Fujifilm X-E1 - Helios 44M-7 - 58mm f2.0:
Dunno if you can see the texture in the resized version, but, it's quite nice in the full sized version.

I love this thread!

Rob_O, if you don't mind me asking, what type of ND filter do you use for those amazing landscape photos? I ended up getting a Hoya 3 stop ND filter and a Hoya Infrared filter for my 35mm lens but then I realized that Hoya makes variable 10 stop filters, I cried a little hehe.


For the DSLR (5D3) shots I used a Lee Big Stopper (10-stop ND) + Lee 0.9 soft grad ND.

I have the Hoya 9-stop variable ND for the Fuji lenses and it was on the 14mm all day, but only at 2-3 stops since I really just needed to dial down the harsh light a bit for better exposure control versus doing long exposures. I'd planned on doing a few LEs with the X-E1. Unfortunately, I only had a Gorillapod and it wasn't tall enough to be use full on this trip. I need to get a RRS mount for it so I can use it on my Gitzo with RRS ball head.

Thanks for the compliments all.

Rob, I really like your photos, thanks for posting, they are fantastic. What is your preferred method of triggering long exposures-- do you use a cable, set the timer function or something else? Also, do you have a favorite tripod for using you X-E1 when you are traveling? It looks like you used a sturdy Gitzo for the 5DIII but I have to imagine something more portable would be plenty for the X-E1?

The tripod looks like it might be a Gitzo GT1541T, one of the smallest and lightest Gitzos. I have the GT1542T, which is very similar, and it is a great little tripod. With a bit of care, and not too much wind, it can make perfectly sharp shots with my D800.

Sorry for the off topic question, but do you use it with the center post extended or do you take off the center post?

I leave my centre post in, but almost always at the bottom. I am not sure how I would use the tripod without the post. It isn't like a Systematic series.

Thanks. I use a Chinese knockoff of the Canon TC-80N3 remote to trigger the shutter; this one specifically. Works great. I shoot with the camera in Live View mode, which can see through the 10-stop filter when exposure is set correctly (believe it or not), and means the mirror is locked up.

The tripod I use most for travel is a Gitzo 1542T with RRS BH40 ball head. Great combo; lightweight and the Gitzo folds up damn near flat so easy to pack in 'carry on' bag when flying. I will use it for the X-E1 as well once I have a acra swiss plate for the Fuji.

I bought a Gorlliapod Zoom for the Fuji as well, but in a landscape environment it's too close to the ground. I tried hanging it off the side of the Gitzo. Didn't work well.

ETA

Here's a shot I took some time back comparing the GT1542 with RRS BH40 in "travel mode" against the Manfrotto 190MF in its most compact state. The 190 is a fairly small tripod, and being magfiber fairly light. The Gitzo kills it in every way (at 4x the price though)

Mine's a GT1542T as well. EXCELLENT tripod. I have it with me 99% of the time when travelling, and even carried it strapped to a Lowpro sling while skiing for a week recently. I also have a Manfrotto 055XPROB with RRS BH50 ball head for heavier duty use, but it's a beast to drag along on hikes or air travel so it rarely leaves the house.

FWIW, the wind was blowing pretty good when I took those coastal shots. I hook my bag to the center post for stability and it's rock solid.

Ah yes, so it is. I don't know why I thought it was a 1541. Anyway, I love mine, I have almost stopped using my GT3542XLS since buying this, just because it is so light and small, yet still good enough for sharp shots with my D800, as long as I take care.

Congratulations on your upcoming X100s. Although I really like how your Leica 35/2 + Metabones renders images.
This was taken Last Friday.

I didn't like Velvia on the X100, but I like it on the X-E1 with lifted shadows (-2).

I'll be ordering my X100s soon and possibly selling the X-Pro 1 for the final switch to the D800e (flame suit on!) haha.

Here's two shots from the other night driving and some shots of prints I recently got in all shot with the X and the 35 1.4. Complete PITA to manual focus on stars btw. Also I don't have the fastest SD card but it took like 10 seconds to buffer a long exposure shot. It was brutal!

Sooo, FF *does* make a huge difference from a crop body.
Especially with this lens, on my FF bodies, I want to say EVERYTHING blooms/glows/halos at f1.2
I have deliberately not used either of my FF bodies, using just the FujiFilm X-E1.
I like it.
FINALLY, got a "dreamy" style rendering from the below combination.
FujiFilm X-E1 and Minolta MC Rokkor-X 58/1.2, 12mm Kenko tube :
