  • Replied in 60mm f2.4...
    I am an old guy also, and let me tell you the Fuji 60mm 2.4 is a sweet lens.  I had it and my daughter wanted one also, so rather than have two 60mm's in the family, I gave it to her and bought ...
  • Replied in Skin fix method
    This has been around for years, I just made a photoshop action of it and pretty much use it to some degree on all those photographs of people, I love the effect, but hey, that's just me. Just one ...
  • Replied in This is...
    Tedolf...I'm not new to this game.  I know and use probably 5 different photoshop skin softening techniques, not to mention Nikon soft filters.  The particular shot was to see how a 16mp file with ...
  • Replied in This is...
    Thanks for taking a look.  You do have a way with words.  BTW...there was no sharpening, in fact I went over the skin with a skin fix app and skin does have pores, or do you prefer the plastic ...
  • There was something that bothered me about the photograph.  It is a extreme crop from the original, trying to determine how much of a crop a could give a 16mp file and still get a good 12 X18 out ...
  • Created discussion thread Linda....
    Shot with a Fuji X-T1 with my new 56mm f1.2 lens (85mm FF equiv), one speedlite in a Godox softbox
  • I sense a lot of reluctance to crop files on this forum hence the multiple lenses of various focal lengths that are carried, and I understand the various reasons. But the Fuji lens and camera ...
  • I had a Nikon Coolscan dedicated film scanner, but not using my desktop system anymore just my 2 laptop hooked to a 24" monitor, the Coolscan was not compatible. I now use a Epson flat bed scanner ...
  • When I left the film world, I didn't look back.  However, I do occasionally get pings of nostalgia about the film cameras I owned, last one a couple of Nikon F3's, great classic camera, built to ...
  • I wanted to simplify my life and camera gear (lot of Canon FF stuff), thinking maybe just a FujiX with a 50mm FF equiv. fast lens.  Then  something took over my brain, the damn voices and ended up ...
  • Take a look at a Think Tank Retrospective 6, looks like an army messenger bag, small, but can carry a lot of stuff. Does not scream, lot of expensive camera equipment inside. https://www.amazon.com ...
  • Replied in Thank you...
    It was nice of you to make those kind comments. You might like my newest little show I did after reflecting on what my photography has meant to me and my family. I went back and gathered just a ...
  • Sweet little flash, works flawlessly, just the right size and weight for hot shoe mounting and off shoe with the XT1 transmitter. I have both and also a Godox 685.  If you need a small flash for ...
  • Replied in Wait, what?
    Exactly, and you are correct, the same holds true for the Fuji 35/1.4, although much to my surprise it does a nice job if you are not 12" from the subject.  I do have the 56 and it does a pretty ...
  • Replied in Wait, what?
    I don't want to belabor the point,  The distortion I am talking about is for close up head shots.  In your examples, I agree, you would hardly notice any difference.
  • Replied in Wait, what?
    I think we are talking about 2 different things.  All I am trying to say is the get the same composition, a headshot head and neck with a 23mm vs. 35mm, the 23mm is going to distort the face.  Of ...
  • Replied in Wait, what?
    Best way to  answer your reply is for you to take a fuji 23mm lens and take a head shot (head and neck facing camera) and do the same with a 35mm lens,SAME FRAMING.  You will notice the 23mm ...
  • This is a sweet combination, very light and 2 different FOV.  I love the 18 on the X-E2.  The 35/1.4 doubles the focal length of the 18mm, which is fast becoming a favorite lens on this forum ...
  • Replied in Absolutely!
    While I have the X-E2, the 35/1.4 is "special", not going to start the magic thing again. The 35/1.4 is the do it all lens, low light, portrait, landscape, product. I have posted this before and ...
  • I also have a X-T1 and see no difference from it or the X-E2.  Even the chart you posted, the difference is insignificant considering all the variables in real world shooting.
