  1. My adopted home city of Porto (in Portugal) is so beautiful and photogenic, that even Leica send photographers here to shoot. I may live here, but I don’t have a Leica… But it’s not problem, because I have a Fuji! (3 in fact!!) If the people make a place, and in turn the place makes the people, then what sort of pictures can you capture? Well Leica have just released a new model M. No don't worry, here's not the place to find out about it, you can do that at their website. But I cannot tell a lie, I did watch their promotional video... ...for one simple reason, they sent a trio of 'Togs to Porto. So the mighty Leica deem Porto worthy of flying in photographers to capture street scenes here... Cool! But for me, when I want to do that, I just leave the house! So armed with a "mere" (sic) Fujifilm, let's take a bus ride (sorry I can't spring for a plane) into town and see what we can see! The Purposeful Explorer by Adam Bonn, on Flickr “The Purposeful Explorer" Porto rolls down the valley into the Douro river, criss-crossed by ancient side streets. Like any popular tourist destination, it pays to explore away from the main areas, to see and feel as much as possible. Who knows... maybe you'll be so enamoured with a place that you'll end up living somewhere new! Street Cards: A Serious Matter by Adam Bonn, on Flickr “Street Cards: A Serious Matter" Wander away from the main streets and you'll see local life flourish. Groups playing card games, this is clearly a serious business! The Attraction & Fear of Nice Things by Adam Bonn, on Flickr “The Attraction & Fear of Nice Things" Porto has many shops, a lot of them are not 'chain' stores, but independent places selling treats and delicacies. Meats, cakes, Port, wine, coffee... Nice things! You should definitely treat yourself, well if you're allowed in that is! The Attraction & Fear of Nice Things by Adam Bonn, on Flickr A Forgotten World by Adam Bonn, on Flickr "A Forgotten World" To my eye at least, Porto offers the chance to see people go about their lives, in surroundings that have not really changed for a great number of years. This, too me, has a special charm that drives home the notion that things do change, but they really don't. It's wonderful that a company such as Leica acknowledges Porto* as a destination that demands photography, if you visit the city, I guarantee you'll see the sights that those Leica photographers did, you'll love them and photograph them, and you should start there. But if you then venture just a few hundred meters away from those famous places, you'll see the views from a slightly less well trodden (but no less authentic) path. The Timeless Line by Adam Bonn, on Flickr "The Timeless Line" Whatever camera you shoot (and no matter who's picking up your travel costs) you'll find a little spark of visual magic on these streets. Happy travels, where ever you go (*Yes, I'm aware of Leica's manufacturing connection to Portugal!)
  2. Flying to Tibet (Tibet Airlines) 031a2217-01 by yhcvn, on Flickr
  3. Hi all, I am going to Australia for 3 weeks towards the end of 2016. By that time I will have upgraded from my Fuji X-E1 (which is getting long in the tooth) to the X-T1 (with vertical grip). I cant decide which road to go down in terms of lenses to accompany the X-T1 on my trip. Currently I have the 18mm F2 and 35mm F1.4 which served me well in Italy for the most part last summer. However, I dont want to regret missing a shot because of absent focal lengths from my kit. Therefore I was thinking of selling the 18mm and getting the 18-135mm for versatility (amongst other benefits OIS WR etc) and keep the 35mm for situations where I want to get creative with depth of field etc. Alternatively I was contemplating selling both the 18mm and 35mm to get the 16-55mm F2.8 as a do everything lens. I guess my options are; X-T1 with both 18mm and 35mm (small, light and fast but limited reach) X-T1 with both 18-135mm and 35mm (versatile and the option to go fast if needed) X-T1 with 16-55mm only (fairly versatile although will the lack of OIS affect me in low light and will 55mm give me enough reach). Thoughts ? Bhamx2

  5. Hello everyone, I was looking around in the Nature & Wildlife section and didn't really find any post dedicated to share wildlife photo's. Not looking for your typical home pets or barnyard animals, but for wildlife found in the actual wild, park's, safari's, and so on ... Looking forward to see your photographs! Here is a photo taken during a visit at the Barbary Macaques conservation & research center 'La Montagne des Singes' in Kintzheim, Alsace.

  9. Namaste Fuji people. I recently tried an XPro-2 and loved it so much I bought one, sold all my Nikon equipment and bought an XT-2 and some lenses. I'm traveling India for six weeks with a backpack and small camera bag. I brought both bodies, five batteries, a bunch of cards, four lenses: 16mm f/1.4, 23mm f/2, 35mm f/1.4 and the 56mm f/1.2, a travel tripod, a MacBook Pro and two hard drives. I'm really happy with everything and how all the gear is performing. If anyone has any questions about how the gear is working out, please feel free to ask. I started a website for my trip, the Fuji images are under my blog and in the India image gallery. I'm only a couple of weeks in, but I've figured out my workflows and what setups I like. Thanks for letting me share. Cheers, Kevin kevinlapresle.com

    Although the general light conditions were pretty crappy during our boat trip through Lan Ha Bay (too much sunshine, wrong time of the day), the rays of light that bathed this lonely swimming fisher's hut and gave the corresponding net an impressive glow were pretty beautiful.

  16. I currently have an XE2 with the 18-55mm and 10-24mm lenses. I'm going travelling soon and have just spotted that (in the UK) there's £150 cash back on the Fuji 18-135mm and I'm quite tempted to get it to give me more versatility on holiday. However, I'm a bit worried that it might be a big on the large side when paired with the XE2 - anybody got that set up and how do you find it as a carry around all day unit?
  17. Hi everybody! During Christmas 2014, me and my girlfriend spent three weeks traveling through the northern half of Vietnam. The tour was (unsurprisingly) more or less: Hanoi --> Cat Ba --> Ninh Binh --> Hue --> Hoi An Wait... what? Heard that somewhere before? Well, that's right. This is the second of two "twin threads". Check out the (rather mediocre) landscapes over here. After having a long, hard second look at all the pictures, I decided to make a dedicated thread for the street shots. Normally, I would consider myself more of a landscape photographer, but I have definitely shot far better landscapes with my trusty X-T1 than on this trip. And even after several months back, I still like the documentary-style shots way better than the landscapes. One reason might very well be that with all the heavy-DSLR-lugging tourists everywhere, the X-T1 made me feel rather unobstrusive, so I had no problem getting in close and establishing some sort of contact with the people I shot. Or in some cases - take a few steps back: This was also the trip that made me seriously fall in love with the 35mm-equivalent (which was the XF 23mm 1.4 back then... and which also led to an additional X100T later on... *sigh*). So, let's get this finally started with the... Streets of Hanoi, Part I Make no mistake - If you're not used to Asia, arriving in Hanoi will come to you like a shock. Well, it certainly did for me. The smog made breathing pretty heavy already when we left the airport. The taxi ride into the city gave us a glimpse of the madness that's called traffic which would await us in the Old Town. People keep telling you and they do because it's true: It does take you something like half an hour to cross the street at first. Unless you have a death wish. After half a day, however, I got used to the constant madness, crossing the street became merely a matter of not looking left and right, walking at a constant pace, trusting the motorbikes to drive past you and NOT EVER STOPPING ONCE YOU STARTED WALKING. It's about then when your attention is drawn to all the things that are going on around you at the side of the streets: This fairly quickly made me finally fall in love with the city. I don't know how other tourist experiences are, but I felt pretty much unhasseled and safe wherever I went. And the food is absolutely delicious - we pretty much started eating street food right away and never had any issues. Sitting on a plastic chair within all the chaos, scrubbing your spoon and chopsticks clean, eating ridiculously delicious noodles of all varieties, served with fresh herbs you've probably never tasted before (and which you share with pretty much everyone near the food stall) is just a great experience. Oh, and did I mention the cà phê sữa? Try the coffee! Drink the coffee! Love the cof... okay, I guess you got it.
  18. Hi everybody! During Christmas 2014, me and my girlfriend spent three weeks traveling through the northern half of Vietnam. The tour was (unsurprisingly) more or less: Hanoi --> Cat Ba --> Ninh Binh --> Hue --> Hoi An I would consider myself more of a landscape photographer and I have definitely shot far better landscapes with my trusty X-T1 than on this trip. (Probably because I spent too much time enjoying the country and the incredibly delicious food... ) However, I would like to start my first topic here with Vietnam anyway for a simple reason: This was the trip that made me finally switch completely from Nikon to Fuji, for reasons of weight, bulk and inconspicuousness. So, expect a little bit of mediocre landscapes and some decent street shots. I anyway put it in this forum since the subjects are mostly typical travel-centered things. Hope you enjoy! As a starter: One of my favourites from Hanoi's West Lake:
  19. Hello all, thought I would start a friendly dialogue / debate. I am headed to Costa Rica for a week, this will be my first trip leaving my Nikon at home. I have an x-e2 and an x-pro1, and x100s. Plan on taking two just in case, it is the rain forrest. Lens options are. 23mm, 35mm, 56mm, 10-24mm, 18-55mm, and 55-200mm. What would you take and why?? Let the dialogue begin. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and ideas. Nick
