The XE-2 book "Beyond the manual" has been delayed again to September

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

I have just received an email notifying me that the XE-2 eBook by Rico http://www.rockynook...ails.php?id=345 will be again delayed, until September because:

 

"New software updates were just made available and Rico is including these in the book to ensure that you will have the best, most up-to-date information on this fantastic camera."

 

Looking forward to that book and I am hoping there won't be an "XE-3" when the book becomes available ! :huh:

Samyang (Rokinon) 12mm f 2.0 Review - first hour!

Today, 01:09 PM

Posted by Jemhayward in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

Not many reviews of this lens about, but I decided the 10mm is way too big for the X-E1, so, although I'd really like an ultra-ultra wide, I do have my 8mm fisheye for that, so I bought the 12mm ready for my forthcoming waterfalls trip.

 

Build Quality - standard solid Samyang construction and style, compact and balances well on the X-E1.

Features - the hood is removable and reversible and when reversed the filter thread is accessible.  It has a filter thread which a lot of superwides don't.  Even better, it will take a Cokin P system filter holder without vignetting - my Canon 24-105 struggled with that!

Handling - the aperture ring is clearly marked and has half stop detents, except between 16 and 22.  Focus ring is smooth and operates the same way around as my Zeiss lenses, so I don't get confused!

 

Images - well, I've not taken it out of the house yet, but there is very little distortion of edges - better than the Canon 24-105 L at 24, and better than my much loved Zeiss 18mm f4 and Sigma 12-24.  

 

I've read one review, quoted widely, about this lens having a feint central yellow colour cast.  Mine does not show this at all so I think that review was of a faulty lens.

 

I look upon this as the equivalent of my Zeiss 18mm f4 on my old Contax RX, but this is less distorted, faster, slightly wider, and ten years ago my Zeiss lens cost £1k - in 2014 this costs < £300

 

So far, I'm very happy.

Hello

Just bought my first Fuji, a XQ1. I am a Pentaxian (K-30/K200D and MX), but they don't have a pocket sized camera, so i had to look elsewhere. I was looking to Sony and Canon, but Fuji had that little extra, so the choice was an XQ1.

Just had a few test shots, and it looks promising. To be a snapshot camera, it takes really sharp and nice photos. I will try this out, and maybe later i take jump up in the Fuji ladder :rolleyes: Attached File  Den Femte.jpg   41.86KB   2 downloads

Posted by Fujitime in Members - Introductions

Hi All,

 

I don't join many online forums, but Fujifilm has reinvigorated my passion for exploration and capturing the best of life's moments.  Traveling with a DSLR and equipment has been and increasing hassle, and relying on the cell phone camera just wasn't cutting it...so I decided to take a new direction and go with the X100S. So glad I did! Below are a few frames from my first session ever with the camera.

 

I've already come across many talented photographers on this site, and I look forward to learning and sharing experiences down the road.

 

Cheers!

No Thoroughfare

Today, 10:16 AM

Posted by Dobson in Fuji X Photos

I took my brand new Zeiss 12mm for a walk around town after work yesterday. This is my first ultrawide lens, and the field of view is a bit of a shock to my system. It really requires a different way of looking at a scene.

 

So far, I'm impressed with the quality of the lens. Handling is better than I expected from the reviews, and aside from the very tips of the corners (which are a bit mushy) the optics are great. I did have to take the giant lens hood off several times to get the camera through fences. A bit of an unexpected issue.

 

A gated off alley near my workshop. The evening light was fading fast and the scene had a lot of contrast. I exposed to keep the sky from clipping at the lowest ISO I could still hand-hold (1/15s). I then brought the shadow areas back in post.

The Anselmo mine yard. This was shot in even less light. I managed a reasonably sharp image at 1/4s by bracing against some barbed wire.

Hello from Hampshire, UK

Today, 08:32 AM

Posted by Rustiebin in Members - Introductions

Hi All,

 

I've just moved across to the world of Fuji having been a dedicated (and very happy) Pentax user for 5 years. The lure of a lightweight, massively capable camera body proved irresistable in the end, so made the switch to a Fuji X-E2. Well actually have the X-A1 as well but only bought it for the dual lens deal. Plan to sell the X-A1 body, only trouble is, i love it. In some ways more than the X-E2. And the standard cmos sensor is superb, i can't see any difference with X-Trans II.

Anyway, so far loving Fuji life. There's a few things i'm missing about the K5 but on the whole love the X-E2 and X-A1.

 

I'm not an experienced photographer. Dabbled since i was 13 but didn't take it up seriously until 30 years later. So only have 2 years of trying hard to learn the hobby. So much to learn and take in.

 

Hmm i think that's it. Just wanted to say hello before posting on the forum.

Review: Novoflex BALPRO T/S with Fujifilm X-T1 and Fujinon-EX enlarger lenses

Today, 06:58 AM

Posted by ohm in X-T1 Discussion

14786825311_b6210c5308_o.jpg

 

In part 1 of my review of the Novoflex BALPRO T/S, I look at the images taken by the X-T1 and the stability of the system for stacking. Parts 2-4 should come at a clip of once per week (if not otherwise too busy)

 

I finally completed part 1 of what I hope will be a helpful article for those looking for a bellows system to replace, or complement their macro or tilt/shift lenses/system. As you may or may not know, I am a full-time audiophile photographer based in Tokyo. I shoot for magazines, boutique shops, large and small manufacturers. 

 

Earphones are to me jewellery. For review I don't bother with anything but technical stuff, so please forgive the rudeness of the photography. Please instead note the spirit in which the photos were taken.

 

And the growing love for the BALPRO T/S. It is a valid system for those looking to one-up the macro-ability of their T/S system, or merely to try out lens moving systems. Enlargement lenses are inexpensive and super-duper sharp, if, as is seen in the Fujinon-EX series, poorly made, and in need of massive modifications to be shoot worthy in a heavy strobe system.

 

Anyway, I used the X-T1 for all of the photos in this review (a pain, but whatever, it's just a review), but workable. I don't recommend the X-T1 for full-time or merely interested still life parties. I'll talk about that later in another review. But it worked fine and didn't put any undue stress on the BALPRO (which is quite strong and stable).

Pixel Mago - Canon ETTL Flash

Today, 06:26 AM

Posted by pllphotography in Fuji X Flash Photography

I saw news about this flash from another photography forum.

 

http://www.pixelhk.c...how.aspx?id=292

 

I know it's a Canon ETTL flash, but can still be used in manual mode. What I thought was neat about the flash is the LED video light. This photographer did a review on this flash unit, and used the LED light as a modeling light! I don't know if the intensity of the light can be changed, and I doubt its power output is related to flash output like monolights, but would still be very helpful, especially when shooting in dimly lit locations.

 

http://tcphotoblog.c...4-to-8-01-2014/

 

 

Looks like the cost is roughly $80-90, which considering I spend $60+ on Yongnuo flashes, I might be willing to give these a try.

 

Just thought I'd share.
