I think I am in Love ! | Matthew Hart

I am lost for words and that does not happen very often, this new Fujinon XF16MM F/1.4 WR is just stunning ! One of my biggest reasons changing over from Nikon to Fuji was the Glass and size of the system of course, but the glass and future glass was the draw so I took a leap of faith away from Nikon’s amazing pro glass and it looks like I landed on a bead of four leaf clovers ! Fuji are just making one amazing lens after the other.  I have only had limited time to try out this new lens as I have been so busy but here are a few images from last weekend. I will aim to get some more images in Brighton this weekend if I can sneak some time in for myself. Its full frame equivalent of 24mm is just stunning for Street…….

Leica M Edition 60 – The Street Photography Review . . . |
Street Photography Blog

. . . During the previous installment of this review, I got to know the M Edition 60 a little better and gained a clearer understanding of what it can offer photography today. Now in this, the final chapter, I took the Leica M Edition 60 out and onto the streets of Chester and Manchester, where I could properly put the camera through its paces.  . . The brief was simple. Evaluate whether a digital camera can function as an everyday ‘shooter’, without a screen – just myself and the Leica M60 enjoying a relaxing stroll through the sights, sounds, smells and inhabitants of two popular, sprawling and rugged cities in the North West of England.

Streets of Nice | Gabor Nagy #Fuji X-T1

It’s been a month now that we have spent a couple of days in Nice where we had great time. We did long walks in the city, visited few of its historical places and we had some amazing food. Oh, and the real french baguette, I know it’s „just“ bread, but I absolutely loved it. Every night on our way back to the hotel we bought few pastries and a baguette, even if we had dinner. By the third night my daughter Hanna said – „Daddy not a baguette again!“ – when she saw what I got from the bakery. What can I say, I didn’t loose weight for sure, despite the kilometres of walk every day. Overall we had a wonderful time and I also managed to capture some street scenes in and around Nice and Monaco. All images were taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 and the X-T1. Enjoy …..

A week in Berlin with the Fuji X100T | Frank Koehntopp

With our teenage daughters becoming increasingly more interested in german history we decided to spend this years easter vacation in Berlin. Germanys capital has a wide range of places worth visiting covering the last 200 years of german and european history. In an effort to fight GAS (gear acquisition syndrome) and carry a lighter camera bag I decided to limit my photography equipment to the Fujifilm X100T and the two converter lenses WCL-X100 and TCL-X100, thus covering 19mm, 23mm and 35mm APS-C focal lengths. We had a nice apartment just outside Berlin city limits, it took less than 30 minutes to get to the city centre by public transport. We planned our days with light activities in order not to overload the kids – we still managed to exceed our daily Fitbit goals by far ;) …..

How I Use Black Tape on My Fujifilm X100 for Street Photography |
Olafs Osh

You can solve everything with black tape. If not, you just don’t have enough tape. In this post, I’ll show you how I prepare my Fujifilm X100 camera for street shooting. It will cover my specific style of shooting, so some things might not work for you. Here’s how I shoot: I shoot fully manual except for Auto ISO, which I set on 1600 or 3200. For the most part I use zone focusing and tend to keep the camera in my palm and inside my jacket’s pocket (that will be obvious below). Lets start with the bottom. Piece of tape covers the speaker. It does prevent moisture and dust from entering a camera, especially that, if you put it down, you’ll probably do it bottom facing down. No need to worry about dusty table or spilled/beer/milk. And since I have muted all the sounds and don’t do any video recording, speakers are useless………

The Truth About The Best Lens For Street Photography | John Barbiaux

How many times have you read or heard that the best focal length for Street Photography is 35mm?  How about 50mm?  Wider?  Longer?  The point is, everyone is an expert on the subject and every time you read it it’s a definitive “this is the best and no other will do” statement.  Well guess what?  They are wrong. There have been many photographers who would have laughed in your face had you told them the only good Street Photography could come from a 35mm lens.  Henri Cartier-Bresson was said to have shot so often with a 50mm lens that he could “previsualize” his photographs because he was so familiar with the size of the frame.  Was he doing it wrong?  The last time I read about Street Photography I was told that a 50mm is basically a telephoto lens and it wasn’t wide enough for good Street Photography! The image at the top of the page was taken by famous Street Photographer André Kertész, known to me more recently from his book Andre Kertesz: Paris, Autumn 1963.  Perhaps not as famous as Henri Cartier-Bresson but accomplished enough to have made it into several museums, newspapers, magazines, etc. well beyond his death in 1985.  I want to share with you an excerpt from the book I mentioned above……

Paris, two primes and the Fuji X-T1 | Nick Lasure

Imagine walking the streets of Paris, or any other city for that matter, with a light weight & compact camera system that is both subtle in looks and impressive in performance. Imagine being able to smartly & quickly change settings, blend in to the crowd and get the results you want. What does this camera look like? I’ll cut right to the chase and state it’s the Fuji X-T1. Having recently switched from shooting Nikon DSLRs to Fuji mirrorless I was admittedly somewhat apprehensive taking a photo intensive trip without my trusty DSLR. I’d grown quite accustomed to shooting Nikon for nearly 10 years and wasn’t quite comfortable yet with the X-T1 before hopping on our flight to Paris. This trip would be an excellent opportunity to both further my familiarity with the X-T1 and determine if it really is a replacement of the tried & true DSLR. I brought along two prime lenses, the Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 and the Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 for going wide. The simplicity and sharpness of shooting with only prime lenses would prove to be a great test of the camera’s abilities. There are several good reviews out there for the Fuji X-T1 so I won’t spend time rehashing what you may have read already, listing boring specs or worry about pixel peeping. Instead I’ll focus on what my main concerns are for real life shooting, favorite features and whether or not the X-T1 qualifies as ‚professional‘ in my book. And perhaps more importantly, is it really the DSLR killer? …….

Street Photography with the X series | Gary Perlmutter

This article is a guide to help you choose the best Fuji X series model for street photography. Let’s start at the beginning with a bit of background. I am a professional wedding photographer whose work brings in the money that feeds my family, but it’s my passion for street photography that feeds my soul. (However I do now supplement my income by teaching street photography workshops). I have been practicing street photography since before I even realized that the pictures I were taking had a name! In that time, I have always sought to find the perfect street camera, and subsequently owned and tried every conceivable brand that includes Canon, Nikon through to the infamous Leica.To give you some further detail, these cameras included the Nikon V1 (truly underrated camera, only the small 1” sensor let it down), Leica M6 and M8 (great street cameras if like zone focusing, but for me rangefinder focusing was too slow). Leica X2 (great quality, but its AF speed was too slow and the external EVF should have been built in!). Before that, I used one of the original Canon G series compacts: this was ok but its optical viewfinder was no better than looking through a keyhole and on the latest version they have removed it altogether!

Two Steps to Make the X100s the Best Street Camera | James Conley

We previously discussed the benefits of shooting achromatic, and we’ve also discussed how to make the Fuji X100s into a high-ISO achromatic machine. This is a great first step into embracing the world of documentary street photography and getting your mind in synch with moments and gestalt. But we can do even better! {Better still, most of these tips can be used on many of the Fuji X-Series camera bodies. Street photography is about capturing moments, and moments for a photographer are about not only about being able to work fast, but also being unobtrusive. The Leica is still the gold standard for fast and unobtrusive work. After you’ve made your Fuji X100s into a Fuji Monochrom, there are two more steps to take to make the camera as Leica-like as possible. The first one is quick and easy. The last one takes some getting used to, and is optional…….
