Playing with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Steve Schlackman | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

Ok, here are some points I want to get across. Everyone is correct about the great quality. It rivals my Canon 5D Mark II. And that is what any camera of this quality is for.

Finally, I find the depth of field to be very different from my Mark II. That takes getting use to. Now this is normal. It has a bit more depth. I am not saying there is anything wrong with the Fuji. The Canon has a smaller lens barrel, and it is full frame. So there is going to be a difference. I just want people reading this to know this so they can make adjustments for it. Below are 2 images. The right is the Mark 2, left is the X -Pro1. They are the same ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. You can see how the quality in both is just outstanding. And you can see that the depth of field for the mark 2 is different. So with the X Pro1, just remember to adjust the aperture as necessary.

A day at Getty Center with Fuji XPro-1! | Faran Najafi

A day at Getty Center with Fuji XPro-1!  | Faran Najafi | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it


Few weeks ago I got an opportunity to re-visit the Getty Center in Los Angeles, CA in beautiful Southern California weather. During this visit I had my Fuji X-Pro 1 next to my Canon 5D MK III with 14mm F2.8 L II attached to it. I tried both cameras that day and once I got home to process the photos, I was amazed how my Fuji performed when I compared the photos with 5D MK III!!! I would say in some cases the result was very similar.

X-Pro1 In Low Light … Simply WOW! | Al Smith Photography

X-Pro1 In Low Light … Simply WOW! | Al Smith Photography | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

The most impressive piece of the act though was the way the X-Pro1 dealt with darkness and stage lighting. There were no cameras allowed during the show so I didn’t get many pictures but the couple I snapped with no flash in silent mode were amazing. This image is straight out of the jpg engine on the X-Pro1 and man I can’t believe the file.

If you are not a pro and want an amazing camera this one is just stunning. If you are a pro and want a traveling camera don’t even think about it just buy it! I mean just look this image! It is literally a super quick snap shot due to pressure and it’s amazing.

X-Pro1 OVF Tips | Gregor Dawdle

X-Pro1 OVF Tips | Gregor Dawdle | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

thanks to Gregor Dawdle for this tip, but it doesn't work for me in OVF mode :-(

...
the brightness of the display superimposed on the OVF, can also be adjusted. By QMenu "LCD brightness" if you have the eye in the viewfinder. Indeed, adjustment of brightness OVF and EVF / screen are seperated.

 

Kind Regards and thank you for all your curation.

What I am seeing is LCD Brightness can be set independently for the EVF and LCD.

However it does not appear to affect the OVF HUD. The HUD seems to gain up/down on it's own depending on the available light.

Fuji X-Pro1 Diaries: Down By The River

It was a sweltering day, despite the tropical thunderstorm in the morning. By noon, the puddles of water on the pavements and roads had all but dried up, leaving no evidence that just a couple of hours before, it was raining down cats, dogs and other assorted animals. The heat from the ground formed a swirling haze and people took shelter in the relative cool of the shade....

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Compact System Camera - Review | Imaging Resource

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Compact System Camera - Review | Imaging Resource | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

Shooting with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 is really a kick. It took me back to the days when all I had were prime lenses, and my senses were tuned to the world around me such that I could anticipate which lens I needed before the action happened, and swiftly reach into my bag for the right lens. Naturally, though, I occasionally watched helplessly as moments passed with the wrong lens mounted, being since spoiled by the zoom. Five police officers on Segways snuck up on me when I had just mounted the 60mm lens, while the 18mm would have been perfect to capture them all with their near-identical inquisitive expressions. It's a pitfall of shooting only primes, but the rewards are worthwhile.

CAMERA REVIEW: Fuji X-Pro 1 by FUJIFILM | Photo Madd

CAMERA REVIEW: Fuji X-Pro 1 by FUJIFILM | Photo Madd | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

IN DAILY USE

This is a biggy. Anyone who ‘got’ using the X100 will get using the X-Pro 1 too – it is a very similar camera in a lot of ways. Those who never got the X100 will be unlikely to enjoy using the X-Pro 1 either. It isn’t the huge leap forward that many might have been hoping for, it certainly is better, but it isn’t like comparing the Olympus E-P2 with the E-P3 where the PEN range suddenly took that big step forward....

X-Pro1 Diaries: Just Before Dinnertime | Handcarry Only

X-Pro1 Diaries: Just Before Dinnertime | Handcarry Only | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

The hour before dinner time is a curious occasion. The working masses are spontaneously poured out onto the streets, evident in their eyes, relief that the workday is finally over. The fading light in the sky heightening the growling in their collective stomachs as they go in search of sustenance, mostly in groups, laughing and gesturing, occasionally alone, with the dim light of their mobile phones upon their faces. The restaurants and street hawkers are in a frenzy of activity, preparing for what typically is their busiest time of day. Amidst the smoke and smells, the harsh fluorescent light and garish neon, a city is winding down.

Beers are poured, cigarettes lit, tales exchanged.

Its dinnertime.

The X-Pro 1 is a brilliant camera, quirks and all. Explore its capabilities and make the most of it. And do shoot that 35 wide-open—it renders the most boring and mundane subjects so gorgeously it's almost not funny. And people complain about aperture chatter. Bah!

The Fuji X Pro 1 and Nikkor Lenses part V | Jim Gamblin

The Fuji X Pro 1 and Nikkor Lenses part V | Jim Gamblin | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it


Nikon has made a number of 28mm lenses over the years. The most illustrious is undoubtedly the 28mm f/1.4 AF-D. In the past I usually avoided the 28mm focal length in favor of the 24mm and 20mm lenses. When the 17-35mm Super Wide Zoom came out in the mid nineties, it quickly came to be my “go to” wide angle lens.
...
When I began trying out my Nikkor lenses with the Fuji X Pro 1, this was one lens, that I had not anticipated becoming one of my favorites. The focal length with APS-C sized sensor, gives a cropped field of view of around a 42mm equivalent. Kind of ho hum area. However it has been a joy shooting with it. All of the things that I liked about it before seem almost better now with the Fuji’s sensor. Funny how some of the lenses I had great expectations which were not fulfilled and then others surprised me in good ways...

My First X-Pro 1 Engagement! | Michael Cali

My First X-Pro 1 Engagement! | Michael Cali | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it
Yesterday was my first attempt at taking the new Fujifilm X-Pro 1 on an engagement shoot.. and I loved it! I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about taking the camera into the wedding and engagement world.. especially since I switched to shooting only film quite a few months ago. I met up with a wonderful couple in New York City.. and shot this camera anywhere and everywhere I could.


"I really tried to test it in dramatically different lighting conditions.. and was excited to see that the camera held its own! I really did what I wanted it to do in the field.. and that’s what is important to me. I want to know that regardless of the situation.. I am able to perform my job at the highest level possible."

Dare to see!: I stand corrected | René Delbar | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

As of today, I enjoy a much clearer view through my X-Pro1 viewfinder: I finally could install a diopter appropriately correcting for my vision.

I never intended for this blog to be about technical issues, but I guess my recent ‘quest for the optimal diopter’ may be of interest to many X-Pro1 owners.


Do diopters work well?

The Fujinon XF 18mm F2.0 R Lens Review For The Fuji X-Pro1 |  findingrange.com | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

As of now, there are only two lenses on the market that you can purchase with your Fuji X-Pro1. One is the XF 35mm F1.4 R lens, which seems to be the hot lens for the X-Pro1 now. The other is the XF 18mm F2.0 R lens, which is the wide angle sibling of the 35mm. If you could only buy one lens for your X-Pro1, which one should you buy?

I'm not saying this camera is perfect for everyone, it's just perfect for me, like I said there's nothing in my last few years of work (and play) that I couldn't have shot equal to or to higher quality, (and with more ease, specially stealth and lets not forget to mention how light and portable it is) with this camera....

Fuji X-Pro 1 autofocus trick | picabroad.com

The X-Pro 1 autofocus is surprisingly good at locking onto moving targets – humans, bicycles and cars can all be caught with relative ease. First, set the X-Pro on AF-S (NOT AF-C). The trick is to depress the shutter in one go – the camera may take 1/4 of a second to sort out the focus, but it feels like there is some sort of an algorithm that compensates for that 1/4 second (or however long focusing takes) and puts the plane of focus into the right position.
If you’ve been brought up on DSLRs the overwhelming urge is to half press the shutter to get focus – do this on the X-Pro 1 and the autofocus will fail on fast moving objects. Mash the shutter (gently) in one go and it works really well, even at f.1.4 with taxis.

I got my X-Pro 1 yesterday, and after some frustration and complaints, I am starting to like the XP1 more by working around some of the quirks.

Here are some workarounds to the quirks that I compiled. Some from discussions with others and some via testing.

2. AF AND LOW LIGHT AF WOES

Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder | FUJIFILM X-Pro1

Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder | FUJIFILM X-Pro1 | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

Similar to a camera lens, a viewfinder consists of several concave and convex lenses. A camera with a fixed focal length lens only requires a single set of viewfinder lenses for the specific focal length. However, if multiple focal lengths must be supported, the camera needs to have as many sets of viewfinder lenses in different configurations. It is also necessary to consider the light path of both optical and electronic viewfinders. Constraints of the camera's body size were another element of difficulty. Determined to incorporate a Hybrid Viewfinder to the interchangeable-lens X-Pro1, Fujifilm explored several systems.

Beauty and the Beast - A very personal assessment of the Fuji X-Pro 1 | Soundimageplus | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

At ISO 200 and f/11 the images that this thing produces are astounding. Absolutely gorgeous. They are so clean. There is no "graininess" or luminance noise visible anywhere. None, not a bit. Colours are clean and beautifully rendered, there is an incredible definition and clarity in the images that I've never seen before. The images are beautifully sharp and raw files developed in the Silkypix software need no extra sharpening at all. The jpgs. are mind boggling, they are almost perfect. I can get slightly improved results from the raw files but its only marginal.

All in all.. I’m completely loving this camera. It definitely has it’s quirks.. autofocus being one of my main concerns.. but I haven’t had the chance to test this camera out in a setting more prone to what I do.. weddings, engagements, and portraiture. I’m not usually one to just head out and shoot street photography.. but I did want to post some of my initial pictures with this camera. I get back from my travels with Joe McNally next week.. and I’m looking to really put the X-Pro 1 through the gauntlet! Stay tuned..

X-Pro1 At 3200 ISO:: Belladrum Festival | Derek Clark Photography | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Balladrum Music Festival near Inverness in Scotland is a pretty interesting place and it’s full to the brim with interesting people. I was there as a musician playing last on the second stage..

 

There’s no fear at shooting 3200 iso with the X-Pro1! There’s also no fear shooting at wide apertures, you just simply compose and let the camera do the rest. This first shot was at f2 and 1/60 of a second. I was shooting the performers in the background playing with fire, but I found the foreground more interesting.

 

Dereks great black and white shots on his 35mmstreet site:
