Anyone using an Eye Fi card with their X Pro 1?

Today, 09:42 AM

Posted by Eli1 in X-Pro1 Discussion
Has anyone used a eye fi card with their x pro 1?
I really want the x pro 1, but I want Wi Fi transfer.
The X-E2 looks like it specs are great, but I really love the ovf that the xpro 1 has.

Have used all the new classic 35mm RF's--leicas, konicas, and contax and was dragged, kicking and screaming from them to a dslr. I got an x100 when it first came out, and now take that everywhere while a canon dslr kit collects dust.

Should I wait a little while longer and hope an xpro 2 comes out, or get an eye fi card/xpro 1, and be done with it?

My name is Mike and I am a recent convert to Fuji X-T1. I sold all my big Nikon gear as I was not using it anymore. Just too big and heavy. My camera should arrive today. Very impressed with this forum

Kipon adapter makes a macro lens from an ordinary lens

Today, 07:23 AM

Posted by jknights in Adapted Lens Discussion

I just came across this on the Kipon website.

http://www.kipon.com...etail.asp?id=76

 

 

Seems very interesting.

 

KIPON macro series adapters fit Nikon, Leica, Olympus, Pentax, Canon, M42 etc., lenses to be mounted onto SONY E mount and FUJI X series mirrorless cameras, which allows ordinary lens to be macro lens after mounted the adapter, the adapter has built-in helicoid tube with perfect infinity focus and can be manually adjusted to achieve macro shooting effect.

 

At preset there is no adapter for Fuji lens to Fuji body only third party lens manufacturers such as Nikon, Canon, etc...

 

No idea of price but it is a great option to have as the lens retains its infinity focus ability.

Does Sony make Fuji sensors?

Today, 07:08 AM

Posted by Ilovemycam in General Photography Talk

On another forum it was said...."Fuji uses Sony's sensors. They do have their own color filter array, but the image sensor itself is a standard off-the-shelf Sony sensor."

 

True or false?

 

If true, what other camera companies use Sony sensors?

Macro photography with X-M1

Today, 05:56 AM

Posted by kenary820 in Fuji X Photos

The good thing is the X-M1 is light before adding the lens and speedlight. But without EVF one cannot putting the camera near to the face for stabilization. The tilt LCD are very much useful for the odd angle.

Settings:
X-M1
Canon FD 50mm macro f3.5
Canon ET
Raynox DCR 250
YN 460 ii
iso 400, f/16, 1/60s

 

I am happy with my present combo, I can get more that 1:1 magnification and this is uncropped.

X-pro1 viewfinder error

Today, 01:58 AM

Posted by Machineboy in Troubleshooting

My X-pro1 suddenly developed an error yesterday when shooting with the Samyang 8mm fisheye.

 

The hybrid/electronic viewfinder suddenly stopped working, and now the viewfinder just shows a white square and/or white lines and some digital messy pixels. It suffered no blows, moisture or anything, it just suddenly stopped working.

 

On the included screenshot you can see the white overlay when it is in hybrid mode. The dust in the picture is from my mobile, the camera and viewfinder itself is spotless.

 

I've tried installing the latest firmware, taking in and out the battery and memory card, changing lenses, no lenses and of course switching between the different viewfinder modes.

 

Has anyone experienced this or heard of this error before? I reckon I will have to take it to a camera repair shop, but it would be interesting to hear if this has happened to anyone else - or if someone has some clever ideas I should try out before it leaves for service.

 

Thanks,

machineboy

Getaway weekend with Fuji X100 and X Pro 1 to Portland, Oregon

Yesterday, 09:31 PM

Posted by denissf in Fuji X Photos

Spent a really great 4-day weekend in Portland this past weekend.  Great food, family and friends.  To keep things relatively simple, I brought just my X100 and X Pro 1 with just the 14.

 

My cousin does a lot of product photography for Starbucks.  On Friday, I got to meet his co-workers, spread the Fuji gospel a bit (one of the guys there in the office owns an X100S) and sat in at the studio for a product shoot.  Later in the afternoon I tagged along on another session that he and the team shot on the street.  I shot some behind the scenes stuff with a nod and some encouragement from the creative team.  Made me feel like a part of the goings-on instead of just an onlooker and forwarded that work to them in case they wanted to add it to their reel.  Man, what fun that was.  I learned a lot just getting to be around that process.

 

During a lull in the action I got to play with Brian's Leica M and 35 'Cron.  Pretty sweet little setup.  I can't imagine carrying that much money around, but wow what a nice rig.  I've been trying to upload a two-shot, informal comparison of the look and feel of the x100 and the Leica that I shot, but the Leica .jpg keeps hanging up the uploader and crashing the browser (for the last hour, grrr).  I can upload them to Flickr if anyone cares.  

 

Below are my favorites from the weekend. I even managed to sneak in some street photography down in the Pearl District on our traditional excursion to Powell's.

 

Hope you enjoy.  I sure did!

The life of a street photographer

Yesterday, 05:04 PM

Posted by montymo in Fuji X Photos

Interesting people.  I walked past them and took a couple of pictures.  Sadly,I didn’t get a “group” picture. I returned to my car. Because I was parked in front of them I thought I'd try to get one more photo from inside my car. I rolled down the passenger window and snapped the parting shot below as I drove away. 

 

 

I was home for about an hour when the police called :)  Apparently they copied my license plate number and called the police.  One of these days I will need bail money...

More from XPro1 w/27mm

Yesterday, 04:36 PM

Posted by Jannie in Fuji X Photos

I got a little time for a walk about the neighborhood on the way home from lunch with friends. One of the things I notice I wish was different is that I wish the 27 would focus close. I know it's a general pancake ideal for street photography and I may have to get a diopter for it. I believe the X100S does focus quite close. Another place where the X100S would shine is that having an f2 would be of benefit. I'm not knocking this lens, those are the only two negatives I can come up with and what I bought it for is street photography and also for the lower profile so I can in the future carry it in a purse.

 

While these are in black and white because that currently is my medium, my interest, the color from this lens is quite nice. I processed these in Lightroom 4.4 and messed around with dodging and burning, shading and using the color sliders, used some presets that I've downloaded from time to time, I think I got them from the Lightroom guy Matt Kozlowski-very unsure of that spelling , random choices for contrast and played with clarity and contrast quite a bit. I could do pretty much anything I wanted with the images. Some are cropped nearly 50%. They might be a little overcooked for some people, I tend to not have a defined style nor judgment on what is the right way when it comes to black and white, I'm still experimenting and going back and studying prints from the old days when we did this in a darkroom. Back then we often went for a lot more contrast and worried less about detail. I love visiting the Magnum website to study black and white images from others. 

Here's from my walkabout:

How do I fine-tune the flash power (EF-42)

Yesterday, 04:08 PM

Posted by walliswizard in Fuji X Flash Photography

Couldn't think of a better subject title.  Anyway, cutting a long story short, here's the scenario:

I was trying to practice balancing ambient light to flash.

I measured the ambient as f/2.8, 1/160s at ISO 1000.  Something like that.
I placed my EF-42 into manual.  I am triggering these wirelessly and the triggers aren't TTL, hence the manual selection.  The flash was on a stand firing through a brolly, pointed at the subject from up high at about a 45 degree angle.
I used my Sekonic set to Auto Reset Cordless Flash and took a reading of the flash by pressing the sekonic, pointed at the brolly, and then pressing the other trigger to fire the flash.

All worked except the meter reading I found I got when the flash was at 1/32 power on the flash was was about f/3.2.  1/64 power was giving me an underexposure reading.

The question is what, if anything, can I do to adjust the power of the flash to give me a reading of f/2.8 in that situation?  With my studio lights it's much more finely grained and I can get exposure spot-on but strobes seem a different beast.

Ta muchly in hope!

Help with Fotodiox adapter and Nikon G lenses on XT-1

Yesterday, 02:04 PM

Posted by billhink3 in X-T1 Discussion
I purchased a Fotodiox adapter and mounted a Nikon G lens, 50 mm 1.4.
Has anyone had experience using this kind of set up.
At this point I am not getting any change in focus. Also, the Nikon lens does not have an aperture ring. is there a any way to adjust aperture with this adapter?
Thanks
