I've recently found myself dropping my partner off in town every Saturday morning around 10am, so I've taken the opportunity to deliberately revisit the same location to approach it with all the changes of weather and tide that I find, and seeing how a change of perspective/lens affects the way I see it through the eye of the camera. Processing has been done in LR and generally with VSCO presets plus varying amounts of my own personal tweaking to go beyond the presets (except 3. which was processed using one of my older personal presets updated for Fuji raw files).
 
 
On my most receent visit I've stitched together a multi-shot panorama of one of the most photogenic boats still working from the quay.  The lens used is the Carl Zeiss Teletessar 135/4 HFT in the Rollei QBM mount on the X-E2.  An overlooked lens because of the reatively slow speed at this focal length but it has excellent sharpness, contrast and colour from wide-open - and it's quite cheap at c.£60-£80.  I've cropped the full panorama (c.150MP) a couple of different ways.  Stitching was done using MS ICE.

2. 15395593677_7562831e4d_c.jpg

(as an indication of the size of the full panorama, the Cinemascope aspect ratio version would print 5'10" - just over 175cm - wide at 300dpi)
 

 
The week before I approached the quay with the Fujinon 55-200mm nd the X-E2, and the tide was higher,,

I'm enjoying this semi-discipline of revisiting the same scene over a period of time and seeing it through the vantage points of different lenses.  I may miss the odd weekend looking ahead, but I intend keeping this up for several more visits.

Full case options for X-T1

Today, 03:46 AM

Posted by Bob_M in X-T1 Discussion

I am looking for a custom fit case for my X-T1 that I can use to protect my X-T1 when carrying it in another bag or backpack.  I have seen positive reviews of half cases made by Gariz, Kenji, and Kaza, but as these cover very little of the camera, I do not believe they would provide the protection I need.

 

Looking for similar options that offer full camera coverage, I came across four on Amazon made by MegaGear (http://amzn.com/B00KIN8OMK), TechCare (http://amzn.com/B00LU1ZYJA), Westlinke (http://amzn.com/B00KMOSJ2A), and Dengpin (http://amzn.com/B00KS03FWC). 

 

All four of those are significantly cheaper than those made by Gariz, Kenki, and Kaza while offering full camera protection.   Does anyone have any personal experience with any of them?  Would you recommend one over another?  Or yet another option I have not yet found?

 

Thanks for the help.

Using the X-A1 Without Strap or Hand Grip?

Today, 03:10 AM

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

I have just bought an x-a1 and as a long time dslr user, the first thing I noticed is that it's awkward to hold such a small camera. I don't like using a neck strap and I don't want a bulky hand grip, so I think I will have to use the camera with no strap or additional grip. Does any of you use the x-a1/X-M1 this way? I could also consider a wrist strap. Is there any particular wrist straps you could recommend?

New Orchid

Yesterday, 09:07 PM

Posted by apsphoto in Fuji X Photos

Over the weekend I picked up a new orchid, I only have a couple and they seem pretty hardy to me, usually plants don't survive well around me, but orchids seem to do well. I really like the colors on this, never seen one quite like this decided to get it. Taken with a X-T1 and 60mm macro at f4, iso640. A focus stack of 11 images, stacked in Zerene Stacker. The iso was due to the low light was going away in the late afternoon, the aperture was to blur the background.

Hi all, glad to finally, officially, say hi with some pics.

Yesterday, 05:03 PM

Posted by NaDAen in Fuji X Photos

Im a dude in his 30`s from Denmark, Europe.

 

Me being here, started up with me going thru the winter `13, and spring `14, reading up and down, and down and up, looking for the perfect camera for me to buy.

 

It was a long quest, went thru various models of Nikon, then Canon, and somehow, luckily ended up with fuji X100S.

 

I finally got my hands on my lovely X100S be around July 1. this summer.

 

In honest words, I had to start up getting to know, and feel the very basics, such as aperture, iso, shutter ect, so it`s clearly been a very fun ride so far.

 

Before going photo with this lovely camera, i was more into cam recording, but that was 5-6 years ago, and taking photos with at camcorder wasn't / isn't, the most for filling and ideal thing to do. So i ended up buying this beauty. 

 

And so now, today I’m finally able to contribute to this community with some of the many pics I’ve already created with my lovely fuji x camera. Humbly i show some of the pics.

 

Have a good one to you all.

XPro1 w/27mm

Yesterday, 04:33 PM

Posted by Jannie in Fuji X Photos

Do love this 27mm but sometimes I wish it would focus closer, I was at the farmers market and wanted to get closer than allowed to a lot of the produce. But for everything else, this lens on this camera really rocks. Compared to the 35mm 1.4, I'd say the quality is identical in all areas only I noticed just a touch of barrel distortion which was easily correctible in Lightroom 4.4. Just a heads up, I'm using an older iMac, about 2010 model, just upgraded to Yosemite OS X and it's working great with Lightroom. I couldn't resist using a HDR preset on the bike/book reader-but I did tone it down a bit.

Hi all 

This is my first post here.

Can someone please confirm if I can update my X100S firmware from 1.03 to 1.20 in one step or do I need to do each update in between ( 1.03>1.10)

Thank you

Don't wanna go back..........

Yesterday, 02:19 PM

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

I understand there is always a learning curve, but golly......

I am really struggling with adapting to, and understanding my first REAL camera.

My point and shooters (HS10 & 50) were simple, and I got good results without really understanding why :phew:

 

Most of my time is spent on taking product shots of my wife's creations that are sold on the internet.  https://www.etsy.com...annette?ref=em

 

But I enjoy landscapes, etc, as I live in a very beautiful location and opportunities abound.

I took this one last evening as the darkness was falling on a stormy day.

Please tell me some pointers, tips, etc.

 

I think my lens might be wrong, XF 35mm F1.4 

 


 HELP......

Dust inside my 27mm

Yesterday, 11:48 AM

Posted by brixx in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion
Hi,

So... I'm traveling with my X-E2 and 4 prime lenses... And despite I really love the fuji system I'm discovering some little inconveniences... I already talked about the silver painted X-E2 discoloring... Now it's time for the little 27mm pancake!

I've been in a couple of dusty and sandy places...paying attention of course, I didn't trow the camera in the sand, but it seems like some dust got inside the front lens! I'll attach a picture, the front lens is clean, the visible dust is behind it. erutymem.jpg

Do you think this can affect image quality?

Is it worth it to get it cleaned...?

I would open it myself, I completely serviced many legacy lenses and I've opened and fixed the fuji 14mm wobbling aperture ring... But in this situation it is the second front lens and the barrel opens from the back... And I don't even know if the lenses are glued or what...
