Fuji X-E1

Panorama Photography Meets the Fuji X Series | John Miskelly

I would like to start off by clarifying what we commonly understand panoramic photography to be. Panorama photography is a technique that enables us to capture an image with an elongated field of view, approximating or greater to that of the human eye. This is widely considered to be around 160° by 75°, which equates to an aspect ratio of 2:1 or an image that is at least twice as wide as it is high. Some panoramic images are 3:1, 4:1 and larger, sometimes even covering the full 360° field of view. The above image of the Trevi Fountain in Rome was the first stitched panorama I attempted with my original X-E1 and XF 14mm lens. Fuji X-E1 and XF 14mm lens. Exposures 2.5 seconds, f8 and ISO 200 consisting of 8 images. While there are a number of different ways to produce a panoramic image, I’m going to tell you how I approach this subject, specifically using my Fuji X system. First of all, in terms of taking the image, I use a specialist panorama head that rotates around what is called the nodal point, to capture multiple images of the subject. By rotating around this nodal point, we avoid parallax error (where there is a change in the apparent position of a closer object relative to a more distant object). I then take the sequence of images, say typically between 5 and 7 images, and stitch them together in specialist stitching software in my computer. In my case I use PTGui Pro……..

2 years of mirrorless shooting | Philipp Winter

About 2 years ago i made a difficult but rational decision. I decided to let go the most desired camera model i ever owned, the Canon 5D Mark 2. Not just the body, but my complete set of lenses and accessoires i purchased all the years before. I seriously love this camera. I captured so many lovely shots with it, carried it to the highest mountains and to far shores and took some great family videos with it. But as time went by, the big camera bag stayed at home more often. I didn’t wanto to carry around all the lenses, the big camera body, and taking pictures in public made everyone look at the guy with the big ass camera. I definitively prefer to stay in the background. So these images were the last ones to be captured by a FF camera…….

Gariz Leather Half-Case for Fujifilm X-E1/X-E2 Review |
Romanas Naryškin

Let’s be completely honest – other than style, leather half-cases for mirrorless cameras serve just about no purpose. It really is all about style – not protection, not ergonomic improvement, none of that. Any change in those areas is, more often than not, unintentional. A side effect. So, when talking about such an accessory, what matters most is design and quality of the product. One is only ever going to pay good money for an accessory that’s not actually that practical or sensible to own if it looks great and is made with utmost precision. Gariz, a small Korean camera accessory manufacturer few have even heard of, has its hands full, so to speak…….

What Makes Someone Jump Ship ? | Joe Giordano

Of course what I mean by this is what makes someone like myself sell all my DSLR gear that I have grown so accustomed to using for years and switch to mirrorless.  Gear that I have trusted to help me get some truly great images over the years. My first experience with the Fuji X system was when I had my Nikon in service for a sensor cleaning.  I had ran across this person selling a used Fuji X-E1 with a 35mm f/1.4 lens for a decent price on Craigslist so I shot into Manhattan one afternoon and bought it.  I spent the rest of the afternoon doing some street photography then I hopped on the train for my trip home for the night. I really didn’t think too much of the camera at first because I didn’t think I would be able to adjust to the slower focusing of the X-E1.  The Nikon was lightning fast compared to this Fuji but a funny thing happened when I imported the Fuji images into Lightroom.  I was amazed at how many keepers I had and the amazing colors and contrast this little camera was capable of.  To be sure it wasn’t just luck I went out the next day and did some more shooting and again I was pleasantly surprised when I viewed the images on my computer.  This was the beginning of my love affair with the Fuji X system…….

Fuji X-E1 and X-E2 L Bracket Grip with Leather | Andrew Newson

I recently purchsased a cheap L bracket grip for my Fuji X-E2. I purchased this from a seller on Amazon called XCSOURCE, I would link to the exact prodcut (LB-XE1) but unfortunately it seems it’s currently out of stock. I found lots of options for these grips and some are as much as £75. Well I shopped around and decided not to go for the very cheapest, but for a slightly more expensive version that has a slot for a coin as well as an allen key bolt, for fixing to the camera. I figured that I am going to be out somewhere and need to remove the grip for some reason and be without an allen key, the extra few pounds seemed like a good idea. The grip cost £30 and it fits just fine and allows access to the battery compartment and SD card, very useful! I bought the grip for when I’m shooting landscapes in the winter. That is the time I normally throw myself in to a project which involves early starts and cold temperatures. I wanted something that added some bulk to the camera as sometimes I will be wearning gloves and also had an arca swiss plate for attaching to an arca swiss head on a tripod…….

X Photography: Chasing the Wind – Les Voiles de St Tropez | Simon Weir

Les Voiles – literally “The Winds” – take place from April to October across the French riviera.  Each race brings together some of the most beautiful traditional wooden yachts alongside the most extraordinary modern sailing boats for a week long regatta in beautiful ports such as Antibes and Saint-Tropez. My good friend and fellow Fuji user Serge Krougikoff who runs Create-Away, a photography workshop company based in the south of France, has been talking about running a trip based around the regattas for some time and when he suggested we get together try it out I didn’t hesitate to say yes!  We first teamed up with professional skipper Francois in Antibes in June and the trip was such a success that we agreed to do a second test-trip in Saint-Tropez in October. Nestled between Cannes and Marseille the picturesque medieval port of Saint-Tropez would be stunning even without the boats.  When you add some of the worlds finest vintage and classic yachts it becomes a feast of varnish and brass……..

First Frost with the Fuji X-E1 | Thomas Fitzgerald

After a very mild winter so far here in Dublin, we had the first severe frost of the year yesterday. I awoke to a beautiful covering of white across the ground. The fields surrounding where I live were glistening with their white crystal coverings, and the rooftops were as white as if it had snowed. I had been planning to head out to do some photography anyway, so the winter scene was a bonus. I brought my trusty little X-E1 and the 35mm lens. I wish I had the macro lens, as there was lots of detail (soon) but the fuji 35mm can get pretty close on its own. Anyway, I won’t bore you with too many technical details, so instead lets just get straight to some pictures. The winter light is really beautiful this time of year, with the combination of the low sun and the deep blue of the sky making for some great contrasting colour. I was just having a bit of fun with the camera, and so I wasn’t out to get anything specific. Most of these were taken in Dublin’s St. Stephen’s Green Park, while some of the others were taken on the way. Enjoy……..

Bekenntnisse eines Fujifilm X-Fotografen | Christian Ahrens

Seit der Photokina 2010 bin ich X-Fotograf. Da war ich am Stand von Fujifilm und begrabbelte entzückt ein Modell der gerade vorgestellten Fujifilm X-100. Bei der funktionierte außer dem revolutionären Sucher zwar noch nichts, aber ich wusste, dass ich mir diese Kamera kaufen würde. Das habe ich rund ein halbes Jahr später auch getan. Dann kam Fujifilm mit der XE-Reihe und der Möglichkeit, Wechselobjektive zu verwenden. Ich liebte sie. Dann habe ich sie auf einem Segeltörn in die Ostsee geworfen (in trauter Gemeinsamkeit mit einem weiteren Objektiv und einem iPad). Shit happens. Eine zweite XE-1 wurde angeschafft, weitere Objektive. Und jetzt – vor wenigen Tagen erst – die XE2. Ich bin X-Photographer. Mit Leidenschaft und Liebe. Ein Bekenntnis und eine Einladung…….

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?…….
