    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi Mike..

    I am comparing these shots with those you posted earlier with the Elmarit-M 90mm.

    I prefer the 90mm ones, for their sharpness and lovely smooth tonality. Maybe the processing or the lux has this effect.


    Best.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I have been trying to be an impartial judge of which of my 3 cams I would take as I hurried out of the door.

    Repeatedly, it is the Fuji XT1. Seems photogs have been heavily involved in designing that cam. I have to add that this choice is made amongst three that I have. The M, I have used extensively, the Df is a very recent addition, and the XT! has clocked a lot of mileage in the short time it has been with me.

    Just love to pick it up and shoot something.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi Rayyan, glad to see you here with the XT-1

    You may be right, but neither my subject matter or my processing tends to be very consistent.....so for me I find it difficult to tell them apart, ignoring focal length

    Recently had a commercial shoot for a haulage company and I shot off a few frames of the driver at the end... I often do this, it costs me very little but is always appreciated and its damn good PR!

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thanks folks for the ' likes '..

    Ronald ( and others ) seeing that a lot of you guys are posting wonderful scenic images, with lots of foliage, I was wondering about the so called ' painterly and smudging ' effects produced by the x-trans sensor.

    My question ( actually two )... Has anyone been bothered or encountered such effects in the normal course of your shooting?.

    Next, I am not a wa shooter, but once in a while and for scenic and close in images it would come in handy. Which one lens would you recommend for me. The 10-24 Fuji zoom or the 14mm prime.

    p.s and another one...85/1.4 on 35mm ff or the Fuji 56/1.2, in terms of rendering.

    Thank you.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thanks Rayyan! I don't really see the "water-color" problem much. I do find that Photo Ninja is a bit better than ACR for bringing out detail in landscape shots from the Fuji RAW files, however I prefer ACR for skin tones in portraits.

    I haven't tried the 10-24 yet, but hear it's quite good.

    The 14 is amazing.

    I sew that effect some with the 18mm on the Xpro1, but it's pretty much gone with the X-T1.

    As for the lenses, I tried the 14mm, and it is a wonderful lens. I didn't like that the aperture ring moved too easily. The results, however, are very, very good. I have the Zeiss 12mm, and it is truly exceptional. However, despite that, since I purchased the 10-24, I have not used the Zeiss even once. That 10-24 pretty much resides on the camera. It's really good, and adds the element of versatility that the 12mm (and the 14mm, for that matter) lacks.

    Oh dear, looks like I'm going to get a bought of FAS and acquire that 10-24mm.

    It's beautiful, thank you for sharing! I am impressed with every single part of it. Could you please let us know details behind it? Like how you achieved such a dynamic range?

    Busy shooting a book project at the mo... The book is interviews with emergency services/first responders and is covering quite a range... I am at the air sea rescue base of RNoAF 330 Squadron on the south west coast of Norway at the moment... Here are a couple of shots from today.. can't post everything for obvious reasons ( this is going to be a book next autumn)

    X Pro1 14mm Doctor crew member of the Sea King in the background being interviewed by the author of the book while the ground crew gets it ready for a training flight... Looks like we will be going out on a flight while we are here too!

    ZoranC,

    thanks for your kind words. We all know, the Fujis are incredible capable cameras. That's the reason why I usually use RAW+Fine and edit if needed in Capture One 8

    BUT ... the image you see is just a small LR edit from the In-camera JPEG.

    You may visit this page of my other (family) website to see the difference between the two images.

    The only changes in LR are:

    - Exposure: +0.25
    - Contrast: +7
    - Shadows -7
    - Whites +37
    - Blacks -8

    and finally

    Blue Primary
    -Saturation +100

    to achieve a punchier overall look and blue skies.

    The settings have been:
    ISO 200, 10 mm, f/8, 1/640 sec.

    S.

    Thank you! And that was it?! Not even a DR200? Incredible! I could've almost sworn that "exposure blend" was used considering how shot transitions from having clean floor in shadow to outside whites but transition looked to me too natural looking for it to be exposure blend.
