SOS Children's Villages | p2 - Davao | Derek Clark | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I used the time during the flight from Cebu to Davao to select and edit some of the photos I had shot. I was happy with the results, but decided to do more portraits of the children of SOS Davao. There's a lot going on in the eyes of these kids and I needed to capture as much as possible. Due to my schedule, I could only visit on a school day, so I wasn't able to arrive as early as I would have liked. I shot around the village for a while, just wandering and talking to the kids doing their chores or playing outside. Knocking on doors and going inside, hoping to find a fan to cool down. But it was after school and I knew I had limited time before the light went. I shot mostly outside and started to pick up a posse of the younger kids as I moved around, a few of them demanding I take their photo every minute or two (which I did). A small boy climbed on to my camera bag (which was hanging on my shoulder) and I had no chance of persuading him otherwise. It was hot and humid and the extra weight reminded me how a DSLR kid would have felt and I was thankful for my small Fuji X cameras. I held out as long as possible, but in the end my shoulder faded as fast as the light. I knew I had enough, but I wished I could have had one more day...at least.....

Fujifilm favorites, 2013 | Aaron Courter

Fujifilm favorites, 2013 | Aaron Courter | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I am really lucky to do what I do for a living and I take it seriouslyl.  A huge risk of creating a business out of a passion is the possibility of repetition or even worse, burn out.  One way that I challenged myself this year was to add a new camera to my bag.  Anyone who has followed my personal work of daily life with my kids knows how much I adore the Fujifilm X Series of cameras, including the X100S and X-Pro1.  I am not a gear-obsessive photographer and I prefer to be as minimalist as possible, but these cameras creates for me an intimate documentary experience that just doesn’t feel the same as a typical DSLR.  As I approach the end of the 2013 season of weddings, gathering and reviewing some of my favorite images, I thought I’d showcase just a few that make me even more excited about being a photographer.....

House in France with the Fujifilm X-E1 | Jeroen Rommen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


These pictures are taken on our vacation to France this year. To travel light I used the Fujifilm X-E1 with the XF35mm F1.4 R and the XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS lenses. Most of the pictures are shot in JPG and a few post processed in Lightroom 4.0 ....

30 Minutes With The New Fujifilm 23mm f1.4 | David George Brommer

30 Minutes With The New Fujifilm 23mm f1.4 | David George Brommer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Since this lens was announced I have begged and cajoled my Fujifilm contact for a test ride to no avail.  Man, I have known better crack dealers that take better care of their clients! Evidently there was a glass gag order to keep the lens under wraps until they could provide the blogosphere at large with samples. Bah I say! I have had to be content with my 12mm 2.8, 18 f2.0, and the awesome 35mm 1.4. Now if you do the focal conversion this makes my collection of lenses the trifecta of an 18mm, 28mm and 50mm. What’s missing? Well my favorite focal length is 35mm. I little bit wider than the eye perceives, yet extremely natural. While I got used to the 18mm it was always just a tad too wide for tastes. I yearned for the 23 mm focal length.....

The Fujifilml X-Pro 1 VS the big-ass SLR | Ohm-Image

The Fujifilml X-Pro 1 VS the big-ass SLR | Ohm-Image | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I'm a Fujifilm X-Pro 1 user. I'm also a Canon P and Olympus Trip 35 user. The Olumpus really is small. The Canon is about the same size as the Fujifilm. The mantra of today' Fujifilm supporter is a rather sloppy orgy SLR hate. Why? The hump. And the size. Perhaps the crowd haven't used an SLR camera before. The Fujifilm X-Pro 1 happens to be the same size as my Nikon FE, an SLR camera- in fact, an SLR camera that was never considered small. Yes, the mounting flanges are quite different. And yes the FE humps a bit. But the FE's shoulder height is lower than the X-Pro 1's even with buttons sprigging from the top. Minus the mounting flange, the body is also thinner. And again, the FE was never considered a small SLR camera. So what do Fujifilm fans mean when they think 'SLR'? The above image illustrates exactly what is conjured up in their forgetful brains. Today's digital SLRs are massive. Even Nikon's smallest D3000 is bigger than the FE and X-Pro 1. The D800 is the FE's modern analogue in terms of equivalent target market, build quality among other things. The trend started after Japanese makers started putting electronics into every nook and cranny they could......

Fujifilm X100s | Not only Street Photography | Dennis Berti

Fujifilm X100s | Not only Street Photography | Dennis Berti | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I’m incredibly happy with my Fujifilm X100s, i think is the best carry-on mirrorless camera in the market, super light, silent and with this vintage style that i really love. There are many options in the market available for amateurs and professionals photographers, everyone should find the perfect match according his budget and needs. For what i was looking, this camera is perfect. I always use the optical viewfinder (OVF) except when i’m very close to the subject and i obviously switch to the electronic view finder (EVF) to avoid the parallax error. This camera fits in my pocket and i perfectly carry it with me all day long. Since i decided to shoot more during my days off and free times, i start to always carry the camera with me, whenever i’m going, trying to use it as a tool for street photography, a new world for me. After a few times i felt in love of the potential and power of the street photography. It’s weird but the Fujifilm X100s was the excuse to shoot more just for myself and for short-term projects. I could always bring with me my DSLR CAMERA but i consider it my tool for weddings, and yeah it’s a heavy tool to carry too, specially when i go out to take a walk. I also use prime lenses so i always ask myself which lens i want to use today....

Not the best time to have a new camera in my hands to give it a try and see how it feels. Got a cold that has kept me home for some time. Excuses... a top photographer can ma
