Review: Hitech 67mm Filter System | Eric Chan

Review: Hitech 67mm Filter System | Eric Chan | Photography | Scoop.it


When I found out my college roommate’s bachelor party was going to take place in the famous Yosemite National Park (Ansel Adams, anyone?), I knew I had to get my gear ready for landscapes.  I normally shoot portraits only, so my landscape gear was lacking. I have a LEE filter system for my Nikon D700 system which I love, but I didn’t want to haul 2.25lbs for the D700 body only.  So first step was to get a smaller camera system.  I sold my Olympus OM-D E-M5 when I got back from Italy because I wasn’t in love with the aspect ratio.  I felt like 14mm wasn’t all that wide and cropping from 4:3 to 3:2 made it even worse.  I heard great things about the Fuji X system so I decide to give it a try and bought a gently used Fuji X-E1 and 18-55mm f/2.8-4 off of Craigslist.  I also got a Fuji 35mm 1.4 for casual shooting, but that’s for another post. I got the camera ready, but now I needed some filters.  I knew I wanted graduated filters because all serious landscape photographers use them.  Yosemite National Park is known for its amazing landscapes, I knew I had to get some so I wouldn’t have any regrets of cheaping out after coming back.  So the hunt began. I’ll be honest, I mainly settled on the Hitech filters due to price.  When I searched for LEE filters for the D700, the price differential wasn’t very big, so I went with LEE.  However, with LEE’s Seven5 system costing significantly more (and harder to find in stock), I decided to give Hitech a try despite mixed reviews on their larger filters.  I figured with the entire system being so cheap, it would be a small gamble.......

Street photography in Soho and Covent Garden with the Fuji X-E1 | Al Power

Street photography in Soho and Covent Garden with the Fuji X-E1 | Al Power | Photography | Scoop.it


A few weeks ago I went up to London to visit the Photographers gallery and check out the Mass Observation exhibition (excellent - sadly now finished) with my good friend David, and then spent an afternoon introducing him to the fine art of street photography (to which he took to pretty naturally).

tips settings


For the most part I wore my Fuji X-E1 around my wrist using a wrist strap, with my finger on the power switch. Settings were pretty much 1/250th of a second, f4-f8 and auto ISO up to 6400, and manual focused/zone focused so that if I saw something interesting approaching, I could power on, and just raise the camera to my eye and shoot, all within seconds - often without my subject even realising. I used both the 18-55 and the 35 mm, but I really liked being forced to think with my feet within the constraints of the 35mm.......

The Fuji X-E1 & Fuji X-Pro1 and why I love mine | John Barclay

The Fuji X-E1 & Fuji X-Pro1 and why I love mine | John Barclay | Photography | Scoop.it


I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Fuji X cameras I’ve been using.  I thought it might be useful to share my thoughts on why I went with Fuji and have both the X-Pro 1 and X-E1 along with the X100. I was getting tired of lugging 40 lbs of gear in a backpack.  I was intrigued by the “mirrorless” revolution and started to investigate what was out there.  The Sony left me cold, feeling more like an electronic device rather than a camera. The Olympus is a micro 4/3 sensor and I wanted at least APS C.  I wanted the bokeh and performance that a bigger sensor would provide.  That said, the new Olympus is getting rave reviews for its performance.  I think Michael Reichman said it best in his recent review, “MFT used to mean some compromises when it came to image quality, but those days are past. Only the most neurotic pixel peeper will find anything to kvetch about with files from the Olympus E-M1 and its contemporaries.” After much research, I settled on the retro looking X100, a dedicated 23mm non-interchangable lens camera. I admit, I fell for its retro looks and unique and highly regarded dual optical/EVF viewfinder.  It has its quirks such as slow focus speed, however, when I opened the first file of a family that asked me to photograph them for a Christmas card, I was ASTOUNDED!   The color, tones and sharpness of the images were truly breathtaking.....
