Diopters for the Fuji X-Pro1 | The Online Photographer

Diopters for the Fuji X-Pro1 | The Online Photographer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Several readers have mentioned the Fuji X-Pro1's lack of built-in diopter correction. A commenter named peter [sic—I always reproduce commenter names just as they come in] mentioned this morning that Nikon FM-style diopters fit the Fuji's eyepiece. That's fortunate, because those are the most common aftermarket diopters (well, they're not aftermarket, but they might as well be), and they're widely available. At B&H Photo, they'll be labeled "Diopter for FM3A, FM2, FM, FE2, FE & FA" and they cost $21.95 each. Admittedly, that doesn't help if you don't know what diopter you need, but maybe your optician could help you there. Or perhaps you have another camera on which the diopter correction dial or slider is marked with actual values....

 

Doug: "Some technical notes on dioptric correction lenses.

"Nikon, like Canon and maybe other manufacturers, labels their correction lenses by the total effect when mounted on a camera with the standard –1 diopter viewfinder, so a '–2' lens has an additional –1. There is no '–1' correction lens, because that'd be plain glass. There is, however, a '0' (Nikon seems to call it 'neutral') correction lens that has a +1 correction.


"Dioptric numbers for viewfinders are straightforward. They determine the apparent distance (for eye-focusing) of the viewscreen. They're numbered in –1/meters.


0/neutral: infinity
–0.5: 2 meters
–1 (standard viewfinder): 1 meter
–2: 1/2 meter
–3: 1/3 meter
+anything: Buzz Lightyear territory (infinity and beyond)

Why not just get the original Fuji diopter, it's only $14.95 from the same sellers?

Fujifilm at Photokina 2014! | Marc Horner

Fujifilm at Photokina 2014! | Marc Horner | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Last week we were at photokina, the world’s largest imaging fair, from Tuesday 16th to Sunday 21st September. It’s been a complete blast and this post will hopefully highlight the bits you missed if you couldn’t make it to Cologne this year. Our booth was big. It was made up with lots of different sections covering many different areas of our business, all with the same common goal – helping people with photography. Some were printed on FUJIFLEX Crystal Archive Printing Material and others on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Digital Paper but they were all amazingly good to look at. We’ve combined our X series cameras with many years’ experience of printing and finally the creativity of real users of our cameras to create a truly awe inspiring array of beautiful prints. Many visitors to the stand told us that they thought these were the best prints on display at the show.........

WCL-X100 & TCL-X100 for Fujifilm X100 and X100S & X100T | Derek Clark

WCL-X100 & TCL-X100 for Fujifilm X100 and X100S & X100T | Derek Clark | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

The Fujifilm X100 was a real game changer in my photography. I was in need of something small, light and above all else, great in low light. But I got more than I bargained for and the X100 took me on a journey and made me realize the direction I really wanted to go. I still have my original X100, but after including many other X cameras to my kit, I’ve recently came full circle and rekindled my love of the X100 with the addition of an X100S. Although I have five X series cameras and many lenses, I have had an urge lately to carry less….much less. So I’ve limited my personal photography to the X100S (although not exclusively). But although I love the 35mm field of view (full frame wise), Sometimes I can be restricted in zooming with my feet and then have to take another body and lens(s).....

Tokyo: Then and Now, Film vs Fuji x100s | Thomas Alan

Tokyo: Then and Now, Film vs Fuji x100s | Thomas Alan | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

In the summer of 1982 I was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, as a U.S. Marine. My unit trained in mainland a couple times per year, giving me the opportunity to visit Tokyo. It was this point in my life that I discovered photography, and purchased my first 35mm SLR camera, a Yashica if I remember right. The city was a never ending playground for photography, and I went through many rolls of film, learning to use my new toy. Looking back now I wish that I had taken more photos........

Review: Fujifilm XF56mmF1.2 R Lens | Krista Michaels

Review: Fujifilm XF56mmF1.2 R Lens | Krista Michaels | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Conclusion:


At the end of this quick photo shoot, I knew that Canon was a thing of the past in my life. Fujifilm has won my heart with the X-T1 mirrorless camera body and their superb XF56mmF1.2 R lens. I honestly, at this point, cannot see myself ever going back to a bulky DSLR. I just have no interest any longer, as I’m getting mind-blowing images with my Fuji, and it has, without question, reignited a major passion for the purity of photography that I haven’t felt since I first picked up a camera. I love the X-T1… and I LOVE this lens! Highly recommended! =)

Street Photography: 5 Dinge, die ich von William Eggleston gelernt habe | Feyzi Demirel | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Ich versuche mich fortlaufend fotografisch weiterzuentwickeln, und auf diesem Weg bin ich eigentlich ständig auf der Suche nach Inspiration. Eine solche Inspiration habe ich vor einigen Monaten erhalten, als ich zufällig auf einen Dokumentarfilm über den Fotografen William Eggleston gestoßen bin. Schande über mein Haupt, ich kannte ihn bis dato nicht, aber der Film hat mich sehr neugierig gemacht und ich habe mich weiter mit seiner Arbeit beschäftigt. Ich kann vorwegnehmen, dass die Arbeit von Eggleston einige meiner bisherigen fotografischen Denkmuster, insbesondere in Bezug auf Street Photography, geändert hat. Die Einflüsse Egglestons auf mich habe ich unten in 5 Punkten zusammengefasst.......
