AF setup for the Fujifilm X-T1 | Nikon Glass | Photography | Scoop.it

As strange as it may sound, one of the big reasons I fell in love with the X-T1 is its face detection capabilities, it's so bloody accurate (for the majority of times). And what I mean by “accurate” is that when the camera actually focuses on my subject, it places the line of precise focusing right on the nearest eyeball! With the XF 23mm f/1.4 wide open, and when it focuses, its spot on! Of course there is my small print: “majority of times” that also needs to be explained. I may shoot 30-40 shots of a kid playing in a matter of a minute or two, and I may have only 4-5 shots that are out of focus – that’s a great success rate. This doesn’t mean you will get the same results, what it means is that the camera and lens combo ARE capable of such results depending on various factors such as lighting conditions and the photographers experience. With the XF 18-55mm I get faster acquisition, similar accuracy (helped by the larger DOF) and slightly more misses.......

My Fujifilm Love Affair – a X-T1 & XF56mmF1.2 R two week review | JKsPepper

My Fujifilm Love Affair – a X-T1 & XF56mmF1.2 R two week review | JKsPepper | Photography | Scoop.it

Why am I calling this a love affair?  Perhaps it’s because this best sums up the experience I have for the Fujifilm devices, both the newly released X-T1 and the aging X-E1 before it.  With the titans of the compact mirror-less camera world, the 24MP FF Sony RX1 and the 36MP FF Sony A7R, already comfortably sitting in my bag, how is it that the venerable X-E1 and superfluous X-T1 are sitting there beside them?  This is my attempt at a reasonable explanation.  As always it starts at the beginning, when I first picked up the Sony RX1 it forever changed my outlook on photography (you can read my one year in review here…).  It also made life difficult if I wanted to shoot anything other than at 35mm, I needed wider but now also wanted small and my old Canon wasn’t cutting the mustard any longer......

Here are 80 of my pictures shot using the Fuji X-T1 in jpeg mode. I shot RAWs too but don’t have a means of processing them yet. I switched the camera to monochrome and did any final tweaks in Lightroom. Jpegs have very little latitude for adjustment so I’ve pretty much left them as shot. Enjoy!
