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?

Welcome to Classic Chrome | Olaf Sztaba

Welcome to Classic Chrome | Olaf Sztaba | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Along with the rise of Instagram and iPhone photography, there has been a flood of filters and film simulations. Unfortunately, the majority of these tools are formulated very poorly and the results can be quite grotesque. When I heard that Fujifilm is working on a new film simulation, Classic Chrome, I was intrigued. After all, Fuji has been known for its expertise in film and the JPEGs coming out of the X-series cameras have been one of the best in the industry. The latest Fuji X100T and Fuji X-T1 Graphite came with Classic Chrome. Some photographers who got their hands on these cameras posted some photos bearing the Classic Chrome look and we really liked what we saw. Those who practise street, documentary photography or fine art photography should be very pleased with this modern take on the Kodachrome-like look. The colours are subtle and slightly suppressed but pleasing and natural to the eye. Although we haven’t had a chance to shoot with the Fuji X100T or Graphite X-T1, the recent Lightroom 5.7 update offers an opportunity to paint with light – Classic Chrome style. We couldn’t resist applying this new colour palette to some chosen photos.....

A Review of the Fuji XF 14mm 2.8 | Jason Row

A Review of the Fuji XF 14mm 2.8 | Jason Row | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
Conclusion

When moving to the Fuji X series from Nikon, one of my biggest concerns was whether there really was a replacement for my beloved 14-24mm. Whilst not a direct replacement as it is a prime lens, the XF14mm f2.8 has become even more of to go lens than the Nikon. Its compact size, outstanding image quality but most of all that beautiful aperture ring, go towards making this one of the best lenses I have ever owned.....
