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?

Street Beats - Toronto with the X-Pro1 and Some Scary Mean Dude | Peter Evans

Street Beats - Toronto with the X-Pro1 and Some Scary Mean Dude | Peter Evans | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Toronto. City of Scott Pilgrim, craft beer, trams, music and skyscrapers. But was it going to be a city prime for street photography? Or one where the hapless Brit with a Fuji camera get the ever-loving crap beaten out of him? In planning my photography expedition to the rust-belt town of Bradford, PA, it seemed odd to me that the cheapest way of getting there wasn't to fly to Pittsburgh and coach it up but instead to fly over to Toronto in Canada and catch the Greyhound over the border. Once in Buffalo, it was simply a ninety mile road trip south. Not that I was complaining about getting the chance to see Toronto. I'd been a little in awe of it ever since that wonderful film Scott Pilgrim. It's a big city and getting bigger, and if you go and catch a film set in New York, chances are its actually filmed in Toronto. But I didn't have long there; a mere few days to hang out with a friend, drink some fine beer and go walking the streets, taking pictures. Unfortunately visiting Toronto didn't turn out as pleasant as I hoped. Indeed, it was there that photography, for the first time, got me a nasty beating...
