Fuji X-Pro1

Storyteller Series: The secret side of childhood | Patrick St-Hilaire

As a portrait photographer, I am always inspired by other photographers that have the ability to capture a portrait that is so compelling and thought provoking.  It is a rare gift to capture the essence of a person within a photograph, really touching the hearts of those that view the portrait. I would like to introduce to you, a photographer that does this very thing, his images are so beautiful and raw. Harsh in presence, yet emotional while inviting you into a very personal space. I have always loved his work, so it is my honour to share with you all, Patrick St-Hilaire…..

I’m glad to announce I’ve been invited to join forces with the amazing group of photographers who contribute to Origami Collective.

Fuji X-Pro1: Set-Up for Street Photography – Part I |
Marco Sobrevinas

From 1981 to 2009, I used a Leica M rangefinder system continuously.   As most practitioners of the art know, the Leica M, with its simple, optical view of the world, small size and ease of pre-setting controls, made it the supreme tool for street photography. In the winter of 2014, I finally got around to looking at the Fuji X system. I was especially attracted to the X-Pro1 body. Its optical finder and interchangeable lens capability really brought me back to my old Leica M system, which I had become comfortable with, for nearly 30 years of daily use. Over this past year since I’ve owned the Fuji X-Pro1, I’ve discovered a way to set up the camera to make it work for me. This is by no means the only the way to use the Fuji X-Pro1 for street work. But it’s what I’ve figured out from using the camera on the street, over dozens of hours. With this set-up, I’ve found the Fuji X-Pro1 becomes a quick-reacting, responsive and invisible partner for me, when I’m shooting on the street. Very similar, although not identical, in the way I shot with the Leica M rangefinder. In addition, I’ll also cover the equally important set-up choices beyond the camera and lens. Namely, the shoulder strap, camera bag or pouch, and the importance of great footwear…..

Tokyo Salaryman Fuji X-Pro1 | Nicolas Lambert

Le salaryman

Au Japon, ou plutôt à Tokyo on s’habille en costume noir pour aller travailler dans son entreprise. Ces hommes ont des horaires assez difficiles, debout très tôt et au lit très tard.

Série

Une série un peu contrastée ( au Japon il y a Moriyama donc ça peu passer ) sur mes rencontres de la journée.

Matériel

Toutes les photos ont été prises avec le Fuji X-Pro 1 comme objectifs j’ai utilisé le 35mm ainsi que le 18mm. Pour ce genre de traitement, un point and shoot ou un smartphone feraient l’affaire.

Traitement

Pas grand chose pour le traitement: simplement assez dur. J’ai amélioré mes images dans lightroom avant d’utiliser SilverEfex pour le passage au noir et blanc.

FujiFilm XF23mm 1.4 | Schoolboycouture

I’ve been using FujiFilm X-Series Camera’s ever since I got serious about original content on this site. To me they epitomise what a modern camera should be. A great sensor coupled with a stylish body that stands the test of time. I still use my original X100 alongside the X-Pro1 that I used in this post even after all these years. This is not an extensive review of the the XF23mm f1.4 lens. I am not going to be focussing on the technical details or pixel peeping. There are far too many sites that do that and I find that people are too obsessed spending hours looking at blown up images finding flaws when photography to me is about taking a camera and capturing the world! What I will be focussing on is the usability and shooting experience for someone who just wants to go out there and shoot images and has an X-series camera that has an interchangeable mount and may be considering this lens. The first thing that you notice about this lens is the build quality and the heft. At its current price point it commands a premium compared to the first batch of FujiFilm Lenses but you can see that you are getting a lot for your money. On the APSC sensor of the camera this equates to a standard 35mm field of view which happens to be my favourite. The lens has 11 elements in 8 groups including an aspherical one. 7 rounded diaphragm blades and stops down to f/16 in 3 stop increments…..

Fujifilm announces macro tubes, tethering software and
X-series firmware availability | DPreview

Fujifilm has announced two macro extension tubes for its X-series interchangeable lens cameras, the MCEX-11 and MCEX-16. Compatible with Fuji’s XF and XC lenses, they offer full AE function and are designed to ‘seamlessly blend into the original look and feel of the X-series’. The MCEX-11 and MCEX-16 will be available in mid-December for $99.95. Also making its debut is Fuji’s PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows v1.0. It provides two operation modes, Camera Mode and PC Mode for making exposure adjustments either on the camera or connected computer.

DiCaPac WP-S3 Underwater Housing For FujiFilm X-T1- XPro1 |
Vitalij Kazackov

…. following my previous post about underwater housing and photography I don’t want to repeat myself about things like: how to prepare your camera for the first time, few little tricks that might help, camera settings etc. Also, certain features that apply to DiCaPac WP-S3 and WP-S10 are shared, but I rather talk about actual feeling I got from using it with Fujifilm cameras systems. For my initial test I used Fuji X-Pro1 and X-T1. Both cameras performed well, but my personal selection falls towards Fuji X-T1…..

THE ‘IMAGE-FEEL’ OF X-TRANS | Pete Bridgwood

The journey to mastery of landscape photography in the deepest sense, is paved with spirituality. It is about finding resonance with nature’s theatre, visual discovery, self-expression; fundamentally, landscape photography is a metaphor for the human condition. I make no apology if this all sounds a little romantic, landscape photography deserves to be romanticised; when done well, it can capture emotion in it’s most primeval guise and preserve it for eternity. There’s an overwhelming preoccupation with gear in much of the photographic press, and for good reasons. If the commercial cogs keep turning and camera clientele consume, then design develops, technology thrives and we all continue to benefit: that’s how consumerism works. For many of us though, this perennial obsession with the latest cameras and accessories can become a little distracting, some may even say ‘irritating’. We would suggest, that it’s not the camera you use, but the photographs you make with it that count, or that the best camera is whichever one you have with you, or that photographer’s make photographs, not cameras, right? …..

Fujifilm X-Signature Cameras | Matthew Maddock

As an X-Photographer I was invited by Fujifilm UK to have my X-Pro1 re-skinned in their range of X-Signature colours.  As far as I’m aware this is a service only currently available in the UK. I was also keen to get my X100S re-skinned at the same time as a matching pair so cheekily asked if I could have my X100S done as well!  I went back and forth over the colours, the orange really appealed to me right away but I wasn’t really sure if I was ready for an orange camera!  I initially asked for both of them to be done in the red lizard, which I think works well with the black finish of both cameras, but the red wasn’t in stock and available when I went down to Fuji HQ to have them done.  However, now I’ve had them both done I’m so glad it wasn’t!  In the end as you can see, I opted for and orange X-Pro1 and a dark blue lizard X100S…….
