More on the Fuji 18-55mm zoom lens | Gene Lowinger | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


After reviewing my images from my outing on the streets of New York, one thing is very clear to me. I need more time with this lens to get my zoom/longer focal length chops back to snuff.

Drat it! I guess I'll just have to go out and shoot a lot more. Just to recap what I said yesterday: the focus speed is very good at 18mm and 35mm but a little slower (not by a big factor) at 55mm, the IOS (image stabilization) works extraordinarily well so that I can hand hold at 1/30th second and get good shots, I miss not having the aperture indications on the aperture ring but as this is a variable aperture lens (f2.8-f4) those indications would be meaningless, and the lens hood mounting leaves something to be desired in terms of a secure fit on the front of the lens.

The images below were shot RAW, processed minimally in Lightroom and then put through my workflow with NIK filters. The first two shots below were at a focal length of 18mm, f6.4, and 1/125th second. Since I keep my camera set on auto ISO it varies - the first shot was at ISO 5000 and the second at ISO 6400. In my film days an ISO of 6400 would have resulted in practically no definition in the small details. The first NIK processing is with Dfine to manage the contrast noise, then into Color Efex Pro 4 to optimize the color contrast with my special (wink wink) tweaks, and lastly into Silver Efex Pro 2 for the conversion also with my special (wink wink wink) tweaks.

In the first two images, the woman on the right was quite striking looking (nothing gets my camera finger more twitchy than a pretty lady) and yet so sad.....

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.
