Das "Pentazhong Nocticon"... | Carsten Schouler

Das "Pentazhong Nocticon"... | Carsten Schouler | Ephemerafotographica | Scoop.it

Wie Sie vielleicht schon bemerkt haben, sehe ich in vielem, über das in den bekannten Foren intensiv diskutiert wird, eine Art “Hype”, der durch eben diese Foren befeuert wird. Es gibt ein paar Ausnahmen. (So finde ich, dass z.B. im “digicamclub.de” kein Hype gepflegt wird, sondern sich ziemlich sachlich über Kameras und Objektive ausgetauscht wird.) Wie auch immer. Einer dieser Hypes ist das Fotografieren mit hochgeöffneten Objektiven. Alles, was eine maximale Blendenöffnung von mehr als f/1.4 hat, wird von Offenblendfans nicht mehr ernst genommen. Es muss schon ein f/1.2-Objektiv sein – wenn möglich noch “schneller”.......

My first serious try with the Leica M Monochrome | Chris

My first serious try with the Leica M Monochrome | Chris | Ephemerafotographica | Scoop.it

It’s been a year or so since I first purchased the Leica M Monochrom. There’s no shred of doubt of its image quality while able to understand what Leica has done to the sensor. On paper there’s nothing special about its specs. Some might even question if there’s a need for a camera that only produces Black and White images. We all know there is some decent film simulator software like SilverFlex Pro, DXO Film Pack, VSCO cam….etc or even some fairly good LR presets out there will do the job for converting color images into black and white with great detail. So, is there a need? If you are a massive black and white photography fan, often make large prints for appreciation and are a LTM lens user then this is the camera for you. I am not going to go through any A&B tests or spec comparisons because they are widely available on the web. What I am going to do is walk you through my first serious try with the Leica M Monochrom......

Crop or Crap? Zack Arias Tackles The Question Of Full Frame vs Crop Sensors | SLR Lounge

Crop or Crap? Zack Arias Tackles The Question Of Full Frame vs Crop Sensors | SLR Lounge | Ephemerafotographica | Scoop.it

Zack Arias is one of the biggest names in photography education of recent years. He built his name on the idea that a photographer can use one light to create stunning images. Today, I am sharing a recent video Zack did tackling the age old (haha, not really) question of Full Frame Sensors vs APS-C Sensors. “I have said, in the past, that you should move toward full frame sensors. I have always championed full frame sensors.” Zack states in the description of his video, “At the end of the day, full frame sensors beat APS sized and smaller sensors.” .......

Full frame is better........ but how much better than the fuji's does it have to get?  I am considering the Sony A7 for adapted lenses but there's that Fuji something that I just love. Maybe with the LR Fuji raw presets..........

A Prospectus On The Leica M-9P vs. Fuji X-Pro1 – Jonesblog

A Prospectus On The Leica M-9P vs. Fuji X-Pro1 – Jonesblog | Ephemerafotographica | Scoop.it

Over the next little while, I am looking forward to comparing and contrasting the Leica M9 experience with the Fuji X-Pro1, a rangefinder style camera that in many ways is the Leica M9s contemporary, yet has shown Leica the way forward.  Last year, I stepped into the Fuji X-mount waters with the X-Pro1 and its been a revelation in so many ways.

Kara Woodward's insight:
this should prove interesting. From what I have seen with a borrowed M(, the Leica has a certain pop and depth that the fuji doesn't have. But the fuji has it's own look that is special too.

Leica Macro Elmar M 90 f4 and Leica Macro Adapter M | L-Camera-Forum

Leica Macro Elmar M 90 f4 and Leica Macro Adapter M | L-Camera-Forum | Ephemerafotographica | Scoop.it

Quite out of the blue, Leica announced these two products at the 100 year celebrations at Wetzlar. I think most people were taken unawares. The lens had been in development for a long time, I had a prototype version in 2013 for testing. The optical design of the lens was the same as the much loved older Macro Elmar, but with some functional refinements to match it with the adapter. In fact, I first spoke to Stefan Daniel and Jesko v. Oeynhausen about the idea of producing a helicoid adapter for M lenses a long time ago – during the early discussions about the M240 and Live View. The idea of being able to use any of the M lenses as a close up lens was very attractive to me (I’d had great results using a Hawks Bay adapter on a Sony NEX camera). I’ve had a lot of questions by email and on Forums and Facebook about both the lens and the adapter, and I think that probably it isn’t terribly well understood. So I thought it would be good to write this short article......

The Leica MM is for me the best camera I have bought. I now own the MM(The best), M240,  A7r,  A7s (fabulous), and also the Lumix GM1 (it’s a perfect micro camera). I like your job.. Thanks for everything. I am sending you some picture of « GILLES » from Belgium, it was in March for the « Carnaval » It was an important feast in my country. Early in the morning Gilles come pick  up other gilles and drink and eat at each house. in front of every house, they dance around… and lunch some oranges to give at children or at people for have a lucky year. I hope you like this.  The Leica 24 Summilux and 50 Noctilux 0.95 was used for that and I was up at 4AM.......

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R Lens Review | Patrick Leong

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R Lens Review | Patrick Leong | Ephemerafotographica | Scoop.it

A fast short-tele portrait lens is a “must-have” for many photographers, especially for those in the wedding and portrait industry yet for a long time, it was missing in the Fuji X Series lineup.  There are third party versions, and there’s also the sharp, compact XF 60mm F2.4 but nothing made by Fuji, below the F2.0 range.  As of spring 2014, that changed with the release of the XF 56mm F1.2 R lens, an optic that many have been patiently waiting for.  With the crop factor taken into account, the 56mm F1.2 is approximately an 84mm equivalent, which is a preferred focal length for many portrait and wedding photographers.  Its fast aperture is also prized in this type of lens both for available light photography and for creating beautiful shallow depth of field or as some refer to as “bokeh”.  So far, the details sound promising but does the XF 56mm F1.2 really cut it?  Is it worth its asking price of $999.00?  Was it worth the wait?  Let’s find out......
