    Tasmanian Old Growth Forest

    The viewing experience of the image is so rich that I feel as if I'm looking into the real forest through the window or from the open terrace, especially after clicking on the image. Thank you for enlightening!

    The GAS Conundrum

    In which direction?!

    ...or the 360 degree VR pano?

    The GAS Conundrum

    E-M1 Mk II has a free-angle LCD, as opposed to the Mk I, which should be very beneficial to your current work. I briefly handled EOS RP. It feels so cheap that I would doubt you would be inspired.

    Some initial images with X-E3

    Apparently, the X-E3 can handle very mixed lighting pretty well. 🙂 This image was shot with Zeiss Touit 1.8/32.

    Some initial images with X-E3

    About a month ago, I decided to leave the DSLR world for good and switched to Fuji X system. I wanted to reduce the weight and size as much as I could, so I went straight to X-E3 and 23/2.0 kit which was a bargain. Another encouraging factor was Capture One Express Fujifilm. I alread had stopped subscribing Adobe CC a couple of months before because I don't really use much of its advanced functions like layers. I had used Capture NX-D to edit NEF files from D750. I had heard that the profiling of Capture One for the X-trans sensor was excellent. Here are some initial shots with X-E3 and 23/2.0. All images were shot as RAW and processed in Capture One Express. The first three images were shot at ISO3200.

    Beautiful color, Vivion!

    These are images shot inside the building to the left of the cherry blossoms. I had to rotate both of these images very slightly in order to compensate for the slight tilt.

    New Fuji user - X-T3

    Actually, I had referred to the very website before I made my previous post (although I didn't use that function.).

    New Fuji user - X-T3

    The B&W images look nice. X-Pro2 is a very big camera: it is just as wide as D750 and taller than X-T3 except for the pseudo pentaprism part.

    New Fuji user - X-T3

    So far as the timing of (fully or partially) switching to Fuji is concerned, I guess we (you and me) are pretty lucky. The Capture One Express makes the processing free and a breeze. Recently, they added the profiles of most of the genuine Fuji lenses, which improves the image quality even more.

    Some initial images with X-E3

    X-E3 seems to cope with this specialty lens pretty well. Shot with Nikkor-O 55/1.2 a.k.a. CRT Nikkor.

    Moon and magnolias. I'm pleasantly surprised by the amount of pliability of RAF file in Capture One Espress Fujifilm (I've processed RAF files only in C1, so I cannot compare).

    Going way back....

    Alan, as you did, a tripod and a hat will come to the rescue!

    Going way back....

    An intriguing experiment, Alan! So, you just did point & shoot!
  19. Armando, I can concur with your observation. The 23/2.0 is 6mm longer than the 35/2.0. With their accompanying hoods and caps attatched, the difference will be around 1cm (sorry for the dusty image). The spring of the genuine lens cap feels a bit too weak, so I use a third party one seen on the 32/2.0 in the image. Its thickness is almost the same as that of the genuine one.

    The interrupter

    Thank you, Luc. I'm also a big fan of minimalistic styles of any art form. The less the information, the more room for imagination.

    The "Off Centre" Mind Of The Fujifilm X-E3

    I share the same experience as Daniel, in terms of the viewfinder of X-E3, but, aside from the magnification, the narrow view angle of the view finder is practically the same on all cameras I have used, DSLR or mirrorless. Maybe Panasonic GH5 is the only exception. As for the left-eye shooting, I have never enjoyed the benefit of right-eye shooters even though I have used various genuine rangefinder (Leica Ms and Fuji GW680) or rangefinder style cameras (GX8 and X-E3). So, I'm pretty much accustomed to the left-eye shooting.

    Platon & Dylan McDermott

    Platon's comment starting at 17:26 sounds very important, and I would fully agree. Thanks for sharing, Dallas!

    Some more. Shot with XF35/2.0. The second image was trimmed a bit.

    The "Off Centre" Mind Of The Fujifilm X-E3

    I like this rangefinedrer-style design because I look into the viewfinder with my left eye, which enables me to hold the lens closer to the center of my face than a DSLR style body. I also like the flat-top design which make the camera look less bulky.
