Taj Mahal III – Love Letter to the Fuji XF 14/2.8R | Little big traveling camera

In my previous blog post of my visit to the Taj Mahal all shots were taken with the kit lens. In this blog post they are taken with my favorite Fuji lens – the XF14/2.8 R. As I moved closer to the Taj Mahal it was clear to me that now is the time for the 14mm lens. I already praised this lens a lot on my blog. If you scroll down to take a look at the tag cloud of my blog you can see that the 14mm is my main lens and there is a reason for it. The 14mm (or 21mm in full frame terms) is a surprisingly flexible lens. It has many advantages not only over the kit lens but also over the 10-24 but of course it depends on your shooting style and subject if you value them as much as I do. Here are the most important ones:
 

  • zero distortion
  • small and light
  • wide but not too wide
  • offer a focus clutch for easy manual focus (and zone focus)
  • uses the same lens hood than the kit lens……..

Al Ain Desert Picnic | Morten Byskov

My excitement grew, as we drew near to the spot Andrew had picked for our desert picnic. I used to have the same feeling when we would arrive at a new ski destination, set to explore. Do we have water, do we have food, how long would we last out here if we got lost? Those thoughts were not real concerns, as we never ventured more than a few hundred meters away from the car, but my imagination had free roam. It was so quiet I could hear the ringing in my ears. That did not last long though as we started running around the sand dunes, believing for an instant we were half our age. We snapped pictures from every conceivable angle. Our son had some fun photo-shopping a few of them. Great job Mik and what a wonderful surprise in my inbox this morning…..

Landscapes with the X Series | Andy Mumford

Back when I first switched to Fuji around 6 months ago I was already pretty convinced that the X Series cameras would be ideal for travel because of their size and weight but at the time I wasn’t totally sure that I would be able to use them as my first choice landscape camera. I’d been using a Nikon D800E for a number of years and wasn’t sure whether the X System was really designed with landscape photographers in mind.  In my last blog (HERE) I tested the image quality of the X-T10 with the 10-24mm and 55-200mm zooms against my Nikon and found that while there is obviously a resolution difference, the difference in detail and quality was negligible. Since then I’ve used both the X-T1 and X-T10 extensively for landscapes both at home in Portugal and while travelling around Indonesia for a month last summer.  My first landscape shoot with the X-T10 was when I led a workshop for a sunrise shoot at Lisbon’s iconic Vasco da Gama bridge.  I was impressed by how intuitive it was to use and……

X-PLR | Marrakesh | V. Opoku

Marrakesh ; Beautiful and Chaotic. This short trip to Marrakesh served as a timely reminder of why I love travelling. I want to see the world. I want to educate myself. I want to grow and develop as a person. I travel to explore and experience different cultures and to see things through the perspective of others. I travel to build connections and trade stories, to try new foods and hear different music. “The further I get, the further I want to go” – There is so much more out there! I had a great time exploring this mystical city with the awesome folks at Travel Noire, let’s do it again sometime……..

Using the X-T10 and the XF23mm f/1.4 on the Ryukyu Islands | Pierre Aden

A couple of months ago I looked at my photography gear and saw three cameras with 9 lenses, all of them for Micro Four Thirds. I did a good job closing every possible gap regarding focal length and aperture to be prepared for every possible photography challenge on earth. But here is the thing: I had way to many options and thought more about the best gear for a photo while looking at a scene and making photos became more work than fun. And even though I had all these lenses I STILL missed something many people call the full frame look. For me this special look that some people see and some don’t is the possibility to seperate your subject from the background with wide angle lenses like a 35mm equivalent……….

„I’m Going to 59 Parks in 52 Weeks“ (she said) | Jonathan Irish

59 parks in 52 weeks — that’s fewer than one per week — and it’s all happening by road, save a few plane rides to reach island destinations. Everybody I’ve told seems genuinely excited for me. I am excited for me. And I am excited for Jon, my sig-O and better half, with whom I’ve dreamed about this project for over a year. In four weeks, we’ll be packing up an Airstream trailer and heading out on what we think will be the Greatest American Road Trip—visiting all 59 U.S. National Parks during 52 weeks to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service. Good lord, it’s really happening. Honestly, we didn’t think it actually would. When I mount all of the obstacles that have stood between the red and green light on this project, I can’t see a clear line between the two. At some point, we became so invested in the idea that we decided that we were all in and just needed to go for it. It was then we started quietly planning…..

India with the X100T and X-Pro1 | Paul Perton

India is incredible – just as it says on the box. It’s been on my to-do list for years, but it was only recently that I finally set foot in this land of enchantment. Even if you travel regularly, you’ll understand that India isn’t somewhere to simply head for with a suitcase and a camera. In fact, it’s hard to imagine any kind of getting ready can prepare you for India’s streets, people, hubbub and reality. I’ve lived in Africa for more than four decades, so I’m fairly used to the proximity of people, poverty and a basic rural existence, yet India still caught me out. It’s almost overwhelming. A word of advice; travel light. It’s unremittingly hot, humid and busy. Suitcases full of formal clothes and camera bags laden with DSLRs are not the solution and you won’t get the chance to don the suit you brought along anyway……..

My personal 2015 | Stockografie

Wow this year past by fast. I can still remember January of this year awaiting the next spring to arrive and especially the month of May. My wife and I had booked a one week visit to Marrakesh. I was so much looking forward to that. Befor I realized it, it was May and we were heading off to Morocco. After that the year became the most tough one I have ever had. Not photography wise but personally. I had some really heavy hick ups to do with my day to day job. Man that was hard. My wife helped me over the hard times and of course going out and photographing just the odd things helped as well. Anyway, this small post is to give you an overview of what I think are my best photographs which I took in 2015. Interestingly enough most of them have been taken with the Fujifilm X100T. At the end of this post I will give you the chance to vote which shot you think is the best one. So do note hesitate to vote your favorite one……..

The Great American Road Trip | Adriel Henderson

We just returned from the trip we’ve been planning and dreaming about for a long time, three weeks jaunting around the American Southwest in our little motorhome; California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, returning to Oregon through an Idaho perfectly flocked in snow. Some beautiful lands out there America! To keep things interesting I gave myself a little photography challenge: Could I capture the trip through the fixed 23mm focal length of Fuji’s X100t? No wide angle. No long telephoto. Just a ’standard‘ 35mm equivalent view of the world. There is some reasoning to this challenge, in that I plan to offer a photography class next year and the X100t seems like a great camera to use in teaching photography – small, simple manual controls, an excellent lens with a fixed focal length, and beautiful results. But I needed to put that assumption to the test, so I picked up a copy and dedicated it as my go-to camera for this trip…..

X-Pro1 in India | Ashok Viswanathan

My primary interest is black & white but the richness and flexibility of digital colour fascinates me. Photoshop & digital imaging has evolved in the last 10 years and changed the way we handle images. Apart from traditional images I enjoy producing watercolours, line drawings, solarisations, and posterisations. More recent explorations are in the field of HDR, blending modes and newer creative software such as Post workshop. My subject matter is mainly landscapes, seascapes, portraits and travel images. I am passionate and deeply involved in my photography. Although a self taught amateur my work has won awards and been exhibited in national & international exhibitions in several countries including some published magazine work……
