X-mas gift ideas + San Disk Extreme price drops

Share

Hi

Today I woke up, early, as usual, but when I looked out the window I saw, that for the first time this winter, the whole little village where I live was covered with snow. What a view from my window at the last floor, over all the white roofs and mountains! Everything was so silent in the dawn. Some warm light flickered in the houses of my neighbours and the smoke of the chimneys rose up into the dark grey sky. It’s maybe the first time, after all the really hard works of this last time, that I realized that soon X-mas is here. And I still didn’t purchase any gifts. But I don’t want to put myself under stress again…

Coffee and Mac, check the web… and I immediately found mingthein.com x-mas blog post! It’s a nice list for all those, like me, who have photographer friends, and are looking for an interesting gift. Compacts, CSC, DSLR, Lenses, Accessories, Books and more.

Well, for obvious reasons, I excluded expensive cameras from my gift list. I’m still saving money to purchase for myself the… But it’s interesting to see what mingthein included in his list.

So you’ll find the X-F1, which he calls “superb”, and perfect for non photographers who don’t do any postprocessing. There are price drops (see here this post) right now on this cam, so hurry if you’re thinking to buy one.

The X-E1 is not in his list. He says that “truth is I haven’t spent enough time with either to form an opinion. There are things I like, and things I don’t, which mean that I can’t make an objective recommendation either way.”

Also the Accessories are interesting. A cheaper but useful present. I’ll just pick out one of the mingthein list. Look at the price drops on the fast San Disk Extreme PRO and the slower SanDisk Extreme HD sd cards at amazonUS! You can save 66% on the Extreme PRO 32 GB version here and purchase it for $ 69! You can save even more if you purchase this card through B&H (click here). Thanks to Josh who told me about the B&H price through facebook!

So read the full list at mingthein.com.

But also petapixel made his list of what should not miss under the X-mas tree. PetaPixel Photography Gift Guide 2012 includes the X-E1 and much more!

And here an accessory that could be useful for the everyday use of your X-E1. I looked for a hand grip for the X-E1 (see worldwide hand grips for X-E1 here). There are not many until now. The hand grip will add a bit of weight to your camera, but some reviews says that the X-E1 is too easy. So maybe this is not necessarily a bad thing. Of course there are some for the X-PRO1 also here.

So, hope I made your gift-hunting a bit easier.

Have a pleasant day… it’s time for me to go in the snow!

P.S.: and don’t forget the book “Mastering the X-PRO1 (X-PRO1 Handbuch)”. I’m sure X-PRO1 photographers would appreciate it. It’s still to have with a 47% rebate at AmazonUS.

PPS.: share your gift ideas in the comments!

X-TRANS potential unlocked? Phase one confirmes X-series support

Share

This could be a really great news!

Lionel12 of the Phase One Crew writes in this forum (click here): “Let me be a bit on lim here, all you Fuji lowers – look for next Capture One release – real soon now.

This is his answer to all the Fuji X photographers who are waiting for Capture One to support the Fuji X-series RAW’s.

I’m sure you agree with dogmatheque when he says: “This is great news. I sincerely hope you overcame X-trans difficulties. Can’t wait to wave silkypix goodbye.”

Now, we have to wait, and hope that Capture One “tamed” the X-Trans files and that we can finally enjoy the full potential of the X-PRO1 and the X-E1!

So let’s hope they made a better job than Adobe… we will soon have the answer!

Thanks to David who wrote me an email and directed my attention to this forum!
