First attempt at using a rangefinder for street photography — Fuji X-Pro2

Most street photography is absolute garbage. Far too often, the bulk of street photography shots are boring, un-engaging, creepy, intrusive, and utterly voyeuristic trash. Not to mention cliche’ — “oh look, a wrinkled homeless person” — YAWN! Also, the photos are usually black and white, with the clarity slider cranked to the max. Once in a blue moon however, ...

Sita’s senior photos in the rain — shot with a Fuji X-T2 and Fuji 50–140mm f/2.8

Taking senior photos in the Puget Sound during mid October can only mean one thing — rain. No point in rescheduling, no point in getting upset about it, and no point in trying to pay attention to the weather forecast. Plan for rain. That’s exactly what my clients and I talked about in the weeks ...

The results are below (see captions for photo ...

Fuji X-Pro2 — Day 2

Well, I discovered another area that Fuji cheaped out on the X-Pro2 — wi-fi. I tried transferring some of the images to my iPhone 6s Plus today, and using the full resolution photos, it was painfully slow to transfer the files. When I got home, I decided to look at the specs of the iPhone 6s Plus ...

Fuji X-Pro2 — Samples, Edits, and First Impressions

After one day of use, here are my first impressions of the Fuji X-Pro2: Pros: Fastest shutter of any Fuji X camera — the X-T1 seemed to have a delay. Great analog controls — especially the joystick. Image quality is awesome and more like the original X-Pro1 than the X-T1 (i.e. more detail, less waxy skin tones). Uses the ...

I cancelled my Fuji X-Pro2 order and bought a Canon 7D Mark II.

BE SURE TO READ THE MARCH 4TH UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE Why? Because, I really like my Fuji X-T1. Here’s a list of pros about keeping my X-T1: It responds reasonably well. I’m quite happy with the images. The control layout is wonderful. The tilting LCD is very useful. The EVF is ...
