Battery Park and Brooklyn Bridge - 56mm

Today, 09:56 AM

Posted by Activatedfx in Fuji X Photos

My son took off on a cruise to Bermuda with his girlfriend last weekend, so I decided to trek over to Battery Park in lower Manhattan and watch the ship make its way down the Hudson River.


Aside from about 100 pics of the ship, I also managed a few nice shots in Battery Park, and while walking back home over the Brooklyn Bridge. The 60mm Macro has been my "desert Island" lens for a long time, but I have to say, the 56 always brings a big smile to my face. It would be a tough choice! I just adore that shallow DOF, "3D" look it brings to photos. Very "full frame", filmic look and feel. If only it focused down to @15 inches...


While I planned to shoot and process in color, somehow NYC always looks better in B&W. All shot with X-E2. Processed in LR 5.5 using some B&W presets I found a long time ago (google "Moriyama"), and tweaked a bit to taste.

Definition of Torture: Waiting for the X-E2 to be delivered.

Today, 09:50 AM

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

I had an X-T1 but could never get used to the nose-smash so I traded for an X-E2 and now I'm waiting until Friday when it will be delivered...it's sheer torture!


While I'm waiting (no camera) I'm watching videos and thinking about it and the X100S (waiting for Photokina also)...so I found this pic of my old X-E2 with the 27mm pancake and it made me feel just a LITTLE bit better...


C'mon Friday!

Help Me Buy the Correct Adapter for Vivitar 70-150mm 3.8 close focusing lens

Today, 09:36 AM

Posted by marysky in Adapted Lens Discussion
My plan is to purchase the X-T1. I have an old vivitar 70-150mm 3.8 as well as an old pentax lens that I would love to use.

I'm not understanding thr abriviation M4 (micro 4ths?). When I look at the mount on this lens, it looks like my previous EF canon lens in that there are no threads but just a twist and lock it in place. I've been ready other threads and I'm really not sure what I need.

If someone can help explain it and/or point me to a beginners thread or website, I'm happy to try to read more on my own.

X100s remote release: is there a wired or wireless version yet?

Today, 08:52 AM

Posted by Markoe in X100 and X100S Discussion

I've yet to find a wired or wireless shutter release for the X100S. Anyone else having any luck with this?


Fuji USA does not offer any device and I've yet to find any evidence of a third party device that will work effectively.


Any information you can provide would be very much appreciated.

Fujifilm Flash EF-42

Today, 08:28 AM

Posted by brygil in Fuji X Flash Photography

Apologies in advance if this information is readily available elsewhere. I've been hunting around the net for tech specs on fujifilm's EF-42 and can't seem to find what I am looking for.


Does anyone know the flash duration (t.1 time) for the EF-42? I want to use it with my X100S, which due to its leaf shutter, can theoretically synch up to its maximum shutter speed of 1/4000. The upper limit to flash sync speed should be the burn time of the flash... but I can't seem to find t.1 times for the EF-42.


Thanks in advance.

Where are the 56mm lens?

Today, 06:45 AM

Posted by Comanche in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

I have searched everywhere for the 56mm lens, everyone is back ordered.  My camera store says that they come in 1-2 at a time with no time table.  Are they that hot or does Fuji not make enough? I have to get on the list to get one. Bummer!

Red dot on almost all photos (with different lenses)

Today, 06:34 AM

Posted by dergit in X-T1 Discussion



I've had my X-T1 for about three weeks now and a former Canon user, I'm VERY happy with the ergonomics, usability and, of course, image quality.


Straight away, I took it with me on a rather exhaustive 10-day hiking trip through Norway. I'm finally getting around to importing and editing the pictures (oh Velvia, how I miss thee when converting RAF in Aperture) and I'm noticing an irritating red dot in the bottom right corner of almost all images. See some 100% crops:

Now, most of the time this is not a problem but in some darker landscape shots it really annoys me, it's visible even at 1024px...

It occurs with all lenses I own (10-24, 35 and 56), so it's not a speck on the lens or something. But it looks somewhat different each time, depending on aperture, focal length, exposure etc... so it's not a digital error either. What is it and how do I get rid of it? I can't stamp it out of every picture I take!


Thanks for all your posts!

I was just about to post this in the X-T1 "porn" thread when I realized she was holding the X-E1

Today, 02:44 AM

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

I TOOK the shot with the X-T1 LOL, anyhow the thread over in the X-T1 section inspired me to make this image during the shoot a couple nights ago, I was like oh wait just one more thing... this was after 4 hours of shooting at 11:00 PM- Jen is a total trooper.  Shot is at F1.2 so camera is OOF and I was experimenting with my super light one-nikon speed light-in-the-umbrella-super-portable-setup-thing- and I am aware of how indulgent it is to "experiment" on a shoot like this but it is a rough life :)

Is dynamic range settings useless?

Yesterday, 11:18 PM

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

I think the "dynamic range" % settings mean:  the more contrast, the higher the dynamic range should be set.

So, for outdoor, contrasty, sunny, dark shadows and bright highlights situations the DR should be set to 400%. I shoot aperture priority auto exposures.


Believing the above, I test-shot several similar images with different Dynamic Range settings. There was no difference in the images.


Is my X-E2 buggered in some way OR am I doing something wrong? Should different dynamic range settings produce different density/contrast images?

Vivitar 70-205 and Yashinon-DX 135

Yesterday, 10:47 PM

Posted by Camtography in Adapted Lens Discussion

Last week I went to a thrift store and came across some vintage camera lenses.  I ended up choosing the Vivitar 70-205 f3.8 (close focus) and the Yashinon 135mm f2.8 lens.  Both were screw mounts and luckly my M42 adapter worked for both :)


First up is the Vivitar 70-205 lens.  Although my eyes are no longer as good as they were before I decided to take this lens because I love shooting images on the telephoto side.  What really surprised me was the close focusing ability, normally this lens can focus as close as 2 meters, but with close focusing engaged it can do pseudo macro .7 meters which I think is amazing!


This is an unedited, straight from the camera image with and without close focusing.

This past Sunday I took my X-E1 and 70-205 into a movie theater for church service.  It was extremely dark and the only strong light source was coming from two Ikea lamps.  The camera was set to ISO 6400 and 60-160 shutter speed at times at F3.8.  Here are the results.

14703259751_e304fc7973_c.jpgSunday July 20-10 by Camtography, on Flickr


For me it was hard to nail critical focus on the images because they are moving and EVF on the X-E1/X-Pro1 sucks in the dark because of lag.  I was shooting jpeg + raw but only edited the raw images you see above.  Also, this lens is fairly long , its as big as the Canon 70-200 F4 but it's very manageable to hand hold for long periods of time.


Next up is the Yashino 135mm F2.8.  I purchased this because ever since using the Canon 135L I simply fell in love with that focal length.  The MFD for this lens is 1.5meters which is no fun when shooting people but only time will tell if I return or keep it.  It also comes with a built in lens shade.  This lens is really bad when shooting with the sun 90 degrees to your side.  But for 10$ I won't complain...much.


I finally took this camera out for a test today and here are some unedited jpeg results.

What I'm still waiting for as I mentioned before is Fuji's 50-140 F2.8 lens as well as a Fuji camera that has a better EVF refresh rate, along with more megapixels to play with.  As well as a colored focus peaking system (like the X-T1 or Sony A7).  I'm skipping the X-T1 in favor of a new X-Pro body also.  But yeah, overall using retro lenses is really fun and dirt cheap.


Also, one last thing for anyone doing a photowalk, try out the custom white balance feature

A teleconverter, please!

Yesterday, 09:34 PM

Fuji makes such wonderful lenses - I would love to see a 1.4x and/or 2x teleconverter...

(Edit) To clarify: for the lens system, not the x100 :)

First shot with Samyang 8mm Fuji X Mount.

Yesterday, 08:10 PM

Posted by fhk1956 in Fuji X Photos

The 8mm Samyang arrived yesterday.


Never got a chance to do anything but mount it on the camera then.


This morning I got a chance to use it. WOW - Great field of view.


Main trouble is keeping my hands/ feet/ shadows out of the shots.


DOF is huge. Pleased with the unit. I will have to wait until the weekend to test it further.


But here is a photo of my 'assistant' Tigger. He just hates it when I get some new gear !


Pic at 1/125th f8 ISO 200.
