New York, 2012 | Kate Hailey | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Two weeks ago I boarded a plane east. A red eye, means hopefully a nap or three as you fly cross country, with the hopes of a safe landing and a productive fun-filled first day. And that for the most part is how it played out. My flight landed just before sunrise on Sunday morning, and before I knew it I was headed to Brooklyn. A couple of hours later the gal I was staying with and I headed towards the subway for a bit of a walk and an adventure. We ventured across the Brooklyn Bridge and through various parts of New York, above and under ground. I was there for a bit of work and as a result of this didn’t get out and about as much as I might have liked, but below are a variety of images captured along the way. It’s obviously taken a bit of time for me to create this post, some of these areas may well look different today, as a result of hurricane Sandy, which hit the New York area just a day after I left. If you can, please donate to the Red Cross or similar foundations to help provide relief for the families and individuals affected by events this past week...

The Fuji switch part II: Weddings… | Ben Jacobsen

The Fuji switch part II: Weddings… | Ben Jacobsen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Welcome to the second part of my fuji X-T1 camera review.  This post will focus primarily on how the X-T1 performs while shooting weddings.  Part I of the review (which focuses on landscape photography) is here.  I broke the review up into two sections because the two genres are quite different and I figured it’d be nice to have two shorter reviews that are more specific to what people might want to read.  First off, let me explain that I’m NOT a full time wedding photographer.  I never have been and don’t plan to be anytime soon.  I’ve been a second shooter for some friends of mine for the last three summers which is a role I really enjoy.  I’ve also had the pleasure of shooting a few weddings for close friends and I always bring my kit along to weddings I’m invited to (that’s where the above image came from).  Because I’m a second shooter I’ve been asked not to share any images from my most recent wedding until the primary photographers wrap up their blog post…   So this image won’t have a ton of images in it for a few more weeks.  For that I apologize but I figured I’d get my thoughts written down now while they’re fresh.

T-Minus Cologne | Patrick La Roque | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

We’re almost there: tomorrow at 18h55 we fly to Frankfurt. Then it’s a train to Cologne and the adventure begins. I’d love to say everything’s packed and ready…. Sure… Like that’s how life works with three young kids in the house. But we’re getting there. Below is THE KIT: X100S with the wide and tele converters. I debated taking the X-T1 for a few hours, just enough time to realize I was reverting to exactly the same reflexes the X100 had liberated me from three years ago. Which lens do I take? This? No, that? No. Way. The reason I have the converters is because Fujifilm Canada is loaning them to me along with the X100S itself — I still have the X100 and they were nice enough to let me borrow this one for the duration of our trip. As much as I still love the original X100 there’s been quite a jump in performance since its release and I’m rather used to this by now. The X-T1 does tend to spoil a guy. The old X100 is fine for quick outings but Cologne, Venice and Rome? I might've regretted my choice along the way (even though I know the images would’ve been great).......

LNDNWLK 2.0 – Taking online friendships offline | MirrorLessons | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Too many times have I heard the complaint that social media, despite the connotation of its name, has rendered us more antisocial than ever before. Locked away in our rooms, we chat with individuals who play no part in our actual day-to-day existence, tricking ourselves into believing that our social life is much richer than it actually is. This is why Mathieu and I are both firm believers that the “social media cycle” isn’t complete until online relationships are taken offline. As friendly as you can become with people via a social platform such as Twitter or Google+, there is nothing quite comparable to meeting someone face-to-face......


The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, the USA, Canada and the UK–eight nations enjoying one another’s company under one roof in the cosmopolitan city of London, all thanks to relationships being taken from the superficial online realm to the geniune offline world. This is the true definition of social media, and the spirit with which LNDNWLK came into being........

These are tentative steps, her first away from us; away from home. We spend a few hours moving in, exploring every nook and cranny, sharing her joy and excitement. But when the time comes for us leave... All that freedom becomes harder to bear. We walk away through tears and it's hard but we know it'll pass. A week from now, when we come back, she'll barely say hello — too busy with her newfound friends. Letting go is the toughest necessary thing we do......

Get Lost In Stockholm | Ivo Scholz

Get Lost In Stockholm | Ivo Scholz | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

For what it's worth, there seems to be something special about cities at the sea. They all have one more thing to offer I guess. I remember the feeling from other cities like San Francisco, Barcelona, Cagliari or Amsterdam. And now, the city alloted on 14 islands as well. The salty taste of the ocean was the first thing I sensed when arriving at Stockholm. It was hotter than the average August day. It felt good. Like a gorgeous summer day. The city was busy on that Friday afternoon. Almost like it couldn't wait for the weekend to start. It didn't take us long to feel the city. To sense its flow. Its people and its beauty. Stockholm seemed to be an open and friendly place. It smiled at us from the very beginning. Everyone was helpful and open........

My thoughts on the WR 18-135 lens | Jonas Jacobsson

My thoughts on the WR 18-135 lens | Jonas Jacobsson | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

As some of you know already I got the opportunity to test out the latest Fujinon lens for the X-series during my trip to Iceland. Fujifilm Nordicwas kind enough to send me a sample of this weather sealed lens for me to make use of during this trip and see what it could go for. Iceland is (in)famously known for having extremely changing weather so it ought to be a great chance to test how well the weather sealing worked along with my X-T1. Generally I prefer prime lenses and that’s what I work with 95% of the time, much because I don’t like to compromise with focal length or with quality. I like having to move to get the right framing, and it has taught me a lot during the years. And as we all are familiar with the pure photographic quality of the photos will always be better with a prime lens. That being said, there are obviously moments when it’s really convenient with a zoom lens. Especially for traveling. Being able to walk around with just one lens that covers a wide range of focal lengths is very practical, both from not having to change lenses or carrying heavy bags with complimentary lenses because you can’t decide on which one to go with......
