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.

Fuji X-T1: Is it a better street camera than the X100T? | Mike Evans

Fuji X-T1: Is it a better street camera than the X100T? | Mike Evans | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Currently I'm putting Fuji's highly acclaimed X-T1 through its paces. It came with the standard 18-55 zoom but I have managed to borrow a remarkable little pancake, the 27mm f/2.8. I reckon it is just about the bee's knees when it comes to street photography. My first question, though, is how this combination compares with the lionised X100/S/T, the camera that started Fuji on to X series road in 2010. It seems incredible now that we have seen the X cameras spawn like crazy from such a simple beginning. But, more important, Fuji has launched perhaps the most comprehensive array of pro-quality lenses ever seen in such a short period. The X100 range with its 35mm-equivalent fixed focal length and ingenious hybrid viewfinder has rightly won its place high on the list of streettog desirables. This little Leica M3 lookalike is probably the most popular go-to camera for street enthusiasts......

Fujifilm X-T1 and Olympus 60/1,5 Pen F lens | Ohm Image

Fujifilm X-T1 and Olympus 60/1,5 Pen F lens | Ohm Image | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Why it is that I've been using Olympus Pen F lenses on my wife's Fujifilm X-T1 is a subject for later: and a proper review. For now, it's enough to say I'm digging the experience. Very much. In fact, the above lens (horribly taken in the minute or so between shooting an Astell&Kern AK240 and Sony ZX1 for Mac Audio - you can even see its block -, it is a disgrace), hasn't left the camera. Neither has the slimline Kipon PEN-FX adapter.  The 60/1,5 on the APS-C X-T1 works out pretty well like a 90/2,25 on film, or FF 35mm digital. And 90mm is, and always has been, a favourite of mine. In fact, I was chatting lenses with an audiophile mate of mine. He digs lenses in the ~35mm range on APS-C, or ~50mm on FF. I told him that if I had to choose only two lenses, it would be something around 28mm - 30mm on film on the wide end, and 90mm on the long end. 

Thank you half-frame!.......

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........
