A northern cardinal

This photo of a male northern cardinal was taken with Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Konica Hexanon AR 400mm f/5.6 UC AE lens. At f/16, the chromatic aberration (CA) along tree branches is well noticeable under this kind of backlight situation. Fortunately, … Read More

Konica Hexar AF

Konica Hexar AF is really a nice small camera. While its autofocus system and its fastest shutter speed of 1/250 second sometimes bother me, my overall experience with it during my trip to Munising, MI, was very pleasant. It’s light … Read More

John Nolen Drive at Night

It’s been a while without taking photos at night. I don’t feel like it’s my thing, but it’s fun to do it once in a while. This was a 2-minute exposure, and I turned off the noise reduction function so … Read More

Interstate

Having heard good things about Capture One, I finally gave it a try this week and found it dose process images from X-Trans sensor much better than Lightroom does. Different color, in a good way, and much more details. Its … Read More

Devil’s Lake

I visit the Devil’s Lake State Park almost every year, mostly in fall. With heavy rain in Wisconsin for the past couple of weeks, the water level is really high. Fortunately, the rain stopped and I was able to set … Read More

Great Blue Heron and Wood Ducks

Although I don’t have any experience with other 400mm lenses, from any brand, I think the Hexanon AR 400mm f/5.6 UC lens may not be considered a sharp one under today’s standard. But I have to spend more time with … Read More

Spring 2013

The more I use the X-Pro1, the more I like it, especially its color. Although it still has some quirks I would never like, I guess I can’t ask too much. After all, no camera is perfect. The Hexanon AR … Read More

Two Trees

Some of you may know that I broke my Fujifilm G617 few months ago, and Fujifilm couldn’t repair it because the parts are no longer available. Not that I repaired it by myself, but I bought another one because I … Read More

Spring is (almost) here

We had about a week of spring in Wisconsin. And all of a sudden it felt like winter again today, although we didn’t get 10+ inches of snow in Madison.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Konica Hexanon Lenses

It’s about time to bring my Konica Hexanon Project into digital era. The Fujifilm X-Pro1 seems to be an ideal camera for the project, and I really love the color rendering from the X-Trans sensor. Its poor auto-focus would not … Read More
