Underground with the X100s | Matt Law

Since it’s unveiling in 2010 as the X100 to it latest iteration as the X100T, this little camera has garnered a massive following. Sure, it’s a retro-styled, fixed-lens rangefinder that seems most at home in the hands of a street photographer, but after almost a year of packing the X100s with me to places it probably should not have gone, I must admit, I am a total fanboy. My latest adventure with the camera was to test it out in one of the nastiest environments I’ve ever been foolish enough to bring expensive electronic equipment. Caves. In the past, I’ve packed Pentax and Nikon DSLRs into the dark, muddy depths of the earth and I’ve always come out with reasonable results. The sticking point (no one got stuck, don’t worry), though, was that these cameras were big. Too big for crawling around underground. The X100s is my first compact camera and it’s size has been one of the most stand-out features. Packing this little beauty through limestone tunnels, often only the width of my hips, proved to be almost effortless (there was still plenty of effort involved) in comparison to the bigger cameras. As always, the high-ISO performance of the X100s did not disappoint. Of course there was noise while shooting  at ISO 6400, however, considering what I was asking the camera to do, I was more than happy with the results…….

The Importance of Remaining Invisible | Valerie Jardin

A street photographer should be able to remain as invisible as possible in order to capture a candid moment without disturbing it. Street photography also requires anticipation and patience. It’s also important not to grab the shot and walk away, other opportunities may develop within seconds to give you another moment in time well worth immortalizing with your camera. This happened to me twice this week while I was roaming the streets of St Paul with my camera. Both times I spotted interesting subjects, grabbed the shot I envisioned and a second one within minutes. Both story telling images that can stand together or on their own. The Christmas Kiss was an obvious choice of a scene I could not possibly walk by without photographing…….

Making street portraits (with the Fuji x100) | Olivier Duong

Neill Soden is a photographer currently living in South Africa. He has a Fuji X100 and shares how he makes his portraits with the camera. If I see someone I would like to take a portrait of, I’ll get all my settings ready before approaching them, so I am ready to start shooting at once. I set it with my Custom 2 (B/W) in the Q-menu and get my focus point in the desired position. I will switch to the EVF, as it allows me to see my exposure and lighting as close as possible to the result I will get. My black and white customs setting is B&W+red, highlights to +1 and shadows to +2. Auto ISO is on, so my Fn button is set to ND-filter if it is needed. The key is to do it as quick as possible. Try not to take up too much of the person’s time and not too intrude too much. I will walk up to them with the camera loosely by my side. Getting it pushed straight into their face will not be welcomed by anyone. After I greeted and asked how they are doing, I will ask if I can take the a photo. In the event of there being a language barrier, I will point at the camera and ask if I can take the image. If they happen to say no, I thank them and walk away. I rarely find people to not gladly accommodate you……..

Cuba Diary #1 | Jorge Ledesma

Time flew, it was a short flight of only 40 minutes from Miami and in a blink of an eye we arrived in Boyero, Cuba (location of the Jose Marti Airport). From here we took a cab to La Habana, Cuba’s capital city, and the adventures began. At first, it was a huge culture shock but then I quickly realized just how special La Habana really is. La Habana is a beautiful city trapped in a time capsule but nonetheless it exudes a unique beauty that in my opinion can only be appreciated with your own eyes. Its for sure a one of the “must see” cities in the world. If you ask me how it looks, I would say its like if Paris and Madrid had a love child which they gave up for adoption and shipped to the Caribbean. We ate, we laughed, we shared, and overall had a wonderful time with my in-laws. I arrived a few days ago and I can’t wait to go back. Here’s a short gallery of what’s to come in the next few days……

Interview with Thomas Menk | FStopLounge

Thomas Menk defines himself as a fine art photographer, a designer, a philosopher, a composer, a father, a learner and a human being. He is undoubtedly all of those, but he’s also an official Fujifilm X-Photographer and the curator of a growing and popular collection of links to blog posts and web pages about the Fuji X series of cameras. Based on my interaction with him, he seems to me a soft-spoken, humble gentleman that is not going to be changed by his popularity. If you read his answers, I am sure you will agree with me.

F Stop Lounge: Tell us a bit about you and your photography.

Thomas Menk: I am an entrepreneur with different sectors of activity and companies. Photography was and is my passion since more than 20 years. Through various exhibitions in galleries and in my own gallery my photography work became a lucrative sideline in recent years, so now I need a new hobby :) My focus is in landscape and travel photography. However, I also love street photography – but without people ;-) As a landscape and nature photographer, I think that people even disturb the peace and harmony of the composition. Nevertheless, I find it very nice to find places in towns without people and hold them. Sometimes quite a challenge. Photography is a nice balance to my other activities and I love the luxury of not having to earn my living with this…….

My City | Neill Soden

I am no expert in the politics or issues of my country. Nor am I a pure street photographer. But I do like to tell stories of my country’s people and the city I live in with my images. Now, in my city Johannesburg – Jozi or Joburg as locals call it – we have areas where you would avoid going alone, especially with a camera. But there is a number of good things happing all over the city, thanks to some very cool and interesting projects. I took a few other photographers for a little walk in one of these areas, called the Maboneng Precinct. It is safe, has a good vibe and is a great place for food and social……..

A week in San Francisco with the Fuji X100s | Ian MacDonald

Three weeks ago today I returned from San Francisco, where I spent 5 days on a photography vacation. San Francisco is an amazing city, one I have visited many, many times.   Prior to this trip I had been insanely busy with work, family and business and this was an opportunity to be by myself, indulge in my photography, and visit with a close friend who now lives in Silicon Valley. I travelled extremely light, taking only my beloved Fuji X100s and a small travel tripod.  I will be making a blog post about that travel kit, which will be accompanying me from now on when I travel. I actually have many blog posts to make from this trip, but for now I wanted to share 20 of my favourite images I took that week.  These are in no particular order, and some will be the foundation of future blog posts….

Jumping Ship – From DSLR to Fuji X | Jason Pitcher

It all started in July 2013 when I bought a Fuji X100s. Apart from being a gorgeous camera, it has amazing image quality and portability. I’ve been babbling on about it on these pages for a while. For what I shoot, when I shoot, it does a fantastic job. I recently printed the final image from this post on fine art paper at 13″ x 19″ and it is gorgeous! So I was reviewing the pictures I’d taken through the last 6 months of the 2013, and I realized that I hardly touched the D800E. It was a rapidly depreciating asset that I almost never used. With the addition of the teleconverters for the X100s, The only thing I needed the Nikon for was long lens work or super wide angle stuff. I also came to realize that 36MP is overkill for my needs. I decided to take to leap and sell the Nikon and most of the glass. Because of my experience with the little Fuji, I wanted to replace it with a small, light CSC that could go super wide and long to cover what I needed the Nikon for, but in a smaller package. I was going to stay with Fuji because I now knew it and was comfortable with the processing workflow, which is a very important consideration. I also want a viewfinder. I will always want a viewfinder. Always. So, given the extensive range of interchangeable compact cameras they do, how do I decide…….

Vietnam – Ein Reisebericht | Stefan Schulze

Eigentlich war der Plan super. Wir fahren bis Bao Lac und steigen um in den Bus nach Meo Vac, unserem Ziel. Sieht auf der Karte aus wie ein Katzensprung. Wir kommen so spät an, dass es an diesem Tag nirgendwo mehr hingeht, denn leider gibt es keine Busverbindung zwischen diesen Orten und auch per Anhalter will uns niemand mitnehmen. Wir mieten uns ein Zimmer. Ein sehr, sehr schlechtes, denn nachts beginnt das große Krabbeln, das Fenster lässt sich nicht schließen und das Bett ist älter als wir beide zusammen. Ich schlafe trotzdem gut, aber leider niemand sonst, was nach dem Aufwachen etwas Ärger nach sich zieht. Am nächsten Tag landen wir durch Zufall im Haus einer Bauunternehmer-Familie und nach einigen Runden verhandeln, ignorieren, Schnaps und anschweigen fährt uns ein Jeep nach Meo Vac im äußersten Nordosten Vietnams……

How film image quality compares to my Fujifim X100S | Atmtx Photo

I’m having fun playing with the Rollei 35, a 45-year-old film camera that I bought recently for $75. To my delight, the darn thing actually works and works quite well too. It’s a total throwback, technology wise, and very different from shooting digital. But how does its image quality compare to modern digital cameras? Well, I just happened to have my Fujifilm X100S with me as I shot the Rollei. There’s a lot of things I can compare but I’m concentrating on image quality, particularly the colors. Under almost every metric, the X100S is going to be easier and more versatile. Its computer controlled metering, focusing and feedback allows me to shoot most any scene with ease. And as you may know, the X100S is my most used camera since March. But recently, I’ve realized that film has some very nice color properties. So how does film and the X100S compare? …..
