Cute kids. More here.
There was no goal other than to play in the flour, but it came out very angelical, which is odd because I'm not religious. But here are some images from my second session with the X-T1. All shot using the 50-140mm f2.8 WR.

After my son visited the Gananoque Brewing Company (www.ganbeer.com) he came back with some samples to enjoy. I thought I'd try photographing one of the cans. I used my X-A1 with 16-50 kit lens (at ~50mm) and I lit it with my two old flashes (Sunpak 422D and Braun Hobby 17BC), both triggered by optical slaves from the on-camera flash in commander mode. The can was sitting on a black cabinet in the first and second photos and on a sheet of white melamine MDF for the last. For the second I used the white melamine as a backdrop and aimed the Braun flash directly at. I also had a piece of white paper on the right reflect some of the light that was coming from the left. I had no black backdrop in the first image, so there was a very small amount of light in parts of the black background that I removed with the GIMP.

This is episode #14 of the WeShootFuji Podcast and it's the last interview episode that will air in 2015.
The end of the year is also known as the time when we think about helping others in need. And we wanted to share with our audience how we photographers can give back to the community with a camera.
On this show we interview commercial Fuji X-photographer Paul Petch from New Zealand. Besides his commercial work, Paul uses his time and skills to bring together a community of creatives and business people to organise charitable events and give back to the community. His current project revolves around running and is called "Good People Run".
Paul shares his experience and some tips on how you can get involved or start these kinds of projects, too. And we talk about other nice charitable projects from photographers around us.

I'm looking to buy a 2nd hand X100S as a carry with me camera. I've got the chance to buy one locally. I don't know the seller. Anyone able to give me any tips on what to look out for - if anything?
Black & White
Curious if anyone has made the switch from an iphone to an android phone or other type of cell phone. If so, any regrets and which one would you recommend?
Thanks in advance for any insight.
does anyone know a way to set the AF-L button on the back of the XT1 to only lock focus (mine currently focuses and then locks focus)
I wll be shooting the x100s and xt1 along side each other and would like to set them both up the same
Currently my x100s has the AF/AE button set to only lock focus... It doesnt focus at all, it just locks it.... I use a half press of the shutter let go and then hold down the AF/AE button to lock that focus in... I can then shoot multiple frames while holding the AF/AE button in and focus will not change....
With the XT1 i cant seem to work out if this is possible... Currently the AF button is actually working as a 'AF-ON' type button where it is aquiring focus and also then locking that focus... I am trying to se it up so all it does is locks focus and does not try to aquire focus
The thread about a possible (or maybe just wished for) X-Pro monochrome started me thinking about the ideal camera for me. It would be based on the X-T1 body and would have the best sensor available at the time (I'm not worried about pixel count but rather quality of results).
Now for the big differences. I've owned 5 digital cameras over the last few years and never used a program on any of them. I always set them up to operate as a aperture priority and let it go at that. I occasionally shot in manual mode as well, so I'd want this new model to offer aperture priority, shutter priority and manual mode. Exposure compensation would also be necessary along with some obvious things like ISO and depth of field preview. This would clean up the back of the camera, and I could even do without the monitor on the back.
This would simplify the manufacture and hopefully bring down the price some. I even have a name for it. Call it the X-T R. Anyone else find this of interest.
