Fuji X-Pro1

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…….

A Scottish road trip | The big picture gallery

Having had a really busy couple of months in the gallery, I decided to have a few days off over Christmas and have a photographic trip up the north west side of Scotland. So plans made and accomodation booked, my partner Trudy and I eventually made it out of our village, and a snow covered Derbyshire and headed up the M6. I had been constantly checking webcams and weather reports for Glencoe, Skye and Wester Ross. The weather looked awful, I was banking on a clear spell for a few days whilst we were up there. The weather gods did not let us down, we had some fantastic light to shoot in. The one downside to our journey was that I forgot my tripod, and was cursing my rush to get away. So no slow shutter work for me. So the gear in my shootsac was Fuji Xt1, X pro 1, 14mm 35mm 18-55mm and the trusty 55-200mm and of course a plethora of batteries and chargers. I also took along my often used Epson p300 for backing up my images on…….

What It’s Like To Work For Fujifilm | Leigh Diprose

My name is Leigh Diprose and I’m a professional photographer with a passion to tell the world about photography. I thought I would write an article to share what it’s like to work for an imaging company, in my case Fujifilm Australia. I’ve been around cameras ever since the late 90s and more so when I started my first job in Sydney in the year 2000. Since then I’ve worked in photo labs and managed various retail photographic stores. The experience has proved worthwhile as I’ve learned a lot about cameras and imaging.  Having had the years of experience with darkrooms, film and digital I found myself exposed to a wide range of products and experiences. Part of my current role is to write informative photography articles while working alongside the product team. I spend a small part of my week interacting with many of you to help learn how X-Series cameras could be better. I also spend time conducting research through social media on what you like and don’t like about Fujifilm’s cameras. This all in turn helps me write a better article on the Fujifilm Australia Blog as well as contributing to make the products better……

Fuji X Adventures in North America – A Town Called Bradford |
Peter Dareth Evans

The fall season. The clouds race in from the West, shading this small town nestled in the Allegheny hills of Pennsylvania. I’m here on holiday for four weeks and I’m pacing the streets looking for things to shoot; houses with character, broken kerb-stones, fallen leaves, vivid signs and… people. All it takes are a comfortable pair of shoes – keep walking and sooner or later you get lucky. I’m walking the suburbs straddling West Washington Street. I hear a guitar strumming, a voice mumbling Elvis songs in a club singer’s drawl. I ask for a picture and he sings to me, eyes shining with delight as the music in his headphones plays a soundtrack to his life. A smile and a thank you and he walks away. Strumming and singing he turns a corner and is out of sight. And over the next week I hear him now and again, here and there – in the distance, threading the same grid of streets. What’s his story? It’s small town America and I guess most folks in town know his ways. Only the out of town stranger remains in the dark. So you gather a picture book with your camera and try to guess the stories, or failing that make up your own. And sometimes between shots when face to face you chat a little and try to dig up some of that small town lore. But it’s the outsider they really want to talk about. What’s the deal with the accent? Where are you from? What are you doing in Bradford? Why not New York or Chicago or New Orleans? ……..

Bhutan: Tranquility in the Land of the Thunder Dragon | Ross Kennedy

As globalisation takes hold and starts to squeeze all the diversity out of even the farthest-flung cultures, it is quite a surprise to find a tiny country holding the modern world at bay. Bhutan’s unique topography and location in a forgotten corner of the Himalaya have left it free to pick and choose which parts of 21st century life to let past the border gate. Any development is done under strict regulations which famously prioritise “Gross National Happiness” and protection of the environment over Gross National Profit.  Rather than rushing headlong into economic progress, the country has taken a long hard look at the mistakes of its neighbours and decided to do things a little differently. Until the 1960’s, the country remained closed-off from the outside world, operating without currency, health services or roads. Only the Chinese invasion of neighbouring Tibet pushed the government into opening up its border with India and the start of a cautious modernisation. TV and the internet were “allowed” in 1999. Each important town is dominated by an enormous white Dzong – imposing fortress-monasteries which were constructed in the 16th century to protect the country from Tibetan invasion. Each dzong is a strange fusion of church and state, containing both the local government administration and a monastery. Monks flit silently across the courtyards like scarlet wraiths while well-fed minor bureaucrats huff and puff up rickety staircases……..
