PHNOM PENH – ONE DAY | Tim Kelsall

PHNOM PENH – ONE DAY | Tim Kelsall | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Earlier this year, my friend Rupert Abbott asked me if I wanted to mount an exhibition of my photos at Baitong, his restaurant and meeting space in Phnom Penh. I was a bit hesitant at first, because although I quite like my own photos, I don’t necessarily expect anyone else to like them, let alone buy them. However, he put me in touch with Matt Cuenca, an artist who runs the exhibition space at Baitong, and he inspired me to show some of my Phnom Penh street photography. But which shots should I show? I suggested to Matt that I send him a collection of my favourites and that he make a selection around a particular theme. The theme he came back with was ‘A day in the life of Phnom Penh’, one photo for every hour, dawn to dusk.....

The photos were shot with a Fuji X-Pro 1 and Olympus EM5. I wonder if any of you can tell which is which?

Antarctica with the X-E1 and E-M5 | Cyril Dhénin

Antarctica with the X-E1 and E-M5 | Cyril Dhénin | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Oyez, oyez, lecteurs, cette note est avant tout destinée aux geeks de la photo et notamment à mes connaissances de Fuji-x.com et du Forum Olympus France, deux sites que j’ai pas mal parcourus avant ce voyage. Si vous vous fichez comme de l’an 40 du matos photo, sautez ces lignes et jetez un coup d’oeil éventuellement aux photos de cette note (non publiées dans les notes précédentes). Comme promis donc, voici un retour d’expérience sur l’usage conjoint d’un Fuji E-X1 et d’un Olympus E-M5. L’idée ici n’est pas de dresser un comparatif « E-X1 versus E-M5 » car j’utilise ces appareils dans des situations bien distinctes, mais plutôt de souligner leurs atouts et contraintes dans ces contextes. Grosso modo, le Fuji est principalement utilisé avec le zoom 18-55 pour des photos de paysage tandis qu’un 75-300 (éq 150-600 donc) est vissé en permanence sur l’Olympus pour de l’animalier. Autre précision concernant les conditions de prise de vue : l’Antarctique, cela veut dire de la lumière. Beaucoup de lumière. Et, avec la glace, la mesure d’exposition par défaut des deux boîtiers est sans surprise à côté de la plaque. Pour retrouver la blancheur de la neige, le bleu éclatant de la glace, il faut donc surexposer, de 1 voire de 2 diaphs. Dans ce contexte, on apprécie de pouvoir afficher l’histogramme lors de la prise de vue (ce que les 2 appareils permettent) pour tirer à droite l’expo en évitant de brûler les hautes lumières. Un p’tit plus sur ce sujet avec l’Olympus et sa fonction de peaking des hautes lumières (les zones brûlées brillent lors de la prise de vue). A noter que cette fonction semble au menu du X100s. Donc, pas de souci avec l’Oly comme avec le Fuji pour corriger l’expo.....

Review: Fujifilm X-E1 | CNET

Review: Fujifilm X-E1 | CNET | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

The X-E1 is touted as an affordable alternative to the X-Pro1, but is it good enough to replace it? See how it performs.

 

The good:

Superb image quality and low-light performance; faster AF performance than X-Pro1; good ergonomics; versatile pop-up flash.


The bad:

Lack of a dedicated movie button; AF accuracy needs to be improved; pricier than competing models.

 

Following the success of the X-Pro1, Fujifilm has launched yet another mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (ILC), the Fujifilm X-E1. Slated as a more affordable model, this 16.3-megapixel, APS-C ILC now comes in a more compact form factor and sees the inclusion of a pop-up flash and an electronic viewfinder (instead of the hybrid viewfinder in the X-Pro1). Other improvements include a diopter adjustment control for bespectacled shutterbugs, as well as an improved autofocus (AF) algorithm that promises faster AF speeds. Capable of capturing 6 frames-per-second (fps) in burst mode shooting, the X-E1 also records 1080p full-HD videos at 24 fps. The Fujifilm X-E1 with XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS zoom lens now retails at S$2,099 in Singapore stores.

 

Conclusion

The Fujifilm X-E1 is a very capable performer and seems like a downsized version of the X-Pro1. It features the same image quality and handling as the X-Pro1 but at a lower price point. It also has other useful improvements such as faster autofocus and superb high-ISO noise performance that most enthusiasts would appreciate. Overall, we think that the X-E1 will appeal to those who've been holding out on the company's flagship mirrorless OIC due to its high price, as we as to serious enthusiasts who appreciate the mix of retro styling and manual controls.

Review: Fujifilm X Pro 1 | The Phoblographer

Review: Fujifilm X Pro 1 | The Phoblographer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

We’ve reviewed the Sony NEX 7 and the Olympus OMD EM5. While we’ve had a very in-depth first impressions review with the X Pro 1 before, we’ve now also finally finished the review of the extremely sought after camera. Before I go on, I need to make a transparent remark that I bought one with a 35mm f1.4 at a rate that I couldn’t turn down. And so far, I haven’t regretted the purchase.
