S-21 Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum was one of 150 execution centres spread across Cambodia. The site is a former high school which was used as the notorious Security Prison 21 by the Khmer Rouge regime from its rise to power in 1975 to its fall in 1979. All photographs taken with Fuji X-Pro 1 & X-E1 with 14mm, 35mm & 18-55mm lenses.

I shoot fujifilm exclusively; I use two X-Pro 1’s and a X100s for my wedding work and travels. This set up works for me, however there was a learning curve involved, as the concept of these X-Cameras were different from the D-SLR’s that I was used to. The biggest challenge I faced was learning how these cameras acquired focus, I spent hours online seeking relevant information and even more time applying what I read and testing things out. YES, they actually do focus, they just do it differently to my old D700 and a friend’s 5D2 I had right next to it for comparison. As a result of the information I gathered and my personal experience over the last 8 months, I decided to put this article together and I hope that fellow X-Photographers out there and those considering buying one of these cameras might find it useful. Like Zack Arias, I believe that the Optical Viewfinder is a big deal on these cameras. The hybrid viewfinder is innovative and each mode serves a purpose, i.e for close ups where the Electronic Viewfinder is the better option. Nevertheless, I find myself using the Optical Viewfinder 90% of the time, I truly love it. The focus on this article will be focusing with these cameras (X-Pro 1 & X100s) with the Optical Viewfinder…….

It was Sue’s birthday. She gathered us in a big house in Llanberis in North Wales and gave us our orders. We were to climb Mount Snowdon. It was to be her final peak to climb in her list of modestly sized UK mountains to climb before thirty. My fingers crossed for the weather, I picked up my ever-so-light X100, put on my mighty-fine Brasher boots (thanks again mum!) and made sure that at least one of us was stocked up with Kendal Mint Cake. The only problem, I was labouring under a titanic hangover combined with a horribly early morning. Last night’s twin celebration of Sue’s birthday and the birth of my best friend’s first baby left me completely shattered. Or as the Welsh would say, ‘Wedi blino!’….

I’ve just returned from spending a few weeks in Vietnam and Thailand during which I gave my Fuji X-pro1 quite a workout. It performed perfectly, even in the middle of a rainstorm. Luckily, we had clear weather for our days in Ha Long Bay. Most of these images were shot with the Fujinon 18-55mm lens, which I picked up as a carry around lens for this trip, and while it’s perfect for vacation snapshots and casual shooting, it still doesn’t beat our the 35mm 1.4 for image quality and sharpness. They’ve now released a 23mm prime that looks fantastic, but costs nearly $900….

Recently the Fuji X pro 1 and I have been working with the fantastic girls at Models 1 curve . As the fuller figure becomes increasingly more popular in the fashion industry with Vogue and Elle frequently using curvier models on their covers, Debenhams finally introducing plus size mannequins and H & M launching their summer plus size campaign it’s no wonder these girls are so popular. It’s only a matter of time before they are each gracing the billboard of some major campaign…
One of the drawbacks of pancake lenses is that they tend to be slower than conventional designs. However, with a maximum aperture of f/2.8, this lens is fast enough to suit most photographers and its the compact size and light weight make it ideal for situations like travelling and hiking. It is also relatively inconspicuous, which is excellent for street photography. This lens is better suited to still photography than video because its DC coreless AF motor isn’t totally silent. However AF speed was fast on the X-E2 camera the lens was tested on……

I recently had the chance to take the Fuji X-Pro 1 with me on a workshop I was co-leading up above the arctic circle in the far north of Norway. I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to see how the camera performed in extreme conditions. I also had with me a newly delivered 23mm f1.4 Fuji lens to try out too. The images in this article were all made on the trip and all but the aurora shot are jpegs straight or virtually straight from the camera. If you followed my trip reports from the expedition you will have seen most of these images before (sorry!), but the aurora image with the 23mm lens is new, as are one or two of the others. The idea of testing the lens here was to see how it performed shooting the “Northern Lights”, the Aurora Borealis, if we had a chance to see it. In theory the fast f1.4 aperture would make it ideal but I was also interested to test the sharpness of the lens and also to get a feel for its width, which although 23mm works out at about 35mm as a full-frame DSLR equivalent…..

The big wheel dominating the Petrusse valley in Luxembourg, at sunset, create really interesting light trails and I tried to play around this subject to catch unusual frames. I was there just few minutes after the sunset so i can still see some clouds, is not too dark, and I can have the “star” effects on the light lamps, closing the diaphragm at F/22, ISO 200, tripod and, of course, my beloved Fuji X-E1 plus the Fujinon XF 18-55…..
