Fuji X-Pro1

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……..

Spin Out With the Fuji 18mm | Dave Young

Being half term for schools in England, and as per usual raining it’s difficult to know what to do with the kids to keep them occupied. As it happens the British Motor Museum at Gaydon, Warwickshire is not too far from us so we decided on a quick trip down there to see what it had in store having had a bit of a make over recently. Being home to the largest collection of British motor vehicles it’s home to a lot of different vehicles so is a great opportunity to explore the the good, the bad and the ugly of the UK motor industry. I wanted to travel light for the day, so just took my Fuji X-Pro1 and 18mm lens on a neck strap which was perfect for slinging over a shoulder and using as and when needed. No need for a bag or rucksack, just a lightweight system for an easy day out……..

Editing Fujifilm RAW files with Iridient Developer for more WOW | Axel Friberg

It’s been a while since I wrote you last. As of today, I still shoot with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and edit my pictures in Lightroom CC. I might upgrade to the X-T2 when it comes, this summer. The Fuji RAW files are still not fully supported by Adobe, which is a drawback. As I’m sure you are aware, some details like foliage for example, will looked smeared. Inspired by the amazing photographer Olaf Sztaba, I decided to download the trail version of the photo editor Iridient Developer and gave the Fuji RAW files a run for its money. Let me tell you, the difference is real. Like going from 480p to 1080p on Youtube. I used Olaf’s settings in Iridient Developer, choosing the unique sharpening method ‘R-L deconvolusion’ and setting the radius slider to 0.5 and the Iterations slider to 30…….

My Love Affair with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 | Adam Bonn

Boy meets camera, lives happily ever, right? WRONG! But how wrong? And can two wrongs make a right? I’m a funny bugger when it comes to camera gear… Don’t get me wrong, I can suffer from GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), my obsessive collection of Transformer toys as a kid, various motorcycles that I’ve pimped up, and a one-time large collection of wrist watches that basically all looked the same… Yup, if you say to me, “Adam, I know I don’t need it, but I simply HAVE to have it” then I’ll unflinchingly look you back in the eye, fix you with an understanding look and say, I know, I know… let’s figure out a plan to get you what you don’t need… What have you got that can be flipped on eBay, how much room is left on your credit card, do you have 2 functioning kidneys?……

My 2015 | V. Opoku

I know most people usually put their end of year review together in December or early January, but I to like to sit on things for a little while longer. I prefer to be 3 or 4 weeks into the new year before I take a moment to reflect on the previous on. So how was my 2015? It was filled with highs & lows and a new beginning. The year started of on a high, things fizzled out a little in the middle and then ended on a high. The Start: I became an Official Fujifilm X-Photographer, was selected as a member of X100C and got featured on ShotKit. I had an epic 4  days in Paris where I photographed my favorite engagement session to date – Monique + Paul, then Sylvana + Jeremy’s beautiful wedding as well as a spontaneous & unconventional maternity session with Isabelle + Florent. I had weddings published in Asiana Magazine and on a few other online wedding blogs. The likes of Thomas Menk, Patrick and Heather & Mathieu continued to curate my work and shared with their audience, I earned new contacts…….

X-Gene: A Love and Hate Story | Fujifilm X-PRO1 & X-T1 | Insignia Chiaki

I am happily married to my Nikon gear. But there’s always room for lovers. Right?  So before I tried out the Sony stuff, I’ve also found myself buying a X-Pro1 from Fuji. For about 4 months I used the Fuji for everyday snaps and of course occasional usage in portrait sessions; however, I have to say my experiences were… Let’s just say I was puzzled, and I’ll elaborate on that later. I ended up selling the X-Pro1 in mid-2015. When I eventually sold the A7 II, I decided to give Fujifilm another chance. This time with their flagship X-T1. Two months into my purchase, all I have to say is: WOW……..

Fujifilm X-Pro1 – still a force to be reckoned with! | KSG Photography

Unless you’ve been locked away in a CIA prisoner ship in the South Pacific, you’ll be aware that Fujifilm have now launched their long-awaited X-Pro2! However, the question still arises – does that mean the legendary X-Pro1 is down & out? In my, humble, opinion certainly not. Yes, the X-Pro2 has some great new features but that doesn’t take away the fact that the X-Pro1 is still a supremely capable camera in the hands of those who know how to use it. No, it’s never going to be a speed freak, but that’s not the be-all & end-all. The X-Trans sensor still delivers great results, even at higher ISOs and those awesome Fujifilm lenses mean the images are tack-sharp. I am fortunate enough to own all of the pro-spec cameras in Fujis line-up (X-T1, X-Pro1 along with the X100T and an X-E1 as backup) and a helluva lot of their lenses but on a recent job I decided that I would shoot with the original interchangeable X-series body and a couple of the original lenses……..

X-Pro1 goes dancing | Ashok Viswanathan

Amazing photo shoot with the very beautiful and talented dancer „Renelle Snelleksz“ using the X Pro1 and the 18-55 f2.8 fuji lens. This is my first attempt to capture dance in a studio environment. Most comments from users say that the X Pro1 is not fast focussing or is unsuitable for sports. It is true its not as fast as the new generation nikon or canon but for most purposes its fast enough. Renelle was moving fairly fast with the ribbons making patterns in the air. the X Pro 1 was set to 1/125 to sync the studio flash and f 11 for most captures. lighting was with two soft boxes in front set to half power and a spot from the rear to provide the rim light and highlight the ribbons. Focussing was set to „C“. In the majority of the Raw files the pictures are sharp but out of a total of about 650 captures about 10% was out of focus. Even with flash the ribbons show movement which adds to the image. I am sure that with the new X Pro2 the success rate will be much higher. This shoot calls for anticipation as I need to release the shutter just before the ribbons reach the peak. otherwise its too late and the moment is gone for ever. Not easy as you dont know where the ribbon is going to be. overall very pleased with the result……

TechCrunch Disrupt London 2015 | Dan Taylor

This gig was a bit of a departure from my normal duties, as TC wanted me on atmosphere, backstage, and the step-and-repeat wall. A nice change from being on stage duty where, to be honest, after a few hours the angles start looking all the same. Likewise, a departure in the sense that I decided to leave my regular DSLR Nikon’s in the bag and cover the event strictly with my Fuji X-T1 and Fuji X-Pro1. I paired the X-Pro1 with the18-55mm f/2.8-4, which gave me a ton of flexibility, and alternated between the 35mm f/2 and 56mm f/1.2 for the more intimate shots. TechCrunch’s East Coast Editor, John Biggs, now has a great new profile photo thanks to the Fuji X-T1 and 56mm combo. Using this combination, I was able to leave the rolling suitcase at home and traveled across town with nothing more than my laptop bag stuffed full of Fuji’s. I’d estimate a 75 percent weight reduction in the normal kit I carry…….

8 New Year’s resolutions to improve your photography | Marco Larousse

It’s that time of the year when photographers should look back on the year that was and look forward on the year that can be.  Here are a few practical and inspirational tips to grow photographically.

1. Spend more time working with the gear that you have rather than thinking about the gear that you want to have next.
Seriously, today’s cameras and lenses are so powerful and capable that they will most likely be able to do the job 99% of the time. And the more you concentrate on what you have, the better you’ll get at finding ways to make it work. I still regularly shoot with up to 65 years old manual film cameras and get great results……..
