Fuji X-E1

A trip to Venice with the two Fuji’s | Gary Smith

Maggie and I have recently returned from our Venice trip and I’ve spent the last four days editing the images, so I thought I’d share some with you. Despite still owning a Nikon DSLR kit my preferred choice for travelling is my Fuji Kit, and has been for a few years now. So I took a stripped down kit consisting of my Fuji X-E1, Fuji X-M1 and Fuji’s 18-55mm f2.8/4, 55-200mm f3.5/4.6 and the 35mm f1.4 – leaving my 14mm 2.8 and 60mm 2.4 at home. My modus operandi for daytime photography was to take the Fuji X-E1 plus the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm, these fitted comfortably into my Lowepro Passport Sling bag, with some additional dividers fastened with velcro…….

Spring a year ago – Landscape photography | Mac Sokulski

It’s been exactly a year ago, when these photographs were taken.  Sometimes I wonder, why it takes me such a long time to share them.  I think it’s the combination of procrastination and being lazy.  It’s not that I don’t want to share, or think these are bad images…. I mean I wouldn’t be sharing them at all if I thought they were bad.  Just that I have a huge back log of images that just sitting in a dropbox folder, all dusted and almost forgotten.  It seems that I must be taking too many images :) I think it’s also a little bit of a memory lane.  Going through the old images and think about the times they were taken.  Funny thing is, I remember exactly what I was doing at that time.  What me and Kasia were talking about.  Yet I can’t remember what I did last week. Funny that…….

Classic Chrome on Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1 | Stephen Bray

PEOPLE FREQUENTLY ASK WHY FUJIFILM NEVER OFFERED CLASSIC CHROME AS A RENDERING OPTION FOR THEIR X-PRO1 AND X-E1 CAMERAS. I confess that I’ve googled to see if this update is available on a few occasions. It isn’t, or at least the availability is not obvious. In fact, both the X-Pro1 and X-E1 are boxed with a custom version of SilkyPix a RAW converter that is specially adapted for the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor. Classic Kodachrome was included within the rendering options available from the end of February 2015. This is often overlooked, however, because the .jpg files from all the X-Series cameras are so good many, especially professionals, avoid using RAW. RAW processing increases workflow time, and when you’re busy, rather than a hobbyist, time is money……..

Using Manual Lenses With the Fuji X System | Roy Cruz

It’s the lunar new year here in Korea, so I’d like to wish you all 새해복많이받으세요 (best wishes for the new year)! I’m at my in-laws’ place for the holidays so I thought I’d do a bit of blogging between the food, drinks, and karaoke :D. Using manual lenses with the Fujifilm X system is a great option to experiment and expand your camera system.  Third-party lens manufacturers such as Samyang produce very high quality and relatively affordable manual focus lenses.  Moreover, numerous adapters on the market open the doors to endless possibilities that span multiple brands and decades worth of lenses.  From Canon to Nikon, M42 to Leica, the rabbit hole goes very deep for using adapters and lenses for your Fuji X.  Yes, you lose autofocus functionality, but the manual focus assist options provided by mirrorless cameras has made manual lenses very easy to use. Personally, I went for a combination of modern third-party and classic M42 screw mount lenses……..

Photography: Fujifilm X-E1 Rediscovered | Michael St. Jean

Ever since I bought the X-T1, my Fujifilm X-E1 has lived in exile in a bag in the closet. But that was then and this is now and the X-E1 is back in use for two reasons:
 

  1. I bought a larger messenger to use for work (Timbuk2 Alchemist) which not only holds my work stuff, but can also accommodate the X-E1 with 27mm pancake lens. It is comforting to have a quality camera on hand throughout the day.
  2. I found a $3 lens hood in a box of miscellaneous stuff that fits the 27mm pancake lens making the X-E1 + grip + 27mm + hood combination look and feel really, really, retro cool……..

2015 Recap: 1 Year With the Fujifilm | RIVALSv

I can’t believe 2015 is over… Actually I can’t believe I made it through the entire year. Last September I was let go from my job for improper content on social media (as most of you know). It was one of those bittersweet moments, where I felt shitty because I was fired, but also excited about the opportunities that were now in front of me. I admit early on I was scared, I went from a full time job where I made a decent amount of money to literally having no income whatsoever, if that wasn’t pressure enough I was expecting a kid as well. I needed an outlet, a vacation or a road trip, something to take my mind off of everything. I visited Chicago that month, I took nothing with me but a change of clothes and my Canon 6D with 40mm f/2.8 lens. I literally shot for 3 days straight, non-stop…..

Mirrorless Reflections | F. James Conley

This is not a gear blog. When the gear matters to the creative output, however, it’s time to write a gear post. Such is the case when it comes to fashion photography. We’ve previously discussed the preliminary thinking that goes into a fashion shoot, but once the photographer and the designer understand the creative vision, it’s time for the photographer to implement it through the magic ingredients of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Camera considerations in the studio are fewer than on the street. In the studio with strobes, the maximum shutter speed will be the camera’s sync speed. ISO in the studio is a much more controllable artistic effect, but unless there is something particular about your camera sensor’s high-ISO noise that you like, those considerations are usually handled in development. Most of the attention in the studio is on creating the right kind of lighting and the right action with the model. In a studio, it’s possible to work the same idea repeatedly until the image gets made. The story is very different on the street, with only available light. Shooting fashion on the street is an order of magnitude harder than studio photography, but the images can be so much more engaging……..

Liverpool | Rory Prior

Since moving up north three years ago, I’ve been meaning to visit Liverpool. Finally the opportunity arose last month, so I jumped on the train with fellow photographer and Fuji enthusiast Richard Gascoigne, for the one and a half hour journey to Merseyside. I think it’s not a stretch to say modern Liverpool is most famous for The Beatles and its premier league football club, rather than its mercantile history. Like its northern siblings, it suffered a long painful period of stagnation and decline as traditional industries collapsed or were made obsolete. It’s only comparatively recently (the last 20 or so years), that serious efforts have been made to revitalise and regenerate the city. Its skyline now has its fair share of gleaming glass and steel office blocks, standing incongruously with elegant Victorian structures thankfully protected for future generations. Unlike in Leeds and Manchester, the process of regeneration feels less complete, and in many places appears stalled entirely. No where is this more evident than the sprawling northern docks. Listed buildings and world heritage sites lie surrounded by temporary barriers, or locked behind tall metal gates with vast swaths of empty land that no one seems to have much use for……

Summer Life | Adriel Henderson

It’s been a hot summer! Here in Oregon we’ve been breaking heat records – consistently in the upper 90’s, some days over 100. With little rain, the lakes are low and the sky is a yellow haze. Vintage Instagram, no filter needed. Honestly, I haven’t pulled the little Fuji X out as much as I should. My excuse? Partly the heat, mostly the endless list of projects that seem to accompany summer. But there have been a few occasions here and there. My eldest, David, turned 18, graduated High School, and picked up his driving license – all within a handful of weeks! Certainly some proud dad moments there…….

Fuji X-E1 on Iceland (18-55mm, Walimex 8mm, LR6) |
Digital Photography Review

After years of almost only reading and benefiting from your great posts here, here comes a post with pictures from my trip to Iceland. We spent two weeks on Iceland, which was our first time there. The four of us rented a 4×4 and went around the island. The weather was changing every other ten minutes and the conditions for taking photos were against us most of the time (e.g. back light, very hard contrasts, rain, storm, snow.. :)). Also it was not yet very „green“ on the island, due to the quite long winter. And we couldn’t take us as much time as we wanted to spot out the best photo places, as it wasn’t a „photoshoot Journey“ only :) ……
