Enhance! Superresolution Tutorial in Adobe Photoshop |
Ian Norman

In this tutorial Ian Norman shows us how to enhance the resolution of a camera sensor with a technique called superresolution. With this technique, it’s possible to mimic the sensor-shift high-resolution mode found on cameras like the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II to squeeze more megapixels out of the sensor. In his example, he increases the resolution of a 24 megapixel photo to more than 90 megapixels. See the full written tutorial here …..
 
 
NEW! Additional stuff: In this short clip, Ian Norman shows two different methods for averaging layers in Photoshop.

Fujifilm XM-FL 24mm f/8 First Impressions Review | Brendan Nystedt

While jaded enthusiasts might roll their eyes at them, we love the weird and wild world of toy lenses. The cheaper, the better. So, when Fujifilm announced its new XM-FL 24mm f/8 filter lens (MSRP ¥12,582—or about $105) for the Japanese market, the company had our attention immediately. Featuring three selectable filters, this tiny lens could easily be your body cap, with the added bonus of being able to help you take ridiculously fun photos. Given the nature of this tiny little lens, we can’t fault it for its cheap-feeling plastic body. While this little guy is made in Japan, it has a super simple construction with little flare. We’re probably lucky that it even comes in two colors—silver and black…….

Complete report from the Fujifilm stand at CP+ 2015 | Gritty Monkey

CP+ is always an exciting time for Fujifilm users, as we usually get a pick to some of the upcoming X-series products, way before they hit the market. Granted, this is mainly work-in-progress, so there might be changes down the road (such as the infamous “no-OIS on the final version of the XF16-55mmF2.8″ incident), but still the refreshed lens roadmap always gives a welcome clarity on the big picture (no pun intended!). To me, and the long queue of people waiting for their turn, the highlight of Fujifilm’s stand at each CP+ is always the lens bar, where you can choose any XF lens that has already been officially released (so up to the XF16-55mmF2.8 this year), and try it on the X-series body of your choice. You can also try the X100’s line or Fuji’s compact cameras, if that is what you are interested in. This year, Fujifilm had set up a stage with a Harley Davidson and a 2 models wearing high boots and tiny leather shorts posing around it. I want to make 2 quick comments about it…….

A year with a Pro- one year on with the Fuji X-Pro1 | SUBERASHI

A year ago I jumped ship from being a Canon user to the world of Fuji and CSC cameras. Having dabbled with the very cool Olympus PEN range I was sure someone would deliver a camera with a smaller footprint than my now long gone 5dMKii but similar performance in the real world for whatever shoot I was getting paid for. As a working product photo guy image quality was ultra important so I couldn’t get the decision wrong. Well a year on and I haven’t missed the Canon gear, missed the camera snobbery that comes with having a big old DSLR, more than anything it’s made me love taking photos more also some cool looks from folk when they see the size of camera but then the image slickness. No it’s not full frame no, it doesn’t have 4k but it has soul bags of soul. From product work in the studio to landscape or street work work its been stellar. Perfect? no focusing can be a tad slow, not as bad as Facebook or Twitter knowledge trolls will have you think. Batteries can be greedy on use but any shooter worth his salt never leaves home with just on cell right? Lightroom works a treat with the RAW files as does Camera RAW. In the Studio it has excelled on projects that needed control of lighting and using it with triggers was and is a breeze. Have used cheap ebay triggers and Pocket Wizard set ups and again the little black box just gets on with it………

Red Kite Stages | Electric Lemonade

Having photographed motorsport professionally for over 15 years with various Canon film and digital SLR cameras I was keen to try the Fujifilm X-T1 for rally photography and ventured deep into Wales last weekend for the Red Kite Stages. My ‘standard’ lens for shooting rallies was always a 70-200mm f2.8 but now that I photograph mainly landscapes I no longer need such fast aperture lenses and use the Fujinon XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS. This relatively inexpensive lens has given some stunning results on both the X-T1 and X-E1 cameras but I wasn’t expecting miracles from it in a welsh forest in the middle of winter. For landscape work I always use the X-T1 in manual focus using the excellent depth of field scale in the electronic viewfinder (EVF) as well as the dual screen mode and focus peaking, so my AF experience with it was limited. I had read a lot on the ‘interweb’ about the X-T1’s failure to lock on to moving subjects in the AF-C continuous focus mode and indeed if the camera is left at the default settings it does have a tendency to hunt for focus and often I found that the car had gone past before it locked on…if at all! There were 5 things I changed that solved this problem, set the AF mode to area, increase the focus area to the maximum size (150%), change the AF-C priority selection from focus priority to release priority, set the drive mode to continuous high (CH 8 frames per second) and finally turn off the face detection…….

Winter landscape for fun with the XF 14mm Fujifilm lens | Gavin Lyons

I took the wide angle lens for my Fujifilm X-T1 camera out on a bright and cheerful Saturday morning. The lens in question is known as the XF 14mm ƒ2.8 lens in 35mm terms – 18mm. I hadn’t used it for quite awhile and felt somewhat with guilt. That it had sat collecting dust and not light.  It seemed today was the day, with abounding blue skies with the added gift of clear winter light. The Fuschl am See was the place chosen beforehand during the week. A lake in the Salzkammergut outside the city of Salzburg in Austria.  Perfect to stroll along a path within the snow for a wintery walk. The lake itself – Fuschl am See is interesting indeed  but not enough this time around as I had photographed it before. The appeal on this day was the perfect crispy whitened layer snow on either side of the path. There were no clouds marking the sky, the sun was present but hadn’t dominated or washed away the blue around it. The various trees and their stems became silhouettes against the highlighted colored background. Seeing the river reeds dry and preserved they still remained standing. Looking closely at the bushes now bare, ice crystals hung.   All these things were reason enough to photograph and be creative with the wide angle Fujinon lens that was attached to my Fujifilm X-T1 camera – which you can see below with it’s fancy vintage strap……

Zoom! Zoom! | Tim Bray

In re­cent days I’ve bought two new Fu­ji­film lens­es. The choic­es weren’t easy and I’m far from con­vinced I did the right thing. Have a look and see what you think. 10-24 · Back be­fore Christ­mas I bought the (take a deep breath, of­fi­cial name here) Fu­ji­non XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS Wide An­gle Zoom Lens. It was sort of on im­pulse; new job, Christ­mas com­ing, felt in the mood for a toy, stum­bled across a great deal in a lo­cal cam­era shop. By way of back­ground, it’s one of the few Fu­ji­nons that’s out­side the fo­cal range of the two lens­es I orig­i­nal­ly picked up back in March 2013, the 18-55mm and the 35mm F1.4. It’s as­ton­ish­ing­ly, mind-bogglingly wide. You can stand right in front of a fair-sized tree and cap­ture the whole thing……

Fujifilm Macro Extension Tubes MCEX-11 & MCEX-16 | Derek Clark

I just got hold of Fuji’s MCEX-11 (11mm) and MCEX-16 (16mm) Macro Extension Tubes and I wanted to do a quick comparison. Fuji has a table on line with all the information in numbers form about focus distance etc, but photographers are visual beasts. So as I couldn’t find much in picture form on line, I thought I would show some examples of what you get from each of them. I have included one with just the lens, one with the 11mm, one with the 16mm and one with both tubes stacked together. All shots were taken with the camera as close to the subject as possible. I basically focused each lens to minimum distance and then moved the camera in until it achieved focus. I have kept the subject the same throughout (my X100S) so that you can get a good idea of what the difference is from lens to lens with each tube. All of these JPGS were shot square in camera (yes, your X camera shoots in square and 16:9 too:o). Please note, the wider lenses (14mm, 18mm & 23mm) worked with the MCEX-11, but the lens touched the X100 before focusing was achieved with the 16mm or both stacked. The 35mm lens went in so close with both tubes attached, that I had to remove the X100S lens hood…….

The Very Best X-Trans Lightroom Workflow | Hendrik Hazeu

OKOKOK – or maybe the very worst ;-) … All depends on your preferences and from which perspective you look at it ! I just prefer to spend as little time behind a computer screen as possible & rather’d go out take some PIX ! … Like this one, i found in Buitrago de Lozoya, Spain where there’s a great Pablo Picasso Museum: Go on and take a look, if you get a chance, you sure ain’t gonna regret it ! Anyway – in this Blog i’d like to share my X-Trans workflow. Yeah I know this kinda topic has been beaten to death elsewhere, but after reading ‚em all i developed my own „simplified“ workflow & hope it’s of some interest to you X-Trans fans out there ! So, before X-Trans life was easy: import images, move some sliders around, DONE ! Then along came Fuji with their ab-so-lute-ly AWESOME APS-C X-Trans sensor – and nothing worked no more ! Even Adobe’s latest re-incarnation of Lightroom 5.7 still don’t cut it for me: The converted RAW files still often demonstrate the dreaded „smearing effect“ on green foliage and other small details …

Fuji XF16-55mm 1:2.8 R LM WR | Leigh Miller

They must be taking a few pages out of the Apple playbook: Create something that’s easy for people to love. Once you have their attention, keep on giving them a steady stream of the good stuff. From iPod to Macs legions of buyers line up overnight to get the latest one. Fuji pulled that one off with the Xpro1 and X100. I have friends who despite upgrading to the XT-1 and X100S/T…retreat to those older cameras on occasion out of pure love. Only Leica used to make photographers behave like that. Although I wasn’t initially sold on the system partly because of the workflow issues, they slowly won me over with the lenses and continuous improvements to the camera lineup via firmware. For most working professionals there are two lenses that stand out, a 24-70 and 70-200mm. With those you can cover pretty much any situation from portraits to landscapes. We also like the constant F/2.8 aperture for low-light and control over depth of field…….
