RAW newbie

Today, 02:24 AM

Posted by Rob M Poole in Fuji X Post Processing
Hello,

This might be better suited in the newbie section and I'm sure it's been asked before but I struggle to find what I'm looking for using the search button...

Anyway, after messing up my white balance last time I went away I'm considering shooting RAW instead of jpeg. I use an X-E1 and an x100. Has anyone got any tips and tricks? I process using light room 4.

Many thanks

Rob

Newlyweds

Yesterday, 09:44 PM

Posted by Activatedfx in Portraits, People, & Pets

I went to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens today to take some photos of the spring flowers. Not much to see yet... just Crocuses. I had packed up and mounted my street/everyday XF56 back onto the X-E2 before walking back home, when I spotted this couple basking in the sunlight. I am not good at engaging strangers, but this couple look so cool. I just had to try.

 

I said "You look amazing. Did you just get married?" They said, "Yes." I then asked if I could take a photograph of them. The man said "Sure." (deadpan), the woman said "Only if I can keep my eyes closed." I said, "Of course!". I snapped 2 photos, wished them a happy life, and went on my way.

 

This was the first time I had asked a complete stranger if I could photograph them. I have missed so many opportunities over the years, but now I am emboldened, and will not be so shy in the future!

A few from Milford today

Posted by gduncanson in Landscape

Here are a few from a trip to Milford today, classic chrome used for Charles Island, astia/bw for the construction site beside the train station. just to share the location.

 

Re: the construction site, since getting LR I've experimented with B&W but this is the first one that I thought was decent enough to share, it's not anything to write home about, but steps I did I made sense and could be applied to another image. The gantry crane is about the yellow/blue complimentary color, that's all.

How do I print a photo that is 8x4.5?

Yesterday, 06:33 PM

Posted by M2014D in General X Camera Forum

Hi,

 

I'm still a beginner with printing photos. I have a photo (below) that is in the aspect ration 16x9. For the actual print, I would like it to be 8x4.5 (have the size). A photo place I found says they do custom print sizes. What file do I give them, or how do I actually get my 16x9 photo to print as a 8x4.5? Do I just hand them they JPEG and they will figure it out if I tell them?

 

I'm confused with this a bit, so perhaps I'm not being clear in my question, but hopefully someone can help out.

Wired remote for X100T and X-T1

Yesterday, 04:30 PM

Posted by trakmasterrs in X100, X100S and X100T Forum

Before anybody suggests using the mobile app, this doesn't work when using in BULB mode.

 

Does anybody know if both of these camera utilizes the same remote via the mic port?  I know the USB mic works on both but I currently have the remote via the mic port on my X-T1.  Before I forcefully shove this into my X100T, is this suppose to work?  I couldn't find anything on Google regarding the mic remote on the x100 series.  All searches points me towards the screw on shutter remote, mobile app remote or the USB remote.

X-T1 shutter life

Yesterday, 01:27 PM

Posted by nickruss in X-T1 Forum

Hi

 

I shoot a lot of commercial timelapses and was wondering if it is preferable to use the electronic shutter over the mechanical shutter for a camera that is getting a huge number of actuations?

 

Does the electronic shutter, by it's nature have a longer life than mechanical?

Thanks for any advice,

 

Nick

Anyone having any problems with LR CC and Fuji Files the last couple of days?

Yesterday, 01:01 PM

Posted by justbeckman in Fuji X Post Processing

The last couple of days Im having some serious issues with LR CC and my raw files.  While shooting some long exposures like I normally would the images have looked good in camera.  When I import them into LR I'm getting some serious blown out highlights.  Never had this issue up until the past 2 days.  I can't explain it at all.  Hoping someone with a little more knowledge than me can work it out.  Here is an image imported into LR and exported straight out, no tweaks whatsoever.

Instax SP-1 and X-T1 connectivity issue....

Yesterday, 12:41 PM

Posted by noeltykay in Fuji X Accessories

All of a sudden my Fuji X-T1 will not connect to my Instax printer.  The printer can connect to my phone.  I can get a wifi connection from my phone to the X-T1...but whenever I try printing directly from the camera to the printer I get this message :(

I have checked every setting on the camera.  I had gone as far to change the SSID, and then change it back.  Still no luck

 

Anyone ever experience this issue?  What was your remedy to overcome this issue?

OIS on the 55-200mm

Yesterday, 12:28 PM

Posted by 5ivesense in Fuji X-Mount Lens Forum

I'd like some opinions on the OIS on the 55-200mm lens.  I'm somewhat confused about the OIS on my rental copy of this lens; it just doesn't seem to be very effective.

 

I watched a Fuji Guys video that showed four stops of effective stabilization with the OIS, and I've read positive reports.  The rental copy I have doesn't seem to be consistent, and it's not nearly as stabilizing as I'd been lead to believe.  Is it likely just my copy or is the OIS on the 55-200mm just average?

 

I've tested it in good lighting in AF-S.

BIF with 55-200mm

Yesterday, 12:24 PM

Posted by 5ivesense in Fuji X-Mount Lens Forum

I'm renting a 55-200mm this weekend and have been impressed overall; I think it's a must-have lens to complement my 18-55mm.

 

While I don't think it's the ideal action or wildlife lens, it is nonetheless quite capable in each regard, under the right conditions.  Here are two shots of fowl in flight- they aren't amazing but I am pleased as I had to make some quick manual changes to be able to capture the images.

Ubiquitous "What should I bring" thread (Germany/Prague/Amsterdam)

Yesterday, 11:55 AM

Posted by pechelman in General X Camera Forum
I generally dislike these sorts of threads, as they always come off as being from indecisive folks, with too much gear. Put a check next to each of those for me at the moment. I think I have a plan, but looking for some insight as to how others have traveled and any thoughts on my plan. I'm headed to Germany, Prague, and Amsterdam this May for ~3 weeks and looking back to a trip of mine last year to Ireland ( http://www.fujix-for...os/#entry268195 ) I definitely want to travel a bit lighter. (we are renting a car)

To Ireland I brought a Siriu tripod (12" collapsed), X100S with a few filters, X-Pro1 with 8mm, 14mm, 27mm, 56mm, and a handful of filters, and a Flash\trigger that never got used.
Chargers for both and a bunch of batteries for both. (on 2 separate days I killed all my xpro batteries, but 2 were brand new)

I shot LOTS of IR in IReland thanks to visiting sights mid-day in a spectacularly green country, and really needed a tripod. Ireland is a different type of photo trip than the more metropolitan stays we'll be have in Munich, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam and even to the smaller Rothenburg, Dresden, Bremen, and the Mosel Valley (prob the most similar to ireland). Reflecting back, I dont think I used my tripod once in Galway, Belfast, or Dublin.

Fast forward to now. I have since added an XT1, wcl converter, 35mm, and 18mm XF. (i also have had the 60mm since day 1 that I almost never use)

I'm considering the following kit for this trip:
  • XT1, 14mm, 18mm, and 35mm
  • No filters, no tripod, no flashgun.
  • X-Pro1 for more "street shooting" thanks to the OVF....and to have ready to go with a different focal length...i hate swapping lenses

Reasoning
  • Leaving the X100S will let me carry only 1 charger\battery type, while not hugely significant, does increase the amount of gear.
  • I *think* I can get by with the 18mm+35mm over the X100S 23mm FOV. I hesitate slightly because I did use my X100S for something like ~50% of my shooting. The other ~40+% was the 14mm (lots of landscape & arch) and the remainder was shared between 56 and 8mm's.
  • While there will be some interesting IR opportunities (old churches and castles and some parks) the majority I think will be city life, cityscapes, people, and arch.
  • To me, the 18mm especially, but also the 35mm just render so nicely. I really love the color and contrast. They are super special and I'm really looking forward to using the 18mm, especially on the streets of Prague and Berlin.
Usage
  • 14mm is on specific duty to shoot interior spaces and landscapes of castles, buildings, and parks and such.
  • 18mm for walkaround city "reportage" and for night
  • 35mm same as 18mm but also for some "tele" landscape and street stuff and picking out details. (how I used the 56mm in ireland)

Specific questions;
  • Should I bring 2 NP-126 chargers? (I think I have 5 or 6 batts total). Thankfully, these batteries seem to charge in about half the time as my NP-95s', so maybe I wont need two chargers. On those couple of days that I killed all batteries, I might have had trouble the next day. Obviously this would negate some of the benefit of leaving the X100S at home.
  • Tripod; I've never "seriously shot" photos without one. I'm a slow methodical shooter so a tripod helps me step back & also get pictures of us without asking for someone to take a photo I generally dont like.Obviously using a tripod for "selfies" of my wife and I in places like Prague is probably a no-go, but for the castles and such, probably just fine. Leaving the tripod would certainly make me leave my 10stop and IR filters and also let me ditch another pound in arca grips in addition to the tripod itself.
  • Lack of 23mm FOV: I see really well in "35mm equiv" and I'm worried I'll be cropping a lot when I get home. Reviewing my Ireland photos I'm reminded at only a few instances I wish the 23mm was longer\shorter, but in 90% of the instances, zooming with my feet would have gotten the same shot minus a little perspective\distortion changes. I do not like nor want the xf23mm.
  • Tele FOV: Again, not sure if 50mm equiv is tele enough. A few shots I really enjoyed from Ireland came off the 56mm. Had I "missed them" I probably wouldnt have cared\noticed when I got home, but it did make for a nice photobook with some different perspectives mixed in.

Any thoughts on the plan? Anything you might be able to chime in with experiences to these specific places? The big question for me is tripod to be honest.
Sorry for this super long post, but thanks in advance for any opinion or insight!

If anything is clear, it's that I need to sell some stuff ...
