Fuji X-E1 vs. Nikon D800 – David and Goliath | Jiri Ruzek

That’s really too much. Comparing one of the best cameras of all time, Nikon D800 worth over € 2200 with Fuji X-E1 for some € 500? I totally agree. So why did I do something like that? No mystery. I had the famous Nikon D800 over one week at home and because it is almost exactly one year when I sold my old D700 and bought Fujifilm X-E1, I wanted to try it. The D800 would be definitely my next step in the Nikon line, so I also wanted to know how big difference is between those two cameras – the one I bought and the one I didn’t buy. What benefits would I get in D800 against D700? Full frame sensor (no change), giant 36 megapixel resolution instead of the current 12, a high quality video (instead of none). And again, over € 2000 investment into the camera body. It is well known that I chose a small mirrorless camera Fujifilm X-E1. Investments (the body) was below € 500. The camera has an APS-C sensor with 16 megapixels resolution, its video is usable, but it’s not the pride of X-E1. The cameras are totally different, how could I compare them? But I had to do it. This urge to tinker with it and maybe even humbly admit that perhaps you might be elsewhere. Or not?…….

Fujifilm announces macro tubes, tethering software and
X-series firmware availability | DPreview

Fujifilm has announced two macro extension tubes for its X-series interchangeable lens cameras, the MCEX-11 and MCEX-16. Compatible with Fuji’s XF and XC lenses, they offer full AE function and are designed to ‘seamlessly blend into the original look and feel of the X-series’. The MCEX-11 and MCEX-16 will be available in mid-December for $99.95. Also making its debut is Fuji’s PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows v1.0. It provides two operation modes, Camera Mode and PC Mode for making exposure adjustments either on the camera or connected computer. Macro tubes and tethering software may appeal to a smaller portion of Fujifilm’s X-series owners, but their introduction signals a continued commitment from Fujifilm to build a viable system for serious photographers. Fujifilm has also given a December 18 release date for X-T1 firmware promised at Photokina.

Westfjords Day 1: Keflavik to Ísafjörður | Michael St. Jean

This was my third trip to Iceland. My intent was to take some pics, reflect, and submit to some geographic OCD. My first trip to Iceland included eight glorious days driving the Ring Road. Three years later I returned with my family so they could experience this beautiful country and landscape. They got to experience a lot of the south coast along with the usual Geysir > Gullfoss > Þingvellir circuit. New to me on this family trip was a visit to the Snæfellsnes. So on my map of Iceland I had completed the big circle and several peninsulas, but there was one major region left unseen: The Westfjords. And it bothered me that to have a whole region unexplored. I flew from Boston arriving midnight at Keflavik, walked over to the Airport Hotel and grabbed a room for the night. After a good night’s sleep and an Icelandic breakfast of breads, meats, cheeses, muesli and yogurt, I walked back to the airport to and picked up my rental car. My destination was Ísafjörður, far to the north…….

Souvenirs de Paris , la deuxième partie | Michelle George

I’ve just got back from vacation trip to Paris, this time it was for pleasure, not work…though after seeing Peter Lindberg’s current exhibition at the Gagosian gallery I felt an overwhelming need to take some pictures. So I contacted my friend and model Gina Woitke who happens to live in Paris with a view to combining street photography and portraiture. All I had on this trip was my Fuji X e1 with its 18-55 mm kit lens so we decided to keep it very raw. Stripped back, no make up, no styling and no retouching. All Post production is done in Adobe Lightroom with a view to give it a filmic look……..

Left to rot and desintegrate… | Alain Mijngheer

Left to rot and desintegrate…

I went to France a few weeks ago, in first instance to photograph decaying naval ships awaiting their final destination cfr the scrapyard. See my previous post ” Final destination” for this : http://am-fotografie.blogspot.be/2014/10/final-destination.html. But France has more to offer of course and has also a few ship cemetaries where ships are left to rot and desintegrate. A lust for the photographic eye if you are into decay, water and clouds… Anyhow, being there I visited 3 such cemetaries : Le Fret, Rostellec and Camaret-sur-mer. In Le Fret only a few carcasses, in Camaret-sur-mer the ships a placed in such a place to be considered as a touristic attraction and then we have Rostellec that is the most photogenic place of the 3 with the biggest choice of decay. As I later saw, it was forbidden to go near the wrecks … but my French isn’t that good so I didn’t understand the sign ;) For the more adventurous “infiltration” of the Navy ships I opted for my Fuji X-E1 coupled with only the 18-55mm kitlens and my choice was just the same here, my Nikon D600 remaining in the car as merely backup camera…as it often does or not to say always these days. So much for the little story, now on to the pictures…..

LONG EXPOSURE COLLECTION 2013 | Wilson Chiew

Back to April 2012, When I first purchased the variable ND filter (Vivitar Series 1) from Ebay. I desperate wanted to try out the newly acquired filter. Thus then, my bosses, colleagues and I went for a short trip in Kuantan’s Teluk Cempedak Beach and I couldn’t wait to shoot it with my X-Pro1 and 35mm. I got my first long exposure picture since then and these are the photos I uploaded to internet and felt proud about it. However, as I go through at the photos by the time I posting this. They just don’t look nice at all (Not afraid to show them). These pictures are over sharpening (probably due to filter glass quality so I did the harsh sharpening), color casting (overturned the variable ND filter and tried to have Big Stopper effect but epic failed), over exposure at the top part and composition are out……

All photos were taken by Fujifilm X-Pro1 and XE-2 with Samyang 8mm, 23mm, 35mm and 56mm

London and Fuji strike again, with an evening detour to the BWPA |
Lizzie Shepherd

Earlier this week I made my second trip of the summer down to London – this time a flying visit of less than 24 hours. I had two reasons for going down. Firstly to attend the British Wildlife Photography Awards, having been delighted to find I had a photograph shortlisted and printed in the book. Secondly to visit Charlie Waite’s wonderful exhibition of both old and recent work at the National Theatre – I have long been a big fan of Charlie’s work and was so pleased the exhibition was extended by a few weeks, allowing me the opportunity to get down to see it.

X-E1 vs. X-E2 | Fuji vs. Fuji

In this post I’ll address what I see as the major differences between Fuji’s X-E1 and their newly released body update, the X-E2. The refreshing thing about how Fuji is operating these days is all their recent X-Series cameras (aside from the X-A1) share the same APS-C “X-Trans CMOS” sensor so picture quality is nearly identical across all the bodies with the possible exception of the X-E2 and its Lens Modulation Optimizer (more on that later). Removing picture quality from the equation makes doing a head to head comparison much easier. But there are still some notable differences. Let’s take a look……..
