A Month in Italy with the Fuji X-T1 - What Worked and What Didn't | Dave Burns

A Month in Italy with the Fuji X-T1 - What Worked and What Didn't | Dave Burns | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

In my last post I talked about what photo gear I brought to Italy for one month and the reasons behind those plans. So how did reality compare to expectations? Which gear earned another trip and what won’t make the cut next time? The good news is that the planning paid off and most things worked very well. There were a couple exceptions though and an uncertainty that might seem familiar/tiresome to some Fuji fans. Let’s take a look........

What's in the Bag - Italy for a Month | Dave Burns

What's in the Bag - Italy for a Month | Dave Burns | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

This last May, I was lucky enough to spend my honeymoon in Italy. I couldn’t go on a trip of this scale without some serious photography (luckily my wife already knew this) so I put a lot of thought into what gear I wanted to bring. I’ve been enjoying my Fuji X-T1 lately and, although the last trip I did of this length was with my full-frame Canon gear, this time I wanted to bring a much lighter kit. So what gear did I bring to Italy? The problem is, I’m a lazy photographer and changing lenses is sometimes a deterrent from shooting. In addition, my instincts from my African photo safaris mean I’m nervous unless I have backups. So even though I feel like I packed light, it’s all relative and some of my more hardcore street photographer friends will raise an eyebrow at my kit. I decided to bring two Fuji X-T1s (one mine, one rented from LensProToGo), each with a lens attached. I then brought a couple of other lenses to fill out my range...

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........

A walk in Florence - Fuji X -M1 | Donato Chirulli

A walk in Florence - Fuji X -M1 | Donato Chirulli | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


This is not a thorough test (to this is focusing our Max Angeloni), but only the photo-chronicle of a day spent in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I took the opportunity of a short trip to Florence to take pictures freely with the Fuji X-M1, with only the zoom supplied in kit: XC 16-50 mm. A day along the streets of Florence, not only the most classic and well-known, but also some more intimateand popular glimpse, off the beaten more traditional. All images were taken in Jpeg, directly in B/W and then processed using Photoshop. The Fuji X-M1 proved to be a light and compact , with a zoom that solves most photographic situations, thanks to the minimum focal length of 24mm (equivalent in 24X36 format)....

Montepulciano, Italy on the Fuji X-E1 | Rebecca Lily

Montepulciano, Italy on the Fuji X-E1 | Rebecca Lily | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Italy has a way of becoming part of you. I feel that I carry little pieces of it with me everywhere I go, and undoubtedly, I am spoiled forever when it comes to pizza, pasta, and a good latte macchiato. These images were all shot on my trusty little digital, the Fuji X-E1 with the Fujinon 35mm f/1.4 lens. I experimented a bit here with a black and white post process. I was never much of a black and white person, but it grows on me lately. This Sunday Johnny and I leave for a week in Paris, and we plan to shoot a lot of film – both black and white, and color. I can’t believe that this little Indiana girl will be photographing the Eiffel Tower soon, and sipping café by the Seine .....

We spent three weeks in Tuscany afterwards, first in Poppi and then in the beautiful Val d’Orcia valley near Siena. During our stay we visited many places, one of my favorite ones being Montepulciano. Since we went to Poppi for the first time, we go to the same little cafe to enjoy a Latte Macchiato almost every morning. We were both very excited to go back. Not only for the best coffee in town but also for the time spent there. While we enjoyed breakfast we often saw the most interesting and storytelling characters and situations. Old men meeting there presumably for their entire lifetime, cracking jokes and picking on each other. Young children being lost in thoughts while enjoying a treat and a beautiful and endearing temperament of a culture so different from our own and yet so sincere and easy to relate to. I like it so much when life is simple and good. I brought my Fuji X-Pro1, Leica MP and Hasselblad on this trip, but I shot a lot more film this time with the Hasselblad and the Leica. I had my X-Pro1 with me everywhere when I didn’t bring any of the other cameras and therefore I can already share a few digital images while I am waiting on the film scans. It was interesting to see how different the flavor of these photographs turned out, especially compared to the pictures from France......

Poppi, Italy. 2013. | Rebecca Lily | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


We just arrived home from our trip a few days ago, and are getting settled back in to our routine and everyday life. After a month of exploring Italy and seeing some of the most beautiful places on earth (Lake Como and Val D’Orcia), I found it difficult to return to Ireland. I felt very connected to Italy and thrived on the Mediterranean diet, the abundant sunshine and beautiful weather, and the live-and-let-live mentality there. For me, funny as it might sound, it felt like leaving home not coming back to it. But I know I am part gypsy and probably not very normal with that.

I shot mostly film on our trip, all medium format on my Contax 645. It’s currently on its way to Richard Photo Lab in California for developing. I’m so excited to see our results in a couple of weeks and to be able to relive the wonderful memories Johnny and I made over this month of travel together. In the meantime, I wanted to share a few digital images I took with my Fuji X-E1. I went out twice with the Fuji, once to Poppi and once to Montepulciano. It’s a great little travel camera: compact, lightweight, and unobtrusive (a nice counterbalance for the Contax!). And I love the colors it produces. I’m really happy I brought it to shoot along with film......

The Exhibition at the old Hospital and the Zeiss Touit 12mm for X-Pro1 | David Brommer

The Exhibition at the old Hospital and the Zeiss Touit 12mm for X-Pro1 | David Brommer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I’ll be honest, I’m not that much of a super wide guy. My preferred focal length is just a little wider than normal view. The 28mm to 35mm is pretty perfect for me. Back in May, I got two lenses from Zeiss to try out, the 35 1.8 and 12mm 2.8 Touit lenses. I walked with the 35 1.8 around NYC for a few weeks testing the lens before I passed it on to Gabe from Ruinism and wrote about it on my “Part 1” of the Zeiss Touit tests which can be found here in this earlier blog. I then began to shoot with the 12mm and actually had trouble making images I was excited about. It wasn’t that the gorgeous lens was anything less than a great optic, it was I who had issue with the lens. For those who follow my blog, its not just words, the images have to back up what I’m saying. The environments that I was testing the lens in were just not coexisting and the lens wasn’t working for me. Well, all that changed yesterday when I took the 12mm and mounted it on my trusty Fujifilm X-Pro1 with the aim of checking out some exhibitions at the Cortona On the Move Photo Festival in Italy. All of the images are shot using the 12mm 2.8 at ISO Auto 1600, color shots are Velvia Film Sim Mode unless I chose the B&W Y mode (I used film sim bracketing so I was able to capture it all).....

very nice contrast to the images of Italy you're used to seeing... I remember crossing over from Switzerland with my friend and him pointing out how rundown Italy was in comaprison

Back in the Spring I visited Italy with the family. It was my first big trip DSLR-free, traveling just with the Fuji X-T1 and X100s. It was so pleasant not lugging around heavy gear all trip. I didn’t get hardly any dedicated photography time this trip, with most images taken quickly on the go. A lot of the street photography images were even shot “from the hip”. We visited Venice, Montepulciano (and some nearby Tuscan countryside), and Rome. The trip was too short by half, but it whet the appetite and I anxiously await visiting the country again in the future.......
