Fuji X-Pro1

A walk around my hometown with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Tom Radford

I recently treated myself to a Fujifilm X-Pro1 to accompany my X100. Fuji had a pretty incredible deal on, where they gave you two lenses for free, when you purchased an X-Pro1, and on top of that gave you an extra £100 discount if you traded in certain DSLR’s. I had an old Nikon D5100 knocking around that I didn’t really use, so I went to my local fuji dealer and they offered me £150 trade value for the D5100.  Not bad, basically £250 for a body worth half that.. That made my mind up, so I dutifully handed over the remaining £400 or so and walked out with an X-Pro1 and the XF 18mm f/2 and the XF 27mm f/2.8. Having had the 18mm before on my old Fuji X-E2, I knew that was a keeper, but I was less convinced of the 27mm. I previously had the 35mm f/1.4 which was great and fully intend to sell the 27mm to purchase the 35mm, but before I did, I wanted to test it out, just to see. I went for a wander around my hometown with the X-Pro1 and the 27mm to see what it could do……..

MY 2014 Review | V. Opoku

As a whole, 2014 was an interesting year on a personal and professional level, it was an adventure – challenging and fun. I believe I found consistency within my body of work and I aim to build on from there. I also experimented a little bit and even wrote a few reviews along the way. This post is dedicated to everyone one that was part of my 2014 in one way or another. The clients that trusted me and those that still keep in touch. Ashley + Garret, Rakhee + Jack, Sylvana + Jeremy etc etc. All you guys are awesome! The strangers I met on my travels, Jamaica, Morocco, Spain, France etc were good to me. The fellow professionals I got to know during the course of the year. Special mention to the MirrorLessons, Thomas Menk & Patrick at Fujirumors for their constant source of inspirational content and support of my work. Marc at Fujifilm UK for the guest post on their blog and plugging my work out there too. Johnny and Rebecca Lily for allowing me to test and review Rebecca Lily Pro Set 3 Lightroom Presets and everyone that I met at the first LDNWLK……….

Faces of India | Jeremy Lagay

In June 2014 my boss called me : “I’ve registered you to a training, in India, it’s OK for you ?”… Hum, I’d never been to India ! I had heard many things about this country. This kind of general information that makes already in your mind a sort of global picture, “the legend one”. So I would easily say that I had a kind of clear idea about how it would be. I would not surprised anyone of you if I even say a preconceived idea. “Don’t worry, no problem boss, I would love to go to India for this training. Where is it”. “It’s in Bangalore, in September”…Let’s be honest, I had this mix of excitement & stress. A lot to do before to leave, but at least one thing was always in my mind : prepare yourself to take photos of people. I’ve found couple of information on the net to organize my trip & I made everything to get a bit of free time there. Everybody was saying that Indians are very kind to photographs, like a small paradise in this regards. The rest, I would discover it there, surprise… So I left in September, as planned……

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…….
