Great mood in those indoor shots! I have a feeling, however, that the SuperCCD SR cameras (S3, S5) would have handled that first shot's highlights more gracefully...

Thanks, Carsten. No doubt they would have. However, maybe it's my postprocessing that's lacking…

No, no, I mean that the sensor of the SuperCC SR cameras has special highlight handling, not that anything was wrong with processing. I am sad that Fuji stopped developing those sensors.

A handful of recently processed stuff from over the summer ...

Classic Ford Tanus P1, early 1950s 12M model, spotted at Hofburg in Vienna. This one is called the Weltkugeltaunus, for "Globe Tanus" because of the globe on the leading edge of the bonnet/hood, above the grille.

X-E1 and 14 f/2.8

Hi Rob,
Nice images as always. Lucky man to be able to travel around Europe. Image below pretty much sums why I went to the Fuji system and have sold off my Nikon gear. Because of the portability I just find myself shooting more and having the camera with me more often. Shot below is a natural light image of my daughter. We were headed out I had my XE-1 and Fuji 35 with me. Light at the edge of my garage was awesome. I overexposed to make the garage go black and took one shot. Simple and easy adjustments with the Fuji. Tack sharp at F2. Shot as a jpeg with not a lot of post. I wouldn't have gotten this or most of the other stuff I've taken lately if I still had my Nikon because it would be sitting in my backpack in my closet. Thanks for looking.

Jack

I bought the 55-200 yesterday and took it to the park for testing
Found this little show off:

Sun made a rare appearence here in the UK last weekend, so I forced myself out of bed at 3:30am Easter Sunday to make a 2.5 hour drive down to the coast. Unfortunately, it was actually 4:30am, because the clocks moved forward that night and mine weren't yet changed ... meaning I arrived an hour later than I'd have liked. Still, I was greeted with a beautiful morning.

I used the X-E1 and Fujinon 14mm f/2.8 to sort of document the day's travels, and my 5D3 for some long exposure landscape work. The 14 had a Hoya vari ND mounted as well (at 2-3 stops most of the day) .

Just got around to page 73 on this thread. Beautiful series Rob!

I bought a timer release the other day and was trying to figure out how to get exposures longer than 30s on the XE-1.

I read somewhere online that the aperture ring need to be set to anything other than 'A'mode otherwise it's set to 30s max even if you put it in bulb mode. So I made sure the aperture was set to 16 but could still get no longer than 30s.

I read the manual and it didn't help.

I finally figured it out - the camera was set to burst mode (in the 'drive' button menu), set that back to single shot and bingo.

Just wanted to share this here in case anyone else is/was struggling with >30s exposures.

BTW my timer is some sort of generic no brand made in China thing, works great, now just need some time to go out and get shooting with it.

Hmm I must say that I don't like the 18-55.
I'm a prime lens user (sold my zoom lenses years ago), but when I heard all the praise for the Fuji 18-55 I decided to give it a try so I got the X-E1 kit. My results are very inconsistent. The thing has some nasty field curvature.
I now see that more people noticed it.
Focus-recompose is a drama. Focus can be completely off. Sometimes it can be sharp all over the frame, I guess depending on what you focused.
It doesn't seem to be decentered (like a few other lenses that I got, also an XF 14mm), because there's no asymmetry between the edges.
The lens might be loved by many... but I'm certainly not one of those.

Yeah I am not the biggest fan of zoom lenses either. I'm plenty happy with my 18/35mm prime combo.

The 18-55 also has strong distortion. In Iridient Developer you can turn off the correction that's embedded in the RAW file (you can't in Lightroom). Maybe this strong -varying along the zoom range- distortion makes the field curvature less predictable.

While optically and build wise the 18-55 is notably better, I actually much prefer the Fuji XC 16-50. The wider view and lighter weight make it nice and easy to carry for an all around. I feel constricted by a standard zoom with a 28mm equiv wide end.
