On vacation with Fujifilm X-T1 + 14mm + X100s | Lars Øivind Authen

On vacation with Fujifilm X-T1 + 14mm + X100s | Lars Øivind Authen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I recently spend one week camping in the southern and south western part of Norway, on the coast line from Kristiansand to Stavanger. It's a beautiful area of Norway I think, especially in the summer. You don't have the nice deep fjords of western Norway, or the mountains of North Norway that goes steep into the sea - but this part of Norway has its beauty of its own I think. I could have used a lower ISO and 1/60 sec and gotten a sharp image - but the wind made the grass swayed in the wind so I bumped the ISO to 800. Also I wanted to use f/16 to get it nice and sharp from front to back. I travelled together with my wife. She is pregnant, and that made some impact of what I could and could not do. Most of my photos were taken during day time, in harsh sun light. Not the best time of the day for taking pictures. Still, I managed to get out some mornings on my own and take som shots, while she was sleeping.....

Fujifilm BLC-XT1 Leather Case for Fujifilm X-T1 | Lars Øivind Authen

Fujifilm BLC-XT1 Leather Case for Fujifilm X-T1 |  Lars Øivind Authen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

A lot has been written already about Fujifilm X-T1 which was released recently. I picked mine up on tuesday 25. february. Today I also picked up the official leather case for the camera, Fujifilm BLC-XT1. The package itself comes with the leather case, a strap and a cloth. It mounts to the camera with a screw on the bottom, this also works as a mounting hole for tripod mounts, so you can use the camera with the leather case on a tripod. It is also possible to change batteries with the case still on the camera. Unfortuneatly, you cannot change memory cards because the memory card slot is now located in the right side of the camera and not at the bottom as on the earlier Fuji X models. The case provides a nice grip on the camera, and protects it further. The X-T1 is already weather resistant......

Winter, cold, snow - who needs the weather sealed X-T1? Fujifilm X-Pro1 in cold weather | Lars Øivind Authen

Winter, cold, snow - who needs the weather sealed X-T1? Fujifilm X-Pro1 in cold weather |  Lars Øivind Authen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Living in Norway, I'm used to all kinds of weather. Rain, snow, tough winds and storms. Sometimes plus 25-30 degrees celcius in the summer, and down to minus 30 degrees celcius in the winter. So - I'm waiting in big anticipation for the upcomping Fujfilm X-T1 with its weather sealed body. My biggest concern is that it seems very small. I like the size of the X-Pro1. But, being weather sealed is a big plus. For now we only know of one weather sealed lens, the 18-135mm zoom, so perhaps I will wait a bit longer than the mid February release. Anyway - who says I have to wait? Today it was minus 18 degrees celcius, snow and wind - and my Fujifilm X-pro1 with the XF14mm f/2.8 and XF 35mm f/1.4 performed flawlessly....

Winter time is here... but where is the snow? Usually we have snow where I live, at least some snow if not perfect skiing conditions. I'm longing to use my 14mm (21mm FF) wide angle lens and take some winter pictures. This is all I got for now.. no snow.....

Fujifilm X-T1 on the street | Lars Øivind Authen

Fujifilm X-T1 on the street |  Lars Øivind Authen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Unfortuneatly I was not able to go to the boxing matches this weekend and test the responsiveness of the X-T1. So, I got out on the streets instead. Together with the Fujifilm X-T1 I used the XF 23mm f/1.4 and XF 35mm f/1.4 lenses. The pictures are shot in raw, converted to Tiff's in Adobe Camera Raw using the new Fuji X camera profile Astia/Soft which pretty much like exactly the same as the in camera Astia Jpegs. The Tiffs were then imported into Lightroom and a bit of contrast and sharpness were added......

Adobe Camera RAW color profiles now match Fujifilm X's! | Lars Øivind Authen

Adobe Camera RAW color profiles now match Fujifilm X's! | Lars Øivind Authen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

There's been a lot of talk about the Fuji X cameras JPEG engine and the nice colors you get straight out of the camera. It's hard to recreate these colors when processing the raw files yourself. So a lot of people say they prefer the out of camera JPEG's and don't use raw. Especially there's been criticism and complaints about the Adobe Lightroom/Adobe Camera raw engine.  Well it seems like Fujifilm and Adobe has gotten their act together and come up with a solution , at least when it comes to the getting the right colors, and recreating in Lightroom/ACR the look the camera make for its JPEGS. Take a look at these shots below. They are JPEG created in Adobe Camera Raw using the Astia camera profile, and then the same picture as JPEG straight out of the camera with the Astia profile chosen in-cam.......

Finally some winter shots! Fujifilm X-Pro and X100s | Lakeview Man

Finally some winter shots! Fujifilm X-Pro and X100s | Lakeview Man | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Finally we got a little bit of snow, not enough to go skiing though. But it brightens up the landscape a little bit. Today it was -7 degrees celcius, but the cold wind from the sea made it feel much colder. My "model" for the day was my wife of course. We spent some time outdoors, at Mærrapanna near Fredrikstad. A nice place to go swimming in the summer... in the winter? Well, a cup of hot chocolate always helps...But it's a strange thought that in six months time we will go for a swin here. The sun is visible this south in Norway the whole winter, but it stays pretty low on the horizon. Today sunrise was at 9:02 and sunset was at 15:47. At the darkest day, 21. desember it was rising at 09:12 and setting at 15:17... Still, no reason to complain, go north in Norway and you won't see the sun at all in the winter. The first picture is from the Fujfilm X100s, and the rest is with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the XF 14mm lens.
