The Fuji X-Series and a trip to Cornwall | Paul Melling

The Fuji X-Series and a trip to Cornwall | Paul Melling | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

We have just got back from a week away in St Ives. It’s one of my favourite places to visit in the UK and when you get the weather it’s just about perfect. St Ives is blessed with some fantastic beaches, which essentially surround the small fishing town. The harbour area is the bustling focal point of St Ives with its shops, restaurants, cafés and traditional old pub – The Sloop Inn. The tables outside the pub face the harbour and it’s a great spot for people watching. On elf the first things I do when I arrive in St Ives is order a pint of Doombar, sit back and just relax. The atmosphere is unique. Local fishermen mix with tourists and conversations play out against a background soundtrack of waves gently lapping on the shore and the shrill sound of seagulls. The only sound more shrill than the gulls is the screams of newbie tourists losing their newly purchased ice-creams and pasties to the swooping airborne aggressors. Here are a few photos from this year’s visit.  The pictures here were taken on the Fuji X-Pro1with mainly the new 10-24mm f4 and the X-E1 with the 55-200mm attached. The reason for the two bodies was that it enabled me to cover a wide range of shots without changing lenses in what can be a fairly dusty environment with all that sand swirling around.........

Nike Air Max Lunar1 meets Fuji X-Pro | Suberashi

Nike Air Max Lunar1 meets Fuji X-Pro | Suberashi | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Another week another shoe release, but this is very very special. The Nike Air Max arrived in 1987. Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker wanted the most comfortable shoe on the market, Nike had already given is the waffle sole, but they wanted more for their top class athletes. Nike had gotten people running and this was the next step. This shoe was different it had this magic little air bubble or Air Bag in the sole, the first time I saw a pair I was 13 or 14 JD Sports had a real small store in Birmingham and these where there all new and groundbreaking. Inspired by the Pompidu Centre in Paris they had the same outside in design as the famous paris tourist spot. I remember the whole Air bag puncturing fable, I remember being sent home from school as they didn't meet the uniform. Pestering my dad till he gave in. It was a love affair that has gone on and on......

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

The Wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko, Chiddingstone Castle, Kent. | Steve Wood | Fuji X-Pro1 | 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.

The firmware update Ver. 3.30 from Ver. 3.20 incorporates the following issues:

  1. Addition of compatibility with "XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR"
    To ensure that autofocus performs as expected, upgrade the firmware for the camera.

  2. Change of aperture display for zoom lenses
    Display of aperture value when zooming with the shutter button pressed halfway will become same as the display when zooming without the shutter button pressed.

Night Street Photography in Budapest With a Fuji X-Pro 1 | Keith Moss

Night Street Photography in Budapest With a Fuji X-Pro 1 | Keith Moss | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Budapest comes alive at night.. Its early June and its starts to get dusk around 9pm, I’m using my Fuji X-Pro 1 tonight and it’s a great opportunity to capture the iconic Chain Bridge, illuminated with my Fujinon XF 18mm F2 R lens. Speaking to a local I was told all of the bridges are lit up at 9pm, so having checked out the location earlier I knew exactly where I wanted to capture the bridge from which was from the Buda side of the city and slightly downstream. I always travel light for street photography which means I never take a tripod. Sometimes I do regret this as it does hinder me when capturing movement. But I much prefer nowadays to hand hold so if I am shooting film I always have a couple of rolls of Ilford 3200asa which allows me to walk the streets and hand hold my camera in most situations, but tonight I am shooting with a digital camera. I applied rule number one in the Keith Moss night street photography rulebook and that is to underexpose by one stop. Using the Fuji X-Pro1 which is excellent at high ISO, I set it to 1600 ISO. I used an 18mm F2 Fuji lens which I have to say is excellent, exposure was 60th of a second and I shot at F2.8.. perfect.......

Venice | Sam Burton

Venice | Sam Burton | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

We were lucky enough to spend a long weekend in Venice recently. This was a joint celebration for my mums 60th Birthday and my Aunt taking part in the annual Vogalonga boat race. We have wanted to go to Venice for a long time and were not disappointed. Arriving in Venice is like arriving on a film set. It is like no where else in the world I have been. Its an incredibly beautiful city with lots of culture and amazing architecture. We were treated to four days of perfect weather with blue skies and bright sunshine. Venice is the perfect place just to wonder and get lost. Exploring the alleyways and weaving around the canals is a lot of fun. I took my trusty Xpro1 along to keep the weight down. There were so many incredible sights I didn't know where to point my camera, it really is one of the most photogenic cities I have visited. Here is a selection of my favourite shots from our trip. All taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 with XF 35mm & XF 18mm lenses and edited with VSCO Film......

Two Years on a Bike With the Fuji X-Pro1 | Kevin Sparrow

Two Years on a Bike With the Fuji X-Pro1 | Kevin Sparrow | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

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. My initial review of the X-pro1 on PINP, I gave a lot of insight on what I liked about the camera and some things that needed improvement, such as focus speed and shutter lag. However, after 2 years and a few firmware updates, a few of these issues have been fixed. Shutter lag and auto-focus speed has improved. It might not have improved enough for some, but for me it was enough to keep it at my side.........

Broods at GoodGod Club, Sydney (with Fuji X-Pro 1, 60mm f/2.4) | Robert Catto | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

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…

NY with Fuji X Pro1 | Pieter Vermeulen

NY with Fuji X Pro1 | Pieter Vermeulen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

After years of shooting with my Canon 5D and other big camera’s I bought a Leica M8.2 a little over a year ago along with two nice Elmarit lenses. In the end, it wasn’t for me. I loved shooting with and getting that Leica feeling, but the ISO performances were so bad that I could not justify it. Thought of buying a M9 instead, but even for the extra money I could not just do it. I also bought the Fuji X100S when it came out and loved it. I did sell it after 2 months because the fixed focal length wasn’t for me. So I sold everything and bought the Fuji X Pro 1 with the 18mm 2.0 and the 35mm 1.4. Fell in love with it. Wasn’t the Leica M but it was what I was looking for. So when I went to New York for the first time in my life (actually flying for the first time in my life after being scared of flying my entire life) I brought the X Pro. One day… I will go back to Leica… but for now… the Fuji helped in capturing the people of New York. Just wanted to share! .......

A Bride Unveiled | Natalie Ha

A Bride Unveiled | Natalie Ha | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

My parents are Chinese, they were born in China, where they lived for a few years and then they moved to Vietnam where they spent a lot of their years. They had to make a run for it when the war started, my mum and dad split the children up, they had five children at the time, dad took the boys and mum took the girls. My mum made it to L.A and my dad went to Hong Kong, and they had to somehow find a way to meet each other again. Eventually my dad also made it to L.A, him and my mum met up and they moved to England. They pretty much trekked around Asia, then to L.A (where they could have settled down) then they moved to England, where I was born........

Erika against white | Timo Koponen

Erika against white | Timo Koponen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Last time I shot with Erika (here), I ranted how shooting in a small white room is a giant pain in the ass. Light spill, uncontrollable reflections, mental breakdown, suicidal thoughts, etc... Well, this time it's pretty much the opposite. Let's see how we can turn that small white room in to a huge light modifier. When I shoot with natural light I usually tend to a) back light my subjects, or b) use hard, direct sunlight. I hate overcast days and I much rather shoot in high noon on a sunny day than say, during golden hour. I like to have plenty of light. Hard light. Light of the golden hour lacks balls. So, how do you create heavy back light or direct sunlight with strobe? .......

Sailing | Little Big Traveling Camera

Sailing | Little Big Traveling Camera | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I was the first one who walked upstairs and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. The view was fantastic but what I loved even more was the have a couple of quiet and peaceful minutes on the upper deck of our boat. This is my third trip to Asia. I can remember how I felt before the first one. I was nervous because of the high population density of the places I will see. I go there for business so the only places I usually see are the big cities like Hanoi, Saigon ( HCMC ), Bangkok, Manila or Jakarta. These are all mega cities with more inhabitants than the small country where I was born and live. I lived in Vienna for almost 20 years but Vienna is a city of just 1.7 million, if you add its surroundings it´s 2.5. In the list of the biggest 200 metropolitan areas Vienna ranks 179. In this list Jakarta is second with almost 30 million. Manila made it in the Top10 too. There are a couple of other lists on the internet and there is no standard to tell what a city is and to determine the number of its inhabitants. But it doesn’t matter. These cities are really big and can be overwhelming.....

Back to the streets with the X-Pro1 | Gabor Nagy

Back to the streets with the X-Pro1 | Gabor Nagy | Fuji X-Pro1 | 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.).......
