Topics I've Started

Capture One is now Free for Fuji Free and the version is Fuji specific!!!

03 May 2020 - 01:12 AM

I was able to finally drop Lightroom no more monthly payments. Capture One has a version that is specific for Fuji and the RAW files are amazing I have so much less work to do since its like Nikon Capture it reads all the Fuji data and it stores the edits in the photo file so no more LR catalogs I'm stoked it is a very easy to use program too. The only drawback its only for Fuji RAW files it will though covert other system files if they are JPEG and there is a way to import the files as TIFFs some auto convert but I haven't figured that out yet. 

 

Now there is a Pro version and here's the good news its only $89 for Fuji users and its a forever buy Whooo Whooo. My Nik Filters automatically loaded up and over all this is now my new Photo Editor. It felt so good to click Cancel on Adobe.

 

First few shots messing around with the program.

Added another Fuji Prime Lens XF 27 f2.8 Pancake

03 February 2020 - 12:06 AM

Always loved Pancake lens and I wanted one not for my XT3 but my XE2 since its a rangefinder style and smaller and it would make a great street camera. Its super small and light and it is a nicely built lens can not wait to try it out.

 

So I now have 16mm f2.8 , 23mm f2, 27mm f2.8, 35mm f2 Fuji Primes next up is the 50mm f2! :D

 

Here it is on my XE2, yes I can use it on my XT3 but it seems to just look right on my XE2! :D

Fuji XT3 at ISO 51200

12 January 2020 - 04:55 PM

I took a picture of my EDC(Everyday Carry) Taurus 856UL 38 Spl +P Revolver(yes I am a wheel gun guy) due to its matt black finish knowing it would show noise like crazy. Now I had NR set to +1 and LR applied the in camera settings. The first one is not cropped the 2nd one is a 50% crop all in all very pleased with the results.
