    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thanks everyone. I've bonded with this camera and while I'm still learning it I just love using it.

    So, what I liked about the M8 was the form factor, size, simple direct controls, aperture on the lens. What I didn't like was no close focus, my ability to nail focus at moderate (like one or two meters) distances.

    Why the Fuji "'speaks" to me. I feel like I have the best of all worlds:
    Optical viewfinder experience
    EVF for tricky situations, macro, longer lens and finally
    LCD live view shooting for odd angles where looking through the viewfinder is impossible or not practical.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Terry, your shots are the first ones I see from this camera showing what it can do the M9 clearly can't and what I consider more relevant than the high iso thing most are raving about. Looking very impressive, indeed and dangerous to my bank account. If performance with m-lenses will be good and focus peaking introduced, the X1 Pro could be a serious contender to the M9, crop factor or not.

    That is a seriously good photograph but it is also entirely reminiscent of the Leica Elmarit M 90/2.8. One of the few lenses that keeps me loyal to Leica, btw.

    Fuji really deserve some credit for that sort of sharpness and contrast control.

    Thanks Louis. Well, all down to the lens really! As well as the square crop, I did move the blacks slider to the left and the whites to the right but that was the only PP.

    Sharpening was left on the camera default. The picture can actually take a little extra sharpening in LR, though.

    It keeps raining so no outings today (maybe later!) but the iris is looking lovely indoors:



    60mm, Provia, NR -2, ISO 400, f/8, manual focus, tripod, 2 sec timer. SOOC JPEG apart from a slight crop.

    Carl,

    I don't normally 'do' macro but this lens is lovely. I don't want to encourage anybody ... I sort of 'forgot' that it is a macro lens so I had another go. This time I used AF-S and f/11. Slight crop.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Ok, one more, sorry! BTW I just learned that when in manual focus mode, you can select the area that is used when pressing the magnify button and is also used by the AEL/AFL button to do the initial AF. You do this by pressing AF button on the left, moving the area to the desired position and then pressing AF again.



    I don't think I have had so much fun with a camera for a while ...

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I've been reading up on some of the forums and I'm seeing two different approaches to faster low light AF performance. Both different. Anyone tried.....

    1)AFC
    2)AFS but don't stop at half press and wait for focus. Just do a complete full press.

    .....thoughts?

    When I used a camera back in late Feb, I found I preferred AFC mode.

    I think I could be happy with just the 35/1.4...wonderful photos in this thread!

    Portraits? You have been viewing some very fine botanical portraits, courtesy to Terry and Lee.

    Sunday morning walk around after a stormy night...jpegs...35/1.4 / Pro-X1, and without apology, includes some botanical portraits.

    You are right. I need to get that 60mm 'portrait/macro' lens pointing at my beloved cat! You have been warned, LOL!

    Terry,
    Thanks for posting these beautiful picture. What ISO did you use and is it possible post a 100 percent crop from one of those images. How different is using manual lenses on X1 Pro than Nex7.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi Manouch -

    I don't have the images on the computer I'm currently working on, but can make some additional crops later. I have not used any manual lenses on the Fuji. I don't have any adapters. The only lenses I have to use are Contax G 35 and 45 and the Fuji 35 is so good there was no real reason for me to want to adapt.

    The ISOs were different. All were at ISO 200 except:

    Purple orchid - 640
    chocolate - 400
    cheese - 1600

    This first shot is a crop from the second.

    Terry,

    I especially like the cheese and the chocolate shots - so incredibly clear!

    Really enjoy your images!

    Mine arrived this morning....

    The UPS guy arrived with a nice box from B&H this morning. First thing I did was charge both batteries.. after the first was charged I put it in the camera and mounted the 35mm (also bought the 18mm).. and then took the usual "shoot anything in sight" test shots.

    The main thing I was testing for was focus and the XP1 was dead on in every shot I took, even those cluttered shots of items on my desk.

    First impression is a very loud WOW! I think I have finally found the camera I wanted when I sold my M8. Hope to have pictures (not test shots) shortly both here and on my website.

    I hate to use the phrase "Love at first sight.".. but that is what I am feeling at the moment. I will install the new firmware tonight and begin to seriously use the XP1. I'm sure my K5 will be jealous but it will not be forgotten as there are things it can do (with the DA* wide & tele zooms) that the Fuji is not capable of at this time.

    The only thing I dread is the look I will get from my wife when I bring the camera home.. she'll get over it.. I hope.

    I'm a happy man today.. Thanks Fuji!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Finally took the plunge and bought one last weekend. Finally a worthy replacement for my trusty Panasonic L1.
    Fuji thankfully released the first firmware update today and addressed the annoying lens chatter sound today (sounded like the smoke monster from Lost, sort of).
    My only minor complaints so far:
    - the LED which indicates sd card access is very disturbing (especially under dark conditions) and placed too close to the viewfinder
    - focus could be faster but is very accurate though
    - SD card access is too fiddly (a dedicated sd card compartment and dual card suppprt would be cool for the Pro 2)
    - battery life could be better
    - no Lightroom support.

    Despite of those minor complaints the camera is a real pleasure to use and the image quality is right on the spot.

    Diglloyd as he terminates his X-Pro1 review:

    "It [X-Pro1] has some fine qualities, but it is simply too frustrating to work with its images, not one of which has anything approaching the sharpness of what should be there with a 16MP camera."

    Maybe he should take a look at this thread...

    I see a lot of convincing work with the X-Pro1 on this forum and a lot of chatter on other fora and blogs about its shortcomings. Interesting .

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Very nice flower pictures here now.
    Have try the 60mm macro with the aperture at 2.4 after FW update.
    Quit fast to focus on the object for a macro lens.
    So one flower at the green in my garden.



    and a small fly on the flower

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Checking out the C/Y Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 Distagon on the XP1 with Kipon adapter. Much better performance compared to CV M and Contax G 28s, with no corner/edge smearing or magenta/cyan vignetting. Only negative is relatively large size with adapter mounted.

    what about white balance with jpegs?

    lots of great images here, really nice color, detail...i have a question about jpeg white balance and making corrections...

    i mean many are saying the jpeg's are so good you might not bother with raw, they do look great...i wonder, if you shoot 'daylight' setting by accident in a cafe or at home under whatever kinda artificial lighting, how good is it re-adjusting color with the jpeg?...i mean is it easy to re-adjust the color?...anyone have any examples of say outdoor shots accidentally shot using fluorescent or tungsten and what they look like when you warm 'em up?...

    I ask 'cause i just about always shoot raw with my dslr, leave the setting at pre or whatever, and can always pretty easily adjust color to suit the environment...with my old canon point 'n' shoot that only does jpeg, color shifts can often look like crap...

    thanks...

    I always shoot Raw + Jpeg 9 (fine) and set the camera up to auto white balance. It does a great job 99% of the time with the Jpeg, but those very odd times when the white balance is really difficult (church interiors with mixtures of daylight, fluorescent and tungsten lights for example), I always have the RAW to fall back on.

    It is often the case that it is also that image also needs some substantial exposure correction too, when once again the Raw file is extremely useful!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi Folks,

    Just spent Tuesday afternoon shooting in beautiful and hectic NYC. I took a workshop class from Markus Hartel, one of my favorite street photographer's, as I am usually very shy about getting close to those I am shooting. Markus had great tips and by the end of the 3 hour workshop, I was feeling much more confident.

    All were taken with the 18mm lens using the Neg Pro H film simulation, given there is no raw conveyer other than Silkypix, with color and sharpness at +1.

    The first was taken serendipitously as I just looked up and I said to myself 'snap."

    In the second photo, I noticed and loved the image I saw through the glass and then this gent walked right next to it. I moved to get closer to him something I would normally be averse to do and took the image.

    With the third photo, I just moved very close to her as I loved her look and as I was taking the photo she noticed me and gave me the look you see.

    The final photo is of a woman shooting video on 47th Street with an iPad. I loved the expression on her face so... there you have it.

    Hope I've given some good samples of how the x pro 1 can be used as a street photography tool.

    Any feedback & critique is always appreciated.

    Anyone tried ZM 18, 25, 35 lenses on the XP1? - Would be interested in how they did. Thanks!
