Thanks Helen!

This was the picture that convinced me to keep the X-E1.

A crazy good lens. I had been waiting for focus peaking on my X-E1 and dashed out to do some shooting with my Leica Elmar Asph 28/2.8 and CV40/1.4. Looked great.

Then headed out with the Fuji 35/1.4 with new firmware - and was bowled over by the results. The AF is fast enough that I didn't notice it, and the focus accuracy is superb.

While very careful work with my Leica and CV lenses might be comparable, I am not sure that they will be 'better.' Which means that shooting legacy lenses will mostly be about finding lenses with 'character' going forward...

Cheers,
Kirk

I've come to exactly the same conclusions... Fuji lenses or lenses with 'character'.

This is a teaser from Sunday.


Family Fun - Muttart by Camtography, on Flickr

Did a family shoot, taken with the 35mm wide open. And with the new firmware update I had no issues locking onto my subjects. It actually worked well shooting kids!

I took this from inside the Cotswold Cottage (built c.1620) that was purchased by Henry Ford in 1929, and moved stone by stone and rebuilt at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan.

I was fortunate enough to do my second wedding with my Fuji X-Pro1 and X-E1 as lead photographer.

I would not recommend this to anyone shooting an event unless they are very familiar with using the Fuji camera and, have assistants, and if it's the only camera system you have at your disposal haha. The Fuji X-Pro 1 was my go to camera for 80% of the photos taken with the 35mm 18-55mm and the Helios 58mm lens at my disposal and a YN560III speedlite.

Thanks to the new firmware update, auto focusing was fairly simple. I think I might have missed focus a few times but that was due to me focusing close to the bride's white dress instead of her face. Aside from that, no major issues.

On three occasions, after I take a photo while using the EVF, my XPRO1, the camera would freeze on the last image taken and the only way I can continue shooting is to pull out the battery then put it back in. It was not a huge issue but I think it might have been because it was also a very hot summer day (Canadian wise). I did have metering issues as well, for some reason after the update it feels like my metering gauge just won't respond unless i'm in fully manual mode. This is also due to me not knowing the camera too well. It resulted in a few under/over exposed images that I eventually used P mode outdoors.

Lastly I did shoot the entire wedding in Raw+Normal (Jpeg) mode on the new Sandisk 80MB/s cards. No issues from going photo to photo.

This one was because I took the image from my FB, then uploaded it to instagram then put it on flickr so it's cropped into a funny box :P

Having sold off my 'Canon' gear, same as before with Nikon, got the X-Pro1 with a 35. It compliments my M6 greatly. Though I find I'm using the Fuji a lot more.

A couple of empty red chairs--one about disability and homelessness, the other a bit too close to somebody's testosterone level... XE1





Luckily, at that moment a friend much more imposing than the angry guy came over to sit with me. "In case this escalates," he said, "I'll be your bodyguard."

His girlfriend, or mom, looks scarier.

I took this one shortly after getting my X-Pro 1, and while I was revisiting the image recently I realized how similar the concept was to a painting by Caspar Friedrich titled "Monk by the Sea" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Monk_by_the_Sea). Then I started think about how many of my images are like this one when it comes to moody or contemplative landscapes that include a single person in them.

I figured I'd share it with you guys and see what you thought. As usual, feedback / critiques are always welcome.

A few favorites from a recent round of assignments:



The X Pro has worked extremely well with a strobist setup:



And who said you can't shoot action with the X Pro? It's called prefocusing. I really, really don't miss the shutter blackout on my SLRs.

Staying in for few days with a nasty cold, and my cat kept me warm so I'm thanking her with a paw massage.

Shot with X-E2, developed in LR5.

Good lens indeed, and I got mine for $399 during the ongoing sale. (Typical sale price is $450, but I got lucky.) I'll be taking this lens to my next work shoot for sure.
