    Thanks for the correction, it's a great lens for sure.

    Omberg Nature Reserve

    X-Pro2, 18-55




    I have now rebuilt my web site because the old "engin" was working really bad with the latest version of OS 10.12.
    The rendering of Jpeg:s had become horrible...

    The new "engin" is so much better!!!

    The negative thing is that all old links on this site to my photos are now broken...

    But, It had to be done!

    Just a quick pic of a misty Summer night...
    Fuji XT2/35mm f2 WR.
    One thing about this camera I love, is the dials. It's so easy to configure this camera quickly. When I sold my Leica Q, I was hesitant because I loved the feel, but babied it too much because of the price. With my XT2, I still feel like a film shooter and even took it out in the rain. Heck, I even stuck it out a moving car's window in the rain. This camera rocks! Great lens selection too!

    I like my XPro 2. I wanted a digital camera with an optical viewfinder. The fact I can shoot square or 16:9 was a really nice bonus--two of my favorite film cameras were a Mamiya 6 and Horsemen SW612.

    The APSC format changes the dynamic of the images--I also shoot with a Pentax 645D and Sony RX1. I am still getting used to depth of field. Color and contrast are also different. I did make some 40" prints when I got the camera to make sure I could achieve a certain level of image quality. I was very pleased by the large prints, but they are different from my other cameras. I hate to sound so ambiguous, but obviously different format cameras are not going to be the same, yet to say one is superior to another is not right either.

    I have always had a soft spot for Fuji cameras--they are a crazy company that makes products for photographers. I like both the 23mm f/2 and 14mm f/2.8 Fuji lenses. The camera feels good to use, but I am still getting a feel for it. It always takes me a while to really understand how a camera sees. But I am really impressed by how flexible the camera is--from IR to night photography as well as long exposures with ND filters. Obviously, this camera was designed to be handheld, but it is also a joy on a tripod.

    A few niggles. I was the frame lines would not dim when using ND and IR filters--it thinks it is dark outside and reduces the brightness which makes them useless in bright daylight. Also, at night, the frame lines will washout the viewfinder, which is a bit of a pain. I also which the frame lines could be changed to compensate for the curvilinear distortion in the viewfinder.

    All in all, I am very satisfied with the camera. I just have to catch up to its potential...

    I do have similar feelings and observations. Meanwhile I shoot Fuji (XT2) and Olympus (EM1.2) exclusively and sold all my full frame stiff (mainly Nikon) and MF stuff (Mainly Hasselblad).

    I fully agree WRT the advantages and disadvantages of different sensor sizes and one has to get used to and practice. So switching between different formats and even more so camera models is a bit tricky, as it always takes some while to adjust. I still keep doing that as there are so many advantages to the different formats - in my case APSC and m43 - that it is worth for me to have both.

    I love my Fuji, especially colours and also the lenses, I currently own the 18-55 kit lens and the 100-400 for wildlife and both are great. I had the 1.4/23 and the 1.2/56 and loved both of them, unfortunately sold during another system swap a few years ago. But I most probably will get both of them again.

    The one thing I am missing from Fuji is IBIS and I am not sure if they can add this into some of their X system cameras. But if that happens I would be hard pressed to go Fuji X system exclusively and simply get rid of all my m43 gear.

    And yes, I am far behind in using these cameras to their real potential ...

    X-Pro2, 18-55



    Inspired by Will:s IR-photos with his X-Pro2 I bought an adjustable IR-cut of filter 530-750nM.

    But I think I have been skunked..

    The picture become pathologically red, but there is no enhancement of the foliage for a tree in the sun.
    The tonal range is more or less the same as for an normal B/W photo.

    So I am working with too short wavelengths, have to buy a cut-off filter at 800nM or longer wavelengths.
    (low-pass filter for frequency or high-pass filter for wavelength)

    Back to the drawing board, ehh I mean ebay..

    Ray, the IR filter I am using on my XPro2 is an 820nm cut-on filter. Since you are fighting a built-in IR cut filter in the camera, deep red filters tend to result in more exposure toward the red than the NIR resulting in fairly normal images.

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

    I previously had a Canon G10 converted for IR photo.
    It had a range of 0.72-2.5 micrometer according to the company that did the converting of the G10.
    But I did a test and was able to photograph IR from an old hob att 500C. I verified the temperature with my Flir P640s IR camera.
    The meant that the G10 could detect IR all the way down to the border of the medium and long wave band!

    I read somewhere that the X-Pro2 should have a weak IR-filter, so I was hoping that the filter I was trying would balance visual and IR to a "healthy" mix.
    But it look's like you should not believe everything you read on internet...

    So I will try a filter with the same cut of wavelength as you use!

    NIR is weak to begin with that I think the IR cut filter on the camera just removes too much IR. I was out shooting NIR (see image above) on a sunny day this weekend and I was getting 60 sec, f/8, at 100 ISO for exposures. For a comparison, with a 7-stop ND filter for visible light, I was getting 1.5 sec, f/11, at 100 ISO.

    This is with an adapted lens: Minolta M-Rokkor 90mm, f/4. It is a surprisingly small, but heavy, lens. It seems sharp on the X Pro2.

    2017 eclipse image. A tree's canopy creates tiny pinhole that project the sun's image. Usually, the sun has an unobscured disk and we see round patches of light. But during a partial eclipse, the crescent of the obscured sun is projected.



    It certainly makes the sidewalks pretty.

    Here is a shot I'll post just to show the high ISO performance of the X-Pro2. I needed sufficient DoF to capture the scene (f/5.6) and sufficiently fast to avoid blur (1/500 sec). Taken using the XF 16mm lens that combination needed ISO 12,800. I've slightly processed the image but I haven't applied any NR. I don't find the grain intrusive to the result but I'd be interested to hear what others think?

    Exploring my new neighborhood. What is kind of fun is while these images were taken miles apart on the same day, the cloud almost line up across the frames.

    The noise is very much like overdeveloped TriX printed on high contrast paper. There is no right or wrong answer here. It is simply whether this is effective or not effective for what you are trying to elicit in the viewer--and it doesn't matter if the viewer likes noise or not.

    Mark, what are you using to process your images? I use Irident Developer. What I have found is, with the default settings, ID has very aggressive sharpening. This becomes more noticeable at higher ISOs. You may want to see what sharpening is being applied and play with the settings. It does not eliminate the noise, but it does help control whether the noise looks like film grain or sand, if you know what I mean (the pavement behind the man in the foreground looks like sand, other brighter areas look more like grain).

    Hi Will,

    Thanks for that. Just wanted to get a bit of feedback really, I like the result, I think a lot of photographers get too hung up on trying to eradicate all noise from images. For me, especially with B&W, some fine grain can enhance the image rather than detract from it.

    You're right about the aggressive sharpening SOOC. I haven't done much with this shot but recently I've started using Silkypix to reduce or remove the inbuilt sharpening and contrast which the camera applies. This gives me a better starting point to begin with LR and/ or PS and usually my last step is to consider selective sharpening. What I save to print is what I want to get right, I host images on Flickr to post on here, Flickr adds some sharpening which can overdo the result when viewed on a forum. I probably ought to take that into account when posting images.

    I haven't tried Irident but I'm always willing to look at new options so I'll have a look when I get the chance, thanks.

I don't find the grain intrusive to the result but I'd be interested to hear what others think?
    What noise?

    I still have about 150 Shanghai iso100, 120 B/W format rolls in my freezer.
    Developed in R09, stand or short, that will give ye noise!
    B/W and noise goes hand in hand from my point of wiev.

    If you have not raised the question, I would not have reflected about any noise in your picture.
    Just to emphasise what Will said.

    Thanks Ray, I think it's mostly those who started in digital and never used film who are overly concerned with noise. Seems there are plenty of old school photographers on here which is no bad thing at all

    friends,

    I am hungry, she said.
    Good, pick up a couple of cheese sandwiches for me too.

    Things went downhill after that.

    You want me to get you food?..her
    Yes, please..me

    You know the weather outside? Do you have any idea what you are saying?..obviously, had to be her.
    Yes. I told you that it wasn't an intelligent decision to come here in winter...me.

    What did you say? What did you just say!!? ..shouting. I stopped shouting after my CABG.

    Rayyan, you have just about enough intelligence to open your mouth when you want to eat, but obviously no more. Not only unintelligent, indecisive, and stupid, but rude!!..wow!

    I sat up in our bed. Looked at her, and smiled. She hates that. I thought of George Carlin! And said sheepishly..hon, never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. Wished I had my friends here....

    The 23mm lens is maybe not your first choice for bird photography, but if it works...

    It certainly does What's the story with those Cranes, Will? Are they wild birds living there or does someone own them?

    Someone feeds them. They are wild, so they can be a little less than friendly if threatened.

    More of the same. This time a long exposure with multiple lightning strikes and a red tail light from a Kia Soul.

    I am just hanging out waiting for Hurricane Irma to get here. It should arrive in the next hour or sooner.



    See you on the other side.

    My little tree survived. Unfortunately, most of its leaves did not...



    The other thing that survived was the Porta Potti strapped to a lamp post--you can see it in the top right corner of the photograph.
