Snapshot of the day: Enchanted: Fuji X Pro2

enchanted_wsp_kobalphoto
Tested the Fuji X Pro2 over the weekend, lovely camera, you might wonder why I didn’t pick one up when it came out? Well….you can probably guess I am more interested in the X T2 :) although I have to admit, I am very tempted to get the X-Pro2. The main caveat though is processing time, since Capture One only supports uncompressed raw files, it takes longer to import and generate previews then with A7RII files! Image quality against the A6300, the X Pro2 lags ever so slightly behind, that too was a surprise.
Tethering isn’t enabled with the Fuji’s either.
When importing files from the A6300 speed isn’t an issue and tethereing is enabled.
So in the end, post work flow issues might steer me away from Fuji again….

Model of the day: Carley: Shot with the Sony A6300 & 58mm f2

My Sony A6300 became a lot more useful since I added the Meike battery grip, handles much better, especially for manual focusing, the only drawback, I do prefer to remove the card if I don’t shoot tethered rather then downloading the files via USB cable from the camera (too slow). That means I have to remove the grip every time, other then that I love it. I rediscovered the Helios 44-2, which I had laying around and completely forgot about it, this little lens produces lovely low contrast files wide open, tack sharp and if stopped down by only 1/2 a stop, the contrast increases dramatically. Quite like the low contrast look for portraits.
