At Photokina, Fujifilm delivered a presentation about the new Fujifilm X-E1 compact system camera, the Fujinon XF14mm lens and the XF1 “premium compact.” The presentation also contains interesting tidbits about the design concept behind these cameras, the X-DNA and the X-Trans colour filter array.

The firmware update Ver.1.11 from Ver. 1.10 incorporates the following issue

 

1.When FUJIFILM M-mount adapter is set to the camera body and the correction menu of "COLOR SHADING CORRECTION" or "PERIPHERAL ILLUMINATION CORRECTION" for the mount adapter is operated, corrected live image can be displayed on EVF/LCD for setting appropriate value with ease.

Sarah Beaufoy & Coco de Mer | Dave Kai-Piper | X-mount | Scoop.it

 

For most people who know me, they will know, or soon will know how much I love the Fuji X-Pro1. This Newton inspired shoot with Sarah Beaufoy & Coco de Mer (www.coco-de-mer.com) was shot using the X-pro and just the light in the room. We had a spare day and thought we should have a little shoot using the house. As all photographers grow we change our style and change the inspirations behind the work, at the moment I do seem drawn to the powerful iconic photos of the Newtons and Baileys. One of the things about Newtons work I love is the way he keeps away from normal angles and lighting. Something we was keen to try with this shoot. The Black and white conversion was done in camera using the Fuji Film Simulation modes. Some extra dodge and burning was added in Photoshop after. I used the technique of making a new 50% Gray layer and converting this into soft light then painting on the layer with large soft brushes. Trying to preserve the noise from the camera was an important detail. Shooting at High ISO on the Fuji is great as you can use it to creative effect in a nice way, especially with B&W. These were shot using the Red Filter.

Fujfilm X-Pro1 and Off Camera Flash – FlashWave III ‹ roel.me | X-mount | Scoop.it

I found out from Billy of the Fuji Guys that he was using the FlashWave III radio transmitter (on the camera above) and receiver (to the right of the camera) for off camera flash – they are often re-branded under the name “Impact PowerSync 16” but they are exactly the same units.  After using these with my X-Pro1 for the past two months, I am extremely happy with them.   They are inexpensive, reliable, lightweight and best of all, they are small relative to my camera.

I've had the Fuji X-Pro1 since April 2012 and like anything, it takes a while to really get to know it and I'm probably there now. So for this reason I wanted to add to my first blog post, the review of the X-Pro1.

Firmware V2.00 for X-Pro1 | Fujifilm Global

Firmware V2.00 for X-Pro1 | Fujifilm Global | X-mount | Scoop.it

 

The firmware update Ver.2.00 from Ver. 1.11 incorporates the following issue. To enable those features, please update the firmware of your Fujinon XF lenses into Ver 2.00 at the same time.

 

1.Improvement of Auto Focus Performance

(1)Auto focusing speed has become much faster under a various shooting condition such as dark scenes, bright scenes and so on.

(2)The shortest focusing distance without switching to macro mode has become shorter.

 

2.Improvement of Manual Focus Performance

(1)The speed of images coming into focus when turning the focus ring has become faster.

(2)When adjusting the focus with the EVF or the LCD, displaying live view with the minimum depth of field in full aperture has made it easier to focus on subjects.

(3)In addition to the focus checking with the 10-time magnification function, the checking with "3-time" magnification function has been added.

 

3.Improvement of Writing and Processing Speed

(1)Writing speed to a memory card has become faster with the maximum speed doubled. <Note> The speed may vary depending on card type and sizes of images.

(2)The waiting time of viewing image after shooting has become shorter.

(3)An image will be displayed approx. one second after pressing the playback button.

 

4.Other improvements

(1)The ISO setting of "Auto (6400)" has been added.

(2)When EVF or OVF is used, the indicator lamp will turn off because the lamp comes to just in front of your right eye if you see the finder with your left eye.

(3)When shooting in low light situation, a recorded image will look like more natural atmosphere you saw.

Some tips for travel photography | Frank Doorhof

Some tips for travel photography | Frank Doorhof | X-mount | Scoop.it

 

Let me start off by telling you that I don’t think of myself as a great travel photographer, my main focus is fashion/glamour and teaching those areas of photography. However thanks to my work I do travel a lot and over the years I’ve been building a portfolio from the shots I take during the trips that I even feature on my website, meaning that I really like those shots. Of course most of the images I took 2-3 years ago are now replaced by new ones, and the new ones I like a lot better so I’m learning every trip. During my seminar “being creative and getting the shot” there is a lot of attention for some parts of travel/street photography and people respond very positive to this part of the seminar, so I thought it would be fun to share some tips on the blog, I hope it will help you out on your next trip/vacation to take better shots. And remember that ALL these techniques also translate to model/fashion/glamour photography.

Really useful!
Ji Woong Jang's curator insight, April 30, 2013 11:59 AM

As you click this  page, there are many beautiful shots from different angles!

It means we can take more interesting shots by changing your position even if you are on the same spot! It is really useful!

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Review | Thom Hogan

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Review | Thom Hogan | X-mount | Scoop.it

I really wanted to like the X-Pro1—and I do in that strange way you like your odd-ball cousin who seems a bit on the crazy side—but it feels like a camera that would have wowed everyone three or four years ago but is already showing some age. It's definitely not the camera to get if you're a state-of-the-artist. The focus and buffer/write performance will quickly get old.
