I'm very sorry for the recent amount of posting, but I'm having a hard time getting my head around how amazing the OOC jpegs are! A slight crop, shadow lifting, and resizing for web was all it took to make me happy with these. Shot with an X-E1 and the 18-55 kit lens

This would be a pretty boring site without pictures. Don't apologize. There is plenty of commentary on technical issues but we learn a lot by observation After all it is a visual medium. I for one, wish people would post more larger images and explain their technique. I post on the NEX thread but learn a lot on this thread. Thanks for the pics!

Yeah nice pics and don't feel bad for posting - I mean, this *is* the Fuji photo thread

One from yesterday I think, my 5-yr-old was playing outside and starts yelling at everyone else outside "Look look look guys!"

I walk over and see these 6 jets just emerging from the clouds for a flyby over our home (too high up to tell what they were though).

Point taken. As for the process, these were shot RAW + Jpeg (Fine) with the velvia film simulation on. I loved the saturation in the jpegs straight from the camera so I used them over the raw. I sharpened a small amount for web viewing, resized the photos and lifted the shadows by roughly half a stop. Honestly this camera is a snap in well lit conditions with the jpegs being better OOC than my D600, though the nikon's raw files are still much more flexible

I really love the output from that Nikkor 55mm f/3.5.

Any shots of the camera with the lens mounted?

I had a Pentax K to Fuji adapter already, and just picked up a 50mm f/1.7. I happen to already have this lens but I can't get it back from my sister! My fault for getting them into film photography. A reasonably fast 75ish mm lens will be a nice compliment to my 18/35 duo, plus the Pentax 50 is tiny so when it's on the adapter it's barely larger than the 35.

Was walking about this morning, took my X-P-1, thought I'd get some images to use for creating B&W import presets.
I almost always shot B&W with my M4 and am thinking that's what I want with the XP-1 as well.
Used an HP+ preset on this then some work with the sliders to get the look I wanted. I'm happily surprised at how well I could pull the black up for detail after having to dial in -1EC on the camera to keep the slate roof tiles from blowing out in the sun.

To shoot something similar on an architectural assignment I'd be using a bracket.

Just starting to get a feel for the camera. Loving it. Especially at the price compared to a digital Leica.

Thanks, the DR of the X-E1 is impressive - it really shows in shots like this.

I forewarned you that it wasn't pretty . Its quite light for a macro lens.

Another wide open sample....

Everyone should go to the Fuji website and do the July firmware update. It's really quite good, and now we get focus peaking and faster AF that locks more frequently in low light.

My initial impressions are definitely positive. I also started a separate thread to discuss it so that we don't totally flood the image thread: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1228939

Xe-1 with a Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/4. hand held before firmware update.





New firmware updates are done, I just need to get out & shoot some and see how they all go.

Little SOOC JPEG action, XE1 with Minolta 35-70/3.5 macro. Got the little EOS-M in today (bought for my inlaws) and thought I'd 'do a shoot'

tjpenton, love your photos in post p.116 #10! Really beautiful, especially the first.
cputeq, fascinating shot with all the jets.
michael49, really like your canoe set, particularly #2.
xenor, looks like a nice walk! I like #6 and 7 the most.
