“ All photos copyrighted by Mary Ellen Mark. I remember when I first saw the work of Mary Ellen Mark, I was blown away. Her work had such a deep sense of love and empathy for her subjects. Not only that, but her compositions and framing was brilliant.”

Great show tonight by the young Kiwi band Broods – very impressed with them, I can see why they’re touring with Ellie Goulding at the moment (and she’s a fan, too). Be proud of them, New Zealand! They’re going to get very big, very fast…

“It has been over two years since I switched over from Canon DSLR to the Fuji X-Pro1 and I haven’t looked back. I’ve traveled all over the world with this camera. I road from Paris to Lausanne with her slung around my back. I’ve shot photos for commercial clients and for publications. This little camera has more than met my expectations as a professional use camera.”

Back to the streets with the X-Pro1 | Gabor Nagy | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it
The last couple of months my go to camera for street photography and actually for everything else was the Fuji X100s. As I was getting ready for my next photo walk in the city I checked my equipment and realized that some of the batteries needed to be charged, but the charger just gave up, it didn't work anymore. What to do now, I had a few photo shoot coming up where I was going to use the X100s, but I had only 3 fully charged batteries left, so there goes my little friend back to the bag and I grabbed my old friend, the Fuji X-Pro1 with the 35mm lens. Uh, I missed this beast. And shame on me because of thinking of selling it and get a new X-T1 instead. I'm sure the X-T1 is great and I was really looking forward to try it out but after holding it in my hand for a minute in a camera shop, I still don't know. So we will see if the final nail in the coffin of my Canon kit will be the X-T1 or some other future Fuji camera. (If somebody from Fuji reads this and want to make my decision easier by lending me an X-T1, I wouldn't say no.).......

The X-Pro1 on a rainy day in New York | Tom Grill

The X-Pro1 on a rainy day in New York | Tom Grill | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it
The weather dictated the theme of weekly photo project. It has been raining for three days straight in New York with some occasional mist and haze -- just the kind of weather I love to photograph. I sent my X-T1 off to Fujifilm Repair to have the light leak fixed so it was time to dust off my X-Pro1 and take it out for some exercise. From the point of view of design, the X-Pro1 is still my favorite camera, but it is beginning to get treated like a poor cousin as its newer relatives have been receiving all the updates. I usually like to give myself some restrictions whenever I do these exercises. This time, in addition to using the X-Pro1, I primarily shot with the 55-200mm zoom. For the close-ups I carried along a Nikon 5T and 6T set of 62mm close-up lenses, which have found a new life on my 62mm Fuji lenses......

Berlin with the X-Pro1 - Part the Second | Peter Evans | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it
It's been a while since my last Berlin post. I headed back home to visit my mum and dad (doing fine, thank you) in their strange, dystopian world of no-internet. So for over an entire week there was no checking of emails, browsing of blogs or updating of my website. Instead I gleaned my information through the reading of words, printed in mysterious black fluid on a strange, flexible material made from the pulped remains of trees. You get used to it. So, back to Berlin! ......

Fuji offers a light weight and very capable camera system with some of the best optics and I’m so glad I have switched because now I can finally concentrate on the photography. They currently offer 3 innovative cameras (XPro-1, XE-2 and X-T1) and some of the finest lenses I have ever used. And Fujifilm know a thing or two about making high quality professional grade lenses (look here). So far I have been blown away by the performance of the XF 18-55mm, XF 23mm and the subject of this review, the XF 56mm.

Pimping my Fuji X-Pro1 ~ X-Signature Skin | Kevin Mullins

Pimping my Fuji X-Pro1 ~ X-Signature Skin |  Kevin Mullins | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it

What is the X-Signature range then?  Recently, I was made aware of the new “pimping” service of the X-Series of cameras that Fujifilm have launched in the UK and I believe, worldwide.  The Service involves having your X-Series Camera skinned with a choice of many different options.  Current options include; Racing Green, Burnt Orange, Black Lizard, Blue Lizard, Beige Lizard Emboss, Light Green Lizard, Navy Blue Crinkle, Red Lizard and Red Crinkle Emboss. Now, I’m a reportage wedding photographer right?  Part of my remit at a wedding is try not to stand out in the crowd and to blend in as much as possible.  So, with that in mind, I decided to avoid options such as Red Lizard and Burnt Orange (though I’m sure these will be fine choices for certain people!).  Instead, I went for Black Lizard.  Why?  Well, because it’s black….mostly. The process has been superb.  I ordered my “pimping” on Tuesday.  On Wednesday morning I received a pre-paid box and padded envelope.  I popped my X-Pro1 in the post on Wednesday afternoon.  Less that forty eight hours later I receive a parcel from Fuji with my brand new X-Signature Skinned X-Pro1......

The Perfect Angle | Anson Cheung

The Perfect Angle | Anson Cheung | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it

For street photographers, the 35mm focal length is the undisputed go to lens choice. Being wider than the 50mm but still retaining that normal field of view with a sense of peripheral vision. On a cropped sensored APS camera like the Fujifilm X-Pro1, a lens with a focal length of 24mm would provide the effective 35mm perspective. While Fujifilm does have a 23mm f1.4 lens that fit this segment, it took them quite a while to release the lens. And while, yes, the reviews have been great on this lens, and yes I want one, there are other alternatives. As many already know, one of the great things about the current crop of mirrorless cameras is that they are compatible, using the right adaptor, with many legacy lenses. As a Nikon shooter "previously", I already have a Nikkor 24mm f2.8 AI-s in my arsenal.......

The ART of BOKEH | Sven Schroeter

The ART of BOKEH | Sven Schroeter | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it

Not only is Bokeh beautiful, but it also happens to be a key story telling
element. Once understood, it will open your eyes to new opportunities and improve your work by adding additional punch, wowing your audience. Our band name ‘Bokeh Monster’ came from the frequent use of the technique; shallow depth of field is one of the many ingredients to our unique style. By removing the distracting elements from a background through the use of shallow depth of field techniques, everyone we photograph can be compared on a even playing field. Context and placement are subtracted from the distraction equation, isolating and honing in on a subject's beauty for honest appreciation.......

The Wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko, Chiddingstone Castle, Kent. | Steve Wood

The Wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko, Chiddingstone Castle, Kent. | Steve Wood | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it
Yesterday I assisted in the coverage of the wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko which was held at Chiddingstone Castle Kent.   From the minute I arrived I knew this was a very very special wedding, no expense spared…the Bridal party were stunning, and Samantha the bride was mind glowingly beautiful.  She had a glow about her that only a woman in love could radiate.  I get to see so many stressed brides, Samantha certainly wan’t one of them – she had everything planned to the tee.   The weather was looking unsettled during the bridal preparations, and it looked to thwart an outside wedding which they had planned….in the end the sun did good and followed was a beautiful ceremony held in the Orangery to the rear of the castle in the quaint gardens. Here are few images I made from the day, as always my X-Pro1 is performing flawlessly- discrete, understated and always a conversation piece. Sam & Rich if you are reading this I mean it when I say “It was pleasure to be part of your big day” – the boys and girls were immaculately turned out and everyone made me feel very welcome to be your photographer.

Freelensing With Fuji X-Pro1 | Vintage Lens + Micro 4/3 | Paulius Musteikis | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it
Last Friday I picked up my non functional Olympus RC 35 that was hiding in the deep closet. I picked up this fine little 35mm rangefinder, gently took it apart and dismounted 42mm f/2.8 Olympus Zuiko lens. Afterwards I took the lens apart and took the shutter and aperture blades out. So in the end all I had left was a little peace of beautiful and non working vintage glass. So first of all I tried modified Olympus 42mm f/2.8 Zuiko lens on my DSLR. And it didn’t work. And I would assume it didn’t work because of large gap between handheld lens and the camera sensor. So then I picked up my Fuji X-Pro1. And that was it! I peaked through viewfinder and saw world turning into an awesome abyss of blur. And I was sold.......

The Fuji X-Pro1 does not have an on board flash, so I had to bump up the ISO on most of the inside images because of the dark interior. Most of the following images were done an ISO 1000 and higher, and I think the camera performed very well.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 - Wedding Photography | Sergio Sorrentino | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it
Is the Fuji X-Pro1 a camera suitable for wedding photojournalism photography?I don’t like talking about equipment. As you surely know, in good photography the camera itself has really low importance. However I would like to talk about a camera who have brought to me (again and more) the joy to take images. Put it together an excellent lens lineup and you have the Fujifilm X Series. Briefly, I found this camera to be a joy of use thanks to the light weight, the silent and smooth operation and the ability to completely make me invisible, and this is a very important aspect for wedding photojournalism. The AF operation is good enough for capturing everything happens in a wedding day, from running kids to the first dance with low light. The only disappoint is the slow buffer operation that makes this camera not so good for those photographers who like “spray and pray”. This flaw was finally an advantage for me, I improved my way of shooting, letting me concentrate more to achieve the best image for that moment.....

Review: Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 (X Mount) | The Phoblographer

Review: Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 (X Mount) | The Phoblographer | Fuji X-Pro 1 | Scoop.it

 

Conclusion:


Did you really expect anything else? Fujifilm’s 56mm f1.2 is the sharpest mirrorless camera lens that we’ve tested. Not only that but it exhibits beautiful bokeh, pretty good color rendition, almost no distortion, focuses quickly, and is built well. It’s a bit expensive though, and for that reason we really only want to recommend it to the creme de la creme of the X series users. Shooting images of your cat or breakfast with this lens is a total waste and will make the theoretical photography gods weep tears of fixer fluid. You’ll get the most out of this lens when using it in the studio–so that’s where we recommend that anyone aspiring to get this product uses it. Flash will give you the absolute sharpest images and that’s how you’ll really be able to take the most advantage of what this lens can give you......
