Fuji X -Series cameras are amazing street style cameras or reportage cameras, this is only half the story though.

Billingham Hadley Pro with Fujifilm's X-Pro 1 | Jon Adair

Billingham Hadley Pro with Fujifilm's X-Pro 1 | Jon Adair | Cool Photography stuff | Scoop.it


It’s been over a year since I took delivery of my Billingham Hadley Pro. In that time, I’ve acquired a completely different camera system than the Canon 5D Mark II that I started out with: Fujifilm’s fantastic X-Pro 1, complete with the 18mm, 35mm, 60mm and 18-55mm zoom. Read on to find out how I use my Hadley Pro with the X-Pro 1. While the Hadley Pro was great with the 5D, it is simply perfect for the X-Pro 1. The body plus all four lenses, spare batteries, filter and lens pen all fit without the bag being full, leaving space for a few more small accessories and even an iPad mini. With everything in place, there is still space to work with this bag – changing lenses and batteries is no problem. My setup is to have the 60mm lens beneath the 18 on the left hand side with one of the small dividers that Billingham provides to separate them. I use the 60mm far less often than the other lenses as it’s quite slow to focus (but is incredibly sharp). In the central space, I have the 35mm (my favourite of the 4 lenses) and in the right hand side is the X-Pro 1 body with the 18-55mm lens mounted. The iPad mini fits comfortably in the space between the inner padding and the front left pocket. The batteries, filters, memory card and lens pen all fit happily in the two front pockets, leaving plenty of space for a few other accessories.

 

Overall, the Billingham Hadley Pro works fantastically well for this type of setup, as well as for much larger cameras. I can’t recommend it enough if you’re looking for a classically styled, extremely high quality, buy-it-once camera bag.

Los coches antiguos, aparentemente le dan un aspecto y sabor antiguo, casi nostálgico y romántico, pero en realidad son una fuente de contaminación importante, los habaneros respiran veneno.

For most people who know me, they will know, or soon will know how much I love the Fuji X-Pro1. This Newton inspired shoot with Sarah Beaufoy & Coco de Mer (www.coco-de-mer.com) was shot using the X-pro and just the light in the room. We had a spare day and thought we should have a little shoot using the house. As all photographers grow we change our style and change the inspirations behind the work, at the moment I do seem drawn to the powerful iconic photos of the Newtons and Baileys. One of the things about Newtons work I love is the way he keeps away from normal angles and lighting. Something we was keen to try with this shoot. The Black and white conversion was done in camera using the Fuji Film Simulation modes. Some extra dodge and burning was added in Photoshop after. I used the technique of making a new 50% Gray layer and converting this into soft light then painting on the layer with large soft brushes. Trying to preserve the noise from the camera was an important detail. Shooting at High ISO on the Fuji is great as you can use it to creative effect in a nice way, especially with B&W. These were shot using the Red Filter.
