Looking forward to a new way of making images

Today, 01:10 AM

Posted by Gartmore in Members - Introductions
I'm Ken MacGregor and I graduated in design from The Glasgow School of Art (you couldn’t study photography there, then) and found a job with a wedding photographer, culture shock and a brilliant training in achieving a 100% success shooting rate and dealing with stressed people.

I subsequently joined the BBC as a Trainee Assistant Film Cameraman and enjoyed yet more training in lighting by guys with Emmy Nominations and Bafta Lifetime Achievement Awards, quite a privilege. I lit and shot films for the BBC and eventually I became a director specialising in Music and Arts documentaries and performance which I still do as a freelancer.

Throughout I have maintained a parallel career as a professional stills photographer using most camera brands at some point but have always used Pentax.

I'm picking up an X-Pro1 with 18, 35 and 16-50 on Saturday and I'm really excited about it.

Almost threw away this photo shot with the 10-24 on my X-E2.  It's remarkable how much dynamic range is in the Fuji JPG files.  I just purchased a grad ND and 10-stop ND so I'll try to retake this shot next time as a long exposure.

Hello from South Louisiana

Yesterday, 07:44 PM

Posted by RedWagon in Members - Introductions

Hello All,

I plan to purchase an X-T1 in June if all goes well. I've been scanning this forum since the release of this body and have been comparing the X-T1 and the Olympus E-M1. I've decide to go with the Fuji system mostly based on the quick response to initial release issues and, from what I've read they've taken feedback on things like the four-way buttons on the rear and seemingly adjusted that to many peoples approval. I've also followed another brand's release of a body that had dust/oil sensor problems and the general lack of a quick response to correct it turned me off from that line of high-end systems.

 

I do have a couple of questions, not sure if this is the right place, but here goes.

 

1. Fujifilm makes mention that the body is made in Japan, are the lenses made in the same country?

2. Is in-camera battery charging possible or is battery removal/battery docking required?

 

Thanks. I look forward to purchasing and enjoying the Fuji system and will continue to follow the threads here.

Macs, SD card readers, and Laziness

Yesterday, 07:20 PM

Posted by jwr in General Photography Talk

Let me preface this by explaining that my current computer setup consists of three 27" displays. My main display is in the center and being an iMac it's also the location of my built-in SD card reader.

 

My problem is that the Mac only detects the insertion of an SD card about 50% of the time. The other half I need to remove the card and insert it a second time--once the LR Import menu is displayed. It's always done this--even on my older iMac. With the latest iMacs the card reader is no longer on the side of the display but on the back of the display. Because of this and the fact that I have three displays I have to get up and walk around to the back of my desk to insert and remove cards.

 

After several years I finally caved last week and ordered a USB 3 SD card reader for $7. Now the only issue was the speed at which I can transfer images to my Mac. In order to do this I have several options. For testing I took 50 images, raw + JPG, for a total of 100 files and timed how long it took to read them into LR using each option. All tests were done with a SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro (95MBs) card. Here's what I found:

  1. The built-in SD card reader -- 70 seconds
  2. External card reader into a USB 2 port on the nearest display -- 90 seconds
  3. External card reader into a USB 3 port on the Mac -- 70 seconds
  4. External card reader into an old USB extension cable into the Mac's USB 3 port -- 95 seconds
  5. External card reader into a new USB 3 extension cable into the Mac's USB 3 port -- 70 seconds
  6. External card reader into the USB 3 cable, into a USB 3 hub, into the Mac's USB 3 -- 70 seconds

What I learned from this is:

  • The SanDisk Extreme Pro card definitely outperforms USB 2
  • It's no use using a USB 3 port if you're using an older USB extension cable
  • There's no performance difference between the built-in SD card reader and an external USB 3 card reader if it's plugged into a USB 3 port 
  • There's no performance difference between going directly into the USB 3 port on the Mac or a USB 3 hub plugged into the Mac's USB 3 port
  • Get a USB 3 cable if you're using an extension and a USB 3 hub
  • The difference between 70 and 90 seconds may not sound like much but it's just under 30%

All these statement seem to be true for the SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB card but using a slower of faster card will probably give you different results. For now I can rest comfortably knowing my new card reader detects the card every time and I'm not losing any time by using the external reader.

 

Here's a photo of the desk that caused the whole problem--having to walk around the back each time I needed to reinsert the card. My new card reader is just off the back right corner of the keyboard next to the iPad stand and in front of the mouse pad.

Exposure push/pull test

Yesterday, 07:16 PM

Posted by Luckshot in Fuji X Post Processing

Just for giggles I wanted to see what sort of latitude I could get out of .raf from my X-E1. I shot five frames with the same focus point, and then opened them up in Capture One. I didn't meter, just a sunny/16 manual exposure. The frames were:

 

1. f/16, 1/250, iso 200, 1/3 stop under exposed

2. f/16, 1/4000, iso 200, 4 stops under exposed

3. f/16, 1/1000, iso 200, 2 stops under exposed

4. f/16, 1/60, iso 200, 2 stops over exposed

5. f/16, 1/30, iso 200, 3 stops over exposed

 

100%, no correction:

 

 

Attached File  exp-test-c1p-orig.jpg   115.96KB   2 downloads

 

 

I then corrected the exposure by those amounts in C1. Looks good from a distance, but #2 is really hurting from the 4 stop push.

 

Attached File  exp-test-c1p-fit.jpg   106.73KB   2 downloads

 

100% from center of frame:

 

Attached File  exp-test-c1p-1.jpg   86.36KB   2 downloads

 

100% showing a variety of colors.

 

Attached File  exp-test-c1p-100-2.jpg   123.87KB   2 downloads

 

All said, it looks like for this scene, +/- two stops is pretty much ok.

Samyang / Rokinon 8mm - Mark I vs II

Yesterday, 06:53 PM

Posted by pechelman in Adapted Lens Discussion
Recognizing that the mark II has only been available a short while, I was curious if anyone has had a chance with the new version.

Ostensibly, the mark II is identical to the previous model save for one extra element and the associated slight increase in weight.

Any clue what the extra element is designed to do?
Reduce distortion, increase sharpness, contrast, whatever?

I'm sure I'll learn a lot from all of you people, little by little though :-)

Hopefully I'll be able of sharing with you some shoots soon

The Fuji X-T1 as a Pro Action Assignment Camera

Yesterday, 04:20 PM

Posted by Dan Bailey in X-T1 Discussion
I've been using my X-T1 alongside my Nikon D700 for most of my bigger shoots during the past two months, but last week, on the first day of a week-long assignment, my trusty Nikon went down. It seems that blowing snow from the heli got in under the plastic rotating aperture coupling ring on the front of the camera, so without a pause, I pulled out the X-T1 and kept going. Four days and almost 10,000 frames later, I ended up shooting nearly the entire job with the Fuji.
 
This was not an easy job either. It was a big production with lots of fast action, challenging locations, tricky lighting, off-camera flash, PocketWizards, a really wet scene with spraying water, people moving towards the camera, etc... and the X-T1 handled it all with no problems. Plus, the smaller Fuji setup allowed me to be more nimble, which helped us stay on schedule and get everything done on time. Art directors like this.
 
To me, this reaffirms even more that the X-T1 is indeed a full-on pro camera capable of shooting high end professional work. Six months ago, I never would have tried shooting a pro action/adventure assignment with mirrorless camera, but it seems that my world has changed.
 
 
Anyone else had similar experiences shooting high end jobs with the X-T1?
