Driving around Europe | Karim Haddad | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

It’s hard to believe that I flew back to Miami from Europe more than two months ago. It was after a relatively short roadtrip that took us to three different countries – Holland, Belgium and Germany. If I didn’t have to wait three days for my luggage to arrive from Libya, we probably would have gotten to France as well. I flew into Amsterdam (via Istanbul) and I had to take a train to Leiden. I was there to visit an old friend of mine who is like a brother. Luckily, it wasn’t too far and well worth the trip. I needed to buy clothes and a toothbrush, but at least I had my camera with me and a few lenses......

Fuji x Pro, Amsterdam loves you! | Suberashi

Fuji x Pro, Amsterdam loves you! | Suberashi | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I love Amsterdam thats a fairly well know fact. Great walkable, creative diverse and beautiful place and the perfect spot to test out the Fuji X Pro that I have invested money research and trust into. This isn't a review or tech spec list, you can go look on line for that stuff. I don't have gear envy so tech specs, card tests all that I will leave to others, mainly as I didn't buy the camera to list it's stats and it's the image not the technology that is most key. How did the Fuji engage me? How did it do in conditions I want and need to use it those are the questions and things more key too me. Fitted with the amazing 35mm 1.4 the Fuji shone, I have come from the beast that was the 5d mkii but as amazing a FF camera it was it was never light or discreet. The X Pro looks like a non "pro photographer" camera and thats the trick. Lighter than it looked and on a full day it never felt like it was getting in the way.....

Short trip to the Netherlands (IJsselmeer) | Detlef Hollerbeck

Short trip to the Netherlands (IJsselmeer) | Detlef Hollerbeck | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


An Fronleichnam ging es für 4 Tage nach Holland. Der erste große Test für meine kleine Fuji XE-1 auf Reisen.

Morgens um 7.00 Uhr war Abfahrt in Richtung Apeldoorn, unserem Zwischenstopp auf dem Weg zum Ijsselmeer. Bei trüben Wetter wurde durch die Stadt gebummelt, für die Kinder Gelegenheit zu shoppen, für mich ein wenig Zeit zum fotografieren. Sehr viel gab der Ort aber in der kürze der Zeit nicht her. Am Nachmittag sind wir dann in Workum, unserem Urlaubsort am Ijsselmeer angekommen und haben unser Zimmer in dem Hotel "Gast-Inn" direkt am Hafen von Workum bezogen. Ein sehr gemütliches Hotel mit einem sehr netten Eigentümer Ehepaar. Kann man ruhigen Gewissens empfehlen! ....

A tale of two churches with two cameras, the Olympus E-PM2 and Fuji X100S | Atmtx Photo Blog

A tale of two churches with two cameras, the Olympus E-PM2 and Fuji X100S | Atmtx Photo Blog | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I visited two magnificent churches in Amsterdam. Both beautiful in their own way and both very different. So different, in fact, that I shot them in distinct ways with my two cameras. What’s a trip to Europe without shooting some of these wonderfully ornate structures. I had my Olympus E-PM2 with a wide-angle lens for this purpose and luckily both places seemed fine with me using a tripod. I also shot my Fujifilm X100S but in a different way. I knew the 35mm equivalent lens on the X100S would not capture the entirely of the place. Rather, my purpose with that camera was to concentrate on details.......

Amsterdam: Street Photography From a Boat | Tim Steadman

Amsterdam: Street Photography From a Boat | Tim Steadman | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


This past July, my wife and I and our 5 month old son took a canal cruise in Amsterdam. Armed with a Fuji X-Pro 1, 18-55mm lens, and a couple shoulders worth of baby and associated paraphernalia, we found our dock, waited in the shade, and boarded a large, flat, and disrespectfully orange canal cruiser. Passing the friendly yet dispirited looking skipper, I noticed how crowded the boat was. The only available seats were under glass. Damn! The glass which protects tourists from the notoriously unpredictable weather of Amsterdam was stubbornly blocking any breeze that was desperately needed on that muggy July day. It was also doubling as a seriously neglected 1" thick Chinese knock-off Tiffenesque quality lens filter.  We sat down. Annoying thoughts began to surface... Maybe the glass will add a trendy patina to the photos?... Man it is hot... We paid to sit in a floating greenhouse... I turned around. Look at those lucky people in the back with their hair flowing in sync with the cool Netherlandic breeze... Good thing this is a Hop on Hop off boat...

I was able to have an afternoon's worth of relaxed shooting in Amsterdam today, so I thought I'd grab the opportunity. I decided to focus on "tourist" Amsterdam, the area in the old city bordering right on the red light district. This area is completely dominated by cannabis tourism, which is obvious if you look at the type of shops here: either baked goods shops catering to the munchies or shops selling smoking paraphernalia. This area is the venue for stag parties and usually the only part of the city backpacking gap year students experience. Yet it is also one of the oldest and most beautiful parts of the city.
