Fujifilm + Zeiss = Vancouver //Kanada | Mehrdad Abedi

Fujifilm + Zeiss = Vancouver //Kanada | Mehrdad Abedi | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Vancouver war einer der Orte, der seit langem auf meiner kleinen Must See Liste stand. Ich hatte so viel gutes über die Stadt in British Columbia gehört, dass ich mir gerne selber ein Bild davon machen wollte. Natürlich war die Zeit, die ich hatte, viel zu kurz – wie eigentlich immer. Es galt also, das Beste in der Kürze der Zeit herauszuholen. Vorab vielleicht noch schnell etwas zu meiner Ausrüstung: Einen Tag bevor es für mich nach Vancouver ging, kam ein großes Paket für mich zu Hause an. Mit freundlichen Grüßen von Carl Zeiss Lenses. Hier hatte ich bereits etwas dazu geschrieben. Neben meiner x-pro1 und den drei Zeiss Objektiven nahm ich noch die Fujifilm x-t1 meiner Frau mit. Eigentlich gibt sie diese nur sehr ungern aus der Hand, selbst mir, aber diesmal hatte sie wohl Mitleid mit mir? Egal, ich nahm das Angebot dankend an. Alle Bilder, die ihr also in diesem Post seht, sind entweder mit der x-pro1 oder der x-t1 entstanden. Wobei ich das 12mm Zeiss eigentlich nur an der x-t1 nutzte. Ich weiß nicht, ob es das Zeiss mit seinem wirklich tollen Aufnahmewinkel war oder die echt tolle x-t1, aber die meisten Fotos entstanden mit dem 12mm. Was ich genau von dem Zeisslingen halte, kommt aber ein anderes Mal. Heute soll die Stadt Vancouver mein Thema bleiben......

Hoar Frost at the Old Barn | Morten Byskov

Hoar Frost at the Old Barn | Morten Byskov | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


The old barn is only a stone's throw from where I live. This morning we woke up to hoar frost and the trees and fields were covered in a thick layer of frost. I have used the old barn as a back drop for several photo shoots over the years so I was disappointed to find it almost completely caved in on itself this morning. Once I am sure a beautiful structure sitting there at the foot of the hills with a great view of the valley. I was ill prepared to shoot this morning as I had driven off without gloves and my toque. With finger numb I came away with a few frames. All images are captured with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 with the XF 35 1.4R lens....

Old Montreal - outside with the XE-1 at night | Alan Bulley

Old Montreal - outside with the XE-1 at night | Alan Bulley | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


It's time for the March school break in Quebec, so my family and I spent a few days in Old Montreal for a change of scenery. The days are getting longer and there is the barest hint of spring when the sun is out, but we know better than to think that winter has finished with us yet. We've been fooled before! A mild evening in Old Montreal gave me a chance to see what my Fujifilm XE-1 could do in low light. Even with snow coming down it was a pleasant walk and the architecture in this corner of the city is always interesting for a photographer. These are all JPEGs straight out of the camera taken at ISO 3200 with the 18-55mm zoom lens. As some reviewers have noted, the electronic viewfinder does indeed lag at times in low light, but I didn't find this too much of a problem. It might be for people who depend on taking a lot of action shots, but that isn't me. I'm still getting over the thrill of carrying a camera that weighs half of my previous kit! The high-quality zoom lens does not add appreciably to the weight around my neck and it focuses and zooms smoothly and accurately. It's a pleasure to use. All told, I am very pleased with the way this camera plays and performs. So much so that I went out and bought the 35mm f/1.4 lens while still in Montreal. More on that in the next instalment...

Jasper in June with Fuji X-Pro1 | Miks Media Photography

Jasper in June with Fuji X-Pro1 | Miks Media Photography | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Continuing from my previous post of testing Fuji X-Pro1 with old Pentax lenses, here are some more landscapes from our quick trip to Jasper National Park. We decided to visit a few new places that time, places that we never visited before. These images are from Edith Cavell mountain area and trails. I was using a Pentax 200mm f4 and 30-70mm f2.8 zoom primarily. Focusing was quite easy, and fast, and it was quite a pleasure to use. They bring a bit of nostalgic feeling to taking images, and glass does not age as quickly as the camera bodies, so even if some of these lenses were made over 30 years ago, they are still as good as the day they were made. Enjoy!

Fuji; Out in the Cold | Donovan Bond

Fuji; Out in the Cold | Donovan Bond | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Maybe it’s because I had been using fully weather-sealed (semi-)pro bodies and lenses from Nikon for the past 5 years, or simply because I live in Canada, but I don’t ever give a second thought to bringing my camera gear out in the temperatures we get during the winter.Maybe it’s because I had been using fully weather-sealed (semi-)pro bodies and lenses from Nikon for the past 5 years, or simply because I live in Canada, but I don’t ever give a second thought to bringing my camera gear out in the temperatures we get during the winter. I was recently chatting with a few people on Twitter about using Fuji cameras in the cold. It seems there is some hesitation to do so at temperatures at around -10˚C. There were also remarks about Fuji cameras not being “freeze proof”. Fuji cameras are comparably sensitive to water and humidity for sure, but I didn’t know for certain what, if any, ill effects shooting in cold temperatures might bring. Based on my experience, they hold up just fine in the cold. A few weeks ago my wife and I spent some time in Québec City. It was cold there. Real cold. The temperature was as low as -28˚C, and colder with the windchill. It was cold enough that after ⅔ of the day, our iPhones would shut themselves down while trying to take pictures, even with around 60% battery. My Fuji X-E2 wasn’t even phased by it.....

Old train yard in St.Thomas | Paul Samoluk

Old train yard in St.Thomas | Paul Samoluk | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


A few days ago i visited St.Thomas Ontario. The purpose of my trip (a.k.a. weekday getaway) was to carry out a modern day merchant (kijiji) transaction fueled by my evident inability to own a cell phone for more then a few months without dropping it. My beloved Blackberry Bold has finally had enough, and due to this lack of care, decided to take a permanent vacation. While driving around this seemingly boring town, i came across an old train yard, with a few rusted down train cars, and an old hangar building. It was a late afternoon and the sun was starting to get ready for its daily journey beyond the limits of our horizon. Something caught my attention and i decided to stop the car, and take a walk over to closer examine the area. The images below are simply my interpretation of what it is that made me stop the car and get out for a nice afternoon walk….

Winding down from summer in Vernon BC | Morten Byskov

Winding down from summer in Vernon BC | Morten Byskov | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I grabbed my bike and my Fujifilm X-Pro1 today and went for a ride along East Vernon Road and into Coldstream. The X-Pro1 really is a marvel of a camera. So light that it never feels like a burden to bring it along. Vernon is winding down from a busy summer and it felt just that way on my ride today. It is still warm here but the colours are fading and we know fall is around the corner. With any luck we usually have about another month of nice weather here so I am looking forward to taking it all in. I deliberately desaturated the colours in my post processing on these images to further emphasize the feel of the day. My favourite shot is the one of the two horses as it hits the spot on the mood here in late summer.
