Festival No. 6 (without a mirror) ....

Recommended Posts

Given all the discussion on mirrorless cameras, fuji's etc, I thought I would post my blog on my recent experiences testing the X-T1 with a selection of lenses lenses... 

 

Warning - contains geekery and lovely images in equal measure ;-)

I am using Fuji ooc JPGs more than I thought, now my usual approach for news type stuff. The big test will come in November when I do the Classic Motor Show as I have had probelsm in the past with spotlights on highly polished cars leaving deep shadows that block up in most ooc JPGs - I nearly always need to lift the shadows and often there is nothing there in the JPG (so I always shoot  Fine+RAW in such circumstances, not brave enough to forgo the Raw backup). How did you find the shadows or with the subject matter did you let the deep shadows go black, that is what I used to do with film.

 

But the ooc JPGs solve my CA issue, another thread. :)

On the shadows - it depends... I do not have a problem with blacks or for that matter whites..... saying that i did lift the shadows in a few of the shots...

Thanks very much for sharing this Julie - very enjoyable. I too use Fuji for all my day to day stuff and am really pleased with the results but haven't had the courage to shoot jpegs. This will change.

I have also used my X-E1 with a Novoflex adaptor and my Nikon 200-400. Some of these are on Alamy somehwere..

Portmerion is right in my back yard and I didn't know about the festival..... Thanks for that info too !

Best Wishes

John

Glad to hear of your experience.  I have essentially the same three bodies....with relation to ISO, I've been shockingly surprised as well.  I have an image in my portfolio here at Alamy that I shot with the XT-1 at 26,500 iso.  Seriously - that's not a typo 26,500 iso.  I was very surprised at the result and it is certainly still a usable image.

 

I am hoping that the new "Classic Chrome" will take care of having to lift the shadows on occasion :)
