Travel-X This Summer… and a few things you should Put in Your Bag – Battery Charger Adapter, Photo Books & more!

_ _ _

I can feel it…

I feel the lightness, I feel the happiness, I feel the promise of endless possibilities and more time (finally!!) to go out and shoot… or in short: School Is Almost Over, Holidays are Near (ok, apart from FujiRumors, that, don’t worry, will run non stop as always, wherever I’ll be ;) .)

Ok, time to organize my travel and to think what I should not miss to bring with me. Of course, my X-T1 and a few lenses (not more than 3!).

But what else could I need?

I’ve checked out the various topics on our New Fuji X Forum, and found some interesting stuff, good for travels, that I would like to share also on FujiRumors.

POWER ADAPTER FOR FUJI’S BATTERY CHARGER
shared by FXF Member Prabbit

Why take that cable on holidays? Let’s get rid of it. FXF Member Prabbit bought this little cool Adapter for $6.25!

For other solutions, check out this thread at the FXF!

PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS
shared by FXF Member FearTheXNoob

FearTheXNoob asked for some photography Books to read on vacation. The FXF community recommended, among the others:

Dan Winters – Road to Seeing
Zack Arias – Photography Q&A: Real Questions. Real Answers
Bruce Barnbaum – The art of photography
Ansel Adam’s – The Negative
Galen Rowell’s – Mountain Light: In Search of the Dynamic Landscape or Inner Game of Outdoor Photography

For more book recomandations, visit this FXF thread… and feel free to drop your own tips.

TRAVEL PHOTO BACKPACK
shared by FXF Member photog

Just a few recommendations, starting from the one of FXF Member photog:

Lowepro Photo Hatchback 22L AW
MindShift Rotation
Urban Approach 15 Mirrorless Backpack

More nice bags in this FXF thread here.

UNDERWATER HOUSING OR BAGS
shared by FXF Member Mike B

FXF Member Mike B asked: “Has anyone had experience with gear to allow the use of an X-T1 underwater?” The suggestions came in, from the Ewa Marine DB bag to the Meikon 40m/130ft Underwater Waterproof Camera Housing for X-T1! More suggestions in this FXF thread.

FUJIFILM INSTAX SP-1 PRINTER
shared by FXF Member Koban

I can’t recommend the little Fujifilm SP-1 Printer enough! There is dedicated thread at the FXF about it, with some feedback of X-shooters, who used it in their travels… a MUST HAVE!

The Inimitable Beauty of Fuji Colors :: Photojournalist (and X-shooter) Aristide wins World Photography Arts&Culture Award!

 photo winner_zps8gry2sir.jpg

image courtesy: Aristide Economopoulos

There is something special with the Fuji Colors… they have a unique character and inimitable beauty that stands out from the rest of the crowd. And before you start saying it’s just Fanboy bla bla bla, just read this short story.

As many of us in these days, also FR-reader Haye was checking out and enjoying the wonderful pictures that won the World Photography Awards 2015. And while he was clicking from image to image, he stumbled on an amazing picture and thought: “These are Fuji Colors, it must have been shot with a Fuji!”

So he dropped an email to Aristide Economopoulos, the Photojournalist who won the World Photography Arts & Culture Award, asking him if that image had been taken with an X-series camera.

And guess what? Haye was right. Aristide Economopoulos photographed the blond lady with the Fujifilm X-T1 and XF 18mm!

 photo Fuji Colors_zpsfgf8bsjo.png

Haye told me about it and I immediately wrote an email to Aristide, asking for permission to share his image and this story on FujiRumors. Aristide was very kind and shared some more information about his 10 frames “Prom Essay” series, which, as said above, gained the 1st Place in the Arts & Culture section of the World Photography Awards 2015 (Congratulation!).

“7 of the 10 photos were shot with my Fuji X-T1 or X-PRO1. […] The photo of the blonde girl was shot with my X-T1. I like to shoot with the Velvia setting since it was one of my favorite films. I was using the 18mm f2 lens for that photo. Work provides me with Canon gear which is great but I like the small, quiet, non intimidating Fuji cameras. The files they produce are nice and lenses are sharp.

This past summer I shot my whole essay on the resort beach area of Coney Island in New York City with my Fujis and most of my Cuba work is also with them.

I recommend you to check out Aristide’s website www.aristidephoto.com!

Now, according to the poll launched last year in October, the Fuji colors are one of top three reasons to own an X-series camera. And if you still didn’t vote, then here it is again.

enjoy your weekend and Capture the nice Spring Colors with the Great Fuji Colors ;) … feel free to share your shots on the FR-facebook timeline (“add Photo/Video”)

and stay tuned on FujiRumors… more rumors are coming soon… very soon!

FEATURES / FIRMWARE WISHLIST

Mike: “Not a rumor, but a question to share. As I continue to use the X system as my only tools, I find that the main downfall to the X-T1 for fast motorsport work is the lag in the viewfinder when shooting CH, when you pause, you loose your target. What do your readers think of adapting some sort of Sport Finder to the shoe? This could eliminate the problem of loosing and regaining your target. This problem does not exist with the 100 series or the slower XPro1, as there was the ability to view a pass-thru in the viewfinder with those. What do you think? Worth passing on to your Fuji contacts?”

LeFred: “Hi Patrick! You made a poll about a monochrome sensor. There is another feature that would make an X-Pro2 or any other high-end camera stand out : Eye Controlled Focusing. From Wikipedia : “Through the tracking of eyeball movements, EOS cameras equipped with eye-controlled focusing (ECF) (some identifiable by the suffix E) were able to select the desired autofocus point in the scene, based on where the user was looking in the viewfinder frame. ECF was especially useful in sports photography where the subject may shift its position in the frame rapidly. EOS cameras equipped with ECF were the EOS A2E (U.S. model names are shown; see the table below for equivalents in other countries), EOS Elan IIE, EOS IXe, EOS-3, EOS Elan 7E, and EOS Elan 7NE. Canon did not continue its use of eye-controlled focusing in its digital SLRs. The EOS Elan 7NE was the last EOS camera to have this function.”

Lamartiny: “Hi Patrick, I have just read your Open Letter to Fujifilm about Kaizen e Firmware update. I sugest you to add another approach in your list, is a path that Canon made allowing the “parallel” firmware modification wiht MagicLantern (http://www.magiclantern.fm/about.html). Read a bit about it and you’ll figure out that it’s a good way where Fuji can avoid spend a lot of money to keep updated old cameras but still possible the community do this. Beside this the community can implement feature never imagined by Fuji. Things like this happened to Apple and Jailbrake, feature ware implemented by Apple after Jailbrake had already implemented. So, I hope you like and embrace this idea.”

WORKSHOPS

Kashmir Workshop

Join Fujifilm X-Photographer Matt Brandon as he leads a small group of photographers through the narrow streets of ancient Srinagar, Kashmir, India on the Kashmir Valley Photo Trek and Workshop for 2015. Matt lived in Kashmir for 13 year with his family. Every summer for years, he lead treks and tours in the Valley of Kashmir so very few photographers know the area like he does. Join Matt for 12 days of photographic bliss: you will be staying on houseboats on the historic Dal Lake and will be treated like royalty. You’ll not only visit the bustling city of Srinagar: participants will also spend several night camping in the Indian Himalaya among nomadic shepherds. For more info on the trek itself check this post out. This really is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity. For more information and registration visit HERE.

Istanbul Workshop & more

Rico is also offering several workshops. The next ones will be Fuji X Secrets Weekend at the 30./31 May in Schwabach / Nürnberg (GER) and you can also participate at the Fuji X Secrets Istanbul Foto Workshop (from 30 April to 5 May) in the fascinating city of Istanbul.

THE BIG WORLDWIDE FUJIFILM – IN STOCK – & – DEALS – OVERVIEW

 photo instoc_zpsd776bfc7.jpg

It’s time to make a big IN STOCK OVERVIEW today, exactly 3 months after the announcement of the XF50-140, the X100T, the 56mm f/1.2 APD and the graphite X-T1.

At the bottom, I’ve listed also some of the DEALS Fujifilm launched worldwide and that will EXPIRE SOON, from USA to Australia, from UK to Germany and Italy… and if you know some more deals, just drop them in the comments down below.

To those, who supported FR in the past, thanks a lot! Without your help I could close FR tomorrow morning.

Feel free to purchase your gear using one of the links below. No extra costs for you, but a small commission is valued back to FR. It will allow me to cover the operational costs of this blog and keep up my rumor sleuthing 365 days a year… even now that I’m in bed with high fever ;-) .
