Cactus Fujifilm 4 Comments Converting a difficult image to Black White with Silver Efex Pro March 28 2016 Hi it s been a while since I did a video tutorial so here s an old one about a plug in that suddenly is hot again It s about converting a difficult image with a very bright sky into a dramatic Black White with lots of sky detail Done with my Black White conversion plugin of choice Silver Efex Pro The video also shares some tips on file preparation before you enter the plugin Please note that the info at the end of the video regarding discounts and pricing is no longer accurate In fact that s why I wrote that five year old Silver Efex Pro is hot again while Silver Efex Pro 2 used to be a 199 purchase it s now only available as a bundle the Nik Collection by Google with the other 6 Nik plugins and it has now become completely free Yes that s free as in F R E E That means that Silver Efex Pro is no longer only one of the best Black White plug ins out there it s definitely the cheapest one More about that in this blog post Sure enough at that price it probably won t receive any new features any time soon but I don t really care It s got all the features I need and the Control Point technology is still as amazingly simple to use as it was more than five years ago when the software was released iframe data provider name YouTube You may enjoy these Nik Software

just became free March 25 2016 in Nik Software In this eBook about Dynamic Range I talk about HDR Efex Pro and I also explain a cool technique on how to use a Black White plug in like Silver Efex Pro 2 to enhance the dynamic range of my colour images If you ve followed me online or read some of my eBooks like Pushing Light it probably does not come as a surprise that I m a big fan of the Nik plug ins Years ago you had to pony up some 500 to get the entire suite but after Google purchased Nik about four years ago they slashed the price down to 149 An absolute bargain True apart from Analog Efex Pro an interesting plug in that lets you simulate old school film processes Google did not really update any of the other plug ins There were only compatibility fixes when new OS updates came out It seemed that Google had mainly purchased Nik for Snapseed which is a great and free iOS and Android mobile editing app The best Nik plug ins are the creative ones Viveza Silver Efex Color Efex HDR Efex and Analog Efex Yesterday Google announced that the Nik Collection would follow the same pricing path as its mobile sibling Yes you ve read that right the once so expensive Nik Collection is now entirely free You can start downloading it right now through this link Obviously this probably means that we don t have to expect new features any time soon but you know what The existing features actually work pretty well In fact even though it s been over 5 years since Silver Efex Pro 2 came out I still consider it to be the best Black White plug in on the planet Period Silver Efex Pro in action The unique feature about Nik that you find in all of the plug ins is the fact that you can quickly and easily make local edits without having to create complex masks the amazing patented U Point Technology does the job for you If you happen to speak Dutch you can sign up for a 2 week free trial to Photofacts Academy my Dutch Photography Training website I ve got a 4 hour course on Nik

features part 2 January 16 2016 in Reviews Cameras Lenses Lighting Read about features 1 to 5 in this post In a month I ll be off to India again to teach a travel photography workshop together with fellow X Photographer Matt Brandon and I hope to take the X Pro 2 with me I m really looking forward to the trip When I m traveling I always hope that nothing bad will happen to my gear because it s often difficult to replace or repair That s why I m extremely happy with the next item in my top 10 of new features 6 Weather Sealing Contrary to the X Pro 1 the X Pro 2 is now weather sealed Now truth be told I ve never had any issues with my non weather sealed Fujifilm cameras and they ve eaten quite a lot of dust too but it s still a reassuring feature to have When you re playing with flour it s good to have a weather sealed body and lens to keep the stuff on your model and not in your camera Of course ideally you then have to pair the camera with a weather proofed lens as well such as the beautiful XF 16 mm 1 4 I love that lens because thanks to its wide aperture it still allows me to play with shallow depth of field although it s relatively wide angle Belgium s probably got he ugliest coast line in the world 40 miles of ugly concrete skyscrapers but there are a couple of noteworthy exceptions such as this the Blankenberge Pier Working this close to sea and sand I was happy to be using a weather sealed combo Processed with my Colorific Colour Grading presets but you probably know that by now One of my resolutions for the new year is to use the 16 mm prime a little more I used a Formatt Hitech ND filter to get the exposure within reach of the new 1 250th sync speed 7 Flash improvements This one is pretty big at least for me the sync speed has been increased to 1 250th of a second That means that when you re working at the sync speed of your camera your flashes effectively become one third of a stop more powerful than they were on an X Pro 1 or an X T1 Sofie shot with the X Pro 2 and the Jinbei HD 600 II flash To date still my favourite big gun I m very happy that I can now use flash also in Continuous shooting mode This lets me fire a burst of shots until the flash has to recharge rather than one at a time so I dramatically increase my options of having the right expression or composition when using flash Image postprocessed with my Black White Lightroom presets But even better you can now also use a flash when the camera is set to continuous shooting To be fair it s something almost every other camera has but it s great to see that my X Pro 2 now does it too Especially with more powerful flashes like this Jinbei this means that you can keep on shooting with flash at lower power settings for quite a while until the flash has to recharge This is the same feature by the way that got introduced for the X T1 in the latest firmware update that subsequently got pulled because of a bug So X T1 users this one is coming your way too Finally Fujifilm have announced a new speedlight the EF X500 that is capable of doing High Speed Sync I can t wait to get my hands on that one 8 Improved Bracketing I ve never understood why the bracketing functionality of all Fujifilm cameras was limited to 3 shots with 1 EV If you want to create HDR images that range is often too limited Maybe it has something to do with the new maximum shutter speed of 1 8000th of a second but you can now bracket 3 shots with 2 EV I would still love some more options like shooting 5 or 7 frames but it s already a big step up If you want to go beyond what s currently possible I recommend you do as I do put the camera on a tripod and use the Exposure Compensation function on the Camera Remote App this lets you make up to 7 bracketed shots 1 stop apart without touching the camera 9 An improved menu Image Fujifilm Corporation I already like Fujifilm s menus more than most of the other brands out there but they have made the menu even better it s more legible and there s also a MyMenu which lets you assign up to 16 items for quick acess So between this MyMenu the customizable Quick Menu and the function buttons there really is no shortage of options of having this camera do what you want it to do as fast as possible On thing that did not improve is formatting the card It takes way too many button presses Luckily there appears to be a shortcut which I learned about over at Kevin Mullins excellent review If you re thinking about using the X Pro 2 as a wedding camera read his review and then start saving Oh the shortcut you ask Press the delete key for a couple of seconds and then click on the back command dial 10 3 Power Management Modes Let s be honest Battery life isn t the best feature of the Fujifilm cameras But let s also be honest in that the batteries the X Pro 2 uses the same as the X T1 X Pro 1 and X T10 are very lightweight and compact so adding a couple to your bag won t break your back I think Fuji did well in maintaining the same battery However what they did is offer three power management modes Economy Standard and High Performance As you might guess autofocus speed and EVF refresh rates increase as you switch from the first to the latter but battery life decreases from 330 shots over 250 to 220 I just use High Performance and I pack a couple of spare batteries I guess I ll only use Economy when I see I m popping in my last spare Oh and even in Economy the camera is still a Ferrari compared to the original X Pro 1 So as greater minds have already said Everyting is relative So that s it for this highly subjective top 10 As some of these are firmware related there s some hope that they might trickle down to other cameras too This is what the new interface looks like Again evolution not revolution but it looks and reads better than before There are loads of smaller refinements such as this one you might know there s a digital depth of field scale that you can overlay in the EVF and OVF Only it did not match up with the one found on lenses like the 14 16 and 23 Because the lenses DOF scale was film based with a larger Circle of Confusion in other words larger tolerance whereas the digital scale was pixel based You can now set the digital scale to film based as well If I were a street photographer I d love this feature There are other features such as the new black and white ACROS film simulation and the new grain engine which look nice But as I explained in this blog post as long as there is no Raw conversion software that can actually read the raw files of this camera I set my film simulation to something very neutral as the JPEGs are currently the only thing I can work with Setting a black and white film simulation would mean I currently cannot work on the image in colour and I want to keep my options open If you have any questions I ll be happy to try and address them in the comments Don t forget to switch off the light What about the Tilt Screen Yeah what about it There isn t one as you probably know by now For me it s not a deal breaker Sure enough if the X Pro 2 had one I would welcome it but not if it came at the expense of a bigger bulkier body Between the dual card slot and a tilt screen I ll take the dual card slot any time Also don t forget that you ll be able to wirelessly control the camera with the smartphone App That s even better than a tilt screen in some cases What could be improved Some testers have reported the Exposure Compensation wheel is too loose It did not feel loose on my sample What I would like is that Fujifilm offer the option of saving 16 bit TIFF files to card I feel that Lightroom still isn t squeezing everything out of the RAW files and this would be a nice addition especially for people who shoot rather slow and deliberate like me Alternatively I wish that Fujifilm would release a simple RAW to 16 bit TIFF conversion software Basically a desktop version of the in camera RAW converter that would allow batch processing And no I don t mean Silkypix that awfully complex raw converter that ships with the camera Another thing I would like is to see on the accessory list is a Long Eyecup like the X T1 This helps to block the sunlight and gives more contrast in the viewfinder which is especially helpful on sunny days Finally I would really love to have some more highlight clipping information in the EVF and OVF we can already program a gazillion warnings in the viewfinder but the one I would like to see is a Lightroom style highlight shadow clipping warning showing the actual areas that are clipped Sure there s the live histogram but that only says there s clipping It does not say where that clipping occurs As you can see minor quibbles that are mostly software or firmware related Other than that I really can t think of much So now I m off to shoot some more Where did I put my spare batteries You might enjoy these related articles Apr 22 2016 Lighting Reviews Cactus

Reviews Fujifilm Piet Van den Eynde 4 Comments Tags Fujifilm En 3 Comments The X Pro 2 looks very much like the X Pro 1 So you ll have to take my word for it that that s actually an X Pro 2 on my tripod Not convinced From this angle the diopter adjustment next to the viewfinder is the only giveaway Two months with the X Pro 2 my 10 favourite features part 1 January 15 2016 in Reviews Cameras Lenses Lighting So I ve had the privilige of using a pre production sample of one of this year s most eagerly anticipated cameras for a couple of weeks You could already read about that in this blog post By now your RSS feed and Facebook status page is probably overloaded with features comparisons opinions and what not The following thoughts are not solely based on specs but on actual usage of the camera Given the four year gap between the X Pro 2 and its predecessor there s bound to be a lot of change In this and the following blog post I ll try to outline my personal top 10 improvements of this camera taking into account the way I use it as my everday camera with a focus on travel and flash photography Two of my favourite models Brecht Frannie Shot in an abandoned carpet factory On urbex urban exploring shoots like this I appreciate the fact that all my camera gear fits in my F Stop Loka UL a small and lightweight camera backpack US link EU link Evolution on the outside When I got the camera it felt like reconnecting with an old friend it looks almost identical to the X Pro 1 which I consider a good thing especially from the front In fact I could probably have taken this camera to a Fuji workshop and people would have thought I was shooting my old trusted X Pro 1 Outside there are only a couple of changes and they re all for the better Seen from the front not a lot has changed the EVF OVF lever now not only lets you switch from OVF to EVF but also between the two OVF modes that we now know from the X100T Another barely visible but interesting new feature is the addition of a front command dial Image Fujifilm Corporation revolution within But on closer inspection a lot has actually changed for the better Which brings me to the first point 1 Improved ergonomics This one s so important that I ve actually put it before the obvious advantage the higher megapixel count more about that later The first thing you ll notice is the joystick on the camera s back it has a number of uses but its main use is changing the AF point The advantage is that this frees up the four buttons surrounding the Menu OK button You can now actually program three of them to a custom function If you like to change your focus points as I do the joystick works really well it just takes some getting used to and retraining your muscle memory not to go to the old position On top of that there s 2 more function buttons bringing the total to 5 There is no dedicated WIFI function button but WIFI is obviously included and another big difference with the original X Pro 1 Apparently small changes but ergonomically big ones all buttons are now on the right hand side enabling true single handed operation There s a new joystick like control that amongst other things lets you select your focus point Image Fujifilm Corporation One thing I did not like about the X Pro 1 was that there were some buttons on the left of the LCD All buttons are now at the right meaning you can control this camera with just one hand For you it might be sipping cocktails but in my case it leaves the other hand free to hold a flash and an umbrella for example The grip is slightly bigger and more pronounced As a result the camera feels better in your hand And as mentioned this is now a camera that you can completely control with one hand Great news for photographers who like to smoke on a shoot No more cigarette breaks needed smoke and shoot as you go There s also a new Front Command Dial which in playback mode lets you browse flick back and forth through your images the rear one zooms in and out While shooting the FCD lets you adjust the shutter speed to the intermediary settings between the full stops that are marked on the dial It probably does some other things too but I haven t discovered those yet The manual was even more preproduction than the camera in other words non existent Those clever Fujifilm engineers incorporated the ISO dial into the Shutter Speed dial To change your ISO pull up the outside of the dial and rotate it The EV compensiation wheel now has a 3 to 3 range and by setting it to the C position you can even go from 5 to 5 by turning the new Front Command Dial Image Fujifilm Corporation Speaking of dials Probably the coolest feature is how Fujifilm managed to integrate the ISO dial on the top of the camera It s literally on the shutter speed dial you have to pull the outer ring of the shutter speed dial up and then rotate it
