Poppi, Italy. 2013. | Rebecca Lily | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it


We just arrived home from our trip a few days ago, and are getting settled back in to our routine and everyday life. After a month of exploring Italy and seeing some of the most beautiful places on earth (Lake Como and Val D’Orcia), I found it difficult to return to Ireland. I felt very connected to Italy and thrived on the Mediterranean diet, the abundant sunshine and beautiful weather, and the live-and-let-live mentality there. For me, funny as it might sound, it felt like leaving home not coming back to it. But I know I am part gypsy and probably not very normal with that.

I shot mostly film on our trip, all medium format on my Contax 645. It’s currently on its way to Richard Photo Lab in California for developing. I’m so excited to see our results in a couple of weeks and to be able to relive the wonderful memories Johnny and I made over this month of travel together. In the meantime, I wanted to share a few digital images I took with my Fuji X-E1. I went out twice with the Fuji, once to Poppi and once to Montepulciano. It’s a great little travel camera: compact, lightweight, and unobtrusive (a nice counterbalance for the Contax!). And I love the colors it produces. I’m really happy I brought it to shoot along with film......

9 Essential Accessories For the Fujifilm X System or Window Washing the Xpro | David George Brommer

9 Essential Accessories For the Fujifilm X System or Window Washing the Xpro | David George Brommer | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it


The Fujifilm Xpro 1 is a superb camera and many photographers are singing its praise while making great images from this unique and high quality digital rangefinder. There are a few pieces of gear that can really enhance the Xpro1 and this post is dedicated them. After using the camera for a year and a half and having a load of friends also indulge in the Xpro1 I built this list with authority. Some of it can apply to the XE1 and XE2 and some can’t, I’ll let you know so all Fujifilm X system shooters can benefit from these suggestions. So here we go, the 9 essentials.....

Fuji X-Trans And Aperture 3

Fuji X-Trans And Aperture 3 | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it

In celebration of getting a tiny little nudge towards a new Aperture in the form of Aperture 3.5 I thought I would share one of the seemingly thousands of twitter/email conversations so far this week regarding Aperture 3 and post processing. This one is specific to getting the most out of the Fuji X-TRANS sensor in Aperture 3. I am going to focus in a something I never brought up before even though it can be an extremely powerful adjustment in Aperture 3 - RAW fine tuning.

First Impressions: Fujifilm X-E2 - The Phoblographer | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it

Fujifilm recently updated their prosumer targeted X-E1 camera to the X-E2. The new update is overall a minor upgrade to the one of the company’s previous best sellers. With a still modest 16.3MP APS-C sized sensor (though a new one inside) the camera mostly enjoys a couple of spec bumps with some other features like real exposure preview and some improved autofocusing.

Back from the dead: Fujifilm boosts X100 with major firmware upgrade: Digital Photography Review

Back from the dead: Fujifilm boosts X100 with major firmware upgrade: Digital Photography Review | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it

Following recent updates to the X-Pro1 and X-E1, Fujifilm has released a major upgrade to the X100, the original (now-discontinued) X-series model, which was announced back in 2010. Since its release, the X100 has benefitted from a series of major firmware improvements, and the latest - likely to be the last - offers faster startup time, and improvements to automatic and manual focus. Firmware v2.0 is available for download today.


And this leads us to the second respect in which Fujifilm's announcement is significant. We're pretty sure that no one has ever done this before. ...

Preview: The 2013 Fujifilm X-E2

Preview: The 2013 Fujifilm X-E2 | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it

The Fujifilm X-E2 is a welcome update to last year’s popular X-E1. The camera takes the innards of the X100s and puts them in an X-mount body; it isn’t the X-Pro2 that a lot of users were hoping for, but it’s a significant enough update – for those who had issues with AF speed at least – to warrant serious consideration. In fact, I was sent a list of 61 improvements the X-E2 carries; some new to the camera, some inherited from the X-M1 and others from the X100s. I personally have had a rather inconsistent experience with Fujifilm products; on one hand, I absolutely love their films – Acros is my mainstay in all formats – but was left highly expectant and then disappointed by several cameras, first the original X100, then the X-Pro1, the XF1 and finally the X20. These are cameras I wanted to love, but found lacking in several areas; ultimately, I landed up with M4/3 as my compact system choice due to maturity of cameras and lenses. Many have asked why I don’t seriously consider the X system; I was offered a pre-production prototype by Fujifilm Malaysia, and I cleared a few days in the schedule to seriously revisit the system.

Step aside Leica, the Fuji X-Pro1 is here! | Paul Komarek | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it


As you may know, I'm not one to recommend a product unless I own the product myself and can attest to its worthiness to make my list of recommendations, and that holds true for any product whether it's an inexpensive filter or a multi-thousand dollar camera system. In fact, until now, I have not recommended a camera system outside of Canon's lineup simply because I haven't found one worthy of recommendation. That changed when I got my hands on Fuji's X-Pro1 camera system and began putting it through its paces. To start, this is not your typical pro camera--it's not a bulky SLR or a point-and-shoot, but rather a mirrorless, hybrid rangefinder system. In fact the closest thing I can relate this camera system to is the Leica M9 digital rangefinder. The Leica M series rangefinders have been in a league of their own for years, however, that has now changed with the birth of the Fuji X-Pro1. I know that by saying that, I'm making a very large claim to fame for the X-Pro1 but in this review, I intend to show you why Leica now has some competition--in fact, with a price point of $1,200 compared to Leica's $7,900, it's some serious competition! Fuji initially introduced the FinePix X100 which was a large-sensor compact with a cool retro style, very much mimicking the Leica bodies with its manual control knobs and sleek, sturdy build. Underneath that sleek, sturdy build, however, was an array or modern technologies aimed at producing pro-grade image quality. It was no surprise then when less than a year later Fuji announced the X-Pro1 with its interchangeable lens system--the first mirrorless camera system aimed specifically at professional photographers.....

Fujifilm X-E2 combines best features of three X-Series cameras

Fujifilm X-E2 combines best features of three X-Series cameras | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it

Armed with the focusing speed of the X100S, the wireless connectivity of the X-M1, and the design and shell size of the X-E1, Fujifilm’s newest addition to the X-Series is clear proof of the line-up’s progressive evolution. The X-E2, marketed as the successor of the X-E1, comes with the same X-mount that is used across the entire X-Series line, an EXR II image processor, and a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor. Fujifilm’s X-Trans sensor does not make use of an optical low-pass filter (OLPF)—a common solution for eliminating moiré (the strange waves or maze-like patterns that appear in pictures of stripes and other patterns) that, on the downside, causes loss in sharpness—since it is equipped with a special color filter arrangement that makes it capable of minimizing the occurrence of moiré on its own.

I finally took the plunge and went for the Zhongyi Lens Turbo Adapter for Minolta. Rather than going into details already well written by Jonas and Jordan Steele of Admiring Light, I’ll just add to what they said in my initial findings using this adapter for a short period of time so far with a Wide Angled Lens, in this case the Minolta MC 24mm F/2.8, ( one hell of a lens ) I will be testing this adapter with tons of other Minolta lenses as time goes by so check back often.

The Photographer’s Camera

The Photographer’s Camera | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it

Then the Fuji X100 arrived. This camera could happen because those who designed it started from scratch. They didn’t want another “me too” SLR-like product. And it became an instant classic. We (photographers) suddenly woke up and knew what was missing and how things should be.

 

When I first held the Fuji X100 in my hands I knew that this was what a real photographer’s camera should be like. In an instant, we became one. We merged. Only then did it occur to me that since the outset of digital photography we have been fed technology for technophiles, not photographers. We have been cheated out of real photography.

...

This brings me back to Fuji. Fuji – you started this revolution. The Fuji X100s is still my favourite camera but the competition is catching up. The ball is in your court.

I have never processed a single roll of film, never. My last attempt at film, the snaps I shot on a roll is still stuck in the camera and have been for a while, I have no intention of doing jack with it, if I recall the film stock is Tri-X. I do however like the look of film as an artistic effect on digital images, simulating the look of old film stock using Plug-Ins such as AlienSkin can be a lot of fun. Every once in a while if the mood or image permits, I burn these looks to my photos. I have been an AlienSkin user for a while, it does what it does and quite well for that matter at least to my eyes and in comparison to other Plug-Ins out there such as VSCO which for some reason or another I never used, perhaps it is just the fact that I felt like in many cases I could achieve the same look with AlienSkin so I never bothered trying it, not to mention I don’t use these Plug-Ins that much to justify splurging on every Film Simulation Plug-In that touts being the closet to the real thing, like I said I use AlienSkin for the look I get not to actually replicate film stock exactly - in my opinion there is no such thing, sure these Plug-Ins are good or fantastic for getting close and that’s enough for me. Haven’t never shot film as already stated, who am I to say which or what is what in terms of how close to actual film? Just have fun with whichever you choose to use .....

About Photography: Using the Fuji X-E1 in place of my Hasselblad to photograph late autumn leaves

About Photography: Using the Fuji X-E1 in place of my Hasselblad to photograph late autumn leaves | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it

A long time ago I began a project of photographing the fallen leaves of late autumn, leaves past their prime, leaves that had already lost their brilliant color and vibrancy and were in a final state of decay.

 

...

 

I treated the leaves as sculptural elements and photographed them in my studio on film with a Hasselblad 500CM. I have repeated this project every year since, changing the style of photography each year while trying to remain faithful to the original theme. This year I went back to my roots, however instead of using the Hasselblad, I relied on a Fuji X-E1 which I put into its square format in homage to the Hasselblad.

Street: Fuji X-Pro1 vs Canon 5D MKII | Dade Freeman | Fuji X-E1 and X-PRO1 | Scoop.it


On Friday I met up with Julie Edwards in a café, before putting her FujiFilm X-Pro 1 through its paces as we stalked the streets of Worthing. Julie had kindly agreed to share her knowledge, camera and time with me while we did a little street photography to compare our cameras and their abilities. Julie, a working professional photographer and Nikon shooter, reached into her small bag and brought out the Fujifilm X-Pro1. The first thing I noticed was that it has a retro die-cast aluminium alloy body and is clearly aimed at the DSLR user, being the bridge between the fixed lens mirrorless systems and the chunky DSLR world. Could this be the fabled DSLR killer? Julie has only had the camera for about a month, and already she says it will be her “go to” camera. Although it may not be as fast and work as well in low light as her DSLR, she has used it on a shoot and the client couldn’t tell the difference between her usual DSLR images and the ones taken with the X-Pro1. This bodes well and opens up a lot of opportunities. So, with coffee over and done with, it was time to hit the streets, cameras in hand. I popped on my 50mm lens to give me the same focal length as her 35mm (crop factor) although Julie did have the option to go to f/1.4, unlike me. The camera comes with a neck-strap but, much like the Canon EOS-M strap, it is pretty pointless and ends up wrapped around the wrist. :/ ....

I have gone through lots and lots of shots taken with my cameras and after that process it seems quite clear to me that I am going to take my Fuji X-Pro1 with me to our vacation. Why so?

You really can’t beat the IQ of X-Pro1 and XF 35mm/1.4 combo with my other cameras. You can get nice thin DoF and so pleasing bokeh with that combo. I have always been little bit towards longer focal lengths so the 50 mm equivalent is a good general purpose lens for me.

When I switched to digital the foliage season here in Ontario has become a very challenging photography exercise for me. I just couldn't capture the palette of colours when nature explodes and leaves beginning to change from green to fiery hues. I've tried various  cameras from every leading brand but never got it done right. Until the Fuji X-Trans is arrived. After using X-Pro1 for more than a year, I have to say that this camera+sensor+lens(s)  is truly a perfect "colour capturing" combination.....
