First Long Exposures with the Fujifilm X-T1

First Long Exposures with the Fujifilm X-T1 | Fujifilm X | Scoop.it
Since the Fujifilm X-T1 was announced in January, I've been on the fence
about purchasing one to replace my X-Pro1. As much as I like the X-Pro1,
the fall it took in September last year seems to be slowly taking its toll.
After considering my options, I went ahead and ordered the X-T1 kit which
includes the XF 18-55mm lens.

My X-T1 arrived Friday and this past weekend, during a break in the rain, I
took it along with the XF 18-55mm to Huntington Beach to shoot a few long
exposures. After one morning of shooting, here are my first impressions on
using the X-T1 for long exposure photography.

The Good

The Images - no surprise here since the X-T1 uses an updated version of the
X-Pro1 sensor which is also in the X100S. I haven't processed any RAW files
yet since they aren't supported in Lightroom, but the JPEGs are typical
Fuji.

The Viewfinder - I'll be honest, I was a little underwhelmed by the new
electronic viewfinder at first. Perhaps, my expectations were too high
because of all the glowing reviews I had read. Once I put it to use at
Huntington Beach however, I started to see and understand what all the fuss
was about. In good light, the viewfinder along with all its new technology
is really something to behold. Since I often focus manually when shooting
long exposures, the new dual screen display made checking focus much
easier. Especially now that I can set the focus peaking color to red, what
a difference!

The Tilting LCD - this is definitely a nice addition. Not something I
needed, but it really does help when shooting on a tripod. I found the
display a little dim when I was composing in bright sunlight, perhaps I
should've adjusted the brightness setting. In any case, I ended up using
the EVF when this was the case so having both options was a big plus.

The ISO Dial - on the X-Pro1 and X100S, I leave Auto ISO on unless I'm
shooting long exposures. To make things faster and easier, I program one of
the custom settings on both cameras to set my ISO to 200. With the X-T1,
this wasn't necessary since it can now be done with the turn of a dial. The
locking ISO dial works for me because I don't need to change my ISO very
often or very quickly. For those that need to change ISO frequently, the
lock button on the ISO dial may slow things down a bit.

The Bad

The Buttons - by far, my biggest complaint about the X-T1 are the buttons,
especially those on the 4-way directional pad. They are too recessed and
don't provide enough feedback to know when they've been pressed. I
understand that changes were probably necessary to accommodate weather
sealing, but these are the buttons many people use the most. I now find the
task of changing my AF point to be a more difficult and slower process.
While this isn't a deal breaker for me because my subjects tend to be
stationary, it may be for those that need to change their focus point
quickly.

The Threaded Shutter Button - or lack there of, most likely another trade
off to accommodate weather sealing. This won't matter to some, but for
anyone that wants exposure times exceeding 30 seconds, a $50 remote from
Fuji is now required (at least until something cheaper comes along).

The Bottom Line

As you can see, the good for me outweighs the bad. While the X-T1 isn't
perfect, it does offer several improvements for long exposure photography
over the X-Pro1. The biggest ones being the new EVF and tilting LCD. Are
these must have improvements, not by any means. But since I was in the
market for a new camera, they are certainly welcomed.

My recommendation to anyone considering the X-T1 as an upgrade from the
X-Pro1 or X-E1/2 is to try it out in the store first. While the new EVF
really is great, it may not be enough to warrant an upgrade. Especially if
you are using an X-E2 which already has the updated X-Trans sensor found in
the X-T1.

With that, I'll leave you with my first long exposure images from
Huntington Beach shot with the X-T1 and XF 18-55mm.

Solving for X: Algebra of the Fujifilm X-System | Fujifilm X | Scoop.it

Another day, another camera system...

Remember: all my reviews are user experience based. I don't shoot test charts or do measurements. I take photos and make prints. My goal is to have my work hanging in peoples homes and businesses – not to be a "professional" reviewer or photographer.

In this blog post I'm going to stop short of a full review of a specific camera or lens – I am instead reviewing the system itself and explaining why I think it's worth a look and why I shoot it.

California Dreaming with the X-series cameras | Olaf Sztaba | Fujifilm X | Scoop.it


What a trip it was! Almost 10 days, 5,500 kilometres, three ghost towns, the Oregon Coast, San Francisco, Yosemite and lots in-between. Kasia and I had planned this trip for a long time. Some places we had visited before (Shaniko, Oregon Coast), while others (Bodie, Yosemite) were new for us. As usual with such a wide photographic endeavour we tried to plan this trip around light – photographing in the mornings and evenings – driving during the day and at night. Of course, we didn’t have much control over the quality of the light we would encounter but this time we were extremely fortunate in this regard. First on our list was Shaniko – one of our favourite ghost towns in Oregon. We’ve visited this tiny intriguing place before but all we got was blue sky and strong summer light. Not this time! As we approached Shaniko from the north we saw a big storm building up in the east and with a bit of good luck we encountered fantastic light. Just before Shaniko, Kasia noticed an abandoned farm in the distance; she insisted we make a turn into a rural road to get to it. She was right – it was a stunning sight.....


All images were captured with the Fuji X-Pro1 with 14mm F2.8 lens and Fuji X100s

An Interview with Portrait & Fashion Photographer Dave Kai Piper | SLR Lounge | Fujifilm X | Scoop.it

Who Is Dave Kai Piper?

 

Professional photographer, re-toucher, educator, organizer, Fuji X-Photographer, teacher and one very busy guy. I had the good fortune and pleasure of interviewing the man behind Ideas And Images and got a little insight into what it takes to run and sustain a successful photography business, how he creates the images you see here and much more, read on for all the details!

 

How would you describe your style?
You promised these questions would be easy! I guess for some people this is a really easy question, but I do struggle with this one. At the moment if someone was to log on to my website they would see a mix of headshots, landscapes, music photography and fashion. During 2013, I started to shoot much more with deeper depth and single lighting, I guess styles change, I feel 2014 will be my beauty year...........

A sort of gear review: The Fuji X-series | Greg Funnell

A sort of gear review: The Fuji X-series | Greg Funnell | Fujifilm X | Scoop.it


The other day I had to make a call I never wanted to have to make. At 28 I needed to see a chiropractor - some would call it the photographers curse, a curse that unfortunately goes with the territory. Lugging heavy camera gear around, usually with it hanging from the neck, waist or one shoulder eventually takes its toll. This realisation along with some other vague and equally suspicious excuses was one of the reasons I'd been interested getting myself one of Fujifilm's X-Series cameras - the thought of having a camera that was small and light and could maybe even supplement my heavy old SLR was appealing. I knew they would probably never replace my SLR for work but as everyday cameras they seemed to offer a good compromise. In 2011 I bought the Fujifilm x100, a camera I loved to hate, a camera that for me was so nearly there in terms of what I personally was after but somehow not quite. It looked fantastic (for some reason more of an appeal to me than it really should be) and contained pretty much my perfect carry around set-up; packing an equivalent of 35mm f/2 lens. It was almost too silent when it took a photo (to the point where at times I wasn't even sure it had taken) but is small size and discretion were a big plus for me, the whole thing could slip in my pocket and yet it felt good in the hand with a nice weight. The whole manual shutter and aperture operation were a total winner for me. .....
