Reflection Control

Yesterday, 11:29 PM

Posted by Dobson in Fuji X Photos

I'm still trying to dial in my studio setup for photographing my steel work. The biggest challenge I'm facing right now is controlling reflections off of the various surfaces. I want to show the mirror polish of the the bevels while keeping the satin-finished steel "satiny". The wood has its own set of issues, too, with surface and interior reflections.


Right now, I'm just using white nylon fabric to reflect in the steel. I think I'd like something more uniform for the satin parts (maybe white foam core), but the mirror polished parts show best when they're reflecting a pattern. Any ideas of what sort of pattern would look good in this instance? I'm feeling way out of my element. This photo took an hour or so of fiddling with the knives and reflectors to get something decent.

Help with 18-55

Yesterday, 08:23 PM

Posted by Alice in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

I don't understand the 18-55.  The 56mm?  Oh, yeah.  That aperture ring is sooo good.  I looked up Ken Rockwell's review of the 18-55 and didn't understand what he said about the aperture encoder ring, which he seemed to think was pretty worthless.

Yes, I know a lot of people think his reviews are pretty worthless, but I'm just trying to figure out how to use this lens.


Yesterday, I shot another set of jewelry, and decided to try the 18-55 on the X-T1.  The first set a couple of days ago, I used the 56mm and it worked beautifully.  But yesterday, the 56mm never achieved focus, as if I were too close.  The setup was exactly the same as when I used it before.  Same bench, tripod racked as high as it would go, but all I got was the red square.


So I decided to try the 18-55, and shot 14 images.  I turned the exposure ring when I needed to darken/lighten a bit. Sometimes without looking, which is how I'd like to shoot the X-T1.  ISO 200, can't remember what I set the shutter speed at, but nevertheless, I got good exposures under my small studio continuous source softboxes.  I looked on the LCD each shot and saw a nice image.  When I took the card to the computer, the first 5 were perfect, the next 9 were almost totally black.  The only thing I thought I changed from time to time, according to the particular piece I was shooting, was the exposure comp dial.  But the folder in Photoshop showed a video down under the still shots!!!


Needless to say, I was unhappy since those 9 ruined images involved a lot of setup time. Now I get to do them all over. I just can't figure out how to set the aperture or how the aperture encoder ring works.


And why would I see a properly exposed image in the LCD, and have it turn out black?  Looking through the EVF, they looked right, too.

I don't have a bench lower than the one I'm working with. I'd rather work with the 56mm, but apparently I'm borderline on working distance.

No, I can't post one, because I deleted them in anger.  :)

Help and advice appreciated.

Howzit my braddah and sistahs!
Been lurking on this helpful forum for a while now and I decided to get the fuji X-T1. I skipped the kit lens and went for the 23mm. I hope I made the right decision as this is my first time spending 2 gs on a camera 😱.
I have a d90 with kit lens and mostly shoot from 20 - 30mm or at the long end, 105mm. I love takin pics of people with nice scenery, my dog🐶, pics at night with just natural light, and lastly my girlfriend's selfies and ootd for Instagram lol. Anyway, mahalo for having me here \m/

Which flashes should I use on my x-t1?

Yesterday, 03:56 PM

Posted by Mitchell Green in X-T1 Discussion

I am a canon shooter as well and I have and love their 600ex-rt with builtin radio triggers. Not sure if if they are safe to use on the X-t1. Anyone know?   If not what are you using for your X-T1?

A dying thunderstorm

Yesterday, 01:43 PM

Posted by infinapix in Fuji X Photos

I took these two images approximately a half hour apart. On July 27th, Ontario saw severe thunderstorms pop up ahead of a sharp cold front. Some areas experienced tornadoes from F0-F2 on the enhanced Fujita scale. As the storms approached my city, Kingston, Ontario, the cool lake breeze off Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River quickly dissolved the storms into nothing but heavy rain and a sharp temperature drop.


Some of you folks that follow me on Flickr might have already seen these.

Apologies for not participating much as of late but my working life has blossomed to a wonderful 70+ hours a week courtesy of wedding season.  :)  Here's one from a few weeks back where i was fortunate enough to get 2 minutes of light like this.  The location is about 1700 vertical feet above the town i live in at the top of a ski resort.  In the image is the closest city to my hometown and a salt water bay that extends about 45 kms inland.  This is on the beautiful west coast of Newfoundland.

Shot with the X-T1 with Rokinon 12mm f2.  Velvia film simulation.

Hope this works as the last one i uploaded did not!

"Weather Resistant" Body

Yesterday, 11:12 AM

Posted by Frame House in X-T1 Discussion

Long story short...I was out with friends a while back. I may have had a few beers.  One may have spilled on my X-T1...only a little spill. Seriously, a small amount of beer spilled. Small amount.  With that said, the on/off dial began to stick and became hard to switch on/off in the days/weeks to come.  Fast forward a few months.  I sent it off to Fuji to be fixed.  Now Ill take the blame for shooting and drinking, but I would have thought a "weather resistant" body would resist liquid a bit better.  I got the $250 bill for the repair as they found liquid inside the dial, which I guess voided the warranty. 


A lesson learned, or a not so good "weather resistant body"?


Either way, Ill be glad to get my X-T1 back soon.  Having used Fuji repair a few times now, I still think it is a very fast and easy process.

X100S goes back to Fuji in NJ for a second time.

Yesterday, 11:05 AM

Posted by noeltykay in X100 and X100S Discussion

I sent my X100S to Fuji for repair in June.  The on/off button started to stick, and sent it in for repair just before the warranty ran out.  I got it back in late June, just before a trip to NY.  Fuji replaced the top cover and performed the repair.  I noticed immediatley several things wrong with the camera:


The focus ring was no longer fluid...it started sticking in a few places.  


The battery door seemed more flimsy and did not stay shut.  


The camera would not always turn on, and I had to turn it on and off a few times to get it to power up.


There is now dust on the sensor...you can see the spot just above the horizon line to the right of the frame.




I am hoping when I finally get the X100S back it is fully repaired.

Can one of the moderators explain to me why some posts have no photos on the What's New page but the images are available on the post when it is clicked and others have ALL their photos on the What's New page?


For those of us who want to quickly scan the new topics, it might be nice to keep the long list of photos off of the main page, or perhaps a "teaser" photo for what is in the post.


Anyway it is just a thought.
