Bouncing the Flash - Fuji XE1 | Amy Medina on Digital Photography Review

Bouncing the Flash - Fuji XE1 | Amy Medina on Digital Photography Review | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Yes, it's true... you can bounce the little flip up flash on the XE1. The way it pops up seems to lend itself to easily holding it with a finger, pointed at the ceiling... and this is a very welcomed thing. I'm not normally a flash shooter, AT ALL... so I don't even know the best settings for inside flash shots. I just took these quick to show the difference.

 

NOTE: Sorry about the subject - I didn't have a model that would sit still otherwise. ALSO these are straight out of the camera. If the white balance seems a little "cool" it's because the ceiling in this room is painted a light but stylish shade of teal blue.

Hands-on: Fujifilm X100T review: New viewfinder features make for best X100 model yet | Pocket-lint | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

If you're unfamiliar with the X100 series then get prepared to geek out. If you already know all about it then get prepared to be blown away by the Fujifilm X100T - because it's the best X100 model yet. The reason is simple: the X100T brings an updated viewfinder, complete with parallax correction in manual focus and what the company is calling an "electronic rangefinder" feature too. And it's utterly brilliant. In terms of build, the X100T is the same fine example of craftsmanship as the previous X100S and original X100 models. There's not much we can say to better our previous thoughts on that - this silver-colour, magnesium alloy construction is solid in both visual and physical terms. If, that is, you like retro styling and the old school of thought when shooting, because the X100T has manual control dials and a fixed 23mm (which is a 35mm equivalent) f/2.0 aperture lens. No zoom to be found here. That's a staple of the X100 series though and it restricts working practice in a kind of beautiful way. The quality is the same tried and tested optical performance as in its predecessors, as is the APS-C sized 16-megapixel X-Trans II CMOS sensor......

The Fuji switch part II: Weddings… | Ben Jacobsen

The Fuji switch part II: Weddings… | Ben Jacobsen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Welcome to the second part of my fuji X-T1 camera review.  This post will focus primarily on how the X-T1 performs while shooting weddings.  Part I of the review (which focuses on landscape photography) is here.  I broke the review up into two sections because the two genres are quite different and I figured it’d be nice to have two shorter reviews that are more specific to what people might want to read.  First off, let me explain that I’m NOT a full time wedding photographer.  I never have been and don’t plan to be anytime soon.  I’ve been a second shooter for some friends of mine for the last three summers which is a role I really enjoy.  I’ve also had the pleasure of shooting a few weddings for close friends and I always bring my kit along to weddings I’m invited to (that’s where the above image came from).  Because I’m a second shooter I’ve been asked not to share any images from my most recent wedding until the primary photographers wrap up their blog post…   So this image won’t have a ton of images in it for a few more weeks.  For that I apologize but I figured I’d get my thoughts written down now while they’re fresh.

T-Minus Cologne | Patrick La Roque

T-Minus Cologne | Patrick La Roque | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

We’re almost there: tomorrow at 18h55 we fly to Frankfurt. Then it’s a train to Cologne and the adventure begins. I’d love to say everything’s packed and ready…. Sure… Like that’s how life works with three young kids in the house. But we’re getting there. Below is THE KIT: X100S with the wide and tele converters. I debated taking the X-T1 for a few hours, just enough time to realize I was reverting to exactly the same reflexes the X100 had liberated me from three years ago. Which lens do I take? This? No, that? No. Way. The reason I have the converters is because Fujifilm Canada is loaning them to me along with the X100S itself — I still have the X100 and they were nice enough to let me borrow this one for the duration of our trip. As much as I still love the original X100 there’s been quite a jump in performance since its release and I’m rather used to this by now. The X-T1 does tend to spoil a guy. The old X100 is fine for quick outings but Cologne, Venice and Rome? I might've regretted my choice along the way (even though I know the images would’ve been great).......

LNDNWLK 2.0 – Taking online friendships offline | MirrorLessons

LNDNWLK 2.0 – Taking online friendships offline | MirrorLessons | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Too many times have I heard the complaint that social media, despite the connotation of its name, has rendered us more antisocial than ever before. Locked away in our rooms, we chat with individuals who play no part in our actual day-to-day existence, tricking ourselves into believing that our social life is much richer than it actually is. This is why Mathieu and I are both firm believers that the “social media cycle” isn’t complete until online relationships are taken offline. As friendly as you can become with people via a social platform such as Twitter or Google+, there is nothing quite comparable to meeting someone face-to-face......


The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, the USA, Canada and the UK–eight nations enjoying one another’s company under one roof in the cosmopolitan city of London, all thanks to relationships being taken from the superficial online realm to the geniune offline world. This is the true definition of social media, and the spirit with which LNDNWLK came into being........

These are tentative steps, her first away from us; away from home. We spend a few hours moving in, exploring every nook and cranny, sharing her joy and excitement. But when the time comes for us leave... All that freedom becomes harder to bear. We walk away through tears and it's hard but we know it'll pass. A week from now, when we come back, she'll barely say hello — too busy with her newfound friends. Letting go is the toughest necessary thing we do......

Get Lost In Stockholm | Ivo Scholz

Get Lost In Stockholm | Ivo Scholz | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

For what it's worth, there seems to be something special about cities at the sea. They all have one more thing to offer I guess. I remember the feeling from other cities like San Francisco, Barcelona, Cagliari or Amsterdam. And now, the city alloted on 14 islands as well. The salty taste of the ocean was the first thing I sensed when arriving at Stockholm. It was hotter than the average August day. It felt good. Like a gorgeous summer day. The city was busy on that Friday afternoon. Almost like it couldn't wait for the weekend to start. It didn't take us long to feel the city. To sense its flow. Its people and its beauty. Stockholm seemed to be an open and friendly place. It smiled at us from the very beginning. Everyone was helpful and open........
