First date with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Pete Bridgwood

First date with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Pete Bridgwood | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


My first serious camera was a Russian made Zenith EM in the late 1970′s. It was a joy to use, completely manual in operation, delightfully tactile and it did what it said on the tin. Now, over 30 years later, using high-end Fuji Compact System Cameras (CSCs) has re-ignited a passion. Over the last 2 years, when not shooting fine-art landscapes I’ve enjoyed the occasional dalliance with street photography using the Fuji X100. This is a wonderful camera to use, a superb ‘carry around’, and the fixed focal length lens is ideally suited to street photography. Far from feeling restricted by having a fixed focal length lens, it is unexpectedly liberating to be forced into using a set focal length. For an old-hand like me who spent years wet-processing and working exclusively in black & white, the X100 is an epiphany. How refreshing to use a camera with manual selection of shutter speed and aperture using traditional dials, rather than having to suffer the modern distraction of interfacing with electronics. Of course, under the bonnet, there are all the advantages of modern electronics and digital alchemy; it’s just nicely hidden for most of the time. Couple this fantastic experience of image gathering with state of the art creative black & white processing algorithms found in Nik’s Silver Efex Pro, and you have a winner. Miles of enjoyment walking the streets, black & white creative heaven. Despite the life-changing qualities of the X100 for street-photography (it’s quite possibly still the finest street-photography camera available bar none), for other genres there are obvious advantages in having interchangeable lenses. When I first held a Fuji X-Pro1 I was smitten. This was a camera that surpassed the already amazing X100 in specification, with the important addition of interchangeable lenses. The X-Pro1 has an improved APS-C sized X-Trans sensor that mimics the structure of silver halide film and lacks an anti-alias filter to provide the sharpest possible results. Fuji have kept the hybrid viewfinder that allows switching between the more traditional optical or electronic function, similar to that found on the X100....

Six Months with the Fujifilm X-T1 | Mathieu Gasquet

Six Months with the Fujifilm X-T1 | Mathieu Gasquet | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

You have probably read about it. You may have a friend who bought one. You may have noticed it on the streets. You have most certainly seen one in a camera store window. The Fujifilm X-T1 is currently one of the most popular mirrorless cameras, and is the model that is persuading many people to leave their DSLRs, be they enthusiast or professional photographers. For the past six months, I have been using it in various situations to discover exactly why people have fallen head over heels for Fujifilm’s high-end model. I began using the X-T1 during a trip in April to Cinque Terre, Italy. The first aspects you notice about the design are its manual control dials inherited from SLR film cameras. (The X-T1 itself was inspired by the Fujica.) If you are familiar with film cameras, you most certainly already know this type of layout. If, like me, you mostly shoot digital, it is something you can learn to appreciate.....

Tokyo Salaryman Fuji X-Pro1 | Nicolas Lambert

Tokyo Salaryman Fuji X-Pro1 | Nicolas Lambert | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Le salaryman

Au Japon, ou plutôt à Tokyo on s’habille en costume noir pour aller travailler dans son entreprise. Ces hommes ont des horaires assez difficiles, debout très tôt et au lit très tard.


Série

Une série un peu contrastée ( au Japon il y a Moriyama donc ça peu passer ) sur mes rencontres de la journée.


Matériel

Toutes les photos ont été prises avec le Fuji X-Pro 1 comme objectifs j’ai utilisé le 35mm ainsi que le 18mm. Pour ce genre de traitement, un point and shoot ou un smartphone feraient l’affaire.


Traitement

Pas grand chose pour le traitement: simplement assez dur. J’ai amélioré mes images dans lightroom avant d’utiliser SilverEfex pour le passage au noir et blanc.
