V. Opoku | K-pture blog

This time, we meet V. Opoku. V. is a wedding photographer based in London (UK) and a Fuji X camera user. I’ve discovered his work a few weeks ago with his Fuji X100s review and I was hooked. I liked his style, his vision and his work for sure. Plus, V. is a really nice guy. Enjoy!
 
Que tal?, mi llamo V. Opoku, but I go by just « V », most of the time. London is home for the time being but I am working on a move to Barcelona at some point this year – wish me luck! I usually grow a beard during the winter months and have recently started to keep it throughout the summer too…….

Fujifilm X100T Review: Now Shooting! – Shooter’s Report Part | Eamon Hickey

I found the Fujifilm X100T to be a fairly good performer overall, with a couple of modest exceptions. Once I had it on and activated, it responded essentially instantly to any control inputs, but it was sometimes just a bit slow to wake from sleep. It’s a small issue, and in my outings with the X100T I didn’t miss any shots because of it, but I think if I owned one, this might rear up and bite me every now and then. As I mentioned in part 1 of this report, my first time out with the Fujifilm X100T was to shoot the Thanksgiving Day parade, and my next two shoots after that were also outdoors during daylight. I shot most of my images on these walks using the camera’s Single AF (AF-S) autofocus setting, and it worked very well for me, focusing quickly and decisively. On one walk, I suddenly noticed a construction crew just as they were fastening cables to a crane hook, and I was able to focus and shoot in a second or less; the camera’s AF system was easily quick enough for this kind of street shooting. On later outings, I tried the X100T’s AF system on nighttime subjects in the East Village neighborhood, and here again the camera focused well on the high-contrast subjects I was shooting using the AF-S mode. With some later indoor shots in restaurants, the X100T’s AF-S system was somewhat slower but still worked reasonably well, focusing accurately in about a second or a little less………

Fuji Camera Remote App for Street Photography | Expat Photographer

I’ve said before, I like to shoot street candids like a ninja. I’m not all “In your face.” I’m like the wind, completely unseen. When I heard about the Fuji X-T1 and the Camera Remote App I was intrigued. Being able to shoot photos through my iPhone or tablet? I would be a complete ninja. My successes have been hit or miss. The Fuji Camera Remote App is a well-crafted utility. You can change ISO, EV, shutter speed and aperture. You can complete control the camera and focus by touching the live view preview on your device screen. All good. The main problem: Lag. The live view preview doesn’t lag, pressing the shutter button and taking a photo does. Frame up a great shot, press the shutter button and then maybe it will shoot immediately or maybe not. The Fuji Camera Remote App is not for fast snap shots, it takes some anticipation. The app is not at all like a Cam Ranger – which is super-responsive. Maybe Cam Ranger will release a Fuji version? ……

Fujifilm X100T, a new friend | The Studio at 46 West

I’m a big fan of the Fujifilm X-Series range of digital cameras. In September 2010 Fuji decided to introduce a smaller, rangefinder looking camera based on an 12 MP APS-C sensor size. The X100 was born. This little gem looked like the Leica’s of old, or even an older Yashica. It was smallish, mirrorless and it had retro appeal, up close not so much but still it was retro cool. It came packaged with a very good fixed 23mm f/2 lens with a leaf shutter and a hybrid viewfinder offering a switchable EVF and OVF function. Crazy. It’s CMOS sensor was Fuji spec’ed but still used a traditional Bayer filter. It was a hit. People lined up to buy them and a cult like following was formed. I bought one right off, as soon as I could find one, Availability was scarce. Fuji never figured it would be as popular as it was. It was a quirky piece of gear to be sure. Its focus time could be measured with a sundial. The auto ISO function was weird in function and use. It took about 20 minutes it seemed to start and be ready to operate. It had issues. It shot at higher ISO values well though, had a ND filter built in, rendered beautiful Fuji colors like their films and also rendered killer B&W images. It didn’t much matter how quirky it was……..

Rome – Shooting jpeg! | Finn-B Hansen

In my previous post I mentioned that I was going to do an experiment during my trip to Rome, shooting only jpegs. I brought two of my Fuji cameras, the X-T1 and the X100s. I was also planning to test out the new classic chrome simulation in my X-T1. I decided to shoot only in jpeg, but I admit that I was tempted several times during the trip to set the camera to RAW+F. However, I stood by my decision, and kept the cameras on jpeg. The reason for doing this was all the discussions in a many X groups about the quality of the Fuji jpeg’s, and also to measure the quality of the images shooting under sometimes very difficult conditions. My conclusion is that in most cases the jpeg settings works really well, but sometimes I had problems when the light conditions changed fast. Most of the problems was clipping highlights and loosing details in the shadows. Sometimes it was also tricky to get the correct white balance. Some of those issues can be fixed using small corrections in Lightroom, but the WB can be difficult to correct on a jpeg file. I did this just as a test, and I’m really happy with the result, but in the future I will still shoot RAW for having more control. However, It was fun testing it!….

A Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 Review – Sometimes, it’s just about love |
Mirrorlessons

Sometimes it is challenging to be totally objective. Reviews aren’t just about technical charts and specifications, but also about feelings, perception and the various influences around you. This past weekend I got the chance to test the new XF 56mm f/1.2 by Fuji. It is a standard portrait lens (85mm equivalent) so a proper portrait session was unavoidable. However, this time, instead of looking elsewhere I decided to take some beautiful portraits of my better half. I often take photos of her in various conditions and with various lenses for the sake of the website, including some less-flattering lenses. (Think the Fuji 10-24mm!) This time, I had the chance to make things right. It was hard to not love the results in the end! ……

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD Lens Review | ePhotoZine

This lens is a fine addition to the X-series lens line up. It is incredibly sharp, whether you’re shooting with the aperture wide open, or not. The APD filter, which sets this lens apart from the standard 56mm f/1.2 is a really interesting addition, which truly helps to improve the appearance of out of focus areas, with no loss of sharpness where the image is in focus. The main penalty is with the loss of light transmitted through the lens. If you require fast apertures, for low light shooting, this may make the standard non-APD version the better choice for you. If however, your choice to shoot at fast apertures as a creative decision, and you’re not struggling for light, then this is the lens for you. The difference in this respect will be worth the extra to those who appreciate it. The price of £1000 seems quite reasonable when compared to alternatives produced for other camera systems, and especially if your shooting suits fast apertures as a creative decision. This is especially true, as one criticism I levelled at the standard 56mm f/1.2 was the busy appearance of out of focus areas.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD Pros

  • Outstanding sharpness in the centre at maximum aperture
  • Outstanding sharpness across the frame when stopped down
  • Lightweight
  • Traditional design
  • Excellent build
  • APD filter improves appearance of out of focus areas

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD Cons

  • Slight loss of light due to APD filter makes the choice of this lens a creative decision over the standard lens

INK | Sven Schroeter

While wandering the streets we have identified an increase of tattoos and ink art in the population. As most of you have probably noticed (if you are not already part of the movement yourself), tattoos are a popular form of self expression and a creative outlet. Individuals from all walks of life are participating, checkout operators, stock brokers, farmers, students and the list goes on. We have decided to launch a new photography project entitled ‚ink‘, in part to document a trend we have picked up on but also to record a slice of  pop culture. To kick off the project, we wiggled our way into the very first Auckland ‚custom culture and tattoo‘ show in hope of gaining access to some of the artists at work……

Death Valley – A Journey to a Visual Mecca | Olaf Sztaba

There is no shortage of stunning places in North America and Kasia and I have hunted out many fantastic landscapes. Despite our travels, no other landscape has made such a profound visual and emotional impact on us as Death Valley. It is a visual Mecca for those who find beauty in remote, strange and rare places. Death Valley is in California’s Mojave Desert. It is the lowest, driest and hottest place in North America. Death Valley holds the highest air temperature ever recorded on earth: 56.7 C. While planning our trip, Death Valley was last on our list (after the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Route 66 and San Francisco). The only reason for that was efficiency and logistics. Since we had never visited Death Valley before, our intention was to soak up the atmosphere and gaze at the landscape. Given that we entered the Death Valley National Park from the east, we stopped by Rhyolite Ghost Town……..
