TOP TIP for XT1

Today, 07:51 AM

Posted by farnorthfocus in X-T1 Discussion

Having posted this as an answer to "rpavichs" post I thought I would post it for anyone else to se. Just thought it may be of use to someone.

 

Well, maybe this will help.

Noticing the same when digital SLR came into being I have always done two things with any new camera. 

First I always use only these 10mm webbing as camera straps and use SHRINK TUBE to seal over the buckle.

Second, I always make out of SPINNAKER TAPE a "NOSE FLAP" Cut sized stirp of tape 2/3 of screen, fold back on itself and take off protective layer, neatly bonding tacky side together leaving small amount to adhere to side of screen. As seen on photo.

You have a flexible but stiff flap which comes between nose and screen. Also added bonus , can help to view screen in bright light.

Does fold into screens that fold in on themselves, (use it on my HS50 used for birding) and does work when X-T1 screen is articulated.

Spinnaker tape is GREAT STUFF.

hope this helps

11 things that drive most photographers crazy

Today, 07:13 AM

Posted by JamesScott in General Photography Talk
As I'm sure you already know by now, there are some things that just don’t fly with photographers. I think every professional, regardless of field of work, has a few of these things he can’t stand to hear or go through, for various reasons. They might make them feel disrespected, underestimated, unappreciated, etc.
 
 
Do you know other good things that drive most photographers crazy?

Detroit with my X100S

Today, 06:03 AM

Posted by GDRoth in Fuji X Photos

I attended an all day business conference in downtown Detroit this week. I had a couple of hours to kill between sessions so took my X100S on a ride on the Detroit People Mover. That's an elevated tram that circles the downtown area passing by the Joe Louis Arena (Detroit Red Wings), Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers) and Ford Field (Detroit Lions). It also goes through the Renaissance Center which is the World Headquarters of General Motors. All I carried was the X100S with a CPL attached...........

Minimal Travel Kit

Posted by Skulmoski in X-Pro1 Discussion

I'm visiting London with my wife and daughter for a week. All I am taking is my XPro mounted with the 27mm. My fisheye, 14mm and 35mm will be staying home. I look forward to this minimalist approach.

 

Now, if the weather will cooperate! I'm looking forward to getting away from the 45 C weather here in Abu Dhabi!

Telephoto Lens ( At least 300mm ) for XT1 - Any recommendations

Today, 04:13 AM

Posted by Adam in X-T1 Discussion

Hi , 

 

I may be going on safari towards the end of this year / early part of next year.

 

I will need a focal length of at least 400mm ( full frame equivalent ) Unfortunately , it looks as though the Fuji super telephoto lens will not be available until the end of 2015.

 

Does anybody have any recommendations of any fixed length focal lenses i.e. Nikon 300mm ?

 

Am I right that I will have to manual focus such lenses ? 

 

Thanks.

 

Adam.

question about focus peaking

Yesterday, 10:27 PM

Posted by hkpm in X-T1 Discussion

I recently bought the XT-1 and the touit combo. It was my first time to try focus peaking.

When I manual focus with focus peaking on the touit 32mm, everything works fine, whenever it is highlighted, it is in focus.

However when I used the 12mm, sometimes I found that the object (normally something not close by) is highlighted but it is not sharp at all in the final image.

So I wonder if it is because the wider lens has a deeper DOF and the camera was fooled by it?

 

Does anyone experience it or it is just me?

Product Photography

Yesterday, 09:58 PM

Hi all, thought I'd get a discussion going about product photography.  There are many ways to do it, I've used bounce flash off a white ceiling, or from a white board.  Most of the time the images were just....ok. Nothing to write home about.

 

I was approached a few months ago by someone asking if I'd be interested in shooting jewelry for his website. Lots of sparkly jewelry.  I hedged my bets for a week or so and investigated everything I could find on the Internet.

Light tents.  I needed one.  Continuous light source, check.  So much better than flash, because you see the light falling on your product before you shoot it.

 

I decided to build my own light tent, that way I could make it whatever size I needed.  A trip to the building supply store got me pvc pipe cut to my dimensions. I found connectors to make the corners, in other words I made a square box, about 20x20 inches.  I did not glue anything. If I want, I can take this frame apart in about a minute and store it flat on a shelf.

Then I ordered these.

 

http://www.amazon.co...1?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Tilting heads, go up and down and adjust to whatever height your table is. While at it, I got the set of clamps offered below the lights at Amazon.   While waiting for delivery, I went to a fabric store and bought thin, gauzy white fabric. Actually a polyester blend that the light shines through great.

 

I use the clamps to hold the fabric, which is draped over all sides but the front.  I wish I had a couple more of the clamps but don't have to have them...it would be easier to have a few more. 

 

From there, you can customize however you want.  Use a stiff whiteboard for a floor, maybe even the back. If you put something heavy in there, you'd need maybe plywood with whiteboard on top of that.  For my purpose, I shoot the jewelry on a bust and everything else is cropped out, just showing the necklace on black velvet.  But if I wanted to shoot, say a vase, I would want a whiteboard or something standing up in the back. The white fabric is back there, but I can see the drape.

 

I did order a piece of black plexiglass and a square of mirrored stainless steel for other items than jewelry, just haven't found the time to use it, yet.  Think a product lying on a reflective surface, beautifully lit, and reflected.

I love these lights.  I suppose tech heads might question build, but they do the job, there are absolutely no faults or problems with them, so why spend hundreds when one hundred will get you two softboxes?

I have my light tent set up on a small table in my bedroom. A roller stool to sit on, put the camera on a tripod, and shoot.

I've shot around 700 images in the past couple of months (not with the Fuji X-T1, but with my 36mp Nikon because I crop a lot.  But I did try with the Fuji and have not yet figured out the adjustments to get the exposure right.  I need to keep fiddling with it.

Anyway, I hope you find my own personal "how I did it" interesting, and spark ideas of your own.  For instance, it would be easy enough to make your own "sweep" to fit inside. Or you could just order one ready made.

I enjoyed putting everything together.

EVF isn't really wysiwyg

Just wondering if there's a way to fine tune the evf to truly show me what my exposure will look like? When I upload my pics they are way off from what I thought I shot.

LR 5 import from memory card with Fuji x100s pics painfully slow

Yesterday, 08:27 PM

Posted by cc8 in Fuji X Post Processing

I am a new Fuji X100S enthusiast (have only used the camera for about a week). Normally shoot on a D7000. My question is: when I put my SD card (full of Fuji pics) into my Mac, LR is PAINFULLY slow in importing. I have a card with only ~15 pictures on it and LR has been "importing" for a good 20 minutes and at that, LR isn't even showing me any previews. It just seems hung up on the import stage. This can't be right. Has anyone else experienced this? What could be going on?

 

The import progress bar *is* moving (though at a snail's pace) so photos are indeed being imported. Just at a painfully slow rate.

 

Thanks for your help!
