Fun with Advanced Filter

Yesterday, 11:19 PM

saw the sea of red , thought i will have some fun with the advance filter. :D

initially i was just taking the pic with the man in the foreground...but i thought it's pretty boring....a lady with a red umbrella came into the picture and i thought it would make the picture more interesting.

flash with face recognition and spot metering

Yesterday, 11:10 PM

Posted by myhui in X-T1 Forum
In a scene when flash is required, and I also need face recognition to aid the auto-focus, how do I get the exposure metering to use the detected face as the reference?
 
I just installed the following firmware update, but I have not tried it yet, so all my comments are with the old v1.0 firmware.
 
 

Users will be able to interlock the AF area position with the Metering area when Spot Metering mode is selected.

 
But will it work when flash is involved?
 
Using the old v1.0 firmware, the face is in perfect focus, but the exposure takes the whole scene into account. I had a bright background, with a dark face, so the final picture still had a dark face, but it was not as dark because of the flash.
 
The setting I had was inside a room with bright lights shining onto the walls, and people in the middle of the room (that I had to take a picture of) were poorly lit. So, the face recognition helped with focusing. It's amazing such darkened faces can still be picked up by the camera. But the exposure, at least with v1.0 firmware, when flash is used, is not solely based on the face, and I want it to be solely based on the face.
 
Note that spot metering is supposedly turned off when in face detection mode. At least that's true when the new feature noted above is not used.
 
The most important point is that this has to work when these three things are all on: face recognition, flash, spot metering (on the recognized face).

Hi Megapixels Cameras more finicky?

Yesterday, 10:53 PM

Posted by Yorg in General Photography Talk

I keep hearing about high mpx cameras requiring a more exacting approach in order to make use of the extra resolution.

No doubt this is true for the photos where the extra resolution will actually be used - say as large prints.

However, as I understand it, a little shake that would show up in a high mpx capture for a large print would be no more visible in a smaller print than with a lower resolution camera - if magnifications / enlargements were identical.

Would this be a correct understanding?

Test shot, 12mm f/2

Posted by macvisual in Street-City-Architecture

Recently bought a Samyang 12mm f/2 (Fuji X) fit lens, liking it so far, have hardly had a chance to shoot properly with it due to work/life getting in the way.

Here's my first test shot attached to the X-Pro1;

Absolutely crazy skies over San Francisco last night

Yesterday, 09:03 PM

Posted by denissf in Landscape

Hi all,

 

Been a bit since I've had much to share with the group.  Last evening on the way home from a great day of hiking with my kids up in Calistoga I saw that the skies - that had been full of photogenic clouds all day - were threatening and ominous above the City.  I made a mad dash up the hill and saw at least a couple hundred people watching the sunset.  

 

I admit to maybe, sorta kinda parking in a not legal fashion for about 60 seconds as I ran across the road, assessed what was going on light wise and made this photo.

 

This afternoon I noticed that SFist.com chose this photo to lead an article on their website that features several breathtaking images of the crazy storm clouds that we in the City by the Bay rarely get to see.

Firmware improvements for Street Photography with the X100T

Yesterday, 08:49 PM

Posted by Bernardo Nielsen in X100, X100S and X100T Forum

I've posted the same thing on the "Suggestions for X-Camera Updates and Improvements" Forum, but here is probably the best place for discussion and suggestions from the users:
 

I'd like to suggest some firmware improvements for the X100T that would make life a lot easier for a lot of street photographers, some of you may agree with me.

The manual focus distance ruler on the x100T is very useful, but it isn't available on the "info setting screen" on the LCD. There should be an option to have a BIG focus distance scale on the LCD info setting so the user can set a certain focus distance in anticipation of a shot, the same way we do with marked lenses.

Which brings us to the second improvement: having both the LCD and viewfinder on at the same time. The eye sensor view mode is pretty cool, but unfortunately the little time it takes to turn the viewfinder on as you bring the camera to your eyes can break a shot.

Being able to see the focus distance on the LCD (as we would on the lens markings) and then being able to bring the camera up to the eyes and quickly compose a shot is the simplest way to take spontaneous pictures on the streets. It's been done for decades, and Fuji has all of the ingredients to put this formula to use, but for some reason, the way the x100T software is right now, it's not possible to shoot this way.

Is there any hope that Fuji might hear me on this and think about all of us that want to be a little bit more like Garry Winogrand? =)

Diffusion Filters

Yesterday, 08:35 PM

Posted by thomasscott in X100, X100S and X100T Forum

Appreciate any input you folks can provide me.

I'm impressed with the portrait potential of my X100T, particularly with the TLC.

Back in the old days, I used a diffusion filter on my film camera's portrait lens - 100 mm - with great effect. Would anyone recommend for or against a Tiffen BDFX1 Black Diffusion Filter on my TLC?

Also, am I correct in assuming that filters with higher numbers - 4 vs 1 - produce stronger effects than filters with lower numbers - 1 vs 4?

Thanks.

Add me to the X100T fanclub!

Yesterday, 07:09 PM

Posted by ep2002 in Members - Introductions

I got the obligatory email once I joined after lucking on this forum on and off for about 2 year ever since the original X100 came out.  I finally took the plunge a few weeks ago and purchased the X100T.

What can I say, I'm in love.  Coming from using a Nikon D7000 to the Fujifilm is a bit of a learning curve and I still have a ways to go learning the ins and outs.

Currently I'm trying to figure out how to break into the higher ISO range past 6400 on this camera.  I'm not sure how often I'll shoot there, but it's one of many things I want to learn on this.

Anyways, I'll stop babbling now and just wanted to post a quick hello to everyone here on the forums.  Looking forward to learning from ya'll and hopefully providing some insight myself from time to time.

Thanks!

First Adapted Lens Pentax Super-Takumar 50 1.4

Yesterday, 07:00 PM

Posted by fuji_X_marks_the_shot in Adapted Lens Forum

I recently got my first old lens that i have adapted to the Fuji XT1,  its a M42 mount Pentax Super-Takumar 50 1.4  I am really digging the lens, just getting use to manual focusing has been a real challenge but a fun one.  I received the lens on Friday and decided to shoot a show at a local venue on Saturday with the lens. It was a fun time, it seems to have some intense chromatic aberrations with the lighting and shooting at 1.4 but they looked great in b/w hopefully ill get better with nailing focus.  Thanks for looking!  Also on a side note whats the best way to post pictures i have been using the gallery but you have to click on the photos to see them full sized?

Cactus Detail No 2

Yesterday, 06:15 PM

Posted by kolbphoto in Landscape

My second attempt to capture some details of the cactus, I used the 56mm again.  I used ACR and Photoshop for the simple processing.  I have tried other developers, but ACR seems to give me what I am after, so far all my work has been toned black and white prints on matt paper.

Pennsylvania Train Museum - Rokinon 8mm and Fuji 14mm

Yesterday, 05:12 PM

Posted by BillC-PA in General

It's been a long hard winter, and I haven't been out much to photography much of anything.  I decided to go to a local photo meet-up last weekend at the Pennsylvania Train Museum in Strasburg, PA. I mostly used the Rokinon 8mm on the X-T1 and the Fuji 14mm on the X-E2.

Socks and chatter

Yesterday, 04:55 PM

Posted by montymo in Street-City-Architecture

This was a fun photograph to take (make???)

I liked a lot about the setting. The first thing that caught my eye were her socks. I liked that she was intently looking at her computer. I also liked the people in the background.

Now, how to take the picture and not disturb things? I used a Zack Arias trick. I walk right up to her, maybe within four feet. I did not look at her. I looked up at the second story balcony above her. While looking up I raised my camera and pretended to take a picture. I lower the camera and look at the screen as if I was reviewing the picture. I shook my head in disgust as I snapped a few pictures of her. Then I looked up and "took a few more pictures" then I looked at the camera screen and snapped a few more pictures of my real subject. I did this three or four times. I never looked at the girl directly, only through the back of the camera. 

 


I walked away and resisted the temptation to look at her.

When I got home and reviewed the pictures, not one photograph was of her looking at me. It helped that I had my camera set to use the electronic shutter, not the mechanical one. The camera was dead silent.

Success!

Monty
