Fujirumors readers roundup
“Hi Patrick, a big HELLO from tiny Luxembourg I’ve been following Fujirumors ever since my interest in Fujifilm cameras arose, with the announcement of the fantastic X-E1 last year.
A couple of weeks ago, I spent a morning shooting an old industry and railway park with my best friend who carried along 4 (!!!) Sony Alpha bodies (he hates changing lenses ), while I only took along the X-E1 equipped with the XF18-55mm lens, the XF 35mm and XF 60mm.
In the end though, I only used the XF 18-55mm. This is one seriously great allrounder!
As far as postprocessing goes: I shot raw and (minimally) edited the shots under LR 4.4. Really love the improved X-Trans support.
The results can be found under: http://500px.com/OliGlod/stories/85077/where-trains-go-to-die (short excerpt) and http://www.blurb.com/b/4228521-one-day-in-fond-de-gras (complete book). I hope you’ll enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed taking them
Best regards, Oli
P.s. Thanks again for all of the hard work you put into Fujirumors!!!
