Fujifilm X-T1 - Fujinon XF 35mm (53mm eq.) prime 1/680" f11 ISO 400 Converted into monochrome with Silver Efex Pro 2 Sorry I'm late, but my dayjob is getting very demanding lately, as it does every June and July (hey, I'm not complaining at all!). After three months of intensive (to my standards) use, I'm now ready to tell my final opinion on the Fujifilm X-T1. And I'll do it the usual way, in the form of a list of what I like and what I don't. Ready? Go. Size and weight couldn't be better. The unit is perfectly balanced... Continue reading

Fujifilm X100S - Fixed Fujinon Asph. 23mm (35mm eq.) prime 1/80" f8 ISO 200 Converted into monochrome with Silver Efex Pro 2 For some reason, French buildings have names, pompous names. Even the crappier suburban condo is commonly addressed as "L'Impérial" or "Le Royal" or, more educatedly, "Le Balzac". The one in those photographs, which is located in Antibes and distinguishes itself for the cubic balconies, has been christened "Le Katmandou". It wasn't the first time I had been shooting the Katmandou, but this time I had Fuji cameras in my shoulder bag. And it shows! Fujifilm X-T1 - Fujinon... Continue reading

Nikon D1X - Nikkor 35mm (50mm eq.) prime w/polarizer 1/2500" f8 ISO 125 Converted into monochrome with Photoshop's channel mixer Days ago, while searching my storage disks for old French Riviera shots, I stumbled upon those three photographs which I find are very close to my current production. The first one dates back to 2004, while the second one has been taken in 2003, and was one of my last film-era pictures. The one at the bottom is more recent: 2009. Speaking of film, I spent last weekend taking photographs with a borrowed Leica M Monochrom, which is not a... Continue reading

Fujifilm X-T1 - Fujinon XF 56mm (80mm eq.) w/polarizer 1/170" f11 ISO 400 Converted into monochrome with Silver Efex Pro 2 The brightly lit buildings and empty spaces of the Foro Italico compound in Rome make one of the most celebrated masterworks of the Italian Rationalism, as well as the ideal subject to test the monochrome attitude of last generation's Fuji X-Trans sensor. As Fuji-related posts build up on this blog, I realize that my announced review of the X-T1 has already started, and will continue with further "chapters", each focused on a different aspect of the camera.
