Coming from the DSLR camp I used APSC-sized and full frame sized sensor DSLRs for years. Some day I bought my first CSC with a fixed lens the Leica X1, because I want something compact, light-weighted, with an APSC-sized sensor for every day use and I don’t want to compromise in terms of image quality. However it was a short love: the not so good high ISO performance, the not so fast lens and the slow auto-focus were not good enough for my own style of photography. Hence I look for other options with an APSC-sized sensor. Here we go: I decided to buy the Fujifilm X100 and I sold the Leica X1. As soon as I got my X100 in my hands I took her to her first travel abroad: Hong Kong. She was my ‘backup camera’ for my Canon 5D. You know what kind of weather conditions you can expect in Hong Kong: hot and high humidity. I always had both cameras with me but mostly I like the convenience of the X100….

Today was a rainy, dark day. I took my Fuji X-Pro1 out in the rain, brought along an umbrella to protect the camera and myself a bit. Usually sundays in Copenhagen are rather sad and borring. Shops are closed, streets seems empty. Today though, lots of tourists in the streets, a viking market (Not sure, I think that is what was going on) And also a Ironman contest! – Did not expect that.. That gave me something to photograph, try out the focus speed trying to catch focus on the runners, wich went pretty damn bad (I don’t blame the camera, more the photographer… me) My camera was set to 16:9 raw+jpeg, but I ended up editing the raw files and cropping to 16:9. Just wanted to try this format, since I never have tried anything else than the standart. All shot with the Fuji 35mm f1.4…..

I’ll be honest, I’m not that much of a super wide guy. My preferred focal length is just a little wider than normal view. The 28mm to 35mm is pretty perfect for me. Back in May, I got two lenses from Zeiss to try out, the 35 1.8 and 12mm 2.8 Touit lenses. I walked with the 35 1.8 around NYC for a few weeks testing the lens before I passed it on to Gabe from Ruinism and wrote about it on my “Part 1” of the Zeiss Touit tests which can be found here in this earlier blog. I then began to shoot with the 12mm and actually had trouble making images I was excited about. It wasn’t that the gorgeous lens was anything less than a great optic, it was I who had issue with the lens. For those who follow my blog, its not just words, the images have to back up what I’m saying. The environments that I was testing the lens in were just not coexisting and the lens wasn’t working for me. Well, all that changed yesterday when I took the 12mm and mounted it on my trusty Fujifilm X-Pro1 with the aim of checking out some exhibitions at the Cortona On the Move Photo Festival in Italy. All of the images are shot using the 12mm 2.8 at ISO Auto 1600, color shots are Velvia Film Sim Mode unless I chose the B&W Y mode (I used film sim bracketing so I was able to capture it all)…..

Naja, ich gebe zu, der Titel verspricht mehr als es dann tatsächlich ist. Denn würde ich London mit der x-pro erkunden wollen, bräuchte ich vor allem ein paar mehr Tage vor Ort frei – ich hatte nur einen :(
Also korrigiere ich, nachdem ihr ja alle schon mal bis hierher gekommen seid, und gebe zu, dass ich lediglich ein paar Stunden in der Umgebung der Tower Bridge in London unterwegs war. Die Gegend um die Tube Station “London Bridge” ist eine gelungene Mischung aus moderner und traditioneller englischer Architektur. Da ich das letzte mal mit 12 Jahren bei der Tower Bridge war, war ich neugierig zu sehen, wie sich die Gegend verändert hat. Um ehrlich zu sein, das einzige, was mir bekannt vorkam, war die Tower Bridge (nicht sehr überraschend). Die Gegend scheint mir komplett verändert, aber nun gut, so gut kenne ich London jetzt auch nicht und als ich 12 Jahre alt war, schrieb man noch neunzehnhundert… und nicht 2013.

The family holiday this year saw us go to Beadnell in Northumberland, just down the coast from Bamburgh and the famous castle. This would be my first visit taking the X Pro1. All previous visits had ended with me trying to get shots of this iconic scene in the wind and the rain. I hoped that the weather would relent this time and I could try for the classic image, taken from the beach in great light …
I got my wish! My biggest problem was trying to do justice to the light, and keeping other photographers out of the shot!!

If you’re a street or travel photographer, you’ve likely already read every review out there (and there are about a million) so you already know how this camera operates in those circumstances. I’m not a street or travel photographer, I’m a portrait photographer that operates in controlled environments, but I’m also a father of two, which was the main driving force behind my decision to get this camera. In 2011 I picked up the Fuji x100, and it fell short. The focus was slooooooow, and seeing as I had purchased it to take photos of my daughter (my son had not yet entered the world at that time) and she was entering into that “I just learned how to walk and I am going to tear ass all over the place” phase, I missed 8 out of 10 photos that I wanted to take. Needless to say I sold it to someone who didn’t have children……

For a long time we have been planning to visit two of Montana’s ghost towns, Garnet and Elkhorn. While access to Elkhorn was fairly good, our day trip to Garnet was much more challenging. The main road was closed and we had to take a detour. It was a logging road – narrow, bumpy and poorly marked, hugging a mountain. We really needed an all-terrain vehicle. As a result, our sedan and our patience were put to the test. But all our grumbles evaporated when we arrived. Both towns met our criteria for a ghost town – a secluded old place with difficult access and few people around. As usual we were equipped with the Fuji X-Pro1 plus XF 14mm F2.8 lens and Fuji X100s (we also had the XF 35 & 60mm). The 21mm and 35mm (after conversion) focal length is my favourite way of seeing. Kasia and I really like the “get close and shoot wide” approach, especially while photographing structures and landscapes. Wouldn’t you know it – just when we wanted moody clouds and diffused light appropriate for a ghost town, the sun blazed down on both Garnet and Elkhorn. The bright sunshine forced us to look for strong patterns and shadows. We shot most of the photographs without a tripod, allowing full creativity. We crawled, climbed and flung ourselves prone, looking for different perspectives. And because we didn’t use a tripod, we could concentrate on composition and light without distraction. Even though you sometimes get slightly fuzzy photos this way, I don’t have a problem with that. I have found from experience that most of our best photographs were taken with camera in hand, letting the creative juices flow….

The Fuji X-E1 is the best ever camera I’ve ever owned!
It’s not like I’ve owned tons of cameras already, but I’ve been through the same journey as a lot of you did. I started with a big badass DSLR, a Canon 500D (which is small by the way as its an entry level DSLR). It was the camera that brought me to the world of photography and expenses. A few years with it, and I got settled with a 35/1.4 and 85/1.8 setup which was the best combo for my style of photography, but mostly it was the 35L that I got to use 90% of the time. After a while, I found it too cumbersome and heavy to be packing all the gear, when we went into trips or just went out with family or friends. I didn’t enjoy having to bring a big and heavy camera just to capture precious moments…..

Man folgt einer kleinen, rau asphaltierten Straße. Vorbei am verlassenen Sportplatz, wo sich noch immer die Hitze des Tages staut. Auf der Fahrt Richtung Süden findet das Auge automatisch den Weg zu der am Horizont verlaufenden Bergkette. Die Landschaft hier oberhalb des Ortes wirkt schon beinahe mediterran. Nur sind es statt Weinreben und Olivenbäumen, hier Maisfelder und Gemüseäcker, die das Landschaftsbild prägen. Aber die Sonne macht an diesem Tag keinen Unterschied. Bald wird sie hinter den Hügeln weiterziehen, uns zurücklassen mit einem Glimmen in den Augen und der Frage nach dem URSPRUNG…..
