Fuji X-Pro-1 back button focus | Paul Samoluk

Fuji X-Pro-1 back button focus |  Paul Samoluk | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it


What is back button focus and why should you care?

I switched to using the back button (AE-L AF-L) to focus my camera a few months ago and can honestly say i could never go back to the traditional way of auto focusing using your shutter button. It will take a little getting used to at first, but if you stick with it, i can promise you will feel the same way i do. So what is it exactly? In the traditional way of auto focusing your camera, you would half press the shutter, which engages the auto focus system, get the camera to lock focus, and then take the picture by pressing the shutter button all the way down. Ok i am not undermining your intelligence by stating the obvious here, but i wanted to set a baseline for our discussion. With back button focus, you essentially disassociate the function of auto focusing your camera from the function of taking the actual image. You use two buttons instead of one which on the surface may seem quite odd and less efficient but works wonders once you get used to it. Things look even peachier (yes i said peachier) with the X-Pro-1 because the genius minds over at Fuji, know their ergonomics, and placed the buttons in a fantastic place. We will get to that in a minute, first lets continue exploring the idea of back button focus. Here is why you should care about this, and possibly give it a try....

On Location With The Fuji X-Series | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it
I am slowly getting back into the swing of things after a short Christmas break.

As I still hadn’t had enough play-time with the Arri T1, I was more than happy to schedule…

Fuji XF90mm f/2 or the Fuji XF50-140mm zoom? | Damien Lovegrove

Fuji XF90mm f/2 or the Fuji XF50-140mm zoom? | Damien Lovegrove | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

A question I’m often asked by delegates, blog readers and Tweeters is “Should I buy the Fuji XF90mm lens?” My answer is it depends upon what you shoot and how you shoot. Let me explain… If you use a tripod to shoot landscapes then the 90mm is perfect, If you live in California where the sun always shines and you like to shoot hand held portraits out in the open then yes get the 90mm. The 90mm lens is tack sharp, lightweight and has good contrast. If however you like to shoot interior portraits hand held, shoot hand held with flash or work in shady places then the Fuji XF50-140mm lens is the one for you. It is no surprise that the 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses in the SLR world are the preferred choice of most portrait and wedding professionals and the 50-140mm f/2.8 delivers that combination of excellent quality and convenience to Fuji X users........

Tethered Shooting With The Fuji X-T1 | Arno Jenkins

Tethered Shooting With The Fuji X-T1 | Arno Jenkins | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

Last week Fujifilm quietly released the plugin allowing Fuji X-T1 users to shoot tethered to Adobe Lightroom. I have been patiently waiting for this feature since I switched to Fuji from Canon. So was the wait worth it? For me the answer is yes. When I’m in the studio shooting products or portraits viewing the image on a big screen seconds after it’s taken is worth the small price of the software. It speeds up my entire process. I can see if things are in focus, what the lighting truly looks like, and if the client is in the room they can approve the image right then. I’m sure for some people the fact that Fuji is charging $29.00 for this plugin is an immense turnoff, but for me it’s a small price to pay for all the time it saves me.What does this plugin do, and what does it not do? It allows you to click the shutter button from within Lightroom without touching the camera and it transfers the image into Lightroom instantaneously. That’s it. It does not let you control or make any changes to the camera settings. You can apply a “Develop Setting” as the images are imported into Lightroom by selecting which Preset you want to apply, if any......

How I Became a Location Independent Travel Photographer | Fstoppers

How I Became a Location Independent Travel Photographer | Fstoppers | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it
Naomi and I just celebrated our 40th month of being on the road full-time and living a 100% location independent lifestyle. Looking back, it seems like a lifetime ago when we made that crazy decision to sell nearly everything we owned and adopt a life filled with travel photography. In a way, it really was a lifetime ago because we were completely different people back then living very different lives; two people with a dream of what could be, teeming with optimism, but with no real idea of how it would all work out in the end.
