Passion Growing | Life with the Xpro-1 | Nathan Smith | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


It is kind of hard to make blog posts about photos that are from all different points in my life and from different events. Most of the time the photos all revolve around one event that has some consistency to them. The problem that I have ran into is that I am shooting a LOT with my X-Pro1 and not all the photos are from the same time. I should say that this is a good thing... no, make that a great thing! Before I started shooting with the x-series (x100 & X-Pro1) cameras, all my photos were taken with either my iPhone or my Nikons. I love shooting with them, but the Nikon always meant I was "working" when I lifted it to my eye and the iPhone could be a bit of a bugger to work with in some situations. The x-series cameras have filled a void that I didn't know needed filling. They have brought back passion and fun to shooting photos again for me, and more specifically allow me to capture daily life without feeling like I am "Working." Sometimes simply picking up a camera is a chore and takes away from the thrill of capturing the mood or moment that you want. They can be big, clunky, and just more then was worth dealing with. Now, between my iPhone and x-series cams I don't feel like that much any more. That leads back to all the random images I am getting. My X-Pro1 has been at the ready since I got it, which has lead to the random snaps. While the cohesion is not in the images themselves, there is cohesion in the gear that I am using to capture my daily life and in my growing passion for my new gear.

Sensor Crop Factors and Equivalence | Nasim Mansurov

Sensor Crop Factors and Equivalence | Nasim Mansurov | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

The subject of sensor crop factors and equivalence has become rather controversial between photographers, sparking heated debates on photography sites and forums. So much has been posted on this topic, that it almost feels redundant to write about it again. Sadly, with all the great and not-so-great information out there on equivalence, many photographers are only left more puzzled and confused. Thanks to so many different formats available today, including 1″/CX, Micro Four Thirds, APS-C, 35mm/Full Frame, Medium Format (in different sizes), photographers are comparing these systems by calculating their equivalent focal lengths, apertures, depth of field, camera to subject distances, hyperfocal distances and other technical jargon, to prove the inferiority or the superiority of one system over another. In this article, I want to bring up some of these points and express my subjective opinion on the matter. Recognizing that this topic is one of the never-ending debates with strong arguments from all sides, I do realize that some of our readers may disagree with my statements and arguments. So if you do disagree with what I say, please provide your opinion in a civilized manner in the comments section below. Before we get started, let’s first go over some of the history of sensor formats to get a better understanding of the past events and to be able to digest the material that will follow more easily......
