Nikon D lens using Fotodiox adapter on X-E1

Today, 02:00 AM

Posted by bestefar in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion

I'm seeing different results on line with instructions on how to use the D (with aperture ring) lenses with adapters. I have a Fotodiox adapter that is good for both G and D lenses. I'm currently using it with the Nikon 85mm 1.8 g lens and it's simple. Just attach the two things together. The only limitation is the Fotodiox's four-click aperture adjustments. I do have several D lenses that have the aperture ring. In some posts I have found on line, I see directions that you should stop DOWN the Fotodiox, other places, you keep it WIDE OPEN. Stopping down to the smallest aperture seems counterintuitive, as the lens does the f-stop control. Can someone please weigh in as to what is the correct option? I'm confused, and Fotodiox's support is non-existent.

New guy in North Vancouver!

Today, 12:06 AM

Posted by Freerange in Members - Introductions

Hey everybody!

 

Just thought I'd swing through and say hello.  Decided to finally get a camera after wanting one for more years than I can remember.  I've just never had the money, or the time to make it happen.  Well, the time finally came.

 

Been researching cameras for almost 2 months now (man there's a lot to learn haha) after a friend suggested I check out the Fuji X-T1.  So I did, and came across the forum during my information hunt.  I can't tell you enough what a great source of information you have going on here.  

 

Like I said, after doing a whole bunch of research, I just put a pile 'o' cash down on the Fuji X-T1 with the 23mm lens,  Should have it payed off at the end of this month.  I also decided to get the MHG-XT large grip as I felt I wanted a bit more in my hand.  Hopefully it feels good, as no one had it in stock for me to check out.  All I need now are a few more lenses, several batteries, and a couple of flashes.  Haha ohhh geez...what's happening?! 

 

I'll be shooting mostly street photograpy and buildings.  I will also be taking photos of bmx and mountain bike riding as I do alot of that myself.  Considering I live where the mountains meet the city, I'm sure to get the odd nature shot here and there as well.

 

Anyhow, like I said, first ever camera, can't wait!  All I need to do is figure out how to use it haha.  Looking forward to posting some images, and getting some feedback.

 

Thanks!

 

J.L. aka Freerange

Making a Film Border with free borders on the Net in PS

Yesterday, 09:09 PM

Posted by Arbib in Fuji X Post Processing

A few days ago, I was reading here, where a member was looking to make a film border for their photos.

Well, I found 50 film borders to play around with in Photoshop.

I opened up a photo to frame, and a frame I wanted to apply to it. But, I had a problem, there were no transparent areas and I was stomped for a little bit

 

After thinking about it for a while, I knew I had to erase the area I wanted to be transparent. Then I also remembered, that I needed to use a "mask" on the frame image to make it work.

 

I also had to resize the frame to have it fit over my photo. (I just used the long side pixels of my photo as my long side for the frame)..

  1. Open a photo
  2. Open a frame
  3. resize the frame to the long side of the photo
  4. Rotate the frame 900 if needed
  5. Add a mask to the frame
  6. Select the "Quick Selection" tool, and set between 10-25
  7. move the selection tool over the inside area to select it.
  8. fine tune if needed,. by selecting the "+" icon for the tool, and add the areas you want.
  9. You can subtract also with the "-" icon for the tool
  10. Now use the "eraser" tool to erase the selected area
  11. From the Menu Bar, "Select"/All
  12. From the Menu Bar "Edit"/Copy Merged
  13. now click on you open photo
  14. From the Menu Bar "Edit"/Special Paste/Paste in place
  15. DONE!
  16. See Video below
  17. Park the cursor so the title disappears from hiding the  menu bar in the video.  It is a bit choppy... it is my first Video Screen Capture... after 3 tries, this was the best.

Making the switch to xt-1?

Yesterday, 08:29 PM

Posted by Juliene in X-T1 Discussion

Hi everyone!

 

I'm contemplating upgrading my gear (currently owner of a canon 7d and a fuji x100). Initially I was considering upgrading to a fullframe body (something like 6d) however, I'm very disappointed with the specs so lately I've been researching alternatives and turned to xt-1. I have the x100 which I love. It gives beautiful files and is real easy to use and from what I understand the xt-1 is a major upgrade from x100. However, I do have some doubts switching to a new system for my main camera and one question that I hope you can answer: Off camera flash. Currently I have an 430ex ii for my Canon which I can use as a slave with the on camera flash. Is there any similar alternatives for fuji? Are there radiotriggers I can by which allows me to continue using my 430ex ii?

Sticky aperture blade problem

Yesterday, 07:09 PM

Posted by Tectomoc in Troubleshooting

 think I put myself into a tough spot.

This Friday I met with a seller from Craigslist to purchase a used x100. The camera looked to be in great condition, it was focusing quickly and I took some quick exposures in P mode and they seemed pretty good. One or two were slightly overexposed but I chalked it up to user error. We were in a coffee shop so of course the photos that turned out were shot at or around f2. Everything looked to be in good shape so I handed over the cash and went on my way.

Everything was not in good shape. The seller seemed respectable but i should have definitely done more research and paid more attention. He gave me the wrong USB cable. The warranty and purchase receipt were not included with the other paperwork and boxes. And most distressingly now that I've had time today to properly test my new camera I'm certain it is suffering from the sticky aperature blade issue. I can inspect the blade visually and see they are not closing and anything above f2 becomes increasingly overexposed. 

I sent an email to Fuji asking what my options are. I've done some googling on the problem and it is my understanding that Fuji charges 140 for the repairs but only if you have the original purchase receipt. Even this is difficult for me to swallow. I waited several years for the price of this camera to come down to a level I am able to afford. I've seen people posting that repairs for this can be over 600 dollars if paying the full price. That's definitely more than I can afford. I'm hoping some forum members here will be more knowledgeable about the problem and I would appreciate any information ya'll have on what my options may be going forward.

If it helps the serial number on my camera is 14A00080.

Thank you very much!

Hi from Florida Panhandle

Yesterday, 05:03 PM

Posted by aslondon in Members - Introductions

Just thought I'd take a few minutes to introduce myself.  I'm obviously new to this site and to Fuji!  I had been a Nex7 user for a short while and when photographing some vintage car races, the Nex's shortcomings became evident.  I then moved to a Canon 70D and quickly to a X100S and an x-e2 with 18-55 (that is still on the way to me). The X100S reminded of my Leica my m2, m3, m4, m5's days from the 70's and the X100S felt that good.

 

I now have a learning curve again and haven't enjoyed a camera this much in years.

Wide angle for Timelapses/Star photos

Switched over from Canon 5D3 and need a wide angle that I can use for timelapses and star photos. I was looking at the Rokinon 12mm f/2 but am not sure how sharp this lens is. Also what is everyone else using?

New (to me) X100S - First impressions.

Yesterday, 04:21 PM

Posted by Mr. Pick in X100, X100S and X100T Discussion

I tend to be a trailing edge technology kind of guy, so I just bought a well cared for X100S.  Been wanting an X100 since they first came out, but was always concerned the fixed 35mm perspective would bug me.  But, desire won out and the new girl arrived yesterday just minutes before we left for a tailgate and evening football game. 

 

So here's my first impressions, which I'm sure are quite typical and have been expressed a hundred times before:

 

1.  After years of SLR's and DSLR's, the first thing I kept thinking was, "did it take a shot??"  I took two or three exposures the first few times I took a picture because it is so quiet and smooth I didn't think it had taken the shot.  No mirrors clanking and banging and shaking the camera - quite disconcerting at first, but I soon came to love the absence of noise.

 

2.  The fixed 35mm perspective was far less limiting than I thought it would be.  In fact, it was almost liberating.  No decisions over which lens to use or what focal length to dial in - just look in viewfinder, move around to find a nice composition, and fire.  I kinda liked it!

 

3.  Wonderful to carry around as opposed to my DSLR.  Fit in the hand warmer pocket of my hoodie - with room left over for my hands.

 

4.  Images and color were by in large very nice.  I shot jpegs this time since I was just getting used to the dials and menus.  Exposure in the various auto modes was generally pretty good, but I'm old enough to think I know better than the camera does, so I ended up back on manual mode by the evening's end.

 

5.  Focus took a little getting used to.  I set it to the middle box and set the AE/AF lock button to AF only, which is what I'm used to on my Canons, and it did pretty good.  I still ended up with a few missed focuses - probably pilot error.

 

6.  OVF and EVF view finders are both very nice, but I did find I preferred the OVF in most instances, though it's nice to have the EVF for up close and certain other situations.

 

7.  And lastly, I had more fun shooting than I have in years!    This is a well built instrument that fits nicely in the hand and is just a joy to use.  I think this one will be around a while.

Delicious caramel filled brownies; not so good photo.

Yesterday, 02:17 PM

Posted by rpavich in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion

Well, I made some really tasty brownies (caramel filled) today and thought I'd take a shot before consuming one.

 
I wasn't watching the laptop close enough and didn't realize that the brownie wasn't arranged very well and the front part of the cookie is blurry and very distracting...darn!
 
Normally I'd sacrifice a brownie or two to get a better shot but I'm just not in the mood today.
 
But...I'm not having another one so this is it for the pictures.
 
I'm including a set up shot; this is my normal M.O. for food shots; key to the 9 or 10 pm position; a reflector or two, and tethered to laptop via Eye Fi card. I generally shoot these types of shots at f/4 and I metered this one with my Sekonic meter.
 
I used my 60mm f/2.4 lens on my X-E2.

Will see what happens......

I figure once I am set-up on my wife's beads, I really won't need to adjust much, as I use a tripod, and it will let me push the beads back into the lighting more, alleviating some of the darkness in the eyes on some of them, or that is my hope, hate to think I wasted 8 bucks  :growl:
