Recommendations for a good Wide angle lens

Today, 10:05 AM

Posted by dalcan in Adapted Lens Discussion

Similar to my post below this- I am looking for a lens, alternative to Fuji that will meet my needs at a way cheaper price.

 

My shooting needs are landscape, street, and live concert photography for this one. I was looking at the 10-64mm from Fuji but there is NO way I can afford that at the moment. All suggestions are welcome! Post samples if you can.

 

Thanks

XS1 Bent hood

Today, 09:20 AM

Posted by FUJIFRED in XQ1, X-S1, XF1 Discussion

If you notice a strange artifact on the edge of wide angle (24 mm) shots with your XS1, check the lens hood. I just noticed this after returning from a trip where I did a lot of wide angle, and saw that one of the petals on the lens hood was defectively bent inward (no, I didn't drop or bang it). Going back, I saw the same artifact in initial pictures. Just in time, returned to Amazon (excellent service) for replacement.

23mm or X100?

Today, 09:13 AM

Posted by bakaroni in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

If you wanted a 35mm equivalent FV, would you buy the 23mm lens or the X100? The advantage of the former is the flexibility it gives in mounting it on different bodies. The advantage of the latter is that it gives you an additional body for the same price (used), resulting in the reduction in need to keep changing lenses.

Recommendations for a good Portrait Lens

Today, 07:48 AM

Posted by dalcan in Adapted Lens Discussion

Hey all- I'm interested in getting into the Adapted Lens'. I don't really know much about it, other then they need to have the manual settings on the lens. I'm thinking I could save some money by going this route! I'm looking mainly for a great adapted portrait lens that won't break the bank. All suggestions are welcomed!

 

Thanks!

first impression X-M1

Today, 07:17 AM

Posted by suedje in X-M1 and X-A1 Discussion

After having a Sony Alpha-100 and Alpha-450 for quite some time, we noticed that we left the camera bag more and more in the house, instead of taking it with us on various trips.

When the kit lens broke down, we decided to look for a system camera, and we bought the X-M1.

We are every happy with this new camera.

 

Here some pictures we shot, these are the JPEG files, directly out of the camera, no processing or whatsoever

Soon joining the club!

Today, 05:36 AM

Posted by rutxer in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion

Hi guys!

 

I'm mostly a Nikon shooter, I've had (in purchase order): D3100, D800, FM2n, F4s, FG, FM3a... from which remain D800, F4s and FM3.

 

Then I've tried the rangefinder world (and liked, but not as much as to drop my DSLR) with a Bessa R2A, which I also keep.

 

Then I went micro4/3 (with an Oly E-PL3) but didn't like that camera or the system at all... and changed it for an X20, which brought me (damn it!!) to Fuji.

 

 

And now... I'll add the 6th member of my camera family (3rd digital one) with a black X-E2 + 18-55mm + 35mm, thanks of the sale of the FG + 3 nikon AIs lenses and couple of offers from Finnish stores.

 

I'll make a proper presentation when it arrives. I can't wait!!

 

Cheers!

Fujifilm X100T Review

fujifilm_x100t_18.jpg

 

The new Fujifilm X100T is the third generation of Fujfilm's wildly popular 35mm f/2 fixed lens compact camera. Building on the success of last year's X100S, the new X100T focuses on making the handling and operation even better than before. Have Fujifilm succeeded in the tricky task of making an already brilliant camera even better? Read our in-depth Fujifilm X100T review to find out...

Panorama/Photo stitching software

Today, 04:15 AM

Posted by AndrewSt in Fuji X Post Processing

I have tried rather unsuccessfully to stitch some faily simple panoramas with both Canon Photostitch and Hugin.

 

Any better software out there? I don't mind paying if I have to. I don't find Hugin very user-friendly and can't try the Microsoft programme as use a mac.

 

Any suggestions?

Getting up close with close-up lens

Today, 03:41 AM

Posted by petern in Adapted Lens Discussion

I tried a Canon 500D closeup lens yesterday that got some good online reviews. Although I do have the Zeiss 50mm macro lens, I wanted to use a longer focal length for "moving targets". So I thought to check if the 500D lens could be helpful for longer distance closeup shots with the Fuji 55-200mm.

 

Focusing has to be done by using the minimum focusing distance and move closer/further away from the subject until you're in focus. Until then you basically don't see anything.

 

My conclusions: 

  1. a closeup lens only works for non-moving targets. I should have known that because I had seen only examples of flower shots, portraits, and products. 
  2. It’s a nice alternative if you don’t have a macro lens or want to bring one with you. 
  3. Using a close-up lens requires patience and practice.
  4. Additional sharpening is necessary.
  5. I’ve send mine back. 

Some examples of flowers in a vase on a rainy day (all shot with tripod at f11):

Portmeirion Beach

Today, 01:37 AM

Posted by nickruss in Fuji X Photos

This image is doing well on my Flickr stream. It was taken on a family trip to Portmeirion in North Wales and processed using Silver Efex Pro. It was also the first time I went away only with the XF 18-135mm lens and apart from the weather sealing which was invaluable on the typically wet days, the IQ is stunning.
