Los Angeles with the X-T1 | STOCKOGRAFIE

Los Angeles with the X-T1 | STOCKOGRAFIE | 86 | Scoop.it

Once again I was sent on a business trip this year. You might still remember that I was the lucky one that went to visit Beijing/China in June 2014. This time I was sent to the opposite side of the World. The destination this time was Los Angeles. Actually the city of Long Beach where the company I work for has an RD department. Well I´ll be damned. I have to fly to LA in November. What a misery. It had been becoming increasingly cold in Germany and off I had to travel to sunny California. And that is just what I did. It meant that I had to leave my very beloved wife back at home for 16 days all together. I wish she could have joined me. But then again it gave me some free time to go and do what I love most. Photography! Of course I had to work as well. The company is not shelling out thousands just to send me on vacation. The downside was that the working hours where long and by the time I had finished it was dark already. Just like in Beijing I had to make the best of the evenings and the weekend in between. Luckily I did not have to work on the weekend. The hotel was situated right by the Pine Ave in Long Beach. There are plenty of bars and restaurants there so I definitely did not go to bed hungry. The so called Shoreline Village seems to be a touristy place which did make it feel a bit like a vacation, at least in the evenings, especially being able to sit outside with the temperature at about 22°C in the evenings drinking a cool bear. Sometimes it was warmer and sometimes colder! Anyway, to cut a long story short I did get the opportunity to take my Fuji X-T1 and the lenses I had with me for a run. I packed the XF18-55, the XF23, the Zeiss 1.8/32 and the Samyang 12mm f/2 in the bag. There was no lens I used most but I must admit that the Zeiss 32 could have stayed home this time. Sorry Zeiss ......

Tourist in my hometown - Oslo | Kjetil Kvien Madsen

Tourist in my hometown - Oslo | Kjetil Kvien Madsen | 86 | Scoop.it

One gets really blind of photo-opportunities in ones own city. But when you are a tourist in another city, you see everything in a different way. That’s why i decided to try and make a city walk in my hometown Oslo. Armed with my tourist eyes, i tried to shoot some of Oslo’s architecture from a tourist perspective :) All images are clickable to see the larger versions. (All shot with a Fujifilm XT-1 camera with a 23mm f1, 4 lens). This statue is placed in Kvadraturen (The quadrature) near the Akershus fortress. The hand pointing illustrates the hand of King Christian IV’s, when he supposedly pointed at this spot and said “The new town will lie here!”. This was after the big fire in 1624. There are still several well preserved buildings in this area from the 17th century.....

Fuji X-T1: my favourite camera for travel | Wim Arys

Fuji X-T1: my favourite camera for travel | Wim Arys | 86 | Scoop.it

I have come to rely on the Fuji X-T1 for travel photography. It is one of the few mirror-less cameras out there with a very descent kit lens (XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS) which for me almost always gets the job done. Whether you decide to go with the graphite silver or black edition, both will serve you well and are only cosmetically different. I either use the AF lock button on the back or half press the shutter with AF set to centre spot and focus and recompose, works like a treat.The 18-55 f/2.8-4 rarely disappoints, decently sharp corner-to-corner at f/2.8 already, but aperture is easily changed on the lens. Can’t wait to try the new XF 16-55 f/2.8 due in early 2015, not just for the undoubtedly even better optical performance, but having a weather sealed lens makes this combo even more useful. Every time I open my RAF files I am still amazed with the sharpness and quality of the images. I’m not gonna lie to you, the Fuji X-T1 does not have the best widest autofocus capabilities in the world, but together with the body’s hands-on controls, it makes a killer combination.....

Weekend Humor: On the Heels of the Fujifilm X-T1, Nikon Recalls the Df | The Phoblographer

Weekend Humor: On the Heels of the Fujifilm X-T1, Nikon Recalls the Df | The Phoblographer | 86 | Scoop.it


Weekend Humor isn’t meant to be taken seriously. So don’t, ya rube.

The Fujifilm X-T1 is everything the Nikon Df could have been. With a beautifully vintage appeal, the X-T1 is set to carve out its place both in Fujifilm’s oeuvre and the greater photographic space. Of all the camera companies, Nikon is perhaps the only one paying the closest attention to Fujifilm’s latest offering. Nikon’s internal memos reveal that the Df will soon see its final days thanks in no small part to the X-T1. “We just can’t compete,” wrote Nikon COO Alex Matthews. “How did we not come up with the X-T1?”.......
