Our ship was turned away from Cuba by the U.S. Government, so we spent a couple of days in The Bahamas. The zoo and gardens was over booked, so we walked the streets. This is how I knew I missed photographing birds. Even the pigeons started to look good.
Greetings, folks . . .
I have an issue cleaning an X-E2 sensor (well, the filter over the sensor, of course). There are some dust spots that nothing I've tried will remove. I've been through a 12-pack of sensor swabs and wet cleaning -- no joy. I hate to ship the camera to have it cleaned, in...
The Meike 25mm f1.8 arrived about an hour ago, and the first thing was to test it to see how well it did infrared photography. The answer is not perfectly but well enough to be entirely usable. The short version: it's just fine in infrared color up to f5.6, and in black-and-white up to f8 and...
The 18-135mm Fuji zoom is reputed to be an excellent lens for shooting infrared. Indeed, that's the reason I purchased one. Many Fuji lenses suffer from fairly bad to truly awful "hotspots" that render them unusable in infrared photography, which is too bad, because Fuji bodies are readily...
We've been very busy around home for the last few weeks. 'Just dawned on me that I hadn't posed some images I took with a then new Meike 35mm f1.7 Fuji mount lens. Another $79. exceptional lens - MeikeMK-35mm f/1.7 Lens for FUJIFILM X.
Very impressed so far. Very sharp, nice image rendering...
Fujifilm X-T3 Vertical Grip
Fujifilm has done something fantastic with their battery configuration in the XT3. They use a medium sized battery to keep the cameras compact, but those that need more power can get a vertical grip that allows you to use three batteries at one time.If you find the...
Lets go! Put your Velvia film simulation images here with any custom settings you may be using!
I just started experimenting with it a little bit this week.
Film Simulation = Velvia
Sharpness = +2
Shadows = 0
Highlights = -1
Grain = Weak
Noise Reduction = -2
Dynamic Range = DR200
Color = +2...
Like the others in this series, any images taken with the Fuji cameras film simulation set to ProNeg STD.
Please share any custom settings. I pulled this one, again from FujiXWeekly website.
I did tweak a little, as you cannot bake in a custom color shift to the white balance in a custom...
Picked this up yesterday....I think it will be a favorite in short time. Was able to hand hold the lens at night at 1/2 second!
Easily doable at 1/20th of a second. Some sample images below.

To be honest I'm not sure how I tripped on this lens. But after using it for a few days I'm very glad I did. This lens retails for $119. and not unlike 7a's 25mm f1.8, ($79.), it seems to offer some very serious image quality for an exceptional price. The build quality appears to be very...
Film Simulation = Provia/Standard (Agfa Optima 200 - Recipe found at FujiXWeekly)
Sharpness = 0
Shadows = +2
Highlights = -1
Grain = Weak
Noise Reduction = -3
Dynamic Range = DR100
Color = -2
White Balance = Auto, -1 Red, -1 Blue
Exposure Comp = +2/3 to +1
ISO = Auto up to 6400
Lens used =...
Following Andrew's Acros example, I thought I'd go ahead and start a CC thread. I took the image I posted in Andrew's Acros thread, and used the in-camera raw software to convert it to CC, bumping up the shadows to +2. Maybe not the best film simulation to try on a gloomy day. What do you think?
I didn't see this specifically, but thought it might be a good idea for us to share.
Since having the MONO dial on the Olympus PEN-F, I've been getting more and more into SOOC JPG processing. My usual workflow is to shoot RAW+F JPG with the "film simulation" of choice. The PEN-F gives you a...
