    Here is one I took after work the other day. It's a large ice cube (sphere really) which I make for my evening Negroni.

    This is a curious way to place the label for a sculpture:

    Bought a few Calla lilies on Sunday to do still life photography. Here is one out of many shots from yesterday and today

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-Pro 2 and X-T 2

    There's a discussion raging on the Leica User Fora about why the next "ultimate" Leica SL lenses will have to be even bigger than the Otuses and Sigma Art lens series that dwarf a Sony 7-series full frame mirrorless camera. Without getting into the Leica definition of ultimaticity, the comparison of Fuji lenses that I shot as a counterexample, which I will include here, gives a good idea of the gains to be made by going to an all-autofocus and software-supplemented design strategy:

    S1020156 by scott kirkpatrick, on Flickr

    The new 35/2.0 shown on the camera in the center is about half the size and weight of the earlier 23/1.4 and 58/1.2 lenses. What, if anything, does it give up? Well, control over barrel distortion is passed to software. Here's what the required correction looks like in Capture One:

    Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 3.48.26 PM (2) by scott kirkpatrick, on Flickr

    That looks pretty serious. The corrected image (the actual scene that was mapped into the camera's 24 MPx) is stretched out by an amount which increases at least quadratically as you move from the center to the corners. The correction proceeds in two steps. First the actual image is mapped into a virtual array of pixels with the same pitch as the camera's pixels but extending out beyond the original frame, using Fuji's embedded information to compute the required shifts. Second, the central 24 Px of the true image are extracted from this virtual array. This is the corrected image; you can make it a little wider, or crop it further, to personal taste.

    You might think that the interpolated image, in which the outermost image points are shifted by 10-20 pixels from the positions at which they are captured, will be smoothed or smeared, but I don't see it. I suspect that is because the interpolation, if done optimally, preserves information at less than the Nyquist spatial frequency and suppresses artifacts beyond it. This is like having a weak AA filter, and then only applying it at the edges of the frame. There is some softening in the last 10-20 pixels at the corners of the frame, but that is present in both corrected and uncorrected images, and thus is due to the lens, not the software. If a picture requires edge-to-edge sharpness, plan to crop just a tiny bit.

    Re: Naginata tournament

    Naginata refers to the long sticks with cutting blades seen in Japanese movies of the sengoku-jidai. Formalized, this is a martial art taught, along with kendo, to all Japanese schoolchildren and exported to the west. The ancient armour which fighters put on contrasts strangely with the basketball and indoor soccer usually played in the gym where this tournament was held.

    Let's have the XT2 joins the party. This was my first outing with the new camera and new lens, the 56/1.2 APD. BTW I used pro Neg instead of the usual Provia Standard so that the colors won't hurt your eyes too much. All were taken with 56/1.2 APD except the first two images which were from the 18/2. Fuji, I'm coming back to you

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-Pro 2 and X-T 2

    Hello everyone. I'm new to the Fuji system and this forum as well. I've primarily shot Leica cameras the past 6 years or so and Canon before that. I've gotten rid of my Canon gear long ago as the system evolves way too slowly and I grew tired of the weight. Leica is my first love, but I'm adding Fuji for shooting paid portraits and weddings next year or for times I just don't want to use my Leica. I've had my Fuji XT-2 for close to 2 weeks now. My only lens so far is the 56mm f/1.2

    So far I enjoy the XT-2 quite a bit. The ability to customize the controls are great and remind me of the control I had over the Ricoh GR. The autofocus has been pretty good but seems to struggle a bit in the shade or lower light situations, although I admit its probably the lens more than anything else. The colors seems to be fantastic especially using film modes during the day. I find the white balance the best I've ever seen indoors with mixed lighting although there are times outside in the shade especially where it seems a bit green and reminds me of Nikon colors which I'm not super fond of. Lightroom support is absolutely terrible, but Iridient Developer is nice although converting to the RAW to TIFF and loses some of the advantages vs. using straight RAW in Lightroom. Ergonomics are mostly good although I wish the lever (thumb stick) was slightly larger like on the Canon 5D.

    I'll shut up now and share a few photos... The first two had some minor post processing and the rest from the Ren Fair are straight from camera JPG, Pro Neg High.

    Absolutely stunning results and well - also gorgeous models

    I am back to Fuji with the XT2 and I could not be more happy. I am still shooting Nikon (D810) and m43 (Olympus EM1) but I find myself using the XT2 almost exclusively now. So It could happen very likely that I would sell my m43 gear sooner than later.

    I am mainly photographing right now landscape, kids and safari, so one lens I got besides the kit zoom is the 100-400. And this is a beast of a lens, I have long time not seen such a well thought out design, excellent construction and superior IQ with top notch image stabilization.

    Looking forward to see more of your work

    Has anyone else seen this problem:

    click thru to the original and notice the noise, which looks like a lot of hot pixels. It has been happening on occasional frames, without warning, and then going away. Shooting a black frame does not show them, so they are not stuck hot pixels.

    WTF????

    Yep. I had noticed vertical lines of hot pixels, but I did not notice the closely spaced vertical lines in the blue sky, upper right, which seem to be a version of the same effect.

    Note this has happened about 10 times in my first 100-200 shots. If you check the other two shots I have posted, I hope you won't see them. If no one else has reported this, the camera will probably go back for a new unit.

    Scott,

    I have shot more than 2000 shots so far with my XT2 under all different lightning conditions and never had any of these issues. So it might be a good idea to send the camera back and have it replaced.

    Good luck!

    If it is not the camera, could it be the card? While I have never seen a pattern like this from a bad card, it is strange.

    I've got another theory for the spots (which do look like a heating effect since they don't show up in a dark frame). When I unboxed the X-T2, I put its battery on the charger and inserted a charged spare battery from my X-Pro2. Used that for several days. The previous battery is an NP-W126 and the new camera uses an identically specified NP-W126S. DP Review thinks the differences between the two batteries are in internal circuits which prevent overheating. Now I have the newer 126S battery installed, and so far today no noise spots. The card is another question. The user manual says Sandisk cards have been tested and found reliable, but doesn't say anything about Lexar. Is anyone else using Lexar 1000 or faster cards?

    Now using the X-T2 with its proper S battery. Still, two of the next 80 shots showed the noise sparkle problem. These had the characteristic that both were shot in a very dark lecture after viewing for a bit with high viewfinder signal amplification (which might cause heating).

    Scott,

    what a magnificent combo that is - I always enjoy when using it.

    Will put this combo through its paces in the coming week while on safari in Tanzania and Kenia - hoping for many great shots

    Re: X-T 2 handling low light and high DR just fine, thanks.

    I did lose three or four shots out of about 260 to sparkles, in each case just after switching on, but here's a quick selection from this evening's wedding in Bnei Brak, Israel:

    Yes, the men and women celebrate separately,

    XT2F0616 by scott kirkpatrick, on Flickr

    but the ladies can't resist looking in to see what all the noise is about. (They are also exuberant dancers, but I don't get to see that part)

    outside, a bit later:

    All with XT2, 16/1.4 at ISO 400 or above

    Scott, I assume you have the sensor cleaning function on. Try turning it off and see if that reduces your sparkles. If it does, then send your camera back. It could be the anti-static cleaning function. BTW, have you Googled this to see if other have reported the same problem?

    I had sensor cleaning set for both power OFF and ON. Tried it with both off just now and didn't see any sparkles in very low lighting. Maybe I will just set it for power OFF (that is the default). There's new firmware promised for November 8. If I send the camera in it is gone for at least a month or two, so I'll wait. Have reported this to Fuji but no response so far. I've kept my dealer informed, but they don't have a swap to offer (and I ditched the packaging several travel stops ago). And on three sites no one else is reporting this problem.

    Bleak! It looks like you are trapped. Where is Reid State Park?

    Well, the camera is about 2ft from the ground. Not so bleak you could not step above the high-water mark.

    Reid State Park is south of Bath, Maine on the coast, but in the other side of the river. Most people go to Popham Beach. It is very peaceful out of season. Sand beaches are rare in Maine and so it is packed in the summer. If you would like to see more of Reid, have a look at my blog (the link my signature). You can do a search for the park name or simply click on the category.

    Nice image.

    I am currently debating between getting the 35/2 or the 35/1.4. I do not really need shallow depth of focus and would like WR so I am leaning to the 35/2 as I very much like the 23/2. Once the 50/2 comes out that would be a nice 3 prime lens street setup. Comments?

    You cannot go wrong with any Fuji lenses. The trio will be light weight but extremely versatile. I just bought 23/2 but the faithful 35/1.4 will stay in my bag, forever. So my set will be 23/2, 35/1.4, 60/2.4 macro and will add Samyang 12/2 for my upcoming Bali trip. 16/1.4 is also very good but I am reluctant to take this relatively heavy lens.
