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 :) ……

Rotterdam’s Legacy | Sebastiaan van Wijk

Rotterdam – New York. Minor obligations brought me to Rotterdam this morning, which means to bring a camera along. This time I decided to shoot the ss Rotterdam. She’s a 1956 double propped steamer, and brought back to the Ports of Rotterdam in august 2008. Originally in order to celebrate the 100th anniversary of RDM Shipyards, where she was once build. After having served the HAL (Holland Amerika Lijn) as a transatlantic liner between Rotterdam – New York, and after bankruptcy of Premier Cruises where she carried the name Rembrandt as a cruise ship, the Port of Rotterdam decided in 2001 to bring this piece of maritime heritage back to her roots…….

X-T10 vs. X-T1 vs. X-E2 | Fuji vs. Fuji

Thanks to the rumour mills, damn near everything about the X-T10 has been revealed. If you haven’t read enough about it already, you can read more in my thorough review here. What I haven’t seen much, if any of, is how this camera stacks up against Fuji’s other cameras. While it’s beyond obvious the X-T10 takes its cues from the X-T1 in name and body-styling, the X-E line is also a good comparison when it comes to size, weight, feature-set, and price point. This article will compare the three. Much of this piece has been lifted from my newly updated X-T1 vs. X-E2 vs. X-Pro1 article, which remains one of the more popular pages on Fuji vs. Fuji. I’ve opted not to include the X-Pro1 in this comparison as time and firmware updates have left it so far in the past, I can’t imagine it being much of a consideration for those interested in the X-T10……

Adventures in Nice, with the Fuji X-E1 | Thomas Fitzgerald

I posted some of my images from the recent trip that I took to Nice, in the south of France last week. As I wrote, most of the time I just used my iPhone to take photos, mainly because we were there to relax and take it easy. I did have my little fuji with me too though, and I did get to take some shots with that too. At first I was having a little difficulty shooting with the X-E1. The reason was that the sun was really bright, and I was finding it hard to see both the viewfinder and the screen. Images on the viewfinder were really dark, and because I’m a glasses wearer too, my eyes don’t go right up against the eye socket, so sometimes the glare can make it even harder to see, but I’m not really sure what was going on. It’s possible that the evf in my camera is dying, as it was quite dim. Anyway, I eventually got used to it and interpreting what I was seeing with how it would turn out, but at first it certainly wasn’t helping the relaxing! I was longing for an optical viewfinder, and I really appreciated the old pentaprism view of the film camera I had with me. It’s not generally an issue in the normally dim Irish sunshine! ……
