Fujifilm shows-off zoom lens on X-Pro1 and denies XF lenses allow full frame | Digital Photography Review

Fujifilm shows-off zoom lens on X-Pro1 and denies XF lenses allow full frame | Digital Photography Review | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
FUJIFILM has been showing off the way its X-Pro1's hybrid viewfinder will behave when used with zoom lenses - which we demonstrate in a video. It has also moved to quell suggestions that its XF lenses are ready for a full-frame X-mount camera. 'It would not work - XF lenses could not be used with a full-frame sensor,' said Hiroshi Kawahara, operations manager of Fujifilm's product planning division. He also drew our attention to the way X-Pro1 users will be able to use the hybrid viewfinder with zoom lenses - a feature that will be added in a forthcoming firmware update.

Initially it was unclear whether the X-Pro1 would be able to use its hybrid viewfinder with a zoom, or whether it would be restricted to using its electronic viewfinder mode. The good news is that it's not only is it possible, but its implementation is rather elegant.

Zooming the lens causes the viewfinder frame lines to smoothly contract, to represent the new field of view. The clever feature comes when you get to longer focal lengths. As with other long lenses, to avoid the framelines taking up a tiny section of the finder, holding the VF mode selection lever for 2 seconds engages the viewfinder's magnifying lens - giving a larger view of the subject and framing.

As you zoom out, once your view becomes wider than the magnified viewfinder allows, warning arrows appear at the corners of the finder to stress that you aren't seeing the whole frame. Holding the VF mode lever again reverts to the unmagnified view.

This video, shot on the Fujifilm stand at Photokina, shows the viewfinder as the lens is zoomed. At the full extent of the zoom, the magnified view is engaged. The lens is then zoomed-out again, showing the out-of-bound warning arrows at the corner of the finder.

Needed a
machine to always walk with me in my day to day outside the agency, in addition to the iPhone. I've tried hundreds of "small" machines and gave me no professional feeling or image quality worthy of investing money. Recently a friend of mine passed me for the new Fuji X-T1 hand and it was love at first sight! The capabilities of small machine are impressive and the image quality it produces is very very good. I will not describe here the characteristics of it because it can see on specialty websites. I leave here some pictures I took these few days since I have....

How to Reduce Noise with Photo Ninja | Digital Photography School

How to Reduce Noise with Photo Ninja | Digital Photography School | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Reducing noise in a digital photo is a hot topic, particularly for photographers who frequently shoot at high ISOs. Even if you’re not a typical low light shooter, the temptation may arise with some of the newer digital cameras that offer incredibly high ISO speeds which still produce pretty pleasing images, even with noise. There are many factors that can produce noise in your images, and there are many ways to reduce or sometimes even avoid noise all together. This article in particular will highlight one post-processing trick to reduce noise using a third party plugin called Photo Ninja. Made by the folks over at PictureCode, Photo Ninja is a RAW converter for both Windows and Mac OS X computers. It uses a built-in browser to open most RAW file formats, as well as JPEG and TIFF images. It also integrates well with many photo browsing and editing applications including Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. The plugin has been around since 2003 when it was launched under the name Noise Ninja. Today, the current product has expanded and is now known as Photo Ninja,  and it offers a host of editing adjustments with its signature Noise Ninja 3.0 included........

Street Photo of the week by Robert Doisneau | Streethunters

Street Photo of the week by Robert Doisneau | Streethunters | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Robert Doisneau is one of the most talented and amazing photographers that has ever lived. Period. He was an active Street Photographer for more than 60 years, more than most others and his work depicts the evolution of the modern world from the early 1930s all the way up until the end of the 20th century, in the mid 1990s. His photographs of France are iconic, they are epic. You have certainly seen one or more of them in your lifetime even if you don’t know that he was the photographer that made the shot. He was creative, innovative, funny, brave and daring. He would take the photo of a funny situation just as passionately as he would photograph the fighters of the French resistance in the barricades during WWII. He would capture the magic, playful moments of children, just as well as the sensational look of a beautiful woman. He would be there to snap the moment, to forever record scenes that are now part of European Modern History......
