Das Carl Zeiss Distagon 35mm f1.4 ZM | Mehrdad Samak-Abedi

Auf der Photokina 2014 kündigte die Carl Zeiss AG das Distagon 35mm f1.4 ZM für das Leica Bajonett an. Bei einem Straßenpreis von knapp 2000 Euro kann man es nicht unbedingt als Schnäppchen bezeichnen, jedoch ist es recht offensichtlich, welchen Kundenkreis Carl Zeiss mit diesem Objektiv ansprechen will. Vergleicht man das Distagon mit seinem Leica Pendant, das Summilux 35mm (ca. 4500 Euro), sieht das mit dem Schnäppchen schon ganz anders aus. Wie immer ist das eine Frage des Standpunktes. Ich gehöre zur ersten Gruppe, also zu der, die das nicht als ein Schnäppchen sehen und eher mit Objektiven vergleichen, die preislich weiter unten angesiedelt sind. Aktuell fällt mir da im Moment nur das Voigtländer  35mm f1.2 Nokton II oder das sehr charaktervolle Voigtländer 35mm f1.4 Nokton ein. Das Nokton II habe ich von einem Fotofreund derzeit geliehen bekommen, aber bitte erwartet hier keine Vergleiche, ich komme derzeit nicht so zum Ausprobieren des selben. Hier soll es aber eh nur um das Distagon gehen. Und bevor ich das vergesse zu erwähnen: Ich bin kein Technikfreak, will sagen: Das ist hier ist ein Nutzer-Erfahrungsbericht. Ich verliere mich hier weniger in technischen Details (ganz einfach, weil ich davon auch viel zu wenig Ahnung habe, aber psssst!!) als mehr in aus dem Fotoalltag gewonnenen Erkenntnissen……

V. Opoku | K-pture blog

This time, we meet V. Opoku. V. is a wedding photographer based in London (UK) and a Fuji X camera user. I’ve discovered his work a few weeks ago with his Fuji X100s review and I was hooked. I liked his style, his vision and his work for sure. Plus, V. is a really nice guy. Enjoy!
 
Que tal?, mi llamo V. Opoku, but I go by just « V », most of the time. London is home for the time being but I am working on a move to Barcelona at some point this year – wish me luck! I usually grow a beard during the winter months and have recently started to keep it throughout the summer too…….

Learn Photography from Pro Photographers | V. Opoku

My name is V. Opoku, but usually just V does the trick and I am documentary wedding photographer based in London, UK (for now). I am also a bit of a traveller, you know the type of guy to book a one way ticket somewhere and then figure things out from there – yep, one of those guys. About 20 months ago, I started to use the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography. It was not an intentional switch from DSLR to Mirrorless because at the time I did not have any gear (my Nikon D700 kit got stolen). Shooting exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Series was just a discovery that worked out well for me. My vision is to build human connections whilst creating a body of work that clients will cherish for years to come. And I feel that my current kit has really helped me bring that vision to life ; In the sense that the smaller and more discreet cameras and lenses helps me to blend in much easier on wedding days……

Fuji X Adventures in North America – Rust Belt Pilgrim |
Peter Dareth Evans

This is McKean County, Pennsylvania. Once the Allegheny hills were a forest of oil derricks, stretching as far as the eye could see along the ridges and valleys between Bradford, Olean, Kane and Smethport.  But then after the second world war the Mid-West oil industry collapsed when richer and easier pickings were found elsewhere. Now the trees have returned to the hills of McKean County, where they tactfully mask the industrial scars of old leaking pipes and rusting machinery. Here in the deep forest you hike and hunt alone at your peril. Folk have fallen through the rotting boards covering the shafts of old oil wells. A sudden snap and then a long agonising tumble, a broken leg and no phone reception – miles from civilisation. So I made sure I stuck to the roadside for my photography. But still, here and there nestled in isolated pockets on the winding country roads, industry survives. Smoke rises from the stacks. Steam boils from the pipes. You can hear the hum of machinery and the clanking of gears and wheels. This is rust belt America, but here and there you can see signs of recovery. The county capital of Bradford may have lost half her population in the crash that followed the 1940’s, but unlike the deprived ex-mining communities in the valleys of South Wales there’s still hope…….

Fuji XPRO 1 Review | Rory Lewis

Fuji XPRO-1 is a versatile compact DSLR Camera a snap at (£698.00) with two free Lenses on offer till 31st March 2015.  Seeing this great deal I knew I should write a review of the camera since I purchased my own XPRO-1 a year ago. If you are looking for a good compact DSLR for travel, weddings, or even studio portraiture the XPRO-1 is a good camera to have in your bag. The superb build quality and design make the X-Pro-1 the perfect camera for travel. With a strong light weigh magnesium alloy body, the camera is rugid and easy to carry. Taking the camera to New York last summer I spent one morning capturing some of the cities iconic buildings.  The XPRO’s  superb 16-megapixel sensor mimics the structure of silver halide film delivering brilliantly sharp images. Another feature, and my personal favourite is the cameras film simulation mode. Giving you the ability to adjust the look of your images, to match the attributes of Velvia, Astia and Monochrome film……..

Comparing Apples and Pears – Fuji’s XT-1 v X-Pro1 | Dave Young

Having had my Fuji XT-1 for around 3 months now, it’s fair to say I’ve been itching to write a comparison review of it next to my well loved, but at times frustrating Fuji X-Pro1 for a while now. Following the recent firmware upgrade of both models, now seems to be a good time to re-appraise my thoughts on the X-Pro1 and how it fits in alongside the XT-1. I’ll warn you now though, this isn’t so much of a technical appraisal, rather a look, touch and feel kind of review. For sure, it appears my X-Pro1 has become something of a shelf queen. As much as it saddens me to say, when I reach for a camera now, it’s the XT-1 I reach for. With perhaps the exception of the X-Pro1’s fantastic looks, the XT-1 outperforms the X-Pro1 in almost every situation…….

COMMENT: AF+MF Mode Update on X-Pro1 and X-T1 | Jeff Carter

….When using AF to select the point of focus it is critical when using the fast aperture lenses such as the 35mm f1.4 and 56mm f1.2 that the focus point is checked to make sure the focus is spot on. By keeping the shutter release half pressed you can use manual focus to fine tune before fully pressing the release to take the shot. Using the Electronic View Finder (EVF) and Focus Peaking you can easily see where the focus needs to be adjusted if necessary. Now on the X-T1 the camera will ‘Focus Zoom’ where the viewfinder automatically zooms in on the focus area so you can really see the focus point when using a very wide aperture. The X-Pro1 doesn’t have this ‘Focus Zoom’ function and this has its plus and minus points. I will explain. When I use AF I sometimes point the AF point at the part of the image I want to the focus to be on, half press the shutter release to lock the focus and then recompose in the viewfinder. Now with the X-Pro1 this is still possible because you can see the whole image in the viewfinder. However on the X-T1 when the shutter is half pressed the Focus Zoom operates and you can’t see the whole picture, so my normal method of working is no longer permissible when using the AF+MF mode…….

Paris Engagement Photography Session | Sylvana & Jeremy |
Vincent Opoku

“Paris is always a good idea” and so is a Paris Engagement Photography Session. Engagement sessions are optional, do come at an extra cost but they are so worth it! Here is an insight into why I think they are worth the investment ; An engagement session gives us the opportunity to get to know a bit more about each other. We can go to a cafe, grab a meal and talk about everything (life, interests, wedding plans) and create some photographs along the way. Or we can plan a day out, to do an activity that you love and I will tag a camera along to document it. I try to get clients to understand that these sessions are not solely for taking photos but rather an opportunity to build relationships, to see each other as people and not just a business transaction. If we are going to celebrate one of the most important days of your lives together, let’s try and build something before that, let’s get comfortable with each other, let’s develop a level of trust between each other. It is also a good opportunity to gain an insight into how you and your partner interact with each other when there is a camera around. The photos we create are a bonus, they are yours to keep. As for me, it gives me the opportunity to try new things, take more risks and sharpen ideas that I can incorporate into my wedding portraiture skill set. Ultimately these sessions are never about the photos, they are about building connections and having fun…….

Fuji X-Series Images: How Big Will They Print? | Jeff Carter

I recently got involved in a conversation after a member of a Facebook group I belong to asked a question asking what was the largest size print he could obtain from the 16 megapixel X-Trans sensor.  This is a question I see quite a lot from photographers of all abilities.  I have been printed A2 images from 12mp sensor cameras since 2010 and still have several images the walls of my house taken on Nikon D90, D300S and Fujifilm X100. All of these cameras have a 12mp sensor and the images I have printed range from A3 (42cm x 29.7cm), A2 (59.4cm x 42cm) up to 70cm x 50cm, all with no loss of quality when compared with the original image. I also used a Nikon D800 and this camera boasts a massive 36mp sensor which certainly produces some impressive results but unless you print to billboard size you are not going to see any significant difference between the images produced by the D800 and the D300S, the main difference in quality is going to come from the lens quality used to record the image…….
