Tethered Shooting With The Fuji X-T1 | Arno Jenkins

Last week Fujifilm quietly released the plugin allowing Fuji X-T1 users to shoot tethered to Adobe Lightroom. I have been patiently waiting for this feature since I switched to Fuji from Canon. So was the wait worth it? For me the answer is yes. When I’m in the studio shooting products or portraits viewing the image on a big screen seconds after it’s taken is worth the small price of the software. It speeds up my entire process. I can see if things are in focus, what the lighting truly looks like, and if the client is in the room they can approve the image right then. I’m sure for some people the fact that Fuji is charging $29.00 for this plugin is an immense turnoff, but for me it’s a small price to pay for all the time it saves me.What does this plugin do, and what does it not do? It allows you to click the shutter button from within Lightroom without touching the camera and it transfers the image into Lightroom instantaneously. That’s it. It does not let you control or make any changes to the camera settings. You can apply a “Develop Setting” as the images are imported into Lightroom by selecting which Preset you want to apply, if any……

iPad Workflow with the Fujis | Julie Edwards

I travel around my local area mostly by scooter so the ability to cut the volume of my kit has been a huge bonus. To aid with this, where possible I also switch to an iPad from a Mac Book (Pro). I need to carry some form of editing platform because as a press photographer I need to be able to send images to the paper as fast as possible, mostly even as the news item (event) is ongoing. When working with an iPad I have basically 2 different workflows depending on the situation……

Setup your Fuji Camera Like A Boss! | Leigh Miller

Aside from „What Gear to Buy“ and „Post Processing“ techniques, how I set up my Fuji cameras is a frequent question. Straight up, the way I do it is primarily to maximize battery usage and speed up the camera operation. The downside is having to „dumbed down“ the camera , almost to the level of a DSLR. I essentially turn down some of the best aspects of a mirrorless camera such as continuous focus, etc. In this post we give you the bare essentials of how and why my X-T1 is setup as it is. For the most part it stays that way unless I need to reconfigure the display for studio shooting, in which case I don’t use the exposure simulation in MANUAL mode. This first step can make the difference between a good experience and a return within 30 days. It’s a personal thing and I’ve never seen two cameras from the same brand configured identically. The most important thing to keep in mind is that factory settings are a recipe for gray hair. It’s most true of mirrorless cameras which typically have a lot more going on than their DSLR cousins. Default settings will eat your battery reserves quicker than ice cream melting on a hot day. …..

Switching from DSLR to Fujifilm | Sebastian Boatca

Yes, it has been almost 2 years since I have made the switch from DSLR to Mirrorless World. To be more precise, from Canon DSLR to Fujifilm. And I am happy with it. I will try to explain in just a few words why did I do it.

As a passionate amateur photographer, I have felt I need something more that what a compact Panasonic Lumix with Leica name on it and superb OIS can offer. This was my first digital camera for photography and I was content. But then I have discovered things like Manual Exposure, Bokeh, fast autofocus, superb glass, lots of lenses, great ergonomics, huge battery autonomy, that “professional look”, full control of your settings, great IQ and superior performance at high ISO levels. All those things were incredibly interesting and made me forget the compact camera, pushing me to experiment more, expect more from my pictures.

2015 Fujifilm X-Photographer’s Book | Matt Brandon

Fujifilm is contacting it’s X-Photographers (I assume all of them, but I don’t know for certain) and asking them to submit one image for their 2015 book highlighting their X-Photographers. Honestly, it’s a marketing tool saying, “Look at how good our cameras work in the hands of our X-Photographers!” That’s OK with me, I understand that marketing needs to be done and it provides another nice showcase for many people’s work – a win, win. I was asked by Fujifilm Malaysia to submit one photo. But I have thousands. So which one do I give them? The first step I took was to open up Adobe Lightroom and use it’s nifty library filter feature and select only photos taken with Fujifilm X-series cameras. I then narrowed it down to my 5 star images. From that point it was a matter of just plowing through the 5 stars and finding a few selects. I was able to narrow the first draft to about 23 images…….

Gearing Up :: Leica Q | Van Styles

I like most photographers out there have a fascination with new gear. While I know what tools I like I am always open to trying out a new camera. Many people have come to know me for being one who enjoys shooting with Leica cameras and the Q was one I had gotten the most messages in regards to my thoughts about it. I finally got a chance to shoot with it and to share what impression it had on me. For myself the M has been the most enjoyable camera I have used in my 13 years of photography. So when Leica announced their new model  Q a couple of months ago I was definitely curious. A full frame sensor in a compact M inspired body that not only has auto focus,a 28mm 1.7 Summilux lens but macro ability as well definitely got my interest sparked. While the Q is pretty hard to get in the states at the moment (without paying a high premium) I was fortunate enough to get sent one to me from Leica to try out for a couple of weeks. I wasn’t sure what to think of this camera to be honest with a price tag of $4,250.00. A couple of years ago I owned a Sony Rx1R which is a similar concept. While I enjoyed the quality of photos I got from it the Rx1R wasn’t that inspiring of a tool for me. The Q seemed to have a few things going for it such as a built in EVF,touch screen and a zone focusing system. But there would only be one way to find out what the Q could do……

Leica Q (Type 116) review | Wilson Wong

Buying a Leica camera is like buying a very expensive watch – it’s a luxury item. Hung around the necks of people who have no idea of photography, it is a status symbol. Yet, if you care even a little for image quality, you can’t deny the uniqueness of a Leica camera. The images it produces can be nothing short of breathtaking – if it’s used right. The German company’s new Q camerawants to attract both amateurs and experts alike. Costing about half the flagship M camera system, the fixed-lens camera promises superb image quality and usability. And it’s a luxury item, for sure. Unlike its previous “mass market” cameras that had been seen, at best, as re-badged Japanese cameras, the Leica Q is hand-made in Germany with the same attention to detail as the M. The camera body quickly makes you feel that you are holding the more expensive M camera. It’s smaller and lighter at 640g, but feels solid thanks to the use of magnesium and aluminium. The shutter and aperture settings are controlled in the same way as the M and the much-liked Fujifilm X100. Both are based on how rangefinders cameras are designed and used……

Leica Q | Photo Review

The new Leica Q appears to have been developed in response to a perceived demand for a large sensor/fixed lens camera that is small and light enough to be an everyday companion but delivers high levels of image quality and functionality. Featuring a 24-megapixel 36 x 24 mm sensor and integrated Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens, its design has evolved from the Leica M (Typ 240), which was released late in 2012 and which we haven’t reviewed. Despite its non-interchangeable lens, the Q has introduced many improvements over the M in both technology and functionality. Its nearest competitor is the Sony RX1, which appeared at about the same time as the Leica M but attracted a lot more attention. We reviewed the RX1 in March 2013. The RX1 was updated in June 2013 by removing the anti-aliasing filter in front of the sensor but other features remain unchanged. The table below compares key features of the Leica Q with the current Sony RX1R…….
