XF 18-135mm - remembering the Aberfan disaster

Today, 09:19 AM

Posted by nickruss in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

I took delivery of an 18-135mm bought through Fuji UK with the £250, so it was a good deal! Today was a stormy day as the remains of hurricane Gonzalo pass over the UK and I found myself in the South Wales valleys, near the town of Aberfan. Today was the anniversary of when 116 children and 28 adults were killed when a coal tip slid down the hillside into school.

 

The weather proofing of the lens came in handy, and the image stabilisation is extremely impressive. I like the sharpness and colour rendition of this lens and can see that it will be a handy one stop shop to take on days out or doing outdoor activities where changing lenses will be less desirable. Enjoy my post on Exposure at http://blog.nickruss...berfan-disaster

Recommendation for an adapted 24mm lens

Today, 09:16 AM

Posted by marysky in Adapted Lens Discussion
Unless someone is selling their Fuji 23mm crazy cheap, I do not have the funds for a 35 fov lens. Yes, I have the X100S, but if I'm shooting a party with my flash on the flash bracket on my X-E2, it woulf be great to have a 24mm lens.

What can you guys recommend?

Gordy's Camera Straps on the X100s, X-T1, and a7r: a review

Today, 07:04 AM

Posted by ohm in Fuji X Accessories

15592541752_d2ecefffe3_o.jpg

 

I've had three straps from Gordy's Camera Straps now for about 3 months. They are leather, they take a beating, and they are comfy. Expect great things from them. 

 

I wrote a somewhat lengthy post about them at ohm image. You will find other information, thoughts, and images illustrating usage there.

 

If not, here's a copy/paste of most of what I wrote about each model:

 

Wrist Strap

 
Evidently, wrist straps are popular. They're easy to use, and light. They don't get in the way. But I simply don't get why or how anyone would opt for one. Most are gawd-awful paddy things. Gordy's is different. It's a simple mash of leather and twine and steel. The leather is thick, the steel is hard and isn't prone to chip or dent. If you want, you can add an extra leather tag to protect your camera.
 
It is strong. After about a week with it I got into the habit of letting whatever camera I had attached to it just dangle. When it came time to shoot, flipping the camera up into the palm is as easy as it is quick. As my most-used camera and lens combo is the Fujifilm X-T1 Speedbooster, I reckon this is a worst-case front-heavy scenario. If nothing else, the constant flipping of the camera from dangle to eye has ground to powder portions of my ulna and radius. (I'll see a doctor about that.)
 
But just to be sure, I dangled myself from a tree by the wrist strap. Both the tree and the strap held up extremely well. I now have stretch marks below my right wrist.
 
The Sling
 
Headfi's beefy admins, Sean Chan, and Amos Barnett, use slings. They have muscles out to their ears. I do not. And my cameras are generally much smaller than theirs. Ditto my lenses. The idea of a camera sling came from watching them clack away with their D3s and D800s.
 
Gordy gave some helpful advice, which I followed. My sling is cut to drop about hip-length on my trim 184cm long body.
 
At first, packing a camera at the hip forced me to swagger a bit to the left; I wanted to keep the camera close to my right hip. The sling mounts to the camera via a pretty hefty steel bolt. That bolt is tightened very simply by a large, flat turn screw. The screw does not lock. The leather thong around the bolt rotates freely, relieving most of the desire the bolt may have to unlock. Still, I wouldn't feel comfortable rocking a D4 or D800 setup from the Gordy sling. The X-T1 or X100S were made for it.
 
And when shooting models and places for audio product placement, I used it more than any other strap. Why? Because I could hold a reflector or nudge a light and still have a free hand to bring the camera up to my eye without yoga. That is why slings exist.
 
Of course, none of my interchangeable lenses are AF, so once the camera got to the right spot, I sometimes had to do an awkward jiggle to make sure that my subject was sharp enough.
 
 
The horizontal strap
 

While the horizontal strap concedes flexibility on the job, it feels so much better agains the body, or when out on a date. And Gordy's horizontal neck strap retains all the leather goodness and strength of the other straps, but sits more naturally on the body. I opted for a neck pad, but don't think it's necessary. Mainly, I keep the featherlight Fujifilm X100S attached to it. The combo is perfect.

This strap will go down to replace numerous straps which I have purchased all across Asia, North America, and Sweden. And despite being leather, it costs roughly the same as an off-market strap from a respectable maker. 

I hope the images I took will help show how these straps can be used. If you have any questions, please ask away.

Nighttime photography

Today, 04:42 AM

Posted by jetstacker in Fuji X Photos

Playing with my Fujifilm X-E2 and 18-55 at 22 mm. Like nighttime shots with nice lights, but a lot of the lights kind of blur out and are not as defined as I would like. Are there any tips for this kind of photography? This was shoot with iso 200, F 8 and 30 seconds. Didn't have much time that night to experiment, so that's why I'm asking for some tips :) This i Jpg form the camera. I've got a Raw file too to play with.

iMac for photo editing, help me to decide

Today, 04:41 AM

Posted by Lukai in General Photography Talk

Now that my PC is definitely old, or better "antique"  :) , I'm thinking to replace it with something more in line with our times. Some days ago the new iMac with retina display appeared, and I went crazy for it. I saw it in a local store and ..... speechless !

 

But before to decide what to do, I would like to hear from those of you that are already using an iMac to work with photos (I mainly use Lightroom, PaintShop X6, Nik Software and definitely NO GAMES).

Is it worth ? Is it enough powerful ?  Is it worth the price ? Is it hard to work with it ?

 

Please, help me to decide. Thank you all in advance  :thumbsu:

X30 case

Today, 03:39 AM

Posted by luiceg in Fuji X Accessories

Hi all! I recently adquired an X30 and I'm starting to read the forums so I can take part of this great community.

 

I'm trying to find a case for the X30, but after a month I still didn't find any. The fuji LC-X30 leather case is out of stock in almost all online stores. I've tried an X20 case with my camera, but it just didn't fit (the X30 is sightly bigger). Anyone found some third-parties cases for the X30? I'm interesed in something that looks like the LC-X30.

 

Thanks in advance!

Why I even got a camera.......

Yesterday, 09:10 PM

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

The reason I even do photography is because my wife bought me a little Nikon P&S and told me to take pictures of the beads she makes in the flame.....

She melts glass on to a mandrel then sculpts them into shapes and forms.

She sells them all over the world.

 

I am glad she did as I don't believe I would have ever picked up a camera other than to capture vacations, etc. It has been a real joy.

As I shared in my other thread, this camera is my first DSLR, but since its not a reflex, what do we call it?

 

Here is just one of the beads (of twenty five) I had to take after I got home from my real job. I do 3 or 4 captures of each bead, upload to a file, send them to her computer, and she puts them in her INTERNET stores.

We do this every day, and more on weekends. 

She makes new ones each night, and also has a day job......

 

I will get a macro, but for now I used my Raynox M-250 lens on my XF 35MM F1.4

DSCF1801_edited-1_zps7a57652a.jpg

 

DSCF1802_edited-1_zps60069801.jpg

 

Glass is extremely tuff for me to capture without some reflection..... I have tried all sorts of lighting, but always get some reflection, and some of her glass is metallic too, ugh 

 

Any tips, pointers, feedback most appreciated....they sell great, even with my poor representations, but I still want to try to get them better!!!!

 

BTW, the beads are about an inch tall, give or take a little.
