In the month of September, I decided to give photography a go.Armed with my modest fujifilm - I took random shots of my surroundings (like a tourist, lol); you need to know the limitations of your camera before you embark on a photo shoot.I quickly learnt that there was a whole new language in the world of photography: noise, negative space, stock oriented images and so on.I went to research these concepts and started to understand what make a good image.Refused files came with critiques... continue reading
I've been a fan of Fuji's higher-end cameras ever since I dumped a Nikon D70 for an end-of-line S3 Pro.Fuji's S3 Pro was based on an even older end-of-line Nikon film body and had some quirks that made it almost impossible to shoot in raw. Well, that's not true - the S3 could shoot three consecutive RAW files before the camera locked up and “buffered” for the better part of 30 seconds.I forgave the S3 Pro and used it as a primary camera long after it should have been replaced simply because... continue reading
In my last blog I was asking people for their advice on a new camera. So a big thank you to everyone for your helpful comments. I finally decided to go for the Fuji finepix Hs20 exr. So far it has been brilliant. I love the manual zoom, which not many of the bridge cameras have and I think the quality is very good. I've only used some of the settings so far and I'm really excited to play around with it further.So these are the first uploads from this camera. So far so good. continue reading
My de facto camera for stock is the Nikon D7000, and with the release of the Fuji X-Pro 1, I researched as to whether it would be a viable (and lighter) alternative to my pre-existing system.The forums seemed to be filled with haters and lovers of the X-Pro 1. Those who did not like it blasted its AF, its battery life, initial lack of RAW support by Adobe, and a variety of other things. Those who loved were enamored with the quality of its images, and the fact that it liberated them to shoot more.... continue reading
Two interesting cameras were released this week by Canon and Fuji.First up is the Canon Powershot GX 1.It is basically a slightly larger G12 (body size wise) but with a sensor that is basically a bit bigger than micro four thirds.Here is a link to a preview: Canon G1 X previewSo it promises all the form and control features (minus the dedicated ISO ring) of the Canon G12 with a much larger sensor.That should help a bit with depth of field control and noise.My main complaint is... continue reading
I must confess that I'm on an endless quest - in search of a compact camera that has a few key requirements:1. Portable.I want a zoom for unexpected situations, and it must fit in a pocket or purse when needed.I find cameras like the Canon S95 just a bit too small, without enough control or room to hold them.A Canon G12 is more my size...2. Quality.I want it to have enough quality.I understand that a small pocket camera will usually be inferior to a dSLR.Occasionally it will be the... continue reading
I caught cold and I'm home and I have lots of time to browse DT database. I'm more and more convinced that I can be really happy to be among such creative artists like DT submitters.Today I discovered a great portfolio of Japaneese photographerHiroshi Ichikawa. His is specialized in photographing the Mount Fuji. Can you imagine, about 400 images only about one subject?! Amazing.I think his portfolio is a great example of creativeness. In how many ways you can make pictures of your favorite subject?... continue reading
My 25th image was shot on my wife's point and shoot 5MP Fuji FinePix Z series camera.I was a bit surprised, because I've been shooting on a film SLR for so long.I have taken many shots with the FinePix camera, and now I am rooting through those images to find the ones that are clear enough to upload.In any case, I will soon (in the next couple weeks) purchase a DSLR.I have decided on the Canon EOS 450D (named Kiss X2 here in Japan).I am excited about that and plan to shoot much more and... continue reading
