A Mini Adventure with the X-E1 | David Cleland | Fuji X-Life | Scoop.it


I recently acquired two little, vintage dinky mini cars and normally would have reached for a 50mm lens and a sub f/2.0 aperture to create a miniature world effect. The Fujinon 35mm lens at f/1.4 is equivalent to a 53mm lens at f/2.0 on a full frame camera so I began to wonder if I need to turn to 50mm to achieve the depth of field I was looking for. Starting of with the Fujifilm X-E1 & 18-55mm XF Lens”>18-55mm zoom lens I shot a number of photos of the car (setting the X-E1 on macro mode). You can see from the following two images to get the scale right meant framing at 35mm-55mm....

 

You can see that moving between the 18-55 zoom and 35mm prime offered different focal lengths and I could adjust the scale of the car. I think both the 18-55mm zoom and 35mm prime worked well to achieve a ‘slight’ sense of reality. I am genuinely beginning to wonder if I really need to retain a full frame camera given the quality of photographs I can achieve with the fujinon lenses. I know there is an even finer DoF offered with f/1.4 on full frame but I am just not sure how often I actually need it.

 

Note: All photos were captured on the Fujifilm X-E1 and either the 18-55mm zoom lens or 35mm prime lens.

Project 2012 | Week 38 ( X-pro1 doing actions shots) | Luc Pher

Project 2012 | Week 38 ( X-pro1 doing actions shots) | Luc Pher | Fuji X-Life | Scoop.it

 

This week, I decide to try something different and use the X-pro1 to capture some actions shots together with the 35mm 1.4. The main subjects are skaters at a skate park in the city. It was a short shoot but interesting and fruitful. As most reviewer commented, the AF on the X-pro1 is “OK”. To overcome the slowness, I use pre-focusing and lots of anticipation to capture the action. Coupled with the OVF, I can see outside of the frame to see skaters coming into the frame.

Park in Fog | Jeff Seltzer

Park in Fog | Jeff Seltzer | Fuji X-Life | Scoop.it


Where I live in Southern California ("The Valley") it's rare that we get really thick fog this far inland...it's even more rare that we get really thick fog this far inland, and I'm not too lazy to wake-up and photograph. So, it was a rare occasion indeed last weekend that I got a chance to capture some images at the park around the corner. I love fog because it creates a clutter-free background with just about anything, which is important to me when I shoot. Early morning is also great at the park because there's a relative lack of people getting in my way. Still, several runners stopped and just stared at me as I photographed, no doubt thinking, "what the hell is he taking a picture of??!" (which is a typical reaction for me). All images are taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 with 35mm lens.
