DicaPac WP-S3 Underwater housing

Today, 04:06 AM

Posted by bekltierney in Fuji X Accessories

Well, after tentatively purchasing the DicaPac for my X-E1 I headed over to the Solomon Islands for a brief holiday. First test was a brief swim in the sea, and the performance of the housing was as wanted. No leakage and I got some shots that would have resulted in a wet camera otherwise, and I had a test run for snorkelling. Next up, in the water with some local kids jumping in and splashing around. Snorkelling was the real reason I invested in the housing, so in we went. I made sure I thoroughly sealed the housing and then headed in. I found I couldn't get my 18-55mm lens to stay at 55mm, so the pictures weren't close up. Never mind, the quality was good. Controls are a bit tricky to change, particularly anything in the quick menu as the command dial is used and this is difficult to wind with the housing on. Next time I went in I ensured everything was set as wanted prior to putting the housing on. The lens problem was solved through using a small cloth and putting it at the front of the camera so the lens didn't get knocked and thus stayed extended at 55mm. Overall, a great little investment that allowed me to bring home some underwater photos of both fish and people. I found the DicaPac to be good value for money and functional to use. As tips, always make sure you seal the bag properly as the snap-lock seal is not waterproof otherwise. The bag was much easier to put on by taking the lens of and attaching once the body was in.

Hoping someone has a great photo shoot with this accessory.

First contact with XT1. Problem with liking the viewfinder.

Today, 03:53 AM

Posted by kneops in X-T1 Discussion

I hope some people can clarify this for me.

Yesterday I went to a local shop to see and feel the XT-1 for the first time, after reading about it for weeks.

The guy in the shop gave me the camera, I looked through the viewfinder and I was so dissapppointed... But perhaps he didn't get some settings right.

For instance, the view was so 'tv-like', a bit too much to my taste, and I couldn't see where I was focussing at.

I'm used to working with Nikon camera's, so I saw this square in the middle, pointed it somewhere, pressed the release buttons half way, and had absolutely no idea if it was focussing. No visible affirmation, no sound. I was set on autofocus though, because when I held my hand in front of the camera I could see the autofocus working, but when pointing it somewhere else, a bit further away, I was totally unsure what was happening.

 

Doesn't that square get green or something when the focussing is right? The only thing I could see getting green was the horizontal line in the middle. But when using my Nikon I can clearly see the object getting sharp when I point at it, but looking through the XT-1 viewfinder I could only guess what would become sharp :(

Posted by kneops in Members - Introductions

Hi everyone. So I'm new at this forum, although I'm looking at X-camera's for quite some time. But not decided yet on which one, therefor joined this forum. At the moment I'm working with Nikon camera's and lenses and working as a professional photographer. Mainly news and events, sometimes portraits, and for my own interest animals, nature and still life. And soon I hope to share a few pictures with you made by Fuji :).

Shutter speed range for using OIS

Today, 12:37 AM

Posted by XtJerry in About the Fuji X Forum

At what handheld speeds should IOS be used?   I always (or try to remember to) turn off IOS when on tripod.  I usually leave in on with a monopod or when hand holding for a shot.

 

As I remember with Nikon camera, the general recommendation is to turn off VR (NIkon speak for OIS) from about 1/500th or faster.

 

Is this the same with the Fuji OIS?

 

That is, is there a certain speed at the high end where OIS may cause blurring or other problems if left on?

 

Thanks, in advance

Yongnuo Enters Lens Market With Clone Of Canon 50mm F/1.4

So, the Nifty 50 can be had even cheaper :cool:

This is an interesting development. will they clone they clone other "fast glass"?

 

here is a snip...

I also recently read a bit about how only Japanese companies can get AF licenses for EF and F mount from Canon and Nikon (partly why Zeiss has no AF lenses for those systems) yet, Zeiss has AF Fuji X lenses! Unless Cosina makes it... but, I have only seen MF lenses from Cosina for Zeiss in the Leica M mount.

A bit of Fall Colors and Long Exposure with my X-T1, X-Pro 1 & Mamiya RZ67 Pro ii

Yesterday, 04:35 PM

Posted by justbeckman in Fuji X Photos

Went out today for a bit before and after a physical therapy appt.  The following images were shot with My X-T1 & XPro1 as well as my Mamiya RZ67 Pro ii on Kodak Portra 400.  Lenses used on the Fuji's were:  XF56mm, XF 14mm & Bushnell 200mm.   I love my Fuji's and the colors they produce but, I just can't give up shooting with my Mamiya.  This was the first time I had self processed C-41 in about 6 years.  I think they turned out pretty well.  To see more of my images from today as well as other work you can click here:  http://www.justinleephotos.com/blog/

 

Thanks for viewing.

Hey from Trinidad & Tobago!

Yesterday, 02:27 PM

Posted by sekritiv in Members - Introductions

Hey guys! I hail from the lovely twin island nation of Trinidad & Tobago in the Caribbean.

Been switching up my gear a lot over the past two years. Started off shooting stills with a digital Nikon system, started shooting a lot more video and switched to a Canon system and adapting my old Nikkor lenses and quickly realised that no system was going to be good enough for me for both stills AND video. So I've sold off all my Canon gear and kept all my manual Nikkor glass. I now have a couple Sony bodies for video and recently picked up a used X-Pro1, 14mm, 35mm and 55-200 last month and couldn't be happier with the switch!

Still getting used to my X-Pro, but it feels so much nicer to carry around than a 5D Mk II and a couple lenses.

Gordy's Neck Strap

Yesterday, 01:42 PM

Posted by Jannie in Fuji X Accessories

I've been using one of Gordy's wrist straps for a year but wanted to find a simple low key neck strap for street photography and ended back up with one of Gordy's product. This is perfect for this setup and is all I need for this weight camera. If I get a X100T, I'll put one of these on it as well. Great, I added a photo and posted this from my iPhone and the photo isn't here. Give me a minute and I'll work this out. Here's also the wrist strap with a years use and I carried the camera with me almost every day.
