Some recent images.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

These images are shot within a month.  The subjects/themes are at random.  All images were shot with Fuji X-E3.  The lenses used was an adapted Ai Nikkor 200/4.0 (sunrises) and Zeiss Touit 35/1.8 (flowers).  All images were processed in Capture One Express Fujifilm.

X-E3 with Zeiss Touit 1.8/32.

 

The "Eterna" profile kept the dawn clouds in strong red from over-saturation.

Looks like you are still having fun.  Eterna is one of the colour profiles that hasn't caught my eye yet - i'm still shooting a lot of Velvia.

 

How are you finding the adapter to Nikon lenses?  Which adapter are you using.

Interestingly, contrary to your experience, I've never really used Velvia profile.  I rarely use Provia profiles either, because it all too often looks over-saturated.  (Your images have never really look over-saturated, though.)  I prefer Astia most of the time.  I chose Eterna for the dawn image because, as noted, the saturation in the red channel was a bit too overwhelming.

 

Having said that, Capture One Express Fujifilm works with RAFs from extremely well and makes the processing a lot easier and more intuitive than CC or Nikon Capture NXD with NEFs from D750.

 

As for the Nikon F to Fuji X mount adapter, I use two different Rayqual adapters.  One is the most simple one and the other one with the tripod foot and the aperture control ring for G-type lenses.  These adapters are as expensive as the Novoflex ones, but I was lucky to find mint used ones at very friendly prices.

Morning clouds lit by the light of the rising sun reflected from the sky.

 

The contrast of the clouds were so low that I had to switch the profile from Astia to Classic Chrome in Capture One and additionally raise the contrast and the saturation.

Fuchsias with a little visitor.  Z-E3 with Touit 1.8/32.  Cropped to around the half of the original size.
