  1. Thought to start a thread where everyone can share pictures taken of just the random and common things we see daily in our life or we used to see daily in the past etc.. yup ! the things which we usually don't take pictures of thinking it won't look good to showcase . but it actually has a different flavor and it tells a different story about each of us ! . so hope all of you share in this thread often the things which is or were a part of your daily life, but not taken pictures of or showcased or not given importance before !. let's shed some light into the parts where we never did before !. have a great day to all !. i will start with a picture of a calculator i used while i was in collage , recently i took it from the attic and it's battery has leaked and left scars across the display and exteriors . but just brings back many memories.
  2. Ever since I started using manual lens on my fuji-x I've been wanting to experiment with more manual vintage lens. Focal reducer caught my attention and am in the process of learning about different lens mount. I am trying to figure out the most versatile mount to get in order that I can adapt different lens to in the future. So in case for classic manual lens would the Canon FD mount bet the most versatile? Thank you!

  5. I stumbled upon a youtube video from "make art now" ,he was showing the new "DJI LiDAR 3D focus system". , Which can be used to give vintage lens "autofocus" ability . So we can get the oldest and unique Lenses and use it for daily work or fun ,same way we use a lens with auto focus ! .it seems interesting to me and i thought it will be useful for everyone here , who likes some specific vintage lens but wasn't buying it because it doesn't have auto focus ! .
  6. I shoot primarily fashion and portraiture, and have been using a Sony A7 since 2013 with Sony/Zeiss glass with great results for the most part. As my photography improves, I have been gaining a better understanding of my style and have been looking for ways to enhance that style. Essentially, I enjoy photos that have a timeless, vintage look, and sometimes dreamy look to them instead of modern photos that look just like a 100% true representation of the present reality. I know that this look could probably be obtained by using photoshop, tools like VSCO, etc (and this is likely what most people do). However, I have never enjoyed spending hours to manipulate a photo, nor do I find the results very satisfying (perhaps due to my limited knowledge of post-processing too). My solution became a simple one, where I began to explore the advantages of the mirrorless system by buying legacy lenses with the appropriate rendering for my style. In this case, I bought a Zeiss C-Sonnar 50/1.5 for M-mount. This approach worked well and gave me results that were vintage looking with lower contrast and the all important classical look. Of course, it is no secret that the characteristics of the lens translate directly to the sensor and the final photo, making it difficult to change my mind about the mood of a photo after the fact. Another problem is that the lenses are still not optimized for these mirrorless systems, and lens sharpness and performance is understandably lower as a result. There is alot of trial and error involved in finding and testing the right lenses with the appropriate rendering to fit the mood I am looking for. Yesterday, I bought a Summicron 50mm f2, and ended up not liking its rendering with my camera. This had me rethinking about my approach, since I also have an XT-1 that I have been borrowing, which is fantastic and achieves similar results with film simulations which could be altered after the photo is taken. Even when compared to Leica lenses, I find the Fuji glass is every bit as good, especially in terms of colour, sharpness, and micro-contrast. Yes, the photos must still be sharp to be acceptable, but for the most part, I prioritize lens rendering over sharpness. I don't need to have the sharpest lens in the world, but it has to be sharp enough for my use for photographing fashion and portraiture. What are your thoughts on my approach? Does using legacy vintage lenses produce a unique mood and rendering to the photos that is not possible to be created in post-processing? Instead, is it far more desirable to shoot using a neutral lens with extreme clarity and sharpness, and then adjust the rendering, colours, etc. in post-processing? Is Fuji X the solution? The photos attached shows my Jpegs straight out of camera with no editting using: 1) Girl with blonde hair - Sony A7 with Zeiss 50/1.5 C-Sonnar 2) Door - Fuji XT-1 with 23mm/1.4

  8. Hi I have just bought a second but near mint x-e1 which I have paired with vintage lens. I am using a canon fd 50mm, and a Takumar 55mm and have found the images to be soft. I have also used a 35mm Fujian and the images are sharper. I think I am using the camera wrong. I have updated to the latest firmware and can see the focus peaking. In the evf the image is sharp but when I half press the shutter release the image seems to get softer and I refocus, I also use the ring button to magnify the subject and refocus but I am getting soft images. Is this the property of the lens I have? or the as I suspect the way I am using the x-system. Your guidance would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
