    My Fuji X-T1 page is online at Boxed Light

    I have just added a page to my website at Boxed Light with plenty of sample photos and my thoughts on the camera (for those who might care).

    You can view the page directly here.

    Or just visit www.boxedlight.com and click on the X-T1 link.

    I am very impressed with the camera.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I just read Jim's review and of course swooned over the excellent imagery. A very balanced and well written review I thought. I wasn't aware of the potential light leak and I'll have to check this out with daylight long exposure. (actually gaffer tape fix is what I'll do and avoid the storm in a teacup). I kept an X-E2 with RRS L bracket for such uses plus I'm not yet sure how we'll be able to use an L bracket with the side door dimensions and position. Looking forward to my battery grip to arrive to see if that'll make things easier.

    Jim I'm not quite sure what you do to get your 'look' but I suspect that it's trusting the EVF in manual mode. However you're achieving it I like it a lot and can spot a 'Radcliffe' here in a moment.

    Btw, your Cypress Tree at Lake Martin is superb.

    Thanks, Graham. I actually hate writing reviews but I feel I have to because there is so much misinformation out there by people who do not own the camera. So many negatives by such a vocal few over nit-pic things.. just my way of trying to combat that kind of stuff.

    When Fuji gave us the capability to see exactly how our settings would make the photo appear.. that was a game changer. When you look through the EVF or look at the LCD and make minor changes to shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc. and you see what you will get, it just makes composition and exposure so much better.

    I have never used a histogram (or liked them) because much of my work is not aimed at "perfect exposure" but rather creating a mood or artistic look. The histogram can't really help me there.. but with a WYSIWYG EVF or LCD the creative doors are now wide open. I know some will argue otherwise but for me.. it is what I needed and wanted for years.

    I love my Pentax K5 IIs but it uses a regular optical, through the lens system and the Pentax Live View really is poor in my opinion. So for now, Fuji is the camera I go to. It's nuts. I have the XP1, XE2 and now the XT1. Guess I'll just hang on to all of them. Maybe I'll become like the Leica collectors and buy them all I guess I need to pickup the X100s. Tried selling the XP1 but got no takers. It's boxed up in the original packaging now for over three months. I guess it will be my backup for my backup X-E2.

    All the best..

    Great review Jim! As always very helpful. I am in a similar situation currently shooting a XE2 and lusting for the XT1. Still not sure if I shall buy it.

    Thanks anyway

    Peter, the X-E2 is an outstanding camera. I plan on keeping mine due to its compact size and if I pick up the 27mm it will be a super easy carry in a large jacket pocket for those times you don't want to carry that bag thingy with you.

    The X-T1 in no way diminishes the outstanding capability of the X-E2.

    Well, thanks.. but those shots of yours are the kind of shots I wish I could produce.. that first shot in particular just grabbed me.. I literally said: WOW when I viewed it.

    Clarity, detail, atmosphere, composition... it's all there. You should be very proud of that series.

    ReeRay,

    I have to agree with Jim. Your work is excellent. I looked at your Flicker site and there seems to be a richness to all the photos regardless of the camera used. If I might ask, do you do an special processing on all your files to achieve the deep color?

    Jim

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Spent Sunday refilling my creative batteries for the coming portrait season... Did a workshop together with four other pros with Damien Lovegrove. Great to get away from the studio and spend the day exchanging ideas, learning new tricks and getting some inspiration.. I had my hassy with me, but I used my Fuji about 90% of the time...
    I borrowed Damiens 56 1.2 for this shot.. Shot on my X-Pro1

    Hi Jim

    I use Capture One as my RAW processor and boost the black point, contrast and clarity to taste, usually leaning towards "heavy". Then into the Niks Suite of plugins, mainly Analog Efex Pro. Using the "Basic adjustment" I pull out detail and adjust contrast and saturation. Then into Color Efex Pro where most of my work is done. There are so many filters there but my favorites are Midnight and Pro Contrast. The Midnight filter is highly adjustable and this is where the deep colours come from.

    Hope this helps a little.
