Lightroom 4.4 Release Candidate with better X-Trans support on Monday | Fuji Rumors | Tahiti Zoom | Scoop.it
Stéphane Sayeb's insight:

Way to go Adobe! X-trans processing getting better is always welcome. Lightroom certainly had its shortcomings, but then so did Capture One. I was able to work through the Lightroom issues and keep my catalog processing in tact. Capture One would have required a complete reworking of my workflow and a restructuring of my old catalog with many many thousands of images.

Photographing a Fashion Jewellery Campaign with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Kent Johnson

Photographing a Fashion Jewellery Campaign with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Kent Johnson | Tahiti Zoom | Scoop.it

I love working with clients that have a clear vision for their brand and from our very first phone contact and meeting I knew that minds behind new Fashion Jewellery label OUMIRA were very switched on; understood their target market and the kind of eye catching, fashion branding images that would grab a customers attention. As the premier sales point for Oumira is an online shop we decided to go with classic white background, lit and photographed in the studio - great for online retailing and very popular with PR's and Fashion Editors for ease of insertion in magazine 'What's Hot' fashion pages too. The brief was for great energy from the model; and this only comes from great energy between the model and the photographer, to be combined with fabulous lighting,  put it all together and capture those special moments.

Pros & Cons of shooting Fashion with the Fujifim X-Pro1

Pros

- A very high percentage of Sharp and In-Focus shots = more keepers to choose from.
- Exceptional file quality straight from the camera.
- Great detailed files from RAW - but see the Con below..
- Ability to shoot with any of the three viewfinder options & I used all three on this shoot.
- No mirror 'black-out'; you see the shot you are making.
- Everyone loves the X-Pro1, and the client probably doesn't own one (yet)..

Cons

- You need to remove the tripod plate to open the Card/Battery door.
- Viewfinder not as large as with a DSLR, I look over the top of the camera if it's a problem.
- RAW conversion tends to be time consuming - frustrating - impossible under some circumstances..
- Write speeds not as fast as DSLR - can slow down playback viewing.
- Minor shutter lag, though not enough to cause me at least to miss any shots..

For me the decision to use the Fuji X-Pro1 on this shoot was definitely the right call. The Camera and the XF35mmF1.4 R were a perfect combination for the contemporary fashion look and feel we were after from the shoot. The image quality is superb and the cameras ability to focus accurately and quickly (in that order) allowed me to focus more on what was happening in front of the camera; the shots, than worrying if the shots were really in focus or not. And as I wrote in my X-Pro1 review on Street Fashion Sydney; this is a camera that enhances your photography instead of hindering it.  Love it!

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Blinking Red AF Point Information

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Blinking Red AF Point Information | Tahiti Zoom | Scoop.it

Posted by CanonRumors on November 15, 2012

 

Firmware Coming?
"There has been a lot of questions wondering when Canon will release a firmware update similar to the EOS-1D X that adds the blinking red AF point when in AI servo mode. While I figured they were working on it, I wasn’t quite sure why it hadn’t been brought to market or included with the announced and upcoming firmware update.


This is a direct quote of what I have been told:"

How FujiFilm X-Pro1 does in Video | Hassan Kiyany

How FujiFilm X-Pro1 does in Video | Hassan Kiyany | Tahiti Zoom | Scoop.it

 

At the beginning I must mention that FujiFilm X-Pro1 is not Video Camera or not even DSLR as you already know but it definitely hold huge capability and functionality to record High Quality High Definition video same as the main functionality which is Photography. I should admit that I have fallen in love with X-Pro1 not because of the video option! It’s not also about retro look only, It’s all about wonderful size camera to do a great photography in street and other spaces as well as video which this post is all about my experience in shooting video with X-Pro1 and various lenses. I even tried Leica Summicron 50mm with M-Adaptor which I have borrowed from my friend UAE photographer Ammar Al Attar. The video below shot and captured just for the test purpose and to be shared with audience who interested to see how XPro does in video mode. The challenge was for me to shoot within 10meter around one location, with various lenses. Mostly steady by monopod and some handheld. ( It wasn’t good idea since it was windy evening!)

Let me start about where I have enjoyed for most! I loved the smooth focusing ring, Of course Leica focus turn to be magic as expected. However Fuji Lenses were great lenses I ever used so far! Of course There was challenges as well. Based on experience I had with High End DSLR’s like 5D Mark2 and Mark3 as well 7D I believe Fuji Cameras require more improvement to get more manual control over the video capability. It shouldn’t be difficult task for them after all. Hope they read and watch the video and the post I’m sharing. After watching this video, I’m going to list the Pros and Cons as I have found so far! ...

Have you ever learned that you should autofocus on the same point twice in a row to achieve optimal focusing? Apparently it’s a tip that’s often taught to beginners.

A Man that Plays with Fire and the Fuji X-Pro1 | Mac Sokulski

A Man that Plays with Fire and the Fuji X-Pro1 | Mac Sokulski | Tahiti Zoom | Scoop.it

Since I got the Fuji X-Pro1, I wanted to try it out at night.  Something more interesting than the normal night street photography.  The opportunity presented itself when we were asked to photograph a local artist, who wanted to show off his skills.  We quickly agreed, and setup a date at Elk Island National Park, which seemed appropriate for these activities.  I brought two cameras, my Sony NEX-7, and the Fuji X-Pro1.  My wife brought her Canons 5D, and 40D.  All tripod up, and ready for action.  I have to say, Bryton Keomanivong is pretty damn amazing.  The way he was, almost with out any effort, playing with fire hula hoop, and other fire accessories (for which the name escapes me), was simply astonishing.  One of the best performances I have witnessed, and was allowed to photograph.  Since I had only one tripod, the Sony went to the bag and Fuji came out.  I was hoping to freeze some of the action using an off camera flash.  I was using my old Canon speed light.  The setup worked just as I intended.  Fuji X-Pro1 again exceeded my expectations, as did Bryton.  You have to check out his Facebook page here: BrytLyght.  Here are my shots from that spectacular evening….
