Full-time pro from Lapland introducing.

Today, 03:34 AM

Posted by Kaapu in Members - Introductions

Hi,

 

I've been in photography business for four years now.

I use to use Canon pro gear, but I changed to Fuji 6 months ago.

It wasn't easy and I've been doubting, but since I got the 50-140mm I feel

safe. Still waiting for the 16-55mm.

 

I do weddings, photojournalism, advertisments and lot of other things.

Fuji can do all these and I'm satisfied.

 

If you want to give some support to fellow Fuji-shooter I would be

thankful if you find time to visit my facebook-page and maybe website.

 

Sorry, the pages are only in finnish at the moment. Working for english.

 

https://www.facebook...okuvaaja?ref=hl

http://juhakauppinen.com/

 

Current gear - XT-1, Samyang 12mm, 18-55mm, 23mm, 27mm, 56mm, 50-140mm, 55-200mm.

 

Satisfied customer. I did the opening ceremony of winter testing facility in Finland, Lapland, with 23mm and 56mm last week.

Contest Question

Yesterday, 09:50 PM

Posted by photome09 in General Photography Talk

Hi, Folks...actually, not sure if I can ask this question in this forum as it does not relate to fuji, so I apologize to the Admin in advance.

 

I am reluctant to join the contest because part of the rule says that the entry submited must be with the permission of the subject or subjects.

 

I took a picture during a photography expo. As in any photography expo, vendors hire models to promote their products and models pose for their pics to be taken.

 

My question is, can I still join the contest without the permission of the model & or photogrpahy expo organizers or sponsors? I just took a quick snap of the model & didn't realize that it was actually a nice shot after all.

 

I would really appreciate inputs, especially from those who have had experience in photography competitions or judging photo competitions who are knowleageable of contest rules such as the rule I mentioned above.

 

Thanks in advance & sorry to the Admin if this is off the rules.

With or without glasses?

Yesterday, 07:21 PM

Posted by dixeyk in X-E1 and X-E2 Forum
I am finding that I am able to use the X-E1's EVF to manually focus without my glasses. I need glasses for anything nearby but focus peaking makes it easier to nail the focus that I would have thought. I'm a bit surprised but certainly wouldn't mind being able to shoot without my glasses. Anyone else find this to be the case?

Walking around the inner courtyard at Mission San Juan Bautista I noticed the window and wanted to include some of the cactus, I had to do a little cropping to get the right feel for size.  The more I use the 56mm lens the more it seems to be one of the best lenses I have used.

Bulb

Yesterday, 03:24 PM

Posted by Activatedfx in Still Life

A few still life macro's of a cool looking halogen bulb I found in the closet. Lit with a very bright LED flashlight pointed at a translucent sea-glass green tiled backsplash in my kitchen. The overhead cabinets and walls provided near-perfect edges and reflections. The XF60 continually blows my mind with it's sharpness and gorgeous OOF rendering, and the X-E2 is nearly noiseless at ISO 800.

 

X-E2 and XF60mm macro. ISO 800 at f/2.4. Lightroom processed with my own settings plus a light color shift via the VSCO Film 06 cross-processed set (Prescia 100XP).

18-55 vs 18-135 for iceland, and do I need to go wider?

Yesterday, 02:31 PM

Posted by Labenge in Fuji X-Mount Lens Forum

I'm going to Iceland in September and plan to buy a X-T1 because I'd like more versatility than the X100S I already own.  Although I could probably do just fine with the X100S because I'm not going there on a photography project - I just like to take pictures when I travel.  Still, I think it would be good to have something wider for landscapes.  

 

I figure that since there are rebates right now (in Canada), I should seriously consider getting the X-T1 and the 18-135 WR lens for that versatility.  I may get the 35 1.4 as well  (It's a habit for me to pick up a fast standard lens, and the 35 has something nice about it). 

 

You general input would be appreciated.

  • Is 18-135 a bit on the big side?  Would I be just as well served with the 18-55 (especially as its faster for use indoors). I can probably do without weather sealing on the lens - although it seems a shame to bring bags with me to cover the lens on a weather sealed camera in the rain/mist
  • Does the 18-135 focus as fast as the 18-55?
  • Is 18 wide enough for the sweeping landscapes I expect to see in iceland?  Not that I want a 16-55mm 2.8 -- which sounds like a fine lens but it's expensive and massive from what I can see. 
  • I could buy a separate wide lens (a prime or the 10-24 zoom). I'm not absolutely on a budget, my I'm not so comfortable that spending close to $1000 on a wide lens is an easy choice to make.  The Samyang 12 f2 is cheaper, but much wider than anything I've used before and I may find it hard to use (horizons etc).  The widest I've shot is 24mm FF equivalent on my old LX3. it was a fun focal length.

 

I really appreciate any feedback.

Surprised with the 23mm's ability to shoot portraits

Yesterday, 12:29 PM

Posted by hendodesign in Fuji X-Mount Lens Forum

I recently picked up a 23mm and sold off my 35mm which was my first portrait centric lens. I have always heard of the 23mm being a great walk around street lens and I have to say that it has been amazing at that so I was surprised to see perform really well in my little office studio as well. I set up a single speed light and softbox and let my son shoot some pics of his brother and dad, and was very impressed with both the sharpness and color rendering from this lens. I did some small adjustments in capture one 8, and added a little clarity for contrast. But overall really impressed with the flexibility of the lens so far. It's nice to have another portrait option alongside my 56mm—especially when I thought I was forfeiting that by selling the 35mm.

I have this little Olympus FL-20 flash that I use on my XE-2, in Manual mode, and it works beautifully. But it won't work on my XT-1. Neither will my Nikon Speedlight SB-600. Am I doing something wrong, or are they just incompatible?

Hello world - from h.hieu

Yesterday, 09:37 AM

Posted by h.hieu in Members - Introductions

Warmest greetings to everyone.

 

I am h.hieu. You can call me h2 for short. I am currently a student in Viet Nam. I have recently made my first camera purchase, and it is my beloved Fuji X-E1 with its original 18-55mm lens kit. I take pictures as a hobby, and since I have just started for a few week, there are definitely loads of things to learn. I am looking forward to share my creations with everyone and hopefully learn more on the way :D

 

It would be great if you could drop by my Flickr stream and leave some comment if possible. Any opinion, advice or criticism is welcomed.

 

Cheers.

I'm Lindsey, amateur photographer that has been using DSLR's for years but have grown weary of carrying a ton of equipment on travel.  I've been ogling the X100T for several months and finally made the purchase yesterday.  The Forum has already helped me solve a flash issue, so prompted me to sign up and join the fray.

 

Now on to why Lightroom won't recognize my RAW extension from the FUJI. . .

18/27/35 compared to WCL/X100/TCL

Yesterday, 07:24 AM

Posted by Fwestivus in Fuji X-Mount Lens Forum

So as part of the endless churn of my camera collection thanks to the demands of GAS, I'm having yet another rethink about my setup...

 

Has anyone got opinions/experience of using these camera/lens combinations? I was doing some back-of-match-packet calculations and it seems like an X100S and the two converters works out slightly cheaper than the three lenses, with the added bonus of being semi-pocketable without the converters, and having pretty killer AF. Plus I miss my X100 - it's why I got my X-Pro1

 

I'd be interested to head what people think!

Peak Design Leash

Yesterday, 06:30 AM

Posted by michaelryancaputo in Fuji X Accessories

Just wanted to make a quick post about a wrist strap that I recently picked up: the Peak Design Leash.

 

They base their design around this small circular puck to lock into various accessories, wrist strap, shoulder strap, hand strap and some others. I was looking for a strap that I could use with my cameras (X100T and Xt1) and had planned on picking up two of the same. When I found the Leash and saw that it came with two of these puck attachments connected to the end of of a loop I was a bit worried that I wouldn't like the connection mechanism to the strap, but I have to say that it's fantastic. Alternatives to this system that i've seem are the plastic squeeze clips which always make me nervous because of potential accidental squeezing. The Peak Design system is great because you actually have to squeeze the release clip which is made from aluminum or some kind of metal, and slide it out - in the case of the leash, the opposite direction that the camera would be hanging.

 

I haven't been paid by Peal Design, and have no affiliation, just wanted to post this here to give anyone looking for a wrist strap my impressions of the Leash. I plan to look into their other straps that they offer as I really think that the connection system they have made is really smart.

 

Here's a link to amazon for the leash
