16-55 and 50-140 lens caps

Yesterday, 10:59 PM

i really like these new flat lens caps. They are flat and are much easier to handle. Anyone knows their part numbers and are they available for purchase separately? I'd like to replace the existing 10-24 cap as it is the same 72mm diameter as 50-140.

50-140 OIS is amazing!

Yesterday, 10:51 PM

Testing out the 50-140 image stabilization at a conference I was at the other day.  With my Canon L-series 70-200 I can hand hold (@200mm) down to 1/30sec leaning on a wall & holding breath.  I tried that today with the Fuji and did fine so I kept dropping the shutter speed.  This was taken standing (not leaning) @ 1/8sec.  You can actually see the OIS kick in when you tap the shutter.  Pretty impressive!

Fuji X Pro 1 for adapted lenses?

Yesterday, 10:48 PM

Posted by dixeyk in Adapted Lens Forum
I hear from so many folks how the X Pro 1 is far and away their favorite X body camera. Why is it so loved and how well would it work for adapted lenses? I currently use an X-E1 and it works reasonably well. I find peaking to be problematic but I have developed enough strategies to work with it that I manage reasonably well. How do X Pro 1 owners find that they work with adapted lenses? Better with something like an X-E2?

Portrait of a friend

Yesterday, 09:44 PM

Andrew Ottenhof from The Foundry Tattoo commissioned me to do some portraits for promo material and his website. This is just a sneak peek of what's to come. Andrew and I went to high school together and he has also done a few pieces of art on my arms that I absolutely love!

 

...and who said the 18mm f/2.0 wasn't a good lens? It's small, it's sharp and it is a tool that got me the image I was after!

Focus Error?

Yesterday, 09:32 PM

Posted by ian66 in X100, X100S, X100T

I just received my X100T in the mail yesterday and I am in the process of learning my way around the camera - love the build quality.   However, I keep getting a 'Focus Error' sign and the camera locks up.  I have no filter attached and it happens intermittently - perhaps more often when close up - it has even happened when moving the m/s/c switch - could it be one of my settings is awry? I can't seem to find a pattern here.

Wisdom's Teeth

Yesterday, 09:27 PM

Going through my back catalog and I came across this one. I can't tell what to make of it. I don't know if we ever settled on whether or not an intro was necessary, but I'm just going to post this one

 

[redacted - spoiler alert]  ...I will give back story later, if requested.

I'm interested to know if this shot "works". Does it seem too "GWC"? Does it evoke any particular emotion? Is it bothersome or pleasing? Please respect the rule of not commenting about a model's appearance. Other than that, I'm open to any positive or negative things anyone has to say, so long as they are constructive.

 

Have at it, I guess.

It's been a long time since I posted on this forum, but maybe it's time to get back involved. Just spend a few weeks in the land-of-the-long-white-cloud (actually my 22nd trip there) and put the X-T1/18-55 through it's paces. Although I've had it now for about 15 months, I'm still somewhat disappointed with the focussing. However I've upgraded the firmware to 4.0 last night so hopefully things will improve dramatically from now on.

Janae...blue eyes

Yesterday, 09:13 PM

My oldest daughter.  This one was taken with my X-E2 and adapted Helios 44-2.  PP in Lightroom.  Forgive me for I had posted this and the others in the adapted lens forum awhile back but I enjoyed revisiting them myself.  Trying to convince myself that I'm fine with my adapted lenses and I don't need a 56 1.2 or the 50-140 for my portraiture.

Food photography for a new restaurant

Yesterday, 08:25 PM

I have an opportunity to do some food shots for a new restaurant opening up near me.  The owner would like to use the images for his social media, website, and online menu.  I have no such experience and will likely work “on trade.”  That said, I welcome any general and specific pointers anyone can offer me. As I’m likely to shoot RAW + JPEG (probably using the JPEG), I’ll choose between my D610 and Fuji XT-1. If I use the XT-1, I may use the film simulation bracket, so I can shoot 3 different shots and choose based on the best color/tone rendition. The on-going sessions are likely to be shot in natural light, but I’m open to suggestions regarding a small studio set up.

 

Additionally, if I was to charge for the service, what is an appropriate fee structure?  Hourly?  By the job?

 

Thanks for any pointers!

Missing Old James

Just missing old James... He has 18 months left on his church mission.

He is having a great time serving others and learning more about the eternities.

Can't wait to photograph our son again! ;)

Konica Hexanon 40/1.8 (just not wide open)

remember the old neighborhood? by kevin dixey, on Flickr

 

I've always like this lens and one of the knocks I hear about it constantly is that it's not sharp wide open...and it's not. I prefer to think of it as a 40/2.8 and then I'm MUCH more satisfied with it.

Xf 50-140

Yesterday, 06:59 PM

Wow this thing is massive! But I think I have decided to keep it the image quality is insane so far as I can tell it pretty much matches my primes! Can someone give me some advice as to how you carry this thing right now I'm just using the tripod collar as a handle. I can't imagine hanging this thing from a shoulder trap.

Is XT1 better at high ISO's than the XPro1?

Yesterday, 05:09 PM

I shot an event on sunday, indoors with the 27mm on the X-Pro1.  I really needed to use that focal length, I really needed to shoot at at least f2.8 but would have preferred f4. I ended up exposing 400 frames in an hour and a half which I edited down to 85 and processed then sent them off. In the past I would have lit it and had to shoot it very differently. I like where I'm going with this, I moved around a lot, quietly and casually and I really enjoyed the perspective I got with that lens. I have a lot of experience so I'm quite comfortable with what I'm saying.  Yes the 6400 was better than I used to get with my older Canon cameras, by a lot. But I could have used at least a stop better quality. I expect I'll be doing more of this and I enjoy it. I've given up waiting for an XPro2 and what that may or may not mean which is all a guess. I don't want a faster lens for this and I don't want a wider or shorter lens. I'm going to stick with what I have probably, but maybe not. Does the X-T1 or the X100T (which is almost the same focal length) have lower noise and better resolution at 6400 than the X-Pro1?
