    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E2

    I ran across this interesting street art Sunday while I had the X-E2/27mm along. (RAW/Lightroom 5.3) I am experimenting with a Smugmug account, but not sure I like it yet. Anyone else here using Smugmug? Here is a link to the pics on Sumgmug:

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E2

    Walking through a store today I saw these old binoculars. I loved the play of light from the storefront entrance on the glass and the warm glow of the ambient light of the store's interior on the old leather and brass. I normally would have shot this with the 35mm but had the 18-55mm on the camera. This is exactly the kind of lighting situation that the WYSIWYG of the X-E2 comes in so handy. I was able to adjust the aperture to get just the exposure that I wanted for this shot. Loving this camera very much.

    Dale,

    Thank you!

    Not sure where you are in California but I'm just passing through on a trip back from Yosemite. I decided to take a detour to Sutter Butte and the northern Sacramento River area including lot's of back roads and authentic old agricultural / gold towns that haven't been Californicated yet etc.

    Fun with the Fuji XT-1

    So the Fuji XT-1 is really impressing me since its official release a few days ago. I am seriously considering upgrading my aging NEX 7 and for the price of the Fuji I can almost get an A7. Actually the A7 would be less if you factor in the Speedbooster I would also get for the Fuji. So I headed out today to a local camera shop to test out the A7.

    Its a nice camera for sure. Took some test pics with it and like what I saw.

    I then headed over to another local camera shop that sells Fuji's since I wanted to play around with the XE-2 to get an idea of what X cameras are capable of. I thought this might hold me over until the XT-1 comes out. Turns out it was perfect timing on my part. Standing in the shop is a Fuji Rep and lo and behold what is that small black camera on the counter....

    A freaking XT-1.

    In seconds it is in my hands and the Rep is excitedly telling me all about it. It feels very, very nice in the hand. Its smaller then I expected, right around my NEX 7 size. The EVF is nice and huge and the dual image composition/zoomed split image is a freaking wonder to behold. If you like using manual focus lenses then this is your camera.

    Not much else to say. It's simply a gem of a camera. Puts the DF to shame. It really, really reminds me of an old Contax 159mm, or possibly an old Minolta X-700, but with like a billion times better build quality. In my humble opinion thsi is the way camera evolution should have gone back in the day. I think a lot of Fuji shooters are going to have a nice upgrade/extra camera and I think this is going to bring a lot of new shooters to the Fuji fold. I am seriously considering this camera for my next shooter.

    I want to apologize for the somewhat crappy images here. They were both taken on the XF 23/1.4 and I was trying to get the setting to what I wanted and I was messing around with the Fuji focus peaking (very different from Sonys) so I wasnt paying a ton of critical attention to the shots.

    But I did crank up the ISO. The shot of my NEX 7 is at 1600 and the shot of the camera store employee is at 6400. Pretty clean. A damn site better then my NEX thats for sure.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy.

    Thanks for sharing. That looks crazy. Man if they only had an electronic shutter. I am still inclined it would be best to wait for the X-E3 (for me), as I like smaller.

    Doing ok. Mimi and I spent some time in Mexico working with a humanitarian group. Had an amazing experience, but brought home a bug I've (we've) been fighting for a month now. Looks like we're on the upswing now, and glad of it!

    Abstract, eh? I hope that along with it you're in fighting form.

    Our best to you and your family, my friend.

    Thanks Lee!

    I just started playing with Photo Ninja, which seems to bring out more detail in the X-Trans RAW files than Adobe ACR. I finish the processing in CS6. My two-week trial ends this weekend and I think I'm going to buy it now.

    Totally agree about Photo Ninja. There is a rumour that next version of ACR will have 'improved' X-trans support, specifically the various film simulations; not sure if the demosaicing will be any different though.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E2

    I have no idea when this gas station was built. It is made of brick and petrified wood. It has been abandoned for years. It is truly a work of art. Hard to believe no one has stepped in to save it. It is beginning to give way to weather and time.

    The roof is gone and the structure is totally open to the elements and anyone passing by. No graffiti at all. It is from another era. As I stood looking at this old building I couldn't help but wonder what it must have looked like in its prime.

    I wanted to shoot it at night with the stars in the sky and the interior lit by some of my LED devices. I used the 18mm f/2 for this shot. 13 seconds, f/4 at ISO 800. The exterior was lit with another hi-power LED with a amber filter over it.

    Fuji X-E2 - 18mm f/4 - 13 seconds - ISO 800

    Here's what the old building looks like during the day..

    Thought some of you might enjoy seeing the old building in daylight. We arrived just before sundown but due to cloud cover to the west there was not much of a golden hour. You can clearly see the petrified wood in this shot.

    I did some longish (30s) exposure testing this morning as this was one of the reasons I wanted this system (to complement my Imacon 528C back) as well as do the normal holiday/walk around duties. Quite pleased with the results

    The petrified wood brings back memories of visiting the Petrified Forest National Park a few decades ago (probably in the 1970s). It was really amazing to see all the different manifestations.

    Portrait in a hotel atrium

    This was taken today during a lunch break at a conference our company was putting on. The subject is Keith, the Executive VP of the company and the guy who shoots with me most of the time. He is Cajun and a Canon user... but don't hold that against him.... the Canon part that is.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I just read this thread from beginning to end. All 44 pages of it! It was definitely worth it though, as some of the photos are stunning and the odd one is astounding. Some of the skills shown are more than impressive.

    I pick up an XP1 tomorrow. It's an old camera now but the new lenses have made it a very viable proposition, and the great deals are even more tasty. Can't wait!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    While the XPro1 has been out for quite awhile, Fuji keeps updating the firmware in a process of "continuous improvement", just as they have with the original X100, even though that camera is a discontinued model. That is one reason I decided to get the XPro1 now, rather than wait for an XPro2 in the indefinite future. The rebates on the camera and lenses made the decision even easier!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I agree with Gary in that the XPro-1 has been around for a while but in most aspects the additional firmware updates for focus peak and AF improvements make it as current as the latest X-E2. The optical hybrid finder is a nice feature and the image quality is essentially identical to all the newer cameras.

    Very good to hear, and I was pleased to see focus peaking is one of the new features. I disliked the A7r but liked that particular feature of it a lot.

    Fuji seem to be very customer-orientated as not many brands listen to their target market like they appear to.

    I was at Samy's camera yesterday and was told by a Fuji rep that the X1 Pro would drop to $799 starting tomorrow along with a lot of lens rebates. Anyone else heard the same?

    Take a look here and follow the link to Fujirumors. If you click on the table images you'll see the rebates and date range, etc.

    Seems like the price at most places is $999 after the instant rebate.

    That's what I've seen as well, Gary. $799 is quite a bargain, if that comes to pass.

    Alan...I completely agree with you. I remember I had a similar comment once in the XE-1 forum. I like the idea of "Fun with Nikon images" or "Fun with MF images" better. It's very funny as 2 people who supported my comment were the same, Graham and Lloyd

    Fuji is even very obvious. How can people make different images with the same sensors XP1, XE1, XE2, XT1 etc.?

    I can't even make different images with either the Fuji XE1 or IQ260.

    I come to GetDPI mainly to look at wonderful images from many talented photographers here. It will save me lots of time if the images are in as few places as possible.

    Thanks,

    Re: Fun with the Fuji XPro1

    +1 again Pramote.

    Let's ask Bob or one of the other mods to consolidate the threads. It would be much cleaner.

    @ Alan, Pramote, Graham: It's done

    PS: Generally speaking we prefer this form of thread organization too, as it makes it easier for folks to compare and learn about older and newer models side-by-side. So as you see any new "fun with" threads arise, ask yourself if it could be better served merged with an existing, and then drop us a PM or report the post as Graham did.

    Thanks guys,
    Jack
