MONSOON: Drenched in Delhi with Fuji X-Pro 1

... I was near Karim's, a famous Mughal restaurant, when it started to rain. Hard. I ran under a tarp awning and gestured something like "EH, how 'bout that rain" at my new friends who shared the dry space with me. They smiled. We watched people shielding their hair with newspapers as they ran by trying to avoid the overflowing pot holes in the road. I dabbled with the thought of eating at Karim's while the storm passed, but I decided to break out the umbrella and find some photos instead....

Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver / new 56mm f/1.2R APD

Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver / new 56mm f/1.2R APD | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
When we first heard about the Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition we were enthusiastic. After all, the X-T1 was one of our favourite cameras of the year, so when a manufacturer starts talking about a "luxury multilayer coating" what's not to like?. ... However, we did get to play with the new 56mm f/1.2R APD lens, complete with apodization filter for even more rounded bokeh. And it's a beaut. ...

Review and Samples of Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS Lens | Derek Olsen

Review and Samples of Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS Lens | Derek Olsen | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
Verdict:I give this lens 4 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed my time with this lens but I’m going to sell it for something more compact and less bulky (*see UPDATE 1). It’s a little awkwardly weighted on the XE-2 and I found myself shooting only within the 10mm – 14mm range 80% of the time. So I’m purchasing the Zeiss 12mm f/2.8 Touit * — a nice middle ground that will take up less space in my bag. The Fujifilm 10-24mm f/4 is a high-quality lens that could definitely pass for certain professional uses but perhaps not for huge fine-art prints (though that’s up for debate). While compiling the photos for this review I almost convinced myself to keep the lens! If you don’t mind the extra weight and size or f/4 aperture, this is is fantastic purchase........

Fujifilm X-T1 firmware update Decemember 2014 | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
I woke up this morning to some great news! The Fujifilm X-T1 will have a major firmware update in December 2014!
hpc's insight:
*Electronic shutter:Great if it allows to shoot raw wide open in full sun , it could be a cure for the 200ISO minimum setting* Natural live view mode: Nice, to be tested* Accessing the macro function without entering the menu: I do not have any macro lens, but surely useful if you are in macro * Ability to lock the spot area to the focus point in spot metering mode:Useful * Program shift now allows you to shoot 1/4 sec:Who is using program mode? * VIDEO:As I do not shot vidéo, I do not know

Paris | XF 10-24mm | Patrice Michellon | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
Let's face it, shooting architecture and landscapes is not something I feel comfortable with. However I've always been attracted by long exposure and sunset shots. Three things were missing so far in order to start an long exposure architecture project and I managed to get two of those already:the will (yep, got it eventually)a proper lens. The Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 has been delivered!filters (still missing those babies but it doesn't prevent from training and shooting)Unfortunately for me the 10-24mm I ordered came with dust between two lenses and I could only play with it for half a day before sending it back. The pictures below are a tiny set of what I could quickly shoot in the morning before going to work and during my lunch time in Paris.....

T-Minus Cologne | Patrick La Roque

T-Minus Cologne | Patrick La Roque | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
We’re almost there: tomorrow at 18h55 we fly to Frankfurt. Then it’s a train to Cologne and the adventure begins. I’d love to say everything’s packed and ready…. Sure… Like that’s how life works with three young kids in the house. But we’re getting there. Below is THE KIT: X100S with the wide and tele converters. I debated taking the X-T1 for a few hours, just enough time to realize I was reverting to exactly the same reflexes the X100 had liberated me from three years ago. Which lens do I take? This? No, that? No. Way. The reason I have the converters is because Fujifilm Canada is loaning them to me along with the X100S itself — I still have the X100 and they were nice enough to let me borrow this one for the duration of our trip. As much as I still love the original X100 there’s been quite a jump in performance since its release and I’m rather used to this by now. The X-T1 does tend to spoil a guy. The old X100 is fine for quick outings but Cologne, Venice and Rome? I might've regretted my choice along the way (even though I know the images would’ve been great).......

Fuji X-E1 ~ The bargain of 2014 | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it
When I first got my X-E1, I chose to go through an import company. The price with the kit 18-55mm lens was just too high in the UK and I knew the price would eventually drop, but wanted to get the camera as soon as I could.
hpc's insight:
The X-Pro1 is the other bargain and the X100s should be another one soon.
