Hello from Hampshire, UK

Today, 08:32 AM

Posted by Rustiebin in Members - Introductions

Hi All,

 

I've just moved across to the world of Fuji having been a dedicated (and very happy) Pentax user for 5 years. The lure of a lightweight, massively capable camera body proved irresistable in the end, so made the switch to a Fuji X-E2. Well actually have the X-A1 as well but only bought it for the dual lens deal. Plan to sell the X-A1 body, only trouble is, i love it. In some ways more than the X-E2. And the standard cmos sensor is superb, i can't see any difference with X-Trans II.

Anyway, so far loving Fuji life. There's a few things i'm missing about the K5 but on the whole love the X-E2 and X-A1.

 

I'm not an experienced photographer. Dabbled since i was 13 but didn't take it up seriously until 30 years later. So only have 2 years of trying hard to learn the hobby. So much to learn and take in.

 

Hmm i think that's it. Just wanted to say hello before posting on the forum.

Review: Novoflex BALPRO T/S with Fujifilm X-T1 and Fujinon-EX enlarger lenses

Today, 06:58 AM

Posted by ohm in X-T1 Discussion

14786825311_b6210c5308_o.jpg

 

In part 1 of my review of the Novoflex BALPRO T/S, I look at the images taken by the X-T1 and the stability of the system for stacking. Parts 2-4 should come at a clip of once per week (if not otherwise too busy)

 

I finally completed part 1 of what I hope will be a helpful article for those looking for a bellows system to replace, or complement their macro or tilt/shift lenses/system. As you may or may not know, I am a full-time audiophile photographer based in Tokyo. I shoot for magazines, boutique shops, large and small manufacturers. 

 

Earphones are to me jewellery. For review I don't bother with anything but technical stuff, so please forgive the rudeness of the photography. Please instead note the spirit in which the photos were taken.

 

And the growing love for the BALPRO T/S. It is a valid system for those looking to one-up the macro-ability of their T/S system, or merely to try out lens moving systems. Enlargement lenses are inexpensive and super-duper sharp, if, as is seen in the Fujinon-EX series, poorly made, and in need of massive modifications to be shoot worthy in a heavy strobe system.

 

Anyway, I used the X-T1 for all of the photos in this review (a pain, but whatever, it's just a review), but workable. I don't recommend the X-T1 for full-time or merely interested still life parties. I'll talk about that later in another review. But it worked fine and didn't put any undue stress on the BALPRO (which is quite strong and stable).

Pixel Mago - Canon ETTL Flash

Today, 06:26 AM

Posted by pllphotography in Fuji X Flash Photography

I saw news about this flash from another photography forum.

 

http://www.pixelhk.c...how.aspx?id=292

 

I know it's a Canon ETTL flash, but can still be used in manual mode. What I thought was neat about the flash is the LED video light. This photographer did a review on this flash unit, and used the LED light as a modeling light! I don't know if the intensity of the light can be changed, and I doubt its power output is related to flash output like monolights, but would still be very helpful, especially when shooting in dimly lit locations.

 

http://tcphotoblog.c...4-to-8-01-2014/

 

 

Looks like the cost is roughly $80-90, which considering I spend $60+ on Yongnuo flashes, I might be willing to give these a try.

 

Just thought I'd share.

Stranger shooting (with and without TCL)

Today, 04:49 AM

Posted by pixelements in X100 and X100S Discussion

Hey folks! I had a creepy shooting last night. I had an idea of making a dark, scary and dirty shooting with a friend of mine. It wasn't that easy since I was using a flash! 

 

It was very hard to focus because we were at the basement of his house. It was completely dark there. I've found a good way how to focus: I've grabbed my iPhone and turned on the flashlight. I used one hand to  illuminate him with my iPhone, with the other hand, I've focused him with the X100S and turned off the iPhone flashlight at the same time. It wasn't that comfortable, but it worked! 

 

Here are two photos. The first one was taken with the TCL! 

 

14790715304_a8479caac8_b.jpg
 
 
And here is the second one, without TCL.
 

14770070476_85f9d58335_b.jpg
 
 
I'm still amazed by this little camera and it's image quality!

The EVF of my X-E1 is dead

Today, 04:35 AM

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

As I'm much on the road for work I have my X-E1 + 18-55mm always with me, first in a safe case and then in my backpack.

Yesterday I took the camera out to take a picture and the EVF didn't work any more.

At first I thought it was the selection button to swap between LCD/EVF that was in LCD-mode but that wasn't the case.

The eye sensor and LCD still work but the EVF stays black.

 

Last night I took the battery out for at least a hour, didn't help.

Then I did a system reset and that didn't work either.

 

Has anyone had a similar problem and what would cost it to repair?

 

Sven

My new strap from 1976! ala "Salvador" and James Woods.

Today, 02:08 AM

Posted by rpavich in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion
Since I just got done watching "Salvador" starring James Woods, I decided to check ebay for a vintage 70's strap for my X-E2.

Sure enough, they were there in abundance and cheap too.

This one was from 1976 :)

I apologize for the weird picture, I don't have a second camera to take a picture of my camera.

SilkyPix conversion

Yesterday, 09:42 PM

Posted by s3pro in X-T1 Discussion

A comparison of OOC JPEG (Fine) and RAF processed in SilkyPix (free-came with camera)

I've read with interest, a lot about which RAW converter program to use so here is my work

X-T1 and 18-55 lens, in-camera JPEG is set mainly to default. Shooting RAF+FINE jpeg

The OOC JPEG was processed to my liking using P/shop CS5 and Nik Suite filters for contrast enhancement (minor)

The SilkyPix RAF only went to P/shop for cropping and resizing for the web with my standard Action.

After many similar comparisons-I always shoot RAF+FINE JPEG, I find the end results to my liking with SilkyPix.

Tried Adobe DNG converter and CS5 but I end up with nasty artifacts.

The OOC JPEGs are so good form this camera.

Anyway, just in case someone might be interested.

Controlling a Fuji X-T1 with the Fujifilm Camera Remote WIFi APP | Tom Grill

Yesterday, 05:36 PM

Posted by Syndicated_News in Fuji World News Feed


We wanted to do a straight down lifestyle photo of a group of friends eating together at a table. This called for the camera to be located directly overhead and centered on the table, which meant there was no way for me to operate it directly or to even look in the viewfinder or LCD. I didn't want to do an elaborate setup because we had many other scenes to do that day and I didn't want to waste any time. I immediately chose the Fuji X-T1 because its light weight made it very easy to suspend over the table with a simple pole cat setup. Additionally, the Fujifilm Camera Remote APP for wireless control of the camera is one of the best I have seen. I have it on my cell phone and on my tablet, and use it for situations just like this......

And I'll do it the usual way, in the form of a list of what I like and what I don't. Ready? Go. ......

FUJINON XF 18-135mm F3.5/5.6 WR OIS - Reviewed | Sven Schroeter

Yesterday, 05:36 PM

Posted by Syndicated_News in Fuji World News Feed


Sadly, this review starts on a slightly negative note.... The first weather resistant lens released from FUJIFILM is a canon, when zoomed all the way to 135mm the lens becomes surprisingly front heavy and is sadly a little ugly, no matter which X series camera body it was slapped on (X-Pro1, X-M1 and X-T1). Also, the lens feels and looks very plastic. Unlike the prime lens lineup with all metal exterior shells, this one is made from a smooth engineered plastic, which does come across as a little cheap. The weather sealing suggests this lens is intended for the adventure enthusiast, however in our opinion, a plastic exterior does not portray rugged durability. On paper the focal length 18mm (wide) to 135mm (telephoto) looks like great value, and it is probably fair to say this lens is going to be popular for travel photographers. Although a little vulgar, it is more affordable than stocking a range of primes to get the equivalent coverage........
