here. Just getting a feel for the camera. So far, so good. A nice evolution of the X100 with so many needed improvements.

    Colors in JPEG are nearly the same as the X100 while the RAW files are a tad warmer and need to be adjusted down if you want to retain that cool blue green Fuji look. Like the X-Pro, I think I'll be shooting this in JPEG as it is just too easy to get great results, smaller files, quicker editing and still plenty of headroom to play with.



    With the WCL-X100 wide angle converter - nice and crispy



    Back to the 23mm





    ISO 1250 dim room, heavy backlit. Some grain added in post.
