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!

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...

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

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.

My Tried and True X100 Is about to Journey Forth Once Again

Yesterday, 07:50 PM

Posted by carpentrylai in X100, X100S and X100T Discussion

I have a killer trip coming up in January, which is almost 1 month long.

 

A little history first.

 

I have traveled around the world and been to some fantastic places.  I do not have a lot of money but rather have been fortunate. Two of my largest trips were paid by others.  I went on a month long European/African Trip in 2007 which my father paid for before he passed away.  

 

He wanted to make sure I saw the world.

 

My girlfriend won a trip to Chile in 2013 and I was fortunate enough to go with her.  The Chilean trip was my first to use the x100 and until then, I had always used a dslr set-up.  The x100 coupled with a canon g12 as back-up revolutionized my picture taking on long trips.

 

The X100 was on me at all times.  I had my girlfriend carry my g12 in her purse in case we needed it.  When I say all times, I mean from when i got dressed to goto breakfast till I got undressed for sleep, the X100 was around my neck.  It was so liberating.  Did I miss any shots?  For chile, the X100 was perfectly fine.  I never asked for the g12 except at one point where my battery died and I had to capture a factory tour on it.  

 

The X100 was able to capture pictures my old canon dslr just flat out could not at my skill level.  The x100 has a way of seeing light like no camera I have ever used and it makes our job of seeing the picture so much easier.

 

 

I thought long and hard about upgrading the x100 for my next trip but decided why fix something that is not broken.

 

I used to be afflicted with GAS, but as I get older, just want something that works and works well.

 

The x100 performs.

 

My next trip is to Africa again, but I will have 2 layovers in Istanbul for about 17 hours.  I hope to get some good shooting done in Istanbul.  In africa I will be flying into Capetown and spend approximately 22 days.

 

Of this 22 days my girlfriend myself and my sister who lives in S africa will take a 7-8 day journey into Namibia.  We will see several cities including the capital and coastal towns.  Also, we will travel through the namibian dunes and the Kalahari.  We also plan on spending a couple of days in the Etosha Game Reserve, which my sister visited 17 years ago and said its the only game reserve where she has seen a lion kill.  It is supposedly one of the best reserves in Africa.

 

I plan on shooting just about everything with my X100 except when I get to the game reserve where I will utilize the telephoto of the G12 for game shots.

 

Anyway, I will post some pictures back here from the trip as I plan to do a journal of it as I have in the past.

 

For those of you on the fence about a x100 or X100S or x100t.  The x100 is a fantastic camera and I could easily buy a newer one, but it performs so well.

 

Not being a professional, it perfectly suits my needs.

 

It has been quite liberating to go from a kit that includes large dslr's and lenses to the x100 and g12.

Hello from the Northwest US

Yesterday, 05:29 PM

Posted by Martin79 in Members - Introductions

Found my way on here to see what kind of macro shots people are taking with the Fuji.

 

Right now, I have an X-pro; 23mm Fuji lens and the 50mm Zeiss Touit. It has become my main travel photography kit and I sold off all of my Nikon gear earlier this year.

 

Happy with the Zeiss 50mm for macro but am curious what other people are doing with some of the old glass that's out there?...

 

Attached a shot from last week's little adventure in Eastern Oregon taken with the Zeiss. The Fuji made me interested in serious photography after a decade plus hiatus that saw my old Nikon FM2 in storage. Hope to learn a lot from all of you.
