More thoughts of the Fuji X-Pro1 | Gabor Nagy | Fuji X-Life | Scoop.it


I have my X-Pro1 over a month now and I'm pretty happy with it. So satisfied that I only took out my 5D mkII once and when I did so I realized my Canon with the 50mm f1.4 lens hunts more than the Fuji does. Yes, the X-Pro1 has it quirks. Does it frustrate me? No. Although there are few things I'd like to change if I could and if you read this you probably know what I'm talking about. One of them is that there is no minimum shutter speed in auto ISO mode and an other thing which actually bothers me more is the position of the auto focus selection button, it would be great to be able to assign the Fn button to select the focus point. Anyway, hopefully Fuji listens and will address these in a future firmware update. Meanwhile here are couple of shots from the last weeks when my grandma came over to visit us and did a few trips around Dublin. Most of the photos were taken with the 18mm f2.0 lens and processed in Lightroom 4.

Seeing in Black & White | Kate Lockhart | Fuji X-Life | Scoop.it

 

Back in the summer, when I was spending time in New Hampshire, I talked about my inability to “see” in black & white. While I do convert a shot to B&W every now and then, it’s not something I do with any regularity. Funny thing is, I LOVE black and white photography when it is done well. When the Leica Monochrome was announced this spring, I found the concept of a digital camera that can only shoot in B&W fascinating. While the cost of the camera is crazy high, especially for a black and white ONLY camera, I’ll admit that there’s something appealing to me about only being able to shoot in black & white. I’m convinced that after a period of time with the Leica Monochrome, I would be able to see in B&W and my B&W photography would improve as well. Fortunately for me, I can use my X-Pro 1 set to “monochrome” as a “poor man’s Leica Monochrome.” Given my recent disenchantment with the X-Pro 1, setting it up as a B&W only camera for a period seems like a good way for me to continue to use it. Fortunately for me, I have one of the world’s most gorgeous models at my disposal every day. So, with the X-Pro 1 set to monochrome mode, I grabbed my girl and commenced with a portrait session. What’s so cool about the X-Pro 1 is that using the electronic viewfinder (EVF) I can see the photo in black and white as I compose it. So I LITERALLY get to see the shot in B&W before I take it. It’s sort of like cheating, but I found it helpful. I’m very happy with the results from this “shoot.” In fact, I think these are some of the best shots I’ve taken of Fenway. I’m confident that if I keep using the X-Pro 1 in monochrome and I become more comfortable shooting in black and white you’ll begin to see more monochromatic shots on the site.
