    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thank you Carl, yes it is a very nice camera, with just a few flaws wich I'm confident will be fixed with the next FW's, but resolving power, DR and hig ISO performances are really already very good and with some reasonable chance to be further improved once the support from Adobe and/or Capture One is available.

    Maybe it's the effect of the tele lens but it looks 3d

    nice

    Thanks Jolly. Yes, relatively close focus distance (for this lens) and equivalent 135mm focal length at f/5.6 produced narrow depth of field and depth illusion.

    Imaging Resources just posted their review of the x-pro1

    Fujifilm X-Pro1 Compact System Camera - Review

    I particularly like how they now show the printing chart at the bottom (Indicates ISO/Print Size/Quality).

    Just got mine last night and took a few snapshots on the way to work. Even though I have the X10 and X100, I can see that I have a lot to learn with this machine.

    I couldn't get the Flickr pic to embed, so here's a link. I posted full size images for pixel peeping purposes, if anyone is interested.

    Really nice first shots with your new XP1. Great detail in the decorative metal piece.

    Benroy - whatever processing you are doing these look really good. Any secrets?

    Robert,

    I'm slowly getting used to manual focusing and it is relatively easy with the 90. I'm sure it would be better if the focusing ring on the adapter was not so close to the lens mount. The 90 is probably a good candidate for M mount conversion.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Secrets (none) to processing Pro-X-1 images: I have been using Photoshop Elements for a long time...and for all cameras...quicker and easier than Photoshop. Pro-X-1 jpegs get the same treatment as all other images...I shoot the same stuff at the same time every day, so I manually set f/stop and shutter speed, and compensate by stopping up or down (usually around f/8-11 @ 250 with an ISO of 400. If needed when processing, I adjust exposure and color...Pro-X-1 jpegs have been running a bit yellow (I'm shooting in early AM). I sharpen a bit (some jpegs look like they have been sharpened in camera a bit much...anyone else notice this?
    Heaviest processing is cropping. I find frame lines in VF are unreliable, so I leave extra room around the edges to compensate. The two red baggage carts have been heavily cropped to avoid bright sun...sharpness seems to hold up OK.
    I've been very pleased with sharpness, color, and exposure with this camera. Framing should get better with practice. I'm have a great time playing with this camera.Hope this is of some value.

    Hi Roy

    Sharpness - I am not sure, though I have felt this myself recently. On my last outing I set sharpness and noise reduction both to -2, in Provia mode. I almost think this was 'better', as they sharpened up very well in LR. On the other hand I have sometimes felt that Velvia is a little soft, so I suspect there are different 'recipes' for different simulations.

    OVF framelines - well, for me this is the biggest disappointment with the camera, though the Leica lovers here may well offer some comfort! Ok, it's not *that* bad and it's better to have 'more' in your shot than 'less' than you were expecting but, coming from the X100, I do feel that the framelines in the OVF should be more accurate - I do get considerably more in the final picture than is within the frameline.

    Of course if you say this on another forum you get told to 'use the EVF for accurate framing'. Well with the X100 I only really had to do that for close-up shots, not distant landscapes. So I think that advice is mis-placed. I really, really like the OVFs in these cameras and they are one of the main selling points! I guess I am already learning to accommodate.

    Actually, Roy, looking at your comments again I see we are contradictory. I find I get more in and you are saying that you are allowing for more room. Realising that you are shooting at closer quarters than me, can I ask if you have enabled the 'Corrected AF frame' (I can't remember exactly what it is called) in the menu? You will then see 'two' focus boxes (one for far, one for near) and the frameline will shift as appropriately when you half press the shutter. For close up shots, I do actually think the EVF is the better option. Apologies if I have mis-construed or I am stating the obvious to you!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I appreciate the quick rejoinder, Lee. I do use the corrected AF frame option and see the two focus boxes, and use them accordingly. My comments about unreliable frame lines were directed mainly toward the OVF ...my tongue gets caught in my eye teeth at times, and I can't see what I am saying. )

    But my framing with macro/EVF is not all that great either...I think it's more me than the camera...I lack the patience to double check before releasing the shutter. I was shooting a hibiscus blossom close up this AM...focusing on the anthers/pistils...putting them in the center of the macro frame...but when releasing the shutter, I find the whole blossom is up in the top half of the frame, instead of in the center...so more cropping is required. Sooner or later I'll get the hang of it...but it's fun, isn't it?

    Thank you Lee. Just OOC jpegs with some minor exposure (my camera tends to overexpose) and clarity adjustments in LR4 before exporting the jpegs for web.

    Giving trees a shot, spurred on by the lovely images of Carl and Lee.
    All jpegs...35/1.4 / Pro-X-1. Really impressed with the rendering of fine detail in bark and leaves. I once had a 35/1.4 AIS Nikkor that was famous for this capability...this Fuji lens comes close.

    Lee,
    Lovely image, nice reflections. Weather looks similar to what we experienced today, although it was 80 degrees F this afternoon with a strong south wind. Tomorrow comes a cold front and back down to 50. Typical yo-yo spring weather here which is basically a struggle between winter and summer.

    I was very naughty today. X-Pro 1 is addictive. I seemed to find myself in the local camera shop.



    18mm.

    My other half will kill me, not because of the lens but because I didn't wipe the table first, LOL.
    Ok, it's just a snap but I am surprised how close in I can get with the lens.

    The tree at the end on my driveway. My first stop every morning is to take pics of this old, carpenter ant riddled tree to check exposure. The 35/1.4 is so good at rendering fine detail (bark , leaves) that a project is in mind...taking the tree from full length down to close up parts in a series of images. Here's the first set:

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Can I just say as a Leica owners I find the X Pro 1 very worrying indeed. Played with one a couple of weeks ago and it was very hard to walk out of the shop without it. The images here only reinforce the dilemma faced by aging Leica owners who could do with a little help in the focussing department. My resolve may well fail as and when the 35 f2 equivalent lens is released.

    Or how about the 60mm (90mm equivalent) ?

    All from the Ferry Plaza market this AM

    The straight out of the camera jpeg color is just wonderful.

    All with the 35 f1.4 some in macro mode. This camera/lens combo is a dream for me.

    Beautiful shot Lee and Terry. That 60mm is really tempting.

    I have sold off two Pentax DSLRs to justify the purchase of the extra two lenses (well, that was going to be my justification for the camera, but well, never mind) but after a day of having the other two, well I don't know but there is something to be said for the trinity ...

    Nice, the image, not the white stuff. We seem to be having similar weather patterns. It was 80 yesterday, today is in the 40's, and the nest two days we will see a nor'easter heading up the coast and dropping accumulating snow here.

    I love these. Beautiful images and one more reason to keep up with this forum and thread.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    It was a throw down in the camera store today. I went in to get a filter and the owner just smiled and took out his XP1 and handed it to me.

    He knows I am weakening......I took a few really nice snaps outside, but was saved by the bell. He had to close early today.

    I walked away feeling quite proud that I did NOT buy it, but come home and see more shots by Roy.....and Carl....and Lee.....and NOW Terry. Jeez!!

    Really.....all beautiful.....thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, Rich. Looks like another convert won. Appreciate the kind words...I expect that the flower/market pictures of Terry's might be the clincher.
