GEARTALK: THE FUJI X-E1 | Bondan Ismono

GEARTALK: THE FUJI X-E1 | Bondan Ismono | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


The Fuji X-Series, especially the X-Pro1 and the X-E1 with their X-Trans Sensors, are known for their excellent image quality. I will not get into technical details here, there are a lot of good reviews on the net.

I bought the Fuji X-E1 especially for the image quality and it’s formfactor. I have the Fuji S5 Pro and I always loved that camera for it’s image quality. On jobs I started using my Nikon more. And for the everyday and “always with me” camera a DSLR is just to big for my (lazy) taste. That’s where the X-E1 fits perfectly. Of course I have to admit, that the look of the X-E1 was also a reason to buy it. That might all sound very promising, but not everything is well of course. The X-E1 is not the fastest and most reliable when it comes down to autofocusing. Especially in not so perfect light situations (this can even just be a room with a fairly bright desklamp) the X-E1 starts to hunt a little bit. This is a result of the contrast detection auto focus. To help autofocus you can tilt the camera a little bit, because diagonal or vertical lines help focusing quicker. As a DSLR user the way the shutter release button works is quite annoying. Half pressing the button will autofocus, and a full press will take a picture of course. On a DSLR you can keep half pressing and it will save your focus. On the X-E1 this does not “count”. Even though you’ve kept half pressing the button, the X-E1 will focus again when full pressing the button.

In conclusion
I have to say that I love this camera so far. Besides the autofocus issues the camera is a joy to operate and the images are incredible. I only have been using this camera for only a week now, but I will write a follow up in a month or so.

Fuji X-T1: Is it a better street camera than the X100T? | Mike Evans

Fuji X-T1: Is it a better street camera than the X100T? | Mike Evans | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Currently I'm putting Fuji's highly acclaimed X-T1 through its paces. It came with the standard 18-55 zoom but I have managed to borrow a remarkable little pancake, the 27mm f/2.8. I reckon it is just about the bee's knees when it comes to street photography. My first question, though, is how this combination compares with the lionised X100/S/T, the camera that started Fuji on to X series road in 2010. It seems incredible now that we have seen the X cameras spawn like crazy from such a simple beginning. But, more important, Fuji has launched perhaps the most comprehensive array of pro-quality lenses ever seen in such a short period. The X100 range with its 35mm-equivalent fixed focal length and ingenious hybrid viewfinder has rightly won its place high on the list of streettog desirables. This little Leica M3 lookalike is probably the most popular go-to camera for street enthusiasts......

Fujifilm X-T1 and Olympus 60/1,5 Pen F lens | Ohm Image

Fujifilm X-T1 and Olympus 60/1,5 Pen F lens | Ohm Image | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Why it is that I've been using Olympus Pen F lenses on my wife's Fujifilm X-T1 is a subject for later: and a proper review. For now, it's enough to say I'm digging the experience. Very much. In fact, the above lens (horribly taken in the minute or so between shooting an Astell&Kern AK240 and Sony ZX1 for Mac Audio - you can even see its block -, it is a disgrace), hasn't left the camera. Neither has the slimline Kipon PEN-FX adapter.  The 60/1,5 on the APS-C X-T1 works out pretty well like a 90/2,25 on film, or FF 35mm digital. And 90mm is, and always has been, a favourite of mine. In fact, I was chatting lenses with an audiophile mate of mine. He digs lenses in the ~35mm range on APS-C, or ~50mm on FF. I told him that if I had to choose only two lenses, it would be something around 28mm - 30mm on film on the wide end, and 90mm on the long end. 

Thank you half-frame!.......

Needed a
machine to always walk with me in my day to day outside the agency, in addition to the iPhone. I've tried hundreds of "small" machines and gave me no professional feeling or image quality worthy of investing money. Recently a friend of mine passed me for the new Fuji X-T1 hand and it was love at first sight! The capabilities of small machine are impressive and the image quality it produces is very very good. I will not describe here the characteristics of it because it can see on specialty websites. I leave here some pictures I took these few days since I have....

How to Reduce Noise with Photo Ninja | Digital Photography School

How to Reduce Noise with Photo Ninja | Digital Photography School | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Reducing noise in a digital photo is a hot topic, particularly for photographers who frequently shoot at high ISOs. Even if you’re not a typical low light shooter, the temptation may arise with some of the newer digital cameras that offer incredibly high ISO speeds which still produce pretty pleasing images, even with noise. There are many factors that can produce noise in your images, and there are many ways to reduce or sometimes even avoid noise all together. This article in particular will highlight one post-processing trick to reduce noise using a third party plugin called Photo Ninja. Made by the folks over at PictureCode, Photo Ninja is a RAW converter for both Windows and Mac OS X computers. It uses a built-in browser to open most RAW file formats, as well as JPEG and TIFF images. It also integrates well with many photo browsing and editing applications including Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. The plugin has been around since 2003 when it was launched under the name Noise Ninja. Today, the current product has expanded and is now known as Photo Ninja,  and it offers a host of editing adjustments with its signature Noise Ninja 3.0 included........
