I treated myself to an early 50th birthday present last week …. a Fuji X-Pro 1 along with the xf 18mm f2 and 35mm f1.4.
This post is short and sweet and is just to show my 1st quick attempt at some close street shooting using the 18mm wide open at f2 just as a test.The lens is very sharp even at f2, obviously not the best aperture to be sure of getting the image but as it was an experiment I wasn’t to upset at the missed shots.
I had a few surprised looks as I took the images but I didn’t feel as conspicuous like I do that close with my Dslr.I am shooting Raw and Jpeg at the moment and I must say the Jpegs are really nice, great colour and sharpness and seem to have the added bonus of a little lens correction in camera over the Raw (not drastic but noticeable) which makes a difference with the 18mm.
I will post a lot more in the next blog, I have just tried the 35mm at f1.4 and its gorgeous 🙂
Thanks for looking …….
One thought on “Fuji X-Pro 1 on the street …….”
Great shots, Tim!!!! I’ve made myself a 50th birthday present too and it has been a X-Pro1 with the 35mm. At the moment, I’m still testing the machine (and myself) but the conversion of the camera is better than any of the conversions by software that I’ve tried (Lightroom, SilkyPix, Capture One, dcraw). Great camera!!!!
