    Fuji X-Pro1 and OVF and ND filters - just a heads up

    Put a 3 stop on this weekend so I could shoot wide open with the 35mm in the bright SoCal sun. The HUD in the OVF ramps up and down on it's own. However it was so dim I could not make out exposure comp. Then I realized it was setting the HUD brightness based on the sensor with a 3 stop...

    Fuji DPR has X-Pro1 comparison shots with BETA camera raw converter

    The corner of the Queen of Hearts in RAW looks soft to me compared to the others. But is is BETA so they probably need to work some things out.

    Fuji X-Pro1: Shallow DOF and it's affect on AF - a simple DIY test and question

    I want a mulligan on my question. Keep in mind I am coming from m43 so having a DOF so shallow that focusing was difficult was not an issue. I'm thinking that shooting a f/1.4 at distance is not the issue, shorter distances is what makes it more difficult. Do you ever think that you are so...

    Fuji X-Pro1: Shallow DOF and it's affect on AF - a simple DIY test and question

    Find a target not too far away so you can easily see it's in focus. I used a heavy towel about 6' away. Switch to Continuous AF. Set Aperture to wide open. Listen to the lens, it's adjusting focus non-stop to compensate for your slight hand held movements. Now set Aperture to f/16...

    Fuji LCD / EVF / OVF HUD brightness adjustment

    Saw a scoop.it post that said the brightness of the EVF and OVF can be set independently using QMenu / "LCD brightness". What I am seeing is LCD Brightness can be set independently for the EVF and LCD. If you have your eye to the viewfinder, "LCD brightness" adjusts the EVF. However it does...

    Yep, that's MoVal.

    Fuji X-Pro1, twilight, 6400 iso

    These were Provia/standard which is lower contrast than say Velvia. Velvia would be a good choice for straight OOC, no PP. Provia/standard being lower contrast gives more wiggle room with DR. Probably a better choice for RAW / PP, which is what I am used to. Thx 4 looking.

    Fuji Size comparison: X-Pro1 vs OM-D vs GH2

    Very true, slap the 20mm on a recent PEN, small and light.

    Fuji Size comparison: X-Pro1 vs OM-D vs GH2

    I'm not one for carrying toasters and telescopes around which is what drew me to M43 in the first place, it's small size. When considering the X-Pro1 I had to determine how much of a size/weight penalty I was willing to take over my GH2. Turns out, there really isn't any. Size/weight in...

    Fuji So I played with an X-Pro1

    The 12mm(24mm) is a really nice lens, wide but not so wide you get the funky distortions (unless you like that). Plus it has that back to the future focus ring that slides back to show you DOF for zone focusing.

    Fuji Finally got to shoot with the X-Pro1 and 35mm

    Yes, very. What I am seeing IQ wise vs my GH2 is no more purple fringing, better gradients, more of that 3D pop and isolation and less noise even at low ISO. It always bugged me that I would see noise in a clear sky on the GH2 even at ISO 160. I can't see any on the X-Pro1 at ISO 200. I even...

    Fuji Trying to understand contrast detection AF on X-Pro1

    Just did a test, X-Pro1 and GH2, to see how they behaved. XF35mm, f/2.8 Panny 20mm, f/1.7 Focus area is as large as the X-Pro goes, EVF. Made the GH2 focus area the same size. Lens are about 18" from the wood, 7' from the gravel. I slowly moved the focus area from the wood to the gravel and...

    Fuji Trying to understand contrast detection AF on X-Pro1

    Thx Yeah, AF area was completely inside the body, single point, small, EVF. Let's try this so I can wrap my brain around it. Let's say the AF area is completely accurate. 90% of what's inside the AF area has little contrast. 10% has lots of contrast. A typical CDAF is going to lock on the...

    Fuji Trying to understand contrast detection AF on X-Pro1

    Greetings: I am coming from a GH2 which is fast and furious with it's AF. I have caught a single bee in flight with it and the Oly 45mm wide open, no problem. I understand the X-Pro1 has a shallower DOF so it's a more difficult challenge, both for it and me. But I also see times...
