long fast prime?

Today, 07:58 AM

Posted by HarryBiscuit in Fuji X-Mount Lens Forum

I miss my 70-200 2.8l from my Canon days. Can't quite stretch to the 50-140 and I don't need a zoom - just something approaching the equivalent of 200mm at min 2.8. I have the 56 1.2 which is great but not always long enough.

 

Any thoughts on a fastish longish prime for Fuji X?  I know the 90 is coming out, which is not too far off, if just a little short - but are there other things worth considering?

Member needs help, X30 X100S, or X-E2

Today, 06:48 AM

Posted by atvuornf in General X Camera Forum

I need advice.
I have the recent  X30 and at Christmas I also bought the X100S, I like it (X100S) because it's like cameras used to be and has better resolution to the X30 but don't like the fixed lens.  The X30 has a good view finder but is quite large for the low MP and I don't like how it turns on.

 

I also have a Canon DSLR with a 18-135 zoom and the small. Canon S110.

 

My shop will take my X30 in part exchange for a new X-E2, they are offering a deal I am happy with and I can claim the £100 back from the Fuji offer. Will the kit 18-55 be enough.  I don't know what to do. Any advice welcome.

Portrait with 50-140

Today, 06:08 AM

Posted by ralfwinston in 50-140mm

I like the xf50-140 as a portrait lens as it's very versatile. and the OIS is superb for low light. This is my favourite among the few. I am not sure if i can get the same shot at that shutter speed with xf 16-55.

 

shot through window light : iso 1600 F3.2 1/30sec @ 140mm handheld . processed with Rawtherapee. original image is much sharper....the image was "soften" to hide the blemishes on the face. :D I have not learnt to do retouching with photoshop yet.

Can't find info anywhere on this but maybe I'm not looking in the right places.

 

Is there a button combo that will format the card without going through the menus?

 

On X-T1, but would also be useful on X-E2.

Naming custom settings

Is it possible to give the different custom settings a name or title, please? I was able to do this on my Nikon D300 but don't seem to be able to do it on the X-Pro. If not, you have to remember what is in each setting.... Or rather, which setting you want for a specific purpose.

Full-time pro from Lapland introducing.

Today, 03:34 AM

Posted by Kaapu in Members - Introductions

Hi,

 

I've been in photography business for four years now.

I use to use Canon pro gear, but I changed to Fuji 6 months ago.

It wasn't easy and I've been doubting, but since I got the 50-140mm I feel

safe. Still waiting for the 16-55mm.

 

I do weddings, photojournalism, advertisments and lot of other things.

Fuji can do all these and I'm satisfied.

 

If you want to give some support to fellow Fuji-shooter I would be

thankful if you find time to visit my facebook-page and maybe website.

 

Sorry, the pages are only in finnish at the moment. Working for english.

Current gear - XT-1, Samyang 12mm, 18-55mm, 23mm, 27mm, 56mm, 50-140mm, 55-200mm.

 

Satisfied customer. I did the opening ceremony of winter testing facility in Finland, Lapland, with 23mm and 56mm last week.

Contest Question

Yesterday, 09:50 PM

Posted by photome09 in General Photography Talk

Hi, Folks...actually, not sure if I can ask this question in this forum as it does not relate to fuji, so I apologize to the Admin in advance.

 

I am reluctant to join the contest because part of the rule says that the entry submited must be with the permission of the subject or subjects.

 

I took a picture during a photography expo. As in any photography expo, vendors hire models to promote their products and models pose for their pics to be taken.

 

My question is, can I still join the contest without the permission of the model & or photogrpahy expo organizers or sponsors? I just took a quick snap of the model & didn't realize that it was actually a nice shot after all.

 

I would really appreciate inputs, especially from those who have had experience in photography competitions or judging photo competitions who are knowleageable of contest rules such as the rule I mentioned above.

 

Thanks in advance & sorry to the Admin if this is off the rules.

With or without glasses?

Yesterday, 07:21 PM

Posted by dixeyk in X-E1 and X-E2 Forum
I am finding that I am able to use the X-E1's EVF to manually focus without my glasses. I need glasses for anything nearby but focus peaking makes it easier to nail the focus that I would have thought. I'm a bit surprised but certainly wouldn't mind being able to shoot without my glasses. Anyone else find this to be the case?

Walking around the inner courtyard at Mission San Juan Bautista I noticed the window and wanted to include some of the cactus, I had to do a little cropping to get the right feel for size.  The more I use the 56mm lens the more it seems to be one of the best lenses I have used.

Bulb

Yesterday, 03:24 PM

Posted by Activatedfx in Still Life

A few still life macro's of a cool looking halogen bulb I found in the closet. Lit with a very bright LED flashlight pointed at a translucent sea-glass green tiled backsplash in my kitchen. The overhead cabinets and walls provided near-perfect edges and reflections. The XF60 continually blows my mind with it's sharpness and gorgeous OOF rendering, and the X-E2 is nearly noiseless at ISO 800.

 

X-E2 and XF60mm macro. ISO 800 at f/2.4. Lightroom processed with my own settings plus a light color shift via the VSCO Film 06 cross-processed set (Prescia 100XP).

18-55 vs 18-135 for iceland, and do I need to go wider?

Yesterday, 02:31 PM

Posted by Labenge in Fuji X-Mount Lens Forum

I'm going to Iceland in September and plan to buy a X-T1 because I'd like more versatility than the X100S I already own.  Although I could probably do just fine with the X100S because I'm not going there on a photography project - I just like to take pictures when I travel.  Still, I think it would be good to have something wider for landscapes.  

 

I figure that since there are rebates right now (in Canada), I should seriously consider getting the X-T1 and the 18-135 WR lens for that versatility.  I may get the 35 1.4 as well  (It's a habit for me to pick up a fast standard lens, and the 35 has something nice about it). 

 

You general input would be appreciated.

  • Is 18-135 a bit on the big side?  Would I be just as well served with the 18-55 (especially as its faster for use indoors). I can probably do without weather sealing on the lens - although it seems a shame to bring bags with me to cover the lens on a weather sealed camera in the rain/mist
  • Does the 18-135 focus as fast as the 18-55?
  • Is 18 wide enough for the sweeping landscapes I expect to see in iceland?  Not that I want a 16-55mm 2.8 -- which sounds like a fine lens but it's expensive and massive from what I can see. 
  • I could buy a separate wide lens (a prime or the 10-24 zoom). I'm not absolutely on a budget, my I'm not so comfortable that spending close to $1000 on a wide lens is an easy choice to make.  The Samyang 12 f2 is cheaper, but much wider than anything I've used before and I may find it hard to use (horizons etc).  The widest I've shot is 24mm FF equivalent on my old LX3. it was a fun focal length.

 

I really appreciate any feedback.

Surprised with the 23mm's ability to shoot portraits

Yesterday, 12:29 PM

Posted by hendodesign in Fuji X-Mount Lens Forum

I recently picked up a 23mm and sold off my 35mm which was my first portrait centric lens. I have always heard of the 23mm being a great walk around street lens and I have to say that it has been amazing at that so I was surprised to see perform really well in my little office studio as well. I set up a single speed light and softbox and let my son shoot some pics of his brother and dad, and was very impressed with both the sharpness and color rendering from this lens. I did some small adjustments in capture one 8, and added a little clarity for contrast. But overall really impressed with the flexibility of the lens so far. It's nice to have another portrait option alongside my 56mm—especially when I thought I was forfeiting that by selling the 35mm.

I have this little Olympus FL-20 flash that I use on my XE-2, in Manual mode, and it works beautifully. But it won't work on my XT-1. Neither will my Nikon Speedlight SB-600. Am I doing something wrong, or are they just incompatible?
