Behind the scenes of Fujifilm's factory in Sendai, Japan

Behind the scenes of Fujifilm's factory in Sendai, Japan | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

After the official launch of the X-Pro2 recently in Tokyo, Fujifilm invited a select group of press to visit its Taiwa assembly plant near Sendai to see the camera being put together. As well as the X-Pro2, we were also able to see the assembly lines for the X-T1, X100T, and several lenses. Fujifilm has been making optics since the 1940s, and although the construction workers of that time would not recognize much of the technology used in lens construction today, a lot of the assembly is still done fairly traditionally, by hand. 

The first step when visiting any assembly plant, is to sterilize yourself. No, not like that, but by donning head-to-foot protective clothing and scrubbing your hands with alcohol. It's a time-consuming, uncomfortable but necessary step in order to prevent contamination of the assembly line. I do very much regret keeping a sweater on underneath the overalls though.

Close, but no cigar: how to design mirrorless right | Ming Thein

Close, but no cigar: how to design mirrorless right | Ming Thein | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

And this is barely half of the mirrorless cameras I’ve used and reviewed on this site in the last couple of years. I still have not found a complete replacement for the DSLR, and I suspect there are many other photographers in the same situation. It isn’t for want of trying or stubbornness; it’s because the product simply does not exist. All of these problem beg the question: just how difficult is it to get it right? Evidently very much so, because not one of the cameras above is free from at least one massive glaring flaw – even ignoring system completeness – that forces you to look elsewhere for a complete solution. It is a shame since if these models had been seeded to photographers and that advice actually listened to, a lot of these things could have been avoided by small firmware fixes.......

Vienna Photobook and the Entertainment of Photography

Vienna Photobook and the Entertainment of Photography | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

So my talk at Vienna is going to be about my German Family Album (you can see some of the pictures here and more of them here) and the stories that Photobooks can tell.
The problem for me is how do you tell family stories, and they are quite tragic and sad story when those stories are overshadowed by the horrors of Nazi Germany.

"We all love Azoulay, Barthes and Baudrillard, but you are killing your audience if the book starts with the dense essay that ticks off the names of the usual suspects. It might tell people how educated you are in conventional photographic theory, but that really means diddly-squiddly to most people. If you want to tell people about your intelligence, rather than spending your £15,000 on making a photobook,  you might as well print a bunch of flyers saying how smart you are, and stand on the corner of the local High Street handing them out to whoever is daft enough to take them."

Yongnuo creates near-clone of Canon 35mm f/2

Yongnuo creates near-clone of Canon 35mm f/2 | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
China-based manufacturer Yongnuo has produced what looks like a near-clone of Canon's well-liked EF 35mm f/2, a lens that dates back to 1990. With a couple of minor exceptions (one of which being the brand name on the front of the lens) the Yongnuo lens looks very similar to Canon's 25-year-old prime, but at an attractive price of ~$115. Read more

Mario Pires's curator insight, October 17, 2014 7:10 AM

Great work Eliot Dudik, a great way to celebrate photography.


"Photography at the College of William and Mary is not solely a technology; it is a vehicle of visual expression with a history of nearly two centuries. Our approach to it will therefore embrace its newest potentials and also grow out of its history, its historical techniques and processes, and its historical achievements, to integrate contemporary and future practices of photographic art at a deep level into William and Mary’s liberal arts tradition. This is what it means to call photography a new way, our newest way, of engaging humanistic thought."

Sometimes it's the little things that count? Like the absent-minded touch of a loved one, or a stray beam of sun slipping through thick cloud and illuminating your child as she plays in the park (which is great, because you lost that kid years ago). Or this: It's my new Lensmate thumbrest and I love it so......

Fujinon XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR ( Fujifilm ) Review / Test

Fujinon XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR ( Fujifilm ) Review / Test | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
One of the core elements of a professional lens system is a fast standard zoom lens. Fujifilm is targeting the higher end of the market so it's no surprise that they came up with their interpretation of the topic - the Fujinon XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR. Some of you may hate the equivalence game by now but still ... this is equivalent to "24-84mm f/4.2" on full format cameras. As such it is a pretty attractive all-round lens which covers everything from moderate wide-angle to moderate tele views. Fast standard zoom lenses are never cheap in the first place and Fujifilm likes to stay away from budget offerings so if you feel the itch be prepared to pay ... a lot - currently about 1000EUR/1200US$.

Me and Mortensen Photography with the Master

Me and Mortensen Photography with the Master | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

When I was seventeen and photography was a lot younger I would sometimes see pictures of by a man named William Mortensen in the photography magazines I read. There was nothing else like them…nothing. They looked like paintings but not, and they were like illustrations but not and they were beautiful but made in a way I couldn’t begin to comprehend. I loved them.

Mario Pires's curator insight, September 9, 2014 4:24 AM

"After a while they disappeared from the publications and I forgot about them but I guess not really because when  I saw one again fifty years later, the surge of emotion that came with recognition took me totally by surprise. I loved them again as strongly as I had as a teenager. I was able to learn, the internet told me parts of the Mortenson’s story , his successes, his fights with Ansel Adams in Camera Craft magazine, his disappearance from photographic history at the hands of Adams and Beaumont Newhall and now  a slow reemergence of him and his work as books were written and his work was republished."


This is quite interesting, photographic history should not erase parts of itself. No one should do it just because they find it "not worthy" of being shown. But then good work emerges from the dungeons to be appreciated by all of us again.
