Nice one, Centurion ~ Fuji X-Series & Capture One / SurroundingLIGHT photography

Nice one, Centurion ~ Fuji X-Series & Capture One / SurroundingLIGHT photography | Fuji X Series | Scoop.it

...Camera shake, or just the camera missing the spot can result in a soft image. I took plenty and this one was pin sharp on his eyes. Capture One Pro has done an excellent job as my digital darkroom. Shooting in RAW gives me the latitude I need in order to produce a few pleasing images. There are always plenty that go straight in the recycle bin. For me photography is a never-ending learning curve. Every camera and lens will have its quirks and every situation brings a new set of challenges…. I hope you enjoyed today’s post.

Comparing the Fuji X Cameras. Which one is Right For You? / dan bailey

Comparing the Fuji X Cameras. Which one is Right For You? / dan bailey | Fuji X Series | Scoop.it

In just a few short years, Fujifilm has built an impressive camera system from the ground up. Starting with the introduction of the X100, which they launched in September 2010, they’ve since expanded their lineup to include a number of highly advanced interchangeable and fixed lens compact cameras that have completely stirred up the photography world.

 

Shooters of all styles and levels have fallen in love with their compact, classic body styling and with the remarkable image quality that these cameras produce. So much so that an increasing number of amateurs and pros alike have replaced their entire DSLR rigs with Fuji X camera systems and haven’t looked back.

Crop or Crap? Zack Arias Tackles The Question Of Full Frame vs Crop Sensors / slrlounge | Fuji X Series | Scoop.it

Zack Arias is one of the biggest names in photography education of recent years. He built his name on the idea that a photographer can use one light to create stunning images. Today, I am sharing a recent video Zack did tackling the age old (haha, not really) question of Full Frame Sensors vs APS-C Sensors.

...This didn’t really leave me with too many other options so I thought I would try the Fuji XF 55-200 Lens. Sure it’s not the fastest lens around, with a maximum aperture of 3.5 to 4.8, and anyone who has been following my Blog knows that I much prefer fast primes to zooms...

EIGHT HOURS, WINDSWEPT | AN X-T1 TIME-LAPSE EXPERIMENT / LaRoque | Fuji X Series | Scoop.it

As most of you know I’ve been using the X-T1 extensively — it’s become my main camera. Any minor gripes I had have effectively been swept away by daily use and rewiring most of my reflexes to this new body. I’ve even stopped hitting the dedicated video button by mistake… Although on that front I still have my fingers crossed for a customization update ;)

Ultra Long Fuji X-E1 Exposure Tutorial | Mark Hilliard

Ultra Long Fuji X-E1 Exposure Tutorial | Mark Hilliard | Fuji X Series | Scoop.it

Ultra long exposure photography can be a very fulfilling pursuit and generate etherial images that draw your viewer into them leaving them week in the knees! As a photography master generalist I can tell you that there are a few speciality areas that can really excite me and force my juices to flow!  Specifically they are:

 

- Ultra High Speed photography: Water Drop Collision Photography, Daytime Lightning Photography & Hummingbird Photography

- Infrared Photography

- Grist Mill Photography

- Ultra Long Exposure Photography.

 

This post is a tutorial on Ultra Long Exposure photography using the Fuji X-E1 camera with its 18-55mm lens, a 6 stop B+W ND filter and a Sekonic L758DR spot meter.

 

Fuji X-E1 with its 18-55mm lens

 

The Fuji X-E1 is my 3rd in the Fuji line. I started with the X100 and moved to the X Pro 1 in order to have interchangeable lenses, then to the X-E1 to take advantage of its Electronic Shutter Release. I have always been a Canon shooter with closets full of L lenses.  But due to a spinal operation that went dreadfully wrong I lost 80% use of both hands and arms.  No longer able to hold heavy camera equipment I started on a long journey searching for high quality camera system that was small and light weight and produce world class images.  A long story shortened, I settled on the Fuji X lineup and their fine quality lenses along with a few CV and Leica M mount lenses.

Now, the Fuji X-E1 with its electronic shutter allows me to hook it up to my water drop machine, Lightning Trigger and Hummingbird control system!  The only lacking item is its short lens lineup.  With the introduction of the new 55-210mm lens this spring even that will no longer be a problem for me!

 

Long exposure has several issues that you must overcome to successfully create the etherial, emotionally charged image.

 

- Long Shutter Speed: Even in low light you will find it difficult to get a shutter speed at f/8 (sharpest).

- Difficulty Focusing:  Darkness you know…

- Unreliable Metering: Especially with an installed ND filter.

- Camera Shake:  Requires a STURDY tripod and REMOTE SHUTTER RELEASE.

 

The Long shutter speeds generally can range from 15 seconds to 20 minutes. These are difficult to reach unless you shoot at night with light from the moon.  What I find that I do is shoot at dusk on or just before sunrise to overcome this issue.  Usually I will add a Neutral Density Filter (ND) to reduce the total amount of light reaching the image sensor. This will allow you to shoot with more ambient light and generally make this style of photography easier......

What's Your #1 Photographic Wish? Mine? A Fujifilm X-T1 with a Sony 24mp APS-C Sensor / The Wandering Lensman

What's Your #1 Photographic Wish? Mine? A Fujifilm X-T1 with a Sony 24mp APS-C Sensor / The Wandering Lensman | Fuji X Series | Scoop.it

What is the thing at the top of your photographic "wish list" that you would like to have or see created and sold?  My number one wish is for Fujifilm to put a Sony 24mp APS-C sensor in the X-T1, or its successor, as an option to the X-Trans sensor.

Rumor: Fuji to Release Minor X-T1 Upgrade with a 4K Viewfinder in July

Rumor: Fuji to Release Minor X-T1 Upgrade with a 4K Viewfinder in July | Fuji X Series | Scoop.it
Fuji’s X-T1 already has one of the most impressive electronic viewfinders in the mirrorless world, but if recent rumors are to be believed, that that isn’t good enough for the Japanese company.


...

Is this just an excuse to fix the button issues that have plagued some of the X-T1′s, is it about a better viewfinder, and are either of those reasons good enough to urge Fuji to jump on the incremental upgrade train that Nikon and Canon are so frequently lambasted for?

Shown in Fujifilm's lens roadmap as due for release mid-year, the Fujinon XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is officially announced today (Monday, June 16). Covering a focal length range equivalent to 27-202.5mm, the XF 18-135mm will be welcomes by many owners of X-mount cameras for its versatility, particularly by owners of the weather-sealed X-T1 model, which is the ideal match for the company's first weather-resistant lens.

Using M Lenses on Fujifilm X Cameras - La Vida Leica!

Using M Lenses on Fujifilm X Cameras - La Vida Leica! | Fuji X Series | Scoop.it

n our first Fujifilm related review, Fujifilm X-T1 vs. the Leica T - we touched on using various M lenses from Leica, Voigtländer, Zeiss and others on this camera. In this article, we'll be expanding on this greatly, covering Fujifilm X series cameras in general, the various adapter options available and their use as well as looking at the performance and general results of using M lenses on these cameras.

 

We'll be using the Fujifilm X-T1 camera for this article, along with M lenses from the top three manufacturers. Everything from the Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH to the Voigtländer Color Skopar LTM and Zeiss ZMlenses.

 

Why are we talking about Fujifilm cameras? Well, much to Leica Camera's chagrin, it's a capable platform that appeals to many with a cost and feature set that's hard to ignore. And while we're a Leica oriented website - we're not a Leica owned website. We're unbiased here, and free to discuss any and all things relating to Leica, even mixing brands interchangeably. Remember, we're about photography here, not brand loyalty. So it it fits into the ecosystem somehow, we're cool with it.
