    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    As a professionell photographer I certainly didnt get into the X-system for gimmicky camera functions, I like the back to basics approach and not least the optics and the quailty of file the cameras produce. Combine this with the form factor and weight makes this system the perfect compliment to my Hasselblad MFD system and just perfect for personal work and family stuff where before I would be lugging a big Canon around.. That said, with the X-T1 there are a few fun filters and my first thought was well thats one function I will never use... well I just proved myself wrong I can see this being useful for weddings, bouquet pics amongst other things... and even better, straight out of camera no layers in photoshop... Here I used the double exposure function and using an old technique from film days I took one pic in focus and then the second exposure is the same scene but with focus set to infinity and the camera moved in real close and arranged to get some glorious bokeh... as a bonus you get this soft focus glow almost halation effect...

    X-T1 + 35mm

    Here the same technique, but didnt move the camera, just one shot in focus and the next out.. shot with canon FD 100mm f2 wide open via an adapter.. also shot last night under tungsten lighting whereas the other was shot just now with diffuse window light...

    Got the flu, piddling down with rain outside.. what else to but play some... er, I mean experiment with potentially financially rewarding techniques...

    Here I used a blurred shot of the tulips from above and with a goodly portion of positive exposure comp on shot two I got it to almost look like a low sun contra jour shot... (trust me it anything but sunny here right now)

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Having recently moved from the Oly E-5 to the Fuji, this is one of the images that confirms to me it was the right choice; ISO 400, lots of PP in terms of shadow adjustment, and the file holds up really well.

    XT-1 and kit lens:

    Apologies, Mike, if you mentioned this before, but what does your workflow & pp look like for this file? Not looking for a recipe, slider by slider detail. Just the bigger flow and apps you use. TIA.

    Hi Mike, no need to apologise. I only use LR, and usually I spend less than a minute per image thanks to presets, but I had a particular vision for this one which took a little longer...

    Lots of highlight recovery and lightening of shadows to start with, then increase in clarity and sharpening, a tweak of positive vibrance and then i backed off the saturation quite a bit. Finally I warmed the image a little via the temperature slider.

    Hope that helps.

    Excellent image! And I can see absolutely NO ISSUES with all the greens - as some always seem to see with Fuji greens - I never had any issues as well!

    Also interesting WRT your move! I am using the XE2 in parallel with the EM1 since almost 6 months now and I mostly use (like to use) the XE2 because of IQ. Although AF is likely to be better from the EM1 but there is not a huge difference, but the real difference for me is IQ paired this the lenses.

    So this tells me something! Yesterday I ordered the XT1 and I am thinking of getting rid of my Oly equipment. While the Oly is pretty good, the Fuji's are still better. And supporting more my needs as a photographer! So I might be at the point for moving completely to Fuji Also part of the much more appealing lens selections meanwhile available for Fuji and the lenses which should arrive in the near future!

    Hi Peter. Will be interesting to see how you think the XT1 compares with your Oly. I can tell you the Fuji is not in the same league as the Oly when it comes to focus speed, but that was never really a priority for me; I do like to shoot on the street but tend to prefocus anyway....
    I haven't seen any green watercolours or smearing, and I have given it a few torture tests. A couple more below.
    What I have noticed is that you can really push and pull the files around if you wish, and they don't fall apart like the Oly files, which I was trying to illustrate above.
    Love your website, by the way....excellent stuff!
    Mike

    Mike,

    many thanks!

    I really love the EM1 and I am sure AF is better (much better) than the XT1 AF - BUT for real fast AF and AF tracking none of these cameras can do for me and all are topped by my D800E anyway.

    But AF from the XT1 is already very much improved compared to earlier models and I want to start building the system. I guess with the fast 2.8 zooms which should come later this year AF will get much better already with the XT1. And there will be an X Pro 2 finally either latter this year or next year, which IMHO will then close the gap to the D800E (or at least almost, which should do it for me. Consider the I want to use this system in the end also as my go to system for wildlife photography where I expect reasonable accurate and fast tracking.

    IQ wise there is hardly any other APSC camera (system) topping the Fuji X and even compared to some FF alternatives the Fuji's do a great job WT IQ.

    Will definitely post about my experiences wit the XT1 as soon as I have used it enough!

    Nathan, I'm enjoying your farmer series very much. On RFF recently there was a link to Peter Miller's site. He has several projects on Vermont farm life that I thought you might enjoy:

    Started the day with a corporate shoot... ended the day on the island of Averøy.. Sveggesund is a real pearl... as is the 10-24

    Looking really good. How does the camera balance with this relatively heavy lens.

    The biggest challenge with the 10-24 is that it wants to rest on the lens hood when put down anywhere. Hardly a big deal but expect to scratch up the base of the hood and get a spare at some point.


    Its one of my favorite lenses on the Fuji X system although its brother the 14mm gives it a run for the money.
    Ylem ...

    One word: Grip!

    I have the grip on all the time. Its still a small camera but for me, who lived with a 1 series canon in my hand the last 10 years the grip is a must. The lens is my no means heavy, again compared to my hassy and canon L glass its a lightweight Its long, but with one hand under the lens and one hand on the camera that is not a problem, I shot it yesterday on a whole bunch of interior shots with one hand... the other hand holding a flash on a off camera cord... compared to my canon I felt like it was filled with helium... for the kind of assignment I had yesterday the Canon is gone.

    You should see my trusty 16-35 canon hood.. not to mention my ten year old 24-70 hood Hoods are there to do a job and I dont really worry about scratching them to be honest


    Great lens, holds it own and in some respects easily outperforms my 16-35 f2.8L
