    Fuji Xpro 2, 23mm f/2, and B+W 093 IR filter (830nm cut on).



    And in real life...

    So, our power came back on today after three days of it being out from a snow storm. Clearing the driveway was tough, but it makes our forest look pretty.

    What are the aspect ratio choices besides 3:2 for the XP2/XT2?

    Greeting the sun in Ocean City, Maryland.



    Yup, the X Pro2 has 1:1 and 16:9 aspect ratios. That is what drew me to it. It is like my Mamiya 6 and Horseman SW612 all rolled into one. Both the OVF and EVF shows the selected ratio.

    This is with the 23mm, ƒ/2.

    From the drive across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. And easy thing to find if you are heading south, not so much in the other direction.

    It could have been worse.
    This was taken on 9th of June last year.
    So it is only sand blowing around.

    But I will be in this area next week.
    Then it might be a different story.

    This area is also called "Cold Hawaii" due to all the surfers.
    Many times I have felt that "Cold" is an apt description of this spot

    Yes, I will document my trip to this area next week, Peter!
    But until then I will show some more of older pictures from this area, between Agger and Hanstholm in western Denmark
    In between those two small towns are the nature reserve Thy situated, my absolute favorite spot in Denmark!

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

    Now that Iridient X-Transformer is available also for Windows, I've been experimenting and I've got to say that subjectively it seems to provide a crisper and perhaps more "pleasing" image than C1P. But I have two questions:

    1. Iridient seems to crop a little of the image. Has anyone noticed this?
    2. When pixel viewing the Iridient shows substantial "noise" or pixellation. Could this just be due to the sharpening and noise controls?

    It has to be said that Iridient for Windows is just in a Beta version but I'd welcome any comments.

    Many thanks

    Try lower sharpening values within Iridient X-Transformer and also make sure that when importing into LR or C1 you switch sharpening off, otherwise you are doubling up on it.

    Nice picture BTW.

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

    I use Iridient Developer on a Mac. Iridient Transformer looks to be applying the lens profile automatically, which might explain the cropping. Have you compared an in-camera jpeg to the RAW cropping--the jpeg should have the lens profile applied.

    The other thing with Iridient is the the sharpening can be very aggressive depending on the subject matter. Sometimes it is just right, but I have found enough cases where I need to dial back the default settings. It looks like you are seeing the sharpening in your noise.

    Many thanks Will and Lee

    I'd forgotten that Iridient applies the lens profile so what you say makes total sense as concerns the apparent "cropping"

    If I am to understand it the developer (Brian Griffith) may be adding some more sharpening options especially aimed at XP2 and XT2 sensors. This might imply that the default is perhaps too aggressive and not optimised for the 24mp sensor.

    I'll try to reduce the sharpening although it must be said that the sharpening in the noise is only apparent at higher magnifications. At a smaller canvas size this is not noticeable. What is noticeable is the apparent detail and better separations between light and shadow.

    I'm a C1 user and it may be that Iridient is more specifically aimed at LR users. Nonetheless, even for C1 I think this is software which is worth persevering with. At £30 or so it is a steal in my opinion.

    Thanks again

    Now did a comparison between the Iridient DNG round tripped via C1P and then LR. Now I'd be the first to admit that I'm not great with Lightroom but the difference is nonetheless remarkable.

    10 seconds with LR.

    I hate Adobe as much as the next man, and would love it if C1 supported my camera, but at least give LR a chance..

    Hi Matt

    You are right of course and I know I'm pretty inept with LR and it was certainly not the intention of my post to criticise it. It is the industry standard and used by many; and extremely effectively. Nonetheless C1 seems to work better or maybe more intuitively for me and using the RAW capabilities of Iridient on X-Trans files seems to be and interesting and possibly a worthwhile additional extra step.

    I am under the impression that Iridient has been developed more specifically with LR in mind and I wanted to show that it seems also to work with C1 and in my opinion gives better results. Your 10 seconds with LR, while improving my original LR rendition still shows quite a colour difference especially in the shadows. It lacks in my view the tonality and richness of the C1 version.

    Thanks for your input. Much appreciated!

    I much prefer the color and workflow of C1. If it were a choice, I'd go C1 every time. I only use LR because of Phase One's peculiar position on camera support, i.e., not mine. I just wanted the comparison to be based on decent efforts with both converters and not on, essentially, a typo.

    No criticism of your workflow or choices is intended. As I said, I agree with you completely! Of course, I was working from your LR jpeg, and I don't know what LR could do with the RAW, but I was just seeing what could be done.

    Best,

    Matt

    First full day here in Denmark,
    Drove north up towards Hanstholm, where I was at first welcomed with horizontal snow and then a short fanfare with hail.
    But all cleared up for the sunset which gave a reflection of the clear blue sky in hail / snow

    And let's blame TClair for my choice of a birch tree in the snow

    It took me a while, but then I finally remember where I have seen this kind of "manic kitty" before:

    Fat Freddy's Cat!

    You maybe got a great great grandchild?

    That's quite possible. Fat Freddy's Cat was smarter than all the Furry Freak Brothers. Tai followed that legacy by her arrival -- she fell asleep in the warm engine compartment of a car in Rehovot and decided to stay in Jerusalem once the car's owner reached her workplace. That was at the age of a month or so. Now grown, she wakes me up at 6 am quite reliably for her breakfast and to start the day.

    Hmm. How many stops below a daylight exposure did you need for this? If the XP2-XT2 chip especially sensitive in the IR?

    Scott, the specs for that exposure: 30 sec., f/8, ISO 400, +2.0 EV. With IR, it is good to overexpose from the meter to get more tonal information, at least in the conditions I have been shooting in. The images out of the camera are flat. This was mid day. (I guess if you did not want the extra exposure, you could shoot handheld at 1/30s, f/2.0, and ISO 6,400.) The B+W IR is strong, so a filter that lets in wavelengths under 830nm will lower the exposure times too. I don't think it is particularly sensitive to IR--my Pentax 645D, Sony RX-1, and Olympus EP-1 had similar exposures, but the images are cleaner in the X Pro2.

    I white balance in the RAW converter to get the two tones--just click on a tree or object with the WB sample dropper. In this image, I used the hue slider to get the sky blue--it is red out of the RAW converter. If you look at the image at the top of the tread, you can see a reddish patch on the left in the background, that is the sky color right after WB.

    We have had so much freezing rain, our snow pack has become a block of ice. I needed crampons to walk around the garden this weekend. These are our blackberry canes. Very different from the summer:

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

    Being new to Fuji and the XT2, I purchased Rico's XT2 book. On page 83 he mentions something interesting (among many other comments/recommendations in the book) in order to get the live view and live histogram jpegs looking like RAW files. Mainly setting H/L tone to -2 and shadow tone to -2 also. I addition he recommends setting film simulation to Pro Neg Std which results in jpegs with less contrast.

    Anyone else regularly tried this approach? I would like to hear your comments. TIA.
